A New Fanfic Coming Soon

Dani's kind comments about my fanfics inspired me to write another one, so I'm working on a new story I hope to finish soon: after trying for some time to come up with an OC, I think I may have hit upon something.

Just to give everyone a heads up, this story will be an AU (alternate universe) tail in which someone is sent to the 4077th to replace Radar (I know, sacreligious), since Klinger just can't get the hang of the job.

That sounds like a really good storyline! I have written about M*A*S*H in my writing at home, but I never posted anything on the internet. I'm more of a long-hand writer than a type-writer writer(haha).

I wish you luck, and please let us know where you post it at. <3

Okay, I haven't had a lot of time to work on my new fanfic, but I'm going to try and pick back up and see what I can do about maybe finishing it some time this week or something.

In the meantime, I can go ahead and share some of the basic info about my new OC with you guys to give you a better idea about him and who he is...

So here's my OC, and here's his basic info:

Name: Shadrach, Jason
Rank: Staff Sergeant
Home Town: Knoxville, Tennessee (hey, I'd like to see my home get some love in the M*A*S*H universe)
Serial Number: US84754918
Military Record: arrived in Korea with his squad from basic.
Data:
<list>
<li> Was assistant switchboard operator to Sparky
<li> Was a disc jockey in Knoxville
<li> Drafted
<li> Very bad aim with a rifle
</list>

Miscellaneous: Usually wears a highneck sweater
Vices: None that anybody knows of

Shadrach also has a tendency to be a slacker and a goldbrick, but is also rather sneaky and good at scrounging and dealing.

Well, I finally finished the new fic... there's just one big problem however... in order to properly introduce Shadrach, I basically had to rewrite the episode "Period of Adjustment" (8x06), so it's really not that great, but at any rate, here it is:

Really good story there, O'Reilly! I like it. I never seen a story made up of entire dialoge, I am one for long, sappy details, but that is what I special in because that is the only way I write. You are a great writer. <3

Hey everybody...

First of all, I just want to point out that I'm still gone, you know why, and because of you know who, however, I DID want to make an announcement that I'm getting ready to start work on a new fanfic featuring Shadrach - I want to be able to sort of work him into a story where he's really one of the gang, and show his interaction and relationships with the others in camp.

Not quite sure what I'm going to do just yet, but I'll let you guys know.

I liked it, O'Reilly! I've never read any fanfics in script form, because they're not allowed on fanfiction.net. And that's pretty much the only place I read M*A*S*H fanfiction. But I really enjoyed yours. I look forward to more stories about Shadrach; I'd definitely like to see his character fleshed out a bit more.

Thanks Bad Octopus (wicked name by the way XD).

Yes, it's really been a source of confusion, that's one of the reasons I was initially banned from FFN, for writing in script format (they didn't specify that it's the same as what they call "Interactive/chat format", which they don't allow); however, the first fanfics I ever read like ten years ago WERE written in script format, so to me, my concept of fanfics were essentially fan-written episodes.

But thanks again, I'm in the midsts of working on a new story with Shadrach right now, not sure when it'll be finished though, but I'll be sure to let everybody know.

Why, thank you! Your username makes me smile. "This one's for all you animals and music lovers!"

To me, it seems there's an obvious difference between script format and chat format. Namely, one is a legitimate form of writing, and is used in screenplays for both television and movies, and the other is, well... just plain annoying. :P

By the by, I'm a writer myself on fanfiction.net. You can check out my stories some time, if you like. One is an absolute monster - 220,000 words and counting. xD I don't know what I'm going to do with myself when it's finally finished.

I don't know as to agree, or disagree here, but good luck.
Anyway, got to work on "RADAR VS. THE GREMLINS" hopefully due out in original stories in the coming months.

Dude, if you can't comment on the story that I worked on, then would you please refrain from posting in this thread?
