    Oh, absolutely. Reviewing to get reviews in return is sort of like the plastic straw ban of the writing world—it will absolutely not be the panacea for your problem, but doing it is just one step down the road of a million things that you’ll need to do to eventually maybe somehow fix your...

    I can’t speak to AO3 and FIM, but what drives me to read/review on other forums/sites pretty much boils down to if I see them reviewing other things. Doesn’t have to be reviews for my own work (and often isn’t); I just find it valuable to understand what their desired level of feedback is as...

    I actually like it as a running theme -- humans are the odd ones out in the Pokemon universe. They can't attack and they're incredibly fragile. So of course your normal human constructs like buildings and bullets aren't going to do much; they're limited by the fact that humans are on the bottom...

    I love how they describe klefki as “fiercely jingling” to deter attackers. It’s such a cute image.

    ^having a place to compile a user’s favorite authors/stories would also be nice; I know FFN has a lotta disadvantages vs XenForo (looking at you, formatting manager), but this is one of the features I like. defs beats having to search

    Depending on where you’re planning on posting — I’m pretty sure BMG’s current version takes italics/bolds from the source, so if it’s formatted in your text doc, you won’t need to reformat!

    I haven't read one, but I have written one! Two reasons: first, because a portion of the backstory involved a bunch of the palm trees on Fisherman's Wharf turning into exeggutor and murdering thousands in San Fran, and I figured it'd be distasteful for in-universe botanists to be "hurr durr...

    !!! people who think death note is underrated unite? no but actually if I hear one more analysis about how a kid going from a well-intentioned slacker to a mass murderer over the course of five minutes is a good example of well-paced character development I’m gonna eat a potato chip

    yo, these look sick!! my best guesses -- Kanto -- three stars for the birds; it's indigo colored for the league? The red/yellow/blue are probably for the birds specifically, although it should be noted that most of the cities are also named after those colors. Dunno why it's a moon. Johto --...

    Yeah, I like that one and the sunless namibia Hoenn one the most as far as realism goes, although I gotta admit the Kanto one looks really slick.

    I have a weird thing where I don’t get hungry, so I usually just cook all at once on Sunday and then unquestionably eat the exact same thing throughout the week. It’s not terribly fun, but I really hate washing dishes lol. This week is green curry lentils with stewed tomatoes and it turned out...
