GND175 - Big Damn Heroines by Pika-la-Cynique GND175 - Big Damn Heroines by Pika-la-Cynique
In which there are many Joss Whedon characters, the tar is beaten out of the bad guys without any need of calling the boys for help, Star Wars and Star Trek characters get along just fine, and, in a slight spoiler for anyone who has yet to see Firefly and Serenity, River Tam Beats Up Everyone.
(which is heavily inspired by/a hommage to/a rip-off of this [link] strip of XKCD.)

And 170 pages later, Sarah STILL hasn't twigged about her rock star crush having something in common with her stalker. Although to be fair, neither has Chris and the plot chose to interrupt Liz....


Also, this one is dedicated with much love to my BFF, whom I see far too little these days, who was the one to make me sit down and watch the entirety of Firefly and who in fact bears an uncanny likeness to Summer Glau.

Um, Dead Bowie, I don’t think you reeeeeeeeaaaaally want Sarah to focus on being held hostage. Just cause she let Erik kidnap her that one time doesn’t mean she can’t kick your ass. She’s beaten the Witch King, the Goblin King and who-knows-what-else. Do you really think you’ve got a chance?

I think I can imagine how Bones would look in your style... The minute I heard/read "dilithium crystals" and his name I flipped and started laughing madly. He's a newly discovered favorite of mine.

That said, I do love the female focus here. I am woefully unfamiliar with River in particular, I may check out this Firefly.

PLUS this was a reminder that it has been FAR TOO LONG since I've re-watch Dr. Horrible. I'll have to get on that soonish.

MIND. BLOWN. Did I request that River be put in when you made your last Firefly reference, which was about an hour ago?! Yes I did! Did you read my mind MONTHS ago? Yes! CrAAAAzy! And it was put in even more perfectly than I expected!
Sorry for freaking out, this is literally just the best thing that's ever happened to me... all my favorite things in one place! AND I caught the Seventh Doctor reference too!

All the Mutant Enemy cameos in this series are just so wonderful! I think the only two big Whedon tales that are missing would be Dollhouse and Cabin in the Woods. It would be so cool if they made a guest appearance sometime! (No pressure, obvs. But GOSH I would have a lot of fun watching any of those characters interact in this 'verse.

Is it bad that every time we see Leia I'm just /waiting/ for Luke or Han (or both) to show up at the apartment?

Maybe a lil'bit. I mean, I get that you're all like "this is a fun 'verse to add to the crossover and I WANT ALL MY FAVOURITES TO SHOW UP" and that's cool, but I guess I am a wee bit disappoint that for you the party don't start 'til the man-meat walks in? Leia has her own intrinsic badassitude, and my fancomic does aim to focus on the female characters. True, I give the male counterparts to Chris and Sarah plenty of panel time and character development, and the romcom/fanservice side of things is pretty strong, so could be I don't practice what I preach so good all the time. But, not meaning to jump down your throat, the general guideline is that the man-pain and the Hot Dudes Show is supposed to happen over in 'Roommates' more than in 'Girls Next Door', eh.

Before we start, I have to say I just noticed the logo on Leia's shirt. Serious fancandy, there.

Nah, it's not that the party doesn't start, it's just watching Spaceballs and remembering the scene where the Princess Parody basically trumped Han Skywalker (I don't remember the names, DUN JUDG MEH!). Considering Leia seems to have the most intimidating/dominating presence of the galactic trio, I thought it'd be rather humorous for Luke and Han to be in the background, quietly sipping blue milkshakes and accepting the fact that their sister/girlfriend will always shine the brightest.

Or, you know, trying to hide the fact that they lost Luke's robo hand and Vader's trying to call them. *Shrug* You're the artist.

Oh, God. Vader... in the building. I think I would cry. Cry of happiness, mind, but cry all the same. Maybe another of Toby's birthdays and he wants a lightsabre or something? I feel like Jareth would enjoy granting that wish...

There is also the video on youtube called River Tam beats up Everyone: The real action movie. I tried to explain this to my daughter, "You don't understand! She killed them! Reavers! With THEIR weapons." She said, "Whats a Reaver?" Jaw fell open. She won't watch Star Wars with me either. I think I went wrong somewhere... And no matter how many times I say Neil Gaiman, Peter Jackson, Joss Whedon or The Flanneled one (all bow to George Lucas) she looks at me and asks "Why do you keep calling yourself a Whedonite, is that an old cereal like the Count Chocula guy you keep talking about?" Seriously wrong, somewhere.. it's her dads fault. He won't watch Serenity or Firefly either... SO WRONG. Viva La Browncoats, Flans forever!
