  1. Dang guys. It's been years! I feel so lost!

    1. AquilaTempestas


      It has been a long time! Glad you're back! I take it you got my email!

      I did! Feels good to be looking around again. Hope all is well with you!

      And yet another returns to the fold...

  2. I've only ever published pokemon works, I've written for Pacific Rim, and Transformers. Recently, I've been thinking about Assassin's Creed, but I'm not sure about that yet.
  3. What draws me to read a fanfic is a summary that has a summary but also leaves me wondering what's really going on in the story. With pokemon fanfictions, especially gameverse ones, it's easy to be like "This follows the <Insert game> storyline" But what makes it better is, instead of saying that you outline a completely different story. The summary shouldn't be filled with "sorry I suck at this" or "FIRST TIME WRITING SORRY". Be confident in your work, sell your work. When I work on summaries I tell it out loud to a friend. I explain, in a longwinded way, what my story is about and then

      Hehe don't worry, we changed around a lot around New Year's. Look up the Guilds 2017 and Changes for 2017 threads.

  5. This is absolutely fantastic. I haven't been this engrossed in a fic since I discovered After Armaggedon. You sir, have created a masterpiece. It's only 4 chapters in, and you've got one of the most intriguing and unique stories out there. You've earned a new reader today and it's a damn shame that this story doesn't have more exposure. - This is from squarecircles, a really nice review and the first one I got in a long while. Despite calling me a dude, which everyone seems to think I am lol anyways, they proceeded to review for almost all of my stories. So far I'm actually really liking
  6. I write using OCs, but I rarely read fictions with for the many reasons that are stated. I try to do as much ressearch and as much practice as I can so that my OCs aren't bad and while sometimes I can go over the top, but I try my best. I'm not here to preach to you guys because I agree with you, some authors really don't know how to write OCs without them coming off as boring, overpowered or just perfect. I'm trying to write away from OCs, this will be after I finish with my only three. After that I want to use in game characters so that it's more reader friendly.
  7. Hello all, I just want to warn you that I do work with OCs and you'll find that stuff on my fanfiction page: https://www.fanfiction.net/~cascadenight Reviews would be great if you could. But if you're not into OCs I totally understand, no pressure. I will do a non-OC fic for Platinum, but it will be a while. If you are into non-OC things Prompt Collections has no OCs in it! I also have a tumblr blog for pokemon that has some stories in it that I don't think are on FFN : https://www.tumblr.com/blog/pokemon-ventures - with this you can ask me to write you a little something as w
  8. There's one author that I absolutely adore, her writing is so good. Her descriptions create a clear picture of her scenes (Fighting and romance) and her characters. She is super sweet and responds to all her reviews, her stories have great twists and she is ruthless with her characters. She's not scared to kill anyone off and for that, be careful if you come across a character you like. She writes for different shows, but I love her Transformers fic: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7430349/1/These-Paths-We-Tread This is the first one I read and it got me hooked on her style. The one she is curre
  9. Inspiration is such a fickle thing and yet my writing thrives on it. I try not to let inspiration drive when I write or if I can write, but it helps me get writing. I usually turn to music for writing, on Spotify, I make playlists for my characters and their stories. Things that remind me of them or songs that fit certain scenes. Other times I check out a bunch of books from the library and run through them, I look at different writing styles, elements of writing and how they're implemented. Lastly, I turn to getting outside or hanging out with friends, whether it's playing sports, going to th
  10. Omg you're back!

      Thank you, I appreciate it! It's fun being here, talking to people. Darn, I was hoping to read your works? Where can I go? If you don't mind my asking :).

      You get them directly from me simply by replying to my fanfiction thread.

  11. I usually make note while I'm reading. If a thought pops into my head such as, "That scene could have been detailed better" or "I like how the characters interact here", I put it in the review. I rarely comment on mistakes unless it's something obvious, or more than one spelling/grammar mistake as it's common to mess up on one thing simply because of an oversight. I really think when people review that it's okay to get into detail with things because that's how it is when people review books, so why not do the same for a chapter, or over the course of a few chapters. I usually wait every three
  12. I don't know if it works for fan fiction, but I was reading Stephen King's memoir for writing (Which is fantastic please try it out) and he said for the entirety of the story the final draft should be the first draft minus 10%. Now as FF writers, I understand that we do things a chapter at a time, but it makes sense in the long run. First drafts of my chapters are usually loaded with information that can be saved for a later time, so I'm usually cutting a hundred words with can add up pretty nicely later on. I'm not sure number-wise, but just saying that it's really an individual things as wel
  13. Man, so much has changed! I gotta stop disappearing so much. I'll try to be around more often!!

  14. It's been waaaaayyy too long! Everything is so different now... Gotta settle back in, I guess!
