If I was a famous author I would publish a book with ten different endings which all went to print with varying degrees of rarity, but not tell the fans about it so that I could watch their confusion as they disagree over how the story ended. Then when they figured it out I would ‘come clean’, telling them that I had released eleven alternate endings and watch them panic again as they all try to find the last ending.
This is perfect.
Sometimes when I’m researching for a Trek fic I like to pretend I’m writing a paper for the Academy.

Surprise beautiful person! Once you get this, you must put it into at least 8 people’s asks (anonymously) who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it is nice to know that someone thinks you’re beautiful inside and out. ♥
Aww thank you so much.
"In my late twenties, I went to a panel on writing for Star Trek, around the time of the Northridge earthquake . After the class, I was walking out of the hall when an aftershock hit. I looked up at all the shaking tiers of the building and there were people in Star Trek uniforms running about, and I thought: “This is just like the show — we’re under Romulan attack!"
"I had insisted on half women on board [the Enterprise]. The network came to me and said, ‘You can’t have half women. Our people say it will make it look like a ship with all sorts of mad sexual things going on – half men and half women.’ So we argued about it like a poker game and they finally said, ‘Okay. We’ll settle for one-third women.’ I figured one-third women could take care of the males anyway."
