Well, it’s that time of year again, time to begin WriYe. It’s similar to NaNoWriMo, but it lasts a year instead of a month. It’s a lot of fun, and y’all should try it. Without further ado, here is a summary of the projects I intend to be working on. I’ll add a new one (possibly a rewrite) during NaNoWriMo.
- Star Wars: Forbidden
Word count: 34,757 / 50,000+
Type: Fanfiction (Star Wars)
Genre: Action / Adventure / Romance
This is a tale that I have had in mind for years. It follows Jedi Master Essek Tek-Farr and his apprentice Akenna Waraven through the Clone Wars. She leads him on a path that leads him to question everything he has ever learned about loyalty, life, and love. Rating hovers around PG-13. It’s currently hosted on deviantART, but I plan on eventually putting it up on FanFiction.net once it’s done.
- The Tale of Tux n Tails
Word count: 88,883 / 100,000+
Type: Fanfiction (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
Genre: Slice of Life / Romance / Harem
I didn’t plan this as a Harem fic, but that’s how it turned out. This story follows my OC, Tux, whom I based on myself. Description from FIMFiction.net: Tux n Tails is a pony who has drawn the short straw his entire life. Being a blankflank is nothing if you’re still a foal, but as a stallion, he doesn’t quite fit in. He escapes his stagnant life in Hoofton to start afresh in Ponyville, with one driving force: the hope of finding both his purpose and his true love. But soon, he finds himself caught up in a vast conspiracy, with the very fate of Equestria weighing heavy on his shoulders. In it, Tux has to deal with romantic advances from five of the Mane Six (Pinkie Pie excepted). He also has to deal with Discord, who is literally out to kill him. It’s somewhere near PG, but I would rate it PG-13 because reasons. It’s nearing completion, and it is currently hosted on FIMFiction.net.
- Fen Agaheth
Word count: 50,541 / 100,000+
Type: Original Fiction
Genre: Science Fantasy / Action / Romance
This was last year’s NaNo project, and I haven’t written on it since I got to a verified 50K. (First time I won since 2007.) The story is set thousands of years before the first thing I ever wrote (next thing on the list), just before the downfall of the Pagan Empire. It follows Shef Ameh, a girl who is orphaned in the first chapter and gets taken in by the Agahai, an all-female order of warrior monks. Bumps along her path include the demon-possessed Zoth, a judgmental elder, and the pain of Ameh’s past. Rating is PG-13 for violence and sensuality.
- Res Novae
Word count: 35,502 / 100,000+
Type: Original Fiction
Genre: Science Fiction / Action / Thriller
This is the third total rewrite of the first thing I ever wrote, and my July Camp NaNo project. The story is set on the same planet as Fen Agaheth, but thousands of years in the future. It follows a distant ancestor of Ameh’s, Chf’drak. At the very start of the story, his father, the king, is assassinated, apparently by a terrorist group. His corrupt older brother takes the throne, and Drak tries to find some way to take the crown. But as he digs deeper, he discovers a conspiracy that puts his life, and the lives of those around him, in grave danger.
- Fire in Tyrasii
Word Count: 26,099
Type: Original fiction
Genre: High Fantasy (with light Science Fantasy elements)
Very loosely inspired by Christopher Paolini’s Inheritance Cycle, even though the idea predates my reading of Eragon, or my watching the movie. The story follows the young elf Mindirallen, the last of her kind, as she finds a dragon hatchling in the wilderness. When her parents find out, they send her away; the dragon race has nearly been exterminated by the tyrannical king Neli, and consorting with one is punishable by death. And the reason being is that dragons are the number one threat against the throne. Mindi finds herself caught up in the resistance movement and a love affair with its leader Malisan. I may put this on Wattpad or something similar, but I’ll probably self-pub this on Kindle for cheap.
