Happy New Years Eve/Day. Here's to a fresh new year and decade.
Oh and here's some minor updates. Ahem, see you next year.
The menu's been altered on the full version of the site to accomodate the changes mentioned on the 4th.
"An Apple A Day" has been added to "Marill Re-Reads Season Two".
Today's the day. It's the nineteenth anniversary of the start of the series, and that's not all. It's also the seventh anniversary of the Reboot and the series comeback after a long "break", the fourth anniversary of the actual series finale, and today will be the final rewritten/booted episode(s). As of today any work I do to the series will be limited to very minor edits, which I've already started to do in preparation for this update.
The series is finished, complete. It'll stick around, and so will I with more edits and Re-Reads. It doesn't have to be a bad thing. This is a significant date for me, which since the comeback I've always overworked myself for in order to celebrate it (yes I'm am idiot). From now on I'll only celebrate the many milestones this series has. Next year will be the big 20.
But anyway Fifth Voyager is 19, so what I do have for it and you this year?
Reboot Season Two, Episode 12: Fifth Fantasy
B4FV Season One, Episode 14: Cathexis

"Why oh Why" has been added to "Marill Re-Reads Season Two".
Certain pages of the site have been removed; Coming Soon and Polls.
It's with quite a lot of regret that today I'm announcing the finishing date for the Reboot, and by extension the series as a whole. That will be 4th December 2019. It was going to be same time next year, however circumstances have put it forward. At the moment I'm preparing the final big update. Whatever's finished for it will be the last episodes rebooted. I'll likely still update the site to fix things, upload Re-Reads and maybe continue converting episodes into a downloadable format.
The series has been technically finished for years, and I've rebooted the majority of what I wanted to. My regret is stopping in the middle of Season Two. The series will be 19 years old on that date, and while I haven't been writing it nonstop 19 years, it has been my life for that entire time. I was 15 when I started, I'm 34 now. It's time to move on. The site will remain online; it isn't an expensive site and my good friend hosts it for me. If you're new here, there's plenty of content and as mentioned, the series is complete, so please stick around. All I was doing was sprucing up episodes I wrote when I was a dumb teen, which I had a problem with and no one (that I know of) else did, so the entire series can be read from start to finish with no issue.
Reboot Season Two, Episode 11: Kiss of Death
Coming Soon updated.
"YWF" has been added to "Marill Re-Reads Season Two". The home page for Season One's has been fixed (and renamed to avoid that same error again).
The usual History pages have been updated; Episode Log, Episode Sizes with both KOD and Resurrection.
Reboot Season Two Special: The Resurrection
"Cause & Effect" has been added to "Marill Re-Reads Season Two".
Hi everyone or anyone. I thought I'd make a quick post to show I'm still alive (booo!) and briefly explain the absence. First I should mention that The Resurrection is near ready and has been for a while, so near that I'm very angry at myself for letting so much time pass. So, what's going on? The last few weeks, month, I haven't kept track, my hands have been in agony for some unknown reason. They're still achey typing this so at least I won't ramble for very long, but I'm hopeful that I'm on the mend. I only had one scene to finish typing from my notes and another (the final scene) to simply edit into the file. I am going to have an attempt tonight, but I don't see me using a keyboard for very long as I can feel the pain returning.
Here's the thing though. If this is a permanent problem like I fear, and believe me that's a huge ass fear I have, then I've decided that I'll end the reboot, finally finishing the series as it is, after Resurrection's release anyway. Which will mean The Resurrection and Kiss of Death would be the new>old transition part of the series, which I'm slightly ok with if I ignore The Slayers... and Halloween's existence. I'd prefer to continue to my planned finish date next year, but with my work, the dream of actually doing a novel, and all my other hobbies, I need my hands. FV is finished technically so it wouldn't be as bad as I keep thinking.
So I wrote more than I thought and my hands/wrists are killing me. Hopefully I'll see you soon with the next episode. I just hope it won't be the last update with an episode attached.
Precise Timings for some time was an easy reboot. Not that there was much of the original to simply edit instead of rewrite, ohgodno, but because I've always quite liked it. However I got to the ending and had no idea what to do with it. I'm still not entirely sure about it. Its original ending was pretty abrupt even more me and a bit of a downer, so I badly wanted to end it elsewhere. Trouble is there is nowhere else to end it, except similarly to the original episode, which I didn't want. Oh well, I'm happy enough to release it (again) ha.
Reboot Season Two, Episode 10: Precise Timings
Coming Soon up to date.
"The Curse of Voyager" has been added to "Marill Re-Reads Season Two". I'd better slow down with these, I'm starting to catch up to the ones I've written.
The usual History pages have been updated; Episode Log, Episode Sizes.
It's been a while, as well as a weird couple of months. Long story short, I haven't had much time since my last update to do much. Today I finally have some content to release, so take a look;
Reboot Season Two, Episode 09: F9: Control Failure
Reboot B4FV Season One, Episode 10: Emanations
Reboot B4FV Season One, Episode 13: State of Flux
Reboot B4FV Season One, Episode 21: The 2003's
Coming Soon has all the updated info on what else I've been up to that I haven't finished yet.
"Halloween" has been added to "Marill Re-Reads Season Two".
The usual History pages have been updated; Episode Log, Episode Sizes.
A new banner for Precise Timings (and Resurrection) have been made.
New "Episode Battle" polls have replaced the previous ones.
The original "F9: Control Failure" is a chore and a half to fix, so I'm afraid it'll be a little while longer before it's ready. In the meantime, I've been busy elsewhere to try and make up for it:
Reboot B4FV Season One, Episode 09: Ex Post Facto
Reboot B4FV Season One, Episode 12: Prime Factors
Reboot B4FV Season One, Episode 20: Paris Camera
"True Q" has been added to "Marill Re-Reads Season Two".
"Bittersweet" is finally in the Episode Sizes ranking.
Reboot B4FV Season One's information page has been updated since I've (temporarily) restarted working on it.
A few errors like typos and missing words in recent reboots have been fixed. The biggest one being Saturday Night's "Naomi" leftover from the original. If you don't know what I mean then, yey no one spotted it :P
Another reboot joins the ranks and thankfully this one isn't anywhere near as big. The next one might be a bit trickier to fix than this one, just thought I'd warn you. I may go through the mammoth sized Bittersweet inbetween the two. I thought if I do cut that one down A LOT, I'll keep the full version available as a PDF. If only a scene or two goes, they'll go in the Deleted Scenes section, simples.
Reboot Season Two, Episode 08: Saturday Night
"The Slayers" has been added to "Marill Re-Reads Season Two".
The usual haunts Episode Sizes and Log are up to date.
Resistance's link in the episode archive has been fixed... again. I swear I already did this last year.
A very belated happy new year everybody. I start the year by releasing the not planned third part of "Xmas holiday episode" Bittersweet many weeks too late. Oh well. Due to my work place getting a little bit strict, I now only scribble in a notebook sometimes while I'm there, when people aren't looking over my shoulder anyway, and type it up on evenings when I'm not too tired/sick. So yeah, until I get into a better routine, it's gonna be slow(er) for a bit. It doesn't help that Bittersweet's a bloated word count heffer. I hope my next project Saturday Night is as light and easy as I think.
Anyways, today I have a few things to update the site with, check 'em out below.
Reboot Season Two, Episode 19: Bittersweet (Part 3)
"Kiss of Death" has been added to "Marill Re-Reads Season Two".
History has a new page for the dreadful parodies of songs I like to bloat episodes with... she says on Bittersweet's finished date, ahem. Note: I have not updated the Episode Sizes section as I'm torn about Bittersweet's ridiculous length.
In the Episode Archive I'm testing out a possible new "feature". I know despite my attempts that the site's still not very mobile friendly, but another problem revolving around its lack of mobile-ness has been bothering me just as long which I haven't tried to fix. It's some feedback I was given a good long while ago, which is extra relevant now that there's a few three parter episodes, and some long solos. There's no way to keep track of a story you've not yet finished; the files are usually not divided, there's no chapter links (anymore), and I repeat 99% of episodes are huge now. I had thought about converting the episodes into a PDF format, far more suitable for tablets and phones. I mean it's not something that's too difficult, only time consuming. I've chosen Reboot Aggression as the guinea pig for this. Obviously I have no clue if this'll be any good for anyone, but it's no harm done. I'll be testing it some more, since I've already tested it behind the scenes. If it works how I want it, I'll steadily release the rest of One. After that it'll be Season Four, Five, B4FV2 & 3, since they're considered done and dusted already.
