flyakate: max on a wild thing (soon will be king where the wild things)
I was getting nostalgic for all the [community profile] isurrendered  business, so I thought I'd dig my show back out and update it (not to mention that in the LJ/DW shift and with changes in image hosting, all my pictures went away, oops). So here it is once again:


PROMPT: A show about the beginnings of the Pinkerton Detective Agency. Can be historically AU if wanted (from 
[personal profile] be_themoon )
SHOW: The Diogenes Boys
GENRE: Crime procedural/historical drama. I played merry hell with some timeline issues, but it was too good a framing idea to pass up.
FORMAT: Each season has 22 episodes of about 50 minutes each. Rumors had been that CBS has originally wanted it to continue ratings boosts for Criminal Minds and CSI, but deals fell through after the first award-winning season. The show was then picked up for its second season by BBC America as part of the "Crime-Stopping Wednesdays" and paired with Ripper Street and Copper. Hey, a girl can dream...

In 1871, an all-consuming inferno raced through the city of Chicago. It burned for two whole days, leaving hundreds dead and over four square miles of the city leveled to the ground. The resulting chaos completely severed all lines of communication between the home office of the Pinkerton Detective Agency and the small number of agents that worked out of the Philadelphia office, a city referred to in the agency cypher code as "Diogenes". Together these Pinkerton detectives solve crimes the police are unable (or unwilling) to touch. Will their biggest case yet--infiltrating and breaking the notorious Molly Maguires gang--unify them, or will hidden loyalties and dangerous circumstances drive them fatally apart?

OPENING CREDITS: Gravel Walk - The Rogues


This was way too much fun. Coming up, episode guides! FIc requests?

So there's a meme where you get a prompt and get to make up an amazing tv show. So, I got a prompt and made this and it is AMAZING (I promise). They've made a community--[livejournal.com profile] isurrendered--where you can post if you have a completed prompt, get a prompt if you want one, and even make up fanfic, fanmixes, episode guides and whatever else you'd want about all these amazing (if fictional) shows. So much fun.

SHOW: The Diogenes Boys
GRENRE: Crime drama as a lead-in to CBS's new "Crime-stopping Wednesdays" before Criminal Minds and CSI: New York
FORMAT: Each season has 22 episodes of 50 minutes. The show has a two season run on CBS.

Saw this first at [livejournal.com profile] eudaimon's journal, so all credit for the idea goes there. Without further ado, I bring you the

Zombie Movie Meme!

So, there's the heroine, obviously, and there's her best friend and their other friend (who knew that this was coming, damn it). There's the geek next door and her joker boyfriend and the girl downstairs who screams really loud (but can totally handle a baseball bat). They're on a quest to rescue the ex-girlfriend, and, along the way, they meet the military one, the pregnant single woman and her protective mother and her grandfather (who is, of course, already infected by the time they meet him). There's the adorable couple who are kind of doomed, the cop who has to die heroically and the cute single guy who obviously is meant for the pregnant single girl (but has to save her life first).

I posted this on my NaNo info as an excerpt for my story (which has grown to about 3000 new words, today, woo) and thought I'd put it here too. Maybe I'll remember to keep doing this?

Because [livejournal.com profile] capedcrusader92 asked, here is the poem that I quoted a few entries back. Wrote years ago, but still one (the only one?) of my best. Even though it gets a little overly earthy crunchy towards the end XD

Metaphysical

Because [livejournal.com profile] rhymester is fabulous: there is this. Did you love Disney's Sleeping Beauty? Good, now you can read it. And remember that the horse's name was Samson. *glees about*

Also, to amuse you all (especially [livejournal.com profile] capedcrusader92, 'cause you remember too): a cookie from a story that I've been working on since I was... way younger than now. This is a bit near the beginning. Ben's the main character, his Dad is driving him to school under duress. Now with 100& less corny opening (trust me, there was an artsy leaf metaphor. it was great)! Let me know what you think...

Ben’s dad drank his coffee black, had ever since the divorce four years ago, so he probably hadn’t noticed there wasn’t any milk. )
