Fannish Five

1. What was the last tv episode you watched?

To tell you the truth, I can't remember. It's been a long time since I've had the time or the desire to sit down and watch TV. I do, however, remember the last thing I watched on DVD: B5's The War Prayer, for fic-like purposes. *g*

2. What was the last fannish conversation you had and who was it with?

I daily try to explain the intricacies of theatrical_muse to my brother soulonds9 (whom I'm trying to convince to play Ezri Dax). *g* I've also mentioned to a co-worker of mine that I think Vir is of the cute. *g* And I had a conversation with my RL friend Jason some weeks ago in which I attempted to explain the awesomeness that is Londo/G'Kar and Londo & Vir. (He has not seen the show and he doesn't own a TV. I think I will one day lug my TV and DVD player over there and make him watch the pertinent episodes. *g*)

3. What was the last fannish list discussion you participated in?

My fannish meta is confined to LJ and Jumpy at this point, but months ago, before I discovered selenak, I had a short conversation with someone on the B5 Yahoo group about Londo and his complexities.

4. What was the last fannish lj entry you read/commented on?

theatrical_muse, man. It is my crack. There was also the matter of leyenn's B5 Ficathon, the announcement of which sparked a great deal of highly amusing speculation as to just how many characters we could get Londo and G'Kar into bed with. *g* Besides each other, I mean. *g* Which reminds me: What about Londo/G'Kar/Mariel?

Also, there was a mention of the possibility of both Vorlon/Shadow and Sheridan/Lorien, both of which caused much merriment on my end. *g*

5. What was the last fanfic you read?

That would be selenak's latest entry in her Five Things Which Never Happened Between Kira and Dukat, which can be found here.

Which reminds me: What about Londo/G'Kar/Mariel?

Duh! Except for the old problem: Londo probably would, Mariel so would, but G'Kar wouldn't because of the "witness" issue.*g*

And Vorlon/Shadow was my idea, months ago. Who suggested it?

BTW, has leyenn already assorted challenges to someone? Because I haven't heard anything back yet.

I've come to think that the easiet way to Londo/G'Kar/Insert Character Three Here is to have Character Three find out about the Londo/G'Kar first. Because if, for example, Mariel already knew I can certainly see G'Kar sighing and making the best of it ... right up until the part where she tried to blackmail them.

ooh, good point!

And it would be so Mariel to a) do it, and b) make a recording for blackmail purposes.

Re: ooh, good point!

And it would be so Mariel to a) do it, and b) make a recording for blackmail purposes.

And I can see Londo and G'Kar being silly enough to fall for it, too.

('I'm not sure this is a good idea ...'

'What, you're frightening of Mariel? She's never tried to kill you.'

'Don't be ridiculous, Mollari.'

'So you do think it's a good idea?'

'Oh, why not. I might as well get somet benefit out of the humiliation of somebody else knowing I've fallen low enough to go to bed with you.')

And no, I will not write it yet, for obvious reasons *g*.

*wails*

But we wants it! We needs it!

I think I should probably watch Season Five before writing fic that appears to be set then *g*. And I also have to work out how they get themselves out of the mess afterwards ...

While bickering about whose fault it was the entire time, no doubt. Meanwhile, Mariel has the scoop of the century for the crowning chapter of her memoirs...

And speaking of the publishing industry, you can write that "Londo and G'Kar versus the tabloid journalist" season 1 fic now.

*mutter* Butyouhavethevideotapesnow *mutter*

Well, I know where they are *g*. I want to move house so I can sign up to rent them with my new address rather than the old one. Also, Yasmin currently has my Season Three DVDs and I haven't actually finished watching those. But soon *g*.

Of course *g*.

Those historians of the future will probably use this think that it's either her invention or an interpolation by someone who was trying to spice the whole thing up. (Not that Mariel's memoirs would really need spice ...) Unless, of course, the evidence did survive.

Yes, indeed. So many plot bunnies, so little time ...

Oooh - brainwave! Luc Deradi, the boy Londo tells the story to in In the Beginning, decides to become a historian and during Vir's reign gets the task of writing Londo's biography, to his great joy. Right until he is confronted with the tricky parts. No, not Mr. Morden's "My Deals, My Ambassadors", or even the furious "Mollari: War Criminal" by a Narn historian. It's Mariel's memoirs who cause the problem. Can it really be true? Or did she make things up? Taking all his courage, he decides to ask for an audience with the Emperor and question Vir. Vir, however, has his own reasons for not wanting to talk about Mariel...

You should definitely write this. I can just see Emperor Cotto trying not to fall back on blushing and squirming when the more ... interesting ... passages are mentioned.
This is a few days late, but hopefully you'll see it. The last day for submissions is the 19th, and then over the weekend Leyenn and I will pair everybody up. You should get your challenges then. :)

Good to know, and thank you.

Am looking forward to the result.
