Miss Muscle AND general thoughts on the addventure

by BigGuy - 10/31/2012 6:15 PM

First, a few general thoughts- i've seen some people worried that their additions to stories are "ruining" things for other authors. I find that's the fun of this- working with new ideas, For example  in the Amazing Woman story, I had planned for Black tiger to meet and seduce Brett, turning him into her own spy on AW. But I love the idea of BT and AW as friends with a past, and particularly the tensions between their life choices. So, instead of Brett going out on patrol against orders, i've set up the (strong) possibility of him being captured by The Countess- with, possibly, a similar result (or not). So I love when stories go to places I didn't expect. (Honestly, if you want to write a story without other people interfering, submit it to the "Stories" section- even if you do it chapter by chapter, at least you'll be in control.)


Having said that, a note on 'continuity"- by which I mean, within a story. In stories like the Miss Muscle and Amazing Woman stories, where (although based on old Addventure characters  the characters don't have a strong visual that's called to mind, I always try to provide a physical description. Of course, it can be hard to remember them, 10 chapters later! but it's disconcerting when a character (like Jessica in the Miss Muscle story) is described as blonde, but is suddenly a brunette in a later chapter. One trick is when you read the current chapter, and you want to add on, there's a "display past chapters" box at the top- that way, you can read through and note names, physical characteristics, etc., that have been established. Unfortunately, once actually start writing a new chapter, only the chapter before is visible- so sometimes I open up a new window, and keep the complete story in a separate window, so I can refer to it.

None of this is to suggest that I have a problem with little continuity glitches- generally, I just let them slide and try to correct them (or incorporate them) in a future chapter. Also, when a new chapter has an event that contradicts something I thought was clear, as in CALIBAN's Miss Muscle chapter where he has the Exo-Suitioner alive (I had our Big Bad get a message that 'loose ends were tied up, which I thought was obvious in meaning, but must not have been), I don't feel bad about writing in an explanation that somewhat contradicts the previous chapter- as long as I can do it artfully (or as close as I get to artfully). 

I'd love to hear other's thoughts on this.

Quick addendum- looking back at the story and realized it wasn't even me who wrote that the "loose ends were tied up"- just wanted to make that clear. Sorry.

I plan on continuing writing, but I was finding myself in a bit of a sticky situation... I need help describing the settings and such. I have been sticking to what I can do for a long time and I really wanted to try something new. By the way thanks Cal

Darknoodle, there is that Ann Weying fanfic on DA and fanfiction.net Granted it's not very long atm.
ESchorcho - 6/20/2017 9:57 AM
Danknoodle420, it's an erotic fanfic-themed addventure.
Danknoodle420 - 6/20/2017 1:58 AM
I literally spent hours searching for a Symbiote fanfic that isn't just based COMPLETELY on sexual activities. But I had came to a conclusion that it's impossible. Feel free to message me if you found a really good one or made one yourself. I'd love to

@Danknoodle420 nice job on those last two chapters! The quality of your work continues to improve with every chapter! Keep up the great work!

hoya: Maybe I didn't say it well. Sorry for confusion or inaccuracy. I hope it didn't ruin the story for you.

Hoya: Thanks. I'm aware that exec orders are not law. The idea was to get a congressman to add the order as a rider to a bill, sight unseen. maybe that's not possible.
