2 Kempt Arrangements A look at Richard and Hyacinth Bucket from the TV show "Keeping Up Appearances". Hyacinth has found something new to fret about, and drags Richard into the discussion - if by discussion you mean she talks and he listens. I don't own these characters, and this story literally has no plot.

7 Talia Lives » After Lyta Alexander sent the telepathic code to Talia Winters, the personality implanted in her mind took control and wiped out all that was Talia Winters. Or did it? One shot. I originally left the story open-ended, but I've added a 2nd chapter to tie it up. I don't own these characters, and I'm not "The One".

1 Educating Frank Independence takes many forms. At the end of the 1983 movie "Educating Rita" Frank Bryant got sent away to Australia for unbecoming conduct, and Susan "Rita" White became emancipated from her old life. Perhaps they read Walt Whitman's "Afoot and lighthearted I take to the open road, healthy, free, the world before me." I don't own these characters, but I do drink iced tea.

2 Misplaced in Transition Bill Murray is an aging actor who flies to Japan to make a commercial in the 2003 movie "Lost in Translation" and reflects on his own life while in a culture and language foreign to him. The final scene involves him whispering something unheard to Scarlett Johansson; the movie title begs to play a game with it. I don't own these characters or a Babel Fish.
