So Not In Control

Rate this Entry
So I was working on some Pokefiction, but I just got so bored with that story, and dropped it. I was approaching it from the wrong avenue, but now I feel I have a solid hook for my special brand of Pokefiction. Like with my last fic, I intend to get a few chapters and/or shorts together before I post. This time I'll hopefully stick with the fact that it deserves to be posted.

Someone In Control just wasn't my best foot forward, so now its remaining chapters will be stored in my massive Fandom archive files of stories that no one will ever see the ending to beside me. So selfish, right?

When Black 2 & White 2 was released I made several one page comics that told stories about the trainers we created (my friends and I) in our games, I believe I'll be adapting those into longer, prose fiction, and trying to build a cohesive story around them.

I have a small group of close friends that all play the Pokemon games, and with me and my wife included, it's only about nine of us, which is why I often times find myself on boards such as these, since no one likes to obsess and scrutinize quite like I do.

And, while my friends are good people, they drop games like flies, as most current generation gamers do. They follow the hype, so they never stick with any specific game long term. Unlike me, and I'm simply stuck in my ways at this point. But, when they ride the hype for a new game, they ride it hard, like Donald Trump finding a cheap hooker who doesn't recognize him.

Ahem, and so I made these short one page epics that I did at the midnight release while waiting in line for some odd hours to get these games. Now then, we'll see if something comes from it.

Currently the plan is to have a thirteen episode epic, with six accompanying shorts that weave a tell some weeks before the initial first episode. I use episode terms as a nod to the anime, but I mean chapters.

We'll see how it goes. Maybe I'll even post some of the related art that ties into the fiction.

    That sounds very interesting. Regarding your friends dropping their games; maybe you can implement that into the story? Have a bunch of trainers start their journey, then get bored and give up one by one; it can even be a mystery who will stick to the end.

    Oh, I love that! Thank you. I'll have to rework some of the basic premise, but that's a solid idea. Thanks much.
