  1. I've thought of a few more ideas. BOOKMARKING - This will allow you to mark responses you want to view later for private viewing (like I mark an RP response to come back to later so it is easier to find) CHARACTER STUDY - Single dedicated threads to a specific character from any fandom (just specify in title for example KAI [Beyblade] - Discuss all aspects of a character with other fans. Character strengths, weaknesses, personality, how to fit into your specific story etc Thoughts? @Moderator @Community Leader @ Gold Member @Bronze Member @Silver Member

  2. From my Beyblade story "A Hero's Last Cry". Some Tyson/Hilary stuff naturally . “I told you before, Tyson. I will always be here for you until you tell me to go.” Her fingers entwined with his own, and he glanced down, an eyebrow raised. His heart rate quickened, and he felt a surge of warmth rushing to his cheeks. And something else, but he couldn’t describe it accurately. It wasn’t the same course of excitement he received when winning a match. But it was a pleasant feeling that spread throughout his entire being and it made him feel warm. “I would only tell you to leave

  4. I've been thinking of doing a mini event every month where the goal is to drop no more than 10 reviews over a selected weekend. 5 reviews for fellow members and 5 reviews for people outside the forum (for recruitment hopefully). I think I'd host the event on the last weekend of each month - that'll give everyone heaps of time to nominate a story they would like a review for. I know it'll be tough for reading something that is outside your fandom, but there are things you can focus on like grammar if you're unfamiliar. I think it's a way of reading outside your comfort zone (myself i

  5. Unfortunately, the theme that won the vote last year has still not been updated and the creator has disappeared. On the plus side the spoiler tag is now working properly and is much easier than before. All you need to do is highlight what you want spoilered in your post and click on the eye icon as shown below. Before, you had to type in some HTML code but you don't have to do that anymore with the new update. @Board Moderator @Discord Moderator @Community Leader @Platinum Member @Gold Member @Silver Member @Bronze Member

  6. As the horrifying scene played out before Dante, and the paralyzing effect it had on him went away, he ran towards the now lifeless body of Hanako. "No, no, no, no. Hanako, stay with me." Dante said, resting her remains on the floor and lifting Hanako's head with his free arm. "Hanako!" he cried, but it was to no avail. "Hanako is dead." he thought several moments later. As he stood up, Dante cleaned the tears of his face with his sleeve. Looking at his hands, they were stained with red and black fluids, he also noticed he was still shaking. Was it fear? It might as well be. His nigh

    18th of September, 2020 Today I decided it was time to update the theme again because after awhile, looking at mostly all brown gets a bit dull. This theme is pretty similar to earlier version with some minor alterations. You can now see GUIDES in the navigation bar and this contains links to RULES - TUTORIALS - NEWS. STREAMS and VIDEOS are now next to each other but these will eventually be merged under one in the next major board upgrade. The UPDATE MOOD button is now an icon with a smiley face. You can see this to the right of my username. I do have the board ready

Please provide a short bio (a sentence) about them, why other people should listen to them, and three recommended tracks. I figure this is better than having just single individual threads and such. Just hyperlink them - don't post the video because that will slow loading times a lot if there's three videos a post. @Board Moderator @Discord Moderator @Gold Member @Silver Member @Platinum Member @Bronze Member @Community Leader - I would like to recommend S

It simply wouldn't do to completely close the only way out in case his fellow inmate wasn't as open-minded as he thought. "Don't worry, I come in peace." Dylan assured, slowly lowering his hands in front of Florence. "I just wanted to, you know, the usual stuff when two individuals in the same boat do." the con man offered.

  16. So Epica's OMEGA is out now and here are my thoughts! - I actually listened to the leak two weeks ago so I've got a better idea of what I want to write. I think Omega is a very standard and safe Epica album and it checks all the boxes of symphonic metal. Epica are probably at the top of the genre now, but I don't feel they do anything new on each album. They had so much success with TQE, and I feel they've been stuck in that sound for awhile. So, a bit of background first on my Epica history - I became a fan of the band back in 2007 when TDC came out. DYU is my all-time favourite Epi

Then, although it would be painful, he squeezed the sides of Garry's leg, forcing as much puss and fluid out as possible. It had the same sickening black colouration. However, the lump wouldn't be forced out. Cursing under his breathe Ivan stopped squeezing and began wrapping up the crac

  22. @AquilaTempestas I really hate Smart Ash stories. Ash has plenty of character canonically, so you would expect people to use that. But instead they warp and twist him into a different character like some type of wish fulfillment. The end result is a character that looks like Ash has his name, but it’s not Ash in any way. If you are going to change a canon character so much, just make an OC. Someone that really enjoys Ash’s character the way it is, it’s frustrating when people just bastardize it. Furthermore, I don’t really think Ash is dumb. A bit lazy, impulsive, and possibly forgetful (de

    Project name: The Twins (because I have nothing better and for the past two years, this has been what it's been known as in my head) Genre: Kind of like Final Fantasy 12 (a bit of fantasy and technology and political intrigue) Plot: Lydia McNamara has lived a charmed life. The youngest of three siblings, she avoided selection to the military academy to secure their family's position within the shielded Citadel. Instead, Lydia received the finest education and the twins became the shining stars of the Academy and join the Elites as heroes of the realm. It's almost idealistically perfe

  24. Make sure to give your character wants and needs. What they want and what they need don't need to be similar, in fact you'll get better conflict if what they think they want isn't necessarily what they actually need. These wants and needs will help give your character motivation and purpose, a reason to exist within your original or fanfiction world. And your character having a reason to be in a fictional world will help them avoid the Mary Sue status. They shouldn't be there just to be a romance option for a character. (Now as a caveat I'll say that when I'm talking about original charac

  30. The thing about canon is that no one can write the character perfectly in character - none of us are the creator. We don't have the same experiences or the knowledge the creator has. And we, as people, see different elements in characters that we relate to more than others. So the way I might write a character will be completely different to how another person might write them. But we'll both think we're writing them in character. I might focus on their protective vibe that was shown in one season while another writer might focus on their defensive attitude. But we're both writing canon versio

  34. I mean, we could also include anime reviews, I'm sure some of us have our favorites that we'd LOVE to gush about or shows we want to rip apart, put back together, and rip apart again. For example, Pokemon, some like the original, others thing Johto is better, or they found Pokemon Chronicles or Pokemon Origins to be vastly superior, or Beyblade, some of us grew up with the Original, others could be fans of the Metal Fight series or the Burst series.

Edit: I wrote it now, that sentence made me think of a scene from One Piece so I sorta did my take with it. --------------- “I have something to tell you.” she says gravely. Robin’s eyes are fixed on the two figures before her, the blond cook and the reindeer doctor stare back, confused, incredulous. She keeps the impassive facade she so long practiced during twenty long years on the run, but in her chest, her heart is pounding hard, and not even the sound of the harsh wind and crashing waves

    Beyblade

    Tyson and Hilary is a great ship. I adore them so much together and their over the top pointless arguments. I used to put Max and Emily together just because they existed and interacted a time or two but honestly, I can't create chemistry between them so I'm more inclined to put Max with Rick. I could see Emily and Michael together but it's not something I've ever planned to include in something I'm writing. Emily/Eddy could also work. When I first got into beyblade fanfiction writing, only the first season had come to Ireland, so I only had two female characters to play with. So I c

    To be honest, I don’t think any couple in the anime are canon so everyone’s free to ship and let ship which is actually pretty great. Loads to loads of interpretations and different fanfictions. I personally don’t ship Salima with anyone because she never interested me as a character but I do ship Rei/Mariah and TyHil because I’m a sucker for those personality types and tropes.

  40. My advice to myself: Don't follow the trends. Just because Kai/Rei was popular, it did not mean I had to write it too Step outside my comfort zone. I was too scared to venture outside the box and often just did what other people did. 'Boris laughed evilly'. Stop using too many adverbs to describe stuff that should be apparent in dialogue. It's okay to make the Bladebreakers lose battles. Don't write too many stories all at once. There's a good chance none of them will ever get finished. It's okay to write about other pairings outside the common ones.

    If you could give advice to your younger beyblade fanfic writing self, what would it be? For me, it would be: don’t write beyblade fanfiction lol - as much as I love it, it’s a black hole that sucks up all my time and has prevented me doing original stuff and it’s a small fandom now compared to what it once was. I should have quit 10 years ago. learn to say no to people’s ideas - especially if you’re not comfortable with the idea Don’t write for the readers, they eventually move on you don’t need all those OCs - yes they belong to a friend who asked you to use

  43. Part of the problem for DAI's protagonist is that we have no understanding of who they are, where did they come from. And I get it, they blacked out and that's part of the story, the mystery of how they got the glowy hand. BUT the background is doled out in passing comments, and letters in the war room which doesn't give us a good base for who this person is. So they're basically a macguffin given a personality by the gamer but it's not shown in the game. Hawke had a very solid background and personality forged by interactions with the mother, the brother and the sister or whatever versio

  44. This all comes down to your interpretation of character bashing. For me, character bashing is intentionally setting up a character in your story to be the victim (raped, abused, beaten up, mocked, bashed up etc etc) because you don't like them in the canon. For example, I'm not a big fan of Kenny in Beyblade, but I don't go out of my way to mock people who like him, argue with people online and offline my reasons and etc. I also don't go out of my way to intentionally make everyone in my story hate that character too. I remember this person a few years back who hated Tyson and thought Kai

  45. So in this context, what is your interpretation of character bashing? Is it writing a character as evil/bad for plot purposes or is it when someone who hates a character actively shows that dislike in how they treat them? My understanding is that it's the second option. So for example: an author is creating a story and they want to pair their OC with Rei but he's usually with Mariah. So in the story the author would make Mariah completely unlikeable, no plot justification, she's just an outright bitch to the OC for no reason but to highlight how the OC is so much better, so much nicer than

As an author, you must know to have control on your hand and turn the characters in different directions according to your wishes. Besides, for bringing exceptional and unique flavor sometimes, you need to think beyond the general/common villains and try one of the protagonists to be an antagonist or vice versa. If character bashing didn’t exist, a mighty epic which is considered to be the very first and most famous epic of Bengali language based on an

Okay so beybattles, I don't mind them but I tend to focus on the character's emotions during them and what the bitbeasts are doing rather than the physics of the blades because quite frankly, that part bores me. The spinning tops are not my focus in anything I write, I am more intrigued by the mystical element of bitbeasts. Like how Wolborg could steal the breath from your lungs as she drops the temperature in the bey stadium, or how people need to shield their eyes and hold tight to their seats as Dragoon unleashes its ultimate attack. Because that's what I feel the spectators are there for.
