This is a snippet from my story for [livejournal.com profile] smallfandombang, a Planet of the Apes (TV series) story called "The Lies That They Gave You". The plot summary is thus: Burke, Virdon and Galen finally return to Earth of the past, to the astronauts' home, but not everything is as it seems.

Stories will be posting starting in early April. And I'm SO EXCITED that [livejournal.com profile] tarlanx has claimed my story to do art. Meanwhile, here's the snippet I posted to the [livejournal.com profile] smallfandomcafe today:


Yeah, who knew apes could be such clothes horses?” Burke reached over to retrieve his cell phone from the bedside table. “Do you know he even has shoe designers falling over themselves making custom shoes for those big monkey feet of his? When he finally moves off the base, he’s going to need a three bedroom place. One for him, one for his clothes, and one for his shoes.”

As Allison padded into the bathroom, Burke admired the view before scrolling through his short list of contacts to find Galen’s number. He tapped the screen to begin the call as the sound of running water and a cloud of steam came from the bathroom. He listened to the phone ring on the other end, then switch over to voice mail.

"Hello!” Galen’s excited voice exclaimed. He could hear his own voice in the background urging Galen to say something more, to state his name. “Oh, this is Galen. If you are getting this recording—isn’t it marvelous?—then I suppose that means I’m too busy to answer this telephone. But when it beeps at you in a moment, you can record a message of your own, and I will listen to it. Oh, and I’ll return your call.”

New surprises and danger await them in Kirtland, which might just hold answers they didn't even know they were seeking. Will the path finally lead them home?

So now that yuletide is over, I've finally gotten back to working on my PotA story for [livejournal.com profile] smallfandombang. Today is Snippet Saturday, and I finally have a new snippet to post.

Planet of the Apes (TV): The Lies That They Gave You

The door to the conference room rattled. Virdon quickly put the almost empty glass on the table, wincing at the heavy thud when it hit harder than he'd intended. His heart thumped just as hard in his chest.

The door slowly opened. A tall, stocky man entered and closed the door quickly behind him, hanging onto the knob with one hand behind his back as he leaned against the door. His blond hair was trimmed short, as was his beard. But the shape of the face was familiar.

“Alan?” The baritone voice was tentative, heavy with emotion.

Virdon’s world tilted off its axis, the room retreating into an unfocused background as his vision narrowed to the man before him. “Chris?”

Chris Virdon’s throat worked, his jaw trembled. Thirty years melted away, and the man who was taller and broader in the chest than Alan suddenly became a young boy who missed his father. “Dad—,” his voice broke, and he rushed forward to pull Alan into a fierce hug. “Dad,” he said again, his voice muffled into Alan’s neck, “Oh my god, Dad. I can’t believe it’s you. I can’t believe you’re home.”

So today is the first Snippet Saturday for [livejournal.com profile] smallfandombang. Here's the snippet I submitted for the new PotA story I'm writing.

Planet of the Apes (TV): The Lies That They Gave You

"I'm sure you have many questions, Colonel—" the General began.

Virdon couldn't contain himself anymore. "Yes, Sir. My family—"

General William Shelton cut him off with a sympathetic look. "Have been notified of your arrival and are en route here."

"What about Burke and Galen, Sir? Are they all right?"

"Major Burke and the chimpanzee Galen are being treated to all the same amenities that you are, Colonel. They are being given medical care and then debriefed. You'll be able to see them soon as well." Shelton smiled reassuringly. "You are heroes, not prisoners. But you've been through a tremendous ordeal, and we want to ease the shock of your return."

Virdon frowned. “General, it's obvious that this isn't the year we left Earth. But no one has been willing to tell me exactly how long we've been gone.” The unasked question hung in the air, making most of the dignitaries shift uncomfortably.

General Shelton was no exception. But he held Virdon's gaze with a steady stare. “The date is April 13, 2012, Colonel. You've been gone thirty-two years.”

Chapter 1 )
danagryphon: (PotA)
I've decided to start posting the sequel to my PotA novel Common Ground (and the companion slash piece in the same universe, Don't You Remember) as a WIP here and on the usual archives. The title of the sequel is Human Nature. I'm hoping to get the first chapter up by this weekend and then a new chapter every couple of weeks. Giving myself deadlines and getting (hopefully) intermediary feedback seems to be my best strategy these days for getting longer (or any) works done.

Here's a blurb:

Human Nature continues the story started in Common Ground, as Burke and Virdon travel to Kirtland AFB in their quest to find a way to return to their own time. The journey leads them through the ruins of the city of Albuquerque, where they discover just how far into the darkness Man has fallen. New surprises and danger await them in Kirtland, which might just hold answers they didn't even know they were seeking. Will the path finally lead them home?
