    Ah, thanks you guys. I was finally able to pull it up. Unfortunately, the moment I noticed it was a nuzlocke challenge fic, I chose not to read it. I apologize, but I've never liked the idea behind nuzlocke challenges. It's not Feli's fault or the fault of any of you guys though. I've disliked the idea since long before I joined this place.

    So you're not even going to give it a chance?

    I'm really sorry, no. :(

    But as I said, it's not your fault. Really.

    @Kelleo, I think you are being extremely unfair. You go on about not being able to find the link, and everyone has to go and get it for you rather than you searching for it on your own, and then you don't even want to give the fic a try after getting everyone's hopes up. Your actions are completely against the spirit of the Workshop! You cannot base a fic purely on what it contains, and I do not see what is preventing you from reading the first chapter and trying the story out if you were going to read it anyway until learning its general basis. I find it extremely ironic as well as you caused such a fuss when the Review Game was originally being created by Gotpika and it was going to be just Pokemon fan fiction and you wanted your Fire Emblem stories to be included as well, and now you are excluding another piece of fan fiction yourself. I am sure if someone said they did not want to read a Fire Emblem story when you had been waiting several weeks to get one single review you would be very upset yourself.

    @AceTrainer14;: I know, I feel bad, really. But for one thing, I had to go to work soon after I noticed the link wasn't working for me, so I was unable to search for it myself. Not to mention I didn't actually ask anyone to find the link for me. The others did it of their own free will. And for another, I really wanted to give Feli's story a chance despite that I don't read much Pokemon fiction in general, but that nuzlocke thing still makes me reluctant. I will reconsider, however, because I do understand what you're saying. But even so, you also can't force others to read something. Yes, I'd be upset if someone didn't want to read my Fire Emblem fic for whatever reason, but I wouldn't pester them to even after. I'd just get on their nerves.

    I'm not saying you're annoying me or anything at all, I'm just letting you know of this for future reference.

    I am not trying to force you to read it, I am just saying that you made a big deal about it and then did not follow through. You did not need to post to say "Not going to read this" as this only upsets the author, especially when you are judging it on the themes rather than actually giving it a go.

    See, now a proper response that keeps the spirit would be a plain old to-the-point if harsh: "nuzlockes are awful i hate them so much i refuse to associate with them sorry" or possibly skimming over it just enough to at least say "no interest but i see you're going against whitney next this will be predictable; have a nice final chapter~" Like me. ;P



    All that being said, I may skim the next chapter of that fic, just to see if some of that trolling comes into play.
    Don't know what to put here.

    @adiosToreador; I've made a review of the first three chapters of your fic and posted the link in the review game, and I would also like to say that I will continue reading it. After all, Nuzlocke fics intrigues me at the moment :)

    I don't think I noticed anything about it in the Review Game, but is it kosher to ask for a review in a story that isn't your own? *likes to read and review but doesn't have anything up yet* -_-;;

    No, the story that is asked to review has to be the said persons. So in order to actually do the game you have to have a fic of your own.

    And thank you Tophat for doing the review :)

    Happy to help . I believed too much time passed since Feli requested a review, so I decided to give her a review with 3 chapters in total to compensate for that

    I made a big deal about it because I'd heard Feli's fic was good, yet was waiting for a review, and I thought I might review it. I didn't know it was a nuzlocke fic at all. I wasn't expecting to change my mind about reading it. I honestly apologize.

    Aw, that sucks. If you don't mind me asking, why? I mean, someone's story is getting reviewed either way and it allows people who don't have stories up or write to participate.
