B7: Perceptions Stories 
25th-Nov-2008 11:43 am
Sometimes it makes writing much easier when the characters become so real that they take on a life of their own...and sometimes it can be a pain in the butt. Especially when they all gang up on you.

Avon is really starting to complain that he never has any fun. Argus flatly refuses to be shot again, at least for the next few stories. Cally wants to spend a story where she doesn't have to constantly worry about Avon. Vila thinks that a story where he doesn't have to be scared would be very nice. And Reya does not think it was funny that I made Argus sleep in the gym. Apparently everyone's a critic.

Sooo...for the couple of people who are interested, I am considering postponing the Perceptions story arc and writing a much lighter story next. That means that it will not be like the Sevisia story where only the first third was light. Maybe a more holiday-oriented one as we are approaching the season.

Any suggestions or ideas would be welcome.

Since this is not a planned story, that means that I don't have any ideas at the moment other than a very vague one that sort of combines Christmas (though it will not be a Christmas story per se) and Halloween. And on that note, you can see why I am asking for suggestions. Without help, this can rapidly deteriorating into something not very light.

Some years ago I read a fan-fic in Horizon with the 12 days of Christmas as a theme.

Avon had organised the gifts ... and he gave himself the geese a laying - but they laid gold eggs that he cashed!

At the end of the 12 days everything went - and no one knew who had done it ... and Avon was rich!

Well, I read it years ago - and still remember it ...So, anything like that strike some sparks?

That's an interesting idea. Thanks =)

And don't forget to finish the current story, or I turn grumpy.

I definitely wouldn't want that ;) I already have a near mutiny on my hands as it is...in my head.

I will definitely finish the current story.

I can't see the crew ever doing Halloween or even Christmas, but you could take them to a planet (for some much-needed R&R) where people do celebrate them, perhaps one settled by... Canadians! They could have all sorts of misunderstandings about the culture and Vila could make himself sick on poutine and eggnog (neither of which I've ever tried). :-D

...poutine and eggnog

Ooooh. Hmmm. Yummm. I hope you do get to try them one day.

I doubt it very much. I'll never make it to Canada, and even Starbuck's doesn't do eggnog here because it's probably too hot for it.

That's too bad =(

Well rather than a kitten, you could do a pony. The crew somehow inherits a pony, doesn't know what to do with it.

That would be cute. Good idea. Thanks.
