Post subject:  Ghostbusters: Picture Imperfect (Part 1)

I've been writing stories with an emphasis on Egon Spengler and Janine Melnitz's relationship since the beginning; the first fan fic I ever posted on GBN included some strong hints and the second dropped even more. I built an audience as I continued the story, culminating in their wedding and the birth of their twin children, fated to be literally the next generation of Ghostbusters

I sometimes worry that I've gotten myself pidgeonholed as the "Egon/Janine Guy". So having told the "big" stories, I drifted on to other things; other teams of Ghostbusters; Ray Stantz's love live; hobbit mating dances; and even romances that other franchises have fucked up.

Yeah, but some time ago, I realized there was one story I had to tell about the couple that brought me to the dance. One piece of the narrative that, due to a combination of creator politics and a perception of "this is a boys show and they hate this stuff", had barely been touched.

Ghostbusters: Picture Imperfect, Part One
January 1989--Timeline Year Seven
While Venkman and Winston are out of town, Egon and Ray get a call from the Manhattan Museum of Art, site of Vigo the Carpathian's recent defeat. Janine, meanwhile, finds herself questioning a lot of her recent activities while Ghostbusters' newest hire, Louis Tully, gets a surprise of his own.

Whatever happened to that painting during the 1992-97 period? I don't remember the Extreme team ever mentioning it...

Shows how long I've been gone. Came to reread my favorite story and found this! I know it's not really his fault, but Louis is still a dork...

I apologize for being a little extra distracted lately. Some of it's the usual stuff--other interests screaming for my time--some of it's been a lot more important real life stuff.

Well...the real answer is that as of 1997 in the real world all the writers though Vigo was completely gone and done with. It wasn't until 2009 that the idea that he was still knocking around came back into canon (though I remember more than one fan fic that brought him back, some particularly notable ones written by some of my favorite fan writers)

I'm working on it. Not as fast as I wish because of some of the stuff mentioned at the top of this post, but it's in progress.

Well, yeah, it's not his fault--his creators made him that way. :ugeek:

Take care of yourself, and do what you have to. We'll all still be here waiting. ((hug))

Thanks. Sorry for taking so long to reply. I try not to talk about personal stuff too much here, but I realized it was slowing down something that, at one point, I thought would have been done with by now so I felt like I owed at least a little bit of an explanation.
