Me, Myself & I
With Fats off flying around Europe, delivering much needed supplies to people in need (thanks, Fats!), Woodclaw and myself will be helping him out and picking up the slack in the short-term. So, you're stuck exclusively with our literary tastes for the time being. Therefore, I bring you another installment of Larafan's Literary Likes:
It still amazes me sometimes how LONG it's been and how fast the time has flown since some of these stories were posted. In doing the "research" for Lucille's Lingerie, I practically fell over after seeing that it was submitted in the Spring of 2012 -- EIGHT years ago!
Based soley on it's 'shelf age', I'm sure this story has escaped the watchful eyes of some of our readers, especially the newer visitors to SWM. Lucille's Lingerie is a classic tale that you'd find in any "Beautification & Superpowers via Mystical Clothing" section of your local ubergirl bookstore. While it doesn't have nearly the depth or plot as some of the stories at SWM, one will find it hard to not recognize Vortigern's formidable skills on display with turning a mousy girl into a swan--a Super Swan, no less! Despite the rather short length, the story packs a lot of steamy sexiness and beautification along with some classic ubergirl feats of strength. I always appreciated this story, and when we came up with the Story Spotlight, I always knew it would be one of my early choices. The author, Vortigern, wrote another story, Darkness Rising, as a followup but then sadly disappeared from the ubergirl fiction scene, disappearing across the ubergirl fiction horizon like so many other authors do...
Quite concidentally, a wonderful new series, A Common Weakness, recently was posted to our library by a new author, Dumanoir. I sent him an encouraging note with some feedback, as I sometimes do, and we ending up striking up a conversation over a series of emails. Well, lo and behold, Dumanoir has written some stories earlier under the the name--yep, you guessed it--Vortigern! Never since the whole "Einhorn is Finkle, Finkle is Einhorn" thing had I been so surprised, pleasingly as well, especially since I was actually getting ready to feature it in this column. Dumanoir actually gave me permission for the pseudonym reveal for this writeup as well, so thanks to him for that as well as he's fantastic stories.
I hope you'll check it out Vortinoir's (or is it Dumagern?) story, Lucille's Lingerie, by simply clicking on the title if haven't already or maybe go back and give it another read and tell him you loved it. If nothing else, with some added encouragement, we'll get a lot more Common Weakness!
Welcome to the first episode of Admin Spotlight Story Theatre, where the admin staff at SWM picks and spotlights a personal favorite or forgotten gem, plucked from the vast archives of the SWM Library. With nearly 1000 stories in our ubergirl archives, it's easy to miss, and sometimes forget, some of these stories. So Fats, Woodclaw, and myself will be spotlighting a different story each week in hopes everyone, especially those who have recently joined SWM, will give it a read and maybe comment on it. So without further ado, here is the first featured story of Larafan's Literary Likes:
When Woodclaw asked me which story I was thinking of featuring, this one came to mind rather easily for a variety of reasons. Those quite familiar with ubergirl fiction might remember this tale fondly from back when Diana the Valkyrie's library was worth visiting on a daily basis. In my mind, it was one of the first stories back then (circa 1997) that really showcased a sexy protagonist being super and relishing in the experience in a wonderful fantasy-fueled tale. How much did I like it? Well, when I started the now-defunct Supergirls, Inc site, it was the first story I remember loading in the library. Flashing forward to the early days of SWM, what do you think was the first story that was loaded in the library? Yep, CMac!
On a personal note, CMac was the story that actually prompted me to pick up a pen...er...keyboard and begin to write my own stories, the first eventually becoming the screenplay of The Awakening! Several stories later, I have 007 to thank, or blame, depending on your perspective. Shortly after CMac appeared, 007 did a second story called Gym Conqueror which featured one of the sexiest and rather X-rated gym scenes you'll find in ubergirl fiction. It was just as fantastic, but then...
007 disappeared like the stealth secret agent he is, never to write another genre story (that I am aware of). Many years later, as part of one of the SWM writing workshops, a sequel to CMac called aptly Christina McCallister Part 2 was submitted under the nom de plume of 008. It just wasn't the same. I don't say that to diss the author because I can come clean now and admit that myself and Conceptfan wrote it under the 008 moniker. I did contact 007 prior and get his blessing prior though, begging for more from him, but I didn't get anything other that his blessing to go ahead with the sequel.
Ironically, 007 popped up recently this past year in discord, and we've chatted a few times. He talked about possibly writing genre fiction again one day, but to this date he hasn't submitted anything that I know of. And that is just fine cause he already gave us a great legacy with Christina McCallister, Part I. I hope you'll check it out by simply clicking on the title if haven't already or maybe go back and give it another read. It's worth it!
With all the hullabaloo about Supergirl, Jessica Jones, and the rest of the mainstream media ubergirls, it's been a while since we did a recap/report of some of the latest offerings by our genre producers. Before the 2015 bumper crop of ubergirl shows like Supergirl and Jessica Jones hit, the genre producers were one of our only outlets to get our "fix" for superstrong and sexy women kicking ass. We hope we'll continue to support these outfits so that they'll continue to make more of these in the very near future.
While KAK has being disappointing to many of us for their lack of "superness", they occassionally have thrown our genre a bone and given us a superheroine-themed video from time to time. The is little doubt that the Kandy Girls are some of the most beautiful AND physically gifted genre actresses around. That is why it always seemed such a "waste" to NOT have them endowed with superpowers and kicking even more ass than they normally do. Well, time to rejoice cause KAK this past week just posted "Last Kandy Hunter" starring Kix in one of their best -- if not THE best -- storylines featuring a superpowered protagonist. While Kix is not in a traditional superheroine costume, her powers are undeniable. Invulnerability, throat lifts, bar bending and even a touch of superbreath are exhibited by the beautiful ubergirl in her own snarky style that is sure to please even the most discriminating purchaser. This video was shot as a custom for one of our own members, so that you tell you that this one is a must see! Trust me, guys....buy it.....now!
Amidst the hoopla of better know and more publicized genre outfits, TKS Productions has grown a strong following within the genre and has been cranking out solid uber-themed vignettes at an incredible pace. His latest endeavor is titled "The Secretary" and is another solid production. In my opinion, TKS has steadily improved his production values and FX, incorporating more "uberness" aside from his trademark throatlifts in some of his latest projects. The Secretary is no exception with samples of bar bends and superbreath incorporated as part of her power set. TKS videos are all action driven, and there is not a lot of fluff in the films, so I hope SWM fans will give this a second look -- as well as a third and fourth look! I was privy to a sneak peek of one of his upcoming projects which is bigger in scale, and it looks really good! There will also be some customs coming up in the near future featuring costumes that I know everyone will want to see as well! But until then, make sure you check them out!
With the depart of SSH and the Steeles, Project: Superwoman dominated for a while in the costumed girl-power arena for a while, but they've since been on a hiatus of sorts, with only a few products being released rather sparsely. I have been told, however, they they are STILL in business, and the release of their photoset last week somewhat confirms that. In addition, I was told there will be another release of a photoset featuring fan-favorite Ashley coming soon as well as a video starring AZ Powergirl which is now in post-production. While their quality hasn't suffered, I look forward to them returning to a more regular schedule in the future. Until then, make sure you check out their library of fabulous ubergirl videos!
In celebration of the premiere of Supergirl on CBS here in the States, SWM would like to declare the 2015 Winter Writer's Workshop Open! For those unfamiliar with our writing workshops, it is basically a workshop/contest where we challenge our fanbase to create a story matching a particular theme (e.g. "Sibling Rivalry"). Well, after almost 30 different workshops, we've decided to take different spin on the Workshop this time, in an effort to pull in more entries -- from existing and new authors! Rather than having the participants write and create a story around a central theme, we're simply going to provide the following three 'writing prompts' from which the user will be required to pick one as the first sentence of their entry:
- The young woman stood silently with her fists clenched as she stared up at the massive steel door.
- She instinctively groaned softly as she suddenly regained consciousness, feeling suddenly energized more than she had ever felt before.
- The gunman smirked as he suddenly raised his weapon and fired it suddenly at the woman.
After that first sentence, it's completely up to the author! Two page superheroine anecdote? 10,000 word ubergirl saga? Simply a kick-ass action scene in a few paragraphs? Pulse racing supervillainess rampage scene? A power fantasy dream sequence? It's all whatever the author feels suits them best!
This go-round there is no word minimum or maximum, and the entry does not even have to be a complete story or involve a complete plot (though that would probably garner more votes, IMO). Also to note is that after starting with one of the prompts, the entry does not have to simply progress from there. Flashbacks, flash-forwards, and even flash-sideways are perfectly allowed if the author so desires.
We purposefully tried to make things as 'generic' as possible for the authors to take their own literary license and head down more than one possible path, so hopefully one (or more) of these ideas will get some creative ubergirl ideas percolating inside some of our authors heads.
Due to the 'experimentation nature' of this workshop, we've decided to not award prizes this go-round, other than bragging rights. Our goal , as with all the workshops, is to provide some fresh content for the Library as well as foster some dormant creativty in the minds of not only our existing writers but also any budding authors out there.
As for the "rules", here they are:
- Each entry MUST start with one of the three provided prompts
- Authors may submit up to three separate entries
- All entries must include an 'ubergirl' type of character in their story
- All characters must be over the age of 18
- SWM reserves the right to withhold and/or disqualify submitted entries based on their sole discretion of the content.
- Entries must be received no later than Dec 15th, 2015 at 11:59pm EST. SWM, however, reserves the right to grant reasonable deadline extensions.
- Once submitted, entries will be voted on by the SWM user via an online poll
With all the announcements of the Supergirl TV series and the recent behind-the-scenes work on the publishing system, we have held up the announcement of the 2015 Winter Workshop Winner for far too long. If you had been following the poll, it should come as no surprise that GeekSeven's "Lara Croft and the Torch of Rao" torched the opposition to a comfortable win. Please help me in congratulating G7 on a well-deserved win and a great addition to the library.
Thanks again goes to all those who participated as well in the workshop and added their works to our growing fiction library. You can check out "Lara Croft and the Torch of Rao" as well as all the other entries HERE.
“May You Live in Interesting Times” is a popular Chinese saying that has been around for a while and has even made it into a couple of movies, most notably Donald Sutherland’s CEO speech in Disclosure. Aside from the fact that Disclosure was a pretty bad movie, and the fact that it’s not a saying (it’s apparently from a curse), and it’s not Chinese in origin, I STILL think it’s never been more apropos in the Girl Power Community than right now. With the announcement yesterday of various members of CBS’s Supergirl’s cast and production crew, it is now official: ubergirl fans have NEVER had so much to be excited about!
I, like some others here, have been in this community for a long time. How long? Long enough to have written and helped produce a full length superheroine film (The Awakening) – over 7 years ago! Long enough to have started and run arguably TWO of the premier ubergirl sites on internet (SWM and SGI). Even long enough to remember when the Aurora Universe got started – on the Amazon Arena BBS! And in no time during that period, have we had more ubergirl content to soak up and enjoy for the masses than we do now.
Comics. Comics have been the one mainstay for our genre and have usually been one of the only resources ubergirl fans had been able to flock to. Comics are still around, but superheroines are getting much more airtime than previous. While relegated often to being members or even auxiliary members of superhero teams, our girls are now more at the forefront. Powerhouse heroines like Supergirl, She-Hulk, Captain Marvel, Ms Marvel, Power Girl have all had their own titles in the past year. All female X-Men and Avengers teams have joined the fray as well (or soon will) letting mainstream comic readers follow the exploits of a female superteam, a space of comicdom previously only occupied by AC Comics’ Femforce and a few fledgling independents. And speaking of independents, Comixology and other digital outlets have made producing and reading superheroine books easier than ever. Small press titles that feature superheroines like Tomorrow Jones, Once Upon a Caper, MegaWoman, and others are now available with a Paypal account and a single-click (well, a few clicks).
Internet Content. With the departure of the Steele Family and SuperSexyHeroines.com, there appeared to be a lull in the “genre space” category of internet ubergirl content which has since been filled quite adequately by newer production outfits like Wicked City Girls and TKS Productions who have been cranking out great looking short-films, chock-filled with strength-feats and action. In addition, though things have slowed down, Project: SuperWoman still appears to be the go-to site for girl power and action featuring costumed actresses and models. And I’ve heard rumblings of more potential producers or productions on the way, including the highly anticipated Mighty Woman! Finally, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention MaidenComics.com somewhere in here. If someone had told me ten years ago that there would be a streaming site like Hulu and Netflix, completely dedicated to female action and girl power, I would have laughed at them. But that day is now, as MaidenComics.com has now taken girl power mainstream with their new channel, featuring female action series, including offerings from Wicked City Girls as well as original ubergirl-related films like Athena, Goddess of War. While their content base is a little limited right now, it appears they are moving in the right direction, and I hope a large part of our community will support their efforts.
Television. I think a lot of people in this community can credit their gravitation towards superheroines somewhat in part to watching Lynda Carter and Lyndsey Wagner doing superheroic things on the screen back in the mid 70’s. Since then, however, superfem action time on TV has been almost non-existent, as most were left settling on episodes of various programs that might have superheroine tropes. Boy, are we making up for lost time now! First up, we have Agents of Shield which now has a bonafide superheroine (Skye) on its team and includes another superpowered female (Raina) along with possibilities of ubergirl guest stars (Sif) and plotlines. Next, coming in a few weeks we have Powers which features a host of ubergirls (Retro Girl, Zora, Callista), depending on how they choose to depict them. Jessica Jones on Netflix, featuring the former superheroine Jewel, is next up on Netflix later this year and offers great ubergirl possibilities. Messengers on CW, and even iZombie (CW), Agent Carter also may not feature superheroines but they all seem to include kick-ass girls as integral parts of their cast. Teen Titans (featuring Starfire, Dawn and Raven) is also strongly a possibility for next year’s lineup on TNT, and let’s not also forget other possible comic superheroines or villainesses showing up on Flash or Arrow. Finally, about a year or two ago, I was lamenting on what-could-have-been when the WW Pilot was not picked up. However, the ubergirl gods smiled down on us and left us with something possibly better – Supergirl!! Supergirl on CBS is the most exciting news for our fanbase (well, most of them) since….well, EVER! I’m sure Supergirl’s time onscreen will pale in comparison to Kara’s – and we will all complain – but the fact remains, that our genre has hit the mainstream! And that is beyond a good thing….
Movies. For mainstream superheroines, the past 30 years on the silver screen has given us Supergirl, Elektra, and Catwoman. Umm…..no comment. Fear not, SWManiacs, cause the next three years is going to yield us a Wonder Woman solo movie (after a prominent role in Superman/Batman), and a Captain Marvel movie!! In addition, appearances by superheroines in the Avengers and Justice League is almost guaranteed. Even our friends across the Pacific have a new Darna movie coming out later this year! And that doesn’t even cover the plethora of superheroine independent films/projects being Kickstarted or independently produced (see Maiden’s Athena, Goddess of War)!
Whew! I’m sure I missed something in there, but hopefully I made my point about the “interesting times” part! Hopefully, everyone here recognizes that ubergirls are chic right now (my god, “Supergirl” was trending on Twitter the day Melissa Benoist was cast)! As such, it might be people’s reactions to talk less about it or create less because there is now more around us, but that’s not what I hope everyone is thinking. I sincerely hope everyone is as excited as we are about these “interesting times” and continues to make their voice heard on the forums and in their creations. A voice that says “yeah, I liked this stuff before it was cool!”
This week, we had the deadline to the 2015 Winter Writing Workshop, and are pleased to present the four entries to everyone. The theme of the contest was trying to write a story based off the artwork submissions from the previous Graphical Workshop, "I Wish I Was Kryptonian" which basically was imbuing a non-powered female character from animation or comics with the powers of Supergirl or Superman.
We had some very nice entries this time around which should make excellent additions to our library. Please help me congratulate all the participants on their entries:
|Lara Croft And The Torch of Rao||Geekseven|
|Tink, Tink, Boom! -- Part 1||Larafan|
|One Cold Night in Gotham...||Castor|
We'll be posting a poll in the next few days for everyone to vote on their favorites, but in the meantime, please check them all out and leave comments at the end of the story if you liked them!
While not what a lot of us would initially imagine physically as our ideal Girl of Steel (mainly due to the hair color), she seems to have that perfect blend of "beautiful face" combined with that "wholesome, every woman look" that CBS CEO Nina Tassler seemed to be looking for. And, if you watch clips of her performing on Glee and on the talk shows, she has this incredible likability factor that fits perfectly with the Supergirl that seem to be casting for. As an "added bonus", she seems to have some decent acting chops as well! :)
David Rappaport and his casting crew really deserve kudos for this one, IMO. And if their past successes -- especially with Glee alumni in superhero roles -- are any indication, they've hit another homerun with Melissa Benoist! Now, hopefully they won't screw up the costume with something like Melissa's first foray into the superheroine genre):
For those that might have not seen the postings on our forum, there is an exciting new force in our "girl power" community, Maiden Comics Studios. Maiden Comics Studios (MCS) has recently launched a new streaming channel called the Maiden Network which is also available as a channel on Roku. The Maiden Network focuses on female-led production content and their studio tagline is "Be Sexy. Be Strong." which is something that our audience can definitely understand (though I guess ours would be "Be Sexy, Be SUPERstrong" ;) ). We reached out to Patrick Desmarattes, the architect behind Maiden Comics Studios, and he was gracious enough to answer some questions about the Maiden Network.
SWM: Firstly, congratulations on the successful launch of the Maiden Network! Over at SWM, we've been waiting for a "girl power" channel like this to come along. Can you tell us how long you've been planning this and how you got the idea?
MCS: We've had the idea for the network for a little over a year now. Shortly after Inara, the Jungle Girl was completed we always dreamed about debuting it on a network that focused on female characters. With companies like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon leading the charge with familiarizing the masses with a streaming network it became feasible and seemed to be the right time.
SWM: You seem to wear many hats at Maiden -- writer, director, producer, etc. Can you give us a little background on your previous work and film experiences?
MCS: I've been filming for over 12 years but would honestly only say that I've completed two full length feature films. Its a work in progress and you get better each time around. But I have had the luxury of shooting on just about every camera and every type of lens in any type of setting that featured amazing female talents.
SWM: Maiden's tagline is "Be Strong. Be Sexy" which seems to be a mantra our audience understands! Is it a significant challenge to find programming content that matches your catch phrase?
MCS: I don't think so. If someone truly understands the meaning of the tagline. I'll post an excerpt from my personal facebook page that helps to clarify it:
Someone today brought up the question about our studios tagline "BE.SEXY.BE.STRONG" and when I answered I figured I should clarify for anyone else that was wondering.
In a day and time where for some reason cutting bodies in half, shooting people point blank in the head and blowing up the world on film seems to be ok, but a beautiful actress, confidently taking the place of a male actor in a lead role who isn't afraid/ashamed of her own beauty seems to be a big no no. There are a segment of people out there that believe that a woman being beautiful or a woman being proud of her own sexuality is bad. A woman who embarrasses her own sexuality is weak. I'm sorry, I don't subscribe to that theory. As a matter of fact I think the exact opposite.
News flash people, there is absolutely nothing wrong with a beautiful woman being beautiful. Because the fact of the matter is ALL women are beautiful. No matter how big or small you are no matter what height or race. EVERYONE has someone that thinks YOU... yes... YOU are absolutely GORGEOUS. And you shouldn't EVER be ashamed of that.
"BE.SEXY.BE.STRONG" is the motto of a true MAIDEN. A woman that FULLY grasps that she is beautiful, she isn't afraid to show it and guess what she can kick your a$$ and look amazing all at the same time. Be comfortable in your own skin just the way that you are. When you wake up in the morning don't let the status quo or the people in your life that have their own insecurities prevent you from knowing that your beautiful and honey if you want to throw on a sexy dress and go out on the town feeling sexy guess what? DO IT!!!
God made all of his children beautiful male and female. Don't let people with their own hangups make you feel uneasy about how beautiful YOU are.
You all have a MAIDEN deep inside of you. #UNLEASHYOURINNERGODDESS
With that said, being sexy isn't inversely correlated with your strength. The above post was in response to a critic that said that our female roles were "overly sexual" and didn't portray "strong women". As if to say being comfortable with your sexuality makes you weak. When you spell it out like that it's clear to see how little sense a critique like that could make.
SWM: So are your current plans to both produce your own original shows as well as syndicate or license third-party content to the viewers? If so, what kind of things is Maiden looking for (e.g. films, web series, scripts, actresses)?
MCS: Yes that is correct. We are looking for all things female led. Films, TV Series, Books, Comics. With it being a network there will be a variety of content genre and style. The idea is not to be close minded or cater to only a niche audience. We are primarily focusing on action adventure but there will be all kinds of content on the network.
SWM: Getting back to your productions, The Athena movie was very well produced. How long does it take to make such a quality movie and are you planning any followups to Athena soon?
MCS: Athena from start to finish took nearly two years but only because of some technical hurdles which involved getting up to speed on certain equipment and software that allowed us to achieve what we did. If our studio were to produce that same movie we could get it done in months today. As far as Athena goes we do in fact have plans for a sequel.
SWM: I see that Victoria Vesce, who plays Athena, is a former Miss Charlotte and an NBA Dancer. Is she planning on returning to future productions?
MCS: Actually she is a current NBA Dancer (when did we stop calling them cheerleaders? Cheerleaders sounds so much hotter...) and the reigning Miss Charlotte USA 2015 as she still wears the crown today. She wears a lot of hats. She is a true Maiden which is why she is our Maiden of the Year. But to answer your question she is an amazing person and actress and we will definitely be working with her again.
SWM: And the girl that plays Artemis in the movie near the end of the film. Is she the actress that will assume the mantle of Artemis in your upcoming series? Can you talk more about that production?
MCS: (laughs) You're casting all my films and shows out to 2016... :) we don't assume anyone is playing any role. We have an extensive casting process that we go through to choose who will be the right person for each role. As far as the Artemis project I wish I could say more but I can say that the series itself will closely follow the amazing comic book that is currently available on the Maiden Network.
SWM: what about other plans or original shows in production? You care to give us a brief idea of original projects in production?
MCS: I wish I could but then I'd have to take you out... and not like take you out to dinner like Kim Jung Un in the interview. I mean like REALLY take you out...
SWM: Fair enough! Moving along then, in addition to the live-action content, you also have content areas for comic books, including a lot of old Golden Age books. How many new creators of comics do you have lined up and are you looking for "girl power" comics to syndicate on your network?
MCS: Over the course of time we plan to feature tons of original comics produced by our studio and produced by other studios across the world.
SWM: OK, so doing a quick rundown of your lineup, I see content featuring vigilantes, mythological goddesses, jungle girls, vampires, and spies. Hmm, there seems to be a void in the superheroine category! Any chances we might see women flying around and saving the day on the Maiden Network soon?
This is something that I think our community has been looking for and, in my opinion, we should try and support their channel as much as possible to help it succeed and flourish which hopefully would mean more original content and programming for all of us. Finally, please note that we have established a dedicated forum for the Maiden Network where you can post comments and ask questions.
From our good friends over at Wicked City Girls comes an EXCLUSIVE sneak peek of their newest release, Silencer, set to be released on their site soon. This extended five minute clip is set to be on their YouTube channel shortly, but you can be the one of the first to see WCG's latest uber bad girl, Charlie, in action by button below (NOTE: Zip format; 250 MB):
SYNOPSIS: "Charlie is the world's most lethal assassin; offering her one-of-a-kind services to the highest bidder. When she receives superhuman abilities, Charlie's employers quickly realize that she can no longer be contained.
