Summer Glau : A to Z of AwesomeSummer Glau is my favorite actress and maybe yours too. While i have always been addicted to movies and series, there is no other celebrity in the world who has had more of an impact on my life.

Terminator : The Sarah Connor Chronicles is my favorite tv show and where i saw Summer Glau for the first time and then wanted to know more of her work. Because of this show, i started to get involved in online discussion forums and eventually participated with you in the great adventure of developping this fansite. Beyond the way everyone first become a fan of Summer or our personal journey, our appreciation of Summer Glau is the reason why we gather with fans from all over the world at the Summer Glau Wiki.

Summer Glau has been in Hollywood for more than 10 years now and while she has yet many roles awaiting for her, i thought it would be a great Christmas gift to devote attention to her professional career.
To confirm our love of Summer Glau, and to explain all the reasons you should love her too (if you don’t already), we invite members of the fandom to compil with us a list, A-Z, of Summer’s awesome qualities and contributions to the world. The list will contain (almost) everything you need to know about this great TV and Movie actress, and it’s worth a read just to see how we tackled the more difficult letters without cheating at all.

The Summer Glau Wiki strongly encourage fans to get involved in the life of the site; while Alex and i have started to list the topics that should be included on the list, we need your help to fill in the blanks or to add more suggestions to existing ones. Once we have selected together the topics for each letter, we will ask fans to volunteer to write the commentary for each topic.



A Awesome, Alphas
B Badass, ballerina, Baum
C Cameron, cowgirl, cute
D Dangerous, dancing
E Enigma, Elf
F Firefly, family, fandom
G Glau, gorgeous
H Halverson, hot
I Intelligent
J Jameron
K Knights of Badassdom
L
M Miranda, machine
N North pole
O Orwell
P Philips, parents
Q
R River
S Supergirl by @karazorel, Skynet, Serenity
T Terminator, Tam
U Unusual,
V
W Witch ( in The Initiation of Sarah)
X
Y
Z Zoe

I can't wait to hear your suggestions!

You don't have to be a member of the Summer Glau Wiki in order to participate btw, you can leave a suggestions on Twitter (to @chrisdvanne or to @Summerglauwiki), on Facebook or on the fansites who wish to relay this project.

Side note : selected topics are in red

Thanks for the suggestions, Martin smile

I had in mind to ask our friend Danny at Supergirl fansite karazor-el.com/ to tackle the letter "S"; speaking of Serenity would be great too but nothing prevent us from having two topics for the same letter.

Edit: Family, parents... We all know how important family is for her

We will try to avoid having 90% of the letters related only to TSCC and Firefly; while these suggestions should have a large part, they must not smothered other aspects of Summer's career imo.

We will try to connect the suggestions to Summer's work or qualities; in this regard, words like intelligent, beautiful and the like may not be specific enough.

That said, we could make an exception for difficult letters like "X"; the talented @MichaelLKeller1, who also inspired the caption for the 'Help for the Holidays' movie poster at IMDb, suggested :

Quote
Xanadu is a mythical place of idyllic beauty. I always believed Summer came from there.

I think it's a good startpoint but i'm afraid that writing this commentary will require a talented writer, not many of us can do it.

That's a good one. The commentary can be nurtured with photos at conventions and quotes from Summer Glau's interview

Danny agreed to tackle the letter 'S', it means Supergirl is a keeper i guess biggrin

It's good idea the A to Z !

D for Dancing is unavoidable i think.

For try not to be focused on TSCC or Firefly, I would say :

L = Lindsey Ross Forrest (Deadly Honeymoon)

wink

Thanks for all the suggestions, i didn't expect to have such an echo so quickly. I will put your suggestions in front of the letters in the first post in order to have a synthetic view and allow a reflexion on the final choices for each letters.

Don't forget that the goal is to write a commentary based on these words; just a few words of explanation on the commentary itself : 2 or 3 witty and spiritual paragraphs (don't ask for my help, i have no talent), we don't want to copy/paste Wikipedia tongue
References, links are welcome; we will add 1 or 2 pics (you can suggest them if you like).

It would be awesome is a maximum of fans participate to this project by writing a commentary; if you're in the mood, you can write several of course. Non English native members are also invited to participate; Alex can review your draft if you like and help you find the best possible formulation, like he did for the interviews and articles we published together.

Commentaries submissions can be made here or anywhere online.

W-Whedon

Here is my opinion of what I would choose:
A. Angel - her first role on TV.
B. Ballet or Ballerina - If we're talking about Summer, we must start with ballet.
C. Cameron - one of her most important characters
D. Dancing - same as ballet.
E. Elf
F. Firefly - that's obvious
G. Glau(wesome)
H. Holiday - She said that Christmas means so much to her and her family + help for the Holidays ...
I. Intelligent - She is smart.
J. Jameron - My favorite OTP :-)
K. Knights of badassdom
L. Legend of hells gate - Western was her dream.
M. Machine - She was convincing machine... And most beautiful :-)
N. North Pole - Christmas elf :-)
O. Orwell - The Cape, She was the best thing in this show
P. Parents - her parents and sisters mean everything to her...
Q. Queen - of beauty and sci-fi:-)
R. River - no comment :-)
S. Supergirl
T. Texas - Texas girl
U. Unique
V. Voice (of Supergirl)
W. Whedon - her fateful director
X. X-mas
Y.
Z. Zoe

But this is just my opinion and there are many other things that could be there wink Family. Fans (fandom)...
