Hello. I'm a big Harry Potter and MTR fan. I suppose I am an expert lurker. I apologize to everyone out there for rarely submitting reviews, or getting involved, although some incredible stories are out there, so they deserve it.
"The Second Petunia" is my first story ever, and concerns the creation of Fritz's family. I am thinking of possibly drawing a comic (sort of ) to illustrate this story, and have posted a copy of the story on http://zaehlas.deviantart.com. No hurries on checking on this yet, I haven't gotten a scanner as of this time (and can barely draw on regular paper, much less on a computer).
"Unraveling" is a short story I came up with in a flash of inspiration. I'm not entirely sure where the idea came from, but from me thinking about it to having it written was about a half an hour. I still think it can make for a larger epic story, but I'll consider that when I'm don't with "Building a Family". If you think of MtR, Terminator, and Matrix all combined, that's kinda the idea I had when writing it.
"Building a Family" is my current work in progress, and is complimentary to "The Second Petunia". I think plenty of stories have been written about Lewis, Wilbur, and Cornelius, and the rest of the Robinsons have barely been touched. This is my views on how the Robinson family as we see it in 2037 comes to be. To help somewhat with the timeline I have established in my head these are the ages of the characters in the year 2007 ("normal" time of the movie):
Lewis - 12
Franny Framagucci - 10
Bud Robinson - 48
Lucille Robinson (Dr. Krunklehorn)- 42
Gaston Framagucci - 13
Art Framagucci - 15
Fritz Robinson - 28
Petunia Robinson - 28
Joe Robinson - 25
Billie Robinson (Bela Kovarik) - 14
I have not set any precise birthdates, and for the purposes of my story, I am ignoring what time of year they (may) have been born. I am trying to reduce my headaches, and not flood my stories with facts that I think are irrelevant to the progression of what I have going. I apologize in advance if this offends anyone.
Each chapter of "Building a Family" will concern a different member of the family, and I will try to make it clear at some point in each chapter when that particular part of the story is taking place. This story will conclude at the birth of Wilbur, with a possible Epilogue.

- Slight modification to the timeline. When I finished Chapter 6, I had forgotten I put 2 years from Chapter 6 to 7, and the way I finished it it will flow better if it's just one year. Progressing on chapter 7 now.
Thanks for the reviews so far. It's been great to get noticed, far better than I thought it would be. I'm going through a rough time in my life, so I guess that's why I gravitate to the "angst" and sorrowful parts of the story, but I still feel like it needs to be told.
Regardless, I hope you enjoy what I've written. If I can bring a little bit of happiness or understanding of my perspective into this world we live in, then I guess I've done my part.
