She hates me.
I know she hates me.
The look she had given him was seared deep into his memory. That look of hurt and confusion and utter betrayal. He would never forget it, and he would never forgive himself for putting it on her face.
He hadn’t meant to be harsh—but he was just so angry. If they had barely escaped with their lives, what did that mean for Lance? It means he’s dead, that’s what. That was the thought that pushed him over the edge and caused him to snap at her. And that resulted in her looking at him like she no longer knew who he was, almost as if she was…scared of him.
Casey spent the truck ride trying to convince himself he didn’t care what she thought because it was all her fault Lance was gone. But every time he tried to be angry with her, he saw that expression on her face. Then his anger melted. He couldn’t do it. Once he had time to cool down and start thinking clearly again, the gu

Lyra let out a yawn and stretched her arms out as wide as they can. She rubbed her eyes as she turned off her Poke-larm clock. Scratching the messy tumble of hair on her head, her face lit up with a bright smile.
"Finally! Today is the day!" She threw off her covers and practically flew out of bed. "Crys! Crys! Wake up! Today is the day!"
She jumped into the bed on the other side of the room. Her sister was less enthusiastic.
"What is the matter with you?" Crystal looked over at her Poliwag clock on the nightstand next to her bed, "Lyra it's six-freaking-a.m.! Get off my bed!"
She launched a pillow at her sister, knocking the brunette of the bed, Lyra threw the pillow back onto the bed, sticking her tongue out, "That was highly uncalled for! Fine, sleep, but don't come crying to me when Gold and I get the best starters and you're left with something you don't want!"

Ametrine burst from her bedroom, the "thump" of her tiny feet a signal to her father, his little girl was awake and ready to play. She peaked into the living room from the hallway entrance, spying her father's form on the couch, seemingly reading something she couldn't see. Deciding on impulse, she tip-toed behind the couch, arms outstretched for her surprise jump attack.
Just as she was about to jump her father twisted in his spot, snatching her up and standing at the same time, tossing her into the air. She giggled and hugged her father, poking his nose before pouting a bit.
"Daaaady, you're supposed to let me get you!" She tried pouting, a smile trying to break through.
Red laughed and held her closer. "Now why would I do that when it's much easier to throw you into the air and TICKLE YOU!" He roared tickling her mercilessly.

I froze, rubbing my forehead muttering, "This journey is not about my relationship with Pigtails, it's about finding out about my family and the truth behind my mother's death. So stop thinking of her...she is just your rival for now."

December 2000, somewhere on Cinnabar Island:
My birthday was right around the corner and I was already peeking at the presents my mother had bought. I had the perfect hiding place here at the back of the couch, pillows and blankets around me. Well, at least I thought I had. My father's Persian had already found me and his head was now lying onto my hand, seeking comfort. As if lying on a rug in front of the fireplace wasn't comforting enough.
When my father walked into the room, I immediately knew something was wrong. My grandmother, whose real name I don't know until this day on, had been visiting and he wasn't pleased at all. My mother used to tell me that father was to inherit grandmother's company. It was a fine business which would make more money than being a gym leader would. But my father wasn't too keen on becoming the new Rocket boss. Well, he wasn't when they just met. She knew he was aiming for the position.

Prologue: We Were Only Supposed To Be Rivals
We were never meant to be friends, we were never meant to be in love, we were only supposed to be rivals. Hell at the beginning I didn't even want that, I had hated the cheerful grin that the pigtailed girl wore and I had never wanted to see it or her again. Fate though had something else in mind for us, something that when I first met her I would never have guessed was in store for us.
With a father like mine it was no wonder I turned out how I did. I admit it I was a jerk, a bastard, a cold despicable person that didn't deserve her even as just a rival. Though she was always there where ever I went, I sometimes wondered if she was stalking me or something. I bet to her I seemed to be the stalker with how I always wanted to battle her to prove that I was stronger, I was the better trainer even with how abused my pokemon.

The worse has passed now, Atreyu thought, sighing as he leaned back in his chair. In the past three days he had barely had a moment of rest; tending to Blayre had proven much more difficult than he had anticipated. He closed his eyes and rubbed them lightly. They watered and stung as he yawned, his limbs and mind heavy with the dense fog of sleep.
"How is he?" a cold, sweet feminine voice called.
Atreyu's eyes snapped open, his sister's voice jarring him out of an uneasy, light sleep. Noah stood lazily in the doorway, dressed in a floor length white satin gown. Idly, she twirled a bit of her hair around her pinkie finger, making the thin, deep purple ribbons she had artfully woven in her hair shine in the weak amber light of Blayre's suite.
"He will be fine, Sister," Atreyu said sleepily, turning his eyes back to his resting brother. "He is resting peacefully now, though he does cry out sometimes."

Kotone & the Silver Beast
I remember, when I was younger, of living in a luxurious mansion filled with all my heart's desires. Of course, that was a long time ago. Due to my father's uncanny habit of gambling away his late parents' fortune, we soon were broke. That was around the time I was about five or six years old. But, since then, we have had to live at a small farm, growing crops for our greedy landlord. Currently, I am tending to our tiny patch of carrots, tugging out weeds and watering the driest of the batch. Straightening my back, I groan as I feel my spine pop as I do so. The sun beats down on my mocha-colored head of hair, with fresh sweat beading on my forehead. I wipe my forehead with the back of my hand, squinting in the bright light. "It's really hot out today, Father..." I murmured, directing my faint complaint to the man working just a few feet away. He looks up; his back is permanently slouched from nearly a decade of hard labor, making h

"I don't even know why I'm crying." She sets the pokemon down and walks over to her bed and sits down. "Maybe it's because Red left without saying goodbye " Chuchu walks over to her trainer and looks up at her with concern. "Should I call him?" She holds up her pokegear and dials his number. "No! What if I'm bothering him? I don't want to be interrupting anything." She puts the pokegear on the side table and lies on her back. Little does Yellow know that Chu Chu jumped onto the table and called Red.
I jumped as my pokegear went off. Who's calling me? I look at the screen to see that it was Yellow. Yellow? Yellow! I can't believe I forgot to say goodbye to her before I left.

I got a window seat.
Even though I have flown on Reshiram too many times to count, I always get excited about flying. I figured taking off on a plane wouldn't be too different than on a Pokémon, but it took so much longer, making me impatient. It would start to back up slowly, turn, go straight and pick up speed, stop, and then go again. It took about fifteen minutes for us to actually get into the air, and I was shaking in my seat. N sat beside me looking bored as hell, and I resisted the urge to hit him and make him as excited as I was. It was beautiful.
I didn't have my Pokeballs on me. No one could on the plane; they were all stowed away beneath. I would have loved to have Serperior to enjoy it with me, but according to security, it was a safety hazard.
I spent the four hours chatting with N and watching people. We whispered to each other and pointed out the obvious foreigners. To N and I's surprise, there were people from Germany on the plane. It was

CHARACTER CREATING TIPS
Part 2: Designing
Here we will address the actual designing process, helping you pick the best features for your original character, these are not rules, just suggestions to consider.
#1. Hair should match the characters personality and lifestyle.
Granted a person can have whatever hairstyle they like, but they also take into consideration what they do for a living, or a hobby.
If the character is an active one, like a fighter for example, they might want short hair that's easy to maintain and quick to fix. Or medium length hair that can easily be pulled back into small ponytails and buns, but don't rule out long hair, just consider what your character would like best.
If the character is a semi-active character, that relies more on others thing to do its dirty work, like machines or magic, they'll probably have longer hair that they can put up into whatever they please.
Also, if the character is royalty, or of high-rank, he/she might prefer long hair to help sh

Autumn in Viridian Forest was the most beautiful thing to behold: the leaves on the numerous trees were changing their color from green to red, orange, or gold and releasing their holds on the branches to slowly, lazily spiral to the forest floor. This was one of Yellow Armarillo's favorite seasons. At the moment, she was making her way through the forest, leaves crunching under her boots. She stopped when she reached a small lagoon, which was partially hidden by the tall trees and dense undergrowth. A few weeks ago, she had stumbled upon this place with Red. Since then, they had made it their 'official' meeting place.
Red. He was just the person she was waiting for.
Yellow sat cross-legged at the edge of the water and released Chuchu from her pokeball. The pikachu scampered over to her trainer and nuzzled her cheek affectionately.

KNOW YOUR CHARACTERS INSIDE AND OUT
That's today's lesson. You have to develop all your characters well enough they become real people. Except those with one line only, like Officer #1 or Hot-Dog Dude. Those are walking puppets to populate your world.
But your primary and secondary characters must be well developed, there's no way around it. Their actions must be driven by their personality and back story. Even though most of this information will never see the light of day, it is imperative they exist through your characters' actions.
If you need a character to behave a specific way to drive the plot forward, it must be planted beforehand and be in line with the previously established personality, it can't be out of character.
My process starts with ten questions I fished here and there and a couple of reminders that form my own Character Bio Sheet. I like to answer them in excruciating detail

Create a Fictional Character
Creating fictional characters are probably the most difficult part of writing. How does one create a believable, well-developed character? A person cannot just pull something out of their butt and call it a character. A character needs to be thought out, needs to be planned. Characters are the people who tell the story that the author is writing. It needs to be made out to be as real as the author can make it. That leaves the question, how does a person create a fictional character?
First thing that needs to be done is to give the faceless, undeveloped character a gender and a name. A person should not name the character after themselves, unless the author is writing an autobiography. This essay is talking about a fictional character. Give the character a name all its own, and do not name it after its personality. If the character is charitable, do not name it Charity.
The next step is as vital as the gender and name. The character needs
How To 'Flesh Out' an OCHow To 'Flesh Out' an OC4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
The aggregate of features and traits that form the
individual nature of some person or thing.
In this tutorial I will guide you through a way to 'flesh out' an Original Character (Also known as an OC). Before we begin, let's go through the basics.
A character is quite simply one who possesses qualities that define them from someone else. Every character is original and unique. A character can not only be human, but an animal, an alien, or anything that the imagination can come up with.
However, characters are often difficult to create, because to put it bluntly, you are in a sense creating a new being. This being needs the same kinds of traits and characteristics you possess, but can't be your own. They have to be original. In this case, many young writers and artists forget how hard it is to make a character and forget the complex details that enhance a character.
Fleshing out is a term used commonly in developing characters. It means to add additional det
