So, less 'in character toast-brained author'-ish... as I said on-list, as part of my Patreon
(of course I link to it. That is literally the whole point) and my active desire to rework old stories (and make them better), I've spun up an aSG called 023SG. More seriously -- I have been working out ways to tell some of the more interconnected story arcs without... you know, violating other peoples' intellectual property. But, it's still Superguy, so here's the first Goldfish: Rise of the Icthyomancer post:
Obviously I couldn't directly use Wonder Grunion, so the only real commonalities are 'a certain amount of magic,' and 'a fish-person that's kind of goldish looking in color.' Goldfish doesn't act or sound like good ol' W.G., and for the most part his cast is entirely new -- most notably starring Max Santiago.
Max isn't bright.
Anyway. A fish had to be first. That's the rule.
Of course, one of the rules is Ramrod is in every universe and is exactly the same. I'm not 100% sure how I'm going to pull that off.
Not much in the way of notes, but here you go:
- In the Banter Latte/Patreon version, the elder god is Dactylthulu. I missed the rename in the Superguy post, which makes me sad.
- Max Santiago was a name I picked at random. I only remembered that Santiago was the name of the lead in "The Old Man and the Sea" later. And Hemingway was discovered by a book editor named Maxwell Perkins, which I also didn't know.
The Patreon version can be found here ($5 minimum, so, like, don't jump in if this is all you want -- it's literally free everywhere else): Patreon: Goldfish: Rise of the Icthyomancer #1
