I’ve been working to at least get my Witchfire story going again. As those following my blog know, life has been… chaotic the last few weeks though. I’ll leave the drama at that.
Because I had a deadline to meet with DBC for hosting, and I just ran out of gas, I only got about half way through this chapter, and turned it into a short one. No smut, but it does advance the plot and fill in some questions about the mysterious “Institute”
I finally got this one finished. Krystal’s nearly losing her life to Count Ivanova on Halloween has major consequences when Hexanna blows off the near defeat. Krystal’s up and down relationship with the She-Legion goes down again, and Amazing Babe reacts poorly to discovering Krystal’s true heritage. In the middle of everything, the Aberration decides to tear up the town also. Can anything be salvaged, and can Krystal continue to hold everything together on her own?
For those not familiar with it, RetCon is shorthand for ‘Retroactive Continuity’. It’s a term that first came about in comic book circles. They occur when the writers have mucked up a story so badly that they need to rewrite a chunk of existing history. Sometimes they just happen when a writer thinks they have a better idea to tell a story in a more modern way. I’ll spare my opinion of most of those efforts.
Getting back on track, I had very limited information on Mister X’s character Hexanna when I wrote the first version of this story. I tried to take some creative liberties and made her a character with a magic staff who didn’t actually believe in magic. I thought it would be an interesting contradiction to explore. Probably a bad idea to start with, and once I learned more about Hexanna’s character, I decided a re-write was in order.
Without getting preachy, I feel that if somebody writes fan fiction, they should keep it as true to form as possible to the work of the original author. Ergo, I’m doing what I can to humanize and add some depth to the characters, but I do NOT want to change long established canon about them. Nuff said. 🙂 Here’s the story:
Considering parts 5 & 6 were supposed to just be a more detailed account of the events that were summarized at the end of Chapter 4, they turned into a monster. Chapter 6 is 16,712 words long, and has a few sex scenes, a few fight scenes, and A literal ton of plot and character advancement.
Things should start falling together for readers, giving them a better idea of the shape of things in MY version of Delta City. I’ve made a real effort to create a world with some depth and grit without going total emo melodrama.
As always, comments and feedback are welcome and encouraged. 🙂
This took far longer than I anticipated, but chapter 5 is finally out. This one is covering the events that were just skimmed over at the end of chapter 4. I felt that was a sloppy wrap up and I wanted to do something more proper. Chapter 6 will conclude that series of events and lead into the Halloween story I did. THAT will hopefully be ready next week. For now, enjoy chapter 5
My latest non-fan fiction piece of erotica is now posted. Find out what happens when an executive assistant catches her boss in a compromising position and decides she now has leverage to make her fantasies about him become reality
What’s a sexy witch without a bit of gothic horror added to the erotica around Halloween, right? Granted, I’d hoped to get this put out there earlier, BUT life got in the way. Anyway, read and see how our favorite heroine peril witch handles dealing with an infamous and powerful vampire lord.
Power Girl’s Power Date was a long project (roughly 40 pages in Word) that I’d finished about a week ago when I first set up this blog. The story wasn’t bad, but I was in too big a hurry to get it posted after going almost two years without writing anything.
After some quality feedback, I did a modest re-working of the story. I made Power Girl a bit less neurotic, cut out a bit of redundant dialog here and there, and added a couple new parts that better address Marc knowing Kara’s secret identity, and him asking her for advice on an important project to show he was more than talk about admiring her intellect. Said project may become an important part of a future story also.
The one thing I didn’t take serious steps to address was Marc appearing too perfect. It’s a romance story set in a world where there’s a guy that can push planets around, is one of the smartest beings on the planet, works selflessly to help others and finds it near impossible to lie. Sooooo… Marc isn’t too unrealistic compared to Superman. Besides, every girl deserves to find an amazing guy.
The new story is probably 85% the same, so I’ll leave it to the reader to decide if they think it’s worth another run through. I personally think the new version is a much better read however:
