    TEEN: Attack of The 50-Foot Brent (Oneshot)
    Threadmarks: Author's Notes & Story

    Hello everyone! I'm back again with another PMD-esque story, this time a spinoff to the second multiparter PMD fic I've done, Dragony. Knowledge of Dragony is not necessary for reading this story, however, as this only shares the setting and stars some minor characters from it. This also doesn't...

    Writers' Workshop General Chat Thread

    for me it differs between fics, but inside fics i try to keep it consistent. for example i think seiren had 3000-4000 words per chapter and i did want to split one that went over 8000 but couldn't because of pacing. it was also the finale so i figured it was justifiable. i did consider anything...

    POPULAR: Simple Questions, Simple Answers

    "It swam in a straight line"? I don't think I understand the question. Are you wondering about its swimming style, as in whether it should paddle with its paws or swing its tail from side to side like a fish or crocodile would? In either case, I don't see how it couldn't move straight ahead like...

    Threadmarks: Epilogue

    Okay, now we are finally done for really reals - here is the epilogue. Same ratings as always. Hope you enjoy. --- EPILOGUE --- It's been about a week since my freakout. I haven't spoken to Him since. Fonz I've only had brief conversations with, and few have mentioned Him. How is He doing...

    TEEN: Seiren
    Threadmarks: Chapter 12

    Here it is, finally, after two years: the finale of Seiren. Only took a soft reboot to get here. But it's not over yet! There's still an epilogue after this to tie up some loose ends. (And of course Red returns in other stories, such as the infamous Hunter, Haunted!) But for now, here is the...

    force yourself to write some amount of words (like 50) in the first unfinished part you have before you write what you want to write. work before play.

    original universe ideas are very rare for me, still havent really gotten any that i could have written into an actual story, but some of my stories have started to wander away from pokemon enough for the premise to be converted original. i kind of want to for example, make a version of hunter...

    Trope of the Month March: The Prophecy

    If a prophecy is vague, it's much harder to say when or if it's come true, or if it ever will. If you say "Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer on 26th of June 2020 at 15:08 Pacific Standard Time" then people will pretty much know you're full of crap when that...

    well there are plenty of examples where villains get progressively more desperate or unstable, and writing a smart villain entails that they learn from their mistakes, which i think counts as development. there's also the possibility of developing towards redemption but something stops that...

    TEEN: Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Hands of Creation

    Finally catching up, though with just quickie comments. I'm trying to get over my review paralysis so I'll likely try keeping this format. SE3 - Goodra Anam OBLITERATES Nihilism With KINDNESS and POSITIVITY james was he dad omg Being claimed by wraiths still isn't real death, but I guess it's...

    Trope of the Month February: The Chosen One

    I mean Mario has been shown to have a rather close relationship with Peach in general. One could argue this might be because he has saved her in the past (which asks the question of what the Mario timeline is, and does anyone really want to suffer the headache of trying to form one), but at...
