It's more like a bowling ball return mechanism...or a self-loading tennis ball thrower...

Count Du Money sat at the bar, bragging to Edwards when the two children arrived.

Gretel: "Mr. Du Money?" :D

Du Money: "That's Count dear."

At this point Edwards and everyone else in the bar climbed out the bathroom window... At the same time...

Hansel: "Anyway, Tenchi and Shinji hired us." :twisted:

Gretel: "They said you're to know fear..." :D

Hansel: "Then you're to know pain." :twisted:

Hansel & Gretel: "Then, we get to decide when you die." :demon:

OK. This is a real deal which I'm being working on for the past years. Given that current classic Robotech hung in the balance (with IP for SDF Macross / SDC Southern Cross / GC Mospeada slated to end / revised in 2021) or basically stands to be rebooted, and of course with Palladium losing the rights to Robotech RPG .... it is maybe hightime for fans to takeover the reins in expanding RT-verse, non-canonical ofcourse.

It is a daunting task, for me its more about how to incorporate several elements of RIFTS, 3 Galaxies and adapting the greater whole of SDC Orguss / Macross 0 / Macross II universe ported over to classic Robotech. Quite expansive endeavors.

Adaptation of Macross 0 basically to pad the Global Civil War - AUL connection on the early parts of Robotech: Macross Saga, RIFTS basically a part where UEEF marked its space colonisation projects and to pad Sentinels timeline, SDC Orguss is an attempt to introduced new Sentinel races while Macross II is basically covered classic Robotech Timeline from 2060ish - 2090s (yes, I am inclined to continue classic Robotech into Macross II verse).

On the issue of adaptation of 3 Galaxies, well its more of introducing elements of the aborted Robotech 3000 and turn it into a massive colonization efforts by combined UEG (Earth) - Allied Zentraedi - Tyrol - Praxis - Emaan (from Orguss) - Invid Solugi and Sentinels Confederation forces to explore new galaxies and the after effects of Robotechnology on the 3 Galaxies' socio-political scene once the colonisation Robotech armada arrived in-situ. Its scenario is more or less like Mass Effect: Andromeda kinda adventure.

I might opened a thread based on each scenario. Just feel the need to share this with you guys.

Go for it. I value enthusiasm and hard work fandom, especially when somebody has an idea, develops it, and does it up proper.

"In all your years of being a mecha pilot for the UEsG, Commander Langley, what was your most difficult mission?"
"Oddly enough, it was a giant flying vulture creature from an anti-matter galaxy."
"Indeed? How was it difficult?"
"Because it looked like it should have been easy. Go in , wait for the thing to show up and attack, and blast it out of the sky. Didn't help that the thing was the GOOFIEST-looking monster anybody had ever seen and had a ridiculous screech. Might have mistaken it for a kids' parade balloon, it was so funny-looking, But that damned thing was bloodthirsty and going after anything that moved on land or in the air.
Thing is, it was normal matter, but it could call up a field of anti-matter particles that did all sorts of crazy things with normal matter and radiation. Radar deflected around it, so it had natural stealth, and missiles and bullets disintegrated upon contact."
"What about energy weapons?"
"Thought that would work at first, but no go. Though we only learned that AFTER losing several feet of armor off our Neo-Evangelions and our dignity, after we'd told the locals how we were going to deal with their big bird problem."
"But you did find a way around it, right? Absolute Terror Field?"
"Almost, but all that did was bounce the bird around. No, it was the locals coming up with an isotopic poison that temporarily shorted out the field like a disruptor, long enough for us to get through and TOUCH the buzzard. Once the anti-matter stopped zinging, that giant thing was surprisingly easy to kill; regular missiles finished it off. Eva-scale cannon would have been overkill. Thing went down in that Earth analogue's Long Island Sound mostly intact. You can still see the thing; they hauled it out of the water and built what has to be the largest preservative tank in history; the local New York City Museum of Natural History's rightly proud of their giant facility and the 'Giant Claw' exhibit. Go see for yourself."
"Thank you, Commander Langley, I just may do that."

"So what did you give the Alphans?"
"Only a do-it-yourself terraforming kit to supplement what they'd already reverse-engineered from various other sources, and enough Flower of Life seeds for a starting ecology. Nothing too overt; they'll think it's all just space detritus swept up on their lunar surface. They can do the rest."

Hey folks. Yes, by all rights this is a necropost. I am aware of this.

I just wanted to thank everyone here for inspiring me to actually try my hand at fanfic writing. Since April, I've managed to put down (and post on AO3) 160,000 words over two story arcs, with a third arc in the planning stages. I honestly couldn't have done it without being here to dip my toes in the waters. Thank you all so much for the insipiration.

Never heard of AO3 but I am interested into this story and would like some info on AO3, yes I know it's been some time since I was last here.

archiveofourown.org is the alternative to fanfiction.net. It's a lot less toxic in the reviewers than ffnet, and (for me, anyways) a lot easier to post material. It doesn't hurt that they have their own spellcheck, of which of word processor lacks.
My story series is entitled Harry Potter - World Traveller, in case you're interested.

You're most welcome. It's good to know our little garden boxes here have led to larger and more ambitious plantings.


It's good to have 'hotboxes' to test and hone your skills before going big, than to jump into fanfiction writing all-out and wiping out horribly. I've survived reading my share of bad and REALLY bad fanfiction that showed the writers thought it was actually easy to construct good fanfiction and not, as one writer put it "the simple matter of staring at a blank sheet of paper until blood starts running down your forehead".

The more that I think about it, the more I believe that Leonard would've mellowed out after meeting the EVA Pilots? Heck, he'd probably try and find a way to take them under his wing and teach them things.

I admit I used to think of him as the 'other baddy' of the Southern Cross arc because he looked like Vladimir Harkonen and seemed to enjoy gloating at screwing Emerson over.
The various extra media attached to Robotech have variously made him out to be at worst a xenophobic bigot saddled with obsessive ambition, a n ally of T.R, Edwards, and a glory0hungry Col, Blimp. Others have tried to moderate him as an angry career military man who seeks to control a world that's cost him so much(including family) and/or a misunderstood patriot who wasn't afraid to accept losses(this is part of why Ulysess S. Grant was arguably a better general than McClellan; theater was afraid for losing men and ultimately held out for a political solution late in the war, while Grant led his men to slaughter...but also victory). If Emerson had been in overall command of policy, Humanity likely would have lost the Second Robotech War thanks to his good intentions being no match for the Masters' treachery.

Leonard realistically is probably a bit of both; he wanted security for Earth, but also wasn't afraid of seizing the opportunity to advance his own fortunes. And while he by no means had a heart of gold, he wanted a disciplined military that did what it was supposed to do; fight.

In the Crossovers, I've downplayed Leonard's jerk-ness and given him an opportunity to be a hero by using his jerk strengths. Suddenly responsible for the security fo TWO Earths, he manages to pull strengths form both of them to save them both. And his political jerk-side allows him to spot Ikari Gendo's jerk-ness for what it is, and ultimately outmaneuver Gendo's own conspiracy web.

All I'm saying, Taalismn, is that I could see him feeling sorry for the kids (as a parent if we go by the books), then taking them under his "wings" and showing them how to deal with certain situations that would break a normal person. At least when it comes to situations that their adopted families hadn't thought of.

Well, having 'Godfather Anatole' would be a plus to the EVA pilots, and amuse his personal staff, especially when they get sent or pass on an obvious Child-related mission/request/order with no other objective than to make the Pilots' lives easier.

"Kristof, tell Senator Moran I'm unable to attend his little political fundraiser and public relations event. I'm working on matters of vital importance. And on that note, Kritof, has the cabin been reserved and secured for the weekend? I'm taking the Children fishing."
