So I had a weird dream about Nack the Weasel/Fang the Sniper. He was on some kind of case this weird person had hired him for, but I have no memory now of said case. Except everything kept going wrong and the client was super-aggravating and it ended with him basically bailing out, even if the only way to get away was to mail himself somewhere else while tied up. WTH. And the client commenting on how he was so annoying noisy, when she was the one who had been doing all the pointless talking. Weird, WEIRD dream.

It did make me remember how much I enjoyed the character, at least in the games. I still feel that the comics really played havoc with him. I did like Archie giving him a sister, but otherwise, eh, I didn't like Archie making him an idiot or Fleetway making him a traitor. I hated Archie's version of Triple Trouble so much, I didn't even want to keep it and I sold it to another Nack fan when she wanted it in spite of the portrayal. (Now I have the story again, though, because it was included in a graphic novel compilation with some other stories I wanted.) In the games, he's a jewel hunter (I think), but I don't recall that they even gave much of a description for him beyond that. Yet it seems like there was a sentence or two, at least, so I need to try to dig that up. But he snipes with a toy pop-gun, LOL. Yeah, a real dangerous fella. He's probably fairly harmless, unlike both comic portrayals.

I wrote a lot of stories for him back the day, mostly silly hurt/comfort ones. Then I tried a different approach for a Sonic X story that stalled. I don't think I care much for the latter approach now. Part of me would like someday to try a third approach, different from either of those and probably drawing more on the jewel hunter bit (maybe). And part of me still equates Snakes here with him in some way. (That is, in a positive way, similar to my fleshing out of Snakes, and not the selfish coward we see for a few minutes in canon.) Maybe I'll try to look for that official description from the games, if there is one, and ponder on this.

Then I woke up and found that someone new had Favorited me on FF.net, and they seem to like my FF7 stories. I looked through their Favorites, saw an intriguing one with Sephiroth being hurt when sane and protecting Genesis, and had to open it and start skimming through it. It was so, so good, and Genesis was portrayed a lot like Barney in it, anger-wise, and I remembered why I love sane Sephiroth. I Favorited it, and later I'll need to leave a review on it.

Also, the Turtles fic really took off! I figured out how to do the opening scene, it flowed, and then everything else flowed. I think the first draft is almost done now, save for the ending scenes. And then I'll probably add a little more here and there, as I usually do. I would estimate that it will probably go up early Tuesday, maybe, or later on Tuesday. Mondays are always very busy, so I might not have the chance to properly finish it then. But I might be able to get the first draft done tonight. We'll see.
