Legend of the Seeker is a live action TV series based on Terry Goodkind's series of novels, The Sword of Truth. The series follows the adventures of Richard Cypher, Kahlan Amnell (and her glorious swishy hair: "WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSH." [1]), and Zeddicus Zu'l Zorander as they try to stop the evil Darken Rahl. They are joined on their quest by former Mord'Sith Cara in the second season.

The official website for the show is Legend of the Seeker and additional production information is available at Wikipedia.

The Fandom

(Need to add later: Fan reaction; comparison to the novels. Fanfic/piscpam/icons/etc.)

Richard/Kahlan is canon, and a popular het ship. The introduction of Cara as part of the main cast led to a rise in the amount of femslash in the fandom; Kahlan/Cara is a popular pairing. Probably the most notable slash pairing is Richard/Rahl.

At least some of LoTS writers are aware of the fandom. A picspam recap of episode 2.13 by deej received a comment from (someone claiming to be?) the writer of the episode in question:

As the guy who wrote this episode, I gotta tell you, you made my -- week? Millennium? Geological epoch? I have this terrible fear that I am going to start writing things JUST SO THAT I CAN SEE HOW YOU RECAP THEM.

I joined livejournal just so I could tell you this.

With love from Los Angeles,
