Week 1 - Not a lot of progress

I was crazy busy all week and the Super Bowl was on Sunday-and I keep letting the terrible situation in the entire world get me down.

But I came up with little tidbits: I have this amusing moment where Mike has to make his saving throw and its a high one (16). And in the game world they're like: "I don't think he's gonna make it." Cut to him rolling, then his character pops up. "I'm okay! I'm all right." And at the table he rolled a 16. Whew! So I think that will be a good funny moment.

The big arcs are going to be the challenge to all of this. I have to have them having a great time, feeling like its old times-but SHOWING how its not really old times. They just don't gel like they used to.

So quite a bit of work to do, but I'm excited about starting.

New Script for an Independent Film

I'm posting it here first (mainly because no one will ever see this, haha). But I have the script I'm going to do for my indie feature. Its called 'The D&D CLub' and its going to be great.

Now I have to breakdown the story today. Pacing and character arcs are going to be important. Also i have to have them have a great time at the beginning (This is so awesome...'just like old times') and then gradually wane during the session. It isn't like old times. They haven't recaptured the magic.

But in the end its closure for everyone, so it will be good.

I may post updates on here because this is as close to private as I can get haha.

Good to be using Livejournal again!

Star Wars: Aeons - Chapter 2

Title: Star Wars: Aeons - Chapter 2
A/N: This is an original novel that I wrote years ago set in the Star Wars universe. Aeons centers around an intrepid young girl-a general's daughter-who feels a strange connection to Yavin's moon, and to the people who-prior to their mysterious extinction-built the massive stone temples the Rebel Alliance calls home. Our heroine Aeon Quatorz (whose surname became my namesake) will discover more and more about those people, the Massassi, and may even learn the cause of their extinction. But at what risk to herself?
Disclaimer: The Star Wars universe belongs to George Lucas, of course. But the characters (aside from a few cameos) and plot are mine.
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1540
Continuity: Just after Episode IV.
Summary: It is mere days after the defeat of the Empire's secret weapon-the dreaded Death Star-at the hands of young Luke Skywalker. While the Rebel Alliance prepares to face its future, one among their number looks to the past...

Beware 'The Happening'.

 This is really more of a public service announcement.  But if you haven't seen the movie 'The Happening', by all means avoid it at all costs!

My Favorite Commercial

This is part of a series that Snickers did based around the theme of Snickers being a feast. It featured five characters either dressed as people from different time periods or perhaps because of some strange time phenomenon are actually from different time periods. Wisely, they don't make the distinction, and humor ensues. There are several different ones such as getting gas at the gas station and having their candy bars stolen by Robin Hood. But this is my favorite:

Enjoy 'Greensleeves'.

A Short Ficlet

Title: Imagine Sam & Brooke
Disclaimer: These characters belong to Ryan Murphy, but as carpesomediem said quite wisely: if he hasn’t come after us yet, he’s probably not gonna. The scenes from the movie they are watching are not mine either, and are used without permission (but I suspected you knew that)
Rating: PG
Word Count: 810-ish. It was 793 when I formatted the HTML, but then I made some changes
A/N: This is just a quick one that I hope you get a kick out of.
Prompt: A conversation with splendid_it about tragedy and angst in our fanfic. And-if you haven’t checked out their site, definitely do. The artwork is killer. If you have high blood pressure, avoid the kama sutra pic.
Damn, I’ve lost you now, haven’t I? Well, if you come back and read this, enjoy.
Continuity: This really isn’t in any possible universe because I’ve torn asunder the very fabric of time and space. In the S&B continuity that I’ve developed for my stuff this would be set in October/November of 2001. The movie ‘Imagine Me & You’ didn’t actually come out until 2005.
A/N: Does anyone else have a hard time remembering how different things were in 2001? I had a line where Brooke points out that the family room was the only room in the house with a DVD player, but when I researched the timeline for DVD penetration I wasn’t sure if that would have been the case. I’ve got, like, ten things in the house that can play a DVD now, but when did the transition occur? I dropped the line anyway, just to be safe.
Formatting Woes: I went to post this last night, using the exact same formatting that I used on ‘Self Fulfilling Prophecy’ and it came out all wrong. Ah, the harsh mistress that is HTML.
Summary: Sam and Brooke watch a movie together.

Experimenting with formatting

Drabble turned ficlet

Title: The Fairytale
Prompt: Snow
Rating: G
Word Count: 869
Disclaimer: Characters belong to Ryan Murphy, but I'm with carpesomediem on this one. If he hasn't complained yet...
A/N: Well, this was prompted by the drabble challenge, but (as you can see from the length) it is a bit long. I think I am genetically incapable of writing a drabble. And I have the utmost respect for all of those authors who write them with great aplomb, creating these fascinating glimpses into the lives of these characters. I just don't think I'll ever be one of those authors. I think even my disclaimer about not being able to write a drabble is exceeding drabble length...Sheesh.
A/N II: I must thank my beta reader, redlance_ck. You are awesome!
Summary: The gang gets together a few years after graduating.

My 15 Minutes of Fanfic Fame

Any Xena fans out there?  Wayyyy back in 2001, just after the end of XWP, the Academy of Bards posted a challenge to redo the finale.  How could I resist...?  So I wrote my one and only piece of fanfic: Hi no Tori (Japanese for 'The Phoenix').
