I just created the Ferilon Farm as a group here on DA (I can't even properly visit the Yahoo group since my IDs are gone, and honestly I want to use just one email from now on, and not have all the messy yahoo ids I used to...). So if you're a fan of the old Ferilon Farm, please do visit and contribute to the Ferilon Farm group!


Since groups here are kind of painful to administrate I'll *try* to make sure that everyone is able to contribute to the gallery folders, and if needed add whatever (for customs, breedings, etc) in a prompt manner. I know that I've had issues with being able to contribute properly to other groups even when I'm an admin, so it might take a little fiddling.

Hey Lethe, I got a quick question for you. I'm putting the finishing touches on the finale of Episode I of my story, and I'm actually going to reference the fan-fics of some of my friends/followers. And I wanted to ask if you would like and/or wouldn't mind if I referenced Reporupsed? It's just a very brief reference by mentioning the title, as follows: 

“That’s what I can do for you! I can tell the galaxy your story! See you get the recognition you deserve!”

“Our story…?!” Shepard beckoned, with an eyebrow raised.

“Yes!” Alex affirmed. “See, I’m Alexănd Farrell - I produce the biggest movies to come out of Illium. I’m the one that produced ‘Repurposed’, ‘Project Vanguard’, ‘Those Left Behind’, ‘The Reign of Unicron’, and of course the ‘Blasto’ series! I can see to it that the galaxy knows the true story of the people that saved them!”

Would that be alright with you?

I just got this and am going to play it with my group.…  Should be fun just like El Monterey Bean and Beef burritos are fun for any group or party!…

I am now being sponsored by El Monterey brand Mexican food.  Don't worry you won't notice much difference.

Hm. Well, that's all right then.

Hi Lethe, Im sort of interested in your "Repurposed" Crossover Fic, but is there anywhere I can find a basic summary before I start reading it?
lethe-gray Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
Thanks for the interest!

Basically it's a mashup of the Fear, Half Life and Portal universes - not a retelling, but a spin so that the two universes are meshed together. The main characters obviously are taken liberally from all the games, but also include a lot of my own (admittedly some mary sueish but hey ;) ) to help give a different angle on things. A lot of dialog is the same, but *who says it* might be radically different, or the way it's said, to whom, etc.

Pretty much I started with the idea, "what would happen if Paxton and his brother were socialized instead of kept apart from other kids growing up," and "in the same universe where Black Mesa and Aperture exist". Imagine a group of very gifted children - like Paxton and his brother (who does get a name) residing not in just a sterile Armacham facility, but in *the Enrichment Center*.

The Resonance Cascade and the Synchronicity Event happen together, and that shapes everything in that universe from that point on. Most of the "events" that take place in the Fear series don't happen as such, because everything in the characters lives takes a drastic turn in 2006 (where as, the games take place in 2027). I do try to work in characters and dialog from all parts of the games, though.

It's my effort to connect things that seem similar - a lot of characters have features that are similar (eyes play a strong role in the visuals of both fear and half life, as do crows/ravens, and certain imagery), so I draw connections between them. It's pretty important to have played at least one or two if not all of the games, to have a good idea of why they'd have those connections. I don't think it's *vital* though.

One thing to note while reading, if you decide to tackle it: it's NOT in chronological order. The "intervals" have several related chapters grouped together with themes, but they may occur decades apart, so all the chapter headings contain vital time/date/location stamps. Some chapters were written and inserted out of order so it's pretty important to keep referring to the journal for the right links.

Always, if you have any questions too, just ask! I love it when new folks start reading. It's a huge story so far and it's NOT finished (not even close, actually) but I have slowed down a lot writing it lately. I also have links to my "reconsideration" chapters - those are my own background thoughts and explanations of each Interval, with some details and revelations about why I would include certain things, or where references come from if they're not obviously in the games. Plus, of course, I have made digital dolls and artwork for the characters, which may come in handy for some references.

I can see you used Alma to reference "Greg's creepy daughter" from the Portal 2 DLC at one point. :iconfunnyplz:
lethe-gray Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
I actually hadn't, but I should :D

Most of the 'portal' era stuff in Repurposed was actually written before I played Portal 2, it was tragic - I'd preordered the game, and it had downloaded, and was 12 hours from release, and my computer died. I didn't get the chance to play for another 3+ months!
