Okay, now that we have a full team, I'm going to lay down a few ground rules

Rules

No abrupt heel face turns: By this, I mean that if someone before you has written in a character or a plot twist or a story element, you may not abruptly do away with it. If you feel the need to kill off a character or change something, make sure that it is in flow with the story, and please be prepared if need be to explain your decision

Be respectful of your fellow writers: This means no flaming or unneccessary harshness with whatever someone else wrote. Let's keep our critiques constructive

No editing another person's work: I'm sure I don't need to say it, but I will anyway. No messing with what another person wrote. If they wrote something you find hard to work with, just work around it. This is meant to be a challenge, so take it up.

Don't write more or less than 500 words: This is a somewhat flexible rule. I just want to make sure that we're all making equal contributions

Don't take longer than a week to write your turn: This is also a somewhat flexible rule. I just don't want us to get lazy

And Above All, HAVE FUN!


Members of the Gang and the order in which they Write

I will bold the name of the person whose turn it is, and be sure to notify you when it's your turn


1. cara_fairy

2. killah cupcake

3. Ophelianime

4. JasperSethK

Procedure
Once you have finished writing your turn, please pm me the piece and I will post it in a seperate thread. Let's keep this thread for think tank purposes only.
Once I have posted the piece, I will notify the next person whose turn it is.
If at any time you're curious as to who is currently writing, visit this thread and look to see whose name is enlarged

How would this be going? Are we supposed to PM you with an entry first or do we just express interest and then you start things off?

I think that an entry would be a good idea, but my main goal is to get a variety of writers, so don't worry about what to submit

I'd love to work with a few other people. I've never actually done a collaborative piece before. I think it would broaden my horizons. So if you're interested, just let me know, and I'll PM you a chunk of the story I've been working on. I've only ever really written fiction before. Also I seldom have grammatical/spelling errors. Haha. Hard to believe, right? Yeah...well just let me know and I can PM you a little bit of it!

*pokes fingers together* This sounds like fun. Can I be included, please? >.< Never done this before. Er..background info: I tend to write quirky editorials and narratives or deep psychological stories. In all cases, I'm only grammar nazi with my own work.
i.e. I won't kill someone if they have a comma splice. 3nodding

Yay! ^ ^ A question(or two) though! Who's starting? And do we write in the same order as our slot?

Alright, so plot? I find it helps to think of a setting first. After that a plot naturally follows. Do we want something set in the future, LIKE SKY PIRATES :O. Or in the past, LIKE A FAIRY TALE <3, or something now-ish? Should it be apocalyptic, a narrative, a fable? Sci-fi? @_@

okay I'm going to throw out a few plot ideas for discussion

If we want to go the route of the Sci-Fi, Here's an idea
From what I've heard, scientists have discovered a planet that could be terraformed, but it would take around forty years to get there. So if we want to work with that, we could go two ways: ten year old astronauts, or families sent to space. Both plotlines would require a spaceship that doubles as a bio dome.
Any thoughts on this plot?

Or we could do that thing that it's like frozen sleeping, where you don't age and sleep for the entire trip? I've seen that happen on several tv shows.
