POST APOCALYPTIC – Terrible Writing Advice Posted on May 30, 2019May 30, 2019 by Hans Swaniawski by Hans Swaniawski Post navigation Marshall Davis Jones : "Touchscreen"Let's talk about Sex (Education) | Netflix 38 thoughts on “POST APOCALYPTIC – Terrible Writing Advice” An original story idea:Someone who is the personification of his own addiction Reply thank now I know what not to do Reply Aight, ima make a story theme clears throat for 5 minutes straight Background:The time of rule of emperor Ceaser. After Ceaser was removed from rule, the new leader, being assassinated before the ACTUAL emperor took power. The new leader, Agellum. having different beliefs from Ceaser, defecting to a cult, named “Better Rome TM” made of radicals who believe in equal rights and all that shit. Eventually, becoming the leader after assassinating the actual leader. “The Snake”, and Agellum is working on a uh. “Evil” experiment. After a strange substance was found in the Amazon’s by natives. Being captured by Agellum. (Which I will now call “The Bull”). The substance was highly corrosive and similar to radiation. The substance works much like Cordyceps, infecting a persons lungs, creating growths and leaving the victim dead, a nest for more spores to be produced. It is very rare that the human will survive this process. At the end of the growth, the surviving victim being a aware spore nest. In awhile. The survivors having their brain hijacked, the survivor having the urge to kill and infect, but can be resisted with MUCH effort. Agellum releasing the virus into Rome supporters. The country, Germanium going into rebellion against The rest of Rome. Germanium burning down many things, from the smoke and the viruses corrosive properties, mixing to create a hybrid radiation technically not radiation something. Affecting the air and causing heavy snow. At this time, the surviving victims of the virus mutating into monsters. Extra body parts being added, such as tails n stuff. The Bull’s soldiers now defecting to Germanium for the cause. Neighboring countries are worried that this will spread world wide. The countries of Europe setting up check points surrounding Rome. The infection first caught by a French outpost named “The Defense”. Being overrun by biomass, and other checkpoints being taken by the virus. Leading the virus spreading to other countries, the rest of non infected Europe closing all of the infected countries off. Others next. Factions: The snake church, leader: The Bull.Believing in equality for the people Romans’ capture, but hating other races. Such as Native Americans. There goal is to destroy Rome, rebuilding it under its regime.. Rome’s rebuilding and restoration, RRAR, leader: Lefa’ his last name not being known.The faction made up from the remnants of European forces. There duty to restore Rome.. Winter Men, leader: “Shark face”.The winter men being surviving infected, which has became more common since the contaminated environments are more common. Shark face being a intelligent infected, able to stand small arms, explosives and fire he can die from. And having a lot of mutations. The infected who are close or at his stage, being the ranks in his office. There goal to infect, kill, and destroy. Character: we follow Pierre Shoct Te’ Francwa. A footmen in RRAR. A very unstable individual, being probably abandoned by RRAR in a TSC raid. Isn’t really er, brooding. Like other main CHARACTERS. Blah blah blah something blah blah blah. Reply Damn you destroyed Mad Max hahaha Reply I sometimes wonder if the amount of heavy metal attire and vehicles is simply because now that the world has ended, they can take all of that stuff off of other things and enjoy it for themselves! It's far more fun that way, like a post-apoc cannibalization of material to make yourself look all the more terrible. 😉 Reply Fictional radiation is awesome Reply https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hfgX58vpje0 Reply Mad max in a nutshell. Reply Every time I feel the need to write something.. I come here to remind myself that I have no original ideas and that every idea I have is a cliché Reply Wait. This almost looks like a stab at Mad Max. You. You wouldn't do that, would you? Reply BEST CHANELL EVERRRR thx Reply Luv |> Reply Best location for post-apocaliptyc story is Australia. Reply 9/10. Nine points for the amazing Fallout 1 introduction (would have never pegged you as an old-school Fallout player), minus one for the absence of the most important thing: the love triangle. Reply Fun fact: a nuclear apocalypse would still technically make the world look like a desert. Antarctica is a desert. Reply Hire a composer that song is used in every song! Your same song has been played proximity 36 times. Reply trollface snek 10/10 Reply Remember to never have anyone use water or wind power in any way despite the difficulty in both extracting and refining gasoline in a post apocalyptic world. Reply Thank you so much for the FOTNS reference lol Reply I love that this just describes fallout. Except fallout is written really well Reply why did you mix super mutants and centaurs at 2:98 Reply I think one of the good things from this trope are the radiated mutants. I'm a sucker for monster designs. Reply These videos only tell me what not to do. Reply bycicles and post apocalypse ? did you mean… ''Turbo kid'' ??? (giggle in obscure fandom) Reply I feel like you have something against Mad Max Reply I think people forget that Mad Max took place in Australia when making the post-apocalyptic world one big desert Reply Thank god I missed all of these except the mutant creatures. I kinda just made them powerful because LITERAL MAGICAL MANIPULATION BECAUSE FUCK YOU Reply I personally believe a truly amazing post apocalyptic setting especially in movies should be nice if there was a flu that wiped out all inimmune, and the landscape is fine, with only society changing. The only threat involving death are humans and natural causes Reply Bonus points for the Fallout reference. Reply My post apocalyptic book is about a world years later where the first large empires are rising out of the ashes of the zombie outbreak that destroyed the original society. Reply Post apocalypse, that's what happened in the first HP book when the Dursleys moved out :3 Reply I’ve been working on a fallout fanfic for a while now, and I keep finding myself stuck between the two odds of “too much of a departure from the series itself“ and “ripping off too much of the series.“ Reply Honestly, the whole Fallout series avoids these pitfalls. Reply Writing would be easier if we get rid of NPCs. Let players… errr readers make their own story Reply Guys, prepare for some people types this in the comment, for no reason: "tHIs iS OBvIoUslY fAlLOuT 76" Reply *SPOILER The moment you realize that the entire Shannara series is really a post apocalyptic setting after the Knight of the Word series. That twist blew my mind. Reply What I learned from these videos is that every writing problem no matter how complex and fundamental for the story can be solved with either a love triangle or "Who cares?" Reply If you need inspiration, go to sleep. Hopefully your brain is creative enough to make a plot for you in your dreams. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
