Default A fic idea

The title I've been able to think of is "An Unlikely Alliance".

The below is a summary.

Abandoned by their parents at birth, Alexa (a Shinx kitten) and Axos (Houndour pup) are taken in by a lone Luxray queen. As the pair mature, it is their unlikely alliance that will forge a friendship between Houndoom and Luxray forever.


I'd appreciate it if anyone could tell me whether or not this is a good idea.

Ah, okay. I like the idea, but is there a proper plot and stuff? If you go into a little more detail though, I'll be able to tell what it's about. :3 I like the idea of the friendship being formed like that, but a more in-depth description about the characters and plot will make it easier for people to comment on.

It's a nice concept, but like Suicune said there has to be an actual plot as well. It would be easier to tell you our opinions if you gave us more info on the characters and plotlines themselves.

Here are some ideas a friend and I came up with...

The Houndoom are finding that prey is scarce, so they start pushing the boundaries of the Luxray pride.

Humans were encroaching on the Luxray and Houndoom territories. This drove away the parents and Alexa and Axos were left behind.

A rogue female Luxray could find them and take care of them, and the young ones become friends as they mature.



And this is my friend's reply from another site...

Quote:
Alright, now then.

The reason for leaving (I think Tigrerra already listed) is that humans advance on the houndoom's/luxray's territory, in which they are already at a territory war type thing, therefore having the rivalry between the species. Now then for the parents leaving, I don't know how violent she wants to get, but my idea (I'm helping to somewhat write this) is probably the parents get killed during the human occupation of the land. And for the other Luxray taking them both in, maybe the young houndour and shinx get on friendly terms and the shinx convinces the Luxray to take him too.

hope that kinda clarifies...ish?

Hmm, have you seen the sequel to the Lion King? There are two rival prides who are having territorial conflicts, but there are a pair of juvienilles who become fast friends. In the end, it is these two who finally make peace between the prides.

Maybe you could go along with that story, but modify it for Pokemon.

Charmander, using The Lion King 2's plot and throwing in the words 'Houndoom', 'Luxray', and 'Pokémon' every once in a while is not the best way to formulate a plot. Try doing some of your own thinking - it would probably be better than the whole 'young friends bring two rivaling clans/tribes/what have ye together to stop the old conflict' that you've suggested.

Yeah, uh...plagiarism? Good of you to suggest things, but yeah. xP

Oh, sorry. I didn't think it would be plagerism, since it was going to be with Pokemon instead of lions, and it wouldn't be following the story line exactly. *slaps forehead*

I believe it isn't plagarism unless you're reposting it and calling it 'The King of Lions', but even if it isn't stealing some other idea and usng most of the plot is still a undesirable way to go. Besides, what do you do if someone asks, "Hey, where did you get this idea? It seems a lot like The Lion King"? Say, "Oh, yeah, I just took the plot of TLK2 and kinda changed it around."

Besides, The Lion King 2 was bad.

So the lesson learned: Don't listen to crazy Charmander fans, or at least this one.

Just wanted to help out, sorry.
