A scary thought
What effect to you think Katrina will have on big_brian_o writing his fic, "Burn"?

I desperately love this fic, and am worried that he won't continue it, because the New Orleans of his timeline no longer exists.

I'm not asking to incorporate Katrina - just the opposite, in fact... I just hope that we can continue with our happy little view of a proud and strong New Orleans, rather than a battered, damaged one - or even worse, none at all.

Because I think the world would be a worse place if he stopped writing about Burn.

Thoughts?

my 2 cents

Speaking a someone who loves Big B to death, both as a friend and a writer, I hope he doesn't use it. B's is still pretty self conscious of his writing still. I hope he continues the tale as it is. Personally I'd rather him not incorporate it in because it would no longer be a Brian/Boyd tale; it would be a Katrina tale. At the most a comment in tribute would be okay. This is just a real life event to new to use in a fic.

Re: my 2 cents

No, no! I didn't want him to use it. I want things to go on as they were.

I was just worried that he would feel it is not seemly to write about New Orleans at all right now, which would stop the fic. And I really, really don't want that to happen.

Re: my 2 cents

Okay, I get you. I hope he does too.

Re: my 2 cents

You think I should delete this and the other post? Because I'd hate to be the one to inadvertently cause him to stop writing.

I was really just looking for reassurance that the fic would continue.

Maybe ask Cael. Not sure how much he surfs LJ.

I think he should just continue to write it and not incorporate it. When can remember New Orleans as it was.

ITA. I don't want it incorporated. I must not have made that clear.

I thought you made it clear; I was just agreeing with you! I really hope Brian continues the story.

I'm glad you got me. I think others might be mistaking what I'm saying...

I'm a Burn-aholic, and I don't wanna get the cure!

Or should I say... the only cure is another great chapter!

*raises hand*

I want Burn the way it is now. I am too in love with it for it to change. I actually just typed Burnt by mistake while typing...hmmmm...wonder what that means.

qafhappy From: qafhappy Date: September 2nd, 2005 01:43 am (UTC) (Link)
I don't want it to change either. But I want him to continue writing the fic, not letting it go because New Orleans doesn't exist anymore as it did.

I guess I can't seem to state it very well... everyone keeps thinking I want Katrina in it, and I DON'T!!

I just want my Burn to continue on, and on, and on...

*hyperventilates*
kimberbaby From: kimberbaby Date: September 2nd, 2005 12:32 pm (UTC) (Link)
No! No Katrina!

*hands you a bag*

We totally agree. Burn must live a long, long life.

It is my happy shelter from the world.

Last I heard from them, he had no intention of using Katrina in his fic and was intending to continue with it. That may or may not change, but that was the last word.

I'm so, so glad to hear that! I love that story so much, and would hate to see it disappear.

Thanks for the update, and tell those boys to have fun (but to take it easy on the knee!)
