Do you ever intentionally or unintentionally have product placements in your fics?
Drink Coca Cola! Ahem- I mean "Maybe..."

How much have you improved since your first Pokémon fanfic? In which ways did you improve the most? Do you still retain some of your early weaknesses?

Definately. Most of the reviewers who stuck around could vouge for that. Grammar, plot, structure, description are where I improved drastically. I still have trouble with flow and description sometimes.

    I like it when it's cold . . .

    Has anyone else seen Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince yet?

    I haven't, but I already know what to expect at the end, which makes me sad face. Though they may be making up for it, in the next movie. But the excuses put by the director were irrelevant. David Yates sucks! I didn't enjoy OotP as much as the others either.

      OotP was totally forgettable. I was sitting in HP6 this morning going 'Right. What happened in the last one?' I honestly couldn't remember. It took until ten minutes in for me to remember what happened at the end of HP5, and even then, the details were sketchy. I'd read the book again, but I haven't the time. HP6 was good, though. I won't spoil it, but it was pretty good.

      Or or it froze over because someone said something wouldn't happen and that if it did, hell would freeze over, a nearly impossible event. Okay well having a hell to begin with is also impossible...

      Val's post about Hello Skitty reminds me that I actually put that too in one of my fics. Trying to find that quote now. :x

      Can we say 'lolwut?'

      I'd do a more detailed post, but I'm actually trying to get some work done for once. I managed to tear myself away from QC. I made it to strip #1000! 1000, godammit! I only found the damn thing just before this time yesterday!

        Actually, someone did request porn in the PCFI. So you weren't too far off.

        Do you ever intentionally or unintentionally have product placements in your fics?
        No. I really don't see a point to it. Why say a specific product when you can get by with the generic item.

        He drank a COOL REFRESHING COCA-COLA, which has NO ADDED PRESERVATIVES, AND NO ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS SINCE 1886. He picked COCA-COLA because IT'S THE REAL THING. Glancing at the cap, he saw a code for COKE REWARDS, a special promotion run by COCA-COLA.

        BUY COCA-COLA PRODUCTS!

        Coca-Cola also did not kill Michael Jackson. If he had endorsed Coca-Cola instead of THE OTHER EVIL PRODUCT! he would still be alive. WHAT DOES THIS TELL YOU????

        Also, a lot of my fics take place on worlds completely separate from our own.

        Andrew Wiggin doesn't get to enjoy the refreshing flavor of Coca-Cola. :(

        I get weirded out enough with the photo request topic in the anime section, I saw the latest response once, the user wanted images of the cast tied up...

        No, and I don't intend to. It just wouldn't fit the setting. :/

        I might join there sometime. XD I prefer asynchronous communication, though. It gives you time to think about what you say before you say it. :P

        Not so much that I've experienced horrible slips of the tongue is that I'll often say something and realise I wasn't clear, or that it could have been worded better. But yes, slips of the tongue occasionally come. in. :P

        That's why I like writing so much. You not only have the ability to craft your words to a high quality, but you're expected to do so.

        I imagine you wouldn't, Citrinin. "Oh no, it's a Cloak!" *sprays him with Mace* "Yeah, bee-otch!"

        Er-hem.

        In some settings it is justified, but post-apocalyptic? XD; Yeah.

        Although, something along the lines of mace probably isn't all too far out as a simple chemical weapon, brewed from some powder or other secretion of a Pokémon.

        Oh shush, now you make me feel like I was wrong. I got, like, triple-ninja'd. Lulz. I can just imagine Charlotte having a canister of Stun Spore on her person somewhere, though.

          Like someone said here, it is very painstaking trying to come up with slang words for stuff like that.
