(Also, !Mezoti's IMDB page picture? Guh, although not exactly subtle. If only there were a way to AU canon enough to get aged-up Naomi/Mezoti. But Naomi's accelerated aging would be a pain in trying to get that to work, not that canon ever really remembered that detail anyway, not to mention that when the relevant subpart of canon ends, they're in opposite quadrants of the galaxy. Maybe one could abandon the pretense altogether and just write Scarlett/Marley RPF. I don't know, at a con or something. Whatever.)
(And Demetra's web site makes me wince. Just, no. Please, God, no. Jenny Grimaldi would have better sense. And also be too busy fighting vampires and/or playing baseball.)
(Now I really want to buy Scarlett's EP, because, I don't even know why. I do love one of the reviews, though: "I must say that she isn't well-known here in germany and the place where i live." Yeah, and everywhere else on the planet where people don't have encyclopedia knowledge of Star Trek: Voyager. Well, either Star Trek or Reba. So pretty much everywhere.)
Rescuing myself from the parentheticals, this reminds me that Mesektet (aka White Room Girl) from Angel is the star of the new remake of Fame, the one that Stacey Shirk claims "is better" in her song "Ten Dollar Solo" from Commentary!: The Musical. (I learned this when both the old and new versions of Fame showed up in my Netflix suggestions.) And also apparently the Fame remake "was directed by Kevin Tancharoen, brother of [Commentary!] co-creator Maurissa Tancharoen." Who is in the new season of The Guild.
(My embarassment squick caused me to pause Guild 5x01 about two-thirds of the way through, so I haven't seen it yet. Am sad that the season probably won't have any Venom/Riley content in it, though. Can they get a spin-off? I really just want to watch Michelle Boyd and Teal Sherer play evil bisexual gamers now. Because, yeah, awesome.)
(And somehow I've landed myself back into the land of the parentheticals. Boo.)
Also I have the vague recollection that Mesektet turned into one of those ubiquitous Disney Channel starlets, and that her older sister dated Sam Winchester?
Summary: They're both fucking her, and each of them knows the other is fucking her and doesn't like it, but they both like their balls attached too much to try to tell Faith who she can and cannot sleep with.
A/N: Title from "Black Leather" by Steve Jones and Paul Cook, covered by The Runaways in 1978 and Guns N' Roses in 1993. The 3_ships version of this story can be found here.

Title: Unfathomable Youth
Summary: Eve can't quite be controlled, but it is Lilah's job to try.
A/N: Thanks to soundingsea for the beta, and especially for pointing out the draft I gave her made no sense because I forgot to write a couple of paragraphs. I hate it when I do that.

Vote for this fic!
Title: Little Tiger
Pairing: Wesley Wyndam-Pryce/River Tam
Other Charcters: Faith, Tara, Inara
Summary: It's a very ancient saying, but a true and honest thought, that if you become a teacher, by your pupils you'll be taught.
Author's Note: This is a sequel of sorts to Twice Bless'd, but would fail as a ficathon story if it couldn't be read on its own.

Ari wondered what it meant that she guessed that most of my favorites were female. It means that she knows me well, because most of my favorites--all but four, plus the ambiguously-gendered Player--are female. Which is interesting, because many of these relate to early childhood, when my heterosexuality wouldn't have been a factor (right?). I'm not sure what it says that I've always found it easier to identify with (or at least be interested in) female characters than male ones, but I think it's pretty clearly true.

Gakked from likeadeuce (who actually dreamt it up, if I'm not mistaken, because she felt evil and wanted to mislead) and then from buffyannotater (whose poll this one resembles more), see if you can guess the following.
1) Shakespeare Play
2) Non-Shakespeare Play
4) TV show
10) Season of Angel
Also, ask me for top five lists, and I will provide you with the top things in the category you requested. Gakked from inlovewithnight.
And to prove I am a geek (as if I needed any more proof after the parentheticals in that last paragraph), I've spent many many hours over the last few days going through the archives over at femslash_minis and indexing the fics so they are searchable by character. So if you've been wondering why I haven't been reading my flist and commenting on all your brilliant posts and why my own posting has been sparse (and I know none of you have been wondering that but I like to pretend you have) that is the reason why. What is it that allows me to be so organized with fic? I don't know, because I don't seem to be able to get anything else organized. But I still need a screencap of Nandi if anyone has one.
So, tabulating the results, it turns out that we've had somewhere in the vicinity of 185 fics served. (My numbers are off because the total number of fics added up, with each fic being counted twice--once for each member of the pairing--except for the Kennedy/OFC which gets counted once should be an odd number, but isn't. So there are still issues with the index, which I expected. If you figure out what's wrong, or find I've done something unforgiveable like leave your fic off the list, don't hesitate to comment or email.)
So, I know the question on everyone's mind is: who's the slashiest? So here's the answers:
( Pairings ) ( Fics )
Which proves that Faith is the little black dress of Jossverse femslash, having been paired with 18 other Jossverse women and starring in a whopping 40 fics. That's quite a feat! But one which surprises no one, I suppose, because we all knew that Faith was, well, Faith. What is it that jennyo likes to say about Eliza Dushku and femslash? I forget, but I wish I didn't, because if I could remember then I'd sound all cool.
This prodigious amount of femslash (and believe me, I know now just how prodigious it truly is) would not, of course, exist if not for the brilliant idea and hard work of cadence_k.
ETA as I read everyone on my flist complaining about the weather: Lastly, yes, it is hot here too. 95 degreesF outside at this moment and it's frelling 9:30 at night. And work has no air conditioning. C'est la vie.
Because the more possibilities I thought of, the more cracktastic they became. Seriously, think of how cool some of the crossovers could be, with Wesley in Universe [Insert name here].
I may have regrets once my assignment arrives, though . . . I'll probably be wishing I offered to write crossovers that were a little, well, saner.
*Looks at icon and realizes one could have offered to write Wesley/Anne Catherick* Oh well, that'll have to wait for another day. And that reminds me I need to plot out that Drusilla/Anne Catherick AU I had been wanting to work on....
