- Saint Roku University -

Saint Roku University is a massive fanfiction/fanart project that could perhaps be best summarized as Avatar: TLA/LoK meets How I Met Your Mother in a college setting (though less comedy and perhaps more Gillmore Girls-like drama/friendship/feelings...?). It is NOT a retelling of any Avatar story but rather a huge love letter and narrative reply to the Avatar series, exploring themes concerning young adulthood. It is currently planned to be re-worked into an original series.
You can find the full art gallery below, and the story starts here: destiny-smasher.deviantart.com…

Esteemed

My next project after SRU is finished, 'Esteemed' will follow a more focused story about Toph Beifong grappling with the stresses of adulthood as she works to protect Republic City, ward off Yakone and his gang, and figure out how on earth to be a good mother. The story will also explore the lives of Toph's friends and their families.

:icondownright-fierce:
- DownRight Fierce -
A graphic novel concept directly inspired by the Street Fighter franchise (and fighting games in general), this would follow the story of Nishiko, a rash, violent, but passionate fighter who learns about the consequences of obsession and violence.

Currently being written out as a prose novel, I'd still like to work comic pages into the story.

Chapter 3 Draft:
:star::star::star::star-half::star-empty:
---
- Black Outs - (Another Code: R)
A slice-of-life short story inspired by a visual mystery novel released on the Wii.

:star::star::star::star::star:
---
- Versatility - (The Walking Dead Game)
"I did it for you, Clem. For us. We're free now."

Chapter 6:
:star::star-half::star-empty::star-empty::star-empty:
---
- What We Learned at Rokudai -
A sequential, slice-of-life young adult fiction inspired by characters and concepts from Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra. Currently being modified and revised from its original form as a fanfic (SRU).
:icons-r-u:

First chapter being sorted out; a bunch of brand new scenes have been written and various scenes from the beginning have been revised.

----
- The Focused / Mud, Sweat, and Tears -

A story being written as two separate stories at once. One version will follow Yatra and Kiwidinok in an original sci-fi fantasy world; their story will be inspired by AtLA, and video games like Bastion, Journey, and The Last of Us.

The fanfic version: A weary Katara and Toph travel across a world ravaged by the Phoenix King. The Battle of Sozin's Comet was lost. Avatar Aang is dead. Now the two are all each other has left in a world that has no place for them.

Both versions will contain a lot of the same text and ideas, but will be tweaked to tell two different versions: one as an original story, one as a 'fanfic AU,' thereby demonstrating how writing AU fiction can be a great creative springboard for making original works.

Chapter 2:
:star-empty::star-empty::star-empty::star-empty::star-empty:
----
:iconesteemed-beifongs:
- Esteemed -
Exploring the life of Chief Toph Beifong and the weight of her responsibilities during her time in Republic City as a police officer and a mother -- as well as the life of her daughter, Lin, who grew up to follow in her mother's footsteps.

{On Hiatus for probably a long time still}

EDIT: Stuff on the way: DownRight Fierce #3, Another Code:R short story (like 20-25 pages), Versatility #5, some kind of Rokudai something

Feedback has been much slower in 2014 than in 2013, but for anyone curious, here's what's coming soon from me.

1) DownRight Fierce may have failed its Kickstarter, but I am redoubling my efforts and working on writing out its planned story (and extra scenes) into a prose novel. I'm considering re-doing a Kickstarter with a much smaller goal in order to fund SOME comic pages, thus creating a hybridization of prose novel with certain scenes also depicted in comic form. There's still a gallery of art on the project here, and I even commissioned an original theme song.
I have two draft chapters online with a third on the way. You can read the first chapter here, and the second here.

2) I've also been working on What We Learned at Rokudai, the re-purposed version of What I Learned at SRU. This has included brand new scenes from the chronological start of the story; hashing out altered backstories, character names, and planned relationships; editing pre-existing scenes. I would like to start uploading some of this stuff in the next month, but I'm still deciding what order to put some of the earlier scenes in. I'm still periodically commissioning pieces for this, too -- expect a New Year's themed groupshot coming, well, hopefully in time for New Year's!
Oh, and in case you missed it, I commissioned some Halloween costumes for the cast:

3) I'm a decent ways into writing a standalone short story based on the visual mystery novel Another Code: R (sequel to Trace Memory for those in NA). Taking place two years after Another Code: R's story, it will be a slice-of-life fic that fans of the game series will appreciate most, but that everyone else can just read as a standalone, down-to-earth sort of short story about introspection and dealing with failure. I'm commissioning another piece from Shannon Ehrola for this, in the same way I did for my Walking Dead story Versatility (speaking of which, I don't think I'm finished with that yet but I need to replay through the story in December before I finish it).

As for stuff I'm recommend people check out, Steins;Gate is an anime I've been revisiting recently (watching through it back in the summer); I also watched through both seasons of House of Cards, a Netflix-only show, which is a fascinating character story themed around American politics (more interesting than it sounds if you give it a chance); today I watched through all off Over the Garden Wall, a fascinating and charming animated mini-series; Book 4 of Korra has been exceeding my pessimistic expectations -- I very much disliked most of Book 2 and even Book 3 I found to be predictable, forced, and boring to my tastes, but Book 4 is finally back to "I would recommend this to adults" territory, so good on the writing team for that. For graphic novels, ones I'd recommend that I've read over the past few months I've read through Seconds (by Brayn Lee O'Malley), In Real Life (Doctorow & Wang), Boxers and Saints (Gene Yang), and the new ATLA comic arc 'The Rift' is the best one so far by far.

As for games, I've been playing a lot of Smash Bros. on the 3DS as I warm up for the Wii U release, Binding of Isaac on PS4, and I'm looking forward to the Mario Kart 8 DLC next week, as well as Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and Kingdom Hearts 2.5.

In general, life has been less stressful lately, which has allowed me more time to focus on writing, and while my goals and plans lay scattered at my feet, I'm still filling blank pages where I can. A big thank you to those of you who do still leave feedback now and again! It still means a lot, especially when I learn of new readers to SRU, even now after all has been said and done for that version of the story.

Hey, Eddy, if I may call you that. I'm working on a fan fiction that involves, both of the Avatar series, Star Wars Rebels, and Defiance. I was wondering if you wouldn't mind having a look at my rough draft of the first chapter. Since you seem to be the expert on writing Avatar-related literature, I was hoping you could give me some valuable input. If yes, I'll send you the draft after you message me back. If no, I'm sorry to have bothered you.

Good luck! I have too much on my plate to focus on other people's stories right now, to be honest. ^_^;
Have fun, and write for yourself, not what you think others want. Write what you yourself want to read. That would be my advice.
