Fringe, Olivia

(no subject)

I have put together a collection of my woman-centric fiction for those who are interested; the link leads to AO3 because it was easier for me to "collect" them all there! These are primarily Star Trek fics, but there's a smattering of others including Fringe, Firefly/Serenity, White Collar, Gaiman's The Endless, and Resident Evil, among others.

Also, I manage a community, fandom_women, that is meant to be a pan-fandom celebration of women; it's new yet and very quiet but it's there!

Edited to Add: For those of you who like Star Trek, I cannot recommend highly enough the two Valeris stories I have received as gifts:

Every Good Villain by igrockspock which focuses on Valeris' trial, and

I am not in love with salvation by medie which focuses on her life afterward and the stories that are told.

Fic: The Story Needed Mending (Sanctuary, Kate/Ashley)

Chalk me up as yet another writer who didn't have time to write something new for this challenge. However, last year I wrote my first-ever femslash-with-a-plot for a Sanctuary fic exchange, and I'm rather proud of it--it's almost more of a character study of Kate than anything else, and I loved writing her interactions with Helen.

The Story Needed Mending, 18k, Kate/Ashley. Once upon a time, there was a girl and a ghost. Then it got complicated.

Seven Pieces of Meta on Buffy the Vampire Slayer by Stormwreath


Hi,

      (edited om Saturday afternoon) as has been kindly been pointed out one of these is in fact by another author. See if you can find it :-) Big clue (mostly to self), it's under a different name...)
 
      well you know how some of us are fanboys over actors (James Marsters; David Boreanz; Christian Kane; Gerard Depardieu; Toshiro Mifune...); actresses; (Louise Brooks; Greta Garbo; Amber Benson; Honor Blackman; Judi Dench...), etc... etc... etc...
 
   Well, I have a fanboyish attraction to the meta written by </a></font></b></a>stormwreath  I find his meta fascinating, whatever opinions I may hold (we certainly don't agree about everything), but he holds your attention; gives you thoroughly entertaining; interesting, and well-thought out arguments.
 
   These are seven, in honour of the seven seasons of the show, pieces of meta on the show that brought me full speed into online fandom (it was another woman, Kerry Weaver - from ER - that got me online in the first place).
 
   Hope you will take the time to read.

The Twelve Kingdoms

Last month I wrote up a rec post for The Twelve Kingdoms. I decided to make a few changes and post it here. This is a female centric look at this amazingly constructed fantasy world.

Many consider the fan translated version of the novels superior to the Tokyopop translation. Here is a link to the fan translated version. www.eugenewoodbury.com/
