kristensk: bingo! (sk bingo)
So, yes, it's a tiny update with a new oneshot from Tom Wilder and a new drabble (well, it's the last one I posted here) of mine. But, the SWAT Kats Fanfiction Archive has been updated!
kristensk: bingo! (sk bingo)
So, yes, the SWAT Kat Fanfic Archive has been updated! There are two new chapters of existing stories, and a couple new stories too. It's nice to see the Archive getting more attention lately.

And, I know things are starting to seem all-SWAT Kat, all the time around here, but I do have work for other fandoms going on in the background. In particular, my multi-chapter Ao no/Blue Exorcist project, "Split", which has some previews up on [livejournal.com profile] mindtwins.

I'd been meaning to do this ever since my epic marathon re-watch of SWAT Kats with [livejournal.com profile] mintysage. These are the things I learned or re-learned about SWAT Kats (and similar series) while watching:

- Much of the series is one giant tribute to 50's/60's sci-fi movies. And, that is awesome.

- MegaKat City was used to weird long before the series started. Sorcerers, four-eyed mutants, and lampreys large enough to duel Godzilla are no big surprise to anyone.

- In fact, the SK world is possibly a Death World with everything trying to kill its inhabitants given that the subway cars appear to be armored, the biochemical labs have permanent gun emplacements out front, nuclear reactors are guarded by small private armies, and even cars from the space center have guns in the back. And, all of this is completely necessary and, in fact, usually not enough.

- All civilian she-kats know Blunt Object Judo. Given they live in a Death World, being able to use anything as a weapon is only sensible.

- Mutation invariably leads to megalomania or heroics.

- You know any scientist going on about, "THOSE FOOLS!" is bad news.

- For that matter, calling people, "Fools!" is a sure sign of evil in general. Note how being evil caused the Dark SWAT Kats to pick up the habit.

- Every series/movie that introduces a cute robot is apparently contractually obligated to destroy it. *sobs* Why?! Cybertron, Johnny Five, the Iron Giant, what did they ever do to you people?!

And, some additional gabble:

- There is some seriously amazing animation in SK. Particularly in the test flight sequence from "Night of the Dark Kat" and the entirety of "The Deadly Pyramid" and "Unlikely Alloys".

- The two Enforcers who find the PastMaster and his undead minions at the opening of "The PastMaster Always Rings Twice" are surprisingly witty, tossing off a one-liners like, "You have the right to remain buried," and actually looking cool doing it. Did the Enforcers become identical drones in later episodes to make their deaths more palatable? (Goodness knows episodes like "The Ci-Kat-A" certainly imply that they killed off quite a few.)

- I'm pretty sure half of the extras with speaking parts are Charlie Adler and the other half are Jim Cummings. And, I approve this.

- Razor's "Mondo mummies from Ragsville" comment is epically 90's. Which means I love it.

- The world needs more giant mummies wielding laser guns.

- Any "return of Zed" storyline really, really needs to be titled "The Heart of Zed".

Now I'm going to go poke at some of the fanfic ideas this has given me. Possibly including "The Heart of Zed", but don't hold me to that one.

Oh, and, speaking of which, the SK Fanfic Archive saw a tiny update on April 25 with the start of a new story by new author LadyDaisys.

First update of 2017 for the SWAT Kat Fanfic Archive! It's a small one with just two oneshots, but there you go.

Also, while I'm making SWAT Kat chatter, I'd completely forgotten to mention, but the ever-amazing [livejournal.com profile] modad sent me a copy of the rumored SWAT Kat poster. In reality, it's a two page spread from the Daily Variety trade magazine, which was published in an over-sized format. It's about the size of the small posters you used to find in magazines or some of the anime posters I've received with DVD's, but it's not a true poster. All the same, it's a fascinating little piece of SWAT Kat history. Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] modad!

So, yes! The SWAT Kat Fanfiction Archive has been updated! There's one new story and new chapters for four others. Also, as you may notice, the site has been fully re-designed and re-uploaded as well. So, please let me know if you find any problems or anything missing.
kristensk: SWAT Kats rushing to action (sk let's rock)
Yes, the SWAT Kat Fan Art Page really is seeing another update so soon after the last one! This time, there's seven new pieces from Kooshmeister, who is new to the Fan Art Page but a longtime fan.

And, after undergoing a bit of an overhaul, the SWAT Kat Fanfiction Archive should be seeing an update soon as well.

And, yes, I'm also busily working on my yearly Christmas image. So long as some hard-to-draw hands work with me, it should be done on time. (When did I get used to drawing five fingers instead of four?! ...Wait, that's probably a good thing. Right?)
kristensk: bingo! (sk bingo)
So, thanks to MoDaD from the SWAT Kats Encyclopedia, the SK Fanfic Archive is back up and running and even updated! MoDaD, you are seriously awesome. Again, thank you so much.

And, in other happy news, there's a remake of my childhood favorite "Voltron" coming to Netflix in June, and it looks amazing. Seriously, this trailer has me really excited. The character designs are nicely updated but recognizable, Voltron looks great, and the snappy dialogue is fun. It helps that, when I last saw "Voltron" as an adult, I found the original dialogue more than a little painful, so an update there is most welcome. I'm really looking forward to this!

...Although, am I the only one who thinks Pidge says he's been, "scanning the system and picking up alien Radio Shack"?

The SWAT Kat Fanfic Archive is temporarily offline as the hosting plan I had for the site was discontinued. Presumably, I was sent an email notifying me of this in advance, but I never received it. I don't know if it ended up in a spam folder or what. I'm currently trying to sort out the problem and see what can be done.
kristensk: snow-covered trees (let it snow)
It snowed! And, it was glorious. Hot chocolate and wondermous homemade tomato soup were consumed, blankets were snuggled into, and not much got done.

But, having finally gotten some entries, I did update the SWAT Kat Fanfiction Archive with one new oneshot and the first two chapters of a new ongoing story.

Also, in the spirit of snowy days, I made two snow-themed Ao no/Blue Exorcist icons using the latest color manga image:

Yes, I've finally been able to update both of my SWAT Kat archive sites!

First, the SWAT Kats Fanfiction Archive has four new chapters of an ongoing series by Sage and a new oneshot from Tom Wilder. Then, the SWAT Kat Fan Art Page has a new piece from Lowdog.

It's update season! Yes, the SWAT Kats Fanfiction Archive has now been updated as well. There's one new, complete oneshot as well as a new installment for an ongoing shorts series.

...And, just as a personal aside, I think it's awesome that the new oneshot is, of all things, a Fullmetal Alchemist crossover/fusion!
kristensk: SWAT Kats rushing to action (sk let's rock)
Yes, the SWAT Kats Fanfiction Archive has been updated! There's two new chapters for an ongoing story and the start of two new multi-chapter works as well.
kristensk: bingo! (sk bingo)
After another long, long period of inactivity, the SWAT Kats Fanfiction Archive has been updated! There's one new, complete oneshot as well as the beginning of a new multi-chapter story.
kristensk: SWAT Kats rushing to action (sk let's rock)
And, the SWAT Kats Fanfiction Archive has been updated again! There are two new chapters of Etherweil's Jaded Reflections, which seems to only need some wrap-up to bring it to an end, and I tossed up a couple drabbles of my own that I hadn't posted to the Archive previously.
kristensk: bingo! (sk bingo)
Yes, the SWAT Kats Fanfiction Archive has seen an update at last! Another older fanfic has been revived with a new chapter, and there's a new drabble up too.
kristensk: bingo! (sk bingo)
Yes, the SWAT Kats Fanfiction Archive has come out of its dry spell and seen an update. There are two new, complete oneshots now posted for your reading pleasure.

As for art, I've been working on re-doing my old image of London!Ed. Here's the current linework. I think it's a definite improvement, but I'm not sure if it's quite there yet. Any suggestions are welcomed.
kristensk: Inuyasha's tweakable ears (tweak)
The SWAT Kats Fanfiction Archive has been pretty active lately. This month, there's the start of a new story, plus updates for two more older ones. It's always nice to be able to check a story "in-progress" instead of "unfinished".

And, my bit of squee is the very belated realization that a new, stand-alone chapter of Inuyasha (often listed as chapter 559) was published last year. Apparently, it was made as part of a project called "Hero's Comeback" where the publisher releases new content from various retired series. I approve of this idea!

The chapter was a lot of fun. Nothing mind-blowing being just a short adventure, but it was great to see old favorites again. Especially since Takahashi worked in a moment for everyone. The best parts were definitely Kohaku's reaction when Sango handed off babysitting duties so she could join the fight, Sesshoumaru wordlessly showing up to protect Rin... while ignoring everyone else, and Kaede getting to show off her skills.

(Now, if Takahashi could have just left out the tired old "joke" of Inuyasha and Kagome fighting over something related to Kikyou. Kikyou's dead twice over, and the gag needs to die with her.)

Also, it's somewhat weird to me that I now have a "Rin" in two fandoms... and one's a little girl while the other is a teenage boy.

Yes, the SWAT Kats Fanfiction Archive has been updated again. On time! Even better, this update includes one new story as well as new chapters for two older stories rescued from inactivity.
kristensk: bingo! (sk bingo)
Yes, the SWAT Kats Fanfiction Archive is finally updated! The update features one new oneshot, the first chapter of a new story, and the final chapters of an old one.

....And, hopefully, the Yahoo! Groups notice on the update will go out properly. There's no sign of it in my inbox yet, and I usually receive it in just a few minutes. But, the site seems to be slow tonight in general.

Yes, the SWAT Kats Fanfiction Archive has been updated! Not a big update, but there's one new fanfic and some new chapters for an older one.

Happy reading!
