Heh. I think part of the issue was that it wasn't quite shaping up to be the kind of "interactive" fan fic I originally intended. I'd still like to do something like this, but I need to take it back to the drawing board.

Well, originally, I was thinking back to the couple of attempts at collaborative fan fic writing we did a few years ago (which was, in turn, inspired by the art collabs we did), and I didn't think those really turned out all that well. I decided that the reason it didn't work was because that when the story is being passed around and there's more than one person doing the writing, the result lacks any consistent vision or direction.
So, I thought that the way to fix that was to write the story myself, but to have other people provide creative input. That is, have specific elements (even written sections) that represented different members of the community in a similar way to all the different art styles seen in the art collabs. But even with the art collabs, someone has to put it all together, and that was going to be my job.
The problem was that no one signed up to contribute. So, then I decided it would be interactive by making it a "choose your own adventure" style story. But I eventually realized that that wasn't what I originally wanted to do. I mean, imagine if no one signed up for an art collab, and then I decided to just draw everything myself anyway. It's no longer a collaboration, so what's the point?
And I totally understand that writing fiction is a completely different beast from drawing art, but trying to figure out how to make it work is part of the fun (at least for me ).
So, I do have another idea that I think might be a little more clear and motivate people to want to join in, but I need to let it cook a little longer before I try it.
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
