I own the website Of elves and Men, and even though we began as a Tolkien fanfiction site, we are now multi-fandom and once a year, I host a Big Bang. This Big Bang has two options: a 20,000 word Big Bang or a 10,000 word Mini Bang.

Babylon 5 and related fandoms are part of our fandoms and I wanted to invite any of you writers out there to participate if you wish to do so.
You can find the info here: OR

If you have any questions, I’d be glad to answer them for you.

I was thinking of Sleeping in Light and I thought of an old Neil diamond song called "Done Too Soon" and it fit.

Done Too Soon

And each one there
Has one thing shared:
They have sweated beneath the same sun,
Looked up in wonder at the same moon,
And wept when it was all done
For being? Done too soon,
For being? Done too soon.
For being? Done.

~~ Neil Diamond
John Sheridan knew his time was up.

He found that knowing that it would come did not make it any easier. He had tried to finish it all, to make sure everything was done and plans were made but –

He found out that the twenty years were not enough. A lifetime or even five lifetimes would not be enough to do all he needed, wanted to do. Not enough to love Delenn, David as much as he wanted to.

He’d traded all those tomorrows a long time ago, knowing that this day would eventually come.

It was done too soon.

In the universe where Delenn and Susan Ivanova were married for political reasons just after the Earth-Minbari War, when Marcus Cole shows up on B5 with his flamboyant romantic soul, he latches on to...John Sheridan.

Thanks to [ profile] muccamukk for the story idea and [ profile] hearts_blood for the title.

If you haven't read muccamukk's excellent Susan/Delenn arranged marriage story, all you need to know here is that by Season 3 they've been married for over a dozen years—happily so for the last few—and Delenn is still full Minbari.

Set generally during Voices of Authority and Messages From Earth.

"I've been thinking." Marcus Cole's voice piped up from behind Susan's command chair a whole three minutes after she had started to believe he might actually shut up till the First Ones answered them.

Ten years with Delenn had taught her how horribly rude Minbari found sighing and rolling one's eyes, and the White Star was a Minbari ship, so Susan merely weighted her voice with longsuffering asperity. "Yes?"

"It must be very lonely at the top."

Susan's eyebrows crawled up her forehead. "You think the First Ones are lonely?"

Summary: Settling in on Minbar, Susan gets an unexpected visitor.
Also here on AO3

Susan was settling into life on Minbar quite well. Most of her time was spend in training with the rangers or in meetings with Delenn and other officials. When she had a few moments for herself, she loved just sitting in her quarters by the open window, relaxing, looking out into the still breathtaking view of the crystal city.

One afternoon, when she had just made some coffee, from beans she grew herself in the garden, and had put some cake on her little table by the window, she realized that she had forgotten the milk, or rather the just so acceptable alternative the Minbari provided, and went back to the kitchen to get it.

Taking the milk, she thought she'd heard the faintest sound from the living room, but coming back there, she saw nothing. She looked out of the window to be sure, but there was no trace of anyone or anything.

Except that, when she turned back to her chair, shrugging the odd occurrence off, half of her cake was gone and some of the coffee was clearly spilled.

Frowning, she looked out of the window again, this time thoroughly checking the surrounding areas. But again she saw nothing.

Still wondering, she sat down to drink her coffee and eat what was left of the cake.

I've been messing around with word art lately, so I thought I'd try one of my favorite quotes from the series. This has been my mantra for the past couple of years, tbh.

Author’s Note: For Babylon 5 Love Month
Summary: In the dead of night, Joh has questions



In the dead of night, all alone in his quarters, John Sheridan looked in the mirror at his deeply shadowed reflection. He had followed her into this whole thing, pretending that it was his idea, pretending he understood everything. But what he’d seen and done today, they made him wonder what the hell he was missing in the story.

He’d been sent here by Clark because Clark wanted to annoy the Minbari and also by the military back home, who’d represented a group of military and senate members who didn’t trust Clark or anything about him.

He’d quickly figured out a lot of things, or had he? Had she told him what he knew? Was she telling the truth? All of it or part? And Kosh, what part did he have in all of it? Had Kosh actually really ever told him anything at all?

He knew he was going a bit off the deep end but, damn it, he’d gone ahead in time, seen Londo as an old and worn out emperor of Centauri Prime, heard Delenn mention their son, for God’s sake!

“Lights.” The room became light. He went over to the bar and started to pour himself a drink but decided on water instead. He moved to the sofa and sat down, taking a sip of his water.

What did he actually know?

He thought of Delenn, of her smile, of the way she made him feel something he had never felt, not even with Anna. He thought of her voice, the way she said his name. And he knew that he was with her, always, through whatever came.

He set his glass down and went to bed. Just before he drifted into sleep, he thought about what she’d said and what it meant.

“Our son…”

There is a trend on tumblr to put text posts or twitter posts on fitting fandom pictures, which can be quite hilarious. I have a thing for inside jokes, and these are great for that, so I decided to make some of them myself. In this case, I've taken posts from wikilifeadvice, which is a blog that takes quotes from wiki-how and posts them without context, and put them on Babylon 5 screencaps. Some (well, most) of these are tongue in cheek, all of them are meant to be humorous. Basically, life advice, B5 style.

Found this on the internet and couldn't resist.

Today I offer up a piece of fic that will, alas, probably never be as finished as I wanted it to be. Back in 2003 (according to the datestamp on this particular file) I started writing a series about the new class of Rangers, the one that would include all the Alliance races. This particular bit is from the point of view of Corus, a scion of a minor Centauri house who's decided that the opportunities back home aren't nearly as exciting as the ones opening up on Minbar. I hope you like it!

Summary: Jason understands.


Jason’s Gift

Jason Ironheart had seen the ‘sleeper’ inside Talia’s mind, had known exactly what it was. But he’d made a choice. He left it alone. He chose instead to give her a gift, a small gift that let her know he still loved her without letting the other know he saw it.

When he became – what he became, none of those things mattered anymore and at the same time, he understood how much they did matter.

As a being of pure light, he knew how much a touch meant, a kind word to a single being. He hoped she remembered him.

I am tiring of the B5 [age at Facebook... it is bogged down with rules and arguments over trivial posts and serious posts... and a snobbery about the trivial that makes me cringe. So here is a new one...
