Best Served Cold - Yes Griping about Fanfiction
Monday, March 6, 2006

Well, my first little chapter of the story I've had kicking around in my head is up and posted. Changed a bit from how I initially conceived it, but I don't want to reveal anything just yet.

It was shorter then I would have liked I think, but before I canonballed into the pool I wanted to get something floating around out there, get a little feedback, see if I'm on the right track.

It's my first fanfiction in, well, quite a long time. I sort of retired from the fanfiction arena, worked on my own stuff, took some creative writing, thought I'd moved on. But gorram it, I love my Firefly and I knew I had to do something. Keeps me busy, lets my imagination play out, and just maybe I can find a little niche for myself to keep me busy. Well, to anyone who decides to give it a whirl, I hope you like it.

My thoughts about writing on the crew? At first I stumbled through it a bit, I wasn't real sure I liked what I had going. I wrote a short scene in the dining room that was really meant to let me get a feel for Mal, then I went right to the scene with Simon. I felt of all the characters, I would have the easiest time writing him. I hope I did my job satisfactorily, though I don't know how I'm going to deal with River outside of paying much closer attention to all of her scenes. Without revealing much I will say that my original notion of how things are going to unfold had Mal in the center stage, but I do think that now that I've gotten these first few scenes written out, River is going to play a very large role.

Well, I'm going to see just how things go. I've got the confidence to say I've got a master plan, and I think I can tell it. Well, if you actually read this rambling, then I'm a slack-jawed idiot, surprised you would. I suspect more entries in my little blog here will deal with my experiences working on my fanfic and who knows maybe it'll even help someone else with their own!
