I feel like an idiot for asking because its supposed to be my story. But I am having a hard time thinking of a reason for this.

What would be a good reason for light elves and dark elves to go into war?

I really want to have something like this but right now the concept is so unclear to me and its driving me crazy. So I thought "why not" ask for help.


1. Culture clash.
2. Taking back a Holy Land
3. Because of allies
4. Awesome resource found
5. Trade rights

Culture clash fits the story extremely well. Thank you.

Kinda complicated situation I need help fixing holes in:

There are several city-state kingdoms in a fantasy world. Jacinth and Ametrine don't like each other due to their stance on a neighboring kingdom and they are both engineering a cold war and trying to keep what they're doing secret.

Jacinth advocates slavery/indentured servitude and has hired a woman, Nyira, and and her slave, Kel, to go find a magic relic called the Macariastone, which can create and control undead. In finding the stone, the are attacked by an undead and Kel created a portal to our world and was severely wounded.

Some doctor treats Kel and learns about the other world, Nyira tries to get Kel back because he belongs to her, and the undead monster later abducts Kel and some people have to rescue him.

I'm not sure what Nyira does when or before he gets abducted, how the doctor survives, what powers the undead monster can do that some specialists need to be involved, or why the monster doesn't end up killing everyone once it gets to our world with the other two.

Askingb for help again.
muninnbird
i've been having some trouble figuring out something for one of my characters, who's life/backstory i've been working on for a while now.

he's a mexican-american living in louisiana, the youngest of seven brothers, who married and had a daughter with an american woman who later divorced him. i've got a lot of the details for this character figured out, except for one.

as he was originally, before i made changes to his life (before the whole thing with the ex-wife and daughter he was a character i used in a role play), he was a werewolf. i've got his story set up in such a way that i'd only need to change a few things about his childhood and whatnot for this to be true, but i'm having a really hard time figuring out how to make it work. i'd like for him to be a werewolf 'cause i love them and i have no other werewolf characters, i'm just stuck on how to get it to work.

i feel like if i'm going to make him a werewolf then i'd want there to be something more to his story, something to give the fantasy element context i guess. the issue here being that i don't know what kind of setting i want to use for that. his story is contemporary (set no earlier than the 60's i'd say, though i haven't yet figured out an exact time frame for it), and i'd want it to be low-fantasy. as in, nothing too out there like elaborate magic or dragons or whatever. something much more grounded, even "gritty."

i've been trying to figure this out for a while with no luck. i just don't know how to explain away something as obviously magical/fantasy-esque as werewolves in a more realistic setting... but i can't write out anything more for this character (as i'm working on writing down descriptions for him, his family, and the characters around them) until i figure out whether or not he actually is a werewolf.

here's a link to my weebly site where i've started writing about these characters--the one i've mentioned here is Russell: http://muncharacters.weebly.com/

Given the region, he'd probably have vofun related powers.

So I need help in describing this monster... Ehem,

"Suddenly it’s whole head split into two forming a large mouth with fangs that reminds me of that Piranha movie." (this sucks ikr coz I can't imagine a monster)
and the name of the monster? All I could think about is 'Nightmare'
Origins? They came from nightmares of humans and even the dead, lol
I also can't consistently make the character's personality as is like the main character is originally dark and gloomy but he keeps turning to a more refreshing guy, he's unpredictable even to me!

I have a giant story, I actually have a protagonist and an antagonist and I want the focus to be on them on this story, but I have so many "B Stories" I would love to intertwine into the story so you can understand their universe and how it works. But The B story would have so little to do with the A story except for obvious elements. I guess I should explain more deeper.

The story takes place about three hundred years into the future. A man was made into the perfect human and copies were made to look different from him. To sex, ethnicity, eye color, and age. They all looked different. In a explosion in the factory 40% escaped while 30% were posed as regular humans to give people a substitute to a family member they lost. The replacements looks just like they ones they are covering for and don't even know they are not real. As the A Story focuses on The Protagonist and him finding each clone (The 40%) because each of them held a piece of his lost memory, the B story is on the 30% that are the people who think they are actual human and will most likely never be involved in the A Story. Is it possible? Can I make chapter on their point of view? Should I just make Canon stories that can be attach and detached how I please?


---------

A second story is a FanFic of Pokemon. It will show the darker side of the world and takes place 10 years before the adventures of Ash/Red (Which I haven't decided which universe I should take because I love both and could do so much with either) In this story I have no idea if I should do First Person or Third. I am strong in both but I feel myself always wanted to change between the two. I love the idea of the protagonist telling you his story and what exactly is going in his mind, but then I would love to tell you his expressions and his mannerisms I won't be able to do in First Person......Or if that is possible I would do First person. What do you guys think for a horror-ish take on a giant franchise, First or Third? I know this might be asking for a little too much but what POV is better for a horror story?
