Hi there everyone!

I'd seen the main website around a few times in the past, but I didn't know about the forums until recently, after running across the Tumblr. Anyway, I'm a college student that enjoys writing fanfiction on the side when I have time. I've written a few things for small fandoms and I've got an ongoing Zelda fic, but within Pokemon tend to write and enjoy PMD related stories the most. I look forward to reading more fic on the forums. Have a lovely day all!

Hey everyone! I just joined here and at the discord server. First time in a while I have been in a forum and I will admit now I am fairly awkward socially. I’m old and glad that there are other people probably around my age here as I was a little nervous about that. I studied music business and chemical engineering at school and worked for a while but now am home as a mom with 3 kiddos (one of whom is obsessed with pikachu).

I started writing more than 20 years ago and stopped because of a crappy experience with a creative writing class. But being home now I needed some me time and am so much more comfortable with who I am I decided to try writing again. I just finished my first Pokémon fanfic after falling in love with the detective pikachu movie. I have dabbled in all the main Pokémon games and the detective pikachu game as well but never watched much of the anime. My kids, however, now have a great love of some Pokémon and we started some of the anime and manga.

As for other interests: lots of anime, some video games (currently yoshi and astral chain) and reading. And being a mom. Because I feel like that is all I am. My fic is up on AO3 and maybe here, Heart of Gold. It just finished up and I am working on the sequel.

Welcome to you both!

@windskull I'm tickled you've visited the main site before! I tend to assume that most people here knew of the forums first. There are quite a few fans of PMD fic here, so I hope you find something you enjoy reading! Namohysip's Hands of Creation is one to check out if you like epic adventure stories, and Casting Off by Virgil134 is a complete three-parter if you're looking for a quicker read.

@Drgnrdr82 Great to see you here! Chemical engineering is a super cool area of study, and it's always nice to see other scientists around. It's awesome that Pokémon is something you can enjoy together with your kids! Congrats on finishing a big chaptered fic like Heart of Gold, too. That's a serious achievement!

Hello everyone! I'm roule, and I've been writing pokemon fic since 2016ish. I took a year-long break to focus on my foundation classes, and with some free time now, I've gotten back into fic writing. Nice to meet you all!

Hi. I'm not good at intros, so let's just throw this out there.

I am Misfit Angel. I'm a misfit certainly, but the verdict is still out on whether I'm an angel. I write. I make pixel art. I work on programming projects. I'm not particularly great at any of them, but they keep my time occupied and me out of trouble, and that's all I really care for.

I've always been intrigued by smaller and more tight-knit communities like this. Something about fanfiction communities being tied directly to their larger fandom, yet still distinctly and culturally separate, always bugged me but it's all I could work with until I found this place. Hopefully I (mis)fit in, I like cozy places.

Hey, welcome! I know you a little bit, of course, though I wasn't aware that you did any programming. That's cool, and I'm always surprised by how many fanfic people also dabble in code. It's great to have you, and I hope you enjoy your stay!

Whoah, Squirtles! What's up? Hope you enjoy your stay. Even if you don't want to read much, hopefully you can enjoy some world/character discussion. You're always welcome to try some of the Worldbuilding June prompts if you want to flesh out a world you've been thinking about a bit.
