Refreshingly calm responses today.

Some mildly interesting stuff today: a journeyfic with a pokemon professor, and a fluffy romance fic with the pairing Ash/Arceus. Yes, I’m just as confused as you.
“yes but novels are different as if I was breaking TOS then I would have done that with all my other story chapters so logically its bullshit that I get hate when people are just greedy all I do is grant peoples dreams but it never works out for me.”
The author asked me to continue with the gardevoir story, so I did. Other stories were unremarkable.
“But what truly amuses me is that the people on the Capitalization-Thread do not realize that you are actually the troll, the one who is attempting to rile them up over a petty argument, and seem to be succeeding, unfortunately. But that will not work for everyone, and sooner or later you run into a wall headfirst. You must have been lucky for the past 16 years on this site, nothing less, nothing more.
Just know this. Your attempts to toy with other authors will come back to haunt you, for even if you had written a thousand stories, it would negligible compared the great number already on this site, the ones written by the general populace. Banning others is not a solution, and neither is it an option one can use in repetition. Because sooner or later, you’ll run out of people to ban.”
Why are we getting so many people who have apparently never seen a real troll before?
Today there’s an attempt at a humanxgardevoir romance that is so totally different from mindless porn you guys. It very much does not succeed.
“OK then but you don’t need to give me a whole list of everything that you thought was terrible in my story. Not everyone can live p to this “perfect” expectations of yours. It’s just a story.”
I’m blaming the English curriculum for this.
One grimdark noir-like thing about how guns are awesome, and a generic chosen one YA novel where everyone has pokemon names. Generally boring otherwise.
“I suggest going to a library somewhere around you and finding the Warrior cats and Ranger’s Apprentice series to read. Those will help you with grasping many different forms of emotion and writing, and possibly help you to grow beyond what you currently are.”
(It’s funny because I actually have read Warrior Cats and it is… not good.)
Mostly unremarkable OT fic, but there’s one fic with an actually realistic Japanese setting that looks like it may be decent. (more…)
The manchild from a few months ago requested a review, apparently in some bizarre attempt at a gotcha. I chose to indulge him.
“Also, try telling the whole typo thing to every author in the world, see if they would recall all their books to fix ‘incredibly simple errors’ for you.”
“I did not want to include the family line of Cosmog, Cosmoem, Lunala, Solgaleo, or Necrozma, as they are partly responsible for making the Ultra Wyrmholes in the first place”
However, we also get a reasonable excuse for writing in a non-native language, doing it for a course at an English-speaking university.
Today we have a trainer who actually seems to be walking the walk on pokemon treatment! It’s the softball version where the pokemon are all sycophantic cheerleaders anyway, but still, baby steps.
I return to Undertale fandom for Halloween! On FFN this time. To my disappointment, the fandom has almost completely devolved into poorly-explained AU fic since I last checked in. Underfell isn’t the only one anymore.
