Pokereviews Day 24 (53)

So much progress made!

Pokeauthors Part 22

Consider this: "Go, pikachu, I choose you!" vs "Go, Pikachu, I choose you!"
Here, even though the animal is a pikachu (if you were to not treat it as a generic name), this specific pikachu's name is "Pikachu." It is the same as naming a dog "Dog."

Pokereviews Day 23 (48)

Finally making progress catching up.

Pokeauthors Part 21

Well, I hope you respond, 'cause I'd love a civil conversation, and I did my best to write this out like an understanding human being.
And don't you even think of remarking on my grammar/spelling/whatever! (I might've put some on purpose, to bait you, hehe.)

Harvest Moon 3D: The Lost Valley

Pokemon was the first franchise I followed, but Harvest Moon is a close second. I've been with it since before I can remember. It's a bit of the end of an era for Harvest Moon fans, as games under that name won't actually be Harvest Moon games anymore, and this first demonstration of that is a complete disaster.

Pokereviews Day 22 (25)

Variety continues. Mostly it's bad variety, but still, better than being just boring.

Pokeauthors Part 20

"Because I have a habit of capitalizing words I shouldn't, outside of typing and in. I will keep doing it, because I don't have the mental capacity to fix it myself."

Pokereviews Day 21 (33)

There's a story today where N sets off a civil war and ends up ruling half of Unova and they're sending out ambassadors to the other regions and yet it appears to have nothing to do with pokemon rights.

Pokeauthors Part 19

"If you have nothing nice to say about what I'm doing, don't say anything at all."

Pokereviews Day 19

Ladystuck fic and review:


This is just perfect, thank you! I love the range of her in this, how she's different with different people and times - nice to most of her people, smiling at Jack's suffering (what sort of person never washes formal clothes?!), more terse to Terezi and extremely remote to the Felt, but then willing to elaborate during the conversation and ultimately reconsider how she wants to be.

The shy artist turns out to be one of Jack Noir’s aides.

Poor baby, probably gets threatened every time she does her job! (Or else she was told to stop doing that job and that's where she got all her sculpting time from.) I hope he's nice to her given she's made a stature he could leer at.

and the Black Queen finds Jack Noir, once again itching at his collar. He offers her the champagne, which she exchanges for a fresh glass.

Also, did he manage to refrain from spitting in it?

And now, back to the pokegrind.

Hate Plus

You should really just look up the log files online somewhere.

Pokereviews Day 18 (18)

I got a wonderful Ladystuck fic that will have to get a proper review tomorrow because I am super tired and it deserves better.

Pokefandom does not, so let's go.

Pokeauthors Part 17

"In a one-shot that is focused solely on bringing out emotion, is cliché that bad? 

The real question: was it written well or not? Did I express emotion well enough or not? Was it something one might enjoy reading or not? What did you like or not like?"

Peace of Mind

It's unusual for me to not have formed a concrete opinion by the time I've finished a book/game/whatever, but Peace of Mind actually grew on me as in retrospect, which was odd. At first I wasn't sure whether to peg it as a real rec or not, but the more I thought about it the more I thought it was a worthwhile thing to spread around.
