So in class, we're writing short works of poetry that's supposed to convey deeper meaning. The topic is currently revolving around life, death, the afterlife, etc. Specifically, it's about "The Day of the Dead" in Spanish class, about the "ofrendas" or altars offered to the dead.

Anyways, Pokemon, out of nowhere, and made a huge comeback with me and my friends. We've been constantly making gay, but funny jokes, slipping it in where we can throughout the day.

So, I thought it'd be hilarious to allude to Pokemon in this assignment, but not making it too obvious. I thought of things like the color lavender, mt. pyre, weep.....ingbell, revive, full restore, etc.

One line would read, "Paralyzed, by this oddish gloom"

Suggest some funny, deep poetic lines.

A. Don't double post.

B. This would belong in the discussions thread, or even the competitions forum, and make a competition out of it.

And why the hell not? Why is it, that as soon as someone who has the rank 'bug catcher' posts any where (particularly here) people start ripping into them without giving them the time to further explain themselves. Suppose Krisp or another popular admin or moderator created this sort of topic, the lot of you would start sucking right up and begin posting here. Can you, Treeckomaster, honestly say that you would have posted the same if they had created the same topic?

And I think this is the perfect place for it to go in. It's writing of a Pokemon nature. If this is the case, Ghost Writer, then Goldenquagsire should have put his poems in the Discussion thread. And from what I can see, Brian doesn't want to make it into a competition. If he did, then I'm sure he would have put it into the corresponding area.

Brian, I'm liking the idea a lot, and it would certainly be amusing to have a poem filled with Pokemon-esque lines. I'm afraid I'm not entirely 'up' on the topic you describe, but I suppose I could put a few ideas down. ;)

"The weeping bells shed gloom over the dark, crying city."

"Kissed by a cold jinx. Frozen."

(Weepingbell, Gloom, Darkrai, Lovely Kiss, Jynx, Frozen)

{Having realised that it isn't a dark and gloomy event, the above sentence really doesn't work, but I'll keep it there because I like it. :P}

Can't actaully think of anymore, but if I do, I'll be sure to add some in. ;)

I think it's a clever idea. I wonder if anyone would catch what you're doing. I'd offer a line but I'm not good at poetry, at all. Let me know how it goes over.

I understand if someone's being a n00b and getting mad, but lately everyone seems on edge. I don't see anything wrong with this thread. Did something happen that I missed?

No, he wants us to do his homework for us, and write for him. That is one of the few things I refuse to do; write for other people.

And, he should put this in the Competitions forum BECAUSE, he could make a contest like "Help me write lines for my story, and I'll give you Psybucks!" Something like that.

Wow, you flaming haters. This is just for fun and creativity in writing, which is why I chose this thread. What's it to you anyway, thanks for letting everyone know how gayly pessimistic you are on what some guy, who just signed up (you can even check my join date), posted. I'm bringing something interesting and unique to psypokes, something I've yet to see anywhere else.


Anyways, Thunder_dude7, that's awesome. It's very subliminal.

Anyways, with any assignment aside (which I've turned in already with no pokemon content at all because, seriously, pokemon in homework?), I plan on continuing this to produce pure pokemon entertainment through WRITING. This is a perfect spot to put it.

Please don't use 'gayly' as an adverb..unless you're saying --> 'the two people were gayly skipping in the field,' which you aren't. :(

I'm not flaming. What I'm saying is that I feel offended everytime somebody wants to use my ideas to achieve something for themselves.

What you should've done is posted what you have on the poem thus far, then asking our opinion and how you can approve. We're not here to help you get an A on an assignment. We're here to help you improve as an independent writer. If you're just using other people's ideas (even if they willingly post them) instead of trying it out first, you're not going to get very far as a writer.

Do I make any sense?

PS. Don't use the word "gay" out of context like that. Frost gets very offended when somebody does.

Tell me Ghost Writer, does Brian strike you as the sort of person that needs help with his homework? Adding to that, do you really think that someone is going to create an account on Psypoke so he can put Pokemon themes into poetry solely for the purpose of homework? For god's sake, have a bit of sense!

This is the first non-noob that's come to the Library and already he's being scared off by those that have been here longer. And if you felt it should have been put somewhere else, report it to a mod. They actually have the power to move topics, a post like "this should be somewhere else" and "don't double post" is actually spam, and just as bad as offending in the way that you criticised.

And what right do you have to tell someone where their topic should go anyway? This is an area where creative writing is used in conjunction with Pokemon, and Brian's idea (which, as he says, is unique) falls into both categories. Why should he change the whole nature of his topic to suit what you want?

And you seem to have missed Brian's point and gone on with your 'my work for your achievement thing:'

It was all just a laugh. For god's sake, have a bit of humour and don't start flaming and scaring off potentially good additions to the already dwindling numbers of decent writers we have here.

*ahem* Obsidian, you're refering to a post that was made after I made my original interjecture. His first post failed to mention that he had already turned it in.

Look, I can get where we both got confused. What I was saying that it sounded like in his post he wanted to use other people's ideas in his assignment. And if there is one thing that really ticks me off is when you use other people's writing to place in one of you own works, even if the original writer gave their consent. It's the way I am, deal with it.

I did not EVER flame him. People are using the word Flame in the forums wrong. Flaming is when you openly insult somebody. I never did that. So, you should have some sense before jumping to conclusions, like I did.

Look, I can see why everone is excited. It's something new aside from the other stories and poems.

And I'm not asking for him to change the topic, either. What I was saying is that, if he wants to be better as a writer, he should post what he has first, so we can tell him what we think about it. See, if we just give him stuff to put in his poem, then how would that help him? It's like giving somebody that answers on a piece of homework. Also, it would've helped us see where he was going with it so we could help him more.

Now, drop this. All we're doing is spamming this topic. So, just stop. Continue it through pms if you must.

What is wrong with this picture?


The problem is that I never said he was a dirty cheater and copier. That would be a flame, and I didn't do it.

Thunder Dude, if you're smart, you'll drop this like I asked.

Mt. Pyre is colored lavender. Isn't that such an oddish color?

Guys, could you please put an end to this arguing? If anyone has a problem with this topic then stay away, no one's forcing members to post here. Also, stop with this high-rank thing, it's really annoying.

If <i>anyone</i> posts anything that has to do with that bloody arguing after my post I'll lock the topic.
