1st-Mar-2011 12:01 am - Threshold's impending ZOMBIE crisis
Seriously
I just watched all 13 episodes of CBS's Threshold.

Towards the end, one of the alien hybrids said that this was not an invasion, this was the aliens trying to save the humans from some upcoming radiation event, and that more and more infectee think of themselves as Improved.

Well, they are stronger and healthier, but with their metabolism, they also eat A LOT.

How much of humanity can convert before we run out of food?

Now, considering that this infection is sexually transmittable, and that those infected are driven by a desire to infect...if we sail out to the darker depths of the Sliding Scale we could get something out of the Crossed, gangs of violent infectee who rapes to spread the infection and might start resorting to cannibalism when there is more of them then there is protein to supply them.


Srsly though, if the Crossed doesn't happen, Running Out Of Food should be a serious concern for humanity, and the alien hybrids. Right now, parents who use formulas in Hong Kong have to deal with skyrocketing prices, or even No Supply at all, because runners from Mainland have cleaned out the stores (due to the melamine scare). That, on a larger scale, as the number of infectee increase, I think the price of foods high in protein will increase, and then gradually becomes scarce...even if they don't run out at the source, they are going to start being consumed at the market faster than they can be reshelved.


IRL, I know we've had disaster after disaster, but I remember being so relived when Food Security was finally raised back in 2009...but now it seem to be dropped again, by the administration, and the public*, but well, I suppose we'll pay attention again when the chocolate runs out!

*public: just as I think a significant amount of alien invasion flicks (separate from alien encounter flicks like Star Trek and E.T.) is a manifestation of xenophobia, I think the wave of zombie flicks a while back was everyone worrying about famine and chaos, Donner Party on a large scale.

ETA: ...and speaking of sexually transmittable, okay, I ship Sean/Molly like the fucking Enterprise, their sexual tension is awesome, and I think I remember Sean /looking/ at Molly from the beginning, BUT, how much of that have been affected by the signal?

People who have been affected by the signal are connected.

Plus, Alien Babies are special (thus explaining why Sean is drawn to Molly a lot, but Lucas relatively less?)

Even minus sinister alien ploy, within their attraction to each other, if partial infectees like Sean and Molly have a baby together, will that baby be human?


ETA2: Also, Considering that really early on, they found out that the pilot wasn't infected because he was wearing headphones (♪ and I totally saw that coming! ♫)....WHY aren't the red team equipped with headphones? And on the subject of communication tech, you guys you guys, if you are going into remote areas, you should frequently frequently check if your cellphone still has signal!

ladiesbigbang: queen latifah.
Below are all the fics [with one forthcoming] produced for the ficathon. Please go forth, read, feedback (especially because we're a small fandom, it's unlikely too many people from our flists will be reading, so I really encourage you to feedback your fellow ficathon participants).

The [ Threshold Fandom Masterlist ] has been updated and should reflect all new content.

Thanks so much to everyone who participated! ♥ I'd say for a small fandom we produced a pretty awesome turnout, so give yourselves a pat on the back.

[ Threshold Ficathon: Sign-ups ]

Here is the schedule for the ficathon:

January 24 to January 31: Sign-ups open
January 31: Assignments sent out
February 25: Stories due

[ How does it work? ]

+ This is a matching-based ficathon, which means you will be assigned someone to write for and someone will be assigned to write for you. (IE: You will write a fic and receive a fic.)

+ Stories will be due February 25th. You can post them directly to this community, to your personal journal, your website, etc. I will make an index of all stories at the end. You don't have to have a LJ to participate, but you do need to be able to post your fic somewhere online.

+ The stories will need to be a minimum of 100 words. (I made an executive decision to lower it from the previous word count in case anyone has an easier time writing shorter fic.) No maximum.

Today, we'll be watching the following episode:

13: Alienville.

Molly and Cavennaugh go to a town called Allenville in search of a doctor who they think is infected and find more than they were looking for. Meanwhile, the situation at Threshold becomes heated with the pregnancy of the infected woman coming to an end.

Thanks to everyone who's watched along! Hope you all had fun.
