I have a question about a Godzilla fanfiction I want to write. Do I need to describe Godzilla's appearence? Or if I leave the name of the design (examples being KiryuGoji, FinalGoji, ShodaiGoji) at the top of the page, will that be enough?
If you want to specifiy in the exact Godzilla incarnation in the synopsis to help readers picture the action in their head, that's fine. I don't think it's important however, since more readers would probably rather fill the image with their favorite appearance. Within the story itself, I wouldn't name drop films to describe characters or objects. It would be more effective to use original descriptive adjectives like you would find in an traditional storytelling.
