Of course, it depends on where you go from there (because the shadow Pokémon concept isn't used that frequently in journey fics -- not to mention, like I said, potential subplots involving Cipher), but you'll probably want to be aware that this general idea has been done before. Or at least that it sounds like an entire subgenre instead of an idea by itself, so it's difficult to judge whether or not it'll be interesting.

    That being said, what is Cipher doing in this whole thing?
    I have a little bit better idea now. It's been about six or seven years since Ethan, Silver, and Lyra left on their journeys. Another kid was supposed to start his journey but an accident happened and he was hospitalized for awhile and lost use of his legs until now. Then one day Team Rocket came back and attacked the town wanting revenge on Ethan. Ethan got defeated and was taken prisoner so the new kid goes on a journey to save his friend and eventually the regions of Johto and Kanto. There will be a shadow pokemon legendary or two but I don't want to spoil who they are yet.
    Oh and some other stuff that would happen would be this:
    He gets the Kanto starters from Oak so he can raise them to catch strong pokemon
    He meets the protagonist from XD who teaches him the art of snagging

    I'm thinking about a family guy-pokemon crossover using the DP cast, are these pretty accurate? Also any additional suggestions for characters?

    Ash-Peter
    Dawn-lois
    Brock-Brian
    Pikachu-Chris
    Piplup-Meg
    Croagunk-Stewie
    Paul-James woods/Giant chicken
    Cynthia-Jesus/God
    Ursula-That other piano teacher
    Zoey-Bonnie
    Conway-Quagmire

    I have this new idea for a fan fic. The main character(don't know his official name) from B/W 2 gets frozen by Ghetsis before N arrived. Kyurem absorbed Reshiram and becomes Reshiram-Kyurem. Ghetsis and Kyurem freeze the whole northern Unova region(like they did to Opelucid). Meanwhile back in Aspertia, one of the guy's and Hugh's friends finds out about the fate of his friend and sets off on a journey with his loyal Riolu to find Herbert. Who might be their only hope. Will he find him or will Unova be forced to obey Ghetsis for an eternity? Besides the new character I might have a girl like Yancy be a main character.

    Here's my idea for a fic based in the Pokemon Conquest universe. I started a thread asking about this, but it really doesn't merit one, and I have asked bobandbill to close that down. I'll post here on the off chance a few more people see it, and for the sake of my own archives.

    Okay, here we go: I thought a fic based in the Conquest universe would be something rather similar to what I normally write about in my original fics, warriors and kingdoms and feudalism and such. I have the rough idea of a plot running through my head.

    Basically, the idea is, in this fic, the Hero character never showed up to become the Warlord of Aurora, and Nobunaga spread across Ransei "like a black tide", conquering almost all the kingdoms, and many of the warlords who did not join Nobunga have been forced into hiding.

    The story opens when Nobunaga crushes Yoshihiro and Pugilis, the last kingdom before he ruled the entire region. He then retreats to Dragnor, to link with the legendary pokemon, leaving his allies to rule over the rest of the region.

    Shingen, Kenshin, and their entourages (Kanetsugu, Ada, Kunoichi and Yukimura) are hiding in a cave on the Terrera/Cragspur border, and they hear about Motochika gathering warriors for a rebellion in the southwest. Yukimura and his Charizard fly out to meet him and pledge their support.

    Motochika plans to use guerrilla warfare to move his force of warlords up through Ransei, claiming only a few key kingdoms to sever Nobunga's connection to the legendary pokemon. His battle plan is brutal and efficient, and he plans to use Shingen and Kenshin's literal firepower to lay waste to central Ransei to buy his group some time. Yukimura secretly has misgivings about this approach, and tries to figure out another way, flying all over Ransei to rally allies to the cause.

    In Cragspur, Terrera and Illusio, Shingen and Kenshin begin a war with the No, Ujiyasu and Kotaro, Nobunaga's appointed regional governors.

    Far to north, Mitsuhide defects from Nobunaga's army, leaving in search of a legendary pokemon of his own to combat Nobunga's growing megalomania and dementia, abandoning Gracia and Nixtrom in the process.

    Basically, this fic would be drawn from elements from "The Rebel" and "Tragic Determination" special episodes, with both Motochika and Mitsuhide trying to thwart Nobunga simultaneously, but with vastly different approaches.

    It would also bear a lot of resemblences to the Songs of Ice and Fire, probably because I've always seen Shingen and Kenshin as a little bit like Robert Baratheon and Ned Stark. Their rebelion against Nobunga seems a lot like Robert's rebelion against the Targaryens. It would also allow me to practice my political intrigue and subplot writing skills, along with the approach of several plots happening at one time, and with the plans of several characters all stepping on each other and overlapping, tripping each other up.

    It would be told from five POVs, Yukimura's, Mitsuhide's, Motochika's, Kanetsugu or Kenshin's, and Ranmaru's. Ranmaru would have a very minor role, serving only as a way for the reader to see Nobunaga slowly slipping into deeper and deeper madness. The way I see it, linking with the legendary pokemon is no simple task, and would require much ritual cleansing and aesteicism. Ranmaru's POV would showcase that.

    My other big worry is that Yukimura's personality is far too much like the protagonist of my previous Journeymen fics, Cole. They even use a Charizard as their "mascot". I can't give Yukimura a different partner, because one of the reasons he is so vital to the story is his ability to fly over Ransei. Cole was created long before Conquest came out, but... I don't know.

    So, does anyone see creative potential here? Would it be worth a shot?

    Shortened just for space's sake. While I have not played Conquest and don't plan on it, this fic sounds interesting. I always thought that stories from those time eras were good to look at. With it being told from five different perspectives you have the chance to show off every side and then some of certain characters, points, etc.

    My other big worry is that Yukimura's personality is far too much like the protagonist of my previous Journeymen fics, Cole.
    Have you ever written a fic with a different main character? It isn't too hard to distinguish between them. Once you get writing and set their personality they will deviate from each other quite nicely. Try writing up a rough draft and just read it over. Maybe ask some people to look it over as well.

    It's not that I haven't written different characters before. I have three novel-length sagas in original fiction (see signature). Three separate and distinct worlds, three separate and distinct protagonists. What I'm worried about are the obvious similarities between Yukimura and Cole. Not only do they have similar mentalities and similar tastes in pokemon, they even look similar. This is an unfortunate coincidence, because Cole came into being in early 2011, long before I knew about Conquest and Yukimura.

    I also fear that readers who have read both fics will draw these obvious parallels and say "Oh, you're just writing another Cole fic, but in Ransei." I really don't want to go the AU route, despite Conquest being a pokemon AU. What I really mean is, I don't want to create a Cole AU. Once I really get rolling, I'll probably be able to make key differentiations between the two, but in the early days, those are certainly the hurdles I'll hit.

    Well, I've got an idea for a fic so I shall post it. It's in a spoiler because A) spoilers are cool and B) I dunno, maybe it's big?

        Spoiler:- Legendary:


    Well, that’s all I have for now. Well, I’ve actually got more but that’s all jumbled and not well thought out. So for now, thanks for reading this . . . thoughts, comments, mindless hate-filled bashing? Come at me

    I think that it's probably a bad idea to approach a character with the intent of making them a Mary Sue, unless it's a satire fic. And I know, Riolu is only there for the first chapter, but there are ways to make him out to be a kindhearted person that everyone likes without making him into a Sue. Just because a character fits those two criteria does not mean they have to be a Sue. If you flesh out their backstory, give them reasons for being the way they are, being remembered for the things they did, then they aren't really a Sue. If you just say "everyone loves this character because reasons," then yes, that's a tip-off for sue-ishness, but it's always something to be avoided.

    This is a quick idea I had while daydreaming today:

    A boy in Unova (let's call him Luke) wakes up one day to find that he has been turned into a Lucario, for some unfathomable reason. He and his sister (let's call her Anna) are pretty irked about this, so they go visit the village quack, who, although he has a reputation for being completely crazy, is quite knowledgable on magic, medicine, and other various bits that may help Luke return to his human self. However, when they arrive at the village quack's house, they find several men in black clothes and masks kidnapping him, though they are too afraid to confront them themselves. Even more irked that their only chance of returning Luke to his original state has been taken away from them, they set out on a journey in search of the village quack. However, as they go on, they begin to unravel some secrets about why Luke was turned into a Lucario, who the men who kidnapped the village quack, and the village quack's past life...

    So that's basically the backbone of the story. I think this will basically be in the form of a journey fic, though I'm not sure whether I should have Anna challenge the gyms or not - it seems a bit random for her to do so, really, but otherwise I think the story will be slightly too bland. I've got more inside my head about the identities of the masked men and the village quack, but I haven't actually got everything laid down in an orderly fashion. I do want Luke to be the narrator, though, whether it's in first person or third person.

    What would anyone think of a Mortal Instruments/Pokemon crossover? The plot would involve something like the heroes of the Mortal Instruments chasing down a Greater Demon that escapes through a 'special' Portal. However Palkia does some interdimensional space travel stuff and the demon and the heroes would be stranded in the Pokemon World. Meanwhile, the demon would make a deal with Giratina to use the Griseous Orb (which as it turns out is made of adamas*) in order to create the weapon it was searching for ... and stuff happens.

    * Adamas, as anyone who's read the Mortal Instruments knows, is the metal which the weapons of demon hunters (the Nephilim/Shadowhunters) are made of.

    Your input?

    EDIT: Actually, I've started work on this fic already. I need a name for it though, its working title is "Pokemon + The Mortal Instruments".

    Here is an idea for a HG/SS based fan fic but has more plot.
    Blizzard Flames:
    Three teens leave Newbark Town on a quest to become the strongest trainers in Johto. One is pure and innocent. One is mean and will do almost anything to get his way. The other is a kind boy who isn't afraid of doing something unless it is against the rules. While on their journey they come across Team Rocket who is plotting to gain control of the legendaries bird so that their leader, Giovanni will return. The trainers must work together to defeat Team Rocket before Johto is destroyed.
    They will be collecting badges and those kind of things before Team Rocket starts to be a serious threat.

    No offense, but that's basically the storyline of HGSS, only with three protagonists instead of one.

    Anyway, I've got two new Fic ideas right now. I'll put them in spoilers so that they're easier to tell apart.

    Not exactly a storyline, but a general idea--Conquest as Valhalla-esque afterlife. It's the modern era, as evidented by the computers and airships and such, but those things have been brought by the newer arrivals, and the ancient warlords who rule Ransei continue their battles from their lifetimes, for all eternity.

    Of course, there's also the theory postulated that it's just plain the modern era and Ransei has greater ties to its past than other regions.

    Here's an idea I've already started on actually, but want to see if there is interest before I put more time into this before fixing up my other fics.

    Moving (Working Name)
    Pokemon
    Adventure
    Rated T

    A powerful enemy arises. One that can drive even the great Arceus into hiding and jump through universes. It has been conquering universes throughout the Pokemon multiverse. Arceus, who had been driven into a deep slumber from his last fight with the enemy, finally awakens to find that he has lost most of the universes to it, leaving him weak. Unable to take on the enemy himself, he summons eight heroes from various universes still in his universe. The first is Sean, a cold boy with a hatred towards Arceus, but also a powerful hero and champion from the Sapphire Universe. The second one was Terra, a peppy young girl who Sean mistakes for his friend May, a trainer and aspiring champion from the Ruby Universe. Joey, a young boy who only has a single Raticate as his Pokemon, was the third hero to arrive from the Heart Gold Universe and someone no one would think could be a hero. From the Mystery Dungeon Red Universe, the famous explorer that all explorers hope to be like, Vicious the Lucario. Hailing from the far past of the Black 2 Universe, a Mamoswine from the God's Chasm who serves as herald and servant to Kyurem. Two gym leaders from the region of Kanto, coming from different universes and times but familiar with their universe's version of the other, join them as the sixth and seventh heroes: the Typeless Powerhouse Blue Oak, and the Rock Solid Pokemon Trainer Brock. Rounding off the team is Echidna, a Quilava who used to be a human from the Mystery Dungeon Time Universe.

    The Universes are a bit weird. In the Red Universe, all Pokemon and moves from every generation exists, but not until future generation's universes are created and then they retroactively appear there. In the Black Universe, the rebuilt Team Plasma was taken down by the Police with N's Team's help and Nate and Rosa just had normal journeys. In the Black 2 Universe, things developed differently and Nate and Rosa's help was needed. Things also can develop differently between counterpart universes. Obviously, the events that set Yellow, Crystal, Emerald, and Platinum away from the others in their generation never happened in the other two. The gender of the hero also switches between universes (Sean was from Sapphire, Terra was from Ruby for example). They will be sent to different universes with the help of a recovering Arceus to either stop an attack from the enemy's troops, or to recover the universe for Arceus.

    There are different kinds of universes. Those based off of already existing Pokemon material (Like all of the main heroes' home universes); theoretical ones which are not based off of Pokemon media but is derived from the series (An original universe, pretty much); borderline dimensions which sit on borders of the multiverse touching other multiverses and creating a partial cross-over, like a planned one which is more or less Power Rangers with Pokemon but isn't based off of any specific Power Rangers franchise or anything; and cross-over universes. Cross-Over Universes are not natural and signify a strong energy source tearing open the edges of two adjacent universes and letting them meld together, thing become retroactive here and act like the two were always crossed until they separate and return to the way they were before the fusion.

    Arceus is also, obviously, powerful and has an influence in many universes. He has agents in many, including the previously mentioned Pokemon Power Rangers, and they will either have side chapters for their work, or meet and team up with the main eight.

    Guess I'll post the first idea for 2013...

    Battle Island? Like Duelist Kingdom, but trainers start off with one starter Pokémon (not necessarily the starter Pokemon but a baby or basic Pokémon. There is almost every type of terrain on the island, and almost every type of Pokémon. Contestants get safari type balls but can battle the wild Pokémon and there are small villages placed around the land with Pokémon centers and you can buy healing items. It is owned and orchestrated by some eccentric millionaire. Start with 2 chips, need 30 to be in play offs? The prize is cash, and of course the title, you may only catch six Pokémon but you get to keep them all. There would be one or two main characters but I would also shift perspective so some of the other contestants in certain chapters as well, so when the play offs happen it won't be a bunch of random people but you will actually know them all and they would have their own motivations for the title or prize.

    Well here's another idea I've been working on for a week or two.

    Persona Survivor 2
    Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 (Persona influence)
    Action
    Rated T (Language, violence, death, gore, dirty humor, mild mind screw)

    Nicaea, a mysterious website which offers the death clips feature. They also have a second, secret funtion: the ability to allows those who sign-up to awaken their inner power. This inner power takes the form of a persona which resembles a god, demon, creature, or figure from human mythologies all across the world. Akio Nakamoto, an eighteen year old Japanese high schooler, discovers this secret use when him, his best friend Daichi Shijima, and the most popular girl in school Io Nitta are forced to use the program to survive a train crash.

    They are pulled into an expanding conflict between JP's, a government organisation even more secretive than Nicaea, rebels, mysterious creatures called the Septentroines, and demons that have escaped into the human world. Will they ever be able to restore the world to the way it was, will they die, or maybe will they change the world permanently? Spoilers for Devil Survivor 2.

    Sounds interesting, but I think 30 starchips is a bit much.

    What it needs is a conflict. Okay, island, battling, playoffs. All well and good, but where is the conflict? Like in the pokemon games there is Team Rocket/Plasma/Galactic/etc. And, since we're comparing it to the Yugioh, there is Pegasus having kidnapped Grandpa's soul and Bakura being possessed by the Millenium Ring, and Pegasus' quest to take the Millenium Objects to revive his dead wife and Kaiba trying to save his company. So there was a lot going on besides just a bunch of battles.

    Yeah I guess 30 is too many probably. I think it was 10? in yugioh?
    And yeah I wasn't sure if that would be enough or I needed more of a conflict. I guess I will try to figure out a conflict to add that would make sense.

    At least one, yeah. Really, every relevant character should have a substantial backstory. Some, obviously, are just there to win and beat the competition, but the characters the readers need to connect with need to be more three-dimensional. Who ARE they? Why are they there? What do they want? What do they fear? What do they have to overcome?

    hmm...okay so, I've come up with this Fic idea that I find interesting. I'm not inclined to say to much (just because I don't feel like it.)... But this is the summary and the Title.

    Title: The Endless Dawn.

    "Over the years, Dawn has competed in many different competitions. Yet there is this one person who won’t let her win in anything. Frustration and annoyance begin to build as the next competition closes in…Will Dawn be able to best this boy?"

    I used Dawn because her anime personality actually fits extremely well with the concept of the story. That and I want to do a fic with her even if she's not the exact same Dawn we know.

    The theme of the story is going to be Acceptance of criticism, what is it and where can the line be drawn or not drawn?

    I'd kind of like to know what people think of it from this little information...

    Though to be honest, looking at the story, professional advice would be nicely welcomed. I don't want to do this wrongly, and to get different perspectives on criticism and the story's take on it would be something that would be extremely helpful. I just don't want to say to much stuff out loud because there's a lot of spoilers just because I can't explain much ._. So I wouldnt mind PM help or something in which i can actually explain it...

    Title: The Endless Dawn.

    "Over the years, Dawn has competed in many different competitions. Yet there is this one person who won’t let her win in anything. Frustration and annoyance begin to build as the next competition closes in…Will Dawn be able to best this boy?"

    I used Dawn because her anime personality actually fits extremely well with the concept of the story. That and I want to do a fic with her even if she's not the exact same Dawn we know.

    The theme of the story is going to be Acceptance of criticism, what is it and where can the line be drawn or not drawn?

    I'd kind of like to know what people think of it from this little information...
    While it's an interesting theme to explore (because God knows some of us need to see that message), I don't think Dawn would be a good match for this. The reason why is because she's already learned how to accept criticism. In fact, that was one of the bigger turning points of her character. Remember how she had that breakdown early in the DP seasons over the fact that she just couldn't win a ribbon? The fact that she got over that and accepted that she's not always going to win, that she's not always going to be perfect, and that things aren't always going to go smoothly for her was basically one of the major highlights to her character growth. After that, she began taking steps to change into the Dawn we all came to know, at the risk of putting it dramatically.

    So while acceptance of criticism is an interesting theme and while I can't argue with having more Dawn fic in this forum, I think that having her in this sort of story ignores one of the biggest parts of her character. I would suggest, then, either finding a canon character who has yet to learn this lesson or using an original character. It'll be a lot easier for your readers to accept your story (no pun intended) that way because you'd avoid the problem of ignoring one of the first things Dawn learned.

    (Also, one of the other reasons why I'm uncomfortable with this is because Dawn learned a lot of this lesson thanks to Zoey, and ignoring that lesson in favor of forcing Dawn to relearn it thanks to a guy really doesn't sit well for me for a whole list of reasons.)

    That all aside, there's just one other thing I want to say about this idea.

    I really, really hope you're not implying that you'd intentionally write canon characters OOC.

    Ah okay. I think I will make an OC then. Its just that it feels like such a copy and paste if I don't use her...

    What I mean by even though she's not the exact same Dawn we know...is...It was sort of like an AU, but not really. Its using Dawn's anime personality (like she's very similar to her. Basically identical.) Yet it isn't using the anime's storyline. Its technically my own storyline using a character that everybody knows. I feel like, if I create an OC for the story, which is very much a fine possibility, I'm just going to end up using an similar version to Dawn anyway. Which won't draw half the people in that it would with Dawn...That and I have a bias for Dawn, I love her so (despite the fact this story might destroy her temporarily...XD; )
    Its really just me wanting to use an already made character to catch people's attention. :/...I understand that's not really the best way to go about it, but somehow I feel like it would work.

    Oh and the title. I'd have to change the title...XD The Endless Dawn worked so well ;-;...xD

    Oh and then there's the fact that the boy is very similar to Paul in some ways. It almost feels like an Ikarishipping fic, but its not supposed to be at all. XDD;;;...

    I could. And to be frank, that's basically what I was planning to do if you think about it. The problem is that I need a peppy girl (I guess boy would do to...but...lol) to be the main character still. So it basically feels like anime Dawn so much I feel like calling her anime Dawn, even if I'm not using her story.

    True. But then you can always replace Paul with say... Lucas since he's Dawn's counterpart in the game. But it's your story, your call. I say do what you want. ;}
