Author has written 5 stories for Pokémon.

Hello everyone! Regarding "The Leader's Origin," I have scraped what is currently here and decided to begin rewriting it as a new story. I realized how many opportunities I missed when I wrote the first one, and decided that the only way I would ever find enough inspiration to finish it is by rewriting it. I'm so exciting. My motivation has come back in full, and I think this will be a success. Of course, you can read my full detailed description further explaining why I'm doing this in the "old" Leader's Origin story, as it is the remaining chapter. Thank you for understanding.

Little bit about me: I am nineteen, I attend a really cool university, my major is media and communications, and I double-minor in creative writing and photography (if you'd like to view my photography portfolio, send me a PM!). I'm part of the Fine Arts Honors College, and really proud of it. I've written my whole life, and it was this craft that I've honed that allowed me to be part of the Honors College. Otherwise, I'm incredibly average.

The dream is to become a published author. I love writing Fanfiction and everything about this website that allows aspiring authors, like myself, to have an outlet for their work, and one that actually allows their work to be read. I've learned a lot from this site that has helped better my writing, and for that, I'm really thankful. Critiquing reviews fuel my ambitions, so keep them coming. Any feedback is welcomed with opened arms, and I usually reply through PM. Granted, if you review my firstborn "The Champion's Beginning" (Cynthia's trainer story) I might not reply because I am well aware of the shenanigans that is that story. It's a hot mess, but I'm insanely proud of it. That was the first time I wrote a novel-sized story. I never gave up on it, and I wrote it every day with a passion and drive until it's completion. After that story I wrote "Snake Eyes," which is Champion Lea's (my OC from "TCB") story. It's my first and only villain story, and I'm proud of that hot mess, too. I proved to myself that I could write a story from a villain's perspective, yet have people sympathize with the villain. Even though the writing quality is rough, I'm proud of the story and proud I successfully did what I set out to do. Now I'm writing the third story of my little saga, Volkner's part in all of this. (The Leader's Origin) I'm proud of this one as well, even though it's sooooo stubborn sometimes. It's coming together not as I planned, but I have grown to love it.

On the side I write a series of Cynthia one-shots called "Cynthia's Letters" that ties in with the story I've crafted. I try new styles and new genres, and I'm really happy with how they've come out!

I have many more stories planned. After The Leader's Origin, I plan on writing The Champion's Beginning official sequel and the ending to my saga, "Losing My Ground." I'm working on a lot of non-Fanfiction as well. I'm so excited for what's to come. Take a peek at my work if you're interested, it means the world to me. Thank you for reading.

Affectionately,

One Dapper Mudkip

Unintended Complications by Espeonage Espeon reviews
That day... It was supposed to be normal. It was supposed to let me live my life in peace. It was not supposed to kill Mew. It was not supposed to kill me. It was never supposed to turn me into a Pokemon to atone for a crime I did not commit; atone for the crime of killing Mew. That day truly had Unintended Complications. I certainly didn't intend for all this to happen.

A Chosen Few by PhoenixLyric reviews
AU- A girl from a destroyed village. A boy from a big city. They have nothing in common except the fact that they've been chosen by two of the most powerful Legendaries to prevent Sinnoh's corrupt government from imploding and causing massive damage to the entire Pokémon world. The problem? They're complete and total opposites... I don't own Pokémon. T for safety. Hiatus, for now.

The Leader's Origin reviews
I was an aspiring trainer with my best friend Rayne by my side. We were inseparable until we were tragically torn apart, but that was before the deadly guard force of Callousen enveloped my life in ways I'll never forget. Soon, I learned that Sunyshore wasn't the place I needed to escape from, but it was too late. I was trapped, but ready to face my boss, Champion Lea.

One-shots. Newest addition: {Ch. 3, Safe} "We don't always get what we want," she whispers. His face fills with sorrow, and he runs his thumb across her cheek, staring at her deeply, like this was the last time he would ever get to look at her like this. Maybe it would be.

Snake Eyes reviews
"Just roll the dice. What's the worst that could happen?" Lea knew better; there is no luck and chance. That wasn't the way his dad taught him. You make your own luck. But when something unnatural starts telling him differently, he doesn't know what he believes. He vies for top of the food-chain, doing whatever it takes even if it means being directed to the edge of sanity. Pre-D/P

The Champion's Beginning reviews
Cynthia never wanted to become a trainer, but she left on a journey much bigger than herself: to become Sinnoh League Champion. When there were sudden attacks on helpless towns, a current, suspicious champion who Cynthia couldn't trust, and an unhelpful "presence" watching her every move; she had Sinnoh resting on her shoulders. Rated T for violence and dark themes.
