Nearly at the end of Page Six now [determinator]
There are too many toasters in my chimney!

Thanks for reading it. And I apologize for the angstiness of my old accounts. It takes me several pages to get down to business and stop flip-flopping over whether it's all worth it. ~-_-~

It's okay, angstiness is allowed.

It's a good story, though ^_^ Definitely worth reading, even if there's a lot of it.

Incidentally, have you thought about joining all the parts into one document and hosting it off-site? So that they have one file to read, instead of a huge thread of it?

That was either the second to last or the last post I made in my thread, actually.

This is the link. The smaller file is a prequel/short side story.

I keep posting the story in the thread, but I also update the file (not as often as I should) along with it.

Is there any chance you could ask a mod to insert that into the first post?

If people click on it, and the first thing they see is a link to a single document containing the entire story, they're much more likely to read it.

I can insert it into the first post myself. Just give me a moment...

Great! Hopefully, this will lead more people to read it smile

Hopefully. People are always welcome. Thanks for the suggestion!

It's okay ^_^

If you'll excuse me, I'm now up to Page 7.

Leradny: Late, but, your post actually brought some memories of the video game TF 2, where the resident medic is also german. This opens him up to insults such as "Mengele" and what not. Not very good, I know, but maybe you should try and look at what specific type of doctoring they be doing, and go from there.
112 Leradny7th Apr 2011 11:41:43 AM from Berkeley, CA
Er, what does Mengele mean?

Also, "specific doctoring"? They're combat medics, they treat combat wounds.

Mengele. Nazi doctor. Performed experiments on Jews. Frankenstein-esque experiments.

Ah. History fail. Anyway it's not exactly applicable since my alternate Earth is around the World War I stage and there aren't any Axis-analogue slurs (yet). But thanks, I will definitely keep that in mind.

If you have combat medics, I might reccomend names that aren't necessarily insulting the fact that they are doctors, but that they are not soldiers, real men, and all that jazz.

Of course, it all depends on whether your culture is like that or not.

I said this a couple pages ago, I think, but I can't even find derogatory/vulgar slang towards medics in the real world, so. I think I'll have them be similarly off-limits.

Yeah, medics are known for being nice people on the battlefield who help others. Insulting them is kind of like... insulting Mister Rogers or something.

I just realized something today, talking to a camera is insanely awkward when I'm by myself and I'm not in a dialog with someone else. I think sometime I should see if I could get my brother to ask me some questions so it seems more natural.*

Has ADD, plays World of Tanks, thinks up crazy ideas like children making spaceships for Hitler. Occasionally writes them down.
[up] Jeje. I get nervous also, when I know I have to see my silly self recorded. It's a strange, awkward feeling in your gut. Ah, take comfort knowing everyone else looks just as silly in the camera.

[up] Me, too. Oddly, I'm actually a lot more comfortable speaking in person rather than to a camera, maybe so I can see what people think of my performance so I can adjust on the fly if I need to.

Holy shit fuck shit fuck.

I just wrote some stuff for fun.

Holy shit fuck shit fuck.

I completely forgot how easy it was to develop characters and dynamics this way. Why did no one inform me of this?

Why does it turn out that writing Crack Fic is a great way to bust Writer's Block, if only temporarily?

[up] Maybe because there are no contraints?

Problem is, most of my stuff is usually a step away from Crack Fic territory (usually crossovers and multiversal rampages)...
About to finish the ur-outline. Not actually going all the way up to the end of Part One, but just to the point where shit. Gets. Real. And that is enough—by this time, I am dying to write this stuff and have more than restored my energy to do so, so this exercise has served its full purpose.

@Jackeral: Your stuff sounds like the good kind of crackfic.

And I have been outlining a scene that borders self-crackfic myself.
