Thank you, this was very informative. As for the part about not capitalizing pokemon, Microsoft Word autocorrects it, making it capital. I would love to get a beta reader, I just didn’t know how before. Thank you for this. You are quite the intelligent person.

Alola, St. Elmo’s Fire!

To start off with, I don’t give a piece of Kartana for criticism such as this! But, I should explain why I do these certain things that cause you to flinch, so that you stay off my case (or keep on the lookout for hungry Guzzlords, if you can’t handle it! :) )

1. Just fixed the category stuff.2. In all of the official Pokemon stuff, the word ‘Pokemon’ and the names of Pokemon, such as ‘Dhelmise’ or ‘Nihilego’ are capitalized, same with Trainer. Same with positions such as Pokemon Doctor, Professor, Master, et cetera.

3. The reason I do such things with dialogue is to clearly show that the sentence that the character is saying is over. Also, because I am about to convey something else about the character, or an action, or something around them.

4. The Pokemon Team updates are not Author’s Notes. I rarely do Author’s Notes, ’cause I don’t like them. They are part of the story. Think of it as…sort of how in the game when you catch a Pokemon, it shows up on your Pokedex list. Something like that.

Anyways, hope that clears it up!

Best Wishes,

Mason Cypress Andreas Satoshi Oury

Please read my reviews all the way to the end. If you have any concerns, don’t send them to me, send them to this thread: http://www.fanfiction.net/topic/11834/55376155/1/Capitalization-Thread

[The reason I do such things with dialogue is to clearly show that the sentence that the character is saying is over.]

If there is a speech tag after the dialogue, the sentence is not over when the person finishes speaking; to format it otherwise is to make the speech tag a sentence fragment. As a general rule of thumb, the narration should still make grammatical sense if the quotes are removed. [Hello. She said.] is a sentence fragment. [Hello, she said] makes sense.

[They are part of the story.]

But they are not part of the narration, which is the story as it’s currently being told. There are many published stories that do similar things to this. They place them in appendices on separate pages or sections, not on the same page without even a break symbol to show they’re separate from what’s currently happening.

Hello, thanks for your correction.I’ll take note of your advise, but it’s something I will not correct. In any way did this reply offend you, I sincerely apologize beforehand. I don’t understand my mistake nor do I actually identify it. I am a teenager undergoing schooling, the methods of writing portrayed in my fanfiction, or rather, my grammar, is taught by the school. Therefore, I deny correcting anything in this sentence.To answer your ‘what does this have to do with Pokemon? ‘, the question itself is very offensive. I am not sure if you are against amourshipping, please understand that this is a fanfiction and might seem OOC because it is an AU. If you’d like to know more about “this”, I suggest you watch Pokemon XY & XYZ.

Are you taking a creative writing course? If not, then no, you are not being taught how to write fiction. That is a niche area that is not taught outside of specialized courses.

[I don’t understand my mistake nor do I actually identify it.]

I quoted the section with the mistake. Pay attention:

[“Soda and Scotch for the angel here, ” he jutted his thumb at her direction]

You used the correct format for a speaking verb such as “he said” here. However, because you instead used the non-speaking verb “he jutted”, the dialogue has to end with a period, and the narration is its own sentence. As a general rule of thumb, you should be able to remove the quotes and still have the sentence make sense. [Soda and Scotch for the angel here, he jutted his thumb at her direction] is a comma splice. [Soda and Scotch for the angel here. He jutted his thumb at her direction] makes sense.

[this is a fanfiction and might seem OOC because it is an AU]

I am familiar with the anime. You were not writing about the anime characters. You were writing about OCs who had the same names as the anime characters.

“Alternate universe” isn’t a carte blanche to do whatever you want. Past a certain point, if your fic has more in common with a general genre than the fandom, it becomes original fiction inspired by the fandom rather than the reverse. You’d be better off publishing this as original fiction on Archive of Our Own or Fictionpress, which are designed for original fiction.

2h agook.
thanks.
i get that you’re trying to point out my mistakes.
sorry for tainting the perfections of fanfictions.

Pokemon authors attacking fics from other fandoms will never not be hilarious. They must have used up their slots for Pearl.
