One day back in April, 2001, I was watching my very favorite television show, Farscape, which was airing an episode called, "Eat Me." By the end of the episode, our hero, John Crichton, had been split into two equal and identical copies of himself, and both of them claimed to be the "real" Crichton. The last image on my television screen that night was that of the two Crichtons playing Rock, Scissors, Paper and tying every time. They were not happy campers!
Neither was I.
At the time, the show was about to go on hiatus for nearly two months, and I wasn't prepared to wait that long to find out what was going to happen next. And I really couldn't stand the idea of that grim game being repeated over and over. So, I bit the bullet, and wrote a little addendum, in which Aeryn Sun came and broke up the contest... Well, who else were they going to listen to, after all?
A friend encouraged me to post that little snippet on the old Sci Fi Channel board, which I did, to positive response – and I haven't stopped writing Farscape fic since, through two more seasons, cancellation, the Save Farscape campaign, and the glorious miniseries, Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars.
You'll find all my Farscape fic collected here on
