    I agree, though I should clarify that I'm referring specifically to words that are unaltered from their original spelling (obviously aside from, say, Japanese words being romanized).

    So... how would y'all answer someone claiming you're pronouncing a particular word incorrectly when you're actually using the correct pronunciation (generally with foreign words, i.e. ninja)? In other words, you say the word correctly, and they call you one thing or another and complain that...

    I know next to nothing about them, but if what I've gathered from various places is anything to go by, it's a fic that ships the reader ("you") with a character in said fic. That's as much as I understand, though.

    A small tidbit from one of my lessons in school today: I feel like this is really important to remember, whether you're reviewing a story, or even just watching a show or reading a book. Always view the characters as characters.

    Probably somewhere around #1... :P If it's not a graphic novel of some sort, I'll only occasionally pick one up to flip around, but I haven't read through a book in years (I last left off in the middle of The Hobbit, which is, of course, a novel). That doesn't have an effect on my liking of...

    Well, unfortunately it looks like I won't make it into the URPG contest after all... seeing as literally all I jotted down were two characters and a few bullet points on my outline. Even so, a big ol' "Thank you" to @AceTrainer14 is in order for the encouragement he consistently offered! I'll...

    Oof... I had it in my mind all last week, and completely forgot for the last few days. ...Bah, who says 1000-4000 words can't be written in less than a week with school and all the pre-writing preparations and the proofreading? No pressure! I'll do it! I WILL!

    Like the word "Pokémon" being a term for Pokémon; in other words, any terms not exceeding one word (unlike, say, Poké Ball, which is two words) that are relatively lengthy. Though I'd assume there wouldn't be many since everyone's so punny around here. :P Why not just go in-depth on your honest...

    ...aaaand I just noticed I wrote "still" twice in my last sentence. See, kids, this is why you proofread! :P On a random note, and out of curiousity, has anyone come up with any considerably lengthy one-word terms for their stories?

    The contest sounds like fun, but I'm not confident in my ability (or rather, motivation) to write 1000-4000 words before May 12th... especially since my birthday's not long before then. :p Still, even in the more-than-likely event I don't participate, I'm still looking forward to the results! :)

    Reading the end first would ruin the book more than if you read it through to the "bad ending". Take mystery novels, for example. If you read the last chapter or two first and then started over, there'd be little to no tension during the plot because you know how it's resolved in advance. Also...

    I've always thought this way about Shinies. I'd just say, "Do you really need it?" I mean, not to be impolite or discourage any Shiny-hunters, of course. Feel free to do that sort of thing if it's your... thing. :P

    I keep each chapter in a folder along with some other documents related to the story; I always have! In other words, keeping them all in one document is new to me. Also, am I the only one that writes my chapters well under the length of a book chapter? I'm thinking I'll go a bit longer with my...

    Planning to mess around in Fun and Games here on Bulbagarden, but that's about it, really. My memory's never been good enough to do an all-day April Fool's joke, unfortunately.

    Totally agree with this. Some topics are like time capsules if they're old or long enough! Also, I should clarify, those threads over in the aforementioned other forum aren't deleted if they're necroposted in, they're just locked. The staff members just recommend the creation of a new topic on...

    On a different forum (that I'm currently on hiatus from), they don't allow necroposting because there may be users in those threads that aren't around anymore, or users that hold different opinions now than what was expressed in that thread (especially if the topic is several years old). That...

    I've gotten way too deep into the habit of speaking this word as it's written that it took me at least two seconds to remember how it's properly pronounced.
