Greetings, this is my first ever post.  For those in a hurry, the link to the first part of the story is at the end.

On Feb. 28 I saw part of "The Day the Earth Stood Stupid" in a hotel room, and was surprised by its quality.  I had seen Futurama from the first season and hadn't been that impressed.  So I looked up Futurama on Wikipedia and was intrigued.  I saw some partial clips of "Devil's Hands" and "The Sting" on YouTube and was hooked, and soon I had the entire DVD series.  I guess technically I've gone backwards through the whole canon, which was an interesting experience.

At first I was troubled why I was so obsessed with what is a first blush an animated TV show--I've lost quite a bit of work time, and was even wondering what was wrong with me for a couple of weeks.  Fortunately I've found PEEL, and there seem to be a lot of maladjusted people out there.     smile

Besides the sacred canon I've really enjoyed the apocryphal works of JBERGES, Venus, SoylentOrange, Layla, Shiny, Kryten, cold_angel, Tounge Luck, DrThunder88, Xanfor, Red_Line, Officer 1BDI, purplefish, and many others at this site and TLZ.  I also loved FemJesse's art and comic strip on TLZ.  I've put little nods to some of them in the fiction that follows.

What I have eventually realized is that this Futurama obsession has helped pull me out of a deep depression I now recognize I was going through at the time.  I say this not to elicit pity, but from scanning PEEL posts I've noticed that a few people may have experienced similar issues, and sometimes it can help to know that others have walked the path ahead of you.

Besides being excellent science fiction, I've come to believe that something in Futurama appeals to the melancholy soul, with deeply flawed characters trying to redeem themselves in a funny but in some sense very bleak future.  And what I had thought was an obsession may have actually been a healing.

  I am also glad to hear the show is returning from limbo, and I'm sure lots of new fans will be joining PEEL.

I wanted to write something as a personal challenge, as a healing experience, and as a thank you to the PEEL community.  So here it is, to be released in parts.  I tried my best to verify the plot was original (outside of Robert Heinlein, of course), but PEEL goes back a long way, and I'm sorry if this particular plot idea has been used before. 
I would be delighted to find a beta for the rest of it.

Thank you.

Not a bad bit of work, JN.  I can't tell if the film script format or just the style of the writing reminds me of my own fics.  I sort of lost track of what was going on in the last bit of the second section and had to reread it, but the rest was good stuff.  Bonus points for:

FryLeela: Thanks again!  Though the show writers don't read fanfic for legal reasons.  We're just in this for ourselves, I guess.

DrThunder: Wow! One of the ancients!  I feel I've been contacted by a member of the Nibblonian Council!  Or a space pope!  I'd welcome any suggestions how to clear up the parallel action of part II.

I've tried to locate your fiction on PEEL and TLZ.  If you are on the latter, you're not using your name, and a PEEL search just turns up an enormous number of posts, hiding any threads that are your fanfic.  You've been busy.  Is there any way I can read some of your stuff?

This seems to be a general problem for newbie PEELies. 

Oh, yes, part 3 of 7.  These days any pass through the Futurama fanfic universe must swing by Venus, patient Peelie goddess...

WElcome to PEEL. I hope you stay. You seem a literate person. More and more people join and post nonsensical things or not at all. How did you not know that futurama is a new medication for all problems, but he side effects may be laziness.  wink The community will only try to vote you off the island and yell "you're fired" if you cause a severe disruption...that, or cause a tear in the spcae time contuum PEEL meltdown, which wouldn't be for the first time.

There are a number of long blocks of Leela dialog in this section, which is sort of non-canonical.  That’s really my only complaint.  The only other things I didn’t like were things I didn’t like from the show itself (i.e. Morris and Munda, and Kif and Amy).

It is really starting to get good.  Struggling against a predetermined fate is, as you pointed out through Fry, a fairly popular sci-fi concept because of the built-in suspense of impending whatever (usually death).  You’re certainly building up to a real nail-biter, and I can't wait to see what happens next!

If I may offer a few suggestions from past experience about formatting that I think would help increase readership on future fics, you might want to forgo the film script format and just post the dialog directly in the thread.  Secondly, if you keep all the fics in one thread, people are more likely to read your prior works instead of just the new ones.

It has been a while since I shamelessly plugged a fic of my own, submitted for your approval are Curse of the One Eyed Jacks and The Social Order.  I've done a lot more reviewing than writing in this forum, and mine were minor hiccups in the grand scheme of things.

Writer: Thanks!  Dunno, about the safer part, PEEL has some dangerous corners...That shipper thread for instance...

Zoidy: Stop making sense! Meltdowns?

Kurt: Thanks.  The natives are friendly.

Thunder: Honest feedback is always rare and much appreciated.  Point taken on Leela.  Unfortunately I'm predestined to post the rest of the script this way. I'll consider repasting entirety into thread at end, but I tried once and had some trouble with formatting and carriage returns after every line.  I'm going through your fics now.

Oh yes, and part 4 of 7: http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=ajgst8h74j2h_10d9jn4j

For what it's worth, ditto on that 3 years ago. Hell, it's why I started writing fanfic as well; so how's that for those walking the path before?  Hope everything works out, and I quite agree with your insights as to the nature of the fanbase.

Anyway, if DrT likes a story, that means I will too, so I'll give this a read when I can.  Best of luck continuing it and thanks for the multiple shoutouts, of course.

Yes, meltdowns, in a sense of a metaphor. It can't literally melt, of course, unless s you had brain problems or had halucinations or daydreams while falling asleep at the computer, but PEEL has crashed three times in it's past. I'm sure WikiPEELia has something on it. Xanfor's profile has link to. It's very informative.

Dr Thunder:  I'm still going through your fics, and am thoroughly enjoying them.  I'm really glad you linked me to it.  So far I'm impressed with the camera angles, neutral on your musical taste  smile

LuvFry:  Thanks for your sweet words.  It was hard on me and those who care for me, and even in our enlightened culture, it is something that most men can't talk about, or let their employeers suspect.

JBERGES:  Reading words like that from someone of your reputation means more to me than I could ever express in words.  So I won't even try.  I hope you like the story, sorry I had to destroy the Preventatron, the most dangerous fictional device ever invented.  No suspensful plot could exist while it existed.

Corvus: I've always loved your atavar(sp?) and your sig.. are you a Donnie Darko fan by any chance?

Xanfor:  SuperShipper!  Of course I know who you are!  This is a good omen, I think, because you've arrived just in time to check out the beginning of Scene 22 in Part 5 of 7 at the end of this post. Of course I wouldn't complain if you read the rest of it either!
I've read your "Amok Time" homage in your fanfic (first one I think).  I admit I haven't read them all, because I am not sure what order to read them in, and when dealing with your parallel universes the order is important. A secret hope of mine is that you'll post a really intelligent long-winded commentary on this story when it is finished.  Actually, I'll even settle for long-winded.  wink

Like Fry and Leela I'm racing the clock.  I'll be out of internet contact for up to two weeks starting Friday evening, so I'm having to pick up the posting pace a bit.  Sorry if the proofreading deteriorates a little...

I can't say Amy is out of character in this section when she gets all clingy and lovey-dovey and seriously sentimental whenever Kif's involved, because the show's writers unfortunately made that happen.

The back-and-forth flow of the dialog is much more natural in section 4.

I love the robot betting scene.  Their ideas of bet distribution were priceless.  The Hedonismbot is always a welcome character, in my opinion.  The reference to erogenous simulators was pricelss (and infinitely decadent).  The "spamming" joke didn't quite hit the mark the way the rest of the lines in that section did, though.

Bender's database access was classic.  I love when robots behave like robots in a non-robotic manner.

Also, Zapp was pretty hilarious.  I especially like the plow-metaphor; it's almost too clever.

Hey! Welcome to PEEL.  smile

I can empathize with you about the depression thing -- and if you're going to obsess over something to get you well again, Futurama is a damn fine choice. I've been diagnosed with borderline personality and bipolar disorders, and I swear that sometimes the only way to lift a self-destructive mood is to laugh.

I hope you have fun here. This is the Universe's #1 Forum.  big grin

soylentOrange: Thanks! Love your 2.75 fics so far.  You can really write a battle scene!

Prof. Zoidy--I looked over your art thread.       cool

Sedna: Thanks, I really savored those adjectives: although I must admit I didn't intend one of those quotes to be a joke.  But hey, I got a freebie!

Sine Wave: Thanks, and I've been peeking at your story a bit, too.

Milksong:  Hello, good to meet you, and thanks. Yes, Futurama is a good obsession, especially since more is coming.  I'm impressed how the fan base has lasted through all those dry years in between. 

DrT: Finished your "one-eyed jack" story.  Loved the rapid-fire dialouge, and cut myself on the wit a few times.  Reminded me of the 1930s machine-gun dialogue movies like "Girl Friday"--besides the bon mots already mentioned by the others, I have a soft spot for "I'm an expert at not doing what I'm told. The key is to ignore what you're told to do."

You caught me on the spam.  It was a throwaway line because my inspiration had expired.  I'm also sensing you are probably not a fan of sensitive squishy Kif vs. bitter sarcastic Kif.  There is also bad news for you, more Morris and Munda in part 6 of 7 below.  I'm curious--what about them don't you like?

That's what I've been thinking this whole time, too (which makes it really hard for me to forgive Leela for treating Fry like crap in the last chapter, but I guess I can't blame her for thinking otherwise).

I have a more troubling theory about the Slurm, though:


Rather than gush about how awesome this story is, I'd just like to say that I'm adding you, JustNibblin', to my list of fanauthors who I theorize are members of the writing staff posing as humble fanfiction writers.  I'd rather gush about the story when it's finished, so I can hit everything in one post. :P

Also... if I ever pick up a pen and write something involving Fry's nephew, can I borrow that whole bagpipe inference?  I thought that was brilliant.

Fry honorary double-post here.  Sorry. Part 8 of 7.

I'm at the end, and I'm nervous.  Things get complex, I hope it's clear.

I hope some of you take as much pleasure from this story as I have writing it. As you may see from the final line, I think the story is symbolic of the show.

Part 6
What is this "NOOP" that keeps coming up?  I see it interspered with "DOOP," so I get the feeling I misread an explantion in the text somewhere along the line.

The bagpipes thing is original, and I like what you're trying to do, but it loses some steam as you set it up.  It might have been more streamlined if Fry started the music, explained the significance, and then forwent the waltz.  I've also never thought of Fry as one of those people who loves the "old country."  It's an interesting characterization, but it seems to have been introduced all at once.

The last part of the update was the best, in my opinion.  I'm not sure I understand Munda's line about "saving our lives, months ago" or Morris' line about losing friends.  I did chuckle, somewhat unintentionally, when I read, "spit him in the face for me."  My immediate mental rejoinder was, "All your face are belong to us."  That's the kind of sick weirdo you're dealing with here.

Seriously though, Leela being consumed by the death clock's prophecy is done very well. 

Last Parts
Fry's humorousness seems to have returned in force during the first part of Part 7.  It was good to see him like that again.  The Leela/Bender argument was pretty good too.

I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be imagining in the existential metaphor scene.  I understand what's happening, and it's cool if you believe in near death experiences as anything more than zero blood pressure hallucinations, but I'm sure such an abstract scene would be better described through visual depictions than literary ones.  Still, your wordsmithing is well done throughout.

I thought you reached the climax well.  Fry probably didn't have to list as many of his accomplishments as he did, but it's nice to see him embracing life as a counter to Leela fearing death.

Good work.  I hope this wasn't the last of your fics.  This forum is in need of a good scriptwritin' revival.

Hello, I keep finding email access in places I don't expect.

It is a nice experience to have something you write be interesting enough for someone else to read it to the end.  In other words, I'm relieved this doesn't suck too badly.

PazuzuJr, SineWave, Crash, Sedna, Luvfry, Officer--thanks for the nice comments! (Sedna, what is your avatar from?)  Officer, please use as many bagpipes as you want.  I stole--excuse me, imitated--many other fan fic ideas in my story.

My bad, I meant "DOOP".  In my job I'm familiar with an organization with an acronym similar to "NOOP", and had a serious case of lexiadys.  So, no secret government organizations, sorry about the confusion.  Will edit that later.

As for Leela's promise and Munda's comment on fry saving herself and Morris...

Dr. T, you are one hell of a reviewer, and you zeroed in many of the things I was uncomfortable about in the story.  The bagpipe section I added because I wanted to give a little nod to Scotland, where I finished the story.  But it is a bit lumpy in there, and I'll consider removing it as in some sense it doesn't add much to the plot.

I also agree that I am a bit uneven on Fry.  I personally find Fry by far the most difficult character to write.  You can write a fool, or a genius, but holy fools like Huck Finn, Forrest Gump, or Fry exist on multiple levels, and it is hard to make someone simultaneously lazy, stupid, unambitious, yet appealing, occaisionally insightful, and even heroic.  I take comfort in that I think even the show's writers took a couple of years to get Fry's character consistent.  Having watched the canon backward in a compressed timeframe really highlights that evolution.

Finally, I did slip into "scrose" at the end, and that I really should have a better way of visually describing some of the final scenes, instead of slipping into a novel.  I'll need some time away from the story to see whether that section can be revised in a more elegant manner.

Thanks y'all!

Hey, just finished the story.  Overall, I liked the idea you had, and enjoyed watching Leela toe the line of insanity like we all know she's capable of. 

 

I was thinking about making 245 little comments about your work, what I liked and what I didn’t, but I think the main points would be lost (plus DrT handled a lot of it for me) So I’ll be brief and abridged.

Your writing style as a whole indicates that you are clearly an intelligent and clever individual.  You craft sentences well, and have a knack for description.  However, the problem is you can’t always be ‘yourself’ in your writing, and need to separate your natural writing tone from the tones of your characters. Waxing poetic while using words like ‘quite,’ ‘rather,’ ‘suppose,’ and ‘perhaps,’ are fine in narration, buy you won’t find Fry or Bender using them conversationally. I had this problem often in my latest fic, I may add, but luckily my beta would warn me (something to the tune of “Stop trying to sound so smart you idiot!!”)

One case in point:

All and all, you have great potential, and I think all the characterization hiccups will iron out as you get into the swing of things if when you write your next fic (My first fic is choppy as hell looking back).  Know that if I read a fic all the way through it means something, and best of luck.  Heed the Thunder.

I can't believe I am just now discovering this story. It rocked out loud! And I loved the little references you made to me and my fic. Totally made my day!

I just finished it all and it was great! The ending was done relly well.You managed to get the charaters personalities just right besides from one or two clever comments from Amy and Fry. Good job! I hope to see more of your fics!
