In other news, I think I'm going to have a second shot at an Epic. My first one was back in my first year here, I think, and while I finished it, I don't really like how it's written.
Actually it may be one of the only stories I've finished. Ever.
So yeah. I've got a plot in mind, but there are also a mess of characters who are essential to the plot but may not be relevant to the story at any given point. Regardless, I'm going to try to give personality and background to these characters. However, there are sixteen and I initially planned on spending a week with each character to flesh it out more, but I don't think I can wait 16+ weeks before beginning to write. So I'll do it in pairs, since that's how they show up in story.
Actually it's kinda really eight characters with a partner but those are only the [currently] important Matoran/Toa. I currently don't have any Turaga created, and I envision there to be six. I also don't have any antagonists, and I'm debating on whether they'll be Dark Hunters or Makuta. Chances are, it'll be both, but not at the same time.
