Chapter Five

After Mia's, Tasha's and Sahsha's people landed, they commenced the Fifth Fleet's version of a pass-and-review or a trooping the colour, but just before its conclusion, what looked like a Tirosian suddenly came upon the scene, and commenced an attack run.

With expert management, though, Mia was able to disguise the attack as if it was just part of the elaborate air show.

The pilot was caught and an interrogation was started, but Mia couldn't help because they just started the reception for the conference.

DANNY
Chapter 42
by Roberta J. Cabot

This is a story about Daniel, a guy with a unique talent and an even more unique problem: A great singing voice and the looks of his gorgeous sister. And how he and his family deal with his having breasts. And how he ends up as the female lead singer for a high-school cover band as well as a radio DJ.

The band's first real concert was a complete success, and, with all the planning involved and their flawless execution, the identities of Robin, Dannie, Daniel and Danielle were fully cemented. What was next for everyone - no one knew. But one thing's for sure - there's never a dull moment with Batch Fourteen, and Dan & his gang.

Seeya later!

Hey, guys.

So we're leaving for our trip tonight. In about an hour actually (7am Thursday Eastern over there). But I'll be seeing all of you again Monday evening (or about 9am Monday Eastern over there). Therefore no stories until Monday.

I'll still be logging on from time to time within that period, so I won't be completely out of contact with you guys here in the Bigcloset. Feel free to comment or PM or whatever, and I'll respond as soon as I see 'em.

Chapter Four

Tasha's and Sahsha's "mission" to Earth and their short conference with Dr. Isabella Puerrot answered many of their questions about being able to have a baby.

For Sahsha, it was almost a sure thing, and she would be able to have a child by Mia through standard AI, or if that didn't work, she could still try for one by using the process known as EECF-SCPI, or the process where a human egg cell is fertilized without the use of sperm.

As for Tasha, even with the blood and tissue samples she provided, the doctor's analysis showed it was not a sure thing. After all, Tasha was an Elyran and Mia was an Earther. Common sense would tell anyone that this was an impossibility. But Tasha had collected evidence that it might actually be possible, including a photograph of an intriguing Elyran sculpture many millennia old.

But all that was put on the back-burner. At the moment, they had some things they had to take care of.

In the last chapter, Danielle was able to get through yet another song, as she substituted for her brother, and sang as Dannie. What a relief! At least Danielle won't be doing that with the rest of the songs in the concert (Fair warning - Chapter 40 is yet another musical chapter!).

Indeed: never a dull moment with Batch Fourteen, and Dan & his gang.

As Mrs. Piper watched Danielle singing, she contemplated her plans for the station, and how Danny was so essential to them. As she watched the show, behind the scenes, Danny did his Nighthawk program from the fake booth that Tracey set up.

Chapter 39 is yet another musical chapter. Be prepared!

Truly, there never is a dull moment with Batch Fourteen, and Dan & his gang.

Chapter Three

To the public, the upcoming event that the Elyran Royal Family will be hosting on Earth was just another of those events that they had from time to time, but even these events were of great interest, simply because of Mia, the famous "warrior queen of Earth." And having one of these events on Earth was just just a normal byproduct of Mia being from Earth.

For the Earthers, though, this was a pretty big deal. It was doubly exciting because it was Mia's birthday a few days after this event, and the preparations being done at the Sciolian Isles had been the subject of continuous coverage by the Earth media, and it just ramped up the excitement factor day-by-day.

What everyone knew about the event was it was one of Queen Tasha's, Princess Mia's and Duchess Sahsha's pet science projects - some sort of exploration thing. But what Marjorie discovered showed that it wasn't really any ordinary project, and was something more mysterious than what the royals were telling.

In any case, Mia was racing from Colossus, whereas Marjorie and her fellow grad students were onboard a special flight from Triton, and Tasha and Sahsha, onboard Talon, were already near Earth.

The gang sucessfully got Danielle on-stage as Danny's substitute, and no one noticed. Whew! Danny, now Robin, started his Nighthawk show, and prepared to get some callers on the air.

Never a dull moment with Batch Fourteen, and Dan & his gang.

So a major part of the plan for the concert was revealed - Danny was going to do his Robin-Nighthawk program from the Arclight! And Danielle was going to substitute for him on stage! Whether that would work, all will be revealed tonight.

Tonight's chapter is also going to be another musical chapter - not the full-on concert, but just a taste.

This just goes to show, there's never a dull moment with Batch Fourteen, and Dan & his gang.

The Real Score about Fanfiction and Fair Use

 

The Real Score about Fanfiction and Fair Use

Hi.

I was reading a blog here in the Big Closet, titled "Fan Fiction." (see https://bigclosetr.us/topshelf/blog-entry/79528/fan-fiction )

I was interested in the topic because I knew something about it because it's part of the work that I do, and I thought I could pick up something that may be useful at work next time I have to deal with the same thing again. And, besides, I have several fanfiction stories here.

Anyway, though I am not a lawyer, I've been fielding questions and issues relating DCMA, derivative works and Fair Use for a while now. So I have a fairly substantial knowledge about it, IMHO.

So I thought I'd share what I know about fanfiction and Fair Use (I know my facts are backstopped, but feel free to verify the things I say here if you want - I won't mind, though I ask that, if you disagree, that we not fight or argue, okay? Let's be civil).

Part Five: In Marianne's Own Words

by Roberta J. Cabot

Yet another scary night. At least it was all over now. For the moment, at least. That basement, and the ruins across the street from the library - they were ancient. Much older than the library.

I can only assume that the reason that basement, or whatever it was, was cleared out was because the university. Maybe they're thinking of using it for something, maybe an annex or a storage area for the library. But then, why was it inaccessible to everyone? In fact, it wasn't there when it was daytime.

And I suppose the whole purpose of Marie bringing me there was just to retrieve those diaries. I was burning to read them. Maybe I can do that when I got back to the apartment.But then I remembered I had a date, with Laurie the coffee girl. A date... Mon dieu. It is embarassing to admit it, but this would be my first date.

In any case, it was my dearest wish that Marie does not show up while I was on my date. Dates and fantôme - they do not go well together...

My name is Mark. And this is the continuation of my Halloween story.

And how he and his family deal with his having breasts. And how he ends up as the female lead singer for a high-school cover band as well as a radio DJ.

Janet, the former bandleader of Danny's rock band was apparently the one who sabotaged the concert, but it's unclear why. She seems to be in the middle of some psychotic breakdown. As for Danny and the band, they successfully recovered from Janet's sabotage attempt, and they, plus their Glee Club "do wop" backup singers, retired to their dressing rooms to prepare for their next set.

Never a dull moment with Batch Fourteen, and Dan & his gang.

The KRPQ concert started well, with Danny singing a reeeally old 80's song, but the audience ate it up. But as they prepared to start their second song, disaster struck! Someone sabotaged the lights! Still, Danny was able to improvise and keep the concert going. Whew! Never a dull moment with Batch Fourteen, and Dan & his gang.

Chapter Two

Drama, as there always was when the former councilor of Dravidia, Councilor Cor, was on the scene, and this time was no different.

Cor, trying to break the so-called Earth Alliance's growing influence in the Federation, made claims that the Earthers' influence on the Elyran and Federation economies was detrimental to the people, especially to the Elyrans, so he therefore filed a motion with the economic council to intervene on behalf of the Elyrans.

But even before a discussion of his motion could ensue, Mia called him out and demanded to see evidence to prove his accusations. But he didn't have any. His idea was, as it almost always happened, that the mere accusation would make the accused party capitulate and begin negotiations. But Mia didn't. So the Dravidians pulled their motion. It was yet another reason for the Earth-Dravidian feud to continue.

When the case was canceled, that meant Mia's trip to Colossus was for nothing... Still, there was some good news - since Mia didn't need to stay, she just might be able to make it to Earth in time for the start of the conference she was originally scheduled to attend. In fact, she might even arrive earlier than Tasha or Sahsha.

Part Three: Family Feud
 
by Roberta J. Cabot

 
Courtesy of Diane's witchy friend, Helen, all of their pets, I mean familiars, have all been provided proper papers and licenses, and after they got their new licenses and medalions, the girls were to go on to Union Square, one of the pet-friendly places in San Francisco that had a lot of places to shop and browse, but as they were on the way, they noticed dark stormclouds gathering at one of the tallest buildings in town.

It was weird because the rest of the town was totally bright and drenched in sunshine.

Taking it as an omen, the girls instantly decided to change plans and started making for the building. What they'd do once they got there, they didn't know.

But, hey, they were witches - what can happen?

As he and his gang worked hard to practice and prepare for the concert, Janet showed up, acting crazy, and hit their minibus with her car. They didn't know why she was acting like that. Was she on drugs or something?

Anyway, Chapter 34 is one of the special concert chapters. It's going to be a musical night tonight - lots of rockin' and rollin' here! And be sure to check the jukebox!

Yup. there is never a dull moment with Batch Fourteen, and Dan & his gang.

Practicing for the concert continued, and Danny's and the band's fans continued to grow, so much so that it took Tom Hennessy and his friends to keep everyone in line and things bearable. Yep, Tom Hennessy. The gang also started the ball rolling on "The Plan," i.e. letting everyone think that it was actually Danielle who was Dannie-the-singer. It seemed to be working, but for how long, nobody knew. Never a dull moment with Batch Fourteen, and Dan & his gang.

Chapter One

Marjorie Quinn was given the opportunity to meet her hero, Princess Amelia, one of the princess consorts to the Elyran queen, Queen Tasha Liaran-Kerr, and also the person who engineered the victory over the Tirosians and the Detterex and therefore made the peace that the Federation was currently enjoying possible.

She was going to ride one of EarthForce's new so-called "halo flights" that would take off directly from Triton Station and then, in mere days, would land directly on Earth. From there, she'd get to meet Mia, and maybe even Duchess Sahsha and the queen! She couldn't help wonder what this new project of hers was, but it must be big if it involved CETI.

Meanwhile, Mia, Tasha and Sahsha were working out some family concerns even as they worried about Federation-related concerns...

Part Four: Broken Brick Wall

by Roberta J. Cabot

Being chased by a bunch of zombified students was not my idea of a restful Saturday night at the movies. To be fair, though, I didn't think the kids were expecting to spend their Saturday being zombies, either.

Given that Marie was helping me get away from them, I'm sure she wasn't responsible for the kids. But who was? In just two days, the it's as if the details of my life were slowly being rewritten. Like a book undergoing a redraft. But the changes weren't bad. I had friends now, two of them gorgeous babes who apparently were my best friends, and I now seem to be closer to mother.

Sure, there were things that weren't exactly stuff I was hoping for, or actually want - things like changes to my body, or that I am now plagued by a French-speaking ghost and a bunch of zombies.

I have to understand what this is all about, because everything is starting to become too crazy.

My name is Mark. And this is the continuation of my Halloween story.

The night he and Nikki spent together was everything they hoped for, but when they checked out, they noticed that two of the pictures that the girls from the hotel took of them during dinner were now mounted on the wall above the reception counter, together with pictures of other celebrities.

When they decided to go down to have some dinner at the hotel restaurant, some of the hotel staff made the connection between him and the singer in the band, Unlimited Bandwidth. He and Nikki protested that it was a case of mistaken identity, but the girls who recognized him still insisted on autographs and pictures. Oh, well.

Part Two: A Familiar Cat
 
by Roberta J. Cabot

 
Kim is now a girl – a girl who was supposed to take over for his sister Kaye as part of a quartet of witches, for a purpose that he didn’t know anything about, except that it’s important. But before that, he needed to know how to work his newly-acquired powers even though he didn’t know what powers they were yet. But maybe he needed to get a handle on this girl thing first. Well, at least he had the help of Kaye’s witch friends, as well as the help of four new, furry… housemates.

Author’s Note: No long-winded author’s note this time. Except that… it seems this story is the least popular of the stories I’ve written so far (not that I’ve written a lot heehee). Even so, hope you guys give it a chance nevertheless. BUT! Be warned – this is a verrry sentimental kind of story, with buckets of sugar-sweet scenes sprinkled liberally throughout. If that’s not your type of story, stay away from this one. ;-)

Tonight was the first time for Danny to make love with Nikki. Indeed, it was his first time. Period. And it was incredible, to say the least. Danny was no virgin anymore, and it remains to be seen how this would impact his relationship with Nikki but, needless to say, their night together was just the start of a new world for him. Things were looking up for Danny. There never is a dull moment with Batch Fourteen, and Dan & his gang.

Danny, is more than excited for his first night alone with his gorgeous girlfriend, and is hardly able to sit still in his excitement. They really didn't fool anyone, though - the gang knew what they were planning. Nevertheless, they aided and abetted the two, and covered for them with the parental units. Never a dull moment with Batch Fourteen, and Dan & his gang. (Warning: Explicit content ahead.)

Prologue

After more than 15 Earth years after what the Earthers have started to call "New Armstice Day" - the day when the Detterex surrendered and the official cessation of all hostilities between the allies, the Detterex and the Tirosians was declared - life had gone back to normal, or what passed for normal in the Greater Galactic Arm of the Milky Way Galaxy, and an unexpected peace descended on the people.

But there were those in the Federation that felt they wanted the old status quo back, and only Princess Mia, the lord admiral of the Elyran navy as well as the admiral of EarthForce's Fifth Fleet, her wife, Duchess Sahsha, diplomat and fellow Earther, and her other wife, Queen Tasha, the new ruler of the Elyrans, were the only ones who stood in the way of the Dravidians and the so-called Tirosian mutiny fleet.
