View Full Version : I need ideas!!

September 5th, 2008, 8:02 PM
Hi there everyone! I am currently wanting to make a fanfiction but I can't think of any plots. Like wether to do a MD, Sinnoh storyline, Kanto storyline, Johto storyline, Hoen storyline, or a pokemon storyline where the main charecter is a pokemon. So please if you will post an idea...Please!

Do whatever you want.

No, seriously. First step of any fanfiction is to think of an idea yourself. Otherwise, while it's perfectly possible to do request fics, it's just not quite yours, if that makes sense. As in, you'll be asking us to write a story for you.

So, here's what you do:

- Take a blank piece of paper.
- Write down all those concepts you came up with. Maybe even more.
- Write down as many details as you want about each until one of those concepts seems like an awesome story that you want to spend a lot of time on.
- Go with that one.

If you're asking us which one we'd like the most, to be honest, I've seen so many of each of them that it really doesn't matter to me. While I'm not saying you should ditch them and go with a different concept, I'm just saying it depends on how you do it, and chances are, you'll have readers regardless of which one you choose.

Yes, this isn't helpful, but I always like seeing the writer come up with ideas themselves. They usually end up more satisfied with what they produce.

That and I am (and, doubtful, anyone else here is) not a muse. Intentionally, anyway.

Maybe choose a completely new region that you make up. Be creative and tink of the story that is unique. :)

I personally recommend not doing an OT fic. So many new authors do that, and not very well, nor do most get finished. The idea of a journey through a region is very overused, and I don't recommend it, unless you can make a twist, and a good one at that, in the storyline.

Do what you want to do. As mentioned by Silver, a lot of people do journey through regions and the general clichés. But if you want to, do it. I did, I like writing it and improve my writing so when I do think of an original story i'll write that. I understand I have posted this a few days late, but Pikalover still might want to read this post.
