|Welcome, one and all! I'm ChromastoneandTabby, AKA CaT, and this here is my new submission to Fanon Con! We've got some interesting stuff to go over, so let's get to it!
Tech 10: Star Spirit
Tech 10: Star Spirit's third season is...still not coming for a while. I have a lot of other projects I want to focus on first. Since this will be the last season, I want everything related to Earth-83 squared away before I start on this. In addition, this is the last season of Tech 10...well, ever, and I want to make sure not only that everything goes to plan, but that said plan is actually good. On the bright side, this gives anyone lagging behind a good chance to catch up on the series.
You might remember the Elegy forms I announced at the last Fanon Con, and while they're still going to be in the series, I have a bit of a different plan for their execution than I talked about last time. Saying any more than that would give away like half of S3's plot, so I'll leave it fairly vague. For now, let it just be known that they have a lot to do with Kunenga Energy.
This is still progressing, slowly but surely. I actually introduced a new villain exclusive to the Renovated version of the series, along with foreshadowing to the overall arc of what's seemed like filler content so far. Things are going to get a lot more complex from here on out.
Tech 10 Character Shorts
I did manage to get Warlord Kroz's character short out between cons, so go check that out. I still plan on releasing character shorts for Igneoux and Aquadilus, but those might not be coming for a while.
Progress on the second episode of 13 is continuing, albeit incredibly slowly. I have the entire outline for the thing written up, I just haven't found the motivation to turn it into the actual written format yet.
IT'S STILL NOT GOING TO BE LIKE WACKY RACERS YOU ASSCLOWNS
Still working on this one. I'd like to have it mostly planned out before episodes start happening, unlike some other post-OV series (cough cough).
Hoo boy this thing.
Okay, so I announced some stuff about this series last Fanon Con.
Almost none of that stuff applies now.
Yes, I've been reworking the series over these past few months, and I've ultimately decided to go an almost completely different direction with it. The synopsis might sound similar, but the execution will be extremely different. It's still going to be an Earth-83 story with little to no story connections to Tech 10. The Omnitrix of the series is still called the Reform, and a couple of the characters and aliens are being carried over from the original concept. Here's the new synopsis that may or may not still apply by the time the series actually debuts:
The family of Tess, a 16 year-old girl, moves to an old coastal city that has recently undergone massive gentrification thanks to the efforts of a recently-disappeared eccentric billionaire. Once they arrive, they discover the area has become infamous lately for a rash of mysterious murders that result in gruesomely displayed corpses, a fact that the local media has attempted to cover up as best as possible.
Tess herself almost becomes a victim to one of these murders, but is saved by the mysterious appearance of an ancient artifact known only as the Reform. With the strange powers of the Reform and the help of a friend with unexplained abilities of his own, Tess must follow the trail of clues left behind by the missing billionaire to discover the ancient tragedy lurking beneath the city they live in, even as the city itself seems to be acting against them.
It gon be edgy as hell boyee
Aliens I can confirm as currently planned to appear in the series are as follows:
- Fishnu (Working title; I don't have an actual name for this one yet lmao)
- A jellyfish-like alien. It can fly, contort its tentacles into various shapes, and do other stuff I haven't pinned down quite yet.
- A humanoid alien with an armored robotic shell. It has the ability to fire blasts of superheated air at its targets.
- Cat Lap
- A cat-like humanoid alien. Though it appears to be a normal speed alien on the surface, it actually has the ability to control the velocity of any one object at a time.
- A humanoid alien with a starry appearance. It has the ability to create and manipulate stardust. Fairly straightforward.
A preview of the pilot for this series will be readable in the first episode of The Launch Pad, which should be out by the time the Main Blog has been posted. For this blog presentation, have this teaser trailer:
[The back of a large humanoid form is seen. The figure is hunched over, bleeding heavily and taking ragged breaths.]
[???]: "Never again."
[Cut to a dark stone hallway. A suited man whose features are obscured by shadows is walking down the hall, scraping a knife along the side of the walls as he goes.]
[Male Voice]: "Don't bother. This city won't let me die."
[???]: "What are you talking about?"
[Cut to a dimly lit hospital room, where a large humanoid alien stands above a severely injured man.]
[Injured Man]: "For whatever reason, this city doesn't want me dead. On the other hand...it very much doesn't want you alive."
[Cut to the middle of a highway, where a jellyfish-like alien is dodging and weaving through heavy traffic.]
[Injured Man]: "You're too close to the truth..."
[Cut to the outside of an ancient citadel sitting on the bottom of the ocean.]
[Injured Man]: "The truth behind the city itself."
[Cut to the inside of the citadel. A panning shot slowly begins moving through the ruins.]
[Injured Man]: "I don't remember my past...but...there is a name. A single name. A spirit you must avoid at all costs."
[The panning shot slowly moves to reveal a sealed door covered in various runes.]
[Injured Man]: "They called it...the Skinwalker."
[The shot fades to black. After a few moments, the sound of claws dragging against metal can be heard.]
[???]: "And the reign of man shall fall."
Cancelled. Cancelled. They're all canceled. None of you are free from sin.
Rebooted Cinematic Trilogy
Oh yeah, we're doing this now bois.
Those of you who keep an eye on the forums probably already know about this to some extent, but allow me to get more into how this is going to work. Basically, the idea is to give people who want to read Star Spirit but don't have the time to read two series worth of backstory beforehand a way to experience these stories in a convenient manner. Maybe then you little shits will actually READ TECH 10 REEEEEE
The recap movie for Not Applicable is being worked on, and will come out, first. This is because N/A takes place before Rebooted for the most part, making it only logical for it to be the first movie created in chronological order. Basically, expect a modernized retelling of the Not Applicable short with much better storytelling, more backstory, and a lot less filler.
This movie already has a decent amount of content created for it, so I recommend checking all that out on the official thread.
Phase 2: Tech 10: Reboot Ω
Tech 10: Reboot Omega (a title which will make sense if you've actually read Rebooted) will be a recap movie for the first season of Rebooted, serving the same modernizing/expanding/filler removing purposes of the Not Applicable recap movie.
Phase 3: Tech 10: Reboot Δ
Tech 10: Reboot Delta (which will make even more sense as a title than the last one to readers) will recap the second season of Rebooted, doing all that good stuff we talked about with the other two movies again.
Tech 10: Double Crossed
This movie will be released somehow at some point. I'm not sure of the exact format, but it will cap off the Renovation project. Probably
This is right under the Renovation project on my list of priorities, and will probably be done first, come to think of it. I have a couple scenes already written, but that's about it, so...yeah.
This is where anyone who cares enough about my work to give some input...gives some input! Here are some polls:
(P.S. If you take this one seriously you were probably dropped on your head as a baby. Twice.)
(P.P.S. That doesn't mean I ain't drawing lewds I'm just saying.)
Rebooted Cinematic Trilogy
That about finishes up my section for the con, and I hope you're looking forward to the new material! Have fun at the rest of the con, and have a good day!
