515 Alpha, Beta, Omega

This week, we catch up with some recent fannish news and give an intensely spoilery review of the BBC Sherlock Christmas special — or what NYC HQ can remember of it, anyway. And then we get knotty with special guest Nora Bombay to talk about Alpha/Beta/Omega, that trope that you hadn’t heard of before, but seems to be everywhere now. We discuss where we think it comes from, why it seems to have sparked such interest, and share a few recs along the way, too.

Like a certain famous detective, we’re back from the dead and ready to troll everyone with our many, many thoughts and feelings about the third series of BBC’s Sherlock. Ayalesca joins us as we talk about how much Sherlock deserved to get punched, spoilers, every punch he should have received, Mycroft being amazing, all those punches, and of course, Mary.

Snap on your latex, /reporters, we’re going into the lab. What did you think we meant? You guys are nasty. Anyway – this week, we kidnapped some (mostly) willing science nerds and dragged them down a long dark alley to talk about the scientific basis of some of our favorite slash tropes and universe building. We talk about mpreg, interspecies, parallel universes, time travel, and our favorite topic of all – knotting. So get your eye wash ready, we’re about to hit the road.
