Alex woke up from his restless slumbers by Yena's mother knocking on the door.
Disoriented, he looked around, immediately missing Zigzagoon's comforting presence.
Then the whole situation came back to him, and with that his bad mood returned as well.
He sighed, and then realised Yena's mother was talking to him from the other side of the door.
" and Yena has started packing all her things, she would like some advice on the supplies you two should bring." She paused. "Alex? Are you awake?"
He scraped his throat, that felt dry. "Yes, I'll be out in a minute."
"Okay, dear. I have some breakfast downstairs, if you're hungry."
Alex scrambled around to find the sneakers he had wildly kicked out the day before.
While putting them on, his thoughts wandered off to his Zigzagoon.
His Pokémon had done it, had successfully found him a Pokédex!
Alex smiled at the thought, a rare expression for him nowadays.
A Pokédex would mean his long-awaited

Complicated life, complicated ways..
Everyday we fight just for another day..
We live for the future..
We cling to the past..
And we never enjoy the present..
As long as it lasts.
We fall for those who'd never be ours..
And we spend sad and lonely hours.
We forget who love us,
We forget who really cares,
And run behind illusions
And all we find is tears.
We take a moment to judge others
But never admit that we're wrong
And we hurt others just to show
That we're the ones who are strong.
Complicated life, complicated ways,
But it's us who make it more complicated
With every passing day.

Yena laughed as her Oshawott sprinted across the room, leaped on her desk and managed to catch the treat before it hit the wall. She clapped in her hands as she crossed the room, and scratched the top of Oshawott's head.
"You're getting better at this. Want an even trickier toss this time?"
Oshawott grinned, and nodded happily.
Yena turned around and leaned against her desk, getting another delicious Pokémon treat from her pocket. She threw it across the room, her water Pokémon jumping after it with great enthusiasm.
She smiled, but didn't get to see the end of Oshawott's chase, as she was distracted by a slight movement outside. Yena moved closer to the window, studying the person that was hanging around Professor Juniper's laboratory on the other side of Nuvema Town. The young man seemed to currently be peeking through one of the windows, while slowly walking by. Apparently not satisfied with the result, he turned around, walking by again,

I guess my wanting to become a Pokémon trainer started with family tradition. My older sister trains Pokémon; so did our father, and his mother and her siblings, and their parents before them. My doing the same seemed like it was only inevitable. It did happen eventually, of course, but there are times when it felt way too long in coming. And back when I was ten, it felt like it'd never happen.
Helen Masters had been dreading this day ever since before she'd given birth to her second child, since she'd found out about her husband's family and its secrets. She knew full well what the reaction to these words would be, how they'd be handled especially in the wake of what happened to her first child, and she hated saying them, but nonetheless, she felt like she had to say them.
Alex looked up at her mother in shock. "What? But Mom, I'm ten years old now! All the other kids at school are becoming Pokémon trainers!"

A while ago I managed to find a copy of Stephenie Meyer's Breaking Dawn(BD) in the public library. Since there was no third book of the series, Eclipse in sight; I had to make do and borrow Breaking Dawn first even though I still haven't read the third book.
Frankly, I had only watched the Twilight movie last year, then recently I had read New Moon from beginning to the end, and now I'm reading Breaking Dawn, the order of it doesn't sound quite right since I jump the third book, still I had read a few reviews on Eclipse so I'm confident that I know what the plotline was about so I had no worry following the plot of BD. Plus, since I'm not going to waste my money to even order a copy of Eclipse or Twilight from the library (you got to pay a small fee for your order when using the library's service), I would have to wait to finish all of the four books

So here we go!
The little plot synopsis is pissing me off. It mentions how "realistic" Bella and Edward's relationship is. This is actually dead-on. Vampires aside, this book is scarily accurate on how abusive relationships work from the woman's viewpoint.
Hmm, dedicated to her big sister Emily. Funny, she shares the name with a character who is also in an abusive relationship. Please, please, please let this be a case of unfortunate implications.

She ignored it until her brother came in. (He had moved in with her since his change because she wanted to be there for him)
He was wearing a bathrobe and carrying a coffee he had gotten from Tim Hortons, sipping it slowly.

I wasn't thrilled about it, but I made the best of it, focusing on school and building a relationship with the one Pokémon I had. It helped a bit that Cass opted to retire from active journeying after finishing up the Hoenn League the next year. Granted, I still had her achievements to match, but I felt a little easier knowing that she wanted to try for contests rather than gyms.

Still, Geno didn't bewail his exhaustion. Really, he brought it on himself, staying up the previous night (the first night they shared together, in Moleville Inn) to watch the stars. He couldn't help it, being fascinated by seeing his home from a different angle, identifying the stars he all knew once before. He had spent the entire night, up until the sun peeked over the mountains, counting them all, smiling wistfully at each one he recognized, as if seeing an old friend.
It wasn't like he regretted it all. He just felt that he could've gotten in at least an hour or two of rest. Especially now when he could hardly keep his eyes open. Though wooden they were, his clunky eyelids felt incredibly heavy.

Mary Sues in 9 Simple StepsHow to Create a Mary Sue in Nine Simple Steps!Mary Sues in 9 Simple Steps4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
So easy, even Stephanie Meyer can do it!
Step Number One: Create a Name
Just like the title suggests, the first step is to come up with a super fantabulous name! Make sure that it's nice and long, having at least a first, middle, and last name, or more! If you're having trouble, use something shiny or attractive, such as gems, colors, precious minerals, flowers, or generally pleasing things like "Star" or "Sunshine". Mixing two or more pleasing words into one is also acceptable!
If you're going for a darker-type Mary Sue, perhaps one that all the other characters fear or one who's stereotypically goth/emo, think of anything dark or with the word "blood" or "black" in it, or anything suggesting the said words. Heck, even go for poison, like "Anthrax" or "Nightshade". Anything deadly or fearsome is encouraged!
Step Number Two: Choose a Gender and Sexual Orientation
For the typical Mary Sue, simply
Eclipse novella ReviewReview: The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner by Stephenie MeyerEclipse novella Review3 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
The background of the story:
In Eclipse, book 3 of the Twilight saga series, the 'bad' vampire Victoria wanted to build an army of vampire newborns in order to get even with Bella and the Cullens. To achieve her goal, she created a sidekick called Riley and put him in charge of training/controlling the newborns she had made. The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner deals with what is going on with those newly created, confused and blood thirty newborn vampires, and focuses on one of the newborns, a young girl called Bree Tanner.
PS: In this review the word 'vampire' is being used very loosely, not that I actually acknowledge sparkling disco balls really deserve to be called vampires anyway.
The Story itself:
The story is told from Bree Tanner's perspective, and focused on the last few days of her 'second life', Bree had to depend on her new vampiric convent/group for survival even though she felt no co

Hello ladies and gentlemen! Time for ranting on Stephenie Meyer's (SMeyer for short) 'novel' has arrived! This time it's New Moon, the book 2 of her so-called Twilight 'saga'.
I discovered a copy of New Moon(NM) in the children/teenagers section of public library. So in order to make the most out of public resource, I borrowed it and read I had struggled my way through the whole thing, now there's some opinion I would like to share (not all of them are bad remarks though):
*slight plot-spoiler warning*
1. What is this book doing in the teenager corner of the library? It's not material suits for teenagers, plain and simple. It contents unhealthy relationship, a girl who obviously HAD NO LIFE outside of her boyfriend and lot of suicidal attempts after the said boyfriend dumped her! That would totally screwed up their concept on love and relationship damn it!

And when I heard someone say that Twilight is better than Harry Potter I felt inspired to make a comparison and show that Harry Potter far more superior than Twilight.
