 I'm sure I'm really late to the party with this one, but did you all hear that ABC is apparently considering an Alias reboot?

I'm trying to decide how I feel about that.  

I've had some flirtations with fandoms since, but there is no denying that Alias was my one and only.  One could even say, S5 was a sort of reboot, so I'm curious what they'd do...would it be more like the new CW show Nikita, starting off years after the story we know, featuring new characters?  Or a true reboot, with a new Sydney Bristow, et al?  

It's odd to think of a show less than a decade old getting a "reboot", but I suppose it's a testament to the characters, and really, everyone involved that the suggestion was even made.

There's a funny background story to this one. I'd written Dreams and Illusions pretty much back to back, and wasn't planning on another intsallment right away. Then on the forums, there was this discussion in the Sydney/Sark thread about bathroom smut. If I recall correctly, I was sort of challenged to write some. I can do that, I thought. Short, sweet, to the point - or should I say, pointless except for the aforementioned sex.

Except apparently my characters don't do that. Noooooo. They have to have life changing epiphanies. So, Fantasies became the short, third installment of the Illusions series.

I don't have a lot of old fic. Mostly, we're just talking the Illusions series, and An Exercise in Control. So...six? Still, sorry to be spamming the f-list today.

Sydney can't stop thinking about what happened in Rome. What happens when she runs into Sark again, this time while on assignment? )

Apparently all of the old Alias fic sites are gone, and so is my old fic site. Huh.

It's been requested I upload all of my old fic somewhere, and here seems to be my default place at the moment. If this is new to some of you, just realize I wrote it back in 2003, when S2 of Alias was being aired. :)

Drabble - yeah, right! 

Fine, I give up.  All of you who read the first drabble, only to ask "But where's the sex??"  Well, here it is!  You all made me feel guilty for teasing you, you smut hounds!

So, yeah, this one's NC-17.  And not really a drabble, since it's almost 2500 words.  And un-beta'd since technically it's just a drabble!).  I proofread it, obviously, but sometimes I miss things.  hopefully nothing too bad.

I already know the general reaction of my f-list from a brief scroll through. Which means mine is an unpopular opinion, for the most part, and I'm ok with that. I really think there is still a lot of bitterness and ennui leftover from seasons 3 and 4, and I can't really blame anyone for that. We fans are a difficult bunch - please us, and we adore you with the fiery passion of a thousand suns. Disappoint us, especially after we've given you that adoration, and, well, there is that old saying. The thin line between love and hate.

In any case, I watched the entire two hours without ff through anything, muting anything, leaving the room repeatedly, or reading a book whilst watching. In other words, I gave those two hours my undivided attention. And quite enjoyed them. Oh, not with the passion I once held for this show. I don't think anything can succeed in reviving that S2 devotion. Still, it had all the hallmarks of a great Alias episode:

Marshall's humor. Dixon's mission accents. Jack's stoicism. Arvin being, well, Arvin. A mysterious item with a cryptic name to recover. Irina. SpyFamily on a mission together, followed by lots of angst and drama. I mean, come on. These were the things that made Alias what it was, back in the day.

Cutting the rest for spoilers )

Because I am now and always have been obsessed with Sark, and I am surely going to hell for writing almost-porn at work -- it so easily could have gone that way, but I managed to control myself. My boss's boss is in the office today, so I need to be at least a little careful. ;)

Not really a drabble because it's too long to qualify, but more of a ficlet.

quick comments - spoilers )

I am now officially all caught up. Wednesday can't get here fast enough. If anyone is interested, AOL has an exclusive clip from "Bob" that's pretty cool. Just click on Bob once the page loads.
rhienelleth: (sark dark - weareromantics)
Dude! I can't believe that no one told me Amy Acker was in S5! As an evil spy chick, no less. She's like Rachel's version of Anna Espinosa. Awesome. I just finished 5x04, in case anyone is interested.

Ok, to protect everyone from possible spoilers, including spoilers from the preview for next week's episode, btw thoughts so far )

Anyway, I am enjoying Alias again. Maybe I just missed it. Maybe it really is better than S3 and 4. More to follow as I watch more episodes.

Two favors to ask:

Favor #1: I now have all the episodes except 5x8. I can't find a torrent or a recent yousendit file or anything. Help!

Favor #2: Recent explorations into my old fic site added to once again searching for links to all my various fics have driven home the need for a single archive for all of them. (And thanks go out to Fred for maintaining that site for all this time and putting it together in the first place. I still love it, I just want to get everything together in one place.) I am webpage-making impaired. I can barely handle the customizations of LJ. Please please please pretty pretty please is there someone out there who would be willing to throw together something simple for me that I could easily update myself? I want to be able to upload my own fic as I write new stuff, if possible, and edit the old if I so choose (for instance, Illusions on rhienelleth.fateback.com has mysteriously acquired these random question mark symbols sometime in the year since I last looked at it, making it really annoying to try and read, and there's actually quite a bit of line by line editing I may someday do to that entire series, if the mood ever strikes me.) I can do basic html stuff, so I could conceivably html-ize fics before uploading them if necessary (for italics and stuff).

I'm not looking for anything fancy. I do really like the graphics on the current fic site for my Sarkney stuff, but I could live without them. I could even pay someone for their time and skills if necessary here. Just let me know, I cam willing to negotiate! Please?

So, I watched 5x1 last night, and am in the process of d/ling torrents of 5x2 and 5x3 that may or may not actually play for me. *sigh* How does this happen, people? I think I'm free, I think I've escaped the miasma of mediocre episodes that only make me angst for S1 and 2, and then I get sucked right back in.

Although susprisingly, the opening of S5 didn't suck as badly as I thought it would )

Is there a community for Alias episodes like so many other shows have? I'd reeeeeeally like to see some of S5 before Wednesday. Torrents don't work as well for me as things like yousendit with faster d/l times.
rhienelleth: (sark - bluebear_74)
Ok, fine. I give.

I tried, really, really I tried. I refused to add it to my Tivo Season Pass list. I deleted it without watching when Tivo rebelled and recorded it anyway. I cut the strings that have held me for two years to Alias, and then I had to go and read this.

Dude. Sark is returning for a possible five episodes...and he gets mostly naked. (That's not really a spoiler, right?) The thing is, if he should end up getting naked with anyone, I want to be familiar with all the players. I need backstory on the new folks.

So...who can hook me up? I'll Tivo any episodes from here on in, but if anyone out there has the previous episodes this season, and would be willing to send them to me...anyone?

And then there's the part of me that thinks this might be a huge mistake, sucking me back in to the swirling vortex of bad plots and wigs. *sigh* What can I say? I'm weak.

Spoilers for Alias S5 ala JG's pregnancy

Why do I still care? Enough that whatever hopes I didn't know I was still harboring just sank. I mean, I knew they were going to have to write her pregnancy in, I just hoped they'd do it...differently than the article implies.
