Genesisbunnies - the Short without Shorts

Title: The Short without Shorts
Series: Zoids
Original Publication: July 2009, Livejournal

So three years after my last Zoid Fic, I wrote another one. I had a joke and decided to base an entire short around it. This was the result.

Continuity-wise I suppose it comes after the end of Genesisbunnies chapter 2, for what that's worth.


Title: Genesisbunnies
Series: Zoids Genesis
Original Publication: May 2006, Phenotype's Zoids Forum

My last Zoids fanfic, Genesisbunnies was planned to be a long-running satirical story arc akin to my other Zoids Fics. Unfortunately, instead, it wound up only being two chapters long. There are a number of reasons for this, but the most important was simple. At the time, the North American Zoids fandom was dying. There had been no new Western Zoids releases in years, no new English-language media after the abortive end of Fuzors, and the Japanese Genesis toy line was busy bombing big-time, and the show stunk. That had the net result of making a fandom parody rather redundant; after all, it's hard to make fun of a fandom when it no longer exists.

With that being said, I'm rather fond of the two chapters completed, and I personally feel that they're some of my best Zoids work. And even if it's glaringly incomplete, there's still elements of what's to come.

Silent Partners

Title: Silent Partners
Series: See Below
Originally Published: October 2011, Deviantart

A simple, short one-shot fic that I wrote on a whim. I can't really say much more beyond that beyond that, since it was a spur-of-the-moment thing. I'm not going to say what series it is; rather the goal is to guess before you get to the end.

Probably can, though.
