About Me: 

I was born in 1970. This means that I was 8 years old when BoTP debuted. Like most American fans around my age, BoTP was my introduction to anime.  G-2 was my first cartoon crush. Yes, at the tender age of 8, I had an affinity for the "rebel". :)

I saw the Gatchaman OAV around 1999 or so, when my then boyfriend, now husband sent me a copy of it.  He was also a BoTP fan as a child and when he sent me the OAV, that's when I learned that BoTP wasn't an "original" show.

I did not see an episode of Gatchaman until I was in my 30s. I saw a few episodes that were included in the DVD's that Rhino released of BoTP. Then ADV put out the entire series and the rest, they say, is history.

I currently live in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. I am an undergraduate at South Dakota State University and my major is psychology.  And yes, whenever my husband and I cross the state and head for the Black Hills, we crack Lava Jesus jokes whenever we're in the vicinity of  Mount Rushmore. 

I don't have much time these days to write for fun. However, I have a lot of Gatch/BoTP related freewriting in a safe place should I find the time to write and revise.

Oh, and I still dislike 7-Zark-7 immensely.  ;-)

You can find me on Twitter--my handle is @PrairieChzHead 

I also spend too much time on Pinterest. You can find me there at http://pinterest.com/msannomalley  

I also dabble in art. As in drawing, not Art as in Garfunkel. Because that would be weird.  http://deviantart.com/msannomalley

This review is for the whole trilogy and I really, really loved this, especially the idea that Red Impulse is such a douche that he's really working for Galactor. (I'm not a fan of Red Impulse, so his being portrayed as an extra bag of douche doesn't bother me). I thought you handled writing from his POV really well, too. :) 

Summary: So what REALLY is wrong with Joe's health? Is it a piece of shrapnel lodged in his brain, or is he ill for an entirely different reason?

Date: 02/16/2015 Title: Chapter 1: A Different Diagnosis

A couple of weeks ago, in my Psych 101 class, we covered a chapter on neuroscience & the brain and I immediately thought of Joe, his head injury, and what is medically accurate and artistic license in his story. So I had to come back and re-read this after many years. Science has come further on the brain and TBI since this was originally written, so it would also be kind of interesting to see if any of the new data and science that has been discovered between the time that this was originally written and now (February 2015) would change this. 

Interesting stuff. :)  

Summary:

Set during Gatch I, before Katse manages to construct a machine that will force the team out of birdstyle so he can see who they are. Let’s just say he had some false starts along the way…landing Joe in the BotP universe.  

This is in response to the "It was a dark and stormy night" challenge.  Heaven knows I can't write anything short enough to qualify as a vignette.  *grin*

The robot’s antennae shot straight up in the air, quivering.  “Oh, Susan!”  He giggled. 

I have no idea how one programs a robot to giggle.

“I hope I’m not…interrupting something,” she breathed. 

She sounded like a phone sex operator.

“I just…wanted to make sure you got…the message I sent…on your monitors,” she said.

I wondered if she’d sent him porn.


and...

He was like a crazy old lady on crack.

Too funny!!

I originally read this at the old archive.  It took me awhile to get through it, but I was so riveted to this story, I had to keep reading it through the end. 

This is probably the most well-written piece of fan fiction (, I have ever had the pleasure of reading in any fandom.   Your characterizations are so believeable and so true and I really liked how to were able to change some things from canon and make it seem as if they were canon (i.e. set in New York City).  

Summary:

This is part of my Blood Line series. While one member of G-Force may have met the love of his life, another may have met the one that will kill him.

I'm really loving this story and I can't wait to read more. :) I love your interpretation of Jason.

Is it just me, or does it look like Ghost Koji is kind of flipping the bird as he rides off into the Great Stunt Racing Venue in the Sky?

I've enjoyed what you have so far. I'm looking forward to reading more. PS: In this story, you kind of validated something I thought about Princess if I take the actual show and how she is portrayed on it at face value. :)

Author's Response: This fic has a history some of you who are newer members don't know, MS. Let's just say I had to have an antagonist for BJ. I'd love tp post more but the site will no longer allow me. I'm glad you're enjoyng it.
