That's weird. :P If I ever publish a book, I'm going to bold it. xD

What's to think about? I'm telling you the correction. xD

Not a fetish. You just use them instead of semicolons/periods. o:

Hey, I'm offering my view. I wouldn't call a dog a fox just because it looks like one.

I think you're taking these corrections too personally. o: I'm just pointing them out. You don't need to justify yourself; everyone makes mistakes. xD

Which is why I said that it's when a character addresses another. Should I just stop these corrections and stick to the literal typos?

It was a take off 'Amelia' and I like that name. xD Spur of the moment name. I'm finding it harder to think of good names and I wonder how I ever came up with the main ones. XD They split up in case Deoxys came to attack. You know, if one group was captured another would still be alright. That and they thought it would be faster to travel as two groups rather than a big one.

Hopefully the rest of the story will be fairly interesting so I can keep you occupied. xD Though I've taken a little break (yet again) to catch up with Uni stuff. Once June rolls around I should be back into writing mode again. I have the words in mind, but not the patience, ehe. ^^;
Yeah, I just thought it was funny since I realised similarities. :P Doesn't bother me either. Well, not that I like him as such, because I know he's a sicko, but more that I find him interesting. Yeah, most of my characters have spur of the moment names. Only ones I plan or the recurring ones have preconceived ones. Ah, I see.

It's fine. I haven't posted a chapter in, like, months. Stuff to do, dwindling motivation, other stories, etc.
