OK, so, I'm making a vid. *coughs* (No, really!) (I mean, I have plans for several, but this one might actually have enough impetus to get made. ???)


It's a femslash vid, surprise! I want examples of reunions, making up, getting back together after a break. These can be canon (I'm thinking Imagine Me and You and its ilk, it's quite a genre with queer films), fix-its (it would be fairly easy to make a constructed reality version for HG and Myka from WH13 for example), other, and canon or subtext. Genderqueer and trans characters obv welcome, I quite like [community profile] femslashex's definition on that. I'd like it not to be blindingly white, and my media intake is not what it could be on that front, so recs appreciated.

No pairing is too obvious, I tend to get an amazing block when I think of these sorts of lists, so please just hit me with everything you can think of, and feel free to share around and send others my way.

I haven't decided whether to pick half a dozen and mirror/parallel them or just cram as much as I can in to the timeline, so I'd rather have a wide array to choose from.

goodbyebird: Spartacus: Ilithyia kisses Lucretia. (Spartacus let us see it unwrapped)
From: [personal profile] goodbyebird
Lucretia and Ilithia on Spartacus did some kissing and hugging here and there, and I know the preseries had one of the ladies in a relationship with another lady, but I haven't seen that one.

Root and Shaw on Person of Interest is pretty much the light of my life atm. I am actually hoping maybe they'll make it canon! I have hope! Here I can give you a more detailed description of which episodes to check, as I'm making notes for my own vid. (not fully caught up yet though)

Kalinda has had several relationships with women on The Good Wife. I can give you good pointers of scenes in the recent season(kissing, being affectionate in bed, hugging affectionately in front of the bathroom mirror, etc), but that character also showed up sporadically in s1/2, and I haven't the foggiest where(char is Lana Delany, imdb should be helpful).

Nice hugging and such between Kahlan and Cara on Legend of the Seeker :D

ABBI AND ILLANA!! Broad City is a gold mine, any episode will provide ;)

Nikita and Alex on Nikita. Plenty of hugging and making up there =)

Nurse Jackie for Jackie and O'Hara ♥♥

Willow and Tara, obvs! Black Sails for lesbian pirates? Defiance for Stahma/Kenya. Orange Is The New Black. Orphan Black. Haven't watched Chicago Fire but one of the main characters there is gay. Tara on True Blood, though I stopped watching right around the time she got a girlfriend, I also know she hooked up with Pam later on. Carnivàle for Sophie/Libby.

I haven't gotten any ideas for what to do yet, sorry! And I can't get to the gdoc thing since I don't have gmail. Could you list the songs still not taken?

Can't think of anything with canon couples off the top of my head (except Willow and Tara in Entropy), but here are some subtext suggestions that might be the sort of thing you're after:

- Nyssa and Tegan in Arc of Infinity!

- there's a nice moment with Buffy letting Faith into her house in Dirty Girls.

- if you count falling out and making up within the space of an episode, The Middleman has Wendy showing up for her BFF Lacey's spoken word performance art piece in "The Flying Fish Zombification".

- Are you included animated source as well as live action? If so, there's a nice hug between M'gann and Artemis in Young Justice (I think the episode is Depths) when Artemis gets back into superheroing - I used it in Salute, actually, it's at about 1'08. Also, I hear that a recent Korra episode involved (possible spoilers) (skip) a Korra/Asami reunion.

Will let you know if I come up with any more!

Jess and Jules in Bend It Like Beckham?

From: [personal profile] forthwritten

There are rumours that Bend It Like Beckham was actually meant to end with Jess and Jules as a couple, but this would have been one step too far for a conservative Indian audience. So it's a case of text becoming subtext :(

Anyway, AO3 obviously liked that theory a lot. And here is some more inspiration.

kaydeefalls: morgana/gwen sad shoulder-touching moment (morgana/gwen)
From: [personal profile] kaydeefalls
Not canonical lesbians, but in Merlin, Gwen & Morgana have lots of subtextual moments, at least in S1 & S2. Um, the end of S2's "Lancelot and Guinevere" comes to mind in particular, but there's also some good angsty interaction between them in S1's "To Kill the King" (see icon).

Willow/Tara you obviously have.

Angsty canonical lesbian reunion, fighting, and final break-up between Sara (Black Canary) and Nyssa (Ra's Al Ghul's daughter) in Arrow S2 ep "Heir to the Demon". (Might be other instances later as well, I haven't caught up with the show yet.)

This is where I reveal my less-than-cool taste in television, but... Caroline and Kate from Last Tango in Halifax? Canonical relationship, lots of angst, then they have a really sweet reunion at a wedding in the last ep of S2.

Reunionating! Let's see.

Kaylee and Inara have some nice reunionating hugs - once in the pilot and one other episode, can't remember off the top of my head I'm afraid.

Jenny and Vastra - Jenny comes back from near-death at one point in the s7 finale and there's some clutching.

Emily and Naomi in Skins go through quite a few dramatic teenage makeups and breakups over their two seasons.

Orphan Black - Cosima and Delphine definitely have some fights and make-ups (and make-outs!) but I've only watched the show once and can't remember specific episodes. Perhaps ask Jenni, who watched it more recently, or Fray who just vidded it?

Saving Face! - You've probably seen this (it's the other one in my Imagine Me & You vid). It definitely has the classic break-up/make-up thing going on, and a really lovely dance scene.

Will let you know if I think of others. So exciting you're vidding!

If web series are good sources, I'd point you to the S3 finale of Out with Dad and to LESlieVILLE

Also, I'm sure we've mentioned this, but Lost Girl would be a good one for this! Ooooh, also! Bad Girls - Nikki and Helen!

It wasn't canon, but a whole lotta subtext: Michonne and Andrea in The Walking Dead season 3. They are reunited in the finale (or maybe second last episode? I forget) and Andrea has been bitten; it's sad and beautiful and has a series of looks at each other that would be good for vidding. Bonus for your requirements is Michonne is black.

Oh, thank you! Mayyyybe? I might get Cara to help me clip, The Walking Dead freaks me out just from gifsets on Tumblr!
