A reboot

I am thinking about rebooting Del Floria's with a round of new interview questions. These would be more tailored to the interviewee. Would anyone be interested in sitting down with me for a discussion about fandom and life in general?

The interviews would run the first part of the month - I'm thinking the first Sunday, if all goes well.

Is anyone interested? I have posted a link if anyone would like to read some of the older interviews.

Thanks!

You are invited!

Come join the fun with the mfuwss Four Elements Drabble Challenge!

This week's prompt is
Buried!

Greetings! From the middle of 2016 to the end was nota goodtime for me. I went back to take care of my mom, who is 95, and had fallen and suffered a stroke. I had to listen out for her when she wanted to get around her apartment because she could no longer walk like she used to and it was frustrating to her. I was under a lot of pressure, and depression, because every time my cousins and I suggested something that would help her, she became very stubborn and argumentive.

I stayed until August. Doing that time I tried to keep myself occupied with writing; but, with the situation, I finally lost interest. When I got back to California I worried about a lot; plus, since my roommates and I are leasing the house - five rooms two bathrooms - we had to get it ready for inspection by the landlord.

2017 didn't start off too well, either. My roommates and I had health issues - for which I ended up in the hospital several times. Plus my T-Mobile phone died and I lost all my data.

The recent loss of Robert Vaughn, and other media icons, didn't help much, either.

Anyway, now that things are better - mom is living in New Jersey with my sister and is doing well as can be expected - and I have a better laptop, I am getting back into my writing. I have several 'follow up stories that I have finished; and, to contact the authors so each can look what I wrote over. If I get permission to post them I will do so.

Oh, and I am in Tuskegee, Alabama helping my Aunt take care of my Uncle.

So, thank you for reading my ramblings. Live Long and Prosper

Time of year of an episode?

Hi, does anyone know if season 1's The Odd Man Affair mentions a time of year when it takes place? I keep thinking that somewhere in the episode it specified June (or possibly April), but I'm not sure. It would be more helpful to me fic-wise if it took place near autumn (or if I can say it did), but I can work with June if need be.

Posting for Lisa Madden - Kuryakin Files

Hi all,

Just letting you know I am slowly converting all the issues of Kuryakin Files (MFU gen) fanzine to pdf format. There are 36 total issues — longest running fanzine as far as I know — and issues 12 thru 36 are now available as pdf documents. Just converted issues 12-17. Hopefully the rest in the next few months!!

This makes them quite inexpensive, which is the whole reason! Each issue is only $5.00. Considering some of the issues are close to 300 pages, this is definitely a better deal than print!

If interested, please contact me off the list with any questions.

BTW, will be at MWC next week and WILL have a few print copies of the later zines, and a few CD’s with 12 issues available for purchase.


Thanks for keeping the dream alive all these years!!


Lisa

some fanarts!

Hello there Network Command! I'm new to livejournal and relatively new to the muncle fandom! I've recently taken a liking to old tv shows (50s-60s...sometimes 70s) although they were pretty hard to find (as well I was only focused on russian media for a little while...idk why though but they're good!). The new uncle film peaked my interest but when I found out it was based on an old show I was on that train like nobody's business...and then I learnt there was a giant (and ancient) fanbase! Anyway, I have more about myself on my own page but most importantly I like to do art and drawings and animations. And I have made a bit of fanart already and I though I'd might share some with you!!!

here are some sketchbook drawings, I like some of these, not too much all of them though.


some napollya stuff, although I did this before I knew how to draw the characters very well so it's not perfect :/




and yesterday I did this little animation of Illya! I'm so happy with how it turned out!


overall, I really hope to do some more stuff like the animation above, but also static fanart too! I hope you like my cartoony style....oh and if you have any requests, I'll totally try and get them done! anything for an excuse to draw the boys!

I'm mostly active on tumblr and there are some more muncle fanarts on there as well, so if you want, you can check me out there.

If you can get YouTube pull up David's appearances on 'An

Evening with Carol Channing 1966'. Our David displays his wicked sense of humor among other

talents.

OT: OUR DAVID ON "THE ANDY WILLIAMS SHOW"

On GetTV, yesterday, David was a guest star. The episode was from 1965. It was hilarious!! David has a wicked sense of humor. For those missed, I won't do a spoiler. All I can do is encourage you no miss the rerun on Jan 10th. If you don't get GetTV, you can call it up on YouTube. Warning the YouTube version is shorter than what was actually shown.

Author: Romanse
Betas: CindyB (chapters 1-11) Di T (chapters 12-23), PeriWinkle (Chapters 24-27), and Jazline, (chapters 1 – 26, 28)
All remaining mistakes are mine. Not Beta’d yet, but will be.
Summary: Illya's having a bad day, but Napoleon has his back.
Warnings: Slash, IK/NS, H/C, Drama, Angst, First-Time
This story is dedicated to Jazline and ChannelD - you both know why

Notes: Three things: 1) I've decided to dust off a few early art pieces to post in some of the chapters just because I feel like it. This chapter's piece is a very old one called, "Temptation". 2) Previous chapters of this fic are being added to AO3. 3) Many years ago I received this note from the son of a real-life person mentioned in Chapter 2. It still makes me smile to this day:
Romanse ; Mon 3/17/2008 2:05 PM
Hello, Romanse, I just wanted to let you know that I was delighted to
discover (via google alert) your mention of my father, Leonard
Scherlis M.D., in "The Misplaced Agent Affair Part 3."

And your mention was very appropriate to my dad's intent. He
certainly didn't discover "closed chest massage," which had been
mentioned in medical documents for generations. But he did push the
populist agenda of making this technique available to everyone, not
simply the medical establishment.

So thanks very much for that. My father died over a year ago,and
this was a pleasant reminder of him, and his values.

And also, of course, your work brings back memories of watching "The
Man from U.N.C.L.E." when I was young, and that sort of show could be
aired without irony.

Best regards,
Dan Scherlis
