So I've been thinking a lot about Mike Trevino lately, as evidenced partially by the long post I did on Tumblr this past week. He's figured a lot into some of my recent Ginger and Lou pieces. It's been very interesting developing Mike and Ginger's interaction throughout the past three years and actually getting them to a place where they actually like each other and are comfortable being around each other. They don't confide in each other and probably never will, but Ginger finally apologized to Mike for the shooting (whereas previously he had only apologized to Lou).

I've thought off and on for years that I should probably make a Mike plushie to go with my Ginger and Lou plushies, but sewing is such a pain that I've always put it off. I decided I should really do it, so I used a coupon on Friday to get another pre-stuffed doll at Jo-Ann's for half-off and am planning to start work on the plushie this week, since I have materials for ears, hair, and pants already here. I'm already trying to start by finding a good picture of 1970's Joe E. Tata that I can use as a guide in making the expression, which I practice many times on paper before actually applying to the plushie.

On that, I'm running into some trouble, as it seems like most of his 1970's characters don't have much to smile about. I can't use a more recent picture as a guide. And the only 1970's shots I've got of him, save one, are side views. I'm going to need to get out everything I have with him guest-starring and study it for possible shots. If I don't draw the expression from an actual picture of the person, it never looks as accurate.

I finally solved my Amazon problem by waiting for another gift card that was just about ready to come and then using all of that plus a little cash to get the complete Cannon boxset. I waffled a bit on whether to really do that, since I'd end up having to pay a little more cash than before and I'd been hesitant to add that much cash. But the price was right and Cannon is a show we love in general and not just when darlings guest-star, so it seemed like a very wise investment. I don't have a lot of episodes recorded compared to how many there actually were, and I don't know if the ones I have might be cut. Some of them look like they might be. Crystal encouraged me to get the boxset and last Saturday I finally did, with no regrets. It came yesterday and Mom was thrilled. We watched a couple of episodes, including Don Knight's and the second one with Joe E. Tata.

Joe had a pretty big part, unlike a lot of the times when I see him. He appeared to work for an old man who did a lot of crooked things but had never been caught at it. I say "appeared" because he really seemed to be so much more than just an assistant. They'd been together for years; Cannon mentioned a drug operation that both Joe's character and the old man were involved in eight years ago. He spoke as though they were more like equals or partners in the operation, although I admit that could have just been my interpretation. But there was much more as evidence; it seemed like they lived in the same house, either that or Joe's character Higgins was just over there all the time. And when the nutcase in the episode sets a bomb in the old man's car and he's seriously hurt, Higgins is extremely distraught. He goes to the hospital and is there for hours waiting to hear if he'll be alright. Of course, an assistant or other employee could be that devoted to their boss, but all in all, I got the vibe that maybe even if he technically was an assistant, the relationship was more like a surrogate son and father or extremely close friends. We actually never learn the old man's final fate, but I like to think that he did pull through since Higgins would be so sad if he didn't.

In thinking about it in the hours since, I determined that there are two basic criteria that need to be met, in general, if I'm going to be intrigued by antagonist characters to the point of wanting to write about them. #1, For them to show some indication of caring about someone, and/or #2, That there is some indication that redemption is possible.

Of the two, #2 is the more important reason for me. That could manifest in several ways, including reason #1, or by them doing something decent, or even just by the idea that they will be going to prison and maybe they can be rehabilitated. In this case, while #1 is definitely present, there didn't seem to be any indication that either Higgins or the old man would be or could be interested in changing the way they handled life, so despite being curious and interested in their interaction, I seriously doubt I would write about them.

In the past I somehow got so intrigued by Gin and Vodka that I ended up being willing to write about them performing their jobs as assassins, although the stories were more about them as characters than about what they were doing. But I am still appalled that I did that. That just isn't me. More recently, when writing about Ecks and Wye, I did have to touch on their canonical jobs a bit, but mostly the stories were about them running for their lives after canonically betraying the organization and trying to start over and go straight. I still had to write Wye as having some darker views than I am generally comfortable with writing, but I tried not to touch on that as much and I did have him finally determine, at least, that the organization with which he had been affiliated did do things worse than most governments.

Sometimes I don't intend to get intrigued by a character and I end up doing it anyway because of what I'm writing about them to flesh them out. That was what happened with both Sephiroths (especially KH Sephiroth) and Snakes Tolliver. It also happened with Baby Face Morales. I had honestly originally intended that he would be the dark foil and counterpart to Micky and nothing more. I wrote The Return of Baby Face Morales with that idea in mind and I did not have the character show any redeeming qualities at all, that I recall. But then when I wrote the sequel and had to have Baby Face work with the good guys and later when I wanted him and Tony to patch things up, I got myself intrigued by the idea of him being more of an anti-hero and also developing his interaction with Tony. That was how and why I ended up changing how I wrote for him and started diving into his past and trying to flesh out possibilities of what could have made him such an angry and dark person. Some of it probably went into sob story territory and I might not follow that exact backstory now. I seriously doubt that I'd write about him at all anymore, really, both since his and Tony's story is probably as a standstill and since he really is a dark character and not one I'm that comfortable writing for anymore. If I were to do anything with those characters again, it would probably be to finish that hanging story about them and the Monkees held captive by mad scientists, and/or to keep writing that crossover with Kolchak. Tony Ferano would be the main character in the latter. I toyed a little bit in my last burst of Monkees stories about Tony and whatever goodness he still has in him. If I were to write about him again, I might further that angle and have him finally break away from Baby Face and try to get his life back in some semblance of order again. Even though I'm probably not comfortable writing for Baby Face, I have to admit that I do still love Tony. Jimmy Murphy's portrayal of him was classic.

Of course, Ginger is really quite a dark character too, so it's possible that in the future I will also not want to write about him anymore, either. But in his case, there was that actual chemistry I sensed between him and Lou (which could have been chemistry between the actors) and that is really what set the whole intrigue off. The fact of that chemistry combined with their interaction in general just fascinated me for some reason and led to me being unable to stop writing about them. And in their case, they really are trying to go straight after their stint in prison (something Baby Face would likely never do), so it's not uncomfortable writing about them. So I really hope that I will never feel differently about that, especially now that I've learned some more information that might possibly put a different spin on the elephant in the room of the shooting. I went into that in detail on Tumblr. http://lucky-ladybugs-lovelies.tumblr.com. Of course, as I say there, I will never be fully satisfied on that, but this is the best I can do to handle it. And in my timeline, as I mentioned, Ginger finally has apologized for that.

Bottom line is, I usually really don't want to like or get intrigued by certain characters, but sometimes I do because of those criteria.

Occasionally, I suppose, I can also get fascinated by a character for one other reason: if it feels like they got a bum deal in canon. Dutch Ingram would fall in that category, because the idea that he committed a murder was just shoehorned in, said by Ken Swofford's highly questionable character, and there was no proof it was true. I still don't believe it is, and that is the basis of my Rockford fic featuring him. But if it weren't for feeling like he wasn't the murderer, I doubt I'd write about him. He isn't really the type of character I like either. I don't think just the fact of Christopher playing him would have made me want to write about him, since I don't want to write about every character played by a darling.

And I need to decide what to do about another Amazon gift card I got. There's no chance of any other one coming soon, so with their changed policies I'm thinking maybe I should get a few books with this one. I considered that recent set of Kolchak short stories, which I want to get since I know the author of one of the stories, but I keep hesitating on getting it since I don't know if any of the stories deal with Tony (Vincenzo now and not Ferano, heh) and his and Kolchak's intriguing relationship. I know that in general, the prose stories do not. That collection of 43 short stories I have only has one where Tony really gets to shine, so in a set of 14 stories, there's not much chance Tony will have good screentime. The comics are better than the prose at giving Tony stuff to do, but I don't know if there are any graphic novels out that give him a lot of "screentime" since there are also some comics where he doesn't appear much. If I knew of any I don't have with good Tony content, I would jump to get them.

Other possibilities are Miles Edgeworth manga or Nancy Drew or Hardy Boys books or some combination of several things. There are also a couple of new Pony/Equestria Girls books I want, an artbook for the series and a new Equestria Girls novel that will be out a week from ... Monday, I think. I almost always ponder for ages on what to spend gift cards on, since it's a treat I only have several times a year and I want to make sure I get what I really want and what will be meaningful for years to come. Hopefully I'll come to a decision this week.

Crystal and I have decided to do a Simon-only Tumblr: http://simonoaklandtribute.tumblr.com It was her idea, and I'm excited to see this branch of the project go forth!

I am having thoughts of getting another of JoAnn's pre-stuffed dolls to make a Simon plushie, if I could find another one with a bit broader build, like I used for Lou. I've been seeing a lot of Simon this week, and eeee, just seeing him always makes me happy, no matter what role he's playing!

Only problem is, I'm not sure what character I'd want to make a plushie of. Lieutenant Schrank or Tony Vincenzo would probably be among the top choices. If I chose Schrank, though, I wonder what color I should use for the suit. I know it's supposed to be gray, but I always think of it as being more of a purple-gray mix. This icon really seems to tint it purple, and it's what I usually think of when picturing the character, since I don't often watch the movie. Plus, Lou has a gray suit, so I'd rather use a different color for Schrank.

Also, if I chose either Schrank or Tony, I'd probably also end up wanting to make either Krupke or Kolchak too. I don't know if I'd be up for making two, especially when I've even had thoughts of wondering if I should make a Mike plushie to be with the Lou and Ginger plushies.

I wish they did several kinds of face shapes; if they had an elongated face shape, I'd make a Richard plushie too. But I'm still embarrassed over having the wrong face shape on the Hamilton plush, so I don't think I'll try any more plushies with face shapes that wouldn't work well with the JoAnn's plushies.

I've also been thinking of making a Sunset Shimmer plushie, since I prefer her as a human and there will probably never be human plushies of the girls. A few fans have made some other Equestria Girls plushies, and I'm particularly in awe of some made by Lavim on dA. I would probably try to make Sunset similar in style to that person's. Any movie-accurate Sunset plush would require making the plushie completely from scratch, though, and not starting with a pre-stuffed doll. That is definitely a frightening thought. I would probably have to use the sewing machine for at least some of such a task, instead of doing everything by hand. I might ask Setsuna how much she'd charge to make one, but ever since I discovered I actually can do it myself, I kind of prefer that, since I don't have to wait for several months and I can have the proportions be what I'd like the most, instead of being anything chibi-fied.

I'm also working on my first Table 3 piece for [livejournal.com profile] 100songs. I decided to use Bridge Over Troubled Water, because I felt the first piece should be serious and profound and use a song that has special meaning to me and actually use the song's lyrics in the piece, as per how I opened Table 1 with Hallelujah. I'm excited with the plot I've chosen for it, and I'm also excited about several other ideas I have in the works. One will involve idiots crank-calling Ginger and Lou and singing Weird Al songs at them, until Lou finally decides to play Weird Al's song Phony Calls any time someone does that. The calls stop soon after.

I like to steal Ask memes from Tumblr and put them on LJ. And since for me Fall started on September 1st and I'm excitedly planning for Halloween, I had to do this one as soon as I saw it on an Autumn blog.

A:What are you being for Halloween this year? Twilight Sparkle! I'm planning already and I'm so excited to try to find just the right wig in a week or so when the Halloween stuff starts coming out.
B:Favorite costume from past Halloweens? I love the Rouge the Bat costume I've worn and slowly perfected over three Halloweens or so. I'm also pretty proud of my Marik Ishtar costume.
C:Do you still go trick or treating? I wish I could. I don't really want to go alone and Dad would probably be appalled if I said I wanted to go. If I knew someone who was going, I would totally go with them.
D:Top 3 favorite scary movies. ... Good question. You know, it may sound sacreligeous, but I don't tend to watch scary movies. Unless someone I love is in them. So we'll say Curse of the Faceless Man. Old 1950s cheese, but the "monster" seems a lot more sympathetic than some, and Richard Anderson is the main character! Also, I like The Uninvited, but really, it wasn't nearly as scary as people toted it as being. It seems like there's one other movie just on the tip of my mind. I wish I could remember. For now, let's just say The Night Strangler, the second Kolchak movie. Lots of Tony being adorable and lots of creepy stuff going on.
E:Top 3 non-scary Halloween movies. I don't tend to watch Halloween-themed movies in general, actually. But is there really such a thing as a non-scary Halloween movie? It seems like an oxymoron.
F:Do you watch Halloween specials on TV? No. I saw It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown on a friend's DVD last year. I ... honestly didn't like it that much. I found it preposterous that no one would give Charlie any candy. Adults were seriously so mean that they were giving him rocks everywhere? It would have been funny one time, but for him to receive rocks everywhere was just unreal. However, one thing I do like is watching scary episodes of my favorite TV shows, like Perry Mason and The Wild Wild West!
G:What was your first Halloween costume? Gosh, I don't remember. It may have been this superhero costume. I loved her rainbow hair on the wig.
H:Would you ever wear a "sexy" Halloween costume? No. I'm not the type, mentally OR physically. I don't want to attract the kind of guys who would be turned on by that sort of thing and I'd just embarrass myself.
I:Most ridiculous "sexy" costume you've seen? There's so many silly ones. It's hard to narrow it down to just one! I really think it's stupid when fairly innocent costumes are sexed up. Sexy policewomen annoy me a lot. I want to say I even saw a sexy nun once, but I can't remember for sure.
J:Would you rather go to a Halloween party or go trick or treating? Trick or treating.
K:Favorite candy to find in your trick or treat bag? Butterfingers! And Reese's Peanut Butter Cups!
L:Candy or other goodies that make you want to **CENSORED!** when someone gives them to you? I don't like Mary Janes too much. Or candy corn.
M:Any Halloween traditions? Have the fake Jack-O-Lantern lit up. Visit the cemetery. Get in costume and stay in costume all evening.
N:Have you ever been tricked on Halloween? I don't think so, thank God.
O:Costumes: make or buy? Both. Around 1995, I decided that they weren't making the costumes I wanted, so I was going to make my own. And I proceeded to do so every year after that. For several years I just cheaply made and colored masks and tails, if I was playing animals. Then I started mostly playing people and just using make-up if I was playing an animal. But I still have to buy some elements of all costumes. I have a whole box of wigs.
P:Have you ever pulled a Halloween prank? No.
Q:Do you believe in ghosts? Yes.
R:You're in a horror movie. Are you the final girl, the first to die, the comic relief, the skeptic, the smart one, or the killer? Heh, either the first to die or the skeptic.
S:You're in a zombie apocalypse. What's your weapon of choice? A scythe is the first thing that came to mind. Dunno how effective it would be, though.
T:Costumes: scary, sexy, or funny? ... Out of those choices? Scary, I suppose. My favorite costumes are specific character-based, though, so none of the categories really fit.
U:You're a ghost. How do you spend Halloween? Haunting an old house and trying to entice people to visit. And then maybe chilling at a Halloween party.
V:Trick or treating: how old is too old? When you feel too old.
W:Do you pass out candy on Halloween? Yes.
X:Do you go trick or treating even when it's raining? I believe I remember that I used to. These days, if I had a way to go out, I might go if it was just a light rain. I wouldn't go out if it was pounding down.
Y:Top 3 favorite scary stories/books. The Hardy Boys Ghost Stories, Nancy Drew: The Secret of Shady Glen, and any Debi Chestnut books about real ghosts.
Z:Trick or treat? Treats! I'm just too nice to trick people. I expect the same in turn.

Very saddened by Casey Kasem's death this past day. Although I didn't grow up with him as Crystal and many others did, I longed to be able to see Scooby-Doo for years before I was finally able to. And JP made me a couple of tapes of the Top 40 show. I was thinking I should get those out again for a listen.

Crystal mused in her post how Casey was somewhat responsible for her interest in the Monkees, due to the Davy Jones episode of Scooby-Doo. Meanwhile, I've mused many times how The Monkees are responsible for almost all of my current interests. How in the world did that happen? Behold:

- Because of The Monkees, episode 25, Alias Micky Dolenz, I became interested in Jimmy Murphy, who played Tony Ferano.

- Because of that, I started looking up all of his roles and finally decided to try Kolchak: The Night Stalker, a show I'd been idly curious about for years.

- Because of that, I got interested in Simon Oakland, whom I knew years before from Perry Mason, West Side Story, and I Want to Live!, although I hadn't taken note of his name.

- Because of that, I got back into Perry Mason while watching Simon's episodes.

- Because of that, I rediscovered my interest in Hamilton Burger/William Talman and added Wesley Lau (from I Want to Live! too), Richard Anderson (from The Student Prince), and H.M. Wynant (from a Nancy Drew episode; see icon) to my list of interests.

- Because of them and Simon (and Darren), I got around to trying The Wild Wild West, The Virginian, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Cannon, Mannix, Mission: Impossible, The Six Million Dollar Man, The Bionic Woman, and other shows that I liked enough to start watching religiously.

- Because of WWW, I discovered Christopher Cary.

- Because of that, I watched The Rockford Files and discovered Luke Andreas.

- Meanwhile, while watching Mannix, I finally tried season 1 and discovered Joseph Campanella.

All thanks to The Monkees.

I love Arte, I really do. And in real-life, I'm more partial to Ross Martin than Robert Conrad. But I have to admit, when it comes to the characters, I like Jim the best. He's more the type I gravitate to: silent and aloof with a dry wit and sarcasm, but still obviously, deeply affected when something happens to Arte. Arte, I love him, but his more humorous outlook and brand of womanizing I usually don't go for in a character. I love his techie interests, though.

It's pretty lonely sometimes, to prefer Jim in the Wild Wild West fandom. Almost everyone I run into likes Arte the best. I think I only know of a couple of people who like Jim best.

Of course, I love them both, and I just absolutely adore their friendship. Squeee. But I wish I could find where the Jim fans are hiding.

LOL, on this WWW message board I'm on, someone speculated that Jim fans are lesser seen because they're quiet and secure, like Jim himself, and don't often feel the need to speak up.

I also started thinking about Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin on The Man from U.N.C.L.E. I haven't seen too much of that show yet, granted, but I'm having a harder time getting into the idea of those characters having a close friendship. They care about each other and don't want anything horrible to happen to each other, of course, and yet I definitely don't sense the same sort of friendship between them as between Jim and Arte. It seems like most of what I see is cracking jokes over injuries and rivalries over women, the typical, tired sorts of things I see on shows a lot.

It makes me realize how unique Jim and Arte's friendship really is. They crack some jokes here and there, but there really isn't any rivalry over women to speak of, and it's so much more obvious how much they care about each other, especially once we get into the latter part of season 1 and on into the color seasons.

I keep hoping to find some friendship squee between Napoleon and Illya, but I wonder if much really exists. I do love the episode with Darren McGavin, though, and how determined Napoleon is to find Illya and save him from the madman. It could be interpreted more as him looking out for his fellow agent rather than thinking of Illya as a friend, but it is the closest thing to squee I've found so far, and I prefer to think of it as proof of a real friendship there.

It does look like there's some GIFs on Tumblr of more friendshippy scenes, so maybe hopefully my impressions are still mostly wrong and they are very close.

In any case, the U.N.C.L.E. show itself is pretty much The Wild Wild West in the modern day. It makes me toy with the idea of a crossover between the shows sometime.

Speaking of Darren McGavin, too, I had kind of thought he had dropped back to my second tier of celebrities. Ever since I realized how little Kolchak appreciated Tony in the second movie, I just haven't been able to feel the same about him, and I realized that Kolchak was a large part of my crush on Darren. I feel bad that I can't seem to get past that block now, as I really want to and wish that I could find a way.

But when I saw Darren on U.N.C.L.E., even though he was the bad guy, I felt a little thrill when he took off his sunglasses and I saw the classic Darren smile. It made me happy that the crush is still there, regardless of my wrestle over what I think about Kolchak.

I guess once someone makes it to my top tier, they stay there.

I have some thoughts on the recent My Little Pony series, but I'll post that later. Today it's this.

First off! What is your pen name?

Any previous pen names?
I don't think a pen name should be changed. Once it/you are established, you're known by that. Why change it and suddenly make it hard for people to find you/know it's you?

Of course, when it comes to various social networks and the like, I sometimes will use various names. But to post stories, I always prefer Lucky_Ladybug. And I include that as my LJ name too, so that people will hopefully know the insane one is me.

And what does your pen name mean?
It's the name of an old and silly but cute song covered by many people, but specifically Frankie Valli and the 4 Seasons. It's pretty straightforward, isn't it? It's a ladybug who is lucky.

Any alternate nicknames or pen names?
[livejournal.com profile] insaneladybug, of course. Usually used on journals. And always with the "Lucky_Ladybug" attached where it gives the name of the poster.

What fandom(s) do you write for currently?
Perry Mason, Kolchak: The Night Stalker, The Monkees, West Side Story.

And what pairings do you write for it?
None, unless they're canon, such as Tony/Maria for West Side Story.

Why not? Not everything has to be about romance, after all. Try branching out more. Platonic/gen stuff is great, too. And there's a serious lack of it in many fandoms.

What are some current projects of yours?
The Case of the Spectral Stalker, my current Perry Mason mystery. (The one I'm still quibbling about. Now I'm concerned I may lose some of my audience if I do the happier, albeit crazier, ending. And yes, I know the author should be happy first and foremost, but I won't be happy if I lose my audience, either.)

Lullaby of Silence, my three-way crossover with Perry, The Monkees, and Kolchak.

And a Kolchak oneshot concerning a mysterious, healing cloth.

EDIT: And of course, To Blossom As the Rose, the FF7 crossover with the two Westerns. I haven't forgotten about it. I know what should happen next chapter; the problem is fitting it in amid all my other projects.

Do you ever think your OTP will reach a happy ending?
My current OTP ... Rumpelstiltskin/Mr. Gold and Belle from Once Upon a Time ... yes, I certainly hope they will. The whole point is to bring back the happy endings, and they deserve one, too.

If you ever had to kill one of them off, who would you choose and why?
Why would I want to do that? Gah, they've been going through enough already.

... Although, I can't deny that I really hope that in the climax, Mr. Gold will be seriously injured stopping Regina/saving Belle, and then Belle will have to make like her animated counterpart and save his life with her true love.

Will your OTP ever have kids?
... That would be interesting, wouldn't it.

What do you see them doing post-canon?
I want them to stay in Storybrooke, as I've seen some post-canon stories portray. I think they have a better chance for happiness there than in fairytale land. Actually, it seems like that's the case for quite a few characters.

(Plus, I really really love Mr. Gold's character design and personality.)

If a character has multiple 'appearances', which one(s) do you use in fic?
The one I like best, baby. The question should really be, what if I like elements of multiple versions?

For Perry, I will always write about the classic TV series. No ifs, ands, or buts. The characterization is incredible and develops in ways it never did in other versions.

Sailor Moon is what I have a problem with. I think the good guys are better in the manga and the bad guys are better in the anime. The girls spend way too much time cooing over guys in the anime. And Rei is so mean, oh gosh. I've really come to love Sailor Jupiter and appreciate her awesomeness, but it's so annoying when she suddenly goes squeeing after yet another guy who reminds her of her old flame.

I just don't think I can bring my conflicting feelings on the different versions of Sailor Moon together, since it requires either abandoning one element or the other, or else smooshing everything together. I do the latter for YGO, but it's different since I really only like a couple of things better in the manga and can easily insert them into anime canon. For Sailor Moon, the problem is much broader and I just don't know how to deal with it. I don't think I will ever really be able to write for Sailor Moon because of it. I just can't decide how to unite what I like about the different verses. And since the fanfic category is pretty much dead anyway, I'd rather concentrate on current projects.

How do characters sound in your head?
Like they should. Perry is Raymond Burr's voice, Hamilton is William Talman's, etc. etc. (Unless I've been watching too much of something else and when I try to concentrate, someone else's voice is in my head, i.e., hearing Robert Carlyle's voice for Hamilton when I'm trying to channel William. Gah.)

Have you ever written/wanted to write crack fic (e.g. singing in a karaoke bar) for your fandoms?
No. Not unless everyone is in character. What's funny about it if it could be absolutely anyone? It's only funny if you can recognize the voices and personalities of the characters and you're watching them react to silly situations.

Well, I never did actually end up crying about Davy, but I was very badly rattled. I don't think I even realized how much until Thursday morning when I realized I didn't have the heart to write anything and projects were stacking up.

One such project was a post on my Perry blog. I strongly considered not posting at all, yet in another way I wanted to, to mention Davy's passing. So I cobbled together a short post on one of the topics that had been milling through my head. But you can tell I was upset, especially at the beginning and end. It probably looks awful.

I watched several Monkees episodes and plan to watch more in a day or two. The Prince and the Paupers was particularly melancholy, for some reason. But I loved watching it and the others; I had a good laugh.

And oddly enough, that mystery/horror crossover story with Kolchak from last year decided to wake up again at last. I didn't have the heart to work on my Perry chapter on Thursday, but then I got going on Lullaby of Silence again. I already had a few pages done of the next installment, and somehow I was able to breeze through and get the rest of it done. With the Monkees category on FF.net, I was able to post it in the Crossovers section. I'm also crossing it with Perry Mason. It works out too perfect, since The Monkees and Perry both take place in L.A. County. (Kolchak is visiting from Chicago, since I'm not following the Moonstone canon of moving him to L.A.) Pity I can only list two crossover categories on FF.net.

I tweaked the prologue slightly before uploading, so that a Monkee would be present in it. I figured that would be better, since I'm venturing into mostly new territory and these people aren't so familiar with my fascination for Tony Ferano (yet). I just finished uploading The Return of Baby Face Morales to FF.net, so I need to get going on its sequel. But Lullaby could really be read without having read those fics; there's just a slight reference here and there.

Lullaby is here: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7888603/1/

And I did finally get my Perry chapter done, too. There's a very intense scene with Jerry and his stalker. Now I have to hurry and finish fixing up a oneshot due on Wednesday and hopefully start writing a Kolchak oneshot I got the inspiration for.

I've only written one entry here this month. But I've been very busy with other writing, including the [livejournal.com profile] 31_days vignettes I was doing. I have them done now, which gives me a bit more time to hopefully work on some of the other projects, such as that Wild Wild West fic I finally felt ready to start. I loved doing the vignettes, though. I feel a bit sad they're done. Who knows, maybe next month will have another awesome series of prompts and I'll do it again.

This entry will be mostly fanfic ramblings, but I want to insert here that we're getting the Miles Edgeworth manga starting in May! I'm so excited. I hope it doesn't take place in the Apollo Justice timeline, though. It's just so discouraging to think about what happened to Phoenix there. Miles and Phoenix are meant to be courtroom rivals. Changing that is sacrilege, like setting Perry up against a regular rival other than Hamilton would be.

And we're also getting the Puella Magi Madoka Magica manga! I think it's the one that adapts the anime. I hope they don't drastically change things. When an anime series comes before a manga, the anime is almost always better. (Although I usually think an anime is better even when the manga comes first, haha.) If the manga keeps track of the story well, I'll probably buy it. Especially since I don't know if/when I'll buy the anime.

And FF.net has a Monkees category again! This is very big news. I thought we'd never have one again. I asked in the past why couldn't there be one in the TV Shows category, since that would be for fictional and not real people, but I don't recall ever receiving an answer. I plan to post all of my semi-recent stories (from six years ago on up), but I do not intend to re-post the original Monkees fics I did when we had a category before. Those look pretty terrible now. I may leave old fics on FF.net that are already there, but I'd be mortified to deliberately put up old fics in this day and age. Anyway, anyone who wants to read those can still drop in at my Monkees website.

At the new FF.net category I've been posting my latest revision of The Return of Baby Face Morales, which I fixed up a year ago. People are reading, but there's no reviews. Ordinarily I wouldn't bother posting on FF.net with no reviews. But since this is an old fic and I have got reviews in the past, and I'm trying to build up a brand new category, I figure I'll keep at it for a while. Maybe if I'm persistent I can get some more activity going in the category and eventually some reviews.

This will hopefully force me to finish my revision of the sequel, too. I stopped on it last April when I was writing Kolchak, I think.

Which reminds me of the Kolchak fic I stalled on many moons ago. There were reasons for that. One was that I couldn't find out what happened to the giant worm-things that had become my inspiration for the worms in the story. No one would tell me and Googling did nothing for me. And I forgot to look for the book the handful of times I was in a bookstore. Without knowing what happened to those worms or how the people got away, I couldn't figure out how the worms in the story should be defeated.

Another problem was that I wasn't sure I really wanted to write about Chicago being decimated by a bunch of giant worms. But I couldn't seem to find anything else scary enough that's supposed to be able to cause amnesia. I wanted something existing (well, existing in someone else's fiction/myth/legend), rather than for me to make something up. Fairies ... just didn't seem to cut it.

A third problem was that I was having a hard time keeping the story going. I kept wanting to prematurely have the scene with Kolchak and Tony meeting up in Wal-Mart. There just wasn't enough material to keep the story afloat for long.

So in the end I threw up my hands and wondered what on earth I was to do with it. I still wonder. I'd still be very interested in writing Kolchak, if I had a decent plot.

I would also be very interested in finishing that West Side Story fic about Schrank and the kids he was mentoring, if I could get back on the ball. I open it sometimes and blankly stare at it. Even knowing where the plot was going doesn't help me figure out how to write the rest of the chapter. It's rather exasperating and frustrating.

On the Perry front again, I just got up chapter 6 of the current mystery. Jerry's stalker finally has a large speaking part (although he had a scene last chapter too). I'm a little concerned about keeping this plot rolling, as well. But I think I'll be able to make it. I do know more or less what's supposed to happen, and two of the plot twists have been thrown into the mix now. Also, since I have a timeline, one of the sub-plots is how some of the characters are still trying to heal from the previous venture, The Case of the Broken Ties. So that's interesting. I'm glad I didn't make things a quick fix, with everything hunky-dory for everyone at the end. All things considered, I don't think I could have done that and felt good about it. Things take time to get over. And some of the characters were pretty devastated.

First and foremost: Does anyone have links to the very old Phoenix Wrong parodies? They were so hilarious. I'm not too interested in the newer ones that have been coming out; they're largely dirty all the way through, compared to the old ones being mostly clean, if not completely. I used to laugh at almost every clip, but in the recent ones I'm lucky to find one thing to laugh at.

My order arrived yesterday! At last I was able to read two more Kolchak Moonstone graphic novel stories I've been interested in for some time: Lambs to the Slaughter and Eve of Terror. I may review them on Amazon later. For now, I just want to say that according to the Moonstone canon, it looks like Tony is (or was) married. There was a kid killed in a drug-related shooting and Kolchak did an article on it. Tony praises his work but then becomes emotionally pained. Kolchak realizes why and says he's sorry for bringing it up. Tony says "Not your fault ... my boy ... went the same way." It was heart-breaking; he looked so down-trodden. He and Kolchak have a quiet moment and then Kolchak says they should go out for a drink like the old days. Tony says in the old days, Kolchak insisted Tony pay. Kolchak says he still does. It was a wonderful friendship scene. And it's begging to have something done with it. It's the first thing from Moonstone that I've really wanted to bring into my TV show canon, or at least tentatively experiment with. There's a ficlet I'm thinking of writing. I'm thinking along the lines Crystal suggested, that the son's death dissolved the marriage, because it really does seem like Tony is a bachelor by the time of the movies/TV series. Maybe I'll try it as a disconnected piece and then decide if I want to incorporate it into my full canon.

I also got a West Side Story book and the first Phoenix Wright manga (a real manga, with cases!). The West Side Story book I've been eagerly devouring as I skip around in it (I rarely read books like that straight through). It gives character summaries and it was very fair, and I think kind, to Schrank, which I was thrilled by. But it seems to mostly focus on the Broadway production, with little being said about the movie version by comparison. And a lot of what is said about the movie version leans more towards the negative, at least from what I've read. I also want to get another book, one that does focus more on the movie version, and even tells how Simon Oakland ended up part of the cast. (One of the co-directors was Robert Wise, and he specifically wanted Simon after directing him in I Want to Live!)

The Phoenix Wright manga is very interesting. It plays out like a combination of Detective Conan and Perry Mason. When characters are introduced, they seem to use the same format as Detective Conan, with a blurb showing their name, age, and occupation. And the trials are filled with intensity (and kooky witnesses, as per the games). They even have Winston Payne as the first prosecutor encountered! And everyone looks IC. Phoenix is wonderful as the straight man with sardonic comments, Maya is her typical ditzy self, and Larry is nuts over his latest girl. LOL. Miles has not appeared, but he is thought about, and Phoenix comments that he hasn't seen Miles in a while. That's usually a signal that something exciting is planned, and I know for certain that Miles will be in volume 2. And I learned of the manga's existence shortly before that volume will release in America! If it comes out on time, it will be out in less a week. I hope I can get it right away! Even if B&N has it in stock on time, I cringe to think of buying it there. It's $10.99, and I'm sure they won't offer a discount (unless by some miracle I get a rare 10% coupon). On Amazon, it's only $8.79, but I'd have to wait to buy other things with it and get free shipping. Oh, Borders, why wouldn't anyone help you stay afloat?!

And I watched an amazing Wild Wild West episode. I've been devouring episodes lately, and it was a show Mom liked and watched back when it was on, so I'm having a ball sharing my new love of it with her. It's just what I love: friendship and adventure and mystery and crook-fighting and hurt/comfort! And the romance level isn't high enough to get on my nerves. It's just perfect, as far as I'm concerned. The steampunk angle is just the icing on the cake, too. I just love Western stuff and steampunk adds a whole new level of awesome to it.

The episode I saw was The Night of the Death Masks. The whole ghost town angle, and the wax dummies that keep popping up with the masks, were so creepy! And it was heart-breaking when the crooks manipulated things so Jim thought Arte was the crook due to Arte being forced into a disguise while unconscious. They have a gunfight and Arte ends up thinking he shot and killed Jim when he comes over closer.

Well, the whole episode was extremely plunnie-inducing. It would make such an intense role-play or fic. I think I might write a blurb of Schrank and Krupke having gotten into a gunfight like that, with the end result being Krupke thinking he's shot Schrank. I don't know yet whether he really would have or not.

I don't think I ever quite realized how fiercely loyal I am to the cast of the classic Perry Mason until the other day when I attempted, out of utter curiosity, to watch a clip or two of The New Perry Mason from the seventies. I found the theme sequence completely dull, except for having some of the writing on book bindings. And I just couldn't wrap my mind around the actors playing Perry and Mr. Burger. They were fine as far as their acting went; I just couldn't comprehend them as those characters. The only episode of that show that I want to see is the one with Simon ... and of course I haven't been able to find it.

I also have no interest in the TV movies from the eighties and nineties. True, the original cast was present ... about two-fifths of it! Everyone else, sadly, was dead. They had to bring in someone to play Paul Drake's son (also named Paul), and I thought they said in-canon that Paul was dead. And sacrilege, in one of the movies they had someone else play Hamilton Burger! I can't picture Raymond Burr's Perry interacting with another man's Mr. Burger; that character was brought to life by William Talman. I have to admit, I'm morbidly curious to see how that went, but I'm sure I would groan and moan and find it not the same at all.

So I concluded that I am fiercely loyal to the cast as it was on the classic show, during the golden seasons: Raymond Burr, Barbara Hale, William Hopper, William Talman, and Ray Collins. I'm curious about portrayals prior to this era, in movies and on the radio, but I doubt they had the same amazing qualities as the TV show. The original books kind of portrayed the characters as two (or one) dimensional archetypes, from what I've heard. It was the TV show cast that really fleshed them out over the years. And there was just such an amazing chemistry between Perry and Mr. Burger; I am endlessly fascinated by their interaction. I doubt the books had that, especially since the author detested Mr. Burger. He made Mr. Burger basically the stereotypical prosecuting attorney with an axe to grind. William Talman, by contrast, made the character so human.

I've somewhat wanted to write at least one fanfic, especially since it seems no one has tried to explore Mr. Burger or his relationship with Perry, but I've never had any ideas. An idea did just pop into my mind a short time ago, which would pretty much be an update of one of my standard ideas done over for the Perry Mason fandom. It would involve Mr. Burger being found dead ... or at least, everyone thinks it's Mr. Burger. In actuality, he would be on the run and trying to get back to Los Angeles from somewhere else. I have no idea who would want him dead (probably plenty of crooks) or how anything would pan out. And I doubt I would actually write it. But I wanted to get a record of it down so I wouldn't forget.

I also did have a vague thought of writing an AU for Misguided Missile where Caldwell is not the one to die, but I really doubt that would get written. I just don't care for AUs and in general find them a waste of time to write, since my mind is occupied with thinking "This isn't the way it really was and I'll never be able to fully enjoy writing this because of that knowledge." Plus, since the trial was a court-martial, Mr. Burger wouldn't be around.

Meanwhile, instead of pondering on these things, I need to get back to other topics, such as chapter 5 of the Kolchak fic and chapter 3 of the Schrank fic.

Hoo boy.

I am so jittery and nervous. That dark West Side Story oneshot I was working on I got up ... but I tinkered around with it and threw in a twist later on that I had not planned on. That changes it from being the flat-out tragedy it originally was. And it's funny, it's that aspect that makes me worry someone is going to throw rotten fruit, rather than to think that people would get upset about the tragic elements. Part of me wants to separate the pieces and just leave the dark part, but I don't want to do that either because I love the later part as well. So I'm stuck with posting it as-is and wanting it that way and yet being very conflicted at the same time. Mama Mia. http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7118730/1/

I should try to look over part 3 of the multi-part venture and see if I think it's done. I managed to add some very interesting things, including Schrank monologuing and how some of the main Jets really feel about what happened to him.

I also know, I think, how the rest of the Kolchak chapter will go. The Wal-Mart meeting won't be yet; I need to fit in some other clashes first. I'm anxious to get back to that, which I can hopefully do now that the oneshot is done (unless I decide I really have to somehow separate the parts).

The [livejournal.com profile] 31_days theme for tomorrow interests me a great deal. Paraphrased, it says something like When you choose to do the right thing, life becomes easier - no distractions. I wrote up something a few days ago that I was idly thinking of posting for it, but I'm not sure. It's a fairly rough, unpolished ficlet and probably really needs to be fleshed out more. There is a character death. And the manner of death maybe needs more expounding.

Basically I took an RP scenario from a recent RP with Crystal and altered it for the ficlet. In the RP, ghosts are angry and are throwing trunks at people intruding in their domain. Schrank tackles Sarah Nade out of the way of one of them and is struck by one of them himself. In the ficlet, the punk is nameless (but is not intended to be Sarah Nade) and I didn't want anything supernatural to be going on. So the gangs fooling around in the old house have caused it to be even more unstable, and somehow the punk jars something that tears a heavy beam loose from the ceiling. Schrank still tackles her away and is struck himself. Krupke then explodes in grief and anger at the punk for having got them into this situation and Schrank killed.

If I do post it, it will probably just be at [livejournal.com profile] 31_days for the time being, since I'm trying that other oneshot at FF.net and I need to get up the next part of the multi-part fic.

... Why is it that, even though I still love both Darren McGavin and Simon Oakland dearly, I seem to have flipped from crushing the most on Darren to crushing the most on Simon? [livejournal.com profile] dangelos_song had it right when she said I had it bad for Simon.

Actually, I can pinpoint when and how it mushroomed (even though it had already been heading in that direction). It was the second time I watched The Night Strangler and realized how much Tony was trying to do for Kolchak when Kolchak just didn't seem to recognize or appreciate it. From that point, I never could quite feel the same about Kolchak. And though I'd liked Tony for ages before that, he grew in my admiration and esteem afterwards. That seems to have expanded into a huge crush on his actor.

I do think Kolchak changed by the time he and Tony got to Chicago. He was still aggravated by Tony, but somehow he seemed more appreciative than he did in the movies. And in the comics, he has flat-out acknowledged that Tony has tried to help him many times. In the story Pain Most Human, after Kolchak ends up absolutely devastated by something that happened to him, he tells Tony that he's been a "good, decent, and much misused friend." He also says that he's tired of getting Tony fired and for Tony to get away from him while he still can. Tony outright refuses, exclaiming, "Have you lost what little sense I thought you had?!" He goes on to say that he hates it when Kolchak gets human and tells him to sit back down; they can't have all of New York thinking they're having a lovers' quarrel. (I giggled so much over that.) And it's a comfort to Kolchak when Tony is adamant about staying with him. Eeee, that story has such wonderful friendship squee! Sometimes Moonstone really pulls off some amazing things.

One thing is certain: you can't have one without the other. Their dynamic is awesome and unmatched. Darren and Simon brought those characters to life as no other actors could hope to do. And even though I've switched to crushing the most on Simon, I still adore them both and thrill to watch things that either of them are in.

... And the Black Sheep Squadron episode Forbidden Fruit is awesome and squeeable. Yes.

I finally decided I'd fixed up the second segment of the West Side Story fic enough that it was done. I just got it up. http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7084983/2/ I think it's going to be four segments overall. I need to add some more to the third segment before it goes up, probably three to four pages if I leave the break where it currently is, right after the terrible argument.

And I am amused; during a conversation with an officer in the third segment, Krupke mentions that he previously worked at the 53rd Precinct in the Bronx. I love those throw-away references to other shows. That one is a nod to Car 54, Where Are You? (which I've seen more of and love), but I'm probably the only one involved with the fic who will know what I'm talking about.

I did end up starting chapter 4 of the Kolchak amnesia fic, the other day when I temporarily ran dry for inspiration on the West Side Story one. I'm still trying to decide how long it should be overall. Maybe in this chapter, after the scene with Kolchak and Siska that opens it, I should skip ahead a few days and have some more monologuing and end the chapter with Tony and Kolchak meeting at Wal-Mart. I'm so excited for that scene.

The West Side Story fic I'm tinkering with was going to go up yesterday, in full. But while proofreading I decided it should be split in two. Then, while looking over the first half, I decided that No, it should be in at least three parts, maybe even four. So I split it again and put up the first segment.


Right now I'm fleshing out the second segment with another scene. Then I need to decide what else it might need.

I knew I had the nagging feeling that the fic needed something more. I'm relieved that I realized it before any of it went up. The split is going to make it a lot better; I'll be able to devote more to it and not worry that one lone segment is going to get too long to hold anyone's interest.

Once I sort things out with this fic, I hope to work on chapter 4 of the Kolchak fic. This West Side Story fic has become such a personal challenge to me to get done, that I'm not sure I can concentrate on the other until I accomplish that.
ladybug_archive: (micky_gun)
Even though I have so much trouble attracting interest on any pieces I write for West Side Story, I still really want to finish that story I keep tripping up on. I guess that means I really must be writing it for me. And I think by this point, it's become such a challenge that I want to finish it just to prove I can.

I still wish I could get some comments on the ficlet I did with Schrank and Maria, but someone did Favorite it, which thrills me. I've looked through some of her fics too, and I really like them. She includes Schrank in one of them (albeit briefly) and portrays him well.

And I finally did finish chapter 3 of the amnesia fic, too. It was fun; I even got in a quirky person for Kolchak to talk with. I'm unsure of how long this fic will be overall. Several days are going to pass, but I'm not going to detail each and every one of them.

I also, at long last, figured out how to insert another scene with Mel Barnes in the ghost town fic. I have that updated now, but part of me is wondering if by this point I really do need to make it a chapter fic, and to expand on it even more if I do. I just keep having this nagging feeling that I'm not done with it/that it could be, or even should be, longer. Thoughts?

And I finally saw Tangled! One of my aunts gave it to Mom for her birthday, because she'd said Rapunzel is one of the few fairytales she likes. I absolutely love and adore it. I think it's Disney's best animated offering in ages! The plot is lovely, the songs aren't annoying, and the characters feel real.

I think it was a really good idea to not have the animals talk for once. Another of my favorite Disney movies, Pocahontas, also features animals that do not speak human language. In both films, they conveyed so much by their expressions and their actions that talking wasn't necessary at all.

I also liked how Rapunzel's parents didn't talk, either. The few times they appeared, their scenes were so very powerful and poignant without a word being spoken. I think words would have actually detracted from the impact of those scenes.

And something else I am utterly thrilled about: I don't recall one objectionable and/or vulgar thing. I am so sick of movie and TV producers and writers thinking that there must be scatological humor in anything marketed towards kids. I hate it. And as much as I enjoyed Toy Story 3, there were even a few things in it that I was rather disgusted by. Tangled is a complete breath of fresh air for me.

Speaking of Toy Story, after watching all of the films, I am utterly bewildered that in spite of agreeing that the plots of 2 and 3 are much deeper than the first, the original Toy Story is still my favorite film of the trilogy. I feel like there must be something wrong/shallow with me, that I still like it best. Nostalgia certainly plays a part, but I don't think that's entirely it. I think it may be more that I like how things were when they first began, with scads of adventures with Andy still ahead of the toys and Andy still a kid.

On Monday morning a plunnie hit me in the head for a short fic where Schrank and Maria are conversing post-movie. I wrote the first draft within less than three hours. After giving some time to smooth out the wrinkles, I finally picked a title I liked and got it up.

I know there are at least a couple of people on my Friends List who like the production, so if they're interested in reading, it's http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7061895/1/

I don't really expect any interest to come from among people roaming the FF.net category itself, although I wondered if maybe Maria being in this one would make a difference.

I think the category needs a character filter. It's popular enough.

I decided I should get an icon for the category on my fic journal. And, since I don't like to use the same icon across two journals, I decided to make one. The only problem is, I like it so much I kind of want to use it on this one now, where it would get more use.

I advanced a bit on chapter 3 of the Kolchak amnesia fic, too. Hopefully now that this ficlet is up, I can devote more concentration to the Kolchak one. I'm not quite sure how I'm going to do the climax in it, but I am really anxious to get to a scene where Kolchak and Tony encounter each other in the grocery store. It's been one of the most distinctive images for the fic since the idea first appeared. I've been writing a lot of scenes out of order, so I might do the same for this one. Chapter 3 opens at a point where I find it difficult to focus for very long because I'm more interested in other scenes. Hence, that's probably one of the reasons why I got so distracted by the West Side Story ideas.
ladybug_archive: (micky_silly)
I guess I'm not the only one who considers Schrank a favorite character. http://www.totalfilm.com/features/50-coolest-movie-cops/west-side-story-1961 They made a mistake about his accent (it's Brooklyn, not Jersey!), but that's a minor quibble here.

And that fic is on the move again. I realized maybe I was trying to usher the plot too fast (I'm still trying to figure out how to slow down the first scene). I also realized that if I didn't do a Krupke monologue, I was wasting a great opportunity for something interesting, since I could have him muse on Schrank, how long he's known him, etc. So I've started writing that. And now Krupke is having an encounter with Anybodys, who showed up to check on things because Ice is worried about how Schrank being shot will fare for them and the other street gangs in Manhattan who didn't have anything to do with it. I can't say this fic will ever get done; it's certainly far from it right now. But it's still encouraging that it's actually moving.

In the amnesia fic, I debated back and forth over whether Tony should fire Kolchak in chapter two or three. I finally went with two. The majority of the story happens after that (and Kolchak and Tony will have several more encounters).

Thanks to Crystal, I learned of a Kolchak graphic novel I had to get hold of. It came yesterday and I happily devoured it. Here is my review of it on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Kolchak-Tales-Annual-Featuring-Shadows/dp/B004PPZP0G/ref=sr_1_43?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1306984711&sr=1-43

I forgot to mention that I watched an episode of Have Gun Will Travel the other day. I was half-asleep while watching it and I couldn't quite make sense of what was going on. I wasn't that impressed with the episode at first, and then there was a twist near the end that made me decide I definitely wasn't crazy about it.

But then there was another twist at the very end that cancelled the one I hadn't liked. It made me squeeful and happy and made me decide I liked the episode after all. (And it woke me up enough that I went and rewatched some of the scenes to better grasp what was going on.)

The episode is the last episode of season 1, The Statue of San Sebastian.
