Song of the Open Road
This was for the fans going
to Canada, for the
convention. A little 'bon voyage' gift originally posted to
the BBTV board, the week everyone converged on Calgary. Everyone
needs a tale to travel by... Rated G
the Persistence of Memory
to the music chamber after his collapse, and finds a new
beginning. My first offering to
Chambers, and the lovely people who work and play
there. PG or a soft R, depending on how you feel about
Ron Perlman turns
65, and reminisces about the 'small moments' in his
career which turned into larger ones. An open 'letter' to
is son, Brandon, and part of the Birthday celebration on
Chambers. Many thanks to Angie and Judi for inviting
me to the party! G rated (except for the language, which
is Ron's, so you can bump it up to PG if you like)
Something fun, and forever. Vincent and Catherine have
loved each other eternally, and continue to do so - as
their celestial selves visit a certain couple on a
certain balcony in New York.
Originally written as a 'stand alone' vignette, this
became the 'prize' at the end of the 'treasure hunt' for
WFOL, 2015. It also serves as an 'ending' to the "Immortal
Lovers" series on WFOL that same year, but can be enjoyed
without having read that series.
For Christmas 2014, we were
offered the challenge of coming up with a piece of fiction to
accompany Sandy X's lovely drawing "Santa Baby." Here's mine. (How
does Vincent end up in that wonderful hat?)
Form Follows Function - and Fate
It always bothered me that
Catherine was seriously involved with someone as irritating as Tom
Gunther. This started out as an exercise to try and explain that,
some. I tried to make him more ‘real’ as a character, as Catherine
explored her new changes, and Vincent endured the separation from
Catherine until he couldn’t, any longer. As such, it’s an episode
expansion within the pilot. (Jan 29, 2015)
The Anniversary pieces
September 25, 2014: my first
Anniversary of the airing of the Show! Yay!
For the Anniversary, we
were invited to write a piece inspired by a BatB artwork. Two
pieces were chosen. My results are below.
The Tunnel Hop
Inspired by Sandy "Chan"
Shelton's "The Tunnel Hop" famously owned by Ron Koslow. We all
help each other, and live as best as we can. With an afterword of
to be Here
Inspired by Sandy Tew's
terrific drawing "Is it Hot in Here?" If I could draw this well,
I'd probably never write. (Because a picture is worth a thousand
words, of course.)
An Alternate Universe
Halloween (2014) story
Chapter 1 --
Chapter 2 --
Chapter 3 --
Chapter 4 --
This is Dancing, Too?
Inspired by conversations had during the September anniversary
celebration, 2014. We all inspire each other.
Jacob's reminiscences about
being a bridegroom make him realize that Vincent, too, has a place
in such things.
Written for the
September 25th Anniversary celebration for 2014 on BatBland.
Dedicated to the Dreamers, and the Dream Keepers.
Great Expectations, The
The book Vincent reads to Catherine in the Pilot doesn't just
contain a classic story. It has one all its own...
Meant as a fun bit of vignette fluff read in the voice Dickens
himself sometimes wrote in. Re-edited some, this first appeared in
WFOL 2014. My first foray into fan fiction, written back when I
didn't know anything about fandom or fan fiction. Some things
haven't changed all that much.
Erica Salven Be Saved? Can Anyone?
PG-13 for some adult language.
Joe Maxwell hasn't seen Erika Salven for a while. But that is
about to change...
A continuation of "Temptation."
R for descriptions of
Episode expansion of "To Reign in Hell," as Vincent considers who
it is that truly 'reigns,' in the tunnels. Inspired by a
conversation over on BBTV Yahoo, regarding how Vincent feels about
his fangs. Rare in that it is written in the first person.
No Heaven for Fallen
NC-17 for descriptions of
This episode expansion of "The Outsiders" picks up almost the
moment the show ends, as Vincent feels he is too inhuman for he
and Catherine to continue. A dark and angsty exploration with an
emotionally satifying ending, for the show faithful.
