Jo and Blair Big Day by mandygirl78 Jo and Blair Big Day by mandygirl78
:iconsailorptah: Sailorptah's version can be linked [link]

The state of New York recently approved same-sex marriage. For any fans of the great 80s sitcom 'The Facts of Life' out there, you know that Jo and Blair lives in New York. And for any fans of Jo/Blair femslash, there's nothing more that they love to see than to see Jo and Blair get married (Okay, maybe they would love to see THEM marrying either Jo or Blair, but moving on...)

This is how I envision they would look like, thanks to :iconsailorptah: with her amazing artwork. I don't see Jo wearing a tux or anything masculine, even though she was rather butchy in the beginning, but I don't really see her in a dress either, unlike the time she married Rick on the show.
There are no grooms, just two brides.

So I hope any Jo/Blair fans would like this, and I hope to see MORE Jo/Blair fanart. I will have a few more commissioned as well.

Next will be Cindy/Sue Ann, a pair I wish they developed more on season one. That will be difficult.

So, have you done Cindy and Sue Ann?:) (Smile) 

Funny how, with the introduction of Jo, the basic plot of THE FACTS OF LIFE became Blair's fixation on monopolizing the attention of J.:D (Big Grin)

:iconnathanleejames: did a rough drawing of them. Facts of Life 2 Rough Sample by mandygirl78   But I wasn't satisfied with how Cindy was drawn, so I told him to redo it.    

Yeah, that was the interesting part. She wanted to get Jo's attention a lot!

I just watched an episode last night... the first episode of Facts I've watched in probably twenty years... where Jo and Blair were after the same guy. Kinda.
Ironically, growing up, Jo and Blair were the ones I had a crush on. I think Jo gave me my thing for tomboyish bad girls.

Cool. Well it was Blair that made my heart beat. Lisa Whelchel was my second crush, after Lynda Carter of Wonder Woman.

They would. That's why they're so many femslash stories about them.

Thank sailorptah! It's my tribute to a show I grew up watching (and crushing for Lisa Whelchel...) and also the victory in New York.

you're welcome :)

I believe I saw some episodes of it, it's a crossover of "Diff'rent Strokes"?

A spin-off is more like it.

Yeah. Mrs. Garrett was the housekeeper for the Drummond family in the first season. She was so popular that they decided to build a show around her and Kimberly. It was on one of the episodes of Diff'rent Strokes.

Dana Plato (Kimberly) decided not to be a part of the show and instead it was based around Charlotte Rae (Mrs. Garrett). Lasted nine seasons, longer than Diff'rent Strokes, and make a lot of us gay girls happy when it was on :D

Damn boy, you're fast! I was about to send you a note!

Anyhow, you kinda get how I want them to be dressed. I did like the example you sent me earlier, except that I want them to be closer to each other when them embrace.

I just happened to be on.

I'm on my toddler break. Yay for Toy Story!

It's a great piece, though, and I can certainly see it now!
