Ok, there's a pretty interesting fan fic community going here, which I've tried, so far not too succesfully, tried to weasel into. I've contributed to the Neverending story a bit, which is interesting, though that's more an original thing (shared by a few of us, and I intend to continue on it), and I, many moons ago, attempted to write a fanfic where I reinvented "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen". Naturally, as I've only read the stories of a few of the characters I included, and it was my first try, it didn't go particularly smoothly, and is still unfinished. The reason is simply that it was too ambitious for me, and I kind of lost the spark I had for it. It was supposed to much more action oriented, more fun, and much shorter. It's drawing to a close, thankfully, and I will sometime soon enough get too that, but right now I need to reinvigorate my creativity with something else I've thrown around in my head. It's like this: I've wanted to take the story of the X-Men, and pretty much redo it. Go back and take certain characters (basically, the ones I like), and create a new history of the team. I want feedback and advice as I do this, to keep it good and keep it interesting. I also promise not to write in tiny little passages like in my "LOEG" story, which I promise will be finished eventually. And if you're wondering, the basic premise (which I mentioned in a thread called 'write me an X') is that Xavier, restless after the original five members graduate, gathers several new students to train, with Iceman as an experienced X-Man to lead them. Bear in mind that, for the sake of originality, aspects of people's stories and personalities will be altered to fit the story. I'll start on it either later tonight or tomorrow.
