• Hello all! The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier. Please have a read over the new forum rules here.
  • Hey guys! Have you heard? We now have popup
    Yes, Popups!
    messages for your forum posts. Learn more about it here!
  • Hey everyone, if you hadn't heard, information about Sword and Shield has been leaking. Outside of the designated threads in our Current Events section, please keep all unrevealed Pokemon, names, or any other information in spoiler tags. This policy will be in effect until January 3rd. This is an exciting time for Pokémon fans, enjoy yourselves!
  • Recently, some of our fellow Pokémon fan sites have received legal requests to take down leaked Sword and Shield images. We have not received one of these requests yet, but we are taking some preemptive measures to stay on the safe side. We ask that from now until the games release (November 15th) that you do not post any new leaked images anywhere on the forums.

    For more information, see this thread

  • Oh, by the way! I've been working on a little mini writing project in my spare time. Bit of an unusual one in many regards. Do you think you'd be able to possibly take a look at it for me? :>

    Hey I'm really sorry for being so terrible and not replying after you sent me this ages ago. I'm sorry to be so rubbish but I simply haven't read it yet as it's been a crazy busy couple of weeks. I am hoping to find time to do so tomorrow but I really can't promise anything. What I can promise is that I won't forget (and obviously haven't). Sorry D:

    It's all right, if you're busy you're busy, know the feel well. Note that because of the timeline thing I don't need comments/looking over the first chapter anymore, but still would like you to look at the second chapter if you can! :)
    Ayyy, I hope you don't think I'm being oppositional-- I just enjoy having debates about the WW!

    Hey, not at all! I really enjoyed both of your replies - the idea was most certainly to generate discussion rather than to put forward an agenda! I think what you wrote was very helpful, insightful, and a very valuable contribution to the discussion.

    Whew, good! I get concerned about my replies on a forum because they can come across as caustic by accident. And thanks! I'm back on the sidelines just watching at this point. And did you ever get a chance to read my fic?
    Super late reply! >_< Thanks for the condolences. Things still have been stalled since then. As for here, things have changed a lot over the years here. Blogs aren't as popular as they were back in the heyday. And it kinda feels like there's a different stigma in the workshop these days, though it's hard to describe. Kind of been drifting away from it because of that with some exceptions.

    I was actually talking about this with someone else recently too! I think you're 100% right. Reviews seem to have gotten more in depth and detailed, which is great, but much less personal. Feels like there's a bit less of a community element to the WW than there was back when you and I were more active. In fact, I'm going to write a post in the Written Word about that right this moment!

    It's like everyone wants to focus on helping others improve as writers, not realizing this stuff's a hobby for some people. Not saying helping with those stories isn't bad. But they in the end just want to entertain and not win a Pulitzer. And in the end isn't the ultimate goal of even those who aspire to be writers? To entertain? Analytical reviews often falter _hard_ on whether you're doing well on that front, which is my big issue with that style. It's why I've always tried to mix up both comments and things I've spotted whenever I've reviewed.

    Yes, I think you've absolutely hit the nail on the head with that! Have you seen the thread I posted last night in the Written Word subforum? I think you'd find the posts there interesting and if you felt like saying something I think that would be great too!

    Haha that sounds like a path I want to head down! I hope I’m already on it lol

    I vanished for a while myself, but the draw of old friends/bulbafam just couldn’t let me fully abandon everything. I’m still not really “here” but I try and pop in from time to time, just to give it a poke and see how the site and atmosphere is changing c:

    Hey sorry for late reply. Have you managed to make it any further down that path?

    I see you're retired staff now. Do you still have social staff access at all? I recall whether or not retired staff should retain that was a big issue back when we were both still on staff.
    yourlilemogirl
    yourlilemogirl
    Naw you’re good ♡ and I think I am :3

    Haha yeah I do, I kinda never left the social circle when I retired years ago. I just would vanish for weeks at a time on my own accord lol
    Hey Gastly's Mama :)

    Things are good with me on the whole. How about you? Are you staff atm or no?

    Don't forget you can WA me any time you want!

    Nah, I haven't been staff since late 2016. Got a retired badge now, I served my time on the frontlines, now it's time to relax and enjoy my old years :p

    Yeah, but I feel like I'm pestering on there though haha.
    Gama
    Gama
    Hey, sorry not to have replied. And also dw at all about pestering me via WA - I don't reply quickly enough on WA for it to be a nuisance :p

    How are things going more generally?

    Of course! I shall never forget Flame Haze.

    Are you writing anything atm btw? In particular anything not too many chapters in so I stand a chance of catching up :p

    On that note, I posted the second part of Fuji late last week if you're interested :)
    Hey, hope you're well :)

    Hello, good to hear from you!

    It's all good in the hood with me. Feel like I've been saying this for years now, but I'm planning to get more active here again.

    How are you?
    Ayyyy, you don't know me, but you commented on a shitty one-shot of mine back in the day. It changed my life, yo. Thanks.

    "Veteran Gastly's Mama would like to battle!"

    Oops, it's called The Deprogramming. You can read it now! And I'm trying (emphasis on the trying, man) to get Chapter IV out within a few days. I just have SO MANY THINGS to do, and, alas, so little time to write!

    I've read chapter one so far. Haven't commented as waiting until up to date. I'll try to catch up over next few days and reply properly.

    For now - cool concept, hadn't occurred to me before but now it has I'm surprised more stories of that kind haven't been here (or weren't when I was more regular). Tone too is good fun!

    Hurray! This is so surreal-- just a few years ago, it was me lurking around. And I'm glad you like it!! You don't see that many "sucked into video game" fics, but I know they're out there. I'm almost done with Chapter IV, so you'll have a good chunk of material to mull over.
    I've also read some of your Dr. Fuji fic, so I'll give you a review on that soon!

    Oh, yes, I had this one, too when we were both around. But as for my other name, it was Johnny Gaddar. :)

    Whassup?

    Ah, of course! Are you coming back to writing too?

    I'm currently working on a reboot of Brotherhood. Not sure if you'll recall it.

    The Booty Warrior
    Well now that you mention it, yes I am. I'm currently reworking an idea for a journey fic I had years ago but never got around to writing.

    Brotherhood...three brothers, sibling rivalry, Dragon Pokemon users?
    duuuuuuuuudeeeeee

    but how have you been man?

    Well good that you're still one! :p

    I've been well. I'm thinking of relaunching Brotherhood.

    Hi. I'm the Project Manager of Crossover Battles. There was some hypothetical interest in using one of your characters, if you gave permission, so if you could clear out some inbox space and message me back if/when you see this it would be great. Thank you!
    No, don't think so. But I can't remember. I just haven't seen you online in ages :/
    Yeah, I'm hoping to eventually get a Ph.D. and work with jellyfish and coral.

    Telling people they're wrong is indeed always fun! My dad does it a lot as part of his job.
    Congrats on finishing uni. What's the job? Anything interesting?

    Yeah, I'm going to community college with the plan to transfer to TSU or Corpus after two years for a marine science degree.
    I'm doing well! Got a few more months of high school left, and then it'll be time to graduate! Yourself?
