Author has written 4 stories for Stargate: SG-1, and Airwolf.
Predominately I made the account to be able to encourage other writers and make comments on stories I enjoyed, though I have gone on to do some writing of my own, mostly Stargate SG-1 and Airwolf. Varthara is one of the few authors I've seen to successfully put the two shows together and I check my emails often with the hope that she will one day return to doing the 'Urban Legend' stories.
My story, 'Troubled Times' is largely AU because I refuse to kill off good characters to raise my ratings.
July 21, 2012... Real life is a bummer, you know what I mean? I lost my job about a year ago, and still don't have as much time as I would like to write.
One of my reviews for Angel's Fall mentioned reading the story in another location. I posted it two months prior at the Wolf's Lair story site, which is found off of Alex Cord's official website. It is the only story there that I wrote alone, though I have worked with the site's main writer to finish the story 'Second Chances'. The site has several very, very good short stories, including at least two of Deb's stories that weren't posted to FanFiction. Most people who have read through the Airwolf stories on FanFic have read her fantastic story, 'Aftermath', the first story for that show to be posted here. 'The Letter' and 'Waiting for Moses' are equally as good.
A word of warning to those who go to the site: The warnings for the stories should be taken very seriously, and some of the content for the serial stories is R-rated for mature audiences.
The Alex Cord website is easily found, and the Wolf's Lair link is near the bottom of the page along with copies of some interviews and information on the gentleman's publications.
To answer the big question, yes, I do still have the Troubled Times story in progress... Trouble is, I don't have a clue right now as to where to progress it to, and I'm currently helping out with an Airwolf story, and that's been in the works long than my SG1 story has been. Patience please, and my thanks to those who continue to pester (all very nicely, thank you) for me to finish the story.
As the saying goes, good things come to those who wait.
Sorry, folks, but at the age of 48 I decided to go to collage and have been really, really busy. I have a couple of Airwolf short stories in the works right now that I haven't had the time to beta. Hopefully they'll be up soon.
Troubled Times, I'm afraid, is living up to it's name. I will admit that I wrote myself into a corner, haven't even looked at it in years, and if I get some time, I'll have to reread and re-plot the story.
In the meantime, I've been writing Airwolf, as many might have noticed, mostly tags and missing scenes at this point. Due to the fiasco that 'Troubled Times' has become, I'm trying not to post anything until I have the entire story done to prevent stories from hanging. I admit that I hate it, and I hang my head in shame that I allowed myself to do it.
A couple of people have commented on how I have characters interacting in the Airwolf short stories I've done, in particular the interaction and friendship between Hawke and Archangel. Actually, if you look through the episodes of the series, it's actually fairly clear to see that, outside of some style differences, the two men were friends. My proof? In the episode 'Desperate Monday' Michael is rather frantic when shots break out on the QE2 and visibly relieved when Hawke finally answers his radio calls. In the episode "Crossover' they mistakenly believe that Hawke was killed in a car crash into the ocean, and Michael has to take the news to Dom and Cait. He finds he can't actually tell them, he has to let one of his aids give them the details.
So, why the clashes between them so often? I believe it was a matter of mindset. Hawke is a soldier with the 'you don't leave people behind' and the 'don't leave an enemy standing' mindsets. Michael, however, is a spy, trained to 'get in, get what's needed and get out without the enemy knows you were there' mindset with a good dose of 'political expediency' added in. While their goals were often the same, how you got there and how many bodies you left behind to be cleaned up were a different matter.
The point? I think the main reason why Hawke refused to give Airwolf back wasn't that he thought Michael would stop looking for his brother, but rather that he thought Michael's superiors would cut him off and keep Michael from getting the job done once they had their hands on her.
As the saying goes, 'Possession is 9/10ths of the law'.
Dennis Miller on O'Reilly tonight talking about his good friend Robin Williams: "Robin told me when he was young he would play alone with toy soldiers. My first thought when I heard he'd passed was that the toy soldiers of the world had lost their best general."
I'm currently working with someone who's got a story going over in the 'Airwolf crossover' section. Check out the stories crossed with McGyver and Knight Rider for some very good reading.
