All good things must come to an end. This is the final post in my three-part series that discusses all of my Jimmy Neutron fanfiction stories. I have to warn you all, there’s about to be a huge tonal shift in this last post.
Even bigger than when Hooky shifted from romantic comedy to a war against terrorists.
In Part I, you saw me quiver with rage as I looked over my worst and earliest stuff.
In Part II, you watched me spot some glimmers of talent in my fanfic cesspool, but still be mostly disgusted with myself.
Now, you’re going to read about my last nine stories; the ones that I actually like. The first two (Stealing My Heart & The Final Battle) were before my five year-hiatus. This means that my general writing skills weren’t up to par and they have plenty of flaws, which I’ll discuss below. But after that? The final seven stories reflect my current writing ability. It’s true that these stories didn’t have thorough editing passes, but they still pretty much showcase the level I’m at right now. Continue reading On All My Fanfics (Part III)
You know that old adage, “Write for you, not for anyone else?” Well this post is taking that concept and ramping it up to 11. I’ve written before, numerous times, about how much Jimmy Neutron means to me and why I began my writing career with dozens of Jimmy Neutron fanfiction stories. I’ve hinted at my previous works, but never explained them in depth. That all changes today.
I am going to go over every single one of my Jimmy Neutron stories, from the ones I love to those I completely regret. I’ll go in chronological order, starting all the way back in July 2005. I’ll show my favorite moment from each story (or in some cases, the absolute worst), go over what I wanted to accomplish with each piece, what it taught me, and just whatever else I can remember about it.
I often look over my favorite fanfics when I want to read something for a few moments, but some of these I haven’t really looked through in years. So prepare to get my honest appraisal of all my works. I truly, truly hope that this post is interesting to whoever reads it. I’ll do my best to at least ramp up the humor in this post while keeping it honest; I can at least give my readers that.
