TARZAN

I know I owe you several chapters (hides head), but I was excited to see the Legend of Tarzan teaser trailer!

Interestingly, while there’s been positive comments, there has been a lot of complaints about it not being Disney, that he doesn’t have dreads, and that he’s not wearing the famous loin cloth.   The trailer clearly shows  Tarzan in pants….clothes that he’s wearing since he’s been out of the jungle for 10 years living in England.  However, the trailer also shows some very quick glimpses of a “pre-England, pre-Jane” Tarzan.

You can see that he does, indeed, have dreads since combing his hair everyday was not part of his habit and it looks like he is wearing something very minimal.  Did I say very minimal….well, I swear I see a lot of hip and leg. 🙂  It also shows him moving on all fours.

Personally, I’m fine without the loin cloth since it makes sense with the story they’re telling, but it seems to be a huge point of contention for some. Anyway, I hope once it’s revealed that there may be something “loin cloth-like”, people can let that go.

I’m posting the screen caps here. Hope you all are having a wonderful holiday!

Sorry, it’s been so long…

This post isn’t a new chapter of an existing story…so sorry.  This is a chapter based on a request by MyCelebrityFantasy on tumblr.  It struck me and I felt compelled to write something.

I hope to work on my other two stories soon, especially now that I’ve written something after so long.  As happens with many writers, real life takes a hold and writing takes a back seat.  It’s been a bit of a tough time, so many thanks to those folks who have stuck around.

Here’a link for those who are interested. 🙂

Thank you!

I wanted to thank everyone who’s taken the time to read my story.  I hope you’re enjoying it. 🙂  I have been posting as soon as I’ve finished writing a chapter and, even though I try to proof-read, I’ve noticed some typos have managed to get through.  Funny how you can so easily see them a few days later. 😦

In order to spare myself the embarrassment of the simple typos and possibly catch any continuity issues, I’ve decided I will try to post once a week.  That would give me time to continue writing, but also gain some distance from a chapter before I post it and hopefully, have more effective proof-reading. It will also allow me to go back and read what I’ve written to maintain some consistency.  This is my first story, so I’m learning as I go and I didn’t realize how easy it is to overlook a line written a few chapters earlier that contradicts a new line later on.  Ugh…the joys of learning “on-the-job”.  However, if I can post every couple of days and still do the same, I will.

Once again, thanks for reading and for your kindness.  Take good care!

Hi There!

I’m trying my hand at writing a little Eric and Sookie fanfiction.  If you happen to stop by, I hope you’ll take a moment to let me know what you think, both positive and negative — anything constructive will do.

Even though SVM and TB both ended with a sour taste in my mouth, I do thank their creators for the wonderful characters and worlds they created. I hope they don’t mind me borrowing them. (well I know one of them does….sorry) 😉

Thanks for visiting!
