bay_alexison: (Rainy day no thank you)
PC's Small Writing Contest for the Get Together has been closed and there are twenty one entries [ profile] bobnbill, [ profile] speaker_astinus, and I have to go through.


...So lucky I just need to read and give out the scores instead of also having to do full blown reviews like Serebii's HeartGold/SoulSilver one shot contest back in 2009. Either case though, bye bye writing time for a week or two. O:

Since I'm here, time for day two of the fanfic meme!

2 – Name the fandoms you've written in, and how much you've written in that fandom, and if you still write in it.

So far I have written four fandoms, two I have written only one story for each and two I wrote quite a bit.

*Pokemon- I already mentioned how five years ago I started Pokemon fanfiction due to being inspired by some great writers at Serebii forums. So far I have posted...*goes check Master Fic List* twelve stories in public: three finished chaptered fics, one unfinished chaptered fic, and eight one shots. I have like six other Pokemon one shots, but I don't like them. x_x At the moment I'm not writing Pokemon fanfiction, but I still have vague ideas time to time so I might be able to do some again soon.

*FMA- LOL, losing track since there are some stories from [ profile] fma_fic_contest I need to post here and a couple that are saved in my documents folder, but perhaps I have done close to thirty stories so far? I believe I'll still write stories for FMA for a long time since I keep getting plot bunnies for this fandom. Also, with [ profile] fmabigbang coming soon, I'll be focusing on the story I plan to enter it in for a while.

*Naruto- LOL back in 2009 a couple friends of mine would talk a lot about Naruto, so I went straight to watching Naruto: Shippuden (already know what happens pre-Shippuden, so I didn't bother watching the original series). I wrote a short where Deidara blew up Sasori, Solf Kimblee style. x_x I actually did wrote another piece based around one of the anime-based arcs, but that story wasn't going anywhere, so I scrap it. Not in that fandom anymore, so no more fics there.

*Homestuck- Wrote a one shot that's basically a retelling of when John met Grimdark! Rose thanks to a prompt from [ profile] seta_suzume's No True Pairing community at Dreamwidth. Right now Homestuck is getting way, WAY confusing and I haven't looked through the updates in a week, but I have a couple fanfic ideas which I may do after I get some of my FMA stories done. One idea is in which it's an AU where Jade gets kidnap and Terezi has to find her (thank you, Seta! XD).

Other Days )

Okay, so as those here who visits Pokecommunity knows, the Get Together has been extended from Monday to Thursday. Originally the Get Together's Small Writing Competition is suppose to end on Monday, but then [ profile] bobnbill, [ profile] speaker_astinus, and I decided to have it end tonight. Before the extension, there were nine entries and I got done looking through five of them. After the extension, six entries came, five of which were PMed today once I checked my inbox. x_x There's a little over seven hours left until the stories are due, so I'm expecting a whole bunch more last minute entries like the last two times I judged the SWC the last two times. This will be a long week since some of the entries are LONG, haha.

In the meantime, a 30 day fanfic meme I stole from [ profile] aamalie because I love to ramble a lot over my writings. Let's see how much I'm able to keep up with this one.

Day 1 - How did you first get into writing fanfic, and what was the first fandom you wrote for? What do you think it was about that fandom that pulled you in?

I got into fanfic writing a little over five years ago when I got back to Pokemon and reading some fanifcs at Serebii forums. Back then there were many BNF writers there like Cheshire Cat, Scrap, Saber, [ profile] grandmastasexeh, [ profile] undersaffiresky, and [ profile] evil_bunny_king. I loved their writings a lot and so I was inspired to write a Pokemon fic. I did and able to finish it, but oh my god back then I didn't know how to keep my tenses straight, dialogue is all stuffy, and too many awkward sentences. x_x I still love the story though because it was my first story written in a while (I had written some original works before going to fanfiction) and had fun with it.

What drew me in writing for the Pokemon fandom is the many different ways you can go about writing it. It's so open since you can write about either original or canon characters, the Pokemon, the evil teams, a certain event that happened in game/anime/manga/any other source, etc. There are endless possibilities.

...Oh man, I really want to write Pokemon fanfiction again. ;_;

bay_alexison: (Can you hear me?)
Anyone in my F-list who visits the fanfic section at PokeCommunity thinks Chamomile13 is getting a bit out of hand at the Plot Bunny Thread? Page 5 is where he gets irritated when [ profile] azurne responded and Page 6 is where he gets even more annoyed. I don't know, but it seems he isn't listening to the people telling him that what's he trying to do with his story isn't going to work. Also, not sure if I should respond to his latest post about plot not being important because of how "plot has been reused." *sighs*

EDIT: "Um. Your belief is wrong. Trust me. I carry a story on characters with little or no plotline to back it up all the time."


Wow, just wow. Why am I even surprised.

[ profile] astinus, you might find this very, very funny.

Yeah, those Member of the Month/Year things in Pokecommunity are moreso out of popularity, but I really find it hilarious for Best Poet, Careful With That Axe, Pichu got first place and Astinus won second (or well, tied for second). As far as I can tell, both of them haven't posted any poetry at the forums. I find that kinda weird, haha.

And while I'm at it, HAPPY NEW YEARS, everyone! No, we're not one year closer to the end of the world, [ profile] enigma_shadow1. :P

Okay, something else I got annoyed at Pokecommunity. Recently Team Plasma has been introduced, but many people were complaining about how ugly the hoods were and why they were wearing them in the first place. Well, time for Bay to do a little history lesson. Jacob would have done that, but he's at jail now. >.>

The knights would pretty much cover themselves top to bottom for protection, including their heads. Before the knights wore armor, they would wear chainmail. However, underneath the chain mail they wore their clothing and also pads called gambersons that eases the weight of the chain mail. Incidentally, there's a pad to cover your head, which is the hood pretty much. This link here gives a short but nice info on knights and their armor (plus other things):

Pretty much yeah, I know a thing or two about knight armor so it annoys me when people say the hoods look ugly and such. Team Plasma's costume maybe not exactly have chain mail or armor, but it's the best representation we got for how a knight would wear in the Pokemon world.

*wonders if people are interested in this little history lesson D:*
bay_alexison: (Jenny)
Serebii fanfic results are in!

Long because Jacob had to make a dramatic entrance, again )

Okayyyyy, moving on. The next part of the entry is about...PokeCommunity! D: Now, I usually talk about Serebii here, but this time here are a few thoughts about PC, mainly the writing community.

PC stuff )
