Welcome to hidden_elysium, a community for Helo (Karl Agathon*) and Boomer (Sharon Valerii*) and home of Elysians! This is the place where we all get to come together and talk about our favorite human/cylon couple, whether it be romance or friendship or any shades in between.
* Battlestar Wikipedia profiles contain S2 spoilers.
hidden_elysium is also very honoured to host the Great Helo/Boomer Moments Collection compiled by repr0b8. The collection is divided into sixty five parts (all of which can be found here), and is composed of every important Helo or Boomer related scene spanning the miniseries, season one and two. The scenes are available in either .avi and .wmv format. Also included is a short list of scene captures. Please direct all questions concerning this resource to repr0b8.
What is Elysium?
In Greek mythology, Elysium (for those budding classicists, Elysium is a Latin adoption of the Greek word Elysian – yes, as in the Elysian Fields) was a section of the Underworld – a heavenly place (peaceful and beautiful) where those favoured by the gods rested in the afterlife. The second, "modern" definition of Elysium is a place or condition of ideal happiness.
What are Elysians?
Elysians are Helo/Boomer enthusiasts. Hidden Elysium members voted on a pairing name and the term "Elysians" won. hidden_elysium is the LJ home of Helo/Boomer and, therefore, Elysians.
Mod: shadowserenity (email: ladyserenity_moon @ hotmail. com). If you have questions, I'll have answers. If you violate rules, I'll have the consequences. It's honestly as simple as that.
Rules (a few and all simple):
· No rants or flaming others. Be respectful. Can't we just all get along?
· Discussion posts longer than 15 lines must go under the now infamous lj cut.
· Episode discussion is lovely and encouraged.
· All spoilers should be clearly labelled and placed under an lj cut.
· You may post spoilers and speculation that isn't Helo or Boomer related.
· Do not post someone else's work and then claim it as your own. That goes for both fanfiction and fan art/multimedia.
· They must be on topic. Meaning, they've all got to feature, at least, Boomer or Helo.
· Character pieces aren't just fun for everyone, they go here too (just Helo and Boomer by themselves).
· Fics of other characters and pairings that don't involve Boomer or Helo don't belong here, sadly enough.
· Other Helo or Boomer pairings (i.e. Apollo/Sharon, Helo/Starbuck, Tyrol/Sharon, Six/Helo) are welcome.
· Fanfics should be under lj cuts. That goes for drabbles, too.
· All fanfics should have: title, author, rating, spoilers/timeline, a disclaimer, a summary.
· Run your fiction through a spellchecker before posting.
· Helo/Boomer art is coveted and welcome.
· Just Helo or just Boomer is fine, as well.
· Anything else, not *so* much.
· Any kind of fan art is fine (wallpapers, mood themes, whatever).
· And that said fanart? Should go under an LJ cut. If they're icons, two or three teasers are fine.
· Specify whether users are permitted to "adopt" your artwork. Posting guidelines (i.e. whether you want people to comment and claim or give specific credit to you) is advisable.
