Yet for this native born heroine of Zeferia, there will always be a new challenge. This was hard figuring out novels or anime continuity, eventually went with novels.

Anyway, my husband is the hero of the hour for this one. Had been working on edits all day when I let my 6 year old who I’ve nicknamed Wreck It play on my tablet, and he managed to hard locked it good and I was worried I’d lost everything for a bit, but fortunately I married a computer scientist and he got it working again. Otherwise this might not have gotten out for another month depending on how much was lost.

22. Favorite hairstyle in the series?

People who know me in real life would laugh and agree that I could easily answer the worse hairstyle in the series (Rezo…he looks like Bozo the clown with a bad hair dye).

As for favorite…that’s a lot harder. Especially since I don’t like bangs. I’ll just go with Lina’s.

16. If you were in Lina’s position would have cast the Giga Slave?

With the caveat that we rarely really know how we would act in high risks situations (we tend to overestimate our abilities to handle everything perfectly without freezing), logically I would say yes. If Lina had refused to cast it to save Gourry, Hellmaster would have kept killing her other friends, and then he could have either targeted her family or held a random town hostage and killed them all, and kept doing it until she decided to cast it. I ultimately see Lina being in a damned if you do, damned if you don’t place. While she may have been able to go home, summon Luna and every other powerful human she’s ever met to fight him, I think Phibrizzo would have spent the time she took doing that to kill a large number of people. Basically she made a high stakes gamble: keep as many people living as possible versus the whole world.

13. What attracted you to the series?

Lina’s fight to win speech, and the way she is the big hero in the story, and the way she has friendships with other women, and the epic, rather unconventional approach it took with the love story aspect, and the humor.

7. What is your favorite quote from the series?



I have several, but I decided to go with this one because this was my turning point for falling in love with the series, and when I did a search to make sure I did it right I found someone have put it in a nice video format! Needed this back in college for my pre-test routines, or back in the days before I was self-employed for job interview preps.

5. OTP?

You have to ask?


I love Lina with the person who loves Lina, flaws and all. And what's even more amazing, is rather than Lina being the perfect Penelope, always forgiving of her Odysseus, the roles are reversed, with Lina taking on a lot of the more masculine traits and Gourry being the emotional support.

Plus, as soon as Gourry became the damsel in distress forcing Lina to have to go on an adventure to save him...

2. Favorite episode(s)?

I had to think about this a bit because of the whole continuing plotline thing. I decided to focus on moments in episodes that I like. And it would have to be:

I did one of these a few years back on LJ, but I found this one on Tumblr and it’s different, so I’ll resurrect this and give it a whirl. I need some escapism.

Previous Novels )

Plot

Episodes 18 thru let’s say most of 22 are based off this novel. Once they get to Dragon’s Peak it should start sounding very familiar. A lot happens! Xellos’ true nature is revealed to the group. Zel and Amelia make some great leaps in character development. And Lina and Gourry’s commitment to each other grows stronger.

Sorry this took awhile. Lots of characters and a lot of stuff happened. )

Fandom: Slayers
Title: A Little Strength Left
Chapters: 1 of 3
Summary: Lina and Gourry deal with their fears and anxieties, that seem to grow alongside their growing family. Sequel to Slayers EXPECTING and The Baby Blues Series, though Baby Blues really isn't needed to follow along. Warnings for pregnancy related stuff, though if you could handle EXPECTING, you can definitely handle this. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] pharoah999 for betaing!

I enjoyed reading through The Slayers Confessions. Good to see so much Lina love! One thing that struck me was the person who wrote that Lina gets shipped with everyone because everyone wants to be her so she's shipped with the person's fan crush.

And where I cut a tangent into why Lina/Gourry is the best ship ever. )
