Heres my idea, don't steal it. ._. It's copyrighted. ©Kelly or Snowball Sunday.

It's about a girl who was born into a rich and beautiful family. The family is very vain and arrogant. Anyway, the head of the family and his wife had many children, mostly daughters, and they were starting to get too old to have more. So they decided to have one more, the very last of the line. They have high expectations for her, but when she is born, she turns out to be ugly. But, she is very smart and kind. Unfortunately, the family doesn't care for these aspects of her personality, and shun her. Even the village she lives in shuns her. The girl's only escape is a small meadow outside of the village, filled with wildlife, plants, and magic.



I'll post more later, but I'm tired. This is a Pokemon fan-fiction, but it has little to do with Pokemon in the begginning. (Ack! Spelling!)

Snowball, you can't really copyright ideas. Mind you, if someone is blatantly copying...

Anyway...

Here's my idea that I'm executing during school, stealing minutes of time every class:


It has been nearly three hundred years since the Hackley Empire, then under the banner of Team Nebula fell the giant nation of the United States at the Battle of Cheyenne, May 21st, 2059. The years have passed quickly, and the arms of the Hackley Empire have stretched throughout the reaches of the solar system. Cities line the coast and reach towards orbiting space stations. The moon is now inhabited with 68 lunar complexes.

Enter Horizon Complex, consisting of fifteen wards, the sixteenth upon its way. Enter Adam Jefferson Young, apprentice to Gravitational Transistions Specialist Doctor James W. Allen. Allen is, in fact, a recruiter for the rebellion and has just proposed Adam traveling to the Farside Rebel Base near Borealis Complex. Adam takes the opportunity, meets Rebel Operative Lindsey O'Brien (alias Jessica Dorado) and arrives at Borealis. After the meeting, he is thrust into a revolution spanning the system, its fingerings even clutching the nearest system such as Alpha Centauri.

Enter 'Revolution'. Coming July 4th, 2007.

THE REVOLUTION.

IT BEGINS.

Snowball – Well, since this thread is made for giving advice, I'm just warning you that I have seen plenty of Fanfictions about a child of a rich family, who is shuned because of how he/she looks, or thinks. However, I also think that it's one of the better of the "overused" ideas, and therefore say go for it. But remember, write it as originally as possible. With stories about themes that are common, it's always best not to even take ideas from another writer. But some people (like me) gain more expereince from doing so, so I can't say much on that subject. Anyway, I'll be looking forward for that Fiction. You may have a reader already.

Frosty – You do like your Science-Fiction, don't you? And you do like putting Pokémon into the real world (litterly)? But you're an expert at both of those fields, so I hope to see yet another story from the great Frosty...

Ze Gobou – I'm guessing so, but I'm not one hundred percent sure. But as my comment shows, I certain believe so.



* * *



Now for my own story idea. I hope to get a lot of feedback on this, so even if you don't intend on reading this, I'd like it a lot if you'd pop in a comment; I'll give you cookies!

Anyway, those of you who have read my previous works, know that I focus very much on my description, and consider it as one of the most important aspects of my writing. But I've decided to give another style a go, and see how it works. A sudden remembrance of Neo's MD Fanfiction made me want to write something about a Pokémon, and all form the Pokémon's point of view. But I didn't want to do anything to do with MD, so I decided to do something about a Pokémon who is captured, and what he feels. But I didn't want the cliched evil or unnaturaly good Trainer. And so, I decided to use a Trainer who tried to be good, but had many faults.

Now, Azack, the Mightyena is captured when he goes to find his sister, Alyam in Viridian Forest, but never actually finds Alyam. He is captured, and travels around the world with Arthur Fieldhouse, and becomes a rather strong Pokémon (all this part is not explained in the story in any way except references to "that battle in Cerulean").

And that's as far as I've gone so far. I till need to work in some sort of dillema, and have Azack solve it. Now, as I've mentioned before, this will not be descriptive, but very character driven. While it will delve deep into the thoughts of a Mightyena, and may get dark and emotional, I hope for this to be a lot more light-hearted than Betrayal, Mithrial, Dicovery, or any of my One-shots.

Comments? Crits? Say what you think.

Azeon

Well, some what. Adam used to live in Terran Lowell, a portion of Mars that is terraformed, and there was a league there. But, it got shut down...

As for the real world... it makes so much sense with the regions all very close versions of Japan. Plus, there aren't really any science fiction things at all...

DS: Nice idea. Not sure what I can do to help, but... the PPOV is sort of dead now, minus MD, which really shouldn't count because its different.

That sounds like an interesting fic, but I'm unsure of how I could help as of yet. Not all Pokemon POV stories are dead. *pokes Shadow Mist and Shadow Sky with a scowl* Then again, I've probably been forgotten or never heard of, but I'm fine with that since I'm used to it. ^_^;;

I'm in a Latiosful (it's a word now) mood. I don't know... I thought up some kind of a story involving dragon Pokemon, namely the Lati's. Here's the basis of the plot, kinda:

Her brother died long ago, but Latias learns to move on, joining a rag-tack group of Dragon-type Pokemon in order to survive. There, she meets several interesting creatures, including Storm the reserved Flygon, Ray the outspoken Shelgon, and Zephyros, a Latios that reminds her so much of her brother... She knows that her brother is watching over her every day, keeping her safe and giving her hope in order for her to stay alive.

However, Latios realizes that he has his own battles to fight in the spiritual realm. He must turn his attention to the problems at hand, leaving his sister to fend for herself...


I have a ton of crap I need to add to this; anyone who wants to help out can PM me.

Sceptile Frost: Not exactly my cup of tea, so to speak, but it definitely looks as though it'd be interesting. I might read it, anyway. ^^

Deathspecter: I like that idea. I really don't think I've seen it used before, but it'd make for a good fanfic. I can't really say that I have any ideas for it, though.

Kaze: Yay, dragons... And the return of Ray. XD I'll help in any way I can, and I definitely want to read it. I loved that movie.

M'kay, a couple ideas of my own. None of them are very far in production, but I want to see what people think. Two total.

1) Unnamed as of yet: An 'inserting Pokemon into the real world' fic. It's about a boy living in a sleepy town in Wyoming that uncovers a scientific research facility doing testing on children. Basically, they're trying to find out what defines personality, a person's soul, if you will. They discover a way to seperate a portion of the soul from the body itself, in the shape of a Pokemon. The basic idea comes from His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman, although I intend upon changing it quite a bit from that.

2) Dainen: Land of Dragons: Thirty years ago, a new region was founded, named Dainen. It is simply a continent of two main islands, but holds new Pokemon unseen before now, many of them draconic in their looks. A Pokemon League has just been established, and four young trainers in the small town of Minivy are ready to be among the first to traverse the region and battle this new league. A journey fic, basically. New region, with some new Pokemon, and a new evil Team as well. I haven't gotten very far on the plot yet, but I've got the whole region plotted and some new Pokemon created. A lot of the new Pokemon, as suggested above, are dragon in either type or features.

Opinions are appreciated. ^^

So, the Pokemon are incarnations of the children's souls? Wow. o_O That looks like it'll be awesome.

Draaaagooonnns! XD You're obviously fond of them. Anyway, this could be nice, if you added enough twists and crap into it other than the new region. Otherwise it would be just like someone writing the storyline of a game, only without the game. I'm sure you wouldn't do that, though; you're great with ideas.

Pokemon daemons ? I find this kinda far fetched. But why not ?

I personnally had a more clichéd idea. A few days ago I posted it on another thread but it seems like I should have posted it here ^^ And my idea changed a little.

It would be a story about Kyogre, Groudon and Rayquaza.
The first part takes place in the past, with no humans, only Pokemon. Kyogre and Groudon are battling, and Rayquaza stops the battle and saves the world. To make the fic deeper, I'll try to involve non-legendary Pokemon who are not powerful enough to do anything, they can just watch the world being destroyed by the titans. The reason why I haven't started writing yet is that I can't imagine these Pokemon characters.

The second part takes place in the present (present of the anime and games). It is, of course, about Kyogre and Groudon battling again, but this time it's Team Rocket who tries to catch them in order to rule the world, but they fail, and the titans "wake up", and they fight again, and they unintentionally begin to destroy cities... and at the end, Rayquaza comes and beats the titans, but Team Rocket tries to catch Rayquaza. I think I'll involve human characters (I thought about GymLeader Winona). Of course, the story would take place in Hoenn.

The third part would take place in the future, in a future where there wouldn't be many wild pokemon left (and almost no wild places), there would be many towns etc.
Kyogre and Groudon battle again (do I need to say it ?), but this time it's because of a wild Pokemon (he wakes them up unintentionally but I don't really know how, for the moment). The humans easily manage to catch the titans with Master Balls, but it would be too easy to finish the story like that... so i got the idea of some wild pokemon stealing the balls, and setting the titans free in order to have the human civilisation destroyed... Kyogre and Groudon, of course, go out of control, and that's when Rayquaza comes... to save the world (how did you guess what I was gonna say ?). Rayquaza beats the titans, but then he realises the wild Pokemon are really threatened by the humans, and he starts destroying towns as well, until... well, I don't know how it would happen... until humans understand that it was a mistake to build everywhere, destroying the nature where pokemon live.

*sigh* It was long to type it all... Sorry for the mistakes I must have made, English's not my mother tongue.

In my fic, Kyogre and Groudon aren't sentient, they are like machines (but they obey nobody whereas a machines does) but Rayquaza is sentient.

Could you please comment on this idea, tell me if it's clichéd, what I should change, or help me with the things I said I didn't know ? Thank you in advance.

I like it. Probably becaue I like His Dark Materials, and Phillip Pullman on the whole. But you could face some serious problems, because merging ideas is sometimes dificult. I once attempted to make a Hary Potter-Pokémon fic, but it failed miserably. Why? Well, because you have to follow the rules of both ideas, and that will seriously limit your imagination. In the end you will find something that is almost exactly like one of the two ideas. But if you're going no further than the idea of the daemons, then you have a very good fic in process.

I'd comment on your other fic, but Trainer fics aren't really my kind of thing, and I don't want to say something that will make you chaneg your idea abpout writing it.

Yay, a fello Pokémon point of view fiction. yeah, I forgot about Shadow Mist and Shadw Sky...XD. But what I see for my fic is somewhat different. Anyway, I like your idea, but make sure you mae the Latis less powerful than they actually are, or else they could completely raze down anything they wanted. Good luck.

Ze_Gobou...meh, I've lost my inspiration. I'll comment on yours a little later.

Default Re: Ideas and Premises

Yes, they are Pokemon Daemons, which I interpretted from the books as being incarnations of the children's souls. Only, unlike Phillip Pullman's books, when they are young, it's form doesn't change at all. They stay the same, but have the capacity to evolve as the child ages, depending upo how they mature. In example, just because you are born with a Charmander doesn't mean it will evolve into a Charizard, but it can. Of course, no stones, happiness, ect. is required to evolve. They just do spontaneously, if at all.

Also, there are other differences from the books. They can use various moves, but they only work against other Pokemon. You also can't touch them. Only other Pokemon, or their owner, can. Really, though, it's more a Pokemon fanfic than anything, with some basic ideas thrown in from His Dark Materials and Maximum Ride. (The whole scientific laboratory thing... There's no difference in the children other than that they have Pokemon daemons.) I'll be putting in Pokeballs too, but they work very differently from the ones we know of, and have a somewhat more malignant purpose.

About the other one... I've only done basic work on it. I've got a map and several Pokemon made, but next to nothing plot-wise. -.-

@ ze_gobou: It may be a little... Much. Your best bet, in my opinion, would be sticking with the idea of the three you can best do and put the most effort into, and do it alone. It'd get boring for readers, with basically the same thing happening one after another. I'd suggest the last one. Still, the idea's not too cliched. It'd be an interesting work, that's for sure.

Talking Re: Ideas and Premises

After my first official fanfic (my first one stunk), PokeWar Episode I Shadow vs. Mirage, RP -> Fanfic, Redux/Remix, I will make another one called PokeWars Episode II Rowan's Army Redux/Remix RP -> Fanfic. For the rest of the series, I'm thinking of these:

PokeWars Episode III Revenge of the Rocket
PokeWars Episode IV A new Professor
PokeWars Episode V The Rockets Strike back
PokeWars Episode VI The Return of the Professor

PokeWars I (still working on) is sorta like Star Wars. The first one is about the Shadow Pokemon Army and the Mirage Pokemon Army.
PokeWars II is the story of Rowan's turn to the dark side, and secretly makes a Raichu army.
PokeWars III+ are stories that are yet to be confirmed.


I'm thinking of past PokeWars VI, these titles:

Fyre Spin
Fyre Blast
Sacred Fyre

Fyre Spin: Basically, Fyre is darkness and Watyr is light. But in this story, Lapras and co. learn to trust Fyre.
Fyre Blast: Lapras and co. have been kicked out of the Fyre realm. What will happen next?
Sacred Fyre: *Unconfirmed*

Beyond the Fyre and Watyr stories, I will think about after episode VI of PokeWars.

I agree with you, I thought about it just after having posted that message : only write the third part. I got writer's block about the characters of the first part and I can't get rid of that block. I would like to give it up but with only two parts it would make no sense (don't ask me why I think so, I just do). The third part is the best idea of the three, but the second part is the basic idea I had more than a year ago, and I had built everything on it in order not to make it too clichéd. I don't wanna give it up, but I tried to plan the plot and I cannot. I already wrote this second part, a year ago, and I threw it in the bin cause I found it too clichéd, at the time it looked like the Emerald version plot (with team Rocket instead of the two teams) and it was awfully written. Now I wish I hadn't thrown it because it would have been useful (in order to start with something instead of nothing). I just don't know what I'm gonna do.

But thank you for your help ^^
