Merry Christmas to my fellow writers.

 

Currently working on some projects specifically for posting on this board. It's a story in the style of a gaming campaign journal/After-Action Report of sorts based in my love of tabletop RPG's and Wide Open Sandbox video games.

 

So, there would be "stats" of sorts, each chapter tracking the protagonist character's equipment, vitality, and progress within the world of the story. There would be multiple protagonists and each chapter is written in the First-Person perspective.

 

Not sure if I want to set the story in a traditional Medieval Fantasy/Swords & Sorcery setting like the early editions of Dungeons & Dragons or instead do a zombie apocalypse setting inspired by Day Z, the early Resident Evil games, and The Walking Dead. Personally, I am leaning towards the latter idea, with a fictional country setting that blends both Appalachian-American and Eastern European influences and aesthetics.

 

I might even make an in-universe "Concept Thread" if that is okay. Not as an actual concept thread like in the GTA General Discussion, but more of as a framing device for the main story, the journals and survival logs of the characters in the story.

 

Chances are that I'll post the mini-Concept Thread as a post in this thread than have it take up space as a thread in this sub-forum. I know a while back we voted down the idea of Concept Threads in the Writer's Discussion.

 

I've already got some hand-written bullet-point style outlines of the project in my notebook beside me right now. This isn't some flash-in-the-pan impulse story like my previous one-shots and failed stories, but a dedicated writing project.

I'm officially on Wattpad, my username is Noctis712. Just posted the first chapter of a story a few hours ago. Technically it's a Final Fantasy XV AU fanfiction, but only in the most loose of terms.

 

https://www.wattpad.com/story/139050744-insomnia-by-night

 

Feel free to check it out, I might cross-post it here. I'm focusing on Wattpad since it has more activity than the Writer's Department here and so I can stay motivated more easily. I wish we had more activity here.

What kind of assignments should I expect when I move on to Creative Writing? I'm talking about community college btw. Yeah, I know, "Community college?? Hahaaha!" Please, don't rub it in. But, I'm planning to transfer to a four-year university, so..

I have no experience with college or uni so I couldn't say. But I'm sure you could do a web search for creative writing assignments and find some open source examples or criteria? Bit of a stab in the dark for me to be honest. Beyond school I never took on any writing education.

Currently writing a new story on Archive of Our Own, it's a fanfic for The Sopranos.

 

The Sopranos is one of my favorite shows of all time, and I was obssesed with it when I was fourteen and fifteen, and I even made some fan characters for that show back then. Due to a mix of nostalgia and wanting to write something really bad, I started work on the fic featuring these OC's.

 

Here is the story in question

 

Feel free to leave a comment on the fic at the site, Archive Of Our Own does allow guests to comment on works. You don't need to have an account there.

This is going to sound weird, but I really want to write a superhero story.

 

I know it's derivative, but I sort of had an idea where several anime characters are re-imagined as classic comic book superheroes from both DC and Marvel.

 

Levi Ackerman and Eren Jaeger would be Batman and Robin respectively, while Goku would be Superman and Sailor Moon would be Wonder Woman, stuff like that.

 

I dunno, it could be fun.
