Probit's Works

Post by Probit Return on Sat 26 Dec 2009 - 0:30

So as some of you may know, I haven't updated any of my stories in a fairly long time. I normally blame this on my own general lazy nature combine with my writing usually going toward original fiction, as opposed to fanfiction. But I've come to realize that such isn't the case (well it is, but it's not as big as I first thought). No, I think I backed myself into a corner when I decided to make Life After Death a part of the other works.

Now, it's not that I hate any of the stuff, it's just that it was all a spur of the moment type of thing that I kind of regret now. I suppose I could just go back and edit the stuff to make it a bit more of how I want it, but I've been kind of wondering if I shouldn't just scrap everything, save the first chapter of Memories, since I really enjoy that one, and reboot it in a new "fanon-ish" universe that is more in line with my original goal. Same characters (minus Elsa), similar premise, though with some new events, and some new-ish faces. This also gives me a bit of freedom to work in alternate versions of characters like Luca and Freya.

I know it wouldn't be very... productive, I guess, to just push the delete button and undo everything, but I feel that if I don't, it won't go anywhere. And it's not like I wasn't planning to make a new version anyways. I was just planning to wait until I finished the others first. This would just cut out the middle man.

I'm trying to do the same with Michele and Kara. Pactio is an attempt to distill all of my previous M+K fiction into a new, single, cohesive narrative, hopefully benefitting from what I've learned from writing it the first time as individual stories.
