Miss Alainia's Links

Believe it or not, The Duras Babes are into more than just filking!
Here are a few of our favorite links, designed to help you understand the weird and wacky world that surrounds The Duras Sisters!

(For filk links, click here.)

Science Fiction/Media

The Obligatory Delenn Link Delenn's World--a beautifully designed Norwegian web site.
The Ultimate Fan Fiction Directory A comprehensive listing of online fan fiction from all fandoms. Huge!
The Lurkers' Guide to Babylon 5 Not updated much since the show went off the air, but still the best reference guide to Babylon 5 episodes and background.
The John and Delenn Site The ultimate John and Delenn Schmaltz site. It is now combined with a John and Aeryn site (Farscape), but don't let that scare you off. Lots of pictures, media, and links.
Farscape Web Ring Oh, yeah. A growing ring for one of the coolest shows to hit Science Fiction in a long time. Lots of fan sites; some really well done.
The Obligatory Delenn Link, Part Deux When one Delenn site is not enough, there's "Mira Furlan & Goran Gajic--The Celebration." Run by Mira's Uberfan, Moyra Bligh, this site is well-organized, up-to-date, and overflowing with information.
Paramount's Star Trek Site What would a Duras Sisters' site be without a link to the show that started it all? Paramount's site, while pretty, can be difficult to navigate. It's heavy on graphics, so if you have a slow browser...
The Sherlock Holmes Museum This site offers a virtual tour of the museum at 221b Baker Street, copies of stories, links to purchase music from the television series, and a museum store. The Online Mystery Network. Includes reviews, interactive mysteries, and links to other mystery sites.

Arts, Literature, and the Occasional Social Science

Alien Wine Connoisseur Pat (The Button Guy) Conner's page--great articles by Pat and others who share his off-beat humor. Make sure you have some time when you visit--you can't just read one article!
A Celebration of Women An excellent resource listing women writers from around the globe. This is a huge site, so it may be slow loading.
US Humane Society The Duras Sisters love their furry friends.
On-Line Image Archive An enormous archive of free images. Again, slow loading but worth the effort.
Radiance Magazine Perhaps the best magazine ever published for women (and men) of size. Unlike Mode and other "fashion"-type magazine, Radiance doesn't think life ends at size 24!
Celestial Bodies Finally--an astrology page that doesn't require a PhD in physics! This page provides tools that are easy to use and easy to understand, allowing you to find your rising sign, moon sign, and understand what this means!
B.a.B.e. - Be Active, Be Emancipated The official web site for B.a.B.e., a Croatian woman's rights organization. Great cause; great site.
Online IQ & Personality Tests Ooooh, online test junkies, unite! This page is a gold-mine of IQ, personality, and relationship tests. Some are serious, others funny--all entertaining.
NAAFA Official site of the National Association for the Advancement of Fat Acceptance. This organization provides advocacy for size acceptance in health, job, government, and all areas of life.
Arizona Wiccan & Pagan Links A collection of Wiccan and Pagan links in and around the state of Arizona.
Things to Do in Phoenix (When You're Short on Cash!)

One of the premier collections of desert plant life in the United States. Official home page of Pam & Debbie's Rival Reading Reviews, as well as Book Exchange Plus.
Tarot By Dawn Home page for the Official Psychic of The Duras Sisters. Also the homepage for Earth Teachings.
Arizona Science Center Quite possibly the coolest place to spend the day in Phoenix. This multi-media facility houses the planetarium, an IMAX theater, and thousands of hands-on exhibits. Debbie's favorite birthday treat!
Phoenix Art Museum High-brow fun for young and old.
Arizona Museum for Youth Also known as "Larry's Museum," this interactive extravaganza mixes art and education in the most amusing way. Grown-ups have just as much fun (if not more) than the kids.
The Phoenix Zoo Animals, animals, animals. Need we say more?
Desert Botanical Garden

The Food, Man. The FOOD!

Web sites for some of the best restaurants in the Phoenix area.

Flo's This delightful Chinese restaurant in East Scottsdale is a welcome change to the heavy, "fill-up-on-starches" Chinese fare one expects. The lunch specials are reasonably priced and come with a salad instead of the dreaded dishwater egg drop soup!
Wildflower Bread Company Mmmmm...fresh baked bread, soups, salads, and the best carrot cake you could possibly desire. A little pricey, but worth it for a treat. Three locations in the Valley.
Orbit Cafe (map) Again, a little high when it comes to price. But Orbit features live blues nightly, extraordinary food, and excellent service. Here's a hint--make reservations.
Havana Patio Cafe (Map) Cuban food! The food here is wonderful, from the black bean fritters to the Cho-Cho. The lunch prices range from $4-12, with dinner being much higher. Great atmosphere.
