The only thing remotely close to a mistake is most likely a simple typo or a variant on the idiom that I don't know...
I was going for an "X or no X" construction here, but upon reflection "fire type" is being used as an adjective and not a noun, so you are correct, it should be "not."

Not to sound like I'm ranting, but, seriously, what's with all authors here turning to write all brooding, dark, "the world is a mess and your hopes only specks" fics here? By the [SWC] time, most of the entries had this sad, dark tone, with people and Pokémon dying all around with a rate so alarming that I got seriously worried for some time.
Well, I tend to write morbid things no matter what, but more of them do seem to show up around contest time. No way for me to prove it, but I sometimes feel it's because people think that sad or angsty stories are necessarily more deep/impactful and therefore the kind most likely to be well-received by the judges.

Anyway, I'm glad that you enjoyed the story despite the fact that it's morbid. And you're right, the charmander was a human. Thank you so much for the lovely review... and the mousse (I'll take that over cookies any day!).

Heh, glad you found the story true to your experience with escort missions. Good to know I'm not the only one who found them insufferably annoying.

Don't know whether I would really call this a parody, but I'm happy you enjoyed it all the same. Thanks for the review!
