Re: TBBS Fanfic Recommendations

Many thanks, Whoa Nellie. Though I feel that the 'Pun-ishment' series is less recommended than inflicted.

My list is less long than perhaps it should be, not out of ego, but for time constraints. I have so many stories I have to finish, including this one about a realllly big dragon.....

One constraint on recommends--its so hard for we unpaid authors to actually complete the ambitious plans we lay down. It takes a concerted effort, and most any little RL event can put paid to that.

Re: TBBS Fanfic Recommendations

Perhaps if we can remind people that the whole forum is a place to showcase your own work, and this thread is a small space for fanfic writer to recommend what they read of other people's work.

Thank you.

Neither Naraht nor Scatter are moderators. If RevdKathy has any objections to our behavior, we would certainly respect her authority, but as we've already pointed out, we're not the first, second, third or even fourth individual to mention our own work. We're also not the last.

Manager of the board here.

You most definitely need to cut back on the self-promotion. I went through a good number of your threads and almost without fail, the topic was:

"Read our fan fic! It's great! We won some online award!"

Now I don't have a problem with some self-promotion, it's only logical that fan-fic authors want others to read their stuff.

But you're overdoing it. Big time.

And by the way, account sharing is against the BBS rules. I would suggest that you drop the royal "We" while you're at it.

Re: TBBS Fanfic Recommendations

Uh don't wanna be a downer before I make my suggestions but in the very first thread Naraht's links don't seem to be working. They load which I assume is supposed to be a TrekBBS FanFic thread but there is a message saying it can't be found or some such. Just thought I'd point that out becuase I'd really like to check out a couple of the suggestions listed there.

Oh and I nearly forgot...but if anyone can track down the link, or maybe you can ask him to email it to you, but Ptrope's "Endeavour"(his version of Enterprise) is an excellent read and IMHO the way the show should've been written. It's not finsihed yet but well worth the read.

Admiral Young

Anyways I would like to second the suggestions of Emperor Tiberius, Naraht, Gjob there work is some of the finest. Along with a former member named Krag(I think that was his name, he wrote a bunch of excellent mirror universe type stories and did a awesome Dominion/Borg War story as well a couple years ago. There was a poster here that had a story called "Epilogue" that was like an extra hour of "Endgame" it basicly just wrapped up what we didn't seem to get on screen. If anyone can remember the thread...please post it.

Re: TBBS Fanfic Recommendations

I suspect that the threads that I originally linked to have now been pruned from the board. Thankfully, though, the writers concerned have posted their stories on the internet. So I will re-iterate my very strong recommendations for:

Star Trek: Lazarus by Focus Abbey

Orders of Magnitude by John Z. Drake

EDIT: Oh, and thanks for the nod my way, Admiral Young.

www.ussliberty.net is by Joseph Manno, and shows the adventures of one Captain Mantovanni, commander of the third Sovereign-class starship. A large and well-developed cast of characters make the era of the Dominion War and just beyond come alive.

ooh... this does sound interesting! Thanks for the recommendation

Re: TBBS Fanfic Recommendations

Fanfic recs? Let's see...

TNG: I'd add Naraht, but she's been added, several times . Another great TNG writer is the author of the mammoth Echoes, still ongoing at ASC...

Truth is, I've read so much now that I'm suffering from it-all-runs-together-itis.

Voyager:
MC Moose- superb Janeway characterisation. (see ASC Archives)
Kira 47 on Fanfic.net- shippy, but beautifully written.
Kerry's 'Voyager Days' series. This is mostly J/C, but friendship rather than romance, and they're very funny- may be accessible through J/CVille. (oh dear. I think I'm going to crawl under a nice rock now, having declared myself to be a thorough shipper..)

Just realised I've actually recommended more VOY than TNG, even though TNG is my first Trek love! I suppose I'm more critical now; with a lot of the TNG/P/C stuff I was thinking, 'whoo hoo! free stuff to read and lots of it' and as long as the SPAG/GAPS was ok, I read it. Often regretted it too.

Re: TBBS Fanfic Recommendations

Where could I find the fanfic Echoes ? I googled it and tried to find it, to no avail. Any idea who the author is?

Thanks!

There's a story called Echoes in the Trekiverse archive by an author called Ke Roth. Is that the one you want? I Googled Trekiverse Echoes and it got me to this page.

Ke Roth's Echoes can be found collected right here. It's a little easier to handle than the Trekiverse version.

Happy reading; it really is a marvelous novel.

Re: TBBS Fanfic Recommendations

We've already said that this thead is not for recommending one's own fic, Hammer. Please stick to that.

As for your story, I consulted with T'Bonz, and she agreed with me it was fanfic. If you wanted it posted elsewhere, perhaps you should have posted it there in the first place: but it would have been moved.
