---ORIGINAL TOPIC-STARTING POST---
I wrote:Since with the creation of the fanworks section comes the prerogative to make threads dedicated to larger or longer-running works, here comes the topic for my international smash hit* fan fiction, "DragonBall GT: Revised", or just "GTR" for short.
Up until now, I've been posting updates in the good ol' FanWorks explosion thread. But it's been a while since I last posted a chapter, and we've gotten a lot of new members since then. So for a little background info, the basic concept is, as someone recently put it, "If GT Didn't Suck."
I've always had some bizarre fascination with GT since the early days of my fandom, but even as normally accepting and optimistic as I am, even I realize the "ugly stepchild" of the franchise had its flaws. Over time, my incessantly creative brain began thinking up ways with which GT might have been better. Eventually, I had some sort of epiphany and decided to put it into fanfic form. Now two years later, I've gotten the project well underway, and I've got a whole slew of material prepared and conjured up, with a whopping eleven chapters under my belt. Yes, eleven. Ooooh~
Overall, the story won't differ as much as you see a lot of GT-rewrite fanfics do. The same basic storylines will be there, usually with the same or similar outcomes. Except the execution will be, at least I like to think so, leagues better than how GT originally executed it. In other words, in with the good, out with the bad or nonsensical. Or in some cases, if it was good AND nonsensical (Like the Super 17 saga), I'll be trying my best to tweak things appropriately so that they'll fit. I'll be less concerned with what the original GT did, and more with how the manga set things up.
Without further adieu, here's the chapters thus far:
Chapter One- "It's My Match, and I'll Be Late If I Want To!"
Chapter Two - "Leave It To Pilaf"
Chapter Three - "Looking For (Dragon) Balls In All The Wrong Places"
Chapter Four - "Honey, I Shrunk The Saiyan"
Chapter Five - "Aftermath"
Chapter Six - "Third Time's The Harm"
Chapter Seven - "We Interrupt This Fanfic..."
Chapter Eight - "Some 'Splaining To Do"
'Cataclysm' Chapter One - "Little Green Men"
'Cataclysm' Chapter Two - "You Wouldn't Like Me When I'm Angry"
And finally, the catalyst for my making this thread, the latest addition, 'Cataclysm' Chapter Three - "It's Not Easy Being Green." In this chapter, the 'Memories of Namek' mini-arc continues. Shaky alliances are formed, plans are conceived, and things are ready to go completely higgeldy-piggeldy.
But GTR is more than just written material. In addition, I've been doing accompanying artwork for chapters whenever I can, just to allow for a more visual grasp on what's going on. Some of these are kind of old too, but I may as well post the ones I still like, or are still "canon..."
~The mighty dragon Xuelong, from Chapter 4
~The game show hosts and contestants from the infamous Chapter 7
~Slug manhandling the Saiyan mercenary Zunim, from Cataclysm Chapter 2
There was one I made for the first couple chapters combined, but it's horrible, so I'm going to redo it and post it sometime soon. In the meantime, here's some artwork for Cataclysm Chapter 3:
~Zunim's Crewmates - The rest of the troublemaking bunch.
~Makigai, the Namekian capital city. Not to scale.
So I guess that's all I have to offer for the time being. I've come to really be attached to this project, and I intend to carry it on as long as I absolutely can. Even so, my release schedule and pacing could be deemed "iffy" at best, so don't be surprised if some time goes by between chapters being released. The content seems to be worth the wait once it's out (at least, most of my FF.net readers tend to think so), but hopefully shooting it up with you guys will help keep my muse sparked and alive. I'll certainly get cracking on Chapter Twelve right away, and hopefully have it ready in a short while.
If things get dull, I have plenty of extra little material I've accumulated that I can post; things like character profiles, excerpts from my notes, design sketches, and stuff like that. You may or may not really care, but hey, this is the FanWorks section. We're here to bounce ideas off one another and get the creative juices flowing. So if you want, we can ask and answer questions, make suggestions, and stuff like that.
Sometime in the next day or so, I have some more art I'm going to put up. Until then, read and enjoy!
