Subject:Look at the pretties! And general update.
Time:10:14 pm
Yes, I am still alive.  I finished zine fic #1 for The Brotherhood and turned it in and was given this lovely wallpaper as a gift from Cathy (one of the editors and cover artist) for tribbing.  Now, isn't that super nice?  The title of the fic is Going Dutch and deals with the lengths Rodney will go to save John from a mysterious illness on an alien planet, but the entire team gets to play and its over 17,000 words.  I have another zine fic due in January, but that should give me time to finish up the details fic I'm working on now.  This one is for Whispers and, believe it or not, it's an AU in the western genre (honestly, Whispers was a huge let down for me and I went with a teeny tiny detail of John twirling his gun before reholstering it, so yeah, big stretch).   The working title is The Battle of Canaan's Bluff and it's going to be a full blown fic and not the little missing scene ficlets I've been doing lately so it's taking a little more time.

I've also managed to survive the Great Lizard Rebellion of Aught Eight and recaptured my son's house gecko that escaped it's cage for almost a week... during which time my son refused to sleep in his bedroom where we had said lizard trapped.  My husband really is an intelligent man in most regards, but why on Earth he thought it would be a good idea to leave the lid off the cage while he and son changed out the water bowl is beyond me.  When he called me at work to tell me what happened, the first thing I asked was "Why didn't you use the net I bought to avoid this exact thing from happening?"  At which point hubby asks, "What was I supposed to do with the net?"  "Trap the lizard in it and hold it against the side of the cage so it can't climb out.  It seems rather self evident to me how it should be used."  Fortunately the lizard eventually moved back in on his own and my son was able to move out of the living room and hubby now understands the concept of the net.

More than the lizard, I also survived my German in-laws.  I did get a wonderful day at the beach in San Diego (the water was the warmest it's ever been in 17 years I've been going down there to visit with hubby) and a trip to Ikia, which is usually the highlight of any trip to southern California.

Squee! New fic! Do you know when the zine will be available to purchase and how I can go about getting one? I can't wait to read your AU western, that sounds awesome! I must admit I skipped Whispers, but from what I've heard, I didn't really miss that much.

Both zines I've been asked to trib to will premiere at MediaWest next May (so a bit of a ways away. *G*) As soon as I have the order information from the publishers, I'll post it. As to Whispers, the only part I enjoyed were the very very beginning and very very end with Rodney, John, and Carson. I didn't *hate* it like I did say, Travelers, but it isn't one that I will watch again. So, I was really worried about what I was even going to write about with that ep. The only thing that really stood out was the way John twirls his gun at one point before reholstering it and Koschka's been asking for a western from me and it finally all came together in my head after sleeping on it for a few nights. *G* So, hopefully it will work.

Oh, I'm so happy to hear that they enjoyed it! I was really worried at the end that I would make the deadline. Earlier in the week I thought I'd make it no problem and then the one day I thought I'd have lots of writing time turned into none and we had the in-law trip that weekend before it was due. On top of that, it ended up being about 2,000 words longer than I thought it was going to be. Fortunately, it's a five hour drive for us to San Diego, so I was able to finish it on the drives and do a final readover on Monday at work before submitting it that evening. ::wipes sweat from brow:: Do you want me to send it directly to you so you can read it now? It will be our little secret. *G*

Well, there's plenty of whump to go around in the zine fic. *G* And I just love the stormy seas of Atlantis in the wallpaper... very pretty.

p.s. Love the icon!

The zine fic - two zine fics. Very much looking forward to those, especially the first one. Anxiously waiting for ordering info.

Glad you captured the escaped lizard. Hee, my cousins lost their lizard in my Grandma's car and didn't tell her. On her way to work at 5:30 in the morning she found him. Drove right over to their house, roused them out of bed and made them retrieve the little beast. Gotta love lizards.

Sounds like a nice time in California - beaches and Ikea!

Glad you're home safe and sound.

That damn lizard... my biggest fear was that is would die in there and my son would never move back into his room. Evidently it found a big bug under the bed, though, based on the remains in the tank when it went finally moved back in. I figure it was like the lizard version of Thanksgiving and it was so full it was too lazy to run away again. *G*
