Author has written 34 stories for Pokémon.
I know, I know, you're all falling off your seats now, if I do in fact have anyone left still reading this. There was a time I logged into this site every day. Now I'm lucky if I do it once a month. However, I do still write, it's just not really about Pokemon anymore. I have been getting reviews and PMs and emails begging me to return to AAML fics and I truly wish I had the passion to do it like I used to. But the honest truth is I just don't have the drive anymore. I'm going to attempt to break into a proper writing career at some stage. Things have changed so much though.
I was 15 when I started on this site, still in high school, not caring about high school lol and watching/taping/writing Pokemon every day. Now I'm nearly 25, working in the aviation industry, loving it to bits and I've moved cities. And I very rarely watch Pokemon anymore. It really got bad after Misty left. That might be the biased AAML side of me coming out haha but honestly, the whole thing just went so downhill after that. And WTF was up with them changing the voices?! Every time I watch it I cringe, Ash just sounds so warped. Plus I hate his new hat lol.
So all in all, I really want to thank all of you for your amazing support and words of advice/adoration/criticism over the last decade or so. Writing Pokemon and this site really got me through some godawful teenage years. As an adult though, finding the time and motivation has been a struggle. I really hope I can at least continue where I left on in some aspects but I'm going to be realistic and say that it probably won't happen. I'm not making any promises. I look back and wonder how I actually did it, how I sat down and wrote thousands and thousands of words that I was (and still am) immensely proud of. And a lot of it was you guys, commenting and helping me along. I truly believe that as a result of being here and writing all the time that my writing has developed beyond what it ever could have with just school alone. (I ended up being in the top 1 for New Zealand, Australia and Asia for a writing competition when I was 16...something I would never dreamed of achieving!)
Once again, thank you again everyone, feel free to drop me a line and I'll do my best to reply. AAML forever!! xoxo
