Randomly wondering if the folks that publish the Star Trek spin off books have ever considered doing a crossover anthology where they get writers to create stories of the TNG (or later) characters entering the holodeck to interact with famous characters from popular TV shows, like the X-Files, Law & Order, Walking Dead, Mad Men, The Wire, etc. and have them be sanctioned by the PTB behind those shows as well. Just for fun. (And profit.) Date would probably love being on the X-Files. Wesley and his friends would probably love an episode of the Walking Dead. Not sure what Worf would be into... FarScape? Hahaha.
Was remembering that at the end of the first Avengers Steve rides off on a motorcycle and recalled that Ichabod Crane of the TV show Sleepy Hollow realized he is quite fond of motorcycles and just imagined briefly the two of them meeting and going on a road trip. Two men out of time, finding out they have more in common then they don't.
I think, before finding out Bucky was still alive, that (movie version) Steve Rogers would have eventually gotten tired of bieng Fury's cleaner that he would have quit SHIELD and maybe tried going to college. Ha. Yeah.
In a very weird reversal, this weekend I was reading a bunch of various fanfic (and things given to me by friends that I'm not done with...) and I found one and I really wanted to cut and paste that thing ctheokas keeps yelling at me with, because the person who is writing it should chuck the characters they're inserting into their story, make them original, and just write this one as something original because it really was that good. Is it ok to yell at strangers online to do something they should?
There's a thing in fan fic that's actually a whole sub-genre called "mundane AU" where superheros have normal lives. I thought I noticed a rather high number of fics with Steve Rogers as a barista... (apparently making superheroes baristas is the favorite day job of choice in these fics.) Huh.

NYPinTA: I think it was me who turned it off. Were the spambots getting to it? Because it's just a box I check off on the forums setting page.

NYPinTA: I know I had it on trying to get all the people who used to chat on Shield.TV (which is gone) and Whedonesque (which is shut down) but had no real way of getting their attention.
