I thought I would pitch in and offer my services as a writer. I'm afraid that I can't program, and I'm not even a competent artist, and I understand that that's what you really need. Nonetheless, I've got a lot of experience with writing, and also with writing about X-COM. I used to write a lot of fan fiction.
A sort-of CV for your perusal:
I'm an experienced if professionally unpublished science fiction writer, am widely read, have played every X-COM game bar that awful arcade nonsense, and am an English lit graduate. I'm about to embark on an MA which involves a lot of creative writing.
If you fancy a sample, I wrote the X-COM timeline on www.x-com.co.uk (yes, I wrote that, no, I am not credited, and yes, it is heavily based on the X-COM Interceptor booklet, but nothing is reproduced verbatim, and canonical detail has been added throughout).
I suspect that a lot of my old X-COM fan fiction is still up on www.fanfiction.net. Let me just check...

Everything there by "ShootThemLater" is mine. The most recent one is _Take Me Home_, which is not too long, and thus probably a good example. _Cydonia_ and _The First Engagement_ are older pieces, but have proven quite popular. They're both quite gung-ho, but there ya go. I wrote them almost seven years ago.
Please let me know. My e-mail address is email@example.com. Should I sign up for the forums?
