    I hadn't been paying much attention to Impermanence, but that was really cool. :O

    Ugh, why did my first bit of story ever have to end up on the bottom of a page? Anyways, check out the bottom of the previous page. It's the start of my modest little fanfic.

    This is awesome. Don't stop writing.

    Nigma, I only skimmed yours because I don't particularly enjoy OC fics. Nonetheless, your writing seems competent and the style is quite unique.

    Haha. It's hard to write about popular music in a future fic. Anachronisms!!!!!!!! Ignore them.

    Haha, Nigma. Like a darker-and-edgier version of Homestuck. Nicely written, and morbid enough to attract my attention. Wonder what you'll do with it.

    Great work, as usual. Seeing all these AUs is going to be fun. Is pirate world next? I hope pirate world is next.

    Anyways, I decided to have a go at this "fan fiction" thing all the cool kids are talking about.

    A Cautionary Tale
    Mr. Nigma, I'm hoping to see more out of this. You've gotten off to a good start.

    Also, if you look at your general settings (Edit Profile -> General Settings) and scroll all the way to the bottom, you'll see that you actually have your choice between three different editors for your reply. You're probably using the Basic Editor right now - I know because I had the same problem until I fixed it. The Standard Editor is what we're all used to from the old forums.

    EDIT: AUGH, sorry breccia! I missed your fic when I was multiquoting. Anyway, it's great too! The music was an excellent backdrop for the story, and I like Dave's little version of the tortured artiste mentality.

    Re: MSPA fan fiction 2

    Everyone above me is awesome, just throwing that out there.

    I wrote this because I enjoy second-person Dave, and angst, and drunken PTSD. And because sleep is for pussies.



    Originally the story ended there, but if you want here's a sequel hook because I can never stop writing shippy fluff.



    Completely unedited, just written straight from my brain at four in the morning. So critique away.

    Okay, the writing isn't bad in anyway. But namedropping every single song you mention offhand is frankly just masturbatory. It sours the whole piece.

    Think of it like Chekhov's gun, Chekhov's links, do they serve any purpose to the story? No? Then they do not have a purpose.

    Some of the "name drops" are pretty tongue-in-cheek (John has bad taste) and the fic only came about because of the song it's titled after. If it came off as self-indulgent then that sucks, because that wasn't my goal. It started off just as the files that they were sending each other (if it was a pesterlog it would have a link) but I just kept going because there were other songs I felt like including. I just went for something different -- It seemed fitting to try and make a Dave fic musical. It's definitely not something I'm going to use in any other writing!

    Alright, I get what you were going for, and the writing is good, much better than I could do (then again, I can only write things that are clinical even for police reports). I kinda snapped at it because I was in a bad mood from doing a bunch of ethics case studies.

    I quite liked it! Seems to me if you're going to write a story in a non-traditional medium you might as well take advantage of it from time to time. Hypertextuality, ladies and gents, it's the evolution of storytelling!

    Go to your settings, find General Settings, and where it says Message Editor Interface, change the tab to standard.

    Re: MSPA fan fiction 2

    @NorthernVehemence: Thanks! And um, sorry for stepping on what seems like a pet peeve. There's going to be plenty of development of the other kids and how they've coped as well, Dave is just a fun POV character so I started with him.

    @Tenebrais: *feels loved*

    More on the way!

    Well, if I was going to hazard a guess...



    (also I feel kind of evil for asking this, but did you not see "Plan B" or could you not think of anything to say about it?)

    You could always have, say, Rose falling in love with Kanaya. Then getting deeply depressed because back on Earth, the woman she loves has been dead for billions of years.

    Re: MSPA fan fiction 2

    Rose/Kanaya is the only Rose pairing I can really read or write. Dave is sort of her brother and probably also her moirail, John is a legitimate romantic option if his dad and Rose's mom weren't clearly in love, making John sort of her half-brother, and of all the pairings between the chums, Jade/Rose is probably the least probable. (We never really get a good feel on how those two feel about each other. They've talked, but not as much as any other two chums.)

    And even Rose/Kanaya feels more like it should be Kanaya pursuing it, since she's the one who likes girls and idolizes the Tentacle Therapist.

    Well now I kind of want to write some Rose/Kanaya fic. But I also need to get my rear in gear and finish the fic I'm already working on. I am conflicted!

    Also, that fic with DD was great! He's one of my favorite characters; it's cool to read something from his perspective.

    No harm in taking time out to write something different. Hell, I have four ongoing fics on the burner right now.

    Does anyone else have as many fanfics in the fire as I have?
    You doubt it.

    Nope. They're not biologically related and they weren't raised as siblings, so there's no reason not to have them together. (At least, that's my justification for OOH SHINY WEDDING BELLS 8D)

    I AM SARASVATI AND I APPROVE OF THIS FLOOD OF DAVE/JADE

    am I the biggest fangirl? hell fucking yes I am.

    VR: okay I loved Impermanence before, but now that it has like a structure and a plot I love it even more. Jade being sweet and adorable and Dave just sort of falling apart at the seams when he thinks she's dead ahhhh man that's some good shipping. This is by far the fic of yours that I most look forward to you writing!

    breccia: okay breccia. breccia. i have a very important thing to say. breccia. are you listening. it is the most important thing.

    marry me. please.

    this was so incredible. Dave just kind of holding himself together (sort of) and Rose being helpful in her clinical way and John being such a huge dork and his best friend forever and Jade just being sweet and sad and patient and waiting for Dave to get his shit together. so simple but everything comes through so clear and augh 3

    and I am a HUGE audiophile so I genuinely loved the addition of a soundtrack to back this piece, and I think you handled the concept wonderfully. it was very unintrusive, and optional in the best way, because you don't lose anything if you decide not to listen to the music. I listened to it though and found it so fitting (and clapped my hands at French music, literally the first time in my life that speaking French has come in handy). The whole thing was pieced together like a song meme, only instead of a set amount of clips and scenarios to a set amount of songs, it was one flowing narrative. very clever.

    raequiem: okay well I love it basically anytime Dave just kind of falls apart (so surprising right??) so yeah I love the hell out of this fic. I enjoyed the standard fanon of Dave feeling the flow of time actually being deeply distressing. I also love Jade tracking him down and being the one to get all fussy mother bear on him in a "dave strider you get your shit together right now" kind of way. so. good.

    I missed a bunch of stuff but I'm going to try to catch up on it and comment like a madwoman over on AO3 because I adore all of you guys I'm serious

    it also deeply depresses me that I don't have anything finished to give to the brand new fic thread, so instead, have a piece of an unfinished one. I am so sorry.
