Fanfiction etc. by Diandra Hollman

After years of nagging and with the now certainty that there will be more than the one season, we are recapping The Night Manager. Part one is up on the rarely used Television page.

And the second half of the second season of What If is up on the MCU page.

We did the first half of the second season of What If. It's on the MCU page.


We finished the second half of Loki, season 2. Also...I did a quick run through the two MCU movies I said I wouldn't do because "What If" did callbacks that forced me to review a bunch of stuff before I can start that recap. I also went back and edited/added references to Of Dubious and Questionable Memory.

We did the first half of Loki, season 2, which is on the Marvel page. Second half will not be done until after the new year. And I am officially now in a printed publication on fanfiction, which I wrote years before I finished the story I refer to in the essay: Of Dubious and Questionable Memory.

Finally finished the Star Trek trilogy that might be headed for a fourth installment. Beyond is on the movies page. I also edited the Loki recap ahead of doing season 2.

I finished my years-long Sherlock novel "Of Dubious and Questionable Memory" on AO3 to all the response I had given up on getting. It took more than a week, but I finally got it formatted so it can have a home here. It is fitting that my last Sherlock story was the thing that pushed me over two and a half million word count (recaps and fic combined), just as I entered my 40s.I may not have many good memories of the fandom and my brief time in it, but this made it all worth it.

New recap...let...of Wakanda Forever on the MCU page. I am getting close to finishing my final Sherlock story (not that anyone is still reading it apparently), so...fingers crossed, that update will happen soon.

Hi. Yeah, it's been a while. And all I have done is brief recaps of the first and third Ant Man. Summer is busy. As proven by the fact that I didn't ACTUALLY upload this update until two days after I updated the pages.

Finished the rest of She Hulk. Also finished a Stony MCU story and made a brand new page for MCU fanfic for it to go on since I seem to keep writing in this fandom.

Finally getting to She Hulk. Man, I'm slowing down on the recaps. Probably a good thing. Find it on the MCU page.

Took a bit of a break (I was writing fic during it...check AO3) and now preparing for "She Hulk" by doing a quick run through of "Love and Thunder" and "The Incredible Hulk". On the MCU page.

Did I say I was going back to previous formatting? Yeah, not for the second Star Trek. "Into Darkness" recap now up on the general movies page.

Finished the recap of Multiverse of Madness on the MCU page. I managed to go on enough tangents/rants to make it the second longest recap I've ever written, so.

I have started recapping the Star Trek "Kelvin Timeline" movies. Because I am a Trekkie. First one here, linked from the general movies page. (And yes, I am able to go back to the former formatting because I have a copy of Word now. Yay!)

Finally finished the recap of No Way Home. It's on the MCU page.

Someone in a Facebook group did a prompt about The Power of the Dog and since I was the only one to respond who even knew what that book/movie was, I pretty much had to write it. So here it is: In Dreams.

Chrissy and I recapped Benedict's second stint on SNL because clearly I have lost whatever remained of my sanity.

Brief recaps of "Iron Man 3", "Shang Chi" and "Hawkeye" are here.

May the Fourth be with you. I finally finished my MCU novella "Destiny", which is here in four parts, the first of which is linked from the Other Fic page.

Finishing both "Loki" (part 3) and "What If" (part 2). Both are on the MCU page 2.

Part 2 of "Loki", is now up on MCU page 2.

I decided to recap "What If..." because I've clearly lost all reason. Part one with episodes one through four is on MCU page 2.

And so begins my descent into madness. New recap of Loki on MCU page 2.

Finishing up WandaVision and doing a brief recaplet of Thor before going on to Loki. Both on the new MCU page 2.

And we've got the second third of WandaVision where it all starts making sense.

I'm officially at the point where I need a whole second page for MCU recaps, it is with the first part (of three) of the WandaVision recap.

Taking a break from the MCU proper to do Deadpool 2, which is still on the other movies page until further notice.

Doing quick summaries of "Far From Home", "Black Widow" and "Falcon and the Winter Soldier" to complete the MCU page. I'll be starting a new page when I go back to recapping for Phase 4.

New recap of Endgame on the MCU page.

New recap of Deadpool while I work on typing up the one for Endgame.

Before I get to the recap for Endgame, I need to make a few corrections...and adjust to the new HTML format for recapping.


Chrissy and I do another socially distanced recap (the other RDJ Holmes movie, naturally), this time joined by Emilio. It can be found on the movies page. The recaps of both movies have needed to be reformatted and are in HTML instead of plain text format now because one of the ways my life has become chaos lately has been losing access to the program I used to type these things on.

In an effort to distract ourselves from everything going on right now, Chrissy and I decided to do another socially distanced recap. This time of RDJ's Sherlock Holmes. It can be found on the movies page.

Chrissy and I do socially distanced recaps of Ant Man 2 and Captain Marvel. They can be found on the MCU page. I also added two PWP MCU stories to the Other Fic page.

Managed to squeeze in one more recap for the year. It's for "Iron Man" because who cares what order I do these things in anymore? It can be found on the MCU page.

Apparently life in general has been sucking the energy out of me lately and this recap didn't help. New recap of Infinity War on the MCU page.

New recap of Black Panther on the MCU page.

New recap of Thor: Ragnarok on the Marvel page, which was much less fun and more annoying than I had hoped it would be. If you loved the movie and thought it was the best in the series, you may want to sit this one out.

I am effectively no longer on Tumblr, for reasons that are probably obvious by now to anybody who went through The Purge that was basically Livejournal Exodus Redux. I rolled what Tumblr content I had over to WordPress, but I'm far more active on Dreamwidth. Additionally, I completed part one of "Of Dubious and Questionable Memory". Catch up here while I work on part two.

Was finally able to finish the recap for "Spider-Man: Homecoming". It's on the MCU page.

Managed to find time to do one recap, although it's Halloween themed and I didn't finish typing it until nearly a week later, so...only a partial success. It's on the stand alone movie page.

Everything should be back up and running now. I talked to my web designer about possibly changing the color scheme and (after nearly killing me) she agreed that we can consider that sometime in the future.

The recaps pages are up. Still working on the fan fiction pages.

As you can see, I revamped the entire site. My designer gave me some templates, graphics and a link to a free program I could download so I could edit pages without everything going sideways. All links on this page are now broken, but everything can still be found via the menu on the left.

Life has been really insane lately, so I've had no time to write much of anything, but I managed to finish a one-shot Marvel Cinematic Universe PWP with Loki and Doctor Strange. Beg For It.

I did a Twitter poll a couple months ago to decide which movie Chrissy and I should recap. Here is the winner: Only Lovers Left Alive.

Obviously I have had a major slow down in recapping. New recap of "Guardians of the Galaxy 2" on the Marvel Cinematic Universe page.

Well, that was faster than I thought. New recap of "Doctor Strange" on the Marvel Cinematic Universe page.

New recap of "Kong: Skull Island" on the recap page and I promise we will get back to the MCU shortly.

New recap of "Civil War" on the Marvel Cinematic Universe page.

New recap of "Age of Ultron" on the Marvel Cinematic Universe page.

Two completed Sherlock stories on the fanfiction page, which I have decided will probably be the last stories I start in this fandom.

Final recap of Sherlock: "The Final Problem", which is actually full of many problems. Also, a recap of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier".

Chrissy and I finished recapping the final two episodes ever of Torchwood. To counterbalance the bitter sweetness of four years of recapping coming to an end - and the depressing nature of the contents of the episodes themselves - we also did a recap of "Thor: The Dark World".

One new recap each of Torchwood and Sherlock. No, I'm not having much fun with this either, but I'm almost done.

And new recaps of Torchwood. Could probably have waited for those to be finished before I updated two days ago. Meh. Also, because "Torchwood" and "Sherlock" have both become depressing and/or annoying, I am now recapping movies in the Marvel Universe. Starting with "The Avengers". Because.

New recap of Sherlock for anyone who isn't pretending this past season didn't happen (personally, I prefer being more selective and just pretending that last episode and the whole Sister Edgelord thing didn't happen).

Two new recaps of Torchwood, and the last fun recap of Sherlock.

New finished Sherlock fic: Restoration.

One new recap of Torchwood, in which Chrissy and I attempt to reconcile with current events and find humor in an increasingly terrifying world.

One new recap of Saturday Night Live (hosted by Benedict Cumberbatch), edited from the original posts I did on Livejournal.

Two new recaps of Torchwood, beginning the final season and one new recap of Sherlock, completing season 3.

Redid the main page and fanfiction page because they really needed updating. Added a new Sherlock story: Devastated.

Three new recaps of Torchwood, which completes "Children of Earth" and one new recap of Sherlock, which may officially be the longest one yet. I have started posting a new - as yet unfinished - Sherlock story to my Livejournal and AO3 account.

Two new recaps of Torchwood, now on a new page and one new (very long) recap of Sherlock.

Three new recaps of Torchwood and Doctor Who (the ultimate crossover), and one of Sherlock.

New recaps of Torchwood, and Sherlock.

Look at me updating with regularity these days… Yay! New recaps of Torchwood, and Sherlock.

Two new recaps of Torchwood, season 2, and the finale of Sherlock, season one.

Several new episodes of Torchwood, season 2 recapped, as well as episode two of Sherlock.

I have begun recapping season 2 of Torchwood, as well as season 1 of Sherlock. Because obviously I just can’t resist Brits or hoyay.

I finished the last of my Lost WIPs. You can find them on the fiction page. Happy Lost Day!

Two new stories and three new recaps. First, an alternative to part of “Conception” can be found on the page with the rest of the story. It contains a rather graphic depiction of a man giving birth, so be forewarned. Also, I finally finished my flash-sideways verse “Lost” story “In Another Life”. I don’t have a dustjacket for it yet, so the link goes right to the text file. It’s slash (Jack/Sawyer) with an (eventual) NC-17 rating. For the recaps, I finished the three-part crossover of Torchwood and Doctor Who and jumped right into the middle of The Hobbit trilogy (because I basically slept through the first one anyway).

And now I’m recapping Doctor Who. Just the crossover episodes.

Why do I always get around to updating in March? All of my current stories are still in progress on Livejournal, so I just have some recaps for season 1 of Torchwood for now. Yes, I’m recapping Torchwood now. No, I don’t know what possessed me to do that.

I seem to have forgotten to update three “Lost” stories. Sorry about that. I’m still writing, don’t worry! Updates to new stories (still “Lost”), can be found on my Livejournal. As can the increasingly frequent rants that will explain why I haven’t been updating more frequently. Long story short: everyone I know, myself included, is a member of a union, a group that certain politicians in this country seem to have decided to declare war on. It’s hard to think about writing fanfic when people are writing nasty messages on your car and screaming obscenities at you because some idiot on Fox News told them you were somehow responsible for the recession.

Also, as you may have noticed, I changed my e-mail address. For a full explanation of why I am washing my hands of Yahoo, you can read my letter (which they ignored until they couldn’t ignore it anymore, at which point they proceeded to censor ME for) here. The Yahoo group is still up, however I will not be using it. I hope to have the Google group - or something similar - up and running once I get the kinks ironed out (I tried adding all the e-mails the Yahoo group was sending to…no dice).

Ah, yes, apparently I forgot to update this thing since my computer blew out and everything was a mess and I had half-finished stories everywhere and life has generally been a crazy mess. Ahem. Four new "Lost" stories, one of which is not quite finished, but you can find updates to it on my Livejournal. Plus two recaps of guest spots wherein the guests pretty much play themselves.

More changes in design (it's still a work in progress, apparently), including a brand new fanfiction page and acknowledgement of the designer as it was brought to my attention that I neglected to do so before. Sorry. Also, a column for Matthew Fox movies has been added to the recap page, including recaps of "We Are Marshall", "Vantage Point" and three episodes of "Haunted". And I put up a couple new stories (though if you've read my Livejournal it won't be new to you) - "Restraint II", sequel to gregoria44's original and "Safe Haven Alternate", a totally plotless piece of porn that I thought I was above writing now that I'm more mature. Clearly being around teenage boys is making me regress.

Happy New Year about two months late. I apologize for all the nonsensical/broken links. Hopefully they're all fixed now. Finished the recap of At World's End (Pirates 3). You can find it on the movie page, or you can go right to the separate Pirates of the Caribbean recap page. I also made dustjackets for the rest of the Detox series (Sobriety, Serenity and Safe Haven).

As you can see, I am redesigning my website. I took a class in design principles and I would like to apologize for the eyesore I have inflicted on the general population for the past few years. So far it's just the index page, the movie recap/review page and a new page of links. Everything else (including this page) is a work in progress. I finally finished the recap of Kingdom of Heaven, which you can find on the recap page. I also added part four of the Detox trilogy (I know, just go with it) and a new, improved dustjacket for Sex, Lies and Deception (made by myself). Next (hopefully) I'll finish a couple other stories and the recap of the third Pirates.

No Christmas decorations this year. Sorry.

It's May and I'm just now taking down my Christmas decorations. Sigh. I'm thinking I'll do minimal decorating next time (if any). I finished "Domesticity" and, because I felt like experimenting with PhotoShop, made my own dustjacket for it (I'm so proud of myself!). You can see both the jacket and the story here (also linked from the Fan Fiction page). I also did a recap for "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest", just in time for the third movie. You can find it here. I also made a few cosmetic changes and updated the "about the author" file (man, was it outdated!).

Yes, I am still here. :) As you can see, I decorated for the holidays again. All pages are decorated and I fixed all the broken or nonsensical links (I had no idea how bad it had gotten!) so feel free to poke around a bit. I also (finally!) finished one of my epic Vulder fics: "Sex, Lies and Deception." You can find it on the Fan fiction page. I'm still working on the other one (as well as about three other stories and five recaps), but here's a Christmas-themed chapter from it.

I've added a recap of "Monster-in-Law" and updated the VT page. There's a couple of my stories on there, so if you're registered at the SD-1 boards, you can get a preview of two new Vaughn/Mulder stories before I finish them and put them up on this site (if you're a member of my Yahoo group, you can get a preview of it there too). :)

I've finished the Extended version of "The Brit" as well as the third (and final...until I finish the epilogue) installment of the Detox Series: Serenity. You can find both on the updated fanfiction page.

The change in backdrop is because I'm feeling nostalgic. Good-bye, "Alias". You will be sorely missed. Sniffle.

I'll get around to taking down the Christmas decorations eventually, I swear! In the meantime, I have a recap of "Kitchen Confidential: F@#% the French" (I put it on its own page with different formatting because I made too many references that needed links) and a page of story recommendations by and for my VT Hos group on the SD1 message board. Enjoy!

Oh, and my bird died just before New Year's, so now the Snoopy and Woodstock graphic is in memory of both of my dearly departed pets. :(

As you can see, I've redecorated the site for the holidays. :) I also added a recap of Michael Vartan's appearances on "Friends" and "Ally McBeal" and some pictures to supplement the "Lost" recap. Again, please feel free to leave me comments on recaps/reviews, either by e-mail or guestbook. I'm starting to wonder if anyone is actually reading these things...Oh, and I made a couple changes to the guestbook, so take a look, sign, re-sign, whatever floats your boat.

As my Chrismas present to you, I have put together a bunch of ficlets and distributed them randomly throughout the site. Call it a treasure hunt. ;) There are 15 short ficlets - some stand alones, some parts of longer works in progress (including the next part of the "Intoxicated" series). Some have been posted to selective message boards or mailing groups and some are brand new. All but one (a kinky "Alias" PWP) are slash and they cover a total of six fandoms: "Alias", "X-Files", "Lost", "CSI", "Troy" and "LotR RPS". Abbreviated headers are on all of them, indicating fandom, pairing, ratings and whatnot. Any page of the site is fair game. Look for the green and red peppermints (??). Click on them to read the ficlets. Happy hunting! :)

(I'll give you this one as a freebie - my Christmas present to all of my readers - a brand new, holiday themed, sappy piece of slash PWP. :) Enjoy!)

Oh, and if anybody gives a rip about what's going on in my life, I have now become the proud caretaker of a partially-blind male house finch. Hence the bird theme on this page. This next graphic is for my Snoopy-loving uncle and in loving memory of my dog Suzie, who died just before this Thanksgiving.

Added new recaps of "Troy" and an episode of "Lost" and a review of "Kingdom of Heaven". The Recaps/Reviews section has been completely revamped and all my Robert Patrick/David Duchovny reviews have been transferred here from The Outlet. I've also implemented a new spoiler ratings system for recaps. Enjoy! And please feel free to leave me comments on recaps/reviews, either by e-mail or guestbook. I'm curious to know what people think of them as I've yet to hear anything. ;)

I still need a dustjacket for Sobriety. If there are any artists who would be interested in making one, e-mail me!
