Holy shit, I just finished reading "Slow Show," and now I don't know what to do with my heart. BUT ALSO, have you all seen the remix by attheborder and curtaincall?? [link]
Fan Fiction II: Great story! Where's the sequel?
This thread is for fanfic recs, links, and discussion, but not for actual posting of fanfic.
That remix is brilliant! I love fandom.
And Slow Show owns my whole goddamn heart.
Thank you, Kate, my breakfast did not work (baking powder is an important ingredient, kids, don't leave it out) and now I am grinning all over my face.
"Slow Show" lives in my head, rent free. I actually resented "The Witcher" when we started watching that last year, because it wasn't "Warlock". It's just. So good.
Do fan film links go here? Because this article does a not-terrible job of talking about fic, especially in the context of responses to R*wling.
Remember how cracktastic SGA fic got? Well, MCU fic may be moving that way. [link] Delightfully so. I can hope this is the start of a trend.
DH independently decided to watch Stargate Atlantis. I have seen bits and pieces while he's watching, which made me realize that the show in my brain is much more informed by the fandom and the fic than what actually aired. That was a good fandom. I may have to revisit some.
Star gate Atlantis is one of my weird fandoms where I read the fic, but have only watched one or two episodes.
That is a solid life choice. It's a wildly uneven show.
Bah. I read a relatively-new SG-1/SGA crossover that was recced on a DW comm this week, and ... yikes. It read like something from the mid-1990s. All the male characters were gay, and none of the female characters had any lines at all. Oh, and Elizabeth Weir was a traitor. And Sam Carter was nowhere to be seen.
And yet the story was written in 2019.
I do not miss the misogyny of classic slash fandoms.
