Pirate Time Chapter 9: Enter Wilfred
*In An Aratian Naval Ship, Towards Gothor Island...*
"...Ladies... gentlemen... I, Richter Donominio, propose a battle strategy."
That was Admiral Richter, garnering the attention of Captain Shack, Commodore Violet, Lieutenant Blonde, Lieutenant Novana, and many, MANY more Naval Soldiers aboard the ship.
"Due to our glorious friend Captain Shack's contribution, in the department of hiring someone to find and attempt to assassinate the Max Pirates," Richter began, "we now have intel, that The Max Pirates, are at Gothor Island, thus proving my suspicions dead-on, and our goal clear!"
There were loads of murmurs in the crowd.
Then, Blonde rose his hand. "Sir?"
"Eyes~?" Richter asked, as he turned to face Blonde.
"Does this mean we're going to storm the island, liberate it from Vincent's control, and instil an Aratian Navy Base there?" Blonde asked.
"You catch on fast, darling." Richter answered. "That IS indeed the case~!"
Violet then raised her hand. "Considering how Maxwell might

Pirate Time Chapter 8: Gothor, The Obsidian Island
"...Vincent, are you certain that these three are the ones?"
"Wilfred, this is me we're talking.  Of course they are."
Max slowly opened his eyes, and found himself in a black-leather couch.  Right at the ceiling was a portrait of pirates and navy men clashing together, with what appeared to be a man of long black hair, a moustache, and a royale beard, rising from the bottom, to the top.  He was seen in black armor and wings, with the exact grey eyes that Max had.
"What the fuck...?" Max asked.
"Ah, you're awake."
Max turned around, and sure enough, he saw the very man in the ceiling portrait, wearing a black tuxedo, and expensive black shoes, with one hand grasped onto a rapier, and the other holding onto a wine glass.  To his right, the very man with blonde hair who fired off the rifle that sprung the electric trap on Max in the first place.  He was seen wearing his black uniform and black hat, this time with black gloves as well.
"...Where is my crew?" Max a

Alolan Trial 14.1: Talking About Reboots
Mao was at a Pokemon Center, having Krabman, Cherie and Rick healed by the Nurse Joy from the other side.
"Wait, the fight you got in, ended in a fucking draw?" The Nurse Joy asked, her left eyebrow raised. "I thought that didn't happen in regular battles."
"Yeah, well I decided to go for tournament rules midway," Mao exhaled, "and sure enough, I see Rick falling in battle, before my eyes, as well as my new rival's apparently."
The Nurse Joy then handed Mao back his Pokemon. "Ah, THAT makes more sense.  Rivals can do that, you know.  They are, like, the essentials needed to make a trainer's life complete."
Mao sighed as he daydreamed. "Ah yes... and who could forget the legendary rivalry between Red and Blue...?"
"Have a lovely day," the Nurse Joy said.
Mao walked to the Poke Mart guy. "Okay, I'm gonna be buying some stuff, so bear with me."
At the end, what Mao ended up getting was more Potions, Paralyze Heals, Antidotes, and Pokeballs. "This is what I'm all about, bitches a

Pirate Time Chapter 7: White To Black
"Wait.... WHAT?!?"
That was just about EVERYONE, in the Carmine HQ, on Carmina Island, on the reveal that Max Slateman, and Violet Strutengald, were both siblings.
"Wait... how...?" Max asked, looking right at Violet. "She's my... SISTER?!"
"He's my brother?" Violet asked. "What the actual fuck, admiral?"
"I did some DNA testing, darling." Richter said. "You two, are siblings."
"...This is going way too fucking fast...!" Max called.
Mao placed his arm around Max's shoulders. "Hey, HEY.  You got your bro here, and you got Carmen here.  Now you got someone else too."
"But we just FOUGHT!!" Max said. "You know how awkward shit could get?!"
"...Would you mind if I told you who our biological mother is?" Violet asked.
Max gave Violet the hand. "Nope.  Don't want to know.  I am NOT ready for that stage in my life.  No way.  Uh-uh.  I am NOT gonna hear it.  Whoever had the wise idea to drop me off at the orphanage, was dead to me LONG ago.  I just

Pirate Time Chapter 6: Violet And Richter
"...Wake up... wake up... wake up."
"Ugh... I'm up, Nigel, for the love of god, I'm up..." Max groaned, before rising out of bed. "...Wait, why am I in bed?" He shot up immediately, before looking at Mao, and Carmen, the both of whom were in their own beds.
"Son... what are you doing?"
Max turned to face the source of the voice, that came from the burning fireplace: Bill March! "...BILL?!?"
Bill gave Maxwell the pause gesture with his right hand. "Maxwell, just what in the hell do you think you're doing out here, dressed like THAT?"
"...Thank you... SO much... for saving us." Max said. "And, uh... we took on the Copper Pirates, turns out there was this dude named Alder, we're here now, apparently THIS place is infested with NAVY folks, and-"
"Stop what you're saying." Bill commanded, prompting Max to quit talking. "Now, the reason that I brought you all here, is because I've established a brewery up on this mountain.  And I can sell directly to the customers in question."

Pirate Time Chapter 5: The Navy Is Just Awesome
Navy soldiers were lining up, in front of the HQ building, all dressed in white and blue uniforms, with a fierce dedication to their jobs, as red sirens blared, with red lights shining.
"Lads, lads, calm down!" A buff, shirtless bald captain with an eyepatch said, as he stepped out to the field. "Captain Shack here... giving a report: Lieutenant Copper was recently captured by both the Maroon Pirates, and the Max Pirates."
"No...!" One of the soldiers whined.
Captain Shack gave the soldier a death glare. "Now laddie, now isn't the time for that." He then faced forward. "We have to prepare for the attack, and for the arrival of the esteemed Lieutenant Novana." He paused. "...Oh and also from Basil Island, Lieutenant Blonde, who not long ago, was your ranks, lads.  We are to treat them both as valuable assets.  That means Novana."
Cue a tall woman with purple hair, in a slightly form-fitting uniform, walking out of the HQ base, looking prepared

Pirate Time Chapter 4: The Maroon Pirates
These were the first words that were spoken that day: "...LAND AHOY!!!"
Max's eyes slowly rose open, with him yawning. "Aghhhh... shut up, you two, I'm trying to get through my hangover..."
"Rise and shine, Max," Carmen said, offering Max a roasted tuna.
"...Wait, how in the hell did you roast that...?" Max asked.
Mao raised his right arm. "Carmen had the flames going, I did the rest.  It's rotisserie style." He then brought out a tri-pronged fork. "Carmen forged this.  I just used it."
"...How... what... fuck it, not important." Max decided as he stretched out, before looking around. "...Wait, I think I recall... we followed these Copper Pirate guys..." He then faced infront of him, to see that The Lowrider was already docked onto a sandy shore, with the boat tied to a palm tree. "...Of course..." He then saw the Copper Pirate banner hanging on one of the palm tree branches. "...Ugh."
The three of them soon got off The Lowrider, eating the large tuna when they found a spot o

Pirate Time Chapter 3: Sailing The Aratian Waters
Max popped open a Shellshack Rum bottle, before pouring the rum in cups. "...A toast, to this crew.  We're three schmucks, sailing on these waters.  And with my bro Mao, and the new hot chick Carmen, we're gonna SHOW this world, a thing or two."
Carmen downed her shot. "...Ahh... *hic* I joined... ya know... I'm one of those hot chicks..."
"...Right on." Mao replied, downing his shot. "Woah... uh... why... didn’t it take long to get a hot chick...?"
"Bitch, you, like, da ONLY boy who questions that shit..." Carmen answered, downing three other shots at this point, already looking buzzed. "...You're like, studs and shit.  Just go for chicks who have low self esteem!  That's all you have to do!"
"...No, I want a challenge." Max said.
"Well good fucking luck, then," Carmen said. "...No I'm serious, you gotta have sex with these higher-up ladies, show them what fucking for.  Same with me and higher-up dudes.  Maybe you and I will have sex.  Who know

Pirate Time Chapter 2: Carmen And Novana
*St. Mora Harbor, Morellos*
Mao tied The Lowrider, on one of the wood poles on the white stone deck. "Aaand... we are HERE!!"
Max stepped onto the deck, taking in the sights. "...Woah."
St. Mora, from the looks of it, was a town, with all the buildings being made of white stone.  The people who walked around, looked to be wearing nicer clothing, with refined hairstyles, refined postures, and a generally more wholesome attitude.
Of course, this also meant that the first person to meet Max and Mao, was a Morellian Navy Lieutenant, this one wearing boots, bright white uniform, and a sword at her side.  She herself was black, with her black hair held in her white hat. "Piracy, no matter how small the crew, is a punishable offense.  Explain now, why you've landed on this island."
"...Shit, action already?" Max asked, cracking his neck. "Alright lady, if you must know, we landed on this island, to hopefully get laid, to have a chick join our crew, get some resources, so

Pirate Time Chapter 1: Beginnings Start Somewhere
So, insert some dumb, pointless prologue here about this being based on the 17th century, and then not, and then say it’s actually taking place in the mid-2000’s, because really, you can’t make up your damned mind.  But like, yeah, mid-2000’s.  What a time to be alive.  What with 9/11, Jon Steward absolutely owning Fox during his tenure of the Daily Show, cinematic universes not existing quite yet, the Nintendo Wii coming out, Teen Titans being associated with the best of Cartoon Network, and One Piece having a cringe dub that puts a whole new spin on the word “bad”... yeah, those were the days.  We could count on third movies of trilogies to safely be bad, given X-Men: The Last Stand, and Spider-Man 3.
But, fuck it.  Let’s mix in pirates, cutlasses, navies, gold coins, and wi-fi together.  Why?  Because we fucking can.

"...Is this thing on?"
"Zoro, I can't see!"
"Are we truly going through these motions again, mortals?"
"Oooo, I wonder if I can stab people today...!"
"Chara, stop with the damn murder boner, for God sake."
"...Wait, why the fuck is it so dark in here?  Lemme turn the lights on."
"MAO, DON'T!!!!"
Mao turned the lightswitch on... and saw before him, Luffy, Zoro, Yusuke, Hiei, Chara, his heterosexual life parter Maxwell (with the white spiky hair), and the Gallade of the same name, all tied together with rope.
"...Okay, if this is some group bondage orgie shit going on," Mao began, "then fuck ALL of you, I'm not fucking doing it." He then pointed at Chara. "...Also, how the fuck did you become EGO'S waifu?"
"Fanart." Chara answered.
"...Ask a stupid question, you get an answer that makes WAY too much sense..." Mao said, getting a migraine.
"I don't get what YOUR deal is," Zoro said. "We just went through the

Why Fairy Tail Crashed And Burned
Just getting this out there: I never outright hated this series.  It just... wasn't that good.  No, scratch that: it was really fucking BAD.  Every character that wasn't Wendy, was extremely base breaking.  Friendship speeches were fucking everywhere.  Powers were inconsistent as fuck.  Erza just went on winning rampages, even during arcs where she was supposed to be screwed over for the time being.  They never really DID anything with establishing governmental forces, that could effectively hold our heroes back.  And there's that whole thing with the elephant in the room...
Bootlegging ideas off of One Piece.  Yes I fucking said it, this show and manga was TERRIBLE about that.  The entire guild is our "nakama" group (this guild having around 30 people or so), a few characters and scenes look like they were ripped straight off of pivotal One Piece moments, and some of the character DESIGNS also have this going on.

It was at a beach that someone had woken up.  They... were lost.  Confused.
Where am I? They thought.
Just then, something appeared before the someone's sight.
It was...a Fennekin.
"Hey," she said. "Are you okay?"
The stranger looked at the Fennekin strangely and said, "I'm... fine..." The person then got up. "Wait, did you just... talk?  Since when did Pokemon talk?"
"Uh...since forever, I guess," the Fennekin answered. "Then again, you should know. You're a Pokemon, too."
The stranger froze. "Wait... you're kidding, right?" The stranger then walked over to the water, and looked in the reflection.  They saw a Raltz.
"AH!" The Raltz said in shock. "Since when was I a Raltz?"
"Did I miss something?" the Fennekin asked, tilting her head in confusion. "Maybe you hit your head when you fell down from the sky or something."
Hit my head...? the Ralts thought.  Realizing that he, (as he remembered his gender suddenly), d

Writing Tips - Once Upon a Time
Without exception, the most important line in your fiction prose is the first one. In many times it determines whether or not your writing gets a chance at all. As such, it should be the last new thing that you write. Once you finish writing your entire novel, then you go back and add the appropriate first sentence. Not only does this help you avoid Blank Page Syndrome, but doing it after everything else allows you to create a very poignant opening line (although you can start out with a proto-first line). Everything else I am going to tell you today, every piece of advice, can and has been broken in the past. Writing opening lines is an art, not a science. And let's start with one that I am currently trying to fix
Never start out with "my name is"
The most famous rule breaker: Moby Dick. Let me tell you why this is a bad idea. It's really easy to explain, actually. "My name is Jim." I don't care. "You can call me Sarah." I don't care. "They call me Boogalogadoodoo." I don't fuc

This is to get me to a comfortable position on deviantART. That being slightly loaded in points.

Just kidding. It's for me to show my awesomeness and the awesomeness of others to, well, others. Or something.

You must be logged in to donate.


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?

Are you a deviant with a job?

...Link remembers everything now.
All four Divine Beasts are now saved, and brought back to the side of “Fuck Ganon”.

That is why I didn’t respond on here.

Now, onto the memories!
JESUS, though, that is a lot of journals I’ve been making lately, yeesh...!

But, yes, as you will see in pictures later, I will be getting myself a GOOD sketchbook, loads of good pencils, and GOOD erasers (they are white erasers).  That... and also a proper pencil sharpener.

If I’m gonna make Pirate Time and Guild Time the next big things on here, I am gonna draw people in order to make that happen.  So look forward to those drawings now.
I haven’t beaten Breath Of The Wild (getting close to it, though), but I HAVE gotten all the memories and shit, enough to get a general gist on who it is that we should give the most focus on, arc-wise: Zelda.  She’s the one who has went through the most drastic transformation, and is fighting Calamity Ganon on her own, before you get everyone else to help out.

But... it was never Zelda that I empathized with the most, but rather Link.  HE’S the guy that was asleep for a hundred years, HE’S the guy that is trying to convince the four races that he’s Champion enough to tame the Divine Beasts (or in the case of the Zora, trying to convince the ELDERS that he did not want Mipha to die on him).  And HE’S the guy that is making the effort to actually LIVE in this new time period 100 years ahead of his own, possibly dressing as a woman in order to help out here or there.

Also, just in general, I’ve usually always defaulted to lending my sympathies with Link, whether he was expressionless or not.


Ego-Man25's Profile Picture
Grant Nesselroad
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
I officially live in Texas now, I'm a writer, not a fighter (and also I draw shit, yeah), 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: Yusuke Urameshi, is the best anime character to ever grace the medium. End of bullet. Now look at these stamps.
