I might as well declare Sub Rosa done, for now. It was fun, but it was more of a roleplaying substitute than a real project, and the fun of roleplaying is in playing with other people, so obviously it was doomed. Or, to put it another way, it was just a way of reacting to a bunch of stuff such as Buffy and Veronica Mars and the concept of a season arc and so on, and once I got past that there wasn't much there, so it was doomed*. Or, to put it another way, what am I going to do with an imaginary tv show? There was nothing to sustain it -- no useful goal -- so once the initial shiny wore off, it was doomed.

Or so I say with 20/20 hindsight. Actually, I let it get to be too much work. If I could have let it actually be writing exercises, I'm sure I could really use plot practice, for example. But now it's gone stale, so there's probably no point.

Anyway, I was cleaning out and found few fragments sitting around that I might as well put here to join the rest, so if I ever want to find them in the future it will all be right here.

* I lie. I still think the characters are great fun. The plot, now...yeah, sort of boring and derivative.

Tate & Ina interact in the second episode -- you couldn't actually say this on tv, ah well )
