This is NOT going to be a 'fanboy thing' I intend to do a good job, though I will only be able to work on it during times at which my inspiration permits. (Otherwise if I tried to keep working, the story would end up crappy, unoriginal in the least, overly convoluted, incredibly jumpy, or some combination of them all...)
Also I do intend to include at least one hentai scene... but... I can't be the one to write it... I have too much self-respect and too little... "creativity" to do it. The scene/s will likely be scrapped if I can't recruit any good writers willing to do it...(Note: though a hentai scene is a possibility, it won't be a main focus of the novel)
Literacy is a must.
About my time schedule... I am a student in college, during finals week... so, I'm a bit pressed at the moment. (one reason I need help...)
I mentioned before that I'd include supplements to the resources... I would really like someone who is good at CG, and willing to paint a few scenes. Also, I may provide lineart for a few new sprites, which I would need colored, preferably as close to the original style as possible. (copying others' work is no small task I know, but, as my tablet is currently busted... I have
I understand basic Japanese etiquette and logic, and for what bits I'm sketchy on, I have a friend who is very well versed in it(visited the country several times.)
Being american, however, there will inevitably be discrepancies.
I will not tolerate name brands or proper-names of television, written work, or other media to appear in my story unless they are inherently from Japan. (It kills me when supposedly Japanese characters in Japan, are "watching Jerry Springer"... it makes me wish to bludgeon people with rusted toasters...)
Note that my writing ability is not reflected by my sarcastic nature, I can copy a personality. (I often find myself rewriting characters' dialogue when I discover I've used a word that character normally wouldn't.)
I fully intend to add portions of flowing-though writing into the novel as did the original authors.
The schedule for this is not planned, it will be finished when it 'feels' finished.(unless yet more fanworks of suitable quality are submitted)
If I've seemed forceful or overbearing, it is simply because I don't want this to be construed as a crappy attempt at fanfiction...
(note, having read Tsukihime and/or Kagetsu Tohya, is rather important. As for the mythology, there is a wiki that thoroughly explains most of it, should something be too cryptic.)
All that said, who's interested? Anyone?
If anyone would like to submit a work, but not explicitly join the project, that is fine, you will get your name in the credits if the "team"(however many that may be) decides it is acceptable. You may post the story, or only the concept here, and PM the full work to me, or anyone in the team(unless they state otherwise) for approval.
o Areas of expertise/interest
+this includes Ren'Py/Python programmers
+story planners (I need a bit of help with this at the moment, namely the prologue)
o Whether or not you are willing to do/discuss the hentai area of the novel(optional info)
o Whether or not people may contact you with submissions
Multi-talented people are, of course, welcome.
The main story focuses, as always, on Tohno Shiki. It will branch in many directions, anywhere multiple branches can be created and finished with efficacy. (Easter-egg events are acceptable here)
it takes place mainly after Kagetsu Tohya, but can have branches that take place earlier (these will have to be started early, before any KT events are referenced)
Names will be written as they are in Melty Blood, which has all names officially translated to english. (Len is Len, not Ren, because it appears in Melty Blood as Len.)
Honorifics will be used, because they are relevant to the character interactions.
Main story characters will be Akiha, Arcueid, Ciel, Hisui, Kohaku, and Len, with the supplemental secondaries like the Inui's.
Sub Stories can appear in any amount, and focus on any character. (Preferably more than 3 stories, but it's all dependent.)
These may also be as serious, comical, downright mytho-breaking, or hentai as need be.
Characters in the side stories are as many or few as desired, including Satsuki, Sion(MB), Mech Hisui(Also MB), references to Fate/Stay Night, or original characters(if sprites are provided and they aren't ridiculous...)
I would like to revisit Nanako in at least one of these... (if possible, I haven't finished reading SOS Nanako-chan yet)
Ok, that's the deal, please let me know who's interested.
EDIT: Well, all of the misunderstanding of intent aside, I'm now reopening this under the understanding that I do not intend any illegality from it, nor take any credit for the works of TYPE-MOON and affiliated parties. Simply a fan work.
