I am trying to write a story with some supernatural ,something dealing with the History of the Philippine?
My story I am trying to write is basically about this half Filipino half Spanish young teenage girl who is the daughter of a Spanish general/governor of a province like Rizal.Her father is best pals with the governor of the Philippines-Japan trading company who is also a Spanish and has a son who is half Japanese half Spanish named Jin who she is childhood friends with and later begins to falls in love with.
But war struggles in the Philippines happen and she tries/wishes to make the Philippines a better place along with the help of Jin.She is also suppose to have the gift of purification a power like very similar to Kagome from InuYasha but helps uses it some how.Jin and her Learn the Native Orient powers/martial arts along with Filipino revolutionist using it to help make Philippines an independent nation.In the end she dies for betraying her father ,or something or either getting murdered or revolting for freedom and in the end gets reincarnated in one of her descendants.The problem is I want her reincarnation to be the granddaughter of her only sibling/brother .So he can tell the story of her and recognize that his granddaughter is the reincarnation of his sister.Jin is also suppose to be reincarnated.I want the reincarnations in the present day as young teens.So I don't know which to decide either using the end of the Spanish-Filipino war which ended in 1898 or as the Japanese take over Philippines started 1940s and ends sometime in the 1940s.I can't make the grandfather of the reincarnation/brother of the main girl so old like close to 100 or like 99.
I need help fixing my plot and I need suggestions or stories quite similar if you could help and sorry ^_^ um....about how long it is.
I say the takeover, takeovers are always more popular and appealing.
Your plot seems a little complex i didn't follow it...remember book plots can't be like life. They have to be simple enough to make sense in the person's mind. I would think this through again and see what fat you can trim

A personal statement usually includes the following. You need a good attention grabber. In general you want your essay to follow this order:
Paragraph 1-2 attention grabber. Think of an experience in your life that really showcases who you are. Be detailed. Discuss something signifcant in your life. It could be anything. Or discuss why you want to be in your profession or what story inspired you to study what you are studying.
Paragraph 3-4. Highlight your academics: GPA, classes. What skills you learned in class that will help in succeeding in college. Awards and honors that you have received. Sports or clubs that you are in.

When movies are based on historical events, do they have an obligation to be accurate to what happened?
I am going to give three examples of movies -
Pearl Harbour - which depicts a difference in the lead up to the attack by japanese and atrributes incorrect quotes and actions to historical people, changed to appease Asian audiences.
U-571 - which changed the troops that captured the engima code to American instead of British, again to appeal to audience members
King Arthur - which for the sake of modern values, changed Guinevere into a warrior who fought along side King Arthur and for some reason knew whoop ass martial arts.
This is the lot that spring first to mind, but ther are countless others.
My question is, where is the line between artistic licence and historical accuracy? Is it ok for films to portray things that did not happen, or to change certain aspects of the history they are repeating to appeal to demographics?
Or are we too uptight to feel like this and can we play "what if" games with history in the expression of art or telling a story?
Hi Caffeine Fiend, first of all, I'd like to say that I'm not a student or a professor of film studies. I'm just an average guy who likes to watch quality movies during his pastimes.
Regarding your question, I believe that filmmakers do have the obligation to stick to accuracy when it comes to stories based on REAL historical events; else, they would incur the wrath of critics and history buffs alike. Of course, this is the IDEAL aim for making historical film, but many filmmakers intentionally do not reach for this goal. Please note the word "intentionally." They don't reach for this goal not because they are unable to, but because of certain considerations such as artistic expression, audience reaction and budget, to name a few. So they tweak the film in order to make it conform artistically & economically.
You may ask, what has budget and audience reaction got to do with the accuracy of a historical film? I say, a lot. A film with budgetary constraints will compromise the accuracy of a film in its props, costume, and location departments. As for audience reaction, just imagine if the actors were really to stay true to the time of a story, say, in the 11th century, then they would have to speak the language and lingo of the era. I bet you that it would hurt your ears to hear ancient people speak.
So my point of view in all this is that we should allow filmmakers to do alterations as long as:
1.) they don't hack (or hack too much) the unfolding of events from its true historical storyline,
2.) the actors don't depart too much from the known personalities of the historical figures that they're portraying,
3.) they don't tamper with the real outcome of historical events (this has something to do with the moral obligation of filmmakers: they shouldn't be biased when portraying historical films.)
* "King Arthur" is a case of a historical film with a blurred history. This is why filmmakers were very liberal in their portrayal of this legend. Btw, I don't think we can even consider "King Arthur" as history. It's more like mythology. Historians can't agree among themselves on what the Arthurian legend was based on, or if it was even based upon some historical person or event!!
Additional: None of the things I said above will matter if the film is a historical spoof!!
And oh, another additional which I forgot to say earlier: there is a difference between historical fact, and historical fiction. When depicting historical facts (meaning events in history that REALLY took place) through film, a filmmaker has less to no liberties at all. But when it comes to historical fiction (such as "King Arthur,") a filmmaker has more to unlimited liberties.
