2016 April Fools Master List

6 years ago | mathtans (Member)

Okay... I'm just going to jump in and start this thread, in the absence of someone else having done it. I created this list by looping from my entry through the subsequent posts (reading as I went - good stuff!). There may be another track too (I kinda think there is, since I didn't see Billy Higgins Peery, and he started the "Swap?" post back in January) and the links may be updated by authors after today, who knows. But for your reading pleasure:

Emma Mohr writes "Sin Eater"; today we present knifleman's take:

knifleman writes "Outliers"; today we present L. E. Erickson's take:

L.E. Erickson writes "Graves"; today we present Whyknotzoidberg's take:

Whyknotzoidberg writes "Hotfoot"; today we present J.A. Waters' take:

J.A. Waters writes "SyncPoint"; today we present mathtans' take:

Gregory Taylor (mathtans) writes "Epsilon Project"; today we present Kaleidofish's take:

Kaleidofish writes "Redwood Crossing"; today we present Syphax's take:

Syphax writes "Stone Burners"; today we present Emma Mohr's take:

    Thanks for doing this! Was waiting for something to be put up so I could read all of these!
    Here's a couple you missed that I can find:

    David Whitechapel writes "Jayson Agonistes: Breaking Hell"; today we have Jim Zoetewey's take:

    Billy Higgins Peery writes "A Bad Idea"; today we have David Whitechapel's take:

    Unfortunately I've got no more than that since I can't find LoN's April Fool's post, or any indication of what Billy wrote for :(

    The serial I was supposed to write for this year was abandoned, sadly. No idea who that guy was supposed to write for.

    I didn't receive an April Fool, or alternately it didn't make it past my spam filter. One of the two. I suspect the first is more likely, but I can't rule out the second. That said, I can easily imagine someone not having time to make it through my archive, for example.

    Also, I know that at one point in the past, someone gave up trying after finding that she wasn't comfortable enough in first person.

    @David: No problem, thanks for adding those in!

    @Jim: Aw, that's too bad. I did drift by "Legion" today to see if there was someone else's take on it this year... and no reason why someone couldn't have picked up from a later arc. My guess is that's the broken link of Billy's, I think there were only a dozen or so of us?

    Incidentally, I made a post again this year about my writing process for "SyncPoint" (as I did for "Legion" last year). Find it below; contains spoilers for things in my entry itself.

    Hooray! I'm looking forward to reading through everyone's work! Thanks for making this thread for the easy reference, Mathtans.

    And thank you, again, for the excellent entry!

    Huh. Too bad the guy who Billy was supposed to write for and who was in turn supposed to write for me didn't say he was dropping out. Billy probably could have written for Legion relatively easily and likely gotten readers out of it due to being the same genre.

    Oh well.

    Yeah, that does kinda suck. I'm also sorry you didn't get an April Fools chapter this year!

    Really appreciate that you gave me a shout-out on your site, though. A couple people clicked that link, which is always nice. It's also surreal. I don't know if you wanna hear this, but I was actually reading LoN back in high school!

    Really? That makes sense. It's been going for around eight years, so someone could start reading as a high school freshman and check in as a senior in college or even a recent graduate to find that it's still going.
