  1. Absolutely. Sometimes its not the main characters that are the most interesting and need the story told. But with the budget and the need for the audience to get the biggest bang for their buck they can only focus on one major set of characters, But reading Notura's post got me thinking about side characters who need their own... the first one that came to mind was Pip and Merry from Lord of the Rings. Or the Riders of Rohan ( what were they doing the entire time their king was possessed.) And they say every villain is the hero of his own story. I think Minon's was the best fanfic based on neglected characters ( I know not really fanfic. but the movie does kind of have the feeling of a fanfic)
  2. You said it better than I did. And a few that I didn't think of
  3. This was the first piece in what might have been a series... the next one got a little too long It’s a pisser having to be the responsible one. Yet here I was again cleaning up after my big brother. So much for being the youngest child. I folded the woman’s arms over her chest in an attempt to make it look like she was sleeping. Not that was happening considering the gaping hole in the middle of her chest. “Just leave her and get your ass out of there before someone sees you.” Dustin hissed. I looked back over my shoulder to glare at the oaf who screwed-up again. “Damn it we can’t just leave her like this. If your drunken ass hadn’t shot off your mouth we wouldn’t be here now. Help me or shut the hell up so I can do this. “ He snorted in the background but I noticed he did not come any closer nor did he offer to help clean up. I added another bloody baby wipe to the pile. All that was left was the face and then we wouldn’t have to worry about Dustin’s DNA to tracing back to him. “Arn’t you done yet,” his voice hissed in my ear. If my mother had known the things I would do when she requested I watch after him on her deathbed, I know she wouldn’t have made me promise. “You’re doing it again, you stupid ass. You’ve contaminated the body and left evidence the police can use to put your sorry self in jail. Then tell me who will want to hire a contract killer who can’t keep out of lock up.” Dustin was chagrined. I knew he couldn’t help it and instantly felt terrible. Richard our oldest brother got him started down this path and then gave up on him when he felt Dustin was too dumb. Richard had a point but abandoning Dustin was too much like kicking a dog. Neither of them understood what they had done or why someone they loved could hurt them. I gathered the pile of bloody wipes and put them in a plastic bag that I carried around just for situations like this. “Look she is cleaned up. Let me just wipe down the car and then we could go.” “Thanks Janet. I don’t know what I would do without you.” I sighed. What else could I do? “I know Dustin, don’t worry about it.” I surveyed the scene and stomped on a couple of places that looked like they could be a footprint and decided I had done as much as I could. We had already been here fifteen minutes and our time was running out. “Let’s go.” There was nothing I could do to eliminate the tracks the pick-up would leave. Truth was I could only hope that Dustin still had that spare set of tires back at his place. If not a trip to pick and pull was in order. We had been driving out away from my handiwork for about twenty minutes and my cellphone started chirping. “This is Sheriff Watkins. How can I help you?”
  4. I read fanfiction because to me there is no difference between fiction and fanfiction. (I mean quality sometimes.) But man, I find a lot of really, really good fanfiction writers that should be 'published'. I am a reader and I love stories. I love the continuation of stories. Plus my favorite question is what if.... When I was a kid, I had the entire series of 'Choose your own adventure' books. There were a couple of different sets of them. With the smallest set being 15 books and the largest set being 125. The ability to go back and choose is based on a different choice. A kid's version of the show 'Sliders' (one of my favorites until the writers ruined it) I think fanfiction is the ultimate what if. As for writing it... I have faced disgust. I have been told I am too lazy to write my own stories. I have even been called a thief. I honestly don't care. To me fanfiction is my instant gratification. My crack so to speak. I love getting up and seeing the hit counter rise and kudos or comments knowing that someone read my work and has interacted with me on a very small level. Published authors don't get that instant high because while they can see sales it's not the same. Plus I get to play in a sandbox with my favorite characters interacting with them so to speak.
  5. Everyone joked about the coming apocalypse, rolling their eyes when the believers started talking about it. Hell, maybe we should have listened … even the CDC was making noises about it. But most people said, yeah right and went on with what they were doing. After all everyone knows that zombies are just Hollywood’s go to bad guys. The good news was the supernatural council worked with humans without their knowledge of course they cured the disease that caused people to turn into undead cannibals. Now we just had to get rid of the buggers. Sometimes when I pass an abandoned McDonald's I think about the amount of fast food my children and used to eat and realize that today I am fast food. And there is only one thing on the menu -People burgers served rare.

      I had not. I am checking it out now.  Do we need to log into it separately?  In the future will it be attached to our profiles?    

  7. Oh sorry. I was just trying to interact with the posts. Knowing that sometimes sharing bites are easier than chunks. I am assuming that we are supposed to just react to the six sentences and comment on the three hundred?
  8. Okay. So why these six sentences? What part of the fic are we looking at? Why would raising his tail be an odd behavior for a this Digimon. I looked up Examon and it said that Ambrose strike was done with its tail. Does this Digimon not behave like its kind? What about theses sentences made you want to post them? Where are we in the fic? What do you want me as the reader to take away from these sentences? Is Becky's loyalty going to impact Step other than making her feel guilty?
  9. The fandoms I will read was kind of difficult for me to answer. I read everything (mostly) There are fandoms I shy from but read stories from there because I am reading the author not the fandom. Most fandoms are negotiable for me. For example: I read Glee but only certain pairings. I read Star Wars, but nothing done after Episode three (OG /Prequels) It would probably be better to post the ones that I won't read. So, I will put my top twelve from book. movies, tv and games that I keep returning to. AUTHOR PEN NAME: FFN LINK: Ryker Davis | FanFiction Ryker Davis | FictionPress ARCHIVE Link: Ryker_Davis | Archive of Our Own FANDOMS I WRITE FOR: Star Wars, Replacement Killers, Glee, Dragon Age, Supernatural, Highlander, FANDOMS I WILL READ: Dresden Files, Inheritance Cycle, Mistborn Trilogy, Dragon Age, Assissan's Creed, Mortal Kombat, Star Wars (most), John Wick, Marvel (all), Doctor Who, Star Trek (all), Leverage WHAT I WANT FROM REVIEWS: Was the story enjoyable? What was your favorite part? Could you relate? What did you dislike? Your favorite line. How you connected or didn't. The beta stuff is fine. We all need help there but not my main focus for reviews. I write to tell a story, so I want to know that you enjoyed it or didn't.
  10. I know I tend to stay away from 'underage' tag because I got stuck with a story about adults with children. But then I went to write a story about teenage romance and was yelled at for not using the underage tag because the characters were under the age of consent. (A Glee pairing) Multiple triggers for a tag is a good idea. But we run the risk of a convoluted tagging system that gets out of hand like Ao3. Which is most of our complaints about Ao3. I know I am being a wet blanket but the more triggers we add the more stuff that is going to be found that triggers. A good character is going to have flaws and sometimes those flaws leave us uncomfortable but that is what makes a character real and not one dimensional. When I think of the mother of uncomfortable characters I think of Sue Silvester of Glee. (IMHO they over did her) She would have had every trigger tag in the world in any story she was in. Which means the trigger portion of the fic would be longer than the summary. How do we balance that out?
  11. I like the idea of having an archive for writing and I am game. But I do have a concern. Right now, the fandoms on this board are not very diversified. It's not a bad thing and I am not complaining. But most of the people that comment regularly only comment about two fandoms Pokemon or Digimon. Thats not to say that's all that the people here write about, but it is what comes up in almost all of the topics. And topics outside of these fandoms don't really get a lot of traction. How do we keep it from becoming stilted and fandom lopsided?
  12. I know this is old but I was curious. Then it wouldn't show the results. Or I just did it wrong. <p align=center><a target=_blank href=http://www.nodiatis.com/personality.htm><img border=0 src=http://www.nodiatis.com/pub/26.jpg></a></p>
  13. We look forward to seeing it next Saturday then. It was for Darkened-Storm's Digimon piece. I was attempting to talk about the piece without being overly familiar with fandom. So instead I focused on the story instead.
  14. Good use of conversation to convey information to the reader that they are not in the normal world they know. And they need to start learning the differences with the protag as well. But a thought. The scene is kind of emotionless. They could be talking about bread or something. I can't tell if this scares them. Or they are in wonder. I know its five sentences and that is hard to convey a lot of emotion.
