This is the last episode of 2013 and we had a giant podcast party with the Space Pirate Queen, Gizzy B, Pilbeam, Fortune Cookie, plus Radiophile and Scarlettburn in the mix! Listen to six awesome Lady Geeks share their highlights in fandom — ranging from giant robots to small hobbits — and what we are looking forward to in 2014. Fanfic Theatre: Frozen.
So for those of you who have seen The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug you are probably enchanted by its visuals, its epic storytelling, and the themes of small creatures having the ability to change the world.
If you’re like me you are most enchanted by the new amazing pairing that is She-Elf badass Tauriel and cutie pie Dwarf Kili.
The second this pairing was hinted at during the movie, I practically lost it. So many fangirl feelings came up that I have not experienced since the days of Lord of the Rings. There’s something about this franchise. I am a fan of many different stories, but I always revert back to my most cavewoman teenage fangirl instincts with anything Tolkien related.
During the movie the Space Pirate Queen and I were clapping in girly delight every single time this pair was hinted at. We kept saying out loud, “So many feelings! All the feelings! YES.” There’s just something so perfect about it. Even though Tauriel is not from the books, she is an amazing character and holds her own. Of course there is an implied romance between her and Legolas, so having her paired off with Kili makes so much sense. It further enforces Legolas’s hatred for dwarves (after all, his lady has the hots for one) which he expresses greatly in Lord of the Rings.
Yes, I know none of this is canon, but I don’t care. This is how logic works in the mind of a fangirl. Now pardon me while I ship this couple and look up amazing fanart on Tumblr.
Champion by Marie Lu was released early November 5, 2013 and the author ended her book tour at the Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore in Redondo Beach. The back of the bookstore was crowded with fans by the time I arrived, many of them were young girls with their moms (well, there were boys too!). The event started with Marie talking about her writing methods and afterwards, she took (non-spoiler-y) questions from her readers. As usual, her fans were very curious and enthusiastic with lots of interesting questions for the author!
Since it’s no secret that our Lady Geeks are Fast and the Furious fans, Gizzy B and the Space Pirate Queen pay a little tribute to Paul Walker. We also discuss Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and the new Godzilla trailer. Fanfic Theatre: Star Wars.
