Fanficcers Unite! NaNo 2007

Hey guys! We might as well see which of us made that sprint across the finish line and which of us couldn't tap into our muses.

:D I made it. Yeah, uh, I don't think I ever want to try to finish a fic with 23k words to go in one night, but I did. I ended up finishing the majority of my plottish story and threw in some random scenes, crossing over in very obvious ways with some of my other fandoms (the Doctor taking Adonna to see some hedgehogs that have the ability to warp time and space with the power of rare jewels, for example, or doing the "Andrew Jackson in the main foyer of the White House" speech and her being very not impressed, or the not-so-subtle inclusion of a giant fighting robot that may or may not bear a striking resemblance to a certain Optimus Prime).

And I couldn't be happier that it's done and that I don't have to mangle up these characters and this universe any more than needed.

Did not know that this was here. *headdesk*

Oh well, I've found it now.

My NaNo novel is a fan fic of shorts. It falls under the genre of Lord of the Rings:Real Person Slash (LOTR RPS). The pairing withing is Dominic Monaghan/Billy Boyd.

It's called Music & Lyrics. All of my chapter titles are song lyrics. I think it's pretty creative of me, personally.

I'm at around 30K so far in it. And loving every word of it, of course :)

Heroes! [Nov. 10th, 2007|09:16 pm]
Fanficcers Unite! NaNo 2007

My god, the Heroes fans are just coming out of the woodwork. Hello! I'm also writing Heroes fic, and also Peter/Claude. And also AU. Obvs, all three are very popular right now.

So far I'm calling it "Eclipse". It's set so far in the future no one even talks about Earth. Did I mention it's scifi? Peter has powers and is confused. Claude has laser guns. Nathan is brotherly. Ma Petrelli is scheme-y. Bennet is morally grey. There's future!Hiro. If you're interested, this is the original outline.

Wow! [Nov. 9th, 2007|10:33 am]
Fanficcers Unite! NaNo 2007


Oh my god, I had  no idea this place existed, but I am so glad I'm not alone in the writing of a fanfic for NaNoWriMo!!  :D  I had originally planned on posting chapters as I wrote them, but because I have a destressing tendencey to go back and randomly change things from previous chapters, I decided instead to post the whole thing to my LJ comms and journals and such at the end.

My brojects consists of banging out 50,000 words of a totally AU Heroes fantasy novel, Peter/Claude-centric, and I decided to do it because, I dunno, I just figured I was getting too much sleep and needed something ELSE to occupy my mind in addition to my current insane workload!  ...yeah.

But I did finally pass the 10,000-word marker!  I'm hoping to get to15,000 before the weekend's over.  Good luck, everyone!

NaNo extract (FFVII, G, 2147 words, untitled, Marlene-centric, no-genre) [Nov. 9th, 2007|09:07 am]

Untitled FFVII Fanfic Project / G / Marlene-centric / no-genre / 2147Collapse )

Extract: "I can't see them!" she cried in dismay. Barret, standing behind her, pointed towards a streetlamp set further back along the main road, where an identifiable tuft of spiky blond hair stood out amongst the crowd. "Cloud!" Marlene called, waving her arm. "Tifa! Over here!"

Heh [Nov. 7th, 2007|11:41 am]
Fanficcers Unite! NaNo 2007

Although I introduced myself and the fact that I'm going to be stalking this community, I just realized I never actually explained my premise. Honestly, I was a bit embarrassed by the idea, but a mix of both caffine overdose and lack of sleep has convinced me it's nothing to be ashamed of.

I'm essentially doing an elaborated character background for a multifandom AU roleplaying game I'm in. Basically, while explaining the premise of the world, I'm explaining how the character I've chosen to write about reached where they are currently in the game. Dorky, yes. Easy, no. The personalities have changed so much, people in the world are closer to original characters, really, and the back stories and plot are basically original as well.

The story itself is so broad, even focusing on one character is complicated enough to fulfill the 50,000 word limit if one tries. The story's got settings, elements, and characters from a wide range of video games (Phoenix Wright, Devil May Cry, Grand Theft Auto, Suikoden, Breath of Fire, and Xenosaga to name a few) and some cartoon series (Batman the Animated series, Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni, and more).

Looking at the list of example fandoms included, the whole thing must seem incredibly random, haha.

Introduction/curiosity [Nov. 4th, 2007|08:08 pm]
Fanficcers Unite! NaNo 2007

I was just introduced to this community, as I'm writing fanfic for NaNoWriMo this year. A little about me and my story, first:

I'm Michelle, often called Crysania (and happily so...either name is good!), 32 years old, spending my life working a boring day job and getting to teach (college level music) part time. And ironically (for those who recognize the name), I am not writing a DragonLance fic. For the past several months I've been voraciously reading every darned Pirates of the Caribbean fic that includes the Jack/Elizabeth pairing (no Will for me, thank you very much!). I've been wanting to write my own POTC fic and couldn't get much further than the first short chapter each time. So I decided for NaNo to force myself into starting and continuing a fic. I've never written anything this long before so I'm quite excited to be embarking upon it. So far I've written 7018 words, which I'm thrilled with.

As to my curiosity. I'm wondering how everyone is going about his. Do you have plot outlines, clear ideas of where your story is going? Or are you just writing and seeing what happens? I'm doing the latter right now and it's been interesting so far. Things have happened that I didn't quite envision when I first set out to do it, but I like how it's turning out so far.

Ahh, irony. It sucks when it's not on your side. [Nov. 3rd, 2007|07:24 pm]

I have a brilliant original idea. It's been flitting around my mind for a couple of years now, poking me occassionally when I look at it for too long. It seemed logical; reasonable, even, that I write it for NaNo this year.

But this is writing. And NaNoWriMo. Logic need not apply.

I started writing it. I get a pretty good start. Then, I hit the wall. The wall of course, is that moment where you're writng a story and you loose all interest in it what so ever and your mind drifts away from it to something else.

The major problem with me and NaNo is that I'm working on stories year-round, both original and fic. I've been writing this one peice of fic - Harry Potter and the Unforgiven for awhile now, and I've started posting it a couple of times. It's fun to write and has been my major source of writing for the last couple of months while I revised and re-worked the whole thing so that it, yanno, had a plot. So instead of writing Starfire Quest like a good little boy, I've written more on HPU.

I'm behind on my word count, bored with my NaNo, and am working on a peice of fanfiction I can't write for NaNo, 'cause I started writing it well before NaNo 2007 began.

The irony? In 2004, I tried to write an earlier version of Starfire Quest and started writing the original version of HPU, and scored over 100,000 words in three weeks.
