I've created this Thread to try to centralize some resources for aspiring fan-fiction writers, to save them having to hunt through the whole site.

There are samples and excerpts below of works found here to help lend inspiration and offer encouragement to you that you are not alone in wanting to Write! :)

Please don't post anything more then excerpts meant to show encouragement or advice/tips/tricks as I think we can all agree that Fan-Fiction works deserve their own Dedicated thread, right?

Would be a great idea feature from B-Witch including Alien The Silent Dark "The Lander" topic: http://www.alien-covenant.com/topic/45125 I think is a great story.

Thank-you guys!! Glad you enjoyed 'The Lander'!

The Main story is coming along, Life is making it's demands (I think we all know what that's like) so while I won't have it done as-per my original estimate, it is not forgotten and I just stopped in here on a break from working on it, in fact.

It's now 74413 word-count, and I have yet to finish installing the new 'block' of story elements inspired from works found here on this site (namely The Animated Series).
THEN, I have to go through it all, and make sure the visual, auditory, olfactory, tactile description elements are up to snuff.

I honestly don't know how long it'll end up being, but this is a much more complex story than is usual for the ALIENverse, where Questions do get some Answers.

...and the Answers, actually make things darker and scarier rather than bringing the comfort of 'Illumination'. ;)

Our cats look at me as if I've lost my mind when I'm 'roleplaying' out dialogue/scenes between characters, but so long as there's no interruption in Treats, snacks, and meals, they're pretty casual about it. :D

And I must also mention Hubby's ongoing encouragement and willingness to help work out dialogue/scenes/tech-details. :) <3

Nice, thanks !

Here is something for u all, made it half an hour ago.

Whilst on mission, the crew of the USS Poseidon discover what they think is a new life form, but little do they know that this life form, does not come in peace.

Blackwinter-witch I dont know about you, but I've had the A:C soundtrack playing while i write now. Great way to get into the Alien-zone lol.

As musician I take a lot of inspiration from music.

Same here, but I tend to go with the ALIEN, Prometheus and ALIEN: Covenant soundtracks depending on mood and what part I'm working on :D

How good are they! Need to listen to A:C with headphone's on to get the full atmosphere.

A fan you of Bear McCreary soundtracks?!

Battlestar Galactica, Black Sails, Walking dead are great ambient and atmospheric  soundtracks too....Though too much Black Sails will invite swashbuckling pirates into your stories hahahaha

Love his work with BSG and he does great work with TWD, I also really enjoy the themes for bsg done by the guy who did the music for the kick-off miniseries.

I haz 9 cats...we're full-up on 'swashbuckling' :D

Edit: Disregard this comment. My original replay was me seeking advice for my own fan fiction idea. I went ahead and decided that I will post my idea and take any criticism as it comes...

BLACKWINTER-WITCH - I can not begin to tell you how honored and humbled I am for your choice to include a piece of my work alongside yours and IRAPTUS's. I shall do everything in my power to earn the exceptional distinction you have afforded me in this topic. Thank you ever so much for this incredible privilege. :)

Something Real

You're very welcome and I was happy to do it!! :)

I do my best to keep an eye out for talented writers around here, and also to encourage them and aid in helping their works get noticed. :)

I'm somewhat scarce around here these days as most of my time is being spent getting ALIEN: Manticore and another companion-short-story to it done.

On that note, Facehuggers! has started a story, and while it's just a start, it's a good start!!

Thank you very much Blackwinter-witch! I greatly appreciate that you've included my work into your thread. This is my first time ever in writing an Alien fan fic and though I'll need to practice more and as seeing as that I enjoyed writing the one I did a great deal, I'll be doing a follow-up soon. But thank you very much again!

You're very welcome!! :)

It's always a pleasure to lend support to my fellow writers and creative minded folks!

ALIEN: Manticore is coming along steadily, though I did steal some time today to kick off a short-story that will tie-in to the follow-up story ALIEN: Manticore 'Paradise' as I just felt compelled to get things rolling with 'The Resolution of Walter', and without your story, mine concerning Walter wouldn't exist, and frankly with your 'preservation' of Walter, it really helps things regarding ALIEN: Manticore 'Paradise'.

So, Thank-You in-kind and return!! :)

Speaking for myself, I've been very busy of late, literally wearing off the letters on my keyboard with all the writing I've been doing.

Seriously, I've worn small holes in some of the keys.


That said, I'll refer you to my ALIEN: Manticore thread, there's some there for you to devour :)

 Give it a go anyways, you never really know until you try, right? Forget about self-doubt, and ALWAYS remember that anything you write, you can ALWAYS edit and fix, right? ;)

TY for you comments and encouragement!! Things are going very well, and ALIEN: Manticore is nearing the finish-line, as are the two short stories that I've been working on alongside it. :D

About Alien: Covenant

Alien: Covenant Movie

Release Date:

May 19th, 2017

Plot Synopsis:

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS -- and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world -- whose sole inhabitant is the "synthetic" David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
