Author has written 11 stories for DarkWing Duck, and Zootopia.
As you will likely surmise from the stories I have posted, I am an avid fan of Darkwing Duck. The Disney Afternoon cartoon that first aired back in 1991. He has been my favorite cartoon since his first episode aired and I was very disappointed when Disney canceled the show and I kept him and his ensemble cast of characters lurking in my brain all this time because I have always made up more adventures for characters in books and movies I liked.
I am undoubtedly ancient in comparison to most of the members here, but not to worry my brain still retains all the tensile strength and flexibility of a tin sieve. Just kidding...I have to confess though that I have been ecstatic ever since I discovered Fanfiction about ten years ago and especially this site. I guess that would have been about 4 years ago now since this update to my profile is being posted in November 2016 and even though I haven't posted any stories in any other categories other than Darkwing Duck and Zootopia I DO read others.
I read various X men categories mostly searching for ROMY stories of various genres and Zootopia for Wilde/Hopps but DW is a single parent with a night job, what more do you want from a duck I ask you? :P and he remains hands down my favorite category.
On a personal note, I dislike tragedy and angst unless the tragedy happens to the antagonist, or the story ends up positive despite the drama and I adore fics where all my favorite characters end up happy. If I want tragedy I'll watch CNN. or I'll listen to almost any media that considers itself "current" BAH! In my opinion people have forgotten that positive is uplifting and that going with the easy sell of drama/ sex/ and negative events DIDN'T used to be the norm and in fact it was considered to be reserved for things like major world happenings and NOT used to try and up viewership every time some supposed celebrity goes to rehab or some such nonsense.
Boy do I sound like my Grandma or what?! Fanfics are for stories where the heroes win and the villains lose at least the ones I like are and so I hold out hope that I am not the only person who feels this way, Thank You everyone who posts a variety of stories and I hope to find more of you to review.
Also I very much appreciate any constructive help in maintaining personalities of the cannon characters I Darkwing Duck as I have acquired the DVD of DWD Season 1 and 2 (Does Happy Happy dance) but I have very little time or privacy in which to watch episodes. Still those long ago days of rushing home to watch the Disney Afternoon alas are long ago, So if anyone catches a mistake it's unintentional and I am always up for help. reviews, requests and other feedback.
Thanks Muchly and please have patience with me as I type VERY slowly and have a full time job which slows me down considerably. Also I have recently read the new Darkwing Duck comic being published by BOOM Studios, and while I am not sure that I like these as well as I enjoyed the original cartoons; having said that, I HIGHLY recommend the first 4 issues as they are a story arc that was supposed to be a mini series and it ends on a great upper and has a SWEET twist at the end since they have decided to make this into what is currently an ongoing title.
Also on a personal note I wanted to let people know that while I DO welcome requests and appreciate everyone who contacts me...I DON'T write same sex pairings and usually avoid reading such things as well although I HAVE read some really great writing by several of my faved authors in this genre and even faved their stories since they are so well written and fit their versions of the characters so well. Its not that I have anything against freedom of expression and some of the NICEST and most AWESOME and talented people I know in real life are in alternative lifestyle relationships (being politically correct here heh) but honestly I just can't see any of the Disney characters I grew up with as being that way.
(in fact the lack of available and strong female characters in the cartoons was one of the reasons that Megavolt, Quackerjack, Negaduck and several others insisted that I give their love interests some on screen time as it were hence the inclusion of these various "Ladies" in my plotline.) As an added bonus this has also given me the chance to practice writing original characters and IF I have done a good job these characters fit in well with everyone else and are a good read or so I hope.
My favorite pairing Hands Down is Morgana Macabre and Drake Mallard/Darkwing Duck closely followed by Remy Lebeau/Gambit X Anna Marie/ Rogue of the X men and in that second pair I also admit to liking the 90's version of the comic book characters best since Rogue has sass and fire and Gambit is confident and they are far more interesting and well rounded there than the sorry excuse for a Rogue they ended up with by the third movie. I mean Bobby and Marie??? Ewww and making Gambit ten or more years older than he is in the comics was just dirty pool to all us ROMY fans!! Sorry I'll get off my soap box now LOL and get back to quietly typing. I have also JUST this year become a TOTAL Zootopia fan and Wilde/Hopps is now my newest love.
I live in the united states and welcome e mail inquires so please feel free to contact me although I will likely not get to check my e mail every day I will get there sooner or later
I have also posted my first fanfiction about something other than Darkwing , I LOVE Zootopia and am totally fired up about this great movie and it's universe.
I am TOTALLY fine with what Disney has done with my two favorite characters Judy Hopps and Nicholas P. Wilde but I have to confess that I am also a fan of the pairing of Wilde/Hopps and I will have jumped on that bandwagon with both feet. But it's the wonderful friendship and 3 dimensional vulnerabilities of the characters that so beguile and tease. There are FLAWS and mistakes committed by not just the main characters but by many of them and it's fascinating. especially since it is TOTALLY classic Disney in the end (which came WAY too soon for me) I am Hoping for a sequel and I am saving up for the DVD which I now HAVE WOOT!
I have my new Zootopia story almost half way done and am working on filling in with a supplemental story to fill in background and details while trying to keep the plot moving that I need a title for so please feel free to suggest ideas if you read my other Zootopia story called Learning Curve at all.
I have actually developed a bit of a timeline and a story arc for my Darkwing Fiction now and I thought it would be a good idea to list it here for people since I don't always post things in order even though I would like to do so since it seems tidier that way.
My plots happen in this order :
So far, For the Heroic side of the coin I have:
Monoculo's Mistake (this is a flashback to about two months before Hexes & Vexes and is in response to questions asked by Pottersparky and Pokefan 366) Complete
Hexes & Vexes (This is the main plot establishing my version of Disney's Duckyverse and it goes from April 17th or so to about the middle of May.) Complete
(a word here, this fic is the first one I posted and originally it was going to be a three part plot with three separate stories AND it turned out to be SCADS longer than I originally thought it would so at some point next year I hope to go back and reedit this and repost it possibly as a part 1-3. However, it is a HUGE challenge for me to edit my own work and I don't have a Beta now since my Beta has been offline for just over a year so I am not starting this project anytime soon (UNLESS someone out there offers a helping hand?) hint??)
Commitment Commencement (this happens about six weeks or so after the end of Hexes and introduces my non cannon plots)Complete
Trials & Tribulations (this is my most disturbing fic and I hope it doesn't turn people away from my stories. Honker fans DON'T worry he and his family will be better before my plots are through I promise)Complete
this is a special request from my good friend and former beta Jeremy since Honker is his favorite character and I wanted to stretch as a writer if you don't want to read this then just e mail me for a plot synopsis and I will gladly give you the details you need to continue reading while skipping this plot
Gosalyn's Past (this Happens about September 1st and takes the timeline through the end of the month...it shows Drake Mallard's first encounter with FOWL as a 16 year old youngster and is my favorite story I have completed so far.)Complete
Through Rose colored Glass (Bushroot XOC Darkwing X Morgana) Bushroot gets a life! well sort of, and This is also planned to showcase Darkwing and show off his crime busting side since most of my other heroic character fics have tended to show more of his shy and uncertain Drake Mallard side and hopefully you will all see the crime fighter and Guardian of St. Canard at his purple and teal best (in spite of his ego) and in it I hope to fill out the rest of the team of villains that are planning on taking down both the Justice Ducks and the Fearsome Five tentatively this fic should use up October but as of yet I don't actually know how long this is or how much of the actual timeline it takes up
My Son the Vigilante this starts on September 21 and continues from there, deals with Drake's foster parent's, and some of the Wedding Madness and in it I hope to show how the twins were separated and how they ended up as they are among other things.
The Christmas Cookie Challenge (as you can probably guess from the title this fic happens in December and is actually a sort of parody of the Food Network Challenge shows that they used to put on every week and it also deals with my version of the Ducky-verses reality of Christmas and Santa, The myth, The legend, The cookie contest judge?! yes indeed folks you heard correctly, after all who would know Christmas Cookies better than Santa himself? And while it IS true that he knows who is naughty and who is nice it may take more than his usual Christmas magic to get out of this mess since Gosalyn isn't the only Mallard family member with designs on the Big Guy from way up North. (But don't worry your heads kiddies, even though things may not look too cheery for the man in the red suit Darkwing Duck is on the case so hang those stockings and say your prayers 'cause Santa Claus is coming to town and Neither he nor St. Canard will ever be quite the same for the experience!)
Morgana's Fancy (this is actually my only M rated fic so far and it is an experiment in trying to include fairly graphic sex in a plot since I hope one day to be a published author and my family insists that sex is an important part of selling modern books. I am honestly unconvinced of the validity of this statement, but since I am currently trying to break into the regular Fantasy genre and not necessarily the Teen market, I decided to give this a go in order to get something like this under my belt. if you'll pardon the expression.) (PLEASE DO NOT read this if you are under age for this sort of thing or if graphic sex scenes offend you. I have tried very hard not to exceed the M rating and I ask for only constructive criticism and reviews on this fic please)Complete
There will also be a wedding fic and several arcs are planned for after this as well... One of which explains who separated Dirk and Drake and by doing so inadvertently created both Negaduck and Darkwing. This is a fact which should bring this mystery villain to ruin if all goes well but it is as of yet unnamed and very vague except for the hints I have been trying to show in various stories since I have been planning on showcasing this mystery ever since I thought up Hexes & vexes. Another of my ideas involves Drake and most of his immediate family being de-aged and having to relearn a great deal so I can show Special Agents Mallard and McQuack in action and I have several other twists working in this arc as well but that won't materialise for a while yet.
I am also working on two AU ideas with the brainstorming help of my friend Lady Mallard. One is a parody of the James Bond movies and the super spy genre in general tentively called 00Duck and the other is an AU that is more of a What if scenario involving Morgana Macabre and her family currently titled Meant to Be and showing a different origin story for both Drake Mallard, Darkwing and his relationships with the other characters in the series.
the Wedding will (hopfully) take place on November 14th and we all know that DW and CO. can't have down time without SOMETHING weird happening to them LOL W
For the villains I have scheduled:
Grounding Elmo (A Negaduck and Megavolt fic that intro's new villains and happens simultaniously with the hero fic Trials & Tribulations)Complete
Velvet Ties (this happens at the same time as Grounding Elmo and Kings and Pawns and features Quackerjack and an Original Character)Complete
Kings and Pawns ( this is a Liquidator Fic that happens right around Velvet Ties and Grounding Elmo and I am hoping to really explore Bud Flood as well as Licky here)Complete
Six of One and half-a-Dozen of the Other (This fic deals with the return of Taurus Bulba and his team of villians which he plans to use to distroy both the Justice Ducks and the Fearsome Five and I hope to really showcase both Negaduck and Darkwing as well as their respective teams while writing my original characters well. Its ambitious for me to write a plot which basically has 18 plus characters all doing things but it should be quite a ride so buckle up and hang on for this thrill a minute adventure, otherwise you might not find out how it all turns out!)
(granted, I have what...16 plus fics planned and have been posting for almost 2 years now and am still not finished, but that doesn't mean there isn't room for more)
I hope this helps people follow my timeline and I will again adjust this as as I get these posted
Zootopia 2 Learning Curve is my experiment in writing a more complex plot and world building so I hope it's a good read even though it's FAR newer than DW and company and that people who haven't seen the movie Zootopia/ Zootropolis will enjoy the story and possibly watch the DVD so as to become fans of this terrific movie and it's universe
Your friend with NO life LOL
