I sat down last night and began working on the new outline for FLOAP. Instead of doing my usual outline, or even a phase outline, last night I opened a brand new package of index cards and started writing events that I know take place in the story. When I finally finish that, I can organize them into a timeline and create a phase outline from that. Isn't that pretty clever? I tried to do that ages ago with my very first fanfic and it didn't work so well for me then, but that story was utter crap and that is probably why. Besides, I was using the cards differently then. I just need to remember to print up ALL of my notes before I go home today since I won't have internet this weekend. I can work on FLOAP and make myself happy. I think I'm going to pick up a few more packages of cards and do the same thing for Silk & Cyanide, since they are both such complex stories. Will let you know how it turns out!

I had a breakthrough on FLOAP last night as I was lying in bed staring at the ceiling. I am SO incredibly excited because it means that I can probably get to work on it in the next few weeks and actually finally get somewhere on it.

I want to redo my outlines and rearrange a few things but I really cannot wait now to work on it. I haven't been this excited to write FLOAP since I started planning it originally so this is a HUGE deal to me!

Just thought I'd share!

I'm really kind of falling in love with the idea of dreamwidth. There are so many possibilities to it.

I recreated floapfanfic so I can repost the story and the 'materials collection' that goes with it, and I think I'm going to move that nutso crossover idea I had for the Fever series and HP over here, too. *nods* I just have so many plans! *SQUEE*

So, today I'm going to ramble about FLOAP and Silver and Steel and how the two are actually related.

You see, once upon a time, I started writing FLOAP. It's technically called The Goddess Selene, but it's original incarnation was called For Love of a Princess, and the acronym stuck with it for the past two years.

FLOAP is primarily a Sailor Cosmos story that focuses on her as the Guardian of the Galaxy Cauldron *nods*. The Cauldron is one of those places in the Galaxy where time is distorted and loops upon itself. And she hates that she was unable to stop Sailor Chaos from destroying the Galaxy so she starts fiddling with things. The story in FLOAP is just one of the things she changes: she protects the Earth from the initial corruption by Metalia/Chaos. If the Earth is safe, then perhaps the Galaxy will be, too. Only it doesn't quite work out that way and she manages to screw everything up pretty royally. FLOAP takes place in five distinct periods, and the story is so long that I have pretty much split the story into those five periods and made them separate stories.

Book 1: The Goddess Selene takes place during the birth of the Galaxy and the time of the gods.

Book 2: For Love of a Princess is the Silver Millennium tale part of the story. This is where we start to see changes - Beryl is there, but she's not evil. She doesn't try to kill anyone! WTF!

Book 3: The Reign of Endymion is where things get really whacked out and the world is under the control of this evil bastard calling himself Endymion and he rules for six thousand years unchecked before the Senshi start awakening.

Book 4: Goddess of the Golden Crystal takes place after the King formerly known as Endymion is dead and the Senshi are finally awake and aware and are kicking butt and the mastermind behind the whole thing is defeated.

Book 5: Miracle Romance is the story of what happens when the timeline tries to right itself after the disaster that Cosmos has made of it this time. Let's just say that Pluto is pretty pissed off by this point, and when the timeline starts twitching weird things start happening.

Silver and Steel is kind of an alternate universe in the FLOAPverse. It's a different thing happening. Instead of Cosmos protecting the Earth, she makes it impossible for Selenity to access the full power of the Ginzuishou, not realizing that when she does so, she makes Princess Serenity the true wielder of the crystal. Selenity is now just a figurehead in her kingdom and the Princess is far more emotional than her mother. What happens in Silver and Steel is the result of that 'experiment' of Cosmos'.

Anyway, I really, really want to work on it today and I won't have time, so I just wanted to talk about it for a few minutes.
