Nice story really loved what you did with the characters. Only real problem i have is the jobs you gave the dex holders though. Yellow i feel should have become a conservationalist for viridian forest, considering her bond with the forest, the nature of her powers, and the experiments team rocket has done with the place it feels a bit too fitting. (Also means she works close to home and near Red). Also wish the sibling esque relationships between silver and blue, and crystal and emerald could of been incorporated, though i guess i dont really know how. Looking forward to the new interpersonal relationships between the dex children, maybe you should keep the relationship between cyan and garnet clean and just make it a surrogate sister relationship, considering how close garnet is to green i think it makes the most sense

Tourmaline is pronounced Tur-ma-leen. Did you know that? Good story though!

I loved your story! You really captured the personalities of the pokedex holders and I really enjoyed the characters that you created.

I want to write a really long and meaningful review about this story that gets across just how amazing and, AMAZING it is, but I have no words. I applaud your skill and talent for making my night. Scratch that, I've been reading it and lost track of time. It's one in the morning now. Totally worth it. Wow. WOW. Your riting skill is just... INCREDIBLE.

Whatever this is, I'm glad I found it. The idea is unique, the writing is good and (even though this is a comment on a 3 year old story) the adventure between Amber and Garnet would be an enjoying read. Also, Garnet is a great character.

I loved it. This was perfect. So long, yet so beautiful. I really liked how you explored multiple characters, and went through phases of time. This was just so wonderful. Beautiful. Amazing. A work of art.

I dunno why but I don't like Garnet, she reminds me of a female Green and Silver combined, but I like the story though!

Once again, you have proven to me why you remain to be my favorite Poke'writer to this day. The humor! Fantastic. The characterization? That's your middle name, I swear it. The emotions, the mature dialogue, the insightful lines... Heck, you could probably write about any number of other kinds of fandoms and I'd probably still love it. Your words are just that spectacular. The way you handled all these personalities, canon or OC, ... an individual who doesn't know any better would not be able to tell that those OCs are, in fact, not even a part of the original cast. They are weaved in so naturally and given such humanity that there wasn't even one character that I did not like. Which is strange since with this kind of story length, I would be tempted to skip to the scenes that star characters that matter to me. But right from each character's debut, I was captivated.
I've never even bothered to read about Ruby/Sapphire before (not even by you - gasp! I know) but you have, no surprise..., quickly changed my views on that. Ruby's character is such a riot. My god, from beginning to now (that screeching, ahahaa) - even when I didn't really think much of his character, that kind of personality was the least one I would have expected. He's probably my favorite now, next to Garnet. Garnet is a riot in her own way. Bless Amber and his heart.
After each line-break, I am constantly awed by how well you juggle everybody's post-marriage and for other couples (ahem, Blue/Green), pre-marriage. It goes to show that even when you get together, it's still a journey 'til you keel over and even then.. perhaps that is an adventure in of itself. Thank-you for taking a huge load of your time making this, refining it, and sharing it! If you ever do happen to reveal to us what happened during Garnet and Amber's journey, I will stalk (err, follow) your writing there as well.

oh my god ... such a long chapter

THIS! THIS! THIS
is literally the greatest piece of pokemon special fic i have ever laid my eyes on. in terms of characterisation, character development, dialogue - everything was so perfect and adorable and wonderful and so nostalgic - so much so that this is practically canon to me -
the only way i could deal with the after-feels of reading this fanfic was to scramble into my basement and read the entire manga series over again, cover to cover
you are an amazing human being for writing this, i apologise for my appalling incoherence but it's just - THE FEELS -
/dies and ascends to heaven
(i know you'll probably never update this again, but i just want to let you know that if you ever do it will possibly be the best thing that has ever happened to my life)

hahahaha laughing. just laughing... anyway that's besides the point. good luck with your writings!
| inklaced chapter 1 . 10/30/2014
hi, somebody just recommended this fic to me and immediately I can see why they like it, cause this was brilliantly written! I have not read a good oneshot like this in a very, very long time. honestly I was laughing and rolling my eyes and really being into the story, if you get what I mean. keep up the good work, good luck and rock on!

"And the award for best Pokemon Special fanfic goes to...!"
But in all seriousness, thank you. I honestly can't express my gratitude and thanks and other stuff that came with reading this fanfic. This is the type of masterpiece that I can look at and say, "It needs no words." Not because it really doesn't, but because I could never put my feelings about his fic into words. The way that you took the Dexholders, the Dexholders I thought I knew inside and out, and you dug in there, and managed to pull out diamonds I'd never dreamed of seeing... You went so deep, that a Pokemon fanfic made me laugh, cry, and wish it would never end...so thanks. I wish I could help you somehow, to help you keep these "monsters" going, but all I can do is favorite it and leave a review. I'm sorry, I'm grateful, and I'm sad, because I may have just read the most beautiful fic ever.
PS. can we propagate this thing? Seriously? Like, raise the standards for fanfiction writing? This needs to be stickied for the community. Leave a review that says "Aye" if you agree
PSS. Also, can we have a section for just Pokespe fanfics? Most communities die out after a short while, and I figure we have enough fics at this point...

I think my favourite part of this was your little comment: "Red and Yellow are possibly really chill parents. Maize just runs all over the place and they're like "ah, there she goes again", "reminds me of when we were her age", "we were more wild than her weren't we", "wonderful", "ah, youth"."
I can just completely imagine that XD
