eruthros: Delenn from Babylon 5 with a startled expression and the text "omg!" (Probe Austin proto-Mulder)

So! I read this essay like ten years ago, which postulated that there were "green" and "blue" fandoms. So, like, in the X-Files, the "magic" is all coded green (alien blood, hybrids, blahblah, etc). But Farscape is a blue fandom (Maya, Zhaan, Pilot). And so is Stargate (the Stargate, the Asgard, magic gun things, whatever). And that, even if the plots are compatible, green and blue code different ideas about the magic/weird, so that it's actually harder to do an X-Files/Farscape crossover than the plot would indicate and easier to do a Farscape/Stargate crossover than the plot would indicate.

And I told [livejournal.com profile] graycastle about it, and she wants to read it. Only it's totally ungoogleable -- I can't remember what fandoms were discussed, so I can't even do that. And searching for things like "green blue x-files crossover" turn up bazillions of results.

So! Obi-wan flist! Who wrote this? Where was it? Can you remember a context or a mailing list or an additional keyword or something?

This doesn't sound familiar--I have no idea where you'd find it--but now I'm interested in reading it, too!

"come on! somebody! say you've at least heard of it, even if you don't know where it is! Because I'm starting to wonder if I made it all up!"

I'm pretty sure you didn't make it up - I don't think I've actually seen the thing itself, but I've heard it mentioned before. Hopefully someone will know where to find it!

That was [livejournal.com profile] mecurtin's idea, I believe; I don't have a link to that post, but I bet she does.
