So, yesterday my sister pushed a bunch of papers at me and said, "Hey, remember this? You ever going to finish it?" And it turned out to be this story I tried (and failed miserably) to write way, way back in the distant reaches of time when I was lurking around in The Sentinel fandom. I thought the last vestiges of this story had died a cruel death a couple of years ago when my old computer decided it was time to pursue life as a doorstop. No such luck, apparently. It's. Um. Fairly abysmal for the most part. There are a couple of scenes that I'm still quite fond of, but I can see why I threw up my hands in despar. Twenty-one pages and I'd barely made a dent in the plot line.

Interestingly, at least two other people on my fl have made references to The Sentinel today. Coincidence? Or has someone been buggering about with the space-time continuum again?

Rework them into another fandom/another story; salvage what you can and save your pride and sanity!

BWAH! Nah. It started as Sentinel and it will DIE as Sentinel. I just can't bring myself to fuck with the characters that much.

My pride and my sanity are DOOMED.

I've been watching Sentinel lately, and watched "Love and Guns" today. Blair was so pretty.

He was, wasn't he? And Jim was so. Guh. HAWT. I should dig out the old tapes and watch them again. Or wait. They're out on DVD now, aren't they? Hmmmm. *goes off to check status of bank account*

The first season is, yes. That's what I've been watching. I had forgotten how funny the two of them were. I think I taped over most of the eps, with stuff like Lance and Jackson on "Pet Psychic," so I hope season two comes out soon. Unless it is already and I don't know it.

I just checked Amazon and it looks like only the first season is out. I'll definitely buy it -- gotta bump up those number so they release the next couple of seasons too. It's my CIVIC DUTY.

I have a horrible amount of Sentinel WIPs. I keep telling myself I'll finish them one day, but I know that day will never come.

Yeah, when it's time to move on, it's really time to move on, isn't it? But it's so haaaaard. I dunno. Maybe one day when I'm 75 and bored, I'll whip this thing into shape and post it. There's bound to be a Sentinel revival by then, right?

Also, dude! I didn't know you wrote Sentinel stuff. Did you post it? Would I have read it? Can you READ MY MIND to help you figure out the answer to that last question???

I can't read your mind, but I doubt you've read my stuff. TS was my first writing fandom and I was very much a non name back there. Plus, first writing fandom = not very good.

But, if you want a laugh, they're here
