HAPPY TIMES, MISFITS!

Our story begins a long, long time ago, on Twitter, where a young Pokemon trainer dreamed of being a writer. Or maybe the other way around.


Our trainer, let's call her Red, went on her way through the magical world of storytelling. She livetweeted all her pokemon battles--and her stories--conquering them all fiercely.


Along the way she met other, equally crazy awesome, trainers and more often than not, they fought, ripping each other's stories apart and healing them with coffee magic berries.


She wrote stories that brought them all to TEARS. Like, seriously, UGLY CRYING.


With her amazingly gorgeous and heartwrenching writing, she snagged herself an agent to travel the wild and wondrous world of Pokemon writing with her.


Then, one day, when Red was in fighting fit shape, she knew the time had come to face the Elite Four let her story free into the world, with a little help from her agent.


And then... one day...



This happened:
The story that broke all our hearts (I'm so not kidding) will break all your hearts in 2014! ASK AGAIN LATER is an amazing story about what it means to be human and what it means to be normal. It was without doubt one of my favorite CP reads last year and I'm so thrilled the world will get to know Alex and Miles and Charlie and all the rest.

So go add it to Goodreads here and congratulate Chessie here!

CONGRATS CHESS! I'd totally hug you if I could.

Um. This combined writing with Pokemon. I can't get over this. I am so happy.

Congratulations to trainer, er, AUTHOR Red! You caught the Mewtwo, you beat Brock with a level 10 Charmander, you found the Poke Flute and moved that damn Snorlax!

Okay, I'm done making Pokemon references now.
