Knights of Andreas: General Info Thread

Recommended Posts

Now that it's over, a few quick hits on planning/writing the series:

  • The beginning of Part V: I always planned on a big shocker to start the season. My first plan was a Maverick trade out of nowhere. As you all know I instead foreshadowed that only to shift gears to Rose's release. The initial idea there was actually to have Rose die in a car crash after being released, bit I felt that was a bit much.
  • Planning the final seasons: My first outline was to do seven seasons in total, with the 6th unfolding as it basically did (earthquake and undefeated season), then the 7th would be flashback-heavy (as Part VI ended up being) and involve the Knights on a bizarre losing streak that got Phillips fired. I never got too far into this idea, ultimately deciding to combine everything into a jam-packed 6th season.
  • The end: I knew a big part of the ending of KoA would be the resolution of the Schneider/Phillips tension. My first idea was Phillips pairing with Javad to "take down" Schneider somehow, but I came to see that as a little cheesy, and not a proper end to the series. So, we instead got the compromise that actually happened.
  • Random ideas that never made it into the text or got cut: a chapter where the team holds a skills competition to boost morale, a storyline where Brock tests positive for cocaine, a flashback where Bishop (playing at FSU) coaches up his teammates' confidence

I wasn't replying to you, son. You're a very angry little pepperoni man.

Ok, in all seriousness, I am considering bringing this back for a temporary run. It would be very short, 6-8 chapters, and essentially just a deeper look at the epilogue of the series. But it would follow the Knights throughout a season (probably 2020) like past seasons have.

As a writer, I would love to revisit these characters again, get in their heads, visualize the Knights taking the field, hear the Farmers Field crowd roar, see locker room banter, watch Phillips and Schneider go back and forth. I have some plot ideas, and have had some since I published the last chapter.

But I'll only go forward with it if y'all are interested. I feel satisfied with how KoA ended and am more than happy to leave it at that. What say you?

As someone who started writing a series of fanfictions based off of a dumb joke on stream, just go for it. You know you want to. Eat the forbidden apple you leg having bitch.
