1. I have NO idea how some of the chapters are gonna go. If there are any games/fanfics you want me to make parodyies of, I'll try and include them if it doesn't take to long to play/read, so no ridiculously long fanfics like Fallout: Equestria. I'm also having a hard time trying to make it so my OC ends up staying with Twilight while in Ponyville. If I can get those chapters planned out, then I'd be able to get a few chapters written every couple of days.
If you want to use OCs it is up to you to make them work, no one else can as it isn't their character. Also I have to say if you are needing people to give you ideas of things you can then parody and need them to actually make scenes work for you claiming "you have NO idea", you are going about writing the wrong way. I have influence as everyone does but I only use things if I know it will work and I think of it and I know it will impact the story. Just inserting stuff because you can is NOT how you write.
If you can't think of things this badly for a story you need to either think more of how the story can go, change the previous parts of the story, rewrite the story as a whole, or if it really isn't going to work scrap the story and do something else. I have scrapped many stories myself as I wasn't pleased with their development. You can't force a story out, if it doesn't have the detail it will just be bad. I have seen this happen.
2. My Microsoft Word trial is expired
Get Open Office, that is what I use to write.
Now, if I can get around those 2 problems
Don't really want to put you down here, but if you aren't able to write the story alone like most writers are able to do, and need help with making the story. I wouldn't start thinking about it being a massively received story. I personally have no interest in ever reading a forced story, and many others share that opinion. Sharing the odd idea with fellow writers is fine, but it sounds like you are asking for a lot more than that.
I am perfectly fine with people writing stories, hay I am a writer myself, but as a writer I personally do take some offense to the way you are openly stating you have "NO idea" then asking people to tell you everything, what? You want us to write the story for you? If you can't use your own mind for writing a story you can't write original stories, simple as that, not everyone can.
I help a fellow writer with some thoughts every once in a while, we talk about our stories what we like what we pick out as interesting etc. as we talk we pick up things to help us. We don't go "you should write this, make this character do this, tell this person to stand here. Make this character die" etc. That isn't sharing ideas. In our talks we mention things like "this character really does show sorrow with this" which as a writer we then think "Yes she did show sorrow, the way she showed it could be developed or I could give her some backstory why she would think like this, maybe something happened to her in the past or between a set time, maybe she ran into another character? Maybe she injured herself before coming and the pain from it is causing this sorrow." That is how you build on ideas and share things, using your own mind not by getting people to tell you things.
I went on a large tangent here, but I seriously have to say I heavily dislike what I read here. Writers write their own stories.
