Wow! A new nifty B5 community to start in January!

Witness the coolness at The Firing Line.

This makes me wonder if there's a DS9-specific drabble community. If not, I will start one.

Edited to add... that I consider the tentacle porn comment here to be a shout-out to me, andrastewhite, selenak and any others who have publicly wished for pairings including Londo (especially the so-obvious-it-writes-itself Londo/G'Kar *g*).

Thanks for the link - it looks very cool indeed. I should be able to read without fear of too many later season spoilers and even turn out a drabble or two myself if they're strongly based on the early episodes.

... is it a bad sign that I'm now plotting what to write for Knives and it involves flashbacks and twelve tentacles?

The mind is certainly compelled. *g*

Ursa/Londo?

Go ahead!

Re: Ursa/Londo?

Ursa/Londo? Go ahead!

How can I resist? They have canonical cute pet names and everything *g*.

I'll probably wait a bit to actually write it as I gather we learn more about Londo's youth in later episodes, but the idea is certainly there. Yasmin said she was envisioning summer palaces and fountains during Knives but is making me write it. (Mind you, she promises Narn fic when she's done watching the series.)

Also, I can't help thinking that Londo/Urza in the past makes Londo/G'Kar in the future that much easier *g*. When I first discovered metafandom I read some Kirk/Spock slash just out of curiosity, and there was this old friend of Kirk's (whose name escapes me) who was often referred to as a past lover of his in order to prepare the way for the K/S relationship.

Re: Ursa/Londo?

To show my utter geekness: The friend of Kirk's was probably Gary Mitchell, since in the very first episode, he was established with best friends credentials (this was before McCoy showed up, and pre-bonding with Spock), and Kirk had to kill him as he got megalomaniac when able to access an alien superpower. All very angsty.

Hm, I don't think there's much more about Londo's youth we learn in seasons 3-5, though there is more info on life on Centauri Prime (the first six eps of season 4, for example, are set there). One important bit of information, the only one I recall, comes in season 5's The Very Long Night of Londo Mollari when we find out that Londo's very first marriage, the one to the nameless dancer, which he gave a humorous spin for Garibaldi's benefit in season 1, did in fact end because his family insisted on it ("I died again that day"), not because he fell out of love the next morning, and that he's still deeply ashamed he gave in.

And yes, Londo/Urza in the past would pave the way for Londo/G'Kar in the future.*g*

Yes, that would be the man in question. Thank you for putting my curiosity to rest *g*.

Aha! I wondered at the time if Garabaldi was getting the real story there, so I'm delighted to hear that I'd guessed there was more to it.

This being the case, I may be able to write the story I have in my head sooner rather than later, provided I'm fairly vague about life on Centauri Prime and find a beta reader to tell me what I'm doing wrong ...

Re: Ursa/Londo?

Well, between hobsonphile and my humble self, you'd have grateful Centauriphile betas all over you, I'm sure.

I will make absolutely certain that all spoilers past (or indeed, before) the current episode challenge are to be clearly marked. In fact, I shall go to do that now.

p.s. tentacle porn! whee!

That would be fantastic - I was on the verge of asking before, but I feel silly asking random people not to spoil me for B5 when it's been out for so long. I've only recently discovered it on DVD.

Now I feel as if I actually have to deliver *g*. Hmmmm. At least Born to the Purple is an early episode ...

Hey, not a problem! Always glad to meet the new recruits. ^____^

I sense we're going to have a fight on our hands regarding who gets to write the obvious Londo!Tentacle!Porn! entry for this one. *g*

I was going to say 'no need to argue, there are plenty of tentacles to go around' but the mental image was a bit much even for me *g*.

In all seriousness, I'm sure there will be many Londo stories generated by that particular week. Yay! Or we might end up with a tentacle porn Round Robin. Stranger things have happened.

Tentacle porn? Someone wants...

...tentacle porn? Must join this community.

DS9: There isn't a community for drabbles but there is one for discussion and fanfic alike, DS9-a-gogo.

DS9-a-gogo

Yes, I found that community through you and signed up immediately. *g*

If there were a DS9 drabble community, what would you name it? I've come up with titles like "At the Temple Gates" and "Dispatches from the Front", but those, I think, are too long for a user name. *g*

Now that could work...
