I created this topic so that if you have your own Alien story or you wanted to review the other stories you can do so here.
Can't wait to hear from you ;)
Obsession is power, not a curse.

LOL gives me a excuse to start mine more than broad strokes..
I had ideas and got the synopsis and plots down for 3 movies.
1) Alien Resurrection Sequel... well set near the end of that movie, where a DNA sample of Ripley 8 and Failed Ripley clone 7 Queen was taken to another Research Facility.
2) A Alien sequel/prequel well Parallel story of a mining colony, where some more workers come down to expand on work and when excavating a area near a large volcano they uncover a Cave System..... spore/eggs .. dead Engineers, and then a buried Juggernaught/Derelict and one Live Engineer....
it was a tease movie to maybe tease... hey could this had been where the Xeno came from? as far as Original Organism they they re-engineered....
3) a Unrelated Weyland Universe of a lonely Male, who purchases a Weyland Companion Android because of his poor success with weapon..... but then he latter finds a real Girlfriend and we see the Weyland Android start to get jelious... then go and mis-behave (go outs clubbing for sex to try and make her owner jelious) she end up getting totally emotional and off the rails.. and offended when she meets guy for sex.. changes her mind he calls her slut and tries rape her... she fucking rips his head off...
Then she goes after her owners girlfriend and in the end... he would end up sacrificing himself to save his girlfriend, destroying the robot.... or i was thinking disabled it... but then the robot survives but cant go on without him and destroys herself..
So a kind of Psychological Thriller/Horror
To highlight that YES.... Earlier Weyland Androids could go very very wrong....
Lets Face Facts too... if in 100 years we can create David 8's and say Vickers 8 Synthetics.... the companionship market would be the Main source of revenue above use in Industry and Military...

I'm devising and writing 2 stories:
1)My verison of Prometheus,added some elements from Jon Spaihts' script and my own ideas.
2)Second story that is focusing more on engineers and their history.The working title is "Deus ex machina".
One of these might see the light of day (or both).

Indeed Dark Nebula..
I began work on a re-write of Lindeloffs/Prometheus... changing some of the crappy dialog, adding things to make more sense to silly scenes... being less ambiguous.
adding few things from Spaights draft and then my own too.
May have a go and re-doing Spaights draft too as it needs work, lot of silly stuff in that one too... everyone bashes Lindeloff, but fail to see flaws in Spaights draft maybe because its got Aliens.
I wonder if AC is a bit of a cop out like 4chan leak but please more than Prometheus because its got Aliens...
Basically in Spaights Draft... Watts (Shaw) comes under more stress and pain that Shaw, yet she can run around and dodge Acid Blood and take out 3 Xenomorphs... Which i found rather silly.

This thread is a great idea.
It's making me want to move forward on an idea I had when I recently watched a youtube video of Alex Jones allegedly "exposing" the secrets of Alien Covenant.
I will not promote or discredit Alex Jones or his work here. I will clarify about myself however, that I am extremely familiar with him but I can't identify as a follower.
That being said, his video brought back a lot of ideas from my understanding of Illuminati theories and I realized it may be fun to write a short story involving a certain continuum of organizations that has been in communication with the engineers as far back as 1100 AD.
The story would take place at various periods/locations over the course of 1000 years and would remain faithful (as much as possible without knowing what's coming) to the official cannon.

When I was in high school before resurrection came out I had a plot for a sequel:
1. The large passenger ship and crew brings on board an alien and while in cryosleep a number of the crew become infected resulting in a small hive or outbreak on board.
2. Just as a number of the ships systems begin to fail. A small number of Passsengers waken to a ship without gravity and malfunctioning systems and have to organize to survive an alien outbreak.
3. The premise really would be Apollo 13 meets aliens. Less cheese and comical than whedon's Alien had offered.

Thanks for bumping this thread.
All, I apologize if this is a repeat, but I tried this on my own thread and it seems more appropriate here. I think we should all go for it and not wait to polish ideas too much because then they will never be posted. With that said, here is my start for good or ill:
I have seen a lot of talk about people writing scripts but no examples. I have no idea how to do one but here is my first attempt and I completely expect ridicule.
However, if anyone finds any value and wants to run with it, by all means, do! Here is the background:
It is me interviewing people about AC- particularly about the assumption that Shaw is the victim of devious deeds. Again, please know I have never attempted this and I kept it clean as possible. (takes breath) here goes:
ALIEN SOUTHERN STYLE-
Hello, I am DK, proud member of what I call the Scified Collective. New footage of Alien Covenant has been released and I spoke with some people afterwards about it. Here were there comments:
DK- So what do you think of how Shaw is portrayed in this movie?
Anonymous 1- Well, DK, I think it is just wrong to see a youngish woman put through a situation like this just to punish her for saying that she deserves to know why some lily white manly looking man got woken up sleeping through the crack of noon. Maybe he would have answered her question if that other old fart didn’t interrupt her or if she woke him up to the smell of bacon cooking on an iron frying pan….He didn’t seem to have any laundry she could have washed for him.
Anonymous 2- Well, DK my friend and brother, she gave birth to a new generation. It looked pretty painful, but she sacrificed that pain for her beliefs. Conveniently, it is easier for me to empathize being male and all not having ever to had go through that myself, but you get my drift, right DK?
Anonymous 3- Why did Ripples flame all dem dere eggs? They didn’t do nothin’ wrong! They was just mindin’ their own bisness and got burned! They all deserved a meaningful life like anyone else!
DK: Okay, how do we raise these new human killing parasites who you say deserve to be born?
Anonymous 3- I just mind my bisness. That’s about personally responsibility and guvment!
DK: Umm…OK, but those things don’t seem to know or care about those concepts.
Anonymous 3- (grabs a broom): Get them li’l bass t$rds away from me ya hear? Call the Army! (Shuts and locks door- all 5 locks).
Anonymous 4- Those critters creep me out, DK! I heard scrithin’s comin’ from the garage the other night and found a shredded bag of cat food the ne next morning! I saw one in my back yard just this mornin’ and shot with my 12 gauge when it gave me the stink eye! It started steamin’ and bubblin’ like porin’ lighter fluid on an open fire (when I thought it was a fire extinguisher)! It burnt a hole and ended up in my ceptic tank- sendin’ all kinds of the nasty into the air! I’ waiting for a HAZMAT team right now and…..did you see dat? Dare it is! Here it come! I gotta reload I’m out os sh(gags as the facehugger jumps him).
DK- Well, we can see that these creatures are certainly causing troubles in our inner cities and we await more guidance. However, our wild cat problem has diminished and for that, we are thankful. Back to you, Chris!
Good evening, this is DK reporting from the deep south at an undisclosed location. I am here in the woods with Festus who is dealing with the face huggers in the tradition of the back woods survivalist.
Festus, How are you? How are you managing with the face hugger problem out here?
Well DK, these critters they call face huggers been around a few months now and those city folk can’t handle NUTTIN! Damn social sevice thumb suckin’ cry babies! Now, you gots to be practical livin’ out here in the back 40. Do we like these face huggers? HELL NO! Do we deal with them? You know it brutha!
Ya see, We catch ‘em- not sayin’ how- what matters is they get caught! Now- you get yoself a nice a big ol’ pot of boilin’ water with some Cajun spices, onions, corn on the cob and some lye to counteract that acid blood, and you got yo self some of the best creole this side of the Mississip, yessir!

OK. Here is one for the Isolation fans and those whom insist on zero humor:
Amanda Ripley here. I need to access the computer to gain an access code. The computer is 20 feet away and the save point is 30 feet away. I have been crouching my way through hoping to be silent.
I cannot remember the last time I ate or drank, but know that I am tired, hungry, emotionally and physically exhausted. There is a synthetic impeding my path to the computer and I could make quick work of it with my shotgun. Doing so would likely alert the Alien and add complication to my current complicated situation.
I have been sitting under this table for what feels like an eternity and I must act. Saving my progress trumps computer access. The synthetic walks away-my opportunity. As I make my move, I hear my motion scanner sound off that something is near. I mush on toward the all-important save point. It is so close!
My quick moves have alerted the synthetic and I hear fast footsteps in the ducts above. Too late to hide. The save point is all important. As I reach it, I hear the Alien exit the ducts and also hear the synthetic inform me that I appear hysterical and should calm down. Footsteps from the Alien can be heard approaching from the hall. I insert my card into the save point. It beeps……the synthetic drones on telling me I am not authorized to be in this area…….the footsteps get faster and louder……..I am utterly defenseless………unless that save card registers in time. Regardless, I am currently scared sh1tless.

Alright guys this is my own shot at Alien fiction.Much like dk i was a little disappointed in the lack of results in the Alien story thread.By doing this i hope it inspires some of you guys to try as well.After all what have you got to loose?Note this is a work in progress,i will update it as often as i can and any feedback will also be appreciated.So here goes.This is set any where from five to ten years after the events of Aliens and Alien 3.The incident on LV-426 has been covered up,and the incident on Fiorina-161 has been swept under the rug.On a planet designated DH-168,a team have settled on the planet and are in the early stages of prepping the planet to be terraformed.I should say i don't know much about terraforming,or what kind professional fields it requires so for know i won't probably go to much into there specific professions.More on this later.
Posted Jan-21-2017 9:44 PM
I'll do my best.Alright Here's a sample .Reynolds"Captain I've found something I think you should see." Collins"What is it Karen." Reynolds"Well it looks like an egg of somekind.Its better if you just see it."The captain inspects the egg from a safe distance clearly wary of the lifeform inside.Collins"Mitchell have you seen anything like it?" Derek Mitchell,a former marine who has been to more world's than he cares to remember,has been silently observing from of to the side."No and I've seen enough lets leave it the f@&k alone!" Karen Reynolds"Mitchell,it's just an egg." Mitchell"It's a big f@&king egg,and i personally don't want to stick around and find whatever layed it!" Reynolds"Such a big baby,and i don't think there's much chance of that.I think they've been here a long time.Captain i would like to take one back and run some tests."Mitchell"Are you f@&king crazy!"Reynolds"No I'm not this is a pretty significant mind.Captain?" Captain Collins"Granted.I'll inform Sonya to prep it for decontamination." Mitchell"Captain you can't be serious.You really want bring this back?" Collins"I am serious.Sonya do you copy?" Sonya,an android"I hear you Captain." Collins"Stand by with the decontam unit,we've found something."

The topic of this story was both created and inspired by ninXeno426
Background: A female appearing synthetic observes a death and is told from the synthetic’s POV.
I tried to communicate to Steve that I was not interested in his emotional and sexual advances. I suppose I could not entirely blame him since he was unaware that I am not human. Oddly, Mr. Weyland designed my physique to match my intelligence.
Steve could not take my polite hints of rejection but persisted with his advances. Our mission was to bring back a live specimen for the company. With a dwindling crew during our ordeal, I found Steve to be the perfect one to serve that purpose. Steve had an unusual view of sexuality. For him, it was more about the buildup than the act itself.
I placed a face hugger in a container in my bedroom (I didn't need a bedroom, but needed to maintain a living space like the humans as not to cause suspicion). I invited Steve to my quarters and told him the container contained a rare aphrodisiac that would change his life forever. I was actually telling the truth (mostly).
He obliged and the face hugger wasted no time. I had never seen a spectacle like this before. The raw meeting of predator and prey fascinated me and I wished to study that aspect more. I was simply unaware at that point of how a human could roll, kick and scratch while a face hugger calmly and effortlessly embraced its prey. But for now, my directive was to deliver a specimen back to the company.
As Steve's struggle waned, I knelt beside him and whispered into his ear "Thank you for helping me help you help me."
