First off, for the fic I'm currently writing, I use ***s to indicate a scene break. However, if I wanted to indicate a flashback, what could I use? Preferrably something that would work on fanfiction.net, since they force me to use the line break there.
Second, I had this idea for a Digimon fanfic. The setting will be a sort of mix-and-match, taking elements from certain season of the anime.
Anyways, you know how usually there's a threat to the Digital World and a group of kids are summoned, given their Digivices and partner Digimon, and have to work together to save it? Well, in this fic, I wanted to have a group of young adults, maybe with someone a little older than that, summoned by the Digimon Sovereign and they are given their equipment and partner Digimon, along with a specific type of energy. With these, instead of working together, they must all travel alone across the Digital World and battle each other in a sort of gladiator contest, until only one person is left standing with all energies collected, earning them the right to challenge this final enemy.
Oh, and the protagonist is at an apparent disadvantage, since the energy he is granted is universally considered to be something that is unable to be properly wielded on its own in combat, and it's hinted that most combatants who were given it in the past died out early in the competition.
What do you think?
