Default April 9

I didn't really have time to write this, but I feel that I've earned an update. You wouldn't believe the couple of weeks I've had. It's one hit after another until you just wish Flanders was dead.

So here's a little something seasonal -- at least it was supposed to be little. It sorta grew. Until there were 14 segments. Including a really big one. Look, the point is, here's Scenes From the Easter Egg Hunt at FiveMinute.net.

(Note: There is actually not an Easter egg in this one, so don't bother looking. I couldn't think of anything. Maybe next time.)

Naturally, the Zelda one is the longest. *znerk*

That was awesome, Zeke.

Quote:
(T'Pol kicks Trip, sending the eggs flying. While he's getting his bearings, she collects all fifty eggs into a pile and vaporizes it with a phase pistol.)
Tucker: What the hell?
T'Pol: Deep down, you knew how this would go.
I always knew I liked T'Pol.

Quote:
Chekov: A giant Russian Orthodox Easter egg!
Heh.

And Smallville suddenly got a lot more interesting.

And Zelda was just plain awesome. Only one quote not from LoZ 1, but somehow I suspected "I am error" might be showing up.

I loved the Enterprise one, too. Nice job throughout.

I almost wonder why you didn't sneak a zombie in there...

Crichton: Wow! There are eggs everywhere in here! Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head!
The Lion King isn't used NEARLY enough as joke fodder around here...

Old Man: Master using it and you can have this.
Link: How can I master using it if I don't have it?
Old Man: It's a secret to everybody.
I have to admit that Zelda is quickly reaching the point where there's a quote for everything, just like The Princess Bride and Star Trek.

Zelda: A chocolate egg! That's so sweet!
Link: Well excuuuuuse me, princ-- wait, you liked it. Never mind.
Oh, another viewer of the old Zelda cartoon. There's a context shift.

DISCLAIMER: This story steps on the lawns of just about everybody. Know what? I'm not sorry. I'd do it again.
If only I was that confident. Good show.

That was pure Cadbury (tm) awesome.

I particularly liked the one about the Easter Egg.

April 11

Oops! I just realized one of the scenes I wrote is missing. I've added it now -- it's the second last on the page. (The scenes are only loosely ordered, by the way.)

On a related note, Katy Jane pointed out to me that most of the Tenth Doctor fivers were missing. This was an accidental result of my thorough spring cleaning of the site a while back. I've restored them now -- let me know if anything else is AWOL. [EDIT: Katy Jane's pointed out that the other fivers from the anniversary event are missing. I'll restore them when I get home.]

Ironically, that was the wrong disclaimer. I have a different one I use for Easter egg-type things. The one you quoted is originally from "The Disbanding 2." (Writing this was a similar experience.)

Have you noticed the disclaimer I use for Zelda fivers, by the way?

Well, "noticed" and "remembered" are really two different things.

Nice, Zeke. Topical, and full of angst.

An alternate Doctor Who scene is called for before Valium's head explodes. Again, I mean.

Quote:
Doctor: Where did you get all those?
Leela: I took part in a strange ritual - at first I thought it was to teach children vital hunting skills, but all they were looking for is these shiny egg things. A pretty poor sort of prey really; and they weren't even armed!
Doctor: Leela, it's not that sort of hunt.
Leela: But what other sort is there? At least I was able to show them how to make a simple garotte and what things are suitable for clubbing with.
Doctor: ...Oh dear.

I will now repeat my reaction to the actual one:

Ahem.

I did have an idea of writing a scene where the Doctor and some other companion go hunting across time and space for pieces of an egg made of perspex or something, but then dismissed it as being simply too silly.

I know from harsh experience that day-to-day, nuts and bolts stuff should really be send via e-mail, or else The Big Z will smite you.
