  • A typical trainerfic with a typical shiny, a sort of out of focus fic revolving around comforting a character, a superhero sort of story set in the regular world with a pokemon falling in, a story featuring Kyurem […]

  • A PMD fic that actually seems to be doing something unusual, and not just by starting the human-enters-game plot at a different point. Incompetent trainers. Questionable worldbuilding. One of those stories where […]

  • Bunch of trainerfic. One of those where trainers are starting late and there’s almost none of them because what better reaction to criminals having pokemon than to ensure everyone else remains easy pickings, one […]

  • ‘Why is everyone writing thoughts like this? Who popularized it and how can I kill them?’

    You wouldn’t capitalize animal or mouse or dragon, so you shouldn’t capitalize words like pokemon or pikachu or cha […]

  • A lot of stories that don’t really go anywhere today.

    I’m not really seeing the benefit to having the dialogue in Swedish.

    Moreover, this doesn’t seem to be an actual story so much as bits of setup that don’t […]

  • Ah, January. I was feeling lazy and I was pretty sure the fic output would be low, so I let it build up. This covers January 1st-2nd. Some isekai, some no-pokemon AUs, an actual canon divergence fic with Jessie […]

    • I can’t remember the last time I saw a setup with the mom a battler and the father not! Nice.

      I initially read this as batterer. Did not know what to make of it as that prioritizing one type of progressivism over another.

      But as far as battlers, I have recently come across a romhack that does it. On the other hand, no dad. Romhacks are basically Pokémon fanfictions, in so many ways.

      Pokemon Unbound is the big Romhack of 2020, and it feels like I’m trap in a bad fanfiction. Ever bad Romhack has a bad conversation with Arceus at the beginning. Unbound basically boasts its features, so maybe I should not judge.

      Whatever, I’m might leave this type of storytelling as suddenly as I reentered it.

  • So, this summer I took part in a fanfic game where people pretended to be other people, and I finally went back to review the last fics because it’s that time of year.

    Training Data

    Social media and […]

  • It’s that time of year, everyone!

    Expect Dresdening soon.

  • With creepypasta apparently no longer popular, what horror fic remained made for a peaceful little stroll. One was actually good! Others were not, but in a diversity of ways.

    [Also, the plot of my story will be […]

    I both stockpile and write daily, but I tend mostly toward the writing daily.

    Well, there’s two different sorts of melodrama. Katniss’ dramatic description of her house fits with the human POV kind you’re talking about, but the victor’s houses being spared is melodramatic on the narrative scale. The way the world itself tends toward the same…[Read more]

    For what it’s worth, as an outsider looking in, gender essentialism seems somewhat common in the trans community, especially as a form of gatekeeping.

    I really don’t think that’s a fair claim.

    Trans-ness by nature proves there’s a mental component to gender and that it’s not just about how society socializes kids based on to what’s between a…[Read more]

  • The main problem with your theory here is that you have Harry’s backstory entirely wrong

    The thing about ongoing works is that Harry’s backstory as of Book 30 is not necessarily what his backstory was in Book 3. For that matter, just in these three books it’s clear the background and worldbuilding have been shifting around so they’re not f…[Read more]

  • It’s still fabricating evidence, but it’s not pinning things on people. It’s probably not as hard as it seems. Lots of cases just go cold for perfectly normal reasons.See, that’s what I’m assuming because Murphy seems like a good person, but every time the subject comes up it’s about how this posting is supposed to ruin the person’s career. We kn…[Read more]

  • A big issue to me is the only thing we see Wardens doing is going for the people they already know about, which suggests all registering your organization would do is as soon as anything goes wrong the Wardens wipe you out and only actually investigate when killing everyone they know about didn’t solve the problem.

    But, it’s possible that’s…[Read more]

  • and her parents being on board points to something really seriously being wrong with her home life far beyond one creep.

    Oh, I figured we can take that as a given. It’s a full traditional wedding with a photographer and everything. Plus if her family objected back then, she’d have people on her side when the divorce happened telling her he was…[Read more]

  • I mean, that is Shinji’s second-least incestuous ship, so…

  • It’s particularly confusing when Harry’s type seemed like it was milfs in the first book. But then the second had the high school college werewolves and the third had sexy homeless child.

  • So I looked it up at the time, because I too was thinking this sounded hard to believe, but:

    1) Seventeen is currently legal in the state, and a lot of those laws are actually horrifically recent, so if this is set in 2000 and the marriage happen ten years ago…

    2) Age laws are actually about avoiding single mothers. If you’re willing to…[Read more]

  • but seems to mostly content itself with throwing Wardens at obvious problems

    But do they even do that much?

    I could see the occult groups accepting WC oversight in return for protection, but we know Harry and the rest of the magical community weren’t able to call for backup during any of the massive clusterfucks that were the past three…[Read more]

  • Yeah, I wonder if it’s a matter of actually not realizing that, or if he thinks it’s a way to make Harry cooler. Like this pathetic beta male actually cares what he looks like because consequences for his actions exist, but not Harry, Harry shows up when he wants looking how he wants and the client will beg for his help anyway.
