Here's a thread just for Star Trek Into Darkness SPOILERS. As in, for people who have already seen the film and wish to discuss its woman-related content. If you just wanna say hi to the community and dust yourself off without getting spoiled, hop one entry back
. Here: go nuts*.
*within reason because, not having seen the movie myself, I'm not reading comments for a few days and am thus asking you to behave yourselves!**
**don't make me
turn this spaceship around
Hello, dear womanfans! (That's fans of woman. Women. I'm tired.) It has come to my attention that this movie I never believed I'd live to see has finally materialized, and with it (I'M GUESSING) some chicks in space!
I haven't seen the movie yet, and I will not be able to for a couple of days yet. However, I know many of you will have, and so I will be making a post for you to discuss if you like. This post and its comments, however, should remain spoilerfree.
Of course, you may wish to make your own posts regarding the movie, be they discussion, fic, or icons. All awesome! But please do keep your STID spoilers blacked out or behind cuts, and take a moment to refresh yourself on the community guidelines in our profile
Comments, questions, sparkly gifs? Star Trek is back! [kazooooooooo]
I am overjoyed to announce that Where No Woman @ Dreamwidth is now fully operational -- all past entries are imported, guidelines are up, membership and posting are open, and the profile is all updated and everything. (Erm, the layout's a little janky still, but I'm working on that.)
If you missed it, now's a great time to browse the still-going party post
, which has yielded several fantastic ficlets and gorgeous icons and made a few new friends.
Please, if you could only subscribe before, feel free to join now and make this as great a community as it can be! Post your recs or fic or discussion or movie spec! And of course, tell your friends. :D
If you'd like to get in touch with the mod team to report an issue, tell us your cool ideas, or ask a question, look no further! Comment here and all three mods will get it! We'll be with you shortly. :)
OH HEY, I GUESS I SHOULD OPEN THE CURTAINS AND LET THE LIGHT IN HERE.
Import and open posting will begin shortly (what's this? yes!
a truly active branch of Where No Woman, home to all of Star Trek's ladies and femmesque androgynes, right here!). Until then, this post is here for your general party/drabbles/hello/introduction/tire-
kicking purposes. Make yourselves at home!
P.S. If anybody is competent enough with CSS to vanquish the two white lines intruding on the top and bottom of our layout, please let me know.

Have you checked out our wish list post
to see if you can grant any wishes? If not, there's still time. Although the fest was officially scheduled to close on January 1, I understand that many of us were busy working on stories with more stringent deadlines, so I'm going to hold off on making the master list until January 8. I've got a story in the works, and I hope a few more of us can make something.
Also relevant to our interests: rarewomen
is hosting an exchange this spring. Both large and small (Yuletide-size) fandoms will be eligible. Read the schedule and nomination info
, then discuss which AOS women should be considered rare.
There's also a TOS discussion thread, which you can find with a little poking around. I haven't seen a thread for other ST franchises, but they are eligible for inclusion.
: Did you know that DS9 is eligible for Yuletide this year? It is! Nominations close today (Monday) at 9:30 PM EST, so if you are interested in writing or receiving DS9 fic and have an AO3 account, now is the time to hop over to the nominations form
and add some characters. Right now the only two female characters that are definitely nominated
. If several of you are interested in using your nominations most effectively, feel free to strategize in the comments of this post.Thing two: The episode guide challenge
chugs onward! I know we had a few weeks of radio silence there, and hey, I get it -- I've been too busy myself to really take notice. But the response to cosmic_llin
's lovely Pulaski guide shows there's definitely still interest, so in case you missed your posting dates and have been feeling guilty or stressed out about it, take a load off. Your guides are welcome whenever they're ready, and if you think you overcommitted to something you can't finish, don't worry! Just let me know so I can let someone else claim it. If Friday isn't a great posting day, choose another. I understand about anxiety and deadlines, believe me.
You can double check your claimed dates and characters here

Willing to write some femslash or queergen and have it postable within the week. Any takers? (Please, please let there be takers; Comment with an email & a letter & I'll send out more information about the sign up to you).
