So I was trolling around in the DBZ fandom and suddenly I stopped and I thought, Maaaaan, I remember my dream'fic for this fandom.
You know, that one 'fic you always needed to write. The one you can't forget about. Or two. Or ten. Or twenty. Maybe dream'fics is a better term, but sometimes in older, forgotten/abandoned fandoms, there was just this ONE story that you really wanted to write, to get out there, and you still think about it even if it's been 10 years since you were actually active or known in that fandom.
You know what I'm talking about. You're probably thinking about it right now. SO TELL ME ABOUT IT.
And tell me why you've always wanted to write it. I mean, what's the motivation behind wanting to write it? Is there a certain satisfaction you want to feel? And if someone ELSE wrote it, would that make you just as happy?
So my "dream'fics" are:
Dragonball Z: Mirai/Future!fic. Oh man. I always wanted to write a REAL future'fic. Sure, I wrote one, String of Fate
-- but for the love of God don't read it. It needs edited. I used the wrong "then/than" in there somewhere. UGH. Either way, the reason I felt I needed to write a future!timeline 'fic was because THERE WERE SO MANY. SO MANY UNFINISHED
ONES. And I found that more disappointing than anything, ever. So much potential. Such an interesting playground. I guess the fate of certain characters (coughGohancough) turned away a lot of people, but there's still his life to write about, you know? He fought the Androids for how long
? I felt there just needed to be a complete, satisfying-ending 'fic for that timeline. I would be over the moon if someone ELSE wrote this-- cause it would save me so much time.
Pokémon: You guys will laugh me off of LJ/DW for this one: I used to have this huge, sprawling plot written out in a notebook for a 'fic about a 30-something Ash who actually has cancer, and his last wish is to travel around Kanto on his original journey one last time. So silly. But it had the old gang in it and it was fun to think about. I'll probably never write it but I think about it a lot. I also had a nice outline for a 'fic where sometime in the future I think Misty was married and had quit running the Cerulean City Gym, but tbh I don't remember enough about that one to ever pick it up again.
Harry Potter: The werewolf idea, obviously, where Tonks ends up bitten by a werewolf (who isn't Remus). I might yet do this one but it's not an easy story to work on. P: If someone else wrote this I'd be pissed. MY IDEA BITCHES.
Fire Emblem 7: It's a damn three-way tie between The Novelization, All About Us, and and and Another Heart Calls. Dafuq. I think the novelization wins ONLY because I have sooo much damn headcanon that I want to squeeze it all into ONE FIC and make it COHERENT but I doubt I can do that. Sigh. That said, I also have this awful urge to write a Wallace and Vaida epic-- it's even beating out my ridiculous idea for the Merlinus epic. Shut up you know you'd read a Merlinus epic because it's such a stupid idea.
Fire Emblem 8: I have NEVER told anyone this, I don't think, but I wanted to write a semi-novelization alllllllll from limited 3rd POV...in Lute's perspective. YOU KNOW THAT WOULD BE SUCH A TRIP.
Fire Emblem 9/10: Uhmmm Kitty can attest that I spent many hours outlining Stand
, a Haar/Jill 'fic that I CAN'T REMEMBER IF I STARTED OR NOT. I think there was another one, too, but for the life of me I can't remember what it was about and I'm not sure why. (I am so tired, ugh.)
Rose of Versailles: Say It's Possible. 88,000 words. Written. 10k posted. I am. So lazy. And I think maybe I should review that 'fic and see if it's as bad as I remember it being. It might have had potential. But it was so hard to balance the idea for it between the manga and the anime. Because Oscar is different in the anime than in the manga. The manga has her all YEAH WHERE ARE MY LOWLY SOLDIERS POPS? And the anime has her going NAW I DO WUT I WANT AND I DUN WANT THE MILITARY. (SPEAKING OF ROSE OF VERSAILLES, forcedsimile
, WHERE IS THE REST OF THE OSCAR-WAS-RAISED-AS-A-GIRL FIC?! sob)
And a random assortment:
-I always wanted to write a really great Aoshi/Misao 'fic but I can't seem to accomplish that goal. /fail
-I feel like I should make up for all my shitty InuYasha 'fic by writing something good.
-I am a bad person for never writing Digimon 01/02 'fic despite being a fan. (I EVEN WROTE GILMORE GIRLS FIC. COME THE FUCK ON.)
-The Irresponsible Captain Tylor needs fic. But. I'm always so short on ideas.
-I need to make up for my blunder in the Ranma 1/2 section by writing something good. But someone beat me to the best 'fic in the fandom already. If you want a link I will link it!
-Speaking of making up for incoherent badfic: Dragonball Z.
-SPEAKING OF MAKING UP FOR REALLY SHITTY FIC, TALES OF SYMPHONIA. I admit, Once Upon a Tomato was pretty great, but Take Me Away? Oh my God what a terrible fic. Terrible. Terrible fic. TERRIBLE. FUCKING. TERRIBLE. Oh my God.
also it's not meta month but what the hey.
