Author has written 1 story for Pokémon.

Current chapter progress: Chapter XXXII is being written.

Update (14/06/2022): A combination of difficult University exams, jobseeking, and other real-life matters have meant a pause in writing for much of the first half of 2022. As of June, I have significantly more free time and have resumed writing. I am aiming for a new chapter release by the end of August.

I'm a long time Pokémon fan, having played the main games ever since Diamond & Pearl were released. I love literature and poetry (Thank the italian school system for that!), which is part of the reason that I have decided to start writing my own fanfiction.

My favourite pokémon of all time has to be Charmeleon. Other than having a very cool design, I like it the most because it's the pokémon that best represents adolescence and change—it's also a dragon with fire on its tail, and that's just too cool to ignore.

I am open to a review-for-review policy. We're all learning, and as such I'll be glad to help you in return.

My Stories

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rebirth

Being a long time fan of the PMD series, along with reading some amazing works linked at the end, I decided to start my own story based in the PMD world. While I am very passionate and devote a lot of time to writing this, it's inevitably going to have some flaws. Therefore, feedback is very much appreciated. If you want to drop a review, share your opinions, or simply have a chat then feel free to send me a PM! I'd be delighted to read it.

I should warn you though, that although this fiction is currently rated T, it is possible for it to be raised to M in the future should the need arise, and I do not advocate for inserting trigger warnings at the beginning of chapters. This story may or may not include:

Dark themes;


Gore (Light=T; Heavy=M);

Foul language;

Adult themes (M);

While some people might frown upon one or more items on the list, I personally think that they provide the author with much more freedom to express himself, along with enhancing the immersion and the realism of a story. If these themes turn you away, I hereby promise that I will never use any of the items listed above if they do not meet the following requirements (this goes especially for the last one):

1. They are written to the best of my abilities.

2. They fit in the context provided by the story (for example: characters will not cuss at any given occasion. They will however when it makes sense for them to, like for example in a tense situation or when reacting to pain.)

3. They contribute to/further the plot in some way or another.

If you were wondering, the cover art was drawn by the unquestionably kind Mokka-Quill, whom you can find on deviantart.

Project Ilos (Mass Effect)

A project I've considered doing as soon as I finish Rebirth and before my transition to original fiction.

Synopsis: "The Reapers have won. Despite the galaxy's best efforts, the Victory Fleet is now but a debris field orbiting a cannibalised Earth. Hundreds of years later, however, after all advanced life seemingly ceased to exist, a signal starts broadcasting from a derelict station at the fringes of the galaxy."

With that said and done, I hope you enjoy my works!

Credit goes to MadderJacker, Namohysip, and UnholyPens for dedicating their time and effort to beta read my story.

P.S. If you're looking for a good read, check out Shadow by Laroid, and PMD: Overthrown by KnightFall66! They are very entertaining and professionally written stories, along with being the works that inspired me to grab a pen (or keyboard in this case) and start writing.

The battle for Shiganshina was won and the Survey Corps secured custody of the Colossal Titan.
