Name: Gold Elm

Status notes: Strongest of the sixteen Indigo League leaders and former League Champion, though he voluntarily relinquished the title after a loss to Red Ketchum. Currently officially residing in the Viridian Gym, though he wanders so often, particularly to Mt Silver to join Lyra Hearton's investigations, odds aren't great that he'll be there if you call.

Shock and horror, it's a Pokémon fic instead of a Detective Conan/Magic Kaito one! But I really wanted to write this, so I'll put up the first couple of chapters and the prologue and see what people make of it.
I've been a fan of Pokémon since the nineties. It WAS my childhood. For about ten years, Gold and Crystal were my absolute favourite games, and weren't ousted until I got Pokémon HeartGold. This fic is working on the fairly reasonable assumption that the events of Pokémon HeartGold/SoulSilver, from first getting your Pokémon to defeating Red, took roughly twenty months or so, and that the events of this story take place about three years later. It follows on somewhat from my oneshot "Silence In The Snow", though it's not a straight sequel; SITS was written to be applicable from almost anyone's perspective, so while Lyra would have had a similar experience, she wouldn't have had precisely the same experience. That's how I'm explaining any discontinuities XD
SITS notwithstanding, this is really my first foray into the Pokémon fandom, so feedback would be appreciated enormously. This fic is based off of the games rather than the manga or anime (though you may notice little shout outs to both ;) ) so please let me know if you think I've created a believable world from that, and if you think I've created good characters out of silent protagonists. Of course, don't be afraid to let me know if you think I've failed utterly as well XD
Anyway, I'll stop rambling now.
I would never presume to claim Pokémon as my own. I bow at Tajiri Satoshi-sama's feet for its creation.
