Argh. What happens when all of the characters in your head decide they're too busy doing their own thing to cooperate with your story? Ahhh!!!

They're all in a domestic mood at the moment.

Writer: I want some action!!! There's still a galaxy to save! A coup to overthrow! Aliens to be defeated! Hello? What are you all doing? Vila, stop feeding Corinne! Avon, stop hiding in the lab! What are you doing in there with Cally? Argus, you have to let go of Reya sometime and do your leadership thing. You can't do it holding her. And no, I don't think it will stop her. Hello? Anyone listening? What about the story?

I usually figure the characters know what they're doing and write what they're willing to do. :^)

But they're being domestic. I will not have domestic at this point in the story! There are priorities! Don't encourage them.

Vila, stop it! There are other things you can do with Corinne. No!! Not those things! You've just met several days ago! Argh!

I mean, I'd let them get it out of their system in a story that doesn't have to go with the rest. Maybe they just want a holiday for Christmas, with no angst or worries. :^)

Well, I guess I have been hard on them lately. Avon is sort of sulking. Vila has no excuses though. But I think he has different issues. The next story is supposed to be a light one. But they have to get to it first!

I think they're pulling a sit-down strike on you. If you don't give in to their demands they'll all be sulking in unison.

Oh no. I can just see it. Avon will be giving lessons just to annoy me.

And he would laugh at you.

I think I'll write another scene where he gets captured again.

I think he might die, just to spite you.

Can't be a star if you're dead, Avon. And admit it, you love the attention.

There can be too much of a good thing.
19th-Dec-2008 04:36 am (UTC)
You mean there can be too much of you? Horrors!

Good idea. Make a clone and throw him to Servalan for a change. Cally and I are off to Gardenos to bask on the shore.

I knew it. Give you one chapter where you're all over each other and that's the thanks I get.

What is it with the men? Why do they all want to get domestic on me? Don't you want to do other stuff?

It's nearly Christmas so I guess they figured they needed a holiday.

Cheat, use the other characters to move the story on.
