    I know most of you guys who are writing pokemon fanfics probably have everything set in stone and established and all of that, but would anyone be interested in a "Need a Nickname?" thread? I'm having trouble thinking of a name for the Steelix one of my characters owns, and I'm pretty sure other people have trouble with nicknames.

    It could even be extended to character names too, if needed.

    That's not a bad idea, though I don't really need to give any potential Pokemon characters of a story I write a nickname. As for your Steelix, if it's male, I'd name it Troy after Troy Polamalu, who plays for the Pittsburgh Steelers, an NFL team for the US. :D

    See, they're called the Steelers because Pittsburgh was once the biggest producer of steel in the US. And many things in Pittsburgh are still all about steel. Many of its bridges are made of steel because of how much steel the city produced. You can still see old pipes from the old steel mills down on the Monongahela River waterfront. The biggest roller coaster in Kennywood out in West Mifflin (a Pittsburgh borough) used to be called the Steel Phantom, until it was remodeled into the Phantom's Revenge. Even still, it's a steel coaster! We even still tend to call Pittsburgh the Steel City or City of Steel, for one thing.

    ...lol that's a lot of steel in this post. Talk about steeling a piece of mind. ;D

    Are there any epic fanfics without romance that anyone knows of?

    My Cilan one-shot is non-romance. But that's the only fic I have right now that doesn't have any sort of romance.

    There's no romance in Heart of Crystal. The jury's out as to whether or not that will change in the future, though.

    I'm working on one. There may be a romantic undertone every now and then, but it's certainly nowhere near a major theme in any of the chapters it appears in or an underlying tone throughout much of the story. Too much romance is gushy and part of what turns me off of most things, be they fanfics or best selling books.

    In other news, I had a strange dream where I was being attacked by exploding snakes. My house was barely standing by the time I woke up.

    There might be some romance in my new fic, but it won't be in the main focus, at least, that's what I'm planning.

    In other news, I'm currently living at my older brother's house because he's on holiday in Hungary, primarily because I'm keeping his dogs some company while he's away. But the Internet from the mobile broadband I've borrowed from him sucks here :(

    No romance in my upcoming fic, called Mello. Pure thrill and tragedy.

    Though for a fic that's already out, @Joebro; I would advise you to check out Brotherhood by G-Mama, or one of his awesome past works called Are We Heroes.

    Actually, my FE fic is like this too. It has some romance (several pairings and hinted pairings), but it's hardly the main focus. The only time it is a big part is in the beginning with the small Ike-and-Elincia-reuniting-after-months subplot.

    I'm drawing more too, actually. My co-author is going on vacation on the 19th, so it'll be a good time to do more character concept art and such for my fics.

    Nnnnnnngh. I have no idea how I'm gonna handle the next chapter of Heart of Crystal...Ecruteak's coming up soon, and it's going to need to be very important, plot-wise, so I have to set up the bazillion different plot hooks that need to start there while still having an entertaining battle in the Goldenrod Gym first and ugh that battle is going to be such a pain in my ass to write...
