Today’s author is of Smogon U, a SYOC story where pokemon go to college. Pokemon are all segregated into dorms by type, and I was rewarded with some amazing stuff when I pointed out how silly that was.

“Also it IS perfectly acceptable to create a line of dialogue in the way as I have in here. It’s something I’m exceptionally picky about. I would know since I’ve honestly attained a bachelor’s degree in the English writing field and have never had these taken off or commented on before.”
I was going to ask if you guys thought any other field had so many degree-holders hellbent on proving their degree means nothing, but then I remembered that animal sciences person arguing that all female animals come standard with boobs, and there’s those architects making accidental death beams, so yeah, presumably this is just one of those eternal constants.
Mopping up the last few stragglers. Mostly boring, though one author got hilariously affronted at the concept of someone criticizing porn.
Also, “I’m respecting you by not blocking you.”
In which someone responds to my review in German. From what I can tell, they are apparently using a translation program to write their stories. Why do people do this.
A porn author also gets really weird when I try to ask them why they don’t consider pokemon people.
“When I played Black 2, I beat Cheren with a Riolu, and I beat Iris with the same Lucario. Would you rather I used my plan B, which was a Zorua? Does that seem more rare to you? I thought so.” (more…)
In which I track down multiple PDFs of published books to supplement a painstaking explanation of how dialogue is written only to get told that while they agree I’m totally right, their reviewers don’t care so they’re not going to bother changing it.
“I believe I don’t need a bata reader.“ (more…)
As Farla said, I covered romance fic in January. It’s romance fic, so like 99% of my reviews were just standard grammar paragraphs and I won’t bother posting them. Despite this, I managed to get quite a variety of responses!
“Pokephilia is the practice of making love to your pokemon, which is frowned upon in the crossover me and Orthros are doing. With said license Zeke and or Terry will be able to make love to their Partners. if they were to do this they’d would have unnecessary negativity from the public.”
But also a bunch of replies from the past! (more…)
“Can you read the story? Yes, Do you understand what’s going on? Yes,” (more…)
“You yourself read the kind of stories once in your lifetime that you now criticise.”
“My entire life the only time I’ve not seen a Pokémon’s name capitalized is in fics with shitty grammar. Go complain to those, instead of a story written by a damn English major.” (more…)
Pretty chill. (more…)
Almost all nice today! And what wasn’t was hilariously over the top in aggression, so all in all, pretty good. (more…)
Wherein someone refuses to read the capitalization thread or any of my arguments because “I would rather be happy with my story, albeit wrong than unhappy and right.”
