    Hate it when you see an unfinished story that seems to have been abandoned by its author?

    Have a story that you no longer have the enthusiasm to finish? Or DRL just getting you down and causing you to have no choice but to cut down your fan fic writing time?

    This is the place for you! :)


    For those looking to hand over a story to someone else:
    just post here with the following information about your story:

    Title: [ link=URL of story]Name of story[/link ]
    Author:
    Characters:
    Timeframe:
    Genre:
    Summary:
    Author's notes:

    I will then list this information in an index below. You, the original author, have final say on who takes over the story, just let me know when that happens and I will move the fic to the "adopted" index below that.

    For those who are interested in adopting a story: If interested, PM the author directly and apply. If you don't know the author very well you should give them an example of your writing and what you'd like to do with the story, should they agree to let you take it over. Upon approval, either you or the orginal author should notify me and I will move the listing to the adopted list, with the new author's name added, and a link to the continuation/repost of the story (if applicable).

    Hi, Darth Ishtar,

    That's a nice plot bunny, I hope it gets adopted soon. I would adopt it if no one else does, simply because it's such a good story, but I will probably be very busy during the summer, and my am looking for co authors for my own fic....

    Bookmarking this thread, if no one else adopt it, I will ;)

    DarthIshtar - I think it sounds fascinating. I hadn't seen this story before, so now I have to go read the entire thing instead of doing my homework ;) I find it hard to believe you haven't done it justice, however! You've written some beautiful stories in the past and I have every faith you can finish this one.

    I'm the world's slowest writer, which means I'd make a poor adoptive parent. If you change your mind and want a coauthor or even just a brainstorming friend, though, let me know ;)

    Y'know, I was wondering about this very thing a few days ago. Good to see someone has acted on it. Sometimes there are stories around here where I go, "Man! That would have been sweet...if they'd have finished it."

    One question, though: what about all those long-abandoned stories over in the Fan Fiction Classic board, where the author has been inactive forever? I think a few months ago I was perusing that board's depths and found a real gem that never got past the second chapter. I know I could never do it justice myself, but what about other stories, where I think I could? What would we do about that? How would that even work? Is it cool to just pick up a user's story without their permission, if they're permanently unavailable to give it?

    When I started writing this post, it seemed like a perfectly innocent thing, but the more I think about it the touchier it gets. [face_worried]

    I've got one.

    Title: [link=http://boards.theforce.net/Message.aspx?topic=22228237&brd=10476&replies=47]Rebellion[/link]
    Author: Boady22
    Characters: Bail Organa, Jan Dodonna, Obi-wan, Yoda, Vader, Plapatine, Kane Starkiller, Usby Thabe, Tremayne, General Lettow, many others
    Timeframe: Post ROTS
    Genre: Action alot of OC work.
    Summary: Follow the people who rejected the Empire and formed the Rebel Alliance
    Author's notes: It was a good idea and I had a solid fan base at the start, but eventually I lost my readers. Its pretty simple if I have no one interested I do not write on it. If someone wants to take it over cool. Or if someone wants to do a co-author thing its cool too. Either best of luck!!!

    Sorry for all the edits, I'm no good at this link posting thing.

    Here's one up for adoption.

    Title: [link=http://boards.theforce.net/beyond_the_saga/b10477/22667757/p1/?24]Star Wars VII: A New Dream[/link]
    Author: Eleventh Guard
    Characters: Allana, Jaina, Jacen, Lumiya, Zamon Fel (OC), Threepio, Artoo, others
    Timeframe: 53-54 ABY
    Genre: Space opera. :p
    Summary: Like A New Hope, but with different characters in the old ANH roles. Allana = Luke, Jaina = Obi-Wan, Jacen = Vader, Lumiya = Palpatine, Jag = Bail, Zamon = Leia, and so on and so forth. The droids are as themselves.
    Author's notes: I got 5 chapters into this and ran out of steam. I like the idea, but I posted without really thinking through what would happen, and I don't know where the story is going to end up nor how to get to there from here, other than following the original script. So I offer up this story in case someone else would like to play with it.

    1Yodimus_Prime, I can't speak for others, and admittedly my experience in this fandom is limited, but for myself and in the other fandoms I'm active in, you can't finish other people's stories without permission. As a writer, I would consider that a huge offense. I know it's hard to accept that some stories will never be finished, but it's still the creation of someone else and they ought to have control over what happens to it. (Of course, the same could be said for all fanfic everywhere ;), but the general consensus I've seen is that you can borrow elements from your betters, ie George Lucas, but not from your peers, ie other fan writers.)

    On the other hand, if you contact the writer(s) in question they might be perfectly happy to let you finish the story. But you should definitely ask first.
