I am sad (though not remotely surprised) that Kara lost to Buffy in the first round, but if Buffy doesn't trounce Spock I will be thoroughly disappointed in fandom. Seriously. I was surprised to see Aeryn lose to someone from Being Human. Very disappointing. I didn't know people even watched that show... ETA: Leslie Knope and Dexter Morgan are currently losing their respective races. PLEASE FIX THIS TERRIBLE INJUSTICE, FANDOM.

Eh, you know.  Because I can.  But first, a quick question for my flist, inspired by the song I am listening to right now: if I were to buy just one season of Bear McCreary's BSG soundtracks, which would you recommend? I only have one song right now. It is 'Kara Remembers' from Someone to Watch Over Me and I downloaded to help me write certain scenes in The Breath Between.

Community: set phasers to "love me" )

Parks and Recreation: i just like this show so much )

Chuck: spoilers for CAT Squad )

Farscape: most of the way through season 3 )

Also I have seen the new Game of Thrones preview and IT LOOKS SO BEYOND AMAZING.  That is all.

Oh yeah, and I have been rewatching The Education of Max Bickford.  I don't know what it is about this show (besides, you know, the Sackhoff element) that inspires me to rewatch it annually.  Someday I will write a big post about it.  But not this day.

I watched the Oscars too, of course.  I always do, even though they're not actually that interesting.  But this year I was just sad that my beloved True Grit got robbed.  I mean, I liked The King's Speech.  And I loved Colin Firth's acceptance speech.  That award was well deserved.  But I am sort of fundamentally apathetic about the British monarchy.  It's not like he wrote the speech, you know.   Yeah yeah, not the point, whatever.  I wasn't surprised, just a little disappointed.

So here's the thing.  I'm not really into criticizing women (with a few exceptions).  There's far too much of that in the world, and I don't like to add to it.  Last week, I was reading this thing about some female characters in sci-fi, and it reminded me of the flowchart thingy that got linked all over the place a couple months ago.  Long story short, while I certainly see the value in speaking critically about the way women are written (and hell, I do it all the time) I feel it's detrimental to dismiss those women.  So I got the idea to do this post.  And I was going to post it on More Joy Day, which is today (Thursday) but I forgot and have only just remembered.  It will most likely not be Thursday anymore by the time I finish all the coding, so just know that I did start the post with a few minutes left in the day!  

Anyway, I have been waiting for the opportune moment to post the "30 Days of Awesome Women" meme.  All in one day.  Or maybe three.  That moment may have been a couple of hours ago, but points for effort. 

Behind the cut, you will find the first ten categories and LOTS of pictures.  Fandoms include: Battlestar Galactica, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, X-Files, Veronica Mars, Doctor Who, Dexter, Firefly, Community, Angel, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, Chuck, Wonderfalls, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Farscape, ...and I think that's all of them.  There will be more fandoms in the later parts.

Also I cheated and listed multiple characters for just about every category, so there are far more than ten women behind the cut.

22 awesome women )

Okay, that's all for now.  I'll be back with 11-20 tomorrow.  Probably.  And by "tomorrow" I really mean "later today" because it's not Thursday anymore.

In the meantime, feel free to chime in with other awesome women!
