Panel Ballot

Which suggested panels are you interested in attending and/or moderating? Open and close each section with the little up- and down-arrow symbols, and vote your hearts out. Be sure to click “Submit" at the bottom of the page, or your votes won't be recorded.

You can revise your entries until the ballot deadline: January 15, midnight PST.

Check out the "Write In Panel Suggestion" tab. It's one more chance to submit that phenomenal idea you just thought of.

You're the Panel Moderators, at Escapade. It's fun! Trust us, yourselves, and trust the concept of each panel needing at least two moderators. Also? Panels without moderators won't be scheduled. So click "Willing to Lead" to improve the chances panels that excite you will make the cut--even if one panelist is already listed.

NOTE about SUGGESTED MODERATORS. Someone may have "volunteered" you as a potentially great moderator. Don't worry; they can't make you do it (and we won't try). Be thrilled, instead, and consider accepting both their compliment and the invitation, by clicking "Willing to Lead".

Wonder Woman: The Super Hero We Deserve Fandom Specific Come to discuss what you liked (and didn’t) about this beautiful but imperfect film, and about what it may make possible for Captain Marvel, or other female-led (and female directed?) super hero movies.
It Was (Over) 50 Years Ago Today: McLennon Slash Fandom Specific July 7, 1957 John Lennon and Paul McCartney met at a village fete and fell in… love? Lust? Deep and abiding, intensely conflicted, but strictly platonic mutual admiration? Let’s discuss the John/Paul relationship that continues to captivate the minds of fanfic authors to this day!
Mod: Absolutely want to!
Red Sparrow: The Black Widow Movie We Wanted? Fandom Specific Red Sparrow is a new movie premiering on March 2 based on the book by the same name. Everything about it reads like a Black Widow/Red Room story with the serial numbers filed off. Let’s talk about what we know – and what it could mean for fandom.
The Heterosexualization of American Television General/Meta You’ve all been there before. A new show premiers and the pitter-patter of your heart tells you you have found the One True (Slash) Pairing.

But The Change creeps in and before you know it, it’s yet another straight pairing…or a beard. This has happened time and again, everything from Smallville to Person of Interest.

Why does this happen? Is there any advantage to The Powers That Be to showrun a series as being gay-friendly? Then why transform it to Leave It To Beaver Country?
Mod: Absolutely want to! Suggested Mod: Brenda Atrim
