    Default Music and Fics

    If I ever get my massive fic project off the ground, I intend to have every chapter begin with a youtube link to a song, which sets the mood of the chapter. But I'm worried this could be a bit pretentious, so I thought I'd ask you guys. Is this a good idea?

    I actually wanted to do this, but I couldn't write the story.It's a good idea. I could help you with that.

    It works rather well, I think.
    Currently writing Hoenn Wars, a Travelsverse fic that needs no prior Travelsverse knowledge to understand. Chapter Seven, Sacrifice, is up.



    That's interesting; I might have a look when I have the time. Thanks!

    EDIT: Oh my god, these are too many links! Very specific...

    Well it's better then what I've been doing with side show. It's a daunting idea that I've considered before but it's not something that I feel others would appreciate as much as I would. I will most certainly read it.

    I do this fairly often. Personally, I am almost always listening to music when I read. Picking the proper background music for your readers is a good way to set the scene.

    I'm doing this exact thing with my current fic (Confessions of a Champion)

    I think it helps to set the stage for each chapter (and I listen to the songs in question while writing), but no one has commented on it so I can't tell you what people think of it.

    Same here. I dunno if anyone actually listens to them, to be honest.

    His/Her name is MusicNFics....I don't know if you caught that. But I did.

    And I don't see what's not to understand.

    It's good to plan it, but I personally didn't have good experiences with it. Some writers pick songs that don't appeal to me at all. So while you can do it, not everyone will click it.

    Cool idea. I've thought of trying something along those lines since 2000 or so, back when it was common to have a midi file playing on a webpage.

    Sure, I'll be happy to give it its own thread (and why I chose it)
