One thing that has been giving me much joy and entertainment since Christmas: nexus_verse
's baby: an idea she got time ago (November? December?) as she explains in the first entry of the comm, I think. And no, I haven't checked, but I know it's there, somewhere.
It's a sci-fi 'verse, where several of disanddat
's favourite characters find themselves: they are not exactly the same, of course. There is much mistery about the Nexus and why characters wake up there: the Winchesters, Mulder and Krycek, Guerin and Max from Roswell, Hobbes and Pinocchio from Harsh Realm, Victor from Once a Thief. disanddat
has been writing in the main time-line, and I jumped in and added bits and pieces, transferring in the Nexus a character I wrote first in RP (again, somewhat different), and possibly one more later on.
It's a type of collaborative writing, I suppose, but not RP. More like a shared 'verse, where one writer, disanddat
, has shaped the main relationships, and then we pick at the details and brainstorm together.
The writing is building up slowly scene after scene as the characters start to interact with each other, as they try to understand where they are, why they are there, as a group dynamic starts shaping up...I love the nexus_verse
, I have bits and pieces that need finishing, but the main slant is all disanddat
We're slash-inclined, of course, so there is slash happening...but we're also narrative/plot-inclined - so there isn't just smut. lorelei633
have been reading along, and hopefully will contribute pieces of their own.
Anyway. I just wanted to point at thenexus_verse
in all its shiny-ness, and invite you to come and read, let us know if you like. If you have the time/inclination.
We're having fun with it :D
I forgot...there are Tentacles. Quite a lot of them. *nods* And there will be more in the future. *nods again*
