Against any better judgement I might have had at some point in time or another, I'm going to revive this site. However, it will no longer be for strictly written fiction. Visual Novels, IFs, and other such productions will be gladly accepted and posted at the discretion of me and the (largely non-existent) staff. Also: Expect a few more stories. I'm officially putting Andromeda 108 on hold for now. I may end up tweaking and re-writing the whole thing eventually, anyway.
Well, it's been a hell of a run for my first series, but in the end, I just couldn't do it. I'm gonna have to pull the plug on all installments of Convert. The story was closed out well enough in the first book, so I see no purpose of bringing it back for another run. Sorry. As for the retelling, I just couldn't get into the groove. I didn't feel it. Anyway, I apologize to those who were looking forward to the books. I'm genuinely sorry. In significantly less depressing news, I am working on another book, while still hammering out the pages in Andromeda 108. Expect more on that soon. No, we're not a dying site. Don't worry, I'm not gonna let this site die THAT easily. Things are just slow for now. So,bear with me for a bit, but Reflux Productions is gonna blow your minds!
Okay, Broken: A Dystopian Story was released today, and I'm finishing up with Andromeda 108.
Can there be a utopia in a dystopia? Can one truly be happy being dominated by a state? Is it possible for one to be oppressed by freedom? Essentially, can there be a Heaven in Hell? I wish to explore all of this and quite a bit more in my newest idea, called Broken: A Dystopia. The idea came after reading "Brave New World", where the characters were oppressed by illusions of happiness and lies. I wondered: "Can you be oppressed by ACTUAL freedom? Can you be truly happy with being put down, simply because it literally is the best thing for the world?" So I'm adding a spin. The main character actually realizes what's going on, but there's a catch. He's one of the people who benefit most from this oppression, being an upper-class citizen. To muddy things up a bit more, I make it obvious from the beginning that he won't change much, if anything, much like 1984, and much unlike other Dystopian novels such as The Hunger Games. I want to ask with the book, if everyone is told that 2+2=5, and the one person who believes otherwise knows he can do nothing about it, can 2+2 still be 4? It'll be a wild ride, especially with me winding down on Andromeda at the same time. Expect an update on that soon. Until then, this is an official announcement of my next book, Broken: A Dystopia. It'll be relatively short, only about ten pages, but I'll be sure to make it worth your while!
It's been two months since Reflux Productions was founded with a laptop, a notebook, and a dream. Since then, I've gotten a staff member, 6 readers to sign up, and a bunch of other readers from all over the world! I want to thank you all for the help, and you should know that this wouldn't be possible without you, the readers. There are a few specific members that I'd like to thank personally. Odin, thanks for the support from the WBO and Otaku Space. One of my first regular readers, you've been a vital part of this site, especially when you comment on my books. I still remember the feedback from you saying that you liked The Tactician, and always had something to say while reading "Andromeda 108". Thanks, man. Next is Sparta. At first, you did turn me down on my offer to join up with Reflux Fiction. I respect that. What makes you so awesome is that you turned around and changed your mind after seeing what I had made. And you pointed out major flaws in my stories. I can't thank you enough. One of the founding members of Otaku Space really helped Reflux Productions along, so even if he hasn't signed up yet, I've got to give props to Bey-Heart. Without Otaku Space, who knows where I'd be? And last, but nowhere near least, I have to thank...everyone else! You've all been amazing, sticking with me during the slow days, waiting for weeks to read the new books. Thanks to all, and here's to many more works from us coming your way! "Now, let's roll up our sleeves, and get to work!"-Death, Soul Eater.
I was recently alerted that the storyline of Convert was similar to that of High School of the Dead, a popular anime. I assure you, no plagiarism went into this story, the closest thing is the ending paying slight homage to Mother 3's ending. This will NOT happen again, I can assure you. It was very embarrassing to hear this from Sparta, seeing as he explicitly asked if I had seen High School of the Dead, as if I were being accused of something. (Just stating the embarrassment, you didn't blame anyone, Sparta.) At the time, I had not, but after watching it for myself, I had to agree. There were many similarities. I can personally assure you, Reflux Fiction/Productions NEVER plagiarizes. Ever. It's just not right. This was an isolated incident, and will never happen again. Similarities may be seen, but nothing will ever mirror a storyline as closely as Convert did with High School of the Dead. I thank you all for the consideration and the leeway in this matter. We will not need such leeway in the future.
