Not sure on who wrote it, though.
Yeah, It's good, surprisingly. And it's seems like Cecilia got a spotlight, which is rare. Desu wa!

Fanfic spotted...

Secrets the Fire has Revealed

Judging from the Summary; the spotlight's on Houki, finallly a new fanfic concentrating on her.

Spoiler for for Spoiler:


But perhaps you make it like this

> OC met Canon Characters (CC) this also known as Establishing Original Character Moment.

> More interaction with CC, this interaction will slowly humanize and characterize your OC, whether they're hero, anti-hero or villain. Keep in mind, Villain does not equal Antagonist. Light Yagami and Lelouch Lamperouge is some example of Villain Protagonist and Anti-hero Protagonist.

> Tell readers about OC's background (Perhaps not in first chapter, maybe second or third). Your OC's action should have a motive, in this case, their hatred toward IS explained whether by flashback or exposition, but you may prefer Flashback. So, this preview might became this part.

> Reaction from CC about those, this is important. Whether they sympathize with OC or whatever you think suit the plot.

If you put it that way, the reader will think "What's their motive? Who are they?" and keep reading.

Remember, as I said before, full OC story is hard to do well. If you want to do such story, you should put all your might in it, and writing fanfiction became less fun that way. Of course if you succeed making a story that is good according to reader, the satisfaction is priceless.

In the end, it's still up to you
Okay, I'm almost ready on getting my prologue posted on Fanfic.net. But I'm kinda concerned on how it's gonna look on it. I used Microsoft Word to make it and it's in DocX format. Fanfic.net said that DocX will not be converted into publishable storys/chapters. If anyone here has an account on Fanfic.net I need some help here guys.

Zero, what did you use to write your fanfic?

I use Microsoft word 2007.

What exactly did you do to get your Fanfic published into story/chapter format if the file is in DocX format?

I think there's some misunderstanding, Jak. DOCX in FF.net is [Document eXchange Program], meaning that you [share it with another author (usually beta) by establishing a connection with them]. Of course, you can't post them as story, usually the beta just highlighted the mistakes to point it out.

DocX in Microsoft Office 2007 means [Document XML Embedded], meaning that it's just fine upload them, but you had to click o[Story] option instead of o[DOCX].

I myself use MSO 2003 because MSO 2007 is way too bothersome in terms of interface.

Besides....my computer is ancient...(Celeron 1.2 GHz, 256 RAM, 16 MB N-Force VGA, 6 GB Hardisk, 158k EVDO) and MSO 2007 is greedy.

Hope this could help.

Okay, but is it possible to add chapters to the story even though the file format is in DocX?

TO answer you, I'll quote FF.net themselves

Quote:
Notes/Compatible Files
Life: documents will live/stay in the system for 60 days. After 60 days, stale documents will be removed. Document Life resets when the document has been edited.

Always double space between paragraphs. Otherwise, text will be bunched together when displayed.

Make sure the file has the proper file extension. For example, a Microsoft Word document should always have a ".doc" or ".docx" at the end of the file name.

There is an upload file size limit of 9MB and we do not support password-protected files.

List of Supported Document/File Formats:

1. # LibreOffice/OpenOffice/NeoOffice (.odt, .sxw)
2. + Microsoft Word (.doc, .docx)
3. + Microsoft Works (.wps)
4. + WinWord, WordPad (.rtf)
5. + StarOffice (.sdw)
6. + WordPerfect (.wp, .wpd)
7. + HTML (.htm, .html)
8. * Plain Text, NotePad (.txt)

# = Enhanced support where basic layout styles (bold, italics, underlines, centering) will be preserved. Highly Recommended.
+ = Enhanced support where basic layout styles will be preserved. Recommended.
* = Basic support. Not recommended. Use as last resort.
Hope this help, yes, I had exprerience with Open office and Libre Office too, but in the end, I returned to good ol' MSO 2003.

Yeah, that helps man. And as a show of thanks, here's the Prologue to my Fanfic. Recommend on reading the Plot first (for first time readers).

Spoiler for Plot:

And now...
Spoiler for IS: Project Silverback Prologue:


Had to censor it a bit for safety sake.

Hmm, the characters are well introduced, and the plot seems ok. Although, it seems like a huge chunk of text thrown at me, I think it would be better had you divided it in half, or at least in smaller portions.

Now that's I'd call PLOT, starting with exposition and kick with a BANG! Awesome action.

Actually, I recommenced you to erase that ~FLASHBACK~ exclamation because it's killing the mood swing effect, a couple of readers told me so (they said Flashback tag is corny, so I had to erase them from "Sacred Twins").

No, even without tag, the reader will knew, since the storytelling is incredibly good since the beginning.

You're able to establish the OCs without SINGLE CC appeared, and that's really an achievement I honestly cannot imitate.

P.S. DAMN IT FF.NET IS DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is an OC story that's set in the IS universe, but coming from the perspective of a group of former mercenaries in IS Society, not IS Academy. So there's a very, very strong possibility that they won't.

Due to various reasons, I was unable to view the WINcest fanfic until now...

...and after less than a minute, I don't think my body can take it any longer.

Excuse me gentlemen while I, "blow-dry my hair".

WOAH COOL BUDDY, you're really a brave challenger. I Support you 100% with my heart, Jak.

On a side note, here's a sneak peek of Chapter 4, I wrote it with 100% originality of my mid (the plot is the same though....for now)

Spoiler for Warning for twincest:



Spoiler for Crazy awesome:

Damn it Ichika, there's no misunderstanding whatsoever! you just missing the point!

Currently sending a full chapter to my unofficial Beta Blitz 1/2 and wait for his comment, then I'll update.

I'm not sure about grammar (since mine are broken to begin with ) but the formating is fine if you ask me.

BTW, who's the main heroine? Us Fanfic Writer often pushed a heroine in front of others (Most people choose Char(lotte), some choose Houki, some choose Laura, in case of me, I choose Madoka).

It's rare to find one with complete balance like canon (Tier 1: Houki, CHar, Laura. Tier 2: Cecilia, Ling, Kanzashi). It would be good if you can make a balanced one too.
