I'll give it a shot. I haven't been reading too much lately, but I stop by every now and then, and this is a really good idea.

OMG Skottie! And Redlark! It's been a while since I've seen you guys around ^^. Welcome back!

And I think I'd like to join this. I think it'll be some time before I can start reviewing, since I just started my new job today and I have a weird schedule. However, once things settle down a bit, you can rest assured that I'll br hanging around ^^.

Man, this is crazy. Ther' so many senior members in one spot

Though, I never really considered myself that senior of a member, I guess I am now.

The Ties that Bind - By Saffire Persian - I always considered this one of the most well written shorts on the site. I liked it then, I like it now. It's also one of those one of a kind 2nd person written fics.

Ditto.

But I suppose this is a good place for vet writers to meet other vet writers who they haven't met. I mean, I think someone like Bay wasn't around during Skottie's time (neither was I, come to think of it :P), so they'll get to meet and read each others' works. And recommend other pieces.

Also, is there a limit to the number of recommendations you can make at a time? I mean, obviously I won't be recommending ten stories at once...but I'm just wondering.

Got the PM... so let's recommend. (The poorest paraphrase of the contest leader in R/S ever.)

@Redlark: Amen to that. That piece is... the quality that any other piece would eventually become by good writers if editing and revising were replied and the piece was polished. I second that. (Which I think I interpret as a way for, eventually, the nominated piece to be colored red, which would be like a consensus.)

A recommendation or two:

Trial of Juno I and II. [Click]

It is the bible for a pokémon action fic. Each chapter being short and concise makes it excellent for a forum setting, and its remastered version polishes an already extraordinary piece.

Don't Cry Misty [Click]

It too is an excellent piece, a very emotional work starting with the first line. The first person point-of-view is well presented and works excellently.



(And Jack: a sidenote, but I was looking through the thread for some good things to recommend, and you have me writing Morphic - should be Dragonfree.)

Heh, I'm with RM- Getting a PM to be asked to help was very cool. ^^;

I've stuck to URPG stories mostly, in the past, but once WAR gets a bit quieter and I have time to get to reading some of the great fanfics here, I'd be glad to help with this.

Hm, so fics by people that are part of this group can be recommended as long as you do not recommend your own :)?

Wow, thanks, I appreciate that.

My recommendation would go to RocketMeowth, for Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Team Nine Lives to the Rescue.

Deep, creative, reflective, this story does it all, and I've been pleasantly surprised on many accounts throughout the story and the interaction between the characters. Plus, the background storyline, the organization behind the rescue force, the ranks, and the sub storylines with Henry and Naru are very deep and interesting. Also, everything is very well developed that you easily forget the fact that several of the characters are named and modeled after PE2K members. Here, they have a very fresh and involved story of their own, and all of their personal experiences all build up to the main problem at hand involving the orbs of creation.

I read this fic very religiously, and I definitely recommend it to anyone itching to get into a very enticing and exciting story.

Well, I'm recomending a story that I've been posting - Aeon.

It's not written by me; it's written by a friend of mine (Scrap) and she's currently in Africa, if I recall correctly. I've been posting it, and its really a grand fic (which unfortunately has too little reviews to justify...) It's harbored loads of attentio and regconigiton from members of Serebii forum, and I brought it here in hopes for other people to read this marvel.

Its a very cool story, with excellent descrpition and stuff. The thing about Aeon is that its chapters are not in chronological order at all - rather, it skips between the past, present and future and only highlight the more... important stuff rather than a whole slogging journey. But Scrap pulls the style off really well, and results in a totally amazing story that somehow, acts like a puzzle as well, a new piece given with each chapter.

I highly recomend everyone to read this, even if its me posting it... ><;

*blinketh*

Fic recommendation: The whole heartedly unloved and unnoticed 'A Bumpy Ride' by Ejunknown. I personally loved it - It's exciting, fast paced, and most certainly the best written Naruto fic on this forum - And trust me, I've checked. Akatsuki FTW!

Deathspector: I am utterly in love with Fall Out Boy. :3 Got their CD ('Infinity on High', I believe it is) at Easter and have been playing it ever since. I love the entire thing. XD

"And I saw God crying in the reflections of my enemies, and all the lovers who had no time for me. And all of the mothers raise their babies... To stay away from me..."
