Adapting "Soul Frontier" To a Novel. Or Continuing, Rather..

Wed Mar 31, 2010 7:30 pm

I couldn't really stop wondering what the hell happened next in Soul Frontier after reading those first few pages, so I've decided to try to adapt to a novel. I'm currently writing two originals, both of which are near done, so it doesn't seem very far out in terms of realism.
THE ONLY PROBLEMS (Besides the obvious of "what the hell do I do with them"):
a. Community approval. I'd feel rather bad if the community of SNAFU didn't like the idea, of course.
b. Permission. Are Archangel or Aoi even around anymore? 2006 was quite a while ago.
c. The narrator's name. For now I'm going with Richard (What? He just looks like one.), but if either of the creators are still around, I'd like to know what his planned name was.
d. I wonder where they were actually planning to go with the series.....

So yeah. Comments, suggestions, and raeg are welcome.

i wonder why they stopped updating...

UPDATE: I just finished the prologue. So yeah. Lemme know if it's worth posting yet, since it's only about two or three pages of text.

PROLOGUE: https://mail.google.com/mail/?ui=2&ik=7 ... yq6fed0&zw

Probably because they got a life.

I can't tell if that's a joke or not.

a. Community approval.

You don't need to worry about it.

b. Permission.

Don't need to worry about that either, unless you plan to publish this. Fan-fictions (yes you are doing one) are okay. People do it to PpGD and GT all the time.

c. The narrator's name.

Does it matter?

d. I wonder where they were actually planning to go with the series.....

Most likely not.

Lemme know if it's worth posting yet, since it's only about two or three pages of text.

Wouldn't know since I haven't seen it.

Although it would be cool to be published (Publicity for SNAFU or some half-assed excuse along those lines), it's never been a very big concern of mine.
Cool then. I just finished a character chart that also kinda shows where I plan to go. Seeing as this is technically a fan fiction (I shiver) I guess I'll try to post the chapters every here and there.

Prologue will be posted sometime tomorrow in it's fancily-formatted glory. Don't bug me about it.

Learn to not double- or triple-post. This is what the edit button is for.

Evidentally, I know how to edit, it's just a bit more useful so people can see that there's been an update.

On the other hand, this literature section is a bit untouched, disappointingly....

Double-posting is against forum rules, regardless.

I see no update. Just a Gmail ink that I refuse to click on.

Why don't you just post it in here?
