    Where We Live And Work [GtI]

    Hey everyone. It took quite a while due to... weird issues with the site, but I brought yet another story. This was published originally for PokéCommunity's Get Together 2020 contest, with the prompt "home". And for extra bonus, it uses the same cast as my previous Gates story, Making the...

    2019 Fanfiction Awards - RESULTS

    Here's to the authors who won their categories for a work very well done! Umbramatic, Spiteful Murkrow, Ambyssin, Nebula Dreams and others, there's a provision of very good stories from their hand to enjoy in this trying quarantine.

    Continuing on from the small victories that count, that is, now coming into Ch. 60 and 61. The most important thing to have is, always, good Nidoran screentime! So let's see how that goes. We start with a meeting, one of a kind that I can understand why Crom would rather miss, so Team Traveller...

    Forever Catch (a celebratory two-shot)

    Thanks for taking the time to do this. In particular because this was intended to be a short story buuuuut it ended up being long. You're not wrong re: International Day of Photography. Pokéball mechanics in the Suocéverse are somewhat different from game canon as they need to and I have not...

    The Character Interview Thread (V3)

    Volyrina returns her attention to the ping pong of questions after a time of absentmindedness; a few Pokémon have come and gone in the meantime and she reflects for a while over the supposed Giratina's reaction to her question. Truth be told, she can't really feel better at the Rayquaza's tone...

    A Lizard in the Garden (TCATS One-Shot)

    The title and checking that it was a oneshot called my attention to I gave this a look, this reads like an interesting story with a particular first person POV plus plushies! Who doesn't like plushies. And I mostly wanted to comment on this story because it stresses hard enough one little thing...

    The Character Interview Thread (V3)

    There is a rock fountain alone at the junction of two dirt roads. Not much can be seen miles around, though there is a small wooden post nearby with indications to reach a nearby town. The one other thing around, right by the fountain, is a female Fraxure counting coins and otherwise idling...

    Making the World Go 'Round [GtI]

    This has taken a bit long but I wanted to say thanks for taking the time to leave that review. On to a few answers to questions: You did ask once, I think, since you were one of the proofreaders to work on making the story understandable. Quintales was (were?) a measure of weight for grain and...

    Playfield Redux: 10th Anniversary Version

    Thanks for the commentary @Virgil134 ! It was about time I got to give Berecien more proper screentime after the work you and @Spiteful Murkrow have done with him. Working on giving the two characters a more well defined frame for their capabilities of the race was a challenge. I wanted to...

    Continuing from where I was left reviewing 59, now that that can be a thing. First thing to note about the next scene is that it has a serious, nifty piece of screentime for Team Valatos. I'm told that Valatos needs more screentime. Well, for starters the day has not gone well for them but...

    Story Writing in Limbo

    Oh man you got Farla'd. Or anti-Farla'd as it is the case. You must have published something right off the bat in January wich is when these groups get out of the bunker. You say you have been off the forums for a while? Perhaps out of most of the fandom as well? Grab some popcorn you are in...

    Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Reflecting Balance

    Congratulations! You did it, you posted this chapter before the New Year~ Now I can't go about making memes about "don't ask me when I'll post new chapter I don't have 2020 vision I am reminded that I should catch up to this sometime since, basically, I stopped far back somewhere in Ch. 10 or...

    Playfield Redux: 10th Anniversary Version

    Merry Delayed Saturnalias, dear readers. Since it'd be a bummer that the year was spent without me publishing more stuff here, I decided to update one of my older stories posted in Serebii. "Playfield " was published a good 10 (ten) years ago after being originally published as a submission...

    Breaking news, after a bit of prodding from @Virgil134, I managed to continue working on the rest fo Ch. 58 review and some of 59 that had pending. Admittedly in order to do this one I had to go to the AO3 version, not Serebii, because for stories that go really long-winded and are also...

    I welcome exposition. Embrace it. You merely adopt exposition as a tool but I was born in it. As a worldbuilder, exposition is *the* thing, and at some points it is more intrinsic than the plot during the story. A good exposition rarely ever comes in the form of heavy infodumps except when that...
