Just Writing: March 26, 2020

I keep thinking I have ideas beyond what has become my standard fare here, and then I never seem to make anything of them.

MiSTing: Over Night Medication

This is going to be another one of those posts with a long above-the-jump intro, because it's the best way I can think of to do this.

This is one of the old Mystery Science Theater things I found on that old laptop I had with me on vacation back in October. I'm still planning on posting the rest of the finished stuff I found, and revisiting some of the base material, like I mentioned in my first post of the year.

The relevant bits of history here are that this piece, Over Night Medication, was originally intended to be used as a short before one of the longer pieces I was doing at the time, or as part of a compilation like the one my character mentions at the start of this one.  I'm pretty sure I wound up doing this one on its own like this is because there was this thing called the Dibs List, run by the same guy who ran a MST3K fan archive called Web Site Number Nine, and I'd had this one on the list for long enough that I needed to take it off regardless of if I'd done something with it.  Therefore, we wound up with something that's not my best work ever.

Perhaps more interesting is that this was meant to be in continuity with the Digimon fan series I was doing with another author at the time.  That continuity doesn't mean much anymore because quite a lot of the related material has been lost over the last fifteen years or so, and even if I had some idea of what I was doing with it back then, I've since forgotten what that might have been.

I'll be posting this before I get to the main part of the series I still have because it's short, and I can't exactly remember where it was supposed to fit in the continuity I was going for.  So, anyway, here's the main work:

MiSTing: Franchise Opportunities

There's going to be a bit before the jump here folks, but I've got a little explaining to do before we get down to business here.

This is one of the things I was talking about in my first post of the year.  As you can tell by the title, , this is a MiSTing, a Mystery Science Theater fanfic.  I'm still kind of a fan, but I've only watched just shy of half the Netflix-exclusive episodes I know about.  Part of the reason for that is something I was telling my mom about when I was watching that first season.  This is part of a self-insert take on the basic premise, where a character based on the real me chooses to watch the movies or TV shows, or whatever was being presented.  The Netflix seasons reminded me a lot of my own work in that regard, even if what we were seeing on Netflix was funded by fans and headed up by Joel himself, who also had a small role in the series, outside the theater.  I've been meaning to get back to watching the new series again, and with any luck, I'll actually get to that before they come down from Netflix,

As to this actual post, I've got the older stuff I was talking about towards the beginning of the year, but before I get to posting that, I'm going to start with something much more recent, something that I actually finished back in December and have been meaning to get posted to various places.  Here and the newsgroup I mention at the end are the only ones I'm sure I'll be posting to.  I'll have to check the other site I mention at the end to see if they take one-offs and fan series like this before I go for that.

Anyway, here's the thing, below the obvious break here:

A Long Few Weeks

I've had a few major things going on lately and haven't had as much time for this as I'd like.
