Quote 23 and Other Stuff  
Not much going on here. Major thunderstorms are passing through so I felt I'd better get this posted during a lull. I hope everyone in the UK Flood Zone is doing well and have no major losses. I was thinking of you when I heard all this but not knowing where you lived, I wasn't sure how you stood. ( I hope that makes some sort of sense.)

The last quote was from M*A*S*H, though I'm not exactly sure which episode. I neglected to write the title. This one is a bit more "upscale" as it were, more cultural.

There’s nothing either good or bad, but thinking
Makes it so

OK, now I'm asking favors--again. I have a few unfinished fics hanging about and I need jump-starts. I'll give a little breakdown and if you're interested, let me know.

1. A 5th Doctor-Nyssa fic in which they arrive in what was my old hometown in 1976. They pick up a young high school girl and whip off to what they hope in Greenwich England only to arrive in Greenwich CT during the American Revolution on the eve of an infamous confrontation. (I have historic notes and outlines attached)

2. A Sentinel fic that is actually a sequel of one of my own fics involving characters from my Eagle Chronicles series. Jim and Blair are transporting a criminal back to London and on the way from the airport, the convoy is ambushed and the criminal is killed. An old friend asks them to investigate knowing that there is a dirty cop in the mix.

3. A Pretender-SG1fic that is part of an on-going series. Daniel and Jarod meet up at the King Tut exhibit in Ft Lauderdale. OF course something this is not exactly "Egyptian" in origin. If I can gigure out just what the mysterious piece is, I might actually get this thing finished. It's been sitting around for over a year!

4. A story set in the world of Time Lords and TARDIS's but with no Doctor. This actually came from a sim and characters created there. Holmes has been sent to bring back the renegade Moriarty (yes, I know, but there is an explanation in the fic) but has become saddled with a young woman from Glasgow, Jenna Watson. I just kinda faded. All I need here is a boost. I think this has been the one sitting around the longest.

5. A Firefly fic involving original characters from my TOC Files series. Two men from about 300 years in past arrive and help save River. Kaylee and Simon from arrest. Because of that, Mal takes them onboard. (More info and background will be given upon request)

6. A Remember WENN fic also following a series involving my main character from Eagle Chronicles. Steven Taylor had visited WENN twice before his involvement in the war, and now, before he goes back to Europe, he wants to touch base.

I also have a DW fic that could use a beta as well as a Torchwood that is really a sequel to the aforementioned DW fic. Any takers?

OK, now for the iTunes part!
1. In the day we sweat it out in the streets of a runaway american dream
2. I used to think maybe you loved me now baby I'm sure
3. Feel it closing in, Feel it closing in, The fear of whom I call,
4. On a cold winter's night as the winds blew across the wild moor
5. I'd like to be, under the sea...

Hmmm... I have this idea the quote is either Rosencrantz or Guildenstern from Hamlet?

And haven't I read part of 5? I say finish that one! :)

Yep, that's Hamlet. As to who said it, I'd have to look that up.

As for the stories. Yeah, you've read it. So has Co. But I need something to jump-start the brain processes. I need to be inspired before a new fic jumps in and demands attention.

Um, since Kit got the quote, I'll second her choice of what to work on, but I have no good ideas at present. So I'll play the ipod game.

1. Bruce, Duuuuude! Born to Run
2. It is not legal in NJ to have Katrina and the Waves follow Born to Run
3. I don't know
4. Hee, Red Molly doing Mary of the Wild Moor. I take full responsibility.
5. Those guys, again? Octopus's Garden.

Well, you already have a copy of the TOC/FF fic. ANd I'm not really asking what to work on next, I'm asking for someone to spark me, give me an idea, a creative boost.

As for the songs....the one you didn't get, I sent you some You Tube clips awhile ago. Bet you haven't watched yet so, you could've had all 5! :P

I knew you'd be happy when Bruce came on.
