Pentagon B + C So You Want to Mod a Panel
Aral (arallara), Ellen Fremedon
If you've never modded a con panel before but you've always wanted to give it a try, this is the panel for you. Whether it's your 1st con or your 15th, we'll give you tips on putting together an engaging, fun panel, and share stories from successful and disastrous panels of the past. Everything you'll need to know to feel confident stepping forward as a panel mod.
10:00 AM Pentagon B + C Marvel MCU Women or; Why Hasn't Black Widow Gotten a Movie Yet?
Beth H. (bethbethbeth), Justhuman
Discussion about Black Widow, who should play Captain Marvel (or who has been cast as Captain Marvel), and can we get Monica Rambeau or Kamala Khan in a movie?
10:00 AM Eisenhower A Be an AO3 Power User
melannen
How do you tag on AO3? How do you filter results? How do you run an exchange, or use collections, or bookmarks? What are the best ways to get help or offer suggestions? How do things work behind the scenes? How do AO3's technical limitations affect the Archive's features? Tips, tricks, toys, links, and so on.
10:00 AM Eisenhower B OT3s and Polyfic: Moving Beyond the Closed Triad
kerithwyn ('rith), Melusina
OT3s are great! But...what else is there, and how can we put it in our fanworks? A discussion of polyfic of all stripes, from the closed triad to the polycule!
11:00 AM Pentagon B + C Beyond Fanservice: So This Is What It's Like to Be the Target Demographic
Ellen Fremedon, Holli
Hands up: how many of us had no plans to see Fury Road before the MRA boycott hand-sold us a ticket? How many of us left the theater dazedly murmuring "So this is what it's like to be an 18-to-34-year-old male"? Let's talk about what it's like to actually be the target demographic for a mass media product, and how fannish practices are changing or likely to change as this becomes a more common experience. Likely fandoms for discussion include Jupiter Ascending, Mad Max: Fury Road, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the Ghostbusters reboot, Hamilton, Jessica Jones, and whatever else has made you sit up in your seat and say "ME. They made this for me."
11:00 AM Eisenhower A Fading Fandoms!
Flamingo, MrsHamill
Some classic fandoms (Highlander and The Sentinel, for instance) are dwindling in activity. How do you deal with being a fan in one of these "fandoms in twilight"? Let's talk about ways to stay involved, and possible ways to reinvigorate these gems.
11:00 AM Eisenhower B Kink in Fandom: Keeping it Real
DJ (FlutterFyre/KissofFlame), Katie (ktnb)
Some stories with kink in them are amazingly hot. Others are hot right up until the characters do (or don't do) something that throws the reader completely out of the illusion that has been so carefully crafted (how did that rope suspension with no beams or other suspension point happen without someone landing on their ass?) What do you love about kink in fics? What do you hate? Let's discuss different aspects of kink, where to find good kinky fanfics, and how to incorporate healthy kink into your stories.
12:00 PM Pentagon B + C On Location: Realistically Incorporating Places You've Never Been in Your Fanworks
gnomad, Thalia
Ever wondered how to vividly describe the streets of a distant city based on Wikipedia, Google Maps, and the advice of randoms from Yahoo! Answers? Tired of reading stories where Steve Rogers rides the subway in D.C. and the Metro in NYC? This panel is to exchange tips on adding that tinge of realism to fanwork that's set somewhere you've never been.
12:00 PM Eisenhower A Harry Potter: After All This Time? Always.
cinco, KateKintail
Harry Potter: forever girl of fandom, little black dress, persistent happy place. Many of us still love Harry Potter after all this time! What about this fandom keeps us coming back? Why is there never enough worldbuilding, 8th year, lost-the-war, and one billion other HP-specific trope fic? Even Astolat's still shipping Harry and Draco. Let's discuss all those stories we always wanted and never got, and rec the stories that we've joyfully found!
12:00 PM Eisenhower B Imperial Radch
melannen
A thousand eggs all nice and warm
Crack, crack, crack, a little chick is born

2:00 PM Pentagon B From Lovable Rogues to Jerks with Hearts of Gold: A Taxonomy of Assholes and Why We Love Them
Corbae, Dee Laundry
From Rodney McKay to Santana Lopez to Namor, let's talk about why we love characters who are, well, jerks. What's the line between an asshole character and an antagonist? How do characters like Loki or Hannibal stretch our definitions? Do you love asshole characters for themselves or for the tropes they make possible? Discuss!
2:00 PM Pentagon C Everything Doctor Who
MrsHamill
Featuring past companions in Doctor Who and who should be the new companion. And can we get a female Doctor or Doctor of Color (DOC)?
2:00 PM Eisenhower A RPS Is Hard: The Joys and Agonies of Real Person Fandoms
Aral (arallara), Katie (ktnb), Trixie/CL Finn
There is a lot of fun to be had in real person slash fandoms: canon that is fast-moving, open-ended and expansive, and that often offers a multimedia and multi-platform smorgasbord of fannish engagement. But real people are messy and sometimes bands break up, and players get accused of rape, and actors vote Republican, and our hearts get broken. And then there's the tinhatting: what once lurked in email, buried in comment threads or locked communities, has come out of the shadows. Let's talk about what we love and what we definitely do not love about RPS, and what has and hasn't changed in the era of Twitter and Tumblr. Mostly, let's celebrate the things that keep bringing us back.

zvi

Someone reblogged Check Please on your dash. How do you get to these words and pictures? How do you buy and read comics? Where do you learn what's out there? And is there a comic for your tastes? (Spoilers: YES!)
3:00 PM Pentagon C Sherlock Holmes to the Infinite Power
Dorinda
Sherlock Holmes is being reinvented every time we turn around these days, with Sherlock, Elementary, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, Watson & Holmes: A Study in Black, and more. How much of what we love comes from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's original creations, and how much from the modernization? Which interpretations excite us the most?
3:00 PM Eisenhower A Explaining Fannish Experiences to Muggles for Fun and Profit
Aimee Fleck/brofisting, Lily (enviropony), Melusina, Tea Berry-Blue

4:00 PM Pentagon C Death, Where Is Thy Sting?
cmshaw, Venturous
How do you dance with death in your fandom? When your favorite character is killed off in canon, do you grieve for them and move on or do you write, draw, or vid away around the inconvenient fact? How do you save, resuscitate, or resurrect a dead character? On the other hand, if your canon has a revolving death-door where the afterlife is more like a spa retreat, how do you raise the stakes and bring real danger to your beloved characters? We'll discuss which tropes around death and the afterlife inspire you and which ones make you rage (against, of course, the dying of the light).
4:00 PM Eisenhower A It's Alive! The Force Awakens
KatBear, MrsHamill
Along with the shiny new characters, SWTFA gave us hints about what's happened to Luke, Leia, and Han since we last saw them. Let's talk the original trio! And maybe some of the prequel Trilogy, Clone Wars, and Star Wars Rebels mythology, too. And, of course, who is hot and the potential OTPs in SWTFA.

Canon f/f pairings have really taken off. Is fandom keeping up? Or is "Oh femslash, where art thou?" still your first thought every morning? Share your favorite pairings and fics, and tells us why you love them so! Share the love, the passion, the lust, the cuddles, the hate-sex. Share the bonding, the pain, the struggle, the partnership, the against-all-odds, soul-searing awesomeness of it all. Let's talk canon, fanon, characterization, style, tropes. No topic is off limits, no fandom too small. Show us yours, and we'll show you ours! ;-)

10:00 AM Pentagon B + C Team Family Home: A Found Family Panel
Melusina, __clay (Sarah)
The found family trope is a staple of many fandoms (and their canons!). What is it, and why is it so great? Let's discuss the packs, crews, teams, bands, squads, etc. of our hearts.
10:00 AM Eisenhower A Packing Up and Moving House: Learning to Do Your New Fandom
Beth H. (bethbethbeth)
No matter how long you've been involved in fandom, sooner or later, most fandom "lifers" will be drawn to a shiny, new fandom, only to discover that things may be done very differently there. Let's talk about the wide variety of fandom cultures and experiences, how easy (or difficult) it is to hold onto old fandoms, the extent to which different platforms (Livejournal, Dreamwidth, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, etc.) alter the way you engage in your new fandom, and more!
10:00 AM Eisenhower B Sense8: Too Good for Fic?
Aral (arallara), Trixie/CL Finn
Sense8 is a show that has so many things fandom loves: canonical queer characters and relationships, canonical polyamory, telepathic soul bond, a racially and culturally diverse set of characters and storylines, and more! But why no massive fandom? Is Sense8 just too awesome? Is it one of those shows that already gives us everything we need, that proves our theory that the shows with big fandoms tend to be the shows with more for fandom to fix and reframe and flesh out? Let this also be a general purpose Sense8 squee panel!
11:00 AM Pentagon B + C As Described on the Tin: Reading and Writing Content Notes and Tags
afrikate, LightGetsIn
Wanting fanworks to have appropriate and thorough content notes or tags is the ideal, so how do we get there? Fans often say that when they appropriately tag the contents of their work "it sounds too dark" or "but it's not really like that." Where are these impulses coming from, and how do we combat them? Let's talk about improving the ways we read and write content notes and tags, with examples and suggestions, and also delve into unpacking the shaming some authors direct at themselves or their readers through their tags or the lack thereof. Note: this discussion takes as a starting point that content notes are a desirable community good; if you wish to debate that point, please do it elsewhere.
11:00 AM Eisenhower A Is It Different for Girls?
Dee Laundry, zvi
Many popular tropes from m/m fic (mpreg, ABO, bdsm-verse, Rule 63) are plays on sex, gender, and power. How do they play out differently in femslash?
11:00 AM Eisenhower B Star Wars: The Force Awakens - Stormpilot FTW!
Katie (ktnb)
Let's have a Poe/Finn lovefest and celebrate all the things that made their chemistry so delicious! And if we are so moved: bonus discussion of the hot, adorkable weirdos named Oscar Isaac and John Boyega!
12:00 PM Pentagon B + C I'm on Team Everybody Being Friends: Avengers Fandom Post-Civil War
FairestCat, Kristen (tinzelda)
Let's take stock of Avengers fandom post Captain America: Civil War. What's up with all our favourite characters? Where's the great fic and meta and fanart? This panel is for fans of all characters and pairings to squee, flail, cry, or otherwise emote together.
12:00 PM Eisenhower A Fandom's Kitchen: Food and Fanworks
Coyotegestalt (Clay), Neotoma
Description: Sometimes the feelings are on the plate. Sometimes the sandwich means I love you. A discussion of food in fandoms and fanworks, and recipes and food AS fanworks.
12:00 PM Eisenhower B Never Trust a Man in Orange
Caorann, Celli
What do you do when half of your OTP is traded? What happens when you can't stop shipping a Flyers pairing? What happens when your OTP plays for different teams and they have a game against each other? How are you going to survive when your favorite player retires? We don't have the answers, but let's talk about the obstacles hockey RPF throws in our way and some of the fun ways we've found around them. Content note: Patrick Kane will not be a topic of discussion in this panel.

There will be a variety of teas available to drink as we talk, but bringing your own and swapping leaves to take away is also highly encouraged.

kinetikatrue (Kat), zvi
We read and write a lot of sex set in science fiction or fantasy settings, and yet a lot of it still uses the same old sexual positions and sex toys. Let's go beyond convenient nanoprophylactics and lube spells and talk about how everything from antigravity to magic wands to the Force can be brought into the bedroom as well as the plot.
10:00 AM Pentagon C A Walking Tour of Hell's Kitchen
Lily (enviropony)
Let's take a trip to Hell's Kitchen! We'll chat about Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Netflix's take on The Defenders. Love the current Netflix series?

11:00 AM Pentagon B Fat in Fic
Aral (arallara), Venturous
We don't get very many fat characters in media that aren't grotesque caricatures, and it's even rarer that they turn up in our fannish pairings. When they do, how does the fandom and the fic treat their fatness? Do we have difficulty eroticizing fat? Do we not have enough models in media to have learned the language for it, or is it subconscious or conscious fatphobia? If you've been in fandoms with fat characters, come share your experiences and share recs for fandoms and fic with great fat representation!
11:00 AM Pentagon C 1001 Ways to Jump the Broom

Dee Laundry, DJ (FlutterFyre/KissofFlame)
Many of us have felt the need to defend our ships or our fandom kinks or reacted to those of others with "I could NEVER like THAT!" How I learned to never say never, stop cringing and going "EWWW," and leveraged writers and artists I liked to discover new likes and interests in fandom.
12:00 PM Pentagon C All I Wanna Be Is Someone Who Gets to See a Giant Woman

1:00 PM Eisenhower A + B Book Fandoms
ambyr
You've read the book, now see the movie...Wait, there is no movie. How do we handle fandoms with no visual source? How important is it that fanfiction match the writing voice to the canon? How do you find references and inspiration for fanart for an all-text canon? How do you promote your canon when you can't fall back on "they're pretty!"? And what do you do when there suddenly is a movie or TV show, and its fandom dwarfs that of the original work?

Celli, Corbae, Dee Laundry, Katie (ktnb), Rhaegal
It's hard to get everything right when writing outside of our experience, but messing up the details of someone's job, hobby, or home can throw them out of the story. We'll discuss some of the things writers most often get wrong and easy ways to add realism. Come with little-known details about your job or hobby, questions for the experts, or just a willingness to learn.
