    There are plenty of fics written during the course of the show, so something not being up to date on the canon shouldn't be surprising. Just mention it and you should be fine. As for everything already having been done... it goes for any story. As the saying goes, nothing new under the sun...

    oh, alright, i was talking about it in the context of a character without other healing moves. i think the logic itself working depends on how you describe it. a mon sprouting roots and using them to drain the environment makes sense to me, but a mon drawing nutrients and water to them...

    i mean it makes sense to me since it's grass type and plants are known to absorb things (hell, that's why they're SE against water), but are you sure it won't become one of those "why didn't they just" situations later? being able to heal by yourself (nearly) anywhere at any time may get in the...

    adjectives can be a pitfall imo. they shouldn't be exclusively relied on in description or used as a shortcut, much like adverbs. giving concrete details that support and imply a larger, abstract concept is better than saying the word for the concept itself - for example, showing that a monster...

    TEEN: Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Hands of Creation

    Chapter 65 Ahhh... alright, this does make the Mystics more vulnerable in the death situation. Though now I'm not sure where the spirits inside the Orbs come from? It can't just be Star and Arceus that have the power to bring them there, or they'd have to be the ones responsible for all of...

    @namohysip Wasn't Hands of Creation partially RP based? If so, got any pointers? Halloween isn't really celebrated here outside some themed parties and the odd decoration. However, we have something pretty similar to trick-or-treating on Palm Sunday called virvonta where kids dress up as...

    weirdly enough my dad brought up these new games just as i'd opened this thread and seen the messages about it. it's a good thing i told him my opinion on it and that i don't want him to get it for me in case he was thinking of it, because he was (because he's a sweet dad and i love him). i just...

    What Cress says is true, bad or strange publicity is more effective than good publicity. Even if Fallout: Equestria is not generally considered bad from what I've heard, it absolutely has the reputation of "that one fanfic that's super long (and has a considerable fanbase so it actually has to...

    I would not trust that. Literally anyone can make a TV Tropes page. I've heard of stories where some authors' friends make a page for their fic just for fun. It's all about whether someone who reads wants to make a page or not. Naturally, if you have more readers, the chance is higher, but one...

    Okay, so the MLP fics have a very simple explanation behind them. The early 2010s had an incredible surge of brony content as the fandom's size snowballed due to the strong identity associated with it (sense of community against the majority who don't think girls' cartoons can be good or watched...

    Hi there! Been meaning to check this out since it was posted, but never got around to it until now. Here are my thoughts on the prologue and first chapter. I feel like this paragraph is rendered a bit redundant by the ones that follow, as Haru does end up doing pretty much what's described...

    i mean knowing this little, it's hard to give fitting advice, but it kinda sounds like you've maybe approached the planning from the investigation's perspective? that will be necessary once it's written, but i think it's better to make the crime and its timeline first and then think of what kind...
