superhero weekly feature theme

EDIT4: Apologies for the long wait between updates.  We are in need of a new artist and writer for chapter five.  If anyone is interested, please let me know within twenty four hours.  Otherwise, everyone will move up one spot, and the person who was going to do chapter six will now be doing chapter five, and so on and so forth. WE ARE STILL IN NEED OF A WRITER FOR CHAPTER TWELVE.

EDIT3: Chapter Twelve is now open.  If you would like chapter twelve, please let me know asap.

EDIT2: We need someone to fill in for chapter eight.  If you would like to have it and you have not already signed on for a chapter, let me know by tonight (11 pm CST).  Otherwise, I will be contacting someone on the pinch hitter list, so stay close if you are on it. SPOT FILLED

EDIT: Forgot to mention, if you plan to deactivate your account for any reason after your work on the project is complete, please let us know so we can back up your work.

Also, let me know if you would be willing to do a second chapter/artwork somewhere down the line should we have a dropout and no one else can fill in.  There is no guarantee that you will actually have to do it, I'd just like to be prepared for anything.


Okay, guys!  Time to sign up for another DA Rangers fictional epic!

The story will be titled Weapons and Meisters.  Here is the official story summary:

A night out for Spirit takes a turn for the strange when he finds himself in a world unlike his own.  There he meets a young man named Tamaki Suoh, and their dysfunctional first meeting will end in surprises for everyone when otherworldly forces that not even Spirit can understand appear, forcing the two to work together.  As their shaky new partnership is born, Spirit and Tamaki are quick to find they are not the only ones being targeted.  Their ragtag team soon consists of a depressed vampire who is a natural as a meister, an angry alchemist who does not like being a short sword, a bald headed soul reaper who is determined to work alone, and more.  Can they learn to work together?  Will Tamaki come into his own as a meister?  Will Spirit ever get home to give Maka her birthday present?  Or will all their efforts in the end be for naught?

Okay, so as you can tell by the summary, the current line up looks like this:

Spirit and Tamaki are partners, and Tamaki is Spirit's new meister.

Zero is a meister and Ed is a weapon (a short sword), but they don't necessarily have to be partnered up.

Ikkaku is an ineffectual loner who wants nothing to do with this crazy meister stuff and just wants to go home.

Everything and everyone else, including Dark Mousy, Prince Baka, Fai, Broly, etc. are fair game, and can become whatever the writer who introduces them wants.

Once again, you are allowed to sign up as both a writer AND an artist.  If you do so, you will be writing a chapter and then creating artwork for that chapter.  However, if you do NOT want to provide artwork for the chapter you wrote, and would instead like to be assigned a different chapter, let me know.  

Also, since we had a lot of drop outs last time around, please make sure you are available to write your chapter when it's your turn.  You can take a little more time drawing the artwork, but the chapters must be written in as timely a manner as possible.  You will have one week to write your chapter, so it shouldn't be too much of a problem.  

If for whatever reason you have to bow out of writing or drawing, please give me at least a few days advanced notice so I can work out a replacement.

Comment below saying if you want to be a writer, an artist, or both.  The first chapter will be posted when sign ups are done.  I want to shot for around thirty chapters this time, but should the story run long, that can change, so don't feel too constricted by any chapter limit.  I care far more about telling a good story.

Feel free to continue commenting even after all spots are filled.  We can always use pinch hitters, so the more volunteers we get, the better.

Alright, that's about all I have to say.  So let's get to it!

EDIT 2: ALL WRITING POSITIONS HAVE BEEN FILLED!  WE STILL NEED THREE ARTISTS!  THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO VOLUNTEERED TO WRITE/DRAW EXTRA.  I WILL CONTACT YOU SHOULD YOU BE NEEDED.

Okay, no more caps now.  Those get old fast.  The writing will start now that all thirty writers have signed on.  If you are still interested in writing a chapter, let me know and I will put you on a list of reserve writers.  Same thing goes for artists once all of those spaces are filled.  

The first chapter will be up tomorrow, either in the afternoon or early evening depending on how long it takes me to edit and revise.  A couple of guidelines for those who come after me:

:bulletred: You will have one week to write your chapter.  If you are also drawing the art for your chapter, you will have two weeks after your chapter is written to do the artwork.
:bulletred: For those of you who are drawing art for a chapter that isn't yours, I will inform you when your assigned chapter has been written.  You are allowed to draw artwork of whatever scene catches your eye.
:bulletred: Be sure to read all the preceding chapters so that we can keep the storyline flowing.
:bulletred: Check your spelling and grammar before you post.  Your chapters will be edited before being compiled into a book for Vic, but it would be very helpful if you did some of the work yourself too.
:bulletred: Similar to the above, make sure your chapter is formatted well.  Try to avoid walls of text at all costs.
:bulletred: While we want to keep the focus on Vic's characters, you are allowed to include other characters in supporting/minor roles.
:bulletred: That said, please try to avoid bringing shipping into the story.  You can allude to certain romantic pairings (ex. a scene where Tamaki is pining over Haruhi or Spirit is thinking about his ex-wife) but please keep it off-screen.  Remember that not everyone likes the same pairings that you do.
:bulletred: Try and stay within a limit of 800 words minimum and 2500 maximum (especially try and go over the minimum).
:bulletred: If you have to drop out at any point, let me know first thing, and let me know if you would be willing to write a later chapter instead (ex. if the person doing chapter 20 is going to be busy, but still wants to participate, I can change it so that they are writing chapter 30 and move everyone else up a spot).  Same goes for artists.
:bulletred: For both writers and artists, make sure your work abides by the general Ranger rules.  That is to say no yaoi, yuri, or otherwise mature content.

Alright, I'll see you guys tomorrow!

WRITER: :iconartemis-day:- JFF2: Weapons and Meisters No. 1Chapter One: The Strangest Night of Spirit Albarn's Life
The sun was a bright happy ball in the sky, shining down on the creatures below.  The park was full of life that day, teenagers played touch football and children drew pictures in the sand.  Under the watchful eyes of their parents, they played their tiny hearts out, and when they could play no more, they followed the sugary scent of cake that wafted from a large picnic table.  A seven layer cake all colored in black and red icing sat in the center of it.  At the top was a tiny replica of a pigtailed girl hugging the life out of a redheaded man.  The actual pigtailed girl was just about to cut into the cake, assisted by the actual redheaded man, her loving and devoted father.
"Be careful now, Maka dear," said Spirit Albarn, as he guided the hand that held the dangerously sharp knife through the frosting.  "Don't go too fast.  Daddy doesn't want you to hurt your

WRITER: :iconluckygirl88:- JFF2: Weapons and Meisters No. 2Chapter 2: A Short Misunderstanding
What is the meaning of exchange? In order to gain something of equal value must be lost or so they say. However, would you exchange something of equal importance to gain something of higher value? Some people might answer no while others might agree depending on the situation. Would you risk your life for that higher purpose?  If you answered no, then you’re smarter than me. Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is Alchemy's First Law of Equivalent Exchange.
It was warm in Resembool with that familiar gentle breeze passing by. My brother and I we’re stopping in to see Granny and Winry to get my automail repaired. The last fight against Roy Mini Skirt Mustang nearly tore it off. Thankfully he let me off easy this time even though I swear I can hear him mocking me.

  The fog gave way to room , a room unlike any thing any of them had ever seen . It was painted like the sky , but it had windows placed in various places. The small group walked towards a glass mirror , there they saw two people . A boy with spiky red hair and a boy with dark blonde hair which was tied in a pony tail . They both turned around and yelled at the same time
"Brother!"
 "Dark!".
 The blonde with the ponytail ran up and hugged Ed while the red head hugged Dark . Edward looked at the blonde then said
"Al!?"
, the other one nodded and continued to hug him out of pure joy . Eventually all the hugging stopped and everyone got down to introductions . In the end the people in attendance were , Dark , Daisuke , Edward , Alphonse , and Zero . 
"Welcome , Weapons and Meisters to Death City" yelled a voice suddenly.

Chapter 4- This Day Couldn’t Get Any Worse….Could It?
 
Spirit stood gaping at the now blank mirror for a few moments before turning back to Tamaki.
“Ok, I don’t know what the heck is going on, but apparently we somehow have to get back to Death City to get more information from Lord Death. But the real question is figuring out how to get there. Something weird is going on and whatever it is seems intent on not letting us get to where we need to go.”
Tamaki glance over to Spirit. “Is there any way I can help? I mean if there is, I can try and help you.”
“At this point, I don’t know if you can. And if trouble comes, I can change a little into a weapon, but without Lord Death, or another meister whom I form a proper bond with, I cannot become a proper weapon to fight.

Meanwhile back with Lord Death, the small group watched as he spoke to another person through the mirror. Once the others seemed to

Chapter 5: Out of the Shadows....
Over...well somewhere within the time and space portals...
Within the flicker of the present surroundings, a shadowed silhouette peered into a moonstone orb within its hand, overlooking the worlds chaos with a sickening cackle. "Look how much my baby has taken over..." She hissed in delight, brushing away a flick of wavy, black hair and dusty pearls, "Not even Medusa could conquer as much in one world....of course...she didn't know anything of the multi worlds, did she?"
Word by her word, the glow of the orb grew brighter within the cavern. Shadows jumped and flooded up to terrorizing heights, and the small candles around the room dwarfed in comparison to its blaze. The woman focused in the energy on the orb...but the next sight was nothing praiseworthy for her. She could see two forms falling within her fog, but one blazed, no, covered with the purest streams of fire.
This was something she loathed...better yet, was fille

The meisters and weapons seemed to all stand a little taller as Lord Death spoke.
“It seems to me that a new witch has risen. She is the most powerful sorcerer I've ever seen to this day. More powerful than Merlin!”
“Uh, Merlin was a wizard!” Dark said, tugging on his finger-less gloves slightly.
“No, Merlin was a warlock!” Ed shouted, a smug look plastered to his face.
“You’re a warlock!” Dark shouted back, teasing the young alchemist.
“I’M AN ALCHEMIST, YOU JERK!” Ed screamed, trying to go over to the older man, but being held back by Alphonse.
“Brother, please.”
“Can we focus here?” Zero sighed, leaning up against the wall with a sigh.
“Yeah, what’s this new witch gotta do with our current situation?” D

         "No, Edward, for the final time; we are not going to name ourselves the ‘Risembool Rangers,’” Spirit groaned in frustration, “I know that Risembool was Al and your home, but we need something that applies to all of us equally.” Spirit continued to explain to the young boy for the second time within the hour. Had it been an hour? In all honesty, Spirit had lost track of time in the heat of debating a team name. He looked out the window and saw that the once bright, vibrant sunlight had slipped lower into the horizon; becoming now a softer variety of hues. The pinks and oranges blending to create a spectacular scene.
         Spirit sighed. All this time spent in arguing, coming nowhere closer to their primary goal. If he had to give them any credit, they did decide to all work together to collect all the souls required. Though Spirit wondered just how long that would last.

“Honestly, I think we should have a team name,” Tamaki complained. The others groaned once more, having given up that notion hours ago.
“Give it a rest, will ya?” Ed griped, “You’re starting to get really annoying…”
“No kidding,” Zero agreed. Tamaki huffed and continued walking with everyone.
“Um, Lord Death?” Daisuke addressed the man leading them, “You mentioned that some of us are weapons, right?”
The man nodded, “Yes, your partner, Dark, for example.”
“Well… How do they… How are we supposed to fight with a person?”
Ed heard the conversation and walked over to join. Being a “weapon” himself, he was curious as to how the whole thing worked. “I was wondering the same thing. I’m honestly hoping my brother won’t be swinging me around…”
Lord Death laughed. “Spir

So Lord Death explained to Ikkaku what was going on in the different worlds, starting from when the fog was spouted by a sorceress to their plan of working together as Meisters and weapons. After all of the explaining of the details and the thought of the incoming threat were over with, Ikakku gave the group a smirk.
"Sure, I c-" He hovered his hand to his left side....aaaand found his sword was not there. "Crap...talk about being unlucky.." He checked his other side, then his back. There was still no bankai sword with him. Annoyed, he turned back to the group. "Sorry, but I can't join you guys."
Most of their relieving smiles got wiped off their faces, turning to him like he had just turned into the pinkest bunny in the world.
(Tamaki squealed a bit as the the 4th wall was broken, yet again. "That would be so cute for Hunny-Sempai and my precious Haruhi! Maybe I could make that our next theme after this is all over!

“This is stupid.”
His brother sighed beside him, but didn’t respond.
“We’ve got homunculi to apprehend, a Philosopher’s Stone to find, and we’re stuck in this . . . this . . .” Ed looked around, unable to find an appropriate word to describe the inane circumstances they’d found themselves in. “This place looking for some sword for some bald nobody for some reason. Look at it!” He spread his arms in an all-encompassing gesture. “This place makes absolutely no sense! Even the buildings defy logic. Is that one made out of skulls? And is it just me, or is that moon smiling at us?”
Alphonse said nothing.
Ed glared up at the seven-foot tall suit of armor. “Are you listening to me?”
“You’re making it hard not to,” Alphonse informed with another longsuffering sigh.
A sudden thought occurred to Edward. He stop

LITERATURE:

:iconnumbuh4gal:- Ed plays SlendermanBored out of his mind, Ed sat down at the computer. Al was out with Mei, Winry was out getting more automail materials, and Pinako was with her. Even Den was running around outside. So Ed was stuck inside, completely bored.
He opened the computer and looked around on the internet, then came across an odd game. It had been mentioned a lot but he kept ignoring it. Some game called Slender. Finally he gave in and looked it up. Basically a game where you look for 8 pages while running from some guy. Easy, what's so scary about that?
Ed eventually downloaded it figuring he might as well try it. Apparently it was scarier in the dark, so he hit the lights and sat down as the game finished downloading. He clicked on it and it opened, the word Slender appeared on the screen then the game opened.
"Collect 8 pages." Ed read to himself. He was in a forest with a flashlight on. "Ok, let's play." he began walking, hearing the footsteps. "Sounds like someone's eating potatoe
chips." he muttered.

And continuing with this current trend of Ed in creepy fanfics, now he's dealing with Slenderman!  Thanks for the reminder that I need to re-watch Marble Hornets.

It was October once again; a sublime and most mellow time of year. Amestris had suffered a blistering summer that year, so when the cool autumn wind finally blew in from the South; it was accepted with a surprisingly warm welcome.
Though it was still early in the month one could already see the tell-tale signs of the season, in nature’s natural transformations. The leaves were shifting from their usual green for more flamboyant shades of red and orange; the grass was yellowing around the edges, and the sky now held an assortment of purple and gray clouds. It was the same simple adaptions every year, but to one man who currently sat alone in the growing evening; it was truly awe-inspiring and thought provoking.
This man sat calmly upon his porch- covered in a thick coat- and leisurely watched the sun as it began to set over the rolling hills of the countryside Resembool. This man- who was obviously quite old in age- was a str

But when you're really honest with yourself, you know you do it because you're afraid you'll forget what he looks like.
