mohamadalzo asked: I am the 600th reviewer of your Story Zat: The immortal Saiyan. So I guess you owe me a one shot story?
ZAT:Immortal Saiyan at 600 reviews! Wow, thanks for the reviews! I do owe you a one shot now! Give me some details on what you’d like in the story and I’ll get to work on it right away.
Thanks for all the encouragement, I appreciate it!
ZAT:RD Chapter 6 is posted!
Holy moly, chapter 6 to my ZAT: Reviving Dreams is finally up!
It took so much longer than I wanted it to. Between family drama and stuff with friends, I just couldn’t focus on getting this chapter out for a while. I ended maybe a little drunk while writing some parts of it too! But I’m glad it got done, closure was needed to this segment of ZAT, and I think it finishes on the feel good holiday note I was going for.
Thanks a lot to everyone who has supported the story along the way!
ZAT: Reviving Dreams Chapter 5
The next chapter to ZAT:RD is up at:
I’m really disappointed that I was late getting this chapter posted. I had wanted to actually post this chapter up on December 25th so it would have been the Christmas episode so to speak. Didn’t happen because of stuff but hopefully the holiday spirit will allow people to forgive me.
I really did enjoy writing this chapter. Right from the beginning I was trying to figure out what I was going to do with the typical bad guy henchman. It gets pretty obvious that I was watching Dragon Ball Z Abridged: Lord Slug recently. I thought it added a humorous touch which is needed in the story without Phips around. Then I ended up unintentionally pulling stuff from Soul Eater, realized what I was doing and decided, “Heck… if I’m gonna rip something off I’m going to do something cool with it!” And so the fight scene at the beginning of the chapter was born. From there I wanted to downplay the fighting. It’s not really the big to do in this story, I mean Gohan is in his prime here, being an insanely powerful and immortal guardian of the universe and all… So yeah…
My hope was to actually hit a few emotional pangs in readers with what happens, but still leave people feeling good at the end. That’s my idea of Christmas anyway. Everyone gets really moody and emotional, but at the end everyone eats a lot and feels pretty good.
I hope all your holidays were great, and thanks for reading!
What a New Year.
Hey everyone. My apologies for disappearing again even after I had popped back in and claimed I’d be making an update. I ended up coming home from my dad’s and then found out my mom was in the hospital about to go through emergency surgery. She’s fine but that had me preoccupied for a few days. Then I got back to work and found out one of my co-workers who I had trained died on the 6th. It’s been a rough start. I need to start doing things to get my mind on to better things so I should start taking some projects again.
To all my friends out there who I don’t talk to nearly as often as I should, I care about and love you all.
I’m about two minutes away from posting a new chapter to ZAT:RD and I’ll be back with that update in just a bit.
Home for the Holidays with Stupid Satellite ISPs
I hate having no Internet.
My apologies to everyone who was waiting for the update to ZAT:RD over Christmas. I’m just as disappointed that it wasn’t posted as anyone if not more.
What happened? Well it was the holidays, so of course holidays are always filled with families going psycho and screaming and yelling and throwing things all in the name of good will towards mankind. But I ended up going home for the holidays, which is out in a rural area of southern Arizona. My dad gad told me that he recently switched to a new ISP out in the area and finally had broadband instead of dial up (People still used dial up? Yes… afraid so…) through Blue Dish Satellite Internet.
Now I probably should have researched this company a bit once I got the name, but once again I trusted my parents to actually know what they were talking about seeing as they’re my parents. You would think I’d have realized parents don’t always know best by now, but I’m naïve like that. So when my dad told me had gotten a contract for the 7.5 Internet, I went along with him thinking he was talking about 7.5mbps download speed. I have a 25mbps package at my place, so 7.5 was slower, but I figured it was still a LOT nicer than their old 56k.
I was wrong…
It turned out their download speed is actually 1.5mbps and that the 7.5 referred to a monthly download cap in Gigabytes. With faster Internet my dad signed up for Netflix and was enjoying Youtube earlier in the month. Do you know how many Netflix streaming movies it takes to burn through 7.5 Gigabytes? Somewhere around ten!
So basically by the time I arrived on the 22nd, there was no Internet left for the month. Here it is the 2nd of January and the Internet meter has finally been refilled. We watched a few Netflix movies yesterday and the download allowance is already half used up it would seem. I can’t believe companies can still cap home Internet like this, it’s like the dark ages just twenty miles out of the next town. And what’s worse is that he pays more a month than my uncapped 25mbps Internet! And here I’ve been complaining that I want FIOS in town… From this holiday experience I’ve learned once again to feel fortunate for the things I have.
I’ll be back at my own place come Friday, so I’ll make my posts then. Sorry for the delays everyone. I hope all your holidays were wonderful, and wish you the very best for the New Year!
‘Till next time!
