Not even a microfic and a shifting POV but I wanted to write something today.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] damnedscientist 's latest thought-provoking post on Terra Firma, I inadvertently wrote an essay about Chiana this morning and thought I'd share it here as well, in case anyone was interested.  

It's not the most well thought out piece, and I missed some points I wanted to touch on, but it's the most writing I've done of any sort in awhile.  Thanks, Richard.


In which I long-windedly and off-topically respond to the idea that Jothee/Chiana was out of character. )

Jeremiah Crichton in ten pictures.

I'd say this was arguably the worst episode of the series, but I don't know who would argue it isn't. Maybe people who really, really, REALLY hate DALD.

The Flax in ten pictures.

I love this episode.

Staanz is my favorite one shot character of the season. I adore her. Someday I’ll write a story where she and Chiana meet and have a crazy adventure and drive D’Argo nuts.

I think John & Aeryn might kiss or something too? Yes, no, maybe? I have this in my head:



but I might be confused :p

Seriously though, I really enjoy them in this episode, particularly the discussion about the afterlife, and Aeryn's enthusiasm.

20 A Bug’s Life Icons for Round 11 of  [livejournal.com profile] farscape_20in20.

My original claim was Durka Returns but I wasn't getting anywhere, perhaps because I had it in my head that I should do the icons and my picspam for the episode at the same time.  The lovely [livejournal.com profile] sayuri_x allowed me to change my claim to A Bug's Life and I was able to knock them out in a very short time.  Thank you!

I cheated. There are only ten pictures as numbered, but I used fourteen caps.

I couldn't stop myself; I think it's this awful bug that almost goes away only to attack again with a vengeance. Someone call a Diagnosian.

#7 isn't all that 'wow', but it's one of my favorite early John moments. Watching Homesick John helped Homesick Me a hell of a lot when I moved overseas, and when he gets all teary and clutch-y, even knowing she isn't real, I just want to cuddle him.

Til the Blood Runs Clear in ten pictures.

I had 20 pictures (mostly of Aeryn...) in my "final" yes folder this time...I am terrified of how difficult this is going to be once Chi shows up LOL

I purposefully did not use the cap of the men shaking hands because while D'Argo physically returns the gesture here, I feel the mental component isn't there until the end of Revenging Angel.

They’ve Got A Secret in ten pictures.

I loved the set I did for DNAMS, so of course I hate this one. This is a rarely watched episode for me, but unlike TGIFA, making this picspam did not make me want to change that. Usually I have way too many pictures to choose from; this time I struggled to find ten compelling images. The plot may be decent (and it's certainly a pivotal episode, with Talyn's conception, and our first knowledge of Jothee and Lo'Laan) but visually I find it incredibly boring. Farscape did a lot of bottle episodes, but usually Moya is still beautiful, the lighting and shot composition are good, the characters look interesting...I don't know what was going on here.

But I've learned that people have extremely varied taste when it comes to graphics, so maybe someone will like it :-)

A note on how I do these: I load the episode into VideoStudio and scroll through it several times. Sometimes I will have specific scenes in mind before I begin, but I cap anything that catches my eye. Then I sort through the caps and try to find images that are both visually striking and which hopefully convey something meaningful about the plot or character. Often a cap I thought would be perfect turns out horrible once edited and resized, and "action" caps (such as D'Argo falling into space in this episode) are usually too blurry and/or dark to work with. Or a scene that was vital to the episode seems meaningless when reduced to a single frame.

Once I've edited all the workable caps I weed through them, placing them in "yes" and "no" folders until there are only 10 in "yes". And then I share them with you =D

DNA Mad Scientist in ten pictures.

While PK Tech Girl was the first episode I enjoyed, and TOBM was the first episode where I said, "Oh, I love that bit!", this episode made me realize I was in it til the end.

I know many of you love how bright the images in these picspams are. With "That Old Black Magic" I began with light and made them darker as they went along to reflect the nature of the episode, while this set is dark from beginning to end.

The brightness will be back, but I thought this was a good opportunity to play with mood.

That Old Black Magic in ten pictures.

It's getting harder and harder to only choose ten caps, but I must be strong and steadfast! #3 was going to be a bonus this time, but that is a dangerous road to go down, especially this early in the game.

Meh. This is quite possibly my favorite episode of the series, I loved the themes (and they seemed particularly well suited to my choice), but I'm just not satisfied D: I hope you like the results more than I do...

I wasn't going to attempt the Love Is In The Air challenge because like many of you, I didn't understand it. But [livejournal.com profile] john_scorpy (unknowingly) shamed me into it ;-) But you only get two because the third barely made sense even to me, and there isn't really anything clever or guess-y about these, because I still don't understand that aspect. Here's hoping I got the rest of it right, and if Team Module loses by 10 points, I'm sorry...
