I'm stuck. I can't make up my mind about *the* major aspect of one of my fan fiction plots, probably because it delves into the supernatural and those can be tricky to conceive of. Here's some background: Skyrim (a video game) fanfiction Dragonborn - a man with blood and soul of a dragon - has children His firstborn is called the Dragon Child and is hailed by dragons as "the spirit mother of dragonkind" and even her parents are hailed, so it's a big deal. She will find out soon what that actually means, how the Dragon Child is created, what part the gods had to play She hears a voice in her head since childhood that calls her his wife She's 16 years old and in love with her best friend Her parents knew vaguely about her destiny but kept it from her Her parents would want the best for her (ie, make her happy) She just got called to meet with the "powers that be" and will find out what her destiny is and why she has heard a voice her whole life So where I'm stuck is I can't decide what to have her destiny actually BE. There are so many options, ranging from horribly selfish to just plain boring. As for what the Dragon Child is.... The Dragonborn was a dragon slayer and killed MANY dragons and absorbed their souls, effectively erasing their very being from existence. Therefore the God of Life and Death (a real character from the game) is angry at the imbalance. This god's father, the first god, and the first dragon, Lord of Dragons really, God of Time as well, is going to be the god incarnate's spirit and the voice that the Dragon Child hears, while his son, the God of Balance (life and death) is going to be the physical aspect of the god incarnate. Think "holy trilogy" situation, here. It fits into the game lore because some people think of the God of Time and the God of Balance as the same being, but since mythologies tend to get confused over time, no one is really sure anymore (this is coming from the game lore itself). The Dragon Child occurred because her mother was meant to have twins, but saved the life of a friend while pregnant thereby sacrificing something. The twins merged and became a chimera (fused cells), but the child is normal and healthy and everything. Basically the lore of the people (which I made up this time) says that chimera children are meant to be strong "because they have two souls", and this will be backed up by what the "powers that be" tell the family. The Dragon Child is about 100 times more rare than the Dragonborn, her father, so you can imagine it's a big deal for the gods/dragonkind for there to be one now. Some possible plot lines I've come up with are: She is destined to marry a god incarnate and have his children and those children will be demi-gods, their souls later being reborn into dragons, but also those children will be raised as monks in a way, taught "The Way" (a particular creed from this game's story), being reborn as dragons with lots of knowledge, etc (hard to follow me on this one, I'm sure!) She is to be imbued with the power to physically turn into a dragon and, well, dragon sex. She is transported to another plane of existence which will lend itself better to the "spirit mother" thing She basically says "nope" and runs away, but the gods figure out a way to have the god incarnate impregnate her anyway. Similar to how Hercules was conceived, Zeus took on the form of Hercules's mother's husband. MEAN but when are gods not mean and selfish? lol In any case, I'm really just undecided. Do I be cruel, weird, or boring? sigh. I'll appreciate ANY advice you have, even if it's simply "none of the above".
