Reviews for Casting Off
Farla chapter 1 . 1/29
You wouldn’t capitalize animal or mouse or dragon, so you shouldn’t capitalize words like pokemon or pikachu or charizard. The only time you should capitalize it is if you’re using it as the pokemon’s name, ie, Ash’s pikachu is called Pikachu. This is because you only capitalize when it’s a proper noun, which are the names of places or things – or used in place of one, like "mom" can be. Similar reasoning should be applied to any other words you’re thinking of capitalizing, like telephone or trainer. Or professor.

This is a terribly slow start. People sitting around complaining about how they wish things could be more interesting, then planning on how if they go somewhere or join up with somebody things might eventually get interesting… Why not just start with it being interesting? Why not start with him signing up at the navy, at least?
