Ideas, Advice and Suggestions

Postby GodzillavsJason » Tue Sep 16, 2014 6:07 pm

I've notice that some people have created idea threads that only serve the purpose on what the author asks for people on what they want them to do. I tend to think of these threads as a waste and clutter up the section so I have decide to put this all in one thread and sticky it. However this will not be restricted to ideas for stories that people may want others' opinions but advice for stories they are working on and suggestions for the section in general.

Suggestions for the section? What I mean by that is similar to what Ernesth proposed with the Box Office with if someone has an idea for the section they may post their idea and gather input from others on if they like it or not. Therefore no one would be putting clutter the whole section even though some people might detest to this thread getting clutter but I think people would rather see one thread cluttered than the whole section. So let me go over some quick ground rules on how this all works out.

Rules

1. You have an idea or need advice than take it here, don't create it on a separate topic unless you are actually making a discussion board for it and actually plan to make a story out of it and not a thread just for ideas and won't even bother going back to. If not than it would be a waste of space that will indeed be either locked or deleted.
2. As above please suggest things (example Box Office) and flesh your suggestions out before you create a thread for it. Gain others' inputs on it before you post it and it turns out to be a bad idea.
3. If there is much talk on your suggestion than you may call a poll for voting, however each voting session lasts a week and another cannot be called upon until that voting period has run it's course.
4. If your suggestion passes the voting session than whoever you suggested it has the honors of posting the thread of it.

If you have any concerns, questions or wish to discuss it than please don't hesitate to tell me.

I am thinking about doing the "Godzilla Vs Clonezilla" Sequel but I'm not sure what kind of monster I should do. I actually started a prototype Prologue chapter which had Godzilla fighting against the antagonist and getting his arse kicked before grandpa Gojira saved him.
Anyone got any ideas?

Also, Trailer thread anyone?

So I recently have been playing with an idea in my mind for the Beginner's section in which that is to give this section their own Emmies. Why? Well I think it would be fun for the beginners to partake in their own emmies and to be fair for them to win instead of having to go up against the big writers. I was also thinking that the beginner's emmies should occur in Fall and Spring as oppose to Summer and Winter for the Veteran's emmies.

What do you guys think?

For the first one, I'll host it... mainly to show how these ones are done. After that they're up for grabs.

If I were you, I would read some fight scenes from stories around here and use them to see how to make a good fight.

My suggestions are TFKA 4 & 5 as those have some good fights and sorry to toot my own horn but check out the Chris Jericho vs Steve Blackman fight from my WWF Attitude Story,

I could use a little advice. I'm still wanting to work on my story, but I'm at a bit of an impasse. On one hand, I would like to introduce the human characters and get the plots working on those. But I'm also torn about even having them, and focusing more on the kaiju. Both sound interesting, and I'm stuck on what direction it should go in.

All I can say is if you do have characters, don't make their story obligatory fodder for the kaiju fights. Their struggle can/should be linked to that of the kaiju.

It's perfectly okay to not even include characters too. You'd have to focus more on developing the kaijus' personalities at that point.

I think I'll be keeping the humans, as I want to continue the plots with them that I've cooked up.

I would say describe what kind of destruction the kaiju is doing, use how their powers effect the whole area and in what way. Plus, if there's human characters then you should also do it in their point of view. Tell us how they see the city their in, collapsing or exploding.

OK, I have an idea for a fanfiction/tv show thing.

It's called SLENDER.

In the pilot, I kinda think it should be like this guy who finds all these photos and newspaper articles about "Slenderman" and he goes to find out. In the first episode, it's in parts. The guy finds a park. When he searches around, he find pages. "GO AWAY", "I DONT SPEAK ENGLISH", "YOU DONT WANT TO SEE WHATS HIDDEN HERE", etc is written on the pages and there is also little doodles of pine trees and one strange one that is a picture of like a faceless child. The an is creeped out and when he sees a figure in the woods, it gets real. In the second episode, I think it should be like when the man runs away and stays inside a little house for the night. When he wakes up, he finds pages written all over his walls. "I SAID GO AWAY", "DONT COME NEAR ME", "I ONLY SPEAK STATIC", "I KIDNAP CHILDREN", etc was written on the pages. When the man tried to get up and leave, he couldn't move. He tried again. Nope. Slenderman appeared in the room, and the man stares at him for too long. He then dies. The title finally comes up, and then it leaves for the next episode.

Any thoughts?
Totally not a troublemaker.

^ I think "I KIDNAP CHILDREN" and "I DONT SPEAK ENGLISH" are kinda bad...probably would remove both of those and make different pages. Furthermore, there should be a second character, someone he meets in the second episode. There has to be some resolution to his character so he doesn't just die and that's that. Y'know?

But it could work.
