    Written Story Johto Mature An Arduous, Atoning, and Amazing Adventure

    Good morning/afternoon/evening (depending on your time zone and time of reading this), fellow Nuzlockers! This is a story I've had in the works for a very long time, and I'm super excited to be finally bringing it to you! A while back, the Alphabetlocke caught my attention, and I decided to try...

    Written Story Kalos Mixed Media Teen Mon Poor Unfortunate Souls - A Pokémon X Nuzlocke

    Ever since the two moons shone in the sky, life and death have been an integral part of our culture. One cannot exist without the other, we acknowledge both the joys and the perils that our world has brought us. This can be no better exemplified in the Kalos League, a national competition that...

    Written Story Kanto Teen The Hippocratic Oath (Chapter 15 11/6/21; this update also includes a TW and pictures of my new puppy~~~)

    Well, folks, the day has come. The day I finally bite the bullet and post not only my first true written story, but my first PLANNED, GAMEPLAY IS FINISHED posted run. That means I don't have the "it's nothing serious, I was just writing as I play" excuse I hid behind with my last two runs if...

    Written Story Kanto Mature My Scarred Heart Beats On

    So, this is the storylocke I had on the backburner. Based on (part of, I'm currently halfway through) a run of Pokémon Blue I started at the end of last year. This ain't going to be about actual Pokémon, I've never really been good at writing about the little devils ever, so this will be all...

    Written Story Hoenn Mature Mon Wishing for the World to Change: A Pokemon Randomized Emerald Storylocke

    Hello! This is my first storylocke on the forum. I used to write short stories for my nuzlockes all the time and after a couple of years hiatus decided to get back into writing stories again. I have never really shared them with the world because I have always been kind of embarrassed by my...

    Screenshot Kanto Written Log Teen Commentary Mon A Legend Rises: The first of many

    So... I guess we're doing it! As this is the first thread in (hopefully) many to come, I guess this warrants an explanation: TL;DR; My intention is to play through the entire series in nuzlocke runs because the regular games low difficulty just makes it not fun for me. Back to the jam, in this...

    Written Showcase Original Teen Grim

    A little bit ago I wrote a little piece of flash fiction about the Grim Reaper as kind of an attempt at comforting myself, I guess. I ended up kinda liking it and wanted to post it here just to have it SOMEWHERE that isn't a discord server haha! --- The Grim Reaper didn’t think he was cruel...

    Written Story Fan Teen Sunlit Memories - a PMD2-based Story

    Hello and welcome to Sunlit Memories, an idea I've had for a while now that I decided to just get started on writing out! Might as well have pokemon fans Consume the results, right? I may cross post these to ao3, but i'm unsure! What's the premise of this? Well... basically, there's a...

    Written Story Kalos Teen Gijinka Showstoppers; an X/Y Gijinka Duallocke

    So the idea for this run came to me when I was watching the new seasons of Raven (basically it's a physically-oriented kids' game show with a thin layer of 'in-story' narrative glazed over the top) a few years back; it amounts to 'okay so how would a world where Pokemon are basically humans with...

    Written Story Fan Teen FFXIV: Gunbreaker

    So if you hang around the Discord servers, you may or may not have noticed the incredible amount of time I have been pumping into Final Fantasy XIV lately. The game has me hooked, and I thought what better way to both appreciate the experience and kick my writing muscles back into gear than by...

    Written Story Johto Teen Mon A Soul That Shines Silver

    Hello everybody! This is the very first written nuzlocke I've done based on my Soul Silver run that I've done a few years back. I actually had it on AO3 a while back but I decided to rewrite it and that became outdated and I wiped all the old stuff from AO3. Speaking of which, read it on AO3...

    Hello I am Uberle And welcome to my first go at a fully written run Why yes I am very nervous So ruleset is pretty generic 1. First encounter 2. Nickname everything 3. Faint=Box Now quick notes about the randomization Alola has a weird reaction to being randomized See trainer's Pokemon are...

    Written Story Hoenn Mature Gijinka Astra Crystallum- A lightly randomised Emerald Gijinka Story

    Hi everyone! It's that Tookie bloke, the one who mostly does silly screenshot runs, independently trying his hand at something a bit... wordier. A while back, I had the horrible concept for a gijinka RP that also took concepts from Final Fantasy Tactics and FF14. For various reasons, this never...
