Dear F-List:

I hold you all responsible for not telling me that Emma Bull had written an X-Files script. I mean, seriously, people, what do I keep you for?

And it's wonderful, of course, and made me massively nostalgic for the glory days of the series. Sigh. Anyway, [ profile] lydaclunas and other interested parties can find it here: Cuckoo.

And now I must dig up my old text files and see if I can find LoneGunGuy's "Diaspora", which is the other Best Non-Filmed Script Ever. I crack it out and re-read it every few years out of sheer admiration, and I still wonder -- who was that masked ficcer?

Hm, no X-Files icons. Alas.

Ficlets Ahoy!

A while back I said I'd post links to all the drabbles and other quick-fics I'd written for the "Stump the Author" meme, so here I am making good on that promise.

Doctor Who )

Doctor Who/X-Files )

Remington Steele )

House )

I also wrote Snape/Luna for [ profile] lizbee, but since that ended up being revised and expanded into the middle part of "Opportunities", there's no need to repost it here. I still owe her a Snape/Lily drabble, however, which I plan to write as soon as I can think of a suitable idea.
It has occurred to me that a few of my flist may be a bit shellshocked by all the Doctor Who raving all of a sudden, and are wondering whether I've completely lost my mind and will ever talk about anything else. To which the answer is:


Erm, actually that's not quite true. Just expect the DW stuff to be dominant for quite some time to come, because I have loved this show since I was a kid, it was one of the first fandoms I ever wrote fic for (and probably the one in which I've written the most fic, word-count wise -- don't even get me started on the illustrations!), and as you know I'm loving the new series all to pieces.

However, for those of you who couldn't care less about the Who prattle, and are wondering if I will ever get back to the Good Stuff, a brief explanation of where I'm at with regard to my other fandoms:

HP: Waiting for Book VI, like everybody else. Don't feel like speculating any more, even about Snape, until I have the straight goods from JKR Herself.

Alias: Keeping vague tabs on plot goings-on by reading other people's LJs, as am not actually watching the show at present. Understandably somewhat discouraged in my Sweiss leanings at the moment, so not so inclined to write a sequel/second chapter to A Man of His Word the way I'd once thought I might. You never know, though, things could change. Especially if You-Know-Who shows up later in the season as promised (no, not Voldemort).

Lost: Love the show. Have great fun speculating about it. Have developed elaborate theory about the island that I keep meaning to expound upon some day, but haven't got around to it yet. Absolutely no desire to write fic, however. I find the show itself too satisfying, and I'm too interested in the answers that the writers and JJ have to offer, to maintain that feeling of "ooh, I simply must fill in this gap!" that usually inspires plot bunnies.

Sherlock Holmes: Read Locked Rooms and loved it. Looking forward to reading other people's reviews. Still running the RUSS-L list, mostly by approving new members and glancing at the day's digests to make sure nobody is killing each other. Of course, nobody ever is, so it's a pretty low-stress job being ListMom. When was the last time you heard of a mailing list that has run busily for ten years and has hundreds of members, with not one single flamewar in the entire course of its history? This is why I love my Bees. *blows kisses to the Bees* Oh, and I haven't forgot about Case of the Winning Woman, it just requires more research than I have time to do at the moment. (Plus, where does one even start to find out about the terms of Victorian life insurance policies?)

Star Trek: Never again. No, really. I can't see it happening. I just don't care any more.

X-Files: On the other hand, never say never. I still get nostalgic for Mulder and Scully from time to time...

Oops, and almost forgot, which shows where my brain is at:

Kalan Porter: Felt that the Time Had Come to move on. Resigned my quasi-moderatorial status at KP4GU, and my real moderatorial status over at the Red Hot Topic KP board. Occasionally poke my nose in to one board or another to see if there's any really big news, but otherwise, that's about it. Wish him well, though.

Which Incarnation of the Doctor Are You? )

Which is a good cheap excuse to trot out this scene, the only time I ever actually wrote anything with that particular Doctor:

From 'Incarnations' (1999) )

Ha! I kill me!

And now I'm getting all nostalgic. Sigh.
Snape family dinner party it is.

I am amused by how many people told me to finish Incarnations, seeing as I almost, almost, put that as the last option on the poll. But then I thought, "Heh, I'm sure everybody's forgotten about that one by now, and what's the actual likelihood of me ever working on it again?" so I didn't.

If anybody feels like giving me a really good idea of what should happen next (or soon) in that story, however... be my guest. You never know, it might inspire me. But at this point I think the only way I could get interested again would be if I convinced myself the last three or four seasons of XF never happened...
Yeah, I'm finally getting around to *that* meme... )

And on a completely unrelated subject, I'm relieved by the recent (as of last week) turn of events on 24, because very minor spoiler )

The Meh-Files

OK, let me just state categorically, for the record, that the X-FILES finale was a piece of unmitigated crud and a waste of an hour of my time (I missed the first hour, but judging from the second, I didn't miss a thing). David Duchovny looked like he'd rather have been anywhere else but doing that last show,and frankly, I can't blame him...

Other than that, though, I had a good weekend. :)
For the sake of those (kindly and flatteringly) pestering me about various stories and works in progress, I thought I'd post a complete update on the status of all my projects:

1. Harry Potter fics

My half of Lessons has a good chance of getting finished some time in the next, oh, maybe six weeks or so. After that, you'll have to pester Erica instead.

The untitled Snapelets fic is on indefinite hold. I am still thinking about it, quite often in fact; but the more I think about it the more it looks like turning into an angst-ridden epic. I can't see getting anything that ambitious finished in the next two and a half months, and as soon as the new baby is born, I am going to be on indefinite hold myself, so...

2. Other Fanfics

Sincere apologies to my fellow X-Philes, but I don't see myself even working on, let alone finishing, Incarnations (the overly ambitious sequel to Possessions) now. It seems to have become a story in search of a plot, or at least a crisis -- and my enthusiasm for XF really waned after David Duchovny left the show. *cringes* Sorry. Maybe if you just sort of imagine what happened next...?

Treading onto the more fertile ground of ALIAS fic, I am still desperately fending off a plot bunny about what happened to Vaughn's tie (and the consequences thereof) after the events of "The Box, Part II". Maybe if I can write it up as a really fluffy bunny, instead of turning it into a full-blown action-adventure story, it'll be short enough that I won't feel guilty playing with it. Yeah. Right.

On the Doctor Who front, I've never really lost interest in the Eleventh Doctor and Thea, but the last project I was writing them into seems to have stalled (see Incarnations, above). Urk.

3. Original Works

Okay, so maybe The Case of the Winning Woman (I really need to change that title) doesn't exactly count as "original" since it's a Sherlock Holmes novel. But unlike my fanfic it actually stands a chance of getting published for profit. Anyway, I definitely haven't given up on this one, but continuing it past Chapter Six (sorry, only the first three chapters are available on the web) will require research, and that's something I haven't time to do right now. Try me again in another five years. :)

My epic fantasy Sevenstone is also worth continuing, I think, but again, it requires more mental energy (if not research in the same sense) than I have to give right now. See note at end of last entry.

And finally, my completed fantasy novel Knife (not available online) was revised recently with the help of the admirable and ever-encouraging Alec Dossetor. As such it ought to be making the rounds of publishers and/or agents, and it would be, if I weren't so dratted lazy. Plus I hate having editors or agents sit on the manuscript for 6-12 months at a time before telling me that gee, they really like it, but they just can't snap it up right now... Sigh.

Of course, those are just the projects people reading this blog might conceivably know about and/or have read bits of. I'm not even going to start talking about the status of my modern mystery novel, or my 12th-century historical / Robin Hood with a twist novel, or...

Obviously, I am not short of ideas.
