I was thinking about the S1 episode "March of the Exeggutor Squad" and how the magician who had been keeping Ash under hypnosis to catch the Exeggutor didn't answer for what he had done--both the moral issues of forcing the hypnotized Ash to do what he wanted as well as how Ash had gotten hurt in the subsequent stampede, and I like to think that Brock's protective instincts would have kicked in. And so, I wrote this, an alternate ending to the episode for my own satisfaction.

I'm going with Maddie Blaustein's explanation for the English dub plot hole of Brock's mother stated to be dead in S1 and then showing up in S6--his biological mother was the one who died, and Lola, seen in S6, is his stepmother after his father, Flint, remarried.

I did it–I hit the 50K word goal on November 22nd! I didn’t finish the story, but I had wanted to hit 50K by the 22nd--I was beginning to give up on that as I never seemed to catch up, but a sudden burst of inspiration got me the final push to win the NaNoWriMo challenge--and I’d like to dedicate this victory to the one who inspired this story in the first place, Robert Vaughn.

There is a lot left of this story--I’d say another 10k-15k more, but I’m going to have to take a hiatus for a while before I can finish this story; family issues are going to put me on radio silence for the next few weeks; I’ll be online very sporadically, and some days, not at all (so I can’t guarantee that I’ll keep up with my weekly short affair fics, but I’ll try my best). But that’s life, I guess… And of course, I will return to this and my MFU fics once I’m able to.

It’s been a year since we’ve lost you, Robert, and since that day, I’ve been wondering one thing–

How do you say goodbye to your hero? How do you say goodbye to someone who you found that you could relate to so much, to someone who never failed to put a smile on your face when you needed it most, to someone who you just love and admire so much that you feel it in your heart, to someone who brought so much light into the world and into your life?

How do you say goodbye to your hero?

You don’t.

I have learned in the last year that these things don’t stop. There are tears and there is darkness, but the relatable aspects, the smiles, and the love and admiration just don’t stop. And though the light is dimmed, you keep that light shining, just as he did when he was here. And that’s exactly what I’m going to do.

You don’t say goodbye to your hero, because your hero never leaves you. Your hero is still there, in your heart. Your hero is still your inspiration. A hero is immortal.

Thank you, Robert, for being my hero.

[11/22/32 – ∞]
