HEY! Welcome! Summer is my name and I am a spiffy fan of nerdy things, a massage therapist, and Casino worker on the East coast USA. This blog will have lots of liberal, feminist, social justice stuff on it with lots more cartoons and comic book fandom. Be on the lookout for Saga, Nightwing, Hawkeye, Superman/Batman, and random Avengers. Also a smattering of Anime and boys love.And Jeremy Renner. And Muppets. And Whatever the hell else. The ask box is open, hit me up or follow me on twitter.
Call this a gift from the genre TV gods. Given her work on “Xena: Warrior Princess,” there are many out there who probably already consider Lucy Lawless to be a hero in some right. Now, she can…

When it comes to showrunners interacting with fandom slash ships, we’ve heard this song a million times before.
I found this to be a very interesting and well-thought out article. This particular bit was a highlight…
Stargate: Atlantis enjoyed decent ratings and a stolidly middle-aged fanbase that had supported the franchise for over a decade. It also had a major cult following within slash fandom because of the popularity of the slash pairing of John Shepard and Rodney McKay, a.k.a. McShep. McShep fans helped give the series a longer life and solid DVD sales into its fifth season. But unexpectedly, the show was canceled, not because ratings were poor, but because producers wanted to “broaden” the franchise’s “core fanbase.”
In other words, since the fanbase was too middle-aged, too female, and too prone to writing slashfic, the whole show had to go. The fanbase was so upset at SGA’s cancellation that Stargate: Universe, intended to be its younger, hotter sibling, crashed and burned in its first season. The franchise hasn’t been back on the air since.
A really good article about slash shipping.
