    Probably because I accidentally shot a Stormcloak courier... one time. But I don't have any bounty registered.

    Whatever, I'll have to make due with Falkreath or something.
    You're talking about Skyrim, right? I haven't played the game myself, but I've watched some videos on Youtube (plus doing some research), so I know what you're talking about.

    Yup. I started a new game recently, playing as a Khajiit.

    A question: When something happens in the news, and your story involves similar events, do you delay the episode out of respect?

    I'd say that as a broad term; yes. But it entirely depends on what news it's referring. If it's something heinous, or very terrible news then a definite yes. If something minor or not at all negative, like someone winning an award or the release of a new film, then probably not. But it's best to review public opinion to the news item first. If you're not sure, delay just in case.

    I was asking because I wasn't sure how the new episode of "Journeys of the Red Star" would fly in light of what happened in CT (granted, firearms do not exist in the world of "Journeys of the Red Star", but the plot of that episode does revolve around something just as traumatic--a kidnapping)

    I think a kidnapping is probably far enough from a shooting that you'll be OK.

    Have any of you got an idea of a fic but dropped it eventually?

    I've had a couple so far, like a one-shot involving that the Pokémon world ran out of Pokéballs and trainers discussed what they could do to solve that.

    Another was an idea of a super-hero fanfic (yes, in the Pokémon world) partially inspired by one of LightningTopaz' stories in Live from the Fireside (don't remember the name at the moment).

    I drop so many fics it's not even funny. Both of those sound awesome though. Let me know if you write them.

    Same here. In fact, I often start writing and post their beginnings before dropping them. -_-

    I have started and dropped so many, it's not funny. Usually, I drop fics because I hit a roadblock in the story, but I have dropped a few out of boredom

    Nowadays I mainly drop things because I have too much going on. Back when I was in my first year of university I wrote ridiculous amounts, frequently in tandem.

    I've already started looking at the one-shot to see if I can write something interesting. Might take a while though.

    I've done that a few times too. My brilliant solution was to wait until I'm five chapters in and then start posting.... And then I almost never make it past chapter five. lol

    I do that too! I have the same problem too........

    I find that that only works if you keep writing as if you're posting every week anyway, so you're constantly five chapters ahead rather than eating into your buffer.
