The Round Table (A collaborative fiction thread)
« on: April 17, 2013, 12:20:29 AM »
Ok The idea behind this thread is to create TM Fanfiction in a collaborative way. in this case interested parties create an open world story and they write a story in alternating chapters (in example I write a chapter, then Mike or say Gab or such would write the next chapter and so on)

this way we can create an interesting continuity together, if anyone is interested in this idea please say so.

Hmm... I'm interested, but I need an idea of what the rules are, if any.  I mean, there might be stuff you wouldn't want to be put in here, and stuff you want put in here in a limited fashion.

Other than that, I got nothing to say right now, I'm afraid.

the only two rules are

the over arching story is something to be discussed and that editorial mandate is how a chapter, one shot, or other events and details become canon within the overall story

Alright.  I just wanted to be sure what the rules were before I did anything.

Wait, hold on, what about crossover stuff?  Is this meant to be only a TM-related story?

Well, presumably everyone needs to be able to write it, which makes crossovers difficult to work. I don't necessarily think offshoot crossovers are a problem, though.

Yeah, I don't think it's a problem in principle, but there's no way we could consistently include cross-over elements in a collaborative fic, and I think having cameos would turn it into a mess. I think it's much better for it to just be a Nasuverse fic.

However, it's possible to write spin-off stories in the universe (either canonical or non-canonical), and I see no reason why you couldn't include cross-overs in those.

I would say crossovers are ok but only in the marvel DC sense of the else worlds continuity.

this means that while the crossover occur they occur and contact only in regards to other crossovers. the main canon doesn't acknowledge the crossovers happening.

Elseworlds is a cross company imprint to contain crossovers between marvel and DC characters

OK, so, what would everyone want to see from this fic?

My interests should be generally obvious, at least initially. I want Sakura to have a decent role and to get saved, be happy etc. Also, if it does have any lemon content (I'm not sure if it will), then some Sakura sex and BDSM stuff would be good....

The main story shouldn't have lemon in it. Canonical instances of sex between the characters is fine if discussed and approved but I think those should be one shots and asides apart from the actual story here.

in my case I think we should start pre tsukhime and pre fate and build a new continuity from the ground up, i'd like to avoid senseless deaths.

Yeah, it definitely makes sense to start before the canon games, it gives us a lot more flexibility.

And, whilst I wouldn't agree that the main story absolutely shouldn't contain lemon, I do agree it shouldn't have a lemon focus, and we shouldn't design it around lemon content.
