Heck, even i been suffering from the writer's sickness! But hopefully i might find the time to write one.
When i do want to write one, i usually get busy or lose my thoughts! But hopefully the fan fics will pick back up and if we're lucky, someone might write a story thats so juicy, it make you wanna grill a steak cuz the story was that good!!!
This is lilrick and im out!

I seen several fanfics that are written that have some very good ACM descriptions. You just have to have a good imagination and the ability to put this down in the written word.. Have you ever read Dale Brown, or Richard Hermann books??
The problem with Ace Combat Fan Fiction is that Aerial combat does not usually translate well to the page. It is very dry and technical; and hard for the average joe to make it interesting. In the Fic I'm working on, there is almost no air combat involved. Hopefully, I can get the ball rolling on this one.
I think the people that have written fanfics in the past either lose interest, or have writer's block.

Dale Brown is slightly better with characters, but GOD does he get bogged down in technical crap. I found myself flipping pages constantly while reading "Flight of the Old Dog" due to the massive amount of explanations regarding B-52 combat systems. It got really repetitive after a while.
But his air combat descriptions were pretty good. I don't know how he'd write a dogfight. "Day of the Cheetah" is next on my list, so I'll find out then.
But if anyone finds an author that writes GOOD air to air engagements and has 3 dimensional characters, let me know.

2 others that are somewhat good at discribing fictional combat operations Tom Clancy and Ian Slater
Ian Slater's writing was horrible especially his World War III series of books which I chucked into the garbage. The best story of what WWIII might be like was Red Storm rising. When I decided to do my fanfic for the Usean war 2004-2005, I wanted to do it as a chronology of the events because I felt I could do a better job in that form rather than from a character perspective. What also gave me my inspiration were all those news articles and such that came out in those early days before AC4 was released. It hasn't been easy as I am still struggling to this day to put this all together in book form so that it will be something interesting for people to read. I had also did a story or a report on the Fort Grace class carriers of the ISAF Navy which is a part of my book as well as a section dedicated to the Ulysses asteroid which currently I am in the process of redoing.

Is an Ace Combat fanfic without aerial combat possible?
Of course it is. Contrary to what the games tend to suggest, there is more to the how the universe runs then blowing up stuff in aircraft.
