So I have still got those two sites stuck in my head. In fact it was probably the most fun I have ever had on the net.

For those of you who don't know when the internet first came out it was mostly on AOL but Nintendo was one of the companies that decided to get off AOL and host their own website. There they had loads of information and the best thing a Bulletin Board Service (BBS or what we now just plainly call Forums). The best part of this was on their AOL site and continuing in their own site they basically did interactive fan fiction. This was where they'd take one of their properties and allow people to write their own stories with their own characters. It was great! But slowly Nintendo started to pull away from that and eventually people went their own paths.

A group of them first went to Kupopolis which basically started off as Zelda Fan Fiction but started adding Chrono Trigger and many other RPGish games into the fold.

Another group which I became part of went to create VividImaginaion. At first we wanted to just continue doing our stories but rather than continue with fan fiction we wanted to create our own stuff. Not only that we wanted Vi to be an artistic website that would push the boundaries of the web at the time. Sadly it never got that far and in the end died, but not before creating awesome works of fiction.

Why do I mention all this you may ask? Well I've always loved those sites and always loved that form of writing that I am trying to start my own collaborative fiction/fan fiction/role play fiction website. I hope it will be more than just a passing fancy too. The site is readpanda.com so far I don't really have anything on it (still working on the social aspects... well right now still working on getting the site usable in general) but I hope to soon have interesting stuff.
