I know what you mean. I've noticed that whenever a new game comes out, there are a storm of fanfics focussed around that theme, and then they die down, while the authors with more original ideas flourish. Soom MD will become like that. I bet that as soon as it comes out in English, someone will come and write a fanfic based completely and utterly on the storyline of MD.

Kind of sad if you ask me...

I think that writing a story based on a game is only a good thing if you bring some new ideas to the table. That's part of the reason I am starting my MD fic now and plotting it. I like to use many of the little details about the pokemon world they present in a game and treat them like real world elements. That's part of the reason I am not going *too* far in plotting it before I can play it ;)..

The sad 'everything by the game' authors seem to only take everything that happens in a game at face value..I can't count how many times I have seen a R/S fic start with something like

'I was in the back of a truck. There were boxes. The truck stopped and we were at our new house.'

If I was writing a R/S fic (which I never will, I don't like the pokemon set in it all that much) I would at least be wondering what was in the boxes or spin a long funny tale of the characters mom's obsessive ceramic Sorelax figure collection that had grown so big they had to hire another truck just for them

XD Heh, I MIGHT do a MD fic, I dunno. It might be fun, but I really want to finish Keepers before I plan anymore fanfics, you know? I also have to finish Long Road Home and False Apperances...but KotL is the one that's got me hooked now. And considering it's getting quite a few views (IMO lol), I'm glad people seem to like it so much.

If I was a good girl I'd wait until Fable was done to start something MD-y..........But, fooie, anything worth doing well is worth doing slowly and carefully, right..right?
Um, well, my MD fic, I'm planning on making it a short story fic..Not as short as a one shot though
So it won't take me away from Fable long anyhow...

I've never been good at really long stories...I think my longest was about sixty pages half finished. I love fanfic, but I could never see writing over a thousand pages on a single work, I guess becuase with a thousand pages I'd much rather write ten shorter stories :)

Hi there. I'm Draconic_Espeon, and I'm new to the site. I've written some fan fictions on other sites, but no Pokemon ones yet. I do have an idea, though, which is why I'm here. I want to see what some other people think of it.

If anyone has read the His Dark Materials series, the basic idea is similar to Lyra's world. If you haven't, I'll describe it in any case.

It takes place in our world, as apposed to the Pokemon world. There is a secret research facility doing experiments on children, trying to discover what exactly makes up a soul. In doing so, they often release the 'soul' from the body, thus forming two seperate, conscious beings bound by an invisible chain. The soul takes the form of one of any number of creatures, each with remarkable powers but with personalities that match that of the child's. The creatures that form are what we call Pokemon, but they will have another name for it. There will be something along the lines of evolution, probably involving puberty. But, that's just the basic plot. There'll have to be more to it.

That's all I've got for now. I really want to know what you people think. Does it sound good? Does it not sound good? Has it been done already? I'd like to know.

Thanks.

Well, it all comes down to your own writing style. When doing you own fantasy story mixed with pokemon elements its not always the best idea to base your plot too heavily on pre-existing novel elements since crossovers , even lose ones, can be a hard type of fic to write if you are not careful.
Like my pokemon Vampiric like story, I found that I have much more freedom for plotting if I did my best to stay away from the Ann Rice/Blade ideas ;).
A little more work, but much more rewarding IMHO...

As for if it is a good idea overall and if someone has done it before: I think every idea in fic has been done at least once in some fandom or another. What will make it a good or a bad story is not if it is a brand new idea but how that idea is written. I have seen many many great ideas die from not so good writing.
So I can't really say if you idea is a good one if I have not read it yet :). (And more than just a prologue to, often prologues are amazing and the actual first chapters don't quite live up to their dramatic effect. But in a really good fic they do :) )

And, ironically it's still spam. (That means I'll take a look at it.)

Anyway, an original idea, when done right, can be very popular. But so can a game-based fic, such as Hoenn: A Brendan and May Adventure. In fact, almost all of the well known fics are those that are journey fics. So original ideas can be good, but cliche can be just as good, when done right.

Hmm...

I've read some pretty good ones so far ;)

Has anyone read mine? They're in the archive and I've been getting ALOT of feedback from other sites I've advertised my work on XD

Hey, I took a look at them. But how about you post them here as well? I mean, PE2K can take all the fics we can get. And they look pretty good.

I should be. I want to...so many..good..ideas..must...get..in..mindset...of... Fable...
*hugs her some Nathan character* *looks at all the characters left to intro* Wow O.O...
Fable isn't written in my normal 'writers voice' so starting up on it again after a while is always more work than the actual writing once I get started...So if it sounds a little rusty in tone when I start again please bare with me okay?:)
