When you put it that way...
Hey, neither do I, and I'm still writing RR:I anyway. I figured it would be better not to worry, and just have fun making my own characterizations. It's lego-- the official story has always been meant at a backdrop for your imagination, and that imagination doesn't just stop at plastic bricks. Go ahead, try it. No-one beyond yourself even has to read it. If its good enough to publish, do it. If not, it's no loss. Just sit down and try writing.
It's not as much an issue of quality of writing as it is I don't trust myself with handling someone else's characters. I don't know enough about the franchise beyond what's shown in the PC game.
I suppose I might try it some time. I won't go near the named characters though.
I think I'll probably try doing some comic strips though. I mean I am focusing on my art right now.
Again, I must emphasize that my issue is not with my writing itself but with the subject matter. I could write a story easily- but I'd probably get everything possible wrong as far as canon goes. Hell, I already made a mistake like this in the LMS thread where I claimed that the LMS Explorer did not run on Energy Crystals prior to the incident...
But of course that's what the generic units are for.
I don't need to get into the backstory stuff if I just focus on the day-to-day antics of generic ground troops as they go about their business.
But that's for another time.
ATM I'm more concerned with showing off my art and maybe getting a little feedback on it.
