Legion of Shadows…

League vol one


Many people have talent, many who came before me. The fear of that is a strange concept to me now. I’m not the first to put together something like this, and I shan’t be the last.

league of extraordinary gentlemen and women


As suggested in my first intro, it’s not a cross-over, it’s more a cross-blend League of Extraordinary Gentlemen type thing… (My trouble being those characters are public domain so profit can be made. I don’t have that luxury. Ah, well.)

League Issue two

I’m adding a tag for Rocky Horror Picture Show because it’s in my series in both Episode 4 and Episode 14 (well, okay, just a bit of lingerie in 14…) and what is the most potent point of The Rocky Horror Picture Show fandom? Audience participation… which is precisely what I’m looking for!

Links for the show are as follows:

and iTunes, of course:



Margaret Josette Dupres: The Delay


kitty versus barnabas

Got some more whoopsies on “Margaret Josette Dupres”. I have a feeling the visual creators with Barnabas/Josette, Barnabas/Maggie & Barnabas/Kitty videos just got their college books and so forth stowed away to enjoy their summer break, wound up finding all the links I sent them and are TOTALLY confused, “Wait, there’s this END RESULT story over here and then there is this weird audio drama over here… HUH?”

Sorry, folks!  I WAS scouring for you for NINE months. So I’ve got a lovely comment on the novel on you tube from a Jenny, yay, thank you! And two more huffy-arse guest reviews on fanfiction.net. I checked my material and the angst over not picking up the POV or the reincarnation aspect seems to come from a speed-reader who’s not looking at the notes NOR the summary. JEEZ-LOUISE!

I checked the chapters and made efforts of giving away who was speaking as soon as possible, in many cases the first sentence/paragraph. Enjoy the darn thing, ladies! Don’t try and gulp down your entire plate of tea sandwiches without chewing. LOL! The glowing reviews are there already, you might investigate them… ah well, perhaps they had to study Plato last semester and are still miffed over that. Who knows?

As it turns out, my BIG meanie reviewer still believes I wrote the guest review in defense of my work. (Thank you to whoever it actually was!)

Considering all he was looking for was conflict rather than pairings my concern that he was a threatened Julia/Barnabas fan just looking to get my ire up was an incorrect deduction. YAY! I’m very glad to discover his motives.

His complaint that my story weaved in and out of consistency is due to the fact that he skipped several chapters. Nice… His complaint that they were out of character was ALSO from not picking up on the notes nor the summary and as he was looking for conflict rather than the clan of Collinwood actually ENJOYING themselves and having a ball, well, yes. OF COURSE you’re going to be confused! *snort*

I used to feel some worry that I was turning into the kind of obnoxious that can be compared to Harlan Ellison. His rude words through our discussions put any obnoxiousness I ever had to shame. ^_^  *sighs* Anyway, at least I managed to calm his outrageous nerve before he went around skipping through everyone else’s hard works and ragging on them. Got a little weird with one writer but looks like he’s done better with everyone else. Thank goodness. None of us need harsh opinions stated as though they are fact after giving out freebies from much labour and intensity.

As for any new followers? I’ll leave the link to the novel again below. If you have nice things to say, don’t be shy with them. You can throw in any joe-schmoe name you’d like and guest reviews are pretty simple depending on your keyboard. Would you like to see this couple enjoy themselves for a change? *wink*


This world has got plenty of the bad stuff. Celebrate the smiles you can give instead. Thanks.

Episode 15: Intro With Automne Archer

Intro to 15


Lurch’s harpsichord entreats our venture toward a new avenue of this radio drama. The troubles collide and the gratitude extends in name and detail. So much celebration to be had between our faithful listeners who speak, and then? Our Addams Family prodigy reveals why she adores The Ghost & Mrs. Muir, as well as the golden age of cinema.

Discussion in the appreciation of canon, romance, fandom interests, emotional fortitude, our deeper meaning, exploration, friendship, Facebook disconnect, character study, and who we are.

Four alternatives to Facebook and its “Instant God”. Why correspondence is important and the donation account details:


Explanations about knee-jerk reactions from people who can’t see past fanfiction in “text” and never understand this project equates to major effort and money for bills to the post office, podomatic, archive donations, DVD extras, research books, moral support, and the drive for a higher purpose of being.

(By the way, Lurch’s harpsichord is actually from a piece that Emilie Autumn performed to celebrate “Always Look On The Bright Side of Life” from Monty Python’s “The Life of Brian” film. Also the ending clip song is by Nada Surf’s “I Remembered What I Was Going To Say”, which metaphorically works better than I could imagine since I believe many are wanting to tell me what they like but forgot how. So that’s my nod to where I’m lifting goodies. i.e. if you like them go and BUY THEM! ^_^ )

I realize some of you who aren’t downloading my show from iTunes need different links so you can choose what is easier. Here they are for this podcast. (Some people call it a broadcast which I love because I am essentially doing a radio show. Good, good!)
