Story of the Moment
MII: Shelf Life by Infie G
Eight years after the events of Cold War, Alec's still in Seattle and is enjoying the calm. ...

And for anyone who might be interested, I'll be posting some X-mas word prompts in case anyone is looking for inspiration. Wishing you all the best leading up to the festive season! xx
Nov 17, 2018 05:41 pm
Congrats, Midnight :) I'll be another year older in January and I'm feeling it; I swear, my limb creak!

Hi Shay! Yes, it was in October :) Thanks for remembering. I can't believe I'm another year older. Hi Twinchy!
Nov 2, 2018 02:00 am
*waves back fondly* I hope you're all doing well. I miss you guys so, so much! Here's hoping for a breather to throw in a prompt fill for summer. It's barely into fall, right? ;-)
Oct 29, 2018 10:05 am
Didn't you have a birthday recently, Midnight? Hope it was a great one!!

*waves back* Hi Shay and everyone who's still around!
Oct 3, 2018 03:07 pm
Hey everyone! It's been a while. I honestly don't know where the time goes!! Just wanted to wave a friendly hello and say that I hope you're all happy, healthy and well xx
Aug 20, 2018 10:19 pm
LOL keep selling it to me...!
Aug 20, 2018 05:28 am
YES!!! I didn't notice that before but its TOTALLY true!
Midnight Parallax
Aug 16, 2018 01:02 am
Yes! Duke and Audrey! Nathan was such a snooze. I blame this on Jose Molina making them so similar to Max, Alec and Logan. LOL
Aug 9, 2018 08:34 am
I'm a huge Haven fan! Love the show, but I'm Duke/Audrey all the way :P
Aug 7, 2018 05:08 pm
It definitely does. And the plot could be top notch but if the characters don't carry the story... well, I'd rather have a better cast than plot. If you get me ;) So... I should watch it?
Midnight Parallax
Aug 7, 2018 12:10 am
I finished Haven! The series is a solid B series in terms of plot, but A in terms of characters... If that makes any sort of sense?
Aug 6, 2018 11:06 pm
Is it just me or is the heat making your brain melt, too? *hangs head* I feel like a lump of muddled blah.
Aug 1, 2018 10:12 pm
Be sure to let me know ;)

Jul 30, 2018 11:51 pm
I'm halfway through Season 3, and I'd say I preferred the first 2 seasons more. I'll pass judgment once I'm done. LOL
Jul 30, 2018 09:25 am
Huh! Interesting facts :) Have you seen much more of the series? What do you think so far? Haven's been on my 'to watch' list but I never got around to it!
Midnight Parallax
Jul 30, 2018 02:35 am
As it turns out, the Dark Angel writer who wrote the episode Haven was the executive producer of the series Haven. It explains the many DA vibes I get from the show.
Midnight Parallax
Jul 30, 2018 02:33 am
The episode Haven is about Max and Logan going on a vacation in small town with a secret past. The TV series Haven is based on a Stephen King story.
Midnight Parallax
Jul 30, 2018 02:30 am
Ok, so irony of ironies. I started watching the series Haven, and I'm like 'This sounds a lot like Dark Angel... I'm just assuming it's the same because of the S1 episode Haven...'
Jul 20, 2018 08:28 pm
Right! I'm officially putting it out there: All writers, rusty or otherwise (!) are welcome to take up the summer RH propmt suggested by Midnight Parallax: Summer Vacation, DA style!
Jul 13, 2018 11:37 am
Hope y'all are having a good summer (or winter, if you're Down Under and that region!!) Keep safe, hydrated and cool (or warm and dry!) Love ya!
Jul 13, 2018 11:36 am
And when the week from hell was over, we spent another week on the outskirts of hell, which was only marginally better...!!! Silver lining - extra cuddling and bonding time with baby girl!
Jul 6, 2018 11:44 pm
Ok, week from hell. *wobbles* I'mma need a breather, holiday, lottery win and a margarita or 6 to get over that. *cries* More than a competition, I need a beach holiday!!!!!!!!!!
Midnight Parallax
Jul 3, 2018 10:40 pm
It's ok, I was just throwing an idea out there that I was toying with.
Jul 1, 2018 03:04 am
Please note that I'm not saying no! just promoting additional ideas...
Jul 1, 2018 03:04 am
Bah. I've not been on vacation for a while so I'm not sure I'd do it justice :P What to the rest of you think, and/or what other ideas do you have??
Midnight Parallax
Jun 24, 2018 11:23 pm
I was thinking along the characters taking a vacation and what mischief they can get into? Like going on a cruise, a trip into the woods, or maybe even the first summer in Terminal City.
Jun 24, 2018 10:24 pm
Hmm, Midnight, can you elaborate a bit in a little more detail?
Midnight Parallax
Jun 24, 2018 06:39 pm
I don't mind a challenge. It's summer, so how about (summer) vacation as a theme?
Jun 23, 2018 11:46 am
We can deliberate on the suggestions and come up with a timeframe/deadline for submissions :) I think it would be fun even if just to have the group supporting and rooting for each other!
Jun 23, 2018 11:43 am
Admin and members? Anyone who feels rusty because they haven't written in a while or haven't had a cooperative muse! Any and all suggestions for competition guidelines are welcome
Jun 23, 2018 01:45 am
Haha, I love that idea!
Jun 21, 2018 04:08 pm
I don't know about most of you, but I've not really written anything substantial (or even inconsequential!) in over a year. Maybe we should have a Rusty Writer's Competition for the Admin
Jun 21, 2018 04:07 pm
I miss you guys!!
Jun 17, 2018 05:29 pm
Fab ideas for sure, Skye, although the weather should be a bit less stuffy by now. *hugs to you all*
Jun 7, 2018 09:32 am
Thanks for the tips, Skye!
Jun 3, 2018 09:24 am
Or put a wet facecloth in the fridge and give it to her to munch on. It's a teething trick but it works for hot days, too.
Jun 3, 2018 09:22 am
A trick we use is to attach an ice brick to the front of a fan. Also, we eat lots of ice cubes. For the babies, I have a bunch of gel packs in the fridge to put on their necks.
Jun 2, 2018 10:39 pm
I honestly feel we need an aircon unit in the lounge because it's so stuffy :( but who can afford it? *sigh* Little bub is lucky her room is one of the coolest in the flat!
Jun 2, 2018 10:38 pm
Thinking of you, too, Twinchy! Send my love to your sister and your dad, too xx
Jun 1, 2018 12:50 am
Haha, yeah, it's 19 degrees today and it's freezing! :P
May 31, 2018 06:10 pm
Skylar, good point about it being winter and still having much the same weather. hehe
May 31, 2018 06:09 pm
Please don't melt away, Shay sweets! I hope you're doing well. We've been thinking of you a lot. ((hugs))
May 29, 2018 09:51 pm
We've been having the craziest weather. So humid, colder nights (12-16c) & then anywhere up to 26 in the daytime! Our flat is so stuffy that we're sweating at 18 degrees & it only gets worse
May 29, 2018 01:18 am
It's winter here, but it's probably the same temperature you're experiencing :P
May 27, 2018 05:10 pm
Future-set DA scenarios featuring Ames White... count me in! Hope summer's come for all of you too and everyone's doing great! ((hugs))
May 24, 2018 08:59 pm
LOL, BadCat! I'll have to email them to you. You mightn't agree with me but I think it was certainly fodder for the imagination :)
May 23, 2018 04:51 pm
SHAY!!! You can't let me read something like that and not share pics!!! Bad girl!! (I'm totally with you on future!fics though... yummy!!)
May 22, 2018 10:00 pm
Just saw a recent [2017] photo of Martin Cummins (Ames White) and thought, "Huh, he's aged pretty well." And now I've a number of future-set DA scenarios turning over in my mind
May 2, 2018 11:26 pm
*hugs* :)
May 1, 2018 10:06 pm
Hope you all had a great May holiday. *hugs*
Apr 25, 2018 03:36 am
Hahaha, I'd watch it first, but good to know! I might be able to steer them toward something else. They liked Cloak & Dagger :)
Apr 22, 2018 05:35 pm
Well, in that case I'll give it some real thought. Thanks for the heads-up, girls. Not sure about Skylar's kiddies then though. ((hugs))

Apr 22, 2018 04:58 pm
I'd put it at PG, there's quite a bit of sex and violence, on par with Vampire Diaries if I needed a point of reference.
Apr 18, 2018 03:13 am
I thought it looked good, and my girls want to watch it, but I was worried about it being too scary for them.
Midnight Parallax
Apr 15, 2018 06:53 pm
It's only 4 episodes in, and I'd say it's more SyFy Channel than Freeform, so I'd recommend checking it out.
Apr 15, 2018 05:32 pm
Nope, haven't seen that one yet but I heard promising things about it. Is it any good, Midnight?

Seasonal Prompts - Winter 2018


Hello All!

It's that time of year again!

Goodness knows that it's particularly difficult to find spare time around the holidays to do anything just for fun.

That said, we certainly hope that some of you will find...

Summer Prompt - For Old Times' Sake

Well, it's official. There are more cobwebs in this community than members... *frowns* and I think it may be safe to say that a fair number of us are so rusty we can barely rustle up muster to move, let alone pen fanfic!

And so, we're hoping that there are at least a handful of you - of our awesome, much-loved community - that are willing to try your hands at some fanfic! We've missed you all...!...
