This is TVLit 101 (please check your schedules to make sure you're in the right place), and I'm your host, "Professor" Witherspoon. I'm reluctant to use the word "instructor" because this class is not about learning, but about experiencing, exploring, and enjoying the wonderful world of fan fiction. I have taken the liberty of authoring the texts for this course (see Recommended Reading for other fine examples of TV-based literature), and while none of the texts are required reading, I hope you will take time to sample the offerings at your leisure. If you have any questions or wish to discuss a certain text, you may contact me at any point. The following syllabus will be updated at regular intervals. Enjoy!
*Disclaimer: All characters, locales, and assorted inventions that you've seen on these various shows belong to the writers, producers, networks, production companies, etc. of each individual show. The only parts that belong to me are occasional story plots and a few side characters.
*All texts are rated TV14: Violence and Language. Some are TVG (or even milder) but the course as a whole is for those mature in television viewing.
Due to longer stories crying to be written, I'm not going to posting as often as I have been. Wanna know when I update?

This is a list of every fanfic I've ever written in order of posting dates. This is helpful if you're just surveying the course. If you're trying to follow a particular fandom or series, see below.
Texts created for TVLit 101currently involve the following shows: Highlander: The Series, La Femme Nikita, and The Sentinel, plus Crossovers with Early Edition; Friday, The 13th: The Series; Highlander: The Series; Homicide: Life On The Streets; Kung Fu: The Legend Continues; La Femme Nikita; Millennium; and the X-Files. Check this section to find the stories indexed by their fandom.
I have a number of series, some which have to be read in order and others which are merely linked by theme or design.
The internet has become the Library of Congress of fan fiction (for international visitors, the U.S. Library of Congress has a copy of just about everything ever printed). My list is small, but it should get you headed in the right direction on the information superhighway.
This message board is open to anyone wanting to discuss one of the TVLit 101 texts, someone's else's texts, one of the fandoms, television in general, the world as a whole, etc. All I ask is that you keep it clean; this is NOT and NC-17 site. Do NOT make me have to get out my eraser! :-) Have fun with it. It's the perfect way to pass notes in class.
Of course, you can always contact me privately, D.L. Witherspoon(email@example.com). I used to promise I'd write everyone back, but that just led to guilt upon guilt upon guilt when I failed to do so. So, this time I will merely assure each and everyone of you that if you write to me, I will read your letter, cherish it if it's praise, consider it if it's a suggestion, ponder it if it's useful criticism, or toss it if it's a flame.
P.S. Please feed the writer. It's her ego that keeps her at the keyboard. :-)
I always missed having recess after I left elementary school, and no, gym was not a suitable replacement. :-) Below are links to a couple of trivia games which change on a weekly basis. Tell me if you like them, or it they are a total waste. Also, if you have some ideas about other "fun" items, pass them on. WARNING: You must have JAVA up and running to play these!
