"Thinking aloud" here so I figured I'd post in this thread to get some advice. Any thoughts are appreciated.

So, the fanfic snippet I mentioned above is going to be part of a long work (4 part story but each chapter will be jam-packed with crap) although the idea of working in another "medium" instead of fanfic format is rather tempting. The only thing is, my drawing skills are worth a hill of beans (seriously sucks even though I enjoy doodling) and I already have made a Visual Novel before (though it's Windows Only program and yes I plan on doing two NGE stories at some point)...

I always wanted to create an Eva doujinshi and have had various ideas for such. (Still hope to use them in some form since they're sort of funny/silly/cute.)

I'd like to maybe create something of an "electronic-doujinshi" of sorts (it wouldn't be a game, more like an e-book I guess) but I wouldn't have the first idea on where to go about this.

I've never used Flash before and know you have to pay for it anyway, I guess I could just use an image editing program or maybe take screenshots using my Visual Novel program and put things together that way... Hmm.

I wouldn't be terribly concerned about copyright, since I made and uploaded that Visual Novel onto here with no problems and in general doujin are meant to be fan-works to show love for a show anyway... (I have Eva-2 image backgrounds and character sprites though there's also a place (pay-site) that happens to offer some 3D Eva backgrounds too... People do use character images/screenshots from anime for visual novels/whatever so it shouldn't be an issue and it's not like I'd be making money on it...)

I mean, yeah, maybe this idea sounds lame, but I think it could be interesting if done right.

As an example, here's an image of that 3D rendered Eva background (it's from a demo set of the images, you have to pay to get the whole thing) combined with some Eva2 character sprites I have:

Image

For "action" scenes or whatever, I could always use screenshots (either Renewal NGE/EoE or New Movie Edition) where fitting... So I guess in some ways maybe this project (IF I'd do it) would be like a visual novel that you don't actually play? :sweatdrop:

There might have been more I was going to say about this, but now I'm blanking out. (I feel foggy-headed today, more so than usual.) :sweatdrop: Any ideas or suggestions would be welcome.

I would honestly prefer to read a story I have no influence upon in simple text form, without having to download anything. Especially since every chapter will be jam-packed with content. You'll probably burn out writing dialogue AND assembling scenes together.

If however, you added the chance to affect some story things (maybe how Shinji interacts with people decides who he ends up with or who dies at a critical story point), then I would be more interested, even though really this is MORE content with an increased burnout risk. Yeah I'm weird.

So basically if I would make this into a (obviously playable) visual novel thing it could be interesting? Hm, guess I could keep that in mind. But yes I have a habit of falling into burnout which I have to keep an eye on. >_>

When you talk doujinshi you don't talk copyright -- this is the golden rule for doujin, but of course things may be very different in western worlds :sweatdrop:

No, not lame at all. I think it's pretty cool. Go for it ! :thumbsup:

I just remembered that I did take some HTML classes a year or two back and I have my notes somewhere still...I guess I could make the pages of the story using HTML (Kind of like Hetano's doujin works. I could probably find a way to make things somewhat CYOA-like for the story with clickable links) and that sort of thing..But making it visually interesting.. Hm, still thinking about that.

Yeah this whole idea of using a different medium with a fic is still in the planning stages, but the idea popped into my head the other day and it's pretty appealing to me.

It sounds like an interesting concept. I guess the html route would be more comfortable for the reader, dunno if it'd mean more work for you though.

I see one big threat though: Unless you do it "the other way round" and create a story from the material you have, there's the possibility that sooner or later you'd run into a plot point that you just don't have the proper pictures for to visualize.

Also, depending on how important it is for you, you'd probably get more feedback with a story on ff.net than with this, even if it's more original.

Would that be like a choice-making game(ish) comic thing?
Sounds cool.

Darkscribes.org is down for maintenance. Fanfiction.net has messed up formatting. Evageeks.org will have to do.

In honor of Shinji's birthday, my latest fanfiction (one-shot) is different. It's bilingual. I've been practicing Japanese lately, and I intentionally wanted to challenge myself... Let's see how well I did.

I truly apologize for any errors!!

Please enjoy! :shinji_blush:

Darkscribes.org はメンテナンスのため停止している。付け加えると, Fanfiction.netのフォーマッティングは目茶苦茶にしています。 Evageeks.org に行う必要があります。

シンジの誕生日を記念して、私の最新のファンフィクションは(ワンショットです)違います。バイリンガルです。私は最近、日本の練習します。私は意図的に自分自身に挑戦したい...のも私は方法を見てみましょう。

エラーは、本当にすみません!!

お楽しみに!

シンジは疲れてに目を閉じた。[また誕生日、か?]その時は決して特別な日はない。何時も苦痛に満ちた。

[Father.]

Even at age 18, Shinji would be ignored by that man. Not a word or a card. Nothing.

[父さん。]

18歳になっても、シンジはあの人から無視される。言葉ない。カードない。何も。

However. Sometimes, out of the corner of his eye, Shinji would rarely catch glimpses of blue hair. Rei. Proof that she was always silently watching over him. Protecting him. Despite her living on only spiritually...It was a slight comfort. Lilith. And yet... she was a painful reminder of Yui.

だけど。ときどき、シンジの目の片隅で、滅多にの青色な髪をチラッと見る。 レイ。彼へ黙って何時も彼女に見張てるの証です。彼を守る。 ただ、魂は生きるにもかかわらず。。。仄、慰めでした。リリス。癖に。。。彼女はユイの痛々しい思い出。

Asuka blushed, biting her lip. How stupid. That idiot moping about was not her concern. So why... Really, it was beyond stupid!

唇をかみしめる、アスカの顔を赤らめた。馬鹿みたい。あのばかでブラブラしてはアスカには関係ない。 だから、なんで。。。 ほんとう、 愚かを超えて!

Box gripped tightly, she knocked.

ボックスにしっかりとつかんだ、彼女はノックした。

Shinji looked up from his spot on the bed. “Come in...”

シンジはベッドの場所から上を見上げて。 「どうぞ、入って。。。」

Her eyes avoided his as she entered Shinji's bedroom. She held a small gold box. “Here.”

彼女の目は彼を視線を合わせない、部屋に入ろ。彼女は小さな金色のボックスを持つ。「はい。」

“But-”

「でもー」

Frown. Her eyes allowed no room for protest.

顰。 彼女の目に、抗議の余地を許せない。

Shinji nodded as he sighed instead. He accepted the gift...

シンジうなずいた、代わりにため息をついた。 プレゼントを受け取ました。。。

A small leather-bound notebook with a silver fountain pen.

銀な万年筆と小さな革表紙の手帳。

Writing had been a recent hobby. It helped him forget about the pain.

最近、書き込みは趣味です。彼に痛みを忘れて助けた。

Eyes wide, Shinji stammered out, “Than--”

目を丸くして、シンジは口ごもました: 「ありー」

“Not a word! Former Third.” Asuka huffed as she looked away. “Stop sulking! It’s your big day!”

「何も言わないで!前者サード。」 アスカ、ムッとして、目をそらした。 「すねるのはやめなさい!あんたの大切な日です!」

Acting on impulse, she pulled his hand. Standing upright, Shinji squeezed her hand. Asuka squeezed the idiot's hand in return. Their cheeks burned.

衝動に駆られる、彼女は彼の手を引っ張た。真っすぐに立つ、シンジ、彼女の手を強いた。アスカは馬鹿の手をギュッと握り返した。火照る頬。

Such children, despite nearing adulthood... Blue eyes met blue.

そのような子ども達、それでいて大人になります。。。 お互いに青い目が合って。

Beat.

ビート。

Hand clenched and unclenched.

手を握っては開いた。

Shinji's dry throat.

シンジの喉が渇いた。

Heartbeat.

ドキドキ。

“...I'm important?” , Shinji naively asked.

「。。。僕は大切な?」 、シンジを素朴な質問をした。

"..." Asuka narrowed her eyes.

「。。。」 アスカの目を細めて。

"I've already been by your side for 4 years. You tell me."

「あたしは、もう4年間であんたのそばにしてきた。教えてください。」

Body moving involuntarily, his lips gently kissed Asuka.

我にもないたに体を動かした、彼の唇はアスカにやさしくなキスをした。

That's right. He almost forgot.

そうだ。彼はもう少しで忘れる所だった。

Surviving the hell of Third Impact had taught him that.

サードインパクトの地獄から助かった、その事を教えた。

Asuka, Misato-san, his friends. Everyone was always by his side.

アスカ、ミサトさん、彼の友達。皆はずっとそばにいた。

He would not become bitter. He would not allow an emotional breakdown. He would not turn into his father. Shinji would continue to live.

彼は苦いにならない。 彼は情緒的な衰弱にはなりたくない。彼の父親にならない。 シンジは生き続ける。

Lips breaking away, they flashed warm smiles at each other. They held hands with light hearts.

唇から去た、お互いに温かい笑顔を振りまいた。うきうきした気持ちであの子達は手を握り合いた。

***

Misato and Pen Pen happily ate their lunch in the kitchen.

キッチンで、幸せにミサトとペンペンはお昼を食べた。

Nobody noticed the envelope on the kitchen table.

台所用テーブルで封筒を誰もと気が付いなかった。

A letter addressed to Shinji from Gendo.

シンジ宛の手紙へ、ゲンドウから。

Life had slowly begun to change for the better.

人生は徐々により良い方向へ変わり始めとなりました。


The End*完

As I read this, I can't help but see it in the form of an old shaky rattling silent movie with the text appearing in between cuts. That's what the sentence style reminds me of.

You said something about worrying that it might be too dry. If by dry, you mean "concise", I don't see what's wrong with that. :grin:

I am a fan of the well-used incomplete sentence. When a writer simply states the nature of a thing or its existence with no active verb attached, it forces the reader to simply picture the thing and contemplate its existence. You might say it emphasizes that the mere existence of the thing is what is important. That is certainly true of that gift and the letter.

One thing stands out. I find the use of "Frown." all by itself as a sentence curious. Why "Frown." and not "A frown."? When I first read it, for that first split second I wondered if the author was commanding me :D. More importantly, though, it's incongruous with "A small leather-bound notebook with a silver fountain pen" and other such uses, where you do use articles.

Monk Ed: Late reply is stupidly late. :sweatdrop: Thanks for your thoughts!

Cody MacArthur Fett: Nope, I don't really know of any Japanese fanfic sites. (I do have a few Japanese twitter friends, I could always ask them I suppose.)
___________

So, everybody remembers that idea I was rambling about? "Oh, I wanna do something different and creative~!" here?

I'm gonna be using this. So it'll be something of a 1st-person POV fic with images--but hopefully something interesting will come out of it, since I still plan on using my plot ideas (had this been a fic or visual novel or what have you).

The use of Japanese and English is trying to make a bilingual project, it'll be more challenging--and fun--for me that way. (And yes, like other tumblr pages, submissions and questions are allowed, see the top frame.)

Maybe this will suck, maybe this will be interesting, I guess I'll see. It's more or less a derivative work (slightly AU) done Epistolary-style.

I'm done regarding fanfiction/RPing. I'm going to finally focus on personal stories and creative writing. Thanks to all my reviewers, both the good and bad comments.

2004 to 2012 isn't a bad run at all. :wink:

Good on ya, mate. I feel that Fanfiction's good for testing your skills (if you're good at making it), but you really get to spread your wings when you write within your own universe.

Here's hoping whatever you do is excellent and succeeds.

Unless you're being paid by the word to grind stuff out, writing is done best when it's something you'd want to read. The secret is to take the elements that make a story you wanted to tell yourself with the fanfics, and just keep on writing -- only this time you have to do the bits of explaining who these people are and where they are that can be assumed. In the end though, the exercise of writing stuff you'd want to read, as gauged by the things you have read or seen -- "something like that, but different like this" -- is not a million miles from what you've already been doing.

There's a reason why I link my own works as "subtle fanfic" on my web site.
