  • I'm actually rather pleased with it. The wiki portion is off to a good start (in the data gathering stage right now; to do a real wiki I'd need to refresh my memory on those as it's been a long time since the last one I worked on), and I've managed to get going on stories I've wanted to tell for over 25 years. I think it's good that I waited, because I really wasn't as knowledgeable about some things back then as I am now.

    There are so many secondary and tertiary characters in these books with interesting backstories or incidents that happened to them, and since Busby didn't think they were worth writing about, I finally figured out that if I want a story about a certain character or event, I'm going to have to do it myself. I've searched online, and nobody else has posted Hulzein Saga fanfic. The only reference I ever found was a forlorn post on LiveJournal years ago, from a fan who was in the same boat as me - looking for information.

    I'm fleshing out some of these characters, extrapolating the parts of their lives that were just mentioned in passing or glossed over entirely, and it's interesting to see where that leads. Sometimes the story is going places I hadn't originally intended, but it seems that some of the characters had other plans.

    Of course I'm concerned about where it would be appropriate to post some of this material. Because this is a gritty series that takes place in a dystopian future and Earth is mostly governed by a facist dictatorship that cares absolutely nothing for the rights of women, children, or the poor, there are some things that would be inappropriate to post on a site like fanfiction.net. They would very likely remove any story that goes into child rape and incest, but that's a key part of three of the main characters' lives. I can't do this justice by ignoring these parts of what Busby wrote.

  • Post here, of course - Adult Fiction, if it's all that dicey.

  • It is. And there are instances of the word "fuddle-duddle."  :-\

    That's not my normal style of writing. But it's a normal part of some of the characters' dialogue, so it's necessary in order to be true to these characters.

  • I'm glad to hear it!
    I'm starting to see that writing fan fiction is like playing Civilization, in that allows you to gain a measure of control over the universe, albeit an imaginary one, to insert some sense and justice into it  or gain a new level of understanding of it.
