I spent Easter resurrecting Pike. Let's all be shocked.

Title: A Moment in Time
Author: Alethia
Pairing: Michael Burnham/Christopher Pike
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1643

Author's Notes: Post-season Pike fix-it fic that spans both Discovery and TOS because I'm fixing all of it, dammit. I blame theislandergirl for getting this stuck in my head when I should be working on that other story that's getting too long. Also posted here.

Summary: Chris shook his head at her, helpless. "Michael, you can't."

"I can. I did," she said, vehement, as if daring him to refute what his own eyes could see. "You always do what's honorable. I'm doing what's right. Some sacrifices are too much, Chris."

Title: A New Story
Author: Alethia
Pairing: Michael Burnham/Christopher Pike
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1430

Author's Notes: I'm feeling Very Melancholy about the S2 finale, so the other story I'm writing is getting far longer than I expected. So here's a bite-sized post-ep for 2.11 "Perpetual Infinity." Also posted here.

Summary: "I've seen hundreds of permutations. I know all the variables in play. You have to tell him."

Michael's gut dropped out as she realized what her mom was saying. "Mom."

There, I fixed it. As they say, it writes itself.

WGA - Agency fight

I don't generally talk about Hollywood business here because who cares, but this news is industry-shaking, so in case anyone's interested in what's up: all WGA members are firing their agents tonight, in about an hour. This video simply and clearly explains the WGA's position on the conflicts of interest.

Hollywood press has been incredibly shitty on this (hilariously because of their own conflicts of interest), so if you're looking for info, don't go to sites like The Hollywood Reporter or Deadline or anything. WaPo had a good one a ways back: In a twist, Hollywood writers are feuding with an unlikely subject: Their own agents. Here's IndieWire more recently.

David Simon has been ON FIRE about this on twitter, btw. It's going to be a mess.

But the writers are righteous, essentially standing up to private equity and saying no.

ETA: To be clear, this isn't a strike and no currently-produced shows or movies will be affected. If anything, it'll slow down the development pipeline, but that's got a years-long horizon anyway. But it is a rare case of a bunch of artists pushing back at Wall Street in a meaningful way.

I've decided that Disco is the perfect fandom show: it's decent, with deeply engaging characters, but flawed enough that you can find lots of holes to tell stories in. If only it had started with more hot white guys so that fandom actually gave a shit.

I had to watch this one twice and really think on it.
