Interests
I remember doing a Journal a while back about some XenoGirl installments that I scrapped.
Well... not everything that I scrap is a XenoGirl story.
There have been MANY projects that I've thought about writing, but in the end decided to scrap, in favor of focusing on my XenoGirl Series.
And at this point, it is fairly unlikely that I will go back and write any of them.
Unless someone decides to commission me to write them of course.
But regardless, here are some old story ideas that I scrapped.

-She Carnage
   
This was an idea that I had, and even talked with AraghenXD about. It was somewhat inspired by the tone of his series Venom Evolution and by the many Female Symbiote Fanfics I had read on DeviantART. I'd wanted to do one of my own. And after reading Carnage: Family Feud, I was in love with the character Tanis Nieves. I loved the section during which she was She-Carnage and felt it was too short-lived. I was planning to do it quickly after XenoGirl #1 and before XenoGirl #2. But after finishing #1, I wanted to go straight into XenoGirl #2, which took longer than I had anticipated.
In the end, I sorta forgot about it and continued pumping out XenoGirl installments. Though it is possible that I may one day go back to it. Who knows.

-Praetorian/Warrior Crossover
    Some of you may remember my very first story I wrote for DeviantART, Praetorian. A series about myself turning into a Praetorian Xenomorph and trying to still live a human life. It was a fun writing exercise for me, but looking back on it, I'm not that proud of the series. As I neared the end chapter of it, I was kinda rushing to get out of that series and move on to other things like Alien Reincarnation.
A friend of mine, NagandEmerald was inspired my Praetorian to write his own story where he transformed into a Warrior Xenomorph. It took place in the same universe as Praetorian, and I made several cameos in it.
We were always planning to do a crossover.
But now, it doesn't look like that'll happen.
I'm not really interested in returning to Praetorian anymore. So, it's pretty doubtful that this crossover will see the light of day. ^^;

-Alien Reincarnation 2
   
Not much to say about this one. :XD:
Essentially, I had an idea back in 2013 about continuing Alien Reincarnation. But after I ended it, I liked the ending I gave it and have since vowed to never make a sequel to Alien Reincarnation. It doesn't need one. ^^;

-Instinct: These Scales Aren't Mine!
   
I had an idea for a series about a girl who found a mystical Velociraptor costume that had the power to turn her into a real Velociraptor. Eventually, the series would crossover with XenoGirl. But in the end, I guess I just lost interest in doing it, and had to work on The Queen's XenoGirl spinoff instead. ^^;
Though I think my upcoming project, Cloaked, had some inspiration from this idea. But Cloaked will not be Crossing over with XenoGirl.

-Biollante's Seed Sequels
   
When the first Biollante's Seed came out, I had planned to make 4 sequels to the story.
Each of them would be inspired by one of the Godzilla films from the 90's. I forgot about them once XenoGirl started.
But when the 2014 Godzilla was just around the corner, the creative juices started flowing and I quickly came up with a great idea for a sequel. I even wrote a preview which you can still read here:
Biollante's Seed 2 Preview by Tristanthejawsfan
But then... my computer suddenly reset itself overnight. I lost EVERYTHING I had on it. Even my old stories. Now I only have the PDFs of them. I'm not enthusiastic about completely reformatting them in Word again.
So, with all my progress on Biollante's Seed 2 gone, I scrapped it because:
A, I didn't have enough time to re-write it and post it like I'd planned.
and B, there was this little thing called GENE BREAKERS just around the corner. :XD:

-ALIEN Isolation: Becoming One with a Monster
   
Alot of you guys probably recall this one. :XD:
I had an idea for an ALIEN Isolation Fanfic with Amanda Ripley becoming trapped inside the Xenomorph's body as if it was a second skin. And being hunted by her old friends, she would be forced to embrace the Xenomorph's instincts in order to survive.
I worked on this one quite a bit.
ALIEN Isolation: B.O.w.a.M. Amanda Ripley Bio by Tristanthejawsfan
ALIEN Isolation: Becoming One with a Monster Prvew by Tristanthejawsfan
But in the end, I was both hoping to do the story before the game came out, and wanting to play the game before I wrote the story. :XD: Of course that didn't work.
And by the time I had time to do it, I had been emotionally drained by Chitin is Her Skin #1 and needed a break.
So now the story has been somewhat scrapped.
It's doubtful that I will return to it. But I still think this one had a good idea behind it. :)

So there you have it.
Will I ever write these? Who knows. I'm always planning my stories schedule and re-working dates and orders of them. So we'll see.
But let's just hope that my new story idea, Cloaked, doesn't join them in the scrap heap. ^^;

Have you ever had a moment in a TV Show or a Film, where you are so emotionally invested in what's happening to the characters or the situation they are in, that it actually becomes hard for you to watch? I'm not talking about gore that makes you squirm, or tragic scenes that make you cry. I'm talking about that tricky to hit midpoint where you are both cringing and feeling heartbroken by what's happening to the characters on screen. Moments that are just rough on you, emotionally.
It happens a few times for everyone I think.
Anyways, I decided to pick my personal top 5 of these moments.
You may or may not disagree with my choices. If you disagree with them strongly, go make your own list! :XD:

Also, SPOILER WARNING SPOILER WARNING!
This Journal will contain huge spoilers.





#5: The Death of Murphy (Robocop 1987)

From my first viewing of the original Paul Verhoven film, I have always been impressed with the fact that we spend roughly only 10 minutes with Peter Weller as Officer Alex Murphy before her is gunned down by Clarence Boddicker and his gang. And yet, in just that span of time, we get enough character moments with him to feel terrible for the guy when he dies. We know so little about his life as Murphy before he becomes a machine, and I've always liked that. We know as much about Alex Murphy as Robocop does later on, which only makes it all the more painful. Not to mention, that the death he gets is an insanely brutal one. A horrible way to bite the dust. 
There are actually a few other scenes in this film that I find heart-wrenching. But none of them are as hard to watch as this one.


#4: The Possession of Ryuko (Kill la Kill)
    
What? A scene in the cartoony anime Kill la Kill that Tristan has a hard time watching? There couldn't be...
Yes, I am a big fan of Kill la Kill, fanservice or not. I enjoy the satirical, self-aware sense of humor that it possesses. But just because Kill la Kill is largely a comedy-action series with lots of fanservice and looney toons style humor, doesn't mean there isn't anything to it. On the contrary, the series is actually very heartfelt at times and even goes to some dark places. Particularly in the last third. But as fun as this series is, there is a section of 2 episodes that I always have a hard time watching.
LOOK AWAY IF YOU DON'T WANT SPOILERS!!!
And that is the section of the story where Ryuko's mother Ragyo, forces her to wear the Kamui Junketsu against her will. And by doing so, Ragyo manipulates the threads of Ryuko's mind, planting a series of false memories of a happy life together. Ending with a creepy image of Ryuko at the alter, as the bride to a faceless man who represents clothing and life fibers themselves.

    Now with Ryuko bent to her will, Ragyo sends her to kill her other traitorous daughter. Satsuki.
Satsuki is forced to put on Ryuko's former outfit Senketsu in order to stand any chance of winning.
During these scenes, with Ryuko attacking her former friends, I feel saddened whenever Ryuko insults Senketsu. Saying that she'd never wear a half-assed getup like him again. And calling her best friend Mako a clueless idiot that should keep her mouth shut.
On my first watching of the show, I didn't think they'd be able to get Junketsu off of Ryuko. I honestly thought that the fight would end with Satsuki being forced to kill her younger sister and become the lead for the rest of the series, trying to avenge Ryuko.
The scene gets especially dark when Mako and Senketsu manage to tap into Ryuko's mind and try and free her.
Instead... this happens:

The concept of the hero being turned evil isn't new by any means. But here it was executed in such a way that every time I re-watch Kill la Kill, I cringe when I get to this story arc. Because I always remember how hard it is on my emotions.
But thankfully, it ends in one of the most triumphant moments I've seen in Anime. :)


#3: Jesse and Celine's Fight (Before Midnight)
    
I'll assume many of you have never heard of the Before Trilogy. Understandable. It is a trilogy of french-american arthouse films.
The 3 films (Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, and Before Midnight) are about two people, Jesse and Celine (Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy), who meet one year in Europe and fall in love. Each film in the series not comes out 9 years after the last one, but also takes place 9 years after the last one. Because of this, each film shows off their relationship in a new light as well as in a new stage, each film getting deeper than the last.
Anyway, by the time we get to the 3rd film, Jesse and Celine have finally gotten together and have 2 twin daughters. But them getting together came at the cost of Jesse having to divorce his wife and not see his son as often.
After an entire summer of having to take care of the kids, the 2 finally get a night alone to walk through Greece. But when the sun sets, so does their romance.The two of them erupt into a furious and tense fight. Something they hadn't done until the 3rd film.
It is a very tense fight as their romance virtually falls to pieces.
I couldn't find a clip of the argument, so I won't quote or spoil it. But I will leave a trailer here for you guys to get a bit of an idea.



#2: A Small Pile of Hinges (Schindler's List)
Now Schindler's List is a very emotionally powerful film.
There are many scenes from it that are hard to watch.
But my personal pick of them, is the scene when Goeth is looking at the working Jews to find ones that he can kill in order to make room for new workers. He inspects one worker who's making hinges, and decides to time the man to see how fast he can make a hinge.
The worker is able to make one impressively fast. However, Goeth notes that the worker has only made a small pile of hinges in the amount of time he has worked. He drags him outside for execution. But his gun jams when he fires it.
I think everything leading up to the gun jamming is very effective and tense suspense.

While it seems a little odd that both of Goeth's guns manage to jam, the scene still works very well.
There are many scenes from Schindler's I always remember. But this one that I always go back to when talking to friends at school. :)


#1: Pick a scene (Elfen Lied)
Love it or hate it, Elfen Lied is without a doubt, the hardest thing I've ever sat through.
Some people call it forced or emotionally manipulative, even tonally unbalanced.
And I can understand those arguments perfectly. But, I'm often a sucker for series that are shrouded in controversy.
Elfen Lied is one of my favorite Animes. But it still grips me emotionally every time I watch it.
To anyone who is considering trying out this series, I have to say in advance, DO NOT WATCH ALL 13 EPISODES IN ONE DAY!
I binge watched them all in one night the first time I watched it, and had a heavy emotional breakdown. No other series or film has caused me to have such a reaction. And that is why Elfen Lied takes the #1 spot on this list.
As for which moment in the series is the hardest to watch?
I can't say. There are too many moments to count. Pick any moment honestly. It's a rough show.
