Fanfiction Concepts, Creation & Discussion Thread
Hello! Thot I'd put up something like this to discuss new ideas and give a place for everyone to post their fics and character profiles.
[Audacious Space Traders] is currently in progress, so I made a separate thread for it to reduce clutter. You can post comments here instead.
Let's have fun together!
I'll just kick things off by sharing some design notes about Kaelis.
I dreamed up Binville around the core of "1 man with nothing more than his blaster and his illegally modified freighter plying the galaxy". I was inspired by Mal from Firefly to create Kaelis, making him younger, fresher, and much more eager. But from time to time, you get a peak inside his heart, and you will see that he's not that big a man he tries to be. Still, he tries, and in his own way differentiate himself from other Han Solo clones in the galaxy.
The Crest Eagle draws inspiration from famous old ships like the Serenity and the Ebon Hawk. Her name follows the Star Wars convention of light freighters started by the Millenium Falcon. The ship itself however is from an old game, Wing Commander: Privateer. It is a Galaxy-class heavy merchant ship that I have upsized to be able to function as a proper space freighter. Fitted with four engines as large as the main body, the Crest Eagle is flat-out the fastest ship in the sector. And since the engines are located in nacelles outside of the main decks, there is plenty of room for cargo, and even more nooks and crannies for Kaelis to stow the more questionable ones. As he would tell you,
"she doesn't look like much, but she's got it where it counts."
The story starts off with him returning from spectacularly blowing up a mission that his future employer gives to contract candidates he wants to get rid of. While still foaming at the mouth, Chow begrudgingly acknowledges his effectiveness and sets him up to tail the Captain of the Babarossa. This ties in to the first 5 episodes of Bodacious. His client is anonymous, Kaelis unable to use his ship, and with Chow somewhat intent to still get him killed, Binville sets off still on his toes. Except there's that nagging at the back of his mind, that he had met Chiaki Kurihara before...
What do you guys think?
The lastest chapter is rather iffy given that we don’t know the nature of FTL in Moretsu other than ‘it exists’. I just ran with what I saw in the trailer and made a disco out of it. With Rinne no Langrage and MoP as “sister shows”, I think its neat to have a small nod in the other direction.
I’d like to think of the Crest Eagle as a hardworking girl with loads of talent and ability wanting to work for others. Like the girl in the orange jersey. And like
-chan, when Crest Eagle “takes it off”, she can do anything. That’s why I’ve taken
as the one-off theme for her.
Samia Rankajima is a thinly veiled reference to Nakajima. She appears as Kaelis’ favorite idol singer, and her records and posters will appear throughout the series. She might even play a role in the story some day…
Kha. Not again. I beg you. Please.
Also, moar Jenny. Moar.
Oh there will be Jenny in Traders alright. You could even say that this first segment of the spinoff is solely about her making use of Kaelis' underworld services.
good good =) I like
How about stories of Jenny and her day job?
Depends on what you mean by day job. Shipping? Well... There's some. And there's like every single thing that she wrangles from the Empire, and the results of when she and Cypher One of Section 31 are really good friends.
I have an fanfic idea if your interested.
It's a Miniskirt Pirates x Crest of the Stars fanfic.
Didn't expect to see this place come back to life before I was done ironing out the kinks in my plot.
Let's hear it.
Before i begin here's a brief story about what Crest of the Stars is for those of you who don't know.
Crest of the Stars
Crest of the Stars (CTS i'll be calling for here on) is a Space Opera anime based on the novels by Hiroyuki Morioka.
The story is about a war between the Abh Empire and the Human Alliance. The empire are lead by a space faring species called the Abh. Despite their blue hair, the Abh are not aliens but genetically engineered humans as they were once a slave race used by a group of racist humans before rebelling and defeating their former masters. The Human Alliance is an alliance of four human organizations(United Mankind, the Federation of Hania, the Republic of Greater Alcont, and the People's Sovereign Union of Planets) that are against the Abh Empire especially United who are very racist to the Abh. The war in the series is due control over various gateways which allows space ships to travel to other star systems quickly.
The war between Abh and Alliance is a grey one due to how their governments treat their citizens and policy over space travel. As TV Tropes explains:
* The alliance lets you join willingly; keep your spacecraft; participate in interstellar politics; and provides security, infrastructure, and technology at no apparent cost. On the other hand they they force planets to culturally assimilate, set down very intrusive policies in the name of security, and will take over your government and run it like a military dictatorship if they feel they need to.
* The Abh respects the culture of the planets in their empire, allows governments to maintain their sovereignty with a few minor caveats, and provides aid no strings attached if it is requested. On the other hand they force planets into their empire, will confiscate all ships capable of intergalactic travel, and only Abh nobility may own the means of interstellar trade and travel.
Basically the people are either ruled by fascists or communists.
But the main in the story is about the relationship between Jinto Lynn, a human boy who became a noble after his father surrender their planet to the Abh rather than fight and Lafiel, an Abh girl who is actually a princess and the Abh Empress's granddaughter. Any more info about the series you can search online.
So within this fanfic, the planets of the Miniskirt Pirates has never meet the planets of CTS and vice versa since they are set at different parts of the galaxy. The fanfic begins when an Alliance fleet discovers a peaceful planet ruled by the Galactic Empire. The Alliance at first are happy to meet other humans but they soon learn these humans are relaxed about genetic engineering and recreational drug use. The Alliance decides to "enlighten" the "hippies" by forcing their own fascist culture on them, harassing genetically engineered people and ban drugs.
The Hippies aren't please so they secretly contact a nearby Galactic Empire Battlestar-class ship which manages to beat back and force the Alliance out of the planet. The Alliance are pissed and calls in 4 more fleets to teach these "inferiors" their place. Unfortunately, the patrol fleet contacted reinforcements in the form of space fighters and space pirates. Due to their speed and use of jump gates which the Alliance doesn't have, the fighters and space pirates jumps into the middle of the Alliance fleets, catching them by surprise, where they proceed to destroy or board the enemy ships, easily beating them. After learning about the Abh from captured Alliance intel, the Galactic Empire travels to where the Abh and Alliance came from. There, the Galactic Empire contacts the Abh Empire which leads to talks and eventually an alliance is formed between Empires against the Human Alliance.
The fanfic is divided in two parts with part 1 focuses on Marika, Chiaki and the Space Pirates as they help the Galactic Empire and Abh allies against the Human Alliance. Part 2 focuses on a upcoming galactic war as relations between the empires sours.
In the next post, i'll explain about the characters and maybe a love triangle.
That actually sounds epic. Whereas I've been completely Bioware.
Do tell. :3
So there's a new Crest of The Stars novel after eight years.
Also, there a new manga adaption of the series as well.
I still plan to talk about the characters in my fanfic idea in my next post.
