"Sarah Connor", Portrait Studies

Another little portraiture exercise, this time with Sarah. I haven't felt that I was getting her face quite right so this is me trying to get past that. I'm fairly happy with these, for now... *L* Feel free to tell me which ones are working, and which aren't, I'm trying to get better at portraiture. My specialty is more  animals/mosters.

Internet Radio - Nikki & Nora Femslash (fifth in a series on femslash in TV crime drama)

Dear readers,

Femslash For Fans at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/allaine is a call-in Internet radio show I've been hosting for the past four months, devoted to Internet femslash fan communities and the authors who write there. The goal is to give femslash fanfic authors the chance to be interviewed over the medium of live audio, and readers the chance to hear what their favorites have to say.

In the wake of the extremely successful discussions in recent weeks of popular femslash pairings in TV crime drama, like "Women's Murder Club", "NCIS", and "CSI: Miami", the series continues, airing LIVE on Thursday, October 1st, at 10 PM EST:

Beating the Odds #1 - Nikki & Nora, the Show That (Almost) Never Was, and Author Silk

In the first of a two-part series on unlikely femslash successes, we'll discuss Nikki & Nora, the biggest femslash TV pairing that was never on TV. Featuring two lead actresses as New Orleans police detectives who are partners in the bedroom as well as in the squadroom, N&N inevitably attracted a great deal of attention from the gay & lesbian media when UPN announced the pilot. That saved N&N from obscurity when UPN chose not to pick the pilot up for a full series. Rather than being consigned to oblivion, N&N took advantage of the Internet by releasing the pilot onto the Web, where it has been seen by hundreds of thousands of fans. One of those is the author katiepult, who wrote the ongoing "Trouble" series about the intrepid detectives played by Liz Vassey and Christina Cox. We'll talk to her about how a single 40-minute episode motivated her to author a series of successful, well-written stories which have lived on even longer than UPN itself.

I hope people here will listen in. If you can't listen live, you can listen later by downloading the .mp3 file. There will also be a live chatroom while the show is on. You can also go to http://www.blogtalkradio.com/allaine to hear all previous interviews.

You can also join the F4F mailing list at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/femslash4fansradio. There you can find show updates and polls, and you'll have the opportunity to volunteer your opinions on past shows and future guests.

Remember, the show airs at 10 PM Eastern Standard Time and runs until 10:30 PM. Please join us. We're all very excited for this occasion.

Sincerely, Allaine

Private Party

 Title: Private Party

Author: Alsike

Fandom: X-Men/Criminal Minds x-over

Pairing: Emma Frost/Emily Prentiss

Rating: R

AN/Disclaimer: Not my girls. The story referenced in the fic is Gourmet Club, by Jun'ichiro Tanizaki (it is so incredibly awesome, read it.)

Word Count: 969

Prompt: 014. Food Fetish

Apologies: During one of the three or four periods where they are actually almost dating.

I think this might be my favorite.

Fic: Cold (Cold Case/Ghost Whisperer/Gothika) Prologue+Chapter 1/?

Cold
by Erin Griffin
Fandom: Cold Case/Ghost Whisperer/Gothika
Pairing: Chloe Sava/Miranda Grey and Melinda Gordon/Lilly Rush eventually.
Rating: R for language, violence, murder, some scariness
Summary: Lilly Rush is given a case of a seventeen year old murder. The victim, Leslie Woods, doesn't want her murder solved, in fact, she wants Lilly stopped. In an urgent search for someone who could see her, she finds both Miranda Grey, still new to her gifts as a medium, and Melinda Gordon from her hometown in Grandview. Both mediums are determined to figure out what Leslie wants, and what exactly happened the night she died.
Disclaimer: I do not own Cold Case, Gothika, Ghost Whisperer and Allison Dubios, who is mentioned once or twice in this story.
Spoilers: I know that a lot of things will be different for the story. It doesn't follow Cold Case or Ghost Whisperer's formula to the exact, nor does everything that has happened to the characters get mentioned. This takes place after Jim Clancy has crossed over, after the movie of Gothika, and I would say after Lilly was shot.
Author's Note: The basic of the story came about from a Ghost Whisperer conversation I had with Alkimon, and he also asked the one question that had me think about this crossover.

--
I have never let anything
Have this much
Control over me

I work too hard to call my life my own
And I made my simple world
It worked so perfectly

But it's your world now
I can't refuse
I never had so much to lose

-Shameless, Billy Joel
--
Relationships end. That is sheer fact. Either by death, for the fortunate, or by heartbreak, cheating or sheer disinterest – the human body isn't built for monogamy.

GL - Movie Night - Part 20

Title: Movie Night
Author: critic2000
Pairing: Olivia/Natalia
Rating: PG-13 to start, for violence (non-sexual) and language. I am not any kind of a medical expert so if there are some glaring errors, please forgive me.
Disclaimer: I don’t own the Guiding Light characters, they belong to CBS and Proctor and Gamble.
Summary: This is set in the spring of 2009. I’ve taking some liberties with the storyline, mainly Natalia never slept with Frank, hence no engagement etc. So our girls have been just continuing forward raising Emma and getting closer to each other though they are still technically just friends, but that will change… This is a hurt/comfort story so they are headed on a rough ride.
Author’s Note: This is my first fan fiction so please be gentle. This would not have been possible if not for the persistent nudging and awesome editing of my beta/great friend croftlara. Comments are welcome.

Part 1 ) ( Parts 2 & 3 ) ( Part 4 ) ( Parts 5 & 6 ) ( Part 7 ) ( Part 8 ) ( Part 9 ) ( Part 10 ) ( Part 11 ) ( Part 12 ) ( Part 13 ) ( Parts 14 & 15 ) ( Part 16 ) ( Part 17 ) ( Part 18 ) ( Part 19 )

Of Mothers and Children - Untitled fic

 Tittle: Of Mothers and Children - Untitled
Author: storm_8
Fandom: CSI
Pairings: Sara/Sofia
Raiting: PG 13
Spoilers: None
Disclaimer: Ha! Obviously I don't own any of these characters except the original one's...
A/N: Not betaed, so all mistakes are mine.

Another piece about Sara and Sofia and their life with four children.

This particular scene has been nagging at me and I finally managed to write it down. It was harder to write than the previous ones and I'm not entirely sure whether I succeeded or not - I wanted to focus a bit more on the relationship between Sara and Sofia and show their closeness (is that even a word?? I can't think properly at this time of night... or morning....) and commitment to each other.

Lemme know what you think!

PS: This one is untitled, so if someone has suggestions please make them known...

Lunar Soul ch 2


Well it seems that my computer is hating me, considering it is in recovery mode right now.  Which do any of you know how long that could take?  I am kind of terrible with that kind of thing, so any knowledge you have, please throw it my way.  It is a long story, but I have a lenovo and it has think voyage software on it, and it is currently trying to recover things.  So I am a worried little mother hen.  So any kind of tips would be appreciated greatly.  But anyway, I had emailed this to someone, but I haven't gotten anything back from them saddly and this is the only document I have from my computer.  So I figure I should post chapter 2.  I hope you all enjoy it. 

Title: A Lunar Soul 

Pairing: Olivia/Natalia

Rating: R- for language and violence

Disclaimer:
  Characters, show, actors, etc. do not belong to me, I am not making any money so please don't  sue.  Thanks.

Author's Note: An AU in which Natalia and Olivia meet under different circumstances.  Some things still the same, some not.  Natalia's storyline is changed the most, she is a cop.  But that is all.  Self-Beta for now, so other then that enjoy!

Internet Radio - Fastlane Femslash (last in a series on femslash in TV crime drama

Dear readers,

(No, this isn't a repeat.)

Femslash For Fans at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/allaine is a call-in Internet radio show I've been hosting for the past four months, devoted to Internet femslash fan communities and the authors who write there. The goal is to give femslash fanfic authors the chance to be interviewed over the medium of live audio, and readers the chance to hear what their favorites have to say.

In the wake of the extremely successful discussions in recent weeks of popular femslash pairings in TV crime drama, like "Women's Murder Club", "NCIS", and "CSI: Miami", the series continues, airing Thursday, October 1st, at 10:30 PM EST:

Beating the Odds #2 - Author Blackbird Discusses Fastlane and Billie/Sara

In the second half of our two-parter on unlikely successes, we'll be talking about the short-lived FOX police drama Fastlane. Lasting only a single season, Fastlane eventually resorted to a ratings gimmick at a time when other dramas - Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Once and Again - were beginning to address onscreen kisses between two women. Targeting male viewers as always, Fastlane aired an episode where Det. Billie Chambers (Tiffani-Amber Thiessen) seduces burglar Sara Matthews (Jaime Pressly) on an undercover assignment. Hot women kissing, woohoo! While it may not have boosted ratings, it didn't stop fans from seeing the surprise potential behind the Billie/Sara pairing. Foremost among these was Blackbird, who wrote the epic fic "After the Fall" that explored Billie/Sara long after Fastlane faded from the airwaves, and more thoughtfully and romantically than Fastlane probably ever would have (or been allowed to). We'll talk to Blackbird about ATF and its unfinished sequel, "Reparations", as well as her one-shots and her possible plans to return to the series in the future.

This show will be a bit out of the ordinary. Due to scheduling constraints, the interview will be prerecorded and released at 10:30 PM EST on October 1st. The reason for the delay is that Part One of this special on "beating the odds" (a discussion of Nikki & Nora with Silk) will in fact air live from 10 - 10:30 PM on October 1st. The idea is that people will be able to finish listening at 10:30, then download the Fastlane show and listen to it then.

You can go to http://www.blogtalkradio.com/allaine to hear all previous interviews. You can also join the F4F mailing list at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/femslash4fansradio. There you can find show updates and polls, and you'll have the opportunity to volunteer your opinions on past shows and future guests.

Remember, the show will hit the airwaves at 10:30 PM Eastern Standard Time and last for thirty minutes. Please tune in. We're both very excited for this occasion.

Sincerely, Allaine
