TOP OF THE PAGE HAPY DANCE!!!


so i may have taken that one too. yours had to do with a missle or fighter, or both, and some really pissed off people. that was a more nonchalont take really. in mine they were all knocked out, yes, but it was not as detailed as yours description wise, also yours didn't involve leela, amy, internet, and no clothes. if you know what i mean. Amy wong naked got a slight update......

Kristi, you have no idea how many references there are to other shows not futurama. parts four and five totally steal everything from stargate sg1. Ra, ribbon device, healing device, mother ships, staff weapons, personal sheilds, hyperspace, the ancients, soon to come the nox, furlings, asguard, and haktar. that last one will have a real roll to play in part ten.

if you know stargate sg1 you will see that from four on, i tend to use it alot. in fact one of its more memorable things that gave earth early warning of gould attack makes its debiout in part nine, the dimensional one.

Good an Funny? i will have to work on that, but it will be a damn good story....good enough for your high standards?

comedy doesn't come easily to me, but there will be pleanty of riviting edge of your seat action with ongoing romance, and some serious loss of life.

good only turns things worse i am afraid.

and that is all you get for a hint up through part eight.

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)

Zapp's Woman asked for her work to be taken down some months ago, which we did. Brad asked for his work to be put up again after we removed it when he asked for it to be taken down, which we did, too. So, you lose one and gain from another.   smile

BTW, if anyone has a problem with plagiarised work on TLZ, contact either myself or another webmaster, and we'll sort it out one way or another. A lot of the time I won't notice it and end up needing the original artist or a visitor to inform me of this transgression. It's hard to remember everything that's been submitted. Now, where's the goldfish smiley?

I'll remember that next time Gort, thanks for telling me. I still don't understand why anyone would remove stories. It's like holding a piece of rare jewerly and then snatching it away, never to be seen again. Oh well. I don't claim to understand everyone.

The usual convention is to start at the top and work down.    tongue However, I'll fix that to show the part numbers to end any confusion.

One thing, slow down the updates of this fic, no-one will get chance to review it, if a new part appears almost every day, give it at least a week, so people have chance to read and hopefully enjoy it.

I read Anarchist's fic "A Second Chance". My review: Plot- good. Dialogue- good. Ending- cliched, but good. The only thing I didn't like was that Fry was grossly out of character, but that happens in fanfics. I give it 7/10.

I loved a second chance as well. although i would give it an 8 out of 10, because if really shows an aspect of fan fiction not really shown. i mean i have read only a handful of fan fictions like maybe one, where fry ever lost it. and at that he killed himself, very very sad  frown

on a lighter note, part seven of my series is out on TLZ, just so you know, and can rEview it. hopefully you will give me some critisizm of any kind here. anything is good with me. even insults help make the next fan fic better than the last.

Well, GHT, I don't get it. Couldn't you be just a little more original than this. Scenes from the Matrix, some various fanfics, etc. I particulary noticed your unique take on a scene from my fic. I still have a problem with this, but as you don't seem to listen, I couldn't care less. So go ahead and rip every fic you find and every movie and show you see, I'm sure people will just love it.

Also, you may say that you've changed the idea enough to make it yours, but if I can still tell where the idea came from, it's not.

One point. STAY OUT of the story, I don't want your explanations. If you have to come in, that's proof the story isn't strong enough. I also didn't care for the explanation of why they reverted back to using their show names. You don't have to explain everything.

I also hate that you're reprogramming Bender. Reprogramming him is the same as killing him. That glitch in the program is starting to get old. The killings make little sense.

About each fic being better than the last, I find it just gets more and more senseless. But that's my opinion.

Hey man, it is plot development, bender was nice in one episode, remember hell is other robots? as for being good, bender don't bend that way for long, the more difference the more there is to revert back to hence more of a story. he will be good for eight, not really be shown in nine, and back to his old self in ten. i have this thing all planned out already. i know what will be happening way more than you do, so sit back and relax, enjoy the story. 

how much did i explain? i can think of about two instances of that happening, plus you have to show why they did the name thing, it would just seem strange to just about anyone as to why they are one thing in one fan fic and another in the next. you have to show why in some way, and if that is all i could come up with, then so be it. i changed the names not for you, but for some ohters that also thought the same way as you did. if it wasn't for them, i would have not cared what one person thought.

what is your fan fic anyway? i have read like forty fan fics all over the net, it is all one giant blur to me now. also, what scene was this and which fan fic did i use it in? i could have sworn that i cut down on the ideas from other fan fics in seven.

also, a source is a source. i can tell where it came from because i wrote it and changed the parts of the story myself. i know what the source is, as long as other people don't really know or are not sure, then mission accomplished you have a good story to read. thank you.

as for the matrix, well just look at futurama! look at their internet! his mind was in the computer, and i made a nice microsoft joke with it as well. besides even in the real show fry is always making movie references, you think he would just stand there when he could be as cool as Neo? i wouldn't.

anymore rEviews or questions i can reply to? it matters not to me whether it me constryctive or just plain insulting. i will answer your issues the same.

i don't think cutting down on ideas from other fics is enough. i think the authors want you to stop completely. I'm debating whether or not to write a fic myself and if i were to decide to do it and spend days, even months writing it i wouldn't want someone else taking my ideas saying they could "improve" on them cause i didn't "do it right". it's insulting to every author you've ripped ideas from.

Months? i started writting the going insane series two months ago and i am already ahead of everyone else in the field. i really have no idea how you can spend months writting something like a fan fic.

i was backloged a bit when my fan fics didn't come out very fast for a while and i made six, seven, eight, and just now finished nine, still making ten.

also, i really don't see what things beyond five i have taken from anyone else really. if you are thinking of nondescript settings and themes then well, you are observent and over analyze. until you can point out to me and say "HERE YOU BASTARD!" i seriously will have no idea what you think i stole, if i did.

also, i don't feel that i am "doing it right" as you say, i changed them to my own interpertation and whether good or bad, you the reader have the final say on that. 

also, you know they say that mimictry (i am not sure if that is the word) is the siniceriest form of flattery.

It's like the way authors spend months writing a book.

Also, it's imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Ripping off is not.

then why isn't anybody flattered?

i don't understand the first part of your post. You said you can't imagine anyone spending months writing a fic right after you admitted that you have been working on 'going insane' for 2 months. Your writing it in installments but since it is a continuation of the same story, in my book thats technically 1 fic.

each installment can end the series on the spot. just look at them! i had that in mind the whole time! one can end it, two can also, three ends with proposal, four ends with marriage, five ends with happyness after marriage, six is just there to show you they don't die of heart attacks after the end of five, seven ends with a drunken party, only eight and on ever have not a possible ending. and that is only because i know and have planed out the entire adventure through the end.

Geeze people, we're fanfic writers here. Do you know what fanfiction is? It's illegal, basicly. Well, maybe not illegal (there is that whole "Fair Use" thing that allows parody), but it's definately a legal grey area, and we certainly have no copyrights of any kind over our work. This is not our "intellectual property", as they call it these days. (Personally, I abhor the concept of owning an idea, but that's just me.) We don't do this for profit or even recognition (any fanfic writer who is out mainly for recognition should not be writing fanfiction) - we do this because we enjoy it. We do it for fun.
Why do you care if someone "borrows" your concept? Does it take away from your story? Do you somehow lose the part that was "borrowed"; is it removed from your work and added to another?
Yes, I do agree that "borrowing" ideas is a very bad habit, and that an unoriginal work has no merit, but hell, if you don't like it, start writing your own. I do. Don't worry if you're not very good at it - as long as you enjoy writing it, it's worth the time and effort. When it's done, it's done - your work is complete. See the fruits of your labor and write another one. What other writers do is none of your concern as a writer.
As a reader, you have every right to voice your opinion about unoriginal material, but as a fanfic writer, it is no concern of yours. Personally, I wouldn't give a damn if GHT copied half of my fanfic and pasted it right into his work. I wouldn't be "flattered", but I wouldn't be angry either. I just wouldn't give a damn. Although I would be a bit upset about it as a reader.

but you didn't end it, you kept going. it's still a continuation. You've tried to maintain continuity throughout. And their all under the title "Going Insane" (which i don't get, who exactly is going insane?) So again i still consider it 1 fic. Like the one i was considering is technically 4 seperate stories but since its also a continuation i only refer to it as 'a fic' instead of 'fics' So taking several months to complete it is easily withen reason.

Anarchist, it's not about money or recognition. It's about working hard to come up with something new and interesting for a reader to enjoy. It's about having something unique and special for you to share. After all the time and effert fic writers put in it's not right or fair to take their work and make it your own. And i'm speaking as a reader. i have never written a fic of my own, but if i did, like i said before, i wouldn't want people ripping it off. Strictly as a reader i find ripped stuff to be a waste of time. If i wanted to read something again i would reread the original fic. when i read a new fic i expect it to be completely new.

WHAT THE? HOW CAN THIS BE!!!!

How can seven have such a low rating? i thought six was way worse, but it has the highest rating of all my fan fics, this is a true mystery, can any of you shed some light on this for me?
