Well I suppose this profile needs an update... look at all the dust around here! Certainly brings back memories to step foot in here once again. I haven't done much writing during my higher education years, so the stuff posted here is REALLY old, and I'll admit, rather terrible... if I had a time machine, I'd use it to go back and kick my high school aged self for grammar, typos, and stupidity... then use the time machine to save the twinkies.
Nostalgic ramblings aside, I do hope to pop in here more often, both to read and to write. I started updating my old stories from years past posted here, correcting grammar, spelling, re-doing things a little bit better, but I also hope to be writing anew, for there have been SO many good new stories and characters made over the years that I would love to write fanfics for.
On a more personal note, should you care to know a little bit more about me, (and if you don't care to, then just stop reading now that you've gotten through the writing section above, or you could just torture yourself and keep reading, you sado-masochist.), then you may want to know the following basic information.
Pen Name: Zepuka
In the Works
Born For This (Alvin & The Chipmunks)
Disconnection (Wreck-It Ralph)
12/30/13: I've been working on cleanning up the first half of this series (and am keeping each chapter time-stamped so everyone can tell if they've read the latest version or not). These changes are mostly minor, such as grammatical fixes, sentence clean up to make it flow better and easier to read, etc... In a couple of places I've expanded the scene a little, but still only in a minor fashion. I'm hoping to get some new chapters up soon, but I don't want to start posting again until I have some chapter buffer, so that I can update consistently. I also have a bunch of bonus material planned, sort of 'off camera' scenes with the characters as well as extra 'canon' scenes (like the chapters "The Muffin Man" and "Of Babes and Babies").
8/17/13: I know, I know... I haven't updated this story in FOREVER... I quite frankly just don't have the motivation to do so right now, getting caught up in the planning of my other fanfics... but I promise I haven't forgotten this and I WILL finish it someday... I've even made a policy for myself that I won't be allowed to post chapters for my new works without posting at least one chapter for this one so I can get it done! However I get the feeling that when I start doing that, I'll get back into the groove of wanting to write this one and it'll propel itself from there. Besides, when you have OCs like Jake and Kitty just BEGGING to get more air-time... I can't stay dormant with them for too long!
7/7/13: Phase II is still in the planning phase, as I haven't had a good chunk of time to just sit down and plan it all out, plus I've had a bit of writer's block anyway... I'm currently working on another bonus level, or 'Intermission' if you will, since it takes place between Phase I and Phase II. Also, before I post any chapters for Phase II, I plan on doing a bit of maintenance in Phase I, fixing grammar and punctuation, and adding my new section "Cameos and Cheat Codes", which will also feature in Phase II when I do publish it. This section will be a sort of 'footnotes' section that will list the cameos that appeared in the chapter, and 'cheat codes', which could range anywhere from drawing attention to certain parts in the chapter that will be important later on, to random fun facts that didn't make it into the story canon, etc...
Katniss: Guardian of Freedom (Hunger Games x Rise of the Guardians)
8/17/13: I have my rough outline!!!! I've even got a couple of scenes and original characters starting to take shape, but it'll still be awhile yet before I have anything post-worthy. Major reason being because I don't want to mess this up, and thus I want to research this thoroughly. I'm in the process of re-reading The Hunger Games trilogy (Since I just got my own copy of the books in the mail last Saturday; whee!!! Already in part 3 of Catching Fire; such good books!) and want to check out the books that inspired the movie Rise of the Guardians. Not sure how long that part with take, but hopefully they'll be short since they're children's books and all.
7/7/13: Due to the overwhelming amount of positive feedback, I have decided that I WILL continue this at some point, however at the current time, I do not have the bandwidth to brainstorm this right now, let alone get around to any actual writing... The prologue just about sums up all the ideas I had for the crossover at the time, and I figured I'd stop and see if it was worth pursuing before I spent anymore time thinking about it... So yeah, the problem is that I just haven't had any time to do that extra thinking on it and come up with a story... I'm sorry, that means this story may be on hold for quite awhile...
My True Feelings (Jimmy Neutron)
A Household I.Q. of 782 (Jimmy Neutron)
8/17/13: I've discovered that I simply can not handle 3 stories all on my plate at once, and since I already have 2 currently running stories, I decided to put this idea on the back-burner, finishing at least one of my other stories up first before I continue down this route.
7/7/13: This isn't actually posted yet, but I plan on posting it soon, once I get another chapter or two written, and the roughs cleaned up and finalized. For those interested in the premise:
I've been fascinated with the story-telling style used by the writers of the show "Once Upon A Time", and I really wanted to try it out sometime. I recently found my old copies of the Jimmy Neutron show episodes while re-organizing my hard drive, and have been re-obsessed with this fandom ever since! (As evidenced by my recent posts of "Tech Support" and "My True Feelings") So... why not combine the two? This drama will focus on the life of Cindy Vortex, who is now Cindy Neutron at 28 years of age. As evidenced by the title, it revolves around her family life, which is so much more complicated than the average family life, having that much I.Q. crammed under one roof. In the same manner that "Once Upon A Time" takes the canon we all know and love and 'connects the dots' between those known events and the events that are happening further down the line, I will be doing the same in the JN universe. Starting around the point of the end of "Lady Sings the News", I will be using parallel plot lines to both tell what's going on 'now' in the life of grown-up Cindy, and the various events that led up to it through out her teenage years. Also along the lines of the "One Upon A Time" style, the POV will not be limited to Cindy, even though she will be considered the main character.
If any of you want a sneak preview of this, you can check it out on IDOJ forums (you can always create an account if you don't have one there already)
Also, my two JN fanfics I've already made ("Tech Support" and "My True Feelings") will be woven into the canon for this story, so if you wanna check those out as another 'sneak preview', feel free ;)
