For those of you don’t know, NaNoWriMo is awesome. It’s a personal challenge to write 50,000 words in one month. It’s a great motivator and so much fun! Check out their website at nanowrimo.org.

Personally… I am sssoooooooooooo behind. But that’s okay, I still have plenty of time to catch up.

I’m taking this weekend off from XMTFFS to give myself some time to work on it. The Series will be back next Friday with a brand new episode: 1X06 The Trask at Hand. I’ll see you then!

It’s very typical of television shows to take a week or two off, usually because either of a holiday or special event preempted them. Well, this weekend I will be at a steampunk convention and next weekend is Thor: The Dark World… not to mention NaNoWriMo starts today! So I thought this would be a good time to take off for a bit, let people catch up, and give me some time to work on future episodes.

I won’t leave you with nothing though, here is a sneak peak at the upcoming episode 1X06 – The Trask at Hand

“Call up your X-Men friends,” Val gave him a conspiratorial smile, “odds are they’re going to stick their noses into this anyway, Sentinel is too dangerous to them not to get involved.”

“They gave Nimrod back,” Fred pointed out.

“After they broke it,” she returned wryly.

“To keep Magneto from getting it,” he frowned.

“So they say,” she wasn’t entirely convinced, “but regardless, I want them where I can see them,” she crossed her arms and left no room to debate, “if they want to ‘be the better person’, then they can prove it.”

Fred considered her for a second, then he gave her a scoffing laugh, “And it’s a move the Acolytes won’t see coming, us actually working together.”

“Got it in one,” she grinned, then gestured to his phone that was lying out on the desk. “Trask wants the Council’s help in moving Sentinel. We move it in two days, Thursday to be exact,” she almost laughed, “I know it’s a school day but they better be ready.”

“They’re not stupid,” he wanted to shake his head at her, “even if I don’t tell them, they’ll know there’s nothing altruistic about this, that you’re using them.”

“I’m not trying to hide it,” she shrugged, then sighed, “I know, they claim to be the good guys, but they’re just as much capable as the Brotherhood of doing untold damage if left unchecked. Now, I’ve seen our government give weapons to the ‘good guys’ to fight other ‘bad guys’,” she exaggerated the words, “then only a decade or so down the line find those weapons turned back on us. I’m not making that mistake here, especially since mutants are weapons.”

“They’re not weapons,” Fred said sternly, sitting up straight in his chair to look her dead in the eye, “they’re people.”

“So is a suicide bomber,” she replied coldly, leaning forward, “only when a mutant blows up, odds are it can walk away and do it again.”

On my latest post on FanFiction.net, I got asked this question:

When you transfer it from your blog to here, do you do any kind of editting or is it just copy and paste?

That’s a good question.

The way I write the series is that season one has a folder for every episode, and inside that folder is six word docs as I write each act in its own document. I do this because it’s easier for me to visualize each act as its own separate section with ‘commercial breaks’ in-between.  It’s also easier to move sections around if I decide to put a particular scene earlier or later in the story.

Then when I go to make the pages here on my blog, I copy/paste everything after I have done one last edit. Then I create a new word file and that becomes the world doc for use on FF.net. I copy everything over to the one document and upload that to FF.net to be posted as the next chapter/episode.

Long story short, no, I don’t do any editing between them, at least nothing significant. If I do catch the odd misspelled word (cause I know I don’t catch them all as hard as I try) then I will go back and edit it on the blog, but nothing of significance is changed. If I did decide to change something significant, I would edit on both sites and post on my blog to that effect. So far though, I haven’t had to do that.

Anyway, this was probably more than you wanted to know, but I wanted to share.

Air Date: 10/18/2013
Scott is haunted by memories as the team heads to Alaska to track a newly manifested mutant. Storm confronts an old friend and digs up painful memories of her own.

Note: This is quite possibly the episode I’m most proud of so far. When ginchy read it, she said that she had four ‘least favorite’ characters, and I’m a miracle worker because I made her like/feel for two of them in this episode.

Here is a sneak peak at episode 1X09 “King of Hearts” which airs 11/29/13 and premieres Gambit in my fan fiction series.
This is from the teaser…

“Call the thief.”

In an upscale apartment, the bedroom was dark except for light shining through the blinds from the neon signs beyond. A blond woman lay on her bed, hair splayed in a sweaty mess, a slight upturn to her lips.

A dark figure moved across the room, the sleeping woman oblivious as she turned and cuddled against the pillow. A King of Hearts appears beside her, and the figure moves out the door, shutting it without so much as a squeak or click.

Booted feet move down the stairwell, but again, not a sound was to be heard until a light buzzing echoed off of the beige walls. From somewhere in the maze of pockets specially sewn into the brown trench coat, the man pulled out a cell phone.

The caller ID read Helmet Hair.

Clicking accept, he brought the phone to his ear, “Bonjour.”

“We have a job for you,” he recognized the voice of Leeds’, Magneto’s little gopher, “Smithsonian. Expedited.”

“That’ll cost,” the voice of the figure came across deep, southern fried with a European garnish of smooth velvety chocolate.

“Noted,” the man expected as much, “you’ll meet Sabretooth at a specified location, I’ll text you once I have it.”

“The Kitty, huh,” he exited out of the building, walking towards the street, “cost you extra.”

“Yes,” Leeds sighed, “standard rates, I presume.”

“I’ll be there ‘fore sun up,” he told the man, clicking the phone off and tucking it into his pocket as keys appeared in his other hand.

With practiced ease, the figure straddled the classic Harley then turned over the engine which purred loudly in the moonlight. It caught the attention of a man walking his dog, but all he saw was the tail light as the bike drove off, and the distinctive white Louisiana license plate which read: THECAJUN.
