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.

@bambucea09, you know redketchumashsbro has added a lot to symbiote stories. And even if he hasn't, spewing insults is hardly endearing.

So working on a new ssat chapter, then afterwards a new chapter for masterplan and then maybe bliss. Depends on were or when solar eschorcho will take their chapters??
bambucea09 - 8/30/2016 12:13 AM
@Regret you did a very good job with Lauren's Rise to Dominance chapter.

buffyvamp, thanks for adding to the Bacchus Rising storyline. Very well written. You nailed the dialogue!

sry for double post. It was a browser tab-restoration.
Cal512 - 8/29/2016 3:20 PM
@bambucea09 Isn't "Wasp: Devilish Woman" pretty much what you want? Why not add something there?
bambucea09 - 8/29/2016 2:14 PM
To Cal512. Good idea but isn't what I mean to say. I want to read not to write...I'm upset because I can't find one good to read and be my type...
