Damn I knew there should have been an apostrophe! I second guessed myself, I’ll fix that right away.
Thank you, I’ve been bogged down before on stories while I have so many ideas. I thought this could be both interesting, fun, and solve my problem.
Glad the time and date is justified.
I’ll get to the punctuation and other grammatical bits as soon as I can. It’s 11pm over where I am so I will be going to bed first, but as soon as I can tomorrow I’ll be correcting all the little things.
Yeah riolu IS way overused, the two biggest reasons to why I still went with her are that I’ve had the stories going about in my mind for years, and it is pretty integral to how Felix can understand pokemon.
And I have something very special planned for why she was there in the schoolyard. Sad too, I can’t wait to write it.
I’ll look into some condensing of the chapter, I did think it drifted a bit myself and I do have betas. Two in fact. But they are learning as well, together with me I like to think.
Thanks again ^^
9h agoAlso, may I ask, how do you deal with Dragon’s Blaze and the others? Within minutes of posting my stoey I had two of them to come ‘warn’ me about you and then after your review, which is one of the best reviews I have ever gotten, I had one more coming to disagree with you for the sake of disagreeing. It was really insulting. I can handle negative reviews and all, but they were even saying that the good things you pointed out to be the worst parts and wouldn’t explain why after I contacted them. Just harped on more about you.
I looked into Dragon’s Blaze, I’ve seen their reviews around a lot and was not thinking they were helpful, and found they got a critical review from you. So they have declared war? What good is that?
Sorry. You probably just ignore them and I will too, just bothered me.
secs agoYes, I just ignore them. Don’t feed the trolls, etc. A full list of their known sockpuppets is here if you want to block them: https://www.fanfiction.net/topic/11834/171837508/1/Dragon-s-Blaze-sockpuppets-and-friends

Following your review on my story (And even beforehand) I was told by about three different accounts that you are a ‘jerk’ and I should block you immediately. I just wanted to get in touch with you to hear your own side of the story and whether or not they can be trusted.
secs agoSure. I made a summary of events on the “Misc Discussion Post” page of the blog Dragon Quill, at the end of the comments. You’re free to comment there if you have any questions.
7m agoThanks man, I’ll check it out.
btw, I appreciate the non-sugercoated way of reviewing you’ve adopted; it’s a lot more efficient than beating round the bush.

Hey! I wanted to thank you for your review. I have received several PMs and even a review from someone warning me about you, Farla, and a few others. I’m not sure what that’s all about.
I’m an author in my own right with my own publishing company. I think that it might be that some of these people do not know how to take constructive criticism/write well and they get really offended when someone is straight with them.
Anyway I wanted to thank you for actually taking the time to read my first chapter and give me some feedback. That’s exactly why I’m writing fan fiction at the moment anyway: as practice while I work on my second novel.
I really appreciate it!
47m agoYou’re welcome. If you are concerned about my hecklers, know that they’re all one person. The sockpuppets we know of are listed here, if any of them start harassing you: https://www.fanfiction.net/topic/11834/171837508/1/Dragon-s-Blaze-sockpuppets-and-friends
38m agoGood to know. I checked the list and it seems that all of them who messaged me/left reviews regarding this are on that list.
That’s really unfortunate that this is going on. One of them has already replied to your review acting really out of place and almost seeming personally offended by a review on MY story.
I sent them a private message asking them to stop doing that, at least on my stories. Hopefully they’re respectful enough to listen, but I’m not getting my hopes up.

I know that people hate on you but I read one of your reviews and I just figured out my dumb ass was formatting dialogue incorrectly. Thanks man. You’re the savior the Pokemon community desperately needs, but doesn’t listen to.
