Never not editing
"It feels like I'm not a real trainer until I do this."
Chris Nakano has worked hard to become a trainer his dad would have been proud of. But his plans for the Indigo League slip sideways when he discovers a strange girl lying in the snow. A bittersweet, meandering coming of age story.
Somewhat violent battles, off-screen death, and brief alcohol use
Like my other stories, this one is set in a somewhat grittier version of the pokemon world where all trainers start traveling at age eighteen instead of ten.
Coming of age, adventure,

On hiatus while I work on Divides and maybe a one-shot.
I started this story as a writing challenge. I wanted to know if I could make a good narrative from the story my friends and I made up as little kids. I think of it as a sort of fairy tale. I've left in as much as I can of the original, which means probably not all of it will work all of the time. I'm very open to constructive criticism though and I do go back and edit previous chapters as needed. I always appreciate comments of any kind!
I'll post chapters once a week until I'm up-to-date here...and then I'll post at the same slow, unpredictable rate I write!
Hope you enjoy!
