A few questions

Post by CamoBadger on Thu Dec 01, 2011 3:00 pm

Okay, I have a few questions to ask about another FF I'm planning (yes, I know I'm still working on my other one :P )

1) Is anyone interested in it based off of this description:
Spoiler:

Long ago, before the names Celestia and Luna were known, a prophet told that the end of life would come for all creatures on this world.

This event was named the Catalyst.

In a time when such a prediction was deemed as blasphemy, the prophecy was only spoken in whispers, barely audible to the ears of those listening. Among those who believed, were the Great Ones.
These powerful beings found truth where others saw rumor, and so they took it upon themselves to prevent this horror from befalling their world.

The Great Ones crafted 5 spiritual powers known as the Forces of Nature to prevent the Catalyst. They promised the world that when the time was right, the spirits of the Forces would be born in the flesh, and stop the horror of the Catalyst.

Many believed this Catalyst was brought about by the spirit Discord, and again with the rise of Nightmare Moon; but these tyrants came and went without the appearance of the Forces of Nature.
And so the tale was thrown into legend and bedtime stories…


2) and these tags:
Spoiler:

[Romance] [Dark] [Adventure] [Sad]

And 3) Will this be needing a Mature rating for violence:
Spoiler:

Many ponies dying, one of them is eaten, one pony will lose a leg, and many ponies will be close to death

Any input would be greatly appreciated, thanks guys Spike

I'd read it. I do think it'd need a mature rating but that depends on the site you put it on. How would you do it? Only canon & fanon, some OCs, or pure OCs?

It would involve canon characters, but the main cast will be OC.

It actually switches. For the most part, it will be from OC POV, but as of what I have planned out right now, there will be a few segments of POV from canon characters.

Sounds good, I agree Mature rating should be there, though unless you are very graphic about it, it might not be needed, it all depends. If anything a violence warning is in order. Sadly as I said yesterday fanfiction isn't my favorite content so i probably won't read it, but it still sounds good.

Though I warn you mixing Romance and Adventure can be tough and you don't want to put too much or too little stress on the romance part as it can ruin the entire story if you do.

Indeed, I will be dealing with the romance delicately. It will probably be the hardest part for me, but I like a challenge Spike

I meant like 1st person, 3rd person limited, 3rd person omniscient?

To mix adventure and romance wouldn't it be that two of them fall in love. So whenever the other is in danger, he/she tries their best to protect him/her?

Oh, right lol. It will be 3rd person and limited to whoever the POV is at that time.

Right now, it is somewhat like that.

But this is often what you will be trying to avoid, it makes the romance development really predictable and and it's sort of cliche.

not saying its not something that can be done, but if every time there was any danger one was like "I'LL SAVE YOU *heroic music*" then it wouldn't be too interesting lol.

Of course you wouldn't do it every time. But that's the basis of it. I'd say the best way to do it is be as creative as possible even with the cliches. Or make them fail. Romance allows you to bring in a lot more emotions than without it. That would be the main point of having it, am I correct?

I would assume so, unless you wanted the reader to start clopping, which isn't a good reaction at all!

I'm good at cliche, it defines any relationship I have in the real world lol


And yes, that is the true purpose behind having it. Romance definitely does a great job of making emotions stronger during the story, and makes it seem more human, at least to me.

BUT NOT CLOPPING! I will be going nowhere near there lol

SO DANCE UPON THE EDGE!!

And if losers start clopping let them, they don't need to appreciate your work, they aren't worthy of it anyway.

As long as it's got a good plot, don't be afraid to get into hinting the action. Don't focus on it though, that's when it turns bad.

True.
Don't know how many stories I've read that have been ruined by focusing on that and ignoring plot...

And I know a story that has a great plot, focuses on a relationship between Vinyl and Octavia, and includes hinting the action.

First one. I gotta catch up on it though. The biggest problem I predict will be putting it into the story in a way that advances the plot.

I need to start that one. I've read a little bit of Two's Company.

Ya, I think I've got it planned out a little, so that it won't freeze the story to have romantic parts, hopefully I can keep it that way :P

Location and situation. Force it in and it becomes a side note which jars the reader out of the story.
