Well, I appreciate your grammar lesson, but I will follow my teacher's
grammar, thank you very much. Also, to prevent confusion, I write, "The two
stared at the $20 bill," and, "The 2 staircases lead to the same place."
Well, and you basically just gave me a grammar lesson. Not a review on the
quality of my work. Did you even read the prequel? =.=;;

You clam up. Not everyone has your writing style.

I'm starting to think I need a special name for the universe where people think grammar is a style. It occurs to me that specialverse covers it, but I want something explicitly insulting. What's the current term for bratlings who won't pay attention because Mom bribed the therapist for an ADD diagnosis?

A response to your review at http://www.fanfiction.net/r/6674040/

Well, thanks for the vague compliment on the plot. Or, at least based on your
other review you gave me, this is the closest you get to a compliment. I
realize Mica is very... unoriginal at this point, but she does have a few
actual complications in her personality in that she has major trust issues and
doesn't have the same 'I'm going to be the best trainer in the world'
attitude. But she isn't very developed yet.

And you are right about the size boat walls. I think I'll edit and change the
kind of boat. And have you ever played the ranger games? The port only ever
holds two fishing people, and judging from their dialogue, they wouldn't care
if a girl jumped off a dock and onto a boat. Although I should have made it
more obvious that she was running through town and then hit the port.

Dialogue correction duly noted.

I was kind of going for indirect interaction from her father, as in he
disrupts how often he can play or be with Mica because he's always checking
everything she does. But again, I should make that more obvious.

I considered blocking you, because this is the second review I've gotten from
you and they really sting to read. But I've decided against it, since this is
actually helpful and I don't want to be an idiot twice in a row and ignore a
helpful review. I doubt you'll keep reading this tory, since you had an
intitial bad reaction to its main character, but I wouldn't mind getting more
reviews from you on any of my other stories (except for Uxie's Shadow, that
was my first and I know it's crap).
Have a nice day.

You wouldn't capitalize animal or mouse, so you shouldn't capitalize words
like pokemon or pikachu. The only time you should capitalize it is if you're
using it as the pokemon's name, ie, Ash's pikachu is called Pikachu. Similar
reasoning should be applied to terms like trainer, types like electric, moves
like thundershock, items like pokeballs and undertakings like journey.

Similarly, you shouldn't capitalize any other random words, like "your

Dialogue is written as "Hello," he said or "Hello!" he said, never
"Hello." He
said or "Hello." he said or "Hello," He said or "Hello" he
said. The only
exception to this is if the next sentence doesn't contain a speech verb, in
which case it's written as "Hello." He grinned, never "Hello," he
grinned or
"Hello," He grinned. Note that something isn't a speech verb just because it's
a sound you make with your mouth, so generally stuff like laughed or giggled
is in the second category.

Also, "I rewrite a old story but with random threats and slang LOL" was never
funny and is certainly not a parody.
So now I know it's the same person spamming my stories with this. That's kind of anticlimactic, I was thinking multiple people had the same idea.

Thank you for your helpful review!
I didn't know what I had to work on since my English isn't my first language

beta reader like you advised me to do! Thank you again for taking time to
reviewing my story! I am going to write harder to not only to improve my
story, but also to increase my grammar!

Not always. After your review, I Googled if dialogue tags are supposed to be
used for everything, and found that they AREN'T. Also, shut up. I don't care
what you think, except for it hurt me a bit. After all, I'm only a teenager
(and a young one at that). I was actually fighting the urge to delete this
story: "If you can't enjoy it, why should anyone else" and I was also going to
delete it from my computer. I'm new to this site, and so when I find my way
around (which is soon) I'm going to block you from my story.
I hate you. You have too much free time. I hate you. I hate you. I hate you. I

It's okay... I guess.

I agree with whoever said it was robotic.

You can't CP hatred, it dilutes the vitriol.

All of that in response to "This is how you do dialogue, and also this chapter is too short."

Yeah. I have to admit I'm a bit surprised by the recent turn of arguing dialogue. I can at least see where people are coming from with pokemon capitalization.

I saw all that vitriol and wondered what on Earth had gotten them so upset, whether they were just that attached to an OC you'd dissed or what. But, no, that was in response to advice on mechanics. WTF.

Wow, this is just depressing. People are getting this heated over *dialogue corrections*? These people seriously have never read an actual book in their lives have they?


I think "specialverse" works fine, it's fairly insulting in its own right. Maybe "idiotverse" or "reader-deficient-verse"?
