That's why I created a new villan for my Fanfiction. Dr. Glimmer I'm trying to think of a way to give him more motivation for doing what he's doing.

I like Zeroxseed Idea

Senpai - It was mentioned in third person narration that the world really is stilted. The robbers in the Charlotte x Laura filler were noted to be brave for doing crap in a world as biased as theirs. Ichika was nowhere in sight and this is unbiased. Also we do see this with the whole 'females can rent dresses but males have to buy them'.

Regardless I meant more cyberpunk and less mecha fantasy.

@ Demi
Area 88 I can agree, it's a real masterpiece.

It also focus on individual's struggle rather than overreaching politic (though it does exist in the background)

@ Eras
Ah yes that one, still I prefer to gloss over that

And I did say the cyberpunk idea is interesting.

Quick question for my fanfiction. What would it take to get Tabane to notice a person who's last name isn;t Orimura or Shononono?

I think Fafner would also be good inspiration for an enemy figure. An alien race that interacts by assimilation but split between factions in its own hivemind. Those that chose to be here and those that chose not to be here

@coco
It's easy to catch her attention, but it's very hard to catch her attention long enough to be relevant.

To put it short, if you're not interesting in her mindset, at best she'll give you a glance then ignore you afterwards.

What if she was asked by Houki?

And why Houki asked her? What's her reason? That's the more important question.

Tabane will do anything Houki personally asked.

You know, the appearance of IS itself is promoting green anarchism. Even nuclear science has use more than IS then, and it is less dangerous. Why not a big portion of society rejects it (which lead them to deny a lot more) as fierce as the others who embrace it?

On a side note, talking about politic. Why every anime fic I've been reading that try to tackle the matter always take a stereotype approach? For example, the idea of Russian resurrect (or at least accept) the Soviet Union and the Eastern Block is as ridiculous and impossible (if not more) than all sci-fi?

Maybe not but Tabane is the only one who makes IS's and can decide whoever she wants to give one to.

How difficult would it be to write a compelling male OC who can pilot IS when he doesn't have a clear enemy?

There is no organization against him. He doesn't have a grudge against Tabane or anyone. It's just that he lives in a way that he doesn't want to be looked down on?

I don't want to be the loser. I don't want to be the person that has to pick up after everyone breaks everything. I don't want to be the person who has to watch as others lose everything like I have. I don't want to be defined. I don't want anyone to decide my worth for me.

It may sound grand but just something of human nature with pride and confidence but not quite arrogance?

Probably already taken note of but trying to juggle less with how being an IS pilot affects life or romance. Less about teens and their hormones trying to throw themselves at each other. More about trying to piece together who you are and sort out muddled emotions as you grow up with all these complications.

It's hard to write that type of male OC and actually try to make sense inside the story. I actually crashed with this issue while writing, and currently am lefting it On Hold while trying to find a way to make it fit.

A common way to make it fit well could be: introduce him as part of Ichika's inner (or outer) circle of friends from middleschool. Let's say that he somehow got thrown onto the madness after Ichika's reveal.

Also a little crazy idea... why if the reason why Cecilia was chosen as the Blue Tears pilot had something to do with some sort of psychic power?

The type of male OC I had in mind is actually quite the opposite. Ichika doesn't like him at all. Because of the way the OC is confident and proud of himself while Ichika tends to just bend to the whims of those around him. Both are good guys and both are kind but in fundamentally different ways.

OC: I turned her down because it would be cruel to string her along.

Ichika: You didn't have to be so harsh about it.

OC: She wouldn't take a hint otherwise.

Ichika: It doesn't change the fact you hurt her.

OC: And what would you do? Accept the invitation? Escort her around town and let her lavish you with love when in the end you never even entertained the notion of entering any sort of commitment, however temporary, with her?

Ichika: Do you listen to yourself? Who cares the hypothetical what ifs of a given situation when somebody's crying right in front of you?

OC: The concept of closure seems to escape you. Then we're at an impasse.

Ichika: Then let's decide this with a duel. If I win you apologize.

OC: And if I win? Well, there's really nothing you could offer me that would have me accept this challenge.

Ichika:... I'll tell you my sister's 3-sizes.

OC:...Name the time and place.

alternative dialogue

OC: Fine. I accept.

Ichika: Huh? we haven't even discussed the terms of your victory yet.

OC: Don't want it. I just want to see whose reason is stronger. Yours or mine.

I know it's weird but I made my OC a child. So far the story is only at his first day and i'm still deciding how to get the plot rolling.

He doesn't have to have an 'enemy' persay, but a goal - a clear goal that pushes him beyond what most people would consider 'normal'.

I really can't write my ideas out since my OC would swear off everything just so that he could fly in his IS - like he's become addicted to flying. The sensation of flight outside of an airplane - to climb into the clouds or skim the ocean's surface while flying at 500 mph... not many people would want to give that up. But of course...
Quote:
"Stop flying around like that! You're not a bird! You're here to learn how to pilot an IS to fight!"

"Why? IS are forbidden to be used as tools of war - why learn how to fight with them!"

"You idiot! They are deterrents!"

"...so they ARE tools of war."

"Don't mince words with us, boy! Just do what you're told!"

"You're the ones who 'minced' the words for the Alaska Treaty' and now you're justifying exactly what you've forbidden the rest of the world from using. You're using the IS exactly how you've forbidden them from being used - the only ones mincing words is YOU."

"...enough of this. We are the adults here and he is the child. Look, if you DON'T do what we say, then your family will pay the consequences of your disobedience. You WILL learn how to fight with the IS and you WILL be the fore-runner of our project to make men able to pilot the IS en masse. This is the LAST time we'll talk to you - next time, you won't be able to fathom the pain you'll bring upon yourself and your loved ones because of your selfishness."

That's pretty deep Tempest. You inspired me to give Jordan a goal as well. I just need to think of one.

Jordan is the OC in my fanfiction Infinite Stratos: Young Secrets

1. Not very hard. It's harder to write a female OC, which is why I would condemn male ocs, as they mostly go about the SAME plots OVER AND OVER again.
