Thanks to everyone for reading - feel free to leave comments in the review section - always good for an author to hear from the readers, even if it's to correct an error!
Anyone interested in the video game "Destiny" should check out my granddaughter's fanfic for that genre: By Choice, Not Chance series under her
DOH fanfic Update: 11/20/20
Part One: Once in a Blue Moon is complete (60 chapters)
Part Two: Long, Long Journey is complete (Chapter 61 - 82)
Part Three: Tangled Webs (conclusion of story) is in progress - only a couple of chapters and Epilogue left to write... I AM WORKING ON IT, I PROMISE!
Special thanks to WENN9366 for the support, encouragement, and, most of all, inspiration!! Reading Halls of Stone and Iron and now, The Story of Us, gave me the push I needed to post the DOH (Enos centric) story I had been working on for a long time. She both inspired and challenged me to take chances and go beyond my comfort zone. Be sure to check out her new DOH story, Evergreen. It's a great story and promises to get even more interesting.
Thanks, also, to my younger son for reading Secrets... and providing great feedback and more inspiration for Part Two!! And to my granddaughter who is a great sounding board.

Star Trek fanfic Update: 11/20/20 - Delayed - The Sacred Q'e - rescheduled for new chapters after the first of the year.
Additional chapters to The Sacred Q'e of Q'a'ta'Orbin (Magnificent Obsession Series: 4) will be posted when I can get enough done on my DOH fanfic - the rest of the ST story has enough complexity and complication that I need to take the appropriate time to polish it.
A special thanks to Samuel G. Pengraff (pen name) for contributing not only the third chapter to The Sacred Q'e of Q'a'ta'Orbin (it was originally a Round Robin offering), but for providing the direction and I would eventually take the rest of the story beginning with Chapter Four. Note that if you read the original story on Ad Astra, it was posted as Caledonia. Since then, the first two chapters have been completely revamped and the title was changed. Sam's chapter three remains intact as he wrote it (with the exception of only a few minor references to day-countdown that are no longer relevant).
Magnificent Obsession Series: The Sacred Q'e of Q'a'ta'Orbin (new chapters will be added) is the main story - the following is backstory or epilogue in reading/chronological order)
0. The Trinket box 2274-75 backstory - (complete)
1. Double Entendre - 2275 backstory (complete)
2. The Vow - 2284 backstory (complete)
2a. Paradise Lost - 2285-2286 backstory (complete)
3. All the Great Voyagers Return - 2286 backstory (complete)
3a. One Christmas in Vacherie - 2290 side story - (complete)
4. The Sacred Q'e of Q'a'ta'Orbin - 2291 main story - work in progress (my Time Machine was on the fritz for a while, but I think it might be fixed now, so Chapter 10 has been completed, stay tuned for more soon)
4a. Touched(complete) - think of this as a kind-of teaser to The Sacred Q'e.
4b. Remember - 2291 (possible future epilogue - pending completion of The Sacred Q'e)
4c. Guess Who's Coming to Dinner - 2293 (possible future epilogue - pending completion of The Sacred Q'e)

A few additional short backstories may be added as necessary to the flow of The Sacred Q'e
About me: I am an artist (watercolor and wall art), fledgling writer, crafter (I like to re-purpose useless stuff), and most recently - faerie gardener. I used to be a forensic accountant adjuster but recently said goodbye to that part of my life in favor of full-time writing - I am still rarely away from my computer but have a lot more fun at it now!!
Underdeveloped, sometimes misunderstood, characters are my favorite subject so I thought I would tackle Enos for my Dukes of Hazzard fanfic. And I have always thought Star Trek TOS Christine Chapel's character was given the short end of the stick.
I welcome constructive criticism and look forward to improving my writing skills (to apply to my original fiction) through fanfic. I am currently getting back to fanfic after a pretty long hiatus, no I mean like nine years!). When I write for Star Trek, it is usually short and allusory, so the approach on Secrets, Bittersweet Memories and Dolly Parton Goodbyes is a bit of a departure for me in both length and style. Although my current Star Trek story, The Sacred Q'e of Q'a'ta'Orbin, will end up being lengthy.
I love Star Trek (an original Trekkie) and usually write fanfic for TOS (for non-Trekkies, that's The Original Series) but also love the alternate new universe in recent movies as well. I can hardly wait for the new season of Star Trek: Discovery (Oct 15 YAY!) and the next season of Picard.
Favorite Authors: Ayn Rand (everything, even the non-fiction philosophy), J.K. Rolling (even the darker stuff), Emily Dickinson, Jane Austin (but who doesn't), Orson Scott Card, Joy Ellis, Connie Willis, Rick Yancey, Kate Morton, John Scalzi... the list goes on and on.
