This is the discussion thread for our collaborative project to novelize FMA (the manga), so if you have any questions or ideas about the project, this is the place!
Here's how it works: Individual people take individual chapters and re-write them in novel format from the perspective of whichever character you choose. We would then compile them into one big thread, and everyone would be able to read the chapters people have submitted like a book.
Interested in joining? Just answer these simple questions, OR, if you just want to get to the writing, come on over here and make sure to read the rules!
1) Would you like to participate now or in the future? 2) How would you like to contribute? Currently we're looking for writers. 3) Do you have any suggestions/concerns about the way things are organized? Are there things you'd like me or anyone else to clarify?
I think this would be really fun, and with so many people's different styles and interpretations of the series we'd get to see it in a whole new light. Even if you've never written anything before in your life, you might find that it's something you really enjoy, and if you're nervous about your skills you can ask one of our beta readers for help.
Here is a list of our members so far for your reference \o/

1. Yep. And yup.
2. I would very much like to help where I could be of use. I could definetly see myself doing some proofreading, though probably not by a strict schedual, it would most likely have to be when/if I have time over for it. And just so we are clear, proofreading means both checking that a certain piece written doesn't diverge too much from the original, official, canonical story (OOCS=handy acronym? x] ) , AND checking for possible spelling/grammar errors? I do not doubt in peoples ability to write on this forum, not at all. But I guess there should have to be some sort of minimum requirements at least for a text to get "published" within the MAIN arc?
I mean, a certain ammount of knowledge about english writing rules would probably be to prefer from possible entrys. If a text is too choppy or has too many errors, it just isn't pleasant to read. This not meaning that if you should fail to get your work accepted into the main story, that you can't get back to the lab, fix it up and resubmit it.
Just a suggestion
3. Strictly manga, for me.
4. As for organizing, I'm feeling pretty beat, so I don't really have access to the most useful parts of my brain right now x]
But let me just say, Aribelle, this really gets me excited. Can't wait 'till we get this started! And kudos to you for taking the first, awesome initiative!
