: An Introduction to Farscape Fanfiction (45 minutes). Aeryncrichton, Cofax, and USCB Dad will talk about why they write, what they write, and what they recommend. Topics will include the history and legal status of fanfiction, the best places to find fanfiction, and some suggestions on where to start reading.
Miss the show? Desperate for more adventures about Crichton, D'Argo, Aeryn, Chiana, and the rest of Moya's crew? Long for an explanation of Sikozu's background, wish to find out more about Peacekeepers and Luxans? Want mysteries, adventures, romances, alternate universes?
Fanfiction writers are out there telling all those stories, and more. Come join us in the main auditorium on Sunday to learn about the world of unpaid, unauthorized fiction, where everything is possible and the writing can be as good as any novel on the shelf at Barnes and Noble.
(Sunset Room): Outside of the main convention room, Creation has also set aside space for a fan fic reading room, and an area for those interested in joining other fans in playing the Farscape role playing game. The Sunset room is just off the main room, and will be furnished with tables and comfortable chairs.
All of the site's staff will be in attendance - myself, Mary, Cyn, Angie and Linda - so please say "hi" if you spot us! If you don't know who we are, have a peek at the Saving Farscape panel, and you'll know straight away who me and Angie are (the blabbering Brits!).
