Presidio Med: On Call again in the New Year--Two times a week for twice the fun!

I can't post stories about Dr Matt :o( (I could but I'm saving his storylines for PM story treatments), although the PM story treatments I wrote expand his character...Paul was so good in Pick Your Battles. A photo gallery of Paul Blackthorne--calling Mrs Minniver? lol...
I see I still need to finish Kidnapped! My color coordination hasn't improved much over the year...
Old old news...Early October...The latest shorty short fic is a Presidio Med fic called Thief of Hearts. I wrote this waayyy back in April. Thief of Hearts' theme is not really a PM scenario...it's more an ER scenario with the suicide attempt. Since I wrote this fic when PM was first announced in April and we had no idea what the storyline was going to be, the storyline's a bit implausible. But Rae did state she 'wants to work on her marriage' so it's possible Rae eventually decides to leave her husband and go with Nick...or will she leave her husband in a Cruise-style quickie divorce, take the material items Nick bought her and then publicly dump Nick, leaving Nick wondering about his personal Thief of Hearts?
...my pen name may be BJ Cashman but I'm not sure about that yet...

|About DANITA WEISSMAN fics...Da
Man Shane didn't give a name or background to Frank's
European mother, so I did.
Brief bio: Mother of Frank Donovan. Birthdate 11/01/33, Stepney, London. Child spy for the MI5, puzzle lover, bookish, intelligent and very social. In her adult years (First Solo Assignment & A Wartime Surprise), we learn Danita knows Polish as her newly declassified diaries were written in Polish. She's a good friend of Jonathan Carnahan, whom she refers to both as Uncle Jonathan and the Hershey Bar Man.
About Danita's parents, Carmiela & Gavriel Weissman: both are spies as well. Gavriel is on top-secret assignment in France while the multilingual Carmiela translates the Polish documents which verify the existence of the concentration camps. She and Danita also work as a mother-daughter team.
Rations during the War were
strict. Clothing was rationed until well after the War
(clothing was exported in order to boost the economy).
Sweets were rationed until just before the coronation of
Queen Elizabeth II in 1952 (& possibly why Roald
Dahl's Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory was
such a big hit: from 1939 until 1952 there was a sweets
ration in effect. All those growing kids who were
restricted in purchasing chocolates and other sweets for
13 years had big dreams about running amok in a chocolate
Danita's Story: London Blitz
|About Lady Donovan Phones
I didn't assign a name to her & UC didn't get around to telling us the name or personal background of Frank Donovan's wife. We know he loves her and phones her prior to his going out for a drink with the UC crew...In these phone conversations, the Lady is on a business trip & phones Frank in what is known as the Endless Phone Conversation In Six Parts...in anticipation of her homecoming, Frank sends the kids to overnight Shabbat services, Part III has an O'Henry twist, Part V sees Frank in a culinary experiment (which he picks up from Jake) and in Part VI, the Lady finally comes home, sees Frank and she gets a bit steamy...
Ardeth's Quest: The
Liberation of London
Using 73,455 words from
various languages (mainly English), the sequel to RON
is in sections. Twenty-four chapters in

Liberation of London: Book Two, Part One (Chapters 8-12 & Intermission II) posted July 11, 2002. Ardeth makes his way to England via an unusual route with the Bracelet of Lostris's help & the O'Connell's witness the beginning of the Blitz.
Liberation; Book Two, Part Two Chapters 13-17 posted (July 23, 02). Imhotep (Vosloo) plays a part while Ardeth keep getting delayed on his journey to London.
Liberation of London: Book Two, Part Three &
(& historical note) posted July 30 (Chapters
18 through 24 & Epilogue). Jonathan plays a pivotal
role in reuniting Ardeth with the Keeper of the Bracelet
of Lostris; Ardeth discovers the Bracelet's true powers
when he learns how to use the Bracelet of Lostris.
Ardeth's Quest Notes: 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 for Ardeth's Quest if you want 'em.
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.
Was Mussolini commanding a propaganda flight over English soil? 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. The Blitz ended in May 1941.
Presidio Med Preview
In this prologue fanfic, written before the show premiered, 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.
The gemstone cinnabar is mercury ore and often is found with mercury balls.

King & Other Fiction
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."
