qaf and the wonderousness of Daphne
children of dune - leto 1

Thinking about Daphne is doing something weird to me.

I want to slash her.

Be aware that in my fannish history, I've done femmeslash a total of *twice*, and let's all face it Voyager fans, Janeway and Seven are about as OTP as they come if they could penetrate through *my* sheer lack of slash goggles at the time I was in the fandom.

Yet here I am, looking at Daphne, thinking, hmm.

I partially blame soundczech for this, and julad, because I'm starting to carry a little torch for the girl.

See, because I can see this for her as experimental at very least. Her best friend's gay, he's seeped in the culture and the mythology of Liberty Ave, and she's constantly exposed to the reality and the stereotypes. She and Justin went to Babylon together for the first time. There's a really good chance she's his only straight friend that isn't a blood relation or part of his Liberty family. He tells her almost everything. She's like Michael, but with the sex and crush gotten rid of early on so they can go from there without issues. And also, without the whining. She was beside Justin through the nightmare that was St. James, was there at his prom with him, was there when he was recovering his memories. They had sleepovers together (and anyone but me think, huh, seventeen year olds having sleepovers that the parents are okay with? Don't tell me the gay was a surprise). They live together now. So...hmm.

So it wouldn't be a huge jump for her to think about it, even if at first it's just in theory. Maybe laughing off getting hit on at the GLC one night, but sort of wondering about it the next day. Maybe she goes clubbing with Justin when Brian's out one night and does hits with him in the bathroom and there's this girl that's checking her out. And usually, she'd laugh it off, but tonight, she's feeling reckless and what if'ish. She's only nineteen.

It could totally happen.

*gets glazed look*

Oh, yeah. Go for it. I'd read that in a second.

Aww, thanks for the vote of confidence. I'm staring at Word, because right until I decided to try writing it? Had so many ideas.

RIGHT until I opened Word.

*looks at Word* There's a vendetta invovled here, I swear.

I could totally see Daphne being bi. I would love to write a femmeslash fic with her, because I adore Daphne. She smacks Justin back in place when he needs it. She's definitely hot.

*nodnodnod* God yes. She's smart and levelheaded and sexy and strong.

I could totally see Daphne being bi. I would love to write a femmeslash fic with her...

*pokes* Daphne *deserves* it. She *does*. Dont' you feel it's your duty? You know, to the fandom. To poor, underrepresented Daphne.

*nodnodnod*

*pokes back*

We should write it together!

No. I'm really doing my homework...

(Deleted comment)
*dies laughing*

I will try.

*nods* Completely agree. It's almost a natural progression that she should wonder just a little about herself.

...and anyone but me think, huh, seventeen year olds having sleepovers that the parents are okay with? Don't tell me the gay was a surprise...

*snerk* Good point.

When Mom was like, you're spending the night with Daphne *again*, without so much as a look of, hmm, I was like, you *so* know about The Gay, mom. You *so* know.

*happy whistling*

Oh, please slash Daphne! I loved her so much, and she was a fine and supportive friend for Justin.

Now I need to price QaF DVDs. I was *over* this show. Over it.

Great.

But I'll deal. *g*

Gail

Ninety and one hundred soemthing, I and II, on Amazon.

Not that I go there and stare at them longingly or anything. *G* Will totally probably be my birthday present to myself. *nodnodnod*

Commeee to the QaF. It's the Happy Place.

At DeepDiscountDVD, season 1 is $86.39 and season 2 is $86.30. So maybe that'll help you get them as your birthday present. I hope so.

Maybe I'll come over, but I got so damned annoyed at season 2 when I was taping it off Showtime that I stopped, which is why I couldn't send you all of season 2. *g* But maybe having all the episodes and being able to watch them without waiting would be a Good Thing... Must think on this.

Thank you for wanting me in your new fandom in any way. That makes me happy. :-D

(and anyone but me think, huh, seventeen year olds having sleepovers that the parents are okay with? Don't tell me the gay was a surprise)

Yeah, I was very much thinking that.

The femslash sounds good. Daphne's exposition-girl 90% of the time, so it would be nice for her to get some hot gay sex of her very own.

*nod* She deserves it. She does. She really, really does.

Be aware that in my fannish history, I've done femmeslash a total of *twice*, and let's all face it Voyager fans, Janeway and Seven are about as OTP as they come if they could penetrate through *my* sheer lack of slash goggles at the time I was in the fandom.

This just had me sputter all over my keyboard. What a mess.
Um, same here just without the writing. Even I saw it, and I was up till my nose, um forehead - okay fine, my head was actually underwater - drowned in PT stories. Slash, what slash?

And Daphne. I'd love to see her slashed, not because I'm much for femslash but I always loved her character. I don't think it's too far-fetched, either. I mean the girl asked her gay best friend to sleep with her. I can see her trying it at least once just for the heck of it.

Me too. Drowned in P/T, but still staring at the Janeway/Seven going, whoa.

Absolutely. Especially with her exposure, she'd at very minimum be curious about it.

And also, without the whining.

This just hit me as soooooo damn funny. Still chuckling.

omfg...i was totally thinking the same thing today...i had this whole idea in my head about having Daphne become entranced with some older lesbian...and then having a bit of sexual crisis since she had never been sexually attracted to a woman before...you know the whole early 20's sexual identity confusion college thing...She totally deserves some action...

*nod* It's very believable with her life and her friends and her age. Oh yes, deifnitely.

I'd read it too, chica. Looks like I'm not alone.

Also, uh. *cough* If you, um. Have any good QaF recs for a newbie? That would be good. Um. Send them my way.

http://seperis.illuminatedtext.com/qafrecs.html

There are lots of good rec pages, this one is just mine. The Refugee Board also has a great recs thread, or so I've heard. And go to mintwitch's memories for Word of the Day. It's *so* freaking good.

*grins* All of London's fic is good--seh has five stories on her site. anything by any QaF person on my friendlist is good. And some others--you'll see.

Yay! Come to teh dark side. We're *fun*. And we slash canoical!

Justin and Brian--theirloveissotextualcanony!

Ooooooo, fic. *savors* I'll read this with a biiig smile on my face.

Also (she asked carefully) do you know of any places one could perhaps find QaF RPS? If the very words are fire to thine ears, just let me know...a lot of people hate the idea of real-people slash, and I don't want to sow annoyance on my friendslist. But if you have any recs or know anyone who might, that'd be great.

*snickers* Sometimes I think I was tempted into writing RPS by a friend *just* to assure I could never, ever throw a single stone. *eg*

Honestly, I don't know. I haven't seen any, but that doesn't mean much, since I'm still finding the QaF stuff on LJ by inches. If I run across any, will totally remember to forward you links.

Come to usss. We are pretty and make good fic. And also, have Brian.

Someone should really write QaF RPS. I've been lazily formulating a manifesto to that end, but as most of the people on my friendslist aren't QaF people, I don't think it would be useful.

To put upon you again, do you have any nontraditional QaF recs? Odd pairings? AUs? Brian and Justin are a beauty to behold, don't get me wrong, but I always get hooked into fandoms for the rareslash and the ones who don't get laid.

(I know I can depend on you to tell me when I'm being a pain in the ass here. *grins*)

Silverlake for some Blake fic by Annie.

Hmm. Non-trad is hard to find, actually, but Across the Pond is the most complete I've seen.

Hmm. You know, those are the only two I can think of. On the main page of my LJ are links to the QaF forums I know of. Those are good places if you want to maybe make requests on finding fic.

That help?

And trust me, you, darling, are *never* a bother. *hugs*

Wow.

There's...a powerful lotta badfic out there.

But yes, some good stories.

*walks away murmuring "RPS...y'know, someone should do RPS..." whistle, whistle....*

Hee! We did! Me and velena. Now we must have The Angst, since let's face it, Justin faced his sexuality really easily and dammit, Daphne should have it harder. *nodnodnod*
