Post What's with fanfics?
Is it ok to do housepets fanfics? And if so why can't most of the ones i read even be slightly normal?

Post Re: What's with fanfics?
why would you want a story about a purple talking cat to be normal?

Normalcy is overrated. Who wants to be normal? That's boring!

How we're supposed to write a normal fanfic if the comic is not normal itself? xo

Mine is perfectly normal, sir!
By the POV of a Gliese 581d's native, of course.

Errr... no idea what you mean. when you call 'other' fics crap without a reason other than you can't stop reading it for some odd reason... that makes it hard for us to understand.

When i think normal, i think about everyday life. When i think about a normal fanfic, i think about Peanut, Grape, Max and Tarot having their romantic life on TV.

Ratings will explode

A cartoon? Hrrmm... I don't know... It'd have to be pulled off just right. (Don't get me wrong, I love the comic.)
Plus, you have to think about voice actors. Eegg! I don't think I could ever get used to seeing Peanut with a voice.

the idea has been explored and played with in other threads. In fact, we also played with the idea of fancasting as well.
We also came to the conclusion that economical and logistical problems are of impediment to an awesome HP cartoon... BUT, since the forumite FROOXIUS just opened a thread regarding a Housepets! video theme, why not post your ideas for contributing there?

Just give everyone lightsabers and everything will be ok.
I just did a RWJ reference, if you didn't notice.

Post Re: What's with fanfics?
I wanted to make a fanfic about the world nearly endinging due to the game. Exept not really the world but babolon gardes being ripped from existance thus making a whole in the universe. So every one tries to stop but some thing to stop means to kill the dragon others think it means to kill pete. everyone gets different oppionions and factions and start fighting with magic swords in stuff.

I don't think you really need anyone's permission to write a fanfic, so go at it if you want to
Unless you're just putting an idea out there

the only reason would have to be either be artistic freedom or at some point it breaks the Pg rating rule here. its pretty tough to write good action in a PG universe although Universal Statements in its current form is still within the PG guidelines.

Post Re: What's with fanfics?
No exerio the main reason I havn't posted mine here is cause I just haven't thought about it, plus it involves swearing, so im not sure if that'd break the rules or not...
