    *Steps out of his closet o’ doom, which is empty for once.* Use for what? :D

    Well, I just went ahead and posted TRINITY, as well as tossing a mention of it into that announcement thread where I found that I can bypass the URL filter the same way I can bypass the swear censor. Don’t kill me! :O The title went through fine here, guess you don’t have the caps filtering on like Serebii does.

    Hey, I never said I’m not guarded. I mean, even in ATP Dimi’s always saying stuff like “you need to open up more!” and such. It’s getting annoying <_<

    The thing is, I don’t think that Buizel did know that BMG isn't as accepting. I don’t even know if he had been there before he posted that thread. All he knew about it was that it was another Pokémon forum and smaller than Serebii. I guess he assumed that it’d be left alone there just like on Serebii. Of course, the thing with the club on Serebii is that it came after the original ATP thread and that has certainly had its share of flaming as well, albeit not as bad as at Bulbagarden. Also, clubs on Serebii tend to be left alone unless it’s by a “rival” club or something. Not so on Bulbagarden...

    I don’t really think there’s much hope for Dimi. I mean, even back during the whole Kamen situation, he fervently defended him while the rest of us, even Kveran who forced herself to follow the normal rules and wait until he had three clear cut warnings, utterly loathed and hated him. I mean, the guy was a total jerk, but Dimi was always like “stop being so mean to him; maybe if you stop being mean he’ll get better”. Yeah, I find it kind of hard to think that a guy who was completely grossed out by all interests but his own and thought that said “gross” interests shouldn’t exist and that the people who like them are weird and some sort of lesser being than him could get better if we just stopped being mean.

    Seriously, he’s a hippy.

    Eh, Sneas is only an admin on the forums. Most of this drama is centering around the chat, where Dimi and I are the admins. Technically I have seniority since after Kveran left she made me the sole admin, and I only made Dimi one later. I cannot fathom to this day why I did so, and now that I’m seeing how badly he handles these situations...

    Hey, I’m all for a good laugh. In fact, finding humor in almost everything is something I love. ...It gives me a darker sense of humor, but I still also like sarcastic and witty and even some random humor. :O

    *Imagines Rayne yelling a stream of swears as she fights a bunch of people. Naked.* TFC: Uncensored and Unrated! :D

    Thank you! *Takes the Buizel and stuffs it in his closet o’ doom until he can think of a good use for it.*

    Dammit, though, I was too busy today with other stuff to post TRINITY here... I’ll do it tomorrow, kay?

    Sure, we may not know each other that well, but we can relate and that’s what matters to me!

    Not liking people is always a valid reason to ban in my book! :D Unfortunately, unless you’re the sole person in power, banning people on a whim like that could lead to problems... If you are, though... It would be fun! :O

    The difficult way is the best way, as what worth does the result have if it was acquired so easily? As for my profile... I guess it doesn’t look quite as lonely, but the loneliness of my soul is eternal! ...Or at least it’ll last until whenever I break free of my shell and open up more to other people online <_<

    Yeah, some people you just have to wonder “is this for real? Could they seriously have thought that this would be accepted? I mean, come on, no sane person could think that another sane person would allow this.” I guess the problem is, well, the world has its fair share of not-so-sane people...


    Hmm, we’ve had one major problem with another board since nsider, and a ton of stuff between members. Said other board would be none other than Bulbagarden. See, Buizel (not sure if you know him or not, but...he’s not the brightest kid and can be rather annoying at times...) decided that it’d be an oh-so-smart idea to open a Pokephiliac club over there like the one on Serebii. I of course have known that would be a terrible idea for a long time, however I was gone when it all started. Well, let’s just say that club still exists today in their Hall of Shame a few months after it was opened (and promptly moved there within a few minutes) and I’m pretty sure every single member of the forum there has seen it and posted in it flaming us. Tch, I sent Kasumi like three PMs talking reasonably and explaining the situation and how even I never wanted that thread opened, yet she didn’t so much as reply to any of them. Most people on ATP now hate that forum with a passion that rivals the Jewish hating Nazis.

    Other than that, it’s all pretty much been member/member stuff. The same Buizel has pretty much been an eternal depression since FyreFlareon scolded him after that whole business (he said something along the lines that by persistently replying to the people in the thread he was embarrassing not only himself but all of ATP) and has recently become a sort of attention whore (although he always pretty much was one). Take the other day when he was going all “woe is me! I’m so sad and angry and depressed and angsty! All hear my sorrowful moaning and watch as I cry pitiful tears of grief!” And then LucarioGirl (previously known as GardevoirGirl) pretty much voiced what everyone but Dimitar thinks at this point “Oh, come on. None of us here care anymore and all you’re doing is trying to draw attention to yourself. Go drown in your sorrow elsewhere and let us talk.” Cruel words, but when you realize that he’s been ansty and emo for months now, is hard to care for him when he seems to ignore everything people say to him. So that made him even worse and he started claiming that everyone hates him (much the same way he had claimed that everyone ignores him about a month ago). That claim actually isn’t far from the truth right now, exception being Dimi who is a hippy and loves everyone. So he claims he’s gotten his act together and is acting reasonably normal but overly perverted as usual. Problem being that he completely ignored everything people said to him about why we’re annoyed with him, a big factor in which is how overly perverted he is.

    ...Honestly, I’d probably have banned him the other day during his whole episode if I knew that it wouldn’t provoke some kind of God’s Fury from Dimi. He is utterly blind and rather than seeing the problems Buizel has, he instead points out “oh, but you’re all acting so mean to him and being hypocritical!” Yeah, hello, but we’re mean to him because he’s basically been mean to us. It’s not like us being mean us unfounded or anything, he’s brought this on himself completely.

    Anyways...I could probably go on about how Buizel should be banned and how Dimi needs to stop trying to side with everyone and start actually seeing that people can do wrong without the fault able to be attributed to someone else... Oh, I could also go on about how Dimi views the internet and ATP as serious business as well, such as when I jokingly told Kate, a relatively close friend of mine who I joke with all the time, that she sucks and he apparently gave me my second warning. I don’t even remember getting the first one, nor did I know that admins even could be warned. See, I’ve joked with Kate like that and told her she sucks tons of times in the past. Of course I’ve also reassured her plenty of times that she does not in fact suck and that the sucking is a lie. He insists though that it hurts her despite the fact that she very clearly now knows that I am not serious, which she herself has said!

    ~~END OF RANT!~~

    THAT’S IT! No more mention of ATP here <_< It’s already too long :O

    Yeah, I’m really looking to pick up some new readers with a reposting of TFC on both Serebii and here. With Serebii there’s no guarantee that I’d get any more readers than who I already have (and in fact I’d risk losing some of those, since it’d be a while before I got back to anything truly new, even if I intend to add new scenes in old chapters), but it’s simply a fact that more people will look at a story that only has a few chapter than one that has 27. Posting here of course will expose me to a completely different audience (even if some people do go to Serebii too), and broadening your potential audience is always good! I wouldn’t even need much effort to cross post here seeing as both forums use the same system and there’d be no need to make sure all formatting applies properly.

    Oh, quick question before I do post anything here: I know that swearing is of course censored and all, but are you allowed to bypass the censor in fics here as you can on Serebii? I’ve been inconsistent in my bypassing over there but I intend to get more vigilant in assuring that no stars appear in my chapters anymore <_< Nothing in the rules here that I can see about allowing bypassing, but then again there’s nothing in the rules over there either.

    "Now, this is just a slight irk for me, but it seems weird that Diamond, a ten-year-old, won't use contractions in his thoughts/speech. Unless this is part of his character, it makes him sound more like a real person if his speech is more real for who he is. It's just something to think about when writing characters. Think of how they would speak."

    Diamond's not ten, lol. They're all 15 to 16 years old, as far as the main characters.

    Anyway, thanks for the review Astinus!

    Gasp! PC, I thought you promised your hand to me! ;;;;_;;;;

    Yep. Sorry. Your OT is doomed to forever be a Pokemon trainer. No matter what. Unless they decide to be a coordinator.

    Exactly. =D Or those tiny, tiny monkeys that fit into the palm of your hand when they're fully grown.

    Unless it's Eevee and Pikachu. Then it's every FFNet author's wet dream.

    Read it and commented. XD Nice.

    I still need to read most of Ender's side of the story, I'll probably get on it after school lets out. I read Ender's Game first, but after I read Ender's Shadow I just had to finish that series first. I really like Bean's series because of the militaristic and political aspects.

    You sound kind of shocked at finding another OSC fan, which seems weird to me because over half of the people at my school have read Ender's Game. XD

    Either that, or it hates freaking dial-up. >_O

    Exactly! See, the entire trainer thing is actually a conspiracy. In order to force people to tame Pokemon so Pokemon don't use those supernatural abilities and apparently above-animal intelligence to kick the crap out of the human race, the government "encourages" new trainers to stay in a career centered around Pokemon with BACON. It's why no OT ever gives up training Pokemon to take up a more practical job!

    As for your plans to take over the world, I recommend monkeys. They literally work for peanuts, and no one except PETA really objects when you decide to dispose of one.

    Also, best thread title ever. The actual thread's about collecting Pokemon plushies, which just isn't as exciting.

    Pictures, actually. :3 Both are... well, you'll see. I apologize in advance. X3 *prepares to PM them, site willing*

    Rants... hoo boy, is there even such a thing as a fandom without 'em? X3

    I definitely need to read that... XD Heck, I still need to read what you did for last month's prompt, for that matter. I've only had very limited success in catching up with everything on my to-read list... XD;

    Heh, you didn’t think I’d actually say something and then never ever come back? Especially today (well, tonight or something seeing as it’s past midnight now...) since I’m in a good.

    That seems awfully...awkward of them. Guess they don’t have the balls to attack you here where you’re in power. :D And I completely forgot about your email, but knowing me I would have probably considered it to be too easy to look through my emails for it and come here anyways.

    I kind of know how you feel about becoming a mod and all from back when I was active in a Zoids forum called Zoids Evolution. Through a rather strange and coincidental turn of events the webmaster turned to my sister’s friend Kyle for hosting, he became an admin, and then he made me and my sister admins for reasons I can’t really remember other than that we needed more admins and we were/are his friends. Eventually he then left, I became head admin, and then I eventually left too... ZE seems to be cursed with head admins leaving >_< I really miss those days, though. Sure, there was drama, but there was also a lot of fun. Admining ATP isn’t near as fun as admining ZE was X_x

    Anyways, nostalgia and reminiscing aside, Dimi did that notice thing on ATP not because of flamers or whatnot but because of ever annoying spambots. I’m not sure where he got the troll part from, but then again I don’t think he actually looked over the list of 36 validating members that had accumulated in two weeks and so just assumed what was on there was a mix of robots and bad people. That’s part of the problem with InvisionFree, it’s very easy to find yourself in some spambot database... If we didn’t have account authorization, we’d be swimming in them no doubt X_x

    If I post a fanfic here anytime soon it’ll probably more likely be my new fic, TRINITY, rather than TFC. I’m considering a revision/rewrite of sorts for TFC after I finish part 4 in about two chapters or so, and if I do do that, I may post it here then. If not, we’ll have to see because 27+ chapters to catch up on is a ton (plus I don’t like the first three or so chapters that much since they just seem lacking compared to the rest, not to mention the various things I’ve retconned and are thus inconsistent...). TRINITY is only in the prologue right now though, so it could very easily be posted here. It’s nothing like TFC or, well, any other Pokémon story I’ve ever seen (my own classification for it is “cyberpunk-styled sci-fi inspired by Ghost in the Shell”), so I would like to get it out to more places than just Serebii. Unfortunately going on a small vacation almost right after I posted it kind of hampered my plans a little...

    Heh, usually on birthdays other people give you something, but this birthday in a couple days I just may have some stuff to give to Serebii (namely the now almost three months in waiting TFC chap 27) and maybe here, who knows. I was thinking of something like that last year, but it didn’t work out. Of course this time I actually have some stuff ready... We'll see.

    EDIT: Dammit, that's long. Hell, it was even longer before but I cut some stuff out. It's hard for me to type concisely >_<
