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.

Read it at www.docrat.com.au/zootopia-and…
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.

Thank you for the kind words. Without going into details I'm doing reasonably well. I may get back to writing fanfic when I retire.

You're welcome.

Glad you're doing well. Looking forward to seeing more fanfictions from you.

You ever thought of writing original stories and sell them? :D

Not much to tell. Mostly I've been thinking about fanfics but haven't had the chance to work anything up. Maybe I'll do that once I'm retired, which isn't that far away for me.
