I'm usually not a fan of posting to comms, but since this celebration is about to close I figured it wouldn't hurt to share some recs I've posted in my journal over the past few weeks.

12 femslash recs from Doctor Who, Glee, Leverage, and Merlin.

2 Doctor Who femslash recs.

7 female-centric Star Trek recs.

I wanted to write something original, but I just started a new job that's chewing up my creativity for the moment. So here are some women-centric stories I've written in the past year.

You Certainly Have a Way With People
Gaila/Jim | adult (violence, language, and threatened/attempted rape) | 4,000 words | A couple of Klingons decide to pick a fight with the legendary Kirk while he's on shore leave. Gaila defends her captain with much bad-assery ... and a bat'leth.

If You Can't Crawl
Gaila, Charlene Masters | teen | 1,300 words | Things that get left behind, and things that do not.

This is a post in celebration of femslash. Because I am primarily a Star Trek fangirl, it will also be a post in celebration of Star Trek femslash.

First, I’d like to share with you my own manifesto: Why I Femslash. Not fandom-specific, but a general cri de coeur. (And I invite your own contributions as well!)

Next, a few femslash stories of my own (DS9 and VOY/TNG crossover):
my stories about ladies in space )

And finally, femslash vid and fic recs from around the TNG, DS9, and VOY fandoms. This is far from exhaustive – I spun my own brain around just thinking of all the possibilities! – so think of this arrangement not as a full menu but as a little amuse-bouche.
trek femslash fic and vid recs )


And props to one and all for a lovely, ladyfull fest!

I posted this to my journal a while back but thought I would share it here. I do love Dr Beverly Crusher on TNG but I also am in awe of her hair. You could call it a fetish. Anyway, this is an awesome community and I hope ya'll enjoy this  mini spam :D

I've been wanting to look back at the shows with strong women characters which influenced me growing up (and which still do), so here they are. Photos are taken from wherever. I'm really sorry about not giving credit, I've just never done this before and some of these have been wandering around my hard drive for years. There are minor spoilers for Star Trek TNG and DS9, Earth: Final Conflict, Babylon 5, Firefly, Stargate: SG-1, West Wing, The X-Files, Criminal Minds, and The Wire.

To put this in perspective, I turn twenty-four this year (2009). I started watching Star Trek from about age seven or eight, then Earth: Final Conflict and X-Files around ten or eleven, Babylon 5 in early teens, and the rest spread out until all of Stargate in one long marathon this past summer and Criminal Minds and The Wire now. These ladies have really made an impact on who I turned into because I had few other strong female role models around me as a kid and teen. Certainly none in the trades, the active military, or aviation.

Cut for photos and commentary. )

Title: Physician, heal thyself
Rating: G
Character/pairing: Guinan, gen
Summary: For [ profile] belladonnalin; prompt was "you've got nothing to lose". My sincerest apologies for delivering this so much later than I promised it. Guinan's mysterious demeanour makes her unexpectedly hard to write. I hope I managed it.
