Fanfiction Profile


Planned genres of my fiction works: Biography, Mystery, Historical, Romance, Humor, Western, Sci-Fi, Manga and General.

Notes: There will be absolutely NO SWEARING in any of my stories.

Much of my stories will make reference to some classical music pieces (I.e. The background music for some scenes in my stories or the musical piece the character is listening to).

Heads up: Most of my fiction work may consist of a mix of English and Chinese, which will be accommodated with translations.

Example: 英文 (English)

Italics or underlined indicate that the character is speaking or thinking in a language other than English and Mandarin Chinese.

Legend:

Dialogue/Thoughts - French

對話/想法 (Dialogue/Thoughts) - Japanese

對話(Dialogue) - Another Chinese dialect (I.e. Cantonese)

My characters and stories are of my creation, so NO copying my stories.


Favourite ideas to explore and elements to use in stories:

  • Sense of humour, used especially to lighten up a serious situation.
  • The idea of different dimensions, universes
  • A humourous way to describe an event or narrate a story (For example: Describing someone looking foolish all in a sudden before slumping to the ground indicates that someone has hit him/her in the head)

In spite of that, the professor does have a reputation as an excellent mathematician and great teacher and is highly regarded by students and his colleagues alike. That reputation is threatened, however, when a string of robberies reminiscent of those organized by the professor's infamous granduncle strikes Ottawa-Hull, and things become complicated when a teaching assistant working with the professor was found murdered.

    May 1976 - A Whistleblowing Case in Hong Kong

However, his staying at a flat where a whistle-blower, who holds the key to a major corruption case implicating several of Hong Kong's finest, is hiding at led him into an unexpected adventure as he and the whistle-blower are chased by police, who are bent in stopping the whistle-blower from turning the incriminating evidence over to the Independent Commission Against Corruption.

During a ride on the Canadian after returning from Vancouver for a conference, Garfield stumbles upon another mystery when the Montreal-bound train was forced to come to a complete stop in the middle of the Rockies as a result of the discovery of a body left on the tracks. The mystery deepens when it is revealed that the victim intended to whistleblow on a mining company's fraudulent practices surrounding a land deal.

    April 1983 - Garfield and the Secret of the Broken Window

    A couple weeks after Garfield started his first full-time job as a licensed professional engineer, a chance hanging out with colleagues at Billings Bridge one Saturday morning led him to reunite with someone he haven't spoken much to after graduating from Carleton University - Rebecca Lee, who recently started her new job at an architectural firm. The duo will later cross paths again when Garfield travels to Morrisburg for a conference, only to later come upon a mystery when a former OPP police inspector was found dead in a room with a broken window in his home - a mystery that becomes a murder investigation and leads to something related to Garfield and Rebecca's respective feelings deep down in their hearts.

    Locations:

    Note: All real-life locations mentioned in my stories are fictionalized

    Dimension Four:

    In terms for world affairs and boundaries, the world of Dimension Four is going to be semi-anachronistic:

  • Examples of defunct monarchies that are still active in the present-day: The German Empire, Austria-Hungary, Italy, Greece, the Ottoman Empire, Korea, Ethiopia, Laos, Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iran, all in the form of stable, democratic parliamentary constitutional monarchies
  • The Indian subcontinent is encompassed by a federal parliamentary republic in the form of the Indian Union (Itself divided into three constituent countries)
  • The pre-1949 Republic of China (Excluding Mongolia and Taiwan) is still in control of the mainland, aside from being a stable, semi-presidential republic with the status as the world's largest democracy and largest social-welfare state
  • The United Kingdom only consists of England, Scotland and Wales as of 1921, with the fictionalized Republic of Ireland (Who's still a member of the Commonwealth of Nations) encompassing both real-life Ireland and Northern Ireland
  • In terms for passenger rail in Canada, the world of Dimension Four is going to be semi-anachronistic:

  • Examples of defunct rail services that are still active in the present-day: The Super Continental and the Atlantic
  • The Confederation Bridge linking Prince Edward Island to New Brunswick is a road and rail bridge, with daily VIA Rail service linking Charlottetown, PEI, with the New Brunswick cities of Moncton, Fredericton and Saint John
  • There are two rail links to Newfoundland: One through a rail bridge from Labrador and Quebec and the other through a rail tunnel from Sydney, Nova Scotia. Both rail links terminate at St. John's
  • The VIA Rail-operated Canadian continues to use its 1950s and 1960s CP Rail routings, connecting Vancouver on the west end with Toronto or Ottawa and Montreal on the east end
  • VIA Rail continues to serve Ottawa Union Station, though the real-life Ottawa Railway Station at Tremblay that opened in 1966 in real life is opened in 1977 as a temporary station while Ottawa Union Station in downtown undergoes renovations with the tracks electrified and twinned and moved to underground tunnels in the downtown core. Following the reopening of Ottawa Union Station in 1983, the temporary station at Tremblay is renamed as Ottawa East Station
  • LRC is the name of VIA Rail's high speed rail service adapted from the Bombardier LRC trainset that entered service in 1982, though unlike its real-life counterpart, the LRC is electric-powered and is of push-pull formation (With later models shifting towards electric multiple unit)
  • MOOSE Rail is the primary operator of commuter and regional rail in the Ottawa-Hull region, having had taken over operations from VIA Rail, CP Rail and CN Rail in the 1990s
  • All rail lines in the Ottawa-Hull region that were torn down since the 1950s and 1960s in real life are still in use today, aside from minor adjustments in the routings if applicable
  • Montreal Windsor Station is still active as a railway station as with Ottawa Union Station
  • Ottawa And Yet by Komik reviews
    Any Canadian will find this veeery interesting. Anyone else will, too, but to a slightly lesser extent.
