The Finding of Wikus - Ch. 1 by MatthiasRat The Finding of Wikus - Ch. 1 by MatthiasRat

It appears you don't have PDF support in this web browser. Download PDF

In addition to posting the first Chapter of my District 9 Fanfiction, I am attempting to post it as a pdf file for reading elegance. I'm a sucker for the nifty things I can do with LaTeX!

Anyway, this is set about two months after District 9 and happens on the same day as my 'Prologue' Waking up Wikus.

I was inspired by [link] High-Guard's (not sure how to do the icon thingie) excellent D9 story, and have used the scenario he left as a starting point. I didn't realize it when I read it, but the characters of Kisa, Prue, Darren, and Anthony all belong to [link] Silvermaid013 whose own work I must read soon!

While I have tried to build off of High-Guard, I do not think I can at this time, try to blend in so much with that Silvermaid013 wrote, which agonizes me, but there's nothing to be done for it. Consider this my own thoughts on what could happen.

I do include some new human characters in this as you'll quickly see, as well as introducing one of my own new Poleepkwa characters. I do hope you enjoy. I am going to try to post a chapter once a week or every other week if I can.

Hah! Made it through the first chappy :iconiloveitplz:

Omg I had almost forgotten about HG's District 10 characters. Took me a moment to realize who Warren was. And I take it the priest is the priest who'll have something to do with Glenda? ^^ I wonder what he'll think of mixed couples :P

Can't wait to see this connect with everything else. You seem to be planning to take on the return of Christopher, or something huge like that.

Thank you so much for reading! :-)

This really directly follows after the little Prologue snippet 'Waking up Wikus' that I wrote while gathering my ideas. At the time I had read High Guard's story but that was about it.

Fr. Bartelozzi is not the priest in question since he's Italian, but we'll meet him in the next chapter. He will not approve of mixed couples which is one of the reasons why I figure he didn't attend those meetings. I figure it's one of those things he and Glenda would have disagreed about, even though both knew that each really wanted to help the Poleepkwa have better lives.

I'm not sure if I'm going to get as far as Christopher's return. That's a lot to do. Especially with the very slow way I write. I'll be lucky to get through a weeks worth of story time by chapter 6! ;-)

Yus^^

Hmm yes, it could be fun to see Glenda and the priest have their disagreements, and both showing their arguments, but then going back to "ah, whatever, we're good pals".

Fff I write very slowly as well. And my story will finish a lot before chris's return too. Best luck to you, my friend!

I don't anticipate any argument they'll have will be very long, but perhaps a few smaller ones that circumstances cut short. We'll see! I've a ways to go before I get there.

My recent purchase of a new computer has set my writing back for almost two weeks, but I should have the next chapter posted this weekend.

I'm looking forward to reading your next chapter too! I just need to spend a little time cleaning up here!

Lucky you for new computer! I'll have to get myself one, when I get a job... Which might not happen in a couple of years at least XD
Your stuff is still in my inbox waiting to be read, but don't worry, I won't erase it till I do. I don' know WHEN I'll finish my own...

What's keeping you from getting a job?

And I'm not worried. I know you'll get to it as I'll get to yours!

Basically it's all the class hours and homework XD I'm still a student, and as long as I can still afford being a student without having to work for it... Well, there's just stuff I want to do first, so I can get the job I DO want^^

I can understand that. Working while a student can be very time consuming. I did that, but then again, I didn't have a choice at the time. At least it was a rewarding experience in the end!
