Bio:

I'm from Canada, now living in the U.S. I watched BOTP as a kid, but only discovered Gatchaman late in 2006. I'm a perpetual grad student who has run out of degrees to pursue and is currently seeking a real job.  In the meantime, I work for a weekly Arts & Culture newspaper.  My main hobby is (surprise!) reading.

Summary:

Early in 2008, rereading some of Guy Gavriel Kay's "The Darkest Road" got me thinking about the classic Arthurian love triangle, and how it might play out in Gatchaman...

Summary:

These fics are the result of a challenge suggested by Unpublished Writer, namely to take one of the 20 Gatchaman episodes that were never used in Battle of the Planets and rewrite it to be a BOTP episode. I selected the Gatchaman episode #102, "A Reversal! Checkmate X!" but the two dream sequences are from another unused Gatchaman episode, #78 "Mortal Combat! 10,000 Meters Under the Sea." Battle of the Planets episodes sometimes used footage from more than one Gatchaman episode, so I figured I could do it too.

I've since done follow-up fics, "BOTPizing" the Gatchaman episode #103, "G-2 Risks Death," and episode #104, "The Evil Grand Black Hole Operation," and episode #105, "Earth's Destruction 0002.".

Episode continuity wasn't stressed so much in Battle of the Planets, but I'm not claiming that these could be actual BOTP episodes –the plots got a little too weird for that and there's very likely still too much that's violent or disturbing for BOTP. However, I've discovered it's not so easy to try to take existing footage, cut out what's unsuitable (ie. violence), come up with new dialogue that matches the speakers in the remaining footage, and then create "filler" to replace the footage that was cut. I have a much greater appreciation now for what the BOTP writers accomplished!
