Lost Tales
Now that the Raven is back, I might as well plug my fanfic site again.

It's got an original Young Indy story, a Young Indy story based on the video game Instruments of Death, and two based on Find Your Fate Adventures.

The address is:

Check it out and let me know what you think. I can take criticism as long as its constructive.

In honor of Indiana Jones's 105th birthday today, I have added another "Find Your Fate" adaptation to my website.

Check it out and feel free to offer any comments or constructive criticism here.

Great timeline

Where did you got the information that an Young Indy tvshow was going to take place in Stockholm (Sweden, my homecountry :))

Junior Jones 07-01-2004 08:47 AM

I had heard that there were some episodes that were planned, but never produced. Then, back in 2000 Micah Johnson posted an article at

I also read an article with Jonathan Hales about writing Star Wars II. In it he also talked about writing for Young Indiana Jones and mentioned at least one episode that wasn't made.

By the way, being from Sweden, would you have any idea what historical event would have taken place or what famous person would have been in Stockholm in December of 1909? I've tried to research that, but haven't found anything useful.

Lord Excalibur 07-01-2004 10:47 AM

Wow, not what I can remember, I have to look in my history book

It's an annual event - the Nobel prizes, 10th of December. Check 1909 Nobelists (the prizes have been shared since 1901) and try to locate a person or achievement of possible interest.

Junior Jones 07-01-2004 01:42 PM

Thank you! I knew about the Nobel Prize, but I never made the connection. Now I have some research to do. Thanks again!

Lord Excalibur 07-01-2004 02:05 PM

Indy would maybe have met Selma Lagerlöf during the Nobel Prize. You the writer of Nils Holgersson's wonderful travels (I don't know the title on English). Selma took the Nobel Prize in 1909

The Wonderful Adventures of Nils, also known as The Journey of the Little One. Liked this one a lot when I was a kid, my mom used to read it to me.

Why don't you make a Indiana Jones History Book?

Finn 07-04-2004 03:27 PM

Who? Me or JJ?

Johan 07-04-2004 04:45 PM

JJ but hey if you beat em to it...I'm all for ya

Finn 07-05-2004 08:15 AM

Nah, it's not Indiana Jones history that fascinates me... it's the actual history.

Junior Jones 07-05-2004 10:33 PM

I love the actual history, too, and how it ties in with Indiana Jones history. That's why I love The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles so much.

After finishing school, I rarely read anything but fiction, novels, etc. But you should never stop learning, so way back, just after the show was cancelled, I started a self-improvement course. Starting with the first episode of YIJC, I went to the library and checked out biographies on Lawrence of Arabia and Howard Carter. Then I read about Norman Rockwell, and Pablo Picasso and other impressionist artists. Then I read Teddy Roosevelt's own account of his African safari. And on and on.

I am a more well-rounded person because of Indiana Jones. And it's amazing how accurate most (not all) of Indiana Jones history is.

I had heard a rumor some time ago that Lucas had commissioned several documentary filmmakers to produce biographies of the historic characters in YIJC, for inclusion on the eventual DVD's. I really hope that is true.

Finally, after 10 months, I have added another new story to my site. This one's about Young Indiana Jones and takes place 100 years ago this month. Click on Princeton, 1905 to read it.

As always, I want my stories to be the best they can be, so feel free to comment and make suggestions.


BTW, the address is:

Colonel Vogel 05-31-2005 05:33 AM

What do you prefer, young Indy or the OT?

Junior Jones 05-31-2005 10:24 AM

I guess it really belongs here, since it's fan-fic.

I just posted in the Young Indy forum so that Young Indy fans would be sure to see it.

Junior Jones 09-02-2008 02:05 PM


Wow, I had to dig this thread out of page 17!

Anyway, I updated my site for the first time in a while. I'll be updating it again soon with another new Young Indy story (the title's there, but no link yet).

Also, I updated my timeline (it's two pages now). I decided to revert back to the original Young Indiana Jones Chronicles episode timeline.

Any problems or suggestions, please let me know.

Uh oh. I did this at home, but it's coming up fine on my work computer.

Make sure you're using the new link (in post #18) and not the original one.

Is anyone else having this problem?

Flannery10 09-04-2008 03:12 PM

Nope, it's coming out good.

Another one of Indy's 1905 adventures. I read an article on a while ago, indicating what most of the unproduced episodes would have been about. Did you read that one and made the 1905 idea into another story or did you work everything out on your own again.

Anyway, I really liked your first two stories, and I'm looking forward to read the 3rd one.

Junior Jones 09-05-2008 07:55 AM

The "Early May" Princeton story was based on a one-sentence description of the lost episode that I found long ago. It basically said "Young Indy meets Paul Robeson in Princeton" and I had to make up the rest.

The new "Late May" episode is based on the longer description in that article with the Captain Kidd treasure hunt. It's all finished, but I've got someone proofreading/editing it for me and she's not done yet. I hope to have it up very soon.

it isn't working. Is it because i have a Mac? Can anyone think of any explanation why?

Junior Jones 09-15-2008 10:52 PM

Tum-ta-da-da!! (trumpet fanfare)

Announcing another new episode of The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles!
"Princeton, Late May 1905" can be found at my website, Indiana Jones and the Lost Tales. Just go to the main page and click on the link. (Bonus points to anyone who can identify my inspiration for Young Indy's friends.)

Also premiering at my site, a new chapter in The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones!
(Taking my cue from Uncle George, I took my two Princeton episodes, deleted the bookends, and added an awkward bridging sequence to connect the otherwise unrelated stories. I think it works quite well. :rolleyes: )

Anyway, enjoy the new story and please let me know what you think. I'm always trying to improve, and constructive criticism is welcome.

Flannery10 09-16-2008 03:30 PM

I already finished your story! Really good job, JuniorJones. I really like the way you write, and I'm looking forward to read more stories of you.

I'm afraid I couldn't identify your inspiration for Indy's friends, but maybe it'll come to me, soon. I'm a little surprised, you didn't include any historical figures, but still excellent story!
