"Did you just say baby buggy? Last time I checked, baby buggies weren't required equipment on Coast Guard Cutters."

"Yes. Well. See, it kind of happened like this...

NOTES: This story was written for the 2017 Secret Santa story for Franscats. My muse took off on an extended vacation right after Christmas, so part two was finished. Fast forward a few...months (try seven) and the muse walked in as if he'd never been gone. The jerk. Tan too. But I was finally able to get back to answering the great question of how the Volvo met its end, and what the heck a baby buggy had to do with it. Gotta tell ya, Simon was pretty angry with me too, since he was left hanging along with Franscats and the few others who read part one
NOTES, THE SEQUEL: I must thank Franscats for her patience and understanding, which went beyond measure considering she's waited almost a year!
I must also thank the magnificent Magician/Merlin/Regina because without her, this wouldn't have been finished at all. The woman literally came to my home (brought lots of goodies), sat in my rollator, and literally typed as I dictated the conclusion! Later, she had to walk me through loading at my LJ as it's been so long, I forgot how to do things (it came back, thank God). And she walked me through the AO3 process as the memory of that was also long gone. in an effort to truly thank her, I've immortalized her within the story - have fun finding where. She's already immortalized within the fandom as our "go-to gal" when it comes to where to find stories and who wrote them, but she's now established herself as a great writer as well, so she's now immortalized in someone else's story! Again, have fun finding her.

Everyone says Trump supporters can't be changed - but I say they're wrong. Why? Because the majority grew up during the Cold War era where our hatred and fear of Soviet Russia was in high gear. Even today, the word communist is still a dirty word in their world and is the worst thing a person can be labeled.

For Trumpsters, the United States coming under communist rule would be a fate worse than death. And now they're watching their beloved leader embracing a communist country; our primary foe for over 80 years, Worse still, they've watched their beloved leader embracing Russia's unscrupulous murderous, communist dictator.

So how does any of that help fight Fox News in order to get real facts out to the Trumpsters?

For me a light bulb finally went off and the answer became simple. First we remove the word "news" because we know they're not news nor do they have true journalists. So what do we replace it with? That's the next step: we rebrand them in a way that tells everyone what they really are:

THE FOX COMMUNIST PROPOGANDA CHANNEL


From now on, we never say Fox News, instead, we use their real title, THE FOX COMMUNIST PROPOGANDA CHANNEL, because that's what they are; a machine that disseminates fascist communist propaganda.

But how we say it is as important as saying it. For instance, don't emphasize it, nor say it as if trying to teach something or tell them, or attach and a great importance to it. Instead, say it as if it were the most normal thing in the world; much the way you'd say the title of any other show. Like;
"Oh, I'm going to watch Hawaii Five-O tonight."
Or,"Did you watch America's Got Talent last night?" Or "You know, that Fox Communist Propaganda Channel really scares me." Or, "Oh no, I couldn't possibly watch The Fox Communist Propaganda Channel, it's opposite the Housewives of Atlanta!"

Yes, it'll take time; time to get used to it ourselves and time to make it a part of our new lexicon. We've got to practice and practice so that it trips over the tongue as easily as the old name. And yes, it will work, I've already seen it happen, so give it a try.

And remember we're not going after the hardcore supporters because they're white supremacists who, once they've lost a leader who's given them a mainstream voice, will go back into the woodpile they crawled out of, so no, our targets are the our neighbors, family members who took a very wrong right turn, and everyone else we meet, talk with or can get to through social media.

So go forth with the rebranding of machine formerly known as Fox News but is now The Fox Communist Propaganda Channel!

It'll work - honest.
And don't forget to spread this new logo as far and wide as you can.

Welcome to my Journal

This is where I jabber, blather, ramble, rant and comfortably insert foot in mouth as often as humanly possible. You may also find posts with art in the form of icons, wallpapers, banners and story cover art, thanks to discovering Photoshop a few years ago. I love creating fandom artwork almost as much as writing. Everything else you need to know about this journal or me can be found under the cut (including samples of my 'artwork' in the form of icons, banners, cover art; which are also links to the stories, and even samples of a few photo restorations I've done). You'll find more samples at my photo_fixer journal.

My stories (in The Sentinel, SG1 & SGA fandoms) are archived in several places, with one link under the cut while the others are on the left side of my journal under, appropriately enough: LINKS *g*.
That's about it, so continue on - at your own risk!

Don't forget to click on the lj cut!

Oh, and we have a fandom "Phone Tree" list (to help notify people when we lose one of our own) and if you'd like to be on it, you can find the info here.

I still have work to do on Jake and The Beast but wanted to thank everyone who were so kind to give it a read and leave comments. It's been 10 years of being unable to write, but maybe now the muses have returned. In the meantime, as starwatcher307 pointed out, maybe Jim wasn't such a good name-giver after all, so while I do some work on the Jake snippet, anyone want to come up with other names for The Beast, aka "Queenie"?

A story. No, barely a snippet (2,000 words), but I managed to write something. I know, shocked the hell out of me too. Nevertheless, I put words together, based on a beautiful photograph. Jake Universe, you've been warned.
