The Other Pokeauthors, Part 117

“So you finally came. St Elmo’s fire, I shouldn’t have to write to fit your needs alone. In that case you might as well hold someone’s hand as they write.

Imagine it like this, your favorite author is writing in a new style that you don’t like and you complain to him. Should he have to adapt to the views of the few or the views of the many? I used a perfectly normal use of bold for notes. Its much simpler and easier to notice. The underline is then used to start the chapter.

Now enjoy. Maybe. Your just picky.”

The review consisted of the anime and horizontal line paragraphs and nothing else.

As I’ve said to many others you don’t like my story don’t read it it is my story I’ll write it how I want as I want when I want. If I want the characters to die they die if I want them to have kids that what they do as it’s my story not yours

secs ago[As I’ve said to many others you don’t like my story don’t read it]

Cool. Could you help me with that by properly labeling your story as anime fic so I can filter it out and won’t see it at all?

They still haven’t.

St. Elmo’s Fire.

Thanks for reviewing, regardless of content. And thanks for trying to help this time.

I agree with many of your points here, it was just a try. The introduction will definitely be changed when I find another way of writing it, or I might remove it entirely. I will keep the second chapter, though. Based on reviews, I will definitely, at some point or another, fix some obvious factual mistakes.

“Villan” is indeed defined loosely, not exactly meaning a person. More of a nebulous “antagonist”, a force to push against, be this another person or some other problem. Martin Luther King Jr., for example, was fighting racism, which is a concept, not a specific person.

The sections of a story on Fanfiction are called “chapters”. I merely meant that this was the first section, and it was supposed to give an introduction.

The vagueness is intentional, and I intend to keep it that way. The description will be changed to stop hinting what it will be.

Yeah, I don’t really know what I’m talking about here. Hasty generalizations are not the way to go, and I should have put more thought into it. That is a mistake I will not make twice.

Once again, thanks for the criticism. I will use it to further this story and fix the problems within.

Good day :)

First, yes, I will appreciate any criticism given, so please take my honest gratitude.

Second, yes, I’m not a native.

Third, I personally don’t care much with punctuation, since I believe fanfiction matters more on the flow of story, not how it is written. But I’ll take note to learn much more since at the very start, I just don’t care.

And fourth, your last line generally stated that every single fics here are supposed to be canon-based and the characters ought to be the way they are. I understand OOC seems to frustrate some people, but hey, I think everyone has the right to create their own world since they are the writers. ( with few exceptions of course, that too much OOC will surely ruin the character itself )

“hoping to help give people constructive criticism instead of just vague appreciation or flames.”
and then
“This would be better suited to original fiction with your own original gods or wizard characters.”
I see this as an insult. Thanks.

If somehow you miss out to deliver any “criticism” of canon-related thing, I will likely see you as a good guy here, as grammar-constructive reviews are always appreciated from non-native writer like me. But I’m sorry, the whole “constructive criticism” actually is just seen as someone playing god now.

Last but not least, with all due respect, please don’t mind me to block you (*insertsmileemoticonhere). You said you don’t understand why I choose those characters for my story, then I can likely say I don’t understand why you insist keeping these antics. Anyway, it won’t matter much because I’ll be moving to other fandom though. Congrats, you actually succeed one more time

secs ago[Third, I personally don’t care much with punctuation, since I believe fanfiction matters more on the flow of story, not how it is written.]

It does. Grammar is how we understand written language. When you disregard it, you force your readers to puzzle out what you were trying to say, and that’s very inconsiderate. I understand it can be difficult, especially if English is not your native language, but you really do have to learn it.

[And fourth, your last line generally stated that every single fics here are supposed to be canon-based and the characters ought to be the way they are. I understand OOC seems to frustrate some people, but hey, I think everyone has the right to create their own world since they are the writers.]

Yes, they do… if it’s original fiction. Original fiction is not a bad thing and it is not an insult to say your story has the potential to stand on its own. I talk about this more here: https://www.fanfiction.net/topic/11834/165030563/1/

So this should be
[“WHOA.” Dialga rose to her four and spun furiously]

What I mean I could care less of punctuation is that small little details like this one. I mean, honestly, it won’t make much difference when people read it. But yes, I’m being inconsiderate so I apologize. With the additions of semicolons correction ( which Farla had once pointed out ), I think it won’t hurt to learn more of punctuation.

I’m sorry, but we seem to have different view of how fanfiction should be. I read some of your explanation and I do agree for the most, but what fanfiction offers is a different viewers with their level of tolerance. You point out of writing fanfiction doesn’t need to establish the general description, and yeah, that’s what writers want. They think their viewers understand the characters and to some stretch, the places and events. Writing outside the canon supposedly is not right, but there are explorable contents in Pokemon itself, aren’t they? Like, pretending the genders is one of reason Fanfiction is lively of diverse ideas.
( well I’m not going to argue anymore since I know your statement is true )

One thing to say, you did mention about being inconsiderate. To be honest, if you can be a little considerate, I think you can be a great reviewer ( especially on your canon-ideal of course ). By considerate I mean, adding ‘I think’ or ‘I believe’ or so on before stating your view sounds less offending rather than let it be that way.

“I think this would be better suited to original fiction with your own original gods or wizard characters.” sounds better for me.

secs ago[By considerate I mean, adding ‘I think’ or ‘I believe’ or so on before stating your view sounds less offending rather than let it be that way.]

That is already implicit by the fact that it’s a review, i.e., an opinion. You don’t need someone’s permission to decide that they’re wrong.

secs ago…And I realize that was unclear. You don’t need a *reviewer’s* permission to decide that they’re wrong. If you disagree with something I say, that’s fine.

That, of all things, made them block me.

Conflict

Is there a war waging between you, Istwill56, and Dragon’s Blaze? It’s off-putting for new members (like me) of the community.

You can also look at the end of the “Misc Discussion Post” page on the blog Dragon Quill for a more complete explanation.

Essentially, she is the one waging the war, not me. If you find her off-putting, block and ignore her. I don’t fight in reviews.

Hey

Hey, just wondering. Why do people consider you a troll? Is it seriously because of you just leaving mean reviews because if that’s the case then that’s not what I consider a troll?
secs agoYes.
10h agoStrange, I always felt there would be more to it. I would imagine it would take much more the be one of the hated people on the site.
10h agoOh, I doubt I’m the most hated person on the site. It’s only one fandom, and most of my hatedom is actually one person wearing many hats. Most people just block me and move on with their lives.
10h ago[Oh, I doubt I’m the most hated person on the site.]

Okay, yeah. I may exaggerate it their pal.

[most of my hatedom is actually one person wearing many hats]

I think I know who you’re talking about. Dragon Blaze? In my experience. We’ve been well acquaintanced. Hell, the reason why I wanted to see more about this was that of her. I wanted to take further inspection to see who is in the wrong.

10h agoThe full saga is recorded at the end of the “Misc Discussion Page” post of the blog Dragon Quill if you’d like to know more.
10h agoThank you. I will see into more of this soon. Hope you the best of luck.
9h agoI’ve looked into the misc discussion and frequently, both sides seem to be in the wrong. However, the criticism you gave at The Human and the Hybrid seemed to be fine. I’m still debating which side is in the right. To me, both sides seem skeptical.

This person went on to say we were the real trolls and were just as bad if not worse than the person harassing an unrelated bystander for having cancer, then told me to go die in a review, so screw them.

The weirdo who uses reviews to talk to people apparently truly does not understand how to use PMs, because they responded to me with a review as well:

Just for your information, I never found Pokemon under the anime tab. Trust me I looked. Besides, it isn’t pruely anime either. There are elements from the video games. The movies aren’t fully anime either.

They did at least figure out the block feature after this, so hopefully that’ll be the end of that.

This doesn’t make sense! Some people aren’t able to understand the POV changed from the context, even if it’s obvious, it helps to say. And i’ve seen tons of storys that change the POV in the middle, it’s fine! And the authors notes are bold so you can tell it’s the authors note! It’s not Incoherent, it’s easy to understand, none of this matters at all!

This was for a story I reviewed last year, and they’re not even the author. Not sure what’s up with this.

    Yeah, that drama with Charmeleon was crazy. From a complete 180 degrees flip in stance on the matter to reverting back to being an asshole to outright admitting that the reason they did not want to see our side of things was because they were a coward who didn’t want people to possibly dunk on their story, I did not know quite what to expect.

    … And while I totally get that stories are important to you, that level of protectiveness isn’t something I’d typically expect about a story with only 1k words and two chapters, one of which is just an announcement.

      Or he could’ve just blocked them and not had them dunk on his story? He was just an immature kid looking to see how far he could push you, I’m afraid. 

      No u’s still a meme? That dude’s fallen behind the times (Coming from someone who still says yeet, I know but ah well).

      EDIT: Turns out no u’s still a thing. I must still be out of touch with modern memes.

    People pick the weirdest things to find insulting sometimes…

      They probably interpreted it as “This story isn’t good enough for Pokémon so don’t drag down the franchise with your story.” Which is a stupid way to interpret it.
