Mostly long complainy ones today. Two Pokemon, one Age of Five trilogy(?), one Hunger Games.
Starts off extraordinarily well, doesn’t maintain it.
Just a couple.
A ton of SYOC fic went dead all at once. Annoying, but fitting for the one-year anniversary of this. One author chose to start a more successful Hunger Games SYOC instead, though, so we get to have something a little different today.
I return to Undertale fandom for Halloween! On FFN this time. To my disappointment, the fandom has almost completely devolved into poorly-explained AU fic since I last checked in. Underfell isn’t the only one anymore.
To jump fandoms for a moment…
Quite a strange collection this time, including platonic? tickling where Ash considers Kukui his father, a story that was 90% worldbuilding setup by someone who didn’t actually seem to have any interest in the world, a scientist who didn’t know how to science, and a character from our world who tells Oak exactly that.
A lot of stuff centered around Ash and the early season, with even the one that’s about Ash starting in Kalos and the inevitable betrayal-Ash fic both involved emphasis on how many seasons of adventures he’s already had. Possibly the modern accessibility of shows means that the newest fans coming in are now watching from the start again.
Also, yet another quirky character specializing in something else entirely and who clearly had no interest in pokemon battling somehow changing their mind and becoming a great trainer.
