I've created this Thread to try to centralize some resources for aspiring fan-fiction writers, to save them having to hunt through the whole site.

There are samples and excerpts below of works found here to help lend inspiration and offer encouragement to you that you are not alone in wanting to Write! :)

Please don't post anything more then excerpts meant to show encouragement or advice/tips/tricks as I think we can all agree that Fan-Fiction works deserve their own Dedicated thread, right?

Advice & Tricks for my fellow Writers

Alien: Omega Terminus (FanFic)

Alien: Endymion **Sample Chapter**

426 B.C. (Fan Fiction) by Facehuggers!

Alien: Viral by deftones1986

Alien: Infernum by Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Blackwinter-witch yes please for the swap :)

This new story is running riot on my imagination (in a good way) and although I will be come back to that original story I will need to review/re-assess many of the characters in particular....so this may be vastly different when I return lol

Blackwinter-witch how goes Manticore by the way, any news for us all eagerly awaiting :) ?!

Swap-out accomplished. I had both posted until I verified things with you, but have done the swap-out now. :)

ALIEN: Manticore is going very well, albeit slowly.

The facts of the matter are that keeping track of all the details and characters and critters as I write the whole climax-scene takes a fair bit of time per-page as I double-check things as I go along to ensure:
I don't forget something.
Don't llow continuity-errors to creep in.
To ensure a properly realistic feel/sense of things, etc..
I'm working on it right now, and it is slowly and steadily coming along. :D

The final edit won't take very long at all, a couple days at most, even with assorted housemeows 'helping'. :D

THEN, it will be DONE, along with the two short-stories, and all three will be published on Scribd and announced here so folks shouldn't have any trouble finding them. :)

Blackwinter-witch would you like to add this fantastic short story to our list :)

 

Blackwinter-witch

Aug-06-2017 4:06 PM

IRaptus

Done. :D

Always happy to add to the list of works found here. :)

Also, just to update:
ALIEN: Manticore is in the final stretch of laying down content, slow and steady as I got a reminder about continuity the other day watching ST: Into Darkness where if you pay attention, they really screwed up continuity in regards to beaming and shields....apparently the Enterprise has a Carol Marcus shaped gap in it's shields. :D

So, yeah, I might be slow and careful, and that's because I don't wanna hand flaws like that example above out in my works. I might be writing Fan-Fic, but I want to make sure I've done my Human best in it. :)

Blackwinter-witch excellent, can't wait to read the finished product.

You are writing more than just fanfic, you are writing for the future of the franchise IMO! I think we can all agree that your  dedication for perfection and pursuit of technical continuity is on another level.

FOX if you are watching..... look here

ALIEN: Manticore **Excerpts & Advice Points**

TY for saying!! That's a really wonderful thing to hear!! (HUG)

Hopefully, FOX might look-in and see what can be done, and should be done (regarding proper attention to continuity), there's so much potential in this franchise, and they just don't seem to see it...and they keep hiring writers who don't seem to really have any knowledge of the Lore, or give a damn about it.

I will say that regarding The Alien itself, I am taking an entirely different approach than what's been exposed via ALIEN: Covenant...
And in ALIEN: Manticore, the crew gets to play hide-and-seek with the REAL Big Chap, not some cheap knock-off cooked up by a psychotic android with daddy issues. ;)

Hello fellow writers! May I please ask that when posting new threads with your excellent fan fiction stories that you add (fanfic) into your topic title please.

This is mainly so that when an official Alien: TITLE is announced/released it is very distinguishable in the topics

Kind Regards

Works for me, keeps things simpler and neater. :)

Just to say ALIEN: Manticore is steadily getting closer to completion and final editing. I have the story climax all figured out, double-checked and mapped so now it's time to drop the characters into the sharp and nasty end of things after they find out some Things Man Is Better Off Not Knowing. :D

thank you Blackwinter-witch :) 

Have you had a chance to check out the Advent and Phobos clips? Perhaps some tasty morsels of info or inspiration in them for you??

Blackwinter-witch

Aug-09-2017 11:34 PM

not yet, but I do them bookmarked so I don't lose them :)

TY for the reminder, I'll have a lok at them when I'm done for the day, as that's when the brain really absorbs new info best, for me, anyways. :)

I Raptus

Aug-17-2017 8:53 PM

ali81 all good. Blackwinter Witch has very nicely created this thread (which is a featured article) as a master portal to everyone's fan fiction threads.

So if people come here they can peruse through them all without digging through the All topics link :)

Your link will be added to the original post (above) shortly

TY for flagging the spammer and good point on the thread-bump...
Nothing so bad they're not useful for something, I guess. :D
