All these stories are pretty much just here for nostalgic purposes, to reminis about the old days of Pokémon fanfic and all that came before Silent Harmony. Many (most?) of these are unfinished, and never will be, either.

Link the Blurty
Notes Most of these are from the Yrae Chronicles and have migrated to the yrae LiveJournal community, but there are also things I did for year 12 English, plus some other random things I did before the twins showed up. The Blurty used to be my writing journal.


Dated mid-2000. Yeah, I warned you this stuff was old

Backstories Gentle Shadow | Glacier's Story | Untamed Fire
Plot An Articuno has her egg stolen, so she leaves the mountains to look for it.
Notes My first ever creative piece that wasn't for school. Quite popular back in the Pokémon days. To be honest I probably haven't read it in a decade so I've forgotten what my prose was like back then. I warn you it's probably pretty purple, though. And probably full of Mary-Sues even though I do remember consciously trying to stay away from them. Sapphire almost definitely was one. Sorry, Sapphire. I was 15 what do you want from me?

Plot ...You know what? I totally forget. I don't think I had one. Sequal to Snowdrift, anyway. Snowfall's son is the narrator, and thus concludes my knowledge.
Notes Yeah I got nothing. I had so much fun writing Snowdrift that I thought I'd write a sequel. It's been that long since I even looked at this that I honestly can't remember what it was about.

Plot Aurinko, an albino Nidoran, is ridiculed for her white fur amongst the other Nidoran in her warren. By contrast, Kuu's black fur makes him loved and adored, despite being a tiny little thing.
Notes I loved this when I was writing it, thennnnn it started being a chore to write so I dropped it, alas. They were eventually going to meet up, but sadly that never happened, mostly because I started looking into writing original fiction instead. This was my baby back in high school. I felt at the time like I had been writing this for ages, but it couldn't have been much more than a year, looking at the timelines. My formative writing years!

Plot That's the problem and why the fic never went anywhere: there was no plot. Basically, four school girls find out they're element girls. Beyond that? You know as much as I do.
Notes My first attempt at original fiction. Being as it resembled every magical-girl animé and also several teenage school girl 90s TV shows around at the time, it wasn't really all that original. Hrm... yes. Corny and crap, wai!

Chapters 0 1 (well, a bit of it) incomplete
Plot There was a drought somewhere in Pokémon land, so a group of Spearow decided to go look for Articuno to make it rain.
Notes This was a cute idea. I was going to do a short story for each of the bird Pokémon searching for Articuno, all for different reasons. Judging by the word count of part one, I was clearly dedicated to this one.

Emerald Feather

Dated late 2002
Word Count 46 658
Chapters 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26
Plot A catgirl discovers she has magic, but not just any magic. While all the other cat people on the island have earth, fire, water or air magic, Keena has the magic of death.
Notes This was the fic that made me think I could do NaNoWriMo, because I wrote this in about a month and a half. Started off as a random picture of a catgirl, who then got a little snippet of fic, which then expanded into a novel-length fic. Good on 'er! I'm still relatively happy with this one, mostly because it was the first original piece of fiction that actually had a plot and decent characters. As I said, sentimental, nostalgic value!


Dated early 2003
Word Count 31 869
Chapters 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 incomplete
Plot Sequal of sorts to Emerald Feather. Some cat girl wanted revenge on humans for killing her family and succeeded in knocking out two villages on Umnikai (the island where EF was set) before she was interrupted. Some guy called Blade had sword magic and he was fun and awesome during the day then went batshit when the sun set. And then Mark, who thought he was human but was actually a cat person with animal magic, turned the story to corny crap and for some reason I chose him as the point of view character? Oh, teenage Narti, you had potential.
Notes Written on an EF high at the end of 2002/beginning of 2003, then my girls appeared to save me. Rereading the outline this could've been kinda cool and something I'd have been proud of. Alas, teenage-me was not that cool. Honestly, I don't know how I got as far with this one as I did. It's full of corny. So, so corny. And crap. Very corny and very crap.
