@Haileyg21

What I meant is, before we come up with any particulars such as moves and stuff, we gotta brainstorm for the basic things that we want to happen, or things that we think might happen. Then once the basics are down we can get to writing.

For instance, we have Swiss Cheese Girl, who can stretch her limbs, and Glory, who can transform into animals. What might a fight between them look like?

Soph is new to fighting and using her powers so I imagine she'll use her stretching for clumsy evasion for the first half until she either accidentally hits Glory or starts fighting her in earnest. Then she can whip out some cooler, harder moves

What will Glory try in her first real fight? How confident is she feeling?

Imma do what I can but Imma need some things from you to go on

(I'm not involved in this post collab, but I just wanted to pop in quickly to say that I love the ideas that I saw over in the doc. Your post(s) is/are going to look great when you're done with the brainstorming, @SirenCymbaline and @Haileyg21! <3)

Oooh I'm glad you already got an intro written !! And I'm sorry work has been so hectic lately - you definitely don't need rush to write a post when you have that week off (unless you want to !!). I hope things get a little easier at work after that little mini vacation. <3

Thank you <3

Tho I was thinking, the intro is really 2 intros, one from each perspective, and it might be a bit awkward to put the diff perspectives in the same posts

Maybe to fill time and keep the SB active while we work on the bulk of the fight scene, I could post my intro scene and then @Haileyg21 could post theirs? If Hailey is alright with that idea

Yeah I was just waiting on someone from one of the other fight pairings to go before continuing with Iris and Julie.

I HATH POSTED my intro, now we just need @Haileyg21 to post yours pls

then we'll back and forth PM character interactions before they fight and I'll write the skeleton of a fight and then and then and then
Hailey'll look it over and see if we need to work on changes together

And you can tell me if there's a less convoluted way to do this I'll listen

This is definitely belated, but your posts look great, @SirenCymbaline and @Haileyg21! I love the debates that Mark and Sophia had with their aliens about their different outfits - they were the complete opposite of each other. And it's definitely fun reading them complain about their siblings trying to take over Earth when they're basically doing the same thing as them. >>

These were my favorite lines from the last two posts:

“But, like, the other ones are bad ones. Like, super bad.” Glaphyra had said.

“They’re working with my siblings to take over the planet. They’re gonna, like, rip out all the trees and kindergartens and replace ‘em with, with oxygen strip mines and hypo-nuclear death beam factories and bad things.”


‘Its a calm and soundless night. Just the time for an atta-’

“STOP MONOLOGUING!” Jeitai grew tired of my rambling.

“Sorry! Ok what am I looking for?” I crept into the schools building quietly not to alert anyone nearby.


[ I have a feeling that either Jeitai and Rux get along well or totally hate each other's guts just because of how similar their personalities are- ]

Also, PMing character interactions sounds like a good idea! The only other thing I could think of doing is trying your best to write each other's characters after some hardcore planning and fixing any out-of-character dialogue/action before posting, but that would probably take about as much time as the interactions.

If anyone wants, we could also get some posts up from the other magical girls now! We could have multiple battles going on at the same time and have them somehow all run into each other.

If I'm remembering the pairs right, we have Sophia & Mark, Julie & Iris, and Tony & Rebecca? I don't think Tony and Rebecca have actually run into each other yet, but they're the last two ones without someone to fight. >>

Maybe we could scheme up a post together through PMs, @JoyDark? It would be fun collaborating on it somehow! :)
