    Default Two Things...

    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?

    Personally I would just use the same and make it clear it is a flashback through the content.

    Sounds like a cool idea, I would definitely read it. (Although I only watched the first two series of Digimon so I wouldn't know much beyond that.)

    Also, you'd have to make sure each character was individually awesome but that's obvious, I suppose. Would be interesting to see how willing they are to fight one another. Perhaps the protagonist would end up teaming up with someone else? (How soon would thoughts of betrayal start creeping into his head? Perhaps he would be betrayed? Perhaps they have to fight each other at the end - although that seems a bit cliché.)

    Hmm...well, alright. I guess "show, don't tell" applies here, too?

    Hee hee, well, at least I have one willing reader.

    I'm well aware. After all, it'd be boring if only, say, four Digidestined had any depth at all, right? Of course, given that I want to be known for having psychological themes and interpersonal relationships driving conflict in my writing, well...perhaps they may be more willing to fight each other than they seem?

    Indeed, he would probably have to end up teaming up with someone else. What I have in mind, though, is for him to not have any reason to feel thoughts of betrayal...for the wrong reasons.

    However, his disadvantage is only a perceived one. He can fight well on his own, but due to the nature of how these energies are chosen for their wielders, well...everyone thinks he's got the short end of the stick. And working around this alleged hinderance may or may not allow him to keep his good nature.

    Sounds like you have this planned out enough for it to be excellent. Could you tag me in it when you post?

    Absolutely. Same goes for anyone else who makes a request.
