"That fic with the unionizing dwarves."

So dwarves are miners, right? And miners have to unionize...

Last year I planned to write a nonfiction book about the systematic gutting of employment law enforcement in the US. When I looked up months later, I realized I'd written a fantasy novel about labor rights instead. And gender, and politics, and even love.

Eighteen months of my life writing this, and I've loved it so much that I wish it wasn't over.

I'm adding this for just as a note to myself, really. It's a list of fandom-related things that I want and really can't afford or can't get ahold of cause, like, the zines are out of print or the author threw a hissyfit and stomped out of fandom and took all her stories with her (or so I'm told; who knows what really happened--fan history is written by those who stick around).
Work in progress--I'm adding things slowly to this list. Gonna start with Pros fandom--brand new (to me), but already belov'd.

The Professionals

The DVD boxed set Yeah, I broke down and bought it. My excuse to myself is that my brother was going to buy it for me otherwise, and he really couldn't afford it.

#2 and #3 in Jane Carnall's "Fox and Wolf" trilogy. Is this online anywhere? If so, I can't find it.

Various zines )
Somebody to write me a Stuart/Doyle fic. Because I heart Stuart. Of course my OTP is Bodie/Doyle so I want Bodie to find out and be angsty and jealous but unwilling to admit he's jealous, but I want Stuart and Doyle to snark at each other and at Bodie. I've got a feeling if I want this fanfic, I'm going to have to write it myself. Nobody else in this fandom seems to share my Stuart-love. This might have something to do with the fact that he appears in a grand total of one episode and is a bit of a dick, but I heart him anyways.

Podfic! Fanfic, read aloud. Sometimes, but not always, by the author. There is, sadly, no Professionals podfic. Woe. Yep, this is another thing I'm going to have to do if I want it. I wonder what kind of equipment I'd need?

So, I know this is... wrong... but I want to see The New Professionals. I already know I won't like it, but I want to see it. It's like--it's like Galactica 1980, right? You know it's a trainwreck, but it's a canon trainwreck so you want to see it! ...But then you discover that accepting it as canon means you have to accept that Starbuck died stranded and alone on a barren planet. Which is so not cool. I don't have high hopes for this series, but I do want to see it. Just to know.

Since this is more of a dreamlist than a wishlist, I'll stick this on: I want to see The Chief as well. Which, well, if you thought it was hard for an American to get ahold of a popular '70s British show...

...The novelizations! Because it's *almost* canon!

Starsky & Hutch

Season 4 DVDs. Yes, Season 4 sucked. But I have the other three seasons, and I have great memories of lounging around Leonard's cabin naked watching them. So I want the last season.

The Lone Gunmen

I want the It Takes All Kinds archive back up. Because I firmly believe that it is a fandom tragedy when an archive goes down, especially for small fandoms like this one.

D. Sidhe to update her hilarious, cracked-out, had-me-laughing-so-hard-I-hurt Caffeine, Conspiracies, And The Fortean Nature of Fishes. I spent days reading this series last Christmas. Stories like this are the reason fanfiction was invented.

Also I want the DVDs. I totally cannot justify this to myself as I have all the eps on my laptop.

Law & Order

Yes! NBC gave us Season 6 on DVD! Now give us Season 7! And, you know, Seasons 8-18! Also, get my library to buy them so that I don't have to!

And yeah, I know this fandom is ancient by internet standards, but it's incredibly frustrating to know that there was once good Logan/Stone fic out there that people actually recced, and now there's like, three stories still on the 'net.

The Practice

Best law show ever. So why don't they put more than the first season out on DVD?? *pouts*

Also, some decent fanfic for this show. Am I just not looking in the right places?

Lord of the Rings

There's this fanfic that was written back before the movies. It's gen. It's about three paragraphs long. It's about Legolas, to whom I have never been partial. It remains the best fanfic I have ever read. And I can't find it anywhere.

New Battlestar Galactica

Somebody to watch Season 3 with.
No, scratch that. Somebody to watch Season 3 with who does not believe that Sarah Palin is going to Save America From Itself in 2012.

Signs you've been watching too much X-Files lately:

1) You get very upset with Netflix when they don't have Plan Nine From Outer Space immediately available.... it's only the third-worst movie ever made; who else wants the damn thing?!

2) In the "Magick and Paranormal" section of your second-favorite used book store, you actually pick up The UFO Abductee's Survival Guide and laugh so hard the owner of the store gives you dirty looks.

3) You know all the words to Bree Sharp's stalkeriffic "David Duchovny, Why Don't You Love Me?" and catch yourself singing them in the backstock refrigerator at work.

4) You have (oh, the shame) read Lone Gunmen Mary-Sue fic because dammit, there's no good LGM fanfic out there.
