Another Friday means another feature! I've got a storylocke for you guys today. And not just any storylocke. This is...

Wonderwall by Washi! And there's a banner for it too!

That is one nice banner, not gonna lie.

A nuzlocke of Pokemon Yellow version, Wonderwall features a protagonist that you don't see very often in most nuzlockes - The narrator is Casey, a Pikachu with a guitar and a grumpy attitude. Intrigued, yet? Washi's other characters are just as memorable - the trainer is True, who's more Casey's partner rather than trainer. (Although, True does train Pokemon, too!) The rest of the team are very dynamic in their personalities, and not once does anybody feel like stereotypical . Washi has a handle on all of their characters and it shows. Even the rival, Gary Oak, has a personality that's completely opposite True (and his starter, Cassidy, is the same to Casey) but that makes them even more interesting when they show up to interact with everyone else. Seriously, the way she writes her characters and their interactions (and reactions!) with each other, are just great.

Casey himself is definitely an interesting take on the usual starter persona. For one, he doesn't like to battle - which is hinted at multiple times throughout the story that it most likely has something to do with his past - and his relationship with True is something that makes them both more real as characters.

Another thing that is captured my interest was the dialogue. Washi's dialogue never feels stilted or generic, but instead does the exact opposite. She knows how to use the dialogue to express the character's emotions and thoughts, and they benefit from it. Her descriptions, on the other hand, are very nice and the world building shines through and makes you want to learn more about the world that Washi has set up for her nuzlocke.

So far, in story, they're defeated two gyms, and both matches were exciting to read. The Misty battle was my favorite, for me anyway. I'm curious to see where the other battles go, and hoping Casey's past will be revealed as the story goes along. Whatever the case, Washi will handle it beautifully, I'm sure.

With that, go give Wonderwall a read! If you have suggestions, make sure to head to this thread; we like to hear your thoughts. :3 See you next time, next Friday!
