I dont think a sequel is needed here. BIOTB is awesome enough just as a stand alone fic IMO.

Oh, and to that 'circle jerk' guy?

Joel has done the same thing that Samuli Torrennson did with Star Wreck - he made the thing too good to make a decent sequel...

But much like Joel, Samuli has hinted that there's the chance of a sequel.

Two great things to look towards.

If I do pick the project up again, it will feature Zapp Brannigan's father as a primary villain.

There's something to mull on.

Since "Blame it on the Brain" was too perfect to have a sequel I like (hope, hope, hope) future stories will be additional tales rather than sequels... it is hard to add to perfection, but you can always create great new stories that continue the adventure with new premeses on  its own refreshing terms instead of being a sequel to a tale that ended perfectly.  Just my silly blond opinion of course

but really..if you wrote a sequel (or even just another), you'd have to wait another ten years or so just for the scifi media to catch up with you, no?  wink
on one hand i'm tempted to discourage another. on the other hand, we both know that i'll read anything you write and fall immediately into fits of hysteria over its eternal literary greatness.
hooray for ambivalence.

Ambivalence rocks.

At any rate, I'll weigh in with the opinion that I would definitely read a sequel, but it certainly wouldn't be necessary, in the context of the narrative. It did end in a relatively definitive manner, but I wouldn't rule out you creating another enjoyable story.
Or, you could just do an unrelated one.

Coldangel, have you ever thought of publishing BIOTB as downloadable PDF? Chapter breaks, proper type and formatting, all the pictures in their proper places, stuff like that? It would make the reading of it much easier.

zapp's father would be an interesting prospect indeed.. i think you'd create him awesomely.
by the way, you did make up "caroline" (errm, is that how you spelled it?), yes?
i never thought i'd actually like mom.. or wernstrom.. but.. *sniffle*

Easypeasy.

You just need a program that can create PDFs. Many you have to pay for, but I use   http://www.pdfforge.org/products/pdfcreator , which can be downloaded for free and has no restrictions. Ah, open source.

Installing it will create a new printer on your PC called PDFCreator (surprise). Then all you do is create a document that has the story laid out how you want, text, chapters, pictures, etc. I suppose a word processor could be used, but I prefer Publisher, it's got better layout options. Then all you do is print the document to this printer, it'll ask for a file name, and a little later you will have a PDF file all ready to go.

And you can set other such options as document security, picture compression, that sort of thing. Really handy.

Here's to a downloadable file! Need a hand, just ask. Batteries not included. Contents under pressure. Not intended for underwater use. Dryclean only.

Open Office can export to pdf as well, though I think they tend to be a bit bulky.

Super late but when you copy the story (sorry, epic) onto Word it's 202 pages!!!!!! Yowza and what a story. I believe Futurama should have novels published as I need some Futurama related coffee table reading. This story is just soooooo brilliant that it should be published. I'll have more in depth reaction and analysis later.

Reading Chap 24: I can't believe it's not fiction.

I kept thinking "They were the footprints of a gigantic brain!"

Pity you couldn't use that line (wrong chapter for it though).

Edit: (It's now a bit later, I couldn't put it down). Now finished it:

Feels like you put a lot of yourself into this, and it shines because of it. You've blown the world of Futurama apart whilst still being faithful and apologised for it all in one narrative. I almost feel like it should have ended with you as the God-like figure presiding over the new 4-fingered world.

So many laughs, so many "that is so what they would have done" moments, and epic! Epic to the max!

I see requests for a sequel above ^^ but I would suggest not to bother - that's what the reset button is for. Although I am sad that I've finished it.    frown

This is a small piece of advice for anyone else out there who, like me, finds it tough to read fanfiction simply because it's on a computer screen - get a PSP, or anything handheld. It makes a world of difference (chapters 1-9 took me 3 months but with the PSP I read the rest in less than 2 days. 'Nuff said).

Bump!

By popular demand, this story is now available as a PDF file.

I sent it to Futurama Madhouse, but they didn't get back to me, so I've hosted it here:

http://www.keepandshare.com/doc/2251185/blame-it-on-the-brain-3-4-meg

If you're so inclined, you can load it up and save the page so you can... read it on the toilet or something.

Wait, everyone has to sign up for an account at KeepAndShare, or else they won't let you have the file.  roll eyes

And you need to change the sharing controls to share the file with every user that requests it.  wtf?

[...]

FM will get back to you forthwith, I'm sure...
