I did this once.

Too bad I have no story prepared. I guess I could try getting out two thousand words a day on Euthanasia story...but those updates would kill people.

No, never. First time too.

The story is about the world in the future after an event ( I hope it was explained in some logical way) that caused changes too happen. In a more vague style, it focuses on two men who end up taking a job, forced to work together to investigate and try to stop an event that is supposed to be on the level or more as it was 250 years ago, which had killed most of the population. The main characters are Umbra and Orsus. Each having their own special way of attacking, technology completely regressed on many but a few. Only real fast transportation being a train that connects between city too city.

It's called Heaven's Gate.

Awesome. You're doing pretty well too.

Orsus is an aweseom name. What do you mean by technology 'completely regressed on many?'  Is this a dystopia/post-apocalyptic world? If so then tooooo awesome. Love dystopias

@ Austa really? When? Which story was this? Haha I would definitely like to look at those posts, but honestly my laziness could get the better of me. All in all though better a halfbaked project than one you've only kept in your head.

You know... I have always had issues explaining it well. For one, some form of technology having a communication device (not like cellphones though) no cars, guns if anything are a massive rarity, TC screens do exist for for certain things.

I guess if you know Bleach, or Naruto, that is one way to look at it were it is a mixed of timelines. I wanted to avoid things that make fights boring, like "Bam, I shot you" or making the adventure small because of the car.

This was a story called Half-Evil and it was about a girl who is killed in a bus ride only to wake up at a school and find out that she is destined to learn to become a succubus along with other demons in their professions. That's the cliffnotes version of it anyways. I finished the story, but could never upload it as it was in notebooks and I had no internet at the time.

Mein Gott you totally wrote the story by hand.

Muchos respectas. I still haven't managed to try that out. Wow.

@ Shikso Ah that. Well just look at Dragonball. It looked like a science fiction at a point, but nobody remembers that part. So you could totally add technology and fantastical events and let the reader decide which is more memorable .

I wrote a lot in high school. I'm trying to get back into it.


I filled seven notebooks. But they're all lost now...

Oh I know how you feel. -.-

@Lego

True, very true. I do have some involved, steam punk here, maybe a small hint of 'magic' there, guns and tech here for the mega rich. I even have it so no real government exist other then in the cities which are as popular in how many as the middle ages had places for people. Then you have a crime organization that acts like one, having a power of it's own. First chapter spoke 3rd person, explaining the history and up to the current point, then as it moves from that to a cliff hanger, chapter two begins in first person with one of the main characters, then the third would be a POV for Orsus. To give light on both characters.

Cool. It seems weird, but cool. What's important is that you keep on writing no matter what. Don't let Inner Editor-san get a chance to look at you work.
