Title: An Easy Fit
Author: [profile] shadowkittykat_
Fandom: Harry
Pairing: Harry Potter/ Neville Longbottom
Spoilers: Significant through 5th, minor for 6th book. Reference to movie 4.
Disclaimer: I'm way too tall and way too young to be the glorious JKR.

I wrote this essay a while ago, meaning to post it eventually. Well, now I've finally got around to doing it.  I wrote this mostly because it seems, at least in this fandom, that while there are loads of pairings that are hot-looking or sensational, there aren't very many that are feasible as an actual, healthy relationship in any real sense. This is one of the few, the proud, the realistic.

(Even if I still luff Snarry non-con slave-bond fics.)

Title: "Give a Reason for Life" - A Lina/Gourry manifesto
Pairing Lina Inverse/Gourry Gabriev
Fandom: Slayers
Spoilers: The entire Slayers franchise to date. There's quite a bit of it! The big spoilers for those not familiar with the parts of the series not released in English are novels 7-15 and Slayers: Knight of Aqualord.
Note: As done by previous posters, parts of this manifesto will be linked back to my LiveJournal due to the breaking of the character-limit count for posts and because this manifesto went way over 5,000 words and I couldn't get it trimmed down.

Part I. Introduction to Slayers, the manifesto and acknowledgements )

From here, the manifesto is broken up into parts. Each part of the manifesto has a clickable index at the beginning so it's easier to read if you need to take a break and go beat up critters in WoW.

Part II: Character Introduction and Story Summary
Introduction of the characters and how their relationship has grown throughout the novels and manga.

Part III: Pairing Analysis and Fandom Resources
Discussing the arguments against Lina/Gourry, why the pairing works so well and fandom resources.

To keep everything organized, I ask people to post their comments to this post, please. Comments to the supporting posts are disabled. As always, flames are not allowed!

Pairing: Ponyboy Curtis x Cherry Valance
Spoilers: Novel/movie spoilers.
Notes: I had hopes that this essay would be better than this... Hopefully it still gets the job done. It's not, like, due today or anything... *shifty eyes* I felt the need to write an essay for this pairing because the fandom kinda sucks as far as not-pure-canon pairings go, and this one is SO in-character. That and people seem to think Dallas and Cherry would WORK BETTER. *mind boggles*

Title: Leaf and Flower: Legolas & Eowyn
Author: [livejournal.com profile] ningloreth
Fandom: The Lord of the Rings
Pairing: Legolas/Eowyn
Spoilers: Some spoilers for the book and the film trilogy; slight spoilers for the fan fiction discussed.
Author’s Notes: This essay is slightly longer than 5000 words—but, then, the book is slightly longer than the average book, and the films are slightly longer than the average film… It also contains a lot of pictures, so it may take a while to open.

It's also a bit early ;-)

PS: The links should now be fixed!


Just in case there is anyone in the world who has never heard of Legolas… He is an elf, and Eowyn is a human woman, and both characters appear in JRR Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings and in Peter Jackson’s film adaptations.

Broadly speaking, there are two types of LOTR fan fiction: bookverse and movieverse—and, for some reason, movieverse stories are often considered inferior to bookverse.

I would classify my own Legolas/Eowyn stories as movieverse (though set, for the most part, after the films), with additional material from the books (including The Hobbit and some of the other writings), and influenced by other writers’ fan fiction.

My discussion of Legolas and Eowyn here also mixes these sources.

Well, here I go on my attempt to write an essay for my OTP. And this might not be a very well-written essay, but I tried my best. This will just be a simple essay, and straight-to-the-point I hope. Oh and Please. No ship wars. I would love H/L to be canon, even if it’s 5% chance out of a 100, but it’s canon possibilities isn’t the reason I ship it. Thank you.

and it’s a leap of faith… )

'Ship: Faramir x Eowyn
Fandom: Lord of the Rings
Spoilers: Entire trilogy, books and movie.
Thanks: To J.R.R. Tolkien for writing books that have changed my life.
Notes: This is un-beta-ed because I have no friends who would put up with reading this much about LotR. So, any inconsistencies/weird stuff/repeats are all mine. Sorry if it’s confusing.

*Note: This is based exclusively on the books, as they get about ten seconds of screen time in the movies. Also because the books are the real canon, after all, and I will admit to being a bit of a Canon Nazi. 
