Ok for months I have been planning on making a DDO fanfic, in the form of an animation to make it unique and something nobody has done yet, but here is the problem. While the visuals may be great, the plot SUCKS. I won't go into detail here, but I keep coming up with all of these elements and plot points for a story, but I don't know how to make it piece together to make a deep or edgy story, because it is supposed to be a somewhat clever work of art with a deep plot, but I can only come up with a stereotypical storyline that is basically overused. Is there anybody who could help me with this issue?

And I know what you are thinking. Who is this new guy, why are you writing fanfics already? Well I am definitely a multi in case you didn't know. I actually began a fanfic about 9 months ago, but it was scrapped.

Just make a weird story, and send it to me.

...it's not a new policy... it's just that DDO was built on an ancient burial ground, and that means the spirits of old rise again to cause us problems sometimes- Airmax1227

The best thing to do would be to get episodes of a tv show a lot of people are familiar with (old pokemon episodes for example), and then find the spanish or japanese audio version for the scenes. Then you could simply insert subtitles over it and make the characters look like they are saying anything you want them to say.

Finding scenes from different shows and trying to hook them all together with a sensible plot behind it is damn near impossible. You can make it happen if the show is only 5 or 6 episodes long, but the longer the series, the crazier the plot is going to get.

Basically you need to compromise on something, whether it be length, audio, subtitles, etc. that will give you the ability to actually craft a story

Sometimes, being stereotypical about the plot, but extremely stereotypical in a comical way, is funny :D
