"Karl's Fukin' Vlog"
Tune in to watch Karl Borsok as he vlogs about the events before, during, and after Garcia Flynn convinced him to help him travel through time to destroy Rittenhouse.
I wanted to steer clear of the whole holiday fic thing this year, so I decided to tap into my inner Karl.
I've had this fic idea floating around in my head for a few years now, and I was waiting to have fun writing it until I felt I had a better grasp on how I write Karl as a character.
The idea is kinda-sorta inspired/influenced by Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog (2008), only there probably won't be a lot of singing in this.
I'm breaking out of my Garcy-centric comfort zone to write this, which I think will be fun because it will explore Karl's thoughts on his boss's feelings for Lucy, and how that develops over time.
Like with my Bunker Shenanigan's Presents: story, this fic is one that I'll update as I'm inspired to write new chapters. I hope you enjoy Karl's vlog!
Also... this is an interactive fic. I you have any questions for Karl, post them in your comments on AO3, and he might just answer your question in an upcoming chapter/vlog :D
I found some old fanart, and have some new 1080p desktop wallpapers to share with you today, too. First up, two manips: Flemma and Garcy <--- which I meant to upload back during the Summer of Garcy. I made it for the wallpapers I did for that (non)event, and then totally forgot about it over the summer. Oops. It's not my best manip, but I think it's fun/funny, so here it is.
And six new 1080p desktop wallpapers: two Garcy manips - one in which I removed wyat and Benedict Arnold, and the top of Rufus's head, so that Garcia and Lucy are traveling alone in that episode. The other is a manip for Garcy from the shower scene in the Pilot episode of Extant. The last four are different color styles from a new manip that I made yesterday from the season 2/Shitmas promotional stills.

Chapter 25: "The Morning After"
In the aftermath of the night before, Garcia and Lucy discuss the last week, and the events that nearly led to the end of their relationship. Meanwhile, Wyatt is running late for a Rittenhouse meeting, and Denise pays Emma a visit.
I began writing this chapter one year ago. I first wrote all the Garcy scenes, and then began working on the non-Garcy scenes. I had just begun writing the Emma Whitmore scenes last January, a day or two before the passing of Annie Wersching (the actress who portrayed Emma). I don't do well with death, and I had been so upset about Annie's passing that I just could not write for Emma. This lasted for months.
Anyone who knows me, knows that I love Emma Whitmore, and never saw her as an "evil" character (as I've seen others refer to her as. She's not "black & white" to me, she's a "grey area" character. And my intention with her scenes in this chapter is to highlight her character in a "what could've been" if Timeless had more time to fully develop her.
Back when I was on Twitter, I had posted some of my thoughts about Emma, and Annie had given my comments ♥s. I like to believe that actors know their characters better than anyone else, so her liking my comments was a sort of validation that the way I saw her character, had been the way she saw her character.
For that reason, when I sat down and wrote the Emma scenes in chapter 25, I wanted to pour my heart into her character, and humanize her. To perhaps make some readers see her as someone more than just "evil." I hope not to change how you feel for her character, but to at least allow you to see her in a different light.
With regard to my Summer of Garcy fic, Bodyguard... I had every intention to finish that story in September, but with real life stirring things up every two weeks, I have not had time to give my full attention to finishing the story. I'm actually at a place where I need to reread the entire fic to remember what has happened (LOL + *face palm*). I will try to work on it now that TRLT chapter 25 is up on AO3, and will make it my priority fic until it is completed. After that, my goal is to finish TRLT sometime before the end of 2024.
I have some ideas for some Garcy Holiday themed fanworks for December, but I'm not making any guarantees that any of them will come to fruition - keep an eye on this site, my Tumblr page, and my Instagram to be updated should I get inspired by the holiday season.
Until then, I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday season ♥
Happy My Birthday Month!
For those of you waiting for the final chapters of Bodyguard, and the next chapter of The Road Less Traveled, my goal is to finish Bodyguard before January, and as soon as I get edits back on chapter 25 of TRLT, I'll post that to AO3, and then my goal is to finish TRLT before the end of 2024. Keep your fingers crossed.
A few years ago I created a manipulation from one of my favourite episodic stills from Timeless 206 The King of the Delta Blues (by squishing Garcia and Lucy closer together). Today, I remade the manip because the original wasn't exactly the best quality (I may have made it from a non-HQ version of the still). Now, I have the manip in better quality, and with a brand new color grading ♥ I made it into a 1080p desktop wallpaper, and a phone wallpaper (1080x2220p).
Also, don't forget to check out the site updates at Goran Višnjić Archive and The Timeless Fansite ♥
Happy Halloween! I made a new Garcy Halloween-y manip for the occastion, and made it into a 1080p desktop wallpaper, in four different color types ♥
Two new Garcy manips ♥
I still don't know when the next chapters of The Road Less Traveled and Bodyguard will be on AO3. I apologize for the wait. September was crazy. October got busier than expected. November, December, and January are looking to be super busy for me as well. I'll try to get back to writing during those months, but I'm also not making any promises. Again, I'm so sorry for making you wait.
Happy 7th anniversary to the Timeless series premiere! Seven years ago, I sat down in front of the TV, knowing that I'd enjoy Timeless, but not knowing just how much the series would mean to me in the years to come. It's not a perfect series. It has its faults. But it is still my favourite TV series of all time. It incorporated so many story themes that I love: time travel, history, and adventure. Along with those three things, it also brought me my favourite character of all time in Garcia Flynn, and my favourite fictional relationship of all time in the Garcia and Lucy relationship. I've seen Timeless (the OG26) at least 100 times by now, and can usually fit in an entire OG26 series rewatch at least once a month <--- I watched it much more than that per month way back in 2018, 2019, and it helped me cope with so much bullshit during 2020. My rewatches have slowed down this year, and one day I will get it down to one rewatch a year, but I have no idea when that will happen. Anyway, October is Timeless Month for me, and I will begin my "an episode a day" rewatch tonight with the episode that sparked the Garcy relationship: Pilot ♥
And stay tuned for the conclusion to the Bodyguard. I had a hectic September, and some of my October will be busy as well, but I plan on finishing that story this month, so that I can 100% focus on getting The Road Less Traveled (TRLT) finished sometime next year.

Chapter 24: "Absolution"
With Wyatt surveilling outside Maria's home, Lucy makes a decision that will impact her life, her unborn daughter's life, and the life of Garcia forever.
My apologies for 1) how long it took to get this chapter up on AO3 after leaving you all with that chapter 23 cliffhanger waaaaaay back in January. I hope that kind of delay doesn't happen again, but I can't make guarantees, 2) for how loooooong this chapter is (it's the longest chapter of TRLT <--- and I promise from here on, the rest of the chapters will be much shorter than this one) - it took me months to write it (and edit it, and cut it down), and every time I've read it, it's taken me at most 3 hours to get through (granted, I end up editing every time that I've reread it), and 3) I hope chapter 24's cliffhanger is less stressful for you.
Chapter 25 is with my editor, but no word on when it might be ready for me to put finishing touches on so it's ready to get up on AO3. I want to say hopefully it'll be up in August, but back in January, I was hoping to get chapter 24 up in February, so... again: fingers crossed.
Garcia Flynn is one of the richest men in the world whose family has received credible death threats, and Lucy Preston has been hired by his father to keep him protected. Obviously, the two of them absolutely hate each other, and of course Garcia is dating the 'Wicked Witch of the West,' so obviously... they're going to fall in love (or hate), right?
This is a BINGO! for the following Summer of Garcy 2023 BINGO! card prompts, which includes:
- bodyguard AU
- skinny dipping
- spin the bottle
- road trip
- pool party
This is my first 100% AU Garcy fic ever. I feel very much out of my comfort zone while writing this, and I'm 'pants-ing' it every step of the way. This is also the first fic I've started to post chapters of which I have no clue how the story is going to end (but it will, I don't post fics unless I 100000000% intend on finishing them).
I wrote this listening to the John Wick soundtracks/scores - specifically from the first John Wick movie: The Red Circle (Castle Vania), and Think (Kaleida) <--- if you would like to listen to those tracks (quietly) as you read.
