A DISABLED ENGINE LIES USELESS IN THE HANGAR. IT HAS NO CHOICE. A CRIPPLED PLANE MAY STILL LIMP INTO PORT, DOING ITS JOB AND BRINGING ITS CREW AND PASSENGERS SAFELY HOME. IT HAS A CHANCE. I'D RATHER BE CALLED CRIPPLED ANY DAY!
I have multiple stories on the go at any one time. Even when I upload stories chapter by chapter, I will strive to only upload stories that I have completed (in my head or on my computer) because I hate getting really excited about a story only to find it abandoned =(
My fanfics fall into one of three categories:
CREATIONS change circumstances by asking “WHAT IF?” (What if A has a different job? What if B lives in the age of dinosaurs, in space, or both? What if C didn’t die?) or characters by asking “WHY SHOULDN’T THEY?” (Why shouldn’t ‘canon straight’ A be paired gay (or vice versa)? Why shouldn’t B be another gender/animal/ object? Why shouldn’t C be twenty years older, and a single parent with four kids?
FIXES fill in plot holes by asking “HOW?” (How did A & B repair their friendship? How did C end up with their hand in a cast? How did D get a bald head?) and “WHY?” (Why did A get a promotion? Why did B appear pregnant for three episodes? Why did C suddenly leave the show without notice?)
B.S. stories do not diverge from canon, but are set before series.
PET PEEVE IN FANFICS
My pet peeve in fanfic is PSPS – Protective Superior Person Syndrome. In PSPS, one person (usually older or in a higher professional position) is always the protector, saviour, corrector, coddler, and all-round Good Guy, the other person (usually younger or in an inferior professional position) is always hurt, weak, disabled, in trouble, or otherwise victimised, and the roles are never reversed. C’mon people! Just because a character is younger or less physically able, doesn’t mean they don’t have brains and skills!
I deeply appreciate polite concrit reviews. I do ask, however, that you do not PM people who have reviewed me about their reviews. What they say is between me and them. nobody else!
There are a lot of conflicting dates and facts in the canon timeline, so I made my own. All my multi-chapter BB stories will follow this timeline. I will add to it as necessary.

(Note: Frank's reasoning for the way he treats Danny and Jamie at work is that he can't show them any favouritism. Fair enough. But that line of reasoning would make a heck of a lot more sense if a) he didn't kiss and hug Erin every time they meet in a business setting (he wouldn't do that to any other ADA!), and b) there was a marked difference between the way he acted at work and at home. I can't see one. So I made one - you will (hopefully) notice that my stories have 2 distinct Franks - Commissioner Reagan and Family Man Frank.)
