New fiction in the Menagerie universe, following Marvel’s “Phase” system for the MCU.
- “Summer Time” and “Coffee With Colin” are in canon, and timed around the summer vacation after the seniors graduated
- Phase 2 is the first couple of years of college for the main characters
- Like the MCU’s Phase 2, the goals are to introduce or expand on the PCs’ supporting characters, plus add new places and situations
Stories can be seen in creation order using this link: Menagerie Phase 2 - Menagerie Forum
The playground is open!
If you want to write your own stuff, do it! Here’s my conventions for naming and tagging:
- The 100-series posts are all past tense, and are sort of establishing situations
- There’s going to be some 200-series posts that are the real meat of the stories we’re telling here, written in present tense
- Tag your posts with the major figures in them
- Since everything here is fiction, don’t bother with cutscene/recap/whatever tags
- I tagged existing posts with meu (“menagerie extended universe”) as a reminder of things I wanted to cover
Currently mulling over things. Really want to revisit (and finish) my Tribunal series because what I had in mind for that would have a huge impact on future Adam stories. Just got to do it but…
Since I have own 50K-and-growing Jalycia tale going on, I probably won’t actively contribute unless something really inspires me, but I’ll try to constructively kibitz along the way.
I know I definitely appreciate this because I frequently require a bit of a push across the starting line (and finish line… and the water stations along the course sometimes) on these sort of projects.
