I now have a Twitter!

2012-02-21 19:21:06
Rather than posting an occasional Journal post here or on DA, I've decided to get a Twitter! This way I can give short updates on the statuses of my stories so you all know I'm working on them and not dead. ^^ RavenNevermore4 is my screen name or whatever if you wanna look me up!

Crystal Dawn now has a Beta!

2011-11-14 22:50:42
Okay, so I wanted my story to have a better quality to it, so I decided to find a beta! ^^ They're going to read my story before I release it for all to read, and then tell me what they think and what needs to be changed. In the meantime, I'll continue to work on Crystal, and once all the necessary changes are made, I'll take the password off the chapter so everyone else can read! ^^ Let's see how this works out!

Oh, and I'll also be working on a revamped first chapter and some small changes to 10. ^^ I'll still have both versions of the first chapter up, but the new version will be put before the old one. Oh, and also the new version will only have the first five boys as results for convenience's sake.

Hope everything works out okay! =]

Feeling nostalgic...

2011-11-06 15:36:12
So I've been listening to some old playlists on Grooveshark since I heard Break Your Heart by Tao Cruz on the radio yesterday. This is the song that I've always felt matches the N in my story best, especially the big bad wolf part. ^^

Anyway it feels good to go back and reminisce about old times. Back when Quizilla was the home of my stories and Crystal's boys were still developing...

They've changed a lot since I first started writing them. Hey look, it's been nine months exactly since the first Chapter of Crystal came out! I would have loved to get a chapter out today, but I don't think that's happening. Definitely for the 1-year anniversary, though.Which reminds me! Last month was not only my birthday, but also that of 'Dragons, why is it always Dragons?', the longest story I have ever written! All of it is on my Quizilla, (http://quizilla.teennick.com/stories/17504263/dragons-why-is-it-always-dragons-1) <-- link the the first chapter. So far this story has been rated 41 times and viewed more than 2,000 times! =O The first chapter, at least. The last chapter of the first series has only been viewed half as many times. XD

Anyway, the boys are all so different from how I originally saw them! Blue isn't the arrogant jerk I first made him out to be, and Red isn't nearly as silent or arrogant as he used to be. Wally's less of a whiny bitch, and Brendan is crazier and more impulsive. Silver is a little less moody and more open to violence, and Gold's matured a LOT(Why does that always happen to my favourite crazy characters? TT^TT). As for Riley and N I still don't have a totally clear picture on. ^^;

Can you believe that Gold, Riley and N were originally never supposed to be in Crystal Dawn? =O I had selected Brendan, Silver, Wally, Red and Blue, and I had a few others written down just in case, but I didn't intend to actually use them. Then Gold wormed his way into the story, and when I decided to move the story to Unova, N had to come with it. Riley made the cut right after that, and I gotta tell you, if even ONE of them weren't in this story, then it wouldn't feel right. you wouldn't get the great clash of personalities or complicated back stories that I love about my story. I just can't imagine how things would've played out had I decided to keep the story in Kanto with just the original five boys. I think I would've gotten bored and given up on Crystal Dawn. Plus Crystal wouldn't have HALF the back story she has now. Ooh, you guys are gonna love it! XD

Happy Halloween!

2011-10-31 12:38:59
So what are you guys going as? I'm gonna be a Pikachu! =D It's a poorly made home-made costume, but it's enough to be recognizable as a Pikachu (I hope) My friends are coming over so from 2:00 on my clock (It's 11:30 now for reference) I won't be on at all! Damn I haven't seen my friends in MONTHS! This is gonna be great! =D

As you can see, I've already put up this week's Platinum Hiro chapter! I only have four completed chapters left until I run out, one of which is a short Bonus Chapter. Sorry! But good news! Crystal [12] is well on its way to being complete! =O Just 16 Answers left to write, then all I have to do is copy-paste into the Quiz editor here one You-Fic, and select which answer takes you to which boy's result! ^^ Sounds simple, huh?

NO.

It's a very confusing process made a little less confusing with the use of a cheat-sheet to keep track of which results I've already selected in that question.

Anyway I'm hoping to have Chp. 12 out sometime this week. ^^

News! (Not sure if it's big or not)

2011-10-15 05:42:52
So there's good new for those of you with the 3DS! Zelda: Four Swords: Anniversary Edition or whatever can be downloaded for FREE. I got it since, well, it was a Zelda game and it was FREE. I've been playing it for about five minutes and I have to say it's very enjoyable. Especially if you like the old SNES games. But the bottom screen doesn't go wasted - look, it's a map! =D I've yet to find the other uses for it, though. But anyway I like it! =D This and Okami will tide me over until Pokemon Rumble Blast comes out the 24th! ^^ Waah I can't wait!

Chapter 2 of Platinum Hiro will be out this Monday! :) All I have to do is some editing, then it'll be ready! ^^

See you then!

Okami FROZE

2011-10-11 17:24:10
Craaaaaaap!!!!! DX It wasn't too horrible, though; I had saved at the beginning of the area, so I only lost getting a few items, a new technique, and the beginning of a fight against a dog I was dreading anyway. Just another excuse to procrastinate! =D

Anyway how do you guys like my new story so far? ^^ Sorry about the strong language, but Hiro just feels like the kind of guy who swears a lot. The next chapter should be out next week.

And speaking of Pokemon, I'm going as a Pikachu for Halloween! =D I already have the tail, I just need some gloves, a yellow shirt, and the ears. ^^

That's all for now!

Happy B-day to me!

2011-10-07 22:59:53
So I didn't get sick! =D Yeah, I just felt really crappy for a few days there. But it went away pretty quickly. Anyway my birthday is this Sunday! ^^ I am now old enough to get my learner's permit! Cool, right?

Anyway I'm not working on Crystal right now. I'm working on a new story! What is it, you ask? No? Well I'm gonna tell you anyway.

Heard of those Nuzlocke challenges? The ones where if your Pokemon faints, it DIES? Yeah, those. Well I'm doing one too! (On super easy mode by the by) And since most people write stories or comics about their Nuzlocke challenges, I decided to do that too. So I'll be working on the telling of my Platinum Nuzlocke challenge, to be named Platinum Hiro. (I just love that name! XD) I will be playing as Lucas (A first for me!) and the story will somehow tie into Crystal's story. (Though I'm not exactly sure yet just how it'll fit in...)

The rules of my challenge will be posted soon, and then the first chapter will be out this Monday, after my fantabulous B-day! ^^

'Till then!

I think I'm coming down with something

2011-09-27 03:43:14
Yes, I am telling you all this to make you feel bad and not hate me as much. ^^ But seriously, though. I feel like I'm coming down with something. But I really hope I'm hope I'm not sick. After all, my birthday is only twelve days away, and I usually take about a week or so to get over something.

What does this mean for you, my fan? (Since I'm almost positive that most of my fans - if I ever had any at all - have gotten fed up with me. ^^;;) Well, it means that I might not feel up to writing at all. But lucky for you, lately I've been focusing on the results for Chapter 12. Red, Blue, N and Riley are done, Silver and Gold are being worked on, but I haven't started on Brendan or Wally yet.

So... Let's see how this week turns out. Oh! Now I have a Deviant Art profile! =D No drawings on it yet... But you can check it out anyway! Same Username, just on Deviant Art! ^^

Here's a link if you get lost are are just totally lazy; http://ravennthenevermores.deviantart.com/

Raven out,

Sorry!

2011-09-14 20:36:43
Okay, thoughts now, apologies later.

So I've been playing Pokemon White trying to evolve my Deino into a Zweilous to complete my Unova Dex. And I was fighting a double battle using Pokabu and Xen, my Emboar and Zekrom(Yes Crystal's Pokabu is based off of my Emboar), and Pokabu fainted. I sent out Tsunbear, my Beartic, and something amazing happened; I realized that they make excellent friends. I mean, a Dragon- and an Ice-Type? Plus they just feel like they'd be a great team. Just goes to show that the best pieces of a character's personalities came out at the strangest times. Like I was playing chess with post-it notes with my Pokemon's names on the bottom(Don't ask), and I shuffled them randomly before sticking them to the bottoms of the pieces. Then when I flipped them over after giving up on the game, I found my Carracosta and my Beartic under the white king and queen respectively(Which matches their genders). I probably would have come to the conclusion that they're good together anyway, but not until much later. I just love little things like that.

Now for the apologies. I am so so sooo sorry! DX But the only thing I really feel like writing is the story part of chapter 14, an even then it's on and off. So I'm not committing to getting any chapters out until after October at least. I may still post a chapter or two if I feel like it in the meantime, but I'd rather build up a stock of completed chapters in case of another drought.

Again, I'm really sorry about the inconvenience, but I will post a short story about N sometime this week.

Raven,

Pokemon Johto theme in Spanish = Hilariously awesome! XD

2011-09-02 13:17:44
Yeah, I was looking up the proper spelling for Miltank, and the Johto theme popped into my head. So I decided to listen to it on Grooveshark, and I found a Spanish version of it! Surprisingly, I love it just a little but more than the English version! XD

Now, about updates!

I'm simultaneously working on the Gym scene in Striaton and the last scene of Chapter 13. I'm going to take a look at chapter 12 sometime this weekend, so I may get it out sometime next week. But I wouldn't get your hopes up. Right now I'm really inspired by the Striaton scenes, so I'll probably working on those for a while. I've also been distracted by Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility a lot lately, so that doesn't help either. Sorry for all the delays! But all you N fans, the next chapter will have a little something for you! ;)
