In fact, I have in effect been doing it all my life (more on that in a future blogpost) though it wasn’t until last year that I started posting it on the Internet. And to my surprise, people seem to have liked it! Well at least the ones featuring currently-popular characters, such as Steven Universe. Still, it feels good.
So I though today I would talk about my fics- specifically, about the one that is 100% original (though it does pay homage to certain character stereotypes): An American Superhero in Japan!
As you can tell from the title, this is the story of an American hero and his adventures in Japan- specifically, a Japan that resembles the one from Manga and Anime more than the real one does. It’s my way of repaying both American Comics and Japanese Animation for all the entertainment they have brought to my life over the years.
The basic premise deals with Psion, a teenage hero with telekinetik powers from New York city. Despite being active for two years, the local populace barely knows of or appreciates him, and he finds it frustrating. He decides to go on vacation to Japan to get away from things, only to find there’s someone gathering the local supervillains into a dangerous organization. The Japanese military then asks *him* to help them organize the local heroes as well, as they believe American heroes are more given to team up than the more independent-minded Japanese ones. Seeing a chance to finally gain some recognition, he accepts.
So far, only the first story is complete, but I’m working on the next one. If you’re a fan of fanfiction, superheroes, or Anime/Manga, give it a try! You can find it here: http://www.quotev.com/ElSijo
