Item 1: LOIS & CLARK SEASON THREE OMG. It was my birthday present to meeee. This show got incredibly freaking weird once Lois cut her hair. The crazy psychic lady who lives downstairs from Lois! The aliens and conspiracies and possibly-alien love children! It's like X-Files on happy drugs.

Item 2: I just read the TNG novel "Reunion," and have come to a few important conclusions. One is that Jack Crusher is AWESOME, and the fact that I have had a mad crush on him since I was very small has been validated, despite him still never being ALIVE in anything I've seen or read. Two is that Beverly Crusher's life really is a long series of loss. *clings to her*

Item 3: I am now reading the Enterprise novel "Rosetta." It's hilarious how much Archer is an ass even in print! I love it so. And it's making me wish like crazy that I had seasons 3 and 4 on DVD so that I could watch the whole Xindi craziness again. And that it was still on TV. I miss Enterpriiiiiise!

Item 4: I am attacked by random moments of Sparky squeee. I still haven't seen the season finale of last season, but the relapsing squeee has made me order television at my new place for a few months JUST to be able to watch 'lantis and SG-1.

Item 5: I have been concocting stories in my head for a year or so in a fandom that I think I completely made up. Like, I made up the canon in really broad strokes (I'm not quite sure what this spy-like organization does..., though I got the idea and location from Jolt Central Intelligence games from Brown days) and then I started imagining what kind of crazy fanfics I would write if that canon really existed, and am now writing AU stories for a fandom that doesn't actually exist. *scratches head* This is only important because I spent an hour yesterday trying to turn one of those stories (which I really like) into some sort of familiar fandom so I could show it off, and I totally failed. Original fiction is laaaame! You actually have to write the plot and can't just skip to the AU post-ep good parts! :)

I recently got ahold of the TNG novel "Devil's Heart" and it is so Picard/Crusher shippy! :)

And original fic is so haaaaard. Grr.

Happy Birthday!!

Ah, Lois and Clark. Loved that show. Happened to get on a tour of Warner Bros. back when they were filming. They let us wander around the set.

You haven't seen the SGA finale yet?

Whatever. Not missing much. ;)

then I started imagining what kind of crazy fanfics I would write if that canon really existed, and am now writing AU stories for a fandom that doesn't actually exist. *scratches head*

Given my own struggles with original stuff, that sounds like a perfectly legitimate method to me.

You need to get the book "Death In Winter" (and there will be a follow-up novel to it). Bev and J-L hook up...literally and finally. *eyebrow waggle*

I miss Enterpriiiiiise!

Amen sista!!

And I want you to get sucked back into SGA. More S/W fic please! *holds out bowl*

It's like X-Files on happy drugs.

That has been my impression, too, from the fanfic I've read. (Yes, this was the show I spend hours reading fanfic for and have never yet actually seen.)

Also, I love the idea of your original fandom. AU seems perfectly reasonable to me! Totally get what you mean about having to make up actual plot, though.

You still don't have season 3 or 4? OMG, WE MUST RECTIFY THIS! *heads over to Amazon.com with your shiny new address in hand*

Happy Birthday. Hope you're having a SUPER day. *grins*

It did get a bit weird from Season 3 onwards of Lois & Clark. How bout the finale huh? lol!

I've only read two TNG novels... so long ago I forgot the names. ;) Poor B. Crusher. Season 3 of Enterprise was, in my opinion, some of the best Trek I've seen in ages. But following on from what The Shat said in that documentary "How William Shanter chanegd the world", it wasn't like the original. I don't anything could beat the original. lol! Tribbles!!!

Sparky-Sparky-Squeeeee! :D

I've had an original fic running through my head for, like, 29 years now. (sigh) It's an awesome story, too. Painful, sad, but so very good. Maybe someday ...
