Happy Geek Day, all! Do you know where your towel is?

I have with me: a small towel (for Towel Day); a sprig of lilac (for Alzheimer's Awareness Day *sadface*); Converse (for saving the universe actually my silly feet require them); a half-size Captain America shield (for general "I look stupid but AWESOME" geek points). I didn't think to bring my light saber (for the anniversary of the Star Wars premiere 33 years ago) - I should have done that. Next year, maybe! :D
curuchamion: TARDIS in a sunny field (sunny TARDIS field)
Okay, so I was poking InfiniteViking's back archives (as I do - some of my longtime friends know that I tend to marathon interesting people's journal archives when I'm bored, and scatter comments along my way), and I found a "List 100 awesome female characters" meme.

This leads me to realize that I don't even know if I could come up with 25 or 50 awesome female characters, let alone 100. I pay far too little attention to the ladies - heck, the TARDIS is the only female character in my icons right now! O_O Except for her, my favorite characters from my various fandoms fit quite well under the heading of "my guys".

So. For an experiment: rockin' awesome female characters in no particular order. Good, evil, human, alien, inorganic... let's see how many I can come up with!

Hopefully this will be long )

Well! That was educational! It seems that many things I like actually have quite a high concentration of awesome ladies - I just don't primarily focus on them. Granted, most of them are in pretty minor roles. o_O

(Feel free to suggest female characters I missed in the comments! Admittedly, there are some I left out on purpose, but there are also many many many that I just haven't seen yet or plain forgot about. *g*)
Can I get a beta reader or two for an 800-ish-word, no-spoilers, crossover ficlet featuring Discworld and Deep Space Nine characters? I've never written in either of these 'verses before, so I'd like to get my character voices checked (Vimes and Odo, specifically), plus generally see if the story makes any sense to someone besides me.

Obviously, most of y'all will only know one fandom or the other, so please don't hesitate to volunteer if you can beta for one! Please? :-)
