01/31/24: Groundhog Dave

I've put up another new Morphic AU extra that's been a long time coming, Groundhog Dave, featuring Dave in a time loop on the day of chapter 13 of the fic. Please mind the content warnings on this one, since it's heavier than usual; it includes strong and demeaning language, gun violence, character death, suicide and suicidal ideation, and existential horror. It also spoils the ending of Morphic, and will probably not make too much sense without having read the main fic.

01/01/24: Happy 2024!

Another year comes to an end! I hope, despite everything, you've had a decent 2023 and your 2024 will be better.

This year I would like to extend some thanks to...

  • ...all of my lovely friends, who make me happy by existing, especially those I got to hang out with, have voice or video chats or in-depth conversations, or roleplay with this year including Jackie, Chibi, elyvorg, Psychic and Teagan, Negrek, seatherny, Murkrow and opaltiger
  • ...Altissimo, for working on an amazing and necessary Pokémon data resource and sending me corrections
  • ...Darren of Johto Times, for reconnecting, starting a fascinating newsletter on the early days of Pokémon and its fandom, and even giving me an interview as part of it
  • ...Ayano of Blue Moon Falls, for a fansite with great original content that keeps impressing me
  • ...Ottercopter, for encouraging me to enter the Unsounded fanworks contest
  • ...all of the staff of the Heartache RPG, which I look greatly forward to continuing to enjoy this year
  • ...Game Freak, for the Scarlet and Violet DLC unexpectedly having the most interesting character-based storytelling in any Pokémon game
  • husband Shadey, the love of my life
  • ...Birta, best cat
  • parents, who I feel very grateful for
  • ...the Thousand Roads community, my primary internet home
  • generous patrons
  • ...everyone for your patience with my still-not-quite-finished writeup on R/S/E roulette

Happy new year! I will see you next update... hopefully the roulette.

12/18/23: New and Shiny

The Scarlet and Violet Subtle Shinies page has been updated with more difficult-to-identify shinies in the new Blueberry Pokédex (plus Finneon/Lumineon, brought to you by me genuinely nearly overlooking the shiny one I caught yesterday when I thought it was just the sunset lighting). I also decided to add some headings to make it easier to find just the ones added in a certain DLC.

Some of yesterday's updates also didn't actually get pushed to the live site; they're there now, whoops. The capture mechanics page also now covers the Catching Charm (as well as there being a box for it in the calculator), and I've been fixing some more errors in the Gen II Locations.
