The Yuletide is now DIAMONDS.  
I'm doing Yuletide for the first time evar. It's going to be so exciting! Hopefully I will not screw it up in any dramatic way with my n00bness.

Fandoms I nominated:

Babylon 5 (Talia/Garibaldi OMG. It would be the best xmas evarrr.)
RPF - Stargate Atlantis (This is why I signed up. I do whatever anr tells me to.)
But I'm A Cheerleader
Cupid (1998 tv)
Jake 2.0

I couldn't think of anything amazing for the 6th fandom nom (I thought of NewsRadio, because I wrote lots of crappy Dave/Lisa fic when I was a teenager, but in my experience fic for that show is pretty universally terrible? IDK. Also, the fandom when it existed was creepy and full of redhead fetishists). I do love that Old Spice Guy is a fandom in the list of dropdowns. I can't really see this for fic? What's the point if you can't see and hear him? I want a techno club remix, though. (I'm sure this exists, I'll have to look for it.)

In sparktober news, there's a great post of best-of link collections here! Go and leave recs!! :-D

Good thing we both have such great ideas!

(Help. I'm making a fake TV show about the first martian colony for a meme. What can I call it? I'm afraid if I call it Men of Mars someone will object because of all the wimmin of mars.)

Das Boy named it "Ares" for me. I'll go with that. :)

Torri/Joe! Of course! Check out mah list of names:


I downloaded pics of everybody and am characterizing right nowww. I think I might make Torri be Russian. I've also cast Nicole deBoer as Jason's love interest, because, omg, how cute, right??

Main story point is that they're the first scientific expedition to Mars, meant to set up the first manned research station and pave the way for future colonization... except Earth stops talking to them, and so they basically have to set up a sustainable colony by themselves in, like, the least hospitable environment ever. (But they'll look totally hot the whole time, which is important.)

I'm having a hard time figuring out how to make Jason be a Brilliant Scientist, y'know? It's tough! I thought about making him the pilot of the spaceship Ares that gets them to Mars, but I'd really kind of like that to be Joe's job (Joe = pilot always, IDK), because I thing he will angst pretty when he realizes that he basically has no function at all once the ship lands. Except have adventures with Torri.

You could always make Jason one of those accidental geniuses -- you know, he has the photographic memory, has the incredibly high IQ, but that just makes everything so easy, and easy is boring, whereas experimenting with drugs, on the other hand -- always crazy and unexpected fun. ;)

If Torri's Russian, can she at least be like a sort of language savant where she knows quite a few and does not talk with a Russian accent all the time? y/n?

Regardless: I love your show already. Ares FTW!
