I was wondering what happened to cause these sites to dry up.

Conceptfan
Julievelor (AK)
Jon X's superheroines.net

All the best sites seem to have gone by the by.

I think it takes a lot of time to run a page and produce content. Especially when it's free it's still often thankless. People get new jobs, move, leave school, or have family changes that change their time and often don't have the heart to say it's over.

Conceptfan and Julievelor were huge losses. Julievelor in particular often wrote stories in the style and on topics I loved so that was a big loss to me.

Agreed. Some of the best stories ever were written by these guys. Shame that they're gone,apparently indefinitely.

It is a real shame that these guys stopped writing. I hope that one day we'll see them return...but I'm not holding my breath. AK was certainly a major inspiration for me...there wouldn't have been a MobGirl if not for Superior Girl.

I was thinkimg about writing a tribute to Ria...but thought I'd sound the idea out here first. If I did, I'd need help from Cf's fans on what would make a good Ria fanfic great.

But the biggest question is whether to do it or not at all. I'm not as good as Conceptfan...should I just leave the classic alone? My last foray into another writers universe was not so well received....

Well, if i was to go ahead i really would need input. I'm thinking of setting the story in the distant future...it would not be an attempted continuation.

I'm open to suggestions.

Perhaps a visit to a militant alien empire...

Maybe a visit from Prykton emisaries unaware of Ria's ownership of Earth.....

Or maybe Ria returns home to reconquer the Empire...

Or maybe I should mind my own damn business.

Well if you set it in the distant future it could be intresting to see how the world changes.

The sequals to Dune where never all that great, but they did have a good idea of how someone taking over the galaxy whould change the galaxy.

World Queen +500 years could be an intresting idea.

What i did like about conceptfans story-they where never realistic, but they did have a relation to reality if that makes sence.

These sites brings good memories to us, for me was a special time when I used to wait the updates in supersexyheroines.com on tuesdays and earlier I enjoyed to read the first stories with some emphasys on super breath feats in conceptfan.

But life goes on

I think Conceptfan is lurking around here. If you want, go for it Dru.

Yeah, go for it Dru. I hope you throw in some supermind powers like you do in your other stories.

After giving it some serious thought, I've changed my mind about delving into Conceptfan's universe. Yes, I would enjoy writing it, but it's not my place. I have to assume Cf had reasons for pulling the pin, and I guess I should respect his choice. The only way I'd go ahead is if I had some sort of approval from the man himself...which I think most unlikely.

Thanks anyway to those who offered encouragement, Sorry guys.....

Well, maybe you can try to contact him through his revamped website , I'm not sure if you can really get CF to respond, but so far it's your best shot.

As for JulieVelor/AK, he's still around the net, but he doesn't seem to be into the genre anymore. I'm not sure if he will be interested to return to this community or not. Is there anyone around here that knew him well enough to contact him?

I put up a link to the Wayback Machine archive of Julie of Velor at The Bright Empire:

web.archive.org/web/20080216121115/http:....infinitybridge.com/

I gather AK has put up a few new stories in the last year or so an a URL he used to use for the site,but without bringing back the entire site.

As for Conceptfan and JonX, they seem to be gone with the wind.

I'm pleased to hear that AK is still out there. I had been under the false impression that he'd passed away...but I think I confused him with another dude. Sometimes its good to be wrong.

Dru,

I can see why you wouldn't want to use some of Conceptfan's characters. Would you ever consider maybe taking a page from his book and starting a blog. I would suggest maybe using his blogger character if you wanted but I don't think you would want to. Maybe you might want to use one of your old characters. Maybe Emily from Mob Girl as she goes through time or my personal favorite Sarah from Stealing from a Thief (I so wish you would continue her story) as she gives herself new powers and goes about taking over the world. You could also make up a new character as she evolves from mortal to supergirl to goddess and has fun using her powers. Might be a fun way to keep your creative juices flowing. Of course selfishly it might be a good way to get one of the legends back to writing :)

I must admit, I have considered doing a blog in the past, but I don't have the time these days. Rest assured though, I do intend to rewrite the last chapter of Stealing and I've got maybe two more chapters in my head after that. But I've been meaning to do that for years...I just never get around to doing it.

Maybe that's what happened to these guys. Life has a way of getting complicated, Ive noticed, if you're not careful.
