My Fictional Life
Smash The Roadblock, December 04, 2013
Tonight’s story, started back in 2008 (but looking quite different from that version by now), had the potential to be a update-stopping roadblock on the same level as, say, Two Old Dragons. Still not sure exactly where I come down on it, but I think the basic idea remains sound, even if pop culture has got a bit more crowded on this subject in the last five years. Still, it also links to something later on, so I think it’s worthwhile at this juncture.
Flashbacks and Clipshows, November 27, 2013
Had a nice few quiet days for the first time in ages, and it does make a big difference to be able to step through the “window” and actually get some real quality time in. Speaking of call-backs to last week, I went and read “Into The Hole” again, and the name is going to stay. I just don’t like it coming so close to “Throw Chekhov in the Hole”, but with the whole sex thing (read it again) going on there, it feels like the original name has to stay. Tonight, there’s definitely no “sex thing”, but Arad and the gang do get into more trouble.
Beyond That Barren Country, November 20, 2013
Every once (once?) in a while I push the weirdy button around here, and that’s pretty much what happened with tonight’s update. It falls into the ranks somewhere around Evil Aliens Attack! (which was itself later “revealed” to be a movie) and Into The Hole (perhaps the only story on the site I’m still thinking of changing the name of). I’m not allowing the concept of Single Universe (are you a believer?) to dictate everything that goes up on the site, nor am I later going to reveal that “Hero’s Reward was a TV series!”, but in this case Terrible Machine has a definite place in the pecking order of Fritters IV, which we’ll get to down the line.
Still Moving In, November 13, 2013
Tired, busy, and still living on the deadline for both paid work and sweet, sweet puppets. It’s always tough when a necessary link in the chain also fails to really define itself, and that’s what I feel a little about tonight’s entry. Hopefully you’ll at least appreciate the plot points.
