TGIT from Alexandria’s Geeky Corner

Leave a comment

“Yeah, Yeah, I had to take a break. All these people with NO sense of humor. No, Alex, you can’t do that! NO ALEX STOP! ALEXANDRIA! STOP IT NOW! Do you know how many times a day, I hear the word no? Yeah! Too many to count, actually. So since I have the gene and the rank, I borrowed a puddle jumper and isn’t this a nice place. I only meant to go to the mainland, but when I dropped down into the control room, the gate opened and I swear the jumper flew itself through. I’m going to have to do some quick and fancy footwork when I get back, but I saved the file that shows the jumper flew itself. OOOOH! I see a glowy thingie…laters!”

“Dammit, I didn’t bring a uni with me. Hopefully, that glowy thingie is friendly or a ZPM that has nothing attached to it, ya know like a booby trap.”

YAY! I WON NANOWRIMO! now what? lol

If you noticed the IOTD, it was my Winner banner from this year’s NaNoWriMo! That’s right, I won it again! WOOHOO!

so now what happens? 

Editing and revision happen! Once I get it to a point, I like, then I’ll be sending it off to a beta/proof-reader! And now, I’m waiting for the cover artwork! I’m sooo excited to see it! I gave hardly no direction as I’m being gifted this artwork, so when that happens, I let the artist do their work! Gary did the last cover for me too!

 

 

snippet from my story…

Leave a comment

Last year around this time, I shared a snippet of my then story. And for those interested-it’s posted on: M’Chels Plot Bunny Musings this link takes you to the beginning and each chapter has a link at the bottom to go to the next chapter. I’m nice like that. 😉 plus it’s based on my own experience of how I like to read online stories. 😀

This years story: Colonel Storm; the Status Quo is the sequel to the above story. 🙂 and now for the snippet, ps- not betaed yet! (aka proof read)

“Understood, Alex. And do you want to go off world again?”

“Sure. With the all girl team, most definitely. It will go a long way to help my standing with Major Teldy. I’m helping her with leadership skills. She is technically the third in charge of the military. I know what it’s like to be a female leader, obviously.”

He shakes his head, “I don’t think they appreciate being called the all girl team.”

“It’s better than what I’ve heard. Besides first mission wasn’t that bad, but. Yeah. I’d like a bit of a go, with a cake walk. Build my confidence back up. Besides she said it’s a check up on an ally. I’d like to walk around and see what the rest of the Pegasus galaxy has to offer.”

“Well, then I think that would be a good idea. I’d like you to get to know a few of our allies and then escort me on a field trip to the Coalition.”

“Hm. Show off your hybrid?” She watches him choke on his tea, “Relax, Richard, I was joking. I can understand how having an alien as unique as I am would be to the coalition. In fact, I think I could be quite beneficial for our expedition. Once upon a time, the Ki’Tarans were allies of the Alterans. And Daniel didn’t send those books just for entertainment purposes. He wants me to read them, figure out what happened, and maybe learn how to fix it. I think. Anyway, I need to speak to Hermiod.”

Casual Alex-new hair

Hope you enjoyed, and look forward to reading it when it is finished. It too will be posted chapter by chapter after it’s revision in January. I just write, write and write in November. December is a break with some revision however the majority of the revising is done in January! 😀

Thank you very much for those that voted, I appreciated them. 🙂

As I’ve mentioned before, this story is not for me to publish or make money on, this is for my own enjoyment, and for those that also might like to read it.

Title: The hybridization of Colonel Alexandria Storm a stargate story

Author’s note’s: This has not been proofread, so all mistakes are mine.
Also this is a snippet, not a complete chapter. And I would like to say that this snippet is for my Flan Friends. Hi Ladies!! 😀

“Good Morning, Ma’am.”

She looks up to see a tall person with the lieutenant colonel rank on his uniform and the name Sheppard on his nametag. “Hello Colonel Sheppard, seems we finally meet.”

 He smiles slightly and takes a seat across from her, placing his coffee mug down on the table, “That sounds ominous.”

 She chuckles, “No not at all, you’ve got to remember though I’ve heard non-flattering things about you from Landry.” She notices him stiffen up a bit from that comment, “Oh relax, Colonel. I like to make my own informed opinions of people. I mean, really. Look at me.”

 He takes a minute to look over her, and then his eyes reach hers and he smiles, holding out his hand, “It’s John.”

 She grasps his outstretched hand, “Hi, John. I’m Alex. Nice to meet you.”

 Releasing his grip on her hand, “So, I heard Lorne slacked a bit yesterday. In giving the tour. He mentioned that while you have the ATA gene that there were a few minor issues. However after watching the door slide open before you were in close proximity, I’ll take it that’s no longer an issue?” He takes a sip of his coffee and watches her.

 “Yes the Major was kind to escort me to the infirmary and bring me here for lunch. As for slacking, well John. You were off world, who knows what you were doing.” She smirks at him, “And no. It’s no longer an issue, I did some meditation last night and I think that helped. Lots of stress you know, going from being on an alien world, to a locked down facility, and then to another galaxy.  Stresses a girl out a bit.” She laughs slightly as he nods his head in agreement with her.

 “I know some, not all, unlike Mitchell, I don’t read every report from the SGC. I’d prefer to hear it from you, and that’s what you want to share. But with that being said, if it’s going to affect our working relationship, then I expect to hear it. Understood?”

 She laughs, “Really lite colonel, I outrank you. However, I also respect the work you’ve done here. And also not like Mitchell, I did do some light reading before coming here, true I didn’t have a lot of time taking the midway route. However, I skimmed the important data that Walter highlighted for me. And John, I’m teasing about the rank. Doesn’t matter squat, until it does. Deal?” She holds her hand back out to him.

 He takes her outstretched hand and nods while saying, “Deal, Alex. And if I need you to deal with Caldwell, well. I’m sure I can think of something to repay you with.”

 ‘Repay you with? What are they talking about?’ Major Lorne walks up at the tail end of their conversation. “Sir, Ma’am.”

 “Sit down, Lorne.” John waves at a seat for him to sit down.

“Hi, Evan. Fancy meeting you here. Am I early or are you late?” She places a hand on her chest and fakes a swoon. And then her and John start laughing.

 ‘Oh yeah, she’s going to be fun.’ John watches Major Lorne try not to laugh out loud at her antics.
