Re: TBBS Fanfic Recommendations

Oh my! Do you have any other authors that you'd like to recommend? I was rather hoping that people would use this thread to recommend good stories that they had read, instead of promoting their own fiction...

Well, we are our favorite fanfic author and the nearly dozen assorted fanfic awards we've received would suggest that other people think our stories are good enough to be recommended reading. We checked the rest of the post and saw that around a fourth of the individuals who posted mentioned their own work, so we didn't feel that it would be out of line to list ours.

This was really just an FYI for people who have been reading our stories here so that they know about all of our stories in the order in which they occur (even the ones that are too naughty to put even edited versions of here ) and a link to our websites for their convenience.

Warmest wishes,
Whoa Nellie

that's not exactly the point though. the whole section of this board allows you to promote your own stuff. this one thread is supposed to be reader recomendations...

The way this thread has gone proves that most people are, in fact, their own favourite fanfic authors. I know that I am. But I feel that if my writing is truly that good, someone other than me will say so. And that would be a much more meaningful recommendation.

And by the way, let me use this thread for its stated purpose by recommending a truly excellent Doctor Who short story that I read recently. It focusses on Captain Jack's integration into the TARDIS crew, and does a great job of filling the gap between "The Doctor Dances" and "Boom Town".
I give you:

Re: TBBS Fanfic Recommendations

Well, unfortunately so few fanfic authors stray from the trendy fanon pairings that we have to write the pairings that we think are interesting in order to have good fanfic to read. In fact, we've only found one other author who wrote a Picard/Vash story. It's a wonderfully written story called Downing by Robert Salway.

That's one reason we're so proud of our numerous awards, especially the 2004 ASC Award for Best TNG Author. We don't have fans because of the pairings we write, we have fans in spite of the pairings we write because our stories are so enjoyable.

Re: TBBS Fanfic Recommendations

www.invisibleplanets.com features the works of Jungle Kitty, and her character of Captain Suzanne Brandt, a woman capable of standing toe-to-toe--or closer--to Kirk.

www.iglou.com/scarfman features the works of Paul Gadzikowski, a devotee of the good Doctor in all his incarnations, and crossovers of every stripe.

www.ussliberty.net is by Joseph Manno, and shows the adventures of one Captain Mantovanni, commander of the third Sovereign-class starship. A large and well-developed cast of characters make the era of the Dominion War and just beyond come alive.

Having done that, I now feel safe to advert my own site, for however long it remains up in its current form :

www.southroad.com/brightfame - The Rob Morris Story Archive

Among my stories are these selected 'gems' (I hope) :

The Plague - TOS/Ancient Destroyer AU - 'Operation:Annihilate' has come and gone, but all is not well, either on Deneva Three or on the Enterprise above it. Kirk's brother, sister-in-law, and infant nephew are all dead, and older nephew Peter Kirk is inexplicably still comatose. The people of Deneva Three did not survive the destruction of the parasites that had infested them. But is the tragedy yet done? If so, then why are the recent dead rising up, hungering for the flesh of the living? And how did they get on board The Enterprise? NC-17

TNG - The Great Man Stumbles - Picard undergoes a massive crisis of confidence while Riker deals with a new Federation member who no one can figure how they got in. PG

MASH/X-Files - Through Early Morning Fog I See - Was Colonel Henry Blake's death in 1952 really just a sad fortune of war, or was it part of a conspiracy that Mulder and Scully know all too well? And on whose side is elderly, grieving widower Hawkeye Pierce? Did his wife Maragret Houlihan merely disappear, or is the con artist playing all sides once again?

Voyager/Lost In Space - Along The Way - The TV version of the Space Family Robinson enter a dimensional rift and meet the crew of the USS Voyager. Will the Robinsons stay? They may not have a choice. They were more badly lost in their universe than they believed. Two of the Robinson children face a chilling fate if their isolation doesn't end. Add to all that the antics of the clownish Doctor Smith--who may not be the fool he seems--and a Chakotay haunted by Seska, wishing to make sure she's gone once and for all. Plus, is Janeway being haunted by a being whose destruction she ordered? Set just before 'Scorpion, Part One'.

DS9 - A Letter To Nerys - A year after WYLB, Kira recieves a letter from Kai Opaka that leaves her empty inside. Can her faith be rekindled?

Sarah's Modesty - An original piece detailing the trials and travails of a young 19th Century woman caught in a compromising situation. Written in the style of the novels of those times.

Hope you enjoy!

I find it amazing that, after being chided by the moderator for self-promotion in a thread specifically intended NOT to be self-promotion, that you defend yourself by offering even more self-promotion.

Neither Naraht nor Scatter are moderators. If RevdKathy has any objections to our behavior, we would certainly respect her authority, but as we've already pointed out, we're not the first, second, third or even fourth individual to mention our own work. We're also not the last.

Warmest wishes,
Whoa Nellie

Edited to change Starkers to Scatter. Sorry, wrong poster name.

I got a "page not found" error with this one, which is a shame, because I'd really like to catch up on my Doctor Who fanfic.

www.ussliberty.net is by Joseph Manno, and shows the adventures of one Captain Mantovanni, commander of the third Sovereign-class starship. A large and well-developed cast of characters make the era of the Dominion War and just beyond come alive.

Yes, I've seen this site too, and I would have to add my recommendation to yours. It's very professionally done, and impressively detailed.

EDIT: I just read your story, "The Great Man Stumbles," and found it very interesting. It seems that many fanfic writers tend to neglect season two of TNG, but you've used the setting extremely effectively. (Not to mention explaining why Pulaski left!). I only wish that I'd seen the episode of MASH on which it's based.

Re: TBBS Fanfic Recommendations

Sorry. Try members.iglou.com/scarfman for Paul. And many thanks on 'The Great Man Stumbles'. You could prolly rent the MASH DVD. 'Fallen Idol' is from Season 6 or 7.

My bad on that, but I stand by the sentiment. It's not like this forum has any shortage of venues for self-promotion.

exactly. this thread has been rendered utterly pointless.

unless of course you consider "whoooo look at me, i love me, who do you love?" to be on topic in a thread that is supposed to be about reader opinion rather than author promotion...

You left out your ASC Award winning and wonderfully funny "Pun-ishment" series. Any reader would enjoy those gems a great deal.

Re: TBBS Fanfic Recommendations

I love the idea of this thread and would like to help get it back on track with a non-self-promoting recommendation of my own: Star Trek: Illustrious by our very own Scatter. To be perfectly honest, I stumbled upon it quite by accident, but found myself absolutely hooked from the first episode.

Unlike other contributors here, this is written in script/screenplay format, instead of straight prose. I've heard that some may find that a tad difficult to follow but I, for one, thought it read quite nicely. The writing is good and tight colorful so that the characters truly seem to come to life on the page. The plot and storyline(s) are well thought out and integrated and, to be honest, just a lot of damn fun to read. I will be honest, with apologies to the author: there are a few elements some might consider "fanboyish", but I honestly don't find them a distraction and suspect that they were added intentionally with an eye toward what might be necessary to actually get a series version of Illustrious on the air (for instance, bringing back some familiar characters, a "cool ship", etc.) And seriously, I enjoyed these and many, many other aspects of this series. Besides, there's a little fanboy (or fangirl) in us all ... isn't there?

I can't wait for Season 2. :thumbsup:

*edited to more accurately reflect my thoughts on one point.*
