Have recovered from aforementioned shock.

In other news, The Unknown's summary reminds me of Phantom.

"A criminal on the run hides in a circus and seeks to possess the daughter of the ringmaster at any cost."

And it even stars Erik and Raoul! Er, Lon Chaney and Norman Kerry.

I'd like to see it, but I can't find it anywhere. *pouts* I want more Chaney in my movie diet.

Turns out I have no idea how to write an action scene. At all.

There is plenty of information about how pirates boarded ships, but nothing about how they actually got the captain and crew to surrender. So I'm on my own for that part.

I've decided to call the fic Ghost Ship, for lack of a better title.

I wish I had more faith in my writing skills.

Errol Flynn's autobiography and PMS do not mix.

At all.

...The former was an entertaining read, even though I'm pretty sure at least half of it was bullshit. I'd probably have a lot more to say, were I not currently at the mercy of the latter.

So there's this idea I've been kicking around in my head for a few weeks now, which I haven't actually done anything with due to the little voice in my head saying, "This is a very bad idea and you shouldn't do it. It's got nothing in common with canon except the names. If you actually write this and post it online, it will end up being sporked somewhere."

How come [community profile] das_sporking2 is the only sporking comm that's still active? It's not like the Suethors have stopped writing badfic. (Or have they and no one's told me?)

Either way, I feel like I missed out on a lot.

So I have a pretty good fic premise and not much else. I need to figure out what a world in the aftermath of a war between Mary Sues and sporkers would look like.

And who's in charge of things now.

And how to get the main group of heroes together.

And how the heroes find out about the Sues in the first place.

And what they do about it.

And how the Sues are eventually defeated.

And what other fandoms I'm going to include along with the two main ones.

And where to post the fic when I write it.

And how to crosspost from LiveJournal to Dreamwidth.

*really, REALLY wants to write a fic like The Shining Creatures, but is afraid of ripping off The Shining Creatures*

I'm great at creating characters, but not so great at coming up with plot ideas. *sighs* I have no fewer than sixteen original-fiction characters and four fanfiction characters sitting in my documents, unused and neglected.

On the other hand, I have two perfectly good plot ideas, but they're more suited to high fantasy, a genre which none of my already-existing characters inhabit. It's not that I don't eventually want to use them, I just want to work with the characters I already have before starting on something new.

*sighs again* Fuck it all.

A complaint

I have never read a novel about Norse mythology that (A) I liked and (B) actually got the mythology right.

It's sad. I was enjoying Witches of East End up until the last few chapters, at which point Norse mythology was introduced and promptly thrown out in favor of some utterly WTF shit. On the other hand, The Sword of Summer and Loki's Wolves did a pretty good job with the mythology, but the story and characters failed to interest me.

I won't give up, though. I still hold out hope that one day I'll read a book that meets both of these criteria. And if I don't, well, maybe I'll just have to write it.
