Author's Notehi there. i'm kacklord, though if you know me at all you probably know me as qva from the discord. i'm pretty fresh to this whole fanfic scene and in fact have never done anything serial at all before, so this is a totally new experience to me. i had the idea for this in the shower the other day and thought what the hell, i might as well write it. so while i'm not new to writing in general, this format is definitely going to be experimental for me... i'm used to having unlimited time to revise and rewrite, so i guess we'll see how this goes. i'm not sure i can promise any specific release schedule at this point but i'm going to try to get stuff out as fast as i can, for some value of "fast."
i've only read one pokémon fanfiction to completion before (morphic) and i don't know any of the tropes, so maybe this will look something like outsider art, hahaha. i'm not too sure. hopefully you guys will find it enjoyable anyway.
one thing i'll say about this fic is that it's rated, at least tentatively, R for some violence and swearing. i try not to be excessively graphic or vulgar, but the fic might delve into some darker themes as we go, or it might end up staying at a lighter tone, so we'll see where that rating sits in a couple chapters. another thing i'll say up front is that the first chapter is a prologue, and the main story thread will not follow those characters or adopt the same dark, violent tone (at least, not from the get-go). so if this introductory chapter isn't your thing i ask that you give it at least one more chapter as a chance, as i don't think the prologue is really indicative of the work as a whole.
anyway, that's enough jabbering on from me. i'm going to use this masterpost to keep track of the chapters and whatnot, so keep scrolling for the actual fanfic. i'm always open to reviews and would love to talk privately about the work if you'd rather have a dialogue about it; feel free to ping me on discord @qva#0046 if you wish. i hope you guys enjoy the fanfic!
