The Curious and the Shiny Chapter 17. Ambrette's Diners

Shine headed back home to the apartment, and cooled himself as he laid down in a shady spot. It had turned quiet without Curio, a silence he could've done with after his argument with her. The breeze came in lightly through the window. The clock ticked in the background. It would be a couple more hours until Tony came back home. To pass the time, he thought he'd check the network for any new messages, and he clicked in silence. Nothing new from Barley or anyone else. Shine entertained the idea of sending him a message instead, just to say hello, but as he stared at the blank text box, he might as well have been mute as no words could escape his lips. He abandoned the idea and went back to his usual pastime, getting a fantasy book out from his makeshift shelf and picking a spot in the indoor shade to continue where he left off. Sometimes, it was nice to escape into a completely diffe

The Limbo Arc.
"Time builds itself painlessly around them. Their only landmarks are the flavour of the moment they are living and the markings on the walls." - La Jetée 
The next day started on an odd note. At the moment Tony said his goodbyes to Shine to head to work, he came back in with a bucket covering his head, dripping with water and covered in glitter. Tony had shock written on his face, probably the most surprised Shine had seen him in a long time. Shine himself found his maw hanging open.
"What on Earth?" Shine said.
"That's what I want to know!" Ugh!" Tony wrung his shirt dry, although the rest of his face was sparkling pink. "I can't go to the office like this, I need to get changed! Shit, I'm gonna be late at this rate!"
Tony rushed to the shower to rid himself of the sparkly substance. Shine thought he'd save some time for him by

"Right," Curio said, holding a paw up, "That's enough for now."
Tony complied and pressed the record button to stop. There was a moment of silence in the room as Curio stretched her arms, squirming in her seat. Tony hummed to himself and looked down to Shine, who had stood up.
"Wait, they died?"
"Yup," Curio said, yawning, "Didn't get to see it happen of course."
"I'm so sorry."
"Feh, don't be. It happened a long time ago, so it wasn't anything I cried my eyes out over. Just goes to show how lucky I was when I got out." She let out a toothy grin. "At least I didn't turn into a Riolu sized popsicle like Stumpy did."
"Don't joke about that!" Shine shouted. His face trembled as tears began to form in his eye. "You lost half your family, that's terrible! I knew how hung up you were when you stopped hearing back from them in GeL, so why?"
"Well, I got over it. Besides, it's not your business

The Curious and the Shiny Chapter 14. Not The Last Goodbyes, For The Most Part

Being a human, you probably wouldn't know what it feels like to be trapped inside a ball. I don't really know for sure either. I'm sure Shine would be able to tell you since he probably knows more about the science behind that, but I don't know squat about it. That's where I ended up when I got knocked out anyway, inside a Pokéball.
Being unconscious and possibly concussed, my thoughts drifted in and out at random times, playing back random scenes in my head, like that of Azzy and Liam. I can't really describe the feeling of it, but it's like you're there and you're not at the same time. Like you're floating in jelly, or something, At least floating in jelly sounds tasty. In there, it feels like nothing.
Time passed, and it didn't pass at all. But when I next woke up, it had become night. A few hours must've passed since Liam mopped the floor with my scra

The Curious and the Shiny Chapter 13. The Reason We're Here, I Guess.

As they drove back to the island, I could see my family waiting with bated breath for me. My father was the first person I saw as he was aggressive towards the pair that saved me. When Azzy explained himself, he only nodded and thanked them before telling them to leave. I waved back at them as they set sail, and immediately got chewed out by Dad for almost drowning. I was to stay away from the shore for an indefinite period of time. He didn't mention the drawing again, we just swept it under the rug and left it at that.
Of course, being grounded in everything but name only didn't stop me as I had plans later on. You could never keep me in one place for too long after all. Thoughts of the duo stayed with me all day, and over a quiet dinner, I could think about nothing but escaping.
I had a definite chance that time. I was given the opportunity to eat something else othe

The Curious and the Shiny Chapter 12. That Sinking Feeling
Soon enough, I went off making my own map with the paper Mom gave me. I went through the island once more, gathering references for each point I had to make, but at first, I had trouble visualising it. It occurred to me when I started on the shore and looked at the trees in front of me. Making a record of every single patch of land there, one bit at a time, would've taken me forever. So I wandered around, which is sounding a bit redundant at this point because that's usually ALL I ever did, not knowing what to do for a while, until I saw another bird Pokémon whiz through the air past the trees. Then I had an idea. A dangerous thought.
I climbed up one of the trees, making sure not to drop my things on the way and sat on top of a branch. It was a pretty lucky spot since it was one of the highest trees up there, giving me a good look of half of the island. I got a crayon out a

The Curious and the Shiny Chapter 11. Bottoms Up, Bro.

The next time I encountered a human must've been a while after the last one. Well, two humans to be exact. I don't know how long the gap was, maybe only a season, but it felt like a year.
The day started when we tried to cool off from a recent fish hunt. We brought our findings to our parents, who thanked us and let us run off to wherever, so we decided to go to the lake again where the tire swing waited. It was another one of the island’s curiosities alongside the tarp, since you know, tires don’t grow on trees. To this day, I kind of question how Dad managed to bring all the stuff there, but young me didn’t care as it was for swinging on, not pondering on. I went on top and held onto the rope as Stumpy kicked the tire in the air, pushing me into the air and letting me swing for a bit.
Brings me back, that does. I remember it being nice, as sometimes, it felt like

The Curious and the Shiny Chapter 10. My First Weird Encounter

I didn’t bother asking any more questions for quite some time. For a while, everything fell into a routine as we hunted Magikarp as normal, we playfighted as normal, we told stories as normal, we slept as normal, repeat and repeat. Although I was satisfied with the answers I got and faced every day as it came, over time, a pit grew in my stomach and I didn’t realise what this hunger was until I saw a bird Pokémon perch itself atop the trees as I walked across the shore. It probably knew there was more out there, and that’s what I felt was missing, the sense of being connected to the rest of the world.
I felt a burning sensation in my paws and sprang towards the forest, climbing to the treetops in no time. That’s when I saw a Pokémon a few trees away, preening its feathers. I balanced myself on one of the highest tree branches and jumped from

The Curious and the Shiny Chapter 9: Oh Wait, We're Recording?

I owe a lot to Mom for leading me to this path. Of course, said path was formed with my blood, sweat and tears, but if it wasn’t for her, I probably wouldn’t have gone to GeL or had any interest in human life for that matter. She was my rock, a good friend of mine, and above all else, a great storyteller.
So in that way, why not start it off with a story she told me? She was the sort of Pokemon who could speak for hours on end and you wouldn’t get bored, but it took a while for her to hit her stride. Before, she would either keep you up all night with stories of hunts gone awry, tales of bloodshed and other sob stories, or lull you to sleep with those about compassion between strangers, unexpected comforts in the wild and all that other sweet crap. The ones I remember the most had the best of both.
That’s probably why I remember what she said, word for

The Commission (Working Title) Preview!

The room around the girl was cloaked in shadow. She could hear her own ragged breaths against the grunting presence in the room, and the only thing she could see was the presence’s red eyes. It leered above her, looking down at her as if she was only a bug beneath its foot. It inched closed to her to the point she could see its pupils, looking through her soul. Tears fell down the girl’s cheeks.

“Please, You don’t have to do this! I can move out of the house and never mention this to anyone! Just stop already!”

The presence only moved closer, to the point the girl could feel its hot breath licking at her face. She closed her eyes.

“No. Just go away. Just go. Just—“

Shk. A set of claws dug through her belly, tearing into her insides. She groaned one last time before falling to the floor, motionless.

It wasn't the first time Sal had to deal with a difficult customer. And it probably wouldn't be the last time either. He had stationed his canvas in one of the bustling streets of Lower Goldenrod, far away from the hub of Goldenrod where the trainer commerce thrived the most, but still a place where Sal got to see the many different faces of both their trainers and their Pokemon, even if the stale, petrol filled air wasn't to his liking. He considered this the perfect place to do caricatures, and although he was limited to markers in place of his preferred oil paints, he still kept his paws busy nonetheless.

Not every Smeargle had the chance to pull off such a feat. If anything, Sal often found himself out of place whenever there was a human on the opposite side of the street doing the same as he did. But he kept a grip on his markers anyway, offering his services to anyone that asked for it at a lower price than most. Of course, not being able to speak directly to humans had its problems, but their Pokemon kept him company, which was enough.

For the most part, the days went at a Slowpoke's pace. On a good day, he would get a dozen commissions in, and the smiles he would see on both the trainer's and their Pokemon's faces stuck with him until the next commission, but even at the end of his shift, the money box was still light whenever he collected from it. On this day in particular, one trainer strutted to his area, looking so caked in makeup, she and the Jynx that travelled with her were nearly identical.

"Hey," the trainer called out, diverting Sal's attention from his board to her, "Do me and her one of those drawing things."

Sal stood on his stall, putting him at an equal level to the foundation-heavy face, and held out his paw to her. A moment passed. She tilted her head before Sal realised what the problem was, and he pointed at the price board his trainer had constructed and laid out for him, visible to everyone that passed by him. Although his maths and literacy skills were negligable at best, he knew the prices were 500 Pokedollars a pop with payment up front. It was customary to pay any artist before they started working on anything, after all. However, when the trainer realised what Sal was asking for, she laughed.

"Um, but you're, like, a Pokemon. What do you need cash for anyways?"

Again, he pointed at the text that was clearly visible to her, indicating that he and his trainer would need emergency funds for rent. Despite this, she looked just as confused as before, while her Jynx swayed to and fro in her own world.

"Or just, uh, you know, battle other trainers and take their stuff. You Pokemon usually do that, right?"

Even if Sal could answer, he thought it was none of her business. He still prodded at the price list, adamant to get the next commission over and done with.

"Oh, so you think you're better than me, huh? I bet I could draw better than you anyway, stupid Smeargle. You know what?" she turned to her Jynx and patted their shoulder, "Ice this hoe."

The Jynx started walking towards him, hands raised, and Sal knew the warning signs immediately. Instinctively, he grasped for his tail and aimed it between the attacker's eyes. Concentrating his energy on the pigment in his tail, he shot a paint-bomb at them, blasting the two in the face with multicoloured patches of paint. They scrambled to the floor in a blind frenzy, giving him ample time to pack everything up and run away with his equipment in tow.

My main writing project at the moment is a Pokemon fanfiction called The Curious and the Shiny, which is available to read next to my ID! Here's the summary:

'Two old friends reunite after five years, but broken friendships aren't easily mended as the ghosts of their past continue to haunt them in the form of a mysterious organization called GeL. In their journey to repair their relationship, Shine and Curio will face their repressed memories, meet new allies and teach themselves and others to bridge the gap between Pokémon and mankind.'

Hello, dear readers! I thought I’d catch you up with what I’ve been doing, since it’s been a crazy month so far and I need to get this out there.

Life and Shizz!

So I mentioned a few times before I found a place to live for my final year at Uni, but instead of having an actual room to myself, I’ve been moved into a humid outhouse with poor insulation. It wasn’t even meant to be a room at first, there were a lot of things that were done at the last minute with the other housemates, which wasn’t helped by miscommunication with the landlord, which resulted in me being moved out the room I was supposed to be in. After only a couple of weeks of being there, I’ve decided to try and find another place to stay, hopefully before winter.

Thankfully, my housemates have been super helpful and I’ve made some great friends through them already, so that’s balanced everything out. The point still stands though that I have to find a new place. It would probably be a good idea to not go with my first choice next time and actually check the house I’m renting into.

Aside from that, uni hasn’t started yet, and this year’s shaping up to be weird already. Our department was moved to another campus, and not only that, it turns out half the lecturers on our course are quitting at around the same time, so how that goes down is anybody’s guess.

Announcements!

I’ve got a lot of great things lined up for the next few months or so, so if you’ve enjoyed my writing so far, you’re in for a treat!

I’ve nearly reached the end of my backlog for new chapters on The Curious and the Shiny, so the last two chapters before the break will be released this Tuesday and again on the following week. What I plan to do then is spend the next month outlining, as the next arc will be four times bigger than the previous arcs and will require a lot more careful planning, then try to shoot for doing a big chunk of that arc through NaNoWriMo.

I realise the prospect of writing 50,000 words on a passion project while completing coursework for Uni and preparing for my dissertation is insane, but since I did so well with Camp NaNoWriMo, I thought I’d go the extra mile, so we’ll see how that goes.


And now, the main event! Recently, I fished through some of my old projects and wanted to revitalise one of those concepts. I liked the idea so much, I decided to make a story out of it, and after five days of working on it consistently, I’ve written the first draft of a new, novella length fic! And so, I’d like to announce this new fic, a mystery/horror, under the working title The Commission.

In dire need to pay rent, Sal the Smeargle and his trainer don't even question it when a rich mistress offers to settle their debts in return for a commissioned painting at her manor. However, all is not what it seems when Sal begins to notice something is not quite right, and that there may be something alive lurking beneath them.  

It’s set in the same world as The Curious and the Shiny and shares some events with that fic, but it has an entirely new cast of characters so you don’t need to have read all of that to enjoy this fic. While it can be lighthearted, having some of the same sort of little character moments and light jabs at worldbuilding you’d come to expect from the other fic, it’s also darker than anything presented so far, particularly towards the end, so be forewarned if horror isn’t your thing. 

Since I’ve only finished the first draft, it will probably take another month before it’s actually finished since I need to edit for continuity purposes, present it to willing beta readers and edit it once more so everything is in top condition. When it does come out, it will be roughly 17.5k words long, so it will be quite a lengthy appetiser for the new chapters of the other fic to come.


The last announcement I’d like to make is about my first Pokemon fic, Deli’s Delivery Service, a fic written for the Christmas holidays. Since I’ve noticed some things about it that could be changed, I’ll be redrafting it to put it on rotation during the holiday season, and possibly make some revamped art for that. Possibly. If you're interested in checking out the story in its current condition, the link is at the bottom. Until then, thanks for your continued support! :D

Deli's Delivery Service
The last thing on Deli the Delibird’s mind was to break out of the comfort of his trainer’s bedroom, especially when it was approaching Yuletide.
It had everything he needed and more. A pellet dispenser to feed himself twice throughout the day, a water cooler he and his trainer shared, a bed of his own he was slightly too big for but could still sleep in, and the company of his trainer, Perry, at his side to play video games with, even if his lack of hands didn’t give him much control over the gamepad. Nevertheless, the two spent each day in that room, interrupted every so often by Perry’s mother who’d come in with his dinner. Deli wouldn’t have it any other way. Or so he thought.
---

The day started like any other. Deli huddled up next to Perry as they shared the same blanket, watching him play on the handheld gaming device Deli could never re

Hello dear readers. Lately, I've entertained the idea of rewriting chapter 1 of The Curious and the Shiny in polls and status updates, but I think it's about time I expanded on why that is, and ideally, I'd like some help deciding what to do.

While I'm amazed at the positive response this fanfic has gotten so far in and out of DeviantArt, and am happy to see the small following it's gotten, I've had trouble getting new readers to flock to this story as I've noticed there's a massive drop in stats between the two chapters. I think the reason why that's the case is that the first chapter starts on an uneven note. While it establishes the plot to come, it's a bit of a climb to understand everything, as it starts smack dab with Shine and Tony making their documentary on GeL without much build up beforehand. The 'Pokemon and human speech' element is another point of contention as I've heard reviewers were confused on how Shine learned to talk and what extent Pokemon could talk in this universe I've created. While they do get more answers over time, as it's a long fic that revolves around Pokemon gradually learning to speak more of it, I realise at the beginning, I don't go into it with a lot of explanation.

That, and I don't think the writing style helps that much, at least at the beginning. I posted a snippet of the opening on a forum thread where commentators noted the redundancies and other weak points in the prose, which, combined with the previous statement about plot, adds to a weak first impression of my story.

I'm of the mindset that this fic gets better as the story goes on, as chapters tend to build off one another and add new dynamics to the story, particularly with Curio's introduction in Chapter 3, that make for some twists and turns. Again, I'm very pleased with the response this fic has gotten so far, but in order for it to grow and gain more readers, I feel like I need to change the first chapter, particularly the opening, to add a better hook earlier on and make it more up to par with my current writing so that it doesn't scare off new readers. This wouldn't be a drastic change as plot points and characters will remain the same, just in terms of structure, pacing and exposition.

What do you guys think? Did you notice any problems in the first chapter you think need changing, or are you happy just the way it is? Either way, thank you for supporting this project and I hope you're enjoying the current chapters.

So, I just got 49 spam reviews of my fic on FFN, and I had to delete them all manually. :/
Well, I've redrafted the horror fic in full and have written an additional 3k words for the third act, since the ending originally felt a little sudden. Now I got someone to beta read the fic+the extended scene, the story is 90% done now. I will make some cover art to go along with it within the week.
I ended up making a flowchart/Entity Relationship Diagram for the major characters involved in GeL, just so I know who gets along with who. Outlining is a bitch sometimes.

A shitpost that doubles as an excellent love song:
I went through my newly written fic with a beta-reader, and while their impression overall was positive, I still have to make tweaks to the story as well as add additional scenes before it's fully ready to come out.

The final title of this fic will be Black Paint.
Started rewatching Ouran High School Host Club, and god, that brings me back to my weeb days. Surprisingly, it holds up really well.
Whew, wrote about 8k words today (a new record for me!), and with that, my WIP is finished! I’ll still have to edit everything, but you can expect the entire story to come out in the next month or so!
Wrote 4k words for my WIP fanfiction project today! It's shaping up nicely so far!
I've been working on a new fic which will be focused around the drama/horror genres. Here's the summary!

Sal the Smeargle is struggling to make ends meet, drawing caricatures in the street to help towards his failing trainer’s rent, so when a rich mistress chances upon them and offers to pay them handsomely for a commission, they are more than happy to take it on. But all is not what it seems when Sal notices something alive may be lurking underneath their manor.
