How To Fan Fiction - A Guide - Planning
Hello, and welcome back to How to Fanfiction. Today were are going to cover one of the most vital stages of writing - planning.
"I don't know about you, Monty, but I've got a really good feeling about these ice-aircraft-carriers."
Dwight D. Eisenhower once said that 'plans are worthless, but planning is essential.' What he meant by this was that any planned operation could be expected to go wrong when being executed, but as long as you plan for these eventualities, you'll be pretty fine. Ike was talking about the battlefield and politics, of course, but his maxim can easily be applied to everyday life - you can't predict every event of the day, but you can prepare for the eventuality that something will go wrong.
The first step to writing a story is to work out the narrative. You might have heard of this if you did English class in school. There are many different ways to describe narr
LOK: Remembrances Review
Hey everyone. Welcome to the review of the next episode of Korra, and...huh. Didn’t expect this to happen.
Yes ladies and gentlemen, we’ve had a recap episode. The bane of many anime fans and the quick way out for animators to save a bit of money. I was initially annoyed by this, but doing some research I later found out that this was down to Nickelodeon slashing down funding of one episodes amount.
So once again we have Nickelodeon to blame for this shows problems...on three children. One, two, three:
With that aptly said, how does the actual episode hold up? Let’s find out in this...quite shorter than usual review!
Mako Training Wu
After my complaint about last episode not progressing Wu in the slightest, many were quick to mention that Mako would be training Wu in how to defend himself. I was curious...but I kinda knew they were gonna play it more for laughs than anything. My hope was though that it would finally get the ball rolling
SithVamp Reviews: A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving
Welcome to another episode of SithVamp Reviews! Well, since it’s almost Thanksgiving and I don’t know any other Thanksgiving specials or movies, I decided to take a look at the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.
A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving came out in 1973. The movie opens with Lucy, being the mean girl that she is, tricking Charlie Brown into kicking a football. Charlie Brown runs, but as usual, Lucy pulls the ball away and Charlie Brown flies in the air then falls flat on his back. Wow Lucy, you really do enjoy making people almost kill themselves, don’t you? You sadistic little bitch…
Anyway, that football gag has nothing to do with the story. We then see Charlie Brown and Sally walking home from school, and Sally thinks that Holidays are kind of stupid: she says she went to the store to buy a “Turkey tree”, but all the store had was Christmas trees. Sally is also mad, because of all the homework she and the other kids have to do during the break.
PnF: Tales of the Resistance Review Part 1
Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension. What can I say about it that hasn’t been said already? The movie is AWESOME!!!
In my opinion, this is the best thing that the show has ever done. It’s even better than Summer Belongs to You! Oh yeah, I went there.
Why is it the best thing in the entire show? Because it has everything that makes it a great movie. Good animation, good writing, great humor, great action scenes, memorable songs, likable, memorable and developed characters, even some dark moments that the show was never able to do.
However while I do think the movie was awesome, I do have a few gripes with them, There were two plot holes as well as what Candace-2 did near the end of the mine-cart scene. I think a lot of people know what I am talking about and would agree with me that that was Candace-2’s worst moment. Thankfully though she did redeem herself in the Goozim scene. Plus we never saw what happened to the 2nd Dimension characters after the e
Everything wrong with Disney's Doug1. Patti's hair looks way different, I liked the way it looked on Nick, and she starts to wear earrings too often, I mean why? We already know she's a girl, I can understand her wearing them occasionally, but she's the tomboy for crying out loud.
2. Connie drastically changed as well, she "thinned out" and like Patti, her hair looks way different, and she wears earrings too often, and she has a "musical interest". I liked her personality and the way she looked in the Nick version.
3. Roger is rich, I found this to be unacceptable because isn't being rich supposed to be Beebe's thing?
4. The Honker Burger is gone and replaced with a french resturant by new management because of the Bluff's buying of the trailer park that the Klotz's used to live in for the new middle school. And making Swirly that used to be an ice cream factory in the Nick version but now a hangout for Doug and his friends. I didn't like this because the Honker Burger was when Doug first met Skeeter, Patti, and Roger &
SithVamp Reviews: The Rocketeer
Welcome to another episode of SithVamp Reviews. Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, Wolverine, Iron Man, the Hulk, Deadpool, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Captain America and the Flash; names that will live forever in the history of Superheroes. But there is one hero, whose name was never included with the greats. Why is it that the name of the Rocketeer has slipped under the radar? Well, let’s take a look at Disney’s live action movie from the early 90s called “The Rocketeer”, and let’s find out!
The Rocketeer came out in 1991. The movie is set in the 1930s, during WWII. The movie opens at an airfield, where our main character, Cliff Secord is getting ready to take flight on his plane. As he flies, Cliff sees a car-chase: it’s gangsters trying to get away from the FBI, because they have something in a box that says “Authorized Personnel Only”. The gangsters notice Cliff flying above them, so they shoot at his plane, hitting its fuel tank. The c
First impressions on Sonic BoomHello folks, V-202 Davva here.
Well it seems Sonic Boom has finally aired in the States at long last. But unfortunately, I’ll be on vacation in Florida by the end of November. So I won’t be able to see the rest of the series until I return on the 19th December. I also haven’t played the Wii U version (I don’t have a 3DS) of the game yet, which I still plan on getting regardless of what reviewers have said about it!
However, I think I’ve seen just enough episodes to warrant at least a first impression. I’ll talk about the pros first, then stuff I have mixed feelings towards, then the cons and give my final verdict at the end. This is my first impressions on the TV show, Sonic Boom.
Right off the bat, the animation looks amazing. I gotta give OuiDo! Productions credit. It’s very smooth, very detailed and the characters are quite expressive. It’s defiantly better than most CGI cartoon shows I’ve seen nowadays.
How to Fanfiction - A Guide - Characters
Hello and welcome back to How to Fanfiction, a guide that cannot be used to change a car tire. Today, we're going to cover characters.
Your challenge for today is to write a coherent story starring all of these characters.
Characters can make or break a story. Good characters - the Sherlock Holmeses, the Luke Skywalkers and the Indiana Joneses - stick in the public consciousness. Meanwhile, the likes of Scrappy-Doo and Jar-Jar Binks have been deservingly consigned to the scrapheap of mockery and ridicule, right next to Coca Cola with Lemon.
A good balance of characters is key to a good story. This is why most stories do not have thirty-six main characters. You'll generally want to aim for between one and seven protagonists, and maybe between one and three major villains. There are always exceptions to this rule, however - don't be afraid to experiment. You could probably write a story with no
Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah Review
Surprisingly, Godzilla vs. Biollante made less than Return of Godzilla at the Japanese box office. No doubt as a result of this, Toho decided to go for more familiar opponents to revitalize the franchise as it began to enter the 90's. Apparently, word is that Toho wanted to remake King Kong vs. Godzilla for this occasion since it's the highest grossing film in the franchise but due to the fact that original King Kong ended up in the hands of Turner Entertainment, that would have been costly and that even put the ki-bosh on Mecha-Kong too. So instead they went for his nemesis, King Ghidorah who hadn't been seen since Godzilla vs. Gigan. Though if this information proves to be false, feel free to correct me on it please.
I'll tell you this, the filmmakers didn't go for a straight up remake of Ghidorah, The Three Headed Monster. Director and writer Kazuki Omuri opted for a different take on not just King Ghidorah but also expand on Godzilla's origin all while utilizing time travel as the
