Thanks Cam_The_Man, Jademz and Aldul,
I downloaded the mod kit and sat down and started writing a plot and I guess you've seen a "first draft" as it came out.
I do appreciate the responses, and I hope you've enjoyed reading the chapters so far. I'm presently working on Chapter 3 and figured I'd sit down at the end of Chapter 3 and decide how seriously I wanted to continue. I guess writing Chapter 1 was therapy for my Tron-starved mind, and two was because I needed to continue.
I am presently writing Chapter 3 - which should have a few suprises and set the plot ball rolling. After that, things should start warming up.
There are 20 chapters planned if I continue to the end, and the plot continues to the finish. There is a mix of real-world plots and issues and a few chances planned for Jet to realise who he is and why things are the way they are, as well as having to make choices of the kind people shouldn't have to. Some real-world hacking coming too (Don't worry - that's not a spoiler) and a few twists to the story.
It's set in the modern era, yet I've drawn the entire concept from the basis of the original movie, updated and taken 2.0 into consideration and treated it all as seamless.
So essentially, I'm trying to return to the feel of the original while respecting 2.0.
The main inspirations for this story/expansion are the unsatisfactory ending for Jet/Mercuty, the lack of Flynn in the sequel, the sad happening to Lora (Should have been a bigger plot mechanism) but especially the discussion between Walter Gibbs and Ed Dillinger, which I beleive gave an insight into the real nature of the other side of the screen - in fact, that one conversation made it possible for me to build a story spanning both TRON and TRON2.0 and combining both elements while attempting to weave in a smattering of modern concepts and ideas.
And even a touch of "Religion" as Ed Dillinger pointed out in Tron.
I also drew on a lot of older ideas such as Optical Loop memory. I won't bore you with details that might show up later in the plot, but I recall discussing such concepts with Romanian engineers a long, long time ago, and I guess that all wove into the final.
Sorry about the typo's. I'm terrible at spotting my own mistakes.
I finally got the comics and now I'm sorry I did, because I can see a similarity in some of the planned plot mechanisms (only mechanisms - not the actual plot). . So I've only skimmed them and I might leave them alltogether until my plot is well underway.
But the art is nice
Aldul - you hit the nail right on the head. I'm trying for "sci-fi plausible" as you put it. So I'm glad it looks that way. And there is a working "model" I am using for each plot mechanism which fits in, in it's own way, with both the original and sequel.
I hope to have Chapter 3 finished this weekend. If I keep going after this, I'll aim at one chapter every 1 to 2 weeks.
(Some are harder and longer than others).
Oh, This is also my first fan-fic so I'm finding the creative constraints of making assumptions about someone else's universe challenging.
Thanks again for the feedback. Feel free to comment on individual chapters - even if you don't like them.
