Author has written 1 story for Loonatics Unleashed.
Hey everyone! In the off-chance, you're actually one of the ones reading my profile, enjoy the words I'm leaving here!
Anyway, it's been a pretty long time since I've done anything with this account. Over a year at least. I know... I've been really busy lately. Since I've last been on here, I've graduated from college and am about to start on my career as a high school teacher. So I can't promise I'll have regular updates anymore. But, I do have every intention of getting back to this very soon.
In fact, I plan on a total re-write of the story. After so much time, I've looked back at a lot of my earlier chapters and I find them to be unnecessarily wordy and awkwardly constructed at places. Aside from editing and fixing what's written, I plan on dividing the story into smaller segments to make it easier to read and more focused. When will I have this done? It's hard to say. I've already revised and rewritten the first few segments, but it's hard to say what the plan right now is. I'll list some stuff and ideas below:
This is where I will post the current status of my story, "The Comet Cometh Revisited". The numbers are a rough estimate.
UPDATE (12/28/15): Here's how the published chapters may potentially be divided:
1. Prologue --> will stay as one prologue. Little re-writing needed. (1/1 REVISED!)
2. Ch.1 - Morning at HQ --> will be divided into 4 segments. Lots of re-writing. (4/4 REVISED...)
3. Ch. 2 - The Fans --> will be divided into 4 segments. Lots of re-writing. (0/4 REVISED...)
4. Ch. 3 - The Festival (pt. 1) --> will be tentatively divided into 3 segments. May change...
5. Ch. 4 - The Festival (pt. 2) --> will be tentatively divided into 5 segments. May change...
6. Ch. 5 - The Stuntman (pt. 1) --> will be divided into about 5 segments
7. Ch. 6 - The Stuntman (pt. 2) --> will be divided into about 5 segments
Additionally, to better group the segments together, many of these segments will likely be collected together into individual "books" that tell parts of the entire over-arching story. If this is the case, then it's likely that each book will be its own story. Here's how it may be put together:
Book One: The Festival (all segments for the first 5 chapters listed above. 18 total chapters expected.)Book Two: The Stuntman (All of Ace's backstory)Book Three: The Cheerleader (All of Lexi's backstory)Book Four: The Narcissist (All of Duck's backstory)Book Five: The Genius (All of Tech's backstory)Book Six: The Fighter (All of Slam's backstory)Book Seven: The Dreamer (All of Rev's backstory)Book Eight: The Team As for all unfinished material for the original story, I'm unsure if I want to update it all on the original story or if I just want to wait until the revised versions catch up. Here's the current progress (little as it may be...)
CHAPTER 8: "The Stuntman (pt.3)"
detailed outline complete! No word count estimate as of yet...
First draft: 35%
Target release date: Unknown

I also like anime! In fact, I'd go so far as to say that anime is the strongest influence for my writing style. My favorite anime by far is Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (It's absolutely amazing and you should go watch it. Like, right now. I'm serious, like go out right now and get it...don't worry I'll wait...) Other anime I've seen and liked include: Fullmetal Alchemist (original), Soul Eater, Digimon Adventure (they turned it into such a kiddie show here in America...), Death Note, Naruto, Naruto Shippuden, Durarara, Kekkaishi, Eden of the East, Elfen Lied, and Neon Genesis Evangelion.
