=======================Writer v2 Stamp by barefootphotos=======================

I am a 22 years old young woman who lives in her imagination on a daily basis. Currently, I am a junior in college majoring in Professional Writing. I've been a freelance writer for 7 years now, as well as a hobbiest cartoonist and digital painter. I am a huge fantasy geek, especially towards dragons, as well as an avid member of the gamer and brony community. Music is a huge part of my inspiration as an artist and will sometimes listen to a song 50 times in a row, driving my family crazy :XD: I've been published three times and have won several writing awards. My writing portfolio includes dozens of poems, several short stories and articles, 3 novellas in progress, and my novel which is half complete. I am always looking to both cultivate my skills as an artist as well as put them to good use. But above all, I love what I do :love:
  • Mood: Fear
  • Listening to: The Beginning is the End is the Beginning
  • Reading: Batman: The Cult
  • Watching: Adventure Time

Hello my beloved watchers!  I have returned from my 2 week vacation to spend some time with Draco-McWherter and ScaryScarab with my head brimming with Dragon Ball Z.

Like a lot of you, I imagine, I have been watching the announcements on the next DBZ movie, Dragon Ball Z: Fukkatsu no F.  As a huge Dragon Ball Z fan and as the author of DBSW, I am both highly excited and wary about the release of this new film.  I've mentioned many times before that one of my primary goals as a writer of fanfiction is to be as true to the original material as possible - that includes making my writings fit as best they can into the actual timeline.  Of course, in that area I have some breathing room since many of the DBZ movies themselves don't fit into the timeline and I don't consider all of them canon (*cough cough* Tarble *cough* Mecha Cooler *cough*).

So what it comes down to for me is that while as a fan I am purely excited, as an author I have to consider how the release of this new material may effect the DBSW expanded universe and the possibility that I may not be able to include it in the DBSW canon.  I certainly hope this will not be the case because I love the idea of having new material to work with.  But at the same time, it is a possible impossibility.

Most likely, the events of the movie will only take place over a few days or hours, knowing how DBZ tends to run.  But if it doesn't, that leaves me the question:  Why did the justice never find out about it and make an appearance.  And there's also the PTOs that appear in the movie.  Are they PTOs that got brought to life with Frieza?  If so, no problem.  But what if Toriyama has the characters say that "oh the PTO has just be waiting around for Frieza's return this whole time".  Such things could be potential problems for DBSW.

Of course, based on things various readers have told me in the past, most of you won't even care if the movie contradicts my writings.  But as a professional, the matter has still been on my mind since the movie was announced.

What do you think?  Will Fukkatsu no F slip nicely into the DBSW timeline?  Or will it cause problems for the headcanons I've established?
