Intro: I am a presently an undergraduate student. From time to time I get weird ideas for fics into my head that I just have to churn out.
For readers of And It Made All the Difference, I am truly sorry that the story is on hiatus. I have kinda lost my steam for Hikaru no Go. Though I have actually already finished the outline of the story. I know what I want to happen throughout the story and have noted it down on a word doc. I... just can't seem to flesh out the ideas. I apologise.
Survival is my latest fic. I also have a general outline of events planned out. The story is to end around the end of the War of the Ring. Getting there just happens to be a long journey. This fic will not centre so much around the Fellowship so expect to see many Original Characters and lesser known characters. The main character Scarlet will play a role in the War of the Ring but the purpose of this fic was really an experiment.
I wanted to try and create a story based on the cliche 'Girl ends up in Middle Earth' plot. However, I wanted to avoid creating a Mary-sue as far as possible. At the same time I didn't want her to be ill-equipped to survive the realities of the situation. I also didn't want her to be weak. I didn't want to create a 10th walker either. I generally find that 10th walkers are useless and don't add much to the story. They are usually just tag-a-longs, unable to change major events or character interaction. Hence I don't see a point in having them around on the journey, expect to provide a love interest. However, I don't really do romance type stories either.
Thus, based on my limitations, I needed a girl that was trained to fight or care for herself. She had to be mildly prepared to end up somewhere different so that she could avoid the initial flip out, panic and cry scenarios. She will get to help with the war but she won't be the hero. Realistically, she cant. She's just a girl. Unless she pulled a Mulan 'a single grain can tip the scale' type move. We'll see.
that it? yes it is.
