Hey there, I've been a fan fiction writer on and off for the past few years and I've finally thought up what I think is at least a semi-original idea for what I hope to write as either a book or, if I could find the talent to draw the thing, a comic/graphic novel. The world I have in mind is your typical cliche fantasy world with the usual fantasy elements, but with a twist. The whole idea revolves around continually breaking the 4th wall as a main plot element to create a comedic-drama piece. The story would revolve around the character Fredrick McNeal, a simple farmer who became the first prophet of Narrativism. The religion is based on the idea that the universe as they know it is created by an author in a parralell universe and that everyone within the universe is mearly a creation of that author in order to entertain the audience. Fredrick discovered the religion after hearing the voice of the author firstly in his dreams which then escallated into everyday conciousness of the authors voice and the ability to work outside his influence, to go against the story and carve his own path. His goal is to spread the word of Narrativism across the land in order for people to become aware of their actions and break the hold the author has on their minds, as each person living within the world has the voice of the author in their head, effectively narrating their lives, sort of like the little voice/conscience in our world that tells us when to do or not to do something. Throughout his journey the author will at first embrace Fredricks ability, but as Fredrick begins to gain followers the author will send forces against him in order to stop him. While he could obviously destroy him in an instant by dropping a boulder on him from a great height or by causing him to contract a flesh eatting virus the author knows that the conflict will make a great story and ultimately, sell well, so he mearly challenges Fredrick rather than killing him outright. So far, its just an idea. Theres no long term plot, no deffinate world, nothing except the initial concept. Basically what I'm asking is, is it a good idea and is there anything anyone can add to help me develop it into something I can work with. The kind of vibe I want to put across is similar to a Terry Prattchet novel as I could see this idea being something he might work with. So really, any help would be greatly appriciated.
