How It All Began

Hey, I know it’s been ages since I last posted, and this will probably be my last blog post for this blog. Before I go, I have one last story to tell.

A few years ago, when I was 11, I was getting a little bored during school. I had finished all my work, along with many of my classmates, and had nothing to do. So I got on a computer and started to look at drawings of Pokémon. Eventually, I came across this one:

I wish I knew the name of the artist, but I do not.

Anyway, I loved this picture so much, I decided to write a little story about it. I gave each Eeveelution a human name, and a personality, and had them go on adventures together.

Once I finished the story, I was really proud of it, and I wanted to share it with the world.

And here we are. All because of that picture.

Thank you, unknown artist. Because of you, I actually finished my first “book” (if you can call it that). Because of you, I started to love to write.

Thank you.

An Author’s Odyssey

Hello everybody! Wow, it feels so good to be writing again! I have some good news and some bad news. I’ll start with the bad news.

I still have no ideas for this blog.

Sorry, I really don’t. It may take a while…

Let me cheer you up with some good news…

I have a new blog!

I’m so excited! It’s called An Author’s Odyssey, and I can’t wait to share it with you!

It’s a little bit different from this blog. Instead of posting chapters of books I’m writing, I’ll give you, dear readers, a prompt to write about!

Okay, so it’s not the most original idea out there, but I think it’ll be fun for everyone!

If you liked my blog, check out An Author’s Odyssey! If you disliked my blog, well, still feel free to check it out. I believe I have some creative prompts.

Until next time,

Avaroo

“Athena! How is it coming?”

“Wonderfully. According to this data, the Corsola population has increased by 11% in the last 20 years. Furthermore, we did a count of how many trainers still have Corsola as well, so their overall population is much higher than we originally thought. They no longer belong in the Endangered category. We may not need to enforce a ban on capturing Corsola after all! Finally, their top predator, Mareanie, has returned to a stable population as well. They are no longer near the Carrying Capacity.”

Miss Wicke smiled. “Thank you, Athena.”

“Miss Wicke? There is still a slight problem.”

“Really?”

I took a deep breath and began. “The population of Eevee in the Alola region has dropped. We have evidence that they are not simply evolving in the wild. Less Eevee are being born each year, and less are surviving to adulthood. I used my latest invention to scan their natural habitats, and there seems to be a disease going around,” I started to choke up with worry, but still tried to keep a straight face. “The disease only affects Eevee and their evolutions, because the Eevee DNA is so unstable. The disease is more of a virus, and seems to have mutated from Pokérus. This new virus hijacks the cells, and releases its own RNA. The RNA then serves two purposes, much to our surprise. It rewrites the DNA of the cell, and forces it to produce more of the virus. But it also manipulates the cells before they die, in a way that makes the Pokémon try to evolve. But since the cells are dying, it gets stuck in between evolution. This can lead to an extremely painful death. It hasn’t spread outside of Route 6, however, so there is a chance it can be stopped.”

“Oh dear. What is our medical crew doing now?”

“They are examining two Eevee now. One is perfectly healthy, and the other very sick. They have all ready discovered that the virus is transmitted by contact. They are testing a cure now.”

“Good. Hopefully this is the last time the Aether Founder has to save a species.”

“Miss?”

“Athena, you’re too young to know, but about 30 years ago, the Pokémon populations seemed to put on strain. Before that trainers were free to catch as many as they wanted. But something happened, and the Pokémon started dying. No one knew why, but new diseases appeared, droughts started to become more common, and natural disasters became more dangerous. We think it is due to what we are calling Global Warming. We humans were not always so kind to this planet. We released so many chemicals into the water and into the air. Eventually we became more Eco-Friendly, but recently scientists have discovered that the effects still linger. They are clogging the atmosphere. Every day our precious planet grows warmer. Athena… I want you to try to fix that. You are exceptionally brilliant. If anyone can find a way to fix our mess, it’s you. Of course, it may all be nonsense, but that’s up to you to figure out.”

“I am Lord Trepidation! Master of all fear! You will never defeat me!”

“Maybe… But I can try!”

I smiled and started to turn off my computer. Who could have guessed writing for children could be so much fun?

Slowly my smiled faded as my fingers drummed against the table. Now what was I to do? The graphic novel was finished for this year.

I could have tried to find ideas for new novels, but that required too much thinking and not enough drawing.

Immediately my hand grabbed paper and a pencil. Doodling always helped me think.

My hand flew across the paper before I knew what I was doing. 20 minutes later I was finally allowed to see what my hands had done.

I held the paper up to the light and got the intense feeling of deja vu.

I had drawn a series of objects side by side. From left to right I had drawn an omanyte fossil, a running shoe, a camera, a pencil, a trench coat, a cruise ship, Latios, a paint brush, and a gear.

A memory stubbornly tugged at the back of my mind. These sketches reminded me of something… But what?

I squinted and suddenly the pictures mellded together and I thought for a moment I saw my sisters’ faces. I blinked and the image was gone.

My sisters. I had been so busy with my career, I had almost forgotten about them. What were they up to?

Ember was begining her writing career. That much I knew. I wasn’t sure, but I suspected Athena was still working for Professor Sycamore. Gidget was working on the Big Dipper. Luna was in Katilla doing who-knows-what. As for the rest of my sisters, I had no idea what they were doing.

I could almost hear Luna’s disappointed voice. “How could you forget about us, Jackie? We’re your family. Family should always come first.”

I shook my head out of frustration. I had enough with my sisters. I had to stop thinking about them.

I started the radio and started sketching a world that had come to me in a dream the previous night.

I gasped. The stubborn memory had finally been realized. I remembered! The sketchs that I had drawn were the same images Ella had seen in the clouds after our trip to Alola!

I almost laughed at the stupidity of the notion. They couldn’t be the same objects. And even if they were, what did it matter? They were just silly drawings.

Right?

“Hey, Luna! Where are you going?”

I turned around to see Latios standing behind me, right outside my door.

“I just came back from visiting Ho-Oh. Ember wanted to talk to him.”

“Oh. I thought you should know that crime rates are up.”

“You must be busy.”

“Yes, I actually am… Which is why I was wondering if you would consider-

“Latios, what you and Latias do is amazing, but it’s not for me.”

“I knew you would say that. The people need you, Luna.”

“Why me? There are many other talented people here. People who battle for fun.”

Latios’ face started to show a new tint of red.

“I don’t know them like I know you.”

I gave a sweet smile, but secretly I was holding back the hurt he had just brought upon me. It was painfully obvious that he still liked me more than a friend… If only I felt the same way.

“I’m really sorry, but I just can’t do it. I can’t hurt a person.”

Latios seemed to smirk at my words. “Do you remember when we first met?You knocked me unconscious…”

I felt actual annoyance build up inside until I looked into the eyes of Latios. This was my long time friend, who stood with me through everything. How could I be mad?

I gave a sincere chuckle. “That was different. Besides, you knocked me into a wall before I did anything.”

Latios laughed. “I did, didn’t I? I’m sorry.”

“I think you’ve said that a million times.”

“Really? I thought it was more than that.”

We laughed at the inside joke until our own insides hurt. The sun in the distance began to slowly grasp the horizon, fusing the sky into shades of lilac, orange and a soft pink.

We sat together in silence for what seemed like a perfect eternity.

“Luna? The Rolling Hills are supposed to be nice this time of year. Maybe we could check them out some time?”

My heart fluttered, leaving me momentarily confused. I quickly regined my senses.

“I’d like that.”
