  4. Yeah, it's actually a big step up from Sword/Shield and I didn't mind those games. These heaps to explore, lots of pokemon to see and catch, and it's nice having control over where you go first though sometimes you might be a tad bit over levelled for a fight. Though I basically walked away from a fight if my pokemon weren't near the same level range so I might've taken the optimal path without knowing. Oh you've gotta play Arceus Legends! The characters surprised me too and there were a few twists I didn't see coming.

  6. I wasn’t able to get the game right when it came out, but I ended up getting Pokémon Scarlet for Christmas, and lemme tell you, I’ve been playing this game so much. I admit that I didn’t have the highest expectations for this game. Honestly, I think the reason I was most excited for it was because of how the multiplayer worked. Luckily, my brother was excited for the game too, so we’ve actually been playing together a lot! It’s fun to be able to do different stuff and do your own thing while using the multiplayer function, but at the same time, you’re still playing together. Even when we were off doing different things, we could see how the other was doing because one, we were sitting next to each other, and two, the little notifs that showed what accomplishments the other person did. Besides that, I loved being able to explore! Riding on the Pokémon that they give you just felt so fun and natural, and I really liked going into different books and crannies to find items and Pokémon. So many of the environments were actually kinda cool and I didn’t usually feel forced to try and explore or push past the exploring. Also, the game was actually pretty challenging! I had a few close calls when it came to battles, but it wasn’t so hard where I felt frustrated. My main complaint about the game would be the graphics. There was quite a bit of lag, with some bits being way more noticeable than they should’ve been. Glitches were also quite common, though luckily I didn’t get as many or as major ones as others did. On top of that, I felt like the environment was a bit underwhelming. The game definitely could have looked prettier. I actually did like the graphics in Sword and Shield, and this made me miss it a bit. Also, I was incredibly disappointed that the only clothing options were uniforms. They did so good with the face customization! I was impressed, but yeah, that impression was dampened by the fact that my trainer was held off from reaching max coolness levels by the lackluster uniform options. However, despite those complaints, I think that this is the most fun I’ve had with a Pokémon game in a long time, ever since Gen 5 or 6. It might not seem like that long, but man does it feel like a lifetime. I haven’t played Arceus yet, so how they had you traverse the overworld and with the visible Pokémon was so different, yet so amazing to me! I think at this point, I’m pretty close to 100% the game. At the very least, I’ve finished the game’s story and obtained all of the Pokémon from the Pokédex. Currently, I’m trying to go for some shiny Pokémon (so far, I have a shiny Quaxly and Teddiursa). So yeah, this game has been really fun! Despite the issues, I actually really love this game: the story, the characters, the gameplay, the environments, and, of course, the Pokémon.

  10. Title: Come to Harm Fandom: Digimon ------- As Shigeru lifted his gaze to her, she knew something was troubling him. His normally kind and gentle demeanour was replaced with anxiety. Upon closer inspection she noticed his brows were furrowed under his messy bangs, his already pale complexion was starting to boarder unhealthy, and his brown eyes were darker then normal. “They are in these.” He tapped the device gently almost as if he was afraid it would jump out of his hands and disappear into thin air. “What?” She pulled out her own device and, in that moment, she heard the voice of the reptile creature from before. “Dracomon was just telling your friend everything we know currently about the situation. I’ll update you as we make our way to this doctor of yours. I didn’t mean to eavesdrop, but the situation with your eyes sounds very serious.” The redhead nodded, unsure if the creature could see her action or not. “Sure.” Was her only response to the Digimon before gesturing to her friend and heading out the door. As promised the Digimon, who called himself Psychemon, explained everything he knew of the situation. The enemy was called Chaosdramon and he was a threat to not just this world but the Digital World as well. She shivered just thinking about all the crimes he committed and the known promise to return one day was scary. She could only pray the girl he tricked into helping him could be saved. “I can see why you wanted me to come along.” Blinking away the temporary daze she had been in, the redhead realized they had reached the next district. However, what she saw was less then pleasing. Almost every inch of the walls of homes, shopping centres, churches and other buildings were covered in graffiti.

  11. I was there in 2013, Croatia was great! Plitvica Lakes are just wonderful, as well as ancient Roman streets of Split, and beautiful town of Trogir. I haven't seen Dubrovnik though, people say it's super gorgeous. The only thing that spoiled my impressions was weather: it reached +40°C most of the days, and my hotel didn't have air conditioning, so this sucked greatly. Also the sea was pretty cold so it was impossible to stay in water for too long in attempts to escape this heat.

    Beyblade

    I was rewatching Beyblade with a friend and we were discussing how deep this show really is. I’ll expand more on this when I get home, but it’s really amazing how political 01 is. In short… - Russia is the “big bad” as Russia has mostly been a dodgy country. Boris and Voltaire run a secretive abbey where they use unorthodox methods to train bladers. - The Americans are shown to be a “go large or go home” type of nation. The All Starz are cocky and reliant on technology. No real surprises here as America is the technology powerhouse of the world. It’s also interesting to note the exhibition match with the celebrity bladers which really reflects how America tends to go overboard on many of their sporting events - they really know how to put in a show. Even the lead up matches were flashy and over the top. - For the Majestics, it’s all about colonialism and slavery. European nations were always at war with each other back in the day so it makes sense the Majestics aren’t a team at first. Each of them has a tale to tell about their ancestors dating back to the ancient and medieval times. Also, they had a tendency to treat their bitbeasts like slaves to which the Europeans did to what they believed were “inferior” races. - As for the White Tigers, they’re meant to represent the Asian tribes, particularly China. They’re outsiders, probably live in poverty and follow a very strict code. They’ve always struck me as being one of those tribes intentionally cut off from the rest of the world because the “leaders” don’t want to lose power. There’s quite a few places in Asia still that are cut off. In the next post, I’ll write some fascinating observations about specific characters. Beyblade explores a great variety of relatable issues.

  18. I've definitely been less interested in writing fanfiction over the years, especially as I worked more and more on my original stuff. It just always took a backseat to my original stuff, even if the fanfiction starred OCs. I've been reading it less too but I've been reading less of everything, basically. I have been trying to continue working on my Pokemon Mystery Dungeon fanfic now and then, though. Aiming to get a chapter out every month or so, but my original stuff still takes priority. Difference with my Mystery Dungeon fic, is that the Mystery Dungeon community do read and review a lot, so having that encouragement tells me 'I should try to get this working, people are liking it'. Fanfiction is usually published online bit by bit, whilst my original stuff I don't really do that anymore because I constantly restart and rework it. There's more pressure with writing fanfiction, in that way.

  20. Took from BCOTS, thought 'why not drop them right in the drama?' ---- “Don’t be stupid, fighting isn’t going to fix this.” It was a rather foreign concept to bird-folk honestly, when so many of their problems were solved by friendly and unfriendly brawls. However, his sword arm trembled at the thought of piercing the traitor who had comforted him, knowing he was the source of his pain. “I just want to know, why did this all happen? What is Lazarus planning?” Even as Cecilia stared at him, he couldn’t help but ignore her, calling out her brother. “What benefit did you have in using me?” “I never intended to use you!” Lucio finally exclaimed, sweat dripping as the air heated up, in response to the magic seeping from the bird man. “We can’t tell you what Lazarus is doing, he won’t even tell us, but I can tell you I didn’t mean harm! I felt bad and wanted to help you, I wanted you to trust me! Because I knew you were a good guy and didn’t deserve-” “That’s enough!” He couldn’t stay here anymore, he couldn’t listen to his words, he couldn’t see the desperation on his face without feeling such rage he felt like his self control was about to crumble. So many emotions were clashing inside him and he couldn’t make sense of it, or anything that was going on. “Nothing you can say is going to make things okay, it doesn’t change the fact you lied to me and made a complete fool out of me. Why did I ever…” He couldn’t finish that statement, as the fire lingered in his eyes and he turned away. Instead he found his mouth speaking something just as embarrassing, as his carefully controlled voice cracked and his words left at a higher pitch. “Why did I ever open up to you?”

  21. From my idol/fan AU. --- The sound of a motorbike could be heard pulling close outside to the local, which Anemone really hoped was G16’s one, like when the other day she went to take S21 away, perhaps now she was taking her here? Seeing a shock of red hair from outside the window confirmed it. And all of a sudden Anemone could feel her heart race. She was here… "Someone pinch me…" she muttered as she watched the two women enter. When a sharp pain on her cheek distracted her. "I didn't mean literally." she growled at Dahlia who just shrugged. "Maybe you'll stop dreaming then." Stop dreaming? Highly unlikely. "Face it, she's the real deal, and she's here before you." Dahlia gave her a push. "Get over it and go say hi already." From the force Dahlia threw here with, she stumbled forward, almost falling over, if it wasn’t for a pair of hands holding her up. “Are you okay?” this sweet voice… Looking up, she couldn’t suppress a blush, she’d fallen into S21’s arms. hastily she removed herself from her, not wanting to be rude. “Yes, I’m fine, thank you.” she then turned to glare at Dahlia who feigned ignorance looking another way. “Dahlia’s a jerk, sorry.” “And you’re the one in charge of apologies?” the redhead asked. “Somewhat.” after all it was her sending that letter on Gerbera’s behalf. She held her hand out. “I’m Anemone, I sent that letter.” She could feel her cheeks burn again as the other woman took her hand, she had such a delicate touch. “Cattleya. Though you better know me as S21.”

  23. Here's the majority of a Meiko & Meicoomon collection drabble I finished today. ----- Several years had passed from that fateful day when she first saw Digimon. She was now in junior high and realized she had a crush on Koushiro. Meiko wasn’t sure what to do at first, so she spoke to Sora for advice. The other girl thought about the situation for a moment, before replying. “That is a tricky one, but I would recommend being open with him from the start. I know neither of you are forward about your feelings, but I know he likes you too. You’re both very pleasant people to be around.” Meiko nodded. “Thank you, Sora.” Sora nodded, smiling. “You’re welcome, Meiko. I hope everything works out for the two of you.” Meiko was still nervous about this, but decided to talk to Koushiro after school ended for the day. When the bell finally rang to signify the end of classes for the day, she walked up to Koushiro who was talking to Taichi. Taichi noticed that she wanted to talk to Koushiro, since Sora had filled him in from earlier, so he excused himself and went over to stand by Sora’s side. “H-Hi, Koushiro.” Meiko stammered. “Hello, Meiko.” The auburn-haired boy replied, his tone shy. Meiko hesitated for a brief second, before gathering her courage to ask what she needed. “How are you doing with classes?” Koushiro blinked before he answered, as he sensed there was something more she wanted to know. “Classes are going well. I have high grades.” He paused, as if trying to gather his thoughts. “Should we go a bit further away? I can tell you want to ask me something.” “Please? Thank you, Koushiro.” Meiko answered, her face flushing with embarrassment. She followed Koushiro as the other teen walked away a bit further. “You can ask me freely now, Meiko.”

  31. - Title Digital [R]eincarnation - Summary Her story had to be one of a kind, one that not even the craziest person in existence would ever believe nor tell, it was surreal even for those who still believed in legends and fairytales… and even more for herself. How? Someone would ask. She was dead, or rather she should have been. So then… why was she in a laboratory of some sorts? - Genre Angst, slow burn romance - Fandoms Nier Automata (primarly) and One Piece - For fans of The main protagonists are Nico Robin and A2, however many other characters will appear along the story, pretty much most if not all regarding the fandom of Automata. - Authors Notes This was somewhat some crazy dream, I have always been fan of Robin, she's been my first muse, and I've absolutely been loving A2 when I played Automata and I began seeing similar things between them, and I was like... what if they met? But instead of doing the usual crossover thing of X character gets suddenly dragged in Y universe, I wanted to make sure she'd properly fit in the world of Nier, changing her a little to make sure she'd be at home there. Fandom knowledge isn't strictly necessary as I believe the characters explain themselves well enough on their own, their roles and their stories, I have readers that enjoyed the story even though they weren't familiar with one of the two fandoms, as far as I was told, so I assume it won't be necessary. But some knowledge may let you enjoy the story more of course. What I'm looking for? Nothing in particular, mostly feedback on character developement, I already know my grammar needs a fixing. Or just someone that enjoys this story as much as I've been loving writing this crazy thing. - Chapters and links As of now the story has become really long, so I'll go by arcs when they start to avoid posting every single link at almost 70 chapters written. These are archive links as I feel it's cleaner there, but I'll post the FFN one at the end too. Arc 1 - Prologue (chapter 1 to 4) Arc 2 - Fates Entwined (chapter 5 to 11) Arc 3 - Awakenings - Route A/B (chapter 10 to 21) Arc 4 - Loss - Route C/D/E (chapter 22 to 39) Arc 5 - Revivals and Truths - Post Ending E (chapter 40 to 61) Arc 6 - Revivals and Truths - A2's side (chapter 62 to ?) Arc 7 - Magical Stories Arc 8 - The Search for a Home FFN link to the story

  32. Topic bump! Think of the OC as a person you know with qualities that you can understand and question. What are their favorite foods? Pet peeves? Habits when they're nervous? What kind of person so they become when they're challenged? Authors love to over indulge their OCs to point they should have their own story, rather than be a part of a Canon tale. An OC, by definition, is a supporting cast. Nothing more. They should never, ever be written as the perfect being as perfection doesn't exist. It's a lie we tell ourselves. A lie we project ourselves into create a story where you'll like it but others will ignore it. A good way to create one is writing down people traits and draft out their personalities. Source from the people around you, celebrities, or even people you admire to become a starting template. Then, add in addition details you think will help the canon character or become a monumental hindrance. It's really about balancing out the character to become a person the readers can see and feel.

  33. In the end, it comes off as bragging no matter how it's viewed. Kinda saps the joy out of writing when you feel left behind because the mind isn't able to keep up with theirs. Respectively, people should be helping out and offering ideas to help each other rather than pinning it down to a numbers game.

    I never really posted here because all I had was some crappy old phone, a Nokia Lumia I even forgot which model, and my parents didn't want to buy me a new one really, because I alwasy stayed home, but finally, when it came august I managed to finally step up and be a normal person with a decent new one, I managed to get a Redmi 9C, not super expensive and it does its job so it's cool. I can do normal things too now.

  43. Assassination Classroom! A lot of inspirational quotes to be taken from this show, but I opted for a more amusing scene. - Lovro: ... but I wonder if you could explain to me this business of "psyche attack". Nagisa: Well the idea is to throw him off guard and slow him down. Maehara: Oh, he likes porn. Makes no bones about where he gets it either, figure we'll use that on him. Koro-Sensei: Look, just promise not to tell your classmates, alriiiiight? Maehara: He bought our silence with a round of popsicles. [suddenly with shining red eyes] But it's gonna take a lot more than that to keep us from spilling the beans! Terasaka, Muramatsu, Yoshida, and Hazama: Let's gang up and teach the perv a lesson he won't soon forget! Nagisa: It would really get in his head if we threatened to blackmail him. He'll be so freaked out by what we got. Lovro: .... These children are brutal...
