Title: Twin's Story
Fandom: Matrix/CWS/Twin Souls
Characters: OCs, Smith
Genre: Action/Adventure
Rating: PG-13 for strong implied violence, mild language
Synopsis: Two members of the Gemini's Crew tell you their story.
Spoilers Serious Reloaded and Revolutions spoilers, and MAJOR Twin Souls spoilers. (But since I havn't written it yet, who cares? *smirks*)
Warning: The "twin" referred to in the title is NOT one of the Albino switchblade-wielding variety, though a couple of those do have a cameo. Fangirls, you have been warned. The title is in fact an Animatrix homage.

EDIT: Y'know, it JUST occured to me this would work better if I included the link to the actual fic. >_< Click on the title, and pay no attantion to the incompetant behind the curtain...

FIC: "A Little Child Shall Lead Him" Part 1 of 3

Hot off the press and onto ff.n:

Title: "A Little Child Shall Lead Him"

Author: "Matrix Refugee"

Rating: G/PG, will go as high as PG-13 in a later chapters

Summary: Post-"Revolutions": A once-powerful program finds himself wandering in the Matrix after the final reload, with only the last exile for a companion.

Note: Merv lovers take note: this is a very unusual fic featuring him in a surprising pairing. Why did I write this? Because I could.

FIC: "The Tidings Brought to Zion" -- Councillor Hamann's Thoughts

This is part of a possible series of short (~100 words) fics, all of them taking place at the end or just after the end of "Revolutions", all of them describing the thoughts and internal feelings of various characters when the war ends and the cycle of struggle between man and machine stops. I'm starting off with Councillor Hamann, since he's a really great character, sort of like the small-town homely sage or the crusty but kind-hearted high school janitor, but he never gets much fic coverage, which in my eyes is a terrible oversight... So, I thought I'd show his POV first:

"Under the Gun" -- Now Complete!!!

I just posted the last chapter of "Under the Gun", which can be viewed here:

Under the Gun: Chapter Nine

I had this written out for a while, but I finally typed it up today (I had every intention of posting this one last week, but I got busy getting ready for WorldCon, the sci-fi convention which was hosted in Boston, MA (not far from where I live) this year: I went in costume as Trinity (it was a homemade costume I rigged up with my typical black imitation leather trenchcoat, a black sleeveless bodysuit and black stretch pants), and amongst other adventures, I bought a copy of Glenn Yeffeth's "Taking the Red Pill: Science, Religion, Philosophy and 'The Matrix'"; AND the editor himself was at the dealer's table that had the book. AND... he autographed it for me!

But, it was good I waited a bit: I didn't like how the ending was turning out in the draft, so I tinkered with it and tightened it up considerably...

And I also created a little bit of "Detective Story" fanart. Nothing too fancy (especially since I made it with MS Paint, which is a junky little program), but I'm very proud of it:

New Fic from the Lady

Title: Getting It
Fandom: Matrix/CWS/TS
Characters: Exodus (OC), The Captain (OC?)
Rating: pg-13, language.
Synopsis: In the construct, just after being unplugged, Exodus doesn't "Get it".
Warning: Another fragment of a fic in process, this contains spoilers for my fic Twin Souls, which takes place in the same universe as tanathir's Conversations With Smith. Truthfully, however, this can be read just fine by someone only familiar with The Matrix.

Fanfic tinkering...

I'm working on a "Matrix" filk (ie. a popular song with the words twiddled with so it fits into a particular sci-fi fandom) based off "You've Got a Friend" by James Taylor (Okay, not the most Matrix-y song, but I was riffing from something a crazy friend of mine sang in the car when we were driving to see "Revolutions". And I'm kinda stuck on how to fix the line in the chorus:

"Winter, spring, summer or fall..."

After all... the only season in the real world is something akin to nuclear winter.

And I'm tinkering with another fic idea:

"The Secret Diary of the Keymaker" or "Any Enemy of the Frenchman is a Friend of Mine" -- I've noticed in a couple of shots in "Reloaded" that the Keymaker appears to have a small notepad in a pocket of his work apron... so I wondered what might be on that notepad... Maybe notations about what happened to him, how he got captured by the Frenchman, how long he was stuck in that cell, any unsuccessful rescues/escapes....

I'll see what I can do with this one once I finish "A Little Child Shall Lead Him".

Points Of Veiw: Challenge Me!

I had this odd idea, and I hope it will serve as a chance to streatch my writing muscles, because I do almost no first person, and I'd like to.

Thus, I present Points Of View:

An odd little self-imposed contest. Name me any scene from the Matrix trilogy or the animatirx, and any character that was present/is plausible to have been present at that scene. I will write that scene from the 1st-person POV of that character, and post it here as a new chapter.

The Gory DetailsCollapse )

Okay, there we go, please click here to give me your requests, thank you very much.
