(WIP) "How About You?" (Frama) (Fry/Leela) (Collaboration in progress)

Post by missy_misery » Sun May 24, 2009 7:48 am

This fic is a developing collaboration between myself and my friend, Becky.  Will include Fry/Leela, is post-movies canon, and should rank no higher than a PG.


NOTE: My name's the only one in the disclaimer right now 'cause I haven't recieved her section of the story yet.

SUMMARY: Leela goes to her parents to discuss a certain something.

More fic!

I have no negative comments about this so far. There's little to say, but what you have is funny. I love Leela's parents (they remind me of my own folks in many ways) and wish they were in a lot more fics. They're very much in character here, as is Leela. Plenty of humour: I liked "no spoilers!" and Zoidberg getting lost in the closet, and a lot of other lines.

I guess I'll have to see more before I can say more. Suffice it to say, this is a good opening, and it'll be fun to read something set after "Into the Wild Green Yonder".
The noose draws tighter;
This is the end;
I'm a good fighter
But a bad friend;
I've played the traitor
Over and over;
I'm a good hater
But a bad lover.

Yes, that was way too much of a teaser to just leave off on. Tell your collaborator to kick it into gear! I really have nothing else to add at this point, Chris covered it all.

Oh, one question. I noticed that this will be split into 4 sections. Is it going to be divided into You/Becky/You/Becky, or more of a melting pot?

Thanks, Chris and CC :)

@Chris - I admit I like the "no spoilers!" part the best - it started as a suggestion that got stretched out in this fic.

@CC - The former :) We write the main body of each segment the way you parsed it out, then edit the pieces together, throwing in lines at the approval of the other (yes, we edit via instant messaging *chuckles*) I wrote the main body of this, but Becky did some beta work on it and approved its inclusion into the general fanon of the cumulative piece.  Since this is very WIP-ish, I expect to change the disclaimer to fully reflect it as soon as I get the next seg :).  Thanks so much for your compliments!

If you can get a purely online collaboration to work, more power to you! :)
The few times I have tried never seemed to work out as expected and the project fell through. I hope to see some good results from you!

Thanks, CC! 

I've been lucky with my collaborators; all of them have come through.
