Lookie, lookie what I found.

A Zhaan/Stark vid.

OMG.



Now, I adore John/Aeryn with an unholy adoration but Zhaan/Stark is probably my favorite secondary ship ever.

How could I not? A former anarchist-assassin priestess who is also a wise earth mother and supremely sensual being and over the edge of insanity and tortured by Scorpius for years, former Bannik slave who helps the dying over to the next world? Who just work together perfectly? And it ends tragically?

So so SO sold.

Plus,Paul Goddard's voice makes me so weak in the knees I have no legs left.

It's funny because everyone loves Zhaan (how could you not?) but Stark is such a polarizing character. I confess to loving him. He is off the edge and off-kilter, but it makes perfect sense: even on Farscape, Stark wins the 'suckiest life' award. I mean, he was in Aurora Chair dozens of times and we saw what it made of Crichton in a not nearly as many spins. And yet he still has compassion. And he is surprisingly together until he gets dispersed. And then he is much more off-kilter, and when he feels 10,000 of his people dying, killed by Scorpius, it doesn't help.

Whenever he gets any stability (as with Zhaan. He is quite normal with her) it gets yanked away. OMG, the bit in S&L when she basically tells him there is nothing he can do about her dying and just help her cross over and says he is an expert on dying, and he replies 'I am an expert on dying. I am just not an expert on you dying.' Ohhhhhh...

And I still think that in a lot of ways, Zhaan/Stark is a mirror of John/Aeryn. With the woman the crazy guy's source of stability. Stark goes catatonic-mumbly when Zhaan dies which is a John thing to do. He sort of displaces onto Aeryn because Zhaan died for her. He goes looking for Zhaan even though she is dead. These are all a John thing to do. Only he doesn't have the happiness of having Zhaan back. In some ways, Stark is John, complete with a dark streak (the way he leaves Grunchlick frozen is rough justice but it's very dark) and passionate hate of use of helpless and hopeless love. Only years later and messed up a lot lot lot more.

I love that he gets peace at the end of PKW. One of my favorite things is that he is finally free of all the horror. And I am an optimist. Maybe one day he will find Zhaan again. It's Farscape, anything can happen.

I need a Z/S icon.

OMG.

This is one of my all time favorite scenes, from S3 opener 'Season of Death'

OMG.

Finally, they both say they love each other (and they say it, and the other person is not insane or dead or unconscious) and there is kissing which means something and oh GUUUUH.

It literally brings them to their knees.



My very fave scene is from that same ep, when John sees Aeryn again for the first time. It makes me swoon and cry and shriek. But I can't find it on youtube.

A couple more vids )
