Is anyone interested in collaborating on a story?

Also, I realize that in that huge comment I would ask a question and then answer in on my own…just one of my writer quirks I guess!😅

I haven’t yet, but I probably will sometime soon.

Sorry, I’m being the slow one.😄 Ya’ll’s ideas are awesome. The judge thing sounds awesome to me, and I can hardly wait to meet your characters!
What shall we call the competition? One idea I had was the Galaxlta Games…but I dunno. Maybe Ella should choose, and we’ll just all go with it.
I’m about to introduce my girl, but first I’ll run over and do 16 personalities real quick.😉

Okay, so I’m introducing my first character. Her name is Candi Marie Stethison, and she’s 23. She has blond hair (with a few “modern” darker streaks), and hazel eyes. When she was little, she had an injury to her right eye that caused it to go almost blind, she can see light through it though. She is 5′ 8” and has a thicker build. Three years ago she also had a left knee injury, so she wears a brace.
Her personality is ESFJ/Consul…she’s competitive on the field, and warmhearted and relatable every other time. She likes people, and she’s intelligent, and is very good at planning and then executing her plans. Where she trains they call her “Sniper” because she’s a patient competitor…waiting for the other person to make a mistake, and then beating them. She loves brain competition as much, or more, than the physical stuff.
Here’s some pictures I drew of her:

Great job! That’s looks really good!!😃
I’m at my gym, so I’ll introduce my characters later. 😊
I like Candi’s personality. She’ll be a challenging competitor…
Quick question—are the games confined to each country, or is it kind of like a bracket for March Madness? Because it’d make more sense for the lead planner to make them compete altogether. Right?
Wait, Gracie, do you have more than one country?

I think I have 2 worlds right now.😄 Still work’n on them though.
Well…I was thinking that we might have enough worlds in our “universe” that only like 1 0r 2 people from each country would get to compete in the Games that decide who gets on the Universal Council. Whacha think?
Who’s our villain? We should probably develop him/her more.😉

Sorry, I forgot about the futuristic America.
I think 1 person per country because hunger games has 2.
Umm, I will think on that one… should it be a guy or girl? Or maybe it could be a syndicate or something, idk.

I just had a thought–how many people can win? It wouldn’t make sense if one person was allowed to win, because there’d only be one country on the “Universal Council”. So…
Oh, wait, what if there are different positions on the council (science, military, etc.) so the Gladiators (is that what we’re calling them?) can sign up to compete in different games. Or should they be chosen? I would think that we’re all going to make our characters prepared for the competition, so it would make more sense to have them sign up…am I right?
There are probably big holes, so don’t be shy about pointing them out. 😉

@writergirl101 Okay. We could do it that way, or we could just make it so that there’s only a certain number of spots in the council, and you have to earn “points” at the games from the judges.
I like your way though. What ideas do you have for positions?
I was thinking that at least in my Amercan-ish world, Candi would have competed in lower levels, and worked her way up to the top. She’s not really “high” society…like in the real US, it’s a country run by the middle-class, but Candi has to be the best in the whole country to go to the Council Games.
It probably won’t be like that in Indair…so it doesn’t matter which way your country does it, as long as they send 1 person to the Games, right?

Yeah, it’d be more interesting and realistic if they did it differently.
What ideas do you have for positions?
Should there be a president/leader of some kind for each planet? I think for Athenas, I’ll pattern it after the real Athens and make different leaders who keep each other in check.
Like you said towards the beginning, the villain could be more of the take-over-the-universe type if we make like a rebellion kinda thing in one of the branches (e.g. one branch starts to do the job of another branch without opposition, then just grows in power).

Oh, and I forgot the medical branch.

Ok. I don’t really like Veturia, and I can’t write about people I don’t like, so I think I’m going to start over with a new character. She was really undeveloped, anyway, so it’s not like I lost a lot of time. This character’s from Athenas, middle-class, and a lot less snobby. Sound cool with you? (I think her development will go much more quickly.)
