Actually, you know what? If we are going to campaign, then it might as well be for the same person. And I enjoyed reading Shiny’s fics immensely, so it would be well deserved.

All we need now is a catchy theme song for the Shiny campaign... How about "Dust in The Wind," yes that's just the message we need to send.

What is the proper way to ask for a beta?

All right then! This was just a preliminary design, and it'll probably change. Maybe that'll attract attention. Anyway, the reason I nominate her every time is not just because of her fics. It's because she's an expert at explaining the motives and thoughts of the characters with a non-objective viewpoint. And the fact that they all point to F&L is quite a pick-me-up. (Unlike my experience at the POTM yesterday. That was a pick-me-up-and-throw-me-down.)

Go Shiny!

EDIT: I was thinking...

The Ballad of PEELified Shippers

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
of the fans of a hopeful love.
That started from this modest show
of which we can not have enough.

About Fry, who is not the smartest man,
and Leela, who's brave and sure.
For whom the people of which we sing now,
joined a three hour forum, a three hour forum.

The going started getting rough,
Our dreams were twist and tossed.
If not for the courage of this group of fans,
the 'Ship would be lost, the 'Ship would be lost.

The show's once again setting ground on shore, on cable nonetheless,
with Venus, and the shippers, too,
Hopeless, and Shiny,
PCC Fred,
Xan, Arkan, and Prof. Zoid!
Are here on Futurama's PEEL!

Now this is the tale of our union,
we're here for a long, long time.
We have to make the best of things;
it's an uphill climb.

The Shiny and the Venus, too,
will do their very best
to make details of this peculiar 'Ship
obvious to the rest.

No doubt, no dispair, no depression,
we're as happy as can be.
And unlike for distrusters of romance,
the truth is plain to see.

So join us here when you can, our friends,
you're at least sure for a smilet,
as we count down to the show's return,
the secondary pilot!


Just a joke!

If you want me to beta, HS, you can post it here, I can take it, then you can edit it out of your previous post and we can pass it back and forth until complete. Only one thing you need to do for me: Tell me what you mean by 'beta'.

Hum... My version of a beta is probably too involved to do it that way. I basically just want someone to bounce ideas off of in a less public forum. It’s not a huge commitment, no guarantee that I even write the thing. Odds are I will, however, even then it won’t be an epic length story.

Four out of five shippers agree, that shippers are the most fun type of Futurama fan. (This dissention in the ranks will cease once the Shippy Hive Mind goes on-line. Shiny will be queen and we can use "Resistance to emotions while watching Futurama is futile." as our motto.)

Yes, I was gone, and now I'm back! Ralph, if I ever say I'm going into off-topic again, restrain me. I thought I understood it there. I still obviously don't.

So, I'll stick where I know what I'm doing. Posting shippy stuff, like this.



And today's quote is as about as sad as the picture of the day before yesterday.

Forgive me if this is off-topic I just thought it was intersting. In other fanbases (like Teen Titans, RENT, Harry Potter, etc.) you have your crack ships, your canon ships and your non-canon. For Teen Titans it would be canon: Robin/Starfire; non-canon: Beast Boy/Raven and crack: Terra/Cyborg. The canon is the actual couples, non-canon is characters that aren't couples but do have interaction which is sometimes interpreted as a possible romance, and crack ships are romances between characters that have never met or have very little interaction. The Futurama fanbase on the other hand seems to only ship Fry/Leela and seldomly Fry/Amy. Don't get me wrong I LOVE Fry/Leela but I was just also expecting people to be shipping couples like Amy/Kif, Fry/Bender, Farnsworth/Zoidberg, Zapp/Leela... Then again, Futurama is ten times smaller than most fan bases because it was cancelled three years ago. Futurama also isn't as anime inspired (the main shipping that involves slashes, combining names, multiple ships, etc.) as some of the other fanbases. Again, sorry if that was too off-topic.

Anyways I'm working on a Fry/Leela picture. The unfinished version can be seen here:  http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/37299342/?q=by%3Apastelstorm+in%3Ascraps+sort%3Atime

Hehehehehehehe. There are advantages to being an old man - I could care less what others thing, so I say what's on my mind.  And oh my, I wish Katey were more than on my mind...

Well, I would except I've never seen "8 Simple Rules".  Not a single episode.

Sorry, the "Peg Bundy" character is permamently etched into my brain.  That's how I started watching Futurama -  I was channel surfing one night and heard Katey's distinctive voice and asked my wife, "What the hell's Peg Bundy doing on a cartoon?"

Thus two new Futurama fans were born...


@ Pastelstorm:

Most Futurama fans will howl like dogs impaled on sticks if you get the least bit OOC.  Most are strict canon - willing to throw in nuggets of wisdom from episodes to support their hypothesis, ignoring other eps where the opposite was done.

Example:  Bender is suppose not to have a sense of taste, yet he gagged on the anchovie Fry gave him.  BUT, if you were to write a fic and mention about Bender tasting something - it wouldn't matter how good the story was, most of the fans would be beating you senseless about not knowing the characters because you gave Bender a sense of taste.

Always remember when writing your fics:

Bender is always a heartless sociapath.

Amy is always shallow.  She is the cartoon equivilant to Paris Hilton.

The Professor is always borderline evil when not befuddled by his senility.

Fry is always dumb.  Always.  And if he does something right, it's almost always cluelessly by accident.  Anything he does has the ultimate plan of winning Leela's heart.  He has no other purpose in life.

Leela is always right.  Always!  She can do no wrong.  Even if she farts it smells like fresh peaches!  But the angst - she is always emotionally torn in half about everything!  And she's almost schizophrenic - when she thinks to herself, she has two distinctively different personalities speaking to her, and calls herself 'Turanga' when thinking to herself.

Follow these rules and you may not be beaten down for going OOC.

(And now the beatdown starts.  Shiny, Venus, SO, PCC Fred and all others - Ralph's over here wearing a big red dot as a target...)

I became a fan of 'Eight Simple Rules' precisly the same way. I was flipping channels, and then, since Katey's voice is something can hear from (realistically) twenty meters away, I heard her voice. I stopped pressing the channel button, wondering, "What the heck is Katey Sagal (I refer to her by her real name) doing in a normal TV show?"

@Mookie: Darn, I thought I mentioned that! I'm sorry, I so thought I referenced you! I must have forgotten. I spent a while calculating the precise value of Planet Express while watching 'Future Stock'.

@ Xanfor and all others - reread my previous post - it has been edited.

@ Xanfor specificly:

Katey is old enough to be your mother.  Hell, she's actually older than me (now that's something to think over).  Go for somebody closer to your age, like Lauren Tom to lust after.

Leave us old folks alone...   smile

Lauren Tom? No way. And I find it insulting (  wink ) that you just assume my age. How old exactly do you think I am?

And about your edit... That bit about Leela had me stunned with laughter for two point one six minutes. And the one about Fry had me a bit befuddled. As did the last bit about Leela. Character demons, yes, of course. I've read your fanfic.

Not that I know of, unless you're talking about the current Teen Titans comic series.  I don't know what's going on in the current series, but I suspect that Geoff Johns may be on crack.

Personally, I can't really see the comic book version of Raven being in a romantic relationship with anyone.  If we're talking about the animated version, then the thought of Beast Boy being with anyone but Terra makes me sad.

Ralph! I can't believe your grasp of the characters is so far off base! Everyone knows that Leela isn't just schizophrenic, she's full on psycotic! Anyone who comes withen a five foot radius of her is risking physical attack! Being around Leela is like swimming with great white sharks with a cut foot. If she's full you might come out okay, but if she's not she'll attack from below and feast on your life blood. Everyone is at risk including her co-workers.

Huh.

I never 'got' that from her.
I agree she has issues (abandonment, ostracism, insecurity, unrealistically high standards, and so on just to scratch the surface!), I agree she could benefi5t from counseling, therapy, and maybe antidipressants, but I don't see how that ascends to the point of psychosis.  hmpf

Uh, Spacey,

I think Venus was being sarcastic - kinda like the way I wrote my mini-TongueLuck synopsis on how to write a Futurama story.

BTW, add ECST (electroconvulsive shock therapy) to the list of posible treatments for Leela.

Remember, she admits that she's looking for a way to incorporate her violence with public service.

Introducing some new characters, too, such as parallel Alkazar, parallel Kif, the MultiUniversal council, and the Universe A Nimbus's artifical intelligence system. It runs with a LISP. (I can not keep a secret...)

Oh, yes right, now to advert attention from my age Venus's last post, I have a shippy pic for today!

But, suprise suprise, the shippy quote is coming first!

Oh, yes, nice, very nice, oh my yes. Now, I want you to take a good look at this framegrab. We all know what Fry is probably thinking, right? So now, something else for us to boggle our minds for and with...



What is Leela thinking?
