Author has written 9 stories for Pokémon, Cave Story, Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, and Minecraft.
Hello, everyone. Here's some basics:
Name: Not telling.
Age: Over 0.
Weight: Guess. On second thought, don't.
Hmm... Everything here is generic. That's the 5th dimension for you!
Specialshipping is canon!(first paragraph, last sentence)
Excitement! Excitement! They've been a couple ever since Kyogre/Groudon!
That is all.
Okay... This one is for flamers.
Recently, I received an e-mail that there was an update for the story A Miscellaneous Tale of Night and Day by Starran. For those who do not know, this is a story that is extremely popular in the Pokemon section. Just 24 chapters, yet over 700 reviews as of right now.
The update was not a new chapter, but a message of defiance for flamers.
(Can be found here: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6692084/28/A_Miscellaneous_Tale_of_Night_and_Day)
Apparently the situation was that someone who decided it would be fun to flame her story got a freaking forum to get a whole bunch of other people to do it. In one of the stupidest cases of follow the leader I've ever seen, they apparently did.
Authors try to take pride in their work. Positive, supportive reviews are wonderful. Neutral, critical reviews are even better sometimes, even if they're not what you expect. Purely negative reviews with no reasons or explanations can be hurtful to most authors.
Now, flamers are not especially effective against me, because I find them hilarious. I laugh at their narrow, ridiculous, sometimes illogical comments.
However, most authors have some sort of emotional tie to their work that makes them feel bad, despite the insanity of such comments.
So, to all flamers: I don't care if you flame my stuff. Go ahead, amuse me with your short-sighted, ludicrous, grammatically-challenged foolspeak. But leave the other authors alone.
And to all authors, nay, to all who make fiction: Join me as we laugh at those sad, silly little people that get pleasant feelings from hate. You could even put it on your profile: I laugh at flamers.
This one is for an anonymous person who reviewed.
This particular person asked me to write a lemon.
As entertained by this review as I was, I do not do lemons.
I will never do lemons.
Why? Because there's little point to them. I can sum up every lemon--no matter the characters, no matter the plot, no matter the world it's set in--in five words: And then they had sex.
There's no real advancement, no real character development, nothing. There's definitely no entertainment, other than for a couple of perverts. You might as well watch porn.
They did the deed. It doesn't need to be explicitly scrawled across the screen.
So, for that one reviewer and all others hoping I try that 'genre' next, no. Please do not even ask.
Recently, I posted a story called "Ask Arceus," a story that was basically a "Truth or Dare..." but for the God of Pokemon. People would come up with any situation in the games or the manga, and I would expand upon it... devising a story from as little as three words, if needed.
I had noticed other people doing similar things with more minor characters in Pokemon and other forms of media as well. I noticed how entertaining it was, and even participated a few times myself. I always wanted to make one, but never had the inspiration. Once I came up with the concept, I thought people would enjoy and have fun with it.
I was wrong.
A lot of people would just do it and enjoy it without a second thought. However, as it turns out, such a thing is actually against the rules. Any fic that is "interactive" is not allowed on fanfiction.net. I had exactly four reviews before I took the story off. Three of them pointed out my mistake and threatened reporting (which was justified, considering).
Now, my story would perhaps be the most obvious example of Rule #5 under "entries not allowed": Any form of interactive entry: choose your adventure, second person/you based, Q&As, and etc. because of the extremities I reached for. However, any other form of truth/dare or story purely based on suggestions is also against the rules of Fanfiction.net. Use discretion while posting. Read the Rules and Guidelines beforehand.
Information About Me
Webcomics I enjoy: Homestuck, Misfile, Questionable Content, Gunerkrigg Court, El Goonish Shive, Order of the Stick, CtrlAltDel, Dominic Deegan: Oracle for Hire.
Manga I enjoy: Fullmetal Alchemist, Pokemon Special (Adventures), D.N.Angel, Soul Eater, History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi, Nisekoi.
Other things I enjoy: Cave Story, Minecraft, awesome music, Pokemon games, and reading.
I work on stuff infrequently, and only when I am inspired. Have patience. My stuff comes out approximately whenever I feel like it.
I will not do a 'It was all just a dream' sequence without putting in some surreal hints. No dream I've ever had was realistic.
Criticism is welcomed. Especially neutrally-toned criticism.
Note to those who hate bad attitudes: I will not whine about reviews, nor will I complain about my own stuff. This stuff is written for my enjoyment and yours. Enjoy.
Shipping List: (Likes and Dislikes)
Anything with Ash doesn't make any sense, but that doesn't mean we can't try...
Ugh... This is the same person who obviously can't remember his own age...
Despite there being enough episodes (over 200, with implied month-long breaks in between some of them), Ash still thinks he's ten (he should be at least 13, if not older).
Iris probably has the best chance with him, though.
Negaishipping: Ash and Iris- I don't know all that much, as Ash is so dumb that I can't bear to watch many episodes, but from what I have seen, this is Ash's best bet... until they replace Iris with someone else. Iris is very energetic.
Palletshipping: Ash and Gary- AAK! Get the image out of my brain!
Pokeshipping: Ash and Misty- Hmm... the original ship.
Advanceshipping: Ash and May- I don't know May well enough to talk about this one.
Rocketshipping: Jesse and James- Let's point out the obvious pairing! It'll be fun! (sarcasm) I agree with Pokemopolis.
Kidshipping: Molly Hale and Max- This is an excellent ship. Molly is sweet and Max is... Max. That, and it doesn't have Ash.
Gymshipping: Brock and Misty- Brock doesn't have the mindset for a romantic relationship. It's true.
Brockshipping: Brock and any girl- Yes, that's fairly accurate.
Pearlshipping: Ash and Dawn- Same with Advanceshipping. I don't know... although, you have to take into account that Dawn wears short skirts and May doesn't. Then again, I suppose it doesn't matter- Ash is oblivious either way.
Explodeshipping: Brock and Pineco: Die, Brock, Die! I'm having too much fun.
It is impossible to get any hints from these, so I don't even try, although I do use them.
A few are worth mentioning only for laughs:
Wehavebeenherebeforeshipping: Ethan and the entire population of Pallet Town
Technologyisamazingshipping: Fat Guy who thinks technology is amazing (Pallet Town) and Fat Guy who thinks technology is amazing (New Bark Town)
Infiniterarecandyshipping: Old man (Viridian City) and Missingno.
Happymealtoyshipping: N and Darumaka
Pokemon Special (Pokemon Adventures) (Blue's the girl, Green is the boy.)
Specialshipping: Red and Yellow- This is my favorite couple... Red is fairly oblivious, but... THIS HAS BEEN CANON SINCE 2005.
Originalshipping: Red and Green- See the anime reaction for Palletshipping.
Oldrivalshipping: Blue and Green- Heh? Am I missing something? This is not a relationship. The only 'hint' was Blue saying, "Bing! Cute male in sights!" in Red chapter. 'Pesky/annoying/noisy woman' is not a term of endearment. And Blue seems to be a notorious flirt, or at least a matchmaker.
Luckyshipping: Red and Blue- Um... if this were ever possible, it ended before the raid on Team Rocket Headquarters, or whenever Blue first thought about Red and Yellow together.
Feelingshipping: Green and Yellow- Huh... I never knew getting trained in the desert, getting attacked by Primeapes, and then almost never talking with each other was love. Besides, even if Green thought that way, Yellow is too smitten with Red.
Grantedshipping: Lance and Yellow- I'll say this slowly. They... are... enemies.
Mangapokeshipping: Red and Misty- It just doesn't... click.
Wristshipping: Blue and Sabrina- Ha ha, very funny.
Mangaquestshipping: Gold and Crystal- I don't know if this is real or not, but it is fun. Gold flirts with a nearby woman, and Crys kicks the crap out of him. I like it.
Preciousmetalshipping: Gold and Silver- Right... I'm supposed to believe that a popular kid, overflowing with Pokemon, rabid about girls... falls in love with the son of Giovanni? That doesn't work, people.
Specialjewelshipping: Silver and Crystal- No hints exist in the manga, even though they are just similar enough for this to be possible. I don't like it personally, but I do have to admit that it's possible.
Buttshipping: Gold and Blue- This wasn't a ship. This was Gold's hand going where no hand had gone before.
Ambershipping: Gold and Yellow- Every fiber of my being rejects this ship. Gold is a womanizer, and Yellow is so innocent.
Chosenshipping: Silver and Blue- Hmm... A more obvious choice than Green, but still... Silver is overprotective and unromantic.
Viridianshipping: Silver and Yellow- No. It wouldn't work. Silver and Yellow... well, they're not opposites, and they're not similar. The chemistry between them is nonexistent.
Franticshipping: Ruby and Sapphire- It's canon. If only Ruby would remember or stop pretending to have forgot. I liked the development, and then BAM! They now have to start from scratch. I say Sapphire should beat him.
Commonershipping: Diamond and Platinum- Hmm... Knowledge goes best with emotion, and Dia has better sense than Pearl. However, for whatever reason, he always seems to come second-best to his manzai partner.
Haughtyshipping: Pearl and Platinum- Pearl is too willful for this to work. He doesn't understand Platinum well enough to even know what she wants. Then again, once Pearl wants something, he'll eventually get it. (such willpower! Da da da da!)
Mangaadvanceshipping: Red and Sapphire- Anyone who supports this probably has watched too many anime episodes and not read enough manga.
Fatherlyshipping: Falkner and Janine- Sure, why not?
Confusemeshipping: Yellow and Bugsy- It fails- they've never met. However... The idea is fricking hilarious!
Psychoshipping: Red and Sabrina- He almost saw her naked. That was it, and he did the natural boy thing (as opposed to the pervert thing): he turned his back.
Mistakeshipping: Wanda and Ruby- Um... Wanda's married...
Ragingegomaniacshipping: Eusine... and himself- I don't think he really belongs with anyone.
Ouchshipping: Skitty and Wailord- Heeheehee...
Gracefulshipping: Winona and Wallace- Yep, it passes. It's canon.
Antagonistshipping: Sabrina and Lt. Surge- I see no reason why not.
Pikachuchushipping: Pika and Chuchu- Aww... that's so cute. I think we all agree that Pikachus in love are cute.
Teashipping: Bill and Daisy- Despite how minor this one seems, it's still... nice. It's a feel-good ship.
These are just the main ones I think are worth commenting on. Full list here:
You will need to use Ctrl-F.
Pandashipping: Mei and Alphonse- Fairly obvious, and cute.

Me on My Stories:
I have nine as of now.
The Perceptionist: This is my first story. It has nearly all of the dexholders in it and my Original Character Nil. It is complete.
A.R.C.: This story is temporarily on hold. My other stories are more interesting to me right now. My second story, a continuation of Cave Story that occurs ten years afterwards. Contains the Original Character Arc.
Family Issues: Aftermath: The sequel to The Perceptionist. After the first story, I wondered: what else could I do? Has Nil in it, and Iris, too. It is complete.
Action Replay: When I got one of these devices, I put it in and started conquering everything. However, it was very boring. This story shows what it looks like in-game, albeit more exciting. It is complete.
The Perceptionist Oneshots: These are a series of oneshots that take place after Family Issues: Aftermath. Basically me having fun with the characters and putting in any of my ideas.
Ouch: Pokemon is crazy sometimes. This is one of those instances. You'd think Game Freak would know better...
Halloween: This a oneshot crossover between the episode "Halloween" of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Pokemon Special. Just something I thought would be funny.
True Strength: A more serious story than the others. It was initially inspired by avrilkesha92's story "Gold's Clothes."
All That Remains: Minecraft is freaking awesome. All I needed to write about it was something... unique. And I believe I found it.
