TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry 12

It's been awhile since my last update. Surprisingly, not much has changed, but I still wanted to let you all know where I was.

Horizon in Sight has progressed nicely, and is nearly finished. The development, that is. The writing comes later. I have one last subplot I need to plug into the outline, then I need to smooth the outline out with transitions and such, and we'll be ready to start the writing. A very rough estimate would put the release date somewhere around July.

Writing will be temporarily disrupted from now until May 9, as I do several things I have never done before in my life: get on a plane, and visit the east coast. I'll be flying down to South Carolina, then heading to Florida, for two weeks. It's highly unlikely much writing will get done, though I might be able to do a bit on the plane (if they still allow that sort of thing...).

The 'specs' for HiS are a single fan fiction, likely of average length or slightly longer (so 90+ pages), complete with map.

I also wanted to give you something to speculate on while I'm gone. Below is a partial character list for the characters which appear in HiS. This is fairly solid, and not very likely to change. I'd be interested to see what roles you think the characters might play.

  • Dan Beorm - A Mariedian on the prison moon Isadora.
  • Ana Karithon - A healer from Toril.
  • Gideon Carr - A trusted warrior under Vydar.
  • Laelia - A warrior of Einar with a personal hatred of Drow.
  • Trela Imber - A healer from Toril, summoned by Jandar.
  • Jaseff Imber - A healer from Toril, summoned by Jandar (though why I can't imagine).
  • Sharwin Wildborn - A Caster summoned by Ullar.
  • Aer Ilisyna - A mysterious figure rumored to have some connection to Vydar.
Unfortunately, there will be no Vervalsing, Gormal, Nargshir, or Francois in this tale. Well, Francois might be there, but he's far from an important character. I might manage to get a scene in with Vervalsing as well. The other two will likely not show up, however.

As a final word, I have a challenge for my readers. HiS requires a character of medium importance for a good number of chapters, and I have yet to decide who that character is. I would like it to be a HS figure. So since I haven't decided yet, I figured I would let anyone who was interested throw their vote in. What HS character would you like to see? There is some detail:
  • This character is described as 'Vydar's loyal warrior.' So they must serve Vydar, and serve Vydar beyond all else. They will follow Vydar's orders, period.
  • This is the character Vydar sends to collect something important. So aside from being trusted, this character needs to possess the opposable thumbs necessary for picking an object up.
Let me know what character you would like to see, and if it fits with the story, I might use them.

Otonashi is a good choice. A soulborg or spy is obviously going to serve Vydar to a T, so a more human character from a multi-general faction could be more interesting. (This applies to James Murphy as well)

I did neglect to say that this character needs to be human, or at least capable of speech. I don't know if I could pull off Dund... I'd have to use telepathy, and things would probably get really weird.
