This is excellent. It's amazing how you put all of her feelings into this short and sad story. I can definitely see Misty writing something like this.

Misty moved on enough to become a Gym leader and appear in BW2! But it's still true. I love how you fit all of those peoples in there! Except for one thing... It's BARRY and Dawn. Not PAUL and Dawn. Other than that, Wonderful! Great Job, Megan!

Gosh. I can't even. I know in the summary you said you wanted criticism but... I can't think of any! It was beautiful and heartbreaking. I could imagine someone reading this as a monologue (perhaps without the pokemon references in that case ;), it's so theatrical and you can feel Misty's emotions even through writing, which is a really hard thing to capture.
All in all, great, great, great job!

Aww. Poor Misty :(
I can totally picture her writing something like this. Because she would never say it to his face, and obviously, he's never there for long enough because he's always travelling... And he is do dense that he would never notice what he's doing.
So very in character, I think.
I liked how you gave this some shape. Like, it grew from the beginning and then died away back at the end. And then finished in that one word sentence. Very dramatic. And also the short sentences were also very good. You combined them with the long ones very well, so it didn't just seem like a stopping starting story. You can tell how much she misses him because of them.
My favourite part was the simile with the Pokemon. Mainly because it was a Pokemon reference that you used. When all seems hard you try to find something solid, and for Misty that was Pokemon.
I think this was so sad. I really enjoyed it. There's not really anything I didn't like, so I'm sorry it wasn't very critiquey? That's not a word haha. Oh well.

Ya had me all the way up until the suicide implication. I'm not saying that it was bad, it was actually pretty damn good. However, I just personally don't like it when writers try to leave hints of intent for suicide. I find it to be the lowest common denominator for "edginess". But that's a personal opinion and you shouldn't take that to heart.
As for the letter itself, it was very damn good. The pacing was spot on, the pseudo-poetic approach of the letter was quite intriguing, and all in all I found it to be quite an enjoyable read.
Keep up the good work my friend.

...and beautiful. I am truly at a loss of words for this... It really describes... how I think Misty has felt. Forgotten, thrown aside.
...Thank you for writing this. God bless you.
