  • DeCarlo Rules: That's strange. I don't subscribe to Archie, but ordered a set of all six cover variants of 666 from ArchieComics.com, and got them in less than a week.

  • BettyReggie: Good night everyone should be up early for the Riverdale Podcast

  • Archie Comics Collector: Archie Comics has had trouble with sending out issue 666 to subscribers. I have not received my copy either but I only have the issue because I ordered off ebay and got it several weeks ago. Who knows when Archie will ship this anymore. Although you can have Archie extend your subscription for one issue to make up for this.

  • BettyReggie: Did anybody else get Archie #666 which from the Archie subscription? My issue has not come yet :tickedoff: :'( :tickedoff:

  • PixyJunket: Ugh. I just dropped $56 to get Jughead #325 and B&V #322, both 80's Cheryl books. Jughead can sell for that on its own in the condition this one was in, so I think I cam out ahead. Gotta not spend money for two weeks as penance.

Fanfic Relay Writing
« on: February 21, 2012, 07:09:04 AM »
I once teamed with a pal in college for a relay writing contest. We were given a theme and we each had to take turns writing on it in one hour flat, we didn't get any time to discuss so we ended up screwing each other's plots. He would write one thing, I wouldn't like it, the next para would negate everything he wrote and it went so on and so forth.

Why not try the same thing with fanfics ? We have a lot of people here who are really talented with words, and art, and would make a great contribution to a story. It is not possible for everyone to write chapter after chapter of a fic, I should know, The Clown and The Princess is shaping up quite differently from how I originally planned it. I wanted it to be darker but I toned it down a lot.

We could start with a theme or loosely defined plot and then anyone on this forum can write a chapter, any number or even para of the story. It will be really interactive compared to the current format where one writer just keeps belting out chapters. The only condition would be that the most recent writer should take the time to go through the previous chapters, at least cursorily, so that continuity is not lost.

I am really interested to know all your views on this, this can be a great project. And no, it doesn't have to be a Betty/Jug fic or anything like that. I am fine working with any theme ( or perhaps no theme at all ? )

P.S. : In case you were wondering, our team came in first, how I will never know :)

i really like that idea, relay writing or writing round robin, whatever you call it. When i used to play this game with my siblings, we intentionally screwed up each other's plot ;D Like, if participant wanted a character to run a race, the next had him lose both his legs in an  accident....
Archie: Betty, our Betty! Dear, sweet Betty!
Jughead: Blonde girl, cute smile, about so high...dates some guy named Mantle, right?

That's a great idea!  I'd be happy to do it.   :)

P.S. Probably because you were part of the writing team.   ;)   :D

Thank Zach and sintah ! So, should we start on one and hopefully other people will pitch in too ?

I will let one of you take the first shot and then I will pitch in, let's keep this informal, anyone can pitch in when he or she feels like.

Fine with me!   :)  Hopefully someone else will take the first shot, as I'm not very good at starting stories.

Of course, the point of this project is to get as many people involved as possible.
