After a three-week hiatus for Femslash 4 Fans on Blogtalkradio.com, due to illness and the holiday, the show returns this Thursday, December 3rd, for a LIVE show from 10 - 10:45 PM EST. And, for obvious reasons, the subject matter will be relevant for everyone reading this:http://www.blogtalkradio.com/allaine/2009/12/04/femslash-archives--first-of-a-two-part-series-on-fFemslash Archives - First of a Two-Part Series on Femslash Fic Websites and Collections Obviously fan fiction can't live without writers, but the people who help spread fanfic to the greatest number of people possible are almost as important. Thousands of authors host their own works at websites, Facebook pages, and Livejournals, but nothing makes life easier for the well-rounded readers, the ones willing to take the plunge into all kinds of new fandoms in the pursuit of good writing, than the people who are willing to make the extraordinary time commitment of creating websites that become the homes for hundreds, even thousands of stories, from dozens of fandoms. In this two-part series, we'll talk to several of these people, all of whom specialize in femslash fanfic. I'll speak to two in Part One - ralst, creator of the "Passion and Perfection" website and its similarly-named Livejournal community passion_perfect, and ariestess, one of two authors who create the Femslash Advent Calendars and maintain the collections "Frisked and Conquered" and "Mmm Doctor" at the Shatterstorm Productions website. (The second part will air in January.)
For the record, Ralst will not be able to attend in person, due to the fact that she lives an ocean and several time zones away. She has received questions from me via email; her answers will be read over the air by Ariestess' partner in crime, shatterpath
, who also assisted me in this regard for my second Kim Possible show. This format has been used in the past for shows including Devil Wears Prada, Los Hombres de Paco, and Nikki & Nora II. And generally the answers go out over the air as smoothly as if the author was on the air themselves.
All previous shows can be downloaded from the main page at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/allaine
, including my previous talk with Ariestess during the segment on CSI: Miami. Fans are encouraged to call in with questions of their own for her.
Remember, December 3rd from 10-10:45 PM EST. If you can't listen live, you can download it starting the following morning.
