Sports: Watch wrestling every Monday and Thrusday night!

Cars: Looking forward to owning my own Jeep, when I've gotten enough money to get one!

Hiking: Give me a break, man!

Dating chicks: Still working on that.

But none of this stuff can hold me back from Carmen Sandiego and Indiana Jones.

Geez, RF...take it easy. You're coming across like a bully. Questioning his sex (male or female)...what does that matter? And attacking his choice of what he likes to write. If you feel the need to berate him, why not use the PM feature?

And no offense, but I wouldn't go bringing up "big boy stuff", either.

Besides... there is actually no phenomenon that would have strict age limitations. Lot of grown-ups have a fascination and fandom towards something with the core audience probably not pointed exactly towards their generation. Take Harry Potter for example. Many adults are fans of his. And it can be vice-versa too. I know a nine-year-old girl who has skipped the works of J.K. Rowling and Enid Blyton and is reading thrillers of Lawrence Saunders and Alistair McLean (just to name couple of authors). Heck, I even know a fellow who watches Teletubbies every Saturday morning, and he doesn't have little kids. Actually, no kids at all.

Ren, don't belittle Acme for his fascination towards Carmen Sandiego (even though I still don't have faintest idea who the hell is [s]he), something like that... it's completely normal for a grown up... it has nothing to do with a twisted mind.

You know, I've noticed that people with skills but who are not confident enough about them tend to write fanfic. And Ren, I believe that your meaning is the complete opposite of the following... but you're not boosting Acme's confidence. At least I have such a feeling.

ACME, I was absolutely stunned when I read that comment.

Do you mean to say that Monkey and myself inspired your story? Because if so, I for one am flabergasted.

I am extremely flattered that I inspired someone to write a story, and secondly, I would just like to say thank you for your above comment. It's really nice to see someone taking an interest in mine and my friend Monkey's writing.

Thanks once again.

BTW, ACME, try not to take Ren's comments too personally.

And as for you Renderking, do I have to fly all the way to New Hampshire to sort you out?

Bad Fisky!

"Carmen and the RotLA" reaches its final two chapters!!

Even though most of everybody is probably gonna check out the final chapter of "IJ and the Gypsy's Kiss" (I know I am ) and the new Indy fan-film at TIE.c, I've released the last two chapters of "Carmen Sandiego and the Raiders of the Lost Ark" online.

If your favorite "Indy" film is "RotLA", you might want to see how this version of the adventure ends.

I have read some more chapters of your story and have yet to read the last two chapters, and am very much looking foward to reading them.

ACME, yesterday I read the last two chapters of your story and I wanted to tell you that I really enjoyed reading them, and indeed the whole story.

You are a very good writer and not to sound sacriligous, but I like the way in which you used some of the lines and changed them slightly.

I feel that you have quite a good imagination and I for one would be very much interested in reading an Indiana Jones adventure written by you, if indeed you have any plans to do one.

The only thing I will say is, its a shame that the love scene between Indy and Marion on the Bantu Wind was left out, as I feel that this is a vital scene in the adventure and is also the only time when Indy and Marion kiss. Saying that though, I noticed that you used the "it's the years, not the mileage" dialogue in a very clever way later on in the story.

Apart from that, it made for a pretty good read!

Kind regards





BTW, how do you like my new logo?

Thanks, Canyon.

I'm glad that you've enjoyed reading "Carmen and the RotLA". I hope you're looking forward to reading more "Indy/Carmen" stories online.

Of course!

Can't wait to read 'Where in the Temple of Doom is Carmen Sandiego?'

No More Indy/Carmen Adventures

To everyone in this forum who has read and posted messages in this particular forum,

I'm afraid to inform you that, as of now, I am canceling the "Indy/Carmen Adventures" fan-fic series.

But this doesn't mean that I have given up fan-fic writing. I will continue to go on writing fan-fics; just not this one.

I wish to thank Canyon for supporting and believing in me. And, Renderking Fisk, thank you for the "Great Debate".

I will be signing off now, so if any of you wish to reply to this message, send me an e-mail:

disneyaccess@hotmail.com


Thank you and goodbye (for now).
