Fanfiction is what literature might look like if it were reinvented from scratch after a nuclear apocalypse by a band of brilliant pop-culture junkies trapped in a sealed bunker. They don't do it for money. That's not what it's about. The writers write it and put it up online just for the satisfaction. They're fans, but they're not silent, couchbound consumers of media. The culture talks to them, and they talk back to the culture in its own language.

05/11/2018: I’m genuinely sorry for disappearing for so long. However, over the last few months I have completed my second degree, qualified as an ODP, moved back home, got a job, been to Japan, got my first flat, moved out again, and started work. As much as I love writing, I simply haven’t had the time to do more than odd snippets. I haven’t given up on any of my incomplete fics, especially ‘Strange Visitors’ and ‘To Be A Master’, but it might take some time while I get settled. Thank you for all the support, it really does mean the world to me.
12/04/2017: Apologies for the delay with 'Strange Visitors'. I've hit a bit of a block with the next chapter, and pressures at work and at home haven't been helping, so I'm concentrating on a few other projects for a little while. It's not being abandoned, but it may take some time. Thank you for your patience.
23/06/2015: I have changed my pen-name from Isilarma to Izzyaro.
21/06/2015: I suppose I should explain where I've been for the past year and a half. During my final year at university I developed severe depression and anxiety. My OCD also worsened to the point to the point of becoming a serious problem. Much as I wanted to I was barely able to concentrate on my studies, let alone my stories. I graduated last July, somehow, and promptly had a nervous breakdown, the first of three. I'm doing better now, thanks to a new doctor and new medication, and I'm slowly getting back into writing again. I just wanted to say thank you so much to all the messages of concern and support I've received over the past months. It means a lot to me, and I'm so grateful to have such wonderful, kind followers. I will be continuing 'Strange Visitors', and maybe some other things, very soon.

To everyone who thinks I’ve made Ash an idiot in ’To Be A Master’:
I’d like to take this opportunity to remind you that Ash in the Original Series was an absolute moron. He didn’t know that he had to weaken a Pokémon before trying to catch it, didn’t know what his Trainer License was despite getting it the same day, didn’t know that he needed Gym Badges to enter the Pokémon League, didn’t know anything about type advantage, and tried to take on a Rock Gym with Bug, Flying, and Electric Pokémon.
I like Smart!Ash fics as much as the next person, but that isn’t canon and its not the story I’m writing. Ash won’t be so naïve forever, thanks to a wonderful device known as character development, but it isn’t going to happen overnight.

Stephen Wright: If toast always lands butter-side down, and cats always land on their feet, what happens if you strap toast on the back of a cat and drop it?
Winston Churchill: Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened.
There has been no great talent without an element of madness.
Excuse me. Have you seen my sanity? I think I've lost it...
