"Ben and Dean: the Mark scene" for elucreh's birthday! (Dean/OMC, PG)

Hi, everybody!

So, back in scene eight, Ben made a blink-and-you'll-miss-it reference to his friend Mark. And then something wonderful happened - I got feedback that stunned me, because I'd never considered that an original character I'd created to basically be an ass to Sam in "Sunshine State" would strike a chord with anyone. But Mark apparently did, and elucreh squeefully asked for his POV on Dean landing on his doorstep. For proof, I offer this quote from Lu: "(Um. Cough. I may have, kind of, a Mark. Thing. You know. I think partially because I treat people my friends are in love with who I can't trust in the exact same way.)" Crazy, no? Anyway, I decided to take a crack at it, and this is the result. Happy birthday, Skip! And my love, as always, to janissa11 for getting into the spirit (and how!) and doing her usual stellar beta-work on this.

As always, I'd love to hear what you think.

Veronica Mars: Season 4 Preview

I just found a copy of the "Special Agent Veronica Mars" preview for what would have been season 4, and I thought I'd share. It's only about ten minutes long, and it stays strictly with Veronica's professional life; there's no indication of how any of the other characters from seasons one through three would have fit in, or if they would at all. There is also some fairly distracting recycling of actors - the woman who played Nish in season 3 and the man who played Andre in season 1 both have important roles - and it's not clear if they shot this preview with actors they were planning to keep or if this truly was just a teaser for the concept of Veronica in the FBI.

Disappointed as I was with seasons two and three, they still have some amazing moments, and I stand firm in my conviction that the first season is the best season of dramatic television I've ever seen - it was written, paced, and acted so vividly and intensely.

Anyway. Enough babble. Here are the links for downloading. part 1 and part 2. I'd appreciate a comment to let me know if you're snagging it.
