    Wow...I've loved the show for a while but i've just recently got into reading the fanfictions...and i was thinking there should be a post where people (after they read) can post a review. I just recently read two fanfictions that I love...I got them from www.leela.ar
   The two were "A Helping Hand" by BumbleBee Theta and "And then there were two" by Wu Konguk
   I'm a spaay romantic with a weakness for Fry and Leela lovin' so if you enjoy stuff like that I hight reccomned them...I just wanted to post this cause I really enjoyed them and i figured i needed to mention it  smile

anything by Kryten is worth its weight in gold.
also 1BDI's trilogy series is really really well written. i also highly recomend Nasteve's Flowers in the window. There are more, i just can't think of them right now.

Not really considering that's a joint fic, I never mentioned my two solo efforts.  Plus I didn't put FSAC first on the site list. 

Also recommend any fic by AstroZombie .. well worth the read as well.

Thanks To Daniela for the new block.
FSAC is not just about my art, it's for the fans, any art or fictions will be gratefully received.  I'm not going to go on forever, so if I stop, then without support the site would stop, wish will be a great shame, since it seems to have some popularity

Thanks for the mention! Writers seldom get any feedback for their stories. So I just thought I'd say thanks.

I would recommend anything by Kryten and I'm not just saying that cause he's a partner in TFZ.

BBT's work is also good.

For an excellent read I recommend "Leela's Return" I only wish the author had fished his/her second story: "Fry's Return"

Astrozombie's stories are also an excellent choice.

Edit: Not to nitpick, but it's Tanner, not Turner. Frylight, not Frylite. (The title mispelling is minor though. smile

Kryten's stories are great if you want a good mix of humor and romance.  Very funny stuff.  Allen's are also good; I like his way with words.  smile   Officer 1BDI writes one of my favorite fics and I eagerly await the conclusion.  Astro_Zombie and Wu Konguk have a good handle of the romance factor.  I'm sure there's more, but I don't have very good memory.  tongue

True, some writers (like myself) can be overly dramatic but I don't think that should sour you on fics.  If you want comedy, I suggest Kryten's work and if you want more action, go with Officer 1BDI.  Both are very accomplished writers, and it's hard to find something you don't like in their stories.  smile

Although this doesn't seem like the place to do this, I'm too lazy to start a probably useless thread for just this. Has anyone here read GHT's "Going Insane" at TLZ? I don't get why he's getting top notch reviews. It's very evident that there's not an original thought in the whole thing. It's recycled stuff taken from the show, movies, and other fanfics. There are ideas lifted almost word for word out of some fics.

Now, I realize that as fanfic writers, what we do is also illegal and we have no protection against it, but I thought there was some sense of honor among as writers.

Now, my only real complaint is that this guy is robbing us of a chance to hear his ideas and instead subjects us to the same stuff we've seen before.

Also I'm a LFR, but his fanfic is too sappy. Geez, tone it down man. There is such a thing as too much romance. It's called smothering.

So I'll keep reading for as long as he puts it out simply to see what he does. I hope it improves a little.

P.S. I use he but for all I know GHT could be a she.

Edit: Wow, I relly needed to get that off my chest. Good thing I came here first, instead of going to the author. I might have said something that I'll regret later. If, by chance, GHT should happen to come by and disagree with my opinions, he or she is welcome to debate them. I'm not in this business to make enemies after all. There was one person with whom I did make an enemy only because I literally told him his stories were best used as toilet paper. The result was not pretty and I had to erase some scandalous reviews posted on my stories. That was fun  roll eyes Well, enough from me. TTFN.

why is it, in fanfic as soon as Fry and Leela get together they suddenly start refering to each other by their first names? it's unrealistic and really irritating. Especially considering Leela's first name is technically her last.

In my defense, I never did so. I am guilty of using Leela's last name for her first name, but most of my stories were written before Leela's Homeworld, so it's not so bad.

miss-using leela's first name prior to leela's homeworld doesn't count. But doing it AFTER justifies a good kicking!

besides, my actual point is that they wouldn't change the names they already call each other by. Fry would not suddenly be Phillip and Leela would not suddenly be Turanga.

Whoa! (backs off)   smile I agree with you. Anyway, I'm kinda disappointed that no one's posted anything about that long post I made. Oh well, I was just kinda hoping to stir up conversation here before this place went the way of the dinosaur. Also anybody notice that Zapp's Woman had her stories removed from TLZ? I don't remember seeing anything about it on the site. Oh well, it's not like they'll be missed. I did miss Brad's stories when he had them removed, but now they're back (have been for awhile, but no one has really mentioned it)

I did that in Destiny's Child, as I came to the conclusion after getting married Leela might call Fry - Philip, but who knows what might happen anyway.

but why is that decision made? What is the logic behind this. The same phenomenon happened with X-File fic where Scully was suddenly Dana and Mulder was suddenly Fox even though mulder made it very clear several times that he hated his first name. Leela and Fry probably made the decision to go by their last names for a reason and i don't see why it would suddenly change.

Note the word might in my post, call it authoristic licence on my part for that, who knows what Matt had dreamed up in regards to them calling each other in the future.

Hello everyone i am GHT....

currently i am writting the Going insane series. now working on part ten of projected 12

i am male. i live in russia.

anyway what i have caught off the satellite braodasts in my FROZEN WASTELAND of a home town is jsut about every futurama episode ever.

also i think they would go on a first name basis, like say phillip may still be fry, but remember after marriage the whole woman looses last name and gets husbands last name, so what do you want it to be? fry and totonga? phillip and toronga? fry and leela, just say she kept it as a middle name still used? need some feedback here.

also what you got against the love?   up yours i happen to like it. and they are newlywedds, it is to be expected. i may have it tonned down in part seven exodus, opps spilled some info there, but i suck at comedy. the best i got was in part three really. you got any ideas i would like to hear them.

also yes i did sort of use ideas from other fan fics, movies, stargate sg1, futurama the show, but it is to be expected. at least mine is a collection with variety, not like that meet the parents rip off one.

if you have some original ideas for me shoot or burn my fan fics. i hold the power here. i could have them call each other leela and fry again or whatever, with word changer it is easy.

general and even specialized critisism is welcome. i hold no resentment towards it. one coment about a mistake only makes the next one better.

personally i know parts one and four are a little dry. but i have to move the plot along.

if you want i can make some of you consultants and mail you my stories in an advanced edition for comentary.

"Basically, the complaint here is that Turanga is technically Leela's last name so say the writers. Also, if you called a man one name the entire time you've known him, are you gonna call him by another as soon as the relationship changes?"

also what you got against the love?     up yours i happen to like it. and they are newlywedds, it is to be expected. i may have it tonned down in part seven exodus, opps spilled some info there, but i suck at comedy. the best i got was in part three really. you got any ideas i would like to hear them.

"The complaint here isn't the love, it's the fact they say it every five seconds. You say "I love you" too many times and it loses its effect."

also yes i did sort of use ideas from other fan fics, movies, stargate sg1, futurama the show, but it is to be expected. at least mine is a collection with variety, not like that meet the parents rip off one.

"This is true. However they're still not your ideas. Think about it. If every Futurama ep reused the same material from other eps. all the time, it would get boring. The jokes have all been heard before. Telling the chicken a different way doesn't make it funny. (That's from your other thread where you said you "enhanced" the ideas from others."

if you have some original ideas for me shoot or burn my fan fics. i hold the power here. i could have them call each other leela and fry again or whatever, with word changer it is easy.

"I suggest you sit down and ponder what you want to happen. I was once told "Nothing's original anymore, but there are new ways to tell the ideas." Take a look at movies, the show, and fanfics to see what hasn't been done that you would like to see. By this I don't mean rip them almost word for word as you have done in your parts. Say you've read a story where Leela and Fry switch bodies. Maybe you could have two other characters swap and see what happens.

Always try to considerhow the character would probably act in the situation. Also try to make them sound like themselves when they say things. If they sound really proper that's probably not it. (Ex. of proper Fry: I will do this.) (Ex. of casual Fry: I'll do it.) 

One more suggestion: Stay away from "Zapp gets pregnant" storylines.   smile

I was really hoping you'd pop in. I've enjoyed this opportunity to point out the error of your ways. All of this is, of course, just advice. It's up to you on what you;ll do"

Hope that helps

Yeah, it helps. but i thought that her name was Turonga Leela. and the other was Phillip J Fry. technically after marriage and stuff it would change to Turonga Fry. and why not go on a first name basis? i guess they could refer to each other like always. guess i could write it in to part six for you people.

also the love effects were just for part five. who the hell wouldn't mention it a few too many times.

anyway thanks for the feedback. i have been writting in the dark from day one about this stuff, and it is good to hear some constructive critisizm. keep it coming.

I thought Turonga is Leela's surname, some cultures do use their surname first. There fore if they got married and Fry took her nae he would Be Phillip J Turonga.

i haven't found a good use for the mind switching thing, and also fry's speech should change after only getting nanites that are about 10 times beter than worms, and never beig able to get rid of them, until they eat the oranges that is. not to mention, this time he didn't break his brain. it is continuality. maybe i can bring back some speech patterns or whatever, but the concept stays the same none the less.

also from now on i guess that Toronga as named in the fan fic from marriage on can be reveted to leela, just say it is a middle name thing, and now phillp can go back to fry for you people adverse to change out there.

you would think people wouldn't really care about names and stuff, i mean i did marry them at last. things like that change you know.

You're missing my point apparently. They've always called each other Leela and Fry. There has to be a reason Fry goes by his last name. Leela didn't know about her culture. Calling them by their first names sound weird unless they're in a situation where it's appropiate. In private, they're gonna use the names they've always used.

I also wasn't saying you should use the mind switching idea. I was using an example.

About the speech thing: Just because they're smarter now, doesn't mean they have to talk different. No offense is meant as I understand you're from Russia, but the dialouge sounds like it's from someone who's new to English. Hence all the proper talk.
Also it was going on before the nanites even come in.

Welcome to PEEL GHT. Anyway with the reviews, here's a link to the fan comics at the bottom, if I'm right we should pick a comic and review it.
Fan Comics

First Review, I've linked a review to Kennedy's Return to Planet Wormulon

Sadly, this comic hasn't been finshed yet, it starts of witha picture of Fry spiting out sokme Slurm and that is all that has happened so far! Let's hope he finshes this comic

so what if it started before then, first he is more mature, then he is a moster for half the story, then nanites. i have structured it to make him more mature of what not, because i am not very good with the speech paterns. you try to copy them in spanish or greek. just to get the perspective.

and i guess i can do the name thing, which i will. if i had a less advanced version of microsoft word i would have a real problem changing the all capps names i every line not to mention what is in speech.

also i do art as well as fan fiction.

What did i take? santa destroyed (all me), wedding matrix style was from somewhere i admit, Nanites( all me), Mom getting her girdle sued off (ME), you may be refering to anecdotal little tiny bits of comedy here and there i guess. i admit i do take those, sometimes, but it is arbitrary. it is not like i am blatantly ripping off entire scenes of other fan fics or their entire plot for that matter.

the biggest heist i think i have done is either part two where fry is a moster (juicy details got nothing on this), or part five with eden, but like i said before somewhere i took it up a notch. the moster one is alot longer with more description, and destruction, while in that other one it was just one rather small part, not even a third i would say. the eden thing, well they had a beutiful eden like planet. mine had the imortality, nice animals, magic fruit, and the snake to top it all off.

also i am introducing Ra (stargate sg1) who will be the focal point of parts seven on to twelve, and will be soon pulling off a multi dimensional thing far superior to what that other author did, and has yet to finish.

part six will be a more for fun type thing i don't want to go into details on right now, but it should be good, adventurous mostly, still needs more comedy though.

also i do have some original ideas at least not thought of by other TLZ autors, like everything stargate sg1, along with other key things, like nantes, and santa destruction.

more to come part six to be out within the week.

just like to say I think you "borrowed" a scene from me too. The escape scene from Delivery Impossible looked to make a wee reappearance in one of your chapters.

I was actually quite flattered to be honest that someone read that story and tried to put their own "twist" on it as you say but at the same time i'm kinda angry. I mean, I love writing, but I really suck balls when it comes down to it. I'm an amatuer and a bad one at that and when you steal an idea from someone like me it's like robbing money from a guy busking on the street, its rotten.

my opinion anyways.
