Original idea by Fierceawakening. This would be the discussion thread for a collaboration writing. You can introduce your characters here, comment on the story we would write, you may also come up with suggestions even if you are only a reader and you do not plan to get involved in writing. The actual collab-written fan fiction would be in another thread. There it will be strictly prohibited to comment, suggest, discuss or talk about real life. This thread here is for that purpose. Universe: something we need to discuss first. I say it should be a completely new universe and other (official or fan-made) timelines can only be referred to the way Animated had a lot of references. Please discuss. Private characters: those that only you want to handle. Since I would like to keep it uniform, the narration would be third person - but there still would be characters who belong to one person only. Others may use them with permission. I suggest they should be own characters only. Common characters: characters who are in the story but not belong to one specific writer. They can either be own characters suggested here and left for adoption, or they can also be official characters. If you take an official character, please keep them in-character to avoid confusion. Plot, basic ideas: please discuss. Other rules: this is a game of writing interesting stories, not a game of battle with one writer's characters fighting agains the other writer's. You may take Autobot-only / Decepticon-only characters , but I suggest you at least try writing with characters of both factions. The goal is having fun and writing an interesting story, NOT to have one faction defeat the other. The characters might want to do that. Rating: I suggest to start with PG-13 or something around that. Please discuss.
