People, I need advice for a character arc I'm trying to write for a comic that may or may not be published.
Here's the facts.

Gabriel Ironwood
Age: 19
Parents: Unknown, but Kaiju Safeguard and Research Institute (KSRI) officer David Reynolds is his adoptive father.
Profession: Pilot for KSRI unit MFS-3 Kiryu
Relationship status: dating
S/O: Erin Moone, KSRI Biology dept. agent


I DON'T want him to be a one dimesnional character, and I need him to have some sort of personal struggle that makes him favorable to the reader. I thought about making it about his missing parents, but it seemed too much like Akane Yashiro's character arc in GXMG. I also thought about a more close relationsip with Kiryu as a sentient being, maybe the killing of kaiju that used to be Kiryu's allies leaves a divide between pilot and machine, but I don't know if that's exactly a good idea.
I need help :freak:
Am I still on? Er, well, we now return you to... Whatever it was you were doing....
Idiots.

Depends on what kind of story you want to tell, and the length. I'd skip anything too complicated or reliant on a personal back story. Make his motive something seen in the story. Have him crippled in a fight and make him want vengeance. If he's dating, have his girlfriend have a major role in his life, maybe she's his superior officer or boss or whatever. What's his relationship with his adoptive father like? Dig in, expand, get in his head and his world and then the story ideas should come easier.



Anyways, onto my own questions - would this section be the right place to put my thoughts on a Godzilla cartoon I would love to see and typed a bunch of ideas about?

Always, *always* proofread, typos are Hedorah.
If you discover you have made a typo, *always* correct it.
Trust me.

Godzilla vs Kong: Kong won't die. He might win, he might lose, but he will survive.

Some netiquette:

Is there a better section then?

Not really, but the Post and Pitch Wishlist Godzilla Film Titles and Concepts thread in the General Toho Films section might be slightly more high-visibility

A crazy thought I had with my Extremeverse.

Postby Maverick Centigrade » Mon Feb 24, 2020 5:20 pm

So lately I've been exploring a radical shift in my Extremeverse, mainly...an in universe reason why a most buildings are smaller than most kaiju. It would be an alternate world much like Ace Combat's strangereal. Another element I would be adding is kaiju and humanity having ancient history, like KOTM.

The idea is that millions of years ago a cosmic radiation burst hit the Earth and mutated life, thus creating kaiju all over. Across the years humanity rose and built their cities with knowledge of them, and making smaller buildings. This would eventually pass on into the modern era with buildings sitting at 50 100 meters (though kaiju are just legends at this point). I just wanted to create a world where Godzilla stands taller than any of man's structures.

I just finished my GvABV series and I'm wondering where to go next. To catch you up, Anguirus, Baragon, and Varan fought Godzilla, Varan is fatally wounded and dies later, while Godzilla faints onto the beach. Anguirus and Baragon leave the island and a few days later Godzilla follows suit.

If ya'll have any ideas of where to take the series next I'd be glad to know.

Give some further reasons as to why the events happened the way they did and make sure you got a plan in mind as to what to do with Varan being dead, how does this affect future conflicts?

A bit late but thanks. I decided to tie this fan fic in with my RPG, Godzilla vs The World of Monsters.
