Hello, hello, hello!

Great news! I've finally finished the new story for Destiny's Child! I hope to never go so long without posting a story again! I'm starting to get back into my 'writing swing', and even though RW is still making demands of my time, I'm getting my BIC time for writing. (BIC...butt in chair...something I picked up from one of my favorite authors, Jim Butcher!)

A HUGE "Thank You!" to the GREATEST READERS IN THE WORLD for keeping my little site active, and for letting me know that you still enjoy the stories therein! I hope to keep adding to them...and as I said, hopefully in a more timely manner!

I hope you enjoy My Friend, Danny

Hello, hello, hello!

Well, it seems I'm doing a 'once a year' update. Okay, just the last update and this update...but still... 

I hope this update finds all of my AMAZING READERS healthy and happy. Life has been good to Hubby and I, and although I thought retirement would mean more time to sit and write, I'm not going to complain! 

I do have good news for you, well, I think it's good news. (Your mileage may vary!) I am working on a new story, and I have hope that I can get it up...soon. Okay, hopefully right after the first of the year. I have to be realistic here! As always, those on the mailing list will be alerted when the story is posted.

As always, thanks to the GREATEST READERS IN THE WORLD!

Have a Spooky Halloween, a Blessed Thanksgiving, and a very Merry Christmas!




November 14, 2022

Hello, hello, hello!

Hey, I made it almost a year to the day without updating. No, that's not a good thing, I suppose. RW has a horrible way of interfering with what I want to do! I just wanted to let everyone know that, yes, the site is still active; yes, I'm working on a new story for Destiny's Child, and no, I don't know when I'll have it ready. I'd like to say 'soon', but will instead say that it will probably be after the first of the new year. 

Also, I'd like to make certain that all of my faithful readers know about the Admin Notes page. I've put a date on it, so that you'll know when it's been updated. ANY time the site goes down, Admin will make certain it comes back up as soon as humanly possible. (Living in the Great Northwest guarantees lovely wind storms in the winter!) If the site goes down, keep checking; it will come back up. When it does, be certain to check out the Admin notes. They're always fun to read!

As always, thanks to the GREATEST READERS IN THE WORLD for keeping The Chosen One an active fan fiction site! You're all awesome!




November 18, 2021

Hello, hello, hello! 

Hold on to your hats, folks, two updates in the same year! I's amazing, right!

This little note is to remind the GREATEST READERS IN THE WORLD of the "Admin Notes" page. If the site goes down (and nine times out of ten it's because of a power outage...the tenth time is because of cats sleeping where they shouldn't!) there will be a message from Admin as soon as the site is back up. I encourage you to read these notes, because Admin has a wonderful sense of humor. He's as funny as he is savvy when it comes to tech. Okay, maybe his tech skills are a bit stronger...

Anyway, go read the notes and have a giggle!

If I could thank all of you personally for your support, I'd do so! There are readers who have been with me since February of 2016, when the site made its first appearance. I figure most of  you know the stories better than I do by now! You'll never know how much that means to me. You'll never know how seeing your URL in the stats program brings a smile to my face, even if I don't know you by name. You'll never know how many times your presence on the site kept me writing, when I felt like giving up. Given that we're just a few days from Thanksgiving, let me take this opportunity to say "THANK YOU! YOU ARE THE GREATEST READER(S) IN THE WORLD!"

While I'm at it, I want to wish each and every one of you a happy, healthy, wonderful Holiday Season! 




March 25, 2021

Hello, hello, hello!

Will wonders ever cease? I hope not! And I have good news for all of the amazing people who frequent this site (still!), the GREATEST READERS IN THE WORLD! Finally, I have a new story ready, and it's been posted! I hope you enjoy it...this is a humorous little SG-1 story. 

Training With SG-1 is now available!

And remember, feedback is soul food for online authors!

Thanks for all of your continued'll never know how much I appreciate it!




March 9, 2021

Hello, hello, hello!

Well, RW has certainly not played fairly. We're all healthy and happy, just busier than expected. (Getting ready for Hubby to retire...WOOT!) So there are things that we wanted to accomplish before retirement, so we can enjoy retirement!

Okay, enough of the excuses. I've finished the next story, and am in the process of doing a beta reading and having my beta reader do her amazing job of finding all of my mistakes. As soon as the story is completely 'polished', I'll get it posted. With luck, that should be somewhere near the end of March. 

Thank you to the GREATEST READERS IN THE WORLD for your continued support, and for your patience!


November 17, 2020

Hello, hello, hello!

 Wow...time really flies, doesn't it? This year is one for the history books, and I would love to see it just stay there! But, time marches on, and life goes on, and we'll all weather these storms just like our parents and grandparents and great-grandparents. 

I've been busy writing...I'd be ever so grateful if the Muse would let me focus on one thing at a time, but apparently driving me crazy with various ideas and stories is Her goal. I've been working on a new story for Destiny's Child, and I'm hoping to have it ready by the first of the year. We'll see how that works out, as RW has a tendency to like to throw me curve balls!

As soon as the story is ready to be posted, those on the mailing list will receive notification. I'll make an announcement here when the story goes if you want a 'heads up', just sign up for the newsletter!

Traffic on the site is constant, and I want to thank the GREATEST READERS IN THE WORLD for keeping TCO active, even though the show it's based on has been off the air for over ten years! THANK YOU!

Here's wishing everyone a safe, healthy, and happy Thanksgiving...and Christmas as well! See you in 2021!




 March 24, 2019

Hello, hello, hello! 

Just wanted to let everyone know that I've finally got the Guestbook back up and running. There's a link on the main page of the site for access. Would love to hear from you!

Thanks again for the support of the GREATEST READERS IN THE WORLD!




March 17, 2019

Wow...I had no intention of allowing so much time to pass before updating the site! Let's just say that time is whizzing by, and RW is just determined to undermine my best intentions. While I've been working on my first novel (it's going slowly...very slowly. Research, and research, and more research. And then details, pesky details!) I managed to write another story for Destiny's Child. This is another story for the "Déjà vu..." sub-series. A very surprising new 'old' face turns up, to Casey's absolute delight. She's already planning her revenge on Ba'al! While this story does have moments of drama, for the most part, it's humorous. (Jack and poison ivy...)

I hope you enjoy reading this story as much as I enjoyed writing it! Here's the link:

"A Face I've Seen Before"

Once again I'd like to thank the GREATEST READERS IN THE WORLD! You keep the site active daily, and that blows me away, and humbles me, that you would come in again and again and again to read. You guys are the greatest!




February 19, 2018

HOLY HANNAH! Where has the time gone! I know time goes by faster as one gets older, but gee whiz, this is ridiculous! First of all, hello and thank you to all the wonderful new readers who are keeping The Chosen One alive and healthy! It's great to see all the new URLs joining those of the most faithful, wonderful readers in the world! Secondly, I am still writing. Although writing from 'scratch' is a long process. I'm enjoying every minute of it, however, and have two stories I hope to have ready to submit to publishers by the end of the year. I haven't stopped writing my fan fiction. Just haven't has as much time to work on it as I used to have. I am working on a story, I'd like to have it done in the next couple of months, but I'm not going to make any promises. What with picking up grandkids from school every day, and taking care of them when they're sick...well, you can see how my writing time gets invaded...LOL!

Please know that while I don't post stories as often as I did the first few  years of the site, I will continue to write stories for Daniel and Casey. Because I love doing so. 




April 8, 2016

Hello, hello, hello!  I had contemplated for some time whether or not to actually put one of Casey's poems into a story that mentioned her writing a poem.  The story is "Seek and Ye Shall Find", and the poem was in response to the welcome home/birthday party/SGC prom that she and Daniel had attended.  I'd written the poem out shortly after writing the story, but could never make up my mind about including it.  Well, I finally decided 'what the heck'.  So, at the end of the story, her poem is available.  You can also get to it from the introduction page.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I did writing it!

While I am working on an original novel, never fear, I will also be working on the next story for Destiny's Child.  It will probably take awhile to actually get it finished, but hopefully it will be ready by August or so.  We'll see how much RW interferes...

Until next time...remember, you're the GREATEST READERS IN THE WORLD!



January 15, 2016

Holy Hannah!  Time certainly flies when you're dealing with the RW...and babysitting grand-children!  I know it's been forever since I've posted anything, but I promise to check in a bit more often this coming year!  First of all, I'd like to thank the GREATEST READERS IN THE WORLD for keeping TCO active!  Yep, we still get numerous readers in every day, and so many of our 'regulars' read everything through, and then start all over again!  If you're one of those readers, THANK YOU!  You have no idea how much that means to Renée, Lisa, and I when we see that in our stats!  Lots and lots and lots of warm fuzzies!  The readers (that's YOU!) have made this site a success, and you're what keeps me going.  Okay, I'd keep writing these stories, I will until I kick the bucket, simply because I'm having so much fun with them.  But most of that fun comes from sharing with readers who enjoy the stories, so the readers will keep me posting/sharing these stories!

On that note, I've finally had time to write, finish, and get a story ready.  The editing took the longest, and then when I sent it off my beta reader, I was horrified to see it was almost as bad as sending a rough draft!  Lesson learned: never try to do any sort of writing/editing when Hubby and/or grand children aren't sufficiently entertained somewhere other than where I'm trying to work!  LOL!  With Renée's always incredible help, the story is finally ready for your perusal!  I hope you enjoy it!

So, here it is, "His Father's Eyes".

Don't forget, feedback is absolute soul-food for author's, particularly those of us online.  It's the only way we know if you're enjoying what you're reading!

Until next time...  



December 22, 2014

Yes, it's been six months since I've updated.  Wow.  Time flies.  RW certainly has a way of getting in the way! LOL!  To all of my readers, those wonderful folks from around the world who continue to get their "SG-1 fix" right here at TCO, I say THANK YOU...and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!  While I do have a story for the DC story line in the works, it's going to be some time before I can sit down and really work on it.  In the meantime, I've had to return to the Bravenet guest book, as the other site is going to close as of January 15.  I'm not thrilled with the Bravenet site, but it will suffice until I have time to find something else.  So, if you're in the mind to leave a note to Renee, Lisa, or myself, you'll still be able to do so.  The link works now, but if for some reason Spike the Gremlin should decide to play around, please email me and let me know.  I realize that most of my incredible readers email rather than do the guest book, and to be honest, I much prefer that as well.  But there are new readers (yep, we still get new readers to the site, how cool is that?!?!) who might prefer to use the guest book. should work as promised.  I hope! 

And here's wishing all of us a blessed, joyous, prosperous New Year!  



July  23 , 2014

Holy Hannah!  It's been awhile since I checked in, hasn't it?  Well, I have good news!  "All In a Day's Work" is ready for your perusal.  RW certainly threw all it could at me while I worked on this story, from illness to extra hours of babysitting the grandkids to another major home improvement project.  But I persevered, and SG-1 pulled me through!  This is the last story of the 'All In a Day's Work' miniseries.  The next few stories should be very...interesting!

I will be working on a couple of original stories, with an eye toward publication: however, I plan to continue working on my fan fiction as time permits.  So while I won't be posting stories as often as I used to, I will continue to do so.

Thanks again to the GREATEST READERS IN THE WORLD for all of the support and love.  Your emails make me laugh, and keep me going!  You're all the greatest!




March 10, 2014

And so, time marches on.  And on.  And on...boy, does it speed by when you're busy!  Here's hoping that everyone is doing well!  Things are a bit hectic here, but I'm loving every minute of it!  The Muse has decided that writing my fan fiction just isn't enough She's dumped not one, not two, but three different story ideas into my head.  I work on them when I have the time.  I'm also working on the next Destiny's Child story as well, although I haven't had much time for writing lately.  I'm hoping that things will settled down a bit, and I can once again devote at least one day a week to writing!

Thanks to the GREATEST READERS IN THE WORLD, the site remains active!  I can't thank you enough for your support.  I just warms me to the core to see so many 'regulars' re-reading and re-reading the stories available!

With luck the next DC story will be ready to post in a month or promises, that just tempts Fate, ya know!  Just know that I'm still here, and still having a blast on the journey the Muse and the characters have taken me on!




December 8, 2013

Holy Hanna!  It's almost Christmas!  So I'll take a moment and wish the GREATEST READERS IN THE WORLD a blessed Winter Solstice/Kwanzaa/Hanukkah/Yule/Christmas...whatever it is that you observe or celebrate at this time of year.

Just to let  you know, I am working on a story for the Destiny's Child series.  RW keeps getting in the way, however, so I'm not certain when I'll have it completed and ready to post.  Sometime in January, possibly.

Thanks, as always, for making this journey so much fun!

Happy Holidays!







August 22, 2013

Wow!  Time certainly does fly, doesn't it?  (Yep, I seem to be repeating myself here, but...sheesh, time really does seem to be flying past me!)  Here we are, coming up on the end of summer already!  To make these last 'dog-days' of summer a bit more fun, I have a new story to post for the Destiny's Child Series of stories.  It's titled "The Return of the Gray-haired Avengers", and while there are more than a few funny moments, there's also a lot of action and adventure!

I hope you enjoy the story, and as always, I want to thank the GREATEST READERS IN THE WORLD!  'Seeing' so many regulars returning day after day, re-reading their favorite stories is just incredible!  THANK YOU so very much for making this journey so incredible!




February 22, 2013


Yep, believe it or not, it was seven years ago today when The Chosen One first went online.  It certainly doesn't seem like it's been that long!  Because of the GREATEST READERS IN THE WORLD, this journey has been so much fun!  I've enjoyed 'meeting' so many of you, and the emails and e-cards you send mean so very much to me!  I never in the world would have believed that readers could be so generous, but I have the gifts to prove that they are!

Seven years, and readers continue to make TCO one of the most popular Stargate sites on the web!  Even though the show has been off the air for nearly as long, fans worldwide continue to get their "Stargate SG-1 fix", to quote several emails and reviews, here in the pages of TCO.

To all of the regular readers, THANK YOU!  

To those who may have just discovered this site, Welcome!

I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see what happens next!

Until next time!




February 9, 2013

Wow!  Time flies when you're having fun...or when RW keeps you busy!  I had hoped to have this story posted about a month ago, but between RW and a nice bout of the flu from hell, that didn't happen.  However, I'm delighted to announce that "Heroes Memorandum" is finally ready, and posted!  This story was a bit difficult for me to write, as a beloved character makes the ultimate sacrifice.  The nice thing about the Stargate universe is there is more than one level of existence!  *big grin*

I want to thank the GREATEST READERS IN THE WORLD for their patience, and their continued support.  You're all the very best, and TCO is so very blessed to have such a loyal group of readers!  Each and every email and message I receive keeps me smiling every day!  

I hope you enjoy the story!  If you're among the newest readers on the site, contact information for myself, Renee, and Lisa is available on the home page of TCO!

Until next time...




December 11, 2012

Season's Greetings!

Just a little note to wish THE GREATEST READERS IN THE WORLD a blessed holiday season.  Whether you celebrate Winter Solstice, Christmas, Hanukkah,  or Kwanzaa,  may your days be blessed, happy, and filled with the joy of friends and family.

Until next time...



October 9, 2012

Hello, hello, hello!  I'm pleased to announce that "The Recalcitrant Lo'taur " is now available for your reading pleasure!  Part of the Destiny's Child storyline, this story continues the adventures of SG-1, and if you're paying close attention, you'll find the hints for what's ahead for our intrepid team!  *grin*

As always, I want to say Thank-You! to the GREATEST READERS IN THE WORLD for making this journey so much fun!

Until next time...




August 15, 2012

Hello, hello, hello!  My how time flies when you have a lot to do, and a very limited amount of time to do it!  LOL!  

I've been rather lax about keeping this page updated, and for that, I do apologize.  There's nothing major going on at the moment, work for the next story in the Destiny's Child story-line is moving along nicely.  At this point in time I'm hoping to have it posted around the end of September. (*SHAMELESS NEWSLETTER PLUG ALERT!* Folks who subscribe to the newsletter receive an email letting them know the day before a story is to be posted!)

I hope all of you are enjoying your summer, and I want to say "Thanks!" to the GREATEST READERS IN THE WORLD!  You guys and gals rock, and you make this journey absolutely incredible!

Until next time...




June 21, 2012

Hello, hello, hello!

First of all, I apologize for not making the 'announcement' sooner, and thank you to all the great readers who emailed to ask..."has that new grandbaby arrived yet?" Yes, she most certainly did! Son and DIL were scheduled to go into the hospital at midnight on April 1st/2nd in order for labor to be induced, since it seemed the baby was quite content to stay where she was. Little girl waited until 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 1st to decide it was time to make an arrival. She was born around 8 p.m. (I forget the exact time), and the doctor was amazed at how alert she was! (And still is!) Daddy and Grandpa were immediately wrapped around her little finger. Breanna Kay is growing like a little weed, and of course we're all just thrilled. Bricen is a spectacular Big Brother, and enjoys holding her and having her 'watch' as he plays his Legoland video game.

For site news, I've begun work on the next story in the Destiny's Child series, titled "The Recalcitrant Lo'taur".

Thanks for the wonderful feedback on "To Elvis, Or Not To Elvis", and yes, I did have a lot of fun with it. I'm thrilled to know that the readers have enjoyed it as well.

I think that's it for always, a great big, huge THANK YOU to the GREATEST READERS IN THE WORLD for joining me on this journey, and making it so very much fun!

Until next time...




May 15, 2012

Hello, hello, hello!

I know, I haven't posted an update in awhile. I do apologize…RW has kept me busy the past few weeks.

In spite of that 'interference', I finally managed to get "To Elvis, Or Not To Elvis" finished, and my wonderful beta readers have done their usual, incredible job. So, the story has been posted for your enjoyment!

I hope you have as much fun reading the story as I did writing it!

Once again let me thank the GREATEST READERS IN THE WORLD for making this journey such a joy!

Until next time...




March 22, 2012

Greetings and Salutations! I hadn't realized it had been so long since I'd updated this page! I've sent out a couple of newsletters, but neglected to put anything here!

Work is progressing nicely on "To Elvis, Or Not to Elvis". The Real World is interfering on occasion, especially with not so wanted sinus/allergy-induced migraine headaches. Could be worse, so I'm not going to complain too loudly!

I have no idea when the story will be finished, I'd like to have it posted by the end of April, but we'll see what happens. (Seeing as how the newest grandbaby is due ANY MINUTE! now, I could find my writing time a bit infringed upon! But in a very good way! *grin*)

I would be remiss in not thanking the GREATEST READERS IN THE WORLD for making this site as active as it is…that you come in and read, reread, and read again just blows me away! THANK YOU!

Hopefully I'll have more news about the story…soon!

Until next time...




Jan. 13, 2012

Hello, hello!!  Happy New Year!  (Hey, at least it's still January!  WHERE is the time going?)  Just want to wish THE GREATEST READERS IN THE WORLD all the best for the coming year.  Right now, work on the next installment of the Destiny's Child series is underway.  The Muse and the characters have finally worked out all of the kinks, and so far the necessary research has been completed.  (I realize that I have now thrown down a gauntlet that I'm certain the Muse will pick up, which will relegate me to research purgatory in the near future!  *grin*) 

Since this is a new year, all of last year's updates went into a new archive.  Wow, can you believe that?  A full  year passed so quickly!  If you're interested in a trip down memory lane, to see what all has transpired here at TCO, simply go back to my 'corner', and click on the "Update Archive" button. here.

I'm looking forward to another great year...the Muse continues to add to my list of 'upcoming stories'.  As long as I'm having fun (and I'm having a blast!) I see no reason to stop writing the stories I so enjoy.  It's the 'icing on the cake' that so many of you, as Stargate SG-1 fans, enjoy the stories as well!  (The encouragement I get from family, friends, and readers most assuredly adds to that feeling of sheer joy that I have when writing and maintaining this site!)

So, into the New Year we go!  Who knows what adventures lay in store?

Until next time...
