Default March 25



Man... right now in the staff forum we're discussing ideas for something special to celebrate the upcoming sixth anniversary, and I'm just waiting for one of the guys to say "We could try updating."


All I can say is it's been a lousy couple of months. I'll keep working on it. And I guess it's not like anyone familiar with 5M.net finds these dry periods unusual or surprising. All of this has happened before, and all of it will happen again. (So say we all.)


Anyway, two items today. First, since it's been such a long wait, here's something special: our first Farscape fiver in three years! It's "Mental As Anything" by 5MF newcomer Derek Dean. (He's determined to get something in every subsite, I think.) This one comes with an unusual spoiler warning -- there are mild spoilers for the first season of Veronica Mars. So if you don't want to find out it was actually Backup who killed Lilly, don't read it.


Second, I've finally made a page for the 5MTV category, thus restoring access to some fivers which were previously listed on the defunct Sci-Fivers page. (Stay tuned for next week when I finally make the site Y2K-compliant!)

I completely deny that totally true statement.

Wow -- because the Mr. Terrific thing was craftily repeated, I thought there wasn't an update. Then I did a Roger Rabbit double take. Woo hoo! Stealth updates!

What a coincidence. I had just started watching an episode of Farscape on TV (practically the only Farscape episode I have ever watched) when I came here and found that there was a new Farscape fiver. Exciting.

I, for one, didn't realise it was a mistake. I thought it was in in-joke...:$

I totally thought it was on purpose, and you were making a joke about how lame it would be for Mr. Terrific to show up on Firefly. A sentiment I totally agreed with...

Hey, any new Firefly, Mr. Terrific or no, would be fine by me.

Wait a sec. Why are we talking about Firefly, anyway?

Because I said Firefly when I meant to say Firescape. I mean, Farfly. I mean -- damn it, where is my brain? It was here a minute ago...
