/fanfic/ - Fanfiction General Gomrad Spurdo#HTmBuh 04/09/2020 (Thu) 18:21:03 No. 8063
Thread for those who like to read and write fanfiction. Share drafts, look for beta-readers, ask for writing advice, give recommendations and do all that other cool jazz. Just remember to not bully anyone else no matter how shit their taste might be.
Better have a writing general instead. I'm sure there's a lot of backed-up utopian SF writers here.
>>8063 We can share fanfiction here too right? >>8070 Making this a general Writing thread (including fanfiction) would be based
>>8116 Sure, feel free to share any fics that you like or have written yourself. >>8070 I'd prefer to have general fiction and fanfiction as separate honestly because I personally read more of the latter than former. Also, this thread is not supposed to be exclusively about writing so making it the thread's sole topic would exclude anyone who just likes to read and discuss about shit they've read and have never written anything themselves.
Lily and the Art of Being Sisyphus https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9911469/1/Lily-and-the-Art-of-Being-Sisyphus >a cosmic horror-comedy about a female version of Harry Potter and her wacky adventures with the Voldemort soul copy in her brain who she nicknames Wizard Lenin (another copy who she names "Wizard Trotsky" for his annoying behavior also appears). >>8129 We should just have a writing thread that also talks about fanfic. Amateur art made by outsiders has always been a part of proletariat culture even when it's not judged as "good taste" by the bourgeoisie.
>>8140 >Short rant ... and fucking Carnivorous Muffin pursues me even to this site. For a numerous set of reasons I detest their work. Primarily my dislike is due to it being an inane Mary Sue isekai Crack fic filled with OCs and OOC characters stretched way too fucking far and plagueing multiple fandoms and fanfiction sites due to the numerous crossovers. Inb4 "muh absurdism" Absurdism is esoteric as fuck for 1 thing, not to mention that it becomes very tiresome. The stories don't have definite beginnings or endings and at the end of the day I have this thought... why bother reading this. The main character is a fucking god among men breaking every law of magic or whatever universe they're in. It's boring because the point is lacking >Wizard Lenin and Trotsky This is an example of my claimed Mary-Sueness because it is exactly like every other garbage paper-back isekai mary sue fic that I've had the misfortune of reading; having some imaginary/special voice/friend/companion who talks and provides "le banter". Rant over
>>8129 I meant making this a writing thread because people make some fanfic-like works that are technically original works, like the write-fag on /leftyweebpol/ who I betaed for this Isekai attempt (which is now dead because fuck knows why).

>>8151 Ahem... comrade. I am that writefag. I just haven't made much progress because I'm still looking for a solution to the language barrier problem without inventing a whole new fictional language from scratch. I can't really write the MC interacting with the natives if I don't have an idea on how they will or won't be able to communicate. Also, nice to see you again Editor-san. >>8154 This is the reason I don't read Harry Potter fanfiction. Or the original Harry Potter for that matter.
>>8155 Ah hello there, Long time no see. Have you any new chapters besides your issues? >I can't really write the MC interacting with the natives if I don't have an idea on how they will or won't be able to communicate. Take a leaf out of some of the Naruto x RWBY crossovers or the Naruto x Harry Potter crossovers The writers who watched the Subs often address this issue by A) Using magic means like a translator spell or mind-transfer trick or B) Having the protagonist learn through symbol - word learning. >the original Harry Potter Eh, its a fun casual read, just nothing to take super-seriously outside a fantasy setting. Ikotika (a Russian youtuber) did a really fun review series of the movies parallel to the books where he expands on a lot of the interesting parts of Harry Potter as well as the problems and also some areas that extend into fanfiction. >the reason I don't read Harry Potter fanfiction I rarely do so Hagrid x Dobby still scars me to this day However I will sometimes come across wonderful gems among the grime. >>8154 >fanfiction writers wouldn't cut it as real writers is true! Fanfiction for the large part is people appreciating a work of media, having an idea and trying to write it out. Few people have the ability to do so, but those who do produce some splendid additions, sometimes better than the original work. Other people just use it to release ideas based on media they consume so as to pass the time and let their thoughts out in a healthy manner, like NeonZangetsu.

>>8179 >Ah hello there, Long time no see. Have you any new chapters besides your issues? Long time no see indeed. I had wondered for a while if you actually made it through the transition here, now glad to know you did. Regarding issues? Well, let's just say that I haven't been writing anything new for almost a year now or done any concept-work for that matter. I've kinda just been busy practicing my drawing skills for my current field ever since I gave up on engineering. I recently became interested in continuing on the world-building aspects of the new world so I decided to start re-working the world map for it. >A) Using magic means like a translator spell or mind-transfer trick This feels like a bit of a cop-out imo that Isekai stories which don't just skip over the whole language barrier issue altogether tend to use. I'd prefer not to have to go this route but unless I find no other way I'm kind of forced to so the plot can progress. I think that language is kind of a largely unexplored plotpoint in a lot of isekai because everything can usually just be solved by magic. Since complex magic (such as translating an entire language) is supposed to be rarer in my setting though I feel like I shouldn't just immediately jump the gun on this one and give him the ability to speak the common languages of the land from the get-go. >or B) Having the protagonist learn through symbol - word learning. Do you mean like having someone teach him? Cause that's gonna require him to find someone whose willing to do so first. Still probably the most plausible option though. I designed him a traveling partner in the form of a mutant a while back when I was still actively doing illustrations for the story. I could probably re-do him as well now that I've improved my drawing skills somewhat.
One book totally focused on weird language barriers is China Mieville's Embassytown. It's about a species that evolved language rather than developing it. Their speech is inextricable from thought, and has evolved certain natural failsafes including very strict criteria for identifying speakers (the protagonist can make the sounds but they don't even consider her sentient) and the inability to fabricate or tell lies. They have cultural workarounds for this, like staging poignant events so that they can be "referred to" as similes, but they're still basically incompatible with humans.
>>8154 >>8150 Am I glad that I'm not the only one who heavily dislikes that garbage
So what are people's opinions generally on "Gamer" fics? For those that are not familiar with the concept or need a refresher, the idea was originally lifted from a Korean Manhwa of the same name in which the MC, Han-Jee Han's life was one day flipped around and turned into a RPG with a floating UI and everything and the whole thing is about how his everyday routine changes because of it (being able to ace tests in school by dumping points into his intelligence and wisdom stats and spending his evenings clearing "dungeons" of monsters for exp, cash and drops etc.). Most fics of this variety usually modify it to a varying degree to suit the needs of plot and setting (Giving the MC options between the different races of Tamriel if they're heading to an Elder scolls setting for example or making all the starting classes be more military and gun-related instead of standard JRPG fantasy fare) I'm currently following several of these types of fics and I find them to be pretty fascinating because of the ways in which they differentiate themselves from most standard Isekai LNs (at least the ones that I've read). The MCs in these types of fics tend to end up being what I'd imagine a lot of people would actually be like if they were given this kind of power. Ie. they'd try to find exploits for easy progression and basically try to live out their power fantasies by, well, gaming the system, and/or turn into complete sociopaths because of all the passive effects like "Gamer's mind", which suppresses all strong emotions like fear to allow the user to keep a cool head in stressful situations. Recommendations for fics in this (sub?)genre: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13038605/1/Force-Without-Balance (MC is transferred into the body of his Skyrim character before then being further transported to Highschool DxD, hilarity ensues) https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13391375/1/A-Gamers-New-Game-Plus (MC gets dropped into a weird crossover version of Remnant from RWBY after his soul and the System got shattered into a dozen pieces by DC's Spectre when he decided to dick around in that universe during the events of the last fic (which is not necessary to read since it isn't referenced all that often in this one, hilarity ensues.) https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13420228/1/A-Gamers-Guide-to-Conquest (MC is given his own custom-built multiverse as an apology for accidentally being caught in the crossfire of a family feud between the former fic's protagonist (who at the time had already basically transcended into godhood or at least something close to it.) and his daughter, hilarity ensues yet again.) The last two especially are good imo because of the overarching plot that goes on between them. The author's previous stories in the same vein also helped (and still do) inspire a lot of new authors(and some old ones like myself) to write their own attempts, for some this is actually their author's first time even writing fanfiction in general. >inb4 self-insert Yeah a lot of it is self-insert and OC-insert, it might not be everyone's cup of tea, but there are also various examples of the "gamer" system being gifted to established canon characters of their respective franchises to see how it might change the plot. I haven't read any of those latter ones personally so I can't attest to their quality.
>>8210 >"Gamer" fics? Depends on what kind. The Gamer fics that have You/Main Character play a life until you "die" and then play again have always been garbage in my experienced opinion due to how lightly it treats death. It's why Log Horizon is boring as fuck. Gaming fics that have mechanics like SAO (where you can access a menu screen but death is permanent and real) can work but take a lot of skilled writing to pull off, which is almost never, especially considering that SAO's author fails to write out the concept properly. >MC is transferred into the body of his Skyrim character before then being further transported to Highschool DxD, hilarity ensues Screams edgy from the first paragraphs and only gets worse. Its "le overpowered discount SI Original Character who enters a media and gets it all. What's the point of liking an anime (for example) if you don't care about or dislike the main character. >MC is given his own custom-built multiverse as an apology FFS that's just In Another World With My Smartphone >Crossover with RWBY and DC I'm noping out on that, DC is such a mess that I can't stand most of those fanfics. TL;DR: Self-Incert and OC-centric fics are usually hard to pull off. Gamer fics are even harder. The tendency for Gamer fics to combine with OC/SI means that out of the thousands of fanfics out there, only a few are worth a damn outside of toilet reading.

I'm genuinely surprised Mairimashita! Iruma-kun and Murenase! Shiiton Gakuen lack their own fanfiction.net pages. AO3 has them but lack in written works... which is a shame since they're both fun, silly series.
>>8154 >>8208 >>8150 >>8140 Reposting an amalgamation about this ms Lily's (femHarry) characterization - She's basically kinda messed up as a result of not being able to die and therefore not really getting why death is bad. Also comes off as a brat. A character with zero consideration for anyone else is unrelatable and irritating. The other characters tend to be extensions of the setting and therefore are not people in the first place, i.e. the Dursleys. While the given example is not wholly unlike the Canon, it is moderated because the Dursleys are less than 5% of the Canon books. All this mess is often called Main Character Syndrome. It's a bit of a solipsist idea that you exist and nobody else does. It is so prevalent in many different media (such as Isekai anime) that it has flanderized beyond tolerable measure. Moreover this is less likely intentional and more an unironic belief of the author given their blog posts about "life".

Am I the only one sick of gay shipping? I swear it plagues every fandom to the point where anything remotely gay in any fanfic makes me stop reading. I wouldn't mind if it weren't so poorly done, over and over and over again... an interesting story being axed by sudden slash because the author got horny while writing. It's worst when they take something like close friendship between two friends and make it into disturbing cocklust, seriously, go beat off and then comeback to the keyboard, we don't need to read discount Twilight-tier gay fantasies.
>>8795 >Am I the only one No, Anon, you're not the only one. But for real, that's why I abandoned my fan circle last time. They got so bad that they wouldn't even accept straight ("hetshit") or yuri ships. What's so damn wrong about wanting male friends to stay friends? I actually think it's cuter to explore such close friendships than butchering those characters for the sake of gay buttsex. The worst is when they force their shit yaoi "dynamics" (stereotypes) onto them, it's boring, cliche and annoying. Wouldn't be so bad if fujoshits didn't act like their gay headcanons are canon all the time and if you don't agree they'll spam you with that garbage (at least in my experience). It's like a cult.
>>8795 As a gay dude: On one hand it is annoying as it seems to be pushed mainly by women who fetishize gays in the same way a lot of straight dudes fetishize lesbians. As you mentioned they're often not realistic and poorly written, they also seem to promote the idea that two dudes can't be close without sexual tension (I guess you could call this toxic masculinity). On the other hand I get a bit of schadenfreude watching straight dudes complain about shit that gays have to put up with all the time, 99% of romance in fiction is heterosexual, or on the internet 12 year old moe-loli garbage.
Can steampunk count as a form of fanfiction? I read a bit of it but I never encountered Marxist steampunk, or even just Marx in those books. Does this thing even exist? What do you think of this idea?
(78.02 KB 500x651 Cyberpunk.jpg)
>>8813 Does it use story elements such as specific settings or characters already established by someone else in a separate work of media such as a video game, a book or a movie? >Yes Its fanfiction. >No Its just regular fiction Steampunk like every kind of "punk" is a subgenre of retrofuturism which can be condensed and simplified into the question of "what did people of this particular time period think the future would be like?" For steampunk its the age of steam engines, dieselpunk is the late 19th and early 20th century when fossil-fuel-based combustion engines were first starting to be popular and even cyberpunk when it first popped up was the 70s and 80s equivalent of the former two (it has kind of gradually turned into its own thing over the years and these days its considered a sub-genre of scifi more than retrofuturism).
>>8817 Actually let me rephrase that last sentence. Its considered more a of sub-genre of dystopian fiction and sci-fi in general rather than retro-futurism specifically even though a lot of modern cyberpunk works still incorporate those old aesthetics of the past decades.
>>8795 >>8806 >>8812 the first I had any understanding of homosexual relations was through fujoshit because I was into fandom and fanfic for so much of my adolescence. luckily I met and dated actual men who behave like human beings and not YA protagonists, so I've been thoroughly disabused. another factor in that was being friends with a fujoshi in high school who progressively descended into more and more obnoxious behavior, and when I came out as bi, she became ten times more obnoxious about shipping me with other guys. I think what disgusts me the most about fujoshit is that whole notion of "all men are secretly homos, all the fujoshi needs to do is aggressively ship and act like a stalker until they 'admit' their feelings" which ends up seeming like sexual harassment by proxy or something.
>>8812 >99% of romance in fiction is heterosexual Have you been on AO3? Mor than 50% of Any fiction there, fanfiction or original fiction is tagged with M/M and even more gets missed with miscellaneous Yaoi and slash If you mean over-all fiction... that's not really true either, most fiction has NO romance at all, because its irrelevant to the story and that's what pisses me off the most when its done.... 90% of the time its hamfisted as fuck. Ironically when there is a genuinely decent M/M ship to be found its done like garbage. Probably the worst is Haku x Naruto... That shit could be done well, but every fic that has a yaoi pairing of the two (and not rule 63) ends up having a really shitting Master-Servant relation or other obnoxious shite. TL;DR: Its not the gayness that's the issue, its how obnoxious it - and the Fujos who make it - are.
Remember when the worst media was teen angst shit like Hunger Games and Twilight instead of Star Wars Sequels and Captain Marvel? I 'member.... Honestly I wish we could go back to the late 2000s. When 90s culture was still ebbing and things were simpler than they are in the current mess.
>>8837 People say nostalgia is rose-tinted, but TBH I think its justified.
>>8837 shut up fag.
>>9814 Lel, nice try
I find RWBY to be largely boring despite its interesting ideas. Ironically like Fairy Tail however, its rather ripe for fanfiction crossovers.

If anything, nowadays it has gotten a little better, YA books are actually readable, Disney and Cartoon Network are doing good cartoons again and thanks to the Internet you aren't tied up to watching whatever is on TV. I still can't fathom how people could stand those awful 00's live-action Disney Channel """"comedy"""" shows and cheap-ass north-american cartoons.

>>10212 >Kagome-Ataru-female-Ranma Kek what a crossover >Teen media was always cringe Eh, not really. The edgy cringe and sappy-shit only began to be a proper genre for teens in the late 70s/80s and frankly even until the 90s, with all the angst and other shit, it never reached the levels we got with Twilight or Divergent or other shite. >cheap-ass north-american cartoons Such as? Do you mean along the lines of Ben 10 or something more like Rocky and Bullwinkle? > 00's live-action Disney Channel """"comedy"""" shows Because it was 'new' and was a teen version of "Friends". >YA books are actually readable today? Name one from the past 2-3 years that isn't mediocre at best. >Disney and Cartoon Network are doing good cartoons again Bitch where? They haven't stopped shitting the bed since the mid 2010s after shows like Clone Wars, Transformers Prime and Avatar the Last Airbender were supplanted by crap like Steven Boogerverse, Loser of Korra and Transformers RiD. >thanks to the Internet you aren't tied up to watching whatever is on TV. Which is why people did torrenting or watched Toonami. >Anime airing Good for you I guess but that's not a sign of objectivity. Having live with both anime and Western cartoons through the 90s/early 2000s I'm gonna have to say that between something like Pokemon or Yu Gi Yo or Beyblade and Ben 10, Kim Possible and Gargoyles... I'mma go with the latter.

Now that I think of it, I think most of the cartoons I remember were canadian, from the same company that made Totally Spies (that one was pretty good tho). >Because it was 'new' and was a teen version of "Friends" I suppose you're right >Bitch where? Compared to the wasteland of the 00s, based on what I see my cousins watch I think some of the cartoons they make are pretty good. Star and the Forces of Evil, Adventure Time, that one about the three cute bears. I believe that's more of a 10s thingy, I don't know about "current" current cartoons because usually that type of media arrives to my country a few years after it becomes successful in the US. >something like Pokemon or Yu Gi Yo That's because Americans got into anime very late and with bottom of the barrel tier shows. TV here in Catalonia in the 00s had tons of good quality anime, from "for all ages" shows Urusei Yatsura, Kimagure Orange Road or Slam Dunk to more experimental things like Revolutionary Girl Utena, Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex or Serial Experiments Lain, and most of them were in public TV. One of the TV channels even had hentai at night for a few years.

>>10279 Ah, ok understood
I always felt weird about writing fanfiction using established characters and always used OCs. I guess that's me being more interested in writing within the setting than exploring characters differently.
>>10297 I always cringe at OC fanfiction because its rrely well done and because part of a fiction deserving of fanfiction is the presence of charismatic characters you enjoy. OC fanfiction can be good but that is very rarely pulled off, usually when interaction with the main characters of a fandom are not featured at all.
Anyone have good naruto crossover fic recommendations?

>>10297 For me writing about existing characters within a setting was always (and still is) hard because I kept asking myself the question "Am I doing this character justice with how I'm representing them within my story?" That nagging question is still a problem for my attempts at writing my current Black Lagoon fic. Revy for example is such a complex character that I don't know if I'd ever be able to write any interaction where she's involved properly beyond acknowledging some key features of hers like >Plentiful use of swearing >Casual racism >Sociopathic tendencies >Deep-seated nihilism >General hotheadedness and impulsiveness >Avoidance of attachment and intimacy >Preference of violence over diplomacy >Excellent marksmanship
>>10969 In my case its the opposite, the issue isn't writing them accurately, the original work has done that for me and its fairly easy to write out their defining characteristics to prevent OOCness, the issue is usually going through the steps needed to make sure their background and surroundings aren't an utter void
Anyone have short reflective fics? >>10790 seconding
Reposting from this profile https://www.fanfiction.net/u/7383559/Silent-Songbird The Baker A Short Story by Silent Songbird Once upon a time, a young lady was baking in her kitchen. She loves baking. One day, she realizes that maybe she should share her love of baking. She bakes a nice apple pie and then puts in front of her house, hanging the sign "free pie". People come around, they taste the pie and they LOVE it! She feels flattered and happy that people love her baking, and she feels good that she fed some people. So, the next day, she bakes some more. More people come for the free pie, and they love it even better. This goes on, she bakes, they come, they eat, she feels good and they feel good. Then one day, she decides to mix it up. She bakes cupcakes and muffins instead of pie. The people... They lose their shit. "Oh my God! Why the hell did you make cupcakes?" "You had something good here and you ruined it!" "You can't bake for shit! This is shit! Kill yourself for making this." Baffled by the vehemence of the people, she goes back to making her free pie and giving it out once more. Sent thinks, maybe it was a mistake to make cupcakes. That won't happen again. Except, it does. The people lose their shit again. This time, she didn't even have to change her bakery. "Ugh, there's too much sugar in this." "Damn it, there's not enough sugar in this!" "The pie crust is missing! I thought you knew how to bake?" What had started as a hobby and gave the young lady pleasure, had instead grown into something else. A chore. A task. And slowly, little by little, the lady began to hate what she baked. She began to hate the task of baking. And just like that, one day, there was no pie outside her house. And the people had the gall, to ask her why. The End. If you are among the percentage of people on this site who are not arrogant enough to forget that fan fiction is written freely, and authors expect no reward for their hard work except for the satisfaction of people appreciating their work and stories, then feel free to copy my little story to your profile.
I wish fanfiction.net had a fucking blacklist function
>>11049 An ability to edit/remove your own old reviews would be a good idea too.
>>11528 >>11049 Fanfic mods are too busy scratching their ball to look at such criticisms
>>8063 What is the most disturbing fanfic you have read /hobby/?
>>11901 Reposting: The Worst fic I ever read was a Naruto one where after chapters of decent writing a completely unwarned rape lemon with gore and scat was written featuring Iruka and Kakashi raping Haku and Naruto. It was horrendous in that it was written with such detail and care, I stppped reading as soon as my brain caught up to the sheer shock. It was worse than that 1 fic where the Giant Squid makes out with Hogwarts (yes that is a real fic).

This is just a bit funny so I thought I'd share. There is a fanfic writer called Fairy Tail Dragon Slayer who is without doubt the biggest Naruto wanker in the world, he puts Naruto at universal+ level right now nd for some reason does a lot of DxD crossovers while inserting Naruto in the most obnoxious way possible. A few early fics of his were passable, back when he hadn't lost his marbles, but current stuff is just nasueating. Now recently in Shin DxD Volume 4 Great Red was 'easily' killed And of course said fanfic writer took great amounts of pride in using this as a reason to say that Naruto's higher tiers are way stronger than Great Red. (spoilers) https://twitter.com/FairyTailDragon/status/1285122548917821442 https://www.fanfiction.net/u/3997415/fairy-tail-dragon-slayer The sheer absurdity of the statement was so much so, that I decided that, "hey, whatever let me reply to this fucker for kicks"... his response was that I'm a fool and know nothing about Naruto... which is false given that I am a Naruto fan and I know the power-scaling of the series well. I responded that I was sad that he thought so, but disagreements are irrelevant for fictional characters anyway and bid him a good day. The response was fairly disproportionate, he sent NINE separate messages in less than 2 hours replying to my post and then blocked me, which made the entire conversation get hidden so that I couldn't even read his responses. Given that I was also quite polite with him and simply wished a good day despite disagreeing, his actions are very petulant. Now some of FTDS' early calcs of Naruto feats were good and accurate and are consistent with feats and databooks (pics related for an example), but now he's using verbal hyperbole to say that 'Momoshiki' sucked the energy from several universes and that combined power was taken down by Naruto in Boruto... which now makes Naruto multi-versal level... like fuck me that is a level beyond normal wanking. Even MudaMudaMuda on comicvine never wanked that hard. Now for perspective, Great Red is a character who represents a metaphysical concept - dreams and illusions - and is equal in power to the dragon of infinity Ophis, both are above all gods in the series including the omnipresent and deceased biblical god. So tell me, how is Naruto, a human with demi-god abilities supposed to fight that? So that's the gist of it. Frankly as a casual Naruto-fan, this is the kind of shit that created the whole 'Narutard' meme, and makes it impossible to talk about the show without some brainlet repeating that dead strawman to "btfo de naruto fans". Honestly take this wierdo and use him as an example of what NOT to do as a fan and a fanfic writer.
>>12466 Kek this nibba has the audacity to continue posting his rant in a review when he realized that blocking me prevents me from seeing his shitpost rants. Its several thousand words long FFS and is full of such nonsequiturs and other shit that I can't help but laugh. Fucking deleting his ass, its too much idiocy.

Fanworks are very creative sometimes. An interesting (abandoned) fic is Mobzilla, which I was reminded of by Pic 1. https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10467907/1/Mobzilla-Kaiju-and-Kingpins https://www.deviantart.com/nazrigar/art/Mobzilla-398083900

Read a surprising good fanfic where Kakashi ends up in Middle Earth after fucking around with Kamui and getting his chakra coils and eye totally fucked. Really well written IMO.
I'm a die-hard Star Wars fan but I was very dissapointed with how Disney is handling the franchise. Since I don't have anything to do because of corona I've been thinking for a while of writing my own AU sequel trilogy, just to see if I can do a better job than Lucasfilm. Should I try it or it will be cringe? And if I do write it, I should do it in my mother tongue or in English?
>>13373 >Should I try it or it will be cringe? Of course you should try writing it, you only get better at writing by doing. I certainly know what material I wrote early on was absolute cringe too (it probably still is, but I try to think about it less and less). That's no reason to stop writing altogether, rather take it as a reason to continue improving your craft until it reaches to a point that its no longer cringe to read instead. Remember that you yourself are your own biggest critic in most cases and even if you might spot every little mistake you make grammar or lorewise, your average reader is not a professional critic and will usually tend enjoy a story regardless of the errors if its otherwise a decent read. >And if I do write it, I should do it in my mother tongue or in English? Please write it in English so I can read it. I'm really interested in seeing what you can come up with.
>>13373 Definitely do, it just for the sake of improving your writing if nothing else. English, Spanish or Russian is the most widely read fanfic languages. I would suggest sticking to English and if necessary getting a beta writer to adjust your grammar and spelling
>>13373 You should definitely try it and not just because there is no way you could worse than JJ fucking Abrams.

thinking back wistfully on the lion king fanfic I never finished after 100k words or something. always thought I'd go on to write an actual novel at some point, but all I've done since is be a wagie and smoke weed didn't need this feel tbh >>13373 You might as well. But honestly, the old EU was already full of marvelous follow ups on the OT, like as not you'll be retreading something someone else already did. Of course if that doesn't bother you, pic related. What's your pitch?
>>13382 > the lion king fanfic I never finished Link nigga? >>13381 Or Rianna Johnson
>>13400 Damn nigga this isn't half bad. The English is well written and the pacing seems to be fine and the story in the first few chapters I've read seems good enough. Seeing the T-rating you clearly didn't put in any lemons so looks fine to me.
>>13382 >the old EU was already full of marvelous follow ups on the OT I'm aware, I've got a ton of old Bantam era books plus the entire NJO series. >What's your pitch? Well, I haven't the whole thing plotted yet, but my basic idea is to start from the situation Disney started from (clean slate, only the movies and TCW are canon) and try to base the characters a bit on George Lucas's original plot. The plot would be about Kira, a female padawan investigating a series of strange murderers along his master, Ben Solo. Eventually, they would discover a sect of darksiders formed by the old red guards, who are trying to ressurrect Palpatine and rebuild the Sith order. During the fight with the sect, Ben would be defeated and "killed", leading Kira into a revenge-fueled spree around the galaxy to destroy the remnants of the Sith. But Ben is not really dead, he faked it because he has his own agenda. Because of shit that happened in his youth, he has lost faith on the Force, the Jedi and the Republic. Maybe throw a bit of Kreia-posting in the mix for good measure. He has been secretly building up a network of like-minded jedi and adopts the persona of Kylo Ren, starting a travel around the galaxy to learn about the origins of the Jedi, the Sith and the Force, with the goal of ending once and for all the struggle between the light and the dark. This will split the jedi order in two, and start a jedi civil war. Kira then decides to find Luke, who abandoned known space decades ago to concentrate on studying the will of the force, because he's the only one respected enough by everyone to mediate and put an end to the conflict. Luke will help Kira to return from her brush with the dark side and make her a better jedi, and together they reveal that Kylo Ren is actually Ben Solo. In a final gambit to defeat both the Jedi and the Sith, Ben Solo uses his status as Darth Vader's heir to unify all the former imperial warlords and loyalists, claims the imperial throne and launches an attack against the New Republic and the Jedi order. Then there's a big battle, and presumely the good guys win, I guess.
>>13401 thanks bro, appreciate it. maybe I'll pick it up again idk >>13402 it's already better than all of neo-star wars and it's only just a concept. tho isn't >Ben Solo uses his status as Darth Vader's heir to unify all the former imperial warlords and loyalists undercut by Vader's turn at the end of RotJ? plus I always figured the imperial navy & administration all kinda really disliked Vader. fear him without feeling much loyalty
>>13420 >by Vader's turn at the end of RotJ? Well, that depends. Only Sheev, Vader and Luke were there. Based on the ending of RotJ we don't really know if Vader's turn became common knowledge around the galaxy or if the identity of Luke's parents are known outside of his circle of friends. In the old EU if I remember correctly people knew all of it, but in the Disney canon Darth Vader true identity was a secret until a while before TFA. So it depends on how it is written. >I always figured the imperial navy & administration all kinda really disliked Vader Yeah, but given how atomized the imperials are after RotJ, a strong figure with some legitimacy over the throne could become a powerful unifying force for a resurgent Empire. Thrawn was disliked too, before he started winning battles against the New Republic. And so was Daala, to a lesser extent.

Does anyone have an AU fic where Misato and Shinji switch positions
>>13373 I think that you could actually try what was mentioned in >>12509 where Rey and Kylo (or if you REALLY hate the sequels Luke and his friends) create a third path, discarding the relics of the fascist Empire and succ-dem Republic in lieu of a third path - socialism (though I suggest that you name it something else because A - world-building & B - To keep idiots out of the reviews)
>>8063 I don't know if this is just me, but for some strange reason when PMing other fanfic authors they tend to have very negative responses despite messages being polite and inoffensive. Does anyone else experience this or what?
>>13810 only ever had positive interactions tbh
