Drowtales Fanfic Ideas and Discussion Thread

Postby razer666L » Wed Mar 07, 2018 12:57 pm

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to "Drowtales Fanfic Ideas and Discussion" thread. This is a place where you can post your Drowtales fanfic ideas and everyone can join in and discuss about them. :)

Your fanfic ideas can be either original (Moonless Age or Space Age) or crossover with other franchises. :D

Be civil in the discussion, please and no flaming, no trading insults, don't be rude and don't be condescending. Oh, and no "one-liner idea" posts. Please post your ideas at least with more than two sentences to provide context to all of us. Thank you. ;)

To start off with this thread is my Drowtales: Space Age + Mass Effect: Andromeda crossover idea.

Similar to the original Space Age story, the drow space stations and observation posts were under attack by kett forces, thus causing the drow to send a recon vessel to investigate. That's when the drow found a freighter drifting over the gas giant's asteroid ring. They attempt to communicate with the vessel several times but no responses are given, forcing the drow to board the ship to investigate.

The drow marines find the crew incapacitated and before they can figure out what has happened, the drow marines are ambushed by kett troops. As the marines are getting overwhelmed, a kett cruiser jumps out of FTL and appear next to the drow recon vessel before opening fire on it. The recon vessel suffers heavy damage and becomes crippled in space, while the drow marines are captured by the kett.

The recon crew manage to send a distress signal to their military headquarters before the ship is boarded and the crew are captured as well.

Several days later, as the drow prisoners just arrived onboard the Archon's flagship for exaltation, that's when Ryder and Co. sneak aboard the kett flagship, where they stumble over the drow prisoners, manage to free them and team up.

Well... hate to break it to you, but DT's community just isn't what it once was. The comic ends this year, and some people (myself included) have just grown increasingly disillusioned with DT's execution and world-building.

Don't get me wrong - the basic idea of DT (make the Drow sympathetic without making them goody two-shoes) is a good one. It's just that sometimes the writing doesn't quite convey that idea, and some major elements of the setting don't make any sense unless you add in some very Lovecraftian ideas - and some just don't make any sense period. The fact that all the times I asked Kern and Kite on the livestreams before I got banned from them only ever lead to half-assed answers (at best - and usually being ignored/dismissed) certainly didn't help.

And this isn't even counting the behind-the-scenes drama that drives some people away. Even the little bits that I've learned of paint a rather disturbing picture of what goes on.

So... yeah. That's probably why you haven't

Anyway, let me share one of the ideas I had pre-disillusionment.

It too, would have been Space Age-based, and would have been a crossover... but would have thrown out everything pointless about SA in favor of actually developing the universe. It would have crossed over with Star Trek, Diablo, and Command & Conquer. The space-faring humans would have been replaced with the vastly more competent Global Defense Initiative and Brotherhood of Nod, the Klingons, Cardassians, Bajorans, and Ferengi would all also be major players in that area of the galaxy, the Borg and Scrin would be major threats, the Dominion would be getting up to no good, and the conflict between the Bajoran Prophets and Pah-Wraiths would tie in to the Eternal Conflict from Diablo.

As for where the local powers stood at the start, GDI, the Klingons, and the Drow are all roughly on equal standing - though GDI and the Klingons have a mutual defense pact, meaning that the Drow would have to be really stupid to attack either, since they'd find themselves fighting two powers of about equal standing. The Cardassians and Brotherhood of Nod are less powerful, but trickier, and can still hold their own. The Ferengi are still less powerful. The Bajorans.... the only reason they're even in the game is because of the wormhole, and are still recovering from the Cardassian Occupation.

The Borg and Scrin.... tower above everyone else in the galaxy, though that might change, seeing as the Iconians are arriving a few decades ahead of schedule. There'd be a fight for control of the Worldstone (as well as evidence that the Iconians used it in the past for.... various reason), the Borg and Scrin would form an alliance - much to everyone's terror, the Drow homeworld's sun would be triggered to go supernova at some point - kicking off a truly epic clusterfuck in the process, secrets of Kane's backstory would be revealed, and many, many people would learn why you don't fuck with the Sisko.

That's not to say it'd be all "Serious Business" - there'd be quite a bit of silliness as well - such as various characters prank-calling a guy who's an expy of Ghost from True Capitalist Radio, a few Kansas City Shuffles here and there, a truly bizarre gambit pileup involving baseball cards, Claire losing a bet and having to go on a date with... Morn, LEGION taunting Rinna/Crazy after he keeps outwitting her, a few "Blackadder"-esque shenanigans, Sil'lice being stuck in the middle of a prank war between Crazy, Garak, Quark, Nog, Bashir, O'Brien, and Havoc, and Lilith getting dumped on a Pakled freighter.
