Hola, it's your maintainer. Would anyone be interested in taking over the community? I hate to see it languish, but I just don't have the interest or time anymore. Comment if you're willing to take over, and if no one comments in the next couple of days, the comm will be deleted.

If You Love Our Fandom, Please Respond! [29 Oct 2004|03:38pm]

[ mood | anxious ]

Okay, here's the deal.

There's a community called crack_van which reccomends fanfiction in vrious fandoms. It's highly monitored, with one person per fandom per month getting posting access and only certain fandoms having permanent Rec status, all others getting one-month stints as a "Tiny Fandom".

I am aparently the first and only person to request driving the crack van for the Matrix Trilogy, and so the Mod is going to relegate The Matrix as a tiny fandom unless I can find 8 to 10 other people (at least) willing to post Matirx Fic reccomendations at least once a week for a month per person. (They also have monthly crossover and Vid recs, too).

Why should you care?

Well for one thing, I have stared reading and writing in THREE new fandoms since I started reading crack_van regularily. Who's to say it wouldn't work for other people with The Matrix? Read enough good fic in a fandom, and the muse starts flowing.... We could have new writers and readers showing up, and that would be a Good Thing, IMHO.

For another thing, this is the chance to pimp your favorite fic (provided you didn't write it) and if enough people sign on, there's a chance your Fic will get reccomended especially if you know who to bribe. ;)

If you're willing to take a turn driving the crack_van down the rabbit hole, please say so here.

I apologize if this request violates any of the rules for this community, but I figured people would understand.

As a side note, I will still be reccomending Matrix Fic even if I don't get enough volunteers, and I'll be writing the Matrix Fandom Overview either way. (Samples of Overviews for other fandoms can be seen here.) I'll be reccomending this community as a source for fic in that overview, if that's okay.

hello [18 Oct 2004|12:18am]

[ mood | groggy ]

Hi! I just discovered this community, and I'm very excited about perpetuating my obsession for Matrix fic. Hopefully I can contribute stuff here soon, when my writer's block gets killed.

I'm Tanathir, and I'm currently writing Conversations With Smith. It's loooooooooong, and nearly completed. Yay! There's also a sequel idea in the works.

Anything else I need to share in my introductions? Feel free to ask.

"A Little Child Shall Lead Him" New Chapter and Universe Visual Reference page [07 Oct 2004|06:28pm]

[ mood | accomplished ]

I've added the next chapter to A Little Child Shall Lead Him" -- which already has inspired me to write a paralell story from Persephone's POV -- and I thought it might be fun to share with all of you a page featuring some of the photos that inspired me while I wrote this fic. You might want to bookmark this page/add it to your LJ memories, since I'll be adding to this as I update the stories...

There'll be more to come, eventually, so keep an eye on this page...

My Apologies for Spamming [23 Sep 2004|02:42am]

Title: Twin's Story
Fandom: Matrix/CWS/Twin Souls
Characters: OCs, Smith
Genre: Action/Adventure
Rating: PG-13 for strong implied violence, mild language
Synopsis: Two members of the Gemini's Crew tell you their story.
Spoilers Serious Reloaded and Revolutions spoilers, and MAJOR Twin Souls spoilers. (But since I havn't written it yet, who cares? *smirks*)
Warning: The "twin" referred to in the title is NOT one of the Albino switchblade-wielding variety, though a couple of those do have a cameo. Fangirls, you have been warned. The title is in fact an Animatrix homage.

EDIT: Y'know, it JUST occured to me this would work better if I included the link to the actual fic. >_< Click on the title, and pay no attantion to the incompetant behind the curtain...

FIC: "A Little Child Shall Lead Him" Part 1 of 3 [20 Sep 2004|08:36pm]

[ mood | creative ]

Hot off the press and onto ff.n:

Title: "A Little Child Shall Lead Him"

Author: "Matrix Refugee"

Rating: G/PG, will go as high as PG-13 in a later chapters

Summary: Post-"Revolutions": A once-powerful program finds himself wandering in the Matrix after the final reload, with only the last exile for a companion.

Note: Merv lovers take note: this is a very unusual fic featuring him in a surprising pairing. Why did I write this? Because I could.

FIC: "The Tidings Brought to Zion" -- Councillor Hamann's Thoughts [17 Sep 2004|10:07pm]

[ mood | accomplished ]

This is part of a possible series of short (~100 words) fics, all of them taking place at the end or just after the end of "Revolutions", all of them describing the thoughts and internal feelings of various characters when the war ends and the cycle of struggle between man and machine stops. I'm starting off with Councillor Hamann, since he's a really great character, sort of like the small-town homely sage or the crusty but kind-hearted high school janitor, but he never gets much fic coverage, which in my eyes is a terrible oversight... So, I thought I'd show his POV first:

"Under the Gun" -- Now Complete!!! [10 Sep 2004|11:27pm]

[ mood | creative ]

I just posted the last chapter of "Under the Gun", which can be viewed here:

Under the Gun: Chapter Nine

I had this written out for a while, but I finally typed it up today (I had every intention of posting this one last week, but I got busy getting ready for WorldCon, the sci-fi convention which was hosted in Boston, MA (not far from where I live) this year: I went in costume as Trinity (it was a homemade costume I rigged up with my typical black imitation leather trenchcoat, a black sleeveless bodysuit and black stretch pants), and amongst other adventures, I bought a copy of Glenn Yeffeth's "Taking the Red Pill: Science, Religion, Philosophy and 'The Matrix'"; AND the editor himself was at the dealer's table that had the book. AND... he autographed it for me!

But, it was good I waited a bit: I didn't like how the ending was turning out in the draft, so I tinkered with it and tightened it up considerably...

And I also created a little bit of "Detective Story" fanart. Nothing too fancy (especially since I made it with MS Paint, which is a junky little program), but I'm very proud of it:

New Fic from the Lady [29 Aug 2004|12:22am]

[ mood | hungry ]

Title: Getting It
Fandom: Matrix/CWS/TS
Characters: Exodus (OC), The Captain (OC?)
Rating: pg-13, language.
Synopsis: In the construct, just after being unplugged, Exodus doesn't "Get it".
Warning: Another fragment of a fic in process, this contains spoilers for my fic Twin Souls, which takes place in the same universe as tanathir's Conversations With Smith. Truthfully, however, this can be read just fine by someone only familiar with The Matrix.

Fanfic tinkering... [25 Aug 2004|01:18pm]

[ mood | artistic ]

I'm working on a "Matrix" filk (ie. a popular song with the words twiddled with so it fits into a particular sci-fi fandom) based off "You've Got a Friend" by James Taylor (Okay, not the most Matrix-y song, but I was riffing from something a crazy friend of mine sang in the car when we were driving to see "Revolutions". And I'm kinda stuck on how to fix the line in the chorus:

"Winter, spring, summer or fall..."

After all... the only season in the real world is something akin to nuclear winter.

And I'm tinkering with another fic idea:

"The Secret Diary of the Keymaker" or "Any Enemy of the Frenchman is a Friend of Mine" -- I've noticed in a couple of shots in "Reloaded" that the Keymaker appears to have a small notepad in a pocket of his work apron... so I wondered what might be on that notepad... Maybe notations about what happened to him, how he got captured by the Frenchman, how long he was stuck in that cell, any unsuccessful rescues/escapes....

I'll see what I can do with this one once I finish "A Little Child Shall Lead Him".

Points Of Veiw: Challenge Me! [23 Aug 2004|01:03am]

[ mood | anxious ]

I had this odd idea, and I hope it will serve as a chance to streatch my writing muscles, because I do almost no first person, and I'd like to.

Thus, I present Points Of View:

An odd little self-imposed contest. Name me any scene from the Matrix trilogy or the animatirx, and any character that was present/is plausible to have been present at that scene. I will write that scene from the 1st-person POV of that character, and post it here as a new chapter.

The Gory DetailsCollapse )

Okay, there we go, please click here to give me your requests, thank you very much.
