Some Excerpts

I saw the original airing of TS. I remember crying my eyes out at the end of Sentinel Too, part one. *G* Yelling at the TV, 'you can't stop there!!!'
I write what comes to me, not consciously picking a genre. I think I've done a bit of all of them except maybe the horror. I'm most comfortable writing a story when I know where I want to go with it. I don't always have a complete plan. I do like slice of life, tend to do a lot of those. And the case and action stories are fun to write, but they can take a lot of work. I spend a lot of time researching for some of them to make sure they are at least mostly realistic.
It may sound strange, but I'm most proud of 'Eye for an Eye' the Six Million Dollar Man crossover. A lot of research went into that story to make it as 'realistic' as possible. There's a lot of action, angst and h/c in it. I think a lot of people may have skipped over it because of the crossover, but it was written as a serious fic and I think because of the time and effort I put into it, it's one of my favorites.
I'm working on a new AU that will be used for TS and M7 (and who knows what else? *G*) It's set in a post-apocalyptic era. Jim is known as a Sentinel and the first fics will be a first meeting stories for both fandoms. I'm trying to get both of them done (yes, working simultaneously) very soon for the first post. For a new AU, I want to bring a fresh look at the characters and how they relate to the world they're in. There will be a few surprises and a few familiar faces.
