    Pokémon Starfall [Oneshot]

    Summary: “It’s a big one, Kabiyo. The biggest in centuries. Our chance, if we’re bold enough to take it.” Sometimes, a god dies. . . . Starfall Farmer Tenlo squinted down the dirt road. The sun was setting flamewards, but looking waterwise he saw a flash of orange, growing brighter. The...

    Pokémon What Happened to the ERP?
    Threadmarks: How did this blight of an idea take hold—and how does it continue to affect us today?

    What Happened to the ERP? Few movements have ever achieved the ERP's, or Egg Redistribution Project's (not to be confused with the Egg Redistribution Party, a pejorative term for yellow politicians and political parties). None have ever garnered so much support despite its beyond radical...

    Pokémon Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Between Twilight and Daybreak
    Threadmarks: Chapter 1

    Episode 1: The Edge of Dawn I woke from my dreamless sleep to a roaring chorus of rain, pounding rhythmically all around me as I shivered by myself. I didn’t need to open my eyes to know something was amiss. Cold, damp, drafty, basically the exact opposite of how I expect my bedroom to be in...

    Pokémon Better Left Unown

    Better Left Unown Legend has it that a wise man once said Mystery is inherent to myth. No one knew this man, who he was, what he did, or even if he was really a man to begin with. Recent scholarship suggests that "he" was in fact a woman who said a man said it so that people would listen to...

    Pokémon Lost to Retellings [Oneshot]

    Hi all! This was my entry into the Thousand Road's 2020 writing contest. I'm excited to finally share it! This fic is loosely tied to my main fic, Places We Call Home, but can be enjoyed on its own. It's had some tweaks from the original entry, but nothing major. With that said... Content...

    Pokémon The Tessellation Solution (Oneshot)

    Summary: A veteran explorer visits an uncanny town on the edge of a Labyrinth. Disclaimer: My knowledge of PMD is drawn from the two games I played a long time ago and osmosis. Creative liberties have been taken. The Tessellation Solution The road to Thickenwood was not well worn, and Iwa...

    Pokémon SWAP! [One-shot / Everyone]

    Hello, everyone! Today, I’ve decided to bring forth my submission from one of Bulbaforums contests, with the main theme being “Missing Letters” and a wordcount limit of 10k words (sounds familiar, huh?). This is a simple PMD AU story about two Ninetales with opposite personalities who are both...

    Pokémon Rigged from the Start

    a/n: So I wrote this for a PMD prompt back in January, but I debated for a long time if I wanted to publish it. It's off-the-cuff, tangential, unbetaed, partly based on an old concept which makes it muddled, and my frame of mind wasn't exactly sunshine and rainbows at the time of writing. But I...

    Pokémon Pletora's Story
    Threadmarks: Author's Notes & Part One

    Hello again, all! I have another story to post. So back in 2018, I had gotten inspired by several PMD (more or less, we know the deal with that term) works, either through reading them or just hearing about them and the creative stories they tell, and I wanted to try my own hand at one. The...
