danagryphon: (Pete Interrogation)

Title: Don't You Remember: Epilogue to Common Ground (1/2)
Author: Gryph (gryphon2k)
Genre: mild slash, angsty romance sorta
Character(s): Pete Burke, Alan Virdon, OCs
Rating/Warnings: R (for sexual situations)
Words: 5,694 this part (12,078 total)
Summary: Pete Burke deals with his feelings toward Zeke, while he continues to recover from his injuries/amnesia. Until the memories from a previous trauma surface, and it all goes to hell. Warnings: references to previous non-con.
Disclaimer: I wish these characters were mine, because Fox didn't do right by them.
Notes: The story *can* stand alone, but will be much more complete if you've also ready Common Ground and Broken. This slips in between Common Ground and the currently in progress sequel (working title: Human Nature). Unbeta'd, so all mistakes are mine. Lyrics are from Don't You Remember by Adele.

Title: Escape From Tomorrow (Chapter 8: The Finale)
Fandom: Planet of the Apes (TV)
Author: Gryph (gryphon2k)
Genre: Gen, episode novelization
Character(s): Pete Burke, Alan Virdon, Galen, Urko, Zaius
Rating/Warnings: PG-13
Words: 4,770 (this part)
Summary: Novelization of the pilot episode, script written by Art Wallace. Astronauts Alan Virdon and Pete Burke crash land a thousand years in Earth's future, which is ruled by intelligent apes—chimpanzees, orangutans, and gorillas. The ape government considers them a threat to ape society, and they become fugitives along with a friendly chimp Galen.
Notes: If you've seen the episode, there is some original material in the story (as always... this is me after all). As always, I had a blast doing this novelization, and I've still got a couple more I'd like to get to in the future.

danagryphon: (writing)
So I started posting a work in progress (WIP) of the pilot of the Planet of the Apes TV series. Of the 14 episodes that were made in 1974, eight of them were novelized by George Alec Effinger in four books. However, several key episodes were never novelized, including the pilot. Some of my other favorites were also not done (The Interrogation, which I've already taken care of, The Trap, Tomorrow's Tide, The Liberator). I hope to get to those last three eventually, but for now, I'm doing the pilot.

Of course, this being me, I'm adding in extra material, as well as trying to make sense of some of the glaring inconsistencies in the script. A big chunk of the extra material I'm adding are flashbacks to the mission itself, starting from about 3 years before launch, when the crew was chosen, and following the three astronauts (including poor Jonesy) through their training together, showing how they gelled together as friends, as well as the launch itself and the mission up to the accident.

I'm having a blast with that stuff. Especially the research.

My MIL was really instrumental in helping me with a bunch of that stuff, since she worked for NASA (she was personal assistant to someone very high up there). But as always, it's also fun researching what was what in 1980 (like the fact that Walter Cronkite would have probably covered the launch of the ship, even though Dan Rather did the shuttle flights, because Cronkite retired in early 1981). Also just geeking out on space science stuff (because that MIT edumacation should be useful for SOMETHING after all). And the military stuff, again, my in-laws are very helpful, because FIL was in the USAF.

Now I just need to keep the chapters flowing as fast as I can for the waiting readers. I already got my usual first fan mail, from the sweet lady from the PotA yahoo group who just gushes over my PotA fanfics, bless her little heart.
