So, what do you love about the Culture series? What's your favourite novel, who are your favourite characters, what makes this series special for you? What would your crazy ship name be, if you were a Culture ship?

Does the Culture have enough fans to sustain a DW community? We'll see!

I like how the Culture is fundamentally an optimistic view of the future - somehow humanity has got its shit together enough to not fuck everything up, and in fact most Culture citizens have a pretty good life. And I like Banks' politics coming through in the stories, and I like the snarky AIs, and the big explosions, and the stories that always have someone you can relate to even through the scale of the story may be huge.

I haven't tried my hand at writing fic in many, many moons, but I just read "First Steps" and it's fantastic, and there is so much in the Culture that wants exploring, and there are no hands to do it now but ours.

So yes, I will plant myself here and talk and squee and beta and support others in their love of this series and this 'verse.

Thank you, Bagheera.

I'd love to read fic that explores in more detail why the Minds are so attached to human-types -- whether that attachment is because we are in some way their pseudo-parents, or because we have characteristics that in some way balance their comprehensive and very fast thought.

I'd love to write fic that explores what it means for human-types and Minds to love and form families together -- the scene from "First Steps" with the meditation on how "meeting the family" is different for humans and Ships is a great jumping-off point, for example. What would it be like to follow a family/clan/tribe of humans and Minds on their adventures throughout the Culture? Think of the Vorkosigan Saga with really snarky Ships.
