No, that's why I have a BIG problem. Although I want to get the complete version (which includes all DLCs), I haven't got off my butt to order it and the PS3.

I don't mind spoilers. It's just my lazy butt refusing to get moving.

Permit me, then, to give a nudge in the direction of EmoPrinny's complete playthrough (including DLC).

Someone wrote in a Ted/Marina story there.

I saw it already. Kinda cute, but I don't feel the guy properly captured Marina's personality. He made her seem quite a bit more responsive than she usually is; normally, she's a pretty impassive person, IMO.

On a side note, I kinda wish Dr. Evil would update his Edy Detachment fanfic at some point. THAT is a good one.

Hear hear.

As a new intruder into this thread, I'm going to go ahead and first say that I don't own this game, much less a PS3.

That didn't stop me from being incredibly impressed with the presentation of this story, Valkyria Chronicles, and soon I had wasted an entire week going through EmoPrinny's playthrough. Yeah, yeah, I skipped past all the tedious combat, but I got all the story telling. And what storytelling. While the plot is rehashed, the characters are refreshing and the interactions full.

Except for one. Guess, go on, I'll wait...

...
...
...

Isara's death by Newberry Medal.

Seriously? The only thing this accomplished was pushing the Empire over the moral event horizon so that you didn't feel bad in crushing Selvaria and Maximillian later in the game. (Although Selvaria was still a tear-jerker, so they obviously didn't suceed. )

The blatant attempt to dehumanize the Empire was also overblown.

It's rare that I come across with a story so well written that only has one glaring flaw, and so, I ask you folks:

What would you think of a story to continue the plotline of Isara, told from the (main) perspective of the Empire?

The story will not be a complete AU - rather, Isara will get (apparently) offed in a less "YES THAT'S RIGHT SHE'S ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY NEVER GOING TO COME BACK DEAD" manner, to allow for her to pop up somewhere else. Ironically, this would most likely require an additional, new protagonist, as a Darcsen Gallian wouldn't last too long in the Empire... circumstances will mean that Isara will not have a canon-breaking reintroduction into the main plotline - but, after the war, well, that's when I can let my pen/pencil/keyboard/mentalprocessors run free.

Also, I can humanize the Empire, add in some details, connect some dots, and add in some theories that could cause some serious tension after the war...

Perhaps something like this:

Spoiler for Brainstorming, this is nuts!:


... wow, that was longer than expected. Give me your thumbs up or down, suggestions, and I'll see what I can do.

And for god's sake, give me a NAME for this chap.

If you don't mind running through all the pages within this thread, I do have a skeleton for an Imperial-centric fic. In that one, I kept Isara alive. Heck, to think about it, I kept everyone alive, if only to put some through the emotion grinder (Selvaria, for one).

My fic was written from the perspective of an Imperial squad, who initially came into conflict with Squad 7 at random. (There is a backstory of how this squad was forged.) Later, the struggle between the two squads went through highs and lows, before there is a conclusion.

That sounds pretty awesome actually, I don't really like the idea of Isara dying, I think a lot of us don't really feel the point of it. So I think this will be great to at least made me feel better.

Your concepts look interesting and did you check out the DLC contents? It adds a bit more side story to Selvaria and Johann, which I think is a pretty interesting character.

As for the names..I am not really good with names, but Imperial name are somewhat Germanic/Eastern European names from the squad list in DLC..although they do have English sounding names like Eugen Evens.

If you need help making up a name, you could try some websites that have random name generators. Here's an example:

Nice idea, Runty.

I do like Isara arming herself with the wrench.

Wenches with wrenches. Isara is a hard person, determined and steady. I think a good motif to put throughout the story will be denting Celestyn Faas Jacelern's (soft C, by the way. sell-ess-tin, faz, ja-kel-earn) skull. *ducks all attacks (with wrenches) made by mechanically-inclined females*

And I actually thought of the underground river incident first, then dismissed it. It seems a bit forced, I mean, seriously, how many underground rivers are there in the world? (Not many.) Also, even if Isara can't swim... neither should a man outfitted in the Empire's armor. Seriously, that much metal? Glub glub glub.

Spoiler for Plans for the opening two chapters:

yeah, think it's too many lines and too much emotions shown from her.
The best smile i think is from one early episode of the anime, but it's more like a mixture between sigh and smile, can't really capture the word for it. can't really think she can giggle, let alone laughing. but that's why i want to hug her if possible.
initially thinking of doing a fanart based on that story, but guess the character impressions presented in the fanfic is not what i had in mind.

I think the story is quite well done. My impression of Marina isn' that well to say she's not a total ice queen, but she's a tough nut to crack..and the game really doesn't give us enough time to get to know Marina's personality that well. So being a fanfiction, anything goes

That's the name you come up with..quite a mouthful, but I think it fit nicely.

I think if the current isn't too strong it might be still possible if you are really good swimmer?
underground river? nah..they are everywhere you know!!!! You should let your imaginarion run wild, as long as it's not magic..it'll work.

FF.net's VC subcategory already has a story based on Claudia Mann.

Seriously we need more stories of the men and women that make up the bulk of Squad 7. I remember someone doing a story there on Salinas, the Edelweiss and Freesia.

I want to do some story on Elysse Moore, and some fluff scene with Montley Leonard, since I like how their potential/personalities are directly opposite of each other. Elysse is very laid back and slow starter, as well as having a Scout hater potential. While Montley is very impatient and fast-paced, and he's scared of lancers!..

Anyway..I am still thinking about what to write though, hopefully I'll have some ideas soon.
