Tales from Free Country USA
PLEASE NOTE THIS PAGE IS A WIP; THANKS IN ADVANCE
Tales from Free Country USA (previously titled Tales of a Teenage Boy) is a comedy-romance-drama series created by Marzistar2366 in 2013. It is considered to be a reboot of the original Homestar Runner webseries, which is on hiatus as of 2013.
After the defeat of Deep Claw and Blade, Specs settles down in Free Country USA with her new boyfriend Homestar Runner Jr. With their friends Palm-Palm, Milestone, Homezipan, Know-it-Ally, Violet Blue, Monocle, Jack-Jack, and Star Bad, the teens of FCUSA have many tales to tell.

Background[edit | edit source]
I originally got into the Homestar Runner fandom back in 2007, and the first Strong Bad email I watched was "business trip", during the Lappy 486 era. As months passed, I watched most of the toons, played most of the games, and had plenty of laughs. But it didn't last forever as the website went on hiatus in October 2009, with a few toons in 2010, then went on hiatus for good. I hope one of those days, the website will make a grand return, and not just for a joke, mind.
But enough of me and the original site; it's MY series you wanna know about. Not too long ago, I discovered DeviantArt, joined, and made friends there, some are Homestar fans like I am. Then I started to make some of my own characters, and with a few characters from my friends, this eventually evolved into a series. The original "movie" was written in 2011/2012, with two stories which I dubbed as part of a series, Tales of a Teenage Boy, but it died out soon afterward, and even when I had lots of ideas, I didn't have times and instead focused on many more projects.
However, come July 2013, I finally started to get my lazy butt in gear and get back to what I started! The new and improved movie was published to FF.net, starting off as a preface, and then eleven chapters and three and a half months later, I FINALLY finished The Kids of Free Country USA! That was when I could begin what I started yet again, despite college and all. As of November 15, 2013, the series will now be called Tales from Free Country USA, to make the series less specific about Homestar Jr.
Updates will be erratic; sometimes I'll update once or twice a month, sometimes not at all in a month. I do promise to upload often as I can, and I hope you enjoy my Homestar Runner reboot! Feel free to ask questions or if you got any ideas, go right ahead. I'm very friendly, after all.
About the Series[edit | edit source]
It takes place beginning in 2010 after the website homestarrunner.com goes on an indefinite hiatus, so the original twelve main characters get a chance to relax and focus on their lives like the Chapman Brothers Mike and Matt do. The summer of that year marked the town of Free Country USA's 150th anniversary (being founded in 1860), nearly going wrong with the evasions of Darren Crawford (now going as Deep Claw), Blade and their minions causing sabotage, pining the blame on Shelley "Specs" Millicent Hordern, who also came with Crawford and Blade, but she'd done no wrong.
An angry mob then attacked the Runner house (Marzipan's house in the original cartoon web-series) scaring off the family and several of their friends. However, a young woman named Monocle revealed the truth, having spied on the villains, as well as one of Homestar and Marzipan's daughters Starzipan, who had involvement with their affairs. With the truth now public, Specs was off the hook, Starzipan sent away, and the villains sent away. Soon enough, the celebrations went off without another hitch.
One month later, Homestar Runner Jr. and his friends have many tales to tell, showing the lives of them and the rest of the citizens of Free Country USA. (The Brothers Chaps' intention was to show more cartoons featuring the other main characters besides Strong Bad and Homestar, hence the purpose of this series.) The series begins in August 2010 (time setting, of course) just a month after the Crawford attacks.
