Author has written 9 stories for Cats.
Well what can I put in here, hmm?
I recently was given a copy of the 1998 CATS DVD and I simply fell in love with the story, the characters and the world that Andrew Lloyd Webber has created.
I'm new at writing and I am slowly developing as I go. I tend to get a overall plotline in my head and then write the content from the hip.
Unlike a lot of the authors I'm not in school and I haven't been for a long long time.
I've served 22 years now in the military and have kids the ages of some of my favorite authors here.
I love to read and the talent I see here is incredible.
Oh. I'm now on Twitter: @danielryan18
Don't expect too much. I've only just worked out how to use Facebook for something except playing poker so Twitter may take me a while.
Can I keep it - Jemmy encounters a pollicle pup which turns her life upside down. My first story and I might end up doing a continuation of it.
The Cook Out - My attempt at a dark story. I couldn't continue with this after the first chapter. I decided after I finished the first one that it didn't suit my writing style. If anyone wants to continue with it then please feel free. Just send me a PM so I can see what you end up doing with it.
Where did I come from - My take on Jerrie's origins and how he became a jellicle. I like this one.
Aftermath - My best story to date (IMHO). I really really like the way this one worked out. Follows on directly after the end of the movie.
My Life - Teasers story as she grows up. Now finished and includes a song I thought fitted the mood of the story in chapter 3.
Struggles - One of the Jellicles struggles with life, responibility and being a father. Contains suicidal thoughts.
Journeys - Continuing the story from Can I keep it. Will contain a lot of OC's.
Distraction - A short drabble about Tugger. Contains humour, well I think it's funny at least.
Cause and Effect - What should be a short multi-chapter story about the origins of Macavity.
I've also started to use my first OC's. Based on my own cats feel free to use them if you want.
Jemma/Gemma - a black cat with a white blaze on her chest. Very quiet and timid but willing to play and sing.
Jet - Think about a cross between Pounce and Munk. Loves his sister (not half as much now he's been fixed. Wasn't that a shock to us when we got the two of them...) and doesn't like intruders. Willing to play at the drop of a hat. Is pure black but wears a red collar and is belled. Is absolutely nuts about the rain. Can't get enough of it.
Both cats at the moment are about 14 months old and they were born in a shed in the country so I guess you could call them barn cats.
I've also got another couple others that I'm working with now as well.
Dominica - A red and black striped Mane Coon. Daughter of Bombs and Tugger. Hottest thing on two legs or four and knows it. About the same size as Jemima in the movie.
Toby - A pollicle reborn as a Jellicle. White with a grey crown and gray patches along his haunches. Similar attitude to his grandfather Munkunstrap. Very responsible but also very willing to have fun. I've got his parents as Jemima and Misto.
Christo - A small brown and black mottled Tom. Born blind but had his hearing enhanced by Misto until it had sonar like qualities similar to bats. Great fun little kitten. Parents as I see it are Vic and Plato (open to change depending on the story.)
Like I said. Feel free to use my OC's in any stories out there. Just PM me and let me know so I can have a read too.
Seeing as it seems to be the in thing on the site to put you your favorite pairings.
Jem and Misto
Vic and Plato
Dem and Munk
Tugger and Bombs
Jelly and Asparagus
Alonzo and Cass
Admentus and Etcetera
Electra and Pounce
Jenny and Skimble.
Mungo and Teaser are mates.
Cori and Tanto are both siblings and mates (rules are different for the mystic twins)
Vic and Misto are siblings.
I'm also partial to Tanto and Tugger as mates (opposites attract)
Dem Munk = Teaser and Jemima (who is Mac's blood daughter).
Gus OC = Father of Asparagus
Duet many different queens = Father of Grizabella, Macavity, Munk, Alonzo, Tugger in order of birth.
Jelly Asparagus = Pounce, Tumble.
Jenny Skimble = Etcy and Plato.
Bustopher Grizabella = Misto and Vic.
Adoptee's or unknown parents.
Cori and Tanto
Dem and Bombs
Oh and just for the record.
I believe the Jellicles are cats that can change their shapes to appear as normal house cats to most ppl and the hybrid humaniods that they use on the stage and movie. I am expanding on this in one of my stories.
Also the ability to be reborn is not restricted to the Jellicle cats. The soul can end up in any of the great tribes, even a human.
