Hey ! Things are going well and you? Ok will read your newer chap when I could I don't know when because I'm a little busy, with school which is coming very soon !
Good plans It must have been great ! When was your actual birthday btw? Oo I hope it isn't to late for me to wish it to you !
There's no anime store here (I mean, with many mangas) You're lucky.
I thought the musicals would be great tbh. It seemed interesting ! I expected a beautiful show, with a good animation and so on, I think they could have made a better thing with it, really. Did you like the contests in RSE?
I guess you can find game this on the internet can't you? I already saw a Misty dress-up game once, I'm sure they made it with almost every other girls. And since Leaf's very pretty, they couldn't miss her
Every Pokémon writers started with such a story I guess :/ Only some stories distance themselves from the other ones, when the scenario is much more original, but they're rare. For what I could see, yours did it pretty well, there was obviously the main quest of the badges quest, but it was different.
Thanks, I'll keep the link :D As I told you earlier, I won't read it right now, but when I can.
Really? Oo I thought it would be a long story, I didn't expect only five chapters. But, I don't mean it's a bad things, shorter stories always have a better scenario than long ones, since they mainly focuses on it.
Great :D How was the car show?

Hi, how are things going?
Just wanted to give you an update: I just posted chapter 4 of my story so take a look when you get a chance! Thanks

Heading to Rochester, New York, which is the closest "large" city to us. I plan on hitting the Mall at Greece Ridge Center, then dinner at Westgate Family Restaurant, then spend the night at Quality Inn Rochester Airport, then the next day head out to Anchor Sports Bar at Marketplace Mall for my actual birthday lunch/dinner meal thingy xD
I might visit the local anime store (Hammergirl Anime) while up there, too, but I was just there a couple weeks ago and pretty much bought anything I saw that I wanted there. Their anime DVD's and manga volumes are pretty overpriced for the most part, and their figurines are way expensive, lol
Awesome I already have in mind what my next signature will be, and it's not gonna be a cute one like this one is xD The one after, however, will be very cute, and in fact you've seen the picture that I'm planning on using already
Yeah, I know. The gameplay of a Pokemon game should remain on the gaming handheld/console, not spread to your computer. The musicals were pretty lame (and confusing; I tried them once and had no clue what to do, if I even needed to do anything besides sit back and watch), but at least you did them in the game itself.
The Pokemon game I really want to see though, would be a "Leaf Fashion Dress-Up" spinoff game. Something like that could easily become my favorite title in the franchise Just picture dressing her up in all sorts of cute outfits... it would be totally epic xD
In my story, I had to juggle the badges, fighting the bad guys, and deveolping Lisa's bond with her Pokemon (which I HATED, it felt like I was forcing her to be overly emotional) because that was the "in" thing to do at the time. That all definitely dragged the process on for far longer than I wanted it to. I definitely prefer the freedom that comes with Lisa being experienced and established. I get to ditch all the mushy emotional stuff and get to doing what Lisa does best... beating the living daylights out of bad guys xD
Yep, it didn't receive much attention, but it's still here. It's called A Coordinated Investigation, so enjoy! That one actually focuses more on the investigation into the crime in question. You might like that one even better
My current one is going to be five chapters, plus the intro and conclusion, so it's even shorter and it's past the halfway point now. Next chapter is planned for either this weekend or sometime next week - I'll message you when I post it
Well, I just found out that we're going to a local festival on Saturday. I'm not expecting too much seeing as it is just a small town event, but they will have a classic car show, which should be interesting. I could always use new ideas for some of Lisa's "impulse buys," if you will And any excuse to get out of the house is always good xD

Where would you go for thie birthday getaway?
No, we can't say mine is cute indeed x) The character on it is a Yandere, so she can be cute sometimes too.
Yes, Pokémon games don't deserve an online part such like this :/
Particularly if you don't want to totally aim your story on badges, it takes too much time to make your trainer earn the badges and develop the plot at the same time.
I didn't know you had 3 stories of Lisa How many chapters will the current one have?
Yes, I could read that one too !
August 19th, 2012 11:05 AMElite Overlord LeSabre™
All right, that's good As for me, not much, but I am planning ahead for a little birthday getaway, just for me
Thanks! Yep, that's the one xD I really like that picture, too Yours is pretty good too... can't really say "cute" because of all the blood spatter lol
Okay, if you do, let me know what you think
Well, as you've seen with my current story, I like to mix things up and give characters personalities that aren't exactly what you'd expect... in that same first story, Giovanni's also completely reformed I still say that either Giovanni or Evice from Colosseum are my favorite crime bosses, at least in the Pokemon world.
Oh, those games were great Shame you couldn't play as a girl in either of them, but they were still awesome. Same with me with the dream world... tried it once, wondered what the heck the point was, and never went back. Really, if the goal is to immerse you in the game world, then making you turn off the game and go online is kinda counter-productive.
Yeah, that's the truth... my first story was the "badge journey" thing, and while I don't regret writing it, it's not something I would do over again. The very nature of it means that it drags on for way too long, and I don't want to write something with 55 chapters again lol. With Lisa already done all that, I can make much shorter, much more fun stories about her various adventures as a secret agent. It also let me have Lisa do the one thing she wanted to do most while on her journey - drive.
Now, after this story's finished, you might be interested in the one I did before it... it's also a short (7 or 8 chapter) story where Lisa's involved in solving a mystery... so it fits in with your mystery anime and it isn't super long. Plus it has Lisa in a bulletproof contest dress

Hey :D Yes don't worry everything's alright ! What about you?
I love your new signature So it's a girl from the show you spoke me about ! She's very cute.
I've got a new kit too, what do you think of it?
I may take a look on it It exactly the kind of stuff you like lol Me I've just watched Asogare Otome x Amnesia. Awesome. It's a mystery anime again, and will definitely be one of my favourite. The chara design and the voices are great, the story too... Too bad it's that short.
Archie being voice of reason must be pretty strange I imagine him as a totally crazy guys, a hot head that doesn't think a lot and prefer act. While Maxie is a cool, calm and thoughtful guy. In the manga, they both die >< That's so sad. My two favourite boss...
Never played Poké XD/Colosseum :/ And I used the Dream World just once, it was just useless...
Yes that's one thing for sure x)
You've gained experience in writting stories And I guess it's more interesting to write a story about a trainer that has already all their team completed, already travelled and so on, you can imagine a scenario more original than the basic "let's earn all the 8 badges!"
August 15th, 2012 6:56 AMElite Overlord LeSabre™
Hey Sorry, I get a little worried when I don't hear back from folks for a few days. Anyway are things still going well with you?
Oh yeah, I just rolled out a new signature... how do you like it?
August 11th, 2012 1:09 PMElite Overlord LeSabre™
Oh, okay Yep, she does do an awesome job with her art I'm thinking of having her do two or more three pictures for me once she's ready to draw more. I think she captured all the details of Lisa's outfit really well.
I told you to have the tissues ready On a completely different type of anime, if you like my current story with its action/crime elements, one series I recommend checking out is the Gunsmith Cats OVA. It's an older series, but the girls in it definitely do their fair share of damage with guns, cars, and high explosives alike
Their plans were completely off the wall... funny you should mention stories, since they both appear in my original story but [SPOILER!] are completely opposite of the anime - in mine Archie's the voice of reason while Maxie's the one who's gone off the deep end But I'm not a big fan of water routes and I actually contemplated letting Maxie win just so he could get rid of some of them xD
The closest thing to that were the Colo/XD games, which, because of the darker plot (and because of Miror B., my favorite male Pokemon character) rank as among my favorites. I just don't know who came up with the ideas of musicals though... and I wasn't fond of the dream world, something that's not even in the game that you have to go online for.
I do actually, two of them. Problem is, one of them lives four hours away and the other lives 13 hours away, and I haven't seen either of them in years (and I'd like to). Then there's the fact that we don't do anything but talk - which I don't mind, except I really don't have that much to say with people who are 40-50 years older than me - and most of whom I don't know anyway. I doubt I can talk anime with them. At least when my dad's relatives come I can talk cars with my uncle xD
Yeah, it's been rough, but now things are cooling off - with nasty storms, go figure. As for me, I'm doing pretty well, especially with my new Lisa pictures
Okay, I'll keep you posted. And I suppose that's fine as well - I actually think my newer stories are a lot better than my old one, even if it did establish Lisa as a character. Besides, this one establishes Lisa and Leaf as butt-kicking BFFs

Hi Don't worry everythings okay, I'm just pretty busy. Wow, by EndlessSummer, it's one of my favourite deviantart Pokémon artist This drawing's beautiful, Lisa's very cute.
I finished Clannad this morning... :/ The last episodes were... Disheartening. My tissue box's empty now. It's one of the saddest animes for sure.
But these bad guys had great personnalities Well, I guess I like them that much because of fanfics involving them I read when I was writting too.
Yes it would be awesome Alas, Pokémon is also aimed at kids so we'll have to do with Musicals and things like that. They really should make a game for us, older fans, where it's not roses all the way.
Don't you have cousins of your age for example? :/ Family reunion are good, but I guess it may be boring if everyone's way older than you.
Here it's very hot to. I want to go to the beach again, it's so hot that it's difficult to go out without burning in the next 5 minuts. How are things going for you now?
Ok tell me when you post it And no, I think that I'm just gonna read your newest story, otherwise I'd have too many things to read.
August 5th, 2012 1:02 PMElite Overlord LeSabre™
No problem Always like seeing more pics of Lisa!
Well, I don't want to spoil anything, but yeah, be ready for the end of it...
Yeah it would make a lot more sense than having to fight the old champion again because somehow they magically took the title back... but we're talking about the same people who pretend that FR/LG never had a girl character, so I'm not expecting these changes to happen either. I mean, I'd like to become the champion and stay the champion, but that's apparently too hard a request.
Didn't enjoy it that much... just the typical bad guys with some weird plot that involves some random legendary that they end up not being able to control. They were kind of a low point for Pokemon games.
I'd like to see a plot that has more "normal" criminal elements instead of some "take over/change the world" ones. And they could have minigames like inspecting tax records and collecting evidence instead of useless stuff like the musicals and dream world xD
Anyway, apparently more relatives are coming up by our area - a family reunion on my mom's side, them my dad's brother a few days later. But why can't we have any relatives visit who are around my age? All of them are old :/
Still hot and boring around here with no air conditioning and nothing at all to do... I just wonder when I can finally get out of this situation...
BTW, the next chapter of my new story could be delayed a bit... have you been able to read any more of the "original" Lisa story?
August 5th, 2012 6:45 AMMentalii
Yes I heard it will be sad xD Can't wait to see why, I'm curious.
Your idea is great, it'd be awesome if we could do that ! But I fear it'll never happen... Thanks GameFreak
It wasn't boring at all :O Didn't you like the plot ?
A team that scams people... Why not ! It'd change from chat we're used to
August 3rd, 2012 10:08 AMElite Overlord LeSabre™
Taht drawing looks pretty good Thanks! Hopefully you'll get your scanner!
Yeah. Oh, BTW, get out your tissues as you get toward the end of the second season... you'll need them xD Yeah, first season, IIRC dealt with several different character arcs while the second just dealt with the main relationship.
I actually brainstormed the idea that every time you went back to the Elite Four you faced a rotating selection of "challengers," trainers (perhaps taken from Victory Road) who want to take your title away so you have to beat them to defend it. That idea not only cements you as Champion, but it also means that a new challenge always awaits you at the end instead of the same old team.
I hope so... I don't need another Poekmon game that falls short of standards to further question my faith in the series.
That region somehow achieved the feat of being both boring and bizarre at the same time. I just can't picture myself struggling through it again. But hey, I'm used to having weird opinions on Pokemon related stuff... I like Leaf, after all, and I want to see a Pokemon game where the evil team's plot involves a Ponzi scheme fraud where they're scamming people xD
August 3rd, 2012 6:42 AMMentalii
Ok, I'll send you my drawing by PM The quality is awful, I took the photo with my phone but... It's the best I can do so far... And my birthday is 31st August.
Yes actually it's getting better in the 2nd season, really. Sunohara is awesome x) And some 1st season episodes looked like fillers, not in that one.
Oh ok But at the same time... How would you like things to be otherwise? At least you can challenge the champion over and over that way, it's practical to level up.
Don't worry I'm sure it'll live up your expectations !
You're crazy, RSE remakes are games that I want the most Hoenn was a great region ! And I loved the plot, with two evil teams and so on. The towns were brilliant.
July 31st, 2012 4:50 PMElite Overlord LeSabre™
Hey, actually I was wondering... would you want to photograph and show me that picture of Lisa you made now... and just scan it again if you happen to get a scanner on your birthday (when is your birthday, I'd like to leave you birthday wishes on that day)?
