    You just had them address her with her name? You missed out on an opportunity to live vicariously through your character living vicariously through an alter ego? Maybe it's just my peculiar brand of crazy, but I can't even conceive of the mindset that would allow someone to pass up a chance to create a meta-narrative like that.

    Ah, so that Youngster sets up a random shop each time? I see. I've still not completed my first run - my free time has been all taken up with art recently, one way or another - and so haven't restarted my Join Avenue. Actually, I've been spending more time wondering where exactly the space to build Join Avenue came from than actually playing it. I mean, there was no space between Route 4 and Nimbasa before. Now, suddenly, there's several hundred metres of prime real estate. Where did it come from? I can only assume that there's some kind of Pokémon move (similar to Trick Room or Wonder Room) in effect over the area, stretching and distorting space. There's probably an army of slave Gothitelle chained under the pavement, warping what is in actuality a tiny little hut into a colossal shopping centre. Man. No wonder that guy wanted to get me to run it for him. He can claim total ignorance of all the highly illegal tamperings with reality that've been going on, not to mention the unethical treatment of Pokémon.

    Oh, and I believe Janus is pronounced similarly to Janice, but with an 'uh' instead of an 'ih'. It's Latin, so there's not really any scope for alternate pronunciations.

    Really? Getting lost doesn't really bother me... I used to care about it, but now, as long as I have someone to talk to, I don't really mind. If I get lost on my own, it's a little more inconvenient, but that almost never happens. For some reason, I've become a lot more relaxed about... everything... in recent months, and tend to regard all journeys into the unknown as potentially highly exciting adventures. Getting lost is, if anything, a bonus mission.

    As for eels... I've never had them, but I've never encountered any species of fish - or, in fact, edible sea-dwelling animal - that I haven't been able to eat before. I like trying new things; I'm the sort of person that would probably kill themselves fairly quickly in the jungle by eating a luscious-looking and highly toxic fruit. Hell, the other week I ate something that was so far outside my experience that I couldn't even tell what part of the plant it was. I don't even know what that tasted like. The flavour was so far removed from anything I'd ever eaten before that I couldn't even tell if I liked it or not.

    Ah... My dreams, my beautiful dreams, all shattered... I think you know how I was imagining the seats being arranged. If not, think the spaceship from 2001: A Space Odyssey.

    Ah, Join Avenue. It is so addictive, and I don't even know why. I mean, it's not like I derive any sort of pleasure from being there - other than the fact that I've ordered everyone there to greet me with 'Ave!' and refer to me as 'Mr. Bond' - but I can't stay away from the place.

    Actually, there is one thing I know about Join Avenue. You know that Youngster who comes in at the start and sets up a Raffle stall? He says 'Pit-pat' at the end of his dialogue. Which means that to me, he says 'Pit-pat, Mr. Bond.' Which sounds to me like something a Bond villain would say before he lowers 007 into a pit of Ravening Shark Grubs or whatever more realistic animal the director has decided to plump for. Which means that I spend far, far too long talking to that kid, just to hear him say that and to imagine that Sorghum the Pokémon Trainer is actually James Bond. Which is, now that I think about it, an interesting piece of meta-fantasy: I pretend to be Sorghum the Trainer who pretends to be James Bond.

    Which makes far too many 'which' statements to chain together like that.

    As for walking around... well, my best friend and I both possess a remarkable capacity to get lost, which means that unless we bring someone else along with us, we usually end up walking for a long, long time before we get to our destination. So, what with us recently having started going to a lot more places than before, we've both been getting lost with monotonous regularity. Which means we end up feeling rather like I imagine elvers must do after making it back from the Sargasso.

    Damn. Looks like I've started on the 'which' statements again... I'd better stop before I get carried away.

    Yeah, who'd have thought it? Still, I'm getting used to it; spending hours on end walking across London has the effect of making me more glad every day to see a bus stop or Tube station.

    I haven't got to... wherever you are... yet, in Black 2. My suddenly-a-hell-of-a-lot-busier-than-it-used-to-be lifestyle means that I only reached Victory Road this afternoon - which, given that Pokémon games have generally taken me less than a week to digest in the past, is probably some kind of record for me.

    Also, the thought of seats perpendicular to each other is just... amazing. At least, it is the way I'm imagining it. Which, granted, probably isn't how the seats are actually arranged, but still. I mean, my way probably requires some kind of gravity generator; perhaps the carriage needs to be spinning on its axis to generate some kind of pseudo-gravity via centrifugal force...

    I'd better shut up. I think I'm about to outline a plan for a spaceship.

    Yes, I like riding on trains, too. The longest one I've been on was three or four hours, which went halfway across the country, and I quite liked it. The main problem I've been having recently is not that the train rides are long, but that they were delayed or even cancelled altogether, which necessitates a tedious amount of reorganisation on my part if I want to get to where I'm going anytime on the same day. It seems to be over now - along with the horrendous mess the London Underground was in at the weekend, thank God - and I expect my train of thought will come through any minute now.

    Actually, trains are an excellent place for doing three things: writing, reading and playing Pokémon games. Recently, I've been alternating between writing chunks of my stories, reading Pnin and playing Black 2 on my daily commute, and it's been rather lovely.

    Although I have to say, trains don't always have a lot of legroom. It depends on the seating arrangements, and how many people are on board; I've been on terribly crowded trains before. Oh, and if you can't get a seat and have to stand for half an hour because old people keep getting on the train and you feel guilty about taking seats away from them when they so obviously need them more than you.... Yeah. Trains aren't always that great.

    But they're mostly good, I suppose.

    Still waiting on that train of thought. South West Train services are all over the place this weekend; buses replace trains between Wimbledon and Clapham Junction and between Putney and Feltham. And God help you if you want to travel from Datchet to London Waterloo; you're going to be sitting on that train for a long, long time.

    I think my train of thought is probably delayed due to a signalling fault at Barnes. That seems to be the cause of all this trouble.

    Oh dear. I sense another digression coming along.

    And the higher you go, the worse it gets.

    Wohoo. Seems like you're on a roll!

    Yeah, it's definitally a plus. Having people, specially your parents, support your hobbies is always extra motivation to keep it up and to develop your skills.
    Oh, I definitally agree with the "aesthetic level". What "bothers" me the most is that some people just don't fit the character they cosplay as. I want cosplayers to give of that vibe that I'm actually looking at a character and not someone who dresses up as them (even if their anatomy isn't quite like the character). I'm very picky about details, so I want everything to be correct.

    I felt like reading the Pokéspe manga again and read all the way through the DPP arc. Not my favourite one, but it was a nice read. :3
    I love how in the Pokéspe manga the Pokémon world actually develops as well. It's not limited to the towns you travel through with boring NPCs, but those towns get some character as well.

    Yeah, I've seen it before sometime. It's an awesome photo, though, and I'm always happy when it and I cross paths once more.

    I think it's probably time I left this flight of fancy alone now. Cannibalism isn't funny. Well, OK, it is, but that's beside the point. The point is... actually, I don't know what the point is.

    Hm. It seems stringing a sentence together is more work than I thought it was. Perhaps I should wait until a coherent train of thought actually enters my head.

    Sorry about the late reply, I was away for a week and then kind of got side tracked due to the university starting again.

    I'm not going to stop you. |D

    I had great friends in middle school, and they accepted me for what I am, even went along with it. But some people thought it was funny and hilarious. So yeah. I'm much better of now.

    I think it's still her hobby, but she does a great job at what she does. Now I'm asuming that having a dad in the cosplay industry is always a plus since support is needed to some level.
    That's what the underlying message is. But I still think that cosplaying means becoming that character to some level, not just dressing up as them. Sometimes it just doesn't work in my eyes. That's also the reason why I'm very picky with faving cosplay pictures on deviantArt (or any fanart).

    True. The Pokémon Special manga is pretty good. It has a decent story line and uses the Pokémon world to tell a story which is somewhat more mature than the anime.

    I know. I prefer the Lecter method when it comes to eating humans: small parts, fried, with a nice Chianti and some fava beans. You'll never catch me ingesting a bone.

    Actually, I believe the obstruction was some kind of limb - a testament to why you should always chew your food. Especially if you're eating whole humans. There's no conspiracy here, only a tragedy doomed to be repeated time and time again. When will people learn?

    Yes, that's one of the major advantages of death. As for trying to catch Shamu - I'm told it's the other way around. Killer whales can practically fit lions whole into their mouths, and Shamu can't quite resist the temptation to try and swallow the so-called King of the Beasts.

    Wild cats really aren't that averse to water. Tigers swim frequently, for instance, and while lions don't go in for it as much, all are perfectly capable of swimming. Some lions have to cross rivers and deltas to get to their destinations, and don't really mind all that much.

    As for the cougar, I think he's dead now. Complications arising from an impacted bowel. His friends told him to go to a vet, but he wouldn't have it; he didn't want his status as an illegal immigrant to be discovered. That, and he was the kind of person that doesn't go to doctors until it's really far too late.

    They sent his remains back to Canada in a woollen coffin. I have no idea why.

    That sounds good~! I've been looking into that little bit and there is a lot of potential there. Though they just made a pokemon game about it, which down-right sucks. I think in that Arceus movie they got into it too. They used to call pokemon 'magical creatures', not pokemon.

    I love that. Anything in the past and future is fair game. Lots of creativity there.

    I'm looking into a future setting for my next project, probably a squel to my not so good ranger fic. Can I hit the restart button, again? Ugh, I think I should just abandon the whole thing. Writing chapter by chapter isn't working. I need to write the whole thing before I post. Cause then I start to contradict myself. Then sh*t starts getting confusing.

    For instance, I'm regretting starting my plot in Antarctica. You'd be dead in a few hours if you got lost there! And the Japanese names. Not a good idea either, this ain't Japan. I just can't satisfy myself, no matter how hard I try. Ha ha

    F.A.B means fabulous, perhaps. I like the sound of that ideology! Somtimes though, when one reaches for the stars they fall down, hard. Like me. x) No worries I will pick myself up from this predicament I'm in.

    Actually I've been doing the exact opposite of you. I've been writing and looking into potenital chapters all while in school in the library and at home when I'm supposed to be reading a few chapters from my texts. Strange how all summer long I only got like couple chapters out and now I'm having a...err...brainblast. xD It's interfering, but I don't mind. In fact I've been writing all evening. I didn't even get to read anything. And I'm exhuasted.

    Btw, I've always wondered, what exactly is Marcelo dying from? Are you going to go into it? If you are, don't tell me, I must read it... >_<

    Yay! Many questions in one post.

    What is your next project going to be about? What do you have in mind? IR curious.

    Ah, he doesn't teach personally. He works through a medium - a cougar living in Hackney who can channel his spirit. I did once ask the cougar why he was living in Hackney, when his species aren't really known for living in either cities or indeed Britain, but he didn't answer. Strange guy. I think he had some visa problems; he always used to be pretty evasive about his legal right to stay in the country. That, and the fact that I'm pretty sure that UK visas aren't usually written in crayon on brown paper.

    I did once ask Tanner what it was like being dead, and he told me that he was enjoying it. Apparently there's a section of the afterlife reserved for former professional showbiz animals; he spends a lot of time hanging out with Jumbo and doing tequila poppers with one of the cats who played Salem in Sabrina the Teenage Witch.

    Looking back on it, I realise now that Tanner wasn't exactly the lion I'd thought he was, but I suppose that's showbiz for you.

    lol, it's just a parody of F.A.B. Sorry, I'm werid like that. :( I like the sound of being a pharamacist, though. Still in my postion, those graduate degree jobs are a bit unrealistic. I'll chase it, if I get the chance.

    So, how's your fan-fiction coming along?
