Possible new canon author ideas and discussion

Re Gen1 in general... with the lack of action on the Kimba side, there might be room for other characters to step up. The current authors are good, but they are... well... few in number, and are spreading themselves a bit thin. Perhaps another infusion of new blood could help... who might be a good fit for the TINCC?

Don't call me "Shirley." You will surely make me surly.

Indeed... we ARE looking to pick up a couple new authors. I'd like at least one for each timeline, and ideally two for Gen 2...

The ideal author would be willing to commit to 3 (or 2-4) 20k word content releases per year for at least three years with 2/3 of their material developing their own new character 'in time' with the timeline and 1/3 of their work in further development of the universe (either a crossover with other characters or teams, a backstory piece fleshing out the universe more, or a team up with another author on something 'big picture').

People who have been active as WhatIF writers and can show success with the universe obviously have a foot in the door, but most authors can expect at least SOME audition process required. This is more to make sure you're willing and able to work with US and within the context of the shared process than to see your writing skill (there are plenty of good writers who would be fine just writing their own WU stories... but that doesn't mean they are willing or able to adapt to meet the requirements of the canon authors and the universe and its no point in recruiting people who can't work with us).

People who are 'new' to us as authors, will also get the opportunity to show us their writing skills as part of their audition.


We thought about cloning Morpheus... but we suspect he'll just assimilate the clones. I'm fairly sure there is an apocalyptic result down that path, so... maybe we'll have to hope to solve the problem a more traditional way with recruiting. :P

Since Astro is my second favourite Gen 2 author and keeps complaining in our Discord server ( discord.gg/mfDAB28 ) about having to hold back on writing his lovely Morgana I would suggest he join the Gen 1 crew as well.
Also Polk Kitsune is a lovely human (or rather foxy) being and has written one and a half great stories so far.
With those two writing for Gen 1 I would certainly read a lot more of that.

No one is holding back Astro except Astro. If Astro wants to write more, he should.

I'm sorta too far ahead in G2 as it is. I am thinking of a new character though...

I love watching their innocent little faces smiling happily as they trip gaily down the garden path, before finding the pit with the rusty spikes.

I decided to take a look at the status of Gen2. Here are the last dates of stories for the major characters:

Hikaru (Sunshine and Fury) - 9-19
Cerulea (Laura and the Fan Club) - 9/29
Eisenmädel and Calliope (Dorms 4.6) 10/02
Glyph (Ink in her Veins) 10/8
E.E. Nalley's complex - 10/10
Dragonsfyre (as e'er...) 10/17

So yes, Astrodragon has run ahead of everyone else, and that may cause consistency problems for characters that want to catch up.

I don't know what, if anything, is in the queue, of course, so take that with a grain of salt.

- - -
Oh, yes, the last part of Flowers of the Sun is all by itself on 11/24 and 11/25.

Speaking for the Queue... we'll be seeing some Gen2 goodness over the next few weeks... not catching us up completely to Astrodragon but progress will be made... :)

Its why I'm reluctant to go any further forward, although I was careful to only include a few incidents with the rest of the team in e'er.
You all need to write faster! faster, faster, pussycat, kill! kill! :twisted:
