Writer's Block: Words to Live By

What is your personal motto or favorite quotation?


This is a quote from an incredible epic story from a number of years ago, in the Lone Gunmen fandom. It has stayed with me all this time. I wish I knew what has become of Sally, though...the old LGM cronies have been so quiet the last few years.

Anyway, on with the quote.

"But sometimes the parents we are born of are not the parents that have made us."
- Sally Helmerich, INVICTUS MANEO, Book 3, Part 33

*nodnod* My original fandom - started with the old Ephemeral and Gossamer archives about ten years ago. *nostalgic sigh*

Yeah, that quote has always been on my mind. I've still got it saved on my computer. Sally is such a fantastic writer.

Oh, bless your heart :] (I'm a diehard XF fan, so I know where you're coming from.) Okay, if you absolutely gun-to-your-head HAD to choose...favorite gunman?

So what do we share so far? LG...Psych...Tin Man...and now Due South (I'm a new convert! And you're Kowalski/Fraser, no less!) That is quite cool.

YAY new convert to Due South! *giggles* Oh, there's so many boys to play with. And ooooh, yes, it's ALL about Fraser/RayK for me. The actors wanted it that way, the writers did, and they end up together in the end of the series. What more could you want? :D

Favorite Gunman? Langly. I know, it's hard to choose. I've known Bruce in real life for oh - five or six years now, he's my favorite for other reasons. I love both Byers and Langly (they're my slash pairing - wrote probably a hundred LGM stories when I was writing in that fandom, over half of them were Langly/Byers). But if I had to choose, it's always been Langly. *pets him*

You know, one thing that really impressed me was how unashamed they were of the Kowalski/Fraser relationship. I mean, there IS no subtext to that show when it comes to Kowalski/Fraser haha

But, it's funny, because even from the first moment (I actually read fic after watching like one clip...but I was a previous Callum fan--don't even ASK how that one started. So the fic preceded the show, pretty much.) I was totally RayK/Fraser. And I also loved that the ending was left the way it was. It was so hopeful...you knew that, no matter what, they would always be partners. That's such a lovely idea.

Plus, they're both so sex-on-a-stick!

YES! YEHEHEHES! I <3 Langly. I mean, I love Byers to death (and oh, Frohike, geez :] ) but I love how kooky Langly was.

B-b-b-but...you're serious!? How exciting!

Aww, widdle Langly.
I'm having Kowalski/Fraser withdrawals. Need moar fic.

Yeah, exactly. And I always kept this quote because Sally, the author, is someone I always considered an adoptive mommy. Hell, Anndie and I used to call her "mommy."

The sentiment is true for most people, I imagine. And it's especially true for those in the Tin Man fandom. DG with her robo!parents, Jeb losing his father and later (I wish we knew how MUCH later) his mother. Who knows about anyone else? :)
