One more reason to love Babylon 5

LBGTQA. Minbari.

No seriously, hear me out.

LBGTQA Minbari.

Lesbian Minbari who discover that they like girls, feeling like they are flying when they have their first kiss, holding hands with their girlfriends, and learning all about love in an environment that feels right for them. Gay Minbari who discover that they like boys, getting butterflies when their crush tells them that they like them back, and learning all about love without feeling like they have to hide. Bisexual and Pansexual Minbari who discover that everyone is hot, and having boyfriends and girlfriends, and all kinds of partners, learning about love from multiple perspectives, and flourishing as people. Asexual Minbari who discover that sex isn’t for them but throw themselves into their friendships and just love everyone they come across, never being made to feel left out just because they’re not sexual. Transexual Minbari learning all about being a different gender on the inside, and learning all about becoming the person that they feel they are. Genderfluid Minbari discovering that who they are on the inside can change depending on all sorts of things, and being a hot boy one day and a cute girl the next.

But the best bit, THE FUCKING BEST BIT!

LBGTQA Minbari coming out to their family and their friends, telling the people who matter the most to them who and what they are because they want to share who they are with the people that matter most to them.

Friends and family of LBGTQA Minbari being unsure how to react, their expectations and ideas about their child, their friend, suddenly subverted, and having to adjust to the truth about who they are, and the confusion and uncertainty shows on their faces, and they just say:

'It is the calling of my heart.'

And in an instant, walls fall, doubts and fears are erased, and hugs are given and all is well. Because Valen taught the Minbari to honour the calling of each others’ hearts, and Minbari know to respect the calling of a heart. Because if you don’t then it is YOU who are wrong. Period. End of Discussion.

RESPECT. THE. CALLING.

Yay got my Babylon 5 novel in the mail. Can’t wait to read it! Considered canon by JMS, it’s about what happened to the Commander Sinclair character between his departure from Babylon 5 until his return in the 3rd season. We’re back into watching B5 in the evenings before sleep

BOP at Nine Worlds

If any of our listeners/followers will be attending Nine Worlds this weekend, Both Matt and I will be there too! We’d love to meet you, so please come and say hello :D

I’ll be on the Realities of Podcasting panel at 11:45am on Friday as well, if you haven’t had enough of me wittering on. It’d be really nice to see some friendly faces in the crowd. [GC]

Jeffrey Sinclair: So, who set the parameters for what it meant to be a pure Ikarran?
Stephen Franklin: A coalition of religious fanatics and military extremists that ran the government. They programmed the weapons with a level of standards based on ideology, not science.
Sinclair: Like the Nazi ideal of the perfect Aryan during World War Two.
Franklin: Exactly. In the next invasion, eleven of the machines were released, and they stopped the invaders by killing anything that didn't match their profile of the pure, perfect Ikarran. When they were finished, the machines turned on their creators. They began a process of extermination based on the slightest deviation of what they were programmed to consider normal. They killed and kept killing until the last Ikarran was dead.

The universe puts us in places where we can learn. They are never easy places, but they are right.

This is beautiful and touching (and made me cry my eyes out), and it kind of scares me how many cast members and people involved in the production of B5 are gone…

Question: Does a Babylon 5 fandom still exist?

hollow-requiem:

So I’ve been watching this old early 90s sci-fi series that is literally as old as I am and that my mom straight up tells me that she used to watch when I was just a couple of months old called Babylon 5. My parents keep on buying all of the old seasons and we’ve all been really getting into it…
