I got distracted by Farscape, DAMN IT.
Does anyone else watch this show? I am FASCINATED by the relationship between Crichton and D’argo, as well as the non-consensual relationship between Crichton and Scorpius (omg I love Scorpius, he FREAKS ME OUT). I love that the female characters are as messed up and complicated and varied as the male characters (Aeryn and Chiana and Zahn are all awesome). I even like Crais, if only because he keeps developing and isn’t stuck as a “villain.”
I like that the men are actually allowed to cry in this show, too. And snuggle, apparently (Stark and Crichton!). I kind of ship Crichton with everyone. Seriously, I think the entire ship should just share him.
YES! This is one of my favorite series ever! The characters, the plots, the interesting things all throughout, the very developed world, the head trip that the series takes you on.
Stark was an amazing character that I don’t think got a lot of attention in fandom. His mental issues were done so well and I loved how the crew handled him.
Everybody was awesome and unique and… yeah, I was very impressed by that show. Everybody was so… well, I can’t even call it human because they were aliens, but fleshed out and full of flaws and most of them had a good core and even the villains had their reasons and pain.
I really liked Chiana. She could be annoying and ridiculous and she made mistakes and was a bit of a jerk, but then she also really cared and could kick ass while laughing and could be extremely loyal.
I don’t know why I never really got into reading fanfic for Farscape. Huh.
OMG YAY HELLO FARSCAPE FAN.
I love Stark. SO. MUCH. It’s so fucking hard to find characters with mental issues that aren’t total stereotypes X_X. I just got to season 3 so I haven’t seen a ton of him, but I love him anyway.
Chiana is one of my favorites, she can be a total freaking jerk but omg. I think I like her because she looks like she’s going to be a stereotype and then she just totally messes up the image and owns it at the same time.
I just started poking around for fanfic, most of it in the slash department seems to be Crichton/D’argo which, hell yes, gimme, but there’s gotta be some Crichton/Scorpius out there somewhere because I am just that twisted. I’m kind of ridiculously in love with Crichton, I think I’d read anything with him at this point, lol. Do you have a fav? It’s hard to pick on this show.
Ugh, picking one? HARD! I think I’ll have to go with Stark just because… well, we share some issues and the actor who played him totally outdid himself. I mean This Intro to his character was awesome! It’s hard to choose between him and Chiana though, and yes, I like her for the same reasons you do!
Crichton suffered so beautifully, especially whenever Scorpio came around. Yeah, I’ve rewatched clips of their interaction over and over for reasons 😀
Harvey is fun. Rygel is such an awesome asshole. D’argo just cracks me up. Jool is this annoying, selfish jerk of a fun character too.
And that’s another thing. The twisted dark humor on this show drew me in really fucking fast. I mean that scene in the first episode when D’argo knocks Crichton out just to shut him the fuck up? Yeah! Love that!
There were also so many interesting things that happened. Some of the shit those writers came up with that the crew had to deal with was just mind blowing!
If you find any good Crichton/Scorpio fic, please let me know. I love twisted dark fic and yeah, I totally love the non-con vibe they had going!
Oh, and Pilot is great too! Love how one minute they’re calm and quiet and caring and then there’s this vicious side too!
