Fic ideas V.2

    See here's the thing. Basically I posted this fic over ten years ago when I was under a different username. Me, being forgetful, made a new account (this one) and I revisited Said 10+ year old fic, and found it cringey and want to rewrite it.

    But I don't wanna be accused of plagiarism either. It is my fic, but it's old and I want to rewrite it. I don't wanna post and get in trouble, you know?

    Cometstarlight What do I do now?

    Do you have the original manuscripts on your computer? Any files that you used with a date stamp on them? If not, explain what happened: you made a fan fic 10+ years ago. Most users I know don't go looking for "cringey" fan fics on Serebii that were posted over a decade ago. If you want to get some hard proof, you could try to retrieve your password from said account. So long as you remember the username and the email account, you should be able to get access.

    Sadly, I don't have the original manuscript. It's been several computers over the years and idiot me didn't know how to back up at the time.

    As for email, that's also been deactivated: it was a cringey old email.

    Again, the last thing I want to do is get in trouble for plagiarism. Unfortunately I only have my word. But I do still want to revisit it. Not too sure.

    Just thought of something that's small enough that I can do on and off throughout the year: continue with the "A Day with X" stories that Pokemon Masters is currently doing with their characters. Let's face it, most of those characters aren't going to get fleshed out beyond that one entry, at least not for another year or so, so why not take my own spin on it? Maybe I can come up with an interesting quirk for some of them? What do you guys think?

    Was thinking of ideas for a story of my own. That fan story, 'Pedestal' is sort of an inspiration.

    But following the standard route of going from gym to gym is simply too standard and boring. Breaking such conventions and bringing in new ideas is something I've been looking into. Changing up what starter pokemon there are and how they are obtained, breaking tradition and fighting gyms in reverse order, using a region of your own creation, altering story plot and events. Many ideas that could be implemented.

    All I have so far is:
    • Writing the story in first person
    • Unexpected starter pokemon / team members
    • Gyms done out of order
    • Original ideas for story arcs / plot
    • The setting is an original region
