Talk:BOTW (Babe of the Week)

In my experience in Supernatural fandom, the prevalent term seems to be Chick of the Week, or CotW. Is that used in other fandoms as well? -- Sashadavidovna October 1, 2008 20:28 CST

I've never heard that usage in my fandoms (mostly the Jossverse). --Ari 01:40, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
I went ahead and added the definition of 'Chick of the Week' to this one, since it's essentially the same thing. --rache 16:49, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Boyfriend of the week?

Does anyone know (and/or can cite) if this phrasing is used to refer to one-shot male love interests (for female characters)? My feeling is that it sometimes is/could be, but my fanspeak tends towards the idiosyncratic. --Ari 01:40, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

We used 'Babe of the Week' for that, as a 'babe' could be either male or female, but go ahead and add boyfriend if you'd like. We are getting a long string of possible translations, but it's all the situation and practice. --rache 16:49, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
I was mostly just wondering whether there was an inherent gendered meaning in the term. -- I've never heard the specific phrasing "boyfriend of the week" either. I will go ahead and gender-inclusify the article.--Ari 17:04, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Star Trek pairings

I had an impression that the most popular pairing involving one-shot female characters in Star Trek TOS was Spock/Romulan Commander, not M!Kirk/M!Marlena or McCoy/Natira...--Todosnuestrosayeres 07:24, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
