[OOC][PLOT][ARC 1] Planning for Season 1 - The Retcon
RE: [OOC][PLOT][ARC 1] Planning for Season 1 - The Retcon
If Rob is Familia Serenity, what about Princess Kakyuu?  How about Familia Ozymandias?  After all, one ridiculous pun deserves another.

Here, I think this quote might be a bit long for a story title, but would make an excellent lead-in quote for a Hanagumi/Senshi crossover story.

Gee I can't imagine how you're going to work that quote in /s

Oh, and if y'all wanted to get me to watch Danmachi earlier, all you had to say is that season 2 is basically a shonen version of Revolutionary Girl Utena. I mean, even the giant spiral staircase up to a ritual fighting platform is there!

Here's somebody for online gamers to game against.

Assuming we want to add her.

Retconning proceeds...

Quote:"You're saying that we're all isekai characters." The way Misaka-san said that, it obviously wasn't a question.

Rob thought for a brief moment, then decided to treat it as a question and nodded. "Essentially, yes."

"And you're here to help us learn how to live in this world," Konori-san added.

Without hesitation, Rob replied, "Exactly. That's part of my job."

Saten-san commented, "Isekai cliche number one: meet a friendly native as soon as you arrive." Then she took a closer look at Rob and continued, "You obviously aren't going to give us powers, like Guru Clef, since everybody but me already has some. Are we here so you can use our powers, like Louise de la Vallière?"

Rob didn't mind the comparison to someone from Magic Knight Rayearth, but he actually grimaced at being compared to the lead female character from The Familiar of Zero. "Oh, Hell, no!"

They could all hear the disgust in his voice.

"I'm sorry," Saten-san said quietly after a moment while looking at the floor.

Rob sighed. "And I'm sorry for reacting that way. That was a completely valid question."

We're going to have to have a Christmas Party story. In Atlanta. After the retconning. Because I just had an idea for it:

Everybody takes their seats for the Hanagumi's Christmas Revue - there are ten empty seats at the beginning of the show. At the end of the show, the theatre is at capacity - the Steel Angel Kurumi displacees arrive during the Christmas Revue, and nobody (including them) noticed until they applauded at the end of the show.

Something that has been percolating in my subconscious since this week's writers' talk has come to the surface. I don't know whether it's relevant to this story, but since planing for this story is what probably kicked it off...

The title card at the end of the original run of Quantum Leap said "Dr. Sam Becket never returned home".

Consider also a line from Stargate SG-1: "O'Neill with two Ls."

Two Leapers, and the Sam Beckett that we watched for five seasons isn't the one who never returned home?

Only if the hold the reunion in a castle.



Here's a peek under the kimono for folks who don't have wiki access: The list of what still needs to be done before we can release the retconned introductory story.
  1. Three more "whoops" scenes need to be written, featuring Washuu Hakubi, The War Doctor, and a "Scoobie" to be named later.
  2. Between five and nine more residence-intro scenes need to be written, either because they never had introductory stories pre-retcon or to show that this story is not primarily about the SIs: The Masaki Residence featuring Garnett Iwasaki (September 7, 2016), Live Oak Manor featuring Jenny Everywhere (September 8, 2016), Black Lagoon featuring ... Rock? Dutch? (September 2016), Callahan's featuring Mike Callahan (September 7, 2016), Appartements Mont-Royal Sud featuring Cassiopée Bright (September 21, 2016), probably 7 Henrietta Street featuring Meg Deckard (September 2016), probably The Steeple featuring Heather Raven (September 2016), probably The Grimmlands featuring Salem (September 2016), and maybe The Old Dietmeier Place featuring Kris Wikstrom (2016).
As you can no doubt tell, we are widening the scope of the stories substantially. Some of what's listed here was only mentioned in passing before the retcon in relation to how it affected the SIs (for example, Washuu Hakubi's "whoops" scene started after the fact and was present only because her building manager was about to speak with her); some of this is new (for example,The War Doctor's "whoops" scene).

This project no longer "The SIs and their sidekicks", folks.

Also, this is not all of the retconning that still needs to take place. This is just the retconning that needs to take place before we start posting stories here again.

So, if you were hoping for something to read here before Labo(u)r Day, sorry. That isn't happening.
