I’m still here, just very busy! I’ve moved to a different state and am still getting settled in; I just moved in on Friday. I have a little time now, so I’m going to start writing again. My fics have been going very slow because I’ve been so busy and preoccupied. I’m still going to have very little time in the next month or two, but I will finish my fics and for those who like You reap What you Sew and A crop of Good and Evil, the final fic in the trilogy will be written and posted some time in 2011.

Hi guys. Last night, I completed posting Daddy’s Here. I warn you, the last two chapters are packed with fluff.
Today, I’m posting the first in a series of one shots I’ve titled Speculations; the series is titled Speculations, not the first story. I may not have a story with the series title; it depends on how things go. But the first story in this series is called Repercussions and I have one more idea so far. I’m hoping I’ll have more ideas as I keep watching General Hospital. Before, I was basically coming up with my own scenarios on how things would be dealt with. This series will dig deeper and I’m actually thinking about what could happen. For example, the first one deals with what would happen if Spinelli and Maxie get married and then he finds out about her plan to use birth control. The second story will deal with what could possibly happen if and when Lucky finds out Liz slept with Nick. In other words, I want to try to think more outside the box. Each story will start off with a question. “What if this happened?” “How would you react if this happened?” “What would you do if you were in this situation?”
I may or may not round off the Total Honesty series with a fourth story; if I don’t, Off the Pedestal will be the last. But I think I have just enough material for one more in order to get us to where Spinelli and Lulu are on the show, and hopefully further in their friendship since I still think Lulu treats him more like an acquaintance, although I don’t think that’s her intention anymore.
In a few days, I’m also going to start posting The Triangle of Terror, which as I said before is the sequel to Daddy’s here and as far as I know the last in the series, unless another idea hits me unexpectedly.
Also, I’m not going to be putting the note about seeing the link in my profile for the author’s notes anymore. It’s already in the profile and my regular readers already know, so I think it’s kind of redundant to keep putting it in the summaries.
As I finished writing Daddy, I realized that it would detract from the story, and the entire series, to bring Spinelli too far back to where he was before, and where he is on the show. But I am going to try to keep in mind his character on the show and Sue Rum’s view of him because she does have a very workable psychoanalysis of him, if that makes any sense. I’m trying to portray him in Family Therapy more like he is on the show, but you won’t really see that until around chapter five and into six. But he’ll also do things in Family Therapy that he probably won’t do on the show, and for very specific reasons. That’s all I’m going to say, except that his future decisions in Therapy will stem from the discoveries he makes visiting Granny.
I hope you like Repercussions and the end of Daddy and I can’t wait to see what people think of Triangle.
Oh, before I go and post Repercussions, The Year of the Harvest, which would be the last in my Darkwing Duck series about Bushroot’s being reformed, is on indefinite hiatus. I just can’t get inspired. I wish I could, but it’s just not coming. My Harry Potter fic is also on hiatus. Bye for now.

I finally finished writing Daddy’s Here! It’s a hundred chapters total and four hundred pages, but it’s finally finished!
I posted chapter 90 on Friday, but for some reason it wouldn’t show up for a long time. I was finally able to bring it up this morning. I’m going to be posting the next chapter today.
I’m still working on Family Therapy and The Triangle of Terror. Triangle is already going to be longer than I expected, but I seriously doubt it will be as long as Daddy’s Here. I didn’t plan to have a hundred chapters; it just happened that way.
Family Therapy will also have a sequel, but it’s not titled yet. Therapy focuses only on Spinelli’s point of view. The sequel, which will actually start during Therapy and the first part, the part that takes place during Therapy, will actually be more of a companion to the first piece. It will detail other characters’ reactions to what’s happening.
I’m off to write more after I post chapter 91 of Daddy. To my faithful reviewers, thanks for sticking with me through such a huge project!

I haven’t disappeared from Cyberspace, although sometimes it feels like I have. I’ve just been really distracted.
I’m working on wrapping up Daddy’s Here; that will have another ten to fifteen chapters, give or take a few. I don’t want it to be any longer than a hundred chapters total if I can help it; I can’t believe it’s gotten so long! I’ll start posting more of that in a few weeks, once I have more of it completed.
Today I’m posting the beginning of a story that I had an idea for a long time ago, when Spinelli was having trouble with the FBI and Maxie said all those horrible things to him. I’ve changed it slightly to fit the current story line, but the basic idea is the same. It’s told completely from Spinelli’s point of view, no others, so his perceptions are what you’ll see. He thinks Maxie accepted his proposal because she loves him, not because Mack said no, for example. His opinions about his reactions to things will be based on what he perceives as his inadequacies, not the way his friends see him.
Please let me know what you think of my new story, Family Therapy. It will start out slow; the first four or five chapters will basically be setting the stage for what is supposed to happen. Also, I decided to throw in a PI case that has ties to Spinelli’s story that he doesn’t expect. I don’t know yet if it will be a major tie or not, but I do know it’s going to be another reason for the title of the story. Check out the summary and you’ll see the main reason for the title.
Thanks to the people who explain to me about the movie the Grasshopper was in. I’ll have to find it sometime with my file sharing program.

I’m back. I’ve been really busy, plus I had a huge writer’s block. But I’m getting through it now and I know where I want the story to go and what I want to do. Daddy’s Here will diverge from the show in a lot of ways. Michael won’t wake up. I’m sorry, but permanent is supposed to mean forever, not just how long the writers say it is. That’s why I hate back from the dead stories, unless we already know the supposedly dead person was never really dead to begin with, like when we know Sonny or Jason’ fakes their death.
There will be no Ethan; he just doesn’t do anything for me. You will see Georgie and Spinelli get married, and the birth of Baby Maxie. Robin’s PPD will end, not much differently from the way it did on the show, but there will be a couple of changes to fit the story. There are also some surprises for Nadine, and Jason’s life will also take another unexpected turn.
I’m not positive about how the story will end, only that it will end with Kendra’s first birthday. Then I’ll be working more on the sequel, The Triangle of Terror, which is set ten years in the future, when Kendra’s eleven and Maxie’s ten.
I’ve also been working on several other GH stories, but they’re not completed yet. I’ll probably start posting Triangle before I post any of the others. I’ve also been meaning to work more on Missing Pieces, but I just haven’t gotten around to it.
So now I’m off to post the next chapter of Daddy’s here. I hope you like it.

I won’t be updating any of my stories for a few weeks. I’m going away and this week I’ll be preparing. I have to pack, buy a few things and fill out some papers. But as soon as I get back and settled back in at home I’ll be updating again. I don’t know if I’ll have time for reading or writing fics. I’ll miss you guys. See you in a few weeks.
Friday, November 14, 2008
For my fellow GH fans reading Daddy’s here, I won’t be updating for a while. I’m making changes to the story. For one thing, Robin’s baby will be born sooner; no eleven month pregnancy. This means I’ll be changing a few other things in the timeline, too. Also, thanks to one of my reviewers, can’t remember who, but they asked me if there would be a guy for Nadine, I think I found one. Sorry Nick and Nadine lovers, but he’s not it; I just don’t think they fit together. But you will see him when I update again. They won’t meet right away, though; I’ve got Robin’s labor and all those issues to get through first. This guy is also going to be another good friend to Spinelli, Georgie and Kendra.
But while I’m making changes to Daddy, I’ll be posting the last chapter of Jack and posting other completed fics. One will be a one-shot and the other will be a story that I’ve been working on for months called Tabula Rosa and has to do with fresh starts for Lulu, Spinelli and Maxie.
If you want, look me up on live journal, same user name as here, and at dreamjournal.net, also the same user name.

Yikes! I was just looking at my profile and realized I haven’t updated it since November of last year, so here’s an update.
My General Hospital fics are still taking off in my head and as you probably can see, I’ve done a lot more since my last update. The Jackal has a lot to tell me, it seems.
I’m also writing, very slowly, a sequel to Crop. It’s going slowly because LP and my other DWD characters are having trouble communicating with me. Or am I having trouble communicating with them? Anyway, I did write a little bit more last night, but I’m still only on chapter one. I’m hoping to have the first chapter written and ready for posting by New Year’s, though. I really do want to get back to my DWD fics, and my Harry Potter Fic, before too long; I miss them.
Incidentally, I’m deleting my Harry Potter fic. I’m redoing the whole thing; everything I wrote there already will be in there, but in later chapters. I’ve decided not to do it in flashback form and I’m going to start it just before Hagrid is born.
If you want details on what I’m working on, look at the ld29info forum under the updates topic.
I decided to only put the link to the forum at the end of the profile, since that’s closest to the list of stories. But I’d like your opinion on something. Does anyone read the author’s notes there? If not, should I put them back in the stories, or is it enough that the notes are written somewhere? Please private message me and let me know?
I’m a huge fan of Duck Tales and Darkwing Duck. I started writing my stories and posting them before I created my profile, so anyone who read some of my stories before I created it knows that. I had been reading fanfic and downloading episodes of both shows for a while and decided to try writing fics of my own.
I also wrote a Star Trek The Next Generation fic after reading one that gave me an idea; Data is my favorite character in that show.
I’ve read all seven Harry Potter books and they’ll be instrumental in writing Connections, my biography for my favorite character, Hagrid. I just need to get the rest of these fics out of my head before I can continue with that one because these ones are screaming at me.
I want to write my Thundercats and Narnia fics, too; I just need to find the time to sit down, think them out and get them started.
Launchpad is my all time favorite TV character, so I’ll never have a DT or DW fic without him in it. Also, I’ll never be mean to him like some fic writers, and like Disney was! I never knew my father, so I used to fantasize when DT was popular that Launchpad was my father. Can’t my fellow DT and/or DW fans just picture him with a daughter? I can actually picture him with several children.
There is some speculation on the web about Drake and Launchpad’s ages. For some reason in the DT show, I always pictured Launchpad as being twenty-seven when I was thirteen, so by the time he moved to Saint Canard he was twenty-nine, approaching thirty. I pictured Drake, then, as being twenty-seven and the High School reunion he went to in Clash Reunion was his ten year reunion. I just don’t like the idea of either of them being in their forties in the show; it just seems wrong. If that had been the case, most younger children who would have watched the shows would have thought LP and DW were ancient! That’s just my opinion, though.
But I found a character to equal LP as my favorite, but for different reasons, although when I really thought about it Launchpad and Spinelli from general Hospital do have one similarity. They’re equals, not rivals; I love them both the same, but as I said, for different reasons. So I’ll never write a GH fic without Spinelli in it. Actually, he’s the main character in all my GH fics. Some characters unfortunately have to be mean to him, but General Hospital is a soap and Darkwing and Duck Tales were cartoons, so my mindset is different in that respect.
The thing I think Spinelli and Launchpad have in common is that in some way they’re both sidekicks; Launchpad is sidekick to DW, although I still don’t understand why he was made a sidekick in DWD when in DT he was his own man and was able to be the hero. Spinelli is, by choice, a sort of sidekick to Jason; he considers himself Stone Cold’s grasshopper and wants to be like him. BTW, does anyone know what movie The Grasshopper was from? I can’t remember and it’s been driving me crazy! PM me if you know please and tell me? The difference in the sidekick issues is that in most ways Jason treats Spinelli better than Darkwing sometimes treats Launchpad. In every other way, LP and Spin are totally different, but equally cool, sweet, smart and funny.
As a child, TV characters were my imaginary friends and I used to do crossovers in my head and act them out. For example, Jaga from the Thundercats would talk to Jack Tripper from Three’s Company. It wasn’t until last year, about eighteen years after I gave up imaginary friends completely, that I got a mental picture of how Jack would really react if he came home to find Jaga sitting in his living room. Any Three’s Company fan would know exactly what I mean.
I haven’t had any ideas for crossovers that don’t make sense anymore. I’m kind of sad about that because I think my imagination was more active when I was a child. But maybe that’s a good thing because I’ve seen summaries for cross over stories that had no business being together! I wish I could remember one of them so I could give an example.
I don’t like putting author’s notes in my stories; I find them distracting. I had them in this profile for a while, but it began to get very disorganized. So now I have a forum (click the link below) where I have information on all my stories, and their author’s notes. I also put links to the stories in the forum topic, and each story has its own topic, so you don’t have to come back here and find the one you want to read. I find this to be more organized, but if you don’t, let me know.
