Re: I Never Said It Would Be GOOD...

: Well, Kryschenn, let me start by saying that, "You're
: welcome." I really liked the way you wrote ITHOAC,
: especially since it was the first "D&D-C" story that I
: had seen since the series ended.
: "Funny how (Venger is) fine with the thought of beating a
: six-year-old child, but his conscience, such that it is, won't
: let him get away with breaking a promise."
: Actually, I thought that that was a very nice touch in your
: story. As a medieval warlord, Venger would have no qualms about
: harming a small child (Caitlin Grayson would not be the first.)
: But Venger's word was his bond . . . .
: Regarding your planned story updates, I think a plausible
: scenario would be to have Hank, Sheila, and Caitlin living in an
: apartment complex that is owned by Eric's family. Hank could be
: employed there as the on-site property manager/handyman, and
: Sheila could be working at the newspaper. Moreover, if this job
: provides free rent and health insurance, it would make the
: Grayson's situation seem more believable.
: Hey, I actually like that a little better than what I came up
: with. I might make some variations on it, but do you mind if I
: borrow that general idea?
Not only may you ". . . borrow that general idea," Krys, you may HAVE it. (Funny how, in a story with other worlds and dark wizards, the part that I found the most unbelievable was a couple of twenty-somethings, who became parents as teens, owning a nice house . . . .)
I have a couple of "Coraline" fan fiction ideas in development that have Coraline and Wybie married relatively young. But I emphasize that their situation is somewhat unique and quite fortunate, owing to Wybie's family owning rental property. Without getting too preachy, the basic theme is, yes, they married young, but they have more going for them than most, and they did not have any children for several years after getting married. In other words, "This is only a story. Kids, don't try this in real life . . . ."
One of these ideas is a "Coraline" / "D&D-C" crossover. Though to be honest, I think the main reason I have for that idea is to have Venger "hook-up" with the "Other Mother" (who has some similarities with Lolth . . . .)
Now, as I said, ITHOAC is a very well-thought out and entertaining piece of fan fiction. Everyone was in character (though their characters were "age progressed,") And the story was exciting and well-paced. I'll even go as far as to say that, if whoever currently owns the rights to the "D&D-C" wanted to make a one-shot, direct to DVD follow-on, ITHOAC would be a good story idea to use.
So please use my suggestion in good health!
