Corona has effectively made it impossible for me to work, but having no duties is a whole new experience; luckily I am still permitted to take care of the budgies who according o staff are a welcome distraction for the elderly as visits are restricted to three a week for one hour each. At least now the fitness centre is open again, and it is possible to meet a small group of friends, so that makes things easier as does the news that the pandemic is under control in our country.
Apart from writing stories, my hobbies are sciences, especially ecology, evolution, genetics, geophysics, and I am active in nature conservancy. As to reading, I'll accept nearly every topic apart from detective stories and romantic novels; romance invariably has the effect of a high dose of valium. American-style humour is something I also love - the vocalizations, the wordplays, the exaggerations...
My favourite peoples still are the Bajorans and the Cardassians so I ended up finagling my story line to be able to enjoy both. Admittedly, there is hardly any people I dislike in the series. Okay, so the Skreeans were not very prepossessing, but then, they were never mentioned again, so that the viewer could not get to really know them. Wonder what happened to them anyway... I'd be curious about how they experienced the Dominion War, or if they noticd it at all, but I'm not going to write that specific story. If someone wants the idea, take it and enjoy working on it.
Nearly all of my stories have been reworked, some of them massively, such as Transition or Developments and subsequently uploaded to A03 as I have not been able to find any possibility to edit stories that are over a year old on fanfiction.net. The last story in Beyond The Curtains of Fire, One People - One Goal is uploaded now after quite a bit of reworking and finally getting an ending. Now that my series is completed, I'll take some time off from writing and just see whether I get some ideas worth developing.
One thing I want to take up again is looking around for DS-9 stories - there should be a lot of new ones waiting to be read.
Reviews would be nice to get ... and if someone has an idea (apart from getting rid of my Gul), I'll happily consider it as long as it isn't slash or romance.
