Here's some random crap I'd like to see fanfics made out of. How about you?

(1) Police Drama #574, Where Are You?

Smitty: "Well, only one more day to retirement! Me and the wife are going to sail around the Solar System in my new boat. Just as soon as we nail that creep Mendoza!"
URL: "Solid, baby."

(One minute later, URL stands over the bloody laser-riddled corpse of his partner.)

URL: "MENDOZAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!"

(2) 2010 meets Stephen King's The Stand:

Fry: "Bender? Bender! What's wrong?"
Bender: "Bender's not heeeere, mannnn..."
Leela: "Bender, snap out of it!"
Bender (different, serious voice): "Bender is not here now. I am here."
Fry: "Who...who are you?"
Bender: "I am God's Bender."
Leela looks at Bender and screams.
Bender's pupils are round.

Fry: "What's happening? What's happening?"
Bender: "Something...wonderful. Soon we will all be together."
Leela: "Where?"
Bender: "Where I am now."
Leela: "You're right here, jackass. Make sense."

I'm in the process of writing 2 solo fanfic (Mission : Invisible and No Compromises) and also Part 2 of Minds Apart, so it's all go.  Sort of explains the slowing down of my art recently, I guess.

Футурама Аниматион Гроуп Мембер - Okay, I like a challenge......Bah, to easy.  big grin

More ontopic: I had the basics laid out for a fanfic. But then I had to go read some other fics, and it turns out one of them had some similarities with my idea.

How zealous are people about their fanfics? How much similarity can people accept, without screaming plagiarism? Is it okay to have some similar (not exact copies) chain of events, but leave the overall theme/plot different? Or does the entire fic have to be unique/different?

I'm hoping for some answers, as I'm not about to invest that amount of time/work if it ends up stepping on someones toes?  smile

I'm holding off on more ficcing until I get my new computer set up (which will be when I finally have a place to put the old one).

In the meantime, here's a little piece of weirdness I just thought up.

_____________________________ __
(Lunchtime at Planet Express... We see the gang preparing to sneak out...)

Leela (whispering): Hurry! We have to get out before...

Bender: Ah, there you are!

Fry: Bender! It's not what it looks like!

Bender: You mean you're not sneaking away to the track?

Fry: No, we're sneaking out to lunch so that we don't have to eat your food and get sick and die!

Bender: Ha! I knew it.

Amy: Way to go, Fry.

Bender: Fortunately, I've taken the liberty of having every restaurant in the Tri-Country area shut down for health violations. Also, I've locked all the vendin' machines, welded th' fridge shut, an' booby-trapped the poison cabinet. Escape... is impossible.

Prof. F: Oh dear... well, I suppose I could always die for a few hours.

(He drops dead)

Hermes: Lucky stiff.

Bender: Now, for today's lunch, I got a real treat. Everybody loves haggis, right? But have ya ever tried it sauteed in yak phlegm?

Zoidberg: Yes, once. It was not the taste sensation I expected.

Bender: Yeah, but was it pretigested in a budong-stomach? (He uncoveres a platter of something hideous and repulsive)

All: Ick/Ewww/disgusting/sweet Jah

Bender: Who wants ta go first?

(Off the crew's disgusted expressions. Zoidberg sighs, and steps forward)

Zoidberg: I do this not out of hunger, but out of love and respect for my co-workers.

Hermes: Can the speech and just die already so we can escape, ya cretinous crawdad!

(He prepares to take the first bite)

Amy: I can't watch!

Fry: I'll tape it for you.

(Suddenly, the doorbell rings)

All: I'LL GET IT!

(They push and shove to get to the door first. At the door is Sally, the three-eared orphan, wearing a Girl Scout uniform)

Sally: Hi, I'm raising money for the Orphanarium. Won't you buy some cookies so we can afford things like toilet paper and blankets? (checks a small booklet entitled "Cuteness and You: Maximizing Your Cookie-Selling Potential") I mean, bwankies?

Amy: I'll take five!
Leela: I'll take a dozen!
Fry: I'll take all the rest!
Zoidberg: I'll take theirs and not tell them!

(Seconds later, Sally walks away with a huge stack of bills. Inside, the crew gorge on the cookies.)

Bender: Oh, I see. You'd rather stuff your face with sweet, delicious cookies than eat MY cooking!

Fry (mouth full): Pretty much.

Leela: What happened, anyway? I thought you learned how to cook?

Bender: Yeah, but I can't get the secret ingredient anymore. Turns out it's (finger quotes) dangerous and mind altering. So's angel dust, but you don't see 'em bannin' that!

Leela: Actually--

Bender: That tears it! I'm gonna download every bit of cookin' information I can find! As Mom is my witness, You'll never go hungry again!

Hermes: Bender, no!

Bender: With that new T3,347,921 line the Professor installed, I can download ten billion recipes a second.

Amy: Bender, that line's untested!

Zoidberg: You'll kill us all!

Bender: I'm prepared t'take that risk.

(Bender plugs himself in. His pupils start whirring ultra fast...)

Bender: It's workin'... workin'...

(CGI shot of New New York: Every light suddenly goes off. Hover-traffic lights plummet out of the sky, causing everyone to run in terror.)

(Int. In the darkened PE offices, all the employees are galring at Bender.

Bender: Oh... suddenly, it's all MY fault...

Well, that's the beginning of something right there. Maybe I'll turn it into a real story at some point.

Well, glad you liked it. And you're right, but the lack of laughs wasn't the only flaw in the fic by a long shot. I actually started writing a script recently that was pure comedy (well, meant to be), I had the start and the end but didn't finish the middle. Maybe i will one day, but not for a while

I was writing a fanfic, one about the Parallel Universe. Then I heard that it was going to be a real episode so I canned it. I took what I wrote and let someone else use it in a fanfic they were writing... (the stuff up to where the plot actually was introduced).

In fact, I gave it to Erdrik... hows that going anyway?

Writing on two fics now. One is the final story in The Impressionable Mind Saga. A side note on this: I had asked if anyone wanted me to write a final part in the second story, but didn't get any responses. So I'm wrapping it up for my own pleasure. I promise it's a whole lot of fun  smile

Second story: Viral Denial. More or less on hold for the moment because Bender eps. have been sucking and I need to redo some things so it's not as confusing.

Not my style this to post a bit of fic, but here's the start of No Compromises, it's going to stay like this when I eventually get the rest written, or writers' block goes.

****
August 1st - am

The rhythmic breathing coming from Amy's bed, was rudely disturbed by the incessant clanging of her Mars University alarm clock, informing in no uncertain terms that it was time to get up.  Instinctively she stretched out her arm, and slammed her hand down on the off lever.

"Ai ye, it's morning again, and I was having such a wonderful dream about what presents I'll get for my birthday", commented Amy to herself as she threw back the covers and shuffled out of bed.

As she stood in her satin pink pyjamas, and stretched in attempt to get some wakefulness running through her body, the thought of a nice refreshing shower was strong in her mind.

Just as she headed towards the bathroom, her telephone started ringing.

"Typical, this always happens when I really need a shower", she said to herself, while picking up the receiver.

"Amy Wong" she said into the handset.

"Amy, dis is Hermes" came the voice of the Planet Express bureaucrat.

"Yeah, Hermes, what do you want at this time in the morning?", answered a slightly irritable Amy.

"Good News actually, due to an electrical fault at de office, you can come in late today, say about 9.30" came the response

"Thank you Hermes, I'll see you then" answered Amy as she put the phone down and restarted towards the shower.

****

Leela walked into the Planet Express Building lounge some 40 minutes after Hermes had rung Amy, and stared in disbelief at the mess it was in, there were boxes strewn all over the floor, most of the tables and even the sofa.  Sat at the only table without any boxes, was Hermes, who appeared to be scribbling furiously on a sheet of bureaucratic paper.

"Hi Hermes" she said once his attention had been captured.

"Morning Leela, I gave Amy most the morning off so I could complete this inventory of her Birthday Party items, but Fry and Bender have disappeared again, so will you help?" asked Hermes with a desperate look in his eyes.

"Typical" she muttered under her breath.

"Yeah, sure what needs to be done?" she replied dejectedly

"Only that box over dere, and then we have to hide them in de Lab", he said pointing to a large rectangular box with "Banners-R-Us" emblazoned on the side.

Leela walked over to the box and opened it, and withdrew a banner, after stretching it out to full width, she noticed the wording "Happy Birthday Amy" was surrounded by multicoloured balloons.

"One wall width banner with 'Happy Birthday Amy' printed on it" she advised.

"Check, everything is here for Amy's surprise birthday party, now we have to hide it in the Lab" responded Hermes, as Leela repacked the banner.

Fry and Bender nonchalantly ambled back into the lounge, just as Leela and Hermes were taping up the last box.

"Now dat you two are here, you can store dese in the de lab" instructed Hermes.

"Aww, why?  We helped to bring them in" responded a crest-fallen Fry.

"Yeah, why do we have to do it?" chorused Bender.

"If you two hadn't gone and left Hermes to do the inventory, then you wouldn't be moving the boxes again." retorted an angry looking Leela.

"Yeah mon, now get to it, and quick" commanded Hermes.

"Leela you'd better go and meet Amy, and make sure she don't come in here." he added.

As Fry and Bender started removing the boxes, Hermes wandered back to his table and started bureaucratically tidy up his inventory notes and Leela headed to the front door to intercept Amy, while pondering the best way to distract her.

Leela waited by the front door for a few minutes, before Amy strolled in wearing her familiar pink sweat suit.

"Hi Leela, I thought there was an electrical fault this morning?" she asked

"I managed to fix the fault, Fry had overloaded an electrical point last night, and it had blown the main circuit fuse.", responded Leela.

"Oh OK, so why are you stood there then?" questioned Amy.

"I was waiting for you to arrive", came the brisk response.

"Oh, Why?  Hermes said I could get in late!" came the truthful explanation

"Yeah I know he did, but I'm having trouble thinking of a Birthday Present for you, why don't you come shopping with me, so that you can pick what you want?" she asked.

"You sure Leela, that's unusually friendly of you" responded Amy with a mischievous grin on her face.

"Sometimes I just want hit her so hard."

"Amy, that wasn't very nice" retorted Leela.

"Sorry Leela, I'd love to help you pick my present, as long as we go to Alien Overlord and Taylor for it" answered Amy.

"Amy, that's the most expensive shop in New New York" was Leela's choked response.

"Spleesh Leela, do you want my help or not?" a dismayed Amy shot back.

"OK, just this once though, now let's go." said Leela, as she grabbed Amy's arm and dragged her out of the building and towards the Tube portal.

****
I'm basing the date for Amy's Birthday as 4th August, because Lauren Tom is listed 4 August 2980.

Oh my God. What a bad coincidence. I was about to post a little bit that is uncomfortably "related" to ]PaulFSAC[']s bit above.

Especially uncomfortable because it parodies a very sensitive subject and it's bound to offend. It's related to the recent clothing scandal, which will be forgotten by the time I get my first fanfic done, and there's really no place for it in the fic anyway. It's really more of a parody of the issue, and a knock at the clothing manufacturer. I don't really think Amy's that stupid or insensitive. (Give her a LITTLE credit.) Plus, I like the parody name for A&F I came up with too much to let it go.

Last Warning: Offensive material. Click the link above for background. I do NOT endorse A&F's stance on this issue. I think they are two-faced lying bastards trying to exploit their own controversy. I'm equally shocked by the people who DO back them, especially Asians.


I warned you.

Ive checked at TLZ, FSAC, CGEF and fanfiction.net and nearly no updates at all about new fics. (cept Juicy Details part 2 and my work "no more secrets".

and to BumbleBeeTheta... Would you complete that "i Dream of Leela" series already? I wanna know what happens!  love

two other fics that desperately need finishing are "Fry's departure" and "Fry's return".

Yeah those to really do need finished, their excellent.

I'm really busy getting course work finished off this month, hence the lack of Fic Updates at FSAC though, most of the stuff I'm posting is submitters older works, With a few notable exceptions (You Know who you are People), so get writting people and get those fics into FSAC, oh and TLZ, LIC, CGEF, et all.

Also hopefully when i get throught my course work me and Paul will get 'Minds Apart' finished and then I can get on writting the ideas that have been driving me mad down on paper.  wink

why thank you erdrik. you should've responded to my "feedback is nice" thread.   wink
I actually am writing a sequel to "no more secrets" which involves Fry and Leela as agents that are infiltrating an environment activist group that are about to sabotage the south american oxygen generators (hey, with no jungles on earth, the oxygen gotta come from somewhere right?).
I do seem to suffer some lack of inspiration right now, but that usually returns after a day or two.

but even if we two keep writing, there still is a serious slowdown of ready fics.
my statement stands, write more people   big grin

I'm still plodding on with "No Compromises" and "Minds Apart Part 2", but the place where I work, recently moved a deadline backwards, which means me slowing down even more, as I'm not usually in the mood for doing anything (even that!  wink) after a hell of a day at work.

I think NC Part 1 is approximately 65% complete, and MA Part 2 should hopefully be finished by end of July.

I'll be spending a good chunk of my vacation trying to finish Dr. Strange-Love, or How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love My Worms. Everything's basically in place, I just have to plug in all the dialogue, let it sit for a bit, then tweak it all as best I can.

ONE MORE TEASE!

(Obscure reference: new suicide booths now resemble San Francisco's fancy JCDecaux public toilets, AKA The Real Suicide Booth.

Sign on side: "Cleaner! Safer! More Childproof! STILL ONLY 25!!" They aren't faster, though; patrons have to watch a sponsor message while the blasters warm up:

Booth Voice: "Mom's Friendly Old-Fashioned Suicide Booths are brought to you by..."
"Super-Deformed" Animated Chuck Heston Character: (screaming) "Soylent Green is made of PEOPLE!!!"
Announcer: "It sure is, Chuck...it sure is! Soylent Green. You are what you eat--eat what you are."

Who's in the booth? What is the shocking secret of the booth? What does this have to do with worms? You'll see...soon.)

Just a small update, my upcoming fan-fic "No Compromisies" (Part 1) is appx 85-90% done, and has cleared a 100k in size.  I should have it done and dusted within the next fortnight, Work, FSAC updates and art, permitting.

And yeah, an all new Summery avatar.

His already swollen skull bloated further with vain pride, the would-be author vomited half-baked idea after half-baked idea onto paper, until his work became a huge, swirling mass of conflicting subplots, jokes that had already been done, implausible plot points, and dead zones. It took on a life of its own, and that life was evil. It sat on the shelf, glaring at him as he walked past each day.

Then, one dark and stormy night, it attacked him.


No, really, I will get it finished--but it takes a lot more work than I originally anticipated...sorries.   frown

-----------------

Just for giggles, here's a gag that's getting (mostly) cut; if someone wants to take it, you're welcome to it. I'd like to see a fanfic about these two anyway, even if it's not along the lines this bit runs:

SCENE: The PE crew is watching the TV news, and Morbo is finishing up an interview with his "good friend" Lrrr.

LRRR: Killing other living beings for nothing more than our own amusement is a vital tradition of our sacred religious beliefs and cultural heritage, Morbo. We intend to continue until we have killed every living being in the universe, and no bunch of stupid, whiny hippies is going to stand in our way! The strong shall crush and mutilate the weak! Rrrraaaaaah!

(The broadcast cuts back to Morbo and Linda. Linda seems upset and unresponsive.)

MORBO: Indeed they shall, Lrrr. Thank you for your insightful words. Be sure to visit Earth again soon. Mwahahahaha! Have you any comments, puny human female?

(Linda does not respond.)

MORBO: ...Linda? Linda, we're on the air.
LINDA: Morbo, I'm pregnant.
MORBO: (looks at camera in panic) Oh, sh--

(The broadcast is cut off and replaced with a "Please Stand By" card, featuring a picture of Horrible Gelatinous Blob digesting a station cameraman.)

LEELA: That's just terrible.
BENDER: Here we go again. Quick, see what's on the other channels.
FRY: What, the giant vicious squid-monsters being cleaned out, or Linda going all hormonal on poor Morbo?
LEELA: First, space krakens are intelligent beings that wouldn't hurt a space fly--unless provoked by some idiot bending unit.
BENDER: Well, if they're so damn intelligent, why aren't they wealthy and all-powerful, like some idiot bending unit's going to be someday?
LEELA: Second, as soon as women can reproduce without the use of dimwits--you're all history, Fry. Until then, Morbo is just as responsible--
FRY: Shhh! Leela! We're trying to watch TV!

I'm gonna start on my two fan-fics very shortly. There's going to be one short one and quite a long one where the crew spend a year in the 3003 Formula One Earth Championship - only that seems a bit much - a whole year - so I'm going to turn it into "Anthology of Interest" thing with it being on that What If machine thingy.


Draft snippet

HERMES: Well Amy, what'ya gonna ask it?
AMY: Hmmmm.....well, my parents have been so like, rapped up in themselves, after our Universe Motor Racing Championship team won the the title for 8th time in a row, and they've been talking about branching into Formula One too, so I want to see, what would happen if they did go into Formula One, and fell flat on their butts! (chuckles)

(the room falls silent)

FRY: ...That's it!?
AMY: (slightly crestfallen)What, you don't like it?
FRY: Sorry Amy, but if you don't mind me saying so, that's LAME! Man, if I had finally got the chance to ask a fantasy of mine, it would be all like "What if I was rich, and powerful, [Zoidberg eyes widen] and owned a planet or something-" ...oh wait, you already have this anyway don't you?
AMY: (annoyed)Well G-ur!
BENDER: And anyway Fry, you've already had your turn, and you blew it on some Computer Game crap - what the hell was that all about?
FRY: (hurt)Well...you think of something better!
BENDER: (Seriously gives this thought)Hmm, I was thinking about what it would be like to be 500 feet tall...
FRY: (ponder's this)Hmm, sounds good!
ZOIDBERG: (Peering over FRY's shoulder) You know Fry, I could do those questions for you, they sounded good to me!
(FRY gives ZOIDBERG a bad look)
HERMES: Wait your turn ya filthy lobster!
(ZOIDBERG sags)
LEELA: So anyway Amy, what's this "Formula One"?
AMY: (mezmorising) Oh...well I'm more of an Athletics and Tennis girl, but Formula One is this motor racing series, over a thousand years old, and it takes place only on Earth. It's not as prestigious as it used to be, what with more universal racing series and also it's not that big in America, it's more of a rest-of-the-planet thing.
LEELA: Hmmm, sounds interesting. Can you remember Formula One in the 20th century Fry?
FRY: Meh, I watched lots of sports.
AMY: But did you watch Formula One?
FRY: Nope.
FARNSWORTH: SHUT UP FRIENDS! Do you want to see this rubbish or not!
BENDER: Ah, go on, I've got time to kill before the heist comes in... - oh wait did I say that out -
LEELA: Shuuuuush!
FARNSWORTH: ...Thank you!

(FARNSWORTH turns round and presses a button on a taperecorder hooked up to the What If machine - to the surprise to the rest of the people in the room, a recording of AMY's original question is played in the speakers)
(EVERYONE looks at FARNSWORTH)
FARNSWORTH: I'm tired, I'm not repeating what she said!
