12/10/13-Pokemon Y! You won't be seeing me for a while.
Profile Pic: Since I've got Pokemon Y, it should be a Yveltal. It is? Okay then. BEHOLD, THE LEGENDARY Y BIRD! IT FLIES! IT DESTROYS STUFF! IT...may be linked to death. No wait, don't run away, I'm sure Yveltal just wants to hug people!...Yes, hug people with his deadly claw tipped wings.
This place is active, but I don't want to jinx it: http://www.fanfiction.net/forum/Sonic_RP_TO_THE_MAX/110692/
How I usually review: I know, I should be reviewing more often...if I do review your story, don't be put off by the fact I only review a few times and vanish suddenly. If it's on my favourites list, I'm still reading the story!
Also...I'd like to take a moment to say how much I hate Mary Sues/Gary Stu characters. I run myself ragged putting my OCs through Mary Sue tests, and giving them weaknesses and such. I might even write a Mary Sue parody fic when I have the time. But honestly, when I see a Mary Sue story, or a story with an overpowered chracter, with no weaknesses to balance their abilities out...I want to reach through the computer, and slap someone. You're lucky I can't...so, from now on, I will offer my services as a Beta Reader to check stories, and gently point out, GENTLY that Edward Sparklefang Shineway Glitterboy is overpowered. No, not talking about Twilight at all...
PMs: Don't be shy, you can PM me with any random messages you have, from plot suggestions and OCs to RPing and if I like the taste of blood or not.
Name:Swiftshadow, Swift to my friends
Age: I'M REPEATING MY A LEVELS. How embarrassing. Or maybe not, since I just admitted it. But 17, and doing two subjects plus other subject that I really don't like, but picked because it's not exam based. *shrug* I'm a bad person.
Hobbies: Reading, knitting, RPing, typing...
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
Books: Twilight (but I'm not crazy about it) Cat Paradise (a manga) Inheritance Cycle, Warrior Cats, His Dark Materials, How to Train your Dragon and Jane Eyre.
Games: Drawn to Life, Pokemon, Harvest Moon, Sonic, Phoenix Wright, Solatorobo, Ghost Trick and even though I haven't played them and am too much of a wuss to do so, Persona 3 and 4, and the Devil Survivor games. I may get Break Record, if it ever actually comes out.
TV shows: Primeval, Fatal Encounters, Disappeared, Redrum (murder! But in reverse!) various documentaries, and MLP. It's strange to switch from depressing crime stuff to ponies.
Likes: Games, procrastinating, daydreaming, writing (I wouldn't be here otherwise) Mountain Dew, Sociology and Psychology.
Dislikes: Exams, essays, long essays, homework, and OVERPOWERED HYDREIGON. Great StarClan.
About me: I'm really procrastinating at the moment when I should be writing or revising. So let me get back to that.
Favorite animals: Rats (they're cute, but they get a bad reputation...) crows, pigeons, dogs, wolves and jackals.
Zodiac signs: I'm a Fire Rat (Chinese zodiac) and a Pisces.
What I think of most pairings: To clear things up a bit, I'm neutral when it comes to most pairings. As long as...umm, the questionable ones aren't graphic, I won't go, 'Eww.' This means, I will not favour any type of pairing over the other ones, unless it's canon. I'm crap at romance writing anyway, and I concentrate on adventure type stuff, so I don't think you'll be seeing any romance fics in the future. StarClan forbid I write a M rated story. I don't think my sort of traditional 'looks at certain acts and goes, How Shocking!' nature could handle it. It's getting better with time, but I still cringe.
Some random facts:
I'm on Chatango!
I have Aspergers, and I'm proud of it!
Swiftshadow is my Warrior cat name! I also beat the Warrior Cats adventure game, and I also have the name of Swiftfire! (somehow? Perhaps I hit the wrong letter or something). Eff yeah, ShadowClan. Sort of. When they're not starting territory wars and being nasty.
I'm a Shadow Fangirl!

Teh Video game news! (updated 6/10/13)
I would start a blog, but I'm too lazy, and there's all this open space right here.
So, Pokemon X and Y. When it was announced in January, I can remember not caring about it much, because I had a DS Lite at the time. I wasn't able to afford a 3DS, so I just told myself that I didn't need a game.
But then the summer holidays came. And I was hit by the awesome. Originally, I wanted to get Pokemon X, since I like the sound of the title and I thought Yveltal looked ridiculous (a giant, red flying Y. At least Xerneas shows some subtlety, and has X shaped pupils. But nope, Yveltal has to be the one that flies through the air, drawing attention from Trainers and confused Pokemon). I changed my mind when I saw the title screen (from the demo) and Yveltal flapping his wings away dramatically. So, I decided to get Pokemon Y, and traded in my DS Lite, White 2 game, and my Netbook for a 3DS.
But, onto the theories. I've had these theories for a while now, and I'm hoping that Nintendo had some of these ideas in mind, but I highly doubt it. So, the theories are:
-Pokemon X and Y are Norse mythology based this time (valid, Yveltal may be a blind eagle who uses the power of aura to see things. Notice how his markings resemble Mega Lucario's? Norse mythology is not my strong point though, Japanese mythology is. Thanks, Okami)
-Since Xerneas is the Life Pokemon, and Yveltal is its counterpart, Yveltal IS NOT the 'Destruction Pokemon' he's more like the Death Pokemon. Nintendo didn't want to use the word 'death' though, and called him the Destruction Pokemon instead. Destruction and death aren't too different, after all. However, I think that a plot point could be Yveltal being misunderstood (as he has a knack for blowing things up) but then it's explained that he's not evil. Cue cutscene of Yveltal burning forest to ground, and then Xerneas skipping in to regrow it. They symbolise forces in nature, not good and evil. Bonus points for this, since Yveltal resembles the Black Bearded Vulture, and vultures are rather misunderstood. But really, they just tidy up dead corpses.
-Team Flare are SECRET AGENT GUYS. Of course, their main motivation could be money, but they're dressed like stereotypical secret agents. They may want to catch Yveltal and Xerneas because it's far too dangerous having a magical deer and laser bird running around Kalos, so this means Pokemon version of Area 51. However, their team leader is corrupt, and wants to use the legendaries to take over the world, or...
-Team Flare could have something to do with the Mega Evolution items. Perhaps they're trying to sell them illegally, and with the DNA of the legendaries, they can create better items. That said, they may also want to genetically engineer Pokemon as well. They're called Team Flare, Flare could be taken as a pun on their snappy outfits and fashion flair, so they want to be the best they can be. Bring in the genetically engineered Furfrou. Which then brings us to our next point.
-Team Flare don't just use Fire types, that would be silly. The grunts use Fire types, as well as 'pretty' Pokemon, like Furfrou. Not many people would find a disgruntled poodle staring into your eyes with killer intent charming, so Team Flare get to use Furfrou to intimidate people AND they can give it fabulous haircuts. The admins, bosses, scientist people or whatever you want to call them will use different types of course. They may go for power and appearance when building their Pokemon teams. Anyway, since Team Flare now have scientist people and creepy dude with glasses, the 'genetically engineer Pokemon to be powerful and have smashing looks' theory seems likely.
Times I am available to reply in PMs-
Week: 4:00 PM (British time) to 10:00 PM or 12:00, depending on my school timetable. For people who live in different timezones, you should tell me the time you're available, and I'll try and see if I can get on at that time, as long as it isn't insanely early in the morning.
Friday to Sunday: 6:00 AM (British time) to 11:30 PM, depending on if I can reach my Netbook. If I don't reply back straight away, I'm asleep, doing work, or grounded from using my Netbook.
