Out of Universe Interviews- Farah the Ferret Thief

Farah: “You can make it up to me later. How about you start asking some questions?”
The ferret looked annoyed as she stared down the foxy interviewer, but she did agree to have a sitdown with him. Without breaking stride, the Interviewer procured a paper and pen to jot down what had gone down before. The rickety castle wasn't his usual Interview room, but the weather could've been worse as he spoke.
Interviewer: Yes of course, we can do it here. Your reputation proceeds you, tales of your conquests weren't hard to find, finding you was a slightly different matter.
Farah: “I try to keep it that way. How did you find me?”
Interviewer: "Well it wasn't easy like I said. I asked around if anything it's only because you did not move around much between rumors of your activity. Someone with your pedigree can be picked out of th

Resistance in the Outlier Ch 2- A Shady Past
The city of Coruscant was as busy as ever. Especially in it's underworld. People had merchandise to steal and push onto people trying to mind their own business, gangsters had deals to make and people to kill, and The Outlier was the nicest place outside of where the Senate District was to do these things.
Larkin Wulfric had spent a week meditating on the holocron issue as the club scene ran itself; despite being force sensitive, the holocron refused to open. He didn't exactly know any Jedi he could ask, and there was no news from Jayce on the search for more holocrons. The Bothan sighed, at a loss what to do with his ‘hobby’. At that, his door opened to reveal M'uhk, his trusted bodyguard.
“Shouldn’t you still be on duty?” Larkin huffed, really not in the mood to have a chat with his bovine friend.
“<I am. Came to report a black-cloaked Shistavanen. Suspicious,> the loyal bouncer wheezed out in his native tongue. Larken’s ear swiveled, very cu

Court of Owls- North's Legacy ch 3A
On Unstable Ground
-
Maximillian North tossed the young boy into the limo, looking to the driver and recognizing im as a Court member. The talon took a moment to look around and make sure that they were safe for now. Things checked out as a woman in a padded suit exited the limo. He knew of her, not by name, but reputation. Her auburn hair was in a short bob, not much for extenuating her looks.
"The boy. Did he see much?" she asked, worried. Max shook his head, wondering if she was the relative.
"Not at all. Though I fear the acceleration of his growth is the least of our worries." the talon mused. He was starting to not trust a number of people that he should have no problems with. Realizing this, his handler spoke out quickly.
"Quite right...you’re certain they were dressed as members?" she asked, wanting a definite answer. In her hand was a pen that she was fiddling. As she was waiting on an answer, it flew out of her hand, stunning Max at how worried she was over things.

Furry Fists Chronicles-Timber CH 4
After the big fight Timber put himself through, the small Gray Wolf arrived at his apartment with a sigh. After breaking up with Sarah, he had hoped to not come back for awhile, and despite it being close to midnight he imagined he would have been out a few more hours. Luckily, his mentor Spitz eventually got through to the small wolf as he lumbered towards his bathroom. He passed through the living room and by his phone, only to stop when he realized that his phone had messages on the voice mail.
"....you don't have to answer it," Timber muttered to himself. A few seconds later, he picked up the phone and headed for the bathroom so he could check his voicemail from there. Hopping into the warm bath, he hit play all and laid back. Surprisingly, each message was short, but managed to be as painful as he feared;
“This is Kit, pick up the phone…” “Rob, please pick up. We can talk about...erm, what happened." "I've got nothing better to do today Rob, you'll have to

Resistance in The Outlier Ch 1- Knowledge is Power
On the lower core of Coruscaunt was a small nightclub titled 'The Outlier'. Run by Larkin Wulfric, a Bothan street rat-turned businessman, the place was where anyone could get what they needed...provided Larkin thought it'd make the world more interesting.  He was at the VIP table, enjoying a drink when his employee M'uhk, a Gamorrean  bouncer, in front of him stopped a human- well built but nowhere near the size of the security guard.
“Who is it?” Larkin asked. The Gamorrean  spoke in Gammoresse, his native tongue- the only language he could speak. Luckily, Larkin had taken a few weeks to learn the language when he outsourced.
“Let him in. Think I actually know him,” Larkin grunted, turning to see a rather large blonde man, well built, and defined like a proper soldier. This specimen was an old friend of his, Bane Hrogath. Larkin smirked at the memory, they had befriended each other in the slums when he had nothing but him and his half-brother. "

Virtua-Dome: Heroes of Myth
The battlefield around Clint Barton AKA Hawkeye was a widespread forest and it was cold. Though it was humid at the same time, and this baffled Hawkeye-the Avenging archer. The forest was vast, like it’d never end as there was no end to the tree line.
“Well, this sucks, how do you lose him Clint?” he muttered aloud before taking a seat on a long tree branch. “Come out, come out, wherever you are!” the archer shouted. His opponent was Black Panther, the king of Wakanda, and he was much more at home hiding in the forest brush below. Despite several tears in the battle suit, Black Panther was still going strong.
Hawkeye looked around at the forest floor for rustling leaves or a bush, to no avail. A few seconds later, a quick movement in the grass caught his attention and an explosive arrow decimated the area a second later.
"Did I get'cha?" Hawkeye shouted. There wasn't an answer, causing Hawkeye to look around his surroundings with a frown. "Guess not."

Tobias had been kicking at the bathroom door for the past 10 minutes, to no avail. the second he woke up, he had flown into a panic. With no window, there was only one way in and out, and the door was locked on the other side.
"Let me out!" the boy shouted. There was no response, and an oddly clean smell coming from the bathtub wasn't helping his attitude.After a few extra minutes, Tobias felt nauseous. He sat on the toilet in despair; not only was he was worried about himself, but that whoever grabbed him hurt Jessa. ‘Please let me out…” he begged, but he only got silence in return. Tobias didn’t move for the longest time when he hears something coming from the other room. He turned his head in time to have a bullet whizz past his head.
“What the hell!” Tobias shouted as the sound of a gunshot went off. Tobias hit the deck as several more bullets tore through the wooden door. Tobias screamed as loud as he could, but it was drowned

Out Of Universe Interviews- Red the Guide
Red, the famous guide of Caligula, was led to a small chair where a thin, almost gaunt, lupine warrior was seated across from her. He had a cheery demeanor as he kindly spoke.
Interviewer: “Thank you for agreeing to come mam. It’s an honor.”
Listening to his words, Red took a moment before responding. She was calm as she spoke though one of her ears twitched a bit.
Red: “Thank you for inviting me.”
Interviewer: “I admit, I wasn’t sure you could pencil me in given...well, rumor has it you’ve been busy recently.”
Red: “Busy? Yes, indeed the badlands of Caligula are full of danger, but also much wonder.”
The interviewer smirked, actively enjoying her talk. He eventually remember what he was there to do, leading him to clear his throat and bring up a journal.

(AT) Kameilo: Another Day in the jungle
The humid jungle mists hung heavy upon the thick foliage of the jungle floor, it was late into the evening as the sun dipped down below Neako’s horizon, the blue sheen of the gas giant it orbited could be seen dominating the sky.
In the alien twilight a small figure darted from tree branch to tree branch, occasionally stirring small reptilian fliers from their roosts. The small figure kept up its leaping pace from branch to branch, until it paused. The dusk light shone upon the figure as it crouched on a branch. It was a she, a female Jethi at that.
Her skin was a light brown with darker patches around the muzzle and eyes, short white hair covered her head where two batlike ears protruded from. White tattoos in spiral patterns covered her shoulder, stomach, and thighs. They were a part of her homeworlds culture, but were augmented by the mystically inclined Oca prophets of Neako.
She scanned the jungle floor with her light green eyes, a smile coming to her muzzle as she twitched

Red kept her ears pricked forward on alert as she kept watch over their hideout. A thought that had been bugging her finally came to the surface.
“Why were you alone?” She asked Whash who tilted his head to the side in response.
He seemed to have picked up on the word alone. His shoulders slumped as he wondered how he could possibly answer that one. He thought on this for awhile before he came up with an idea. Holding out his hand, he growled audibly as the blue liquid from his suit lining formed in his hand again similar to with the trident. He groaned more as it formed into a sphere.
“Fish,” he grunted out as the construct took the shape of a planet. Sort of. It didn’t have visible landmass, as if it was entirely water. The sphere closed in as it came down to someone that looked like him and another figure. Whash struggled but he got them to move like puppets, the two hugging before they both went into separate pods like they found him in. He wasn’

They held their weapons at the ready but not pointed. The thing stood at it’s full height, but it still looked about a half foot shorter than Ben. What was more worrisome about it was the fact that to Red the thing looked like a more exotic version of powered armor with thick metal around the chest, waist, and helmet while more curved sections of metal and a type of fabric held the joints and smaller sections of the suit together. However even the more flexible materials looked airtight like it’d do just fine underwater or in the vacuum of space while the opaque visor where eyes or a face should be appeared a bit unsettling. The same light blue energy that obscured the face flowed through lines throughout the suit that pulsed with some kind of liquid as the mechanical nature of it was made clear, the thing appeared to stretch and limber up. Despite definitely having some mechanics assisting its movement, if there was any machine whirring it was practically whisper quiet, ev

You’d think after five years of doing this, we would’ve killed each other by now. Yet here we are locked in yet another battle for the city. I guess I’m getting ahead of myself. First I guess introductions are in order. I am called the Blue Guardsman, some might call me a superhero. I’ve never cared for the term myself.
Regardless I stand guard over the city against whatever threats come my way. Ever since that whole asteroid experiment incident that gave me superpowers, but this isn’t my origin story.* This story is about him. The Black raider.
For the past five years he has stormed into the city, smashed up some cars and buildings, made overly dramatic speeches about how dangerous and powerful he is, and how the world would soon be his. You know typical badguy stuff.
He has to be the most powerful adversary in my rogues’ gallery. His powers are a perfect match for mine, we duke it out on the city streets until I finally get the better of him. He

Hello everyone! Merc here with a journal entry. I'm sure everyone knows by now I've relocated, it's definitely nice to be living here there's so much to do and discover. My wife and I are quite happy. It's funny San Antonio has been a place for new beginnings for me. I went to basic training here, I went to my second tech school here after wasting six month on my first. My wife and I spent our honeymoon here, and it's where I enlisted to the guard after eight years of active duty. So I definitely think it's fitting that we're starting a new life here.
Anyways on to less heavy stuff.

When you've sent off to publishers as often as I have you can tell a rejection response just by the first few lines. They're always so polite. "Thank you," "This was well written" Blahblahblah Unfortunately....
Most common reasons I get:
Not a fit for our magazine (Where would it be a fit then!?)  
We have too many submissions at this time (Why did you say you were open for submissions then?)
We carefully balance genre, subject, length, and tone for each issue (Huh?)
But regardless I press on. I do after all have one publication to my name: https://www.amazon.com/Bardic-Tales-Sage-Advice-VIII/dp/1536910201/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1470860021&sr=1-1

Hello everyone, thanks for the birthday wishes over last weekend and any support given my absence in the new year. Just been enjoying myself so just now getting back on here and putting in work. 

The Court of Owls story(what's up next) has been coming along OK, definitely gonna work on how long they are per story section. That extra effort's gonna do me some good so I can have some fun with a Batman story. PLUS, a lot more Court of Owl(or should I say Parliament thanks to DC Rebirth) content has steadily come in...which is awesome, cus I love that story thread and Im glad it's continued tot he extent it's been. Luckily I have time to catch up from Robin War since North's story would be around the time of the 'Talon' books starring escape artist Calvin Rose tho not sure if that was ever clear. 

Anyways, that'll hopefully be good, Outlier's going well and my main thing is handling Virtua-Dome as it did get first place in a little voting I had awhile ago. Due to me putting that off I'll probably be putting in two sized stories for the price of one. Any other one-shot or experimentation stories I finish up will plop in when they're freshly baked, and in terms of any collabs or gifts I will note those accordingly in a manner similar to this journal entry. They will also end up in my little folder Favors, commissions, and collabs. Bunch of fun works from friends I hold dearly due to enjoying the unofficial role of 'Producer'/'Guy with singular good ideas you might use'/'person to bounce ideas off of'. That transitions into the main reason for this post-

Big shoutout to MercenaryBlade who you might have seen around this page and even in my collab folder. The above two story links for 'The Secret of Purbridge' follow the character of Red of Caligula, a mysterious red furred Daedalian(aka alien Jackal people) trapped on a desert planet and trying to make a living as a tracker and hunting guide when crazy things happen to her. Me and Merc have traded stories and even given each other a hand in the past, but this is probably the biggest one we've worked on together that he's dropping on his DA page AND it's in canon with the other stories he's done for her in the Sci-Fi 'Starfire' universe. Read on yourself for more details, it's been consistently dropping Thursdays after him and I do some editing the night prior. Part 3 should drop sometime today so look forward to that and support the man! He's awesome :D

EDIT: OK one more thing! It is also Mercenaryblade related, but in recent time he has taken some commissions for characters from his ever-expanding roster. If you got any offers, feel free to float it over :P. Here is the latest one, done by artist FirePokeMaster of Angela Sphinx.

“I don’t think this is a good idea,” Sarah the squirrel whimpered, dressed in a sports bra, boxing gloves, and padded headgear. Her slim build paled in comparison to both Timber’s cut physique and Kit’s lean gymnast’s body. She was relayed the bright idea of ‘leaving it all in the ring’ by Kit, since that was something that would speak to the blunt boxer. Though the squirrel was now having second thoughts, given how readily they had ‘borrowed’ a ring from one of Timber’s trainers for this little experiment.

“I know, you’ve said that twice already. Was the best one we could come up with, though,” Kit grumbled, dressed up in her Taekwondo gi to help the mood. Sarah’s first words to her was Timber was off to the side, reluctantly dressed up for a boxing match as well.

“Kit, I know you’re trying to help, that’s why I’m dressed up...but maybe we've all learned our lesson."

“I appreciate it too, Kit...but what Sarah's trying to say is we think this is a stupid idea,” Timber grumbled in the corner.

“The fact that you both copped out almost immediately means something. You're both my friends and I'm glad you both feel you have to make up for it. I had no intention of leaving Timber that day, I just wanted some space away from boxing so I was hurt when I heard the news...but yeah, I think this is stupid. I mean, it’ll be a bit before I completely get over it, but is this the best way to try and get over it?” Sarah asked, pointing out that they agreed to see other people because Sarah couldn’t deal with seeing Timber get hurt so often IN boxing matches.

“Yeah, but you don’t wanna leave him. Riiight?” Kit asked, Sarah nodded weakly. "And Timber you're an idiot right?" Kit continued.

"I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed if you want me to admit that..."

"Alright. I’m not too bright either admittedly, and I’m here to own up for my part in things. In a spar, nothing can be misconstrued, this is the only way to really communicate with two fighters,” she said, eyeing both. Timber was very reluctant, but he stepped forward, arms up.

"OK Sarah. Let’s at least humor her...ready when you are," he commented, not wanting to throw the first punch.

"If he doesn't wanna, go for it," Kit hollered. Sarah frowned before hitting Timber's guard with a jab.

"Ouch," the tough wolf grunted, shaking out the hand. Neither Kit or Sarah were too impressed.

"Not sure whose fault that one was," Kit muttered.

"Sorry, I just can't bring myself to want to hurt my wolfie. Not sure I'd do too much damage anyways," she sighed. Timber rubbed the back of his head, not sure how to take this. Kit was worried this would happen, but she had a backup plan and moreover a willingness to put herself on the line.

"Alright, I getcha girl. In my opinion you’re a bit too timid, but I know you got some fire in you under the right circumstances. I've been going about this the wrong way, trying to get you to fight."

"Thank god," Timber started to say when Kit stepped forward, her arms down.

"Give me a good swing."

"Wha?" Sarah questioned in shock.

"Sarah, I know I've apologized to you for my part in what happened, and you’ve forgiven me...but I'm willing to take my lumps.”

Kit shook out her hands as she readied up, Sarah just watching.

“I’m not sure about this…”

“Don’t worry, I can’t get mad. It’s my idea,” she nodded before Sarah nodded back, realizing words were useless at this point and balled her fist. None of the three could expect how hard the shot came in though; it looked unprofessional, but Sarah came with an overhead strike, smashing her knuckles on the top of Kit’s maw. Her legs went wobbly as fell back onto her ass.

Timber looked on, slack jawed as Kit needed a moment to recover herself.

“Are you OK?” Sarah asked, worried she knocked her out cold. A low chuckle escaped the vixen’s maw as she stumbled to her knees.

“Yeah, that’s what I wanted,” she smirked, shaking the cobwebs out of her head as she held her snout. “Good shot girl, hehe. Everything outta your system or did you want a second shot?”

“I’d rather not, that looked really nasty. You should probably stay down, you didn’t look ready to take the hit at all.”

“Heh, honestly you rocked me pretty hard. Still, me and Timber wouldn’t be who we are if we couldn’t take a hit,” she said, stumbling to her feet. The vixen nearly tripped and fell forward, being caught by Timber and Sarah and once.

“You two are hopeless,” Sarah sighed. Just then it hit her- her close friend and boyfriend were a couple of instinct-drive jocks. They both meant well and were now doing their best to help. “How did this not happen sooner,” she muttered to herself before chuckling.

“What was that?” Kit questioned. Sarah shook her head,

“N- nothing. My life would be a lot less interesting without you two is all,” she said before helping Kit into a corner of the ring. “That’s enough punching Kit for one day.”

“Good, cus Timber can use this ring to practice for the finals…” Kit commented. Sarah glanced over.

“Finals?” Sarah questioned, having not been caught up to speed.

“Yeah, he won his match actually. That’s when it sorta happened. He was pumped full of adrenaline and angst. I was there for him, and we both got pumped-” Kit started to say before Sarah cut her off.

“Right, sorry I kinda forgot about all of that. Bit late, but congrats I guess Timber,” she sighed, giving her beat-up wolf a hug. He winced a bit, but appreciated it as he stroked her puffy tail.

“Thanks. Honestly though, it’s next week and I feel like crap. Maybe I can take today off,” he mumbled.

“That semi-final match beat you around that hard?” Sarah mused. Timber buried his face into her chest to ignore that question, not wanting to also cop out he got himself in a cage match after. Kit covered for him,

“Well, that little stag boy did have some moves,” the vixen shrugged.

“Alright. I’ll be at your side this point forward then...seems I’m the only one who can keep you from getting battered. But regardless, you and I are gonna have a talk OK? A civil one, and you can take a small break from getting yourself killed, OK?” Sarah asked.

“OK,” Timber repeated, grumbling a bit before Sarah got a bit stern.

“Hey. I love you, but watch out for yourself,” she said before cutting off any response with a kiss. Timber was happy to reciprocate. He didn’t have the strength to completely pick her up, but he did brush her tail before resting against the opposite ring rope. Kit was off to the side, just glad she only took one hit to the face from Sarah, amazed she could throw a hook.

Maybe I should...no, don’t kill the moment, Kit ultimately decided, sitting against the opposite corner. She huffed, her eyes refocusing as the two made out in front of her.

“Man, I need a boyfriend,” she chuckled to herself. A few more moments passed and she realized things wouldn’t slow between the wolf and the squirrel. “...Hey guys if the owner walks in here and sees this, I’m gonna get an earful,” the vixen complained, though she was promptly ignored as the two continued. She facepalmed, "Guess I deserved that one."
Furry Fist Chronicles CH 5
All's Well That Ends Well-

So Kit's grandmaster plan enacts. Nobody ever said she was a genius. Thing's go to the ring, technically continuing my accidental pattern of 'fight' 'talk' 'fight'. Sarah doesn't want to blame anyone, but you can't blame her for being wary.

OK 2017 has been a fine year for me in a few aspects. Working my own stories is NOT one one of them, I'm ashamed to say this is my first solo project of 2017 finished. But hey at least this one's in time for Valentines day(I got a bit under 2 hours technically so shhhh). This is nowehre near enough, and the scene was admittedly hard to do since I gave myself the task of making all three of these people not unlikeable in this scenario. Let this be a lesson kiddos. Did my best, I'll keep doing my best but the worst is really kind of over.

The bright side is throughout 2017 we'll hopefully see some fruits of my co-op labors, but as it is I have my schedule- Furry Fist(which I just did), Court of Owls: Norths Legacy, Virtua Dome(brand new addition), and Resistance in The Outlier. I had some success following that and I gotta get back up to par. Any extra stuff might make it's way in, but no promises yet. Happy belated New Year, I have the app on my phone now so let's see what we can do here!

Happy late new years; after knocking off some favor fics, I've admittedly got some ways off before getting back on track. But hey, 2017's a new time. Two trailers dropped today. Logan which was pretty good, nice setup for this kind of setup, and Power Rangers. 

Now, it's probably not come up to many people, but I do like Power Rangers a fair deal. Was a nice part of my childhood and I've gone back to Netflix ones I've missed or am nostalgic for. Good fun if you know what you're in for and I've even watched a few of the Japanese Sentai's(where PR gets the footage and suits) and a few of those are a boatload of fun with a different tone and cultural aspects. So since I'm a bit versed, gonna go ahead and see what I got in opinion. I honestly doubt I'm this film's main demographic but as a rule of reviving a franchise, you'd think there is something for someone who likes the original version.

Good;
*Redemption story: alright, was not digging Angel Grove being a shit hole and these kids being edgelords/outcasts/emos/whatever you call em. But the idea of them becoming better people through the power is interesting. It's a classic storytelling device and ideally it raises less than savory characters to becoming greater. I'm willing to see if this pans out.
*Zordon- CG Bryan Cranston looks fantastic. The longshot reminds me of the 90s movie design. Good stuff, don't give the guy terrible puns or anything and it'll be well done.
*Action!: there is some. The suits flow well. There's Zord action and putties(?) might make for a few fun encounters. Rangers look like they'll get messed up, that's good. Should be exciting.
*The Command Center- Alien aesthetic totally works here. Weird organic look is nice and there'ss enough lighting so its not dull. Good change. Avoided the gray and brown is what's real thing we've got going.
*Rita's staff: Is that the green ranger coin I see? Very nice easter egg there, Im totally down with a reboot trying to make sense of something that wasnt explained in the original's more simplistic source material(Rita waits like 15 episodes before breaking that out?). Here, it looks like shes actively using it. Maybe they snap the staff in the end, and she needs a new conduit in a post credit scene...
*Possibilities: Maybe whoever gets it now is some pretty boy with a good evil laugh. Or even she gets a hand from a certain muscle bulging villain(who better be the most terrifying thing ever). If this is good enough to have a sequel, they can take it many places.

Bad;
*Goldar- Uh....thats a lot of gold. The Megazord i at least am warming up to. Goldar not so much. Can't say how the fight goes, but a glorified mirror match is hopefully not what we get. Regardless of what you think of the style it's a shame that a unique design gets reduced to golden version of their Megazord.
*Pacing- I've got the feeling this is gonna feel like a 100 minute episode of the show. Not like a two parter or a nuanced origin reboot...just stretch out each phase of a given origin show. Adding in the training sequences or a real plot twist or something might alleviate a really telegraphed plot.
*Tone- 
I'm not looking forward to the 'real world issues' portion if they're to the level of the first trailer. Now this trailer was not as dank(dictionary definition)as the first trailer, but given the humor that broke up the 'serious' scenes I'm wondering what they're going for. Not enthusiastic. When did the definition of 'modernize' become make it gritty and edgy? It's possible to make something so gritty it shoots well past realism and into over-the-top.
*Alpha- Ya know some things aren't worth translating to a different media. I get that more than some I think. Bill Hader is a funny man, but I am not looking forward to whatever lines they're gonna make him read for this to keep in line with 'spirit' of his role. Don't want that ruining any possible cool scenes with Zordon.
*Music- I don't need Kanye West ever. Please don't tell me there's a bunch of pop songs on here? Say what you will about every other aspect of Power Rangers, but those guitar riffs and leitmotifs deserve to be wedged in your head for a reason. They're good. I don't expect them to bring in Ron Wasserman(though they should, hes great), this is an action series and music should reflect that.

On the fence;
*Rita's everything else- That one line she spoke in the trailer was weirdly gravely. Not sure what shes going for. Physically looks like cues from minor elite minion Scorpina(tho shes hot so thats fine). Im content with her being a damn good boss fight, but im worried it will be for naught.
*The Suits- they seem to move fine, motions not an issue right now and am not picky with CG. Hopefully they'll have some weight to them when the fight scenes hit and we can see how powerful(heh) these guys are. The Guyver-esque alien suits are fine, but not a fan of the bug eyed visors. Always been picky with my ranger helmets though. Also why do we see the faceplates off when they're in the megazord? Reminds me of some scans online from the 90s movie where they tried filming with the visor and mouthpieces removed so the actors could emote. Thats no bueno.
*The Megazord- bit underwhelmed. The individual zords seem fine in motion, kinda worried itll look too generic. Ive seen 'realistic' sketches of the old school megazord and it looks fantastic. Still, it moves well, though wonder if theyll do a pacific rim style combat with slow precise movements. The megazords were never fast gundam-like speeds, more about as fast as a stuntman could move in those suits mixed in with CG for acrobatics, but the fights have to be well paced. Also I wanna see that thing in at least two fights. If the thing only fights Goldar at the end Ill be annoyed(see pacing). A show has an episode coming next week, a film takes more time especially with these effects. An audience needs more bang for their buck than 3 minutes.

Overall- i wanna look at the details and think whoever is doing this knows what their doing and has their best intentions- but still looks like a 2010s reboot. Which is a shame, cus 5 costumed heroes with a giant robot and a damn good budget in 2017. That stuff's done well individually.
Hurm, wonder who could've written that...

I had to share this line from something a friend and I are working on: “Hey two of the people in this group are part animal and housekeeping for the barracks is done by a psychic back home, don’t look at me like I’m a nut job because I came prepared for Fairfolk.”


Hello everyone, thanks for the birthday wishes over last weekend and any support given my absence in the new year. Just been enjoying myself so just now getting back on here and putting in work. 

The Court of Owls story(what's up next) has been coming along OK, definitely gonna work on how long they are per story section. That extra effort's gonna do me some good so I can have some fun with a Batman story. PLUS, a lot more Court of Owl(or should I say Parliament thanks to DC Rebirth) content has steadily come in...which is awesome, cus I love that story thread and Im glad it's continued tot he extent it's been. Luckily I have time to catch up from Robin War since North's story would be around the time of the 'Talon' books starring escape artist Calvin Rose tho not sure if that was ever clear. 

Anyways, that'll hopefully be good, Outlier's going well and my main thing is handling Virtua-Dome as it did get first place in a little voting I had awhile ago. Due to me putting that off I'll probably be putting in two sized stories for the price of one. Any other one-shot or experimentation stories I finish up will plop in when they're freshly baked, and in terms of any collabs or gifts I will note those accordingly in a manner similar to this journal entry. They will also end up in my little folder Favors, commissions, and collabs. Bunch of fun works from friends I hold dearly due to enjoying the unofficial role of 'Producer'/'Guy with singular good ideas you might use'/'person to bounce ideas off of'. That transitions into the main reason for this post- 

(Collab) Red's Tales: The Secret of Purbridge PT1The winds had already begun to scatter sand particles as Red drove her buggy, she cast a worried look at the growing shadow to the West; a killer storm was bearing down on them. She then looked to her right at Ben her human companion.
“Purbridge is less than five miles now.” She said trying to assure him.
He nodded, “Guess we’re not going to finish the mapping job.”
“Not now anyway.” It was then that the small town of Purbridge came into view, it was definitely smaller than the capital city of Chohe.
“That’s a lovely sight.” Ben drily remarked. Still, the place surely had some resources they could supply with. Ben could make out what looked like an inn. It seemed sturdy enough to handle the storm luckily. Surrounding the Inn he could make out were several smaller buildings, though the material was that of synth wood, and some of brick.
“Looks like it’d catch fire even in this storm,” Ben added, only to be hus


(Collab) Red's Tales: The Secret of Purbridge PT2Ben nearly collided with Red in the hall, she gestured to the hotel room. After the two had swapped tales, Red swiveled an ear back.
“I think the town's been taken over.”
Ben sucked in his breath, “We need Sheriff Parsons!”
“We need the militia,” Red countered. “These people are equipped for war.”
Just then there was another quake. Red’s ears swiveled as footsteps were heard both outside and downstairs. She cracked the door open and peered out. It was the clerk running again to check on them. Outside, she wasn’t sure where those steps were going, but the Buggy’s alarm went off not long after.
“The Hell?” Ben shouted.
“We’re fine,” Red muttered hoping to shoo the clerk away.  
“OK good, was worried,” she grunted. She walked up to their door regardless.
Ben tucked the blanket away under the bed as he dropped a hand to his concealed pistol. Red kept the clerk busy.
“I nee

Big shoutout to MercenaryBlade who you might have seen around this page and even in my collab folder. The above two story links for 'The Secret of Purbridge' follow the character of Red of Caligula, a mysterious red furred Daedalian(aka alien Jackal people) trapped on a desert planet and trying to make a living as a tracker and hunting guide when crazy things happen to her. Me and Merc have traded stories and even given each other a hand in the past, but this is probably the biggest one we've worked on together that he's dropping on his DA page AND it's in canon with the other stories he's done for her in the Sci-Fi 'Starfire' universe. Read on yourself for more details, it's been consistently dropping Thursdays after him and I do some editing the night prior. Part 3 should drop sometime today so look forward to that and support the man! He's awesome :D

EDIT: OK one more thing! It is also Mercenaryblade related, but in recent time he has taken some commissions for characters from his ever-expanding roster. If you got any offers, feel free to float it over :P. Here is the latest one, done by artist FirePokeMaster of Angela Sphinx.

If you read Merc's stuff, the last name might sound familiar but you don't know her...yet. *winks at Merc*
  • Listening to: Power Rangers on Twitch *air guitar*
  • Reading: Other People's fics(they give me power)
  • Watching: Wrestling and Power Rangers
  • Playing: Titanfall 2 and friend's Switch
  • Eating: Deli Sandwiches
  • Drinking: Whatever it is,still prefer it to be Coke or Pepsi

For the purposes of DeviantArt, let's say I'm open to most any kind of fiction and new to the commission process. That said, make me an offer in private and something will get done regardless- I enjoy honing my skills with challenges I normally wouldn't give myself in my writing endeavors. I'm sure I'll rarely say no flat-out :). One last thing, I see a lot of great pictures, so much so that I'd rather enjoy stories to go with em. If I can deliver, that's a plus.
