So in response to that thread about having difficulty writing battles, I got the idea to make this thread for other concepts we have difficulty writing, for any fandom or original story.
For me, I find doing dungeons in a Legend of Zelda story to be really hard at times. I mean, I can come up with the theme and main mission for one as well as a boss with little problem (usually), but designing enough rooms and puzzles for it just gets frustrating. I don't need to do every single room because both I and my readers would find that tedious and maybe even boring, but doing just some gets difficult. Though, when I finally do come up with this stuff, I'm pleased with my result. :)
In the Zelda fic I'm working on, I've got four dungeons so far. Well, mostly. The fourth one is still in progress and is the one I'm stuck on right now because I can't seem to come up with any puzzles for the rooms or a general layout of the temple. But I have the theme and main mission. The theme is the sun (as the dungeon is the Sun Temple) and in order to conquer this temple, Kelli must find out how to light up all ten flares on the big sun in the main chamber. This will give her access to the boss, the monster fought at the end of each dungeon. And the boss will be some kind of sun-themed sky serpent. But this is all I have so far. xP
In Pokemon, I'd probably have trouble with caves and such for similar reasons.
