New Firefly story …

August 6, 2017

A while ago, a friend of mine pointed out the name drop of Weyland-Yutani in Firefly, and thus that they could be in the same universe. I started getting ideas for a crossover. It took me a while to find the time and required me to feel strong pressure to start writing again, but I finally sat down and wrote it.

Inheritance of the Old Republic

July 13, 2015

I just added a new page, a fanfic I wrote a long time ago that took some elements from the Sith Lords game and wove it into the end of the prequel trilogy. Not long after that, I was reading some of the EU books (it was either the ones right before or right after “The Dark Nest Trilogy”, which I maintain is the absolute worst of the EU, so bad that I’ve only ever read them once) and noted that they went from having a potential interesting conflict to resolve with Kyp Durron and Corran Horn holding diametrically opposed philosophies and Luke wondering how to keep the Jedi together without simply taking control to having him pretty much simply be the one running the whole show without any problem, which irritated me to no end. I had around that time thought of a bit of a story arc that played on that conflict — although wouldn’t necessarily resolve it — that revisited the Knights of the Old Republic games, and I think I briefly started writing it … and then, as is usual for me, just ditched it. The reason to add the story here is two-fold. First, it is a story that is complete and so does work in the vein of the other stories I’ve posted to, well, post some writing here, and second, I want to actually try to write that story now, as pure fan fiction.

So, why do I want to do this? Well, the overarching reason is that I’m looking to focus more on the outside, hobby-type work things that I’ve always wanted to do but never found the time to do, like writing and programming AI and programming games and all of that good stuff, mostly for interest but also to see if maybe it could turn into something that could generate some income in the future. Or not. The reason I’m trying to do this fanfic is because as a fanfic I don’t have to care about getting it all that good or putting a ton of effort into it, and if I fail at it it won’t matter at all, and as fan fiction it can give me something to post on the blog, and so something that has some benefit to me regardless, and in doing it I’m hoping to get myself into the habit of doing that sort of work on a regular basis so that it’ll be easier to slide it into more serious pursuits.

Anyway, that’s what I hope to do, anyway. Hopefully, I’ll be able to and some people will enjoy it. I can’t make any schedule for when you’ll see anything for it, but you won’t get anything this week for certain.

Stories, fanfic, and so on …

January 21, 2011

Okay, so let me restate my intentions on all of this stuff:

I intend to do more stories and fanfic on this blog.  It’ll be a nice break from my philosophical and theological ramblings and also give me an excuse and forum to do it.

Right now, though, I’m too busy to actually do it without driving myself insane.

So, the long and short of it is:  you’ll get some stuff, but I can’t say when.

But you’ll get one of my old short stories now, while you wait:

Fanfic Thursdays On Hold …

November 25, 2010

Well, it’s not like I did much with them anyway, but with preparations for my Christmas vacation and end of turn coming up, I don’t really have the time to focus on this.  So my plan is to put it on hold until after New Year’s, and pick it up then.  I might do or even post some fanfic over the break, but I’m not making any regular plans until I re-evaluate my schedules.

So, we’ll see what happens then.

I lost track of time today …

November 11, 2010

… reading games on boardgamegeek.com

But if you’d like more impromptu BSG fanfic, you can go here:

http://boardgamegeek.com/wiki/page/BSG_PBF

And read through some of the games.  You might like the stories that unfold, and might want to play the game if you’re a BSG fan.

Some are better than others, because some players are better at in character writing than others.  But most of them are entertaining just to read.

Tired today …

November 4, 2010

… so nothing new on the fanfiction front.  But since I gave you such a large story last time that I could have broken up, that makes up for it, right?

You’re welcome.

You do get something after all …

October 28, 2010

… a fanfic based on the old “Birds of Prey” TV series.  It’s not even close to finished and I had a series of them in mind, but it’s a start and it being up here gives me something to continue when I run out of time.

Hey, I never said it would be good [grin].

Check out the new page for it here: https://verbosestoic.wordpress.com/birds-of-prey-1-the-hand-of-the-wolverine

I was going to start a BSG fanfic today …

October 28, 2010

But it crashed when I started it.  I could just reload everything and start again … but I’m tired.  I’ll post if I manage to find something at home, but if not it’ll wait until next week.  Maybe.

Fanfic Thursday: Not again …

October 21, 2010

Too busy this week to do any writing tonight, and I don’t think I have anything ready to put up.  Try again next week.

I really need to get into the habit of doing this, but things have been a bit busy for the past couple of weeks and I need to catch up on everything first.

Fanfic Thursday: Vacation

October 14, 2010

I’m on vacation this week and completely forgot about it.  I’ll try to have something up next week.
