I writing a comic book script called "Spin Evil Genius" about and evil super villian who retires to become a baker because he wanted to go into a more rewarding field and of course deep down is still evil. I just need to finish up the script and find someone to draw it and crap... you know the usual drill for us crappy drawers. here are a few lines of dialouge from it:


FAT CUSTOMER: I'll have a blueberry pie please!

SPIN (reaches under table and pulls out pie):Here ya go bud.
                                             SPIN (Winks):I had it ready already for ya just like always!

FAT CUSTOMER:I don't know what it is Mr. Spin, But I can't stop eating the pies you make!

SPIN:Well you might say we add an extra ingredent that none else does!

FAT CUSTOMER:What's that, Care?

SPIN (Very Happy): No Crack!

Fat Customer Just looks shocked

SPIN (Laughing):I'm just kidding!

FAT CUSTOMER: Oh, ha ha ha ha!

SPIN (Still Happy): Every bakery adds crack.

Fat Customer looks shocked once again

Chapter 13 of "Universe of Malice" is now up at TLZ. I hope you all enjoy it, though I wouldn't be surprised if this one was a little controversial.

Does sound cool Newhook, keep us in the know on how that goes.

Skimmed Chapter 13 Ken, but what I read was exceptional I must say - it really had me going. Perhaps the uber-goryness was not always required. To die in combat is never a nice experience, not everything needn't be blown into small body parts. However, controversial the rest will be, it is very good and very moving.
I haven't read the entire story through yet in any great detail. But I sure as hell will soon, once I've finished mine  smile

I have just, just begun the first draft of part of the first chapter of my next fc.  It's subject to change a lot, so I don't think this will be out in a hell of a while.  But I won't desert it.  I have big plans for it.  I'm currently debating if I should give out spoliers.

I've finished the first part of a new story. It's kind of experimental for me because it's in script format but I hope it's enjoyable. I'm aiming for scary but I'm also trying to put in as much humor as I can.

I just got a pretty good Futurama fanfic idea... a Halloween one... mwahaha...

A Halloween That Really Bites:While Leela is on a one-weekend vacation, missing Halloween at Planet Express, the professor decides to do some very twisted experiments that she is not there to object to.

She returns to find things a bit more upside-down than she'd expected. Hope she likes Fry's new, nocturnal personality: Nosfryatu.


The idea came from a mixed-up bit of fanart I drew the other day, which portrayed Fry as a vampire. I liked it so much I decided to think up a plot for it. There will be a bit of romance in it... maybe... I'm not a huge shipper unless the ship is ME + FRY, hehe.

OK I'll shut up now.

Well, next week will be my last week of class before a two week vacation... which means lots of writing time, so you expect to see Chapter 15 of "Universe of Malice" out mid this month. Here's a brief scene spoiler, partly inspired by Venus' comments about the final scene of the last chapter. I was going to do something similar, but thanks to Venus for reminding me that Leela's life has been "no bed of roses either"   smile

My first (and as yet untitled) fanfic plods along at a pretty slow pace, and it's probably the dumbest thing I could do right now to post a release date.  But I'm gonna put an incredibly vauge one up anyway to try and force me to hurry up.  I hope to have it out late September, but it would be more realistic to guess mid to late October, or even early November if all does not go well (or if I suddenly get a life - unlikely, but still...).

Aha, I have an idea! A good one! I just need a bit of help from you experienced writers.... I've got this cool idea for a fanfic trilogy, but I need to know:

1) How long is the average Futurama fanfic (# of words?)
2) Any tips on making it seem okay (besides sticking to proper punctuation and spelling)?

Thanks for your time. I'm not afraid to say I need help.

Also, I'll give you a sneak preview of the fic... this may make no sense.

it doesn't matter how long fics are. Some like "Measure" are a few paragraphs long and some like "Universe of Malice" never end. Just write until the story is done. Don't even look at the number of pages you have. If you think it's getting to be too long for a reader to finish all in one go just release it in sections. If it's good we will read it regardless of length.

Okay, No More Fun and Games 2 Chapter 2 is up at The Leela Zone and Fan Fiction.net.  Go ahead, give it a gander, and let me know what you think of it.  I always love reviews, whether they're good or bad, as long as there's some constructive criticism with it.  I've gotta know if I'm going in a good direction folks, so let me know, 'kay?  smile

It's great but i feel it's just too short. Great stories like that should go on for awhile, but that's just my opinion because it's not that short anyway.

i am working on a fic right now called I didn't know. It's about fry finding a long lost family member who, surprisingly, was cryogenically frozen too. Fry started to have these weird dreams whith a shadowy figure saying, Don't forget me and then disappearing without Fry getting a good look at the person. It is through  fry's eyes and I think you might enjoy it. everybody else that has read it has. But i am not finished with it yet but u are welcome to read the first 5 parts.

Don't rush it. Remember that it takes an entire team of talented professionals several weeks to come up with a typical Futurama script. As for writing tips, here is what David X Cohen had to say (fairly long read, but worth it):

 
Quote
"We've found that Futurama episodes seem to work best when there is a compelling dramatic story underlying the comedy. For that reason, we try to take seriously both the epic nature of science fiction and the human emotions of the characters (even if they're not technically human). Interestingly, perhaps, these are things that need to be worked out very carefully at the beginning of the process, yet are the most important to the finished product. If you de-rail early on with the story and emotions, it's very hard to patch things up later. So: for us to be fully satisfied with an episode, it needs to be funny and dramatic at the same time. A tall order!"

(On the Roswell episode): "A lot of Futurama is the function of stealing our favorite ideas from science fiction through the ages. And this is such a rich mine of science-fiction ideas. The more people are familiar with our starting point, the more crazy we can go with it without losing them."

(And from another interview):

"The biggest consideration is that we actually do still have to have an emotion story. And I don't necessarily mean it's a tearjerker, but I mean the characters must have understandable human motivations for doing the things they do in the episode and that there's a real conflict of some kind either between two characters or between one character and their circumstances, the same as you'd expect in any sort of drama. We really work on that. We work on the futuristic details of the show.

One of the basic operating premises, which is a credo of Matt Groening, is that you can put the characters in any sort of crazy, bizarre [situation] you can dream up, but they have to react in a way which people can sympathize with, even if we're talking about robots and lobsters. They still count as people. If something really crazy is going on they have to react like it's crazy. And if it's scary, they have to be scared. And if they're in love, they have to be in love. That's one of the things we're most careful with, is to try to get people wrapped up in a story which they actually care about. And once we have that, we start to [add] on the futuristic sci-fi stuff.

I think what we found as we went along is that the comedy in a show like this plays much better if there really is a good dramatic science-fiction story underlying. Science fiction is such that the visuals and all are so amazing that you actually have to play the drum kind of seriously underneath the comedy, or it starts to just seem goofy and stupid if you don't take yourself a little bit seriously. Trying to get a story that would work, even without the jokes."

i have a few tips for you,Slashco. I am an experienced writer so, where to begin? ok, firts off, when you have your characters say something you have to make people feel what they're saying, like if it's a dramatic sentence you have to make the people who read it feel like it's dramatic. If it's a funny sentence you have to make the people who read it feel like it's funny. Catch my drift? ok, i've learned something over the years i've spent of writing, use details. If the person like in my story walks into like a dark black room use details to describe the room, like could the character see anything in the room? that's basically all u need to know to write a good fanfic. hope i helped u.

Man, this and the 'Fanfic Raviews' topic slipped away quickly... must be a lack of interest in fanfics recently or something...?

Anyhoo, expect Chapter 16 out within the next couple of weeks. Yes, vacation time means writing time, and things are going along nicely. That's about it really. A few things revealed in this one though...

EDIT: Actually, here's a part that might be quite good. Doesn't give too much away, but is kind of large.
