So, I did it. It’s short, only 1550 words, but it doesn’t have to be long to get across the nasty point. Ladies and gentlemen, because it had never been done before, I took up the mantle and wrote it myself, the missing scene from Tron: Data Flow.

    What an … interesting introduction to your works. I don’y know if any of it was from somme other source somewhere (having only seen the movie myself) but if not, you managed to add levels of reality to the Tron universe in what is almost a throw-away story. I greatly look forward to working my way through the archives here 🙂

    Zengar: I find it interesting that this is what it takes to get people to come to my site and read the rest of the material. I do hope that the “throw away” is worth it; it’s been in my workbox for a couple of months.

    I wouldn’t say that this is what it takes per se, as the feature that got me interested was the attention to detail you displayed in setting the scene. Despite the fact that someone could reasonably dismiss this a ‘mere slash,’ you told a (short) story here. On the other hand, its subject matter was probably why someone felt decided to post the link that I followed to get here, so there you go.

    Oh, and by the way I meant “throw away” in that it’s unconnected to any other story and based on someone else’s work, not anything to do with quality. So far I’ve enjoyed what else I’ve read, especially Aimee, Although I’m somewhat daunted by the sheer volume of the Journal Entries.

    It’s worth it, Zengar. I’ve been a fan of the Journal Entries since I stumbled across them in 1999… Elf weaves a wonderful world, akin to Iain Banks’s Culture in its complexity.

    Wow. I think you win the “King of Slashfic” award… And I agree with Zengar, this feels completely in-universe, with all the stuff you added and the feel you gave it.

    Kind of funny to see something as out there as Tron/Sark pop up on the website of one of my favorite SF authors.
