Hello! I wrote a short story (I'm still editing) called When Death Walked Through My Door. I'd like some positive comments or constructive criticism if that's alright ^~^. I'm still working out the kinks, I don't usually write stories of this type!
(the story is PG or PG-13 for mature subject matter like death, illness, and indirect overdose reference. the ending is meant to be ambiguous, but I can clear a few things up if you would like! :)
Hello everyone! I’m here to announce a new writing project I’ve been working on with Tessa23. I’ll be writing two series which will eventually intertwine, and Tessa will be writing her own. It’s a Riordanverse legacy fic(as in starring the descendants of the canon protagonists), and details the end of Riordanverse universe as mythologies begin collapsing and heroes are killed. The hub page for it is here. The first part is End of an Era, by yours truly.
I know I'm a *bit* late, just a *tiny bit*, but I could share some examples with you. One is a death scene in midair. The way I ended up killing her was, "That was the last thing _____ heard. (enter) She was dead before she hit the ground." I like getting people all attached to the character, and then b o o m.
I'm worried in case anyone else on this wiki hasn't read it. I've read all seven books, The Cursed Child, the two companion books, seen the first five movies, read the screenplay for Fantastic Beasts, and seen Crimes of Grindelwald.
So, I need help with a Wings of Fire fanfiction I'm writing. I haven't published the story yet (because I haven't started writing it), but I have the main character (and the general plot of the story) up on the WoF fanon wiki. However, even the basic plot is a big work in progress (but I'm figuring it out mostly for myself). It happens in the canon WoF timeline, but before The Lost Continent arc happened.
Basically, the part of the story that I need help with is this: Two LeafWings are sent as spies to the Hives, but they fall in love and have a dragonet. The two spies are disguised as either HiveWings or SilkWings, and they have to disguise their dragonet as the same tribe. However, I'm having trouble deciding whether they should disguise themselves as HiveWings or SilkWings. Here are the pros and cons for each option:
Would be given access to more places and knowledge in the Hives
Would be questioned less when doing odd things
The dragonet would be allowed to show her wings (and therefore fly) from the start
Harder to disguise as
Would have to pretend to be mind-controlled at times/hide when the Hive is being controlled
Might be questioned if they don’t know about certain things
Easier to disguise as
Wouldn’t be questioned as much if they don’t know about things
Wouldn’t have to pretend to be mind-controlled
Might be treated badly
Wouldn’t be allowed access to many places/secrets
The dragonet would have to pretend to be flightless until she is 6 years old
Would be questioned more if they were seen doing odd things
So, I made this on a blog post, but I don't think anybody saw it, so I made this thread. This is a thread for my announcements about a story I'm making, and for anybody to discuss theories about the story and talk about it once it comes out.
I am going to write an original story, which I will publish on here, called "You Should Calm Crown." I have ideas for the story, but have not started writing it yet. I don't know when I will start actually writing it, hopefully I'll get inspired soon. I will post announcements about the story on this thread.
In the meantime, feel free to speculate away about the story (genre, premise, characters, plot, length, etc.).
When writing, what do you find is most effective to get readers to like your characters. I usually use the strategy where the character has some unlikable characteristic that makes them not too perfect, and still relatable, but lately that's become a bit cliche, if you know what i mean.
Im trying something where the character starts out as a total douchebag, and then slowly gets better. What's a technique that works for you?
I usually base my characters off an object, so I like give them the traits I think that object would have. It’s mostly so readers can remember my characters as like “Fire-dude”, or “Plant-Person”, or whatever. Anyway, I’m probably just weird, but that’s how I do it.
I'm afraid of tipping into cliché xD, and the thing is, the relations he does have are (in-RP) stuck to him, so it'd be hard for him to develop internal conflicts without the others being affected in some way from the catalyst as well.
I’ve written a piece, called A Man and a God. I’d like to get some feedback! Just be warned, though this does work alone, it is part of a shared universe, so if there’s any confusing references, just ask me!
