Some varied stuff today, but mostly short chapters that don’t go anywhere. Another type segregation fic, too.
Tag: Pokemon fanfic
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.
The author asked me to continue with the gardevoir story, so I did. Other stories were unremarkable.
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.
Mostly unremarkable OT fic, but there’s one fic with an actually realistic Japanese setting that looks like it may be decent. (more…)
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.
It’s scary reviews day!!! (more…)
Mostly unremarkable stuff, one instance of Giratina pigeonholing.
The theme today ended up being Ash betrayal fic, strangely. We also have a Pacific Rim ripoff, and a SYOC fic that looks halfway decent.
So as you may or may not know, I’ve gotten a bit more up-front with my SYOC reviews: I give a warning about the risks of SYOC and link to the thread, and only submit a character if this doesn’t get me blocked. Back in August, I did this to one SYOC and discovered the author was the most immature manchild I have ever encountered. But in a twist, they actually liked my character, and vowed that they would prove me wrong about SYOC being doomed to failure.
The story is now gone without a trace, but the PM trail is still a worthwhile story in itself.
Today we have a wild Enos! The story is actually decently written otherwise, but still so awkward.
A weird story where pokemon lose their powers and are despised by the human populace for no conceivable reason; a well-written story from a pokemon’s perspective about how poaching is very wrong and totally different from training; and a decently-written Giratina character study that, unfortunately, tries to explain a particularly nonsensical game mechanic. It does not succeed.
The anime fic has not ended. The anime fic shall never end. If FFN wasn’t run by ghosts, I would seriously consider starting a letter-writing campaign.
A lot of unremarkable OT fic. There is one real-world fic about Japan using pokemon to take over the world, but the first chapter ends before that happens because the author decided to spend all their time on genealogy instead; and a “realistic” fic set in a pokemon world without pokemon, because that makes sense.
Some slightly better than average stuff today, and two fics that really don’t seem to understand the implications of talking pokemon. So much anime fic, though. What more must I do?
A Black/White novelization, a fic about how pokephiliacs are just as oppressed as gay people, and something about the legendaries that might have been interesting if it hadn’t used stream-of-consciousness as an excuse for incoherence. Also, a lot of anime fic.
