Presidio Med: Ah! The shorty dialogue I wrote
back in April when the show was announced is bang on with Rae's character
being unhappy with her marriage & she tells Dr Nick she wants someone
to talk to her instead of at her or around her.
Cool! Now, if I can just get on their writing team, Dr Nick would be so
glued to the telly screen...
The Liberation of London: Book
Two, Part Three & Epilogue (& historical note) posted
The finale of Liberation is partly based on the events & weather of October 29-31, 1940 during the Air Battle of Britain. The last intensive daytime raids were on the 29th, but the weather was cloudy and drizzly. October 30 was wet & few, if any, bombs were dropped. On Halloween, Mussolini (perhaps at Hitler's request), said he wanted his Regia Aeronautica down in history as having flown over English soil during the Battle of Britain. The Regia entered London from Kent with a collection of archaic garishly colored planes (which probably made the RAF chuckle with glee).
The Regia flew over London, then...the Regia made a right hand turn and flew away, dropping a bomb here & there over Ramsgate before cruising out over the Channel.
Or did the Regia see something (or someone) which made them turn tail?
Axis Powers made vague references to 'shorter hours of daylight' and 'wet weather' as reasons for ending the daily bombardment of London.
UPDATES FOR JULY:
July 30, 02: I am writing better! In Book 2, Part 3, both dialogue and narrative have greatly improved.
And, with that thought, Ardeth's Quest: The Liberation of London is, after three months, finished!
JULY 23rd: "Ardeth's Quest" is turning into a full-length novel (about two hundred 8 1/2 by 11 pages). I am considering melding "Ring of Nuit" and "Quest" into one huge story. So be patient, the rest of "Quest" is forthcoming (see below).
Spoilers for Book Two, Part Two: Jonathan gets the spotlight on him--he's been away on business and you'll be surprised at what he's up to--and what he acquires!
Lady Donovan Phones Frank, Part Four uploaded July 17, 2002
Floopy floppy faces frightening fate: the disk failed & I thought I lost some writing, including an "Ardeth" Myth, but fortunately I had uploaded most of the disk to Tripod (hear, hear!), so The Myth of the Restorer of Ma'at wasn't lost in space...
Ardeth's Quest: The Liberation of London--Part Two, Book One (Chapters Eight through Twelve) & Intermission II (Ancient Egyptian poetry) are posted July 11, 2002. In my research, I found a helpful list of Tamasheqt (alternate name: Tamashek) words from the Tuareg language, which I have Ardeth speak. A Tamasheqt alphabet
Some notes on the research if you want 'em.
Ardeth's Quest: The Liberation of London is
trickling out...gosh, you all probably thought I forgot about Ardeth! The
first seven chapters plus Intermission I from Book One of Ardeth's
Quest is up June 17: Shifting
Saharan Sands. Ardeth's nemesis Set is doing a fine job in keeping
Ardeth in the Saharan Desert. "Liberation" fills in some blank days from
"RON" & we also meet Ardeth's remote ancestors...The Tuareg Lullaby
is from Michael Martin's "The Deserts of Africa".
I will add a 'links' section to link you to other UC/Ardeth/Antoine fanfic pages

Ardeth & The Rescue of Mara
(Coming Fall 2002 on CBS--THANK YOU!)
In this prologue fanfic, Nicholas is in Kyparissi, Greece, at his parents' villa. The Kokoris surname is thought to have originated in Kyparissi & Nicholas makes note of that fact to his beloved. Kyparissi is the place where Princess Diana took one of her last vacations and is on the eastern side of Peloponnisos, on the Aegean Sea.
Common confusion: on western Peloponnisos, there is a town called Kiparissia.
Nicholas has just made the decision to move to San Francisco to be closer to his married lover. He is on a cell phone with her. During their conversation, Nicholas tells her about an interesting case he worked on in the past, and she tells him about a recent case.
Forgive me if I should happen to call Nicholas "Frank"--I miss UC!
The gemstone cinnabar is mercury ore and often is found with mercury balls.

The Scorpion King Meets the WWF: a humorous look. Once I get some ideas for Scorpion King stories...Anyways, unlike the movie, in history during the real Scorpion King's time, there were no known stone buildings. The historical Imhotep is considered to have built the first stone building: the Step Pyramid at Saqqara about 2700 BC. But recently near Saqqara, there have been unearthed the remains of a stone wall which seem to predate the Step Pyramid. I have my own theories on the new discovery, and Evie, Ardeth and Alex will explain and expound upon my theories in "Ardeth's Quest: The Liberation of London."
