    Anyone ever have a go at something like this Fanfic Drinking Game? I dare not try it here, I can't hold that much alcohol Joke, best I'd get is a little tipsy perhaps. After a few fics

    For Joshua Cook, it's a long walk away from his dull life to the Pokémon League. But does he really want to be the very best? A coming-of-age story of adventure, friendship and growing up in the world of Pokémon.

    A sip for each author's note? Unpredictable would get you hammered.

    Whoo! None of my stories here would get you past one or two sips of very watered down booze!

    The Long Walk wouldn't give you much to drink, looks like. The game seems to focus on shipping and canon characters. Still might be fun to try out at some point, though!

    Yeah, Pokemon fics tend to have their own set of tropes apart from most other fanfiction. We still have the shippers, but the cliche fics (journey fics) are very different.

    So I got my hand on my friend's Batman comic collection a few weeks ago and I've been casually going through them... Oh my god, Batman is so incredibly dark... I thought the Chris Nolan movies took things a bit far, but jesus.

    It's mostly the Joker being just one cold bastard (killing people as punishment after they've made the decision to save someone else's life, indiscriminately spree killing people in horrifying ways in broad daylight, etc), but I'm surprised things like that could even be put out to a youth audience. I mean, it's the kind of stuff that makes news reports we hear on the evening news look like child's play.

    I have sent in my nomination--entered "The Kalos Connection" into the fray just to see how it does. I'm not expecting it to win anything, but I'll be really happy if it does.

    Ooh, non-authorial nominations are allowed this time! Hopefully that'll open the awards up a bit this time around. As I mentioned to AceTrainer14 I shan't be entering myself unless nominations need a little padding for the sake of competition.

    In other news, the reason I'm posting this at 4am GMT is because I am coughing myself raw. This damn cold has morphed into one hell of a chest-ripping cough literally overnight!

    Hey um, since this place has good writers it must mean we have some good editors also, right? So um, anyone care to proofread an essay I'm writing for school? Thought about posting stuff like this before but I figure now's as good a time any to begin. Topic: Lewis Carroll and his poetry.


    And sorry I haven't been active like I have said I was. I can make excuse after excuse but it boils down to not having stable internet. As in goes out several times a day for hours at a time and having a 30GB cap for my whole family, none of which seem to realize how little it is(As in My Mom and little sister don't, Dad does on the other hand). So yeah, if you need to contact me either go email(should have one listed) or twitter (goes in through phone).

    Good on you for getting up and actually doing something with your sleepless time. I was in the same situation last month and just laid in bed awake hating myself (and hacking into my pillow so I wouldn't wake up my roommate) until the sun came up. Hope you get better soon!

    Hey, so my knowledge of Lewis Carroll could probably fit on the back of a postage stamp, but I'm happy to look at it from an outsider's perspective or something! ^^

    I can't wait until I find a job...maybe then I'll stop stressing enough to actually write something. I don't want to call Heart of Crystal dead, but it's starting to look like that might be the case...writing this Whitney battle was fucking tedious even before I had to worry about being employed. It doesn't help that I'm getting distracted by other fandoms - mainly Team Fortress 2, Warriors (aka Warrior Cats), and Fire Emblem: Awakening. Maybe I should give up on long, complex, multi-chapter endeavors...
