Jumping in with some recs! This doubles as a contribution to Femslash February: two lists of 50 f/f fics, one posted after the last [community profile] halfamoon and the other posted just now.

ALIEN SPACE LESBIANS of the FUTURE: Recs from series featuring some combination of aliens, spaceships, and futuristic technology. And lesbians, obviously.
Fandoms: Doctor Who, Sarah Jane Adventures, Battlestar Galactica, Caprica, Red Dwarf, Star Trek, Better Off Ted, Lilo & Stitch, Animorphs, Kim Possible, Xenogenesis Series.

Lots of yuri! (Mostly canon!): Anime/manga recs, ranging from "a developing f/f romance is the main focus" to "plotty ensemble stories where the canon f/f couple plays a significant part" to angsty pining to various flavors of darkfic.
Fandoms: Hellsing, Sailor Moon, Madoka Magica, Revolutionary Girl Utena, Read or Die, Maria-sama ga Miteru, Serial Experiments Lain.

Needs tags for: Red Dwarf, Better Off Ted, Animorphs, Kim Possible, Xenogenesis Series, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Maria-sama ga Miteru

Total running time is 3 hours 39 minutes.

It occurs to me that while I have written new fic and done recs and all that sort of thing for [ profile] halfamoons past and present, I don't think I've ever catalogued my own female character-focused fic. And, well, that's most of what I write, so it's worth doing, I suppose. This is not an exhaustive list, but it is some of the stuff I'm more fond of. Most of it is a few years old, since life has been intervening in the fic writing during the last year or two.

A Fairer House than Prose (Irina Derevko, written February 2011)

Battlestar Galactica
The Signs that the Signmakers Made (Laura Roslin, written June 2007)
Eschatos (Laura Roslin and the Opera House women, contains some Roslin/Adama, written January 2008)
Latter Days (Anastasia Dualla and Laura Roslin, written November 2008)
Infinite Regress (The Origin Stories Remix) (Athena, Lord of Kobol, and Pythia, written for [ profile] bsg_remix in July 2009)

Five Things That Never Happened to Xhalax Sun (written August 2006)
wee untitled Chiana and Moya ficlet (written April 2007)

Lie to Me
Five Things Gillian Foster Has Never Told Anyone (written January 2010)

Stargate: SG-1
Of Belonging to Another (Sam Carter, Vala Mal Doran, and Sarah Gardner, written July 2006)
The Sea with its Deepness (Janet Fraiser, written March 2008)

Pic spams:
Pic Spam: Gender-swapped Mission Impossible (Note: this was a swapping of the late 80's remake they tried, with Phelps and Collier's kid)

Also, because Ros Myers (of Spooks/MI-5) is awesome, two pic spams I came across in my journeys over the last week:
a) 11 random reasons to love Ros Myers
b) Two pic spams about Ros Myers - Both contain spoilers and are by [ profile] aletheia08

Battlestar Galactica ('03) - No Easy Answers - Ellen Tigh brings Laura Roslin some alcohol on New Caprica. Drunkenness happens.

Doctor Who/Torchwood
Stages of Grief - the women of Torchwood, post-Children of Earth
Living in a Photograph (where I'll find you waiting someday) - Donna Noble, series five--implied spoilers through The Pandorica Opens
Divergence - post-Whovie, Grace Holloway focused. After stopping the end of the world in a time machine, learning to just be a doctor again isn't hard... mostly. Then again, there are aliens out there.

Nikita - Conspiracy Theory - Jaden-focused. Everyone has an agenda, some of them are less obvious than others.

Five Things That (Probably) Never Happened to Sarah Corvus - Bionic Woman 2007 (Bones, NCIS, Torchwood, BTVS, Blake's 7)
Picking up Stragglers - Pirates of the Caribbean/Star Trek 2009, Anamaria should have known they couldn't handle a simple resupply without her.
Thumbelina - Doctor Who/BSG, Dodo Chaplet has a conversation with an Eight.
Pull the Pin - Burn Notice/Stargate: Atlantis, Fiona knows a guy who knows a guy, and Laura Cadman's just on an enforced vacation. Two explosives afficianados, one bar. What could possibly go wrong?
Another Day Gone - Law and Order: Criminal Intent/Marvel's X-Men, It's the end of the world, and Eames and Wheeler are learning to survive.

Here are 4 vid recs: these are vids that I keep coming back to watch again and again because they are so awesome.

I did a female character meme during January, and hope it's okay to link to it here.

Most posts are picspams, and there are a couple of vids, one for Cybill/Maryann, and one of Theo, from Jeremiah.

I tried to avoid repeating fandoms, and tried to ignore the women I thought it was most obvious I loved (Janeway, Ivanova, Scully, etc). Some posts are about a character, some are about pairings, and some are about an entire show.

Thirty days of women I love. )

I'm working steadily on my 30 Days of Female Awesome meme, but I'm so anal retentive that I need to have most of it completed before I start posting. On my last day I've been collecting a list of vid recs pertaining to the awesome ladies I've been writing about, and I figured I'd share what I have so far here. Fandoms represented are Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Battlestar Galactica, Veronica Mars, Supernatural, and Doctor Who.

Over here at my journal

Hope you enjoy!

Hi there! I took advantage of the 30 Days of Female Characters meme that was going around, only I wasn't really up for all 30 days so I wound up combining it into one picspam. If you'd like to check it out, it's here on my journal!

In November, I did a 30 Days of Awesome Women meme (though I cheated and did 32 days), with a post a day about my favorite female characters, including a little discussion about each, pics and recs. Here are links to all the posts.

Title: Lucky Charm
Fandom: Battlestar Galactica
Author: [ profile] sabaceanbabe
Rating: PG
Word count: 550
Beta: [ profile] lyssie
Character: Margaret "Racetrack" Edmondson
Summary: The rational side of her brain occasionally mocks her for it, but the superstitious side always points out that she is still alive, even after all that the fates (and the Cylons) have thrown her way.

Lucky Charm

Title: Fighting Back in Three (or More) Dimensions
Author: Zinke
Rating: PG for language.
Characters: That would be telling. *g*
Warnings: Total, complete and utter crack with a generous side order of mockage.
Spoilers: Big one for Battlestar Galactica if you haven’t seen the whole series yet. If you’ve ever seen an episode of Sanctuary and/or Leverage, you’ll be fine.
Disclaimer: Not mine. Just borrowing for a bit of shameless mocking. No infringement intended.

Author’s Notes: A while back, this flow chart made the rounds on the internet. Needless to say, I was not very impressed with what the chart had to say. Turns out, a whole bunch of other people I know weren’t all that happy with it, either. *g*

( "So we’re in agreement; this thing is absolute dren. The question is: what are we going to do about it?" )

This is a picspam I made last August, celebrating the unsung heroines of Battlestar Galactica and characters underappreciated by fandom or canon.

picspam here!

I made a list of fic recs for Battlestar Galactica: gen(ish) stories about women who weren't in the opening credits.

I don't have any links for gen stories about D'Anna Biers/Three, and very few for Sixes (not Caprica). So if you can add to my list, please comment here or there.

I also ended a thirty-day meme about favorite female characters with a tribute to the women of Battlestar Galactica.
