• Hello all! The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier. Please have a read over the new forum rules here.
  • Hey guys! Have you heard? We now have popup
    Yes, Popups!
    messages for your forum posts. Learn more about it here!
  • Hey everyone, if you hadn't heard, information about Sword and Shield has been leaking. Outside of the designated threads in our Current Events section, please keep all unrevealed Pokemon, names, or any other information in spoiler tags. This policy will be in effect until January 3rd. This is an exciting time for Pokémon fans, enjoy yourselves!
  • Recently, some of our fellow Pokémon fan sites have received legal requests to take down leaked Sword and Shield images. We have not received one of these requests yet, but we are taking some preemptive measures to stay on the safe side. We ask that from now until the games release (November 15th) that you do not post any new leaked images anywhere on the forums.

Too busy with my new job to keep participating for now, hope to pick this up again later. Sad to see my writewar was a civil one, if you will, but it's not surprising!

Best of luck to everyone else in these challenges.

Late to the claim, but these bad boys all snuck in before the deadline. True to form, I didn't start until way too late.

I'd like reviews on some rise by sin if possible!

Count me in, but how do we prove we've been reading?

Well, I didn't read as much as I would have liked, but this was essentially a public way of forcing me to read and review something. And look at that, my list of 'God, I owe people a lot of reviews' isn one shorter. Woohoo - I'll review two of my own chapters. A+ for everyone.

Shit, still need to review SRBS. Don't think that can count towards this war, either. ;P
I have plans that'll stop me from reviewing five fics to my usual reviewing standards by this deadline so I'm passing on this one, but don't let me keep forgetting about my reviews already owed! @PeaceSign did you decide on a fic to be reviewed?

actually, I think we had this discussion a few months back in the aftermath of one of the other wars, and we decided for now that pyramid schemes are great reviews that are wagered in previous wars can count for future wars? it's up to you though; this system is incredibly in-flux at the moment

I may have misunderstood the 3+ chapters part when I signed up, because I only got one chapter reviewed before patting myself on the back. With just three hours left, do I lose?

(if I didn't lose, here's the chapter I published as part of this)
