If you've ever gotten a review from me that you didn't like, suck it up. It wasn't a flame. There was a flaw. There was a problem. There was an inconsistency with either plot or character. There was room for improvement. Your story was messy af or it contained extremely problematic or creepy elements that you were normalizing (i.e. rape/abuse/underage sex/pedophilia). Or you seriously managed to fuck up something simple. I'm not going to praise your mistakes. Don't be a baby.
I do not beta-read. Never ask me to beta-read. I'm a terrible beta-reader.
I rarely accept suggestions from readers, as most stories will be complete prior to posting.
I am also not accepting story requests because I flat don't have the time to do stuff like that.
I'm not open to collaborations. When it comes to writing, I just don't work well with other people.
What is Shatterpoint?
Aside from being an umbrella title, Shatterpoint is a “rebooted” DC fanfic universe that I started writing back in February 2013. The New 52 just wasn’t doing it for me and I had a lot of ideas that I needed to get out of my head. I found it difficult to write within canon because hey, DC doesn't really have a wholly defined canon. They've had so many Crisis events and so many legacy characters and it's spread across so much media that it's hard to know where to start. So I started cherry-picking, trying to streamline the characters and the plots of various stories. I've culled ideas from a multitude of media/comics. As the fanfic universe progresses, you're likely to find a little bit of everything.
Keep in mind that I'm writing well ahead of where I'm actually posting so the stories will likely pre-date any of the upcoming DCTV or DCEU releases. And since I'm drawing inspiration from the same sources as the DCTV/DCEU, most similarities are either going to be coincidences or straight up rip-offs. Not gonna lie. There's gonna be some very familiar recycled material.
When I first started, progress was stop-start since I was writing piecemeal and out of order. The internal continuity was wonky as hell, so I had to go back to the beginning anyways. In the last three years, the 'verse undergone some considerable revision and it grew a lot larger than I predicted. I've ended up with an extensive timeline, a long list of potential stories, more DC comics knowledge than I thought I would have, and plots that should stand up to most scrutiny.
Ten stories are confirmed for “Phase 1”, which takes place over the course of four years and contains two crossover events. Phase 1 will introduce Superman, the Flash, and Wonder Woman, and their associated supporting casts. Currently, Architects is being posted.
If wildly AU origin stories comprised of canon-welding, canon cherry-picking, and a “back to the classics” approach are part of your jam, then I might have something for you. All current titles are presented below in chronological order.
Crucible- COMPLETE, POSTED. 42 chapters and an epilogue. This is the Superman origin story that employs a lot of canon welding and was mostly inspired by Superman: the Animated Series. (*The first half of chapter 1 is kind of rough, but stick with it. It gets better going down. I'll figure out a better opening some day)
Architects- COMPLETE, BEING POSTED. IT'S HERE! 15 chapters and an epilogue. A story about the Metropolis P.D. Special Crimes Unit and a pseudo-sequel to Crucible.
Formation- COMPLETE, NOT POSTED. 38 chapters and an epilogue. Proper sequel to Crucible.
Lightning Storm- IN PROGRESS. The Flash origin story. Currently 29 chapters and counting.
