Charapost 6: The Backstroke of the West

So, it’s been nearly three months since I made one of these! There was a little activity in June, but afterwards SYOC fic just tanked. Plenty was posted, but everything was dead on arrival. I was holding out for more updates, but it doesn’t seem like that’s going to happen. Most of these are unfortunately pretty boring, but the chosen guardians story did update again.


[25] The Other Pokereviews, Part 63

Today we have a Guzma origin story that makes him the privileged Z-user; a gay love story that spends a page tooting its horn about how it’s God’s gift to the queer community; and a well-written Nuzlocke fic that somehow manages to make everyone look even more horrible than normal. Also, someone writes a gigantic rant about me in their author’s note instead of just blocking me.


The Other Pokeauthors, Part 62

“You seem to be convinced that the convention of the English language is to not capitalize the names of Pokémon, but this is clearly false. The convention of every single person using the English language to write about Pokémon, except for you and perhaps handful of others on this website, is to capitalize them. While you may not like it, the English language has adopted this new convention to talk about these new entities. It doesn’t frankly matter whether “a Pilot’s eyes” is correct, because we not talking about pilots, we’re talking about Pokémon. To use such a condescending example despite its irrelevance is to discredit yourself as an authority. “


Pokeauthors Special Spotlight: Armchair Therapy 2

An author discovers the blog and has a meltdown because showing what people objectively said is defamation now. They express this concern by posting conspiracy theories about me everywhere, because my critics are hypocrites. I tell them to think positive and stop sending me death threats.

“I find it very funny that i originally posted this on FictionPress & i was told that Pokemon stuff don’t belong there & i need to post it here & when i do, i’m now getting told that my story isn’t allowed here for my writing style? WTF can a guy post his story he worked on for 2 years & have people review the story itself instead of where its at or how i write it?”

“And for your final question, it’s because humans are boring. You get nothing from them. What can we do? Just point a knife at someone and yell to get what we want? Why be boring like that? Nobody wants to read a story with nothing special going on and you know that. So before you criticize any person’s idea, if suggest writing something of your own that isn’t so short.”

Also, someone gets really weirdly invested in my opinion on their pokescrewing fic.
