The Interview (a ficlet)

Hello everyone!

I know I've been promising something for months, but it's been difficult to feel inspired to write much of anything. Well tonight, I was inspired.

And so I present:

The Interview: A Ficlet

Warnings: Completely AU involving the "fictional" 5th Beatle. Takes place later on this year, so I'm not certain what his set list would be.

As always, any and all comments are most appreciated!

Still alive friends, and terrible apologies going being MIA over the past few months.

I know I say this everytime, but do expect something soon.

Hope that you're all well.

This song is inspiring me to continue. Expect something very soon:

Hello everyone!

I know I promised more gap-fillers a while ago, but life has been very hectic! Please be assured that more on their way -- it just may be a little while longer!


Thanks for continuing to keep up with the story.

TEASER for The Interview: Gap Filler # 10

Since it's been about a month since posting the last gap filler, I decided that I should at least post a "teaser" of what's to come. I'm sure you've all come to expect the jumble of happy/sad/silly fillers.

Like a few I've posted, it will be a multi-era piece.

Hello, everyone!

For those of you following the "The Interview" gap fillers, I wanted to let you all know that I have not forgotten them! I have a few more planned, but have not found the time to write them.

Be on the look-out in the next few weeks!

The Interview: Gap Filler # 9

Title: The Interview: Gap Filler # 9


Another one of those Gap Fillers which I believed was necessary to write about. I did my best to not make it too dramatic (yes, it's one of those, but hopefully that won't keep you from reading!), but only you can be the judge of that. :-)


As always, comments are most appreciated!

This interaction was another one of those I somehow felt was only fitting to write. Whether I was successful or not, only you can be the judge. :-)

The Interview: Mini-Gap Filler # 7.5 :: Birthdays

Title: The Interview: Mini-Gap Filler # 7.5 :: Birthdays


I wouldn't get my hopes up about this one, lol. It'll undoubtedly be quite short, but seeing as it's Paul's birthday today, and you all know that Liz would never forget her old woman (her words, not mine) of a "brother"'s birthday, something needed to be written for the occassion.

A proper Gap Filler shall be posted in the next few days, but in the meantime, here's one to mark Paul's 67th birthday!

The Interview: Gap Filler # 7

Title: The Inteview: Gap Filler # 7


This is the second one I've posted in twenty-four hours. Another scene I'd felt a curiosity about, and very much in line with Gap Filler # 1. This is a bit of silliness, more than anything. :-)


The next update shall come in a few days. As always, comments are most appreciated!

The Interview: Gap Filler # 6

Title: The Interview: Gap Filler # 6


This one was another one of those that I thought should be written.

I think it's important to attempt to present as balanced a picture of a person as possible, whether it be a fictional character or not; warts and all. Hopefull you'll agree.


As always, comments are most appreciated!

The Interview: Gap Filler # 5

Title: The Interview: Gap Filler # 5


Yes, here's yet another one, but in my defense, this one was begging to be written, and after still feeling a bit of guilt for the tear-fest that was # 3, I decided to post another one ASAP.

It'll be a few days before another one is posted, but in the meantime, hopefully you'll find this one fitting. And just to be safe, it's rated R.

The good news is that this one isn't not-so-happy like the past two Gap Fillers. So no tissue will be needed! At least, I hope not! :-)

The Interview: Gap Filler # 3


I promise that I won't dedicate myself solely to posting non-cutesy/amusing fillers, but as with the previous one, it seemed like this was also something that should be written about. Hopefully you'll agree.

The Interview: Gap Filler # 2

Title: The Interview: Gap Filler #2


I don't really know what to think/say about this one really. If the first one was the cutesy/sweet one, this one isn't. But it felt right to address it, because at least in this AU, Liz was around for almost everything...good and bad, happy and not-so-much.


As always, all comments are appreciated.

The Interview: Gap Filler # 1

Title: The Interview: Gap Filler #1


As promised, here's the first of the few gap fillers I shall be posting. This was written very quickly, while still fresh in my mind. Just as a warning, this is rather silly and even sweet, but oh well.

As an aside, I highly doubt the song used here was performed, but for the sake of this, it was! :-)

Hello, everyone!


For those of you who kept up with "The Interview", thank you so much for your comments and support! I am so glad that you liked it. I wanted to let you all know that I'll possibly be posting some gap fillers over the next few weeks. There were a lot of events that were briefly touched on that I'd like to expand on -- if only because I found the character of "Liz" quite a lot of fun to write, and liked writing about her take on things. Plus there were a few relationships that weren't expanded upon enough and I'd like to do that as well.

So be on the lookout in the next few weeks!

The Interview: Finale --- Part 5 (1)

Title: The Interview
Rating: PG-13, bordering on R for language and themes.
Pairing: Liz/George

Summary: The conclusion of the elusive fifth Beatle's interview.


Disclaimer: I do not own The Beatles and this is about as AU as you can get. I have taken, many, many liberties, namely which that this involves a fictional "fifth" Beatle (who happens to be a female), so history (and certain dates) will very obviously be fudged with. This was a dream that I had for a week -- this wrote itself.

Note: This was too large to post in one entry, so it's been separated into two. The link to the second section of Part 5 is placed at the bottom.

As always, thank you so much to those of you who read and commented during my writing of this. Thank you for giving this a chance. I appreciate that so much.

final part postponed

Hello everyone!

I feel terrible for having to do this, but life continues to be incredibly hectic and once again I feel that need to postpone the update the last part of "The Interview". To give myself ample time to finish it, I'll say that it will be posted within two-three weeks.

Apologies to those of you who've followed the story since I posted the first updated almost two months ago. Your continued enthusiasm is most appreciated. I promise you that I will do my best to make the last part as good as I possibly can.

next 'The Interview' update

I wanted to let those of you keeping up with "The Interview" know that I will have to postpone the next update for a week or so -- I plan to have the very last part up by next Friday (1 May) or Saturday (2 May).

Real life is quite hectic and if I attempt to produce anything by this Friday it will not be a fitting end to my little series.



Thank you very much to those of you who've read and commented -- and liked it! I greatly appreciate the kind feedback. :-)

In case you missed it, here is Part 4 which was posted a week or so ago.

a few youtube videos to accompany THE INTERVIEW

If you're interested, these tracks have been on constant repeat during my writing of The Interview. Maybe it'll give you an idea of what I was aiming for when it came to Liz, on a musical basis anyhow:
