The Enterprise shuttlecraft – shuttlebay

00000 Introduction to the Enterprise Shuttlecraft 00000

More and more authors put up 'ideas' files, placeholders for drabbles, ideas, oneshots, and other collective silliness that, in most cases, will never make it to fully-fledged stories. As a fanfiction author, I'm nt above using a good idea for myself (otherwise I'd be writing original fics, rather than fanfics), so I decided to use this format as well.

The Enterprise Shuttlebay will be filled with small and not-so-small shuttles, some of which will be as small as a few scenes, and some as large or larger than some one-shots I've written.

However, all of them will have one thing in common – the scene breaks will be often, and the time jumps will be very noticeable. As these are ideas, I will only write out the scenes for which I have ideas, and none of the usual connecting scenes that will tie everything together into a coherent story.

The format I have chosen to use will give the prospective reader an overview of what to expect. For instance, Shuttle One has the following characteristics:

Main Universe: Harry Potter

Crossovers: The Hollows, Naruto, Avatar: the last airbender, Animorphs, D Gray-man.

Timeframe: Harry Potter, age 6

Last updated: 22 August 09

It gives an overview of what the main universe is (in this case, Harry Potter. There is one Naruto story at the time of writing, this may increase in the future. The crossovers are listed by the name of the series, so that readers who wish to know more about the characters can research them quite easily. The timeframe gives an approximate indication of where the first scene takes place. In this case, the reference is Harry Potter at age six. Some are totally AU, going from age one or before that. The last update reference is a counter. When I write more of a particular shuttle, I will swap out the old one with the new one, keeping the number of individual chapter down.

If you're not scared off by now, feel free to enter the Enterprise Shuttlebay, and enjoy your stay!

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...

Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing. Writing style is quite lovely and grew on me slowly. I was also slightly reminded of Mark Twain, especially his book A Connecticut Ya...

Nichole P. Conard: The characters are well created and pull you along through the story. The plot is well thought out, with some interesting turns. I was unsure what was going to happen, several times in the story, which is a grand point, as who wants to know they have figured out the story correctly...once they ge...

Jean Tryon: As a beta, I found this story outstanding!! Plot, grammar, phraseology, etc Rachel gives us it all. She takes the story into the future from where due South ends. She is an exacting and thoughtful author.

alicialinglitter: The book was amazing! It was not exactly the cliche which is hard to find now a days but the unique plot just blew me away. Of course, there’s the cliche ending, but what’s a good book without one? Bravo

Beau Bayot: I like the way the story is told and really engages the reader.

Banner should also consider himself lucky both at h...
