I couldn't pick just one!

Kahlan is awesome because she is kind and likes small animals and children and things, but will also fuck your shit up without a second thought in the name of truth and justice. She has kickass magical powers but can also take out armies without them, mostly by dazzling them with her hair and then pulling knives out of her boots.

Cara is awesome because she is snarky and hilarious and utterly unapologetic about who she is. She's on this amazing journey of rediscovering her humanity, and it's fantastic to watch. She also enjoys making out with other hot chicks in leather from time to time.

Here lies happy flailing, basically.

Legend of the Seeker! spoilers through 2x16 )

Farscape! spoilers through 3x04 )

Buffy! My viewing experience of Buffy continues to be entirely non-chronological and weird, but I continue to enjoy, even though I think that I am glad for several reasons that I wasn't a fan when it was on air.

I did have one question, though, after watching the scene in 4x20 with not exactly a plot spoiler )

Remix sign-ups close in 12 hours! In particular they're after more Sherlock Holmes writers.

lgbtfest prompt claiming ends tomorrow!

For the latter, I have plumped for the following, on account of how the prevalence of gender essentialism in high fantasy really hacks me off. Also, I have Seeker on the brain.

1778. Legend of the Seeker; any Confessor character or OC; The Confessors are all female, the ritual sees to that. So what happens when one of them is trans? (Does he come out? How do other people take it? How does he deal with other people's assumptions? and so on.)

+ Thing one, recs!

Graduate Vulcan for Fun and Profit by [livejournal.com profile] lazulisong (Star Trek Reboot, Kirk gen)

I suspect this has been linked all over the place, but it's just the most brilliant Reboot fic I've read in some time. It made me tear up, it made me think, it made me laugh like a drain. LOVE.

Vid insta-rec: Imma Be by [livejournal.com profile] talitha78 (Leverage, Hardison, Parker, Eliot)

This is bouncy and completely charming, and if [livejournal.com profile] talitha78 wants to keep vidding all of my OT3s, that would be fine.

+ Thing two, there is a send postcards to Katie and Angel project! I very much approve.

+ Thing three, there's this show that I love. It's about a young man who discovers he has a magic destiny, a woman with really good hair and magical powers-- and no, it's not Merlin. I have fallen into the sweet, sweet embrace of Legend of the Seeker, and I'm kind of startled by how much I love it. I'd write a pimping post, but ignipes made the most epic and hilarious post ever about why you should watch it (featuring chickens! magical red dildos! Richard's adorable face! Kahlan's badassery!)

What I would say is, you have to have a healthy appreciation of often-cheesy high fantasy (and I love that shit, so I'm golden). But once you get into it the plot arc is compelling - indeed, each episode has consequences for the plot and the characters, shocking! - the leads are all great, and there's a whole host of fabulous guest stars. A lot of women being kickass in very different ways, a reasonable amount of variation on villain-of-the-week, and there are even some characters who aren't white and don't die! I think it is especially soothing for me right now because it deftly avoids all the things that are irritating me with Merlin.

Also, KAHLAN > EVERYONE.

+ Thing four, I have Google Wave invites! If anyone wants one, drop a comment or an email (such.heights at gmail dot com) with your email address.
