10:16 am: Anti-Venin ch.7
Once again I've disappeared for a bit. I'm still struggling with the ending of this piece, and I've had other rabid plot-bunnies nibbling on me lately. Ah well, enjoy chapter 7.

Oh my, I seem to have dropped off the face of the planet for a while again. This post will put my story just a little over the half way point. I'm still struggling on how to complete this tale because I don't just want to chop it off. Well here we go.

A/N: I make no claim to having any medical expertise, but I'm pretty sure that the situations mentioned in my story are not really possible. Remember readers, this is a work of fiction. If I can tell an interesting story that might make you think that it could be possible, then I feel like I've done my part. Cheers!

Hi All!
Sorry about the delay here, work has been a real drain the past few days and when I get home I've gotten sucked into reading stuff instead of posting things. So anyway, here's the next chapter:

Well, here's chapter three. I'm a little curious to know if anyone is reading this at all, but I'm not going to hold it hostage if I don't get any comments. I know that my title isn't a real word, but I thought it sounded cool.

07:46 pm: Fanfiction "Anti-Venin" Pt.3 Chapter 2
Hello again,
After I did all that posting on Sunday I finally divided my story into parts. Looking back I've found that the first two parts I put up constitute chapter 1. Right now the tale is ten chapters long and I think it will wrap up in either chapter 11 or 12. So here's the next offering.

Show: Quantum Leap + White Wolf/Werewolf

01:26 pm: Just a few obsessions
As I mentioned in my last post, I'm starting to dabble more into fanfiction and I'm feeling like some of the stuff I've got written is just about ready to be released into the wild. Some I'll post here (firsts), and some I'll post on fanfiction.net, or adultfanfiction.net under the penname Quido. (Don't go looking there yet I've not posted anything yet). I'll probably look around for more specific communities to post things to since they seem to be more supportive.

Here's a taste:

This is also going to be a test to see if I can follow the instructions for a cut text. Cheers.

04:11 pm: Surprise! I'm still breathing!
Yikes, I just saw that its been over 130 weeks since I last posted. I guess that nothing truly notable has been happening in my life.

I've continued to be a ravenous reader of Fanfiction, but lately I've been writing more. If you read my other posts you may know that I'd found that I have written this stuff for years, but until about three years ago I didn't know that there was a whole community of people churning it out. My current interests have me playing in a lot of different sandboxes (X-Men, Transformers, Magnificent Seven, Sentinel, Highlander, Quantum Leap, Harry Potter, White Wolf), and most of my current stories are unfinished. I do have a couple of stories that may be released into the wild, hopefully in the near future, but since I don't want to be like a lot of other authors who start posting stories and then never finish them, I'm being cautious about posting what I have written. I've also found that I'm not happy with what I'm writing if I don't have a strong idea about where I'm coming from. This has caused me to spend a lot of time raking through source material and coming up with my own material to fill whatever gaps I need to. I tend to fuse a lot of different sources together, so I can't say that I stick to cannon, if it makes sense to me I'll use it. If I can't find anything in canon that makes sense, I'll come up with my own and that brings me to my reason for starting this post.

My most recent fanfiction musings have been based in the Transformer's Universe and one of the biggest sticking points for me has been conveying a sense of time, and that Cybertronians work under a completely different system than Earth (they are after all aliens). I searched around the net to see if anything has been defined officially and was surprised to find how much variation there was even within the canon. Working from what was out there I came up with the following:

Cybertronian Time – Units of Measure:

Only two terms defining a period of time are acceptably defined within the Transformer's Universe cannon. I've noticed that many fanfiction writers have consequently muddled along or avoided using Cybertronian time units. Since I feel that using them is beneficial while trying to express the alien nature of Cybertronians I offer the following derivations.

Defined Units:

breem – a span of time equal to 8.3 Earth minutes (500 seconds).
The breem is interpreted by most sources to be the Cybertronian minute.

vorn – a span of time equal to 83 Earth years.
The vorn is interpreted by most sources to be the Cybertronian year.

Derived Units:
Therefore, building from these two points, and working with a base 10 system and International System of Units (SI) prefixes as much as possible I have derived the following:

centibreem – 5 Earth seconds
decibreem – 50 Earth seconds – 1 Cybertronian klik
breem – base unit of Cybertronian time – 500 Earth seconds (8.3 Earth minutes)
dekabreem – 5 000 Earth seconds – 1 Cybertronian Joor (83 Earth minutes)
kilobreem – 500 000 Earth seconds – 1 Cybertronian Cycle (5.787 Earth days)
orn – 1 500 000 Earth seconds (17.36 Earth days)
megabreem – 500 000 000 Earth seconds (15.84 Earth years)

Taking into consideration that a year on Earth is determined by astronomical observation, and applying a similar principle to Cybertron – if a vorn is equal to 83 Earth years then the following applies:

vorn – base unit of Cybertronian time – 5 238 561.6 breem (30 315.75 Earth days – 83 Earth years)
dekavorn – 10 vorn – 1 Cybertronian decade (830 Earth years)
hectovorn – 100 vorn – 1 Cybertronian century (8 300 Earth years)
kilovorn – 1000 vorn – 1 Cybertronian millennium (83 000 Earth years)
megavorn – 1 000 000 vorn – 1 Cybertronian age (83 000 000 Earth years)

While I don't expect that this will become widely accepted it will be the system that I will adopt for my Transformers fanfiction.

04:12 pm: Long time no see
Wow, I wasn't planning on taking such a Hiatus but stuff happened. I got lost in the giant vacuum of Fanfiction.net, plus I discovered that one of my old canceled favorite shows (Quantum Leap) has seven seasons of virtual episodes. So I've been reading like a mad thing. During this reading binge I've discovered that one of the ideas I had as an undergrad (read as: a very very long time ago) has good potential for being accepted as a virtual season episode. So, I'm writing it up and I'll probably be looking for beta readers in the near future before I submit it to that website. I'm about halfway through the first draft, but I can't say yet how long it will take me to finish it. Anyone interested in being a reader?
