31 Days of Female Characters

I've been admiring the 30 days of Female Characters posts. I know I'm a little late to the party but I thought I'd post five women a day to write about all of my favorite female characters in books, movies and TV before this event ends. I'm also not a big sci fi genre person although I'm open to it. So most of my favorite female characters are kind of underrepresented in this journal.

Lots and lots of Cordelia Chase

So I did her for hbic20in20 and my entries are up! :)  There's also Harmony (AtS), Dollhouse and Mulan icons :D  Pop over to this post to see the pretties!

   

OH and seeing as I'm posting, I might as well say this.  After my Jenny fic (which I think a few of you are following) I'm embarking on another self-challenge.  Actually inspired here thanks to bottleofsmoke19 and her awesome Jill vid.  Basically, I got all inspired by this decided to write a Jill/Rillian + Jill/Eustace fic.  Thanks to my university's overbundance of books on Lewis and gender, this has spun way out of control.  There's an overview of what I intend to do and why at my journal here, but here's the potential fic synposes...

- Those That Dream of Love
Jill, a struggling feminist at university, dreams of returning to Narnia.  Here she encounters Rillian, also struggling as a new king, and they fall in love.  But Jill, after confronting her own reality, must realise that her place is in the real world, and understand her feelings for Eustace. 
With this fic I intend to show Lewis' university world, and how a woman struggled to get an education.  Eustace's views are going to be similar to Lewis', so I'm going to try and understand him and with Eustace's relationship with Jill mirror Lewis' marriage to Joy Davidson, and his acceptance of women.

- In Defence of Our Dreams
(title will probably change)  Basically, the real reason Susan didn't return.  She discovered her sexuality, yes, but after years of therapy and questioning her reality thanks to her confusion of being in Narnia so long, Susan loses her faith in God (and Narnia).  This is the best thing for her, and it's basically about her life.

Of course there's no way I'm going to be able to write these before halfamoon ends, so I just thought I'd let you guys know so all that's interested can friend me so they can get updates of the project, and read the finished fic!

31 Days of Female Characters: Women Who Got Screwed Over By Canon

I thought I’d make the next five female character into a theme and talk about the women screwed by canon- even if I’m not doing the thematic 30 Days of Awesome Ladies that I’ve seen circulating. Mind you, these are women who were screwed by canon but who I still adore despite their late addition warts. Also, while I may have issues with the futures of some of the other women on my list (**cough CJ Cregg, Hermione Granger, Dagny Taggart and Lilah Morgan**) or stupid-ass creative decisions (**Dana Whitaker and Kaylee Frye**), these following women have more serious degeneration problems. I completely adore all of them and celebrating them is a big part of my posts. However, I can’t talk seriously about them without their writer-induced degeneration playing a big role.

This will be in two phases because I have a lot to say which goes from I have so much to say that I can't say it right now to I've got to read about agriculture and you're not with me and go to hell. That's a hint for a character on this list, btw!
