Rewriting

Hi. Those of you who're fans of my SG-1 slashfic might have read the Trinity series. In that series, I introduce a few OCs.

The best (favorite of mine) is Adriann, a vampire. He's from a species, not that undead crap. I've been rewriting him in my head for a while and I'm getting ready to edit his stories.

Now, it's common for us fanfic writers to go back and edit old material, but I wanted to warn those of you who're fans of Trinity XV, when Adriann and his kin are introduced. I'm in the process of editing it and when it's done, I'll reupload the new version at AO3, where I have my fic housed.

I'll apologize ahead of time for those of you who like the Adriann stories as they are. I'm just not satisfied with the way they're written. I'll be deleting some things that are unnecessary, and it'll be tricky since following unedited chapters will have content that is out of sync with the newly edited. When you come across something that's unsynced (as of yet), say so and I'll make a note for my future editing. I'm not someone who hates being criticized (constructively).

As for WHY, well ... I'm currently STILL writing Trilogy 14 and frankly, I need to get back into the universe and mindset b/c it's not going as well as I'd like.

Adriann looked down at the unconscious young man, a flood of conflicting desires filling his mind and body. He was a beautiful human and the desire to bite, to fuck, to enthrall, was nearly overwhelming. Nearly. His long years of experience were honed to perfection and it would be easy to simply dismiss him and move on. But there was something about this young man.

He knelt on one knee and brushed the auburn brown locks from the man’s brow and studied his face. He’d glimpsed his mind, knew he was an archaeologist, a linguist, a peace-loving man, so what was he doing traveling with a military team? Exploration certainly, but that was not what they were doing here on his planet. They were searching for something. If the stunning beam, triggered due to the unexpected presence of the uninvited visitors, hadn’t done its job so quickly, Adriann would have known why they were here.

He sighed. Those conflicting desires were now forced to wait. On the other hand, he could kill this beautiful human and his companions and send them back through the portal as a warning. He could let them live and send them back. He could keep them, ensnaring them for entertainment. It’d been a while since he’d had a human from Earth.

The human stirred and Adriann froze, a frown marring his own handsome face. What to do. He placed the tip of his index finger on the center brow of the young man and closed his eyes in concentration. The young man was dreaming. The images were dark, troubling. That made sense. His mind was trying to figure out why he’d been stunned into unconsciousness.

Adriann detected worry for one of his companions and understood the meaning: the older man lying next to him was his mate. With a heavy sigh, he stood up, hating that his wisest course was to send them back through the portal. He hated complications — like interfering with another’s romantic relationship. With his abilities, he could simply take control and wipe the relationship from the young man’s mind, but coercion and mind control had never been his way.

“Too bad,” he whispered as he moved to the pedestal and pressed the glyphs. “You would have been a wonderful lay.”

A woman appeared at his side and he didn’t need to look to know his sister’s presence as she touched his mind. “You are sure? It has been a while, Adriann. We could use their blood.”

“I know. But …”

“Yes.”

“I can’t just …”

“Yes you can. You’ve done it often enough to others who’ve found their way here.”

“This is different.”

“How?”

“I could fall in love with him.”

She sighed and stooped to pick the young man up in her arms. “Stop dithering, Adriann. If you want him, I’ll take him up to the house. If you don’t, I’ll set him back down. Decide.”

The need filled his mind, coloring it with loneliness. “Go on then,” he said, and looked over his shoulder at the waiting servants. “Take the rest and make them comfortable. We shall decide later what to do with them.”

“Yes, my lord,” said one.

Adriann’s body warmed, from his belly to between his legs, and the long-absent refreshment doubled. His canines lengthened in anticipation.

I've been looking through photos for other Trinity/Trilogy characters to "paint", especially those secondary characters who aren't always front and center. So I thought of Jason's team, SG-2, and his 2IC, Alex Wagner, is an easy one since he looks like Paul Walker, but with brown eyes. I started to look for the pics that describe the other two team members and after a bit of research through Trinity and Trilogy, I realized that I've never fully described their appearances. At first, they were "background" characters, but I then gave them personalities and spouses so why the hell hadn't I ever given them descriptions?

*sigh*

I think I've found the character creation software. It's 3D. Here's hoping I can actually work with it. Even better, create 3D models of Daniel, Jack, Jason, Adriann, Sam, Teal'c, etc., etc., ad nauseam.

See, back in the old days, before my goddamn carpal tunnel, I drew everything. I have my computer now, and so I have a tablet and pen, and I went about learning it all with glee. Trouble is, the carpal tunnel is bad with that, too. It's the holding of the pen (or pencil) that does it. Numbness, tingling, sharp zaps of lightning up the middle of the wrist... yada yada blah blah blah shit.

So, I've been looking for something that will let me skip all the flat drawing. Give me a generalized face, with the average placements of eyes, nose, mouth, and I'll take it from there, tweaking until I've got it all right. Then let me add hair, makeup, clothing, etc. I just might be able to render pictures of my characters, and then be able to use them for fiction headings and general art rendering pages instead of having to hunt through thousands of screen captures looking for something that looks right---in this case, SG-1 characters and episode pics.

*sigh* So, crossing fingers that the learning curve is for morons. ;)

Well, 50% of him anyway.

Adriann

My OC, Adriann. As much as I could do for him. The mouth is wrong, the brows are wrong, the cheekbones need to be higher. His eyes need to be bigger.

Ya know, if I could just find a program to buy that helps me create a person, visually, in the same way that you might use for describing a criminal (fcol), I'd buy it. The only thing I've found so far is 3D Imaging. Nope, don't need that. I'm a moron when it comes to modeling in 3D.

Anyways. This is what I'm up to while I mentally labor over my next bit of writing. ;)

Talenn, OC from my SG1 fanfic

Been fooling about with avatars and came across this D&D-type site. Thought of my OC, Talenn (old spelling, Talen -- I gave her two 'n's b/c her brother Adriann has two 'n's), so I messed about until I got something that was 50% close enough. ;) Her hair needs to be longer, mouth fuller and narrower, eyes should be light grey, she needs to be wearing suede and silk in the colors of twilight, and the sword designs should be made of bone with etching. BUT, all in all, given this avatar creator, here she sort of is anyway. ;)
