Ah, hello! I'm Gentleman Xerneas. Lovely to meet you, unidentified visitor!
I'm a huge fan of both Pokemon and Touhou, and thus I read and study a lot about both of them. Recently I've begun to lose interest in Touhou, so my activity is shifting more towards the Pokemon community.
As you might be able to tell from my new profile picture, recently I've gotten into a small indie game that recently came out called Five Nights At Freddy's. Who knew such a small title would end up being so popular! I've never written a horror themed story before and most of the "scary" parts of the Unova guide are laughable, but I would like to write a story for it if I ever get the time.
I'm a very friendly, kind are carefree person, who likes to take it easy and live life one day at a time. I like to help other people improve with their stories, but I don't normally read or review other stories, and for good reason. Whenever I read a story each review I have the tendency to leave massive walls of text giving an analysis about the chapter and explaining what was good about it, what was bad, and what could have been improved. It could almost be called free beta-reading. If you're going to bother reviewing someone's story, then you might as well put all your effort in and help them, even if it means being blunt. That's the motto I review by.
I don't have the time to go to so much effort, so I just don't bother most of the time.
Currently the only story that I'm working on is Five Weeks At Freddy's. What started off as a small story to write for fun in my spare time ended up snow-balling into my most popular story yet. The reason that I'm working on this story so much is because of the amount of attention and appreciation it gets from my dear readers, and so long as it continues to entertain people I'm going to continue writing it.
I'm really looking forward to watching this story grow and develop over time and I'm looking forward to sharing that experience with my readers too. It's always so entertaining to see all the theories my readers come up, how they interpret things and how and why they love this story. It's definitely the most rewarding part of writing this.
I have a few interests and hobbies, but they change rather frequently. Some of my favourite things are the following:
Pokemon: I'm a huge Pokemon fan! I've been a fan since Red and Blue first came out, I remember fondly the huge hype everyone at school had when we first discovered Mew! Shortly after Crystal was released I fell out of the Pokemon fandom for a few years, but by the time Platinum came out I rejoined. Generation V is my favourite generation, and I think Unova is the best thing that has ever happened to Pokemon. Nearly all of my favourite Pokemon come from Unova.
Japanese Culture: I'm currently enrolled in the first year of a Bachelor's Degree in Japanese, and It's the best fun I've had in ages! I've always loved Japanese culture, philosophy, so learning about it every day is great. Japan has two 'faces' as you could put it, the traditional side, and the modern side. I love both of these and it's awesome to see that Japan has maintained it's ancient history within this rapidly modernizing world. Additionally, Japanese people make really cool friends, even if communication can be strained sometimes.
Writing: Hah, I wouldn't be here if I didn't, right? Even as a young boy, I've loved writing all sorts of stories. The freedom and creativity that writing grants you is simply astounding, plus it allows you to entertain other people, something else I love! It's a shame I don't have the spare time to write as much as I want to.
If you have any questions or want to say hi you're more than welcome to send me a PM, just be aware that I may not respond immediately. I still have about a billion unread PMs glaring at me from my inbox already.
"Do I have permission to write my own guide in the same style as yours?"
No, you do not. I wrote the Unova guide because it was a unique concept and I want it to stay that way. You can write your own guides or whatever so long as they aren't blatant copies of my own works, however.
"Will you be working on other regions after finishing the Unova guide?"
For god's sake YES. When the Unova guide is done with I'll start work on the Kalos guide. Please stop asking me this question, I've already answered it several times in both Author's Notes within the guide and PMs and I'm sick of being asked about it. Any PMs asking me this will be ignored.
"Why don't you update the guide anymore? I've been waiting for ages!"
I understand how you feel and I'm sorry for not updating enough. Since a majority of my readers are silent I don't know how many people are waiting on an update, but I sympathise with my regular reviewers who I know really like the guide. But, I have a life of my own to live and I can't spend it all in front of the computer writing stories. I have a house to maintain, college classes to attend and friendships to uphold. Additionally, spending too much time working on the guide ends up making it a chore, rather than something I enjoy doing, and when that happens the quality of the guide ends up declining as I force myself to sit there and do it against my will.
"What happened to Legendary Origins and Guidance?"
They've been discontinued indefinitely. While further chapters are still a possibility, right now I don't have the time or inclination to work on them.
"Why did you attack Ask-Gentleman-Xerneas on Tumblr?"
A few people have attacked me over this on both this site and and other sites, usually mixed in with insults and threats of violence. So to put and end to it, I'm going to explain the whole situation to put an end to any more questions regarding this situation.
Initially, a few people came to me asking questions about my tumblr, to which I replied that I have no such thing. Upon investigation I discovered that someone had make a Tumblr rp blog using my name. I asked my readers both on my profile and in a guide chapter to let me know if they knew anything about the situation.
From that point onwards I had NOTHING to do with the situation, and it wasn't until I received some very angry PMs that I found out that something had happened. By that time it seems that the blog has been taken down so I don't know what happened, but it seems as though prior to that people were attacking the blog's creator. As for why the blog is gone, whether or not the creator took it down themselves or it was forcibly removed, I don't know.
I'm not going to condemn or blame those people for what they did, as they were simply trying to help me and it was my fault for addressing the blog in the first place. But it's damn shame that blog is gone, as the artist was pretty good and it seems that they were well-liked in the Tumblr Pokemon rp community.
With all that explained, please don't blame me for anything I didn't do.
