There isn't much that I can say here. I live thirty miles from the site of Tuesday's disaster. My company has a site eight blocks from the former Twin Towers. I, personally, am not missing anyone in the wreckage, but friends of mine are: a friend's brother-in-law, another friend's old college friend, too many uncles and cousins and brothers and sisters to name or to count. I don't know names, but there are too many of them.

I would like to dedicate this update to those New Yorkers who are down in the financial district even as we speak, attempting to find word of their collegues and friends and loved ones. It is dedicated to the heroic men and women who didn't stop to think, didn't stop to consider whether or not they would be safe, just answered the call and ran into the line of danger to attempt to save someone else's life. It is dedicated to all of the empty chairs at empty tables in kitchens and dining rooms across the east coast and across the nation, where someone will not be coming home again.

To all of our readers who have been personally touched by this disaster, we here at the fan fiction department would like to extend our condolences, and the hope that -- if you are waiting to hear news -- the news comes quickly, and is good news.

Notes From Fanfic Land

The fan fiction section will return to normal work soon. For the time being, I am using this update to feature work from our archives, choosing five stories that I hope will bring a smile to your face. We all need it.
