We love talking about our fandoms. We also love talking about why we love our fandoms and why we love Fandom. That's why at every con you'll find discussion panels, and Pacificon 2012 is no exception! Check out the schedule.

Here at [ profile] pacifi_cant | [community profile] pacifi_cant , we can meta (yes, it's a verb now) with the best of them. So we thought we might host some discussion panels of our own.

Here's how it works:

• I will list the topics being discussed at Pacificon below.

• You can claim one of the topics as your very own, and write a post about it. The post can be as long or as short as you like.

• You post your meta on the day it's being discussed at Pacificon, i.e., Saturday or Sunday (Pacific time!). NOT BEFORE!

• People can drop into your post and chat away to their hearts content.

History of Us: The Evolution of Fandom
Sherlock Holmes (All)
If Loving You is Wrong, I don't Wanna Be Right
Star Trek (All)
Why AU?
Geeky Crafter
F.O.U.F. – Fic of Unusual Format

Writing What You Don't Know
Due South
Comics (Broad)
I Hear Voices in my Head
Kinky Bitches
Let us tell you a story – Podfic as collaboration
Sherlock (BBC)
Pimp my fandom

Points to Remember
• This is YOUR meta, so write whatever you like on the topic. Don't worry about what might be going on at Bitchin' Party.

• DO NOT post your meta before the day it's being presented. This is out of respect for the panel moderators.

• Comment below to claim your topic.

Castle: I Don't Know Why I Love You, But I Do - Why Castle Is Winning Us Over (meta by Helens)

[community profile] pacifi_cant has its second wind, and that wind seems to be spelled M-E-T-A! I've volunteered to take on the following topic for [community profile] pacifi_cant, so here we go:

Castle: I Don't Know Why I Love You, But I Do - Why Castle Is Winning Us Over

To begin with, the title's a bit of a misnomer -- not only do I know why I love Castle, I can break it down for those of you who aren't familiar with the show or who don't know why anyone is so excited about yet another Moonlighting retread. Buckle up and come along for the ride! Let's start with

What is this Castle show? )

Nathan Fillion: O Captain My Captain )

Maiden, Mother, Crone? Screw That: We'll Take Awesome Women In Three Generations, And You Can Call Them By Name, Buster )

Snappy Patter, One-Liners, And Characters You Want To Bring Home: The Writing Staff Is Good At Its Job )

What, The Black Guy *Didn't* Do It? (or, Yes, It Is Possible Not To Fail At Diversity On A Major Network) )

If Your Charm Ain't Doin' It, You Might Have To Show People You're A Real Person: How Rick Castle Is Not A Static Character )

NOTHING HAPPENED: They Aren't Doing It Yet (Unless You Read The Fanfic) )

Ryan And Esposito: So Freakin' Married That... Can You Even Read Them As Just Buddies? )

Mixed Media: How Twitter, Print, And Pop Culture References Are Putting The Icing On My Castle Cake )

I hope you've enjoyed this trip through my Castle glee! It's a wonderful show, and I'm looking forward to the rest of season 2 and all of season 3!

Meta: Fandom is Part of My Life, Too!

From the moment I stumbled across a Charmed website while looking for episode summaries back in 2001, Fandom has been a part of my life. )
