Diary of a Watchmaker- Preview
The DoomsDay Watch - Chapter 3: (2,117 words)
As for why this profile never got updated whilst I was still working, the last datestamp I had for it (14/07/10) confirmed me as the creator of the Indigo Effect phrase and meaning, which since I created it in at latest 2008, has had a little bit of a spread over the internet. However, since I have the reasoning behind the name, I decided that is enough to prove my ownership of it. Its not exactly something that could be profitable anyway, I just hate it when people accuse me of lying.
I've been updating bits and pieces of the profile, though since the html editor is still wonky after all these years I can't afford to alter the anchors despite the Media section having almost entirely becoming irrelavant.
Flicking through the Watchmaker's Diary, you find a list of acquaintances of the author. Amongst them, you find the label of Lateral Ganon, alongside a diagram of a strange mechanical being:
A clockwork monster. Approaches all situations rationally, although prone to bouts of fury when harm has reached someone or something it has taken a particular fondness to. Unquestionably loyal since it lacks the capacity for betrayal.
The creature is undoubtedly English, and always refers to time in British Standard Time and Day/Month/Year.
Despite its obvious lack of flesh, it has interests in biology and cooking. However in keeping with its own needs for maintenance, metalwork and generically inventing are also keen past times.
You close the book, somewhat sated by your investigation
Competitive Pokemon Gaming
I'm currently very rusty in this department, though I own Pokemon Diamond, HeartGold, and Black versions. Only Diamond had a competitive team set up, but eventually I intend to produce teams on all of them.
Other Wifi Games I have:
Mario Kart DS
If anyone wants to challenge me at any of these wifi games, PM me and arrange a time. Most of them I'm rusty at at the moment, but expect me to put some semblence of practice in.
Official namer of the LugiaxLatios ship: SilverLightShipping
An absolute bare minimum for a chapter is 2k words. However this is extremely short with little scope for plot development, and has long since been scrapped in favour of a 5k requirement to be acceptible as my fics have got longer and the time between updates has lengthened.
Apparantly, every time you put real physics into an anime or fiction, God kills a catgirl. I deliberately put a lot of consistant physics in because of that, particularly in Soul Etude. This penchant for real physics begins to decline as the arc progresses, as more fundamental forces begin to become apparant and influential, defining the world's more obscure branches of physics.
Great Spirits Above - Romance/Spiritual - The history of Kraith is saturated with myths, stories even from ages before human civilisation. A time of tribal communities, hunting and foraging for their existence. In an age unfettered by the chains of science, magic and spirits are very real things, to be revered and respected. This story is intended to be practically devoid of character speech, though retaining length.
Gemstone - Adventure/Romance - Avoiding your ex is easy. Avoiding a hell-bent lizard and his cronies hell-bent on stealing your current girlfriend... quite a bit harder.
Now And Forever - Sci-Fi - Something I came up with whilst taking a shower. It's amazing how many ideas emerge from the pursuit of cleanliness. Like A Kiss of Fire, it's set outside of my Ganon x Laura standard pairing, but still set in Kraith.
Tremors - General - This fic would explain exactly why Dowsing can't take place in the normal timeline, although there are three issues with it. A) It needs a lot more of SitN done before enough is known about it to make sense. B) It needs TAoS to be completely finished so No. 7 is started. C) It would probably turn up in No. 7 anyway about 8 chapters in
Opalescence - Response to SU's EspeonxUmbreon Challenge ages ago. Virtually guaranteed to be multi-chapter, and again set in a part of Kraith.
Of The Origin of Species - General - The MewxShaymin fic I'll make if the poll result is good. Mew and Shaymin stumble on a planet void of life (Earth in the distant past), and compete to decide the dominant organism: Plants or animals. Naturally, chaos ensues as the challenge gets dirty... quite literally when mud starts flying.
The Doomsday Watch - Romance/Adventure - Generations back, legends told of how the Bane of the Eons had been sealed away in the Temple of Wind, never to be released, and to crumble to dust as the earth aged. However, as time progressed, those in awe of the Beast's power sought to awaken it and unleash its wrath on the world. Now free, only the powers that sealed it away in the first place can reinstate the peace. The trouble is, in this age of rationality, the old gods are gone - the Watchmaker has ceased to be. Only his footprint remains with us.
Rocking the Boat - Romance/Adventure - I really need to work on a summary for this. All I can word so far is that it's a friendshipping thats not a friendshipping.
The Guardian Father - Action/Adventure/General - A rewrite I made of Pokemon Heroes. The first story I made on this site, and requires some repair.
Soul Etude - Romance/Adventure - A pet project of mine which is a prequel to The Guardian Father (well, it happens quite a while before TGF, at least 40-30 years previously). It's how my two main characters met each other, and became a pair.
The Appliance of Science - General/Sci-Fi - Based on Pokemon Movie Seven: Destiny Deoxys, written like I did The Guardian Father for Pokemon Heroes.
A Kiss Of Fire- Romance/General - My first fic that isn't an Eonshipping. Even a fire type can fall in love, even if its kiss burns anything it touches. Benjamin Pepper is about to find this out to his peril as his mother rescues an albino Cyndaquil from the frozen wastelands of the North. It's Human x Quilava, although it may become Human x Typhlosion if she evolves further. May become quite dark. Well, not quite dark, but dark enough to scare people. The later events in it will become quite prominent in SitN, depending on the ending I choose.
If Dragons May Care - Romance/General - This is a remake of The Guardian Father like Kotor made a remake for Shadow Guardian. This version is made to contain considerably more Altoshipping than the original, and including the less prominent Dewshipping. Also, there are some major overhauls to the plot, including a very noticable change to the Latias, which the summary is based on.
Murdered Mirth - Parody - Dracoshipping? Cute? Don't make me laugh. You want the real picture of what Rayquaza does when it encouters a Latias? Well... pull up a chair... and a blindfold because it's not pretty. You see, the carnivorous beast can't keep it's busy claws off those girls, but once it's finished with them, you might as well kiss them goodbye, because you sure as hell aren't going to see them again.
Forget-Me-Not - Romance - The worst thing, the absolutly worst thing you can do on Christmas Eve, is not overindulging on turkey, nor is it eating the inedible christmas decorations, it's forgetting the present for those who are dearest to you. Just a little thing for whilst I had writers block on SitN.
A Lover's Lament - Romance/Angst - Another fluffy romance one-shot. Among my worst attempts at fiction.
All Rivers Lead To The Sea - General/Response - Response to the LatiosxLugia challenge set by SilverUmbra. On the border of Rayquazas territory, a solitary Latios guards over a mountain spring. Due to the proximity of the Rayquaza, no Latias could ever settle with him without being savaged by the deranged snake. Dutifully resigning himself to a life of solitude, a botched attempt to capture him by Team Rocket dislodges him from his home, swiftly delivering him to the open arms of the sea.
The Dowsing Machine - General - All it was supposed to be was a glorified compass: A means to locate an end. But some people don't want to be found: Criminals thinking themselves above the rules. Those people will do anything to avoid being brought to justice, but no-one can outrun it for long. It's just a matter of time before you're caught, and sentanced.
Contact - General - AzelfxUxie. Set in the Diamond and Pearl Game Universe, just prior to the beginning of the plans by Team Galactic.

Since my last appearance on this site, I have been investigating the open source modelling program Blender, in addition to my previously used ProDesktop. Whilst it promises more convenience (I won't have to make absolutely every frame), I still haven't found the tools to do so. Fortunately, it supports my ProD models, so that saves a LOT of time figuring out how to make such complex models. Anyone that can point me to a good tutorial will be thanked.
The Indigo Effect:
When I write, I listen to a piece of music which I find activates a new level in my imagination. The first incident of this was a Jazz piece called 'The Indigo-Gos' by a fictional band under the same name. Hence the name Indigo Effect. Unfortunately, they periodically wear off, meaning I have to find a new one.
I was amused when a music band actually took up the name, though they since disbanded. None of their tracks received actual indigo effect status by the way. Sometimes the I.E. track leads to the creation of a whole scene in my stories, such as Murray Gold's All The Strange, Strange Creatures which has since gone to be the basis of SE's cloning Attempt IX sequence when I eventually animate it
The current track that invokes the Indigo effect:
You Know Her? - Portal 2 OST
First, the obvious ones. Rayquaza is ten times bigger than her, and in most cases, thousands of years older. Two obvious enough reasons besides it being genderless. No trousers so to speak. And even if that weren't the case, totally incompatible body shapes: a snake, and a teardrop.
I also doubt that Latias would like someone that is trying to help an evil psycho put the entire planet into subspace. Brawl fans will know what I'm on about. Give that infernal lizard a good kick in the face for me, because I can't get a Wii because of needing the time for working at University
On another note, the seventh pokemon movie offered an insight into the Rayquazas mindset. Since it made an unprovoked attack on the Deoxys pair towards the end when they were celebrating being reunited, its fairly safe to say it has no ability to comprehend romance or affection. Also, exposing Latias to such violence would be life-threatening at the very least.
But the reason that seals it for me though, besides the physical dangers it would put her in, is that she is someone to be respected and revered. If whoever she's with has a status higher than her, then she doesn't get the respect she deserves. As Rayquaza has a much higher technical legendary status, it takes the attention off of her completely. That's just selfish.
Everyone seems to have something on their profiles with humorous quotes. I got bored when stuck with writers block, so I decided I'd bring in my favorite quotes from some of my stories.

All Rivers Lead To The Sea: After the Rawst Berry Incident.
“How long do I have to wait before I can go?” He asked her calmly.
“Well… whenever you feel ready now.” She said remorsefully. He looked at his wing, the burn mark fading quickly. He flexed it experimentally, with no signs of pain. He looked over his shoulder as he heard the girl move over next to him. Her face was pensive
The Lugia settled down opposite him, looking out into the ocean.
“It’s a lovely view here isn’t it?” She asked him. He nodded absently as he looked at her, then jolted and quickly spun around to look at the ocean outside when he realised what he’d effectively just said.
DAMN! He thought loudly to himself. She blushed as she noticed his response, and smiled. There were no other Lugia in the oceans around Kraith, and like the Eon had been, she often found herself lonely. Even if there were any more nearby, she was still very young by Lugia standards, and she was only the size of the Latios anyway.
She got back up, moving towards the back of the cave, and the Latios turned around to watch her. She was a graceful mover at the very least he thought as he watched her. He mentally slapped himself for even thinking it.
“What’s your name?” She asked him casually. He coughed, still trying to regain his composure.
“Lolonyo.” He answered, his voice croaking slightly in embarrassment.
“Oh.” She said blushing, “Mine’s Felicity. It means happiness.”
Lolonyo turned away from her to hide the fact his face was now crimson.
“I really should be going now.” He said, his voice breaking as he struggled to maintain the proud demeanour. Felicity looked around at him, noticing he was shaking a lot.
At this point, I gave up with this line as it would have become very fluffy very quickly, and frankly dull. Besides, giving them names with meaning turns them into Mary Sues.
Having seen about half a dozen of these, I thought I might as well too. They generally end up funny.
List twelve of your favorite characters from your fandom, in no particular order.
1. Have you ever read a Six/Eleven (Latios/Latias) fic? Do you want to?
Read them? I write them! And obviously if I write them, I'd want to read them. Shame there aren't really that many.
2. Do you think Four (Quilava) is hot? How hot?
Is that a trick question? 800 Centigrade? I dunno. I don't carry a thermometer.
3. What would happen if Twelve (Blaziken) got Eight (Feraligatr) pregnant?
The Blaziken would need to be hospitalised from the love bites.
4. Can you recall any fics about Nine (Riolu)?
Well, Kotor started one ages ago, and I've got one as a main sideliner, but none as a main.
5. Would Two (Glaceon) and Six (Latios) make a good couple?
Maybe, but it's one of my favorite pairs for throwing sparks off each other so definately not going to become a couple in my stories.
6. Five(Lugia)/Nine(Riolu) or Five (Lugia)/Ten (Swampert)? Why?
Well Riolu isn't physically possible cos its a baby pokemon, so I guess only Swampert can apply.
7. What would happen if Seven (Darkrai) walked in on Two (Glaceon) and Twelve (Blaziken) having sex?
He'd make everyone else suffer that image in their worst nightmares.
8. Make up a summary for a Three (Mew) /Ten (Swampert) fic.
A Mew, bored of the usual life of being worshipped, plays a prank on an unsuspecting and lonely Swampert by transforming into another Swampert, offering a glimmer of companionship before snatching it away.
9. Is there any such thing as One (Lucario) /Eight (Feraligatr) fluff?
Only for those with a rather warped imagiantion... like the person that invented Dracoshipping...
10. Suggest a title for a Seven (Darkrai) /Twelve (Blaziken) hurt/comfort fic.

Only someone that showed me a Mew catgirl picture once (after which all catgirls had to die)

Well, there are a lot of us that adore her like the godess she is, so yes.
13. Would anyone on your friends list write Two (Glaceon)/Four (Quilava)/Five (Lugia)?
I suppose KotorPlayerVII might if he got some good inspiration for it.
14. If you wrote a Song-fic about Eight (Feraligatr), what song would you choose?
'Never Smile At A Crocodile' (Yes, this actually exists.)
15. If you wrote a One (Lucario) /Six (Latios) /Twelve (Blaziken) fic, what would the warning be?
Warning: May mirror Chapter 14 of 'The Guardian Father'.
16. When was the last time you read a fic about Five (Lugia)?
Actually quite a long time ago now...
17. "(1) and (7) are in a happy relationship until (9) runs off with (4). (1), brokenhearted, has a hot one-night stand with (11) and a brief unhappy affair with (12), then follows the wise advice of (5) and finds true love with (3).
Lucario and Darkrai are in a happy relationship until Riolu runs off with Quilava. Lucario, brokenhearted, has a hot one-night stand with Latias and a brief unhappy affair with Blaziken, then follows the wise advice of Lugia and finds true love with Mew.
17. What title would you give this fic?
'You Steel My Heart Away'
18. How would you feel if Seven (Darkrai) /Eight (Feraligatr) was canon?
I'd wonder how much paint thinner the writers had been drinking. Probably several gallons. Per night.
Chose 10 of your OC's. Or ten of your favourite people. (Like friends, family, celebrities. Anyone you think is cool.) But you can't choose yourself.
1) 4 (Lucario) invites 3 (Glaceon) and 8 (Latios) to dinner at their house. What happens?
Lucario: Can I have a promotion yet Melissa?
2) 9 (Mew) tries to get 5 (Darkrai) to go to a yoga class. What happens?
Darkrai Dark-Voids Mew, and gives him curls with the help of Lugia.
3) You need to stay at a friend’s house for the night. Do you choose 1 (Quilava) or 6 (Latias)?
Latias definitely. If they were both friends of mine, I’d no doubt have proposed to Latias already, so we'd be on very friendly terms.
4) 2 (Lugia) and 7 (Feraligatr) are making out. 10 (Alakazam) walks in...What is their reaction?
Alakazam: What the hell?! Adam, you said you were just going for a coffee! Now I find you tangled up in the wings of a Legendary?!
5) 3 (Glaceon) falls in love with 6 (Latias). 8 (Latios) is jealous. What happens?
Latios: Melissa, do you know what gender all Latias are?
6) 4 (Lucario) jumps you in a dark alleyway. Who comes to your rescue? 10 (Alakazam), 2 (Lugia) or 7 (Feraligatr)?
Feraligatr. No one would argue with those teeth.
7) 1 (Quilava) decides to start a cooking show. 15 minutes later what is happening?
The whole studio is on fire, as well as the next seven buildings downwind.
9) 3 (Glaceon) has to marry either 8 (Latios), 4 (Lucario) or 9 (Mew). Who do they chose?
Mew. Don’t know why, but since Lazlo’s as good as dead, she won’t be going for another Lucario.
10) 7 (Feraligatr) kidnaps 2 (Lugia) and demands something from 5 (Darkrai) for 2 (Lugia)'s release. What is it?
Feraligatr: Hey! Get me a jetpack, or Lugia gets killed.
11) You get to meet either 1 (Quilava) or 6 (Latias). Who do you chose?
Why would I propose to someone I wouldn’t yearn to meet? Latias of course!
12) 10 (Alakazam) challenges 4 (Lucario) to a chariot race. Why?
He needs to test out a new chariot-like gadget he just invented, and rather than crash tests, he decides to have fun for once.
13) Everyone gangs up on 3 (Glaceon). Does 3 (Glaceon) have a chance in hell?
14) Everyone is invited to 2 (Lugia) and 10’s (Alakazam) wedding except for 8 (Latios). How do they react?
He didn’t need to be invited. He was the best man.
15) Why is 6 (Latios) afraid of 7 (Feraligatr)?
Have you seen those teeth?
16) 10 (Alakazam) gathers everyone around to tell them a fairy tale. How does it go?
Alakazam: Once upon a time, there was a big bad Pokemon named Deoxys. He was very powerful, and tried to bring an end to all happi-
17) 1 (Quilava) arrives late for 2 (Lugia) and 10 (Alakazam)'s wedding. What happens? And why are they late?
Quilava: Stop the ceremony!
18) 5 (Darkrai) and 9 (Mew) get roaring drunk and end up at your house. What happens?
Mew starts smashing up the furniture, bawling lyrics about death and blood, whilst Darkrai is huddled up in the corner, holding a fly-swatter, swatting at the air.
19) 3 (Glaceon), 8 (Latios), 6 (Latias) and 4 (Lucario) all go to the zoo for 8 (Latios)'s birthday party. How does it go? What presents do they get 8 (Latios)?
Within ten minutes, they get bored, causing Lucario to ‘accidentally’ release half of the animals. After hiding and watching hordes of tourists being chased by Rhyhorns, they call it a day and return to the Hotel. Glaceon got Latios a pack of playing cards, Lucario got him a DVD of The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Latias keeps putting it off, saying that she’d give him his present ‘tonight’, before breaking into giggles again.
20) Everyone gets together and starts protesting something outside your house. What are they protesting? What do you do?
They are protesting that I don’t write often enough. I open a window and yell at them that I’m too busy with work for University, and most of them continue pacing around. The Latias looks up forlornly, tugging at my heartstrings, and forcing me to live up to my rule of always making time for a Latias, and I resume writing about her.
21) 9 (Mew) murders 2 (Lugia)’s best friend. What does 2 (Lugia) do to get back at them?
Lugia: Mew, I’m going to make you wish you were never born.
22) 6 (Latias) and 1 (Quilava) are in mortal danger. Only one of them can survive. Does 6 (Latias) save themselves or 1 (Quilava)?
Under normal circumstances, a Latias’s priority is to help others, but just as she’s about to rescue Quilava, Lugia dives in and snatches her fiancée out of harm, allowing Latias to escape unharmed.
23) Which one of them is most likely to fail at life?
Ooh… tough one… I suppose Feraligatr because he’d never be able to get a kiss in his life with those teeth.
24) 5 (Darkrai) is trapped in a cave. 10 (Alakazam) comes to rescue them. What happens?
Darkrai: Go away. I’m meditating.
25) 3 (Glaceon) starts a day camp. What happens?
Glaceon: Hi-de-hi campers! Who knows what we’re going to do today?
26) 4 (Lucario), 6 (Latias), and 7(Feraligatr) are doing the Hokey-Pokey. 8 (Latios) walks in. What happens?
Latios: Hi sweetheart. What’s with the dancing?
27) 1 (Quilava) starts to write a fan-fiction where 9 (Mew) and 10 (Alakazam) are going out. What is 2 (Lugia)'s reaction?
Lugia: (Inspects the story) Ooh my! Nice way to tell my ex he was a jerk. Can I have a copy?
28) 7 (Feraligatr) makes an apple pie. Is it any good?
What apple pie? He ate it before we knew it was finished.
29) 8 (Latios) and 3 (Glaceon) go camping. For some reason they forget to bring any food. What do they do?
Latios: Sod this, I’m going home. Latias will be waiting for me.
30) While they are camping, they run into The Blair Witch. What do they do? (If you haven't seen that movie pretend they ran into the Bogyman or something like that instead.)
Oogie Boogie: Well well well, what have we here? A Latios, huh? Ooh, I’m really scared (!)
31) The quiz is over. What does everyone go do now?
Latios returns to the warm embrace of Latias, Lugia and Quilava arrange a marriage, Darkrai and Alakazam are still in the cave, Glaceon resumes having shouting matches with Lucario, Feraligatr pines over his inability to kiss anyone, and Mew has taken over the chapel and uses the organ twenty-four hours a day as a gothic rock-venue, writing his own tracks of general woe and misery, although the girlish trinkets in his fur leave a lot to be desired for his reputation.
