When Pokemon talk, it's not a good idea to use slashes (/). I suggest using
either italics or * whenever a pokemon talks, otherwise it just won't work
out.
-------------------
Putting this in on basis of being pretty random and therefore probably because of NaRe.

Ok, I'm not totally sure where you were talking about in the first part, but
I'll look into that

It SEEMED lifeless until it coughed.

I'm setting up the story, it would be "meh" if I jumped around
everything has a point in description or storyline

I agree with your logic, but that's *not* the rule in the parlance of the
show/games/manga. The Pokemon franchise capitalizes a lot of things that
should be regular nouns. An example outside of a Pokemon species would be
"Poke Ball" which is always capitalized.

I, myself, thought you might be correct when I first started writing Pokemon
fanfiction and that the capitalization issue for species only existed when
they were being used as names, but that is not the case. I did my homework and
checking up revealed that, in defiance of English conventions, Pokemon species
are always capitalized.

Since I'm writing *Pokemon* fanfiction it makes sense to follow the convention
of the series I'm writing for, even if I think the rule would be better the
other way. It's really not that big a deal in any case, but I try to be
accurate in what I write.

Sorry, I thought it was only a pain when people used numbers when speaking
like.

"17."

Instead of using it like

"Seventeen."

A response to your review at http://www.fanfiction.net/r/6692416/

I'm sure I appreciate your efforts to 'change social dynamics' or whatever
nonsensical justification for your clearly self-substantiating actions you
subscribe to, but flaming random vocabulary assignments for including the
required vocabulary isn't exactly making FFN a better place.

This isn't a reply to tell you what a horrible person you are, or to bitch at
you for writing a review about my story. I'd like you to consider, however,
that some people happen to have larger vocabularies than you do without the
use of a dictionary or thesaurus, myself apparently included from the looks of
your review and your stories. I don't personally see a problem with using a
thesaurus to add a little flare to one's writing in the first place, though I
didn't use one for this piece. Perhaps that's just my taste in 'shitty
writing'.

Regardless, if writing scathing reviews about others' stories makes you feel
like an empowered individual, best of luck. Have a good one.

I was wondering where your perspective on 'shitty writing' came from... Well,
this is as far as I could get, I'm bored to tears with your writing style. To
be blunt, your writing is uninteresting and choppy, and, other than the
prodding you give the reader in the author's notes at the top, I for one am
not interested in finding out any of this 'mystery' you claim your story
contains.

It wasn't my intention to come and 'flame for flame' you like this is myspace
or something, but I've read a couple of your reviews on others' stories and,
quite frankly, you have no business inflicting your opinions on other writers
who put their hearts into their stories and post them here in hopes of
garnering some positive reinforcement and maybe some constructive criticism.
Your writing isn't good enough to merit the self-importance that you flaunt.

Judging from your unpolished, uninteresting writing style, I'd say you're a
moderately intelligent fourteen years old who needs to take some time out of
anime club to garner some social skills, and work on refining your technique
by reading something other than fanfiction for a while. However, your
livejournal indicates that you're twenty, and, as such, I'd like to suggest
that you try your hand at writing fiction that's not based on someone else's
creative property. Who knows, Stephanie Meyer got her shit published and look
at the garbage she cranked out - you've got about eight times more talent than
she does, despite wasting it reviewing stories of arguable merit.

P.S.; You should have reviewed one of my other stories, not my thirty minute
essay for English. I'd actually like to get some criticism on those. :P

Thank you for your review. I'm not going to start screaming about how "mean"
you were because you weren't. You voiced your opinion and I respect that.
You seem like the type who likes to put amateur fanfiction writers in their
place.
Some people need that.
I on the other hand could care less.
I appreciate the grammar and usage lesson but I'd rather hear it from a
teacher.
Maybe if you gave this fanfiction a chance you may enjoy it. You don't have to
by any means but who knows. Maybe I'll write something you like sometime.
I think I'll review some of your work now.
I'll be gentle.
Have a nice day,
Zgirl

You're kind of pissing me off, you know. I use japanese because they don't

Thank you, you've been sincere and you helped me a lot. I'm really glad
because I thought my english problems were just because of my vocabulary. Now,
I know I have to improve on grammar and other things.
I'll try my best, from now on I will seek for information to do what I wrote
better and better.

... that's one stinging critical review.....
and most stories and books have lots of dialogue. and the point is that the
main character is talking to humans, when, as it will be revealed, in his
past, he refused to talk to humans at all, and pretended to only understand
pokemon. now i said ur review was critical and stinging, but i didnt say it
was a bad review. and Pokemon species names r capatilized. thats the way they
do it in anime (Pokedex entries, EG) and the manga.

I made the corrections you suggested.
But for future reviews, just so you know, you don't have to be so vicious. I
will listen to you. :)

I can tell you're a talented writer, but it seems like you expecting me to
'get all up in your grill' about the suggestions you gave me (or you want me
to?). Nah, I learned from it. So 'zen' girl, I trust your judgement.

I corrected the first chapter and even polished the second one in the same
way.
You and Mary are the kind of reviewers I die for. You're not afraid to point
out mistakes.

Thank you for the lesson, I hope to learn from you again.

-Eve Nightingale

P.S. - The title of the story is "A New Glory". I wasn't sure I was going to
keep that one, so I tried to put in (Subject to change) afterwards, but it
took out the parentheses for some reason. DX

"Who knows, Stephanie Meyer got her shit published and look

...seriously. Only eight times. ONLY EIGHT? Also IDK how reviewing crap stories to hopefully make them better involves wasting talent.

I'm thinking it's meant to be jokingly insulting?

Well, I can kind of see it. "Why are you wasting your time on X rather than Y" comes up a lot in these contexts.

Yes, only eight. Have you read her stories? At least Meyer has an editor.

It's a waste of time. Fan fiction isn't really something that NEEDS to be reviewed; it's not like it's ever going to be published anywhere but on FFN and maybe deviantart. If she really wanted to help people, she would be doing her little review month on fictionpress instead. A lot of people on there WANT harsh criticism to get their stories up to scratch because they, unlike the squeeing, self-insert-writing weeaboo and pervy fanboys on FFN, are really going to try to get them published one day.

Anyways, that's all for me. I need to get off of livejournal, I can feel the teen angst and need to write about my shitty taste in music rising within me.

I am of the opinion that if Stephenie Meyer has an editor, said editor has been locked up somewhere and prevented from even touching the manuscripts. Have *you* read Twilight?
