Summary: Ivanova reflects.


The Cost

“We were fooled by them.”

Susan Ivanova, now retired from the Rangers, poured herself a cup of coffee.

“They convinced us all that they were right and the Shadows were wrong. Many good people died because they’d rather let us fight instead of doing it themselves.”

She stared at a spot on the wall for a moment.

“We lost so much, so many good people. I lost everything. But that was my fault. Not the Vorlons nor the Shadows. I was afraid. I am still shamed by his sacrifice. Do you think you can bring him back someday, Stephen?”

Summary: Stephen wakes confused.


Worse than Hell Itself.

Stephen woke to a horrible noise. For a moment he thought he’d passed out in Down Below. Then he remembered he’d given up stims, had finally gotten himself clean and sober.

What the hell was that horrid sound?

He listened more carefully as he took stock of where he was. He was in a lumpy bed somewhere with artificial light. Mars Dome. He was in some seedy motel on Mars.

I am the very model of a modern Major-General,
I’ve information animal, vegetable and mineral…

It was worse than drugs. Or drunkenness. Or even hell itself.

Marcus was singing again.

Fair warning, there is no way for me to avoid being real political with my Babylon 5 love right now. The next episode in my full re-watch (as opposed to, you know, all the individual episodes I watch randomly as the whim passes) is "The Long, Twilight Struggle," but I haven't been able to muster up the emotional energy to watch it yet. So I made a tribute to one of my very favorite speeches which comes from that episode, and to all the participatory democracy going on around the world right now.

Title: Freedom Fighter
Fandom: Babylon 5
Disclaimer: I do not own nor do I profit from these characters.
Rating: PG
Author: Alex (alex_cat_45@yahoo.com)
Character: Vir Cotto
Note: For Babylon 5 Love Month
Summary: Vir is a freedom fighter.


Freedom Fighter

Vir had spent most of his time in Minbar with the religious caste, all of it, in fact. He really liked them. They were all somewhat like Lennier in demeanor and their teachings made him feel like nothing at home ever had. He felt a sense of belonging. He felt empowered to do something.

So he did. He forged hundreds, maybe thousands of travel papers for Narn refugees. Londo would kill him if he found out. The emperor would have his head, maybe even put it in the room where it was whispered he kept the heads of his enemies and talked to them.

Vir swallowed hard. He liked his head right where it was.

He’d been called back to Babylon 5 after a short trip to the Centauri homeworld.

Londo presented him with a fiancé and a gorgeous one at that. He wondered what it had cost his family to get such a bride as Lyndisty. He soon found out that a room of angry Narns was preferable to his bloodthirsty little sweetheart. He was glad he found out about her before she found out all about him.

“I blame those touchy feely Minbari.” Londo looked so disappointed in him. As much as he loved Londo, he knew he’d do it all over again if he got a chance. Not only had he learned about the Minbari. He had read quite a bit about humans and Earth History. That was why he’d chosen the name, Abrahamo Lincolni.

It sounded Centauri but anyone who knew Earth history would associate him with a great man who freed a whole racer of enslaved people on Earth. And if they thought Vir had done even a tiny fraction of what Lincoln had done, well, he could live with that.

I wanted to do something fun for this year, so I thought I'd do some descriptions of episodes as I remember them (though I had to look some up, it's been a while since I've watched the show). So here you go, description of every Babylon 5 episode (plus The Gathering minus other movies) in exactly ten words (not counting numbers and abbreviations), without episode title. See if you can guess which episode it is. :D

All episodes are in a random order, the numbers are just to talk about them better, like, "I think number 39 is x/y episode", "I know all except number 5" etc.

Under a cut cause there's lots of episodes )

Title: Expendable

Disclaimer: I do not own nor do I profit from these characters.
Rating: PG
Author: Alex (alex_cat_45@yahoo.com)
Type: 100 word Drabble
Note: For the 2017 Babylon 5 Love month
Summary: Marcus lays dying…



He knew she would never love him, had known from the start, but Marcus could not stop himself from loving her. She was brave and strong. Braver and stronger than he would ever be. Like his brother.

That was why he did it, he told himself. The galaxy needed Ivanova much more than it needed him. He was a bitter soul who had lost everything; he was expendable. His brother had not been, but he’d not been able to save him.

Susan he could save.

Soon he could finally rest and find out if the end really was the end…

Jerry Doyle apparently died in his Las Vegas home yesterday of unknown causes. Foul play is not suspected and an autopsy is being done. Mr. Doyles was 60.

I am speechless. MY husband turned 60 yesterday.

Here is a little best Garibaldi from YouTube:

Here is a post from JMS:
Jul 28, 2016

When it came to politics, Jerry Doyle and I disagreed on, well, pretty much everything. Politically, Jerry was just to the right of Attila the Hun. There is a line in Babylon 5 where his character, Michael Garibaldi, suggests that the way to deal with crime is to go from electric chairs to electric bleachers. That line is quintessential Jerry Doyle. I say this with confidence because I overheard him saying it at lunch then stole it for the show.
Despite our differences, when Jerry ran for congress as a Republican not long after Babylon 5 ended, I donated to his campaign. Not because I agreed with him, but because I respected him; because there was one area in which we agreed: the vital intersection between the arts of acting and storytelling. In that respect, Jerry was a consummate professional. Regardless of whatever was going on in his life, whether it was marital issues, a broken arm, forced couch-surfing with Bruce and Andreas or other problems, he never once pulled a prima donna on us; he showed up every day on time, knew his lines, and insisted that the guest cast live up to the standards of the main cast, to the point of roughing up one guest star who showed up not knowing his lines. Trust me when I say that after Jerry got done with him, every day he showed up, he knew his lines. And then some.
He was funny, and dangerous, and loyal, and a prankster, and a pain in the ass; he was gentle and cynical and hardened and insightful and sometimes as dense as a picket fence...and his passing is a profound loss to everyone who knew him, especially those of us who fought beside him in the trenches of Babylon 5. It is another loss in a string of losses that I cannot understand. Of the main cast, we have lost Richard Biggs, Michael O'Hare, Andreas Katsulas, Jeff Conaway, and now Jerry Doyle, and I'm goddamned tired of it.
So dear sweet universe, if you are paying attention in the vastness of interstellar space, take a moment from plotting the trajectory of comets and designing new DNA in farflung cosmos, and spare a thought for those who you have plucked so untimely from our ranks...and knock it off for a while.
Because this isn't fair.
And Jerry Doyle would be the first person to tell you that. Right before he put a fist in your face. Which is what I imagine he's doing right now, on the other side of the veil.

God speed, Mr. Garibaldi!

I decided the last day was a free-for-all without ever actually checking the calendar, so made up a wee l'il graphics post.  Thanks to everyone who put up cool stuff this year!  I'm still going back and checking out the entries this year.  It's so great to be a part of a fandom this persistent.

I was going to write a story for today that I've been having in my head for a long time, but then both my tummy and my inspiration decided otherwise (meaning I'm having a really bad tummy and the few minutes I did spend writing I wrote a different fic pffffft :P), so I wondered if I could make graphics for my favourite quotes or just list them but looking for them already proved too straining, so I thought I just won't do anything but then I randomly remembered that back at the height of my B5 obsession (nearly ten years ago :O) I made quizzes and I can share them here!

I only made three, all episode quizzes from the fourth season. The site itself has a lot of quizzes for B5 and I spent quite a lot of time there at some point, trying to solve them all! :D Also, yes, I know my username there is spelled completely wrong, I have no idea how that happened, but it looks so weird now. Bonus points for anyone who knows where from B5 that name originated - I took it at that time and it just stayed. :P
