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

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!
