hey peoples....


if you dont know me yet, thats ok, if youve read my crap and wanna be a troll, be my guest, if you want to lose the game, you already have.

ever since episode(or w/e) 20 or 15 of digimon eternities, ive been having idea block, and im trying not to get into rps do to my internet situation.

i was going to do a story twisting Dungeons & Dragons 3.5 with Digimon World(ONE)...but that failed...

of course digimon isnt my only interest, but ill end up reading if the writings have to be about digimon or not when i have something else.

by the way...if you dont know what the game is...pm me or someone who knows.

but ill warn you, you cant stop playing, and you will literally never win.


Edit #1:
sooo...new day, decided to add on, i brought into my head several ideas for my next writing, and i realize that i do infact love the old stuff in my gaming life...
i could start up a pokemon story, naruto story(not shippuden...technically not even naruto...), zoids story, or the story of a character thats been with me for a loooong time, and its not kyo(even though hes not really myn...i just tend to use him more in digimon because hes more interesting to hear about...sometimes.)

anyway, then i realized i cant write a story, or am not patient enough using the wii

no, i finished a story on the wii, i wrote most on a computer...and it was my only internet source... so yeah

update:
hey guys, i thought i may as well put this here too, im putting together a pen and paper zombie apocalypse survival game called Dead Men Walking, i might post more about it, i already have a bit done, but i tend to be lazy, especially considering im using paper and a pencil to make the game.

update2: went dead for a while...im thinking of writing a new story...the only question is...which one?

sooooooo.

First off: I apologize for double posting in advance if that's bad here. but i know no one'll check this if i just edit

now then...I've updated my game...

and decided the RP area hates me...but that's OK

if I'm not here, I'm somewhere trying to campaign on D&D.

also, if you haven't read it, read The Chronicles, and tell me what you think(but please, don't correct my spelling, i do that enough between myself and spellcheck...which I don't use...

anyway...You may have also noticed new eggs invading my Sig every week...or two if ones lucky. I implore you, don't leave them unloved...

Also. being myself, I'm open to comments, questions, trash talk, trolling, and suggestions on my stories.

also one note: no ones asked me, so i assume no one cares, but the 6k views say otherwise so ill tell you a secret about Digimon Eternities: that episode wasn't supposed to be the end.

edit: I spell checked out of boredom, and I wonder:
This is a loosly Digimon-based Forum, why in the world is the word Digimon not in the Spell Checkers dictionary?

Looks like you hadn't posted in this topic for quite a bit...

Ah, I fell out of Dragon Cave myself. I've quite a few dragons, with one of them being retired, but I honestly don't keep track anymore. Of course, that caused them to lose their names, names which I had planned to use for a fic of mine... :mad:

i haven't posted here in a while because Im lazy, forget stuff, and figured it got dropped to page 12 or something. also i havent had much to say.

most part right now im filling a giant gap inbetween Bloody being 11 and arriving at Kotetsu's Land, and Bloody being 21 and leaving to find this particular Stone.
its going...not well...but Its good that I have these really not important characters in my story...not that they're going to die or anything >.> <.<

on a new note: i have too much free time, and yet none of it has been spent trying to think up plot to my story...
also, is anyone at all curious who the mysterious stranger was that appeared in my last update?

actually....does anyone even have a question for me about the chronicles?

You seem awfully self conscious about your writing; why are you so anxious about it?

im paranoid. when digimon eternities stopped getting responses, just more views, i mean it was nice...but i started to fall back on the boring repetitiveness of it. of course at this point chronicle 2 part 2 is fairly repetitive, but it and part 3 are designated filler before Bloody became king, so its ok. because i have no ideas, because im getting no criticism.

thats the reason why i stopped digimon eternities at 30 episodes. i couldnt handle that for the next 120 or so times id write something, the next 20 were generally filler before the big fight, then the next 50 were going to be the third kings story, and then the last 50 were going to be the d-races, and the finale. but, i looked at my 29th episode and said 'i vant keep doing this, i need inspiration, and no one is giving me any thoughts on it, im done'
its just, for the most part, i like to hear comments about my work, because it helps my work become better, and not cardboard pudding.
i also dont like people talking about me behind my back, anything they have to say can be done to my face. Because then, if i really dont like it, i have the opportunity, and reason to break their nose....which, i promise ill try not to do...much.

[/quote]I think self-consciousness in your own writing isn't necessarily bad. And the way BloodyM's been concerned with it seems to me like he's an inexperienced writer (either that, or terribly vain).

@ BloodyM: Don't worry about your views and responses so much. Many times people are too lazy to bother posting reviews, or they just skim over content quickly and move on to something else. I hate to be blunt, and I don't want to lower your self-esteem, but if your stories are good enough you'll naturally get reviews; if not, people won't bother. Your lack of effort or dedication shows through a lot in writing, so if you get uninterested, so will readers--and the cycle continues such.

Just cause you don't have criticism doesn't mean you shouldn't have ideas. Just go with what you want to write and do it. If you're writing only to look good or be popular online (lolwut), then you shouldn't have even started. If you really want to get better, request a beta reader and publish the story on a site with more traffic, like ff.net.

ah. yknow. i could be vain. but im also new-ish to writing my stories. for example. Ive told out the chronicles a couple hundred times, and scrapped up a one day random campaign based off two parts of the story.

i guess...the problem is. i have my story mapped out, because its a giant backstory to a universe and a character i developed. Digimon eternities was...to be honest: me being bored and having nothing to do, and no one to do it with. it was, more or less, the general spawning of several thousand rps i did with a friend, that allowed me to grow the characters fully in concept. unfortuneatly, it also dropped out of digimon and into weird fantasy pretty quickly...

but maybe im just bad at filling in my giant story gaps. however, i feel there needs to be some depth to my backstory before i go ahead and say 'and then bloody was 21, sailing to find the ancient stone that would be his proof of kingship'. because that, in my mind leaves a giant question: what in the world happened in those ten years?

however, i somewhat dont agree, i cant think that around 6000 views, people still 'skimmed' digimon eternities. but i still felt bad when i paused every now and then to allow questions, comments, suggestions, and criticisms and id get back on to type the next part, and nothing. but a bunch more views.
and before anyone says I might be crazy: your right. I am absolutely crazy. it happens, i mean, i can guarentee no one really cares if i skip those ten years, or if i stop that chronicle when bloody has finished only part of his quest, and start on a new one, to elaborate more on the very confusing story im weaving. infact, i probably could, at the end, or some point within, make a random rp about the chronicles, dating a specific area of it, and people wouldnt know what i was talking about, because everyone skimmed through the story, and didnt really pay attention, or care.

I have no ideas left to fill in holes in my story. I am idealess, I, infact only am typing the part i am now, where im typing it, because, to be frank, i dont need more sites to keep track of.
plus, i like wtw. If it werent for the fact that i apperently kill rps, id be in more of them. I like writing, and drawing, and it mostly dissapoints me that i cant do much, because im on a wii. If i had a computer, i'd be in Chronicle 2 Part 5, or better, Chronicle 4 by now, and my thumb wouldnt be as sore, granted id also be making sprites and coding a byond game, so i probably wouldnt be on wtw, or dragcave, or myth-weavers, or any of my usual sites....minus three... because id be playing mmos, and other stuff. Its sad, but this is what ive got, and although i want to share my stories with the people here, i just find it...annoying that either no one cares, or my story isnt interesting enough for them to comment about it

I want to be a novelist. I'm always writing stories if I'm not RPing. I have three projects in progress. One is about a merpeople colony and incomplete around 50,000 words. The next is about a young vampire whose head is wanted by religious zealots, and is incomplete at 60,000 words. The last, about a young gay boy who attempts suicide (The character was born on this site!), and is incomplete at 90,000 words. Because I want to be published, I generally only post them on my own forum so that they are hidden to guests. I too ask for feedback and vicious critique, but only one person really takes the time to give critique. One other person posts comments ssometimes. And that's about it, even though I know Ove asked a lot of people to help me out.

That's the big issue, really. Not everyone has faith in their own ability to critique, not everyone even wants to do it. As a writer I know how frustrating it is, but you need to write for yourself, not for the feedback of others, or else you'll stay trapped in the cycle of 'meh no one likes this' forever, even though it's not necessarily true.

There's nothing wrong with having a story mapped out, but I'll be honest and advise against it too much. Is a pitfall. I planned out Morning Star, and what happened, it went from being complete at 50k to still being a WIP at 90k. The story I'd planned out ended up not being the story my character wanted to tell.

As for filler--don't do it. It's called filler for a reason! If people don't like it in anime (young hunters haters) why would they like it in writing?

im a complicated person. and, to the least, my 'filler' isnt some episode filled with flashbacks, or them covering the hidden lives of unimportant characters. this is an actually relevant part of my story that theres a big gap in. and i dont feel like jumping the ten years just so i can get to the part i have.
my story is 'more-or-less' mapped out, parts here and there, its a loooong story, about a complicated universe.

I, personally dont have a lot of stories, most were running spinoffs with friends, but all of them had one character in common. Bloody. Hes been a Ninja leader with powers of manipulation and blood, hes been a Dragoon of the Midnight Moon, hes been a Duelist, who to be honest, sucked. Hes been a Spartan, trying to fight the covenant and the flood. Hes been a Master of the Keyblade, and a Masterful Black Knight of two swords. Hes even been a Champion of a Pokemon league.
He, is more or less my only work. Hes been many things, some of which i dont remember, but hes been one more thing...hes been the one guy who could make me try and achieve what i want. He has, to a blunt point, been to hell and back with me.

I can't forget him, and, when i think about it, to everyone else, hes just a name, in a story that doesn't matter.
I'm not trying to write on feedback, but i want the feedback, so maybe i can improve how i write, how i tell the story, and maybe explain some things as i go. I, however, write what has been told. To no one but a empty room. The tales of a man, and the person who made him, and who he made.

id love to get published. but i think theres more thoughts of not doing that. because, then, if i dont get something before hand, i release this book that barely anyone reads, that people pass up on their skim through a library. Something people give a chance to and find out its horrible, and leave the book to burn.



and, just so you know, i am, infact a crazy, weird person, and i am very self critical, i observe things too much, I overthink things, and Im a perfectionist with OCD, ADD, & a hint of dislexia every now and then.

If it's relevant to the story, by definition, it's not filler.

And you were the one who said you didn't see much point in writing more chapters because you weren't getting feedback.

thats the difference between digimon eternities and the chronicles. in digimon, i was writing it, mostly because this is majoritly a digimon forum. i had good portions mapped out in the future, but most of it was a blur, and when i personally read through the last few chapters i wrote where the characters were solo...i didnt like them, and i couldnt picture 111 or so episodes of digimon-related babbling exactly like it. which is why i dropped the story. but, on that note, i also at least layed it down with a final episode, and didnt leave it at an annoying cliffhanger.

on a further note, i cant guesstimate how much of this story is...ready for written words, as its mainly the big picture, with not a lot of small details put in. theres story, and plenty of it, but someone, like me for example, will notice the small gaps in timr that i forgot about.

on another note, this brings further confusion as of far we have two parts of a story, that, as of yet, have no connecting peices to them except a character or two.

anyway. Im going to finish CH2P2, and move into CH2P3. i decided to break 'the path' into two parts, seeing what i had, i also, on a somewhat insanity based drive, want to break into the second page before Bloody....opps, almost leaked a spoiler :p

Probably best to split them into two stories rather than two parts. The first can be a novella. The second can be the novel.

The early years as the novella. The later years, after the drastic time skip, as the novel.

oh....well, i could that...but, i have already gotten the trials down...and lets see...a year of training at each, from 11....he should be 20 by the time he finishes his training, and leaves for the island, which will bring him to the about right age for the rest of the story.
which is where some partial break in the chronicle will end. due to the fact that, as many people might not know, theres a lot of bits of story i want to go back through. some of it will be much shorter 'collection' of stories, due to what part of my timeline they take part in. ultimately, I want everyone to be kind of confused as the stories form a whole plot, and in general, a universe...so to speak, but never do they appear as such a whole story, if you don't know every piece, and what the puzzle looks like.

this also represents my actual story process, parts were always 'present' but i always changed which time is present. up to a resolved story, filled with less and less sense.
