A bunch of us in the podfic community wanted to contribute to [livejournal.com profile] halfamoon, so we have made an anthology of ficlets from the Awesome Ladies Ficathon.

The anthology contains 73 stories, from 41 fandoms, performed by 19 readers. The beautiful cover art was designed by [livejournal.com profile] aneas.

Total running time is 3 hours 39 minutes.

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!

I haven't had a chance to contribute as much as I would have liked to this round of [community profile] halfamoon, though I hope to get more in before the end. But in the meantime: Last June I hosted a HB(adass)IC poll at my journal. On the one hand, I have issues with these contests; the competitive, "there can only be one" nature of them when the only thing the characters have in common is their gender can be problematic. On the other hand, interactive celebration of Our Heroines! So we did the poll, and every time a character got voted out I drafted my friends recruited volunteers to write appreciation post/picspams for them. The result was 25 character love posts, and hopefully much fun had by all.

Nomination post, with 390 comments worth of female-character squee.

This was a great year for vids about women. Here are just a few of my favorite vids focusing on female characters since last Valentine's Day. (Obviously I'm leaving out a lot, so please feel free to add more links in the comments or post your own list if you think I've skipped something fantastic.)

click for the vids! )

For Vividcon in 2007, I VJed a show called Relationships Between Women... and last year at Vividcon I joked that if only I'd waited until 2009, I could have more than doubled the available pool of fantastic vids to choose from for this theme. So, I thought it would be fun to post the playlist from the actual show with my comments about why I chose what I did then, followed by a playlist for a virtual encore vidshow, or Relationships Between Women 2009 (if I had to do it again now). In both cases, the vids all focus on relationships between women. I tried to include as wide an emotional range and variety of relationships as possible, and the women in these vids are friends, lovers, rivals, sisters, enemies, partners, alter egos, or all of the above.

Then... )

I'd wanted to do a new story (or two) for the challenge, but I'm not sure it'll be done by midnight tomorrow. I'll manage the time better next year. :) In the meantime, here are my previous stories about women:

Vids in this post approach the certain aspects of their respective shows from more critical point of view, and some of them are frightening and uncomfortable to watch. They all succeed in making you think.

5 vids beneath the cut )
[identity profile] shati.livejournal.com
Under the cut are links to vids I haven't seen recced here yet, all focused on female characters. They don't make an alphabet, because the alphabet is beyond my cognitive powers at the moment, but they make awesome. Some of them are depressing, some of them are funny, some of them cause joy to leak out my ears (Whatever It Takes, I'm looking at you), and they're all worth watching.

We put them there )
[identity profile] charmax.livejournal.com
Please feel free to list your own A to Z of women centric fanvids or even adapt this for characters, action vids etc. I'd love to see other people's lists.

this way )

Please Note: I cannot guarantee quality with all of these vids. The challenge was to find them.

When I volunteered to create a layout for [livejournal.com profile] halfamoon, at first I was boggled by the idea of only picking a *few* characters to represent all of the awesome female characters we love in fandom. How impossible is that!? Whoever I picked, I knew I would be leaving out huge swaths of fandom! Anyway, what I eventually decided was to organize the layout, very roughly, in terms of the theme Mind, Body and Spirit.

4 basic photomanips behind the cut  )

And here are four icons, which are multi-shareable.

(For most of my icon sets, including the icons I'll be posting on this comm for the next two weeks, I go on a "first come, first served" basis, with icons being claimable by one person only, but I would love for these icons to be used by as many people as possible, in order to promote halfamoon! So if you like them, please take them. Please also feel free to make your own icons from the base manips, if you'd like.)
