    POPULAR: Cliches in Pokémon Fanfiction

    Those stories basically mirror mythologies from just about every inhabited continent in which humans were said to have in ancient times mated or married with animals or part-animal beings, often, but not always in a period before humans were differentiated from other creatures. To take that and...

    Writers' Workshop General Chat Thread

    I wrote this, got it published in an anthology, and forgot about it for several years.

    POPULAR: What Did You Write Today?

    Got the first two pages of Episode 78 done on my fic. I guess I'm officially "on track" again. Gotta keep writing though.

    DISCUSSION: Shiny Pokemon in Fan Fiction

    I just realized I've never since I first started writing fics in 2000, ever, featured a shiny Pokémon. I honestly never even considered it. I'm not too concerned about it, I mean it can possibly seem forced or gratuitous, but of the fics I've read, I've never saw a shiny Pokémon that made me...

    POPULAR: What Did You Write Today?

    Okay, here's some of what I forced out today. My over-large fic that I'm still trying to finish is in screenplay format but they're some prose sections so here's a bit I finally typed down today. I probably wouldn't have written at all today if not for this thread, so, good idea OP.

    POPULAR: What Did You Write Today?

    Man, this thread really puts a fire up under me, I need to get my butt jn gear and get to work on finishing my unscalably large fic from back in the day.

    POPULAR: Cliches in Pokémon Fanfiction

    On the League = Government issue... I basically had it set up in my fic that the League was a branch of the government that concerned itself with promoting Pokemon Training as a past time/'martial art", providing healthcare for Pokemon owners, cracking down on Pokemon abuse, and fighting...

    DISCUSSION: Writing Minority Characters

    If we're trying to have respectful representations of non-white people, describing them visually by evoking comparisons to non-human creatures doesn't have an especially attractive history attached to it, and it pretty much coincides with the idea of white people as being the "default" human...

    DISCUSSION: Fictional Creature Collective Nouns

    A "mess" of Trubbish. A "battery" of Clauncher. Sorry I cant think of any more right now.

    The Pokemon Switch Version

    I still can't get over the fact that many people seemed to think that the announcement of Ultra Sun and Moon for 3DS constituted a declaration from Nintendo/Game Freak that they would keep the main series on 3DS permanently and refuse to eventually move on to Switch. There were even outraged...

    Was about to go to bed, then I saw these links. Oh well. Who needs sleep.

    POPULAR: Cliches in Pokémon Fanfiction

    Well, that might as well be, because Super Mystery Dungeon itself basically comes off to me like a fan-game made with the ripped models from Pokédex 3D Pro. Not that I didn't buy it anyway of course.

    DISCUSSION: When Ideas From Your Fic Coincidentally Show Up Later in Canon

    Has anyone else ever had an experience where something you came up with in a fic later on ends up becoming featured in canon to the point where no one would ever believe YOU came up with the idea first? To start the thread off, I'll offer an example I came across. In 2009, I started an overly...

    Capitalization Rules for Pokemon? (Discussion Topic)

    "coke" is considered a generic in in the UK? I ask cause I know in North America the generic form would be considered "cola". Interesting, because I remember "Coke" being used as a proper noun when spoken in dialog by a character in Philip Pullman's "The Subtle Knife", but in that same...

    Writers' Workshop General Chat Thread

    Oh yeah, THAT nonsense. The last "big one" in March actually left my neighborhood with less snow after the "bilzzard" than before. And being I live on a coastal island, I was expecting to get the worst of it.
