Don't get me wrong, it's not pornographic, but it is the story of a young lady who sells out, makes a sort of Faustian bargain for fame and fortune, decides to work with a supervillain, finds out that he isn't a nice guy and isn't what she thought he was, and quickly finds things spiraling out of control...
Any helpful critiques will be appreciated, but especially those that involve my writing since I'm always looking to improve--my fanfiction, and my comic.
Of course. The protagonist of the story does swear in dialogue, but that's her character. Yours Truly, the author, rarely swears online and seldom swears offline.
And further clarification: Later on in the story there is a sex scene...it's not graphic but it does reach the level of, say, what you'd find in a Harlequin romance novel. There's also a reference someone makes to fellatio...and a scene where someone threatens to cut off someone else's ear. For those reasons, I decided it was better to be safe than sorry.
But now that my first chapters are live, reviews are always appreciated!
Thanks for the welcomes, oh great administrator Bogus Red and Arkillian. Just remember to drop off some critiques before you leave.
Topic: Mary Sue's- what are they?
Is it possible, as a fanfiction writer, to give an established fandom character the author likes "the mary sue treatment"?
For example, most of my fanfics involve a certain comic book supervillain. Pretty soon and with enough caffeine in my bloodstream, diarrhea of the keyboard ensues over how handsome, brilliant, and powerful he is and what an angsty, misunderstood, iconoclastic anti-hero he is...followed by me slowly coming to my senses and undergoing heavy editing...
Well, I just submitted the beginning of my own story. There's probably going to be a little violence and gore, and I do have a sex scene and references to sexual content (a guy and a girl, if you must know) What compelled me to finally put it on the Red Curtain side was the fact that my original character is incredibly foul-mouthed. If a movie gets rated R for a few uses of the word "fuck," and the Red Curtain is reserved for items above PG-13, then...
I want to submit a new comics line. However, I wrote the entire script for this comic and paid artists more gifted than I to pencil and letter it. Would it be within the rules for me to post it while making it clear it's a collaboration and giving the other artists proper credit, or do I need to be the sole author and artist? Naturally, I do have the other artists' permission to post it on a website of my choosing, per the contract I drew up with them.
