  1. The Doctor

    The Doctor Absolute Beginner

    ~Edited on 13th September, 16:50 pm~

    Name: The Doctor

    Age: Let's not get carried away!

    Strong Areas: Parts in a story really rich with description, like a battle, links to past chapters leading to the denouement and ways of setting up my plot (I'm not sure if that's the same as above). I've also developed a new flair for random comedy a la Breezy/Saber.

    Type Of Writing: Journeys, good vs. evils, secret organisations and some that are close to the original source. Even though I like to tweak it a bit.

(Banner by Saffire Persian)

    Irons In The Fire

    Ten years ago, Daniel Char Sr. dazzled audiences with his film debut, Pokemon Kanto. Now, however, his son shall take the rein. Shortly after gaining critical success with the remake of his father's debut, FireRed and LeafGreen, Danny Jr. is set to gain his first lead role in the upcoming Mystery Dungeon, along side his father's old friend Ethan J. Pikachu and his female co-star, Chelsea Torchic. What follows next, however, is a palava of events involving a flirty Smoochum, a goth Mr. Mime, a penny-pinching Meowth, a shoplifting Clefairy...and a washed-up Psyduck. But hey, whoever said making movies was easy?

    Kingdom Hearts Trinity

    A few months after the fall of the Organization XIII... Ryu Tajiri is a cadet for the Arcadia City Military and is taking his Advanced Cadet Studies. Shortly after the first session, however, his world is attacked by a race of dark creatures and his mentor Garu is wielding what looks like a large black key..."A Keyblade?"

    Writing Tips: Include a rough plan for your next chapter. Go through any ideas you have until you find the one that fits.
    Read the Advice for Aspiring Authors and the Fanfiction Rules threads. The majority of fan fictions are closed because the authors have failed to follow the guidelines set.
    Take criticism with grace. Start insulting your fellow forum-goers and you will face a ban as well as a closed thread.

    ~RaikouRider243~ Lightning Swordsman

    Name: ~RaikouRider243~, Raikou Rider, Josh

    Age: 18

    Strong Areas: Spelling and Grammar...my absolute best strong point. I will usually only have one or two spelling errors per chapter at the very most.
    Planning. I will have the ENTIRE story planned out before I start writing chapter 1, and I will deviate from the plan only rarely once the fic is underway.
    Battle Scenes. The transition from the RPGlike turn-based battle script to the actual fight in the fic is almost seamless. That is my secret to writing battle scenes. My battle description is where my best description is.
    Use of Music. To my knowledge, I was the first SPPF fanfic author to make the use of music in a fanfiction, and at least two other authors here (Billy5772 and FlamingRuby) have done the same thing. I always have an appropriate music track for a scene.

    Weak Areas: Pacing. Since I suck at writing scenes of comic relief, like classroom scenes, etc., my fics tend to be faster-paced than they should be.
    Character Development. Making round characters is something I have a lot of difficulty with simply because my filler scene writing sucks. Also, in the original version of The Johto Saga, my three main characters turned out to become quite Gary Stu. A certain reviewer said they still were a little bit so when I posted my latest version...
    Lack of Inspiration. Ever since I started writing my Pokémon Origins series, I haven't been able to move away from it. Every fic idea I have had (I've had one involving the legendary birds, one involving just one of the legendary Beasts, and a few others) have seemed to merely rehash the plot of my first series.
    Lack of Complexity. I have not been able to work in a significant side plot alongside the main plot of a fic, making it lack depth.

    Type Of Writing: Adventures are all I write.

    Type Of Characters: I like to write characters that are laid-back for the most part but can critically think when necessary.

    Current Stories: Pokémon Origins - Volume I: The Johto Saga
    Adventure
    Three college students of Ecruteak's premier university have their dreams of three legendary Pokémon of the Burned Tower come true, but at what cost? Rated PG for mild language. Rated 4.82 out of 11 votes.

    Pokémon Origins Volume II - Return of the Beasts
    Adventure
    The Ecruteak historical documents speak only of one side of the legend of the Beasts. Explore the other side of the legend with characters from The Johto Saga in addition to new, unforgettable faces. Rated PG for mild language and mild to moderate violence. Rated 5.00 out of 2 votes.

    Future Stories:

    Pokémon Origins Volume III (working title)
    Adventure
    Two years after awakening the trios of mystical Beasts, the balance of power among the legendary Pokémon is upset, and the battleground is the Sinnoh region. The Beast Riders are the world's only hope against the conflict among the noble Pokémon. Can they rid the world of the power-hungry, legend-hunting masterminds who seek to conquer the world?


    Writing Tips: Don't try to force the story--let the words come from your heart and the story should write itself. And if you get the highly annoying condition known as Writer's Block (actually when is a more accurate word), just put the fic away and do something completely unrelated.

    Once you get a good inspiration for a fic, write a detailed synopsis of EVERY chapter in the fic. Two to four paragraphs per chapter should suffice. If you cannot write that much for a chapter without going into great detail, either you need to think about the fic in deeper detail or completely scrap it. The key to finishing fics is to know almost exactly what will be going on in every chapter.

    Saffire Persian Now you see me...

    *Updated Dec. 10, 06*

    Name: Saffire Persian
    Age: 18

    Strong/Weak Areas: Personally, I believe my strong points are the characters - I love to delve into character relationships, simple or complex. My weak areas are probably proof-reading (I dunno, maybe I'm a bit impatient?) and battle scenes. No matter how much I like them, I never seem to be able to do it quite right.

    Type Of Writing: Fantasy/Adventure/Drama... all types, actually. My favorite, however, is by far Fantasy. Although my type of writing also ends up being very character oriented no matter what I do. POV-wise, I've generally kept to 3rd person, however, I still love first person, and oddly enough.. 2nd person, to me, is quite fascinating and really fun to do... So, yeah. And I'm now in an obsession with second.. because I really, really like it for some odd reason. *shruggs*

    Type Of Characters: No specific type for me! I love writing all kinds of characters with a variety of personalities.. I suppose you could say I like to stray into the darker sort, but meh, I like them all.

    Writing Tips: I dunno if I can give anything of value, but when it comes down to it, some of the simplest things I can give are, for one thing, use a spellchecker! If you don't have MS word, download Open Office for free. Also, don't make your characters flat and boring, make them dynamic - don't make them over the top, but make them interesting enough other people can connect to them. Also, have fun when you're writing your stories! Write what you want to write, don't write what others want you to. If you don't have fun writing your stories, you won't go anywhere with them.

  5. Demise

    Demise ...An orange blob...

    Name: DS, Demise, Demise-sama, Massacre Author, Block Writer, or Weirdo

    Age: Just to let you know, I'm eleven.

    Strong Areas:writing humor, I can never ever stray off the path of writing humor. Probably a suspense moment might be included in my fics, but rarely. Writing humor may be one thing, but I also have a strong like to evil things.

    Weak areas: Unable to write what I want because it's unlike me, things like; sadness, romance, and good quality mystery. Maybe a bit of it. ;.; Loss of inspration, no reason to write the fics anymore.

    I used to be junk at vocabulary, but I have discovered the theasarus! I might start writing new words and the definition whenever I read a book. And now I have discovered...THEASARUS. COM!!! It's really helpful...^_^ yup.

    Type of Writing: You guessed it...HUMOR! Also sarcasm. My path will always be humor, don't know, don't care.

    Sometimes my description doesn't make sense...Of course I like writing evil things, so don't sue me if I kill someone in the fic, it goes as I plan. I might even kill my favorite character. But who knows...*BUM BUM BUM*...they might be raised from the dead. o_O

    Though, chapters of my stories...usually come out after one day, I always have the story in my head...in blocks...I already know how to end sad ones. ^_^

    Type of Character: Naughty, sarcastic, sane, dense, smart, dopey, stupid, evil, nice, the list keeps going.

    Mostly, I like shaping evil characters, that's fun. Smug people might be my favorite. Giddy because I'm modeling them after a certain annoying friend IRL. Of course my favorite one is naughty charcters, I could finally shine my evil self onto paper. ^_^

    Though, sometimes I sorta like to model them after myself, because I'm emo! -_____- Or not...

    I have many mysteries, and I like mysterious characters. So, what I hate writing is thier descriptions and names. So, the character wouldn't be too much of anything in the genre except mysterious. Thus, making it more easier for me to note flex out thier personalities, but, for me, it's hard to keep the person a mysterious character. You know me, I explode with secrets that I'm dying to share, and I will.




    Current Stories: None yet, I'm still working on ALL of them. I don't think it is worthy of being posted.

    WAIT!!!

    Eleven Years

    Summary: A boy embarks on a aimless journey, undecided where he'll go. He wanders into many lands, and faces many foes. He used to be an imcompetant ninja in his dojo. He finally noticed his purpose, within a girl that he is equaled with. A breakout of a demon woman, Haya, whom he trapped with the help of the other ninjas, caused him to leave.
    He searches for Haya, wanting to kill her, for a reason unknown, but he has a strong will to become stronger.

    Not much...Okay so there are, but it's at a low go...here are the list of fics that might fortunately make it onto Serebii forums:


    Troublesome Trio
    Humor PG 10+
    A Journey of three troublemakers who went through a lot before becoming important people. <Note> I overwrited it with a commercial. T^T I'll have to start from the middle.<Note> (Ha, it's going into the trash heap.)

    Through Crimson Eyes
    Humor/Suspense PG 10+
    It's glum to travel with a rival. Journey of a Champion, who has to become a new person. (Out the window, *get outta here!*)

    Through Azure Eyes
    Humor/suspense PG 12+
    An eevee looking for a cure out of pokemon form. Formally Champion of Hoenn, now pokemon. Against her wishes, she gets captured, would this new life corrupt her search for a cure? (Might be buried under my minds.)

    Arise of a Dark Lugia
    Humor/Suspense PG 12+
    A very peculiar journey, with a task hard to keep, and unbelievable teams. (I might pick it up after a year...maybe...)

    WBS: Writer's Block Show
    Humor PG 10+
    Uh...Just a random story used to beat out my hyperness. If you are a fan of certain pokemon or gymleaders, I advise you to not read it when it comes out. Otherwise you may read it for your own amusement. I would post some of the contents to warn you before the episode. (I have writer's block for a Writer's Block Show. Ain't that exciting. And YES, people, I know 'ain't' isn't a word.)​

    Future Stories: The things that I have listed up there. ^^ AND:

    [​IMG]

    Tainted Cherry Blossom
    PG 13: Serious/ a bit of Drama/ a very teenie wince of humor/ Gore (Yes, heed my warning about PG 13. Guys, it sounded reasonable...for something like that...*mutters: it can't be just PG 11..*

    It was a regular day at the Hidden Leaf Village. *sees people running away* T^T Guys it isn't anything about the story on the plot! It's sort of another dimension, and it doesn't have anything to do with the main Naruto plot. And don't worry, it won't be crappy.

    Summary:
    A major massacre had happened in Hidden Leaf village. Certain ninjas from squads have been murdered one-by-one. Though, authorities don't know who did it. Readers would know. (It's open murder...so what? :D) After the village have obtained peace and something called the golden time, an unlikely person...betrayed those who knew the person as a friend. It wasn't the assasin's fault, it was the other side that thirsts for power and free will. The part that was holding him/her back from killing and wreaking havoc, as been over powered.

    (I better shut up, before I spill any more beans. :D)
    Coming soon. Late 2006...Or maybe earlier. It's undecided....


    Tips: Sometimes people who give harsh crits can be judge to be a flamer. Well, not all people out there is nice, they give harsh crits to help you improve, if you take it the wrong way, then you will not be able to continue writing. Take harsh crits the positive way and you'll be able to overcome harsh insults and such. And keep writing.

    If you are persistent, please improve your writing before posting another story. Who knows? Maybe that story might be better than the last one. And people would see major improvement.

    AND remember...uh...the tips...yeah.

  6. Literate

    Literate black cat, black cat

    Name: Literate

    Age: 13

    Gender: Girl (Although, my actions and thoughts are of male. I think.)

    Strong Points: Plots, ideas, characters. But mostly plots and characters. And grammar....And dialogue. For some reason I can always make the characters realistic. o_O

    Ideas: I can get them after seeing/reading anything. I try not to get them sometimes, but I just do. I dump most ideas I get, though.

    Plots: After one or two days after the idea. Or after I find that I need to put some more action into these things. I can change it during the actual writing too.

    Characters: I can make any kind, anytime. They're just so easy to do. Most are self-inserts and since my personality ranges from cold-hard depression to overly enthusiastic to mysteriously silent, I can make any character.

    Weakness: Lack of attention. I never seem to finish long stories. Maybe I'll write a one-shot. And spelling, though I usually catch myself on that. Description, lack of attention, I just get a bit bored doing this, I'd rather a psychlogical stories with no background no nothing. Length.... I never can make it long. The only near-completed story I wrote was only five chapters.

    Type of Writing: Serious-kind humor. Serious and solemn and things. I can easily come up with agnst-type stories. At least that's what my friend says. Mystery, mystery, mystery is my recent obsession. ;p

    Type of Character: Pretty smart like me. Sane, at least. Then the varities just go on and on....

No one can, can they?
    Note: Started it.

    Chaptered fics tend to take longer to come out. ^_^'

    Tips: If you first want to post a fanfic, check the basics. See if the grammar is near understanding, and check the spelling of each word. So you'll have a decent fanfiction when people look at it. Okay?

    ~PEACE~

    Ash_Junior Irredeemable Nerd

    so I'm doing a repost--so sue me! the old one is deleted, and this has most of the same content (with a LOT of added content). :p

    My Pokefiction resume

    Name: Ash_Junior

    Age: 18, STILL never been kissed, and VERY proud of it!

    Strong Areas: I'm pretty good at writing long fics. I'm mediocrely strong in the areas of plot, and people have told me that I have good characters. I feel that I can draw people into my fics more than most, simply because of the amount of countries and their original cultures, sheer numbers of Pokemon I have made, and enormous backstory for all of it. Another of my strong areas is my ability to churn out work (when I'm in the mood). Recently I made a fic that was nine pages long in Open office (available for download at openoffice.org) in, are you ready for this, an hour and a half. that's probably about my average speed of writing, but I have a lot of RL distractions, so I don't write as much as I could.

    However, I definitely consider my strongest area the fact that I can write faster than most people can read. I write a lot and I write often.

    Weak Areas: If I had to pick one major weakness in my writing, it's that I generally can't stick to what I planned for the fic. Just ask Elemental Charizam about the Hell Hath no Fury plans that I sent him. Partway through, I switched tacks completely.

    Type Of Writing: Oddly, even though I generally dislike romance in my own personal life, I've found myself drawn to it when I write more often than not. I consider myself a pretty good romance author, as well as a good action/adventure author, with, of course, a little bit of subtle humor as well. But I don't limit myself to any one particular type. I can do anything, I'm sure, I just choose not to do certain stuff.

    Type Of Characters: that's easy. The gung-ho take-no-prisoners, we-will destroy you girls; relatively silent, yet admirable male heroes; antagonists; and Ash and Misty. For the most part....I've made some memorable stupid characters (ask Saffire Persian about my original Retribution. Just....try not to look puzzled when she jumps up and down and yells about sticks and stones).

    Complete Stories:

    Romance

    What If...

    On an otherwise uneventful night, Ash becomes poisoned by Beedrill. Things that have been hidden are brought to light, feelings are brought forward, all while everyone is desperately trying to save his life. Will they succeed?

    Read What If...and find out.


    ”Some Things Never Change"

    A rather odd AAMRN (Ash And Misty Romance Novel, for those who don't know. It's not a novel, but that's what I always call AAMR) that was written towards the beginning of my Pokefiction career. It's still somewhat good, if a bit Dependant on capital letters (I was terrible back then, remember). If you're looking for a few cheap laughs, take a look.

    A Pokemon Christmas

    It's been several years since Ash Ketchum retired from training Pokemon and took a professorship at Pokemon Tch. Now there's only one more thing that he needs to make his life complete....A sweet AAMRN centered around Christmas, this is definitely better than Some Things Never Change

    The Choice

    My original May/Misty jealousy parody, I was reading a lot about how people were annoyed with the cliched May/Misty finding out Ash was seeing the other, and swore to break them up/make Ash like her/get rid of the other, and eating the brains of anyone who got in their path (okay, so I made that last part up). This was my solution, and eventually led into The Battle of the “M”s

    The Battle of the “M”s.

    A parody of the many May and Misty jealousy fan-fics, this is just the first chapter. I've got the rest lying around somewhere, but none are as good as this one. I suppose it could work as a one-shot, but it was meant to be done as a chaptered fic.

    Fishing Opener

    Ash and Misty are participating in the Blackthorne City Fishing Contest on the Lake of Rage, when they come in for the day. A storm during the night forces them to remain in Misty's personal Johto retreat. What in the world do they have to talk about?


    Action/Adventure


    All's Well that Ends Well:

    A trainer comes to Oak's lab to recieve the starter Pokemon that has been dreamed of for years. However, there has been a break-in, and the Pokemon have all been stolen! Will our intrepid hero apprehend the bandit? And, more importantly, will the hero ever get his starter?

    An askance look at what has become a badly cliched beginning for journey fics...the theft of a Pokemon, a la GSC.

    WARNING: this fic contains extremely good plot twists and is written in the 2nd Person.


    PorygonX

    What would happen if a Porygon were to regain consciousness without being controlled in laboratory conditions? What conclusions would it reach? This chilling one-shot provides one clue to these questions.


    Engaran Wars Trilogy and Related Fiction


    Blaine: The Search for Moltres

    Blaine has been searching for the legendary Moltres his entire life, and now he thinks he knows where to look. Will he find what he was looking for, or has he spent his fortune in vain?

    One-shot that I was inspired to write while I was writing the Battle of Cinnabar Island in Operation: Celebi.

    Prologue to the Engaran Wars Trilogy; Hell Hath no Fury: An Ice Queen's Saga
    [​IMG]

    Six years before a young man named Ash Ketchum wakes up late on a very fateful day, future Indigo League Elite Lorelei Belle Winters runs away from home to begin her journey...only to be swept up into a conflict far greater than anything she had ever imagined possible. In the icy wastelands of Nuschantz, among a deadly civil war, she has a mission to complete, and won't let anything stand in her way.

    Spin-offs of HHNF (Hell Hath no Fury: An Ice Queen's Saga

    Bugsy: The Johto Reconquista

    Currently hosted on my geocities site (but not connected to the library), Bugsy: The Johto Reconquista tells of what happens when Bugsy leaves HHNF mid-fic and returns to Johto to fight against all the different teams that had taken it over.

    Someday, probably after Time of The Titans (see below), I may come back to this. Once I get a working title page and stuff up for it, I'll post a link to it.

    Johto: A New Beginning
    [​IMG]

    Sarah Gilchrist, a former Loyalist Blizzard, is recruited by Gym Leader Steven of Blackthorne City to be one of his Gym Trainers. Two years later, however, after a short trip to Azalea Town with Lorelei Bell Winters, Sarah is inspired to embark on the Johto League challenge. Every one of her five foot six inches an anti-hero, Sarah often makes choices radically different than one would expect from an average Johto trainer. When Team Rocket steals one of her Pokemon, this is self-evident. Has Team Rocket met its match in this woman and her crusade to bring it down?

    Like the Bugsy fic, this is also on hiatus. I definitely want to get back to this one, but I've got to continue with my momentum and finish work on the Engaran Trilogy before coming back to this. By the way, this is the only trainer fic of mine that has survived (I accidentally deleted my other one, which had a talking Meowth, a pair of Rockets, and a Pichu kicking their collective derrières. Be glad that it is no more).

    Book 1 of the Engaran Wars Trilogy; Operation: Celebi
    [​IMG]
    (Links to the chapters won't be there until ~3 PM 2/3/06

    use this one until then:

    [​IMG]

    eight years after the events in Hell Hath no Fury: An Ice Queen's Saga, Lorelei Belle Winters is back, this time as part of the Kanto Elite Four, along with Karen, Bruno, Agatha, and the Champion, Lance. Giovanni is captured during a crack-down on Team Rocket in both Kanto and Johto. That capture sets in motion a series of events that is impossible to stop. Before long, the unbelievable has happened--Kanto has been invaded.



    Current Stories: Book 2 of the Engaran Wars Trilogy; Retribution
    [​IMG]

    Kanto is in ruins, a shadow of its former self. Engara has total control of the country, and has handed the reins over to what is left of Team Rocket. But there are some that still resist, in the face of overwhelming opposition and death if they are caught. They are the brave men and women of Rocket-Bane. And they will not rest until Kanto is once again free.

    Retribution was another of my earliest pieces that survived an accidental mass delete. Basically, I started the story with the idea of an underground bunker and a bunch of Kanto starters defending it. Throw in some safari zone stuff (ask Saffire about the sticks and stones), and you've got a crappy start to a crappy fic. As I went on, I explained to myself that TR had control of the surface, and the people of Rocket-Bane wanted to free Kanto. This link is to the old version, and is more of a teaser to the upcoming version than anything else. It gives a basic lay-out of Rocket-Bane and its inhabitants and their customs. Don't worry—the real thing will be WAY better.

    Future Stories:

    Engaran Wars Trilogy Book 3; Time of the Titans

    I don't want to give much away, but here's a teaser trailer for you all...

    This is the fic that I'm working up towards. The ultimate battle. absolutely powerful Pokemon pitted against each other, with mankind, caught in the middle, taking sides as well. It will be like a version of World War III, about thirty years from now. With Pokemon. And Legendaries. And super-powerful Pokemon even more powerful than that (the afore-mentioned Titans. And no, they aren't captured. They don't even come to our dimension that often. Only in times of great emergency).


    Possibly a RL (Timeline?)/Pokemon CO, replete with standard sci-fi alternate reality stuff...featuring Seymour the Scientist (ya remember the MT. Moon guy?) as a prominent character.

    Maybe a fic with the Samurai that Ash met in Viridian Forest way back when he first started. About how he catches up with Ash, and battles him again...

    Maybe a sequel to What If...as I have had several demands to do so. At one point I was going to, but then I got interest back in finishing HHNF/O:C

    *grins*

    have I piqued your interest?

    I hope so.

    As you can see, I have a lot of experience writing. All in all, I've probably written around three hundred pages MS Word. I'm proud of that achievement. And that's all in the last four or five years (not sure on the exact date I started writing). Some people are lucky to get to fifty pages MS word. For me, that's only five chapters.

    I'm in the process (have been for over a year) of getting a personal website up and running. If you're interested in taking a look around, click on the banner below:

    Writing Tips:

    1. Listen to people with more experience than you do.

    2. ignore flames that say to give up. writing is a skill. The more you practice, the better you'll be.

    3. try creating a Pokemon or two. If you're having trouble starting, try blending two established Pokemon into your own, or try *shudders* an Eeveelution. Whatever you make, put it into your fic, and make it better because of it.

    3b.for an example of a Pokemon I made when I was starting out, I have a Poke named Vulithe. nope, not an Eevee. it's a Vulpix/Growlithe cross, made when Ninetails breed with Arcanine. The evolved form of Vulithe (who evolves with a Fire Stone) is Arnine. I was gonna do Nine something, but since both Pokes have "nine" in their names, I couldn't really do it.

    Disclaimer: I have only done the Johto: A New Beginning Banner. The other banners were done by Scrap (HHNF), Saffire Persian (Retribution), and Tezza/Topaz of WoC fame (Operation: Celebi/Ash_Junior Laboratories).

    Zathire Overly Rugged

    Name: Look above
    Age: 18
    Strong Areas:
    Well I don't want to decide for myself so based on other's views, I nail description and paint pictures clearly. Sometimes I've been critisized for painting them so clearly it leaves nothing for the imagination.

    Which brings me to my weak areas. I don't draw the line right. I either go overboard or not far enough with pretty much everything in my life.

    One of the hardest problems right now is character developement vs plot speed. You know how those intros to books develope characters but take away from from how fast the story progresses. In my blessed-creativity-inducing-ADD-opinion, I'm all for speed, "let's define them in the action scenes",(that my veiw) but one of my friends thinks I need more growing up time in my story. ...but then again he reads BATTLE history books that are so big&boring I'd have a stroke looking at them, that's why I'm posting it here for some other opinion.

    Type Of Writing: My writing is always loved fanticy or science fiction. Personally I like to make the unreal have a dull sence of realism to it.

    Type Of Characters: Anyone with a particular stuborness or lack of something that makes them odd. Usually I like to make hard core people that laugh arrogantly in the face of death, or overly determined characters.

    Current Stories: The Fall of Nawkamea
    An intense sequel of events shrouded in mystery. Something is about to errupt from an acient phrophecy and its up to a very odd conjuntion of characters to find out not only that they're in threat but to figure out what they must do or what they are actually up against. The plot doesn't show it's true shape for a long time nor do some of the best characters show up until its almost a third of the way over.

    It is immensly violent and hardcore in some of the later chapters. I'm suprised no one decided to tell me anything about it. I really need reviews from a larger audiance. What's wrong? What's right?

    Also as a almost joke, I put up Adjel the Ruthless.
    I don't expect much to come from this but I decided there must be alot of uncreative people out there so I did a pokemon one portraying the view of a villain.

    Future Stories: I might put up a story about space fleets and a certain universal connection that's descovered between them and a twist of aliances.

    Remember that you don't forget to include all the senses.
    There's more than sound and light in this world.

    And last of all and by far most important...
    When it comes to making a story your story, that means there should be something that is overall different and completely orginal about it, giving it meaning.

    Redoing my profile, since my last attempt was like, futile (whatever that means :D)

    Over the year, I have developed new skills, strengths, weaknesses, as well as better attitude. :)

    Username: Ratiasu, although I'm considering a change.

    Name: Cynthia. Isn't that nice? ;)

    Age: 11, turning 12 on May 17th

    Strengths: Illustrating emotions, grammar and spelling, vocabulary

    Weaknesses: I tend to confuse my readers, and there's the occasional attack of the typo, and I catch WB too easily. I get it every month. Just deadly.

    I'm writing You're Not Alone, filled with action and adventure and all that, and I recently started Sayuri, an original trainer fic that has more to it than just collecting badges. ;)

    My characters vary. I guess that's it.

    Advice: Always use the criticism you get. You will improve greatly. I have learned this through experience.

    I started out like this:

    Ash walked up the hill. The wind stirred his black hair. A yellow mouse perched on his shoulder. They were starting a new journey.

    Now I'm like this:

    A teenage boy, perhaps around fourteen years of age, treked up a slope and reached the peak. The wind swirled around him, marking his triumphant steps. A yellow mouse stared into the horizon with his human friend. A journey, a quest of some sort was waiting up ahead.

    Chareon -blinkblink-

    Name: Chareon...

    Age: 16 in four months!!!

    Strong Areas: Well, if I have to brag about myself, I'd say my plot and my vocabulary. For a while, the only salvation to my horrible writing was my storyline. Now, I have discovered the thesaurus!

    Type Of Writing: Fantasy stories, all the way. It's the only thing I've ever typed and probably ever will. My father is a writer for a living, and I have learned much from him. When I write, my chapters are short and sweet, but I must remind myself not to rush the information out. I'm getting better though...

    Type Of Characters: I absolutely love writeing klutsy, sweet and smart but immature. I also enjoy writing the exact opposite for contrast.

    Current Stories: Currently, I'm working on a Pokemon fan fic titled The Price of Freedom, which is now on revision 2.
    I'm not going to do much of a reveiw, seeing as that I would give away too much, but here's a bit... New trainer Miyah discovers she has a much higher calling than she ever imagined as her suspicious new powers take her and her Pokemon on a journey to separate right from wrong.
    At the moment, my rating is at four star.

    I also have written a short story trilogy, which is known as the Charidian Trilogy. Only the first third is posted, Change of Fate, and it could really use some reviews. The next two parts will be posted as soon as Change of Fate gets more readers.

    Future Stories: A Pokemon fanfic titled Sagacia... I've started on it already, I'm just waiting to post it.

    Writing Tips: Don't ever take criticism the wrong way. That's the worst thing you could do. I know from firsthand experience that your pride at your new story can be smashed into anger quite quickly. Be patient, and explain yourself if your readers are wrong. If they aren't, then listen to their advice! They have the editing advantage of not knowing what's going to happen.

    -that's all!

    Clockworkz SURPRISE BUTTSECKS

    Name: Clockworkz

    Age: 18

    Strong Areas: Descriptions, plots, vocabulary, imagry, grammar and spelling
    Type Of Writing: Fiction, normally in Naturalism, while expressing existentialism.

    Type Of Characters: I like to describe characters that share things in common with me. I can identify with them better, and I feel more into it when I do that.

    Current Stories: Team Rocket: The Unremitting Strife, still in progress.

    Current rating: PG-13 (may become R later on...). Current Star Vote: 4 stars. Action/adventure.

    Future Stories: Still in its conceptual stages: Team Rocket: Scientific Exploits (working title). To be done in a journal-esqe style. This will outline the backgrounds of the Mewtwo and Armageddon Projects, as outlined in the Pokemorph MUSH's timeline. Permission pending. The story will be written if I am allowed to write it.

    Writing Tips: Read a lot of books. Make sure you read some of the great authors, like Camus, or Faulkner. Extend your vocabulary that way, and delve into a greater understanding of the English language by using professional examples. Try to use a thesaurus as little as possible. It can make your work sound less genuine, especially if you tend to air the side of simplicity.

    StellarWind The Sylvan Saber

    Hmm. Might as well post somethin' here.

    Name: StellarWind Elsydeon (Just Stel would do. ^^)

    Age: Eternal. Stuck on this particular planet for 20 years.

    Strong Areas: Worldbuilding. ^^ I absolutely love taking worlds and giving them my own twists. I also have a major fondness for description (very helpful for aformentioned worldbuilding, let me tell you) and I consider battles and to some degree action scenes to be my forte' otherwise.

    Weak Areas: FILLER. I can have major plot points set up but the filler between them can get me stuck for bloody decades. ^^;

    Type Of Writing: Well, I usually write strange Fantasy/Sci-Fi hybrids - usually serious, but more often than not with their moments of comedy. I also like writing one-shots from the perspective of characters that have little background to them, trying to give them some kind of a back story where the games or series didn't (this includes some PokeMon POV fics.) I do quite a bit of original writing, too, but I'm yet to actually post any of it here, so... Eh. ^^;

    Type Of Characters: I have a fondness for characters with more than a dash of mystery about them, scholarly, intelligent characters, or just about anything that comes to my mind, really. I don't really limit myself to specific kinds of characters. They just burst in my mind and kinda write themselves. ^^;

    Current Stories:

    Resonance

    My current ‘ongoing’ work – A trainer fic set in Hoenn. Or at least, that's what it wants you to think...

    Finished Stories and One-Shots:

    Blades

    The story of a Scyther that has come full circle, told from her point of view – based on a Scizor belonging to an RP character of mine. NOT for the faint of heart or the canon-obsessed.

    When Life Is Just Re-VOLT-ing

    Ever wondered why do Voltorbs blow themselves up of their own free will? Exactly.

    Hades (Non-PokeMon, Digimon Tamers)

    What happens to Digimon that die but their data doesn’t get absorbed? Renamon finds the answer… Set before the events of Digimon Tamers.

    Sealed in Ice (Non-PokeMon, Final Fantasy VI)

    Tritoch, the frozen Esper, reflects on the world and the passage of time.

    Writing Tips: What can I say here that hasn’t been said before? Just keep your fics readable, don't jump between tenses like a crazed Spoink, mind your punctuation, grammar and spelling and always remember. When the clock strikes seventeen, remember the magical feathered walrus! ^^

    [Cano] Sig [Cloud] Mugen

    Name: SigCMugen
    Age: 17
    Strong Areas: Description, plot and character development. I find these areas the easiest to right about because I think of it as just writing down my exact thoughts, and that's what makes it easier for me. I also find it fun to describe vivid scenery using similies and metaphors. Oh, and I LOVE contradictions, or oxymorons. Things like:
    His appearance symbolized the beginning of life anew, his long flowing brown hair gently cascading along his back, his white trench coat trailing inches above the dirt and gravel road beneath him. His wingspan reached several yards, tip to tip, his black ominous feathers neatly aligned one atop the other, the pattern representing the pureness and order of the Stairway to Heaven. The Angel of Life, the Dove of Resurrection...Lucifer.​
    These kinds of descriptions are my favorite to write, because to me it seems easier to visualize within my own mind. It sets the boundaries of the character's appearance without having to say, 'It's kinda like this, but not too much like this.'
    Type Of Writing: I love to write Fantasies and Sci-Fi. However, I still try to retain a sense of believablity in the plot and overall story. So I'll never be the one to write a story about zombies created through alien abduction (weird example, I know). That's just not me. I like to read stories that seem plausible, even possible to happen, and that's visible in my writing style and preferences.
    Type Of Characters: Emotionally hardened characters, characters who blame themselves for the most out-of-your-hands reasons...I like to write and develop these kinds of characters, because I feel that if I were created into a character, that that's the type I would be.
    Current Stories:
    Invisible Silhouette
    Welcome to Fuego, a land of strength and ferocity, a land of honor and determination...a land in fear. Welcome to a land veiled in darkness, a land afraid of its own shadow...
    Welcome to a land ripe with natural talent, a land with new faces and breeds of pokemon.
    In this land, a new evil calls all the shots. An evil that is forever present, yet never visible. An evil that's unique, yet generic.
    Welcome to Fuego.​

    [OPTIONAL]Future Stories:
    Fullmetal Alchemist: Equivalency
    Set in the world of the popular anime series Fullmetal Alchemist, this tale begins with a recap of the incident within Laboratory Five. The truth of the Philosopher's Stone has been revealed; now the Elrics have been backed into a corner, from which there is no right way out. On one hand, they can abandon their quest for the Stone's power, and accept the bodies that they created for themselves. But on the another, they abandon their very beliefs as alchemists to forge themselves a tool with which they hope to regain everything.
    Feeling lost and unsure, Edward Elric leaves behind his younger brother Al to conduct some dangerous research...but what returns isn't the 'Fullmetal Alchemist'...​

    Writing Tips: Obtain as much criticism as you can, and add it to your own. Remember though: no amount of constructive criticism in the world outweighs your own thoughts and feelings. Take what other people say, and run with it, but make sure that at the end of the night, your result is something that you're willing to back with all of your soul. Even the slightest doubt within yourself can damage everything you've worked for, as well as your hopes of gaining anything in the future. And never compare yourself to anyone but you, because otherwise you'll get nowhere fast. One thing that you need to realize, is that there will always be someone out there who is better than you, period. So it's a fools errand to try and best any and everyone with whom you cross paths. In the end, you should only compete with yourself.
    Interesting Fact About Me: I love fence hopping! And just jumping in general. I also love using my feet; so I love things like 'dribbling' a soccer ball, or playing hackey sack. Without my legs and feet, I'd die...

  16. Kamex

    Kamex Team Rocket's rockin

    Time to update mine:

    Name: Kamex (previously Blue Pokemon Master)
    Age: 17 (18 in a few months)
    Strong Areas: I've got creative ideas.
    Type Of Writing: Action, adventure... that type of thing at the moment. I also tend to put a little romance in my fics, without enough to make it a major genre, but then who doesn't? Lol.
    Type Of Characters: I like to write about heroic characters. I also like to write about characters that do bad things because of a harsh past, such as a horrific incident that happened when they were young. But in general, I like to write about as many different kinds of people as I can.
    Current Stories: I've had Pokemon War, but my current fic is Doppelganger. It's about a boy who didn't find himself worthy of going on a Pokemon journey, but when he finally does, not only does he make many friends, but the journey itself is more epic than any normal one. Why? Because he ends up learning to be psychic throughout the journey so that he can hold his own as the hero in an ancient civilization's conflict. Makes for an interesting story, eh?
    Future Stories: Well, I've got many ideas, but until I choose one I'd better refrain from explaining any...
    Writing Tips: I don't remember if I said this last time, but don't write when you're too bored too. It'll only make you write boring material in your boringness (if that's a word). Either get yourself more inspired, or wait for another time to continue your fic.
     
  17. Mysteria Pearl

    Mysteria Pearl Queen of Mushy-ness!

    Mysteria, huh? That's pretty cool, cuz my name is Mysteria Pearl (not in real life)and I love AshxMisty, now I wanna read it :D
     
  18. Infinite Master Sceptile

    Infinite Master Sceptile Bow to Groucho

    Name: Infinite Master Sceptile, A.K.A. IMS
    Age:16
    Strong Areas: I love creating intricate plots. My weakness is my incredible laziness.
    Type Of Writing: I have ambitious plans but nothing to show for it so far. I aim to write an epic trilogy about a war.
    Type Of Characters: I like to write about outsiders, people on the fringes of society, reluctant heroes, and heroes that become villains.
    Future Stories:
    The Auranian War
    For years Kanto has been at war with their ideological opponent, Aurania. All efforts have converged upon the Sevii Islands. Kanto has systematically driven the Auranians out of nearly every Island. The Auranian army is now holed up in Sevault Canyon, awaiting the Kanto attack. Participating in this siege is a private by the name of Mike Surge. With his Elekid and Pikachu, he marches into battle, totally unaware of the reverberations this will have upon history.
    Clouded Jewel
    It is October 31st, 1997. Emilio Harmon's birthday. And the beginning of his journey. And he has just been to the morgue to identify the body of his alcoholic father. Not an auspicious beginning for a kid from the slums of Saffron. Also very unlucky is the fact that his starting Pokemon is a Purple Jeweled Staryu (with a penchant for waffles).
    At the same time, three kids in Pallet are awaiting impatiently their birthday, where they will claim their birthright.
    There is a man named John Terrance, hiding in the mountains, plotting a 'hostile takeover' of massive proportions. He will stop at nothing for vengeance.
    In the corridors of power, business continues as usual.
    One person sits at a chessboard, waiting for someone to make the first move.
    Three children of privilege in the rich community of Pallet wait impatiently to begin their journey.
    Death will be the least of Emilio's troubles.
    You thought you knew Pokemon?
    Think again.
    Writing Tips: Be persistent. Procrastination kills fics. Don't be lazy like me.

  19. Praxiteles

    Praxiteles Friendly POKéMON.

    Name: Dragonfire, soon to be .:pyroken Serafoculus:.

    Age: 11, but don't think I don't have as much experience - or skill - as some of the older authors. You'll regret your judgement. I'll make sure of it XD

    Strong Areas: Getting the plot onto the Word document. Period. I have a sixth sense that goes off when anyone - including myself - writes sentences in an indecent manner. Even if the smallest phrase is misused, I sense it just as distinctly as I would sense a blow to the head.

    Weak Areas: Description. I know all the tips experienced authors give to less experienced ones, but I don't have the instinct for description that I have for other areas. I can learn how to have plot twists and other things that point out a good fic, but description is one of those things that I have to have a seventh sense for in order to use well, and I don't have that seventh sense. I just don't have it.

    Type Of Writing: I prefer Adventure fics over anything else. Maybe it's because I myself am adventurous, or maybe it's just that feeling we all get when we read about someone going on an adventure. I'm not sure why I like it.

    Type Of Characters: I like characters that are dark and efficient, yet have quite a temper; who use brain over brawn and often dislike some other character, therefore putting a bit of dry humour into the fic. They don't show any of their emotions (save for anger) to all but their closest friends, and so are often regarded (incorrectly) as heartless and emotionless. Sort of like me, actually.

    Current Stories: The Upholder of Duty, which is, of course, an Adventure fic. You can find the summary in my signature. I'm feeling lazy today.

    Writing Tips: Kids, remember two things that I specialize in:

    1. If you're going to try and make something good, read, and read professional, completely error-less stuff. It's the only way you'll get the sixth sense that I have. I've been spending my entire life reading whenever I have had free time, and that's how I've got a feel for what sounds right and appropriate for the mood you're trying to develop. This way, I learnt perfect grammar before I even had an English class about it. I found out when and when not to put articles even before I knew what 'the' and 'a' were pronounced as!

    2. A way to proofread that makes the job a bit less intimidating is to write one sentence, proofread that, write another sentence, proofread again, and so on. It definitely seems to the mind as a way that requires the least work, even though you have to proofread the same amont of sentences. Also, after you finish a paragraph, reread it to see if it flows right. If you're using the method I said earlier, there's a good chance that your sentences are short and snappy. The only time the method I said does not apply is if you're inspired, and you're on a roll. You wouldn't like to break up your inspiration, now, would you?

    3. Here's something that I figured out when I read The Pokemon Rebellion. We all hate short and snappy sentences, don't we? But they can actually be used as a useful tool. When you want to create a mood of a type of dreaminess, as if it's like a dream, use long, flowing sentences, and when you want it dramatic or scary, suspenseful, use small and snappy sentences. It really puts the reader into the mood you want.

    I'd write more, but I'm lazy, and my hands are getting sore, so that would be all.
     
  20. Bay

    Bay YEAHHHHHHH

    ***The Tales of the Mistress of Water: My fanfiction works***​


    ~UPDATED September Eight~ (Will update from time to time, so look at the date!)
    Latest Update: Finished posting "Take Fifty Five!" and right now am working "Mori" and "Nothing, Everything". "Mori" will come in September (I hope) while "Nothing, Everything" won't come out for a little while (January 2007 at the latest ).

    Name: Bay

    Age: 17


    Gender: Female

    Plot: My stories are not really the most plot driven. Usually when dealing with plot, I would make the scenes more essential to the theme of my story.

    Types of Writing: I liked to write parable stories, poetry, history, War, and Fantasy.

    Types of Characters: I usually go for characters that are just human, whether it be a real human or Pokemon. My characters would make you think they are perfect, but they have their own flaws.

    Strongest Point: I can organize my stories really well. Also, I can write good descriptions and how to write what is going on a character’s mind.

    Weakest Point: My grammar is not my strongest point. A few times I might make grammar mistakes. Also, I tend to change the original scenes and put in a different scene if I felt that scene is not good. Sometimes I cannot makeup my mind which scene is better fitted with the story. (Happen liked that with one of the novels I was writing and that led me being unhappy with that project and stopped it all together).

    I have some good amount of writing experience(mostly stories and poetry not Pokemon realted), but I kind of stop writing to learn how to write better stories dealing with plot, grammar, character developement, etc. and better poetry on writing themes better. For now I am writing from scratch but as time passes I will get better and better each step in the way.

    CURRENT WORKS:

    Tips on writing: There will be times when you believed this scene does not seem to fit the storyline. Try a couple different versions of that scene you do not like and see if you really want to change the storyline a little bit, but no not do it too much or else you will be making a whole new storyline you might not like. Also, if you seem to have writers block, it is good to take a break for a few days and then looked at the story again. Lastly, when writing description, try to make it flow and not like a big grocery list.
