Ghostbusters is a reboot live-action film based off of the Ghostbusters franchise, starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones as four women who start a ghost-catching business in New York City.


Main Characters

Several of the original Ghostbusters actors and actresses returned for special cameos throughout the film: Bill Murray as Martin Heiss (paranormal debunker), Dan Aykroyd as a taxi driver, Ernie Hudson as Bill Jenkins (Patty's uncle), Sigourney Weaver as Rebecca Gorin (Holtzmann's mentor), and Annie Potts as Vanessa (a hotel desk clerk).



Femslash dominates the fandom although there are gen works,[1] however het is fairly rare—only a handful of fics were created focused on Erin/Kevin[2] or the threesome Erin/Kevin/Jillian.[3] The juggernaut pairing of the fandom is Jillian Holtzmann/Erin Gilbert by far. The other main femslash pairings include Holtzmann/Tolan, Holtzmann/Yates, Yates/Gilbert, and Holtzmann/Rebecca.
