McPoodle's Fan-Fiction

I've been trying my hand at fan-fiction since 1982. The following are all of my finished works that I think are worth preserving. As is common with a lot of other fan-fiction, you will find these stories nearly incomprehensible if you are not at least familiar with the series they are based on. I tend not to stick with any one series for very long, so hopefully that will increase the chances that at least one of these stories will appeal to you. Some of these stories have been published on, so click here if you want to read my stories with less formatting ;)

I have also posted fragments and notes for some stories I will probably never finish on their own page, in the hope that someone else might be able to do something with them.

Note: I've noted those stories that I posted under my previous pen name of "Newton".

Aaahh!!! Real Monsters

This was an animated series that played on the Nickelodeon Network in the early 1990's, about a trio of young monsters in a school for learning how to scare human beings. It doesn't have much of a presence on the Internet.

Chip 'n' Dale Rescue Rangers

This was an animated series that played on the Disney Channel and the syndicated Disney Afternoon block in the early 1990's, about a group of small animals that solved cases the police couldn't. The series has a quite respectable showing on the Internet.

Serial Experiments Lain

This was a limited series of thirteen half-hour animated episodes that played on late-night Japanese television in 1998, about a girl who investigates a series of disturbing events on an alternate-universe version of the Internet. This is definitely not for the same type of audience as the other series on this page (the DVD's have a 16+ warning label on them), but those willing to sit it through will be rewarded with one of the most thought-provoking (or thought-messing) experiences available on TV. The fandom for this series grew rapidly on the Internet, but sadly appears to be leveling off (it has played several times already on the cable channel TechTV).

There's a character in an old science fiction novel that reminded me a lot of Lain of the Wired--take a look here.

Back when I first started looking for Lain websites, I was disappointed that the only form of script available was a simple transcription of dialog, so I set out to write my own screenplays, starting with the subtitles and layering on descriptions of the visuals and sounds and including insights from the dub. As I was working on the script for layer 02, I finally discovered Cyberia Cafe and the detailed layer descriptions of TechTV's SEL site, so I stopped. The complete script for layer 01, though, can be found here. If someone actually finds this useful, perhaps I could be persuaded to continue on with the other layers.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic

This is an animated series on the Hub network that is still in production as of 2011. The series currently owns the Internet.

none of the above

This category is where the actual original fiction goes.
