leyenn has started a B5 Ficathon...

... and she needs us assorted Centauriphiles and nutballs to play too. ;)

Pimppimppimp

(andrastewhite: You can request not to be spoiled beyond And the Rock Cried Out, No Hiding Place.)

Here was my entry for those who might be curious:




REQUESTS:

List Pairings: Argh! *wracks brain to narrow it down* Erm, okay. I'll go with the dares. As in, I dare any participant to write Londo/Vir without squicking me (as, I believe, selenak said once, there's an exception to every rule) and G'Kar/Vir (I howled with laughter when I first read that choice, but after ruminating over the idea over dinner, I want to see if G'Kar/Vir is even possible).

So, to summarize:

Pairing #1: Londo/Vir
Pairing #2: G'Kar/Vir

Wildcard: Shadow/Vorlon pr0n!

Characters: Londo, G'Kar

Squick for Vir Pairings: No raping or otherwise physically injuring Vir during the sex act, though emotional angst is okay. Humor, if you can fit it in, gets bonus points.

Squick for Shadow/Vorlon: None.

Spoilers: Bring it on, baby!

WILLING TO WRITE:

Pairings (in order of comfort): Vir/anyone except Londo, Londo/anyone except Vir, G'Kar/anyone, Garibaldi/Lochley (maybe)

Characters (in order of comfort): Vir, Londo, G'Kar

Squick: Don't feel quite ready to write NC-17.

RUSTY SPOON:

Pairings: Susan/Marcus & Sheridan/Delenn (Ragh! Popularity! *melts like the Wicked Witch of the West*), Susan/Talia (can read but can't write- please don't hate me! ;)), Zack/anyone
Characters: Zack, Marcus, Talia *ducks to avoid wrath of pervy telepath fancier*, Lyta, Bester (he skeers me)



Yes, you did read that right. I requested Londo/Vir, G'Kar/Vir and Shadow/Vorlon all out of my own sick curiosity.

Now, off to work on my current writing assignments...

Talia *ducks to avoid wrath of pervy telepath fancier*

*laughing so hard*

My entry says, almost verbatim, the same thing. Which is good, you know, for us. There are more than enough Talia gals in the world, and those of us who'd rather write Garibaldi/Londo/Lennier threesomes need some solidarity, yo. *g*
and those of us who'd rather write Garibaldi/Londo/Lennier threesomes need some solidarity, yo.

Garibaldi/Londo/Lennier? Great Maker, woman! *lol* How do you make that work?

But now that you mention threesomes, we do have the absolutely canonical Londo/Mariel/Daggair. *meep* And since Londo/Timov and Londo/G'Kar are both OTP's for me, I'd be curious to see if anyone could manage Londo/G'Kar/Timov while keeping everyone in character, though of course that would be alternate universe material (not to mention the very big hurdle of convincing Timov *g*). I am also horrified/sickly amused by the prospect of Londo/G'Kar/Vir.
Garibaldi/Londo/Lennier? Great Maker, woman! *lol* How do you make that work?

Well, it was a shot in the dark, but now...think about it! First, we've got canonical Garibaldi/Lennier/motorcycle. Meanwhile, I'm all about Lennier's canonical fascination for both Londo *and* Garibaldi, for different reasons. Garibaldi/Londo's easy, if it's in S1, early S2 or somewhere in S5 before Garibaldi goes to Mars. So all you gotta do is get Londo flat-ass drunk, have Garibaldi looking on with a combination of envy and fascination, have Garibaldi bite back a temperance lecture and instead gossip with Lennier about how intriguing Londo is, Lennier agrees, both Garibaldi and Lennier envy Londo's ability to live the good life, badda-bing, badda-motorcycle, they wake up in a heap in medlab. *g*

As for Londo/G'Kar/Timov, cripes! I'm not sure G'Kar would *ever* allow himself to fall prey to that kind of power play, he'd be SO outnumbered. And plus, with Timov there, there'd be a WITNESS to G'Kar/Londo, and I'm not sure EITHER of them would be comfortable with that...or with admitting it in the morning.

On the other hand, Londo/G'Kar/Vir has its appeal.....*g*

*sodaspraymonitor*

But you know, in all seriousness... I can actually see a first season romp between Londo and Garibaldi. It's a long shot, but...

I'm not sure G'Kar would *ever* allow himself to fall prey to that kind of power play, he'd be SO outnumbered.

Ah, see, you're wrong here. If anything, it would be Londo who would be outnumbered. Timov's relationship with Londo consists of an endless string of bitingly honest criticisms and astute observations, coupled with, in my opinion, an underlying strain of affection. And don't you think that sounds much like the relationship Londo has (in the fifth season) with a certain other character we know?

No, in a Londo/G'Kar/Timov match-up, it would be the insight and snark of G'Kar and Timov against Londo's own (admittedly sturdy) wit. And I think Londo is perverse enough to enjoy the challenge of those long odds. *g* Londo hates sycophancy. Being naturally adversarial and competitive, he surrounds himself with people with whom he can fight. Even Vir, mild-mannered and sweet though he may be, falls under this umbrella.

However, you do have a good point with your second statement:

And plus, with Timov there, there'd be a WITNESS to G'Kar/Londo, and I'm not sure EITHER of them would be comfortable with that...or with admitting it in the morning.


True enough.

On the other hand, Londo/G'Kar/Vir has its appeal.....*g*

Though that also has the aforementioned witness problem. Not to mention that Londo/Vir strikes me as incestuous as a rule.

No, I completely agree -- but, while Londo seeks out a good snarky sparring, G'Kar (at least, outwardly) finds it exhausting. (The question of whether, secretly, G'Kar enjoys these battles of wit remains open, but, of course, we can certainly guess...)

So if we're talking about trying to write Londo/G'Kar/Timov -- Londo would indeed be totally doubleteamed and pummeled from all sides, but, underneath it all, I'll bet he'd like it.

G'Kar, I think, would find the idea of being vulnerable around not one but TWO Centauri not even worth considering. Whether he'd drop his guard around Londo alone is still an open question, which makes writing/reading G'Kar/Londo so fascinating -- and so hard to do well. Anyway, that's what I meant when I said he'd be outnumbered; I just suspect it's not a situation he'd ever allow himself to be in -- the vulnerability would be too profound, and too dangerous. And G'Kar doesn't put himself in situations where he's emotionally vulnerable.

Physically vulnerable, on the other hand...

Okay, gotcha. Though at this point, I feel compelled to point out that canon suggests that G'Kar has consorted with Centauri of the fairer sex, which makes me wonder if G'Kar sees Centauri women in quite the same way as he sees Centauri men.
Meanwhile -- and I knew this would happen though I was hoping it wouldn't happen for another week -- I think I've inadvertantly dropped my guard and let you in on a, erm, secret.

*vbeg*

If you did, I in my dense-ness completely missed it. ;) So what was the secret? Because now that you've mentioned you have one, I want to knooooow! *whine*
Oh. Heh! Um. Pleased to meet you.

I was hoping to wait till selenak got back, doncha know, before I unveiled, but, you know, whatever. *g*

Muahaha!

So you are responsible!

*foreheadslap*

I might've known!

Re: Muahaha!

I take full responsibility, and throw myself upon the mercy of the court: "your honor, my muse could not be denied!"

*eg*
I can actually see a first season romp between Londo and Garibaldi. It's a long shot, but...

It's canon that Londo thinks that Garabaldi is 'cute in an annoying sort of way.' Of course, it's also canon that Garabaldi threatened to break Londo's arm if he tried anything *g*.

Though that also has the aforementioned witness problem.

See, I've long through that Vir is the person most likely to go and check if all that noise coming from Londo's quarters means that he and G'Kar have decided to kill each other again, and find out the hard way that they're getting along really well.

Of course, I think he'd be likely to react to this by backing out of the room with his eyes shut, apologising all the way, then going to look for some forks to stab out his own eyes with. I don't think he'd decide to join in *g*.

Part of the problem with Londo/Vir is that canon suggests they'd be squicked by it. I don't think either of them wants to think too hard about the other's sex life.

I am, however, strangely intrigued by the prospect of Londo/G'Kar/Timov, yet doubt that there's enough brivari in the universe to make it work ...

Ah, but the question remains: would he? You can make a case for Garibaldi being in a state of sexual frustration during the first season, what with Lise issues, Talia issues, and, if you're slashily inclined, Sinclair issues. And you yourself proved that "I'm bored, let's have sex" is a Londo idea to have.*g*

Well, poor Vir already knows more about Londo's sex life than he wants to, what with ordering underwear for Adira and being informed that Timov bites. (Btw, that's a story I've been meaning to write. As you know from my tale of their marriage, I don't think they had sex back when they were married, but they did get around to it eventually.) But I agree that they'd be squicked by the idea, which is why I can't wrap my mind around (canonical) Londo/Vir.

I am, however, strangely intrigued by the prospect of Londo/G'Kar/Timov, yet doubt that there's enough brivari in the universe to make it work ...

Ironically, the party I can see having the least problem with it is Londo. G'Kar would have no problem with the concept of having sex with a wife of Londo's but very much with any witness to having sex, drunken or not, with Londo. And Timov would slap both of them for the suggestion. Although... I think I might be able to pull it off in one particular way if someone challenged me to do it. And they wouldn't even be drunk.

Fandom is an evil place.

I imagine that Londo would also find Garabaldi's inability to get laid rather bewildering. Possibly to the point of offering to give him pointers ... I can't believe you're talking me into Londo/Garabaldi.

Please write on *g*.

Indeed - although I think I maybe thought of a way, if pushed to drastic measures by ficathon requirements.

I'm still trying to come up with a way to achieve G'Kar/Vir that doesn't begin 'once upon a time, some aliens with an interest in mind controll and interspecies sex came to Babylon 5 ...'

G'Kar would have no problem with the concept of having sex with a wife of Londo's but very much with any witness to having sex, drunken or not, with Londo.

Yes - G'Kar has learned the value of discretion via his affair with Mariel (and maybe other Centauri women, for all we know.)

And Timov would slap both of them for the suggestion.

Well, you know, G'Kar can be quite charming when he ... no, you're right. He might last a whole thirty seconds of conversation before she hit him, though.

Although... I think I might be able to pull it off in one particular way if someone challenged me to do it. And they wouldn't even be drunk.

Fandom is an evil place.


You're telling me. Less than six months ago, I didn't even know how to pronounce G'Kar, and now I'm contemplating ways of getting him into bed with half the cast.

Sounds in character to me. He does offer to give G'Kar pointers for the same problem in Rising Star, after all.*g* And in season 1, Londo has been known to cheer up Garibaldi with good advice as well.

... I can't believe you're talking me into Londo/Garibaldi.

Says the woman who wants to talk me into Londo/G'Kar/Timov. Pfff.

G'Kar/Londo/Timov:
Please write on *g*.

I'm waiting as to whether or not I will get such an assignement by leyenn, since there is only one such idea. But I'm warning you, it's going to be set post-show and will contain spoilers for the novels, and might be accused of cheating.*g*

Well, you know, G'Kar can be quite charming when he ... no, you're right. He might last a whole thirty seconds of conversation before she hit him, though.

I gave Timov and G'Kar a brief and utterly un-slap-containing meeting in my story about her marriage to Londo.

Less than six months ago, I didn't even know how to pronounce G'Kar, and now I'm contemplating ways of getting him into bed with half the cast.

Well, he (and the Centauri) missed out of the fannish action long enough (i.e. for a decade) which is most unfair considering they get canonically laid more often than the humans.
If leyenn does not challenge you to do Londo/G'Kar/Timov, then I personally challenge you. ;)
Sounds in character to me. He does offer to give G'Kar pointers for the same problem in Rising Star, after all.*g*

Well, a similar problem - I don't think he belives G'Kar has any trouble getting the girls as far as the bed *g*.

And in season 1, Londo has been known to cheer up Garibaldi with good advice as well.

I know. The trouble is, I can hear the conversation now.

What goes around, comes around. Especially in fandom.

I think cheating is allowed with a threesome like that *g*.

I gave Timov and G'Kar a brief and utterly un-slap-containing meeting in my story about her marriage to Londo.

Oh, I'm sure they could talk about plenty of things without any violence resulting - just not in a converstaion that contained any variation on 'your husband and I are interested in having sex with you.'

Well, he (and the Centauri) missed out of the fannish action long enough (i.e. for a decade) which is most unfair considering they get canonically laid more often than the humans.

Perhaps that was the rationale - although it doesn't get people out of writing Vir a romantic life. Still, we seem to be doing our best to redress the balance now - and I suspect the ficathon may help produce more *g*.

True. His comments in Rising Star aim at G'Kar's stamina, technique, and, er, tendency to be premature.*g* Great Maker, those scenes are wicked.

The trouble is, I can hear the conversation now.

Well then, why can't we read it?
True. His comments in Rising Star aim at G'Kar's stamina, technique, and, er, tendency to be premature.*g* Great Maker, those scenes are wicked.

And lead neatly not only to Londo/G'Kar with G'Kar determined to prove the slur unfounded, but to another reason for Londo/G'Kar/Mariel, because I can see both of them declaring that they need an independent judge to decide the question of technique.

Well then, why can't we read it?

Londo/Garabaldi. *shakes head* Have I really fallen so far in such a short time? Less than three months since I first posted my first B5 story?

(Seriously, though, I'm waiting for my ficathon assignment. Who knows what people may have asked for ...?)

G: Although that shouldn't even be a question. Why do you think Mariel started our affair to begin with? Obviously, she was thoroughly bored with your...attentions.

L: My dear G'Kar, surely it hasn't escaped your attention she didn't give you another look once you lost your position? Obviously, she was prepared to endure a lot, but not clumsiness from a powerless man. Now that I think of it, this probably explains your complete lack of a social life these past few years in general.

G: That's it. I'm inviting her to join us immediately. Perhaps your inevitable humiliation will at least liberate me from your ongoing prattle for a day or two.

Londo/Garibaldi. *shakes head* Have I really fallen so far in such a short time?

Hey, take comfort in the fact there are worse cases. After all, your pal Y. bewilderingly wants to write G'Kar/Sheridan. (Sheridan = so very unslashable.)
Perhaps your inevitable humiliation will at least liberate me from your ongoing prattle for a day or two.

Hee. And I bet Mariel could come up with a way to shut both of them up, too, at least temporarily ...

After all, your pal Y. bewilderingly wants to write G'Kar/Sheridan. (Sheridan = so very unslashable.)

It's certainly not a pairing I could wrap my head around, but I'll gladly read it when she's done. I must encourage her to use her knowledge of post-colonialism to write about Narns, in combination with humans or not *g*.

What worries me ...

... is that I'm more weirded out by G'Kar/Na'Toth than G'Kar/Vir. At least Vir is (one of) the right species - if G'Kar was interested in Narn girls, presumably he'd be sleeping with them in canon. And yet, I'm strangely intrigued by the possibility ...

I fear this is too tempting to resist, although I really must write my Remix Challenge story first. Now I just need to choose requests and come up with stuff I could write. So many possibilities!

And I think I maybe know a way to write Londo/Vir that at least wouldn't be squicky for the reasons Londo/Vir would usually be squicky.

You may shoot me now.

*is intrigued*

This wouldn't be a continuation of your gender swap, would it? *g*
*is intrigued*

You see, this is why I hate fandom. I say 'I have this insane idea, please kill me' and people express interest. Of course, that's also why I love fandom *g*.

This wouldn't be a continuation of your gender swap, would it? *g*

Well, there is that. Apparently the Londo of that universe thinks it's terribly sad that Vira has been brought up in such a way that she's panic-stricken at the whole idea of sex, and would like to change her mind on the subject...

... but I also think it might be possible to write Londo/Vir in something closer to canon, although I can't be sure until I've seen all the episodes.

(Which should happen sooner rather than later, I hope. I've found somewhere I can rent them on video!)
Oi. What part of 'in sekrit' is unclear? ;) We can't have everyone doing this or people will start matching themselves up and I'll be out of a job!

Hmm, perhaps I will not spank you with tentacles this time... *giggles evilly*
Oi. What part of 'in sekrit' is unclear? ;)

Whoops, sorry. ;) I have attention deficit and my eyes completely scanned over that part. ;)

Is it normal to go all sparkley and happy after reading this, & want to see this scene? *laughing delightedly*

Good point about G'Kar not fancying Narn women. He seems to go for every other species in the galaxy (particularly Centauri) but never his own. I wonder why?
