Chapter 63: Afterword
What an epic marathon of a saga you've created here, Star Trek or otherwise. A really impressive accomplishments. I may have been prolific over my years of writing my own niche of fan fiction, but I'm not sure I have undertaken anything on this scale, of such a consistently high level of quality over such a relatively short period of time.
That's really what impressed me the most. There is, no doubt, a lot of great, high quality fan fiction out there I admire greatly, but much of it is limited and takes a long time to develop, then there is a lot of writing produced quickly with mediocre results.
Hunter is truly the best of both worlds. As with any Trek fan fic, I didn't alway agree with your choices of what is or isn't canon or your interpretation of the Trek universe, but I respected all of them because, at the end of the day, you really made them work for the story you wanted to tell.
For me, when I read fan fiction my two most important ingredients are usually story and characters, and Hunter delivers on both, and then some.
Congratulations on this outstanding accomplishment and as to the question more from you in the future, either Hunter or other Trek, the answer is a resounding, yes please!
Thanks for the kind words! It was (and unfortunatley remains) a bit of an obsession.
At the moment I'm developing a story around the blue wizards, but I'm far from beginning to set ink (or pixels) to it.
STH was a great learning exercise in how to develop a long form story. I'd really like to try to create something marketable - hopefully with some sponsorship. But the old model of geting an agent and a contract is probably no more viable in writing that it is in music. So I'm investigating going with the Patreon route.
I can't really do that with Trek - but unfortunately, I do have another Trek cast and story banging about in my head and probably more formed than any of my other writing ideas.
