New Ficlet: Riddick Fandom!

Spoilers for "The Chronicles of Riddick" (and, by default, "Pitch Black"). There's probably no point reading this unless you've seen the movie. It won't make a lick of sense, otherwise.

Short ficlet; 550 words. Rated PG-13 for bad language. Set during the movie, on Crematoria, Kyra's POV. Somewhat angsty, I guess. Definitely not a bowl of roses.

I've decided I like Vin Diesel. His characters all have such presence, even if the movies themselves suck. "The Chronicles of Riddick", however, doesn't suck. It doesn't come anywhere near sucking. I shall probably end up writing more about it. I'm already well into reading Riddick-fic as is.

Just what I needed... Yet. Another. Fandom. ::le sigh::

Which puts me up to, what? I don't know. I think I've lost count. Hell, I know Vin's other movie, "The Fast and The Furious", was Fandom #48. Does that give you any clue?

And some of you people whine about being involved in five fandoms. Ha! I laugh in your faces, puny mortals. Mwuahahaha!

FYI... for *MY* information! XD

I am in love with the Chronicles of Riddick website. It's like a freakin' treasure-trove of hidden factoids and fun tidbits. I thought I'd get one or two more stories in this fandom, but using the info gleaned from this website, I'll have more bunnies (in CANON!! :D) than I'll know what to do with! I hope they don't ever take this site down. I need it! ::glomps website::

The problem with movie-based fandoms is that they don't usually have a whole lot of canon for the fandom to build on. Just a measley two hours worth of film. That doesn't leave as much room for interpretation as you'd think. But this website is like a COR Bible -- all the background info you wanted, names, dates, histories, technical specs, diagrams, etc... -- it's all there. Much of it is hidden in the "The Hunt for Riddick" game onsite, but it's there.

Fun stuff! I'll be busy exploring for days! Takin' notes, trapping bunnies, planning fics... Woot! A new obsession! ::happy dance::
