[sticky post] My Fics over the Centuries...

Hi,

     this will become my archive post for my fics, which will be updated as regularly as I can manage until I am up to date.

Fics old; and maybe unwanted...Collapse )

  Here are two fics written way back in the first months after Tara's death in S6 of BtVS was broadcast here in the UK.

Two early successful, I think, buffy fics...Collapse )

  These six stories were all written as fanfics for The Chosen, as opposed to 'in the chosen!verse'. The first five got posted to the website itself; the last has only been posted to my previous lj. Hopefully one day it, it and the several fics I have written for that verse, will get posted to the website too.

Fics written for Jet Wolf"s The Chosen...Collapse )

  These five fics were written in the year following me joining livejournal in 2009. I no longer have posting access to this journal so, if you have any comments on them, can you send them to me here. I hope to change this at some point, but they will eventually be re-posted. Other details, including character; 'verses etc will be added as time passes.
My first lj fics 2009-10Collapse )These are all my fics from 2011; a CSI drabble; a crossover and a NuWho S5 fic; but mostly Buffyverse stories.

My fics for 2011; the pace increases...Collapse )April 28th 2014
  Looked like 2012 was going to be a slow year, but I seemed to hit the afterburners in August; especially helped by the series I started for elisi but have yet to complete. Must get on that.

Whew! What was I taking in the Fall...Collapse )

Please, if you have any comments on the stories mentioned above; particularly if you have advice on changes to The Anyanka Solution and ideas as to what could be used for future Buffyverses from Amshel; then email me at kerkevik2014@gmail.com

  They will be most welcome.

  As anyone who follows my fics will know I have written an awful lot of stories about Dawn and her friend; only appearing in one act of one episode; The Body. 

  I have created an entire backstory; strill in progress for her, but this is the song that inspired the very first serious story; Lisa, My Reflection, set on the morning of Dawn's first day back in school after her Mom's death. This is the one they are headbanging to as they enter their first class of the day.

  Another one discovered because I listen to very few of the mainstream radio stations. I think it may well have been another discovered via the now retired Desmond Carrington, but I couldn't swear to that. 

  Wherever I first heard it, I do know I went looking for a video before the programme had finished; a programme which I listened to more than once in a row; because of this song. 

  It's a very modern version of what people imagine the sixties sounded like, which of course means it's nothing like sixties music at all.

  #5 is a ghost/horror/fairytale story and had a major effect on me, because it led, when Blake's 7 finale came around, to me writing stories; any stories to cope with it. 

  The vinyl album I owned; greatest hits, was lost amongst others taken before I moved up to Scotland. At some point, and I seem to recall posting about it, it turned up on You Tube, and the memory of the song was so imprinted in my brain that every note was as I recalled it.

   Before it is too late I thought I should add another song to this meme. 

   I've always experienced a sense of loss and resigned continuation from this, 

   Today,as I prepared to find this video again I found myself experienceing a bitter sense of the loss of  innocence about the world's progress to the hoped for future seen in worlds from Gene Roddenberry to Joss Whedon. 

   I've lost friends; fans of Star Trek; Star Wars; Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Doctor Who, because of their inexplicable support of Donald Trump. 

   The loss I sense will of course be powerfully familiar to far too many people in this world. 

   Anyway, here is #4 Dilerzim by Koma Berçem

   I defy anyone with any musical soul to dislike this. 

   *Arms crossed defiantly* 

  It's still, forty years later, capable of making me cry.

   #2 of these is not the first song I heard Billie Marten (she went by a different surname at the time as I recall), but when I was watching that cover I spotted that she had also performed an original song for ont'sofa as well. This is that song. These days at sixteen, she is performing regular sessions on BBC Radio; the latest on Radio 1, and is a much sought after performer at any number of festivals. 

   Most valued to me as  a guide to who she is is that she totally refused to follow the false-gold 'fame trail' of so many others; choosing to learn her trade and value her own skills, wanting to succeed because of her talent; not her marketing. 

   Actually she needs none; her talent is as great as any since the days of Joni Mitchell.

       #1 is here because the ,man who introduced me to the artist and her version of the song; Desmond Carrington, finally retired recently and took away another of the mainstays of my radio listening. 

    As I remember his saying, she was told that no woman was capable of perfroming this song adequately and, basically; though he stated it politely she told them, "Fucking  listen to this then!" 

    And since, as far as I'm concerned, her version is the only one worth listening to; particularly this one which is the one that he played tthose four, or five years ago. 

    More than once when I discovered this, and since, I've had this on repeat, and it has carried my troubles away. 

    So it seems a good place to start.

   Written by Jacques Brel about the Devil coming upstairs to check on his business interests, 

   Desmond Carrington played this on his very last Radio 2 show before he retired as a comment on the state of the world. 

   I cannot help but think he chose perfectly. 

   I can't think of anything cogent to say about the first of the Firefly cast to pass away. 

   In any case I think this http://kerkevik-2014.livejournal.com/136843.html says everything about how I feel today anyhow. 

   R.I.P. to Ron Glass and Shepherd Book. I guess we'll never know now.

Transgender Day of Remembrance.

 
  Before it's too late, and I've no idea whether there is even one here in the UK, time to mark this with at least a post. 

  


  I wanted to make a few comments about myself, but I never believed these things belonged to one day anyway, so I'll gather my thoughts properly. 

 Right now must be a terrifying time in the United States. It gets better sounds very hollow just now. 

 And that's just from this side of the atlantic. 

 How many people will die as a result of November 8th? 

 Not the ones who will deserve it, I'm sure. 

 Goddess Preserve Us All,  

 

 It's ok to be Takei,
