So I've moved on to season 2 and the 'Petulant Partner.' )

I won't give anything away (though really, can there be spoilers for a 50 year old television show?), but an interesting twist at the end -- yet another one that was a little more obscure than most. The closing scene was the typical fluff, wrapping up the little elements left hanging. The plot bunnies are threatening a behind the scenes fic, based on a few things I saw, but we'll see what happens. For now, it's the "Dangerous Dowager."

And yes, I'll stop spamming soon. Really.

Next up: "The Case of the Pint-Sized Client." I've just watched the Mason movie, "The Case of the Defiant Daughter." I wanted to see how things went with Perry and Della and their first run-in with a kid in the middle of a case.

Lieutenant Tragg, LA Homicide, and Perry Mason associate, Paul Drake, standing over a body in room 510 of the Richmel Hotel in "The Case of the Fan Dancer's Horse":

TRAGG: This a Mason job?
DRAKE: I have other clients than Mason.
TRAGG: Oh, yes. But they never turn up the bodies that you two do...

The man has a point, Paul! ::grin::

To pass the time on Wednesday, I plugged in my headphones and started writing. To work out some angles on the Perry Mason fic I've been working on, I decided to do a set of "five times." In this instance, it's "Five Times Ken Malansky Met Brennan Mason, or Five Times Ken Got a Clue." If anyone has read two of my other Mason fics -- "Undeclared" and "Undeniable" -- you'll already know who Brennan is.

When I started writing this behemoth fic back in high school, she probably would have been called a Mary Sue. But I've grown up since then -- thank God! -- and learned a lot about people and relationships. While it may not be readily apparent in these little snippets, I hope there's a little more depth there. =)

So, here is the first of the "Five Times Ken Malansky Met Brennan Mason." I've dubbed this one "The Case of the Shared Secret." It follows on the tail end of the made-for-TV-movie, "Perry Mason: The Case of the Heartbroken Bride." In the final, climactic courtroom scene, one of suspects pulls a gun. Mason tackles the suspect, and it wasn't immediately clear whether he had been shot, or if he had simply dislocated a shoulder.

Needless to say, this started as an exercise, so it's all in draft, and hasn't been beta read. Any mistakes you see now are just part of my writing process. =)
