Salvation Hiatus Status by EspionageDB7

So this update has been a long time coming, I just haven't had the chance to post it. This will be a pretty big update so first thing's first.

Official Hiatus
If you haven't guessed it yet folks, the next episode (or the next season, as I've taken to calling it) of Salvation is officially on hold. Salvation the Series is on official hiatus. I am happy to report that this hiatus, unlike several that I've had in the past, is not due to family hardships or financial difficulties, but rather because of lack of time due to my involvement in several other projects (more details on that below).

As I've said in the past I have zero intentions of abandoning or forgetting Salvation, I'm just putting it on the back-burner for a little while. I wrapped up two full-length installments that I'm very pleased with, and I feel like my small but loyal fanbase (and you all know who I'm talking about, you all have my many thanks for being my fans) has enough content there to keep them entertained for a while ;P

Truth be told, I think a lot of people have sort of lost interest in Salvation. I was a bit underwhelmed from the response I got on my Interview With The Legends idea I posted (which will still be happening by the way, eventually, just later on). I expected more responses, more questions posted, etc. And although I am grateful to those that posted, and not really upset at the lack of response. I just felt like people didn't have the enthusiasm about it that I hoped they had. So I think a break from my fan fic isn't a bad thing right now. Each installment will come, along with the shorts, in time. I'm just taking a break. You understand :)

Other Projects
Okay, so... I said there'd be a few details on some of the other projects I'm working on, and here they are. Now, I can't/won't go into too many details as some of these are joint efforts and I don't want to comprimise anything, but I will at least talk a little bit about some of the stuff I got going on, and hopefully get some people enthused about that. 

- The Human Condition - 
This is an original novel idea I'm working on. The Human Condition is a working title and subject to change, but the basic premise of this story revolves around a man who is one of many agents sent to Earth to evaluate it and assess it. Once The Great Assessment has been made, the verdict is extinction... He represents those who are mankind's greatest threat, but instead he will rise up to be it's greatest ally. The protector of the earth. 

- As Yet Untitled "Detective Cat" Project -
Detective Cat... Yeah, that sounds appealing doesn't it? Lol, I intend for the story to be a lot more serious than that sounds, although the premise is rather Disney-esque. But I think in the long run, based on the concept, I can make a compelling story that will be a fun read for all ages (though my target audience will be teens thru adults). Premise for this one is a stray alley-cat, through a strange set of circumstances, finds himself suddenly able to breach the communications gap with humans. He finds himself the pet of an ambitious young detective, and his daughter only to also find himself at odds with a vicious and notorious crimelord, and his own doppelganger.

- The Caleb Tapes -
This is a cooperative effort between myself and a very close friend, whose partnership we've come to call The English Rose Production Company. This is of course just two guys with creative ambitions and high hopes, but we're hoping that what we spawn out will be the start of something grand. "The Caleb Tapes" another working title that is subject to change will, for a change, not be a novel, but rather an audio drama. We're going to be diving deep into the mind of a psychopath. A tormented soul whose own inner demons get the better of him, and send him down a dark and twisted path into madness and murder. This production is going to be done completely via audio, with no video, but it will be done in classic "found footage" format, ala Blair Witch Project and Cloverfield. Imagine walking down the street one day, and find a lost personal tape recorder. What you'd hear when you played this would shock you to the core... (At least that's what we'll be going for)

- The Alone Project -
All of these are working titles. And unfortunately I cannot delve into too much detail with this one, but I can tell you that I was recently asked by my good friend Eudaimonium to be part of an ambitious video game project. I was invited to be one of the creative team members/writer for an indie suspense/horror game. Again, like I said, since I am not working alone on this, I can not divulge too much information, but I will tell you we think our final project will be gold. We've come up with, what I think, is a dynamite original idea, and if we can pull it off, it will be an awesome, immersive video game experience. This of course will be in development for a while to come, no ETA on a finish date, but it's something to expect. 

Gatekeeper Reviews
With all that being said, I'd like to take a moment to promote a fellow writer and deviant. My long time friend, fan, supporter, collaborator, and all around great guy Vadrigos has recently started a blog page where he will be reviewing various video games, new and old, established and obscure, professional and indie, called Gatekeeper Reviews. My young friend aspires to be a professional video game reviewer one day, and I think he's off to a roaring start. He's only recently started, but already has some very concise, thought-provoking and in-depth reviews of Gunpoint, Doom 3, and Penumbra: Overture - In the Mind of Madness. Please head over to his blog site and pay his reviews a read!


You may find his reviews make you want to play a game you never even considered before, or they may be the thing that gets you off the fence to one side or another, if there's a game your thinking about play ;P. As I said, please pay his site a visit and show him some support! 

In Closing
In closing, as always, I want to thank my loyal friends, fans, and followers, however few or many of you there may be, for always being there. Though Salvation may be being put on hiatus, this does not mean you can not expect any more content from me. I expect to continue photoshopping new things, and as I've disclosed I have several rather ambitious projects in the works. Those who have stood with me and stood by me will be among the first to preview and read these final products. It is my dream one day to make a career out of being a professional writer, and I feel like with these projects I'm taking my first steps :D - And it is you my Salvation Fans who will get the first auto-graphed copies of my books! (lol yeah that doesn't sound arrogant at all, does it?). Anyway, stay tuned for more works from me. Stay safe, and stay happy! Love and Hugs all! :dance: :hug:

My name is Jesse De La Rosa and I don't know if I consider myself an artist or not, but I know that I do enjoy making creations in photoshop. Most of what I do is logos, websites, wallpapers, and general graphic touching up. I'm always looking to expand my graphic knowledge and I try to learn something new everyday.

I also don't know if I'd consider myself a writer or not, but I am the author of SALVATION: A Half-Life/Mass Effect Universe Fan Fiction which intertwines the paths of two legendary heroes of gaming; Dr. Gordon Freeman and Commander John Shepard, as they attempt to stand against an enemy bent on annihilating all life in the known galaxy.

Hi Jesse,

I wanted to ask if you have a account, because I am considering leaving deviantart, but would like to keep contact with my buddies here, so I've been asking all my friends here.

( is an art site similar to this one)

Hmm no I don't, but I wasn't aware of the site. Maybe I'll make one.

on a side note, when my 3d story, The Kitsune's Tail, is finished, I'm thinking about making a credits sequence like you've been doing with your fics, and if all goes according to plan, you'll be appearing in the credits (in the form of a 3d model I put together to represent you in 3D) along with some other friends of mine.

Thought you'd like to know :D

How goes things?
EspionageDB7 Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
How go things? Well... A fat woman walked into the insurance office today, and after dislodging the bones of a rather large bird, like an ostrich or an emu, from between her teeth, she plopped herself down and said "I need something that'll provide me adequate coverage". So I said, in the most polite way possible... "Hmm... Well, madam, have you tried the Ozone layer? It's a little depleted, but I think it may just suffice." After mooing a rather long strain of unpleasantries at me from her hangar-like mouth, I asked her to leave - as our building's insurance policy didn't cover the earthquake damage she was about to cause from her fat jiggling in anger... She humpty-dumptied herself out the door, with my chair still lodged on her ass, and as I sat contemplating my sad, pitiful existence as an insurance salesman, sobbing "oh god, this is my life!" into my palms, I suddenly felt thankful, and realized it could be so much worse. After all... I could've been that chair.

Lol, sorry I couldn't resist. Anyway, to be serious. Things have been going okay - just been real busy lately due to work. It's tax season so the days have been pretty hectic. When I get home I don't even feel like hopping on the computer or anything. But I'm still around - Been trying to work on my first short, just not getting too much free time to get much done. I'm actually gonna start working on my next movie poster for Lair of the Shadow Broker soon - the official movie poster, so that'll be fun. But other than that, still around, just a little scarce. How 'bout you? How you dong?
