Hello there. My favourite kind of book/film/story has always been fantasy and it will probably stay that way. So of course, the genre of the story I want to write is.. you guessed it... fantasy. The idea I've been toying around with lately is based on a game me and my brother used to play. We loved Avatar (No, not the film with the tall, blue space people, but the animated series) so we pretended we were benders. We felt like that wasn't enough, so we also pretended we could turn into animals.. Now, I have been told that it's just too much powers. I also realise it will be difficult to write multiple characters developing their own very different powers and describe fights of such massive variety. Because of this reason I have put the idea on hold for years. But I've started reading a book by Licia Troisi about a girl who has the sleeping soul of an ancient dragon hidden in her and must develop her powers and work together with that dragon. Roughly said, she can control plants and as she grows stronger, she will be able to physically turn into that dragon. Isn't that basically what I wanted to do, but in a different skin? I feel that, if written correctly, this might actually work. I will describe the ideas I have so far: The main character will be based on myself, which means she will start out very insecure and will grow stronger by time. The fighting characters will have the power to turn into an animal and also have another power, such as bending water or telepathy. I have not decided on the source of this power yet. The powers will not be directly related to personality to allow for ironic match-ups. I plan to have the "good" ones attend a school of sorts, founded by a secret organisation, to learn to control their powers. The school will be infiltrated by the villain at some point. I don't want to go into detail, but this is pretty much all I have. I would like your opinion on this.
