Lately I’ve been wondering just why I want to write this “Chronicles 2″ fic if the original game sucked so hard; do I think some part of it is salvageable? Do I think I can do better with the same concepts? Is it a fix-it fic? Do I like the world? Have I missed just how much the game really stunk? I can’t help but feel a little off about it, since there must be something about it that I like, even though the rest of the game utterly and completely sucks.
I often like and can enjoy things that others deem “crappity crap” while still recognizing that it sucks, tbh. But every so often I feel this gap. This odd feeling of: Hey, maybe I shouldn’t like it so much?
As for the fanfic itself, something that started off as an experiment “for teh lulz” twelve months ago turned into something very serious and real, and I don’t have any real explanation other than it’s a story that wants to be written? And maybe that’s all it needs to be, really.
