Well now, Its your story, if you don't come up with a good idea, then I guess you won't have much more to write about now will ya? D: j/k

Like solovino said, its really hard to tell with what we know, and you can't give us more info with our giving away plot details.

I'm not sure really. If you want someone to talk to about it with our revealing all of your details to the whole world, then fell free to PM me.

    I don't have a sense of humor. So that makes things hard sometimes. D:

      Next time, I'll post a big giant winking smilie that's old-school and has been around since the early days of AOL.

      I'm not writing to please the majority of the fandom. I'm perfectly happy with the amount of people I have reading my fic now. Yes, it's only two, and other people posting their fics online would be wanting more, but I'm little miss eternal optimist, and I think that those two people are two more people that are reading my fics than what I had before I was publishing.

      Or, for another perfect answer to the question:

      Whatever. ;-)

        Dagnabit. I had this really impressive response, Spearow, to assure you that Asty's sense of humor is an acquired taste and not getting it is not unusual. It involved an analogy in which I compared her sense of humor to supergluing a fish to someone's ceiling.

        But then dial-up ate my response, and it took three tries to navigate back to this page.

        So, the short of it is:

        1. Asty's sense of humor is like supergluing a fish to someone's ceiling. Don't ask why. It just is.

        2. Dial-up sucks.

        They don't exactly have a higher purpose the way they are now. They're just dragons with feathers, albeit really cool ones, and they're trying to keep ye olde Evil Overlord from gaining control over them.

        That's all I could come up with after tossing out a page-long (and growing) synopsis of my entire plot.

        EDIT: Maybe that would make a good plot device, after all. The three options are a) Latis aren't killed but Overlord gains control as a result, b) Latis are killed and Overlord doesn't gain control, c) Latis aren't killed and Overlord doesn't gain control. The Lati's companions would strive for the last option, despite the opposition they would face with people telling them that they're selfish and whatnot. It might make for some good conflict and character building.

Anyone who has all of said books gains access to all of the secrets of the Latians and therefore gains the ability to control them.

        Now obviously, the Latias and Latios that the story centers on are journeying with their companions in order to recover the Chronicles before the Evil Overlord™ does. Along the way, they meet this guy who basically says "hey! If the Evil Overlord™ ends up getting the books before you, gains control of you, and turns you into evil killing machines/dark minions/living rave parties, that would be really bad! So why don't I just kill you right now and rob him/her/it of any possible chance of doing so?"

        And my characters' reply? "...You know, you have a point there."

        So I need some reason for these dragons to exist despite the fact that they may ultimately end up destroying the planet/killing a lot of people/becoming the new hit sensation. What kind of quality would make them worth keeping around?
        By far the most sensible solution: they just want to live. They know they could prevent disaster by sacrificing themselves - but deep down we all just desperately want to survive. It's why heroic sacrifices are considered heroic to begin with - deciding to sacrifice one's own life for the good of others is hard. While there is still a chance that they could prevent destruction without sacrificing themselves, they'll cling to that hope. If they end up becoming convinced that they will never prevent it otherwise, they might do it, but as long as they are living, mortal creatures, they will fear their own death and be desperate to avoid it. Emphasizing that will also make the characters feel more human and interesting.

        Makes perfect sense. I actually kind of have this basic groundwork laid out already; I just needed to tweak a few things. So...yeah. Thanks a ton, everyone. Rhymage.

          It's because everyone's in so much shock and awe by my godly presence that they've been struck dumb by the sheer aura of awesome. (I figure that if I act obnoxious enough, someone will comment, if only to tell me to STFU.)

          Seriously, though, I'm bored. I should be looking for jobs (or, at least, more than I've already applied for and something other than what I did last year) or working on over 9000 personal projects, but I'm not. To make matters worse, I recently wiped my hard drive for the third time in the space of a month, so it's not like I have many distractions. (Eureka won't recognize my iPod. iPod.) Hence, I almost want to organize a little write-a-thon a la NaNoWriMo... only, you know, not during a flipping insane month like November and for PC/Pokémon fanfiction only. Now, this is just on the fly (mainly because a certain otter wants to see life breathed back into the FFL, and I don't feel like making another bold topic), but would anyone be interested in this? If so, I shall spam the crap out of the FFL later during the development so you can tell me what kind of challenge you want and how you want it to be.

          Why, yes. Rambly post is rambly. And obnoxious. But that's because any ordinary stick isn't enough to poke this thread.

          ...So what kind of stick are we talking about here, Val?

          Ahem. The NaNoWriMo thing sounds good to me, and I might even try to do it if I can escape this writer's block. It's of the Alcatraz prison, Fort Knox's maximum security setting variety.

            txt, the thing you were doing with the links made me think of House of Leaves. And then I hovered over them to find that the URLs led to YouTube, and I was like, "House of Leaves: The Movie. Oh schist." And then I clicked on it and found that it wasn't House of Leaves: The Movie, which made me feel a little bit more relieved.

            Because House of Leaves: The Movie would require illegal substances to fully enjoy.

            Anyway, thanks for the interest. And tell me about it. Lately, if it doesn't involve aliens and/or trying my hardest to break at least one bone in Bill's body, I haven't been able to come up with much else. Hopefully, if this happens, I'll actually have some sort of inspiration by the end of week one.

            Edit: Also, the wooden kind. As in, the wooden kind that's about six feet long and three feet wide and attached to some kind of wheeling mechanism. I guess you would call that a "battering ram," but whatever.

              Every time I hear "sticks" and "poking", I think of dirty things.

              I'd be interested in a write-a-thon for PFF&P. I was thinking of doing a personal NaNoWriMo, because November is a busy time for me with work. Summer is better (except for patriotic holiday weekends, but I have vacation time! YAY VACATION TIME! =D=D=D=D) But if there's the support/competition (Competition is healthy. Scott Adams said so!) then it'll be even more fun, and will keep my rear in gear.

              Also, I've never seen the first Tron.

              I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT, BUT I'M POSTING ANYHOW! IN CAPS LOCK! :D

              This place was dead because of HGSS. Seriously, what's up with blue hair being awesome? O.o;

              Anyways, a write-a-thon thing sounds awesome. I remember in one of the forums there's something like that. Each week there's a topic and you have to write a short story on that topic within the word limit. Perhaps something like that?

              Well, now that you've seen the trailer to the second one set to dirty-as-dirt house music, I doubt you can resist. That is, if your tastes in...*ahem*..."viewing material" are what you claim them to be. Although I doubt TR2N has anything like that in it. But it might.

              Maybe.

              Indeed - HG/SS be partly why I am dead. (Plus betaing and essays to write and three tests a-coming doesn't help either).

              I would be interested in write-a-thons or what-not. Doubt I'd have much time for it though. =/

                Writing thing, sounds interesting.

                If it weren't because I'm still a bit handcuffed schedule-wise, I would totally be in. Somehow my collegue's hardware knows when to fail...

                But, hey, if enough people talks about it, and enough people goes in, and enough people makes veiled references to things with sticks (very wide ones, alas), then wht!, I'm ALL 4 IT anyways!

                  Anyways, a write-a-thon thing sounds awesome. I remember in one of the forums there's something like that. Each week there's a topic and you have to write a short story on that topic within the word limit. Perhaps something like that?
                  Hmm. I like that idea, actually. It's quicker, easier, and there's less of a concern about the organizer upping and quitting halfway through. XD

                  Would a week to write 7k words sound like enough of a challenge? Or should the word count be higher?

                    It's rather dusty in here. :{

                    Personally, I'm fine with the amount of words necessary for the challenge being 7k words. It depends on what the prompt is (and obviously, the option of "another fandom" isn't going to be allowed) to make me even able to reach that high of an amount of words.

                    For now, it would be good to keep the amount needed low, until we all actually get used to the schedule. This is a way to get us all to write on a schedule, right?

                    I'd help out

                    Still despite my newbiness here

                    Perhaps to make the 7k words somewhat easier (1k a day?), the canon could be based on certain things, to at least narrow down focus. As an example, one could refer to the anime. Thank god I have all summer though Oo lol (aside from work). I'd also want to write on pen and paper, but porting it to the computer isn't fun. Rather I'd just plan on paper. Though I do hope they have a word program like thing for the DSiWare soon... cause I'm going on vacation.

                    I liked the idea of the Serial game, accept the current story that it's headed in, is something I probably won't continue otherwise (but hey that is one of the many reasons why it is created, haha).

                    /me removes dirty thoughts of sticks and other things out of head.

                      Hmm, that idea sounds interesting. I'm a big fan of anything that makes me feel like I have to write (such as the corpses and that Serebii contest I did last year) so a mini-NaNoWriMo would be interesting, especially since doing the real one has been something I've thought about before. I know there's no way in hell I'd be able to do that, though. 50k words is twice the length of what TFC has right now, and...that'd just be insane.

                      7k, on the other hand, is right about my current average chapter length. (Which is actually about 8k but whatever. More is better.) Depending on my mood and all it can take me a month or more to write one of these chapters, but I know I can be faster as evidenced by how fast I was at the start of TFCv2, as well as the increased speed I've been writing lately. I had to rewrite half of what I already had for TRINITY chapter 3 and have since added probably about as much, to the point where I plan on finishing it up in the next day or two. All of this was on top of finishing TFC chapter 4, and this has all happened in the span of just about a week since I got out of school. Plus, I've still had plenty of time for video games, wondering how the hell I managed to get an A in Calculus 2 since my calculations say that even if I aced the final (which has never happened for me EVER, in any class) I still should have gotten a B unless I'm grossly underestimating the unknown total grade for the quiz/homework portion, and even reading AEM. :D

                      So yeah, I'd be interested and think that 7k in a week is fine. For reference, that's about 12 to 13 pages for me, although depending on how "dense" your writing is it'll vary. I write somewhat dense with longer paragraphs for description, so I'm probably on the low-end of the spectrum there regarding page counts. (Not counting the people who don't space right <_<). I'm guessing the average for most people would be closer to 15. In other words, the people who find that they can't write one single piece (be it a one-shot or a chapter) for longer than five pages might want to stay away, unless their writing is dense enough that it's in danger of collapsing on itself. (Actually, I just went through one of my chapters and after removing all line breaks I only got up to 4k in five pages, and by that point it was already the worst wall of text I've ever seen.)

                      7000 words in a week sounds good; less per day than NaNoWriMo and for less time, which makes it easier to participate, but still a challenge that will get something done. I like it.

                      So apparently Mastermind got locked on another forum I post my fics on due to neglect. A sudden influx of members came in due to Platinum being released and started making a lot more threads, which means my fic threads are dropping like rocks. So now I may actually have to update frequently to keep them from being closed.

                      I think that's good, actually. No more six-month hiatuses for me.

                      Yeah, 7k sounds like a good amount to go for.

                      And txteclipse, that sucks. Huh, I thought many people would make HGSS threads. O.o

                        7k in a week... that's perfectly reasonable. Still a challenge, but not overwhelmingly daunting (NaNoWriMo just seemed impossible the first time I tried it--I failed utterly xD)

                        Did the fic just get locked? Or was it several weeks ago when Platinum came out and you just realized today?

                        I'm assuming it was a while ago. I went to check on it and lo and behold, the reply button was crossed out. There had been no replies since like...last October?
