Just wanted to tell you that I'm still alive and kicking, at least as much as I can be, and introduce an OC story of mine to you.
It's not a fanfiction and it's not in English (yet, since I decided I should try writing it in German in order to be able to publish it), but I am sort of proud of the idea, even though writing it is hard, especially in German. I haven't done that in a while and my writer's block still hasn't completely gone away, so I'm having a hard time finding the right words or any words at all.
Anyway, that's the basic story: Jane Doe (because we/I don't know her yet, not her age, not her exact personality, not her looks, only her sex) has lost her diaries (what exactly they contain, I don't know either) and several (I think 4) people find them. These people are busy living lives of their own and dealing (or not dealing) with their respective problems, but get drawn into the things happening in the diaries anyway. Some start investigating (Simon), some start living in them (Helena), some start meeting people they know from them (Alisa), some start falling in love with the writer and person of Jane Doe (Tommy)... These people find salvation in the books, confront their own reality with it, change and eventually meet.
And that's when we get to the dramatic finale...
Those are the characters... 'Pleased to make your acquaintance'.
Tommy - 19, completely messed up on so many levels; I stole him from real life and don't know quite yet whether I can actually use him or not, but the story does not work without him
Helena - 65, has lost her memory; I'm not quite sure about her, I always knew I wanted a character who looks like her, but I only just started 'finding' her story
Alisa - 32, mother and wife; she has quite an interesting connection with the others, always indirect, but definitely present, especially with Simon
Simon - 28, drug dealer and regular guy; his twin brother is damn important in the storyline, though I'm not quite sure about the rest of his plot
They somehow find out Jane Doe is a psychopath, who tries to get attention - a family (!) - with these 'diaries'. Tommy - who has fallen in love with what he though was her - kills himself, Alisa has lost her family in the course of the storyline, Helena still doesn't know who she is and Simons ends up in jail for putting his brother out of his coma - by killing him. Thus, everyone's far more miserable and alone in the end than they've been in the beginning.
