I can undertand where you're coming from with this. Having Joe in the group defeats the purpose of him having faith in Charlie and trusting her friends to take good care of her while he's not around, correct? Novo The Hedgehog (talk) 01:39, January 20, 2018 (UTC) Novo The Hedgehog
Hey, if you don't mind me asking: For my fanfiction, should I have it where Mallow is Emerald's mom, Lillie, or someone else? Because I'm trying to find a suitable character for Emerald's green eye inheritance. So what are your thoughts? Novo The Hedgehog (talk) 23:37, January 21, 2018 (UTC)Novo The Hedgehog

Millicas and Lazuli
Yes, they're stories are connected. First, I'll finish Millicas's story, and Lazuli appears once in a while, and then, I'll make Lazuli's story, and place her within Millicas's by connecting the two stories together.

Maybe, depends on the season and episode.
Just Dropping By
Well, this is pretty awkward for me, but I'll power through anyway. This is Wyvern 0m3g4 by the way, and I was wondering if you remember Pokémon Ages or not. I bring this up because it finally dawned on me that it's been over a year since we planned on writing it together, and yet I went and disappeared for roughly that amount of time, leaving the story to gather dust. I feel incredibly stupid and ashamed for letting that happen, even if it was mostly beyond my control and even if I believed I had a good reason for postponing it for so long. If I recall, I stated I didn't want to get started just yet, at least until my own story had reached a point where Ages' plot would intersect with mine. Well, I also just realized there may be a problem with that, and it's one that's tough to solve.
Long story short, I'm involving two people I'm close with as main characters in the story, but they're not always available when it comes time for me to ask how they want to be portrayed. That's been massively cutting into time I could be spending writing Dreams and Adventures instead. So as you can see, I had put off writing Ages with you due to some frustrating technical difficulties on my part.
However, I've given it a lot of careful thought today when Ages came back to mind, and I figured it's about time I stepped up to plate and took responsibility for the delay. Considering it may take another year or more for me to be anywhere near where I want to be in Dreams and Adventures before I get around to Ages, I've come to the decision that I should finish my obligations to you first and write the story we were planning on a year ago. That is however, if you're still willing to write it, or if you even want to anymore. I understand a lot can happen in a year, and interests can come and go over time, so I understand if you're no longer interested; I won't be disappointed or anything. Although, if you do still want to continue writing Ages with me, I'll be more than willing to finally make this story come to life with you. It's your call, and I'm perfectly OK with either choice you make. In the end, I just want closure regarding Pokémon Ages, and to know that it won't be left up in the air as it has been since the page for it was made.
Thank you for your time.
Thank you so much for your response. :) And likewise, thank you for giving me the fair head's up in regards to your friend. I suppose it wouldn't be too much of a bother for me, as at the moment I've been going with the flow, so to speak, when it comes to Ages; like, I haven't set up any high expectations at the moment and am instead going about this with the mindset of having fun as my first priority. So someone else joining in either at the start or later on doesn't sound like it would cause things to get too out of control, though I guess it would take some getting used to for me. ...Or maybe I'm just too out of the loop when it comes to collaborations with other users, given I haven't done something like this in years and I feel a little rusty at it? That or maybe I'm a little nervous after you brought up how this might negatively affect me somehow. As a cautious individual, I can't help but take that into account.
Anyway, that's enough rambling from me. Again, thanks! I'm glad my boneheaded irresponsibility hasn't been too much of a deterrent from what I can gather. And now that I know you're game for this too, I'm beginning to look forward to having some fun writing the story and seeing what happens along the way. :) Should be fun.
Anyway, with all that said, I guess we can move on to the planning and writing stage of production. Now that I know Dreams and Adventures will be delayed for a while on account of hard-to-manage muses, I'm willing to be more flexible with when Michael appears in the story. Like, this doesn't necessarily need to be set in Kanto anymore if you don't want it to be. Sky's the limit at this point, so if you want to take advantage of it, just let me know.
^_^ Thank you very much for that response you gave. When you put it that way, I doubt I'd become upset over someone else wanting to join in. I mean, it does help that you gave me fair warning in advance, so the shock of it all has come and gone already. And thanks again for your kind words in regards to me calling myself boneheaded. I suppose I can be a bit hard on myself, especially if I feel I've messed up in a big way. I prefer to be more responsible and reliable than this, instead of putting things off for so long because of other priorities. I mean, it's one thing when real life gets in the way; there's no helping that. But I should've put more effort into Pokémon Ages when I had the free time, instead of focusing more on my personal works. And so for that, I felt bad (especially considering I was aware that I hadn't done anything with Ages for the entire year that had passed since. >.<)
Anyway, as for what I meant by planning and writing, I guess that was my sloppy attempt to say "getting started on Pokémon Ages." Like, planning out what the plot is going to be like, how our characters meet and interact, how the story will progress and so on. And writing, well, I guess that's self-explanatory? Since all I had in mind when I said that was "type up the story somewhere." Hope this clears things up, and I apologize for the confusion.
Aww, you're awfully sweet and kind. ^_^ While it's not something I'm proud of, (concerning myself that is,) it is nice all the same to see we tend to run into the same problem. It's like finding a kindred spirit so to speak, you know?
As for the planning thing I brought up, well, if you're more comfortable not planning anything, then I'm willing to go along with it. I have plenty of experience working with other people on other wikis who tend to prefer not planning anything, and instead write by the seat of their pants; and I've also written stories with people who do a little of both. I brought up planning out the plot beforehand simply because I'm too used to doing that when I write alone. I personally like knowing what I'm going to do before I do it, but I'm not so rigid that I can't adapt to someone else's preferred writing style. So again, if you want to go with the flow, or even find a compromise between our differing styles, I won't mind going along with it.
And as for waffling on your OC, that's fine. You gotta be comfortable and content with the choices you make, right? Otherwise, why continue writing something you can't enjoy? Like when it comes to being unable to finish certain stories or collaborations, I can also relate with you when it comes to this too. I've been doing a bit of waffling too, but in regards to my character's age and at what point during my story when he should appear. I was considering having him show up after his journey in Sinnoh instead, as I had already chosen he'd be 16 by then, and it'd be closer to Spring's age of 15; but if you're thinking of changing Spring to someone else, then I'll wait and see what you do first, and that way I can determine what to do with Michael too. That is, if that sounds good to you; otherwise I don't mind hearing out any ideas you may have instead.
Hm, I've never really written with a rating in mind before, so I'm not quite sure how to respond. I suppose the best way to respond to this is by saying I've always had this tendency to write stories in a similar manner to those of shounen manga and anime (Dragon Ball, Naruto, One Piece and so on.) As a result, I'm used to dealing with all kinds of manner of violence, foul language, sexual themes and darker subjects (death, slavery, racism/bigotry and so forth.) Granted, the degree in how dark I allow things to get usually depends on what I'm basing my story on. Considering this is Pokémon, I'm uncertain where to draw the line at the moment. On one hand, I'm nervous about taking things too far with violence, sexuality and the like, but on the other hand, I've had plans for moments in Dreams and Adventures where things could get pretty grim and/or scary, such as Michael being possessed by Ghost Pokémon in Pokémon Tower, or when he and his brothers face Mewtwo in Cerulean Cave and Mewtwo's violent behavior and psychic powers reveal mental image sin their heads of the Kanto region going up in flames if Mewtwo isn't put under control.
So I'm in an odd spot where I don't mind putting more serious and mature material into a Pokémon story, and yet I'd also be a bit uncomfortable if it went too far off the deep end and got incredibly dark. My apologies in advance if I'm coming off as wishy-washy. v_v
...Oh, right, and to answer your question, I guess I'd be somewhere in the PG camp? I honestly have no clue and am making guesses based upon what's been said already. If that isn't PG, then I'm not sure what kind of rating my work usually falls under. :/
Also, no need to worry about changing Spring's age is you don't want to. As I said in an earlier post, now that I'm no longer obligated to write my character based on how far along he is in my story currently (that being chapter 1... urgh,) I have more freedom in how I can represent him. We don't have to do a Kanto arc if you'd prefer something else, just to name an example. Likewise, if you'd like, Michael could be starting off his journey in Kanto, be in the midst of an adventure in Johto or Hoenn, or we could even skip ahead to the present day, where he's in Alola. I'm perfectly happy with whatever I end up doing with Mike, so my biggest concern at the moment is what you'd want to see most.
^_^ Thanks for the reassurance, and sure, if you're comfortable with PG, then why not? As for joining you guys on chat, I wouldn't mind, albeit I'm a bit on the shy side since I don't know many people here too well. >.> Heh, to be honest, if you hadn't approached me a year ago about Pokémon Ages, I may not have begun talking with you because of the shyness and all. But if it's more convenient, then I'll summon up my courage and drop by. :)
Hey there. Sorry to ask this, but I just finished these two character stories, and I would really appreciate someone giving their opinions/rating the characters, stories, yada, yada... I really put so much effort into these two, and I wanted someone to see their stories. If it's not too much trouble, that is. Millicas - Lazuli HygorBohmHubner (talk) 02:41, April 4, 2018 (UTC)
LunarExplosion, thanks for the comment on the characters. I really appreciate it xD
About Me Not Showing Up
So, I'm not sure if Negima has informed you or not yet, but I wanted to be sure to let you know I apologize if I haven't been on chat much this week. Thing is, you guys tend to show up around the time I begin to fall asleep; so if I want to come by and talk with you guys, that means I'd need to push myself a bit to stay awake longer. I do intent to try again whenever the opportunity shows itself, but for now I'm having trouble keeping myself up long enough to discuss stuff. Sorry.
Figure I should place this here, considering the heading sums up what I'm about to say. Anyway, I feel I should apologize again, but this time for not doing any editing to Pokémon Ages in about a week or so. Thing is, I know you said editing with Negima can get crazy, but I guess I never expected what's recently happened in the story. I've been trying to let myself relax and recharge before mentally preparing for a proper response from Michael, since this is more of a challenge than I was expecting. Heh, guess I should have been more prepared, huh? Whoops...
Also, I should point out that I've been trying to fight off an almost constant depression for the past few months or more, so that's made it even harder to edit Ages lately. The combination of surprise at what's going on in-story and the depression has become an effective combo in keeping me from writing lately. Sounds like a lame excuse now that I'm typing it down, but it is what it is I guess. Hope this clears up why you haven't heard from me in quite a while. I haven't forgotten about Ages like last time; rather, life's been a huge deterrent for me at the moment. I'm still thinking of Ages all the time though, and I do still plan on getting back into the swing of things at some point.

Odd numbers ticking people off is regular. Symmetry is a common obsession anyways. As for the advice, I say go ahead. Better not let all the ideas evaporate. Sentinel 72 (talk) 07:10, May 13, 2018 (UTC)
Likewise, all is forgiven for not responding right away. I'm usually more patient than most people, and I can sympathize with being forgetful. Heck, I even forgot I wrote to you weeks ago. Same goes for joking around. I'm in a good enough mood this morning, so I don't mind laughing about this sort of stuff. No hurt feelings here.
Anyway, thank you for jogging my memory today. Reminds me that I should get back to editing, now that I've had more than enough time to rest and prepare for the rest of Ages.
Oh, and head's up: I finally made my edit today.
I was worried about that after I had seen what happened with Spring and Hamish. Considering Michael is a 7 year old kid who's new to being out on his own and traveling, and of course came from Lavender Town as mentioned, I couldn't find a better way for him to react to what was going on around him. Anything else would have felt too out of character, too unusual of a reaction, or just forced. I don't like that he feels the need to separate himself from the others at the moment, as I was enjoying the team dynamic so far, but I felt this was a necessary evil on my end.
Anyway, as you said, maybe something will happen that'll get the three to come together again. I'm currently trying to think of anything I can do that might fix the problem at hand, should things get to a point where that would be necessary.
