Hello, everyone! This is a formal request for assistance to work on a Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (Nintendo Gamecube) Crossover / Alternate Universe fic with My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. It will be Epic-class, with at least 30 full-length (8-10,000 word or so) chapters - not counting interludes, prologue, and other fluff. It will take place in the MLP universe, though with several places and ideas taken from TTYD and applied to it. Most of the characters should be quite familiar; I'm trying to avoid too many OC's or anything like that if I can. It will star the entire Mane 6 for most of the active group, along with a curveball or two for good measure, and all four main villains. I'm making this post because, honestly... I'm feeling pretty overwhelmed with everything right now, and I just can't seem to summon up the mental energy to work on it most of the time. Thing is, I really do want to do it - words cannot describe how excited and inspired I was when I first had this idea, and everything just seemed to click into place perfectly between the two plots. But, I guess my enthusiasm kinda faded after a while... so I've been procrastinating on it, horribly. Here's the thing, though; I've found that I can almost always work much easier and faster when I have someone with me, helping along. I had some people before - good ones, too - but they're almost all busy doing other things right now. And so, I thought I would put the word out that I have this fic in the works, and I am looking for a full-blown co-author to help me see it through to completion. Applicants should have; --> Prior knowledge of the Paper Mario: TTYD plotline & universe, as well as a very strong enthusiasm for it - I need someone who shares my passion for the game and its plot, as that will help me immensely when it comes to inspiration to get this thing written. Plus, it'll save me plenty of time and trouble explaining things. This isn't a complete deal-breaker, though, since I can still explain the plot and ideas (which I will be doing anyway); the real thing I'm looking for is inspiration, thus I need as much spirit and enthusiasm as I can get. --> A decent amount of regular free time you can take without stress. I understand if you have other things you must do or work on, of course, but it's pretty much a given that without being able to put in time, very little is gonna get done. I am running on GMT -06:00 (Central USA) time, and I am usually on during most of the afternoon and evening; I'm on at night, too, but I will be somewhat distracted then - I can usually work, though. --> Good communication skills - and not just being a cool, easy-to-get-along-with person (which helps too), but I want to stay in regular contact; that means letting me know if you have something going on, if you can't come for whatever reason, and staying available on Skype as much as possible. --> Aggressive enthusiasm - nothing makes me happier, or cuts through my procrastination better, than seeing people come to me directly instead of waiting for me to contact them. --> Decent writing skills - it goes without saying that you should have a good grasp of grammar and proper word use, and preferably some prior experience in proofreading or writing yourself. Please keep in mind that I am not just looking for an idea guy, spellchecker, proofreader, editor or anything common like that; I'm looking for a partner, whom I can count on to provide me with regular support and inspiration for the fic, yet still sternly hold me accountable for procrastinating and keep me on the straight and narrow. If anyone is interested in joining me in this endeavor, please either reply here, send me a PM, or just contact me on Skype (account name is 'umbranoth'), and we'll go from there. I'll probably start by getting to know you, first, just having a friendly back-and-forth and discussion - and if I like what I see, you'll probably get the job! And so, any Paper Mario: TTYD fans out there who felt that the plot didn't get enough justice, want to see an epic crossover between that and the land of Bronydom, or simply want to take part in writing something fun and awesome - give me a call! My door is open, and I am in no rush. Looking forward to meeting potential co-authors! ^^
About Myself: I'm a moderator over at a site called Elite Line Rider. Just a small site (almost dead) but still fun, and I learned a lot about the internet by hanging there. I'm also sorta big into photography, and have a bit of an artsy side. How I found Canterlot.com: I was directed here on facebook by NeilWacaster. How I became a fan of MLP:FiM: I actually became a brony before I knew whata brony was. Some guy came onto ELR and was all "Hey, are there any bronies on here?" So I, being the crazy mod I am, shot my arm straight into the air and said "I am! Now what the [cencored] is a brony?" About a month later I watched the first episode. My favourite main cast pony/s: Miss Rarity Hello people. As I don't know where the two page essay I wrote about myself is going to be put, I'll just sum it up again down here. I'm a mod on Elite Line Rider, a forum that none of you have ever heard about, nor will you anytime soon (If you have, I'd be very suprised). I mainly joined this site for the roleplaying expirience, after a while I decided writing novels just didn't have enough human interaction. So I started roleplaying, and am sorta new to it. Now the big point. I don't know nuthin' bout' dem RPG stuff. So if any of you lovely people can clue me in to the terminology that I may need while playing, that would be great. Thanks.
