In Topic: Planning Thread for Story Ideas

Yesterday, 11:40 AM

I've a few different stories things in mind.

 

The first is possibly revamping one of the very first roleplays I participated in on this site: Digimon: The Seven Demon Lords. https://forum.yugioh...re-forms/page-1

 

It's really amateurish, and definitely a sign of how much I had to grow as a writer. I've been using my character in that roleplay, Arthur, the current Grand Crossover Roleplay, and I'd like to revise the roleplay in my own way, both to give Arthur a more revised backstory, as well as to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the roleplay.

 

Another story I've wanted to do is Yu-Gi-Oh! Zodiac Cross. General idea is to have a western Zodiac-themed Duel Academy, but I'm not sure if I want that to be my own fanfic, or open that up to be a roleplay.

Not confident in either of these choices, but I guess we'll see how they do.

Since you mention Champions, you might want to know that Jim Zub will be taking over writing duties. https://www.newsaram...ns-ongoing.html

 

I'll admit, I'm a bit surprised. I figured it was going to be folded in with Avengers, but Jim Zub is moving from Uncanny Avengers and Avengers: No Surrender to Champions.

 

Legacy is still going on, and in part seems to be cleaning house for some of the newer characters. Curious if they'll have any new branding after Legacy.

Meredith's acquisition of Time surprisingly faced little to no opposition, so the deal should be finalized sometime next month. https://www.streetin...e/13683974.html

Although Republicans have currently shut down the government, Judge Richard Leon will not be delaying the trial for the AT&T / Time Warner merger, which is still set for March 19th. The current issue is obtaining pricing data in previous vertical mergers, as the major source of contention to this particular merger is how they may raise prices. http://variety.com/2...own-1202670132/

 

Not seeing too much about the Disney/Fox deal. Sure, there are articles regarding whether or not it's a good idea, but I'd rather stick to articles detailing the stages of each merger that I've been talking about.

Went with Noire yesterday, because I'd at least like to see more Awakening kids than Lucina and the Nohrian retainers.
