All will be friended if you leave a reasonably comprehensible comment to this post.

Russian troll-bots gtfo.




I've recently changed this layout to maximize the reading area for my personal use, mostly reading my RSS feeds. If you're reading my fic on a small screen and can't see all the text without scrolling, head on over to my livejournal, where the layout is still conducive to fic-reading. Or use 'light style', up in the navigation bar.



I have imported my Livejournal here on Dreamwidth. I'm in the process of reposting my fic without the associated comments from this journal. All personal entries that originated on livejournal, which had numerous comments from my friends list, will eventually be either friends-locked or completely private. If you would like to assert ownership of your comments on my journal, and wish me to remove your comments, I would gladly either a) delete your comments b) screen them so only you or I can see them or c) unlock those protected entries temporarily so you can delete them yourselves. My intention is to eventually ONLY have visible comments on fics that were actually left on this site by the commenter.

I mention this because some people find the transfer of your journal contents to Dreamwidth to be analogous to reposting on Facebook/Twitter, and I want to make sure that I respect my commenters' wishes. Dreamwidth allows you to search for and remove your last ten comments on public posts, and I think they are working on enabling you to delete all your comments, if for any reason you are uncomfortable with your thoughts showing up on a different site to the one you originally used. Your requests on this topic will be respected, regardless of whether you and I agree on the current situation, because I do think that the legal issue of who owns comments is evolving.



FAQ

Q: Vanessa, why did you lock comments on your livejournal? You love getting comments on your writing!!

A: It's true, I love hearing that someone enjoyed what I wrote, and I especially love the interaction with my readers, when we parse canon and ficdom for hidden meanings and themes. So yes, I lock comments over there with a heavy heart. However, I've made it as easy (and stylish!) as I could for you to come here to Dreamwidth to leave a comment. All fics on lj now have a link at the end to go directly to the same entry on my Dreamwidth.

Q: Do you work for Dreamwidth?

A: Nope, just like it here.

Q: Why are you such a nut about privacy? We would never do anything to cause trouble for you!

A: First of all, I like having a job. I'm also leery of shifting community standards regarding what is obscenity. I read news stories about teens being required to register as sex offenders for sending partially nude photos to their boyfriends/girlfriends. Despite the recent announcement that livejournal plans to roll back their comment cross-posting scheme, I've decided that my concerns about the focus of livejournal's business remain. (Please note that I have these same concerns about many other sites that I use regularly, and I've similarly taken steps to control my information on those sites as well.)

Q: I don't understand.

A: I've expanded on these concerns on the welcome entry on my livejournal.

Please know that I understand that the chance of an actual breach of privacy is remote, even for people who have taken less precautions that I have. However, I truly believe that each one of us needs to educate ourselves on the issues and make informed choices, wherever we go on the Internet. Think about how many times you've been presented with an agreement on the Internet, that outlined their privacy policy and your user agreement with them. Did you read it? Most of us don't. Do you routinely check the settings on Facebook, livejournal, Dreamwidth and other sites to make sure that your data is protected in the way you think it is? Most of us don't.

Perhaps I'm just an old fogy. I completely support your right to disagree with me.

Q: Oh, Vanessa, you're ridiculous.

A: Could be. Could be. But please respect my wishes. Please do not link my journal to Twitter or Facebook, and do not archive my fic anywhere without my permission. You may recommend my writing to a fan site, with a link and a short description.

Q: Vanessa, you're completely nuts, but I'd like to do something to show you I like your fics.

1) Have some potato chips or a fine vodka beverage on my behalf, since both have currently been prohibited (again) by my fine medical professionals (grumble, grumble). Prosit!

2) Donate a buck or two to Mars Investigations, without which I would never have been able to write my stories. I would also suggest that you donate to Veronica Mars Transcripts, which were also invaluable, but there isn't a link to donate there.

3) Write some fic yourself!

Q: Did you know you misspelled Kristen Bell's name all through The Year of Living Dangerously, Part One?

A: I do know, and one of these days I'll fix it.

Q: Vanessa, you idiot, you cast Mark Valley in two different roles in Part One and Part Two of The Year of Living Dangerously.

A: What can I say? When Mark showed up for his private audition, his performance was stellar on my couch. Besides, if RT can do it, I can do it. Just call it another one of my little "homages".

Q: You created a character called Rick Pickett in YLD2, but there was already somebody called Rick Pickett in Episode 21 of Season 2.

A: Sheesh. I'll give you double your money back, okay?

Q: Vanessa, I can't believe how ignorant you are. "Parla usted inglese" doesn't make sense in any language. You're worse than Starbucks!

A: Google it...dude.

Q: How old are you, anyways?

A: Old enough to know better. Young enough to still hope for a happy ending. Old enough to define a happy ending as good health, a few good friends, and work and hobbies that you love. Young enough to still sometimes not have a thick enough skin when people get me down, and to sometimes be a brat about it.

Q: I've compiled a list of all the original names for characters in your fics that weren't VM cast members, googled, and come up with your real name, home address, and date of birth.

A: Yeah, nice try. Now go work on world hunger.

   


All fics are NC-17, and are not intended
to be read by anyone under 17.




MY INTENTION IS THAT MOST OF MY FICS WILL ALWAYS BE PUBLIC. THE ONLY EXCEPTION IS ONE FIC THAT I MAY CONVERT TO AN ORIGINAL STORY, WHICH IS NOW ON FRIENDS-ONLY STATUS. SORRY, BUT THE PUBLISHING BUSINESS IS QUITE PARTICULAR ABOUT PUBLICLY POSTED STORIES. I AFFIRM THAT I HAVE THE RIGHT TO CONVERT ANY FIC TO A FRIENDS-ONLY STATUS OR TO REMOVE IT ENTIRELY IN THE FUTURE. IF I DO REMOVE A STORY, I ASK FOR YOUR COOPERATION IN NOT REPOSTING IT ELSEWHERE WITHOUT MY EXPRESS CONSENT. I WOULD DO THE SAME FOR YOU.

I love your work. I also think that you short-change, when you say that you do not "own" these characters. While Rob Thomas does own them, you have taken them, and developed them in a multitude of interesting and challenging ways. You have added lots of new characters; developed new adventures (YLD 1 and 2): brought insights into who/what/when/where/how and so on. I would also suggest that in doing so, you have a lot more freedom than the strictures of the tv show or the "inventor" of the characters. You have talent, and a unique "take" on these characters. The film has opened lots of potential new avenues that I am dying for you to develop.
By joining the military Logan has shown character; courage; focus, and has had to develop discipline, control, and concern for others. As a fighter pilot he would not survive without these. And he is in a highly dangerous world. In a way, he has developed a lot more than V., who has closed herself off in a pursuit of a career in law(just about the most boring and useless career in the world)- where it is all about billable hours and the constant invention of new things to sue about.
The film posits them rediscovering each other, and then he goes off on deployment. So, for the first time V is left behind to cope- she always took off and left him in the TV series. Now that she wants him seriously- what if a few weeks later he goes missing while on a flying mission? How will she react/handle? And she can't do anything about it? Or can she? Especially if the circumstances of his "missingness" are not clear? Secret mission? Deniable mission? Flying where he theoretically was not supposed to be? Plane gone down in the Ukraine, while he was supposed to be in the Gulf? Spying mission?
anyhow, lots of opportunity for you to wield your mighty pen....please?
