The Lady Geeks discuss the importance of consent when having a celebrity encounter. You should always ask before hugging… or biting (a fan bit Norman Reedus and it wasn’t us!). The girls celebrate the excellence that is Carrie Fisher and discuss Target pretending that Captain Phasma is a man because apparently girls don’t like Star Wars?

The truth is, I haven’t seen a more dedicated fandom than the one for Daryl Dixon. You know, that guy from The Walking Dead television series that all fangirls and fanboys are a little nutty over. I recently just finished a marathon of season 5 of the show and got quite a healthy Norman Reedus dosage while watching the episodes back to back. Which is why this week’s Fanart GLEE is dedicated to Daryl, the most beloved zombie-killer across the nation.
You know how I cannot resist a fun crossover piece of fanfiction? Well today’s Awesome Fanfic Monday is no exception.
This edition of Awesome Fanfic Monday features a piece that combines the worlds of my favorite outlaws: The Fast and Furious family and the good ol’ Boondock Saints.
This week’s fanfiction is Furious Saints by SpiderFlash of Fanfiction.net. The premise of this crossover is that the Furious family has been recruited by… wait for it… Paul Smecker to break the Boondock Saints out of jail. It turns out our favorite flamboyant ball busting FBI Agent is in fact not dead and is still looking after the boys. Dom recruits the Furious Avengers (it’s how the Space Pirate Queen and I like to refer to the whole Furious family) to do the job.
Believe it or not, we’re already gearing up for convention season. Wondercon is less than a couple of weeks away but we are already planning (fretting over?) San Diego Comic-con in July. No worries — we’ve got a kick ass hotel room locked down for this year and our press passes are secured so the Defective ladies will be representing yet again at the biggest west coast nerdfest of the year. I decided to go through some photos and scrounge up some memories to share with the readers today from the many cons I’ve managed to attend in the past years. Read more below for some of these random memories.
