Yesterday I found an old Resident Evil fanfic on my computer. I originally wrote it about seven years ago (omg, that was forever ago!), but in 2007 I started re-writing it. The idea of the story is pretty cheesy, though the way I had re-written it was actually pretty good (if I do say so myself). So between yesterday and today I wrote two more chapters. I planned it out, and there should be about 10 in all (plus the Prologue and Epilogue). Maybe I'll post the re-write here. Though, maybe I'll re-write the other two stories (it was a trilogy), and then post them... The whole thing was based on a dream that I had one night, about what if I was a part of the Resident Evil series. I love taking ideas from my dreams and just running with them. So, the first story takes place in RE2 (with my in it, of course). The second story is Code Veronica, and the third story is an all original one. I wrote all those stories before RE4 and RE5 came out, so to keep it following the games' story lines (at least somewhat) I'll have to re-write a lot. But I think it could be fun. I feel like I'm back in Jr. High writing and reading these... It's a lot of fun. Definitely relieving all the stress that has built up over the past few weeks. ♥

PS. What are stories like that called? Mary-Sue's? Aren't those pretty much a no-no for fanfics? haha. I don't really care. They're special to me, and I like them.

I think Mary-Sues are more like... a character that is the Center of Everything. Like bringing in a an established character's relative that was never mentioned in canon or somesuch, or - more often - having them be a love interest of an existing character, having the entire canon plot suddenly revolve around them or what have you. :o Self-inserts/Original characters are different than Mary-Sues, imho.

Generally self-inserts and Mary-Sues get eaten alive in fandoms, yeah, though I think people should be able to write whatever they want. God knows I had a million original characters I shoved into fan-fics back in high school. :( If you're writing them for yourself and it's fun for you, I think it's awesome.

I usually make all my journal's friends only, so I'm trying something new here by making everything public. I'll randomly post icons, music, lyrics, stories, and more. If that interests you, and you want to be friends, just leave a comment :]
