"One of the things that you argue about in a writing room… there’s the notion that you can never put your two leads together.  And if you put your two leads together, the romance dies.  Well, we put them together – we may have broken them up, but we put them together, and it’s fairly apparent in most of season four that they’re together – and I don’t think it hurts the show at all.  In fact, I think it makes the show more interesting."   - Ben Browder

Claudia Black extended this even so far as John and Aeryn’s initial meeting—the meeting that John lovingly refers to as “boy meets girl, girl kicks boy’s ass”—saying that the reason Aeryn reacts so violently to him is because it was actually love at first sight. The problem is, for Aeryn Sun, it could only be identified as a foreign emotion that resulted in confusion, so she believed her best course of action was to eliminate it… by eliminating the target responsible for eliciting the emotion.  ~ from ‘Farscape Told Science Fictions Greatest Love Story’ Tor.com

Ben Browder and Claudia Black, the original shippers of John and Aeryn.

The chemistry between the actors clinched it. You couldn’t keep them away from each other nor did you want them apart. This made for fascinating television and a wonderful love story.

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.

Ready? 

Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

Oh baby, all I need is one more chance. Won’t you please let me back in your heart. Oh darlin’, I was blind to let you go. But now since I see you in his arms.

John Crichton + tickles my pickle

#the thing i love so much about john crichton is that he is nominally the leading man #but rapidly undermines every macho romantic trope there is #he is the physically less capable to the trained sublime warrior that is aeryn sun #he’s considered an idiot barbarian by most species he encounters #he rapidly eschews and abandons almost every inhibition or notion of normality he has #which includes the trappings of macho-ness (which - interestingly - he only assumes #when he is impersonating a peacekeeper captain) #he’s emotionally raw and vulnerable and unstable - #in fact in some story arcs occupies the same kind of narrative role as women often get shunted into a la river song #the one with otherworldly power or knowledge or capacity that makes them terrifying and a target and often out of control of their own agenc #agency #and he swings wildly from being a figure of absolute ridiculousness or absurdity to terrifying violent lows #i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again #in any other show these people would be the villains #they are branded as fugitives and terrorists and it *gets* to them #they get compromised and make stupid cruel selfish choices oriented entirely around self-preservation and home #and family #and john crichton devolves entirely from his polished scientist-astronaut daredevil leading man #into something much more peculiar and subversive and viscerally thrilling #and he keeps his heart the whole way through

I like your analysis of John Crichton.
