    Oh wow, I disappear for awhile only to come back to see new people adding amazing stuff here. This is awesome, need to get off my butt and continue the Karkat Gang fic I've got going and my collab with Frosted. I've been putting everything off recently and I want to apologize for that.

    Re: TROLL!COPS: The AU

    Hi, TROLL!COPS forum! I'm new to the MSPAF, and the TROLL!COPS idea is one of the cheesiest, most awesome things I've laid eyes on yet. My mediocre writing skills are itching to write up a short story for this AU, so before I hop to, I must ask:

    Are there rules or guidelines for contribution? (e.g. how tightly should I constrain the story to the backdrop in the OP?)

    Are there any highly recommended fics to read to get a feel for how to treat these characters and what kind of mood the short should have?

    Are there any questions I missed?

    Thanks!

    Re: TROLL!COPS: The AU

    There are basically no concrete rules.
    However, the mostly-accepted canons would be Wigmund's fics and the deviantart RP.
    The only character that acts different than they do in Homestuck would be Tavros/Mr.Pupa. And there's also the fan-character Maggie.
    I would recommend constraining it to the characters keeping the jobs/roles they have, but you can pretty much do what you want with interpersonal stuff.
    I would say that the most important fics to read are not the ones that offer their own interpretation of the character but the ones that explain the general workings of the city.

    Re: TROLL!COPS: The AU

    Well the Sisters canon is getting pretty awesome too and becoming a pretty solid alternate canon. ^^
    Yes.

    Re: TROLL!COPS: The AU

    @Huanir- as CD said, there are not really any concrete canons. c: Just use the things you like, and add your own stuff into it, if you want to. (After all, that's what I did with Sisters. And I plan on adding more of my own idea's. That's the wonderful thing with this AU, you can give or take any canon you want. )

    @Gingerale- Just... wow. The fact people like Sister's so much is amazing! Thank you so much guys! And I am hoping on finishing the 3rd part this week. So look forward to it. :3

    Re: TROLL!COPS: The AU

    Just to confirm, all characters in that fic are OCs, right? Besides that, I like it! The character is interesting, and I like the details you put in. I'll be waiting for more. And maybe I'll get back to writing some on my own, while I'm waiting.

    I guess you could imagine if you wanted that sollux and terezi are involved because cops, but yeah, no canon characters where harmed in the making of this fic.
    I'm just really worried that I'll get their voices wrong :(
    The next one will establish the character a bit more, focusing on his backstory and situation. Maybe I could even work in some canon character cameos or something...

    I doubt I could write anything worthwhile. I would probably just sully their names and sling mud onto their images.

    Re: TROLL!COPS: The AU

    Well, one thing that strikes me right off the bat is that it's a little hard to read a fic made mostly of quirks. Just sayin'.
    Anyways while I dislike completelyincompetent/pathetic!Eridan, I must admit that his attempt near the end to achieve Scary Shiny Glasses was hilarious.

    Yeah, I figured it would be harder to read that way (although, amusingly, there was a spelling error I didn't catch until I quirkified the text). It's Terezi in first-person, and I want to capture her voice, but doing so at the expense of the reader is bad writing. How would you suggest I improve on my strategy here?

    At least it's not Feferi or Gamzee in first-person, I guess. :P

    Re: TROLL!COPS: The AU

    Hmmm....maybe only using the quirk at/for specific points/phrases? Like when Terezi thinks something especially Terezi-ish. Wow this is really unspecific. This is just sort of going off how I have seen quirks used in non-pesterfics, specifically in A Hand In Holding Hands with the dialogue, where they generally talk normally but sometimes slip into color/quirk mode.

    Re: TROLL!COPS: The AU

    I think I'll read some more, and then edit as necessary. I do have the non-quirk version on hand, since that's what I wrote originally. In fact, I'll post it up there in addition to what I have. One sec...

    -- EDIT --

    Done.

    Methods I'm considering:

    • Using quirks and color for dialogue only.
    • Using quirks for the whole thing and color for dialogue only
    • No quirks, no color
    • Color for the whole thing, quirks for dialogue only


    -- EDIT --

    In case this wasn't blindingly obvious by this point, lemme sum up what happened for those who are reading the thread archives.

    • I thought it would be a good idea to post an entire fic using quirks.
    • It turned out to not be that great an idea.
    • I added a non-quirk version.
    • I added a version with quirks in the dialogue but not anywhere else.
    • I deleted the other versions and went with that.
    • ...
    • Profit...?

    Re: TROLL!COPS: The AU

    Yeah, what I mostly do to improve readability is only color and quirk-ize the dialogue, though I ignore the "no punctuation" quirks.

    Re: TROLL!COPS: The AU

    Well, usually the "no punctuation quirks" simply use line breaks as punctuation
    (like I'm doing right now)
    Which doesn't really work in dialogue format
    so yeah

    Anyways I kinda had in my head something along the lines of quirks/color for dialogue as well as certain lines such as "a super-busy detective always bringing lowlifes to justice", "deduced", "logical art", "Once I won (which I would), I'd be done with him, and I'd also have solved yet another case"
    Basically the kind of lines which characterize Terezi/she would attach importance to
    But at this point I am micromanaging your fic so yeah go ahead and ignore me if you want
    I am only draw, no write
    I have no power over you

    I am [__THIS__] close to animating a short episode of troll cops set to Nothing but Noir music. Already have a self contained idea and storyboard partially worked up. Just depends on how much time I'll have within the next month and what music I can find.

    You could always just post both quirked and non quirked versions. I preferred the quirked one myself, for whatever reason.

    Re: TROLL!COPS: The AU

    I've modified it for quirked dialogue and non-quirked narration. This required a small overhaul of my code base, so I've posted that, too. Hopefully it's sufficiently non-crappy that someone else might opt to use it.
