So back to my fan fiction. For fun I made a list of WiPs, fics I started to write but never finished and fics who were never more than an idea I scibbled down somewhere.
Star Wars: Looking through my harddisk backups I found a file from 1999. It contains worldbuilding notes (6000+ words) and a half-finished fic for a Dark Mirror Universe. The fic fragment doesn't read too bad. I think it was meant as starting point for several other. But it isn't terrible original in its idea and worse I don't know anymore what I wanted to do with it. The concept itself of this Star Wars AU is interesting enough, at least to me. I will keep the file and somewhen in the future I might start over.
Baldur's Gate II: I am a fan of this pc game and its complex storyline is an invitation to play around with the experiences of your player character. I wrote two or three chapters before I became stuck. I'd like to continue working on it. But first I have to find the time to play it to the end.
Wheel of Time: Battle Won, War Lost? is infinitely stalled. I still like the starting point of the story but I don't get a grip on Rand as character. I'm wholly uncertain how he would react in this situation. Whenever I try to immerse myself in the story Egwene starts offering plot twists. It's definitely on ice, probably permanently.
Andromeda: Oh that! I have to start working on High-Jinx. It is due until the end of September. Then there are my Nietzschean Empire ideas. Two versions were battling for supremacy in my mind. Then I rewatched Oroborus and got a third idea!
