Why am I here? To read fan-fiction written by all of you of course! All those plot bunnies, those ideas that spew out of your head faster than a new idea dies. Some good, some bad, some just god awful.
I suppose I should clarify something before going on. To those few author's who read this, my 'Follow' list is my 'To Read Later' list and my 'Favorite' list is my 'Follow' list. Now that you're even more confused I shall laugh while twirling a mustache.
Quotes: Because It's What The Cool Kids Do
"Doesn't matter what the press says. Doesn't matter what the politicians or the mobs say. Doesn't matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right. This nation was founded on one principle above all else: the requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences. When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world — 'No, you move.'" -Captain America
"Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place." -Iain S. Thomas
"Quando omni flunkus moritati" (Pseudo-Latin for "When all else fails, play dead") -Possum Lodge Prayer
"When does a man die? When he is hit by a bullet? No. When he suffers a disease? No. When he ate a soup made out of a poisonous mushroom? No! A man dies when he is forgotten! Even if I die, my dream will come true. The people's hearts will be cured!" -Dr. Hilulik (One Piece)
Story Ideas That Will Never Get off the Ground i.e. Challenges
Shingeki no Kyojin/Attack on Titan: SI/OC reborn as a Titan. Yes. As a Titan. I've seen one story like this already and I want to see more. They can eventually become a Titan Shifter if you want but should spend some good amount of time, at least a year or two, as a Titan. Could go Ymir's route and nom on some poor unskilled Titan shifter, could be a Titan that likes to troll people, or do the whole internal battle between the Titan inside versus the human mind. You have a lot of flexibility here and a whole universe to play with. Don't fuck it up. Try to avoid a Levi pairing. There are too many of those already. Naruto: SI/OC as a roommate to Kurama. As you die in one life, the Shinigami burps/sneezes/get's bored, whatever, and your soul gets stuck inside Naruto but not inside the cage. Yes I know Minato used the Shinigami to seal the Yin chakra in himself but just roll with it. The new soul could become the dominant one and grow up as Naruto, take a seat back and be more a voice in his head, or just taunt Kurama. Could use the eventual learning of Kage Bunshin to create a new temp body. Crossover: Naruto (or any more adult show) x Pinky and The Brain: During one of his usual plots to rule the world Brain builds a device that either naturally fails or gets a dose of Vitamin P(inky). This results in them being flung across time and space and landing in some other world. The place may be strange, the people bizarre and the customs vary but there is one constant: "Gee Brain, what do you want to tonight?" "The same thing we do every night, Pinky - try to take over the world!" Crossover: Shingeki no Kyojin/Attack on Titan x Godzilla: Humanity is on the brink of extinction, trapped inside three massive walls. Maria. Rose. Shina. They have been the protectors of humanity for over a century. Now that the walls have been breached, humanity must go on the attack. But humanity will not be alone, for now Earth's defender has awoken. Titans beware, the King of Monsters has returned. Or use Mothra. Or Rodan. Or your favorite. Crossover: Shingeki no Kyojin/Attack on Titan x M.E.G.A.S. XLR: During a training session/fight/smashing stuff, Coop hits the wrong button and transports himself, along with Jamie and Kiva, through time and space. Now stuck in a new world where colossal creatures eat humans, there is only one thing to: find the nearest Megaslush. You dig giant robots. I dig giant robots. Titans do not dig giant robots.
The Grinch Doesn't Hate Christmas
I'll admit, this is a very different rant than my usual but I need to get this off my chest. Most of us have seen either the classic animated Grinch cartoon or the 'meh at best' 2000 remake. For those who haven't here is a quick summary: The Grinch is a grumpy green haired guy that lives on a mountain with his pet dog. Every year his neighbors in a town, called Whoville, living near the base of the mountain, called Whos, celebrate Christmas every year with a good old party. This annoys the Grinch who vows to ruin their Christmas, steals everything, expects the Whos to be sad but when they aren't he understands Christmas isn't about things or gifts but spending time with family and friends. So his heart grows three sizes that day, somehow not breaking his rib cage or damaging other organs, returns all the stuff he stole and heartwarming moments are had. Pity the Whos down in Whoville are assholes who deserve all their stuff stolen.
Yes you heard me. Think about it for a moment. The Whos celebrate Christmas so loud that a guy on top of a mountain can hear them. And this isn't just a one off thing. It has happened year after year for over 40 years. Imagine that every year around Christmas, or anytime really, your neighbors have a huge party that any sane person would call the cops on. Except the cops are attending, everyone in town was invited. Except you. For over 40 years. The Grinch didn't hate Christmas. He hated the Whos and finally had enough of their noise took matters into his own hands. But what about the ending? Where he brings the stuff back? This is played straight. He learned that the Whos celebrate Christmas not for gifts to be got but family to be-er-fought? But you know else learned this? The Whos down in Whoville. I doubt all of them knew at heart what Christmas time is about so the Grinch, oddly, helped them by stealing their stuff. The irony is that both parties learned the same lesson: Christmas time is about spending time with friends and family, or if you have neither, then doing good for your fellow man. That is the power of Christmas. Or maybe the Grinch was a dick. I dunno. I'm gonna have homemade eggnog.
