So I found this picture buried in my DA

Ah, 2008.

My writing may've been crap back then but I was at least prolific, that's about....46 chapters done in half a year

Granted, they were all crap and short but.....I mean hell, the original Melting Statues finished in TWO MONTHS

Just a fun thing.

Fuck it, I'm done

(Honestly I'm half tempted to ignore my last journal and return to fanfiction, just to do my DC and Marvel "reboots" so at least someone will be doing a decent universe for the two...

Maybe I'll do this one idea I had where I would do brief snippets of each one [One for the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s of each universe, as well as one set in the pre-1940s and one in post-1990s] Who knows)

So I write this with a heavy heart and after a long time of reflection on where I want to go with my life and my career.  I do not mean this lightly and this is a hard thing for me to do but I believe that it for the best.

I, Jon Jarocki, will, for the time being, no longer be writing fanfiction

(Not that I did much anyway)

I know most of you don't care and at least one of you is pissed he's the only one writing stuff in the two major universes.  However I believe this is for the best.  Fanfiction was not going to help my writing career except in improving my writing which I can do in original works.  Also it was driving me insane.  As some of you may have noticed, I'm a stickler for details, a perfectionist, and a grand scheme kind of guy.   This is the reason it takes me so long to write fanfiction because I have to make sure that it does not contradict ANYTHING ELSE in the universe.  

I've known you guys since I was 17 years old.  I am now 24.  In that time, I have joined the Army, got discharged on medical, muttered about, failed out of college, tried to kill myself on multiple occasions and dated five separate people. 

I also went nuts trying to figure how to fix the major flaws in my characters I created as a teenager despite said flaws becoming canon, made an OC for a show I hadn't actually watched yet at that point, and tried to reboot the Marvel and DC universes single-handedly and learned why I shouldn't.

I want to write for a living.  I know Brian also wants to do that, and I'm under the impression that Gale also wishes to do that, albeit under a different medium.  I have no idea what Dude and Mal plan on doing in the future.     Thus I need to work on my original work without worrying about whether or not having Constantine show up two decades earlier fucks up the character.    

I'm not leaving DA or you guys, I'm just leaving fanfiction and I'm sorry.  It'll all work out for the best, you see.

So this is goodbye, fan-fiction, it's been a fun ride.   

Don't worry though, my characters aren't going anyway.   There will be versions of Alex and Vincent and and Reiji and Sweeney and Tyler and Joan and all the others.

That is alll

So a long time ago I came up with what I thought would be the correct rings of the Lantern Corps would be for each of us.  However, at the time, I was basing it on limited knowledge of the different corps and what not would be, so this time I decided to use an online quiz to decide for me.

Specifically this one,…

So let's see... I got...


"Jonathan Jarocki, you have the ability to overcome great fear. Welcome to the Green Lantern Corps."

"In brightest day, in blackest night,
No evil shall escape my sight.
Let those who worship evil's might,
Beware my power...
Green Lantern's Light!"

You belong to the Green Lantern Corps, the legendary protectors of the universe! The Green Lanterns use the power of will, the balance point of the emotional spectrum. They desire peace, justice, and equality throughout the universe.

Wonder what you guys got?

So here's the deal, in April, DC Comics will be moving to Burbank, California.   As such, they are doing a very interesting event, the basic premise is this

Set on a world outside time and space, Brainiac has used his access to Vanishing Point to roam the history of the DC Universe.. Using it to abduct heroes from different lost and defunct eras (pre-Flashpoint, pre-Zero Hour and pre-Crisis On Infinite Earths) and across the multiverse, Brainiac amasses a collection of 40 cities. Taking them to this mysterious world within domes (very much like the one that he has kept the city of Kandor of Krypton in over DC publication history) he opens them to see what happens. The ensuing chaos pits various DC heroes and villains and their historic or multiverse counterparts against each other as a villain known as Telos arises to take advantage of it all.

So the stories would follow various heroes from DC's history, including alternate worlds, in a giant clash of various characters.  As such, DC is releasing various comics all focused on these heroes.

All of these pre-Nu52 heroes. 

So, let's look at what we got, or at least the ones I find interesting

So in order from top to bottom, we got Knightfall-era Azbats, Justice League Detroit, 1980s Teen Titans, Pre-Crisis Earth-4 Blue Beetle, Pre-Crisis Earth X, Pre-Crisis Earth 2 Dick Grayson and Helena Wayne, Pre-Crisis Earth 2 Justice Society, and Pre-Flashpoint Titans

So while the first several are ones I'm interested in due to being a fan of those incarnations of the characters (or in regards to Earth X, just because I like the idea of a bunch of superheroes led by Uncle Sam fighting Nazis.  Also Plastic Man, can never go wrong with Plastic Man), but the last one is interesting because of the description.

Look, I don't care for what the years have done to Roy Harper and since this is weird robot arm Roy, then this is clearly after all that shit in Cry For Justice and Rise Of Arsenal.  However, this is the description

Starfire and Donna Troy come to get Roy Harper who has gone into seclusion since the death of his child and loss of his arm, but then Arsenal has to choose between his team and resurrecting his dead daughter. 

Let me repeat that

resurrecting his dead daughter. 


Also another one that I like

Yes, that's a married Superman and pregnant Lois Lane.   Look I don't care what DC's current status is, Clark Kent and Lois Lane are one of those couples that you DON'T split up. 

Speaking of married superheroes whose marriages were taken away by bullshit, let's look at Spider-Verse

Well so much for Marvel Vs. Capcom Spider-Man

But anyway, that's not important, moving on

Well that's the movies taken care of, (and also the musical and what I assume to be some educational game).........

You know they have a point, there is a lot of Japanese Spider-Men.  I think it's cause he looks a bit like a Sentai character.  

But yeah, what could be their difference? What makes these two different besides the suit?

Notice it? Huh? 

If you didn't notice it, look at Spidey's hand in the right top panel. 

YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH, it's a married Spidey.  Though I wonder what that this summer thing means?

I honestly have no idea what that could refer to.  :D

(Before you get too excited, bear in mind that this is an alternate universe Spidey but maybe our Peter could get remarried too...)

Please, Marvel? 

Also that Renew The Vows is from Marvel's own version of Convergence focusing more on various alternate universes, but it probably won't be as exciting as Convergence...

................I'm not going to have any money left, am I?

Well, at least nothing else is happening related to comics in between now and the end of Summer

You know, go fuck yourselves

Just to let you know, Happy birthday, Jon!

And I'm afraid you gift will be late. ^^; Mainly, because my computer is being a pain in the ass and won't let me write it out. Lucky, I will get all my items together either by tonight or tomorrow and start working.
gambit508 Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2014
Thanks! And it's alright, hell I was late with yours for the same reason (and why I'll probably be late with any of the others coming up in the next few months)
MalchiortheDraco Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2014
I can understand that, man.
gambit508 Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2014
Anyway it's fine, do what you gotta do.

Hey man. Just thought I'd ask another quick question - do you happen to know if anyone in the COTAverse has a bone-manipulating fruit?
gambit508 Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2014
Yes, one of Dude's recurring villians

gambit508 Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2014
