Very Good i am always waiting for the next chapter also i must say that you have got the feel of the show in this already

Ooh, you've got Farla's approval now! Nice work.
Anyway, good chapter. Katherine's questions, responses and suspicions feel very natural. You've been turning out chapters pretty regularly; that's good, for a lot of writers, school really eats up their time.
I eagerly await the next installment.

Hm. I like this so far. You've got the mechanics of writing pretty much down, the story actually has a good plot and no one character seems favored, and you manage to move the story along without telling everything at once. The previous chapters were short, but this one's a good length. And you've left me curious about the patch of forest Jeremy talks about. Good job!

Oh right, I forgot to explain what Sue-ism is...basically, there is in fanfiction a character type referred to as the Mary-Sue. What exactly this constitutes varies from fandom to fandom. In general, a Mary-Sue is a character (usually female, but many male examples exist) who is incredibly attractive and has a lot of unusual, innate skill.
In pokémon fanfiction, a Mary-Sue:
-is usually an original character that is related to characters from the anime or games,
-usually has unusual hair and/or eye color,
-usually has innate special powers such as the ability to talk to pokémon, psychic powers, etc.,
-usually has an over-emphasized caring disposition toward pokémon,
-usually has pokémon that have special colors,
-usually has especially strong pokémon or wins a lot of battles even though their skill as a trainer isn't actually anything special
-often has an unusual starter, like an eevee or vulpix
-is often given things by complete strangers for shallow reasons
But I wouldn't accuse you of any of the above criteria so far. Katherine seems acceptable so far because her team is mostly under-appreciated pokemon (kudos to you on that! _) like Muk especially. She seems to understand what he says when she talked to him, but it sounds more like trainer/pokémon familiarity than OMGZ I CAN UNDERSTAND ALL POKEMON! EVER SINCE I WAS LITTLE! 'n stuff.
I guess the only thing I didn't like was the pokémon's diets...I thought it was pretty cute how you kind of personalized them that way, but I guess I'm just a bigger supporter of pokemon hunting for their own food. But that's not super important, anyway.

Wow, I like the story... Ninetales is my absolute favorite Pokemon.
And Absol and Pikachu... and a few others... Okay, I like most of them! D
Anyway, keep it up, I've added you to my favorite author and Stories list. _-

Nice story! Keep at it. The thing about the ninetales being the ruler of the forest is good, although you should be careful to avoid overstressing it-its better to let stuff like that develop over time.
Write more chapters!
BTW, I'm writing a story called The End Days. If you could R&R, that'd be a big help. Thanks!
| Kamaitachi chapter 3 . 10/7/2004
This is a good story so far!
| Keleri chapter 3 . 10/6/2004
Hmm, this is starting to look pretty good. I hope you'll continue.
If you're haivng trouble with formatting, I'd suggest typing your chapters up in microsoft word with a separate document for each chapter. Then save it as HTML and upload it to FFnet. that's what I do and it works quite well.
| Asrialys chapter 3 . 10/6/2004
Wow, this has so far been an excellent story. All characters, human and Pokemon alike, are very interesting to read. And you have good description, much better than mine.
v_ballplayer here, by the way.
Oh yeah, about the Qucik Edit thing, it doesn't work like HTML, more like a Word program. For my story, I only use Notepad to create HTML documents so they can actually be like web pages, and I can do about anything with my text. Or at least this site allows me to put.
| Psionicnemesis chapter 1 . 10/5/2004
this idea is good for a story especially in the
Indenting? well I used space bar and you can copy
the whole thing on the Microsoft word and transfer
it to the quickedit page. It saves time
and I think this story needs more spacing
Nice grammar though
