Waveside Guard: The Northbound Empire
Several days had passed since Shelly and Cher had embarked on their journey northward to meet up with Jerome.  That is to say, they had to go around the Sapphire Temple to reach the main roads that would LEAD to Pyrus County.  Courtesy of the Emerald Dukedom's strong alliance with Waveside, Shelly had easy passage through the dukedom before heading northward.
The two Pokemon leaned on eachother's shoulders. "...Whew... oh man... oh my..." Shelly panted. "It's... further than I though... heh..."
"...My liege, I will walk the Earth with you." Cher said, equally exhausted. "...But pray tell, where is Cynderstohn supposed to be, milady?"
Shelly opened up the map. "Says here that Cynderstohn is over at Pyrus County, which I BELIEVE we have gotten close to." She then checked the map of the locals. "...We're at Dragoon County right now."
"...The Dragoonites?" Cher asked. "Pray tell, aren't they mostly Dragon-types?"
"Oh yeah." Shelly nodded. "Here's one now!"

Alolan Trial 8: Anger Precedes Apathy
At the Hau'oli Marina, Mao saw before him the pink haired captain Ilima, greeting him as such. "Yo cap!"
Ilima turned around, flashing a calm smile. "Oh?  Mao, I presume."
"Ilima, right?" Mao asked. "I'm thinkin' it's time for me to start doing shit with clearing trials now."
"Oh my." Ilima said bemusedly. "Refreshing to see someone get straight to the point like that, rather than have their mind clouded with anger."
"Wait, why's that?" Mao asked.
"YO DAWGS!!!"
Mao turned around, and in front of him were the two skull hat guys from earlier, looking like they were healing from scrapes and injuries they had just sustained. "...Huh."
"Team Skull gonna meet you, no MATTER how we roll!" The grunt on the left said, before he and his right buddy waved their arms low and held their arms to their stomach at an arch.
Mao then faced Ilima again. "Anyways, my point is that I think I'm ready for more a dis."
Ilima paused briefly. "...Wait, that's right!  You got through the Trainer School

Immigrant Song- Alolan Trial Version
The opening begins with a sketch outline of Mao smiling as he looks up at the sky with Pain at his lap, and Rick and Boltshazar at his sides.  The color and tone sets in, revealing Mao sitting on unconcious Team Skull Grunts.
Aaaaaah, aaaaaah,
The title appears in huge letters, before we switch to Mao riding on a Taurus, charging ahead, Rick flying next to him.
We come from the land of the ice and snow,
From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow

We then cut to Mao chasing off after Nebby, on the rickety bridge towards the Ruins of Conflict.  The bridge soon collapses, causing the two to seemingly plummet to their death.
The hammer of the gods
Will drive our ships to new lands,

Then, we see Tapu Koko descending from the heavens above, swooping down and saving Mao and Nebby from their demise, with Mao opening his eyes in sheer astonishment.
To fight the horde, singing and crying,
Valhalla, I am coming!

Cue to Mao facing off against Kahuna Hala,

Alolan Trial 7: The Beach, Bitches
Mao stepped out of the Trainer School, a wide grin on his face. "AWRIGHT!!  EARLY INDEPENDENCE!!" As soon as he stepped onto the campus, she saw Lillie waiting for him, smiling and waving his arm at her, which caused Mao to wave back as he approached her. "And for the record, I nailed through all of that."
"I can't believe you did it!" Lillie exclaimed. "I-I mean, not that you couldn't, I mean-"
"Lillie, relax." Mao said. "I know my Pokemon game.  Got skillz.  And a walkthrough.  And I THINK a bond already."
Lillie nodded. "Looks like they're all in sync, right?"
"Yep." Mao nodded. "...Though Boltshazar is hard to read.  That's my Magnemite."
"...Wait what?" Lillie asked, slightly confused.
"They just seem... spaced out.  Emotionless almost." Mao answered. "Granted, they aren't breaking out of Pokeballs or anything.  Like THAT would ever happen!"
"You'd be surprised!" Hiromi called out, slightly miffed.

Dabyuchi Academy 1
Chapter 1: Another Course
Cassandra Hillsworth (132 lbs, 5’11”, a natural blonde) was admittedly a little confused about her school.  She didn't go to a normal school like most, no hers was very… peculiar.  Most students ended up gaining weight over their time there (as per usual for colleges), and the school only seemed to encourage it.  Despite that, she wasn't discouraged to be the best she could, as she was a member of the school cheerleading team.
“Brr… it’s cold… as per usual…” Cassandra shivered.  It was indeed a chilly October morning.
The school was called Dabyuchi Academy, and it was established up in the mountains in Colorado, by Yelena Dabolski, and Ken Hariyuchi, a female and male of Russian and Japanese descent respectively.  Their ideal was that cold weather would enforce a stricter atmosphere for learning, and for years this had held true as the academy was seen as a prestigious

A Letter To Undertale
Dear Undertale,
...I legitimately enjoyed playing this game.  No bullshit here, I enjoyed myself with this game, and I still do.  It isn't perfect (what IS?), and the fandom itself went nuclear the moment they began posting spoilers online... but for the game itself, you're pretty solid.  The story is alright, the characters are very memorable, and I like how the meta-narrative actually helps with world building and immersion.
That being said, I have some grievances.  Mainly, how the Genocide Route is handled.  Deliberately making the game less fun to play, with enemies not appearing and you running around in circles to take them out... that is NOT cool to play on us!  And, I get it: it's not SUPPOSED to be fun to go on a murdering spree.  If it was, who's the real monster, am I right?  But... just let the stench of DEATH settle in for how dark this game can get, alright?  Let the actual playthrough be structurally sound like t

A Letter To Alvin And The Chipmunks
Dear Alvin And The Chipmunks...
You sucked to begin with.  I don't say this to defend the movies by Sony/Columbia (those are downright BAD), nor do I say this to say that ANYONE could apply the magic needed to do this property justice.  There IS no justice to this property to begin with.  Squeaky, higher pitched voices speaking and talking through anthropomorphic chipmunks is downright EAR GRATING.
And, I know: a good amount of fans have NOSTALGIA with you, so saying this series sucks seems INCREDIBLY risky, but this REALLY isn't my idea of a good time.  The SOLE silver lining you have going for you is David Cross riffing through all his scenes in the live action movies. (Did I mention that the Flame Shield was active?)
So in short Alvin And The Chimpmunks, either get good, or fuck off.

A Letter To Adventure Time
Dear Adventure Time,
Let Finn have a fucking relationship that lasts, for fuck sake!  And would it kill you to turn the Ice King back into Simon, no strings attached?  I've had it with shows continuing to play the "feels card" in subjecting my favorite characters through emotional shit over and over.  Fuck you for overdosing on feels.  Let your fucking characters have some BREATHING room!  Have them WIN!  Turn their luck around!  Tell some JOKES, even!
In short, fuck you, AND your abuse of using feels.

Commissions

Ryuko Time
Ryuko Time is a commission series where people can go nuts with what they want Ryuko Matoi from Kill la Kill to experience... within my limits, obviously.  That's right: I string together several random requests regarding Ryuko Matoi in a way where it become one coherent story.  That being said, One Piece is the series it's currently crossing over with. So yeah, go nuts, but keep in mind that my writing magic will be felt even here.

Price: 20:points: (may be subject to change)
Persona 4 Brig
You know that one videogame Persona 4? That one really, really good game?

Well I've decided to make a little commission stand about it. That's right: 40:points: will get me to making one of these stories.

Unlike Ryuko Time, these stories won't exactly connect together. (Though I can easily recind that statement later.) But they will ALWAYS be really good.

So, what'cha waiting for?

You will never see me self loathe.
After work today... expect some Waveside, and maybe a sketch.
By the way, remember my art piece Nihilism?  Yeah, that's VENT art.
Something you guys have probably forgotten: I am a huge pervert.
THERE, I SAID IT!!
It was great!  Honestly, being surrounded by fellow nerds like myself did WONDERS for my mood.  I competed in a Super Smash Bros Melee tournament... and lost from the get-go. (Yeesh.)  BUT!  That was okay, because first time con stuff!

I got this black-and-gold hilt Mastersword for $20, and as handed off from the co-worker  I went there with for free, One Piece Season Six, Voyage Four.  Boom.

But mainly, it was the chance for me to talk to other nerds over there, talk about our shared love for the nerdy things that we loved, and really appreciate the fact that these things we like still keep on going strong.  I was at this one booth with N64 games, and I was just gushing about how that was the first console I ever played games on, and all.

So yeah: Go to these cons, people.  I definitely will.

I have several year periods to where I stay at a state before moving into another one, I'm a writer, not a fighter, and I'm something of a major gamer first, with stuff like anime and movies coming second. And when it comes to anime, Dubs FTW. Oh, and also Chinese films. Comments would be greatly appreciated.

Okay, there's more to me than that. For those of you who don't know, or haven't read my stories, I am what you would call an anti-shipper. Not only do I not ship, I actually mock shipping in my stories. You know, point out how unlikely the ship actually is. That's because of this little thing I like to call: OTP. An OTP is essentially what fans clingy onto as their "One True Pairing". These get roasted by me. ALL of them. In One Piece in specific, the main characters have a bond that makes romance look weak in comparison. They don't exactly have to love eachother, but then, they trust eachother with their lives. Shipping misses the entire point of that show in my opinion. Thus, I don't ship.

Oh, and one more thing:

Yeah! Mind me bouncing a few ideas off of you? 1/6 is done. 2/6 is going to be Grenadier and Meta against Croco. 3/6 is Kholod's introduction+a demonstration of his power. Then 4/6: Omega v Kholod. 5/6 is the villains' creation: Legacy. Their superweapon. And 6/6 is Rend in the Void, playing cards with Sanguine and Legacy. Sound good to you?
