And so we finish! More of the people and pokemon and humans in a number of different ways.
NaRe 2020 Day 22
More wonky grammar than usual. Someone being nice to a magikarp, though!
NaRe 2020 Day 21
A story about Natural Harmony, a tropius.
NaRe 2020 Day 20
More fics brushing up against the “people and pokemon” issue, but all in a different way than usual. Run-on sentences long enough to strangle. A story about a hacked pokemon who still functions like their own person and a story that’s supposedly about pokemon being real where the pokemon are mindless balls of obedience.
NaRe 2020 Day 19
A story about someone who’s getting strongarmed into not being a trainer, a story about someone kicked out of home for wanting to be a trainer, gardevoir continue to be a magnet for people’s shitty thoughts on gender, a lot of wonky phrasing.
NaRe Day 18
A Mewtwo fic that seems to be taking the side of “people and pokemon” as well as better written but more creepy porn.
NaRe 2020 Day 17
Two fics with possibly unreliable pokemon narrators about how awesome trainers are, porn, low effort writing.
NaRe 2020 Day 16
More trainer stuff today, including what’s supposed to be a badass Ash fic that’s actually just his dad doing everything for him. Also yet another fic where pokemon are humans to an absurd degree and something I think is kpop. (more…)
NaRe 2020 Day 14
A surprising lack of people waking up in the morning. There’s some uncomfortable childishness tied to gore and porn, some quality grimdark, and some apparently inadvertent grimdark abuse. (more…)
NaRe 2020 Day 10
A fic that does the “scary monster pokemon that must die” but without being obviously terrible, sexism sexism sexism, a particularly ludicrous retreading of the anime opening now with magic rocks, and talking pokemon continue to be nameless but super into being named by you. (more…)
NaRe 2020 Day 9
The usual, right up until it isn’t.
NaRe 2020 Day 8
An oldschool edgy badass sue that hints at a more interesting oldschool edgy badass sue story, a pair of pokemon vs human fics that make slightly more sense than usual but still have issues, yet another fic that starts interesting only to cuts to people sitting around being boring, and cults!
NaRe 2020 Day 7
Vlogging story that’s quite nice except for how the character has every reason not do so, a reminder of the failings of sex ed, yet more older trainers, and a return to my old favorite of people being completely unprepared for the journey part of pokemon journeys. (Snow: that literally does mean it’s freezing cold people, put on a damn jacket.)
NaRe 2020 Day 6
Somebody else is going around saying similar things. Not sure why now in particular.
