>I have a story I’ve been telling for a very long time. In its first incarnation, it was actually a Vampire Hunter D fanfic, although I didn’t know what fanfic was at the time. Complete with a pretty blatant mary sue self insert in the classic sense. 🙂
Over the years, it’s evolved into its own tale, a high fantasy about a shapeshifter and a Hunter from the Hunter’s Guild. Set in my own, original world, Bethra. I’ve got maps and such. Problem is, the story itself has stalled… I know what happens in the major confrontation… but after? No clue.
Last night, I was lying in bed, half asleep and delirious last night, when a bolt from the blue struck me.
I’m going to pull the characters, the plot, and all out of Bethra (the world) and plop it into Earth. Post-civil war earth, to be exact. Alternate universe Earth, one where there are things of a paranormal nature (shapeshifters, vampires, elves, etc) as a standard part of society; the Hunter’s Guild will be set up to fight rogues of whatever kind, sort of a quasi-governmental bounty hunter’s society.
I don’t know how it will turn out. But I’m suddenly very, very excited about this story. I’d been planning on participating in Script Frenzy as a rebel anyway (scripts aren’t my art form, but I have to be on the forums anyway in my mod capacity) and I think I just figured out what I’m going to do!
