...aka, the lovely things we can discover in old files on our hard drives.
Before you read this lovely bit of geekiness, you must have the background for it. There's no way to appreciate it properly, otherwise. :-D
Not quite 3 years ago, I was staying with my parents and siblings for a while post-university. While there, I got my hands on a full collection of The Sentinel
, and proceeded to hook my 15-year-old brother on the show, so I would have another fan in the house. He would come into my room and read fanfic over my shoulder. Heh.
So one day, I was working on a fic of my own, and he came in and asked me what Blair and Jim were doing. I told him that Blair was dead in this fic (yes, I occasionally write such things). Then I went to get a drink of water. Note: DO NOT leave a fic unattended. You never know what might happen.
I got back to my brother seated at my computer, and a half-page added to my fic. He'd taken the last line I had written, and run with it in his own eccentric fannish way. I laughed myself silly, and then promised to show it to my fellow online fans...but haven't done so until now.
[please pardon the changes in tense and so on--I have not corrected this at all.]( Collapse )
Hopefully you all found this as amusing and weird as I did.
