Notes From The Underground: Part 4 by DanDrazen
Notes From The Underground: Part 4
Last Friday morning I found this wedged into the gas cap cover of my car. Thanks to the reversion to Standard Time, it was dark when I left work the day before and didn't see it when I left home. Mercifully it didn't fall out.

Apparently someone still notices my BRONY license plate and wants to signify. Message received.

For those of you who follow the furry fandom, one of the staples of reading is/should be the Australian e-strip "Doc Rat" by the eponymous Jenner.

Anyway, Jenner has weighed in on "Zootopia" and one of the core themes of the picture. This is no screed; it's a very meaningful discourse and needful now that we seem to be facing the near-extinction of sanity amongst the allegedly intelligent species.

OK, that didn't work out as planned. I'm not sure if the problem is that I posted a link to a MS Word document (I'd always posted .txt fanfics and reviews) or what. So I'll try some alternate strategies. My bad.

Let's see if this one works: www.andrews.edu/~drazen/Pictur…
It's been something like 10 years since I last posted a Sonic fanfic. It's been a long dry stretch since then. For a variety of reasons, I felt that I really didn't have anything to say.

But something finally reawakened the desire within me to tell a story. That something was "Zootopia."

It's an amazing technical achievement anchored by the perfect cast: Judy Hopps the rabbit and idealistic new police officer, and Nick Wilde, the worldly-wise fox and street hustler. I believed in them right away and felt within the urge to tell a story of Zootopia myself. So I did.

This isn't a Sonic crossover; I don't see how that would work. But as a Zootopia fanfic, I hope you like it.

Check out "Picture Perfect" at:

Frisk : The Prophecy by DanDrazen
Frisk : The Prophecy
During the trek beneath the mountain, Frisk pauses to lean against a wall. Frisk doesn't notice the graffiti and is as yet unaware of the prophecy it symbolizes.

Angel of Mercy, or Angel of Death? It's how you play the game.

Frisk and the world of Undertale belong to Toby Fox.

No. I'll still be working, though my job goes to part-time in May. I won't retire before 2018.

Hel-lo, Mr Drazen!

I was wondering if you could help me out a smidge....

I've been searching high and low for a Sonic midi, it used to play in the background of the Sonic HQ.net fanfiction section...  I can't for the life of me remember what it was called, and I sure as heck can't describe music via text, all I can say is that it was VERY pretty...

I hope I can tickle your brain a tad, and maybe you could help me name that tune..?

Thank you. Hope things are going well with you, too.

After a long fallow period, I'm working on a fanfic again. The inspiration? "Zootopia." It's an amazing story, featuring amazing characters, with Heart like you wouldn't believe. Check it out if you haven't already.

Hey Dan, I heard that you stopped reviewing Archie's Sonic comics. Well it's a bit of a shame as your reviews were always interesting to read. But then again I can't say I blame you as I stopped reading at #159 which ironically was the last that Penders wrote. Perhaps If I had stayed on a few more issues maybe Ian would've won me over, who's to say.

In any case I was curious on what you were planning on doing next.

Maybe you could go back and review some of the issues that are missing in your archives or do a list of what you felt were the all time best and worst of the one's you read and reviewed. Perhaps you could reviews on the old satam episodes.

If you don't feel like doing anymore sonic related stuff have you considered reviewing mlp comics instead? They seam to have a better track record right now and you are a fan.

Anyway thank you for your dedication to the reviews and for being likable person.
