There have been a lot of fics lately that would be classified under journey-fics, I think. I personally believe that a little horror would be nice around here. Maybe pokemon could mutate somehow, that would be good.

Maybe a little horror. A lot of fics these days have romance type of feeling

What's wrong with romance?
xD

I am not much for horror - but that's just my opinion.
Of course, if you haven't already, and you want horror, you could always read "Maggots of Society" by Burnt Flower.
That's the only horror one I know of though.

Yeah, there are quite a few journey fics.

I know I see a lot of Romance, but what about a more passionate version(if you get what I mean). You are twelve so I kind of have to doubt it... Anyway, I see very few of those.

I was gonna say something else, but now I can't remember...

Oh well... ^ ^

Wow, more younger kids understand "things."

Have you found any fics like that here?

August 5th, 2008, 04:53 PM
nope not really. Event_Collectorx's was descriptive but no nothing like that

There is a chance that he copied Baa Baa, who I still think is a better version of it.

The most "sensual" I have seen of all here was Jax Malcom's "Selling Everything."
There isn't any "passion" shown in between people, but it still had a strange mastered sensuality to it.

I agree. But some people copy others because they like the thing that they did. For instance, maybe Event_Collectorx copied Baa Baa was because he liked her story or he was copying it for his own pleasure

i like cheese mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Way to be off topic.

That being said, I would like to see more horror type fics. Burnt Flower's fic got me interested in that kind of writing, and I would be interested if another horror story popped up.

Horror? If you look around, you will find, that's for sure. Burnt Flower is an obvious choice though. Also the author Kiyohime comes to mind. :)

Me, I much prefer the comedy stories, as well as the part-parody as well. Although I've done one tragedy before, and a dark-ish non-Pokemon (or fanfiction of any kind for that matter) story as well.

Sci-fi has been neglected badly. I aim to change that, along with two other people. Unfortunately, none of us have updated our sci-fi fics in a goodly amount of time...

I also haven't seen a pokemon western. Ever. That could be interesting.

that would be scary...

I would like to see more fics that have a pokemon's POV. Not OT, a journey; maybe, perhaps a horror pokemon POV, ooh, what about a comedy pokemon POV

I have to agree. A pokemon western sounds too strange. All the people AND Pokemon parading around in cowboy hats and vests or dresses. The whole concept seems strange.

If someone could manage to pull that off without being too tacky, then great :)

EDIT: Although, If someone could make it into a Western Comedy - that wouldn't be so bad.


How would you go about making this Horror Pokemon POV or Comedy Pokemon POV?
What would the storyline be without a Journey?

Although I think making a Romance Pokemon POV is going a little overboard.
People like to read about the Romance of People, not Pokemon. Mainly because some angles of the Romance of People can't be changed into the angles of Pokemon Romance - it would just be too awkward.

Again, Not discouraging anyone who wants to try - if you can pull it off - that is a feat in itself.

I was thinking of making my next fic a pokemon POV, uh.. i guess it could be like the life of a pokemon that was captured and the trainer never left home, perhaps the pokemon has a rude since of humor, and trouble just seems to follow the trainer, but then you would get a never ending story(or until one of them dies of old age.), and i don't want.

I have the general idea, i was wanting to title my next fic "Saving Grace", and with this as a challenge, i think it will be have a pokemon POV, although it may turn out to be more of a journey fic, but i promise that gym badges will not be the main motivation behind the journey.

A challenge is a good way to test your writing skills; see if you can accomplish it.
You seem to have that basic idea down.
Good Luck ^ ^

What about fantasy, with mages, warriors, and Pokemon together? Or Pokemon in the typical fantasy classes doing a dungeon exploration?

Pokemon is a Fantasy!! txteclipse's "Eon Chronicles" has Pokemon and humans fighting together, if that is what your looking for.

I had an idea about that once(the mages, warriors, Pokemon thing). Of course I need to finish my story first because the characters in it are the characters for the type of fantasy story you want.

Thanks for making me remember that - I had all but forgotten it.

As kcander said, my "Eon Chronicles" is basically a fantasy novel set in the pokemon universe, but I haven't seen your second idea implemented yet. You're thinking almost a Final Fantasy kind of deal, right? Where each pokemon is a different class (warrior, dragoon, arcanist, etc.) and they go off adventuring? I'd actually love to see that, but my attentions are currently divided by too many things to write it myself.

I just may have to do the second idea for a fantasy writing contest (and post the entry here too...)

Would such an idea also work as an RP?

Maybe a little horror. A lot of fics these days have romance type of feeling

I consider "romance" to be more passionately written than the standard classification of "romance". I'd like to see more passion, as romance is a strong word and doesn't really correspond with all the fluff stories I have seen.

I know I see a lot of Romance, but what about a more passionate version(if you get what I mean). You are twelve so I kind of have to doubt it... Anyway, I see very few of those.


Exactly. That's what I'd like to see.

I'd also love to see more parodies. We need a good laugh after reading all these horror stories you people crave.

Genres I'd like to see more of? I, admittedly, wouldn't mind seeing a more Fantasy-ish side of pokémon every now and then. And by that I mean High Fantasy. A Western would be quite amusing. Might have to try that out sometime, as it's my goal to write at least one story in every genre.

Have you read my sample yet? Of my romance writing?
It still may not be to the degree that you are looking for, but if you read it and tell me that, at least we'll be on the same page. :)

High Fantasy? What is that?

If you ever try to make a Pokemon Western - I'll read it :)

One would think that a pokemon western would probably end up with a lot of ground pokemon, but would be rather amusing. The idea of pokemon written with elements from a final fantasy game is currently one of my most wanted things ever now. Want to know a secret? This thread is really just an idea thread for me, and others, I guess.

Like Lord of the Rings. That's High Fantasy, I think. Or the E.C. (shameless plug...again...)

OH! That is the kind of genre of the Fantasy story I want to write eventually, except I don't have different races like in Middle Earth - just human and Pokemon...

Like My Name Is Fuega? Kinda? [/blatant plug]

Well, I know it's not a genre, but I'd like to see more Pokemon POV fics too. Especially if the POV reveals something more animalistic about wild Pokemon, something that you couldn't really see with a human POV. Like what I'm doing with My-[/BLATANT PLUG]

Okay, okay, I'll stop. Jeez.

Well, I'm partial to blends of adventure and humor, myself. One of my favorite fics EVER (http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3657069/1/Vision_of_Darkness_The_Sinnoh_League) does an absolutely astounding job of blending plot and epic battles with side-splitting humor more than makes up for the fact that it is very much a novelization of Diamond/Pearl. I myself write mainly adventure stories, and even the non-humor ones get a joke or two stuffed into them *coughFuegacough* [/PLUGGING. NAO.]
