When Aliens Attack! The ulitmate Toho alien/kaiju fic!
|Good Lord, it's been over 5 years since I posted here last.
During those 5 long years I have been quite busy, and here are the fruits of mine and several other individuals' labors.
Now for me to explain...
Me and some friends from several Godzilla and kaiju based forums have been working on a massive several hundred page fan fiction novel called ‘When Aliens Attack!’ which takes on the following idea…
The premise is this, what if one of the various alien races that plague the Godzilla universe finally succeeded in taking Godzilla out once and for all? Our story addresses this directly as well as the repercussions as various alien races come out of the wood work to lay claim to the Earth and to avenge previous defeats. Also, once word spreads that the mighty king of the monsters has at last fallen, it further spurns the various invaders into action. The Nebulans(the cockroach aliens from Godzilla vs. Gigan)are responsible for Godzilla's defeat with the help of Ghidorah and Gigan, but other races including the Kilaaks(Destroy All Monsters), the Simeons(the Planet of the Apes rejects from Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla), the Planet X Xians(Monster Zero), the Mysterians(from the film of the same name), the Virans(from the Gamera film Destroy All Planets)and last but not least, the Gudis(from the series Ultraman Towards The Future)all want the Earth for themselves now.
With all these respective races come vast amounts of alien weaponry and more monsters than you can shake a stick at. In the meantime the undersea kingdoms of Mu(Atragon)and Seatopia(Godzilla vs Megalon) initiate a reunification with the surface world and the human race to help defend the Earth from the alien invaders, but all is not as it seems on both sides of the fence. Secret alliances are forged and treachery abounds all over.
We combine characters and kaiju from the Showa era(1954-75), the Heisei era(1984-95) and the Millennium films as well. But our story as a whole is deeply steeped and rooted in the Showa era more than anything else. As a result of this sort of...combining, for lack of a better term, certain events in kaiju history have been either altered slightly, changed completely or totally removed depending, but some things have remained exactly the same. We have included allot of background material in links on the top left of the main page along with a timeline to help readers make better sense out of the things that make our story different from the films, we hope that helps.
For this story we have decided to explore and expand on these various aliens which in the films they originally appeared in had little or no character development to speak of. We take a deep look into their political, military and personal lives as we examine the machinations that drive these races to conquer and attempt to understand why they must.
The story also features kaiju from Daiei, Tsuburaya, and other studios along with Toho. Monsters who step up to the plate in Godzilla's absence be it good or evil include Mothra, Gudis, King Kong, King Ghidorah, Gamera, Megalon, Mechagodzila and Titanosaurus. But there are still a ton of other kaiju in this huge close to 500 page book. Like the aliens we try to give the monsters more personality as well as we verbalize their thoughts and implement into our story something that we have come to call kaiju speak, whereas the beasts can actually talk to one another, albeit to any human bystander what they say is unintelligible.
We successfully promoted this story in its early stages at G-FEST 2007, and I did so again at this year's G-FEST just a few weeks ago.
The bottom line is this, none of us ever claimed to be good writers, but that didn't stop us from trying to put together what will hopefully be a fun and very entertaining story for fans of kaiju and science fiction alike.
