25/07/20: Happy surprise Embers of the Past update day! Even I'm surprised I did it. If you were an old fan of the story, you might want to check it out. I'm taking whatever reader input I get for the remaining few chapters.

17/07/20: I've changed my mind. I've come to realize that [False Start] has some serious fundamental flaws that are holding it back from being the true continuation to Embers that I wanted, so I'm retiring this edition of the story. Version 1.3 is being worked on for bug fixes and graphical updates, and it'll hopefully come out on the other end as a much-improved version 2.0! Or 2.2. I don't know how video game versions are numbered. Bottom line is, this cake is so underbaked that I'm not just putting it back in the oven, I'm going back to the recipe and mixing it together all over again.

Huge thank you to the people who supported me, and whether or not you come back for the eventual rerelease of my story, you've been a tremendous help and inspiration to me to make me keep writing.

I am on Tumblr and AO3 as naturallydark.


Name: Nat

Age: 22

Gender: Male

Location: Canada


False Start: A traitor, a feral, a coward, and an amnesiac gradually find themselves drawn together by the hands of fate as the clock ticks down to what may be the end of the world. They'll have to set aside their beliefs and put their trust in each other or risk falling apart right when their world needs them most. [21 chapters] [On indefinite hiatus; to be rewritten]

Embers of the Past: Julia, a new pokémon trainer, befriends a cyndaquil with whom she begins to feel a strange and familiar bond. Julia, an amnesiac human-turned-pokémon in a world where no other humans exist, befriends a cyndaquil with whom she partners on a quest to prevent the collapse of time. Two connected stories told through alternating chapters. [45/48 chapters] [Future update times uncertain]

Sparks of the Future (not yet written): The true rewrite-sequel to Embers of the Past, this time with 95% less meta! Coming to a crusty old fanfiction website near you in 2021-2022, probably.

Team Charm series: What would happen if you took the charming ladies of Team Charm and hyped them up on sugar and the lolrandom humour of 2014? You get absolute chaos. A series of crackfics featuring Team Charm as well as some of the other teams of the PMD games. Reading order: Team Charm's Mega Evolution, Team Raider Doesn't Mega Evolve, Team Charm Freaks Out, Team Charm Goes Totally Meta, Team Charm Checks the News.

Fabulous PMD Shipdump: Do regular shipfics full of logical pairings and sweet fluff bore you? Look no further than the Fabulous PMD Shipdump, a dumpster fire of the most bizarre pairings of the PMD universe. If there's a pairing you want to see, drop a request in the reviews and I'll do my best to fulfill it. Just don't expect anything coherent. [5/?? chapters] [By-request updates]

Snoozin': Bidoof journals the changes that come when Croagunk begins sneaking in to sleep in his room at the guild. A short shipping story told journal entry by journal entry. [18/18 chapters] [Complete]

Shipping oneshots:

Gotcha: Team Ebony are usually content with going after treasure and playing little pranks on others; but to Murkrow's horror, it seems Shuppet has finally had enough.

If Things Had Been Different: A curious sableye has a rare opportunity to speak with Celebi even as he's forced to follow Dusknoir's plans to use her as bait.

Macaroni: An incredibly short and nonsensical one-sided Chimecho x Croagunk fic written by my sister.

Never Have I Ever: During a usual night of sitting guard by the guild's entrance, Chatot is surprised by the appearance of Wigglytuff, who wants to play a friendly game with him.

No Turning Back: Moments before Grovyle takes the Passage of Time to the past, Celebi is hit with regret about the relationship she never could have had with him.

Sentry Duty: After putting up with Loudred's insults for too long, Diglett invites the vociferous pokémon to swap jobs with him for the day.

Virizion Does a Thing: Emolga and Dunsparce are not in a relationship. Virizion wishes they were.

Weavile's Beginning: Ever since they were kids, Sneasel and Buneary have been the best of friends. But when tragedy strikes, a rift forms between them that can never fully be closed.

Non-shipping oneshots:

The Art of Painting a Flag: Smeargle is having difficulty painting the perfect flag for a rescue team until a mankey teaches him not to worry about meeting the standards of others.

Emolga Loses His Macarons: Emolga is excited to be the first pokémon in Post Town to get a taste of the new macarons Swanna is selling, but as it turns out today's not Emolga's lucky day.

V-Wheeeeel!: Sick of being put at a disadvantage by Victini's V-Waves, Emolga decides to give the V-Wheel a spin.

The Wrath of the Blue Waddle Dee: In his endeavour to defeat Kirby, King Dedede purchases his most menacing demon beast yet: a waddle dee who happens to be blue.

As a disclaimer, I wrote most of my fanfics on here when I was around 15 years old and as such aren't at the standard of quality I currently have for my works. Feel free to read them, but please note that they are not indicative of my current writing skill or beliefs.

Also, if I haven't included one of my fics in this list, it's probably because I'm trying to pretend it doesn't exist. Do yourself a favour and avoid those fics as much as I do.


These are all stories that I've read that have inspired me, and I highly recommend checking all of them out!
