Which story should I work on? They’re not fan fictions, just heavily inspired by each source? lol
- Rick&Morty inspired story
- Powerpuff Girls inspired story
- Invader Zim inspired story
- Steven Universe inspired story
My character is getting stared at by this guy with his family. I’m a little stuck. Should the guy:
- Stay there
- Approach him
- Somehow see him later
- have his family be in an open relationship
You can comment on why you voted or ask me about it for more details.
I recommend that, in order for the story to be more real, there must be variety. Some gay characters here, some straight over there, some bisexual too. Obviously it also depends on context, if it’s in the Medieval Era, probably most characters will be straight, and gay ones would be hiding it, your story could be about a medieval person struggling with the… Well, saying discrimination would be an understatement, of the gay people, idk
Why not make her part of the protagonist team?
So, this is something very minor but I can’t decide. My book starts three years after something happens, something very big, all world goverment’s were destroyed, 500 million people are dead, every single politician in the world is dead with very few exceptions, and police and military around the world were persecuted and given two choices “Join us or die” (Due to the fact this last thing extends to the beggining of the book, it’s an event of it’s own know as “The Blue Genocide”), all of this happened within a 24 hour span, and in the world presented at the beggining, it’s anniversary it’s the most important holiday of the planet. How is this day called?

I’m slightly confused by your suggestion. She is a part of the protagonist ‘team’ for the second book, but by the end of it, she’s fulfilled her purpose in the plot, while I could keep her around, she’d be an extra character with no real goal or drive in the story. And by taking her away from the MC, whether by death or her staying (where he won’t know what happens to her), would be one more blow/failure to him.
Once she fullfils her purpose, you could just have her live a normal life? The character can just kind of dissapear from the story but your implications say she is just chilling around somewhere. Of course, if you need the protagonist to have a blow, you can kill her, but killing when it won’t really add anything to the plot seems kind of pointless to me at least
If she stays behind, she’d just continue on her normal life. Which is one of the opinions in the poll.
Her dying would add to the plot because it would add to his guilt and add to his ‘people around me only get hurt/killed’ thinking process. And some other stuff, but I’d have to type out like four different possible end plots and a summary of the whole plot of three books to explain it.
She can’t come back with him and just go off to live a normal life chilling around somewhere because she doesn’t know how to. She’s to used to the constant threat of death, she has no idea how to live in a normal society, the MC or MC’s friends would have to help her adjust (not to mention create a fake identity and a whole bunch of other stuff for her), and she more than likely would refuse to leave the MC alone until she knows he’s okay (which would mean sticking around for the entire book). And she’s insanity nosy so it’s not like she would stay out of his business anyway. So having her just off and chill would make no sense and be out of character for her.
Even though I have a bit of an idea of where I’m leaning towards, I still wanted to put this out there to see what other people think.
To make a long story short (as best as I can ) in my story, the main plot revolves around my main character being the protector of an ancient object that holds the worlds memories, history and maintains the balance of the world. My antagonist is part of an organization that seeks to steal that object for their personal gain, but he mainly wants to make the world a “better place” by stripping away humanity’s freedom as it’s too dangerous for us humans to have any.
Trying to summarize everything even further, throughout the story my MC and antagonist are polar opposites somewhat, trying to achieve a similar goal but each one with varying moral/humane
actions and choices. In the end, I plan for my antagonist to see that his ways are probably not the best or right ones and I’m debating on how his arc will end or what lasting impact his end will have.
I’m debating on whether to have him die as he protects my MC from something, having him live and live to redeem himself or be imprisoned in the end for his actions. What do you guys think?
- He sacrifices himself
- He lives to redeem himself
- He is imprisoned
I mostly picked the one I picked for yours because Im a sucker for happy endings but you should go with what you think is best.It would be nice to see his wrong even if he is imprisoned ((or sacrifices himself)) like the start of the redemption.I dont know.
Sacrificing himself is a massive cliche for redeemed characters. Personally, I would rather see them live their life for redemption, but death can also be counted as ‘the ultimate sacrifice for redemption.’ It’s really about what you want your story to be about and what messages it conveys.
I feel he should live to redeem himself but that he still needs to face a punishment for whatever he’s done. He shouldn’t be imprisoned for life, or get a death sentence imo, but he shouldn’t get off scott free.
I have a poll for a decision I have been stuck on. To make long story short, I have a main character who has many children. She is essentially this half human being with special abilities unknown to anyone for her whole life, even herself. A woman in the shell of a human but a direct angel made by God. She can recover medically fast and reproduces many babies, having a higher chance of multiples than the average human (to reproduce faster). So, I either want her to have 14 children or 9 children.
First option is 14 children; twin girls (given away/abandoned), triplets (bxbxg), girl, triplets (bxgxg), boy, twin boys, and twins (gxb). She will live and raise 10 of them, eventually gaining more money and staying at home to raise them. She’s a naturally gifted mother and can handle them all.
Second option is 9 children, the more human option; boy (abandoned), boy, boy, girl, girl, girl, boy, girl and boy twins. She can handle them all as well, raising 6 of them.
- 14 children (g twins, bbg triplets, girl, bgg triplets, boy, b twins, bg twins)
- 9 children (b,b,b,g,g,g,b,gb twins)
I can handle stories about angels, vampires, magic and whatnot but I draw the line at saying someone can raise ten children at once and is ‘naturally gifted’ to handle all of them. Like, that’s where my suspension of disbelief ends.
(One of my aunt’s has nine kids, btw.)
