I barely finished posting that chapter on when my laptop crashed. I hadn't had a chance to back up the work I had done (the full, MATURE, chapter) and all I had was what was on So I pulled that over to WORD and started trying to receate what I had previously written. Except my life got in my way. I recently quit my job to go back to school full time, which is eating up the hours. Also, my grandmother recently lost her second husband, and I am the only one of the grandkids who has a valid licence and a car, so I've been spending a lot of time with her. And to top it off my sister, who I've been sharing a house with for a few years, decided to move out at the end of June, leaving me with a house that's been in my family for four generations, no income, and a lot of concerns. Obviously writing fanfiction hasn't been at the top of my list of concerns these past few months. Hopefully I'll be able to get back to writing over the summer. I'll only be taking two courses then, so, if I get my house situation sorted out, I shouldn't be under as much pressure anymore.

The chemistry between John and Elizabeth is undeniable, though the way the show is dealing with the Elizabeth situation is depressing. Despite my best efforts to keep away from writing for yet another fandom (if you go to my web site or my profile on you'll see what I mean) I found myself writing what started as a missing scene thing from INTRUDER, the first full episode of Atlantis I ever watched. I wanted to write John's promotion scene, and I was thinking that maybe I'd write a bit about his reaction to getting the promotion. The next thing I know I'm going from online transcriptions, my own transcriptions, and live viewings of the episode on DVD to make sure that I have all the dialogue from the entire forty-four minutes exactly right and suddenly I have this 60,000+ novel on my harddrive begging me to start posting it even though I had only the beginning written and bits and pieces of the middle planned out. I have no self-control though, especially when it comes to posting stories that I've spent more time than I care to admit on. If you have a second please send me a review, if only to let me know that people are reading my work.
