Author has written 9 stories for StarTrek: The Original Series, Star Trek: 2009, A-Team, Buck Rogers, and Lone Ranger.
Now, more than ever before, idealism is often treated as something only the incredibly naive aspire to. Today, people claim to want 'realism', yet we keep seeing more and more remakes from a bygone era. Ideals are not meant to be realistic - the very definition sets them as a nearly unobtainable goal. The highest conceivable achievement. The stars you reach for, even when you know you cannot touch them, because the one step closer that is taken by each generation brings mankind as a whole closer. Until one day what was once an ideal is commonplace, and newer, loftier ideals are sought.
Perhaps it is only a sign of age, but I often find myself dissatisfied with modern tales and keep turning to the stories of old. There are quite a few that I adore, but Star Trek: The Original Series is by far my favorite. Whatever shortcomings ST:TOS might have can be forgiven, because there is so much hope and love and humor. This is the story of a humanity that grows up instead of blows up. This is the story of the kind of friendship most of us can only dream of.
They just don't make stories like that any more.
And so it is that my Muse feels compelled to write fan fiction, in an effort to breathe new life into aging playgrounds. I like action-packed, non-romance, angst-free friendship tales of heroism and idealism with hefty dollops of humor. I have a special fondness for hurt/care. I hope you enjoy reading my scrawlings as much as I enjoyed writing them.
About 'Works in Progress' and reviews: It is a very good idea to publish a story only after it is complete. However, I have come to view fan fiction as being much like the television series upon which it is often based. A television series is not like a novel or a movie. You must wait for each episode, and if there is a lack of a sufficient fan base the series is considered a failure and cancelled. Sometimes they just stop, for a variety of reasons, without ever having a conclusion. It is very nice to discover and watch a series in it entirety after it is complete, but think of all your favorite shows that might have continued if only enough people had spoken in favor of them. If you are enjoying someone's work in progress, take a moment of your time to say so. This may well determine whether or not it continues.
About Slash: I wish to state, for the record, that I have no objections to homosexuality. I personally think the world needs all the love it can get, from whatever source it can get it. That said, however, I haven't a romantic bone in my body and simply prefer stories that dispense with romance - any pairing, slash or otherwise.
