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

Femslash ahoy )

Thanks to [ 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. )

20 Farscape Icons for Round 13 of [ profile] farscape_20in20 .

There were no themes per se this month, but I chose to do an overarching one :)

Many thanks to [ profile] charlie_bz for the push :-)  This is the first time I've made non-Farscape icons, and I can't wait to make more.

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  [ 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 [ 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!

...and I realized I'm hoping Chiana dies.  Which would be sad, but not nearly as sad as her free will and dignity being stripped away, her having literally no choice in who she has sex with (isn't that called rape?), her being suddenly, slavishly devoted to Nebari ideals, and no one giving a shit or thinking this might be odd, or of some concern.  

Alive she will continue to be used and abused and alternately ignored and maligned.  Dead she will be a free spirit, with Zhaan, D'Argo, Jool, and Sikozu for company.

Huh.  Maybe her death at this point wouldn't be sad at all.

I'm assuming this is a fairly unpopular thought...spoilers through Subject 9.  Rambly too, brain is still somewhat on the fritz and I need to do other things, but needed to get this off my chest because it's all I can think about this morning.

arevhat: (that's that)
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.
