Throwback Thursday to Brody and Carrie Reunion at Variety’s Actors on Actors

“Danesy!!”

With that the Variety Actors On Actors segment featuring Damian Lewis and Claire Danes begins. She’s locked down in her New York apartment while he is roaming the English countryside in search of a signal. Thank God he found it! For the ensuing 34.05 minutes (with commercials ๐Ÿ™ย  ugh) we are transported back to CarrieBrodyland.

Homeland meets Billions: “Somebody That I Used to Know”

Damianista’s note: This fan fiction was originally written and published inย  2017.

A lot of time has passed since the Brody era of Homeland graced our screens. October 2011, to be exact, was when the series first started. Every now and then we still run into folks on Twitter discovering those first few seasons for the first time. Homeland does have this “eternal” thing going for it, themes that transcend time and space, maybe. Which is crazy seeing as how it’s so driven by the news and politics of the day. Maybe even for current events, the idea of we’ve been here before and we’ll be here again still applies? Whatever the case, the show begs revisiting and will be written in whatever books they keep about these things as one of the best shows in television history. I still watch despite the fact there’s no Brody, mostly because I loved Carrie a good bit more than I loved Brody. I know that doesn’t apply to a lot of the readers (or writers!) of this blog. Alas, here we are.

Carrie’s back in DC in Homeland Season 7, so little to no chance of her meeting up with Bobby. But that’s exactly what I couldn’t help but imagine during the year she spent in NYC.ย What better time than now to revisit a wee bit of fantasy where Carrie meets Bobby Axelrod at a coffee shop in Manhattan.

Fan Fiction Friday: Cast Yourself in Billions!

Damianista’s note: We collectively wrote this fan fiction before Billions Season 3 premiered on Showtime in 2018. Bobby has been indicted, separated from his wife and has moved Axe Capital HQ to Manhattan. And we imagined what would be in store for Bobby with a fun twist: We cast ourselves as characters in his world.

ENJOY!

Misfit’s Revisit to Homeland (and to a certain, unfinished fanfiction)

source: Showtime

Hi FanFun folks! Misfit here. For those who don’t know me,ย I was a contributor on this site for a brief amount of time, quite some time ago.

Misfit’s FFWDL Origin Story

What helped me cross paths with the amazing founders of this fan page was fan fiction, particularly a Homeland fic I started up in 2013 titled Suddenly.

The story started as my love letter to all things Carrie f*cking Mathison, and my wanting to explore an alternate, less bleak and lonely future for my leading lady fave where her brilliant, badass self could still shine through.
