In a few months or so I will be doing collab audio book projects, if you continue making pictures for the fan eBook you made I will put you in my project roster, but you will need to direct. I am a fan of your work, but I can't predict how you would do it

- Writing Evolution -

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 24, 2015, 5:36 PM
Earlier today I got contacted by a very old internet friend I thought I'd never hear from again. The last contact I can really remember with them before today was back in 2009.

We were buddies in a couple forums, mainly one now that appears to be dead. One of the things in our friendship is she made a fan video based from my Buck Rogers in the 26th Century work. This actually got shown in a panel at Starfest 2009. Here is the video:
jassian.com/Buck Rogers/ Buck Rogers720x576.wmv

What is wild about her returning is how without knowing she'd resurface. I was talking today with Firehooves about Starfest and other conventions. This came up because of current writing.

Guys this brings up feeling nostalgic and to add to that trying to help a new writer on FF.net.

Some history here.

I won't go into full detail of works before 1994 since the memories are a little fuzzy, but I want to share my evolution in writing after that point.

As you who pay attention know for a long time, and this spands the years of 1994 - 2001. I made home made comic books. While there are some pieces in my collection that tie to that era of my work. This piece ties the absolute deepest:

Comparing 1998's Work To 2014's Work by systemcat

Years later in 2005 I started taking an interest in reading fan fiction since for a time that year I was dirt poor, and that is free entertainment. Oddly returning to writing started with a none fan fiction piece named "770: Danger in Numbers". Whicn for more than one reason looking back on it now, I'm greatful it didn't make the internet. According to an old data disc that story was finished 3-11-06.

At the start of April that year, "Buck Rogers in the 26th Century" with it's first story hit the net on SimplyStripts.com ...where it was quickly taken off for some unknown reason. Shorty after that I created the virtual series website for it: www.buckrogers26thcentury.com/

An awful event struck in early '09, and those of you that know me well, know what happened. That is primarily what killed the series.

Now during the time the series was still active, I took my second dabble into writing fan fiction with Red Dwarf "MacIntyre vs. The Cats". The shortest piece I've noted that has been also posted to FF.net, and what had me create an account there.
MacIntyre vs. The Cats
MacIntyre vs. The Cats
"George, Where are you? I can't track you visionary through the lower decks." Holly demanded from a video monitor unseen. As George MacIntyre strode briskly down a whining stairwell, dimly lit to the cargo & processing area of the massive mining ship. The Red Dwarf.
The ship was over a five millennial old, it once had a crew of a thousand men and women. It was commissioned for service by the Jupiter Mining Cooperation with an AI computer to run the whole ship named Holly. His only companion for the last five millennial, he needed a break from the computer. It couldn't psychically happen true. MacIntyre was a hologram, generated from the ship.
He could keep quiet though. He'd had enough of chess, enough of watching vids, enough of trying to keep the AI's memory banks active with trivia of who had played best in the Luna golfing torments from 2207 to 2330. Holly had no interest in the lower decks and had made the Scutters disconnect his motioring circuits down ther

For not liking the fact neither of these pieces could ever be published, being fan fiction. Also for wanting to start my own web comic. Light Bulbs got started after some issues with the FTP software forced on me with Comic Genesis hosting / later turned Comic Fury. ( Change of hosting service. ) Start date 10-17-11:
( current hosting )
lightbulbs.thecomicseries.com/

Much later came My Little Pony: United, a dive into pure fantasy after been used to only working on sci fi with Buck Rogers and Red Dwarf:
United (Story) by systemcat
Then came Star Trek Cannon which I wish had your support because I wanted to further work on it. That story is also what halted me presenting my work chapter by chapter which you'll note was confined to just that one attempted story:
(chapter one)
Star Trek Cannon Prologue by systemcat
Next came working on GAH or The Greatest American Hero V 2014 Episode 1. The first real attempt for writing sci fi / action in a modern setting. Not in the distant 26th century like Buck Rogers, and not the 22nd century like Light Bulbs:
The Greatest American Hero V 2014 Episode 1 by systemcat
For wanting to tackle another childhood favorite like how I did My Little Pony, and wanting to take another shot at modern setting sci fi / action. That is why the Inspector Gadget story "The Nature of Change & Destruction," came up:
Inspector Gadget The Nature of Change+Destruction by systemcat
A second story is well in the works.
Odd that I have enough ideas around it to make another virtual series for the first time in years. But I don't think I can dedicate the time again to another VS.

I will say noticing a new author enter FF.net, please support stories with reviews. It means a lot to me, it means a lot to my boyfriend, and I'm sure it means a just as much to other authors.

Please donate points :). This dirt poor kitty wants DA gooshy food :cweeks: :dalove:. .... Ok this has been up for a while and I can only guess no one gets the crack I'm making at an internet comic as to why I'd like points. "gooshy food" meaning stuff. I'd love to be able to buy a print, DA plushie, or even have a premium membership to this site :). The only points I have so far are from Llama trades and at the rate I'm going it will be DA's 20th anniversary by the time I'll be able to afford any thing aside from a bowtie or shades for my Llama.

The attempt is worthy of another try. I recommend neospeech Paul, he sounds like a Vulcan android, much more toleratable than Microsoft Mary.
Sorry I wasn't able to sugar coat my opinion.

It's Nuance Karen22, a 45 dollar voice. Microsoft Mary is the freebie default voice Text-A-Loud uses, but I translate with paid good voices.
