"Full Circle" - my first ff.net story is up

Postby AprilSeven » 7 years ago

OMG -- be kind! Be gentle! And hopefully you'll find things you'll like and that might inspire some ideas in you for a fanfic!

"Full Circle" is my (admittedly unorthodox) tale of what happened to Astro after the series vanished from TV in the 60's. I always figured Astro would eventually grow up – obviously he was designed to do so – but the programming didn't work as anticipated – instead it kicked in about 12 years later. There are many original characters – and I take no offense to those who prefer to avoid them – I give you fair warning!

The story is set in America (Until 1989 I did not realize Astro Boy was actually set in Japan!). The characters reflect the American dub (with plenty of "artistic license" taken). It focuses on what kept me interested in Astro for almost a half-century: How a boy became the hero of the world, as a robot, and then "returned" to his human origins – in the process, giving us a look into our hearts, morals, and fears, and asking just what does it mean to be "human?"

I've posted Chapter 2, where I get to have some fun with Boynton (Tenma) as he learns about how the fatal car accident came to take place, and explains to Astor (Tobio) what happened next.

Yeah, that was a good one. I especially liked the "Uncle Cobalt" reference!

Wow you've turned into a real speed demon there. I have to spend at least four times longer proof reading then writing and that's not even enough. This story is going great, I find myself going back and rereading the previous chapter each time you've updated it 'cause I don't want to miss anything. I'll leave a review on ff later from home, cause typing on the touchscreen phone is a pain.

Chapter 6 - Skunk . . . gone "legit?"

Postby AprilSeven » 7 years ago

It's like all these people are "living" in me -- and it's been so exciting to write down what is happening in their universe.

Thank you for the kind words of encouragement! :heart: It means a lot to me!!

Somehow I get the impression that skunk hasn't quite been totally reformed.

I also see why you've been absent from the ABOL forum for long stretches. Are you on vacation from work this week?

Nope - last week - but our 4-Hers are getting ready for their annual "Showcase" and I'm cranking out about 50 humungous posters I have to tile, tape and laminate.

Oh yeah . . . I'm also supposed to be redesigning the website in WordPress this week. :rolleyes: :p

Plus each chapter takes me AT LEAST 4 hours. But I just can't control it!! :lol:

My hat's off to YOU for your ability to write sooo much and sooo quickly.

But I get a lot of inspiration from reading the other fanfics and the posts here and seeing the new episodes. In truly in Astro-Wonderland! :lol:

AND YEAH . . . WE'LL HAVE TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS WITH THAT SKUNK!!!
