Earlier this year F4F did a series of shows on nothing but femslash from current and former televised crime dramas. One TV show that wasn't covered during that series, however, may be the most popular one of all - Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. You don't need a manifesto (although you'll have no difficulty finding one) to see why so many people 'ship pairings involving Detective Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay). Strong, intelligent, absolutely beautiful, empathic, with her share of personal trauma, and not a whole lot of romantic history with other men. Oh, and did I mention the subtext? A group of fans, which has grown exponentially, almost immediately picked up on sexual tension between Olivia and ADA Alexandra Cabot (Stephanie March) throughout their working relationship. Even the show's writers themselves have acknowledged that they know the fans are out there, and that they've been willing to indulge them. And speaking of writers . . . we'll be talking to three talented femslash authors during tonight's show. To talk about their Alex/Olivia fics will be "Live Like You Were Dying" author D, and creator of the "Spark" trilogy Harriet. And representing the fans who enjoy the pairing of Olivia with Cabot's replacement, ADA Casey Novak (Diane Neal), will be "Damaged Justice" writer sHaYcH.
