Slashcon Poll

I'm putting together the program for slashcon and I need some feedback. Below is a poll with the panel ideas I've brainstormed. If you're coming to Slashcon, please vote for your favourites (or suggest new topics in comments).

Poll #1198522 Slashcon Panels

Which of these panel topics most interests you? (pick all that apply)

Slashdom does comics (or does it?): X-Men, Tony Stark, Clark and Lex, Spiderman, yaoi
0(0.0%)
Why do action heroes/heroines need a sidekick? Who are your favourites?
0(0.0%)
How much meta do you like with your slash? Reconsidering recent controversies
0(0.0%)
How will gay equality affect slash (gay marriage, abolition of DADT)?
0(0.0%)
All about the girls (and other non-male genders): the rise of femmeslash, trans fiction and genderfuck
0(0.0%)
Original slash: what's it like; where do you find it; is it good?
0(0.0%)
The best of the rest: what's been happening in gen and het fiction lately? Recs, trends, the hot fandoms.
0(0.0%)
Romance: is there such a thing as a good romance? Does slash count? How is it different/similar?
2(8.0%)
Other (and I'll tell you about it in comments)
0(0.0%)


In addition to whatever is most popular, we will probably have:

Workshop: Vidding (Jenny)
Workshop: Art or Writing (Elaine)
Workshop: Podcasting (Hope)
Workshop: Writing (Cathy)

Reading circle (bring your favourite slash stories, or your own slash stories to read aloud).
Songvid circle (bring your favourite slashy songvids to share).

Discussion: Share your shiny new and rare fandoms, or just your latest hot button.
Discussion: Does openly gay canon stop slash? (You are welcome to bring along examples to support your argument: Queer as Folk, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Babylon 5, Buffy)

Reading: extract from Elaine's upcoming novel.
Topic: An introduction to fandom wikis (Hope).
Topic: OTW (Cathy and Hope).

If you have any other thoughts, please let me know, especially if you're one of the people I've dobbed it for a workshop or panel. :)
