I made this thread for people that cannot write complete stories or don't have the time to, but want to contribute some ideas for those who write fanfics. I would suggest throwing in snippets of stuff, like scenes that would fit a comedy skit, but they can be adapted for use in something bigger. Here's mine for example:

Leela: We're going to a Modern Times fair. Wanna come?
Fry: No thanks, I wouldn't know what it's about anyway.
Leela: You may like it, it's about things people did in your century.

The Modern Times fair would be like a Renaissance fair, but with stuff related to the 20th century. Of course, a 31st century rendition of it would be somewhat innacurate, so it would have desctruction derbies instead of jousting, with guys using shoulder-mounted cannons. This is just a scene for a potential fanfic. Anyone's welcome to pitch in whatever they want.

I got quite a few, but I can't think of them all right now. For starters:

* Leela manages to save a planet from Zapp's idiocy. She is rewarded with captainship of the Nimbus, and honor in the DOOP, while Zapp is stripped of rank. He goes to Fry, who misses Leela. Can two dimwits actually pull off a plan to get Zapp back in charge?

That is merely the outline, you fill in/change as necessary.

I like that AF, that's awesome. I've got little idea bits too but the only one i can think of at the moment (considering i've just woken up) is that i have noticed in the show that Leela seems to have a fear of being backed into corners. I'd like to see that explained. Most phobias have triggers. Not all though, i have a bee phobia that is completely unprovoked, but that is besides the point.

Unfortunately, whenever I have an idea, it ends up sounding suspicously like a real episode (who can say "Brannigan Begin Again"?).

I have provoked fears. Scared of drowning because I've had drowning dreams, scared of bees because of the stingers, scared of heights because of the fall... the list goes on and on, but every fear is relatively mild.

I always have bits of scenes I'd like to see in fan fics and stuff, and if I discard them from my next fan fic, I'll give them a mention here.  smile

Lots of things provoke my fears; I'm afraid ofsnowboarding downa big mountain because my friend broke their arm and leg doing that, scared of spiders because of stories, scared of Asylum because of that Fry avatar...

one little scene thats been in my head for a bit starts off with Leela in her kitchen doing some general tidying up and she hears a noise so she looks up and sees Nibbler standing on the counter staring at her and growling rather fiercely. Alarmed she takes a step back which just seems to piss him off more. His hair stands up and he hunches down like he's about to jump at her. She's seriously freaked now and tells him to knock it off cause he's scaring her but as soon as she says this he lunges at her. She jerks to the side causing him to sail harmlessly past her, only to land on the face of the knife welding psycho killer that had been standing directly behind her the whole time.

Love most(if not all)of the ideas i've heard.

Venus,ur fan fic sounds great but not enought of a story line to make and actually story(with like a plot and stuff).

Asylm-Fry, ur story sounds awesome.Great plot!If u get a chance to read it tell me where to find it and ill pitch it!

Just Chris, ur idea sounds great too, but like I said to Venus there needs to be like more of a problem(maybe u just need to elaborate on ur idea but what do i know?lol)

(The above is just my opinion,if i've offened you I'm sry but thats why u posted it here right?For someone to critisize it?)

Here's something I'd like to see.  Between Farnsworth Parabox, and Devil's Hands, something subtly changed between Fry and Leela.  By that, I mean, she seems to not be quite so uptight, (at least the Leela we've seen would'nt have eaten a Buggaloo like that before, or maybe I'm assuming too much...but I digress).  What I'd like to see, and I'd do it if I had the time, but, if BumbleBeeTheta, Kryten, AstroZombie, Futurama_Hil, Femjesse? If any of you would like this idea, I'd like to see a fic, where Fry finally has it out with Leela.  Not quite like A Second Chance, which was a great story, but one where Fry, finally has enough of Leela, and her sometime, frankly, boorish behavior.  Maybe something like:

Fry:  Leela, could you hold up a second, please?

Leela: Okay Fry, but hurry it up, I've gotta get the ship ready for our trip tomorrow.

They step into the lounge, and Fry sits on the couch inviting Leela to sit with him.  She remains standing.

Fry: Leela, what's your problem with me?  I mean, what is it, huh?  Do you think I was just being irresponsible when I gave you my oxygen, or the 2 weeks I stayed with you in the hospital?  I did that because I love you, and, you still treat me worse than any of the other jerks you've hung out with!  So, tell me, I really wanna know, why can't you accept me for who I am?

Leela: (A little upset)Fry, I...

Anybody that wants to follow up on that idea can go with it from there.  Or you can go in a completely different track, but, I still think that Leela acted warmer to Fry in the last ep than ever before, even before the concert and deafness.  Maybe I'm just imagining it, but...   smile

Can Fry be said psycho-killer? And then it turns out he was going to be using the knife to chop meat, which attracted Nibbler?

And then it could open into an episode! Woo!

But enough of that, I have an idea now... it's very, um... special. Sounds like a second generation Futurama thing, I'll probably do it myself. I did draw an awesome pic of Leela, Fry, and.. the kid I haven't named yet... damn it what's a good name for Leela's daughter? Ya know what, screw the picture, she looks like a toddler in it, I've changed my mind. Leela's daughter will henceforth be 18 years of age (28+18=... 46! Wow! Fry will be a hell of a lot older in this... unless...    evil laugh ) Yup, leaving Fry out of the lovely little limelight (let's all take a wild guess what I've gone and done with him, hmm?)

1: It has been years since <insert Leela's daughter's name here> had been abandoned at Cookieville Minimum Security Orphanage. 18 years, in fact. Becoming an adult in the society, she is free to make her way in the world, and her biggest quest is to find out what happened to her parents.

Meanwhile, on a distant planet, an anarchaic empire has slowly been building up in the shadows of society. Starting with earth, they plan to destroy civilization... unless a certain one-eyed DOOP leader can stop them.

When <insert Leela's daughter's name here> and Leela cross paths, it can only be to do one thing - defeat the new threat to the universe. But they're going to find out much more than they bargained for on the way...

*surveys episode outline* I did start a good storyboard for this. Aw, what the hell, I'll give this a go. Anybody want to help (and find out the secret secrets of the plot that I make up as I go along)?

Wonderbee31: Lovely idea, but shippy romance is not my thing. I did notice that change though, but my everlasting hatred of the last episode makes me refuse to acknowledge that it ever happened. I regard it as a Tale of Interest.

Also: Fry 'missing'... heh heh heh... that's what you all think now...   tongue

I'm sorry for not mentioning you in my list Asylum-Fry, but I remembered you saying that you didn't like really shippy stuff, and, I figured it could get really shippy.  Still, it may have been a what-if ep., but we didn't see the machine, so for the time being, it has to count as being "real", at least for me.  You know, it would be wild if later on DXC or MG said in an interview that it was supposed to have been a what if show, but they got cancelled, so...  hmpf

I like that idea of yours, with Leela as the DOOP leader, Fry missing?, and a daughter, hmmm...  If this does come about, I really look forward to it.
 
Thanks for the kind words.  smile

I mentioned this idea in another thread but no one has done it yet.  It's sort of like the Red Dwarf episode "Back to Reality," or a Fry-based version of "The Sting:"

Fry wakes up to find himself in Applied Cryogenics, and learns that it's January of 2000.  Either someone realized he wasn't supposed to be there or his family found him, and he was revived.  All of his experiences in the future were dreams he had while frozen.  The dreams were inspired by a popular TV show called Futurama, which is about someone from the 20th century living in the future.  Fry becomes obsessed with the show because he wants his life in the future back.  He travels out to California, where it's filmed, and his depression increases when he meets the cast and sees the sets; he realizes that it really is all just a TV show.  But of course, in the end we find that the whole story was a dream, and Fry is still in the future.  Maybe in the end we would learn why he had the dream and how he got out of it (it could be either a normal dream or something more like in "The Sting").

The story could show Fry's reactions to people talking about what he thinks are his own experiences.  It could have jokes based on the idea that Futurama is actually popular in this world.  It could explain how human actors dress up as and play characters like Bender and Zoidberg, and show the familiar locations as nothing but sets.  (Maybe an artist would like to draw some of that?)  And the differences between the real characters and the actors who play them could be funny and disturbing.

Alright, here's a thought:
Somehow the entire Planet Express crew is flash frozen,along with a few supporting characters(Labarbra, Nibbler, Hermes' son, Cubert, a few others) They all get thawed out 1000 years. Now they know how Fry feels. The story would center on how the PE crew deals with now being in the year 4004.

And unable to return? At all? Now how will Fry feel? Just when he's getting used to 3004... *sigh*

Leela's daughter's name is now Desdemona... I like it, it means 'of the devil'. How... um... well, it isn't fitting, she's a good kid.

AF It's no fun if the psycho killer is Fry. The whole point is she's supposed to be in actual danger but is saved by her pet. Kinda a Lassie thing but without the bad music and slow motion run through a field.

Your story sounds pretty good, but i just cannot see Leela ever abandoning her child. Not after what she went through, she would never put her own kid through that.

There'd be good reason if her child had one of those crappy Disney destinies forseen by the Nibblonians to save the universe.

Did I just give the secret away? Damn. You may want to look at my intro, I hid it in spoilers on the Fan Fiction Raviews thread.

Or take a look-see at what th- oh I'm not going to reveal who's talking (though by now my plot is so see-through you know who it is, heh heh we all do).

“Hello, Earthican,” he addressed in a very quiet, wheezing voice. She saw dust motes all around him, probably choking the air. She breathed a sigh of relief; he hadn’t intercepted her little computer only, this was a worldwide message.

“Your smart-assed DOOP captain underestimates my followers, and myself. If she wants me to show my face, she’ll come over and pull the hood off my head herself. And in order to do that, she may have to resort to a little thing known as Brannigan Tactics.” She could see his teeth glint in the faint light. He was smiling. “Yes, Turanga, I touched a nerve, didn’t I? I know you’re watching, I know the whole world is watching. And the last words I have to say to them all?”

He paused, and the silence became almost unbearable for Desdemona. “I hope you’re all prepared to die.”


Scared? Nah, didn't think so. My story sucks but I am determined to finish it. I can use any help that people can offer...

I will return in the morning to see if people give a damn, have any ideas, suggestions, and whatnot. Good night!   sleep

this isn't really an idea, it's more like a theme. I'd like to see a story where Leela is forced to rely on Fry for her own survival. As in whether or not she survives whatever situation they happen to be in hinges directly on how Fry handles things. And i'm not talking about like in L&R where he saves her but she has no idea of it until later. I would like her to be aware of the situation.

Like an aforeplanned situation? That calls for a crappy Disney destiny. And some talking Nibbler.

not necessarily. She could simply be seriously injured during a delivery where zoidburg is not present to patch her up and Fry has to take care of her.

Or, if 'crappy Disney destiny' and talking Nibbler is what your after, someone could find out about Fry's importance and then hold Leela hostage in exchange for Fry doing stuff

That gives me an idea- basically Venus's idea- but there's someone trying to kill Leels and Fry (and/ or Nibbler) have to save her. Though each time they do it's in sucha way that Leela doesn't know they're the ones actually saving her. Just one of those random thoughts I get.  hmpf

I had another idea. Like, i Just had it so its not that well thought out, it's only really the middle i couldn't think of the beginning or the end but what i have so far is, someone for whatever reason had captured Leela while she was walking to work with the intention of holding her ransom, but when Leela informs him that she doesn't have anyone in her life who would be willing to pay for her (she tells him she's an orphan so that her parents can't be dragged into the situation, it would just panic them and they're too poor to pay any sort of ransom, if mutants can even exchange their currency at all) and on top of that the ransomer realizes that she activated a tracking device in her wristcom and for all he knows the police could be coming. So since he had never had any intention of letting her live anyway (cause she had pulled his mask off during the initial struggle when he was abducting her, had seen his face and could therefor identify him) he handcuffs her to a railing and sets the place on fire and then leaves her alone to burn alive. Meanwhile when Leela didn't show for work and didn't answer her phone Fry gets worried and insists something be done, so the professor tries to track her wrist com, which turns out to be fairly easy since by this time Leela had already turned on the tracker in her wrist com. So they all set off to save her but when they get there the building is in flames and there are fire trucks and news cameras all over, but non of the firemen had gone inside since the building was supposed to be long abandoned. Fry alerts the firemen to Leela's possible presence in the building but they refuse to go in saying it's to late, the building is way to unstable at this point and that nothing can be done. Fry refuses to accept this and rushes into the building himself. He finds her and she's ok for the moment, the fire isn't close enough to her to physically injure her, however she is very weak from smoke inhalation. So he frees her, picks her up and carries her from the building. As soon as they make it out of the front door the whole building collapses. Which translates into a brilliant photo op for all the press people who take full advantage of it. Fry gets Leela (who is barely conscious) to an ambulance where she is checked out and given oxygen and eventually released. Well the pictures and video the press had gotten make headlines the next day making Fry the new town hero. When he is later interviewed on the news he is asked why he did it and he responds by saying how much he loves her and how he would rather die then live in a world without her. He also mentions how the only reason they are not together is because of her reluctance. Women all over start sending him fan letters (since most single women would kill for a guy that loves them enough to rush into a burning building even after the firemen themselves won't take the risk) but Leela starts receiving hate mail and even a few death threats (yeah i know it sounds far fetched, but if people will sue McDonald's for making them fat, then it stands to reason this could happen as well)At one point someone vandalizes her apt by spray painting hate messages on her front door. This prompts an irate Fry to go back on the news and make a public demand that Leela be left alone cause "If i can run into a burning building for her then there's no reason why i wouldn't kick the crap out of anyone that threatens her" This makes Fry an even bigger hero to NNY's population of women and he gets even more mail. Leela does too, the only difference being that all her letters are now anonymous. Then one night she comes home to find that her apt has once again been vandalized but this time someone actually broke in. Not feeling safe enough to stay the night she grabs Nibbler and goes to the one place she can think of to go: Fry's. He instantly takes her in. But he actually handles things correctly. he doesn't hit on her, instead he insists that she have the bed for the night (she argues against this but he insists) he comforts her and even makes her hot chocolate. His extra niceness to her leaves her feeling comfortable enough to sit beside him and talk about the day he had saved her. She finally admits that while she was sitting there, handcuffed, thinking she was about to die, her first thoughts where of her family and how her death would effect them, but her last thoughts were of Fry, but she's not sure what that means. She also tells him how much it meant to her to have him be her rescuer, cause it had never even occurred to her that she would be important enough to anybody to have them do something like that for her.

and that's as far as i got. Obviously it would be a shipper fic. And i would hope for a happy ending.

I have all the main plot points figured out, it's just the filler-in-between stuff i'm stuck on.

Yeah Venus, you could have Amy come in and sit down with Fry, and have this conversation:

Amy: Fry, you know that the doctors say Leela'll probably never wake up, why don't you go on home, I'll stay with her for a while.

Fry:  I can't leave her  now, it just wouldn't feel right.

Then Amy would ask Fry what he's talking to Leela about, and why he's staying with her, when Leela doesn't feel the same about him.  Maybe, he could tell her about the message in the stars, about the oxygen giving, about how Leela makes him feel, and his hopes for the future.  Instead of it being Amy, it could be Leela's nurse, who's become accustomed to Fry in the two weeks he's stayed there.  Maybe she could give him encouragement, when he feels like giving up?

Maybe.

I really like that FH and WB, but that only takes up one days worth of time and i got 2 weeks to fill. A conversation like that with Amy would fit best a little more towards the end around day 10 or so. As embarrassing as this is to admit, i'm stuck on day 2.

Exactly how long are these "days" going to be?  It probably won't be possible to have something significant for each day, so just have him talk about anything.  But remember, too much "filler" will have a negative effect on the story, because there'll be too much time between the important events.  Of course, you may find that the filler becomes more significant when you write it.

i have no set length for the 'days' and i can skip over a few days alltogether, which i plan to do more when i get to the end, but since im on the second day i can't just skip over it. and ive got nothing for days 3,11,12,13,and 15 which isn't that big a deal i can skip some of the later ones but for days 2,4,10, and 14 i have short little scenes that are important but i can't have a whole day be represented as single scenes.

hi all !

I like your ideas but I am not able to write a whole fic in english. It's hard enough in my mother tongue.

speaking of which, I'm currently writing a tragi-comic fic settled after The Devil's Hands... it's put into verse (well I try) and written theater-like. I don't know if it's worth the effort, but maybe it could be adapted in english.

here is the plot :
The Devil comes back with Leela's contract. He wants to marry her again (for some reason. oh wait, after all he is evil !). Leela tries to prove that the contract is invalid, but all proof has been destroyed by the Devil (even Bender's memory). She finds a way to avoid her commitment with him by marrying Fry (Hermes created a false contract, signed prior to the Devil's one, a long time ago, which Fry and Leela, for some reason, would have forgotten...ok hard to believe but with a little humour...   big grin )
but during the marriage, the Devil comes back again : he just found the solution for him to marry Leela. But it's too late ! F&L are just married !
and then "coup de théâtre" ! he says it's not a problem, since polygamy is declared not anticonstitutional by the supreme court (see Freedom Day, Zoidberg's trial...)   eek
then he marries Leela who becomes polyandrous.   love   love

I called my fic "La Damnation de Leela" (easy to translate : "Leela's Damnation" )
3 acts, 12 or 13 scenes + prologue & epilogue

Well, told like this, it's not really funny, but I remember someone's post (sorry I don't remember all) about how to write a fic. It says a good method was to write the rough plot, then develop each event in same style, before the final attempt. Then and only then you can insert all the jokes you've thought about by writing the plot. That's the method I use, and for me it works.
That's why I do't talk about the jokes : it would be long to explain and many couldn't be translated.    frown 


well I may have another idea. I had this one before The Devil's Hands... had been broadcasted. It was how I thought this ep would be.

Maybe later...

Hi Zoop!  I bet it wouldn't be hard to find someone around here who knows your native language and decent english who could translate your fiction for you.  And if not, go ahead and write it out in English yourself!  We have some good editors around, and besides, your english is already better than the english in some 'fics I've read.  laff hee hee!

hi Mango

thanx for my English  big grin but I really don't feel ready to write something in this language (verse or not). actually I write in verse because my narrative style is ...  puke

if someone is interested to adapt this plot into script or something different, well, let's go !

oh my ! I just reread my previous post. I hope I didn't offend anyone with Leela being polygamist  hmpf

Ayayayayaya! I have an idea!

We know that Philip Fry II was the first man on Mars, right? And Farnsworth and Fry are his only living relatives... so what if there was some sort of mix-up that actually puts all of Mars under Farnsworth's or Fry's (or both) possession, including Wong Ranch and Mars U, etc etc. The Wongs are now homeless and somehow lose a lot of money moving out or something...

The main idea of the story would be that the Wongs learn that money isn't everything (Amy in particular?) and maybe Fry would attempt to woo Leela again with money this time (since he didn't back in Fishful of Dollars). Ya know? Just help me develop this idea!

How about one where Fry, Leela, and Bender make a delivery to a prehistoric jungle planet that rejects technology, and the creatures eat humans and robots? 

Or how about that one idea I mentioned before where the Prof. sends Fry, Bender, and Leela to Botland Yard to pose as gardeners?  Then opportunity strikes when they get word via newspaper where the missing Poopenhimer diamond is stolen and the Robot Mafia are the prime suspects?  Later in the story, Fry accidently swollows the diamond!

Here's another, how about one where Bender becomes a race car driver, and Fry keeps betting that Bender will win only to lose all his money! 
And becomes a target with a Loan Shark bot!

aaand once again i've hit a brick wall. I knew there was a reason i've never written a fic before. I've got the entire crew in a room together and absolutely nothing for them to talk about. I need some random topic of conversation. Nothing emotional or anything like that, just mundane everyday conversation, only futurized. The scene is, it's day 5 of Leela's coma, everyone has dropped by to visit and their just talking about...nothing at this point which is my problem. God i suck at filler.

How about the crew deciding whether to tell Leela's parents or not? And who should go and tell them if they do?
