Archive Overload?

How are you feeling about the “From the Archives” stuff?

Annoying or entertaining? Both? Neither?

I can keep going. But it’d be even easier to stop if nobody is into it. You tell me.

    keep ’em coming! I’ve been into all of it so far. I just wish these were either complete or still being worked on. I’ve been a fan of your writing for several years now, and due to the current hiatus on both sites I’m extremely happy to get ANYTHING you’ve written. I even have your notes on Expedition 2 and some of the other story ideas you’ve had. I still find it hard to believe that you can’t get any of this stuff published.

    The 3 rogues beginnig was pretty awesome. Quick plot development, and plenty of action. This is definitely one I wish had been fleshed out more.

    Sentinal looked like it would have been ok, but not one that really intrigued me.

    Kilroy’s angel reminded me a little of the currently on-hiatus story The Forgotten. While I’d like to see Forgotten completed (and Captive Souls) I don’t know if Kilroy’s angel would have kept my interest.

    I thought it a funny coincidence that Walk appeared the same day as a similarly titled story on the Asylum Walls. In my opinion, the other guy’s was the better of the two.

    Signs of the Usurper was terrific. Another one you should not have abandoned.

    By the way, I also found the old character summaries on the wayback machine. The story of Physt and Touch would have been a great one, as would almost everything hinted at in the thread summaries and unanswered questions.

    Y’know, of all your “abandoned” characters and settings, I’d have to say that Physt & Crew probably intrigued me most. The fact that you only wrote one story – albeit a story that showed your character development skills to their fullest, IMO – only makes me want to read more about your version of the Tower Guard special unit run by Physt. That one story introduced us to the depth of the characters’ intertwined histories, especially between Physt and Touch. Write more about them pls. kthxbye :)

    You must be referring to Hard Days Night. That was an excellent story, and we never did find out who/what Silvermass is. Silvermass also showed up in Flash Forward, so I expect him/her/it to be a major player.

    HDN was really interesting because all of the “good” guys are just as troubled as the “bad” ones. At one point it was hinted that Physt and crew would try to capture Eric Hood, even though they failed when trying to capture Blaymore. I expect Eric wouldn’t have the qualms about killing them that Blaymore did, and DI sais to expect casualties. I guess that’s another one that was never finished.

    CSI Montfort had Physt and Monica in it again, and was a great story in itself.

    When I found the character summaries I read through about Physt, and there’s at least one great story there that’s just waiting to be written. Going up against the Ysuin and surviving? WOW!

    I’m just glad DI is still doing something, and I’m hoping he can turn a buck with it. I’ll have to sign up for paypal myself when I can afford it and chip in my 2 cents worth.
