It's an interesting chain of events regarding the Valjiir series. I met a Star Trek fan named Deloris Booker back in 1981, after calling the information number on a poster advertising a convention in Edmonton (not ST; the conventions in Alberta tend to have authors as guests). It was too late to arrange to attend that year, but she and I got talking... I went to the next year's convention, where I found a flyer for a fanzine called In A Different Reality. I'd been desperately wanting fanzines ever since reading about them in Star Trek Lives!, so I made contact with the IADR writers and ordered their zines. Along came the Valjiir series, and I was instantly hooked. The reason I mentioned Deloris' name is because she occasionally contributed poetry to IADR.Fast-forward a number of years... I eventually lost contact with the IADR authors when they ceased print publishing, and it was frustrating because I knew I'd missed the last issue and had no way to find it. Many years later I got online, and years after that, found TrekBBS. As I mentioned, I just asked a question in the Fanfiction forum, hoping - but not really expecting - an answer. After all, I was one of only two people I knew who were into IADR/Valjiir.To my surprise and delight, it was Dave Petterson who answered my question (he goes by a different name on TrekBBS). He sent me the link to the Valjiir site, and I was absolutely bowled over by how much more material has been added (and changed; some of those stories definitely wouldn't have seen print in IADR!). By now I've read most of what's there, and am completely in awe of all the talent shown in writing, artwork, and the dedication it takes to keep this going over so many years.I love the relationship between Noel DelMonde and Jeremy Paget! I found the idea of baby Doomsday Machines really creepy and disturbing, so your story worked. I'm not sure what you mean by a separate membergroup - do you mean a usergroup? An area of the forum that's members-only for the members of that group?
Just a usergroup - if there was a reason to have a "Groovy all-girl world now!" private folder, that would allow me to make it visible to only the wimmin members, but my purpose here is only to replace the postcount-based rank that displays under your handle, ("Drone" until you make another post) with something Ladylike...
Was the alternate story you wanted to see more of "Secret Seas"? I liked that one too. I'll pass along the request, if you like. Feedback really helps get her engines going.
In the meanwhile, you two please work out a name for the womans' usergroup - maybe something like "Power Princess" w/ the same magic lady icon Mylochka is already sporting from the GotM group?
