This post is for celebrating and loving your favorite under-appreciated women.

Rules nicked from bofoddity:


1. Start a thread and put the character's name and the canon they come from in the subject line.

2. Those who love the character comment on the thread with squee, thoughts, fic/art/vid recs, picspams, essays, links and everything they can think of. Make sure your character gets all the love and the attention she deserves.

3. If a character has a thread and you want to talk about her, comment to the thread in question. General comments and threads for new characters go to the main post.

4. Focus on the love. This is an all positivity, all time post. Embrace your happy!

5. Absolutely no bashing allowed. Please avoid making negative comparisons to other characters, other character types and "well this character sucks more!" kind of comments. Those characters and character types have their fans too and hey, it's a love post. Save negativity for other things.
No bashing actresses or the other versions of the character either. Keep in mind that mileages vary and what doesn't work for you may work for someone else.

Tell us about your favorite female friendships! How did they become friends? What do they do to show their love for each other? How far are they willing to go to support their friend? What is it that makes them special?

For Half A Moon last year, I wrote enthusiastically about Tominaga Sei, the heroine of the manga Kaze Hikaru. This year, I'm going to showcase the other women of Kaze Hikaru: the supporting characters and minor characters who nevertheless have a lot of personality and a lot of heart.

I approached the beginning of February hoping to write some fic about the awesome ladies of the Final Fantasy game series, but it soon became clear that I wanted to write meta instead.

Title: In Defense of X-2
(on Dreamwidth/on LiveJournal)
Fandoms: Final Fantasy X-2, Final Fantasy X
Characters: Yuna, Rikku, Paine, Lucil, Lulu, Leblanc...
Rating: G. Contains spoilers.
Summary: My analysis of FFX-2 from a feminist perspective, and why I think X-2 is a stronger portrayal of women than many people give it credit for.

As part of this community is celebrating the unsung heroines of fandom, I made a picspam + minimeta for Daphne on No Ordinary Family. She is most definitely unsung...and one of the major reasons I'm watching the show.

 After the cut I'll tell you why Daphne is tres vunderbar.

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.

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 [personal profile] 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.

In the still ongoing unpopular woman love post I made a thread for Lana Lang from Smallville because she's perhaps the most hated female character I've ever seen. This is what I wrote about her.

Lana Lang: The Tribute )

Recs )

As an extra I must also give massive props for Kristin Kreuk, who started out clumsy and for whom it took some time to grow into her actress shoes (not unlike Tom Welling. what, it took him time to grow to his actress shoes? yes, it did!), but who nevertheless made Lana soar in the end. And even if you don't agree with that you can't not agree with the fact that she's extremely, unreally beautiful. Excuse me, I have some swooning to do.

I've posted over at my DW a list of ten (well, eleven, but who's complaining about a bonus?) women who I think need a little more love. They're not all unpopular, though some are, but in general, they're not fandom-at-large's Bright Shiny Objects.

List is here, with fandoms including: Alias, Ashes to Ashes, Burn Notice, Doctor Who, Glee, How I Met Your Mother, Lie to Me, Mad Men, Profit, & Wire in the Blood

(Mods, may I please have a "Lie to Me" tag?)
