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.

For those who are intimidated by this story's length, it is episodic in nature. Think of an episode like an anime arc or, better yet, a story chapter in the PMD games. The episode listing is as follows:

Episode 1: Parts 1-2
Episode 2: Parts 3-4
Episode 3: Parts 5-6
Episode 4: Parts 7-9
Special Episode 1: Parts 10-13
Episode 5: Parts 14-16
Special Episode 2: Parts 17-21
Episode 6: Parts 22-28
Episode 7: Parts 29-36
Episode 8: Parts 37-44
Episode 9: Parts 45-51
Episode 10: Parts 52-60
Episode 11: Parts 61-66
Episode 12: Parts 67-73
Special Episode 3: Parts 74-78
Absol Interlude: Parts 79-85
Episode 13: Parts 86-94
Episode 14: Parts 95-103
Special Episode 4: Parts 104-106
Episode 15: Parts 107-111
Episode 16: Parts 112-Present

UPDATE 8/9/2019: Guiding Light is nearly finished being published! The current episode is the final episode and I hope to have the story done in the fall. Even thought it is nearly done, I would still greatly appreciate any comments/reviews on any parts of the fic. It's the only way I can actually get a solid idea of what you really think of the fic.

For anyone interested in reading, I suggest pacing yourself and using the episodes as potential starting/stopping points, especially if you're thinking of leaving reviews. Although the fic is long, I'm still interested in hearing what people think about the story. Of course, if you're super-motivated and want to binge the whole fic, 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:

I now have an ask blog for the cast of Guiding Light. You can find it here: ask-the-guiding-light-cast dot tumblr dot com / (remove spaces, replace each "dot").

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Hands of Creation by Namohysip reviews
It started with getting stabbed. Later, mugged. And even later, pulled into a conspiracy he wanted no part of. A self-proclaimed "late-evolving" Charmander must rely on friends new and old to survive against a band of Pokémon called Hunters, or have his new, Grass-Type form turn to ash. An original PMD setting.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Canon Breakage by ShmokeyDaBear reviews
What happens when you find yourself thrown into a game you recognize well? You alter canon in your favor, of course. What happens when that canon is already altered? You improvise, naturally. A retelling of Explorers of Sky.

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?
