    EVERYONE: What Do You Listen To While You Write/Draw?

    @LightningTopaz That's so true about Fairy Tail. I've come to hate the anime, but the music is actually really good. Thanks for reminding me.

    Isn't that what the anime did. The anime was never really limited to the moves in the game. Combo moves, or hybrid moves aren't original until you give them a new name like the example you just gave with Aerodactyl. In the end it's all about creativity. On the other hand - and just like the...

    POPULAR: Plot Bunny Zoo

    @AceTrainer14 I mean it really depends on the laws you set for your fanfiction. FEAR Rattata only work because the game is turn based, so you would have to apply that law to your fanfic universe. As for well-tailored Smeargle, I don't see why that wouldn't work in any fanfic, in fact if it's...

    EVERYONE: What Do You Listen To While You Write/Draw?

    Pokemon game soundtracks on a loop. Depending on the scene or location I'll change it up. So if it's a battle, it'll be battle music. If I'm doing a scene in a particular city then I'll listen to the soundtrack of that city.

    TEEN: Heart Swap

    Okay, so I've been a long time lurker here in the writers's workshop. I had been planning out this awesome saga for a really, and I mean REALLY long time. And finally I decided that I'm just going to write something new instead... sorry. The only thing I came up with for this story is the...

    I think they were just building up for the whole 20th anniversary thing. I've suspected that they would release a new gen soon, mostly because there weren't many in gen 6 to begin with. After gen 5, it seems like they've been trying to bring it back to the older gens. First mega evos, and now...

    TEEN: Pokemon Academy Year III: Childhood's Ripperoni

    Alright, I'm back from my long nap, and just in time for school apparently. Okay, so I haven't read the first two installments in the series, so I do have a question or two. In chapter 1 you mention that Miko is a "Perfect"? Also, I'm unfamiliar with most of the characters, and other than the...

    EVERYONE: Higher Dimensions of Thought

    So I published this thing I wrote recently to a site called Medium. Which is like the long form version of twitter. I thought I'd publish it here as well, since I'd love to discuss it. So, give it a quick read if you have the time and tell me what you think. Just don't overthink it. Link to the...

    Trying to create theme song for series. Any ideas?

    When writing song lyrics, I found that writing the Chorus of the song first and then filling out the rest of the song in parts between the chorus, while following the the theme I have in mind really makes thing easier.

    TEEN: Crossover Battles (Cynthia Carter v. Steven Stone)

    Re: Crossover Battles This is a great idea. I loved the battle, even if it was between two little bugs in the forest. I look forward to the next installments.

    How Do You Write Your Chapters?

    You know, it's weird for me. I mean I haven't written anything with chapter format for a while, but when I do write, generally I plan ahead. I found though, that when I wing it, the result is a lot better. I do have a big picture in mind, and an end goal usually, but not always. However, I try...

    TEEN: The Long Walk

    Well this was a great chapter, well worth the wait. In fact, considering the content, I think it was a good idea to write the prequel before this chapter, it put things in perspective when it comes to Josh and girls. I loved the captain's dialogue, it felt smooth and authentic, and I very much...

    MATURE: Poison Touch v2.0

    This was really fun and funny to read. The dialogue is really well written, and I really like Anthony, he's a lot of fun, as is Square. I actually didn't foresee such a progression with the story, but it's very much welcome. I love how Anthony reacts to all the new things that just came about...

    COMPLETE: A Da Vinci Smile (TEEN)

    Re: A Da Vinci Smile (III) Well, I still found myself having a little laugh as I read this. Even if the ending was rather sad, it was the only way you could have ended it without pissing me off, so congrats :P I'm kidding though, seriously this was a great short, and I'm glad you took the time...

    COMPLETE: A Da Vinci Smile (TEEN)

    Seriously, I loved reading this. I came expecting at least a one laugh, and got plenty. The character interactions are so organic and believable, and your characterization is top notch, despite the fact that the chapters are short. I can't wait for more, and I'm hoping you'll surprise me...

    COMPLETE: A Da Vinci Smile (TEEN)

    Nice. I loved this. The description was vivid, and I could feel that I was there with Joshua on the dance floor ... stumbling. I could totally relate to that feeling of being the nerd with an outgoing cousin too. I really liked how you added a second language to your work as well. It gave it...

    I totally laughed at loud at this. I always imagine someone over reacting like: BUT NOT 2, 1, 3, 4! Don’t get crazy on us. :P Anyway, I'm not going to give you a review since this is merely a taste of whats to come, but let me tell you it's delicious. I really liked what you did with the...
