Ranger fanfic, any interest?

Hi everyone!

Looks like it's been a long time since there were any postings in this board. [img]http://216.15.145.59/mainforums/smile.gif[/img]

Would anyone be interested in seeing a short fanfic I recently wrote about some Ranger pilots? The story is basically about a group of Rangers doing what they do best: taking out the bad guys with a lot of style.

Let me know what you think!

Jamie

  • SanfamSanfam I like clocks.
    Sure! I know many would love this!
  • Of course -- but what exactly is it about?
    Hm -- on the other hand: I'd rather read the story than being told what it's about [img]http://216.15.145.59/mainforums/wink.gif[/img]

  • I liked it. (Yes, finally had the time to read it...)
    Although, as a German, I am not in the position to serve as a English literary critic [img]http://216.15.145.59/mainforums/wink.gif[/img] I always had the feeling that the words were well-chosen. Also, the accelerating/decelerating of the story could be sensed (or was it just my imagination?).
    Well done!

    How did you come up with this story and with writing in general?

  • Thanks for the kind words. I did try to work on the pacing of the story, to have some parts move faster than others. I'm glad you were able to pick up on that!

    This story is actually a part of a larger, ongoing story in an online game, the ISA Phoenix. I and several other people play Rangers on a prototype vessel, and create ongoing stories in the B5 universe.

    As for writing in general ... I'm not quite sure how to answer that. I've been writing stories since I was around nine years old -- it's just something I've always found fun.

    Hope this helps!
    Best wishes,
    Jamie

    I had a short look at you web page - I like it. Great Logo. I am sure that I will read the logs at some time in the future.

    Unfortunately, I do not have the time to write english texts (Thank god that you don't know how long it takes me to post here sometimes [img]http://216.15.145.59/mainforums/wink.gif[/img]). There is a German email roleplaying game, and I thought about being part of it. But there is enough work waiting for me with my own projects.

  • Thanks for having a look at our website. When and if you have a chance to look at the logs, I'm sure our players would enjoy the feedback.

    I have to compliment you on your skill in English -- you write more clearly than a lot of people I know for whom English is a first language!

    Now *I* need to go learn German, so I can properly appreciate your website!
