Welcome to Fiction Feedback Central. Here you can post snippets of writing, OC bios, and more. You can post as much or as little as you want. Just be prepared to give some input and help others with bouncing around ideas.

Types of posts:
1. OC bios. You may only have one of these posts for all of your characters. Just use the [BREAK] tag whenever you want to add a new page for a different character. This is only for characters that need development.
2. Story snippets. You may make one post per story. If it's a continuation of a story you've posted somewhere else, start off with a link to wherever you posted the beginning of the story so that no one gets confused/spoiled.
3. Idea development. You may make/update as many of these as you want. This is for those ideas you're throwing around that aren't quite stories. They can be under-developed plots, worlds that need to be built up, or anything you can think of.
4. Story links. You may only have one of these posts. The purpose of these posts is to link to your already-made stories or comics that you want people to read.
5. Friend fiction. You may make one post per story. These posts will be like fan fiction that involve your fellow writers' characters. They can be crossovers with your own characters, too. Just get your friends' permissions to write about their characters first.

(Sign ups will be open for the whole year. Don't worry about being "late".)

Idea Development: Untitled Fantasy Story

I've been kicking this idea around for a year or so, but not much has come of it.

Concept: A world populated only by fictional/mythological creatures.

Plot: I don't have a main plot. I have some side stories involving some of the secondary characters, but nothing concrete with the main cast.

Setting: Unsure. What I DON'T want is some kind of medieval setting, because that's been done to death. Since this is a fantasy setting, I don't want it to look completely like the "real world" either.

Characters: The main characters are an elf (might change that) girl and her two cousins, who are more like a little brother and sister to her. I might as well bullet-point all the characters, or else this will be one huge paragraph.

  • Main elf girl (tentatively named Susanna): About 15 years old. Often mistaken for a boy. Studied magic and can cast beginner to intermediate spells using a wristband. Her parents are either deceased or missing; she lives with her aunt and uncle and their children.
  • Elf boy cousin (tentatively named Victor): 13 or 14 years old. Takes things very seriously. Knows some swordplay. Very protective of his little sister.
  • Elf girl cousin (tentatively named Lucille): Preteen-age. Wants to help, but mostly gets into trouble. Comes into her own as the story progresses.
  • Main elf girl's teacher (tentatively named Prof. Owens): I'm unsure of what his race should be. Looks fairly young (possibly much older than he appears). A master of magic. Has a phoenix as a familiar. Possibly will only appear in flashbacks.
  • Character that main elf girl makes friends with: He is older than 15, but not by much. Has white hair and dark skin (maybe a dark elf?). Very polite. Works at an animal shelter (for fantasy animals, of course).
  • Half-breed lycan/kitsune: A minor antagonist. Has both lycan and kitsune powers, but not to the extent of either race. Works alone-- a "stray" of sorts.
  • Sprite priestess (tentatively named Vanessa): About 18 years old. Has the duty of guarding something secret (not sure what). She can make her soul leave her body and enter the body of another.
  • Kitsune boy (tentatively named Kisuke): The son of some government official/diplomat. Loves causing trouble.
  • Main antagonist: All I know about the main antagonist is that I want him/her to seem like some character that appears as a bit-part early on, but shows up again to surprise everyone.

As you can see, I don't have much yet. I don't even know where all of these characters will fit (and I'm sure that I'll come up with more of them).

The thing that I have developed the most is the main elf girl's magic wristband. It has a decoration that looks like the head of a watch. By drawing a shape on the "watch head" with her finger, she can create a spell. Drawing a triangle makes a lower-level spell. The highest level spells involve a hexagon.

What requires the most help: The non-existent plot. I'm sure that the rest will come a lot easier with a plot in place. The main elf girl and her cousins are on a mission to accomplish something, but I'm not certain as to what (I was thinking of collecting ingredients to cure an illness, but that seems kinda lame). I know I don't want one of those "I wanna be the best" sort of stories.

Updates:

  • New names for existing characters.
  • New character: A nekomata tentatively named Naoko. Rumored to be able to communicate with spirits. Might have visual impairment.
  • I'm slowly constructing a scene of how Susanna meets Prof. Owens. It involves her walking in on him while his phoenix familiar is dying after having laid an egg.
  • Still no concrete plot.

Story help

Sorry for spamming ^^; I just need to get something off my chest

It's about Lovell and Iven's story, I have a very rough draft for their story, but I'm not really feeling it anymore and I don't know where to go with it or even if I should continue with it. I love, love Lovell and Iven and the characters so far and the world building I've done for their world and I like small parts of the story but I don't know what to do with it or where to go.
I have a similar problem with another other group of characters, but I haven't been working/developing them for as long, so I'm not as down about it at the time being.

I'm trying to brainstorm but I don't know. . . any advice would be nice, but I just wanted to get it out
Sorry for bothering you and thanks for listening
