    I'm more of a soccer fan myself actually xD though my dad's a big baseball nut.

    I love all sports. I played soccer and basketball growing up, but love watching football on T.V.

    In other news, I have hit a snag in my fic. I'm only on the first chapter, but I'm determined to keep going!

    Just out of curiosity, do we have a fanfic trailer thread here? Would anyone like to see one to promote upcoming work?

    UPDATE: The last one is two years old--anyone want another?

    Promoting upcoming work sounds fine to me, though how would you do it in a trailer format?

    It's very difficult honestly, I mean basically it's as if you're describing things that would happen in your fic as if it was a trailer for a movie.

    So I've been working on a list for fics to read, I'm trying to get back into reading as a whole, Kello I actually want to give your Luigi fic a look xD I was always interested in the poor green fellow.

    Oh, I see. I prefer just giving little sneak peeks, honestly. For example, in the next chapter for my Zelda fic, Kelli will find two special items in the dungeon she's exploring instead of just one. Though, in order for her to actually obtain the second item, she needs to come back with Link, whom is still recovering from nearly fatal injuries.

    And great, I hope you enjoy Super Luigi! I don't get chapters for this one out very fast because I haven't had much motivation to lately, but I should get more once Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon is out. ^^

    Trailers is an interesting idea. There's probably a specific art to mastering that as well!! I guess it's a little like what a blurb would be bit instead you could script it like a video format... ?

    Oh, yes, please. That would be great, since I have never seen such a thing before and am interested in seeing it. :)

    Okay, I'll put the trailer in a quote:

    "The Heroes of Fire, Ice, and Lightning" trailer 1, take 1!

    (We see Ash, Misty, and Brock (in their classic Kanto clothes), asleep in a black void, presumably a dark living room.)

    Male announcer: As night falls, three heroes sleep...but little do they know...

    (Ash stirs a bit as a dream balloon forms, depicting him in yellow martial artist's garb, purple and gold knuckles on his hands, and a sword at his side, delivering a lightning tinged punch to some black clad ninjas.)

    Male announcer: They are about to embark on their greatest adventure yet...

    (Another dream balloon forms as Misty changes position. The dream depicts her in a long blue robe that looks similar to a ninja's garb and a hood with a veil that covers most of her face, slashing down a mob of bandits as residents of a Chinese-esque city look on in awe)

    Male announcer: In their dreams.

    (As Brock's dream balloon forms, Ash's and Misty's dreamsonas meet his dreamsona--who wears a red tunic with black trim with a cape to match, black leggings, and shoes--in a forest somewhere in the dream world)

    Male announcer: Together, the three of them will race to save an exotic land known only in their dreams...

    (We see scenes of the Trio's dreamsonas fighting shadowed ninja-like beings using swords, bows, fists, and even instruments!)

    Male announcer: Evil will come to learn not to disturb the harmony of fire, ice and lightning...

    (The Trio's dreamsonas begin charging a massive ball of red, blue, and yellow energy...)

    Male announcer: Lest these titans wreak destruction upon the world in which they clash.

    (...which destroys a black castle in the distance. The scene of the Trio sleeping fades out, but on the black screen, a lightning spark spells the words "COMING SOON")

    Oh, I see now! That doesn't look too hard at all, if you ask me. It looks interesting too. :o

    Nice trailer! I wish I could do things well like that.

    Do you guys/gals listen to music or watch TV when you write or do you need silence?

    It kind of depends. Normally, I couldn't write and watch something at the same time, but when I do watch something, it motivates me. As for music, it doesn't motivate me as much as watching something does, but it does help a little once in awhile.

    I can do both as well, and like Kelleo said, it actually depends on my mood or the atmosphere as I write that determines what I need! Either way, it gets results and I guess that's the best bit about writing.

    I have music on while I'm working--and I've had whole episodes inspired by songs
