I'm currently going through the outline for part two of HiS, looking for weak transitions. Good thing too, because I'm finding a lot. While I've been fixing those however, TLFF (or The Last Fan Fiction) has slowly been resolving itself into a more defined shape in the back of my head.

For those of you who don't know, TLFF is the fan fiction I plan on writing after HiS. It will be my last fan fiction, although I intend to make it so that it contains several installments, and can be added to at will.

When last I mentioned TLFF, I made the grievous error of relating exactly what I thought it would be about. Clearly, I have not learned that my plans change faster than our cat running away from strangers.

For that reason, I am not going to tell you exactly what new form TLFF has taken. It isn't too different, as it still bears the title By Any Other Path, but the setting has been stabilized and the plot opened up wider.

While I won't tell you any specifics, I can fill you in on some general ideas I have. Realize any or all of these may, or may not, be used:
  • Multiple PoV characters. This is almost a given.
  • Multiple timelines. A possibility. Could be interesting, as I've never done it before.
  • Multiple sides of the war. Fairly solid.
  • New units/creatures of Valhalla. Something I'm looking forward to. Let me know if you would prefer to stick with the canon instead.
  • New alliances. An idea I've been toying with. Valkyrie/warriors could shift allegiances. Let me know if you would want to see this.
  • The future. Also something I'm toying with: new generations of warriors, new characters, maybe some older characters have died, soulborg technology is likely incorporated by all, the marro might have spread... etc. Let me know if this sounds interesting.
The reason I'm thinking about multiple timelines is because I don't want to lock myself into anything. My moods fluctuate, and what I want to write fluctuates with them, so I want to be sure I always have something I can write about.

Let me know your thoughts on the above. As always, I'll keep you updated.

New and shifting alliances is definitely a must. I feel like it's a staple of Heroscape that's been somewhat lost over the years
