Platrium's Library: (Added: 10/02/2020)
The Amazing Race Pokémon 1 (2013-2014)
First story I wrote and completed! 12 Pokémon teams of 2 race around worlds for 1 million pokédollars. Worlds visited include those from Pokémon and Mario along with original locations. Quality is inferior as it was my first story ever.
The Amazing Race Pokémon 2 (2014-2015)
A second season where another 12 Pokémon teams of 2 race around worlds for 1 million pokédollars. Worlds visited include those from Pokémon, Mario, and Kirby, along with original locations. Improvements were made as this was my second run.
The Amazing Race Pokémon 3 (2016, 2019-present)
A third season where another 12 Pokémon teams of 2 race around worlds for 1 million pokédollars. Worlds visited include those from Pokémon and Mario along with original locations. More improvements were made, but the story experienced a hiatus in favor of focusing on Cards of Mortality.
Toadstool Academy (2014-2015; indefinite hiatus)
An original idea in which being in school is like a gameshow, but features characters from the Mario universe. Honestly, this story needs a reboot. Didn't want to delete it, but might not continue it anymore.
Cards of Mortality: The 140th Hunger Games (2016-2020)
First story that involves SYOT, submitting your own tributes. A Hunger Games AU wherein the Hunger Games continue beyond the 75th. For the 140th Hunger Games, Capitolites may apply to be a stuntperson or guardian in the arena, risking their lives and playing their cards of mortality in order to win 1 million dollars.
The 141st Hunger Games: Playing with Capitalism (2020-present)
Second story that is SYOT in nature. Spinoff and sequel to Cards of Mortality, due to a format change focusing on behind the scenes but following the same timeline after Cards of Mortality. For the 141st Hunger Games, tributes and sponsors will be playing with capitalism with the sponsors having their shops featured in the mall arena.

Profile & Biography: (Last updated: 04/03/2021)
What is the origin to your username? Platrium (pronounced: play-three-um) came from me playing around with the word platinum, which I was told is more valuable than gold. Around the same time as that, Pokémon Platinum was being announced, so my username was also inspired from the game itself, which I wholly enjoyed.
Do you have a nickname? Platrium is fine. A lot of people I know call me Plat. I can go by Platinum too but that's more common, haha.
What is your favorite color? ORANGE! Back when I was a toddler, I'd see light from the sunset, and I thought it was the most beautiful color I've ever seen. :D
Which animal best represents you? A flying fox! People's first impression of me is usually that I'm smart, and I always keep my in the clouds. :3
What is your MBTI? I am an INTJ, which means I’m very introverted, I think idealistically, I base a lot of decisions on logic and objectivity, and I am a detailed and organized individual. :)
And your Enneagram? I am a 5w6, which means I’m a logical person seeking knowledge, and while I do seek some sense of individualism, I am instinctively prioritizing my security, as I am quite a paranoid person. XD
How can you describe your Big 5 (OCEAN) personality? My Openness is very high, which means I’m creative, adventurous, and intellectual. My conscientiousness is above average, which means my determination and self-discipline is pretty good. My extroversion is very low, which means I prefer my own presence more than the presence of others. My Agreeableness is somewhere in the middle, which means I can be cooperative and selfless at certain times, but not all the time. My neuroticism is above average, as I do experience quite a dose of anxiety.
Can you tell us about your alignment? Well, I took the test 3 times and got chaotic evil, which is hard to believe even for the people who know me. I changed my context of community from local community to Internet communities I’m active in, and I’m somewhere between a true neutral, a chaotic neutral, and a chaotic evil. Well, it’s not exact, but between those 3, I guess I’ll take it. XD
What is your favorite TV show? I love watching The Amazing Race! I started seeing it when I was 4 or 5, in the middle of Season 3, when my mom was watching it. I can say I've watched every season in the US, Australian, and Philippine versions, although I haven't rewatched some to remember everything. I love the concept of race, in which there's a reward for finishing first and a consequence for finishing last, but the best part about it is its unpredictability. A team that is dominating can be the next one out for the craziest reasons, and an underdog just has a good enough chance to win. It's very good game design! I love the game itself, but there's something about the show that's more than just a game. You get to see the world around you and the different cultures they visit. I love a good adventure, and The Amazing Race brings this adventure closer to me than ever. :D
How about your favorite video game? I love unpredictable racing, and aside from The Amazing Race, I love Mario Kart for that same reason as well! I may not necessarily be good at it, but seeing racers rise and drop placements is so fascinating. I just love it! Also similar to The Amazing Race, you get to see different fantasy worlds that you're racing in. I love adventure, and the fantasy world aspect of it is simply amazing! :D Btw, I also love the soundtrack!
You got to have a favorite book, don't you? Of course! I love Herbert George Wells' The Time Machine! Admittedly, I'm not a heavy reader and this was a thing required from school, but I just enjoy indulging myself in science fiction, like time travel.
Wait. You have a favorite TV show, but what about a favorite movie? Can I name 2? XD Let me bring you… Wreck-It Ralph, both the original and the sequel. The movie is centered around someone who is supposedly a villain, who wants to make achievements like video game protagonists do. I love video games, and the setting placed around it makes it really appealing to me. The addition of Sugar Rush being reminiscent to Mario Kart greatly adds to that appeal. There were a lot of hilarious yet wholesome moments all throughout both movies. The sequel has so many puns and references, and I love puns because they're usually the most harmless jokes, and I love references too because it links to certain things that have happened in the past. I find it all so cool – the adventure, the fantasy, the video game theme, the race in it, the clever puns, the spectacular references. That's why it's my favorite set of movies of all-time! :D
Tell us more about your background! I took up a bachelor’s degree in computer science, because I want to make games and I was led to that direction. I only learned later on how the degree isn’t necessarily the path I really wanted, but I still finished it with a particular interest in computer graphics. I still want to make games, and I guess that’s what I’m doing here on this site. I write about games, made by me, played by original characters. It’s fun to make a game and give it your own twists! :D I really hope one day that I get to make an original game of my own, whether it’s a video game or a tabletop game or even a gameshow.
What are your hobbies? I’m an artist! I love art! I do a lot of 3D modeling. My alternate response is usually origami, because making something out of a folded sheet of paper is cool too! I like creating stuff out of nothing. I can draw, and I’m particularly interested in drawing maps and backgrounds. Making characters is a struggle though, 2D or 3D. If I’m not making visual art, I’m here writing about games! :)
Name me your fandoms! Pokémon, The Amazing Race, Super Mario, Kirby, Undertale, Stranger Things, The Hunger Games, Rick & Morty, Food Fantasy, Survivor, The Challenge, Legend of Zelda, Land of the Lustrous, and perhaps some others I might have forgotten.
Favorite Pokémon type? It used to be psychic because of the intellectual association to it, haha. I am more inclined to say ghost as I am practically invisible sometimes while also feeling dead occasionally, haha!
Favorite Pokémon trainer class? Gym leader! They’re pretty cool to look up to – they have a specialty, and they award worthy challengers with a badge! Imagine how many trainers they have seen grown, and I think that’s cool!
Favorite Pokémon? Past me would say Gallade, because he looks so cool! Now, I would say Eevee, because not only is it cute crossed over to two of my favorite animals (rabbit and fox), but in a philosophical sense, it has so many possible choices in its life. I desire that sense of freedom.
Favorite country? New Zealand! I’ve never been there but I want to someday. I know it is isolated and they say it’s like a different world out there!
Hunger Games district? District 3! I am a computer science graduate so it’s only fitting for me to like the district centered around technology.
Divergent faction? Erudite.
Hogwarts House? Ravenclaw.
Inside Out emotion? Fear.
Undertale SOUL? Patience.
Sun zodiac? Gemini.
Moon zodiac? Aquarius.
Rising zodiac? Leo.
Chinese zodiac? Ox.
Favorite book, film, and game genre? Adventure!
Musical genre? My favorite is video game music. Second to that would be indie.
Favorite musical artists? Fun., P!nk, Florence & The Machine, Lights, Paramore, Coldplay
Virtue desired the most? Power, but mainly for freedom. With power comes freedom.
Virtue valued the most? Respect.
3 words to describe yourself? Creative, strategic, patient.

My Original Characters from fanfics about the Hunger Games (SYOT): (Last updated: 04/03/2021)
I've read a lot of SYOT stories, and I've been submitting since 2014. If you wanna know which characters are mine, you're in the right section of the profile!
For less clutter on my profile page, the link to my SYOT portfolio (spreadsheet) is over here: goo. gl/UqRRnp
You may notice some categories and details in the portfolio:
Tributes: This section is like the Comprehensive section, except it separates the non-tribute characters for statistical purposes.
All-Stars Tributes: This section is exclusively for tributes who were resubmitted from existing stories to be given another chance, specific to the story's theme.
Tribute Stats: This section shows my statistics for submitted tributes, which can show how many tributes I have:
Non-Competitors: It doesn't always have to be about tributes, right? I have submitted non-tributes too!
Missing: A note to myself on what I need for a full collection of something statistical.
Dataset: It's a bunch of yeses and nos if a character of mine falls under a certain type or category, or otherwise.
Requests: A page for my unsubmitted tribute ideas, including collab ideas we can work on together!
06/17/2021 Update: It seems that I am on the road to retirement for my SYOT submission career. If I've talked to you about me submitting to your current or future story, your story will be one of the last stories I'm submitting to. However, if you are gonna send me a PM asking me to submit to your story, I unfortunately will not be able to submit to you anymore. :( That said, I can still help you by advertising your story to other active submitters. :) It's been a blast, but all good things must come to an end. Thank you for the fun times!
Sometimes, I would receive requests from fellow SYOT authors asking me to submit to their stories. For that reason, I might as well state my preferences:
• I like younger tributes. I submitted, submit, and will submit a lot of 12-year-olds. Sometimes 13 or 14 works too. I'm for age diversity!
I've won the SYOT Awards 2K17! as Most Creative Author and Best Character Creator. :D So if you need a tribute, don't hesitate to send me a PM, and you're promised to get a creative character from me. ;)
