Can I get your opinion on these ideas that I had, I can't pick which one to explore on.
Anyways so I have these two ideas that I've been debating on since last week. The first idea takes place in a futuristic world, after a strange meteor shower 10 years before the start of the story more than a quarter of humanity ended up turning into a cross between humans and Pokemon called "Hybrids" these former humans have to live in solitude and flee as they are constantly chased by the forces of the government who want to capture them because of the danger they pose to humanity, in their eyes at least.
The story centers around two main characters, Jessie, a Blaziken hybrid who lost his family during the meteor shower and has been drifting around trying to find a place to live peacefully and Michael a young teenager that has just joined the Hybrid Ensnaring Forces. Michael's mother was killed by Hybrids back when he was still a kid, while Michael himself knows the difference between a good and a bad hybrid and has a very strong code of honor he is unaware of the second personality he has within him, Luce, a ruthless being who wants to capture and kill all hybrids for what they did to their mother and who wants to take over Michael's body completely.
Along with these two the story will incorporate more characters from both sides as well as their own struggle, with Jesse finding out that his sister survived the shower and has become a HEF agent and Michael struggling to stop Luce from taking over his body completely.
The reason I want to do this one is because it'll be my first time trying to go through a "grey" route fic where neither side is completely good or completely evil, the fic itself will be split into it's own fic for each Part of the story and each Part will probably be 20 chapters at its highest with probably 3 of 4 parts.
The second idea is a little simpler. The fic takes place in the real world not too far into the future the first virtual reality game has been made and this game was made using Pokemon as it's core foundation. The fic itself is about a group of people that meet each other in the game and have to go through multiple adventures and encounters, through this they also have to deal with their own problems in real life. The story itself is an ensemble cast story focusing on each one of the members of the group with a plot that develops through a series of multiple arcs as the group ends up finding out that one of their friends has more to do with the secret of the game that they are led to believe.
Much like the games the virtual game has assigned players that fill the role of gym leaders one of the central villains of the fic will be one of the gymleaders who wants to figure out a way to reprogram the game and make it his own play thing. Of course there are bigger baddies lurking in the shadows that are part of the main secrets of this "out of this world" game. Unlike other virtual reality franchise the game itself doesn't give people any sort of abilities or anything so it's pretty much like a second "life"in a way.
The reason I wanna do this is because it'll be my first time doing a fic with an ensemble cast plus I've always liked the concepts of these kind of things cause I was a huge fan of .hack years ago and since this fic was based on an old RP I had I have most of the plot and things figured out
