Brave New World Ch.4: Baptized by fire
Time never went by so slowly inside of a moving car. At least not for Juliette. She was now on her way to her new school, Akala Trainer Academy. The situation reminded her of a time when she went zip-lining during a school trip and the instructor pushed her because she didn’t dare to jump herself. Even though this time Juliette’s life wasn’t in danger, it was just as scary to her. Besides, the sudden change from a rural setting to a reasonably big city was a shock to her. She only hoped that the new school was nothing like the one in Anistar City.
“Julie, is your schedule at hand?” her father asked without taking his eyes off of the road.
“Yes Dad, but I haven’t look at it yet. I will when I get there.”
Édith— who was there as well to give her granddaughter some support— shook her head and looked at Juliette. “Are you saying you aren’t excited to know about the subjects you will be taking?”

Brave New World Ch.3: To live the present
”Ah, freedom. No one really appreciates it until they lose it.”
Juliette was spending her second Sunday in Alola locked in her room. All she wanted to do was be alone; left in a never ending loop of negative thoughts. ”What if they say this or that? What if they do x or y to me?” That is just a small sample of the destructive hypothesis in her mind. Her first day of school in Alola was all she could think about. Even her mother, who’s normally too busy with her job, noticed Juliette’s taciturn attitude before leaving for the Pokémon Center.
Sitting on her bed with a sketchbook placed in her lap, Juliette was occupied with drawing a building that was supposedly a school, only that a sign reading “Jail” stood on the roof. She was never too good at drawing buildings, but at that moment she couldn’t care less. Poppy laid next to her, taking a curious glance at her trainer’s work every now and then. She also tapp

Brave New World Ch.2: Doom or destiny
The sound of the alarm going off woke up Juliette. The first rays of sun illuminated her brand new bedroom; the one where she had slept in for the past two days. In a matter of minutes, an orangish hue caused by the sunlight took over the room. It was just seven a.m., but the King Star was already out and prompting the people in town to wake up. That’s one of the many things that surprised Juliette and her family during their first two days in Alola; unlike in Anistar City, the inhabitants of Paniola Town woke up very, very early. The previous day  Mainard got startled by a man screaming outside early in the morning. It turned out he was just a farmer guiding a herd of Mareep.
With a quick movement, Juliette turned off the alarm and left her bed. As much as she loved being in bed, she had no trouble waking up so early. She was used to it after all. Going to school always required her to wake up around 7:30 a.m. At least in Kalos, because she still didn’t know how schoo

Life's Treasures Ch.5: Kalos is eggcellent
The group’s first night in Kalos went as smooth as silk. Like Giles warned, they all ended feeling exhausted from the plane trip, so their first activity in Kalos was sleeping in their luxurious hotel rooms. Emily and Steven shared their bedroom while Giles slept in an individual one, not too far from theirs. It was important for them to rest well because their search for the mysterious Hoopa would begin the very next day. They wanted to waste no time.
As they planned, the next morning the trio left for Parfum Palace shortly after finishing their respective breakfasts. A very well dressed man standing next to the hotel’s entrance opened the door for them as he wished for them to have a nice day, demonstrating the politeness Kalosians are known for. ”I hope everybody else is like this.” Emily thought to herself as she and her two companions left the luxurious hotel behind.
“So, where are we going now?” Steven asked casually.

Life's Treasures Ch.4: Lumiose landing
After three and a half days of arrangements and constant calls to check if everybody was ready, the trio had finally made it into the plane that would take them to Kalos. Needless to say, both Emily and Steven were stoked, although for different reasons. It was Emily’s first time both riding a plane and traveling to a region other than Hoenn. In Steven’s case, he couldn’t wait to get to Kalos and get his precious stone collection back. As for Giles, he’s already from Kalos so going there wasn’t all that exciting and overwhelming for him. Despite that, going back to his home region was always fun.
The pilot had announced recently that they would be taking off in about five minutes and that was noticeable in the air. People were getting increasingly talkative, maybe in an attempt to calm down their nerves. No matter what they say, everybody feels a bit nervous when it comes to traveling by plane. It’s an universally acknowledged truth. That applied esp

Life's Treasures Ch.3: Souvenirs and baguettes
Emily nearly forgot how exciting getting ready for a long journey was, especially now that it involved going to a whole different region. In only three days she, Steven and their new friend were leaving for the Kalos region where they would luckily find Hoopa and make it return everything it stole back to its rightful place. If they didn’t succeed… well, at least they would be able to brag about having been to Kalos. Who doesn’t dream of visiting the region?
--------------------
When the previous day Emily told her parents that she and Steven were leaving for Kalos in less than four days with a person they just met, they couldn’t help but question her decision. “Kalos? Why?” Her father asked with his eyes wide open, putting down all of sudden the newspaper he was reading.
“Remember that note I left earlier saying that Steven needed me for something important?” Emily, who was sitting across her parents, gulped in one sitting half a mug of

Life's Treasures Ch.2: Talk of the town
As soon as they left the house, Steven closed the door with an annoyed expression. It was evident that he really didn’t feel at ease leaving his house unattended, especially after what happened. He walked towards Emily, who waited for him a few steps ahead, and offered his arm for her to hold it. Then they marched towards the Space Center, where they really hoped to find some answers.
“I hope everything is on its place when we come back!” Steven frowned slightly, looking back at his house.
“I don’t think you will lose anything else, it looked like the thief was only interested on the rocks.” Emily tried to comfort her boyfriend, which given the situation was pretty difficult.
“But it doesn’t explain the other thefts,” said Steven. “What criteria does that dirty thief follow?”
“No idea, it’s just so random… Towers, rocks and missiles. And what’s up with those islands?” The islands. Emi

New Profile URLs
DeviantArt is constantly evaluating better ways to serve our community, from new features to smaller updates and bug fixes. Today, we're making a change to the format of profile URLs that will have a positive impact moving forward. In order to better serve you, we’re changing profile URLs from username.deviantart.com to deviantart.com/username
Don't worry, your old URLs will still work, and you can continue to use them. Your old links/URLs will always redirect to your new ones.
We know a lot of deviants are attached to their URLs, so the decision to make this change was not done lightly. Part of the decision-making process involved surveying active deviants, and we discovered the overall sentiment was fairly neutral. Most people did not strongly prefer one or the other — as long as old URLs redirected. But, most importantly, we believe this change will be beneficial for you.

I mentioned in an older status update some time ago that in Brave New World, Xurkitree wouldn’t be the only “special” Electric type living in Lush Jungle. To be honest part of me wanted to wait until I reached that point in the story to reveal who’s that pokémon, but (what I’m about to say will give away which one is it haha) with the new Pokémon movie coming up in less than a day and a half, I can’t resist it. As you can guess, it’s Zeraora :D

This particular one is a female that lives with her cubs (whom I’m still trying to figure out how they might look like besides just being a smaller version of Zeraora) in the most secluded area of Lush Jungle, where Xurkitree also dwells. The first time this Zeraora is seen in the story, she is fighting the aforementioned Ultra Beast over the territory and her cubs. She is very territorial and protective of her progeny, so she won’t hesitate to attack anyone she deems as a threat. Juliette witnesses the whole scene and is especially concerned about Xurkitree, who she saw for the first time earlier the same day. She also ends up catching a really bad cold because of a torrential downpour caused by a storm Zeraora summons, but that’s another story

Despite how territorial and protective this Zeraora is, there’s someone who manages to earn her trust and that will be Mallow. Since she spends so much time at Lush Jungle, I figured she could end up bonding with the pokémon eventually thanks to an incident in which one of the cubs wanders away from its pack. Mallow could find it, scared, and try to look for its family along with it. At some point, the mother comes across them. Obviously, Zeraora is scared at first and threatens to attack Mallow using Plasma Fists, thinking she is going to harm her cub. But the girl soon shows that she has no ill intentions. After that, I can see Mallow bring them leftovers from her family’s restaurant from time to time, this way she ensures that they have something to eat.

And that’s all I can say for now about this Zeraora’s character. I hope this status was worth the read ^^
Remember when I mentioned in that one journal that I had plans for Emily and her story? Well, I’ve been talking about it with my friend Xenia lately and... just consider everything you know about Emily Davies outdated, obsolete. Many things are changing and I can’t wait to tell more about it

As someone who likes to use music as inspiration, it’s fascinating to me how much of it can be drawn from a single song. Lately I’ve been obsessed with this song



It makes me think of one of the last arcs of Brave New World, namely the one where Juliette goes to the Ultra Ruin and confronts Guzzlord. I see this place as a dystopian society where only a few people remain and they act like some sort of tribe, I have Mad Max in mind when I say this (although I didn’t really watch the movie. I need to research more on dystopian societies). I can see them being led by a woman who is fierce at first (especially because Juliette is an outsider) but eventually reveals her true nature as a strong willed person who only wants to lead her people to a better place and protects them from the threat that is Guzzlord. I also see them reunite in a very old and ruined bar where oddly the sign is the only completely intact thing: it’s called Orchid Club, like the song.

Speaking of music, I recently discovered an awesome band called Autolux and I can see Juliette being into them...if they existed in the Pokémon world, that is. I imagine her listening to their songs mostly in the afternoons and especially on Friday after coming from school, satisfied with the thought that she won’t be going there there for at least two days. Here are a couple of my favorite songs from them



Pride

I AM PROUD

Made with pride by the DeviantArt community BROWSE ALL ART

I got the idea of making this journal from :iconweirda-s-m-art: she made a journal answering some questions from a Tumblr post regarding original characters and I found it interesting. Let’s face it, I barely talk about mine and I thought this would be a good chance to loosen up because even after all this time...I’m still afraid of being told my characters are stupid/boring/cliché (it already happened once and I almost quit writing and drawing about them).

Which OC is your oldest, creation wise?
That would be Emily, definitely!

[New bio] Emily Davies Ref by ComanderSprings

She was was the first ever serious OC I made on this site. Like I said countless times before, she was inspired by my playthrough of Alpha Sapphire. I originally created her as a way to express my views on the events of said game but she became something bigger and I ended up spawning ideas for different arcs as time went by. I got to write a few chapters of the Kalos arc of the story before it was put in an undefined hiatus. However, I might have some new plans for her. I still need to think it through before making them public.

Which OC is your newest?
Another Pokémon OC (pretty much all of my OCs are from Pokémon, heh), Ulva

Ulva's Ref + WIP bio in description by ComanderSprings

Ulva is a member of the Ultra Recon Squad and she is set to appear in Brave New World in the near-ish future. I started working on her concept the day after the trailer revealing the Ultra Recon Squad came out. I just found that group of people so fascinating that I wanted to create a new character that was involved with them :D

A couple of fun facts about her: originally Ulva had a big hatred towards Necrozma because she viewed him as a tyrant, given that it stole the light from their world. But after playing through Ultra Sun and seeing how he only did that because the people from Ultra Megalopolis injured him badly first, I changed it to where she only wants it to calm down and return the light to their world. She has been friends with Dulse since childhood but upon growing up, Ulva developed feelings towards him that are unknown to her. I headcanon that people from Ultra Megalopolis doesn’t understand the concept of romantic love so, she will have a tough time learning about it :icondignitylaughplz:

Have you ever scrapped one of your ocs and used their backstory / interests / etc. for a newer one?
This is a strange one for me since I never talked about it in public but yes, I did scrap some minor concepts for characters (but who doesn’t?). Although there’s a notorious one and that would be… *drumroll* Emily and Steven’s daughter. Shortly after Gladion and the Aether Foundation were revealed, the possibility of having the Alola arc of Emily’s story happen quite a few years into the future was really tempting...and pairing her daughter with Gladion was an even bigger temptation. I’m so, SO glad I got rid of her because everytime I think about her my blood boils. Her whole character was reduced to drooling (not literally, of course :lmao: ) over Gladion and trying to change him with the excuse of “wanting to see him happy”. As you know, I have a different OC who is paired with Gladion and I’m much happier with her because there’s more to her character than being paired off with a canon character and her relationship with Gladion is much healthier than the one this OC would have had.

Which OC is your favorite? Unexpected favorite?
I don’t really have an unexpected favorite but when it comes to my favorite character, that would be Juliette

[Ref] Juliette Ronson (WIP bio in description) by ComanderSprings

I don’t know why, it’s probably just because of how hard I worked on her character and her story. It’s probably also because of the always helpful input I got from my friends, especially Weirda and :icontacticianxenia: They help me a lot to polish her and her story :)

Do you have a process when it comes to making OCs? Can you make one out of thin air or do you take months to build them?
To create a new OC I need to have a really solid concept for them and know how/where I’m going to use them. Creating characters used to be easier for me but now I need to think about them thoroughly; their appearance, their personality, their relationships with other characters… It’s very important for me to know that they do have a reason to exist. So yeah, I could say that coming up for a new character is a rare occurrence for me, although sometimes I’m jealous of those people who come up with a new OC every week.

Is there a OC you have that just doesn’t click with you yet?
I think that would be Giles Fournier from Life’s Treasures. I’m not saying I don’t like him or anything, I do! It’s just that I never got too attached to him in the first place. But maybe the fact that I barely wrote about Giles has something to do with it :roll:

Do you fandom OCs or purely original ones? If original, do you have any plans for them in terms of producing a short film, book?
Here I only post about my Pokémon OCs but yes, I do have original ones too! They all come from my The Sims 3 era and in fact, a few weeks ago I started collecting notes for a book centered on them :D

Do you ship any of your OCs together? Or do you ship them with friend’s?
No ^^; All of my OCs are either shipped with canon characters or not paired at all. However, I’d like to mention how my character Juliette is close friends with Xenia’s OC, Luana. Here you can see her reference sheet

Pokemon Sun OC: Luana Paoa by TacticianXenia

I’m really happy that Luana is such an important part of Brave New World, it wouldn’t be the same without her!

Historically, the internet has never been to kind to OCs. What’s one thing you wish people realized about OCs?
I wish they realized that behaving as if they had the rules to how an OC should be like doesn’t help anyone. Of course I hate Mary Sues, I find them annoying but come on, don’t pester people saying “This is a Sue trait! And this is too! Don’t do that or your character will be a Mary Sue!” It kills people’s creativity and their desire to share their stories. Also please, don’t be too hard on younger creators. Just because you have lots of experience making OCs it doesn’t mean they do too. Beginners don’t know as many things as more experienced artists do, so please don’t treat them like they are stupid. Don’t shun them for not doing everything correctly. Be there to help them learn and get better, not for making them want to stop uploading their works forever.

Here's a random question

How do you imagine any of the Recon Squad sounding?

For Dulse, I really love the idea of him sounding like Sub-Zero from Mortal Kombat

Sadly, the dialogue in the vid doesn't really sound like anything Dulse would say

For Soliera, something like D'vorah's voice could work (Minus the insect buzzing, if Pheromosa could talk, it could work for it to)
