Hi! Here is an idea for a story that I would be interested in doing, and while I would like to keep the number of participants down to a minimum to ensure the story can be fleshed out more. I am open to the nature of the plot as well as the other details of the story, so if anyone does have other ideas that they would like to experiment with than I am all ears and I hope to hear back from you soon! Setting: (Locked) A coastal mainland starting point that is occupied exclusively by Pokemon, and there is many ruins of an ancient human civilization that dot the landscape. It is a place for pirates and adventurers, and the others who would aspire fame and fortune from the discovery of rare gemstones. There are Pokemon based cities and communities, and the social organization more closely compares to that observed in the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Games and/or pre-colonial type of communities such as those observed in 17th Century Americas. There would be woodland forests and endless plains, to the north there could be mountain ranges that are covered with snow, and numerous lakes and rivers. If I had to choose one of the pre-existing regions than I would lean towards the Galar Region although I would like to have the world be more focused on Pokemon and avoid the references to humans. Most of the ruins from the lost civilization would also be quite expansive including underground and above ground structures such as temples and crypts and otherwise that could be explored. For the Social Structure of the world I had imagined that it could be similar to those in the earliest eighteenth century French towns (think Beauty and Beast Opening). There could be bakers and shopkeepers, there could be merchants and there could be scoundrels' and also pirates and other nefarious individuals. There could be a corrupt criminal underbelly, and/or corrupt aristocratic structure and nobility that exerts power on the impoverished. Food can be scarce to some, and in abundance to others, and most Pokemon "work" for their living. Musical Inspiration: World Design Character Design: (Locked) My character would be a female Meowstic by the name of Harmony, who has aspiration of becoming a world renowned singer. It is a dream that she has had since she was quite younger, and she loves to sing and dance and perform albeit the one trait that holds her back is her shyness. This trait could lead to numerous musical performances (In Post) when alone or in smaller audiences, or whenever the inspiration arises. As an artist she would also be quite self-conscious about her performances, forever condemning them as imperfect and flawed even when told by those around herself that her performance was simply beautiful upon the ears as well as the other senses. As for her other personality traits, I am open to discussion here to some degree, although I had imagined she would be more kind-hearted and naive at the core of her being. As she is nobility from a remote region, she would be less accustomed to some of the corruption of the outside world. This could lead to her being more trusting of others who do not deserve the kindness, and could also cause her to be more easily "scared" by bad situations. I more or less envision her as an intellectual who prefers to think the situation through, and to also be helpful whenever she can, even if doing so places her at a significant disadvantage such as her frivolously giving away priceless treasures. Musical Inspiration: Character Design Primary Character Request: (Open to Discussion) I would like for one of the characters in the storyline to be a male Meowstic who could come from any number of backgrounds. The two meet and the male takes an interest in the female either for her beautiful appearance, or her talent towards music and agrees to become her guide (maybe in exchange for something) and throughout the journey would have to help her with her confidence issues, as well as maybe develop feelings for her in a light-hearted kind of romance as well. If the male is supportive, I could also see her having feelings for him over time too. For the other characters I would lean more towards other musical individuals, or those who would benefit from attending those performances. It could be those who aspire to become her manager, or those who seek to profit from the tickets that could be sold. It could be for other reasons and otherwise, but whatever the reason, the premise of my interest in story is to play a character who is song-bird driven, and I would like all of the characters in the story to have some kind of connection there as well to ensure they can visit many venues for performances.. Musical Inspiration: (Contest Themed) Plot Premise: (Open to Discussion) The Meowstics (and other characters after those two) begin to explore the world, and those ruins and the lost civilization in pursuit of treasures, as well as allowing Harmony the chance to express her artistic side as well. As the story progresses, I was thinking there could be musical competition held in some of the Pokemon Communities that she could participate in, and/or be encouraged to by her male companion provided he is also not musical and that he also does not wish to attend these events as well. There could also be added danger of more nefarious individuals coming after Harmony due to her family ties, as well as potentially your character who could also be nobility or maybe from a poorer background with several rising debts. There could be side-quests and side-events that happen and the two could also explore the broader world and the landscapes. For this storyline I had pictured more of an open world exploration with each "Arc" being the time between and in a given place. I am interested in a story over several months to years. As for myself, I have been writing for several years, and while I began writing as Pokemon I admit I have moved away from this in recent years and would like a return. I would consider myself more of an advanced writer (this post is my normal post length) and I write several times per week, as well as love the elements of brainstorming outside of the story even if the ideas never come to fruition; and I am always on the lookout for a new home to place down some roots and find new partners! If this storyline interested you, or you have another idea for a storyline than please post here and/or send me a message if you prefer to do that as well. I am rather open to different stories, although I do tend to write as exclusively female characters, and only one main character per story. Edit: Added additional details to the sub-sections!
