Posting at [livejournal.com profile] halfamoon is going on until the 14th in celebration of characters who identify as women (I'm absolutely thrilled that the festivities are explicitly including characters who aren't cisgendered!) There's been a ton of fantastic fan work posted across a huge variety of fandoms, from the tiny and obscure to the big players, but I want to highlight The Unpopular Woman Love Post.

There are some awesome characters popping up – Riley (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), Gwen (Torchwood), Gwen (BBC Merlin), Jo Grant (Classic Who), Ellen, Jo, and Bela (Supernatural) Dee, Tory, and Cally (Battlestar Galactica), Weir (Atlantis), Dawn (Buffy)

AND SOMEONE STARTED A KATHERINE PULASKI LOVE THREAD! GLEE!

Go show these under appreciated characters some love already!

ELLENNNNNN. WEEEEEEEEEEEIR. :D :D :D

I have to admit, I tend to be kind of harsh on characters who're in my age range (wonder if it's a throwback to when I was bullied? Day to day life I'm often a little ill at ease with my peers, though I'm better than I used to be. Though it could also be irritation at my peers in cinema rarely reflecting my interests irl ^^) but characters significantly younger or older than me I tend to be drawn towards.

I think I may have to go nosey :D!

I've not seen much SGA, but Weir? Totally awesome and I have so much respect. Ellen goes without saying ;) Sadly, I kind of feel like you could put all of the Supernatural women on the list :(

It's interesting that you say that about characters who are your peers in age. I don't know that I've got a trend, aside from "assertive", but it's started me thinking. And honestly, a lot of young women are written appallingly. On a lot of those shows, the same is true of men, but it doesn't change the first fact either.

:P A friend of mine was using it for years before it became popularised, so he gets all of the credit!
