Drabble: Escape From Eden

The results of my Original Character poll are fairly conclusive; Sorkatani wins, with as many votes as all of the others put together. I’m rather surprised that Anna only received one vote; okay, she’s a ruthless killer who has been indoctrinated since childhood with the idea that it is her duty to shove a sharpened bicycle spoke through Dawn’s heart, but she’s a good girl really.

Viconia is, of course, not an Original Character of mine; she was created by the writers at Bioware.

During this set of nights off work various real-life issues, involving moving furniture and painting walls, have cut into my writing time and energy, but I might have something to post tomorrow; a surprise continuation of a fic that I haven’t touched for months.

Recently agilebrit mentioned that she had begun work on a story about time travel to the Garden of Eden. I immediately dashed off a drabble on the subject and posted it in her Comments. I have now decided to share it with the rest of you. 100 words, PG.

Primeval drabble: Time Flies

I was incredibly slow to get into ‘Primeval’. What I heard about it initially didn't appeal to me and I didn't watch the first season at all. Recently I saw the trailer for the episode with the sabre-tooth at the amusement park, was interested enough to watch it expecting to see fun badfic, and found that it was in fact excellent on every level. This weekend I made a point of watching both of the final episodes of the season. I’ll get the first season on DVD as soon as I can, followed by the second season when it is released, and catch up. I’m impressed by their use of the less common monsters from the past rather than only the blatantly obvious ones of ‘Jurassic Park’. Permian gorgonopsids rock!

I doubt if I'll do much ficcing of the show, as a lot of the appeal is visual, but Helen is a great villain and I like Connor and Abby, and so I can't rule it out. It does have the advantage that I can leave the spell-checker set to ‘English (United Kingdom)’! I’m starting off with a drabble. I’m afraid that it won't mean anything at all to those who don't watch ‘Primeval’. 100 words, PG for one very mild swearword.
