16th-May-2013 01:29 am - Star Trek Into Darkness Spoiler Thread!
allchildren: nyota uhura remains unconvinced (☄ª cry moar)
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

allchildren: kay eiffel's face meets the typewriter (☄ª hailing frequencies open)
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 and pseudo-FAQ before posting.

Comments, questions, sparkly gifs? Star Trek is back! [kazooooooooo]

ext_550384: (Default)
I have had the same background on my computer for ages, and I'm looking to change it. I have scoured the internets in search of wallpapers with awesome Star Trek ladies (TOS or AOS, preferably, but I'm not picky as to which one), but I've been unable to find any good ones. Does anyone have links to where I might find such a thing? I would be eternally grateful.
14th-Jun-2010 11:46 am - Question!
*raises hand in air, elementary-school-style, flails around a bit, bouncing*  Question!

If one were to write a story in which they personify/anthropomorphize the Enterprise and told the story from the ship's POV, would it apply to the rules of this community, considering ships are traditionally ascribed female identifiers and attributes?  And I'm not really talking about creating the Enterprise as a humanoid character, but literally giving the ship a consciousness in its current form (namely, that of a ship).

It was just a wacky idea I had the other day and I was curious.  I'm considering writing such a story and just wondered if I'd be able to post it here.

I run [livejournal.com profile] teamgaila and was wondering if, considering her popularity in this community and how the three most other popular women (Uhura, Gaila, and Number One) also have their own respective communities, there would be interest in a Team Winona sister community? So please just take a moment to vote, and thank you very much for your time and honesty! ♥

Does not!Gaila have a name? It's been a minute since I popped in the DVD and I don't see it in a simple google search. Is there a fanon name for her, if not a canon one?
1st-Dec-2009 02:28 pm - help?
There was an awesome [livejournal.com profile] where_no_woman member in the audience at the Trek panel I did Friday at ChicagoTARDIS and I never got her El Jay name. Help? Stand up and be counted, Oh Awesome Girlie! Cos you really were way nifty, and I feel like a MORON for not writing your journal down (especially when you then came said awesome things at the Chicks Dig Time Lords panel as well on Saturday).
9th-Oct-2009 09:55 am - Question about novel fic community
There is currently a prompt community dedicated to the Star Trek novels, over on dreamwidth -- Trek Novel Fest. However, as the name implies, it's a prompt/fest community with defined requests already.

I'd like to create a fic community for stories based on the Trek novels -- set in the shared reboot universe or in any of the individual books, trilogies, series, etc -- but I don't know how much interest there might be. Would folks here be interested in such a community? There's certainly a lot of interesting female characters in the books, and a lot of interesting things happen *to* the female characters from Trek in the bookverses.
15th-Sep-2009 08:27 pm - I bring a suggestion...
ext_435322: (another girl's paradise)
Hello folks, I've been reading some of your fics and I love the whole idea of this comm, though I haven't contributed or commented much (er, I will try and be better about that). Delurking to bring you my gf's suggestion: re-writing TOS episodes as alternate universe fics without all the sexism.

cut for spoilers )

Thoughts?

There's a lot to love in TOS... My gf and I have been excusing it with "yeah, it's the 60s" every time, but damn.

11th-Aug-2009 02:26 pm - Drabble fest indexed + a question
I've indexed the responses to our latest set of drabble prompts for your convenience. Come back and read if you haven't already done so, and don't forget to leave feedback. If you still wish to respond, feel free. I'll make a final pass at indexing one week from today. Go read and write

This question is mostly directed at mods, but I thought I'd post it here publicly in case it needs discussion. Sometimes people write responses to these challenges that are rated NC-17 for explicit sex or that contain content that would require a warning (i.e., noncon, graphic violence, etc.) Is it okay to post those responses in the comments of the challenge post with the appropriate rating and/or warning in the subject line? Or would it be better to post them elsewhere and comment with a link accompanied by the relevant rating/warning? I know I erred on the side of caution with mine and posted it in my journal instead, as did the other writers who wrote porn, but I think it would be good to have a clear rule to post in the challenge guidelines.
