    No worries! And no, I like it there. >:[

    I can tell when you mention it, yes. =P I was a bit too because Australia was melting a couple days back. And had a few hundred bushfires too.

    Thanks for the reply and clearing everything up! I kind of have the same issue with getting ideas after I've already written something as well.

    I personally like a pretty large variety of fics. I honestly prefer manga fics the best because the characters in the manga are my favorite. I also tend to stay away from fics that are like....Ash harems. I honestly don't like Ash all that much, so I prefer to read away from him in general.

    I've enjoyed rewrites of the canon storylines (for instance, somebody rewriting the RSE game storyline with their own touches or something).
    AU fics tend to be some of my favorites because they have so much possibility and there are so many ideas to explore. It's interesting seeing what kinds of changes people would make to the anime, the manga, or the game if they had the choice.

    I'm a little more hesitant about all-OC stories (although creating OCs can be fun) because I don't have any kind of perspective on the characters prior to reading and it makes judging the story itself more difficult. I don't have anything against it, really. Some can be really well done and I even like attempting to write them myself, but for reviewing purposes, it is a little bit more of a challenge. Not to mention a majority of OCs kinda turn Mary Sue-ish.

    As for writing, I plan on doing AU, maybe a rewrite or two, and maybe a OC-ish story....kinda. IT's really more what comes to mind though.

    I miss you too! D: *HUGS*

    I'm doing good. Been busy with real life stuff and distracted with other fandoms (Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire one of my new ones, haha). Getting back to playing Pokemon games, started Black 2 a couple days ago. Have Oshawott, Rilou, and Sewaddle on my team at the moment, lol. You doing good too?

    Thanks a lot! I'd love to learn about the fanfic community here. I'm a little unsure about how it works here. I started off on and this is obviously different than ff.

    If you wouldn't mind, I'd like to know a little more about you. For starters, do you post work on the FF&W board? If so, what kinds of writing do you do?

    What other boards do you like to wander into?

    What's your favorite Pokemon?

    Which Pokemon universe is your favorite? (anime, game, manga)

    Which region is your favorite?

    Okay well...I suppose it's better to focus more on what I signed up for.

    Is the writing section a popular section on PC?

    Do people who start writing tend to stick with their projects here?

    Under the Fanfiction archive, it says finished works go there. Is there a place for works-in-progress?

    Hope my questions aren't too overwhelming or impulsive! If I'm getting on your nerves, just let me know!

    Thanks again for taking me under your wing~

    Hey buddy, how're you doing today? Will there be another fic reviewing contest anytime soon?

    Oh! *fans self in a fluster* Why, Astinus, I had no idea~

    In all seriousness, are my reviews that nice? They're just me rambling on to myself about stylistic opportunities and old movies, to be honest, and they take me so long that I can rarely work up the stamina to do them... I've started doing them again now because I feel guilty about not having done even a single one during the Reviewing challenge.

    But I intend to carry on this year as I've started, which means more reviewing, so if you're going to write something I'll definitely stop by and comment on it. Whatever gets you writing, I guess; a storyless author is a sad sight indeed, and I'm always happy to see it counteracted.

    If you have the time, I was wondering if you look at this since nobody reviewed it yet.

    Oh, but have you seen my others stories though? I didn't say that you had to review, but I was wondering.

    Yeah, I was watching that but now I'm watching Breaking Bad. Have you ever seen that show? Bryan Cranston stars in it and he's one of my favorite actors of all time!
