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.

It’s been awhile since we’ve come down so starkly on different sides of an issue but here it is: this week we talk about Kingsman, which Pru loved and MK despised. But before that, we’re going to talk about Rizzoli & Isles, Community, and the X-Files before answering a few questions and giving you some hot recs.

Break out your widows weeds and best funerary hankies, /reporters, because this week we’re exploring the wide and wonderful world of character death. Pru and MK are joined by Death Moon Merelyn and Black Snowflake Waldorph to discuss when character deaths work, when they don’t, and which ones have been the most affecting in their tear-stained memories.

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.
