    If you're applying to be a mentor, you'll need to provide some samples of your writing and reviews made as well, please. (Doesn't have to be on this forum).

    Alright, if it's desperately needed, can I get re-added? Still kind of busy, but I have more time and can certainly help out one or two people.


    Though probably obvious with the picture, I was formerly known as IanDonyer. Actually got a username closer to my real name, now.

    Alright, I update that bit.

    Think I might PM a few of the older people on the list sometime to see if they still want someone/didnt mention they found someone.

    Story title: Embrace

    Fandom (preferably pokémon): Pokémon

    Plot summary:

    A riolu egg is abandoned at a breeding facility. An older teen raises him while filling him with hope that soon his trainer and his father will return. This is the story of a teen's promise to find those that left riolu behind. With a distaste for battling and an unorthodox career this will be harder than it seems.

    Genre: Drama, Action, Comedy (Some)

    Rating: Most likely rated "R" For sexual references ( Protagonist is a breeder).

    Mentor needed: Comprehensive / Plot

    Prior writing experience: School work. Otherwise it's my first fic.

    Preferred mentor (optional): -

    Writing sample (optional, but expected): I've never published anything. If someone is curios I'll gladly post the prologue to this story.

    Other (optional): As a newer writer, I sometimes I have trouble sticking to one tense. Consequently, I need to be slapped repeatedly with a large trout until I learn my lesson. I will accept and enjoy said fishy beatings, as I want to improve.

    I'm alive, I'm alive!

    Thanks for telling me, Glover. Zoruagible, you already have an entry there so I'm not updating that one (given how many people want a mentor as it is), sorry. You can replace your first one if you want though. And Drippy Miltank, you've been added; and as I noticed your previous edit of maybe wanting to be a mentor as well, if you want to still do that just make another post using the mentor application.

    Going to make some PMs now to people on the list for a while to see if they still want. And if I don't get any reply in a week I'll assume they don't need a mentor anymore and remove said request because it seems odd to me for people to still want it after half a year.

    And after more than a week and some replies (and some not, including from people who haven't even signed on for half a year) and other PMs the list of people wanting mentors is now significantly smaller, but nonetheless more mentors is always something needed! =p

    Default Beta Reader/Editor wanted

    It seems that the Beta Reader thread has sunk pretty low. Well, I'm desperate enough so here I go. If I'm in violation of something, I'm sorry.

    My old Beta Reader had to drop me since our time tables aren't able to match. I need a new one who can suit my needs to work on my fanfic. Here's what I'm working on and what I expect a Beta Reader to help me with:

    Pokemon: The Black & White Adventures is my adaptation of the games, Pokemon Black, Pokemon White, Pokemon Black 2 and Pokemon White 2 obviously. The storyline for the first series basically follows Hilda, a 14 year old Pokemon Trainer, journeying Unova to enter the League, complete the Pokedex and stop Team Plasma with the mysterious young man named N. The second series (02) follows 16 year old Bunny (my nickname for the BW2 protagonist but her actual game name will be used as her birth name) and her boyfriend (the BW2 rival) journeying Unova and encountering the revived Team Plasma.

    If you have any doubts of this, I guarantee that the actual stories will NOT be carbon copies of the games' storylines and characters. It may be a Trainer Fic but I intend for it to stick out in a good way. Though the majority of their elements will be used, I intend to expand on them and put a twist on certain things. For one thing, Bianca is Juniper's assistant from the get-go and Cheren is Looker's nephew and crime fighting partner. As such, they're not Hilda's rivals but still play a role. Elesa is a singer and actress. N is Hilda's rival and fellow Dex Holder. And yes, there's Ferriswheelshipping and I intend to pull it off well. I wish I could explain more but I'd rather not spoil anything outside PMs since a lot of these twists might genuinely surprise readers.

    For a Beta Reader, I need someone who's a very frequent regular here with plenty of time to kill when discussing and brainstorming with me via PMs. If you're busy with personal issues at a particular moment, I'll understand and wait for your return if it's very important. You should be willing and interested to work with me and help me with my characters, stories and ideas. Maybe even make your suggestions. Of course, they must be a fan of Generation V and Unova with enough knowledge on it but you probably knew that.

    They also must be flexible with dark, light and thrillingly epic tones since my Trainer fic isn't mature in the sense of nudity, sex and extreme violence or light in the sense of the Pokemon Anime but on the level of epicness like Pokemon Special or Digimon more or less. It's pretty young adultish like Harry Potter or Molly Moon and I plan to give it a sense of an action cartoon with a storyline and standalone stories for the characters as well as elements so older readers can have fun. The characters are written to be gray where they're not perfect in the sense that they makes mistakes like any person would. It's less cliched and shabby than you'd believe but I'll let you be the judge.

    And example would be Hilda: she was raised to be smart, quick witted, outdoorsy and athletic. She also studied extensively on Pokemon, Training and Battling from books so we see her use her knowledge for hands on experience and strategies. She's serious when the situation calls for it and smart enough to take care of herself but is young at heart so she plays games with her Pokemon outside training and battling. The childish persona is her way of letting loose and having fun in a good mood so she doesn't go insane from being serious 24/7. She doesn't start out as one and develop into the other but rather she's both from the get go: well-rounded and subtly developed over the story. Though she's a great prodigy, she does make mistakes when caught up in her emotions or playing the hero against Team Plasma.

    Anyways, my Beta needs to be imaginative for this and not take things too seriously. A fun and understanding person. I also have Aspergers Syndrome so if I say something I shouldn't have by accident, please address this so I may apologize.

    So, any volunteers?

    You got that right! The Legend of Korra is returning on October 3rd! Mark your calendars!

    *Looks at last post date* At the risk of being yelled at; may I be re-added as a mentoree? Silentmemento is unavailable to help me at the moment.

    Hmm... tbh given the huge gap and all since the last post I think it might be an idea to just restart this thread. Thoughts? And on that note, any thoughts about any changes that could be implemented for the new version?

    I think it's for the best. I'll bet many of those needing mentors won't come back, and a short list of mentorees would be less daunting. Hopefully, this will attracting new mentors.

    Yes, given your requests would be actually current rather than half a year old minimum. Same goes for mentors too - probably best to just start fresh on that.

    Closing and new thread made here.

    On the list already is Drippy Miltank and Zoruagible; matt0044, I need you to use the form for applying (which I guess didn't happen as you had a separate thread anyways, but!). Also Bay as mentor as she said she's okay with being on the list while I was remaking. Everyone else needs to reapply/let me know if they still want to be on the list if they were already.
