Title: Gulliver's Pimpline...
Post by: Gulliver63 on March 08, 2013, 07:50:18 PM
Here's my first official pimp alert: I am releasing my Neutral story, "Be It Ever So Neutral" very shortly. I've been wanting to get the Neutrals into a story forever. I actually had this thing done a year ago, but my flashdrive decided to croak on me. The story involves a young Neutral man named Neffan, and how the PE gang throw a monkeywrench into his world. The story is canon to the show, and includes lots of silliness from Bender.

Also, I am still at work on more for my fancomic "Incredible Shrinking Bureaucrat," and hope to have a few more pages up soon.

Also also, say hello to my little Bender Pimp avatar, who no doubt has a bottle of Courvoisier and some Barry White playing in the background. Pimp on, Bender!

I did a sketch of Bender and Amy a long time ago dressed 1940's style...Bender had a zoot suit on. I'll have to do something with that someday.

I love the hover-AMC Pacer

I'm so glad someone noticed that. When I was trying to get my first car in the summer of 1983, I almost snagged a yellow Pacer, but the deal fell through. I ended up with another AMC though, a '76 Hornet that I really liked. I matched her up with this car because of her nerd status - it was either that, or a Gremlin, or a Vega or something similar. I still love the way that Morgan has to be belted in for her car trips.

I just released "The Promised Land" here at Madhouse...feel free to let me know what you think. I actually had this story on my flashdrive for a year before releasing it. It was an attempt to explore a highly advanced cyclops race, and the original title was going to be "Planet of the Cyclopes."
Title: Re: Gulliver's Pimpline...
Post by: Gulliver63 on May 04, 2013, 12:27:45 AM
I just finished the "Kanamit Objects" rough draft; I changed the working title to "To Serve Amy." You guys are going to laugh when you see the cover.
Title: Re: Gulliver's Pimpline...
Post by: Red_Line on May 04, 2013, 03:29:28 AM
re "The Promised Land" I thought it was pretty good.    I liked the idea that two eyed creatures were unable to speak and Fry and Amy having to "suffer in silence", and of course Bender just removing one of his eye tubes and he's good to go -  (Hey man, it ain't like that). :crylol:  And Fry just acting like you'd expect a critter in a cage to do was pretty funny - he was spot on there.

I hope you'll forgive me if I say that the ending felt a little deus ex machina to me.  I felt kind of let down when, after all that build up, they just let let them go.  But I also realize the problem when you drop them into a boiling pot of political intrigue - your only other way out is about a hundred thousand words thataway.  :smirk:   Since you aren't going the Magnum Opus route with it, it works well enough.

Also, minor technical nit - Leela says "But how will I ever find you people? ... ", except they're letting her pilot her ship away from their planet on her own, apparently without any interference; she'd know their exact location the moment they got into orbit and went to figure out which way home was.  :confused:
Title: Re: Gulliver's Pimpline...
Post by: Gulliver63 on May 04, 2013, 12:27:03 PM
You brought up a good point with that one...I have to admit that I had to look up deus ex machina in wiki ::chuckles:: . The story is actually much better than it started out...it began life as a cheap rip-off of "Planet of the Apes." I even left in the gag with Amy yelling at the cyclops woman. As the story progressed, it sort of got a bit better than those beginnings. The bit with Fry and Amy wearing the sunglasses started as a cartoon gag at dA http://gulliver63.deviantart.com/gallery/?offset=144#/art/Escape-from-the-Planet-of-Cyclopes-279049374?q=gallery%3Agulliver63%2F11855251&qo=155&_sid=13596c13 . On top of some errors in the story, I also spotted a couple of small things I need to address on the cover. I do appreciate the input - it shows me the way to improvement.:)

I also need to note that my original intention was to have the remains of Neeva found on a planet while the bunch was still there, but that was kind of like letting all the air out of the tire...Neeva being alive kept things going, and I think made for a more interesting story.

Yeah, baby..."To Serve Amy" is looking really good the way Tim set it up - I'm impressed. Let me know what you think. And I've got other projects cooking in the oven; the Morgan Proctor interview is almost done, and Kaspired might chip in on some artwork for it. This project also spawned off a thing called The Morgan Chronicles, where we get to see a teenage Morgan spend part of her youth on Mars. Again, I'm open for comments, ideas...

Really liked your To Serve Amy fanfic!   Was really funny.   Nothing like possiblities of getting eaten to get a good yarn going.

I wrote a fanfic like that myself.   It's called The Road To Fanzipar where they almost get eaten by the inhabinants there.   

Anyway, I look forward to seeing more of your works!

Thanks! I was almost worried that the humor in that one would be too tacky, and too adult. I purposely tried to give Bender a little more air time in this one, as he typically gets shoved to the background in my stories. Having the old Twilight Zone episode parallel the story was also tons of fun.

Post by: Gulliver63 on June 05, 2013, 09:52:49 AM
Thanks! I'm glad you liked it. I was influenced a bit by interviews of Admiral Hyman Rickover and Harry S. Truman. Bits of my own life seeped into the story - I used to call my own kid my 'Stubborn Leo Girl' - I originally had Morgan being a Cancer, and pushed up her birthday a bit. I mentioned her utter dislike for the Leo Wong statue in my story "The Last Turanga 2: Going Native" a few years back, and that she'd been living in a condo on Mars. It's that gawd-awful statue with the cowboy hat and the placard that reads, "How Much You Want For That."

I would have liked to have done this same thing for my other favorite character Free Waterfall Junior, but he was eaten. "Meat is murder, man!" :)

I agree...didn't Nora Dunn do such a great job with her? "Bureaucrat Conrad: if you complete your death transaction..." When I dump out the recycle bin on my laptop, you hear that famous "Dirty boy - dirty, dirty dirty!" My friend at work Robert Stewart loves that "Locker check!" bit. I still would have liked to have seen one more full episode; I like the idea of her going to the PE gang for help after being replaced by a robot.

I'm in the process of writing the Morgan Chronicles, and I may try to slide him in there. I just love impersonating the guy - "Meat is murder, man!" I also love him on the tv interview with his fingers in his ears saying, "Shut up, shut up, shut up..." The scene where he talked about the lion eating tofu actually ticked my daughter off.  :)

So how did everyone like "Under the Dome?" I've already fired up the laptop and started exploring how the Planet Express gang might handle a similar situation. It's called "The Perfect Dome," and it's about a dome that's placed over the PE Building by the Bureaucracy after Farnsworth refuses to pay his property taxes. I'll have to watch the show some more to see if I can steal (steal - now there's a harsh word) borrow any ideas.

Thanks! That was actually a quickie with a generic Corel background and lettering. The colors were Copic Cocoa Brown for the jammies, and Prismacolor Taupe for her belly.

@ Marloc. I love that quote - especially the "Oh, I'm getting to that" part.

The original concept was to have her there in her jammies and title it, "Sparkles the Human." I also thought about when she got pinned to the wall with the dart and calling it, "Wild Human on the Loose!"

Post by: Gulliver63 on July 03, 2013, 10:49:19 PM
@ Marloc. I've been slowly chipping away at the Morgan Chronicles, and decided to take your advice and use Free Waterfall Junior. You guys get to see a sneak peek of the young Morgan story...very much still in progress. Let me know what you think. In the story, a 16 year old Morgan has befriended a native Martian girl named Jing.

The next day found Morgan looking for another adventure. She took her flybike into town, and one of Jing's buddies in the coffee shop told her that she was ice fishing on a nearby canal.
   As Morgan pulled up on her bike, she spotted her friend arguing with a man out on the ice. Morgan walked up to see what the problem was.
   "What's going on here?"
   "Will you tell this Earther squalakonk to get moving off of my fishing spot?"
   Morgan told the man, "She does fish here...she just needs you to move over."
   The young man tossed his long hair aside and turned to face Morgan. "I'm trying to protect the planet, man. This young woman and her friends are fishing the slerng fish to extinction. Someone has got to stand up for it - it's one of God's majestic creatures."
   "You're not from here are you?" Morgan asked.
   "He's a podunka Earther...no offense, Morgan."
   Morgan held up her hand to quiet Jing down. "You need to do your research, mister..."
   "Waterfall...I'm Free Waterfall Junior."
   "Mister Waterfall. First off, the slerng fish was created in a lab to be bred here on Mars, so it hardly counts as one of 'God's majestic creatures.' Secondly, Jing's native people are pretty good about conserving the species. I'd suggest going after some of Leo Wong's construction projects if you want to take up a cause."
   "You're pretty smart for your age. What's your name?"
   "Morgan. Morgan Proctor."
   "Hey - I know your dad from the mines. You and your father are some of the only people on this planet that have given me any straight answers since I've been here." He collected his backpack and left. "See you around, Morgan."
   "Not here, Earther...not on my fishing spot!"
   "Jing...just let him go. He's not a bad guy, just not very well informed. Now - what are you going to show me about ice fishing?"

'Zapp helped', Fry offering to be breeding stock, and it just continues from there! (also like the nod to your last story w/ Bender asking if THEY were the meal  :giggle:)
The political correectness was a hoot, and 'Carter's Liver Pills'... hehehehe- haven't heard THAT expression in years! (it may need to be explained to younger members here  ;) )

Great, funny story, and a touching end!

Bravo, dear sir! :thumbsup:

Post by: Gulliver63 on July 08, 2013, 05:47:36 AM
Thanks! My parents, God rest their souls, used to use that expression all the time. "I've got more of those than Carter has liver pills!" I've never seen 'em, and had to Google them up to find out what they were. They really didn't  do anything for the liver - they were little more than a good laxative.

I just love the hell out of the Amazonians when their IQ gets boosted - they're scary enough the way they are, and then you get one that can really use their intelligence. If anyone hasn't, it helps to read my earlier story "Educating Neeta" where we see that same device used.

I also liked the "Venus-Eye" joke which might need some explaining. The "Who kept you from the table" joke came straight from the army.

My friend at work Robert Stewart read that scene and told me, "Leela wouldn't do that..." I told him, "Yes, she would...hell, I would..."

A note - Irene Wu was originally created for my fan comic "The Incredible Shrinking Bureaucrat." I don't know if I'll still use her there, but I'm glad she got put into this one. Robert Stewart at work gets the credit for her number, the number of pi.

Another note - I'm hoping most folks spot the scenes I used from Charlton Heston's "Omega Man," the Woodstock movie scene and the ringing phones. For those younger that might not have seen it, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-MosmUseSY

I'm going to use you guys in an experiment...I whipped this up last night just to see how it would work. See what you think...

Stewie stared at the green space ship in his midst. He stepped slowly toward it, but stopped abruptly when the gangway extended to the ground. An excited Brian came running up.
   "Stewie," the dog shouted, "what the hell did you just do?"
   "I seem to have pulled in some sort of vehicle from the future; a little thanks for being a genius might be in order."
   A woman came walking down the gangway, her head buried in a star chart. Not knowing what else to do, Stewie decided to greet her.
   "Uh, hullo..." the baby announced. "I say - do you come in peace, or should we attack with garden tools and pitchforks?"
   The woman dropped her map, and the two let out a gasp of shock as they saw the cycloptic eye. She got an angry look on her face. "What's your problem?"
   The baby pointed at her. "My God, Brian - this is the apocalypse, and we're the very gatekeepers!"
   The dog grimaced. "I'm still worried about how Lois will react...her ship landed right on her begonias."
   Turanga Leela just looked down at the two.
   Stewie recoiled in fear. "That eye won't turn me to stone, will it? I'm not up on my mythology."
   Leela let out a dry giggle and bit her knuckle. "How cute - a talking baby. And the dog talks too. What is this, a circus act?"
   "You should talk," Stewie bellowed, "you hold-out from an epic tragedy. Have you thrown any giant boulders at Greek sailors lately? Who's your father...Poseidon?"
   By this time Fry and Bender stepped down from the ship.
   "Who's this?" Fry asked.
   "A baby who's headed for an ass-whipping."
   Stewie gazed up in wonder at Bender. "Oh, my...is that an automaton?"
   Bender chewed on his cigar, and looked at Leela. "Uh, how much for the dwarf? I can sell him at a freak show."
   "What bloody time are you three from?" Stewie asked.
   "It's 3013," Leela told him, "everyone knows that."
   "No, not here. Welcome to Quahog...and this is the year 2013, by the way." Stewie turned to Brian with a joyous smile on his face. "My device works, Brian...I can achieve world domination. Victory is mine!"

I feel the same way about Venture Brothers...first two seasons and then kaput. My idea of Lois and Leela would be the unveiling - when Leela first takes off those sunglasses and Lois passes out.

I shared this on SFFC, and I wanted to share it here. This is my very first ever Futurama picture, done back in December of 2009 http://www.simpworks.com/forums/download/file.php?id=8894&mode=view . Notice how nondescript the characters are at the bottom - I didn't really know who the characters were when I did this sketch! I remember having to do some research on the cast before doing the picture. Also note that Leela's eye is shoved over to one side for some unknown reason - something that I had to correct later on the final piece. The finished piece is still one of my most popular...I didn't know then what I had started http://gulliver63.deviantart.com/art/Leela-s-Odyssey-146321658

File it under "W" for "We've come a long way baby," in that filing cabinet behind the Scary Door.

How did everyone like the Leela Redux story? I gave Dink a sneak peek first, as well as Robert Stewart at work. It started from a two-paragraph bit I did to accompany the cover http://futurama-madhouse.net/fanart/gulliver/leela_redux_cover_by_gulliver63.jpg , but I liked it so much that I just wrote the story. The concept of what went on with her genes was where I thought the episode was going to, but didn't.

Here's some gimme information: I'm familiar with the Long Island Sound, as I had two aunts that lived right off of it (one in the Bronx, and one in Queens). The aunt and uncle that lived in Queens were within walking distance of Fort Totten, an old military post. I did probably more research on this story than any other in recent memory, studying everything from maps to what kind of fish live in the area, and of course loads of stuff on cephalopods. Bender's line was borrowed from my late father, who used to tell us, "Aw, that guy is full of the old brown stuff." Oh, and I pretty much borrowed the sea captain from the Simpsons. Let me know what you think...
Title: Re: Gulliver's Pimpline...
Post by: Gulliver63 on September 11, 2013, 03:08:38 AM
Speaking of Mutants and Genestalks...

Here's one of those forgotten pieces...an exploration of ideas that I did about 6 months ago just to test the water. It needs explaining. One of the several different universes that I like to write about is the Universe of Evil, which we read about in my story "Parabox Express." I tossed some sketches over to Kaspired as to what a Morgan Proctor in that universe might look like. This was one of those ideas, horribly mutated from an experiment in Professor Farnsworth's lab. For those not familiar, the Planet Express ship in that universe is little more than just a privateer ship working for the military, and carries arms and armor. The PE crew spend much of their time trying to decided who will kill who.

A young blonde-haired man made his way through the maze of cubicles to the office of Morgan Proctor. He’d risen to the rank of Senior Lieutenant in the Bureaucracy, and he wasn’t afraid of much. Nothing quite prepared him for what he was to experience this day. An admin in a gray suit met him near the office.
   “So, you’re the idiot that screwed up the Planet Express account…”
   The blonde Lieutenant bristled. “Just let me get my ass-chewing out of the way so I can get back to work. I can’t believe the Secret Police has to answer to you guys.”
   The man chuckled. “You haven’t met the boss-lady yet, have you junior?”
   “Should I be concerned? She’s just another bureaucrat in a sea of bureaucrats.”
   “She’s really pissed about this Planet Express deal.”
   “She’ll get over it. I understand that she was injured by one of the Professor’s experiments…I’m sorry about that – the Secret Police won’t accept responsibility for his mistakes.”
   This prompted a look of surprise from the admin. “You really aren’t aware of what happened…oh, are you in for a shock.” He walked the Lieutenant over to Morgan’s office, and opened the door. “Just don’t show any fear,” he whispered. “She can smell fear.”
   The Lieutenant walked into the office, and he wasn’t ready for what he saw. When Morgan turned to face him, he could see that half of her face was no longer human – it sported a hideous multi-lensed insect eye and an antenna. What was worse was that her right arm had been replaced by a human-sized forearm from a praying mantis. She stood up.
   “What’s a matter, Senior Lieutenant – haven’t you ever seen human DNA combined with insect DNA? This was one of the pet projects that the Secret Police had going with Professor Farnsworth, wasn’t it?”
   The Lieutenant’s throat went dry. “Ma’am, I’m not at liberty to discuss such projects…”
   Morgan got up from her desk and walked up to the Lieutenant. He could feel his flesh crawl as she got close to him. She suddenly put her insect forearm across his back. “Don’t be afraid…I just want to use my antenna . I won’t hurt you – I just want to probe you.”
   He felt panic shoot through his body as Morgan’s antenna probed his face and forehead. “I’m betting that Steven outside told you not to be fearful,” she said in a calm voice, “I can sense that, you know - I love it when he tells people that. The insect side of me is very sensitive to the fear in humans.” The probing stopped, and the antenna retracted. She withdrew her forearm, and it curled up against her body with a slight crunching sound.
   “Miss Proctor, I had no idea…”
   She tapped her head with her index finger. “This new brain of mine is just filled with crazy things…the insect side of me is confused as to why it can’t just slay you right here in the office and lay its eggs in your chest. The human side says that it would involve lots of nasty paperwork if I did such a thing. Pure-strain humans would consider it a major ‘faux pas.’”
   “Ma’am?”
   “You’re fearful. They’re all afraid of me out there – every one of them. We have a simple relationship; I tell them what to do and they carry it out. This is why the Bureaucracy let me continue in my job. You, on the other hand, are filled with a different kind of fear…you knew what Farnsworth was doing in there when I showed up for my inspection. You knew what I was walking into…”
   “Ma’am…I…I’m still not able to discuss a current operation.”
   Morgan unfurled her right forearm, and gazed at it with pride. “Do you know what scientists call this limb? This is a raptorial arm, used for grasping prey securely. Oh, it can try to escape, but the poor victim will be torn to shreds and eaten in the end.” She extended the limb out and back again. “While an efficient killing machine, it’s not much good for holding a pen – I had to learn how to write left-handed after the accident.”
   With lightning speed Morgan swung the forearm out and got the man in a death grip around his neck; he tried in vain to break free with his hands, but the limb was unbelievably strong. He moaned out in pain from the spikes along the claw.
   “How does it feel being prey? You are going to tell me what the Professor is doing, or I’m going to tear your head off of your neck. I’ve done it before…”

   The entire department watched in silence until the Lieutenant was finally thrown out of Morgan’s office. The admin tried to help him, but he waved the man away and left for the elevator. Morgan soon popped her head out of the door. “Where is my meat?” she bellowed. “I demanded meat nearly an hour ago…must have meat!”
   “Yes, ma’am…on the way.”
   The admin quickly grabbed several steaks out of a refrigerator and took them to Morgan on a plate. She snatched them out of his hands, and he left quickly. She then slammed her office door so she could devour her meal.
   “That was terrible,” a woman squeaked.
   “At least this one got out alive,” said the admin.

I saw Rickover speak at Emens Auditorium at Ball State University in 1982; I was always glad that I took the time to do that. Along with George Patton, I love tossing his quotes around at work. "The more you sweat in peacetime." he once wrote. "the less you'll bleed in war."

What I love in the piece is the duality of her split mind...the human side, which is concerned with protocol and human mores, and the insect side that thinks of things like, "Me hungry...me get meat. Tasty meat..." For some reason of late I have simply fallen in love with writing horror stuff; I have several Simpson THOH things going out in October at Simpworks.

Post by: Gulliver63 on September 14, 2013, 11:37:34 AM
I've come home from another shift at work, and I've got an idea biting me in the brain. I love the feedback that I get here with you guys, and I love to experiment with new stuff. Actually this is something that I've toyed with for a couple of years. This is literally "Futurama: The Next Generation." I think most of you are familiar with my "kids" http://gulliver63.deviantart.com/art/The-Kids-Are-Alright-290976151 , Sara, Phil Jr. and "Little Annie" Kroker. I've decided to test the waters a bit and see if I can do a story about 20 years into the future as the young ones find their own adventures in space. I wrote a tiny treatment just to see how this would feel. I kicked around various ideas like possibly having two separate ships, or just re-fitting old Bessie like on the Star Trek series. Here we see one of the gifts that Kif passed along to his daughter with his DNA - the ability to stretch her arms and legs like a Stretch Armstrong. It will be a while before anything comes from this, but it's a start. My stories would also include an adult Cubert and Dwight, and the head of the Professor in a jar (which can be easily mounted onto a robot body). And, of course, Bender and Zoidy.

Phil Fry Jr. spent his Saturday afternoon the way he normally did, with his earphones on and his music loud. “Little Annie” Kroker called for him, but he didn’t respond. She bumped into Leela in the hallway.
   “Hey,” she asked her, “have you seen that red-on-the-head son of yours? This package has got to go out in a hurry.”
   Leela grinned. “Try the lounge – and he won’t hear you.”
   “Thanks.”
   Annie went up to the lounge and called Junior; his mother was right, that he wouldn’t respond. She pulled one of her favorite pranks and stretched her arm – her father Kif’s DNA allowed her to do this. Her arm stretched several feet until it got near his head. The fingers nimbly snatched the earphones and snapped them against his head.
   “Hey!!” He swung his arm out, but no one was around; the arm had already resumed its natural length. “Annie – what’dya do that for?”
   “Come on, Red – we’ve got a shipment going out. I can’t use a deaf crewmember.”
   “I’ll tell mom on you…”
   “You know what she’d say.”
   “Oh…right.” Junior looked around. “Where’s Sara?”
   “She’s preflighting.”
   “But it’s Saturday…I’ve got a grav ball game I don’t want to miss.”
   The spiky-haired Asian girl put her hands on her hips. “You’ll just have to miss it – you’re still at work.”

It's a really fun concept because I can re-visit old characters, and then introduce new ones. As I was going to bed this morning, I thought it would be fun to have a side story where Morgan Proctor, who has just been made Bureaucrat General, is training her replacement. This idea really got pulled back out of the closet after we saw Fry and Leela aged in the last episode; I don't plan on them being that old, but I loved the color of her hair in that episode. I've already done a few sketches of her looking older, and I've got her ponytail cropped off and a shorter hairstyle for her. It's such a fun thing to play around with...

My personal favorite part of the story is Leela lying to Lois about being their new neighbors. "That's what we did...when we did what we did..." is one of my favorite lines I've ever written. "Introduce us, honey...we're the Ivanovs."

Also, the Line House was an actual restaurant that I had chowder and a Red Hook beer in while in York, Maine. Sadly, it folded.

Thanks! That one came up so quickly - I got the idea one day as I woke up from my night shift sleep time. Now it's time for the goodies behind the story. When Morgan described herself as a "door-buster and an ass-kicker," Harry S. Truman described himself the same way in his autobiography "Plain Speaking." "Ferrell's" came from Farrell's Ice Cream parlors, which used to be a country-wide thing http://www.farrellsusa.com/ . We grew up with the one in Tempe, and it was the place where they would sing Happy Birthday for you at your table. The two security guards were a direct reflection on my job at work. Dirty anti-protons was just something that stuck in my brain from college - I have no idea what they are, although I think they are a by-product of protons from a nuclear reaction of some kind...it does sound good, so I use them. My wife and my female co-workers loved the story, and related to it, even though they were non-fans of the show. I've mentioned Prospect Heights as Zelma's home, as I'm an aviation nut and Palwaukee Airport is up there; it doesn't seem like a bad place to be from. And, again I mention Morgan as being from Syracuse - more head-canon on my part. Lastly, my work associate Robert Stewart helped me with ideas for the baseball game - I thought I knew a lot about the sport until I talked with him.

@Flounder - I really have no other plans to add much more to the Vanquished story, but I still would like to write a small book with different characters. What's more likely to happen is that I do a really nice cover for it. If I do, you'll be the first to see it.

Thanks! Just out of curiosity, I'm curious as to how you thought it was going to end. I did have fun with this one - I knew it couldn't be just a clone of "Teenage Hurdles" where she just turns back into a little kid. I'm glad you liked it.

Post by: Gulliver63 on October 23, 2013, 03:29:28 AM
That's a good point - I think the whole goal of writing about a character like this is to somehow peel her open and find what good there is in her. She's tough, hard, has huge defensive walls around her, but somewhere deep inside is a good person. My father was a fantastic person, but he had this tough New Yorker exterior that made it hard to see.

Did anyone catch the yo-yo? That was a last minute add-on, and was really kind of an avatar of sorts...it was like a link to that happy past as a child that she's long forgotten about or kept deeply hidden.

I guess the reason I ended it the way I did was it is just such an easy road to show her as a Darth Vader; even old Darth in the end acknowledged a love for his son. I believe this person has some good in her; just God help you if you have to work for her :)

I did catch the yo-yo, it seemed unusual but I failed to make the connection with why it might be there.  This isn't a fault of your writing, it's a fault  of they way I'm wired - I usually kind of slow and clueless when it comes to the subtlety of human psychology.  :smirk:

Well, I'm no Asimov, and I certainly don't know all the plot devices. I'm calling it an "avatar," although I don't know if that's even the right name for it. I'll have to look up plot devices, and see if it has another name.

Oh, yeah...I love the idea of a musical number - ranks right up there with that scene in the Simpsons Movie, or the "Pie" song in the Family Guy Disney episode. If I get creative enough, I may try to write lyrics just for fun. BTW, in my next story "Slurmworld" I have a couple of songs written out like that - there is at least one Grunka Lunka song. They are told several times, "Don't answer me in song! Just answer the question!"

OH GOD!  THE MEMORIES!  MAKE THEM GO AWAAAAY!!! :crylol:

Oh, this reminds me SO much of a trip my family took to a 'certain Magical place' in Florida (Not Sea World- I enjoyed that one better  :giggle:) when I turned 13.  I was the only one (including my Grandmother) who didn't really enjoy themselves.  Although the tides DID turn when we went to their new (that year) more 'educational' 'world of tomorrow'.  I thoroughly enjoyed it, and enjoyed 'visiting the other countries', while my family was bored to tears.  I used to tell them it was a person trap designed by a mouse... they still hate me for that and for 'ruining a family vacation'.  :devil:

Now if it were based on a theme park designed by a certain Chocolate/candy maker, in a certain town in Pennsylvania that has his name...  :crylol:  Oooooh yeah, I'd be acting like Fry and Bender.  :rolleyes:


Seriously funny story!  And I believe that ending deserves a' DUN-DUN- DUUUUUN!!!!'   :uhoh:

Post by: Gulliver63 on November 27, 2013, 03:54:02 PM
Thanks Guys! I actually wrote a small part of this on the plane down to Florida in June of this year. I didn't want to offend anyone who really dug the place, but I'm just not a big fan of it - especially during the summer, which is when I'm usually there. It's like walking around a bake oven during those months. Even as a child in 1972 all I can remember about the place was being hot and miserable. In all fairness, the part of it I really like is the Japan store in Epcot - I love the people that work there, and it's twice as big as any of the other stores there. And those sweet Japanese people endure me butchering their language...
...and again in all fairness, there have been those places near and dear to my memories. Growing up in Cincinnati, we had Coney Island and later King's Island, which I still enjoy. In Phoenix, we had Legend City, which is long gone, and the Arizona State Fair.

@ Dink - I actually based the Slurm Castle on a place called Dutch Wonderland in Lancaster PA http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v470/bananaphone5000/GORILLA3/DutchWonderland-7-67-A.jpg . Just the visual image of the Slurm Bell ringing and all those people like Zombies migrating to that place...

My family went there in the summer of '72 also.  Like Dink, I too was the party-pooper.  As an adult, I've spent time in every one of the EPCOT "countries" except Norway and China, and I'm going to Norway next summer.  Don't even get me started on the Disneyization of foreign countries... :pukey: :verymad: :wall:  Makes me proud to know that my nephew and niece, who live <15 mi from DW, hate the place.

@ Flounder - I'm so glad to hear this - I thought I was going to have rubber dog poop thrown at me by Disney lovers. I probably would enjoy the park in an off-season, but going there in the summer is tantamount to going on a military exercise in some god-awful hot place. My wife and kid practically worship the place, but even my wife this summer told me that she was done with the Magical Kingdom. Oy, and what they've been doing with Star Wars merchandising at Disney is absolute crap. I'd rather go to Slurmworld and hang out with Clem Centipede and his friends. Eating Poindexter's Sugary Carb Squares. Drinking Omicronian Slurm.

One thing that I didn't get finished is a sketch map of the park - in it, at the end of the park, is a Cthulhu-themed area with a ride called the "Tunnel of Lovecraft." I'll have to pull that out again.

BTW, you caught Bender's Charlton Heston line? "You blew it up!"

Among the other million things I'm doing, I'm trying to put together a game module for a Futurama GURPS game. This module will cover any kind of game you can play on Amazonia, and will be complete with maps and a planetary data sheet. It is set in show canon, but there is a lot of my own headcanon from my two stories that I've written. I can share with anyone interested by e-mail. Hopefully it will have a number of nifty NPC's.

I love the Charlton Heston stuff because he was always so over-the-top in his delivery. I think it's a fun thing, being able to rip something off and throw it into a fanfic. I recently finished a Futurama parody of the old "Fantastic Voyage" where the gang has to take a submarine inside of Morgan Proctor - that was really fun to write. I have several Star Wars lines batted around in there...

Oh, my GF loves Lovecraft, and has a Cthulhu symbol on her car - similar to the Flying Spaghetti Monster one on my van :P .  IMHO, she would like seeing that map.

Been a while since I've seen the *old* Planet of the Apes movies (which I think is the source of that line?), but thought that was Heston's.  Love it! :biggrin:

Thanks, guys!

@Flounder - I was wondering what you thought of my language sheet - I was hoping it wasn't too gakki-t'aa. I actually use this language for my passwords, and no one is able to hack into me. If I publish "Leela and the Hata Stone in 2014, you'll see some more of that language in action. You'll see the term Garataka come back into play.

@Dink - at first I didn't know where I was going with this...the mutant storyline hit me later in the story. It's really kind of a quirky 1930's movie plot when you think of it. A lot of the inspiration for Zapp's mother came from Lady Astor from "The Mutants are Revolting."

The language gag with the android came from a cartoon I did of a female co-worker about 20 years ago.

@Flounder again - For the location of Zapp's family estate, I also considered the Groton Connecticut area, which I'm more familiar with.

Post by: Gulliver63 on January 02, 2014, 02:07:05 AM
I'd love to share where this story came from. I originally slung this idea to Chris Dawson about four months ago, who suggested I write it. It started from a simple question; has anyone on the show ever mentioned his family? To my knowledge they haven't. I suggested to her at that time that he be from a wealthy family from New England, much like the Kennedy's. As we were heading into the holidays, I decided to make it an X-mas story - I had never done this, but had planned one about four years ago when I worked at the high school (the mutant X-mas and their tree came from this early version - God forbid, I actually had a song and the sheet music written for this thing). The flim-flam bit was in place from the beginning, but the mutant part of the story came along later; this hit me on my security runs in the middle of the night.

Not a problem, guys...every story has a different story of how it came about. Sorry to blather, but Asimov's first "Foundation" novel had about a three page forward that was interesting as heck - he started writing that thing in 1941. He also sought the help of another novelist after getting "stuck in a hole" in the writing.

Thanks! As I read back over it again, I enjoyed it too. Last fall I was going through this fascination with those Star Trek-esque psionic mutants. The idea of staging a play hit me as I drove to church one week - I knew that the play was going to be the resolution of the story. And, as is the case for many of my stories, my buddy at work Robert Stewart provided valuable feedback and input.

I also enjoyed finding those song lyrics, and couldn't help but think how fun it would have been to actually have Katey Sagal and Billy West singing the numbers for an episode.

A word on the ending; it was originally going to end quite differently. I knew that I didn't want her to die, as I want to use her in future stories. I was originally going to have her create an accident with the bus "Fugitive-style," and escape by posing as a little red-headed girl with pig-tails. At the very end the shook-up driver couldn't figure out why the girl was running away from the bus. The current ending hit me as I patrolled through our labs at work.

My thanks again to Tim for a great job posting the piece, which looks really nice.

And here's a spoiler for everyone: a third Amazonian story is in the works, and another big illustrated story is on the way.

Thanks! I've got at least one more in front of it. The story is almost finished - it's called "How Thog got her Groove Back." It deals with poor Thog trying to get by in an Amazonia that is beginning to embrace change and technology. On top of her problems, an Amazonian has been given the title of "Technology Czar," and has started to cause problems for both her and the Planet Express crew. But an ancient problem from the past threatens the city and it's up to our heroes to put things to right. I hope to have it up within a month. Here's a teaser:

"I long for good old days...the fire of my people has gone out. They no longer care about old ways, about the hunt." She gestured her hand over toward the city. "They content to live in city, to shop for food in stores. In old days Amazonian would bring down big animal; entire family clan would eat and enjoy. My people no longer care about consulting the Medicine Woman...they don't care about spiritual journey. They now want to be a thing called a yuppie and worship the gods of Izod and Polo."

Oh, my...I'm causing family problems now (just kidding). Firstly, I'm starting to love making references to old episodes ("and you hacked them to bits"). The original mission in the book/movie was only an hour long - I had these guys in there for three days, so the sub is much bigger. I also liked throwing around Star Wars quotes all over the place ("They let us go..."). How did you like the Carcarons shoving piles of shrimp into their mouths?

"On the bounce - you apes want to live forever?" came straight from Heinlein's Starship Troopers.

Irene Wu and her mother appeared in a previous story, Domesday. I have hopes of doing further stories about the mysterious, scary goings on at the top of the Bureaucracy; my ending here came together rather suddenly at the end of the writing process. I was originally going to have the gang exchange a few barbs and go about their ways. My friend at work Robert Stewart read my ending and told me, "Why, this reminds me of the Illuminati." I pointed to him and said, "That is exactly what I'm going for...you got the idea." A faceless body that runs everything.

Oh, and one more tidbit - Morgan's blood pressure and pulse. I had to go to the hospital in December of 2004, and those were my readings - I found them in a journal. They gave me a nitroglycerin pill which gave me a screaming headache, and I had to spend the night in St. Vincent Hospital. I was given the treadmill that next day, and told that I had no heart issues whatsoever - it was the stress of my job that brought all that on.

At the end of that busy weekend, Kaspired and I went down to the local art museum here in town. Check out this piece that came from a sketch that I did there http://gulliver63.deviantart.com/art/Leela-and-Infant-Nibbler-444295490 . Also, while we were chatting with El-man via Skype, Mike and I did a piece of art together; here is the finished piece http://kaspired.deviantart.com/art/De-evolution-444167708

The Amy ape piece needs a bit of explaining. Mike and I showed a bunch of art to everyone. I showed off a piece based on the ending of the newer "Planet of the Apes" ending; a poor horrified Fry came back to the present to find a huge statue of Morgan Proctor, and a world run by the Bureaucracy. Mike told me I should have made her look like an ape, in keeping with the film. I doodled her as an ape, but then doodled Amy, which was much funnier. Next thing you know I ended up with this Amy ape up a tree with her banana. El-man was able to see this thing develop, as I would hold it up to my computer for him to see.

Here's a picture of the perfect storm I rode out as 2nd asst. engineer aboard CS Responder in mid-2002:

North Pacific, remnants of cyclone Bavi.  All the fishing boats had long since headed into port.  This picture was taken by the 2nd mate, toward the bow from the ship's bridge while "hove to" (holding station pointed into the wind and waves).  Yes, those waves out there are as tall as the bridge.

Are you familiar with an old cartoon called Quick Draw McGraw?  Maybe you can do some fan art of him and Ba Ba Louie meeting the PE Crew.  Quick Draw can become El Kabong and hit Zoidberg over the head with his guitar!

Or maybe one of them meeting American Dad since you do some of them with Family Guy.  Maybe one of them as the American Dad characters, or meeting them.  If you read my fanfic, Prison of Doomed Souls, you can do a fan art promo pic of that!

Thanks! Robert Stewart and I are both huge fans of that genre. The story was a ball to write; I scanned through a gob of old movie clips to get the gags right. I also loved using Tonya as an "angel of death" who could sweetly sing lines from "Annie." I think I ripped off more movies in this one than just about any story I've written.

Post by: Gulliver63 on May 22, 2014, 11:51:29 AM
@Dink: I knew we had a bunch of WW2 buffs in here that would pick up on that one. Harry S. Truman told us that every generation has to learn the same lessons over and over again. I think there was a lot of anit-Putin sentiment that went into what the ants were dong in the kitchen as well; the fact that they had an army on the borders of the kitchen, but had no plans to invade  :uhoh:

I was inspired to write this after the gang was here at the end of March. I was, uh, not so quick about cleaning up the kitchen, and started having these little ant friends drop by. So you could say that the story was inspired by Tim and the gang in an off-hand way. I had the rough draft done in one day. One of my first SF novels I ever read was "Phase IV," so this story had the working title of "Phase V." Fry saying that they were a "poet and don't know it" is something my mother always said. Robert Stewart helped with parts of it, including the initial report that the scout ant gave. I really wish this could have been an episode - I would have had music from the "Lord of the Rings" playing while Morgan's micro-droid rode the ant.

I know I've griped about this at another thread on this board, but I spotted another example of bad editing last night on Fox; my favorite episode was on last night, "Farnsworth's Parabox," and I watched it with a co-worker. In the Latin Universe, they clipped out the Professor saying, "Que?" Why would they do that? edited no less around a commercial. Farnsworth turns, but he doesn't say anything. I literally was telling my work associate, "Check out what he says here," and he doesn't say anything. That's one of the funniest lines in the episode. Cretans.

What's absurd is that it wasn't even 10 seconds; they showed him turning around, but they just cut out the line. About the only TV I watch is because they insist on having the TV on at work in case some news item jumps off. I'm with you; I've mostly disconnected from this world that's filled with big business filling us up with their brain-washing. I'll be safe until they start injecting ads for Lightspeed Briefs into my dreams...

Hey, the story's up! Many thanks to Tim for a great job as usual, but also to Mike (Kaspired) for a neat little pencil sketch added in there. Also thanks to Robert Stewart for some great feed back. A few tidbits..."Scooter" was what I used to call my daughter before she was born, and she was also my "Little Stubborn Leo Girl." And St. Claudette ::chuckles:: is officially the patron saint of Mars (or will be, quite some time from now); Claudette was the one saint name I didn't find taken already.
     "Canal at Phobos, near the Lucky Starr Cafe" is an obvious homage to Isaac Asimov from his Lucky Starr novels. If you can believe it, I have a crude map that I've drawn of Olympica City that I actually go by.

Read and enjoy!

Hey...I was so happy to see my story "Zapp Brannigan and the Planet of Women" posted - many thanks go out to Tim, who I know has been as busy as a centipede in a tap dance contest with fallen arches. I know it's early, but I wanted to give some background on the story. The Planet of Women, Mindora, was created by me 20 years ago for a GURPS Space game; I actually have maps of the place from two decades ago. I didn't want to create a stupid, lampoonish place for cheap laughs, but instead a plausible place that just worked a little differently than what we're used to (I actually pulled my daughter for a few pieces of info, as she's studying feminism in college). I did think it was amusing that the roles are reversed; in the novella I'm playing with on the side, one of their bureaucrats has to correct Morgan Proctor for not holding the door for a guy. Anyway, here are a few goodies to share.

     1. I loosely based Zapp Brannigan's show on the old Dean Martin Show I grew up with.

     2. When the Mindoran cop announces herself as "Radio 22," that's my radio number here at work.

     3. When Amy described the bell boy as being like an action figure, that she could "move his little arms and legs around," it was something that a female friend once said about Davy Jones of the Monkees.

     4. I tossed out another of my many head-canon bits about Mars, that they have a fruit grown there called a Martian pearapple.

Again, thanks to Tim, and enjoy the story.

Poppycock! You're just beginning as a writer. Now is your opportunity to take some time off and read some of those science fiction short stories (the old ones) that I keep bragging about. Some other idea will bite you in the brain and you'll be back. Writing is fun.

Quote
Will that be your next story idea?

That's a dangerous question to ask. I just submitted a sequel to my ant story to Tim. I just finished a story about a dream machine that the Professor made, based on the 1955 Isaac Asimov story "Dreaming's a Private Thing." I've got lots of things and doo-dads I'm playing around with, including a novella based on the Planet of Women and an in-depth interview with Professor Farnsworth.

Thanks for that, it's always good to hear. I didn't really hear much feedback from Planet of Women, and thought I'd dropped an egg with that story. Whether it's writing or art, I love making people chuckle.

I believe that this is the first pairing of Mom and Morgan ever...and as you might guess, there's no love lost between the two. I had to do more studying of ants and a little studying of Che Guevara for this one. And we get to meet Morgan's boss Mr. Duffy officially for the first time.
 
     I took Fry's line about "killing some time" from an old Black Adder episode. And I took a second to tease Ted about a gag we had with the word Haberdashery when he was here at the Gulliver hacienda - I was doing a read-through and mentioned a Haberdashery, and Ted burst out into laughter; I knew it was only a matter of time before I slipped that back into a story.

The dream story is here, and I must say that I'm impressed with the job that Tim did. I even ran across a forgotten picture, the young Farnsworth near the bottom, and he was able to get it in for me. Recognize the cover? It was based on the "Nightmare on Elm Street: Dream Warriors" poster from 1989. As mentioned by Tim, I was inspired to write this after reading a 1955 short story by Asimov called "Dreaming is a Private Thing" where people of the future were paid to dream for other people's entertainment.
     I mention Venus in my story. Futurama talks quite a bit about Mars and Neptune, but really never mentions Venus. I plan to mention this planet more, as in my canon it's a place filled with jungles, white sand beaches and resorts. I also mention parts of Connecticut that I've been through.
     The name for Mom's spendthrift niece, Vesta Buell, just hit me one morning at work; Robert Stewart and I had a big belly laugh out of it. I thought she'd be the perfect character that Mom could manipulate, seeing as she had to pay off some of her debts.

Enjoy!

I am considering doing something a little new, that others have done for quite some time. I am considering posting a story on this board in pieces; it's been done for two years, and I really want to share it if anyone is interested. It's technically the last of my alternate Leela stories, where an alien Leela has discovered her roots on her mystical cyclops homeworld. I do recall that there was some interest shown in it - thanks.

By all means give us a look at it. Anything Leela related is fine with me. Along with others; I never bought into the Sewer Mutant aspect and felt it would have been much more interesting to have kept Leela an alien of an unknown species. The storyline took an easy-out with mutants, and keep the door open for Leela and Fry to have kids, if they ever marry. A glimpse into a Cycloptic world (I use Cycloptic in my own fanfic, but I don't know if the word actually exists) would be very interesting.

Thanks so much for responding. The alternate Leela thingee was early in my fanfic career, back when I was still trying to be a Frank Herbert or something. I don't know if you've read any of those stories, but they started out with "The Last Turanga" trilogy. I, like you, found the fact that she's a sewer mutant a big let-down. One of the first episodes I ever watched through was "Bicyclops Built for Two," where she gets duped into finding the mystic Cyclops planet; I just assumed at that point that she was going to continue searching for it, and never quite find it.

     What happens in my series is that this alternate Leela not only finds that planet, but finds that she was a part of one of the most important families on it. She also finds out that her entire family was wiped out in a clan war, and that she was smuggled off world as an infant. The world is a low-tech world, set up very similar to medieval Japan in ways. Honor is everything, and who you are depends on what your last name is - I wrote that her last name Turanga actually means "guardian," as their function was to defend the palaces during the planet's monarchial past. Good grief, I even created part of a working language for these people, and a weapon that most of them carry. When it's all said and done, Leela finds herself; this is good in a way, and bad in that she ends up being stretched between two worlds.

Here is some artwork I did to compliment the series: http://gulliver63.deviantart.com/art/House-Turanga-300670433

I haven't done a parabox idea yet, but it's a killer idea. What I'd like to do is some maps and stuff for GURPS - I've still got the maps I've doodled out 5 years ago.

I don't know how many people have seen this, but I painted this for that series. This is Leela after she gets canonized as the saint of her homeworld. I've actually shown this painting a couple of times. The red pictographs near the bottom are her name in her native language.

I most defiantly have read them and enjoyed them very much. You managed to create a planet, a civilization, a culture and a (rudimentary) language, was well as the original characters needed for the storyline. Yours and KurtPikachu2001 works were the second in the group of Futurama fanfics I read. Both if you are quite prolific writers, but it was red-line's stories that I read first, and and they got me hooked on fan fiction. I like fanfics to take me somewhere that I have not been before and meet people that we have never seen in the show. We have been into the sewer plenty of times and while Munda, Morris, Raul, Vyolet and the rest of the Mutants are nice enough, I feel the sewers have been explored sufficiently.  Reading your stories, as well as red-line's, caused me to alter my own fanfic (which KurtPikachu2001 has been reading, and he is holding my feet to the fire to finish and post it) so that I would not step on your literary toes.

As far as Frank Herbert; I've tried to plow through Dune three times and never succeeded in finishing it. A dusty copy still rests on one of my book shelves. 

By all means, post the story that you have been holding back.

@ MTC29 -

Oh, that planet was my playground for quite some time. I created a similar language nearly 20 years ago for a race of beings in a GURPS game; much of what you see in my stories is stuff I created for that game two decades ago. When I created the sharan-jii weapon, I was a janitor at the time...I used to have this thing called a high duster that was yellow, and I would practice combat moves with it to see what combat with the sharan might look like. I also saw a video with someone using a bo staff that helped. There were so many stories that went into it. At the time I was in a terrible job situation, and this Leela was literally my hero - I just wrote and wrote and wrote. I always like fan response, and I like that interaction with people.

This sketch, done over four years ago, was the first development of the alternate Leela with her weapon. Her sash here looks more like a sari then what it became. I later described her to a friend as being like a "Barbara Stanwyck" of her planet, keeping a manor house (a "ranch" if you will) barely going. On her sash is her family colors, and her metal family crest. I would later make that metal chunk on the end much smaller so that it could be pulled in and out quickly from a leather case.

I remember that... the sharan-jii looks quite similar to the Maori taiaha. There's lots of videos on Youtube that show it's use.
Title: Re: Gulliver's Pimpline...
Post by: Gulliver63 on November 26, 2014, 09:50:23 AM
When I first designed it, I knew that something like it had to have been designed before; I'm just not that clever. I remember describing the first time Leela saw one used, and describing the combat as looking like something they did in the Pacific islands. I also based a lot of its use on an awesome video I saw on the bo staff. I like the way the thing is stowed away in a cylindrical leather case that gets slung over the back of one's shoulder, and that there is a massive difference between one made for the families and one sold in town as a souvenir. I took into account, for example, that a katana is blessed by a shinto priest and custom made for the warrior. All the ones Leela uses were made for that family, and have the "T-R_Anga" pictographs carved into the head.

Hoorah! The steampunk story is launched. I again want to thank Tim for putting up with a lot of technical problems to get it sailing. I really want to know what people think about it, as I put a lot of study into the story. Tim himself became a great sounding board for ideas (who better to talk about steam engines?). I studied everything from old Sherlock Holmes stories to get a British sound to some of the dialogue, and I even did the flight planning for Leela's big flight across the country. I also studied the wreck of the navy airship Shenandoah in 1927 for information. And I even threw in a Rush joke for Marloc. Now, before I forget, this story of mine actually has a theme song. You have to close your eyes and use your imagination...imagine if this were on your television screen. This old Bill Bruford/National Health song would be the theme song to the show https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7ZCBItaV-s

Re the Leela picture: Nice to see a different perspective on our favorite space babe.  MG and DXC say in one of the DVD commentaries that they kept sending back the initial character sketches of Leela because they wanted her to have a bigger nose.  I find that amusing.
So please keep on drawing her, complete with big boots. ;)
I'm also a fan of Frank Frazetta.  AmyGynacaladriel and equine Leela are looking ready to kick some shiny metal right there.

@ Flounder - Oh, Leela went through a ton of changes in those early days; she sort of looked like a punk rocker, a streetwalker, and in one sketch was little more than just a huge eyeball on a neck. I think that cyclops eye of hers makes her mysterious, and invites us to explore what she could be. Both MTC and I agree that she should have been former military, and I think she should have dog tags around her neck. I also had so much fun with my alternate Leela, with her spear and family colors.

     And good old Frank! I have even more Frazetta where that came from, including an unreleased one. I have some Frank books at home - he masters it all, from pencil to pastel to oil paints. He's a marvelous guy to study.

   She gazed up intently at the fish, squinting her eyes. "Did you fill out a 53B importation form for it?"
   "Now you see, that's what I'm talking about. When I look at that fish, I think of how much fun it was to catch it. I think of the battle it put up as I was reeling it in. I think of how much my wife and I enjoyed the cabin by the canal. You see it as business. You've got to lay your work down and relax at some point, or you'll burn yourself out."

Honestly, I must give credit where credit is due - Graham Dawson and his friends over at Simpworks wrote a swap story like this years before I did mine. While mine is loosely based on theirs, I wanted to have a complete swap, and to have a good view at both universes.

Hey, it's here! The first installment in the life of our favorite bureaucrat. I want to thank Tim for getting that posted, and it looks great. I also want to thank Mark MTC for being a great sounding board for the story, and patiently putting up with me blathering about it - he and I talk quite a lot about ideas of Mars. This whole series has been quite fun; writing about her likes and dislikes, and generally creating a character from the ground up with no real canon to work with.
      Here are a couple of gimmes - the story of the baby wetting the scale was taken from what my daughter Holly did in 1993, and much of Morgan's air car driving lesson comes from my flying lessons in the 1980's...including how I had my hand holding up the roof after my first stall. I'm hoping you guys enjoy these, and again thanks to Tim for making it happen.

Next time we take a Morgan break, and we see what happens when the Planet Express crew mix it up with the Simpsons.

Post by: MTC29 on March 14, 2016, 02:07:34 AM
Once again, I am embarrassed by your giving me credit, especially since I have drawn so heavily on your original Mars material for use in my own story.

In The Morgan Chronicles we get, through your fertile imagination, a glimpse into Morgan's personality which in many ways is as surprising as it is expected. We find out why Morgan is the person that she is, but we also discover that just a few simple turn of events might have changed her completely. So far as creativity is concerned, I rank The Morgan Chronicles on par with The Last Turanga trilogy, which along with Red_Line's classic Das Schiff (which motivated me to write my own Futurama story), should be included on the mandatory Futurama fan fiction reading list.

Post by: Gulliver63 on March 14, 2016, 02:22:07 AM
Thanks - I appreciate the praise, but I really look up to these other guys quite a lot. I somehow got hooked to this character about five years ago, and this was very satisfying to crank this whole thing out. Again, stick around - there's lots more to come. And, I again have to give a little credit to my friend Robert Stewart; we discussed at length what the Martian "kem-toong" might mean if translated. This being a family-oriented site, I won't discuss what our theories were ::chuckles:: , but it's not very nice.

Again, I'm glad I'm in such a company of really good writers.

When I saw the front page, I jumped to the story right from the link.  The picture is perfect.  Gulliver, you do such a good job of deducing from incomplete data (in canon) how Morgan might have grown up.

Couldn't agree more.  It is so inspiring and enlightening to read the works of talented folks such as all of you.  (Ramon and I talked about many of this site's writers and stories a couple of months ago when we spent some time together.  Youse guyses would love to have a few days [weeks?] speaking with him; I certainly do.)

It was weird how that whole thing started; most of her headcanon came from that "interview" piece that I did. The most interesting part was her parents; the wealthy, domineering mother, and the happy-go-lucky father that always had a get-rich-quick scheme that never seemed to work. Robert Stewart read my piece here and immediately said, "That woman is a bi***." She was tough on her, but she had a hard time dealing with the husband drinking and messing around on the side. I think Morgan's life was forged by these extreme let-downs.

I really look forward to chewing the fat with both of you guys at some point - when it comes to fanfic writing, you guys are my heroes. I think Marloc, El-man and Red_Line are awesome writers as well, and I write MTC almost daily and throw ideas back and forth with him. Like I said, I feel like I'm in really good company here.

Being a cartophile (an enthusiast of maps) I love it.

None of the names would lead us to believe that any of the many regions of Amazonia are inviting, so the DOOP leisure travel warning makes sense. I'm guessing that the Le Palm D'Orbit (piloted by Zapp), as well as the PE Ship, ended up setting down near Themiscyra, the capitol.

Pretty much...I took the liberty of adding quite a bit of flora and fauna that wasn't in the show. This is a game map, and I've used it for GURPS practice campaigns. I found out that three of these ladies can take down a T-rex; one lost most of her arm in the process. Hey, this is a tough place.

Also keep in mind that there are desert amazonians, and ice amazonians as well.

If I wanted to take a package tour of Amazonia, would it be possible to include the Giant Cyclops Island, Land Of Beasts and the Desert Of Dragons in the same trip? Do you know of any good travel agents in Themiscyra? What is the transportation situation like? I remember when You and I and Flounder went to Cyclon, I was having nothing but trouble trying to ride that quong beast...I can't even ride a horse! I lost track of the number of times I fell off, of course all of that peachberry wine that you two were pouring into me didn't help.

@ MTC ::laughs:: Actually, there is a "holding area" for tourists next to the landing tarmac, which is little better than a strip of cleared out rainforest. The holding area is fenced in with large tree trunks, and is a place where the tourists won't be eaten by dinosaurs until they can be sorted out. The best way to see Amazonia is to bring a couple of cases of Jack Daniels with you - the girls love that fire water, and will work as a tour guide for it. The local bureaucrat can help to secure you a warrior as a guide, which is highly advisable. Trying to sneak in country may put you face to face with a hunting party, and then you'll have lots to explain.

Oh, and transportation? Most likely a bus like this...and you'd best have exact change.

When I first saw it I thought that someone had taken an old John Deere tractor seat, added the headrest from a dentist chair, and then bolted it to a go-cart frame.

Just had to share this photo...I know that Tim and Ted have seen it in the Gulliver DrawNasium already. My cousin Ray at my reunion embarrassed me by blathering about this photo, so I decided to post it at dA and Face Pork. Yep, that's Jimmy Doohan, Scotty from Star Trek. I hardly have connections to Hollywood; James Doohan used to come to our World of Wheels every year here in Indianapolis, so he was sort of a regular visitor. This photo was his idea, BTW. I don't think I ever washed that shoulder after that...would you?

That is Joe Besser and Lorraine Crawford in the Three Stooges film Space Ship Sappy. Lorraine plays Flora, one of the cannibal inhabitants of Sunev, which is Venus spelled backwards. Lorraine was the ex-wife of actor John Crawford, who appeared in countless 1960s and 70's TV shows.

The friend of my brother-in-law who did the body work (the van, an '86 Toyota, was pretty rough-looking when I bought it) and paint job took me to an auto body paint store here in central Florida.  After about fifteen minutes of looking at color cards, I found The One.  A gallon of paint plus thinner cost >$400, but it was worth every penny.  I could give you the manufacturer and color code, but it might only make sense to vendors here in Yankville.

Was there any problem obtaining dark matter during the trip?

No problem at all.  I had a list of Greasy Sue's Greasy Truck Stops that sell it.  I was almost tempted to try one of those truck stop restroom egg salad sandwiches, too.

Gulliver, his wife Nancy, and Ramon plus his whole family - including children and grandchildren - are the most gracious and generous of hosts to a poor road warrior like me.  Youse guyses praise me far too highly.  :redface:  As I told other friends and family, the nerdlight at Casas Gulliver y Ramon was turned up to 1000 watts.  (Normal humans cannot handle that level of nerdlinger without experiencing physical illness.)  It was a geeky good time, and I hope to repeat it with them and others before long.

I think that any science fiction book should be one where you learn something and come away saying, "Gee...I didn't know that..." Science fiction is a balancing act between science and entertainment, and it has to have elements of both. Too much science (like the original Twister novel) and it becomes a boring lecture. Too little science and it becomes a ridiculous fiction yarn. Most of the early greats were men of science, with the exception maybe of Bradbury. Asimov had several degrees in chemistry, and taught chemistry at one time at Columbia University.

Here was a recent one I did for a "Land of the Giants" fangroup at FaceBook - the concept was a LOTG couch gag for The Simpsons.

I wanted to share this with you guys. I was digging through some old movies the other day and ran across a made-for-tv movie called "Y2K." After the intro, I spotted a familar Asian woman - it was the voice of our favorite Chinese-Martian intern, Lauren Tom.

I originally did this years ago, and today I re-did this in Adobe Elements:

Hilarious!  I'd like to blow that up to poster size and put it on every telephone pole during the next election.

Someone should teach this guy how to eat grass and see if he likes it...

I ran across this on YouTube this morning - hadn't seen it in over 40 years. It reminded me of the slave traders in my Amazonian stories. All that's needed is for one of the ladies to say, "Oh...that what snu-snu for!" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YR6M37EPouA

How did I miss that in the '70s?  John Saxon is the American Donald Pleasence.

There was a name in the credits that looked somewhat familiar from this board...

That s from the movie, Planet Earth.  Hilariously laugh out loud insanity!  You're all right, they were like Amazon women before their time.  Anyone remember the Kreegs?

Ted Cassidy was being sold too!   "I'm being sold as a slave.....eeeeeehhhhhhh!"

It caught my eye, as I had a character in one of my Amazonian stories that was a slave trader, the sly Min-Chai.

I've been enjoying some deleted scenes from the 1984 Dune movie. As I watched this one, I could only think of the Slurm factory... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ti2rs0Vbw4

Lately, as I've watched some scenes with Hyperchicken, my mind has floated back to a scene from a little-known Dan Akroyd movie, "Dr. Detroit": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2LQOyplsNTI
