So as you already know, I rewrote last week’s episode Ghosts and that caused it to be a day late. When I moved around some sub-plots I caused a snow-ball effect and now I’m going to be late with the mid-season finale since I realized I had to deal with the events of Ghosts earlier than planned (but this isn’t a bad thing, trust me!).

Plus, I decided to do all this in probably the two busiest months of the year for me social-wise.

Did I mention this was a learning process?

I’ve since decided to move the Mid-Season Finale, 1X11 Pinnacle, to Christmas Day at 5e/4c. This gives me time to really have a sit down with it and see how it’s going to effect the second half of the season.

I really apologize and hope you all understand! And here is a sneaky for you to tell you how much I appreciate you!

In a bubble of a nearly blinding storm, three figures flew by, lost in the backdrop.

“This is the search grid,” Wolverine said as he checked the GPS locator.

“Good,” Carol said as she held onto a harness that was wrapped around the man’s torso, herself floating in the air thanks to her mutation which gave her the strength to counteract gravity, to a point, “cause you’ve put on a few pounds in your old age.”

The feral mutant was clearly not amused as he tucked away the device into his jacket.

“I will stay above,” Storm told them as she floated on the winds, “I can push this storm farther North and give you a reprieve, but it will be delicate as I do not want to dump twelve inches of snow over New England.”

“Understood,” Carol nodded to the woman, then looked down at Logan, “you picking up anything yet?”

“Nah,” he sniffed the air, “it’ll be better on the ground.”

“You want me to drop you any place in particular?” she asked him.

“Anywhere will be good,” he told her.

“Okay,” and with that she simply let go.

Logan fell like a rock, growling like a beast, but the Air Force Captain had no doubt he’d land on his feet with the grace of a feline.

“I commend you,” Storm said with a smirk.

“He’ll get over it,” she checked that her radio was secure to her belt and her thermal coat was zipped tight , “he always does.”

“Yes,” the woman nodded, “good luck in finding your friend.”

“Who needs luck when you have a Wolverine,” Carol winked, then dived down towards the Earth, looking for where the man would have landed.

“Hilarious,” he was all he said when she came to land in front of him.

“I thought so,” she smiled and then looked around to see nothing but white and trees, “got a direction yet?”

“Yeah,” he gestured to his left, “this way.”

“Just like old times, eh, Logan?” she said as they started to head that way.

He let out a rare honest laugh, “Just like old times.”

Sports ran long, tonight’s episode, 1X10 Ghosts has been preempted.

In truth, I decided to do some work on this episode to make it better, and I’m quite happy with how well it’s turning out. The problem is that I misjudged how much time I’d need and it’s not ready to post today.

Writing a television series has definitely been a learning process, but like all learning there is that oh so fun curve.

The episode will be ready tomorrow and of course post per usual on FF.net on Sunday. I apologize for the delay but trust me when I say that it’s worth it.

Thanks for sticking it out with me and being understanding of these occasional hiccups.

Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer is both cryptic while dropping a bomb-shell on his twitter feed.

Age of ApocalypseThis seems to say that the sequel to DOFP will be out in 2016 and involve the classic villain: Apocalypse.

It makes a lot of sense to bring in this big baddy, and it looks like they had already decided to do it from the beginning because:

  • In the DOFP trailer the temple they go too may be part of Apocalypse’s cult
  • They brought Blink into the franchise when they didn’t really have to and she’s a descendant of Apocalypse.
  • Post-Apocalyptic (pardon the pun) is really big right now, everyone is using that dystopian feel.
  • Age of Apocalypse was one of the biggest non-616 universes in the comics and was fairly well received.
  • 2016 is also Avengers 2 and if they want to compete then they need to bring in a heavy-hitter.

The problem though with him announcing this now is… well… DOFP hasn’t even come out and he pretty much gives away the Easter-egg reveal (oh no, they saved themselves from Trask but woke up Apocalypse?!) Is he throwing this out there so in 2015 when he starts production people won’t accuse him of ripping off whatever Avengers 2 is doing ala Quicksilver?  Unless Apocalypse doesn’t actually mean the person but just the event and Singer is trolling us (also possible).

An even bigger question is who is going to be fighting him? I would imagine they would want to keep on with the First Class cast unless he managed to talk the Classic cast back to do another picture. Either way, how is this going to fit into the continuity of the films? How much of  a reboot will DOFP be and effect the universe? Will this tie into the X-Force film at all?

So many questions!!

And we’ll just have to wait and see…

So, this last week has not been kind to me. Everything from sudden deadlines at work that weren’t there two days ago to the average temperature in Oklahoma dropping a good 20°F and giving my sinuses the run around. Not to mention my DVR kinda died half way through watching Elementary last night… this really sucks cause I have two episode of Arrow on there I haven’t watch yet (wait, is this a bad thing?).

Anyway, tonight’s episode The Trask at Hand is not ready for it’s 7 o’clock air-time. I hope to have it up tonight, but at the latest, tomorrow. It will post as usual on FF.net on Sunday.

In consolation, here is a sneak of episode 1X08 – Scarlet:

Rogue slammed on the breaks as a car whipped out in front of her with no regard of little things like ‘right of way’ and ‘oncoming traffic, “Seriously,” she laid on the horn, “why is it a universal constant that three fourths of the world’s population do not know how to drive?”

“Hhhmmm,” Wanda crinkled her brow as she focused on the car in front of them, “fun fact, radiators have a separate section for transmission oil to be cooled. If the flow slows down because it’s not cooling properly, then the transmission doesn’t get old and can burn out. When your transmission goes, sometimes it’s just cheaper to get a new car.”

Wanda snapped her fingers and a keen eye would see a small spark of reddish electrical energy jump across her finger pads.

“I’d turn here if I were you,” Wanda smiled, “our inconsiderate driver is about to find himself most inconvenienced.”

“Nice,” Rogue chuckled as she turned down a side road, “I told you taking that automotive class would come in handy.”

“You only wanted me to be able to fix your car for you if you were feeling lazy,” the Romanian smirked.

“Hey, you said it was easier to affect the probability of something happening when you understood how it worked,” Rogue took a corner, then started to pull up a drive, “I was just trying to help.”

“Uh huh,” Wanda shook her head, pulling a garage door remote from her bag, “what’s the probability that the spa uses the same frequency as this remote?”

“I dunno,” the Southerner grinned, “you tell me.”

“Let’s go with probable,” Wanda snapped her fingers again, pointing the remote at the gate which then proceeded to open on command. Wanda feigned surprise, “well now, would you imagine that?”

For those of you don’t know, NaNoWriMo is awesome. It’s a personal challenge to write 50,000 words in one month. It’s a great motivator and so much fun! Check out their website at nanowrimo.org.

Personally… I am sssoooooooooooo behind. But that’s okay, I still have plenty of time to catch up.

I’m taking this weekend off from XMTFFS to give myself some time to work on it. The Series will be back next Friday with a brand new episode: 1X06 The Trask at Hand. I’ll see you then!

It’s very typical of television shows to take a week or two off, usually because either of a holiday or special event preempted them. Well, this weekend I will be at a steampunk convention and next weekend is Thor: The Dark World… not to mention NaNoWriMo starts today! So I thought this would be a good time to take off for a bit, let people catch up, and give me some time to work on future episodes.

I won’t leave you with nothing though, here is a sneak peak at the upcoming episode 1X06 – The Trask at Hand

“Call up your X-Men friends,” Val gave him a conspiratorial smile, “odds are they’re going to stick their noses into this anyway, Sentinel is too dangerous to them not to get involved.”

“They gave Nimrod back,” Fred pointed out.

“After they broke it,” she returned wryly.

“To keep Magneto from getting it,” he frowned.

“So they say,” she wasn’t entirely convinced, “but regardless, I want them where I can see them,” she crossed her arms and left no room to debate, “if they want to ‘be the better person’, then they can prove it.”

Fred considered her for a second, then he gave her a scoffing laugh, “And it’s a move the Acolytes won’t see coming, us actually working together.”

“Got it in one,” she grinned, then gestured to his phone that was lying out on the desk. “Trask wants the Council’s help in moving Sentinel. We move it in two days, Thursday to be exact,” she almost laughed, “I know it’s a school day but they better be ready.”

“They’re not stupid,” he wanted to shake his head at her, “even if I don’t tell them, they’ll know there’s nothing altruistic about this, that you’re using them.”

“I’m not trying to hide it,” she shrugged, then sighed, “I know, they claim to be the good guys, but they’re just as much capable as the Brotherhood of doing untold damage if left unchecked. Now, I’ve seen our government give weapons to the ‘good guys’ to fight other ‘bad guys’,” she exaggerated the words, “then only a decade or so down the line find those weapons turned back on us. I’m not making that mistake here, especially since mutants are weapons.”

“They’re not weapons,” Fred said sternly, sitting up straight in his chair to look her dead in the eye, “they’re people.”

“So is a suicide bomber,” she replied coldly, leaning forward, “only when a mutant blows up, odds are it can walk away and do it again.”
