I'm thinking about making a series of writing guides, though I'm not sure if anyone would read them. Thoughts?

Well, what would they be about? Characters? Genres?

Part 1: The tools of writing
Part 2: Writing Styles
Part 3: Conflicts
Part 4: Characters
Part 5: Actions and Reactions

Something like that, not a final outline there beyond part 2. Definitely would be doing parts 1 and 2 as they are listed.

So I'm kinda just brainstorming, mostly because I've noticed the FF section is comatose at the moment, but do we still do like, writing competitions/ challenges? I was thinking maybe once everyone has a bit more freetime (I finish school in December, finally), there could be a monster match challenge or something? Basically, when people sign up they're given two (or more) random Toho monsters to work with and a location, and they have to write a match on it, challenging people to write with characters they're not used to, and breathing maybe a bit of life into the section once more. IDK, just brainstorming.

Then again, everyone might just be busy with school atm, which I fully understand :lol:

@MothraRocks: YOOOOOOOO, it's been a while bud! Nice to see you back.

Regarding your suggestion: I think it's a good idea, god knows we could use some activity around here.

So, you can’t undo the past, but you can choose your own future, and if you want to be strong... you have to fight for it and find out in your life what’s worth fighting for.

Hm. I can't say that I've seen any real contests since I've started writing here, but I would sure be down for that kind of a deal. Been awhile since there's been a whole lot of activity on here.

I'd be super down for it. College is sort of kicking my ass right now but i'm sure if it was scheduled for some time after the average Christmas beak it would work for anyone who wanted to get involved.

I been having writer's block since 2013. Everything I write now is sloppy, I'll admit that. I think my problem is I can come up with a great idea but I get to excited about the scenes I wanna write. Which ends up making me lose interest and the execution is crap.

Now that I'm done using you as group therapy...

I been thinking about just finding someone to roleplay with it about something story driven. Maybe it'll help my creative muscles (If I still have any) Just pm me. It can be like 1 Am and I'll respond.

Not sure if I already brought this up but I have an idea for a Godzilla fanfic. It’s basically the Godzilla equivalent of Logan and it is set in the original Showa continuity where 30 years have passed since the events of Destroy all Monsters and like Wolverine in the aforementioned film, Godzilla himself is starting to become more old and weary as time passes. After 30 years, very little kaju activity has taken place and the world has advanced significantly in terms of technology following the Killak war, most notably thriving Lunar colonies. Everything is at peace, until all hell breaks loose on a global scale when The Black Hole aliens launch a third invasion of Earth.

That’s really all I have in terms of the overall story without spoiling anything. Anyways, how is this for a suggestion?

Well, I'm done with college for the semester, so I should get back to writing during the interim. I'm currently towards the end of the sixth chapter of a work in progress novel that I have been stuck on for a long time. Once I get the next couple of chapters completed, the rest of the story should be a piece of cake.

I've tried writing Godzilla fanfics in the past, but I haven't been able to finish one to my satisfaction, let alone develop a good start. The thing about me is that I try to figure out the story in my mind as I go along, a la Stephen King. I'm averse to outlining, because I feel like I'm putting limitations on myself. It's too restrictive, if you ask me. Also, I'm so focused on developing a body of original writing that I feel fanfiction may not be for me. At the same time, though, I feel somewhat obligated to write a fanfic as a genuine love letter to a franchise that has had such a profound impact on me since childhood.

If I were to take the plunge and go forward with this endeavor, either on my own or in collaboration with my dear friend KaijuX, there are several questions that I need to ask myself.

  • Why am I doing this? Why should this exist?
  • What do I want to accomplish that hasn't been done before?
  • What direction should I take? What tone should I give the work?
  • Do I create something completely original or stick to the tried and true?
  • What is the scope of the story? Will it be a short piece or an epic?

Idea: terrorist Mechagodzilla

Postby Baranguirus » Sat Dec 30, 2017 5:22 pm

I've recently had an interesting idea. It seems to me that quite a few people, including me, miss the villainous Mechagodzilla under alien control, like he was back in 1974/5.
However, the more recent film have the story of Mechagodzilla being built by humans to combat the true monster; a neat idea, undoubtedly, but some feel like it's become a bit of a crutch, limiting the robot's possibilities. However, I've come up with two hypothetical storylines in which Mechagodzilla is built by humans, but goes on a quest to destroy him.

Plot 1:
The Japanese military builds a new Mechagodzilla, but a terrorist organization manages to hijack the Mecha, and turns it against the people in a destructive rampage.

Plot 2:
A shady, semi-legal corporation, offers to build a Mechagodzilla for the Japanese government, in exchange for their funding. However, once the mech is completed, this organization, now declaring their true intentions, turns this new super-weapon against their previous customers.

So, do you think these are interesting ideas, or just a bunch of scrap metal? Please, voice your opinions! :)

Yeah, Mechagodzilla would be a far better asset to have than Ebirah... :?

TK: the movie

Idea courtesy of SpaceG.

Regardless of what my psychologist says, I say one of these needs to be made. How would you want it to be done? What are your story/script ideas?

Medieval or modern movie where different groups/factions of people who believe in the same thing but from different view points, come together to build a literal kingdom.

Damn it, Im not good at these story telling things anymore, used to write but that was a good decade and a half ago.

Modern times, sarcastic comedy not too much as to not over saturate it, action adventure, dark humor as well. I would say great characters but you bastards are real "characters" enough :lol: . We do need females as this movie would be a real sausage fest. Great plot that interconnects all of us in some form.

I dont know what my role would be.......?

Also, we have to get Morgan Freeman as the narrator.

And only director I will work for is Eabaker.

Actually story wise it would center on a director that has grown weary of being called perfect. He has so many awards and accolades that he has grown tired of big budget movies and as he has accomplished everything he sets out to create a "horrible" movie. He sits in his trophy room and watches his first film as a student and comes to the conclusion that it never was about the awards but the process and the journey. He sets out to "ruin" his image by finding random people from across the country....and in comes the mess of characters that is us :lol: .

I dont know.......Maybe I can get back to my writing roots that I once had when I was younger.

You can have JL as your wife but please for the love of God, can we have a movie without the Rock in it? I love the guy but C'mon. The dudes everywhere....I once took a #2 and the guy busted through my bathroom door and demanded I rewipe..... he's everywhere I tells you.
