    Plus it's always fun to get a second (and third, and fourth) opinion on your work

    Hey, I have a question regarding the awards. My story was the only nominee in the Dark Fic category to be voted onto the next round, so does that mean it'll be judged against the entries that received one vote, or will it win by default?

    I seems to have missed a bit while I was MIA for about a month of so.

    @Anhyo; I think Ace said that if only a story qualified then the second story that had come close to qualifying would be passed to at least make a little competition.

    Hey. Yeah, due to the necessity of having competition and being fair, both Galactic and Hero were moved on as well as they both received one vote and no other fic received two votes. It has always been a policy since the Awards were streamlined that there needs to be some degree of competition to prevent someone winning on the spot, so sorry that you cannot win automatically, but you still have a very decent chance of coming out on top :)

    And yes @Caite-chan, yes you did :P

    @AceTrainer14 Well I hope that things have calmed down enough to where I can be lazy again and be here more.

    I've just read the rules about posting a chapter or two to the judges in a similar way as the Emmy awards and considering my fic right now only has three chapters so far, it probably won't be difficult to decide which ones the judges should read. And by the way, even if I don't win an award, I'll just say it's an honor to take part in the competition as it is my very first one.

    EDIT: On a side note, I need a new signature, it's a bit of a mess at the moment with all those links XD

    As you only have three chapters, you do not need to submit any recommended chapters as the judges should be able to read them all as long as they are not super long

    I suddenly have the urge to write a zombie apocalypse story in a Left 4 Dead setting. I was going through one of the campaigns a few nights ago and looked at some of the writing on the wall in one of the safehouses and was like "Wow. Imagine seeing this in real life." Like, you'd see something like "Jay, Melissa, we're heading north. Let's meet at the airport." written on the wall and then you realise they probably never regrouped and never survived.

    If only I had the time. :(

    Edit: also, thinking about this Fairy-type business... one of my characters owns a Clefairy which he practically uses as an HM slave, and states how he has trouble with Dragon-types. I wonder if I should work Fairy-types into my story, even though I'm focusing on a Gen IV atmosphere...

    I remember when Gen II came out, a lot of fics interpreted additions like the new Dark and Steel types, or the introduction of Umbreon and Espeon, as "new discoveries", things that were breaking news in that world so to speak.

    Maybe of you treated Fairy type as a new or recent discovery that this character recently became aware of, you could work it in without it being too far of a divergence from what you imagined before the news of this new type came out during E3.

    I think I read the fic you're talking about though, and it might be a little tough seeing as this character has been to most regions aside from Kallos.

    I don't have an answer, just giving some thoughts. Good luck!

    I usually treat "types" as sort of arbitrary categories that researchers place Pokemon in rather than something set in stone in nature, and Pokemon being put into new types as a reclassification of sorts.

    So, sort of like how Pluto used to be called a planet.

    Can someone explain to me how Leech Seed actually works in the games in terms of it being transferred to other Pokemon? The Bulbapedia article only confused me on this subject :/

    When the opponent is seeded, every turn a little bit of their HP is drained and given to the other Pokemon
