Okee. My first original fic. Well, first I intend to follow through with. :P
It's about a girl, and until she is 14, everything is normal. Well, her dad is dead from a car accident, but all seems normal anyway. And then, one day her mum dies. In front of her. And before she dies, she tells this girl something. Something that will change her life forever. So she sets off to avenge her mother. Meets people who join her. And...well...yeah.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon 'em. I studied that in English last year. Written by the one and only Shakespeare, yet said by the countless actors who played Malvolio in Twelfth Night. Yes, Twelfth Night. The one with the cross dresser.
For some reason, I never forgot that line. Maybe it was because somehow I knew it would mean something to me. Maybe, I just liked the sound. But that doesn't matter. What matters is...so little. People rush about, always looking for, and wanting something, or someone. But there's so much more to every than that. People worry over tiny, insignificant things, though somewhere, someone's dying. I used to be like them. But not anymore.
I can tell, from first hand experience, what one of the worst things in the world to go through is. Losing a loved one in front of you. I know losing a loved one anytime is horrible, and has an indescribable pain, but having experienced both, I can safely say seeing a loved one pass on, right in front of your eyes is ten times worth. If that's even possible.
I wasn't born great. Nor did I achieve greatness. But I had greatness thrust upon me, and I had to learn to cope. Somehow.
Well, as to adding things in - as you've only given a small sample and a skeleton of the plot, I can't really tell yet. I'm sure you'll be fine - just watch Mary Sue-ness, of course! Character development is also crucially important, and is something to watch in a piece like this. I think you can do it! ^_^
