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.

The B side of our Ask Us Anything special is 90% Pru crying, interspersed with an extensive detour into Rule 63, food writing, Pacific Rim, the saddest parts of SPN, writing style questions, and Kate’s love of scrotums. Yeah, we don’t know, either.

Sharpen your angel blades and make sure you’ve located the most torturously painful spot on your body for us to give you the Mark of Cain, because Pru and Waldorph spent a long weekend destroying lobster and watching season nine of Supernatural like fucking champions. We talk the agonizing ambivalence we felt for the majority of the season, the crushing horror of realizing just as we thought we were getting out, they reel us back in. We speculate on what we want out of the next season, the likelihood any of it will happen (lol) and whether or not everybody will die again. Some more. Profound spoilers, like certain bonds, for all of Supernatural season nine.

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.
