A fanfic [31 May 2006|09:34pm]

Survival- my multi-part fanfic about what happened after the credits rolled. Namely death, destruction and general angst, I suppose.

It's over on fanfiction.net. Concrit is appreciated if anyone's up for it. :D

WOTW rpg, anyone? [16 Jan 2006|08:46pm]

I've thought for a while about starting a War of the Worlds rpg here on LiveJournal. The characters in the game will be mostly or all original characters. If enough people take an interest in this (I'm hoping for at least 5 people), I'll make a group. I'm taking volunteers, suggestions for plot, etc. Just leave a comment here if you're interested.

Fic Update: A Survivor's Story / Avatars [12 Jan 2006|11:34pm]

[ mood | exhausted ]

Chapter 3 is posted on FF.Net. Hope you enjoy!


I've also made some WOTW avatars over Christmas. They're under the (fake) cut. If you'd like to use them, please credit me for their creation. Thanks in advance!

Fanfic [26 Dec 2005|11:20am]

A sort of Christmas present for you all. :)

Survival- my take on what happened after the movie's credits rolled. Features the entire Ferrier family, a couple of new characters, very little romance and a rather bleak view of humankind.

The first two chapters are up. ;) Concrit is seriously wanted.

n00b, but I come bearing a fan fic! [22 Dec 2005|09:05pm]

[ mood | bouncy ]

Hi there,

The name's Acid and I'm a big fan of WOTW. I love the book, I love the musical and I love the films, especially the latest one. I'm even going to see Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds in April (fourth row tickets baby, oh yeah!)

I am a HUGE fan. This is one of the few stories that has ever managed to truly terrify me. I'm so glad to find LJ Community dedicated to it.

Anyway, I said I come bearing fic and I do. This is a fic based in the universe of the latest film, although it does not include the Ferriers. I hope you enjoy reading it. It's not quite finished yet, but it will be soon. You can find it here: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2665094/1/

It's called A Survivor's Story.

Greeting and Salutations to all!!!

For those of you living in the UK near Cardiff, Wales, Jeff Wayne's musical adaption of War of the Worlds will be taking place on Sunday the 16th of April, 2006 at 8pm at Cardiff CIA. More info is of course availible on the website.

I figured I'd post it here as no community exists for the musical at the moment.

Does anybody know when 'The War of the Worlds' is out on DVD in the UK? I read somewhere that it was the 14th of November, but another site said it's available in October. :/ Thanks!

I suddenly wondered- you know those 'making of' books that they do for Star Wars and LOTR and most big-budget movies? Did they ever do one for WOTW? Because if not, I call that somewhat of a missed oppotunity. ;)

War of the Worlds: Fresh Perspective [26 Aug 2005|04:10pm]


Hi all – I work for a book publisher, BenBella Books.  I wanted to let you know about an exciting new book out over H.G. Wells’ & his classic book, The War of the Worlds.  Our book is titled The War of the Worlds: Fresh Perspectives on the H.G. Wells Classic.  Different well-known writers and contributors examine all aspects of this important work.


Some contributors include:


·         “H. G. Wells’ Enduring Mythos of Mars,” in which Stephen Baxter provides the history of man’s investigations of Mars and explains why Wells was right after all


  • “Just Who Were Those Martians, Anyway?” in which Lawrence Watt-Evans explains how ridiculously incompetent the Martians were as interplanetary invaders, and why


  • “In Woking’s Image,” in which Mercedes Lackey takes us to a different alien world: Wells’ hometown of Woking during the late 19th century


  • “The Tiniest Assassins,” in which Mike Resnick suggests that Wells gets one tiny thing wrong


  • The Hugo-winning “The Soul Selects Her Own Society” (the only reprint in this anthology), in which Connie Willis describes the unfortunate encounter between Emily Dickinson and Wells’ Martians 


  • Introduction by Robert Silverberg


Go to www.smartpopbooks.com for a sample of the book!


Enjoy and Happy Reading!

Were you on that plane? [21 Aug 2005|12:22am]

[ mood | ecstatic ]

Hey guys!

Thought I should post this seeing as how it's War of the Worlds related and all.

Today I went to Universal Studios for one main reason only, to see the infamous crash scene that was set up and filmed there. They used a real 747 and altered the plane to look as though it'd crashed into a neighborhood. If you remember, its the scene where Ray steps outside the neighborhood once the 'lightning' came back and sees all the devastation.

Airplane Crash SceneCollapse )

Let me just say that seeing this set in person was absolutely stunning! As wrong as it may seem, it was gorgeous... Beautiful! Not only was the set on my side, there were destroyed houses on the other side of the tram, so it felt like we'd driving right into the movie!

I wanted to hop out of that tram and go playing around in it, but knowing the security standards, I'd get arrested for trespassing and more than likely beat and banned from the park. So being a good girl, I stayed put and gawked from my seat. They also felt the need to add in the sound effects of cars honking, distress and other various death noises. It was breathtaking!

And to top it off, the breaks on the tram, when released, sounded like something you'd hear from the Tripods themselves... 0.o Perfect timing guys... Really... Let's scare the crap out of a person with an over active imagination.

The closest to WotW I am likely to come [17 Aug 2005|09:55am]

Well. Last night, I'm about to go to bed and all of a sudden this loud helicopter noise fills the entire house. It's annoying and it doesn't go away, and it carries on for several minutes, occasionally going away and coming back again. Some of the neighbours starting coming outside to see what was going on, and I was suddenly reminded of that first teaser trailer- you know, where everyone goes outside and gets blown up? So, anyway, I stuck my head out of the window to get a better view, and not too far away the helicopter is just hovering there. Since it's so dark outside, all I can see is the yellow lights on the front of it. Then all of a sudden it turns it's searchlights on, and starts shining them around the houses- including right in my window (waaa...) and I note it looks a lot like this picture except obviously on a slightly smaller scale. I dunno why I didn't flee screaming, because the tripods in the movie scared the heck out of me.

Anyway, the helicopter turned the lights off, hung around for a few more minutes then went away. I still have no idea what it was actually doing there...

My friend April and I are running a War of the Worlds RPG. We're pretty low on people right now, and I was wondering if there might be some one here interested in joining. The only characters taken right now are robbie (obviously) and ray. If any of you would like to join, either as an established character or an original character, we'd love it. Just go to the war_ooc  page and submit your application and we'll check it out. Thanks alot.

Does anyone know where I can find good War of the Worlds fanfiction?

I was disappointed when I couldn't find many fanfics about it. I've already been through the ones at Fanfiction.net

Does anyone know where I can find more?
