Welcome to my LJ.

I'll likely only post fics, vids and random comments, so it's unlikely anything will be locked.

About my creative works:

Fiction

I have regular fics like most people but I'm also starting on a series of fics that begin the moment the Reboot movie ends and will move forward through the repairs to the ship and then through the original TOS episodes using the Reboot crew and timeline. That will eventually have it's own webpage.  This also includes a reworking of the movies Elizabethtown and Shag.

I will post fiction both in my journal and on my website, so choose your poison.

My under construction website for stories is

http://www.2-sidedcoin.com/susan/fiction

The link for the stories in the list below is to my journal posting of that particular story.

Vidding:

All of my vids are located here -

FYI: I lost a hard drive, a whole 300 gigabytes, and in doing so, lost both in process stories and vids. I'll be trying to rebuild and recreate, so some of these links won't work for a while.

About my fandoms:

I like a lot of fandoms, seriously, but I only play in a few of them. Mostly, that's due to time and energy. So, my three main fandoms to actually create in are:

Star Trek: I am an original 1960s Trekker and love TOS but also love Reboot. Though I've been in the fandom since the first night it aired, I am only just now starting to write and vid it. I play in both universes and will sometimes bleed them together. I'm a Spock girl...and write both gen and Kirk/Spock slash.

Sentinel: I love the Sentinel, am a sucker for great buddy stories and great hair. I'm almost exclusively a slasher in this fandom, Jim/Blair only.

Lord of the Rings: Loved the books as a kid, still do now. I'm totally an elf girl; I write the others as needed for my elf stories. My favorite character is Elrond, followed closely by Legolas. The films were beautiful and the actors great but they do not really match my view of either character, nor most of the other elves, to be honest.



Master lists

Fiction

The Sphere of Destiny Series - coming soon
This series starts at the end of ST XI and moves through reworkings of the films Elizabethtown and Shag before taking the crew out into their 5 year mission.  That mission will include reworkings of the original episodes and new adventures as well.  Along the way, you just might see Kirk Prime, among others.

Well, I participated in one ficathon and got only a few responses to my fic.  The person I wrote it for didn't even respond.  I decided to try again and was online to sign up for reel_startrek today and was, of course, 20 minutes too late for the movie I wanted.  I wanted Elizabethtown - since I'm already started on the fic, I'll continue, but now it'll just be mine, I guess.  I don't seem to have the best luck with fic lately.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Title: Where No Man - Redux 2/2

Rating: NC-17

Pairings/Characters: Kirk/Spock

Prompt: I was thinking- TOS story line with STXI characters. On an away mission, Their love is still a secret to everyone but the two of them, a little drama and comfort (like how Spock comforts Kirk in "The Apple"), but happy end like the show.

Warnings: None

Author: Erin Riwen
Beta: Jessie

Word count: 10,699

Disclaimer: I own nothing but a great imagination.  My apologies first for the lateness of this and second, the lack of a full beta.  My dear, beloved beta is having computer issues and so the fic is partially beta'd but rather than wait longer, I decided to just post it.  I realize that the sex scene jumps tenses but Spock insisted it go that way, despite my efforts to write it third person.  With luck, my beta will be able to help me with it eventually.  In the meantime, I hope Archmonkey will still be able to enjoy it - thanks to her for the wonderful prompt.

After our aborted attempt to cross over the galaxy border, the ship's condition is critical, heading back on impulse power only.Collapse )

Notes:

I'm an old school Trekker but am new to the online ST family.  I did this vid for newsiegroylover.  She posted a request with the fandom, pairing and song and I took up the challenge.  Feedback is appreciated.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Well, despite the major busy, the "Soulmates" Kirk/Spock TOS vid is half done.  I'm pleased.



Am amused by the thrilling of fandom over ZQ and CP in a car together.

I don't think I ever will be. I never seem to come up with anything that I think those outside my very immediate circle would care about.  I keep this mostly to keep up with a few friends that are not elsewhere and some writing/vidding prompts.

I am building a website that will be an eclectic collection of my interests - my genealogy, shag dancing, music, movies, anime, making videos, photography and my writing.  If you're interested in me as a person, that'll be the place to go when it's up to learn who I am and what I'm up to.  will post the address when I'm done.
 
 
 
 
 
 
and it really sums up so much about my way of doing things - it made me smile and nod...



Every time I look around the PC Doc HQ I'm reminded of technology that exists no more. 

I have pens for graphics tablets that have long since expired.  In the corner there's a pile of old green circuit boards which used to be modems, graphics cards, sound cards and SCSI cards which used to work hard for a living.  Now they are collecting dust. 

I have piles upon piles of old ZIP disks (disks which at one time used to cost me well over $15 apiece).  Somewhere is the ZIP drive which they belonged to.  Oh, there it is, I can see the USB cord snaking out of the cardboard box in which it lives.  In fact, that was my second ZIP drive, a USB version which I bought because the parallel port version was slow.  Oddly enough, the USB version was equally slow.  That ZIP drive's not been hooked up to a PC for years and lives in a state similar to that of Schrödinger's pet cat.  And in that state it's now likely to stay forever. 

Then there's floppy disks.  Hundreds of them.  Now all functionally obsolete.  Some have not been touched by a human hand in well over a decade. 

But it's not just hardware that becomes obsolete.  Data does too.  When I look through old archives I come across files with exotic extensions that have been long forgotten - .ctx files, .erp files, .cdf files. 

Each year (at around this time) I vow that I'll rid myself of this clutter, but it never seems to happen.  I could walk over to the cardboard box now and grab the ZIP drive by the cord and drag it out for recycling now, but I won't.  After all, it might be useful one day ...

Maybe next year ...

 
 
 
 
 
 
How sad...Father Osmond has passed away..and yet, is it really sad for a man who had 90 full years surrounded by so much love and attention?  I just watched the video of Donny and Marie at the airport and they spoke so lovingly of him.  I never met him, though I have met Donny - but I always admired the two of them for their closeness and the depth of their relationship.  When Donny spoke about their parents being reunited now, it was easy to see the depth of his faith. 

Given my last month or so...death is closer now than it used to be.  Seems strange to see one after another of your childhood idols grow old and/or die or watching those aunts and uncles that you thought would live forever pass away.  Really strikes home how I'm really not 25 any more and nothing lasts forever.  All the more reason to live every day to it's fullest...none of us get promised anything save right now.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Phew, what a day it's been so far.  Work is very busy and not likely to let up anytime soon.  Still, things are going pretty well and so no complaining.

We took the entire weekend off....no engagements, no schedules; we hardly even answered the phone.  We both slept whenever we needed to and played and relaxed and watched tv and it was so nice.

Frustrated with my premiere elements.  I have premiere pro but had started a couple of vids on elements, so was going to finish...but alas, something hiccuped and I had to reinstall the DIVX codec and when I did, everything in elements is upside down and backwards.  Pro will see the video correctly but won't relink in the original project...so the V for Vendetta vid that I'm working on I'll have to restart.  Frustrating but there were parts I wasn't sure about, so I'll just redo.  I've resisted learning pro, but it looks like now's the time.  Have a long to do list of vids I wanna do...another V vid, plus a howl's flying castle and a coffee prince or 10.  I really loved Coffee Prince and it so lends itself to fun vidding.

I found some fun writing communities but I will not join until I'm actually writing...I am so bad to join and then never write.  So, when my head wraps around writing again, then I'll pick what I wanna write and join....or just write the tables for my own pleasure and then there's no pressure to finish.  That works too.
 
 
 
 
 
 
I really need discipline - to write, to journal, to do things that I love to do but never seem to get started on.  How do people do it?  You work all day, then there's laundry, cleaning, cooking, etc...how do you get yourself to settle in and actually work on things?
