I've decided to post Chapter 08 - A Dark and Sacred Night to FF.Net. It's still un-betaed, but the single persistent fan of the series has been begging since June, and I was afraid she'll give up on the story entirely if I dawdle much longer. ;)

I'll post it to [livejournal.com profile] hiddenrealms, too, but only after it gets beta read. Making the changes when you have to hand-code the stuff is just too much bother.

I also decided to reshape "Atlantis Café" and make it a series instead of one ungodly long story. So I declared Part 01 complete in its current state (it already has more than 20 parts already) and start Part 02 where I left it, whenever inspiration hits.

I know it's cheating, but it makes me feel better than having another never-ending, unfinished monstrosity dangling over my head like the sword of Damocles.

I've found this little ficlet among a few loose, hand-written pages. It has never been posted anywhere - now it's up on FF.Net and the welovezelenka LJ comm. It's really short, perhaps the shortest piec I've ever written: less than 600 words. Have fun!

Writing three Torchwood-related stories simultaneously is not an easy thing. Even if two of them are set in the same alternate universe. Especially if I don't even have the time and the peace to concentrate on one story properly.

Having said that, I'm making slow process with "Lost in the Past" - the "Gwen and Ianto trapped in 12th-century Welsh" story, which is crossed over with Brother Cadfael, with the still untitled Tosh romance that takes place during the 2nd series Dr. Who finale "Army of Ghosts/Doomsday", and I've just started a series of loosely connected Tosh-Ianto friendship stories with the overall title "Coffee Breaks". Yes, I know I'm insane, why are you asking?

Of course, this means that the two Cadfael stories still in progress - meaning "Vox Angelica" and "Brothers-in-Arms" have been set on the back burner again. Which is especially annoying, as I've finally managed to figure out who killed the much-disliked character in "Vox Angelica" and why. Drat.

Concerning the Whoniverse, "Atlantis Café" and "Auguries of Immortality" are overdue for an update, and I will eventually have to restart the "Wishverse", "Travellers' Tales" and "Torchwoodgate". Not to mention finish the one shot nicknamed "Comfort" (the actual title of it being "There's Nothing Wrong With Comfort Sex").

And then there's the "Birthright" series that got stuck in the middle of the third story, all that "Alternate Voyager" stuff that needs to be finished, the "Lost Years" series, where I still haven't translated two novel-length pieces from Hungarian into English, the Serina-story (BSG classic) that hasn't gone nowhere for quite some time, "The Toreador Chronicles" that only needs three more pieces to be finally completed, the "Out of Legends"-sequel that hasn't even been started yet, the second piece of the "Kansas"-trilogy that has been on ice for... well, forever... and... and and...

Did I mention the Merlin/Torchwood crossover?

And I haven't written any Tolkienfic for ages!!! *weeps*

Oh, and there would be the small issue with the 1,500 pages-long Grand Epos(TM) in Hungarian, the lost middle part of which ought to be reconstructed one day...

Too many stories to write, too little time to do so.

Chapter 03 - The Gathering has just been posted to [livejournal.com profile] otherworlds_lib. In which the Torchwood team meets some of their fellow expedition members, Meredith McKay gives a concert, Owen shows respect, Jack freaks out, and Gwen... well, Gwen is herself.

Enjoy!

You're also still welcome to contribute to the Torchwoodgate discussion. The more, the merrier!

Oh, and just in the unlikely case that anyone might be interested - we all know the hope is that which dies last, right? - there's a discussion over at [livejournal.com profile] otherworlds_lib about the Torchwoodgate AU. Or, at least I hope there will be, eventually.

Bascially, it's about what would be different in Atlantis if Jack Harkenss had the job of Sheppard, Suzie hadn't died and the whole Torchwood team were part of the Atlantis expedition.

I added a few very specific questions in form of comments, so that we can discuss the different aspects of this particular AU.

The first chapter of Torchwoodgate has been posted to [livejournal.com profile] otherworlds_lib. Just sayin'.

I really, really shouldn't spend my nonexistent time with brand new plotbunnies, especially not while I'm just a short paragraphs from bringing the curent story arc of 'Atlantis Café' to closure, but here you are. I just couldn't resist.

This isn't the whole expedition, of course - not nearly 150 members yet. So, suggestions are welcome.

So, this is the rough draft. Additions, suggestions, comments are welcome. Nothing is set in stone yet - well, very little, in any case. I'd love to discuss every possible affect of such a far-fetched AU.
wiseheart: (Janto)
Discussing the latest chapter of Atlantis Café with [livejournal.com profile] artemis10002000 gave me the idea of a fairly bizarre AU. Originally, we were discussing the possibilities of another body-swapping crapfic á la Special Unit 3, but then an even wilder idea occurred to me:

What if, in a different turn of events, the entire Atlantis expedition would become the responsibility of the UK instead of the US? And if the UK would send Torchwood and UNIT personnel, as those with the most experience with alien life and alien technology?
Read more... )
In any case, I think it could be a fun joint project, once the basics are laid down. After a couple of introductory chapters and a lot of discussion about what kind of aliens they'd find in the Pegasus galaxy - they could be the Wraith, of course, but it isn't absolutely necessary, as there are strange enough creatures in the Whoniverse, too - everyone interested could write his or her independent story about their adventures.

After more than a year, we finally managed to make a one-day-trip to our beloved Vienna again. We were supposed to go there last summer, but Mum got into the hospital just a day before. So, we were both very happy about it.

The day was great, although very exhausting. Stupid trains were late by almost an hour, it was very cold in the morning and in the evening, so I might get ill yet (hope I won't, though - took aspirin and will bake tomorrow, which provides a nice, warm environment).

In any case, we had fun. And I got a real Easter treat by Saturn (the electronics shop). I found the boxed edition of Atlantis' 5th season, which was the primary reason why I wanted to go. Aside from that, Babylon 5 and Andromeda seasons were on sale, so now I'm the proud owner of the B5 episodes I lacked from the 5th season. Granted, I had to buy the whole 5th season for that, but I got it for a third of the original price, so I call it a bargain.

The usual pre-Easter insanity was largely over already, but it wasn't so bad, honestly. We got a handful of small chocolate bunnies and bees (they're freaking cute), bought a raisin bread at Anker's (the best bakery chain in Austria), so that I won't have to bake it, too, tomorrow... and it's actually better than mine, the dough isn't that heavy.

So, I'm a happy camper. Easter decoration (painted eggshells) is ready, Easter eggs are coloured, Easter ham is cooked, Easter bread is bought - all I have to do tomorrow is to bake Ischler and Russischen Zupfkuchen, and the feast is being cared for. Yay!

It's a good thing, actually, as I've finished the next chapter of "Atlantis Café" and need to type it up.
wiseheart: (Zelenka)
One more day at school, and then I'll have five days in a row, in which I won't have to see anything and anyone work-related. Yay!

I've already baked litle bunny-shaped biscuits - yum! - that are supposed to last at least a week. Tomorrow, I'm going to prepare the Easter ham (with lots of garlic and cumin), and boil and colour the Easter eggs, as we're going to Vienna on Friday.

I really hope that I'll find the boxed edition of SGA's fifth season in Vienna. The series has finally run its circle on German TV, so they ought to have brought out the DVDs as well. I don't care what the price will be; I actually preferred Season 5 to Season 4, despite the fact that I love Carter and hate Woolsey. IMO, Season 5 had only one completely idiotic episode, and that's a good thing.

I'll never waste a single cent on SGU, though. Today's episode was extremely irritating again. While this time nobody stalked his or her loved ones in other people's bodies, and there was even a faint hint of actual sci-fi in the episode, for the greatest part, there didn't actually happen anything. More than half of the episode was wasted on people watching their alternate selves moralize on a video recording. I was very happy when Chloe Sue finally died - she should have died in the pilot already - but I'm sure they'll hit the reset button in the next ep, and he'll be back annoying us to death.

Anyway, on Saturday I'm going to bake my Ischler and give Russischen Zupfkuchen a try. Perhaps I'll bake a little lamb of almond dough, too, but I'm not entirely sure about that part. And then, I'll do the lazy act. Writing, reading, watching TV for 3 entire days - it'll be heaven!

Part 11 – Lockdown has just been posted to [livejournal.com profile] otherworlds_lib. I'll try to put up Part 12 tomorrow. It's already written and typed in, but there's only so much hand-codign I can do on a single day.

Anyway, as background research, I've been re-watching Season 5 episodes (recorded from German TV, as I don't own the last season on DVD yet), and I've realized something: I like it a lot more than I liked Season 4. Despite the fact that Season 4 had Carter, whom I love to pieces, and that I don't care for Woolsey.

But Season 5 has Carson Beckett as a recurring character again (well, actually, his clone, but who cares?). And the episode plots appeal more to me than those of Season 4. So, apparently, I need to get to Vienna some time, soon - I might find Season 5 there. *is hopeful*

Other than that, work is still eating me alive. Well, not the working part of it, but all the other things that barely leave us time to actually, well, work. Like the upcoming charity ball on frigging Saturday evening. I understand that we need to raise money and keep the parents interested, but this is one event of the year that I hate from the bottom of my heart.

EPILOGUE

There was a big party in the mess hall of Atlantis that night, celebrating the safe return of the Dream Team, although it was let down a bit by the fact that Dr. Zelenka firmly refused to even look at Dr. McKay, much less speak to him. He also declared his heartfelt wish to swap workplaces with Dr. Kavanagh and dedicate the rest of his life to sewer treatment, where he wouldn't have to see neither cocky pilots, nor head scientists with delusions of godhood, whose backsides he’d have to pull out of the fire after they'd tested said delusions.

His vicious reaction caused a bit of bewilderment, even among the Marines.

PLAN Z, PART 3

As the mediator had told them, the gut-wrenching trip through the Stargate ended in some enormous cage. It seemed completely empty, save from the Gate itself – and nobody was waiting for them.

“Are we not expected?” Radek turned to the mediator, but to his mild shock, his hand went right through the man’s arm when he tried to get some support, as if it didn’t have any substance at all. “Oh,” he said, understanding what was happening. “Interdimensional displacement has already taken place. Good that I’m brilliant scientist; otherwise I would freak out now.”

The mediator didn’t answer, and Radek vaguely remembered Dr. Corrigan having said something about the one-sidedness of the interdimensional experience. He’d have to read SG-1’s report about P7X-377, should he get the chance. Or talk to Dr. Jackson, in the unlikely case that they ever got back to Earth. It would be interesting to compare their experiences.

He asked himself how long the Furlings would need to realize that he was harmless, and how they could tell to begin with; and whether he’d have to spend hours in this cave, which was not a very inviting place, even in its current, non-substantial state. Bored and annoyed wasn’t even beginning to describe his state of mind, but he knew better than to complain. Making the ones with the power mad was never a good idea.

PLAN Z, PART 2

“Whoever these people are, they cannot actually be Furlings,” Dr. Corrigan declared some twenty minutes later. “The Furlings were one of the four great ancient races, aside from the Asgard and the Nox, who’d formed an alliance with the Ancients, thousands of years ago. At least according to the repository in Heliopolis, discovered by SG-1 on PB2-908, in 1997.”

“Well, Mr. Suelze here says that they’re a highly advanced people,” Dr. Weir pointed out. Corrigan shook his head.

“No, Ma’am, you misunderstood me. We know who the Furlings are. Were. Whatever. To our best knowledge, there’s at least one of them, a giant being made of light and energy, on P7X-377. It exists in a dimension close to ours and is called Quetzalcoatl. SG-1 made contact with it, back in 2000. You said your employers are ordinary, flesh-and-blood people, right?” he turned to the mediator.

“I wouldn’t call them ordinary,” Diggory Suelze answered with a crooked smile. “But they’re certainly as human and solid as you or me. I’ve heard the name of Quetzalcoatl mentioned among them, though. They say a being with that name – a powerful creature not of their world – visited Furlonia aeons ago and helped them to shape their civilization.”

Author’s note: As I not only generally suck at your regular action/adventure stuff but also never imagined Radek with either of the above guys, I was in real trouble when I got my assignment. So I’ve sent a distress call to Memory Alpha, my sci-fi Yahoo Group as well as post it to my LJ. The names of the generous people who’ve helped me to put the actual plot together can be read below.

I also used one of the unanswered challenges over at Wraithbait, where someone named Squid wrote:
Story should include Rodney, John, Carson, and Radek. Slash if you want. Threesome or more if you so chose. Whatever rating, yada...very forgiving structure so far, eh? Well, somewhere within the story should include the following statement from Radek: "You have found some Ancient impregnation device and have decided that I will be your brood-mare for wild-haired fey children with astronomical IQs, god-like ATA-genes, and sexy brogues?"

That gave me the basic idea, and things have spiralleddownward from that moment on. *g*

Thanks to: Lisa aka Firewolfe from Memory Alpha, who suggested the main plot idea, Squid who came up with the impregnation machine and the immortal Radek line, Jenn who gave her support, and Purpleyin who did the gargantuan Beta work and suggested the title. All remaining mistakes are mine – sometimes I’m just too stubborn to listen. My apologies. :))

Dr. Radek Zelenka never felt the urge to go off-world. The one step through the Stargate – the one that had brought him from the Cheyenne Mountain in Colorado to Atlantis – had been enough for him. He wasn’t the adventurous type and preferred to study random pieces of Ancient technology in his own lab.

Ten minutes later, the Genii guards were knocked out, unconscious, bound on their hands and feet with the rests of the rope the two scientists had managed to remove from themselves, and even gagged with pieces of rope, so that they wouldn’t be able to alert their peers. Kavanagh took their weapons, handling the mean-looking things with an expertise that impressed and frightened Grodin at the same time. This was the man people considered a jerk and a coward? Right now, Kavanagh seemed competent, level-headed and determined to save their asses, no matter the cost.

At the moment, Grodin actually believed that he would be able to do so. And wondered whether the other man was truly such a jerk as McKay and many others assumed. Whether Dr. Weir hadn’t been unjust to him. After all, when had Kavanagh considered anything else but the safety of Atlantis? Had it been really such a cowardly thing to say that risking the entire expedition for just six people is an irresponsible decision? Or had they all bought into the typically military mindset that wouldn’t hesitate to kill dozens of people just to bring out someone’s dead body from a war zone?

In any case, right in this moment, Kavanagh seemed to know very well what he was doing. The whole luring the Genii guards in a trap and pulling them out of circulation had been done with extreme efficiency and detailed accuracy. Just as the man always worked in his lab. Who’d have thought that the same unnerving pedantry would work so well on off-world missions?
