Just finished reading this whole thread and "Green Storm Rising"

Awesome awesome awesome!  Your works are truly inspiring and have given me some incentive to actually get down and write some ideas I have been sitting on.  Thank you!

I feel sorrow for Tura.

I couldn't stop reading.  No worries though.  It was only a matter of keeping a rag handy to wipe my keyboard clean of blood drops every few minutes.    smile

Have you seen his first thread also?

Aww..

Ess: I don't remember thinking you "overdid the shippy stuff" in most of your early work. It was always suitably subtle and appealingly ambiguous.
To me, anyway.

Also 'tis cool that you're still working on some renderings, you're obviously using your eye for photography, on those talents as well.

Did you find out any more about the Australia job yet?

  That's because I always had good betas that made sure I rewrote the really mushy stuff before I went and posted it smile

  Heh, heh "the Australian Job".  I like that, it makes it sound like some kind of sexy spy mission, or something.  I wont know more about that for awhile, yet.

I think those are stories he has already written, but hasn't finished tweaking and/or converting to PDF format yet.

yeah, those two black links are old stories that I'm rewriting a little bit.  "The Leelazarus Effect" is posted in the forum topic that Km73 linked to higher up the page, and "Disillusionment" is posted starting at the beginning of this thread.

Ok, as mentioned, some observations on Leelazarus Effect then, on the occasion of you adding to it: That fic is characterized by how well you had woven a false reality there... The sense of futility running throughout most of it just heightens the sense of tension and serves to provide a satisfying denouement/conclusion when the time device is finally used to its intended effect.

So you are going to take your creative license to revise the finale?  Okay, fascinating, it should be gripping and/or riveting to see what you do.

Things I loved about that story:
The beginning, the middle, and the end.

*bump*

I didn't really know where to post this, but this seemed as good a place as any.

Those of you that have been around for awhile might remember a PEELer named Corvus who, back in the day, used to post fanfics on this forum.  He doesn't visit PEEL anymore, but I've been acting as his beta reader, and so I've read what he's written since he left.  All of his stuff is really good, but his latest fic, The First Day , is so good that I wanted to make you guys aware of it.

 Go read it.  Morbo demands it!

Oh, so you still talk to him?   Yeah, he sure was/is good at evocative description.

Also, when I saw you had bumpled this the other day I thought maybe you had whipped out another short story or novanimation or something. red face

How did the major-maser-lecture-talk on Freitag go?

Not really, no.  Sorry. big grin  I'm still working of and on to rewrite The Leelazarus Effect, but that project still has a long ways to go.  I'm pretty much retired from writing new stuff.

Just reread "Green Storm Rising" again and then watched ITWGY immediately afterwards.  It was a lot of fun and a neat experience.

I am going to go back and reread all of your stuff SO, and I was wondering:  What order do your stories go in - both in the order that you wrote them, and where they fit chronologically within Futurama?

well let me think...  Talora and The Leelazaus Effect take place between the end of the original run and the beginning of BBS, though I'm currently changing TLE so it takes place after the movies.  Disillusionment takes place between The Cryonic Woman and Amazon Women in the Mood, and Green Storm Rising takes place just before Into the Wild Green Yonder.  As far as what order i wrote them in, it was Talora, then TLE, then Disillusionment, and then GSR.

I'm glad you liked GSR.  I think that's my best fic, though the new 'Leelazarus Effect' might top it, assuming I ever manage to finish it

Dang, I just finished reading The Leelazarus Effect twice now and I can't wait to read it again after you revise it.  Out of curiosity, why the change from before the movies to after?  (Unless that is need to know, of course.)

superbump!

This isn't futurama related (though it involves stuff blowing up in space so its kinda related), but I wanted to shamelessly show off share it with you guys anyway.  It's an animation of a gamma ray burst blowing up, which is what I'm doing my thesis on.

Very cool! What are the approximately sizes of the postulated stars in the scenario?

Given that scenario, would the axes of the various GRBs tend to be more likely to be orthogonal to the galactic disc, and therefore less likely to be seen from Earth than if the orientation were random?

the stars that become GRBs are 70+ times as massive as the sun.  There aren't many stars that massive in our galaxy, so we never see GRBs in the milky way.  Stars are aligned pretty much randomly with respect to the rotation axes of their host galaxies though, so, if one were to go off here in our galaxy, there's no telling which way the jets would end up pointing

Neat animation.  What is the goal of your thesis with respect to GRBs?

You, knew, just knew, that some day those fanboy futurama computer animations would come in useful,didn't you?

Then for us to see as many GRBs as we do, given the narrow beamwidth, jillions of them must have gone off.

Neat stuff!

I'm trying to improve the emission models by generating 3D simulations of the pre-burst environment.  Basically, I build a star in a computer and then blow it up.  But yes, I knew the fanboy stuff would come in handy. I did those futurama models to gain some experience so I could make these simulations for work.

Well, we detect these things about once a day.  The opening angle of the jet is only a fraction of a degree (as seen from Earth) due to relativistic effects, so the odds that we'll see any one GRB are practically nil, and that ignores the fact that we miss some of them that are pointed our way because our instruments aren't very good.  So yeah, there are alot of them.  Makes sense though.  If there are a hundred billion galaxies with a hundred billion stars each, then that's going to result in alot of exploding stars, even if only a fraction of stars are massive enough to blow up.

Hmm, I seem to remember hearing something on TV about how there is a GRB really close to us, and also pointed directly at us. Think it was on that "sci-fi science" show on the discovery channel (which is btw, really worth checking out, they fit a lot of high-end concepts into 20 minutes and the presentation is good).

I saw that show.  It was full of crap.  We don't even know how a GRB happens, and even if we did, we would have no way to know which direction the jets would point.
