How to keep divergent tales from the same Storyline straight?

by CorruptionCentral - 1/16/2014 6:10 PM

We have all seen here how a single good idea or Storyline can spawn multiple divergent tales.  Many times the contributors of one tale have very different writing styles and preferences in fan fiction fetishes than the contributors of others yet the Storyline is the same no matter how many variants there are.

My main concern is not disappointing readers open a chapter only to find it has nothing to do with the story they were looking forward to reading or frustrating authors when well meaning contributors add something completely out of context with the story due to them mistaking the tale they added to for another divergent tale from the same base Storyline.

Is there any preferred way to track the divergent stories and keep things straight?  Does anyone have any helpful suggestions or opinions on this subject they would like to share?

Well, it won't stop you from clicking, but I like to write a brief recap of characters and/or situations at the top of each post. Obviously, not an ideal solution, especially for story lines with lots of characters.

I'll have a chapter of Pink Lanterns up around noon, and a Devilish Women chapter a bit later.

I am part way throw the intro, can't figure out the end point for chapter 1:1 and the point for chapter 1:2
Yang Xiao Long - 5/24/2017 6:41 PM
I have an idea for Devilish Women. I'll post it tomorrow.

Any 24 hrs challenge you want to see more of from me? Black Cat, Black Knight, Baroness, other?

Great chapter, GAV. I don't think it's too dark. It serves the plot. Any update on the new Rubber Queen storyline?

Too dark?
