Update 2/15/14

Falling outside the Loop

Want to know a little about me (?), well let me explain that I am an old guy, older than the mountains and more ancient than the waters and streams that pay homage at their foot. Which should explain that I ain’t gonna tell ya how old I am.

Still, I will say is that I was first bitten with the bug of storytelling after watching the inspiring tv series Firefly. And so, I was stunned to find that it was a show no longer viewable on current television at the time. I only became aware of its perfection after the fact. Anyway….. this led me to want to continue its adventures.

Now understand, that although I like to create new story works (for many & alternate movie and tv shows) I am no writer, and I don’t consider myself as such. But I do like to create, and I do so with the hope of impunity. I do know that my writing is riddled with flaws and errors; I make no beef about that, still I enjoy creating new ideas and new concepts for the characters that entertain us. My idea is that our love of adventure an learning helps maintain our spirit and launches us into a dimension of new expressive thought.

Anyway, so that’s a bit about me. By my coming here and posting what is in my imagination I hope to make friends and create little “what if” ideas in people’s brains. I am inspired by many things, a beautiful sunrise or sunset, the human condition, and my love, my wife and my cohort. My thanks to you for visiting my profile, Z.

Fresh Update 2/21/14

Hello profile readers (I read writer profiles myself), just putting up an extended update to the one posted above. It has been mentioned several times, through reviews and the like, that my stories are different, unusual or unconventional. That is done purposely, and, although I know that not all folk will find my story arcs interesting or worth a read, still, there is a driving force in me that screams when a story work wants to be told……..Sometimes I can ignore this impulse….and then other times, I cannot. They hound me to the point where I must sit down and type them out.

Now, that may sound as if I don’t like creating works of fiction, not true, I really enjoy it, however, it does chew up a bit of time and the lawn, or maintenance around the house suffers. Still, like I’ve said, the story wants to get out, convincing me that it should be told. Also, it works as an outlet for me at times.

Anyhoo...I always keep a running list of ideas and new scenarios jotted down in a notebook, or just in my head. I always try to create works (although odd), that have a ring of truth about them, or a bit of canon. I know that sounds strange being that most of my stories are about zombies, or space adventures, magical artifacts or just science-fiction in general, still these are my interest and what I like to envision. Listed below are some ideas that may show up in future posts……

Things on my list that are currently in line to be posted on this site are, a second chapter to my Game of Thrones story work “A King Disarmed” and a new story work “Conan & the Dark Winged Beast”. There are others too on the list (and of course current updates to existing stories), but these are the two that are really pushing on me right now. My better half and I are really getting into GoT, and the original stories and manuscripts of Robert E. Howard’s Conan series have not been presented with justice in the movies or any other media besides the old paperback novels, JMO.

Anyway….. I’m looking to post more stories during the year, and continue those posted now (as time allows) and I want to thank all of the readers that submit reviews and critiques, they are very helpful. Now a quote, or near quote……Can you tell me where it’s from?

If landing on the moon wasn’t dramatic enough for them, then why shouldn’t landing on it be?”

I really enjoy bold statements as such; there is so much heart & emotion in them. Z

Things that inspire me: Firefly, The Walking Dead, Riddick, The Hunger Games, FaceOff, Frank Frazetta, Boris & Julie, Mark S. & Michael H…..just my short list.

The Way of Serenity reviews
Story arc takes place 2 years after Serenity (the BDM) and we find that Wash & Book did not die at that time. With the Shepherd's knowledgeable background, he knew how the Alliance would operate. Sending an Operative was no surprise to him, so he was prepared. UA abounds, and the story changes,Z.

Expelled reviews
Expelled is an ever progressing story-line following in the wake of the tv series and just like the show, characters change and so does the momentum of this work. I hope that fic-readers give it a try. Story involves AU & OC. I thank the creators of this work for allowing me to express alternate ideas, Z

Defiance of the Many: 1 reviews
Defiance of the Many is a continuing story arc that I hope will be viewed in the direction of its format. The drama, humor and intrigue are parts that I hope are evident. Being a fan of the series I wanted to dig a little deeper into the psychology of the characters. Express a dimension that I'm sure the creators are sure to display, Thanks, Z.

BJO reviews
A fellow from Mal's past comes to bay him a reunion of sorts. The Captain of Serenity isn't hard to find, neither is he hard to lure into situations of altercation. Captain Reynolds is a man that lives in the present, but will never forget his past, why, because he is haunted by it.

Cleaver of Justice reviews
Satire of the tv-series Game of Thrones…. Strictly tongue-in-cheek and only the first of a few short chapters (about 2). Hope you like and see the sport of this creation, Z

A Man's Spaceship is his Castle reviews
What can I say...first chapter engages the relationship between Castle and Beckett, and eludes to a mysterious crime that tickles (both) their fancy? I've decided to go pretty deep with this, so any reader should be familiar with the actors, and their past work, as well as the storyline of Castle. My thanks go out to all those who read, and come back for seconds, my humble regards,

An old bounty hunter with a new crew attempts to discover the location of a past adversary (Riddick). What will happen if he finds him? Riddick is familiar with the chase and being hunted, thing is, who is hunting who? Story scenario is a continuation a few months after Riddick 3.

Warehouse 13: 1 Case of the Mona Me'sa reviews
New story arc going up….Warehouse 13. I've always enjoyed this show and am looking forward to the upcoming season. This is just a two or three chapter story arc….but it could extend beyond. Story involves musical instruments, Sirens, Mermaids, and maybe the jealousies of Myka Bering & Steven Jinks. Some Claudia/Pete love-interest may be perused?

Road Kill reviews
Digging deeper into Serenity. The Crew find themselves in a familiar yet different predicament. Hi-jinx ensure, story precedes "War Stories" in the FF universe. Discovering Jayne as you've never seen him before. Final chapter, arc 10 is up and running...Z

HU (Hypothetical Universe) explores Merle's home life abuse, unlawful business dealings, prison past, and more. Also the story is peppered with characters from the show along the way.

The Good, the Bad, the Jayne reviews
AU story of what could have happened if Jayne had actually left Serenity and became Captain of his own vessel. Although Jayne does appear in several chapters, the story arc is more about Serenity's crew in the wake of the mercenary's absence. And attempts to show, admittedly or not, how Malcolm Reynolds needs the big guy. Lighthearted ending I hope...

Prometheus Aftermath reviews
Prometheus : Aftermath, Afterlife, and Afterquest are continuing story arcs based on the movie. Although I'll do my best to stay within canon, there may be some twists and turns and a few liberties taken here and there. My apologies if they don't fit well. I will focus on trying to keep things believable, story wise. Hope you enjoy, Z PS: thanks for excusing the errors!
