The second Star Wars ‘ship, Qui-Gon/Obi-Wan, is up at ship_manifesto. See the ‘ship that brough Star Wars online fandom to the slash side! Fans might also enjoy tpm_flashback and quiobisupport, and of course Master and Apprentice gets a mention.
And for those of us still stuck in 1997, yes, someone is signing up to do Luke/Mara. And no, it’s not me: like I need more reason to rant. :D
You know you’ve been in fandom too long when your first response to Dear Insecure Fandom Drama Whore is “Preach it, sister!”
Ship_manifesto, a fannish Livejournal community dedicated to character pairings, has an essay up on Han & Leia. It features an explanation of the ‘ship (like we wouldn’t know! ;) and fan fiction recomendations. As far as I can tell this is the only Star Wars pairing currently featured, although Qui-Gon/Obi-Wan, Han/Luke, and Face Loran/Tom Phanan (!!) are in the queue.
Who knows what evils lurk in the hearts of fangirls?
Ah, who am I kidding? We had a wedding ceremony for a pair of cardboard cut-outs and a baby shower for a pineapple. We know.
I’ll admit it – anime/manga fandom kinda freaks me out. So I can’t say I’m surprised that fan label ‘Otaku’ is more or less Japanese for maniac – or, with a quick logical jump, scary fanboy.
Yeah. I don’t get it.
Diana: Oh, lordy! Those Jedi monk’s robes are hot, though. I think it’s the boots.
Sarah: Isn’t it always the boots?
Diana: Yeah. You know, leather always seems to be the “sexual” fabric, but here the Jedi wear cotton, and it’s sexy.
Sarah: Natch, it’s the fabric of our lives! Now with 98 percent more midichlorians.
Ladies after our own hearts.
Apparently, there is such a huge book of rules surrounding the Harry Potter franchise, that fans have had to get creative to pursue their passion.
In one instance, fans made Harry Potter Canadian!
Be grateful, my friends, that LFL is so nice in how they let us play in their galaxy.
