Where Have All The Heroes Gone: Forum
« on: August 29, 2014, 04:18:39 AM »
Thank you for reading my stories.  I hope that you have enjoyed them.  As of this writing SFD returns is a little more than half finished.  I have had a blast introducing you to Super Fire Dragon and his wit and wisdom.
SFD was one of my favorite toons from CoH.  He was created to be a willpower fire blaster or blanker I think they're called.  And he really did earn a toga.  I made it blue as a play on words, drag dragon.  That was pretty much when the silly began.

Anyway, the first story shows us life in Paragon City after the heroes have gone.  Who knew that the citizens hated or resented the supers so much.  Then the story twists and we see a new hero emerge.  I started this story after reading the penguin story.  I decided to steal the ignored love interest which couldn't go anywhere.

The second story continues from the first, but with a different cast of characters.  SFD is brought back as the name implies.  We get more details about characters' lives.  I like to tell the story in dialog.

Anyway, feel free to comment here and let me know what you think.

As always yours,  JohnG 736

Sorry that I have not wrote nothing for a while.
I guess I have been busy.
Will try to get back to it soon(tm).

Seriously, I haven't a clue.   HELP!

Rare Earth can't swim?
Ice Manix is Leroy Jenkins?
Super Fire Dragon was right?
Who is 'double-d'?

Wow, I can't wait for the next installment.

Wow, over 400 people have viewed and thoroughly enjoyed the "Where Have All The Heroes Gone" series.

Johng, 400 views doesn't mean 400 people.  As a matter of fact, you take about 3 views to add another installment.

Shut-up you.
And to the 400, I say grazie!

That was a labor of love.
I thought that it might be interesting to tell the story of Paragon City after the game shut down.  What is life like without supers running around loose.  We even saw that with the heroes all was not pleasant.  And picking SFD as a trainer is like having Mario Andretti teach driver's ed.
Writing this took me back to the game.  I even looked up stuff on the CoX wiki.  Thanks to whoever put that together.

Oh and yes, Mrs. Norris is the human form of the groundskeeper's cat from Harry Potter.
I did actually have a toon named Super Fire Dragon, but no Ice Manix or Rare Earth.

I'm thinking of taking a break for a while, always leave them wanting more, I have half an idea for the next one, but I'm not crazy about it.
If something better pops into my head, I will be back sooner rather than later.

Later!

This idea came to me and it is just too good.
Send a reformed hero to the Isles.  What could go wrong?

Sorry I don't write more.  The first two stories took a lot to write.  Both mentally, trying to make the story make sense and be interesting as well as physically, because I'm using an Android phone to write these.  Every once in a while the text editor loses its mind and sends my input up several lines.  And of course with such a small screen, writing can become an arduous choir.

So, Kolissa is up to no good.

This Red Side Story, (no pun intended) promises to be more interesting than the previous two.  Did somebody say, "How could it not be?". Was that you Brooks?

In case you were wondering, yes.
Red Side is the better idea I was waiting for.
The other idea was to follow Rare Earth, but I just didn't see a story there.

Fortunately, I see a few ways that this Red Side could go.
Obviously I can't have all out war, or could I.

Anyway, thanks again to the Paragon Wiki people.

Poor Kolissa.
I have wonder what Super Fire Dragon has in mind.

Kolissa is stuck.
She can't resume hero work, well not in jewelry stores that's for sure.
She had better not show up in the Rogue Isles, either.
She was perfectly happy before that mission.
But now what.

Author trait number 4178.
Yes, some times I make myself giggle if not laugh out loud.

That should explain a lot.

Yeah, it looks like one should read:
"Where Have All The Heroes Gone" then read:
"Where Have All The Heroes Gone: SFD Returns"
Before reading
"Where Have All The Heroes Gone: Red Side"
That way you understand Super Fire Dragon more and are introduced to all the characters.

By the way, I goofed.
I had Sgt. Billings, a Nemisis, talking to Lord Recluse of the Arachnos.

Maybe he's a double lackey.

Anyway, I promise to keep the mistakes to a minimum.
