@xlr87t3: First chapters are hard for everyone, so don't get discouraged there. As for characters, once you get rolling new characters will come out of the trees, so just focus on a core group, say 5-6, depending on how grand this tale is, and then add more as they are needed (or appear). Lets start with the MC. A name would be good, then add a few character flaws. Are the weapons standard or does he prefer them? Does he enjoy fighting or hate it? What are his powers? What does he want out of life? You don't have to tell me, these are just good starting points. Once you know what the character wants the story will begin to show itself, since the story should involve some conflict for our hero. Nail those things down and we'll move on

@wildvine: Well I had a rough draft chapter, but it's not good enough to be a legit chapter. His name is Gaston Skovgaard. And as for the weapon, I don't want him to ever use a sword, averting the Heroes Prefer Swords trope. His main weapon is a spear, hands down, and story-wise I can make it so that he doesn't have much knowledge using swords anyways. So it's kind of both standard and a preference.

He dislikes fighting, like most normal people, but he'll fight if he must. Gaston has been in a few small fights before the start of the story, mainly by the local lord.

His powers are gained from a rock underneath the ground, which he fell upon when he was just about killed by a group of knights as they were raping and pillaging the "enemy" village and Gaston tried to run away & snitch. To him, it is a gift from the gods, but in reality its highly advanced extraterrestrial technology that gives him: Superhuman strength, speed, durability, and upgrades his weapon massively. His spear is like Mjolnir in that it always comes back after it is thrown, and it can pretty much pierce anything ("unstoppable spear vs unbreakable shield" trope).

What does he want out of life? He wants to do the right thing, and keep his morals in this darkened world. He's a very pure character, and is trying not to break. Gaston also yearns for respect, which no one seems to give (a recurring joke that eventually becomes a serious issue).

@xlr87t3: Okay, what if there are other pieces of this alien tech in the world? What if someone already found some? That could be your answer to magic if you wanted. Now just make some support characters. A friend, a father figure, a love interest, something like that.

@wildvine: Well, he has his Mom, his brother. I might make a bodyguard like Skyrim's housecarls after the King notices him, but I'm not sure. This guy obviously doesn't have a lot of friends.

But your idea about there being more than one of those mysterious rocks is pretty great idea IMO. But it should still be extremely rare, so to mosy parts of the world something like this is still extraordinary.

@xlr87t3: Oh I agree. There should only be one or two other alien artifacts, if that. But you can sprinkle legends about objects since legends can be true, exaggerated or even completely made up. Okay if he doesn't have a support cast then you need some co-stars that don't directly tie to him and have their own things going on. Or that's what I would do. Its possible to write a story mostly about one character, but its easier when you have good cast of characters

How fantastic are you going? Demons and elves and such, or more real-world creatures?

@wildvine:There are multiple characters, it's just that most of them are villains or eventually revealed as such. For example, the king is a big one, since Gaston idolizes him to the point where he's practically a father figure, and the King would naturally want someone as gifted as him to work for and report to himself (the King). After the whole "knights raping & pillaging village" fiasco (which ended in all the soldiers dying and the remaining townspeople wondering WTF just happened) the King basically played dumb and chastised those dead men, while praising Gaston's good deed. Again, manipulation.

It's mostly realistic so far, except there's dragons (can't go wrong with dragons)

I need feedback to my fanfics

.

- Sunshine is far away (https://comicvine.gamespot.com/forums/fan-fic-8/sunshine-is-far-away-capt-america-mirrorverse-read-1986877/)

- Spider-Man: Shattering the looking glass (https://comicvine.gamespot.com/forums/fan-fic-8/spider-man-shattering-the-looking-glass-1986866/)

- The creepy case of Captain Rogers & Herr Schädel (https://comicvine.gamespot.com/forums/fan-fic-8/the-creepy-case-of-captain-rogers-and-herr-schadel-1986864/)

.

Sunshine Is Far Away is about an alternate universe where Captain America is a villain and Red Skull is a hero.

Spider-Man: Shattering The Looking Glass is about Spider-man ******** with dr. Dooms invention and getting sent to an universe where the avengers are evil and their enemies are good.

The Creepy Case Of Captain Rogers & Herr Schädel is an AU inspired by Jekyll & Hyde where Steve is Jekyll and Red Skull is Hyde and it's all the serum's fault.

I am currently posting my story - Star Wars - The Campaign (A Marvel Story)

Synopsis:

Time is off, something is wrong. Events are not happening in the way it is suppose to have happened. After the events of a New Hope, something or someone, has given Darth Sidious reason to investigate a fable, his universe is not the only one. His universe is actually 'half' and the other is void of the force. Darth Sidious is now on a quest to tear across time and space to Universe 616, the rightful home universe of the Dark Side and thus bring the Galactic Empire into a Sith Sovereignty. Everything is about to change for the Rebel Alliance, for the Marvel Universe and Time and Space as a whole and it all begins with one person - Uatu the Watcher.

Hey guys, recently joined the site and thought I'd give this a shot.

The story I'm working on is a Batman mystery inspired by the James Bond-esque 1970s Bruce Wayne. It takes some cues from that era of Batman, Indiana Jones pulp adventure, and novels like The Da Vinci Code. Essentially it's an occult detective story starring Batman, with a mystery that leads him across the globe. Hope you enjoy it.

Link to my first chapter is here if you feel like checking it out:
https://comicvine.gamespot.com/forums/fan-fic-8/batman-demon-knight-1-1994565/

Looking forward to reading the stuff posted by other writers on the forum as well. Feedback always appreciated.

Hello lot been long time since I've been posting fairly consistently but I'm back. Can I get some honest feedback on my new stuff. They're introductions of characters I'll be working on more here soon. One more to write then going to start writing into a wider story that intertwines them all.

They will be in the same "universe" just not same time periods and such or even same planets.

It started as a me giving my take on certain things but turned into a whole universe in my head so I hope you enjoy the beginnings of The Verse

Once I've made the intros I'll show the broader universe. The stories will directly involve and indirectly involve these main set.

Enjoy and welcome

@donnieboy16: You can post links to every chapter if you'd like... If you do consider setting them within a spoiler block to make it a little cleaner. Another thing to consider is to just add links to the next chapter in every previous installment (makes it easy for people to just marathon all of it if they so wish)

Fan-Fic Rules and FAQs. That might be a little outdated, but it's still pretty much the same. Basically, no F-bombs, no porn, and you're pretty much good. Overall, keep in mind that this is a "family-friendly" site.

With no way to return, he decides to continue his crusade to kill off the criminal elements of society with renewed vigour, just the same as he does anywhere else that he goes- but is Sin City too much of a crime-infested cesspool for the Punisher to stand a chance of succeeding? Who would be willing to join him or ally with him in his fight to kill off as many criminals as he can, which of Sin City's criminals would be the first names on his to-kill list, how close will he come to losing his life in his gun and hand-to-hand battles with them, and will he ever manage to cleanse Sin City of crime and corruption? If there's anyone else who'd be willing to collaborate with me on the project, I'd be glad for any help you have to offer.

So... I currently have the workings of a fanfic about my own version of Earth-Two (whether it'll actually get written is another story...). At it's core, it's mostly based off the Pre-Crisis Earth-Two (So, Golden Age heroes like Jay Garrick!Flash, Alan Scott!GL ect., focus on the next gen heroes, that sort of thing), with smatterings of Pre-Crisis and Post Crisis canon mixed in for good measure.

I've currently hit a snag regarding the "modern day" sections of the story. My problem is this; Do I take the easy way out by making the "present day"... well, the present day? Or do I stick with the time-honoured DC tradition (well, apart from that time in N52!E2) and set the "present" in the mid-to-late-1990s so that the Golden Age heroes start their careers by fighting in WW2?

I'd appreciate some advice on this dilemma ASAP.

THE SEARCHER

STORY: In a world where all fiction is real, the age of heroes is fables. This is the land of the lawless. The land where the digital realm has successfully merged with the physical. A land where some are mutants, others are androids, some are alien, and everyone is lawless. This the land of the bio-technical. This isn't a friendly world. This isn't a world for those for those who can't assimilate. This isn't a world for one man to search for the killer of his wife. This isn't world for a man to find the kidnapper of his child. This isn't a world for an Analog Man.

But this is his story.

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away...

A planet has been etching its way into darkness slowly but surely with each passing moment, a world in which those in power have been extending their influence over those who are below them much longer than was originally there. Those who were supposed to inherit the world have been cast out by the powers that be and cursed to never even be granted the release of death only sinking deeper into the abyss. One, however, was chosen amongst all the other walking undead that spreads across the land from the Undead Asylum to Lordran itself to make a pilgrimage and link the first flame once again. This chosen undead has known nothing aside from the asylum in which they have rotted for generations with the only thing keeping them from going hallow was willpower...enough so that a green star fell from the heavens down to them.

Coming soon

I was just wondering if there's any interest in a collaborative group project set in a shared DC/Marvel Universe. I've got a few ideas here and there for different characters but the sheer scope of the story keeps getting away from me.
