I Hope Y’all Enjoy And Live Long & Prosper~
Hi HI Y’all~
Starting in January Captain Picard will once again be gracing our screens. Considering it is around the time my co-writer JJHW [ access to her site here] and I are picking back up our RP(s) at a more timely schedule it seems likely that our Star Trek series will gain more inquiries.
This is due to the series working off of our own custom Timeline and/or parallel universe.
I think I’m going to take a brief chance to explain some of the big things about the current timeline for the series. Especially, since renewed interest in Picard would mean more attention to the Star Trek Universe itself.
First off, our series begins in the late 2100’s and early 2200’s: after Enterprise but before the original series. This is the time period where The Federation has finally started to shift from it’s beginning phases to appear as a united organization within the galaxy. Essentially, no jumpsuits and proper uniforms.
You’ll see a lot of the drama in the series relating to the fact of the remaining issues from the beginning of the Federation and it’s relationship with the planet Earth; while, also highlighting more of the issues between the species within the Federation and those engaging with it.
The new Picard series is much later in the future. Where there has been established relationships between many species and many trials undergone together. Thus, you’ll see the politics between the characters will be different.
Another big point within the universe we made is that is defines itself by having earlier contact with the Gamma Quadrant and Delta Quadrant. In the original universe (and others like Kelvin or Terran Empire) during this time period most contact was within the Alpha and Beta Quadrant. Interest and tests for the Gamma Quadrant and Delta Quadrant had really just started. This has set a huge change in that the Federation (and those in the Alpha-Beta Quadrant) having been introduced to more species, politics and powers earlier in the time line.
Specific details on how this happened do come out within the series later on. However, for some understanding for Star Trek Maesters I’ll sum it up briefly.
It was decided to have this change in the “normal” universe happen due to an accident with an exploratory vessel. It was launched/sent into the unknown Delta Quadrant. Over the years of breaking the established rules of no contact with pre-warp capable planets the crew members were able to create almost a junkyard looking station for themselves (based on taken resources). Many years passed but after certain events (we’ll get to later) contact was established back with those in the home quadrant and a combination of exploratory vessels were able to map a long slow path back.
This path meant direct engagement with the Romulan Star Empire and the Klingon Empire, which stood in the way of return. Due to the desire of expansion into the Delra Quadrant by the two empires skirmishes and tense agreements had been made. Essentially, the Klingon’s had a shoot on site policy with any foreign vessel within their territory but approved a very strict and small path through the Quadrant. The Romulan Star Empire became more aggressive towards the resources of the new planets and after many events formed an “alliance” of sorts, based on trade, with the young Federation. This allows them to use the established path to seek out “Trade” and “Contact” with those in the Delta Quadrant. In return, they have a warn first policy on accidental entrance into Romulan space and an Ambassador sent to the Federation.
As for any influence from the Borg it hasn’t been revealed yet within this timeline. It is instead felt within the Quadrant as if just a bit further lurks an intimidating danger. You may see within the series hints at Borg influences but nothing more.
Switching over to the Gamma Quadrant it has an even less built relationship with the species of the Alpha and Beta Quadrant. Introduction to the Cardassians has taken forefront very early. This has made exploration and understanding of other planets/species very difficult. There is an agreed upon route Federation ONLY vessels may take, however, their safety in dealing with a Cardassian Vessel is always up to fate. The Cardassian’s have sent an Ambassador that is only present for the big meetings. Unlike the Romulans they do not have a trade deal or any sort of relationship with the Federation outside of agreed upon routes.
There will definitely be hints at the Dominion for Star Trek fans but they are not part of the story what so ever.
Knowing these two things I think it is best to see this Star Trek series of ours as more of the politics within such a young Federation. How it affects and changes the Earth is a big part of it. As well as, how do all of these species adjust to working with each other and finding their places in this large organization that has been created.
Not everyone is happy with how quickly the universe got bigger and many people just want to profit over it.
I’ll even swallow down any feelings about ships you may have. 😉

Hi Hi Y’all!
Since, this is my first writing camp I haven’t really had it planned well. BUT I AM FIXING IT NOW! Until, the end of June I will have a post a daily reminder of the monthly camp and a day challenge to keep yourself going!
Reach out to any of fellow writer’s you know and check in! Tell them about your WIP and what it inspires in you.
Hi hi y’all,
I was sitting at my computer and was dying in the agony of having nothing to watch when the odd suggestion of Blood Ties came across my screening. I’m not going to lie, after binging the two seasons I have many comments. Is this a 90s show? It feels SUPER 90s. Why is the tension between Henry and Vicki written so awkwardly but still makes me rage about them not having SEX yet! Henry was objectively (even with awkward lines and plots) very yummy. Also why is your relationship with Mike so awkward? Will his new female partner learn the truth and handle it without trying to kill Henry like he did? Or Vicki? Why does Coreen have such awful taste and horrible luck with men? Again, I’d take a Henry.
But, it is more important to push these aside for a moment and remember that when it comes to me and dead/dying shows I immediately wonder about remakes. If I was to resurrect Blood Ties then what should be done?
Here is my rough remake version for 2019 peeps:
(1) Change Vicki to be a uni student that has a dead family member who was a cop. Have her going blind become a more prominent point in the series since TV has started to FINALLY get a bit better about showcasing that.
(2) Make Mike be an older childhood friend who is already a well known or great young cop.
(3) Coreen should be younger and less super goth looking. This isn’t 90s cliche moments.
(4) Keeping Henry as he was is fine just give him better lines.
(5) Just in general be better about plot. The monsters and flow got a bit… WEIRD towards the end.
BUT NONE OF THIS MATTERS SINCE I JUST REMEMBERED IT’S BASED OFF A BOOK. Oh well~
Moving on, I also recently saw Shazam. It was good. The flaws were covered up by the fact that having a good DC movie in awhile was a shock, having an actor who played a child well instead of being weird, a well assembled support cast and the hint of the SHAZAM FAMILY AT THE END!
That also got me thinking… I need to be better about my writings (time was, commitment wise and aspiration wise).
One day I don’t want to just see my books on shelves, but TV shows I’ve made or movies I’ve helped write. I want to stand as a creator that excels in their craft.
Soooooo….Basically….I guess I’m saying… I’m back?
P.s. buy my web novel (https://www.amazon.com/Tale-Shadow-Light-Chronicles-ebook/dp/B07L5F6DXZ) please?

Hi Hi y’all!
In celebration of my upswing in health and ability to do things again PLUS an increase of my rps with the lovely @outremusings I will be updating fan fiction as much as possible for a bit.

It’s a super interesting series by Kannazuki Kurenai.
Here are the chapter updates of current on going:
Hi Hi Y’all,
I just wanted to share one of my favorite new poems that will appear in my COMING OUT SOON poetry book, Confessions of a Teenage Poet. The book is a collection of things I’ve written in earlier school years and shows the feelings I kept hidden from a lot of people around me. I think this poem does a great job at showing the underlying feelings I had from moving to high school to university. Some of these feelings I think still are there, but buried under new fears and anxieties.
The Pink Hotel
It’s four a.m. and the crowd twitches,
Built up nerve born from youth
seeking to run free.
“Let us go for a walk.
We are paying for the view.”
A silent ride down.
I walk ahead,
Lost in thoughts,
Drowning in my twenty four hour soda.
I look ahead.
There are low scattered fountains,
Large and tiled with Spanish flowers.
In the darkness, I see light.
So much light is reflected
In waves of eerie hues.
Another match is burnt away.
“Dammit it won’t light.”
What was it, ten matches?
All to light his first cigar.
I don’t know why he kept trying.
I continue to walk away
To a farther fountain,
Where grass is still gentle,
To collapse in dewy golf turf.
I look to see a snake, none.
The pink hotel is a tower,
Looming in the sky above me.
Endless, reaching heights
I could never reach even reach
Laying eager on my back.
Why is there no stars,
Just a black sky?
A lonely Mercury
out of reach of Venus,
light up the seemingly black oblivion.
One cares to find me,
Upset at the foolish antics of youth.
“Are you ok?”
I smile and admit his thought was right.
I had lied on a truth question.
He looked away
And soon the two others
Reappeared with a slow burning
Rolled bark of success.
“Want to walk?”
I nodded and got up,
Running ahead of the
I was always ahead,
Never next to anyone.
Not much is seen,
But a lonely palm tree
Framing Venus’ Lone arms,
And a single fish darting
Between lighted Angel mirrors.
There is another fountain.
I jump to the highest peak
And look down at my youth.
I open my mouth to say,
“When you were Polonius is this how you felt?”
The guy holding the cigar laughs,
“Never my dear.”
I shake my head and point
at the cigar he holds far from him.
“To thine own self be true.”
They laugh and keep walking,
Remarks on wealth and status.
We were so young, so eager
To make an image of ourselves-
An image we didn’t really understand.
I walk back to the room,
Another silent ride in the elevator.
Quietly I slip inside.
I’m hungry for something new.
Why did I choose this pink hotel?
Here Ya Go,
Hi Hi Y’all…
Yea, I have been sick lately. The worst cold EVER. My voice has been up and down and my ability to function seems to fluctuate. BUT, I have pushed through to use all my energy to finish some content.
So, here we go with the updated Fan Fiction:
That’s all for now. I promise to try and return to the outside world as soon as possible.
Oh, actually, also I made a practice bullet journal. People seem to really say it helps with organization so let’s make a practice one to see if it helps…
P.S, does anyone know how to add previous/next page options on here?
