Someone actually apologizes today after realizing Blaze’s account of me was wildly inaccurate.
Review on Summer Storm
11 AugThe Meta Guy
Hey, sorry I didn’t respond before now (been a bit busy with life, writing, etc.), but I wanted to send a quick thank you for leaving your thoughts on Summer Storm a while back. You actually raised a good point about some of the wording choices (as well as the hyphen thing; that’s something I probably should have fixed beforehand. I don’t know if supports em-dashes or not, but this warrants investigation), and I definitely plan on working some of your feedback into future chapters. Although I won’t pretend I agree with everything you said (for instance, the point about capitalizing Pokemon names–I’d always seen them capitalized, but that’s probably just a stylistic discrepancy; I won’t argue one way or the other), I do appreciate you taking the time to give me some advice. I know I have room for improvement, so I always appreciate it when I can find ways to improve my craft.
Also, I’m not sure who this “lstwill” person is, or why they felt it necessary to post a “review of the review,” so to speak, but I guess they were trying to stick up for me? No clue what that’s about.
Either way, thanks again for leaving your thoughts, and I’m glad you enjoyed what you read! I’m going to try to keep updates coming out semi-regularly as best I can, if you’re interested in following along.
Actually, it’s not.

I take characters from all Pokémon verses. As shown in my last story especially. As will probably be revealed in this one, so no. It’s not set in the anime verse. It’s set cross-verse. Hence the reason it’s all.

Just enjoy the story
secs agoI can’t enjoy stories with major grammatical errors. They throw me out of the story.
8h agoThen don’t read it. You don’t need to leave a paragraph of errors
secs agoI can’t know I won’t like something until I read it.
[You don’t need to leave a paragraph of errors]
You do realize all these arguments go both ways, right? You don’t need to respond to a review you don’t like, you don’t need to tell reviewers what they’re allowed to say, and you don’t need to post on a public website at all if you don’t want people saying things about your story. You have many options here, but complaining about other people complaining about grammar is not a productive one.
Also got this out of the blue:
why dont you actually watch a few first episodes of the anime (like me ) instead of saying that you dont know what its about if you’re a pokemon fan surely you would want to familiarize yourself with it
secs agoWhy don’t you play The Reconstruction so you can read my best fics? If you take such a keen interest in me surely you would want to familiarize yourself with them.

I appreciate you taking time to critique! As far as I am aware Pokemon is capitalized always and the names are too. I think you’re probably right about the short sentences but this is a repost of something I wrote a while ago so it’s bound to be worse than I anticipated. I’ll be on the lookout for things in the future! :)
As far as thoughts in single quotes as long as you got it I think it’s probably fine.
With why I used Pokemon? Well, it’s not really fair to read the first chapter and judge my use of characters by that. ;)
Well, maybe it is, but I love Pokemon and giving the characters my own interpretation or personalities. Don’t worry there will be plenty of Pokemon fights etc.
I appreciate the concern and thank you!
Pokemaniac will remember this.
First of all, it’s screwed up that you show other peoples PM’s. They’re call ‘Personal Messages’ for a reason. And I won’t forget what you said on that review for Pokemon Sun Adventure. To quote The FieryCharmeleon, “You reviewed the smallest things and then went to say ‘put a bare minimum of effort into making your story comprehensible’.” So, when exactly did your ego take over? Also, that response to your review of Pokemon Lunar was just to tell you how stupid you are. Well, the people that read this on Dragon Quill will probably agree that you’re just an egomaniac jerk.
secs agoYou really think it’s less screwed up to let you defend yourself in public against the thing I said in public? You’d rather my review just sit there on your story forever, for everyone to see, with no way for you to refute it?
10h agoIt gives a good example of why your just an idiot. At this point, I know you’re just an egomaniac. Stop trying so hard to just avoid the fact that I’m mostly right. Also, sometimes you’re strait up WRONG with your facts… Okay, once. When you say Pokemon names aren’t capitalized. Copy and pasting complaints together to make one stupid review.
10h agoCopy and pasting complaints together to make one stupid review doesn’t make you cool. I’m an idiot, forgot to complete that, but that doesn’t change that you suck. I’ve accepted that I’m kinda stupid and forget things.
secs ago[At this point, I know you’re just an egomaniac.]
Says the person completely losing their mind over the fact one (1) internet stranger thought their hobby project wasn’t the coolest thing ever one time. Get over yourself.
6h agoThere are multiple I know that think you’re an egomaniac. And your “hobby” is just an excuse to be a jerk. You may not have a big hatedom, but I’m definitly part of it. Also, I’m not stupid, you don’t have to say one (1). I am kind of an egomaniac, but so are you. “Get over yourself” is a fair point about me, I can accept that. HinoNami is the only time I’ve agreed with you, but everything else you do is just annoying. I’m not believing everything Dragon’s Blaze says, I’m believing things from my own evidence. I’ve seen your reviews, and some of the annoyed people. Again, your hatedom isn’t big, that’s true, but it exists. I know I am sounding rudder than I should be, and I’m slightly sorry for that, but get a better hobby, or learn to be nice. Your excuse “it’s hard to think of nice things” is bullcrap. You have 4 people in your group.
secs ago[There are multiple I know that think you’re an egomaniac.]
And I’m sure I can find multiple people who think you’re worse than me. You can find people who will believe just about anything. People are diverse like that. But it doesn’t actually mean anything with a sample size this small. Accept that your dislike of me is your personal view and not objective fact. I’d be much more respectful of you if you actually owned up to that instead of hiding behind logical fallacies to make demands of me.
[Your excuse “it’s hard to think of nice things” is bullcrap.]
Where have I ever said this? I say nice things all the time. For someone who claims to be part of my “hatedom”, you sure don’t seem to have much of a clue what I’m about.
49m agoI’ve seen many of your reviews, and not one has had a nice thing. I’ve seen a review where you’ve said that, but I can’t remember what the story was called. I will admit that it is mostly a personal opinion, I have seen a few more of your haters. But, I know alot of people (including Dragons Blaze) that lie, saying nobody likes you. I’ve actually seen a few people that like you, and they’re lying because they were mad at you. I am a little more of a jerk than I should be, I’m a little sorry for that, but I didn’t go to say “no one loves you.” That’s kinda bull. I’ve seen just a few of your recent reviews that say some nice things. I do kind of apologize, but that doesn’t make us friends. I mean, it is kind of typical for someone on the internet to release all their anger on someone that totally doesn’t deserve it. You are kind of a jerk, though (from everything I’ve seen from you, except a few reviews).
secs agoOkay wait, I’m confused here. You started this message saying you’ve never seen a nice review from me, then you end saying you have. Can you elaborate?
9m agoOkay, yeah, that was kinda confusing. Okay, so across the, I think 2 days we’ve had this conversation I’ve seen some reviews from you that were nice. When I started this, I had only seen bad ones. Again, you didn’t deserve as much hate as I gave you, but AGAIN, we aren’t friends. But we aren’t rivals or something. I use to see you as a way worse person than you are, all because Dragon’s Blaze made you seem like an absolutely awful person.
secs ago[but AGAIN, we aren’t friends]
Just to be clear, that’s absolutely fine.
4m agoYeah, I’m fine with the sorta thing that’s like, you randomly saw them and other people say he’s awful, and because your (I’m. Just wanna make sure you know this is my perspective) an idiot, you just assume “oh yeah, he sucks.” You aren’t the nicest person, but really, no one’s perfect. When I first heard of you, you were shown as a horrible person. Your review for Pokemon Sun Adventure isn’t one of your good reviews, but overall, this actually helped me realize you aren’t as bad as I thought. Well, sorry for flipping out at you. You didn’t deserve that much hate.
