Story- Zootopia: Shadows in the Dark


[Sci-Fi] [Mystery] [Rated T-16] [COMPLETE]
I admit, I was a little unsure about this one at first, but if you can get behind the grim atmosphere and the sci-fi premise, it's a very interesting read.  It even contains some surprisingly deep insight into the backstory of Zootopia world itself.  Only the first in a saga too, so there's plenty to go around. ~ Berserker
CYBORGS! ~ Andy Lagopus

Author: AgentExeider

Description: It has been one year since their first case.  Officers Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde must solve a mystery that's been hiding in plain sight.  But, once uncovered, the implications could change them and Zootopia forever.

  1. Reading this story reminds me of something.
    Ever since watching the original movie, I've had this huge passion to create original work however I can to show my love of Zootopia.
    However, I didn't have the skills built up from previous fandoms or just having experience in the field.
    It's kind of a dilemma I have every time I see a great piece of Zootopia fan work:
    "Wow this is so great! I really want to make something like this! Let's see... no, that's not right... her's is so much better than mine... it doesn't look right... the story isn't fitting together... it isn't in depth... oh well, maybe I'll keep going and next month it will turn out better."
    I get stuck with this sequestered yearning to show what I can do.
    (Sorry if this is mushy/depressing, but the comments are for how we feel about the posts, right? Well, that's how I feel.)

    1. Well, remember the motto:
      Try Everything!
      And don't compare your stuff to other people's- I'm just as willing to feature a fun little piece of fluff as an epic saga. If you have an idea you'd like to explore, write it out and send it in!

    2. One of the best ways to improve your writing is to read a lot of good stuff. I always recommend classics, if they interest you, because the standard of writing can be much higher than nowadays, I think. I grew up reading (and still love to read) authors like Jules Verne, Poe, Doyle, Mary Schelley (Frankenstein is absolutely brilliant, but DEPRESSING, damn, son!) etc. The more you read, the better your writing will get.

      And then, like Andy said, just write something! It can be less intimidating to write a short piece than a multi chapter. Perhaps focus on a little slice of life or something.

      Good luck!

    3. I know what you mean. When I started to write Fallout: Zootopia, I was nervous that it wouldn't be good and that I'd get a lot of negative feedback. I still did it anyways, expecting someone small and simple. I was ecstatic when nearly every chapter had positive reviews.

      So, long story short, just write something. Even if you think it isn't as good as other things out there, you may just be pleasantly surprised.

    5. Wow.
      When I wrote that comment, I half thought, "This should be a place for people to be happy, not a place for me to tell everyone how I feel upset. Maybe I should keep my emotions to myself and not post this."
      Yet, you helped me out.
      Thanks so much. This community is amazing.
