Yes that's an annoying thing in college... But mock baccalaureat is not a simple big exam, and teachers know that we have it, so they could make an effort ! x)
You'll find I know it's difficult those times but you have to persevere ! What would you like to work in?
Anyway, in Pokémon world age doesn't seem to have really importance x) Just seeing that you can become champion at only 10, and destroy a rich, evil and powerful team able to control legendaries pokémon... Normal.
Walker Texas Ranger you mean? That must be a funny story x)
Yes, Leaf is the best anyway (I appreciate May too, because in the manga she's awesome) But you, who like dresses and skirt, don't you like Dawn for example?
However, I don't really see a protagonist guy wearing a tuxedo ... Their casual outfits suit them (it depends on who, Diamand outfit is horrible for example)
Yes I'd like too but it seems that developers feel compelled to make the strangest outfit they can --'
Sadly, that's the norm in college. Your chemistry professor won't care if, say, your calculus teacher is planning a big exam the next day. In fact, they probably wouldn't even know. And right now, I'm working at trying to find work. Which means I'm unemployed, sadly. Which of course means no nice goodies like anime DVD sets or a 3DS...
Romance is even worse when it's two characters who have no connection or worse, are rivals or enemies, or 45 years apart in age. 10 seems to be some random age as well to me, as no self respecting parent would let their kid go off on a trip at that age. Romance is fine as long as it's a side plot and is reasonable, but in most Pokemon stories it isn't either. Then again, my last story isn't so much a Pokemon story as it is an episode of Walker starring Pokemon trainers xD (where most battles are fought using cars, guns, and martial arts.)
Them shorts sure are ugly. I have seen some cute outfits with shorts, but Lisa's definitely more of a traditional dress/skirt type of girl And the only protagonist they got right was Leaf Even the guys... would it kill them to have one with a tuxedo or business suit? And of course I'd like it if they made a girl trainer like Lisa Sadly, it seems too much to ask for a trainer with a sense of style unless you make 'em yourself...
And as a completely unrelated note, I've been distracting myself with old episodes of Sailor Moon xD
Me too because it's really annoying and exhausting >< And even if teachers know that we have mock exams, that doesn't prevent them from giving us as much homework as usually... You're lucky not to have school anymore What do you work in?
It's true, and sometimes these stories are more romance stories than Pokémon stories... So it's useless. Too much romance kill the romance. And I agree with you, 10 years old... It's young ! Moreover, characters like Ash or protagonists don't seem to be just 10, I think developers only choose the age of 10 to appeal to a younger audience. Age in Pokémon doesn't really have importance.
Oh, shorts are great, you can do beautiful outfits with them But White's one is ugly, that's for sure, she could have been totally better dressed. Unfortunately, I have the impression that developers are unable to provide a pretty outfit to their girl protagonists...
Well, hope the exams end soon and you do well on them... as for me, I'm out of school and work so I have way too much free time on my hands xD
Well, in Pokemon stories I've never seen romance done well... it's mostly used as some bizarre way for people to pair up characters who logically should have nothing to do with each other (one pairing comes immediately to mind...). Plus these are usually 10-15 year old trainers... way too young for romance. Then again 10 is way too young to be traveling alone (should at least be 16 so you can actually drive lol) so Pokemon in general just seems to throw age out the window...
She'd look 100 times better if she wore a nice dress instead of those ugly short shorts. Shorts may be comfy and easy to wear but that doesn't mean everyone looks good in them... But yeah, if she wore something cuter and less... revealing... I probably wouldn't mind her. Too bad you can't change outfits in-game...
Yep Someone's gotta bring style and class to the world of Pokemon training. Not to mention lots of money and an almost freaky level of math skills xD
Things are going good for me, and you? And no updates with your story, sorry, but these time we have Mock Baccalauréat Exams, so a lot of work at home, it's so exhausting, and I haven't a lot of time to go on the computer, unfortunately.
Aw you don't like stories if they have a little romance in them? Me it's depends, I appreciate romance but they had better have a really interesting plot in that case.
Yes I think so ! But I have seen White fanarts where she looked really beautiful, however she was wearing another outfit No cap, no pink "ranger shoes"... It was better.
Lisa changes from the other trainer girls, that's for sure She's distinguished !
I'm doing pretty good, but I just seem to not be getting a lot of sleep lately...
It's a shame you don't see too many stories with just a nice girl trainer making her way to the top. In the past I've seen a few that start promising but then introduce some guy and it ends up having some tacked-on romance. Ugh, why are Pokemon stories with guys so much more common? I don't get it, and because of it I hardly have anything to read :/
Well, in any event I think we can agree that White/whoever doesn't look attractive What were they thinking? As for the Prof, I guess they wanted her to appear hip and younger, but there has to be a line drawn...
Yep, but that's what I like about Lisa... she isn't bothered by what's practical, as long as she's dressing in her style and not as something else entirely just for the sake of convenience Lisa likes her flowers and frilly dresses, lol
Yep, except I'm fine with not being over-sensitive, lol. And that's too bad, you don't see too many of those stories n the big sites here anymore (not since mine, if I remember...)
Well, I'm referring to the girl in B/W and how she looks like, for lack of better words, a prostitute. I couldn't stand having to play the game as her and I eventually sold my copy of White. But really, sneakers on the prof? Who thought of that idea? How... unprofessional and un-professor-like. Not to mention a fashion disaster
Yup, and I'm better at driving anyway... at least cars have power seats so I can still drive a big car despite still being short.
Lisa's dress is actually very impractical for Pokemon training in general... as are white stockings which end up getting torn up every other chapter... but Lisa's gotta look her best xD
Actually Lisa is in some sort the person you would have wanted to be, I mean, she's like you but richer and so on And about the stories I'm sorry but unfortunately they aren't in English language at all, so I doubt that you would be able to understand anything XD
What do you mean by "working the streets at night"? Which one of the protagonist girl is concerned for example?
Exactly, and that's funny there is a thread about Prof Juniper where I spoke about that Serisouly, when you look at a picture of her and just hide her feet with your hand she immediately looks better :O
Yes indeed you'd better avoid trying your parents' bikes in this instance x)
And anyway, Lisa's dress is a bit too long to ride a bike I think
Well I read chapter 9 yesterday evening (albeit evening here means afternoon where you live \o/)
Yep, and now we've arrived (in Lisa's home state except on the other end of the state from her hometown) where it's nice and warm(er) lol
Lisa does incorporate a lot of my interests and stuff, but there are differences... she's a lot more emotional and sensitive than I am... and she has a lot more money and nicer cars too And you might have to show me some of these stories
I know... too many of the girls in the latest series just look... bizarre. I don't get it. I also don't understand why your character if you're a girl has to look like she "works the streets at night," so to speak. And as far as professors, skirts and sneakers definitely do NOT mix...
Eh, there's nowhere around that's really safe to ride a bike anyway, even if I had one... and right now there's better things to spend $200 on... my parents have bikes but considering I'm quite a bit shorter, I don't think that's an option, lol
And with Lisa's dress, I don't think she could ride a bike Though I have seen anime fanarts with girls in school uniforms riding bikes, so it might be possible...
That's true But you know 1 year ago I was writting a story too, and guess who were my heroine ? Leaf of course ! But actually it was "me" in the Pokémon World, with Leaf appearence. I knew a lot of girl writers who were writting Pokémon stories with cute girls as main character too.
Indeed Lady trainers in gen 5 have a nice design My favourite Lady trainer design. Skyla is pretty also (even if her outfit is kinda ... special), and we can't say that Elesa isn't elegant (there are awesome fanarts of both girls). But in BW that's all. Sometimes designs are just ridiculous. For example, Lenora ... ' They must be kidding us, what's this hair?
No, I don't think so I don't have balance at all too, but with bike you just have to have confidence in yourself, if you go being sure that you're going to fall, this isn't the good method. I lol'd with your "steel protection" XD
Indeed I rather imagine Lisa in a car than on a bike x)
Great! There's nothing quite enjoyable as being out on the open road, taking in all the sights as you cruise down the highway
Okay, yeah, I do like to read when there are fewer distractions... of course it's really only one story I read nowadays anyway There need to be more Pokemon stories featuring cute girls as main characters
Yeah, don't get me started on the female protagonist... looks like they dragged her off the street. Only trainer design I really liked this generation were the Lady trainers... they were cute xD
I really have poor balance so if I tried riding a bike I'd probably fall and suffer brain damage, lol. I'd much rather have 4,000-5,000 pounds of solid steel surrounding me... for protection. And IIRC, you will never see Lisa ride a bike in my story either... not that she'll be doing much driving either, but she's only 15, lol
Hi, how was your trip?
To tell the truth I haven't read it yet xD To read I prefer to "ensconce myself" (I don't know if it's the right word, anyway I hope you understand what I mean), and with school and so on it's a little difficult, I rather read during the week-end
I totally agree with you, in B/W I was very disappointed by trainers designs. That don't remind me the true Pokémon "atmosphere". Gym leaders design, notably were often strange and that made them not as charming as the former ones.
Oh, really? :O You should try to ride a bike, just once. I know there's better, but that's funny sometimes, and at least you will really know what protagonists feel when they travel across the region on a bike XD
