Profile update on 2/28/12. Real life is still winning the war. (Anybody got a spare kidney? Dialysis sucks...) I swear I'm gonna get back to writing, honest, but I hafta win a few battles first. Your patience is much appreciated.
Oh, and I still hate Vista...
8/27/12 - Shiny new computer! No more Vista! I do believe there be some target practice comin' up...
I started writing 'What are we gonna do now?' during the summer of '03, finally got it finished right about the time the Angel series finale aired. Started writing the follow up story 'Did somebody say something about not fading away?' right after that. Went through the first story, trying to correct some of my errors, and started posting here. Hope you all enjoy these fics, I've certainly enjoyed a great many of yours.
I'm absolutely loving the Buffy season 8 comics (Joss is God!), but for the sake of the timeline I've established for my fics, season 8 never happened, unless otherwise stated in an individual story.
'What are we gonna do now?' is complete. It starts in the last minutes of 'Chosen'. BTVS/Highlander crossover.
'Did somebody say something about not fading away?' is, at long last, COMPLETE! Sequel to 'What are we gonna do now?',picks up at the end of 'Not Fade Away'. BTVS/Highlander/StargateSG-1/Charmed/LOTR crossover, with elements of Doctor Who and Dogma thrown in.
'The vampires in question' is a one shot, set during 'The girl in question' and fits into my storyline between 'What are we gonna do now?' and 'Did somebody say something about not fading away?'. BTVS/Highlander. Complete.
'The Contest' is a stand alone and has nothing to do with my other stories. I think. It's a BTVS/Dragonball GT crossover I wrote for my son. We're both huge fans. Complete.
'Stupid mirror' is a Stargate SG-1/Dragonball Z crossover. Just another bit of silliness that I turned into a story for my son. Complete.
'The Wake' was written after I watched the season premiere (final season) of Charmed. This might wind up tying into one of 'The Guardian Chonicles' fics at some point, haven't really made up my mind yet. BTVS/Charmed crossover. Complete, I think, although this could sorta be considered to be the first of the 'I told you so' fics.
'Another 'I told you so moment' is a WIP. It was originally a one-shot, but I decided to try to make it into a series. BTVS.
'Existence'is set in part IX of 'Did somebody say something about not fading away?', and ties into what happens along about chapters eight, nine and ten. Complete. BTVS.
'Christmas, with aliens'. Just a bit of silliness I fired off after watching Episode III again. BTVS/Stargate SG-1.Complete.
'The Guardian Chronicles: When callings collide'. BTVS/Tru Calling, sequel to 'Did somebody say something about not fading away?'. First 'Guardian Chronicles' fic. Buffy meets Tru Davies, after getting her head lopped off. Complete. (Yes, I actually finally finished it!)
'The Red Goddess and the Lonely God'. Second in the Guardian Chronicles series. BTVS/Doctor Who, with some Stargate SG-1, Stargate-Atlantis and Dogma thrown in. God asks Willow for a favor. Seems there's a certain Wandering Time Lord in need of some help. Some of it's gonna be fun, some of it's gonna be angsty. To tell the truth, I'm makin' it up as I go. In progress.
'Grieving' is a Firefly fic, set post 'Serenity'. Loved that movie, still mad that they killed off Book and Wash, though. River helps Zoe deal with her grief. Complete.
'Since the day I met you'. Firefly, sequel to 'Grieving'. Mal and Inara, finally how it should be. Complete.
'The Stupidest Question'. Complete. BTVS, set during 'Forever'.This was something of a result of me trying to deal with the deaths of one of my aunts and my great-grandmother. Definitely angsty.
'Stargate-Galactica'. Stargate Atlantis/Battlestar Galactica (original, as in 1978, not the new soap opera) crossover. The Colonial Fleet shows up in the Pegasus Galaxy. In progress. I swear I'll get back to this eventually. Honest! Just as soon as it stops kickin' my ass...
'The last of his kind? Well, maybe not...'. Doctor Who. Ninth Doctor. Romana shows up, wondering what happened to Gallifrey. Complete. I wrote this before I found out that Romana had come back from E-Space and was President. Oops.
'Whoops...' Doctor Who, complete. Just a short little sumthin' that popped into my beady little brain after watching a rerun of 'Doomsday'. My Muse was bein' nit-picky...
'That alternate reality stuff'. BTVS / Stargate SG-1 crossover. Short little drunken moment with Samantha Carter and Willow. Complete.
'The Immortal Cheerleader'. Heroes/Highlander crossover. After the Big Battle, Claire goes to Paris, meets a certain Immortal couple, and finds out something new about herself. In Progress.
'Kids will be kids, right?'. Stargate SG-1, complete (I think...). Vala gets introduced to the wonder that is 'Star Wars'. Wackiness ensues.
'Those darn kids'. Stargate SG-1, complete. Sequel to 'Kids will be kids, right?'. Offworld silliness with toy light-sabers.
'Part of the Team'. Stargate SG-1, complete. Vala angst, big time. Tag I wrote for the end of 'The Quest, Part II'.
'The Biker Babes of SG-1'. Complete. Carter decides to go to Bike Week in Daytona, and invites Vala to come along. Lil' bit of goofiness that came out of nowhere, but, oh, what fun!
'Dinner and a Movie'. Stargate SG-1, complete. Sam and Jack fluffiness. Went to see 'The Simpsons Movie', there was this plot bunny, I fought the plot bunny, it kicked my ass.
'It's one of those destiny... things'. Smallville/Doctor Who crossover, complete. The Doctor rescues Clark at the end of the season 8 premiere instead of the Martian Manhunter and gives him a look at things to come.
'Olympic Fever'. Stargate-Atlantis, complete. The Atlantis crew goes a bit Olympic crazy. Bit 'o silliness that wouldn't get outta my noggin 'til I wrote it.
'Hey, don't look at me!' House, M.D., complete. Humor, with a wee bit o' romance. House actually decides to follow Wilson's advice for once, and badness does therefore ensue.
'His reward'. Doctor Who, complete. Just my idea of what might have happened at 'The End of Time'.
'Here, at the end of all things stand we'. BTVS, Guardian Chronicles fic, complete. Willow, Dawn, and God Herself at the end of the universe, and the beginning of the next.
Likes: Well, the Buffyverse, obviously. Big sci-fi nut. Big Doctor Who fan from way back. (Tom Baker rules!) My favorite authors are Tolkien and Clive Cussler, although I have to admit that Diane Duane and Aaron Allston have probably had more influence on my writing style than anybody else. If you haven't read any of their stuff, you definitely should! I have pretty eclectic tastes in music. Tool, Stabbing Westward (before they went lame), Zombie, Korn, Killswitch Engage, Lacuna Coil, etc. I also like Good Charlotte, Michelle Branch, Matchbox Twenty, Def Leppard, Aerosmith, AC/DC, etc. Lots of other stuff, can't think of any of it right now, though.
Dislikes: While I'm pretty liberal, I do tend to get sick of people who feel they have to get in everybody's face about whatever their problem of the week is. Gets old.
Someday maybe I'll stop being irked about the cancellation of excellent shows like BTVS, Angel, Dark Angel, John Doe, Tru Calling, Birds of Prey, Firefly, Farscape,etc., etc. But not yet...
Favorite quotes: "To thee no star be dark, both Heaven and Earth, friend thee forever..."Act I, scene IV, 'The Two Noble Kinsmen' by Fletcher and Shakespeare. Many thanks to Carebear Stare and Hermionette for filling me in on the origin of the quote. I read it somewhere, once upon a time, never had a clue who wrote it. You guys rule!
"Sail forth, steer for the deep waters only, reckless O soul, exploring, I with thee and thou with me. For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go, and we will risk the ship, ourselves, and all." Author: Walt Whitman. Just screams adventure, doesn't it?
"Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth, and danced the skies on laughter silvered wings; Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth of sun-split clouds, and done a hundred things you have not dreamed of. Wheeled and soared and swung high in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there, I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung my eager craft through footless halls of air... Up, up, the long, delirious, burning blue I've topped the wind swept heights with easy grace where never lark, or even eagle flew. And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod the the high untrespassed sanctity of space, put out my hand, and touched the face of God." 'High Flight' by John Gillespie Magee Jr.
"When you come to the edge of all the Light you have known and are about to step out into the Darkness, Faith is knowing that one of two things will happen... There will be something to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly." Title and author unknown. If anybody knows, please clue me in.
