    note: The Fanfiction of the Week has been replaced by the Fanfiction of the Month

    Fanfiction of the Week

    Requirements and Information
    Contributions by Tetsuya-san

    Qualifications:- Properly written fanfics. This includes grammar, punctuation, etc. Description and sticking to story standards works.
    - Length. A story qualifies if it has more than one chapter, or 5 pages (as justified by Microsoft Word).

    How do I get my story to be fanfiction of the week?
    Your fanfiction must be chosen by the moderator of the fanfiction forum if the moderator finds it appealing and standing out with the other fanfictions. They must be properly written and must be more than one chapter (one shots are an exception). Stereotypical fanfictions for example, if parts aren't made properly, usually have very little chances.

    Where does a story go right or wrong?
    Usually, good stories fit in with basic story requirements. If a story seems so outstanding, that a mod would really love it, then it works, and it could get Fanfiction of the Week. You can build onto your writing skills by reading the "Basic Pokémon Writing FAQ". It helps.


    How are fanfictions chosen?
    The moderators of this forum are good fanfiction writers themselves, so they know what's a good story or not. The moderators can either share their opinion on a story then put it through if they agree on it, or let one do it themselves. The selection of fanfics is kept to a standard.

          I wish any story I wrote was good enough to even consider being fan-fic of the week. All I can do is...Pray

              So there's a fanfiction of the week, huh? Neat! I have a question. Let's say your fic was extremely long, so no one bothered to read it, yet it was quite excellently done and legitimate enough to be the fic of the week. What do you do then? oO;;; If only the moderator sees it though, will it still matter? ;

                People like me and Frostweaver read them. Check the Fanfiction Lounge sometimes. And I know which ones are great fanfics and the ones that aren't...

                Sadly, my stories have short chapters as I know from experience from bombed stories that overwhelmed ppl with the length. Mine sucks. Mine isn't creative or long but it'll get longer...

                Aww Dark Pikachu! =O You can certainly try to make an improvement! Think, try and add more details to certain main events that occured in your story. You have to make an effort to make it long if that is what you wish, and for creative support, consider using the plot you have with many added twists that makes the fic more interesting than before. Imagination too! :3

                *hugs and hands DP a tissue*

                Ah DP, if you put in effort, I am quite SURE there WILL be an improvement. (and what's DoMT again?) I know you have plenty of good skill as a writer if you try focusing on what your story is going to be, while adding stuff along the way. And I am CERTAIN that I am not soothing you because you think you're a crybaby (you're not), I'm merely trying to help, if that isn't working...

                And ty for the compliment! Just remember to try and really put effort in your story, skill or not. It shows whether or not you worked hard on it.

                ^___^ But it is working. Thanks. Sometimes I just get really teary. I think it may be because I'm a Pikaform. Don't ask what it is. You'll all think I'm a crazy fusioner. If that's the word (fusioner)
                *a pikaform is a cross between a pikachu and a castform, which reminds me of a temperamental pokemon cause it changes with the weather, paraphrase it to moods... and i'm a dark pikachu... so yeah*
                *DoMT is my abbreviation for darkness of my tears...*

                Truth be told, I have no idea what it is but meh...

                And you're very welcome. ^_~ I don't blame you if you get teary. A lot of people are fustrated by things they feel they cannot do, yet they can only if they try without giving up right away. Well, all I can say is best of luck with the next chapter! I honestly look forward to it and can't wait to read it! Good luck-

                :3~

                    I wouldn't expect a 12 year old to write stories so good... You even outshine the older writers... *coughevenmecough* XD

                    Nooo...I know older writers write much better than me, as I had stated before, all I do is string up some fancy words together, that's all. o.o; Nothing about good writing nope don't see one anywhere...Thanks again Oni so much! Now I must be off celebrating while drinking champagne.

                      12 year old shouldn't drink champagne! *grabs the bottle and starts helping himself* XD Anyways... it was between this and Rifts in Time for FanFic of the week. Hope Beau should get it next week though.

                      I can't write, so why do I keep trying? Cos I like writing. So tough. Anyhows, I just updated DoMT, so if Oni and Frostweaver were insane enough to consider reading it and even considering it - OMG! - it's now longer than 8 pages in Word. I checked.

                      Don't be upset about it. Niko didn't even credit me for starting the whole idea, giving it to Shadow, and then me telling Niko how it was managed. Of course, Niko does better management of it. And since Shadow no longer mods this forum, his critique no longer applies as Fanfiction of the Week is normally agreed by the moderators of that forum. How things change is all beyond me since I never said anything except that Fanfictions had to be properly written to qualify. It didn't matter if it was script, one-shot, or full ledged. But that doesn't stop me from picking one.

                      I could even find a suitable guest picker since I don't see Niko anywhere...

                      NIKO!? WHERE ARE YOU? If you don't come, I'm sure to start finding Yellow.

                        Meh? I was depressed all week long so I wasn't here, that's why. I was so depressed, I couldn't even manage to update my own fanfic...

                        It's okay, take your time. Depression can lead to random things, and if you weren't here because of depression, I'm sure people understand. It's not a basic necessity or anything to update your fic, right? You always have plenty of time before you have to.

                        Hope you feel better oni!

                          I've gone over it. I'm just a bit moody. It's a good thing I finished a one-shot before I ultimately became depressed...

                            What's wrong with script format? If it's extremely well-done script, can you make an exception?
