In-Progress Story

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Guiding Light
Shane is ecstatic to wake up and find he's become a Vulpix, even if he doesn't understand why he's got white fur. With all of his memories intact, he thinks he's pretty hot stuff. But all it takes is a mysterious force turning the Pokémon around him into vicious monsters for him to realize just how far in over his head he is. Can he put aside his ego, and his preconceived notions about being an explorer, to work with his partners and take down the dark powers threatening to rip the fabric of reality apart?

This is a pet project of mine that I'd started outlining in December of 2016, first posted elsewhere on August 2nd, 2017, and uploaded here starting in October of 2017. Essentially, it's a Gen VII-centric story, that looks to apply some of the big concepts (Z-Moves, Alolan forms, Totem Pokémon, and all things Ultra Space) to the world of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon. I've been having a lot of fun with it so far, especially since it sadly looks like we won't be getting a Gen VII installment of PMD.

The story is episodic in nature. Think of an episode like an anime arc or, better yet, a story chapter in the PMD games. For anyone interested in reading, I suggest pacing yourself and using the episodes as potential starting/stopping points as you're reading. Of course, if you're super-motivated and want to binge the whole story, go right ahead. Everyone's schedules and levels of free time are different, after all. If you do give it a read, let me know what you think. Any feedback's more than welcome and I try to reply to all reviews I get, even from guest accounts.

Just for Fun:

A Q&A was done with the cast of the story back in April of 2018. I can't place it in the actual fic, since it goes against the site's rules and I don't want the story to be taken down. However, you can view an archived version on the Serebii forums.

Ashes of the Past by Saphroneth reviews
Time travel, based on the Anime. So, the world ended. That's bad news. Who best to get to fix it? Well, there is this guy with a track record in world saving... Not entirely serious. T rating may be overdoing it.

Shattered Selves by ShadowVulpi reviews
"Find the others. Become one." Those were her instructions. She had to find her other selves in the other dimensions if she wanted to prevent the entire multiverse from collapsing. It seemed simple. All her other selves would surely understand what's at stake and come with her. Why wouldn't they?

Electric Sheep by Minty Electronica reviews
In the future, trainers in Unova travel along Disneyfied safe routes accompanied by android companions and automaton Pokémon. Door Hornbeam is too disgusted with the fakeness of a journey to set out on her own, but when she saves the amnesiac Geist from a mugging-in-progress, she's thrust into an adventure filled with secrets involving her family and the androids she despises.

Stop me if you've heard this one before. You wake up somewhere you don't recognize, only to find you've been turned into a Pokémon! Before you know it, you're off on a globe-trotting adventure. Dream come true, right? Well, for one human, that dream quickly turns into a waking nightmare. Can he fend off an otherworldly force threatening to rip the fabric of reality apart?
