Greetings and salutations, reader of this page...
[This is my announcement space]
Sorry for being gone so long, random people! Hopefully updates will come more quickly now--for all my stories.
Main story, A M.A.D. Heir: Chapter 15 is up (woot!).
Night Terrors: Chapter 3 has been completed.
I have a third story! A Certain Military Academy: Due to reader enthusiasm, this will continue. Second chapter is up.
[End announcement space]
First off, I am not Canadian...don't ask me why it says that, but that's how it's going to stay (I'm actually a North Korean national born to parents from Honduras and Chad, hence the name).
um...let's see...I like reading, physics, dark chocolate, cooking, and intelligent conversation. My favorite drink is energy Vitamin water (none of that 0-cal crap).
I dislike bad grammar and words/phrases that have no place in the English (damn red squiggly underline) language (e.g. irregardless, ain't, all of the sudden, yolo), although I have trouble with the "i before e" rule, so whatever.
I hate ignoramuses and reverse-racism (or whatever you want to call it): I get it, your people were slaughtered/raped/pillaged by white people hundreds of years ago. I am not racist, just a misanthrope.
Shows I like: Jackie Chan Adventures (obviously), NOVA, the first few seasons of Sliders (before they knocked off all of the MCs), Doctor Who (most of it, anyways), Avatar the Last Airbender (the movie messed up all the names though, like wtf?), Alias, Friends, Family Guy, Smallville, a bunch of other random stuff, and of course, the best show ever, The Boondocks (Aaron Mcgruder is a genius).
Stuff I read: Pretty much any fiction novel; Narnia, Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Hobbit (no, I have not seen the movie), The Lake House&Where the Wind Blows (by James Patterson, the adult/better version of the maximum ride series), The Golden Compass (just read it), Dean Koontz, Jonathan Kellerman, anything that catches my eye, scientific articles, and many manga/manwha/webtoons (Magician, Noblesse, To Aru Kagaku no Choudenjibou, Kubera, etc.).
Favorite characters and etc.: Iroh&Toph (avatar), Jade (JCA), Neil Degrass Tyson, Gimli (dwarves, bitch!), that red-haired guy from Noblesse, Iremi (magician), Professor Maximilian Arturo (sliders), Chandler Bing, and anyone who is badass AND has a badass personality (like Clint Eastwood).
If you liked my story (or the idea, not the execution), check out some of these other authors and their stories.
Project Dark Jade:
A mutual project carried out by Eduard Kassel and Nocturne no Kitsune. It turns out they have many similar interests and dissatisfactions. In one case this resulted in them working together to address a depressing vacuum in the Jackie Chan Adventures Archives. Namely stories in which the show’s leading little lady either strays or is press ganged unto the dark side.
"Queen of All Oni"(Running): Eduard Kassel’s contribution diverges at the beginning of the Shadow Khan arc. Rather than Daolon Wong's spell reawakening the ancient ruler of the Shadow Khan, he revives a newer evil. The Queen of the Shadow Khan has risen again, and the hunt for the masks is on. Not only must Jackie and Torhu save the world they must save Jade from the darkness that engulfs her, if they can.
"Queen of Shadows"(Running): Nocturne no Kitsune has a rather different, but highly enjoyable approach in mind. When Jade attacked the Shendu possessed Jackie she made him slash a page with ink, setting the course of history into chaos. She awakens to find herself a powerful ruler in ancient Japan with mighty armies at her disposal. The armies being the tribes of Shadow Khan and herself the dreaded Queen of Shadows. Can she mend the damage done to history and return to her proper self and time. Will she survive the forces of Light and rivals in Darkness long enough to even try?
"Jade Dragon"(Planning): No blue skin here, we are not horses of a single trick. In this collaboration a magic mirror sends Jade on a strange but very familiar journey. For now we will leave it at that.
"When I Grow up"(Complete): Does knowing the future mean you can change it? Or is fate the one thing not even the indomitable Jade Chan can overcome?
"A Shadow of the Titans"(Running): Originally conceived by Nocturne no Kitsune it has become a collaboration between him and Eduard Kassel. A sweeping lengthy saga crafted over much of 2009 in secret, the prologue was written months ago by Nocturne. The hiatus has delayed the launch leaving Kassel with the notes and plot outlines but now that Nocturne has given his blessing this project can proceed:
An accident during a banishing spell sends Jade clear to another world, but the intervention of a mysterious entity complicates her problems. Once more the Queen of the Shadowkhan Jae must survive the world of the Teen Titans where super heroes and villains clash in seemingly endless struggles of good and evil. An not only that she must try and find a way to return, or will this world's promises sway her from that course? Expected to be epic in length, and hopefully epic in other ways.
"Beyond my Abilities"(Development & Planning): A Delve into how power corrupts, and the desire for power corrupts absolutely. Once all the adventures are over and life has calmed down, Jade laments the loss of her exciting lifestyle. But the worse is yet to come, as she starts to feel ignored and useless. Her Uncles are seeming to drift away from her, and deny her the things she earned on her exploits like Training in the Martial arts with Jackie, or watching as Uncle brews another spell. Thinking that she is being dragged down into obscurity, Jade desperately attempts to find a way to add that exceptional aspect to her life again.
And she gets exactly what she wants, when she discovers a small shop with no name. But is the asking price for this stores special products more then What Jade is willing to pay? Status: Concept Stages
"Roommate"(Running): ppH's entry begins at the start of season 2. When Jade gets between Valmont and Shendu. Things are turned upside down.
Now stuck with the bad guys and with a 900 year old dragon in her head. Will Jade find her way back into the light?.
Or will Shendu drag her down into the darkness?.
"The Blue Knight and The Dark Queen"(Complete): D. J. Scales comes onto the scene with a new take on the concept. In this tale the King revives the Queen during the faithful meeting on the runway. With two members of dark royalty dedicated to the quest the situation is grim for our remaining heroes. Now, with the balance between good and evil disrupted even more than usual Uncle summons new champions to aid in their struggle. The Dark Forces may have regained a Queen but the forces of good have gained a Blue Knight and the enchanted sword Caliburn to their cause. Crossover with Sonic and The Black Knight.
"The Blue Knight and the Dark Queen: The Immortal Relics": The sequel.
"Queen's Ascension"(Running): What if when the 9 Oni Masks broke, something different happened than the generals being revived? What If Jade was given the chance to once again be the ShadowKhan Queen? A new spin on the return of the Queen; the motives especially are intriguing in this budding tale. Note: This story rearranges the continuity in regards to the seasons.
Demon Sorceress of Fire"(Running): Jade has earned her place as a Demon Sorcerer by slaying the previous holder of the title. Compelled by her 'brothers and sisters', she will now restore the power of the Dark Hand, free the Demon Sorcerers to rebuild their kingdoms anew, all while trying to stop the slow merging of her soul with Shendu and retain her humanity.
"Her Shadowed Realm"(Running): CryptIXeeper introduces himself into the DJP with this particular story. In one reality, Jade turned evil. She betrayed the very family and friends she had fought alongside and cared about for power. However, said family and friends succeeded in banishing her to the Shadow Realm, a dimension bridging all others together with shadow. In the other, Jade is but an innocent girl with an average life and an average family. What happens with this evil Jade, taken to calling herself 'Yu' finds a way to enter her world and tempt the innocent jade towards the dark side? Find out as we begin a journey down the path of corruption, in the world of Yu-Gi-Oh! A Jackie Chan Adventures and Yu-Gi-Oh! Crossover
"影Kage"(Running): Longtime fan Chaotic9 enters the ranks wit this story. Sometimes even the heroes greatest victory can be tainted. And that cost Jade her place in her Universe. Now in another Universe watched by a place called Kandrakar and its Guardians, with some of the power she once possessed, Jade will try to find a way home, by any means necessary. But can she prevail in an Universe where Light seems to always beat Darkness?
"A MAD Heir"(Running): Dr. Claw is tired of his loyal yet hopelessly inept flunkies, and decides to try something new. I rated it T because there will most likely be death and some psychological stuff in here, minimal cursing. The first chapter is more like an intro. Inspector Gadget Crossover.
D. J. Scales: This writer originally had an idea he wanted to suggest, but in the process found his own creativity taking hold of the idea. While new to the Dark Jade idea he is no stranger to the JCA fandom in his writing on this site.
PPH: The new rookie on the block. Who merely hopes people enjoy his stories.
Nocturne no Kitsune: The first one past the post with a story for this Project. He also conceived Jade Dragon and the Crossover Project. Real life has forced him into a hiatus of indefinite length on some stories, but the signs seem hopeful right now.
Eduard Kassel: Founder of Project Dark Jade, though it was only made real through the encouragement and input of Nocturne no Kitsune.
Zim'smostloyalservant: The stalwart beta that has worked with Nocturne and Kassel on their PDJ stories and more. An invaluable member of the PDJ team.
DigitalHazard: Rookie writer, just now posted the beginning of his first story
MEMBER X: A new writer that has submitted a story idea and been approved. Wishes to remain anonymous until the story is ready to be posted.
Mengskhunter: Tired of the Adventure boards, he found the Dark Jade Project and wanted to follow their example and create a quality story.
CryptIXeeper: Rookie writer, found Project Dark Jade when he decided to reminisce with Jackie Chan Adventures on fanfiction.
Chaotic9: Fan of Project Dark Jade for a long time that decided to create his own story for the project. Favorite JCA episode: Queen of the Shadowkhan
Vladimir Zhivanevskaya (Hey, this is me!) Wanted to write a fanfiction, but had no ideas. Found the Story adoption thread in the PDJ forum and was inspired to write out an idea thought up by an imaginative contributor.
Have a Dark Jade idea? Send it to Eduard Kassel and you could join the Project as well! Spread the word.
Project Dark Jade now has a forum.
Q & A: This thread is for asking questions you don't mind being shown to the public. The rules for PDJ are also posted here.
Dark Jade Story Idea Adoption Thread: Lately people have been sending ideas they think have potential, but for whatever reason can't write them themselves. So this thread is the PDJ orphanage where these ideas go until someone can adopt them. We already have ideas posted, so check them out if you are interested or just curious.
Dark Jade Author Seeks Beta Thread: This thread is for fans that are inclined to beta read to touch bases with Dark Jade writers looking for betas.
I might add more later but I don't really feel like it, and you don't really care so...yeah.
