Mad Libs is a game meant for two players. A passage is already predetermined however, adjectives, nouns, verbs, adverbs, and the odd mis. have been purposely left out. Thus one friend will ask another to suggest a noun (as an example), then lulz should ensue when read back.
Oh, I knew this. I meant turning the FFL into a Mad Libs game.

Over 9000 for both of them. Seriously. (I'm just too lazy to compile all of MKD and AEM into two Word files and run a word count.)

It's not really that we (or I) think that there's only one Latios and Latias. It's the fact that the most well-known example of Latias and Latios were either canonically brother and sister or thought to be so. (I honestly can't remember which. Sorry. Whether or not they were twins, admittedly, is an entirely different question beyond that. I just like to think they were because it's neat to think of counterparts like that as twins.)

As I just showed, though, I could do a story about two Latis that aren't related. Would that be okay,
Sure. That'd probably be cuter, actually, than the twincest idea.

I approve of this image. XD

...wrong place - this place is for discussion on fanfiction and other such insanities. =P - I'd check the FAQs or the such in the hacking sections: http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=156 Look around first - probably some advice on that around on stuff like that somewhere there, I suppose. If not, ask there (Or google as well, perhaps?)

Oh, and I am a ninja now. =P But Valentine has a more specific thread as well, so use that for asking, I recommend.

What's all this about giving people random prompts? XD Looks like fun to discuss and all. But I have just recently discovered something. I believe it is called free time, but I fear it is only temporary, so I'll probably use that for other things. Lord knows how long it's been since I've actually done a chapter of my fic. D= And there's that other idea. That's cracky. And partly induced by Astinus.

Even if Buicks are about. =P

What's the current word-count on your active chaptered fics?

Fanfiction.net says 99,927 for my fics - that's including a oneshot and short authors notes here and there as well. Nonetheless... I might pass the 100,000 word-count barrier for my main fic next chapter, or the one after. EDIT: For my main fic alone, it's 94,095 words...

....That's kinda inspiring, and scary at the same time... O_o

Hey, I just thought of something, if and when I get better at writing in Latin and old English (as per my courses, not that I expect this to happen soon), but perhaps I could even try writing in those respective languages for a fic XD (though perhaps I wouldn't be able to post them on the main board, as I believe English is the only accepted language). I think some of you can contend with ye olde English, no? XD

Mind you, reading through the book, and the oldest english is nearly impossible to read properly.

If you could write an entire fic in Latin, that would be so badass it wouldn't even be funny.

Well I do plan to take all 4 courses of it, so if by the end, I can write out proper sentences and such, perhaps I might, though I'd think it would be for my own amusement, as only a couple people might actually know what is being said.

My tattoo is in Latin though.

So... this crackfic... hmmm

EDIT:

Okay I've come down to three potential OT crackfics:

1. Magic School Bus meets Pokemon
2. Hannibal meets Pokemon
3. Oregon Trail meets Pokemon

Ah, Sean Connery jokes. In any case, hey, so long as it's a decently-written script fic, it's still kosher, right?

That and his friends dying of typhoid, and other diseases prevalent in the game. Would it make sense that instead of using bullets, he uses pokeballs to catch Tauruses (sp) then they unknowingly get killed for eating...

Actually now that I think about it, why did Ash catch all those Taurus, in that banned episode? His mother must be stocking up on the beef jerky.

If your character had gone to university, what would be their favourite course, and why?
Shrike, Rayne and Aira actually did go to a Pokemon Academy, which in the world of TFC is sort of a cross between high school and college that kids aspiring to be trainers have the option to attend after primary school. In the Academy, Shrike's favorite course was General Pokemon Studies, a class that offers hands-on learning with Pokemon and how to care for, train, and even battle with them. It should be noted that as Shrike left partway through the course, he didn't receive the full curriculum. Also, he hated his teacher, Professor Jura. His least favorite classes were the gen eds (general education), such as the required math classes. If he had gone to a normal secondary school instead, he probably wouldn't have liked anything except perhaps IT classes.

Aira and Rayne are then pretty much opposites, in that while Aira pretty much liked every aspect of school (especially the internship at the Petalburg Gym she took up) including gen eds, Rayne didn't like a single part of it. Aira considered it uplifting and enjoyed the change from her previous life on the streets, while Rayne considered it oppressive and restricting her time with her Absol, Matariel. (The academies don't allow Pokemon to be kept by the students, however in both Rayne's and Aira's case with Matariel (Absol) and Fury (Houndour) respectively exceptions were made due to the influence of, in Rayne's case, Professor Jura and the then heir to the Dewford Gym, Noah, for Aira)

As for Tashima in TRINITY? Well, he probably wouldn't mind it too much although he'd probably ignore all his classes and just hack into the school's computers and change his grades instead of actually earning them.

What's the current wordcount on your active chaptered fics?
TRINITY - 45629 (including WIP of chapter 5)
TFCv2 - 32458 (up through chapter 5)

TRINITY, namely the Waves sidestory, says hi. :D While there's not much spaceship action in the main story yet (that'll come in around part 2), Waves is completely focused on a soldier of the United States Navy (then called the United States Space Navy. I have since decided that sounds retarded though.) who is transferred to the USS Andromeda, a battlecarrier-class ship with more than a passing resemblance to a Battlestar, as a space superiority fighter pilot (in the Vesper T-83, whose name bears more than a passing resemblance to BSG's Vipers). The climax of the story is this big, giant, fun battle between the Andromeda and her Vespers against three rogue cruisers and their contingent of fighters, followed by the experimental CFS Avalon and her fighter drones.

As for Pokemon, they're present throughout the story as a hatred of the main character Zack, although at the end a Floatzel Vesper pilot does show up. It's not the most Pokemon-focused story ever, but when put in context with the story of TRINITY which is largely about a group of humans trying to cast Pokemon back down the social ladder (humans and Pokemon having become considered equal beings in TRINITY) set against the context of human-Pokemon prejudice and discrimination, it does make more sense. My current plan is to rewrite Waves and integrate it directly into TRINITY, as its events and the characters introduced in it will appear and play a role in TRINITY itself.

And no one bother asking me for a GitS crossover either because TRINITY is already basically one, just without the characters (although the new character Kyle in chapter 5 does resemble Ishikawa to a certain degree, and the new character Ava is also somewhat like Motoko. Zeta can be considered Batou too I guess). Technology-wise, a lot of stuff was inspired by GitS. You have the standardized interface ports which cybernetic individuals can jack into, a form of visual cyberspace diving (in GitS that seemed to be normal while in TRINITY the visuals are reserved solely for the Cybernet and some more advanced devices that will appear in the future), the cybernetics themselves including the ability to integrate weapons directly into one's body (most obvious with Zeta, who has a whole of three separate weapons plus many other things stashed away inside of him. Tashima also has an arm cannon, however it is currently broken), and a general style that I'm aiming for, especially once the story opens up wider and I can introduce the social dynamics and elements I've been shooting for (the above mentioned predjudices and discrimimnation).

One thing that's interested me with the answers to that question is that some people aren't keeping their fic all in the same document. If you don't mind me asking, what's the appeal of doing that? Personally, I'd find it quite inconvenient. o.o

There's a few reasons why I do it:

1. Most of my chapters are quite large. Keeping them in one file means editing chapter seven, for example, would be a task. Never mind opening the thing to begin with, considering my computer tends to lag when I try to do things like open massive documents. Or, in shorter terms, it's easier to open and search.

2. I submit to Fanfiction.net, where each chapter needs to be kept separate due to the way its system works.

3. Keeping every file separate serves as a bookmarker. I have easy access to what material is ready to be posted or reposted, so I can just use the hot keys (namely, CTRL+A) instead of going to the middle of a document, hitting shift, and pressing the down arrow for awhile until I finally get to the end of what I want to repost or post. This helps particularly in that I usually have a good part of the next chapter written by the time I'm ready to post the one before it.

4. Gizamimi Pichu would murder me in my sleep if I sent her fifteen chapters in one Word document to beta every time I finish a chapter, and it wouldn't make too much sense for me to create one massive document and fifteen smaller ones when I can just have the fifteen smaller ones (that I need anyway for FFNet) in one folder and keep everyone happy.

I think what's convenient is you'll be able to locate your chapters faster. I know since sometimes it might take me a while to find the chapter I was working (had NE finished, so yeah). XD Another thing is maybe you might want to do a quick edit of a previous chapter and replace that with the already posted chapter.

Ah, OK. These seem like valid reasons. Since I don't have a BETA, don't mind using Ctrl+F, don't submit to FF.Net, and what's posted and what I've written are usually relatively in sync, it works better for me to keep them all in one document. I was just curious. ^^;

I don't have a beta, or use Ctrl+F, or submit to ff.net, but I still keep my chapters as separate documents. It's easier for me to post my chapters wherever I do submit them (like on LiveJournal) because I just hit Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V, and there's my chapter in three steps.

See, my chapters (depending on the fandom) are long. Like, for one of my Digimon fics, a chapter is around thirty pages typed. It's easier for me to find a particular scene in thirty pages than it is to find a particular scene in eight-four pages (which is how long said fic is when put all together).

I also just like the way my fic's folder looks when I open it up in Windows Explorer, and see each chapter's document. I like the organized look.

Plus, if I want to write a chapter that's farther ahead in the story than what I already have written, then it's just easier for me to have it in a new document instead of trying to figure out where it will fit in one huge document.

Also, if I need to check something that happened in a previous chapter, I don't have to scroll all the way back up. I just open up the old document, which opens automatically in a new window, and can flip back and forth easily to make sure things match up.

That's why I do things my way. Just easier for me.

I keep my chapters in seperate documents on my computer, simply because scrolling through all that text just to find and replace a little error or getting to the bottom of an eighty-pages-plus story is simply less convenient than having to click on something each time you want to access a chapter. Not to mention I do put my stories on FFNet, which is obviously much more difficult to do if you've got a big old document full of fic.

I have dozens of separate text files for single paragraphs, sentences, or even ideas. You have to keep things in their own place for easier reference, since a "mega-document" would take much longer to navigate through and by then you may have forgotten the reason why you were looking for something.

Thirty pages? :O That's nearly a third of the length of my entire fic as it stands. :P I certainly admire your attention span: I don't think I could ever manage to write a chapter that long. ^^;

I don't think anyone should write a chapter that long. God... Really? That's just... So much.

Writing is all about conveying a message and getting a point across. Hemingway got right to the point, and wrote novels that barely scraped the mid-section of other classics. If you can't get to the point in under 15 pages, I have to wonder what you're writing about. (EDIT: By "You", I mean the "general" "you". Not poking at Astinus specifically)

I don't think that's entirely fair, to dismiss long chapters in such a blanket manner. While I myself generally prefer short chapters, long chapters can still be quite effective. :s
