Thanks to y'all, I now have antagonists! Here's how the not-zombie apocalypse lines up so far:



Spoilers! )

I know--the not-zombie apocalypse needs work.

You can vote for as many as you want. However, if you vote for "Zombie hordes" and "Long Feng's zombie hordes," you are voting for two separate groups of zombie hordes. Which you could totally do.

There is still no antagonist, (We have six days, brain) but there is an ending.

The truth is, Azula needs a job. A really important job. I think someone pointed that out in [personal profile] lizbee's thread about Azula redemption-fic, but I can't find it right now. This job also needs to fit her particular brand of sociopathy, which actually cuts out a lot of jobs most sociopaths could do. (Things that require you to charm the pants off people.) I've also been wondering if she and Toph can...have some kind of relationship after all I will torture them with they'll have been through.

And, Internet, I have found the answer to both of these.

Squeeeeee! )

In which I realize that world-building is about more than just the physical construction of a geographical place.

I know--the Avatarverse is a fantasy long-ago place, inspired by Asian cultures. It has airships and wheelchairs that fly and war balloons and sandwiches. Yet, my inner Sokka chafes. (Yes, I have one. A loud one. Why are you laughing?):

The existence of mental health facilities/asylums/places to warehouse 'crazy' people is unlikely. )

ETA: Yes, this screws up what little plot I have, including the B plot. But I want to watch and see what happens. I have no idea if what I'm seeing with Zuko and Mai's wedding is a good or bad thing--you know, for me the story. If the story breaks completely, I can always fall back on Word of God. (Sokka, hush).

And the problem of the B plot I just broke has a solution )

 I have just done something incredibly silly. And it is 15 percent [personal profile] rydra_wong's fault.

Although I've never successfully written a novel, ever, and have only recently begun to successfully write fiction ("successful" being defined as "finished two stories I've started"),  I've signed up for National Novel Writing Month. To do (a horrible draft of) the Toph-Azula thing. That as of yet has no plot. Or Big Bad. Or geography. (I fail geography forever). And my world-building sucks.

Damn you, NaNoWriMo, and your lure of: "Hey, it just has to be written! It doesn't have to be any good!"

Guess where I'm spending my October? AT THE LIBRARY!!!!!
