IN WHICH I SAY HIII.

(Oh my, this comm is so awfully inactive. ;A;)

So I’m here to introduce myself to the fandom since I’m a newbie. (but maybe you don’t really care about that, so I’ll just say I’m sixteen, Portuguese, and I love drawing and writing.)

I really wanted to make my first post with some sketches I’ve been drawing these times because gold/silver or silver/gold (whatever) has eaten my brains and maybe some screenshots from my simmies of them…?
Maybe later, I’m too lazy to scan them now. orz

Also, I’d really like to ask for fanart & fanfiction recommendations? I’m really fond of those, and I don’t really know where to look for them and I’m really unsure about how to characterize Gold. …So, yeah.

Please help me?

(I KNOW, RIGHT? ;A;)

But um... I don't really know many good things to reccommend, but you can look here: http://preciousmetal-fc.deviantart.com/
Oh~ Or if you have a Pixiv account, here's the PreciousMetalShipping tag: http://www.pixiv.net/tags.php?tag=%E3%82%B4%E3%82%B7%E3%83%AB

As for characterizing Gold, I guess it would depend on like... if you wanted to use Pokemon Special Gold or gameverse Gold, or even GS!Gold vs HGSS!Gold seems to affect interpretations a lot. :|a
Or even like, who you want as seme and uke can make a big difference too, if you're into that kind of thing. =3=

Thank you very much for the links! I really appreciate it!

I think I'd rather go for HGSS!Gold, since it was because of those games that I actually started shipping them...
But then again, I don't know which is the one people like/use the most... :/
(Ah ah, I really love seme!Gold, but then again, I also love uke!Gold, so I sense a lot of non-determined role. (: )

The Comm is a little dead, isn't it? I wonder if any of us could bring it back to life. ; ____ ;

The Gold/Silver tag on Pixiv is your FRIEND, Aqquaint yourself with it. If you don't have a pixiv account/can't register, I'll give you my login because I only used it to look at stuff anyway. But, I digress.

Some posts would be awesome! Sims are always fun, so post away. :D

In the fanfiction department, every PreciousMetalShipper must have a love/hate (mostly Hate) relationship with the story Leaps and Bounds (http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5653145/1/Leaps_and_Bounds). As for GOOD fanfiction, I myself am still working on writing/finding that.

But yes yes yes, welcome aboard, it's nice to meet you! c:

LMAO I read Leaps and Bounds recently, and there are so so many things I hate about it, yet I kept reading it....

It makes me want to punch the author in the face and I wish she would just. end. it.
estheim
Sep. 27th, 2010 07:53 pm (UTC)
Yeah, me too. It looks so completely far off from ending and I know Gold and Silver, well, there's a looot of room for interpretation and different characterizations, but. GOD, I will go off on a tangent here I will stop...

Oh no, please, be my guest! I know that whenever this story updated I called my friend and just ranted about it.

The Characterization in this story is probably one of the things I hate most of it - especially towards the 'minor' characters like Crystal. (Oh my God, Crystal.) And I won't even touch how Out Of Character Silver is - though you are right, Character Interpretation and all that.
estheim
Sep. 27th, 2010 08:12 pm (UTC)
YEAH like Crystal, well, for one thing turning female characters into yaoi fangirls is like one of the biggest fic cliches I can't stand. I can definitely see Silver having relationship issues and trust issues and stuff but this fic takes that and multiples it by 100 like LMAO... IF SILVER IS REALLY THAT BAD HE SHOULD PROBABLY BE IN THERAPY OR SOMETHING??

Also. Why does Gold have to be fat. WHY.

My respect for her Silver became non-existent when I read about his PROBLEM WITH DRUGS. I just... I still can't over that niche, it amazes me. AND HE WAS IN PRISON? I-- I-- What? Ugh, the girls in general in this fic piss me off, and so does Green. I just-- Hnnnngh.

I don't know I guess she's trying to make her story UNIQUE or something? But Gold being SHORT and FAT doesn't... reallllyyyyy do anything for me. :I
estheim
Sep. 27th, 2010 11:52 pm (UTC)
Yeah. It was just ridiculous. And Green and Red are like... no words.

I actually recall her saying in an author's note that she didn't like fics about ~*pretty boys*~ which is why she made Gold and Silver "ugly". :'|
kaliona
Sep. 28th, 2010 02:07 am (UTC)
Yes, I liked that little excuse she has going on, "She doesn't like Pretty Boys," Hmm, Yes. :|

I won't go into depth about Green, even though I hate hate hate how he was portrayed, but I will instead say, Just Everyone.

/hijacks thread

I actually just got this far in reading it last night, and I had the same thought. :|

I really can't see Silver doing drugs. Ever.
He'd probably say something, "ONLY WEAKLINGS USE THOSE."
Except less exaggeratedly and it wouldn't sound as much like a cheesy health class video as it did when I typed that. :|a

I can see being in prison though. I mean, he did steal a Pokemon in canon. However, it's just so over the top... my Gary Stu senses are tingling. =A=;;

Thank you. (:
It's really refreshing to see that this community has so many nice people. :D Buuut, I don't actually own a pixiv account, only a dA one for art and lord knows that one is already hard to manage; but my sister has a pixiv account and I've memorised her login stuff a long time ago, so yeah~

Sims are amazing! Although I should warn you about the crack, because Gold and Silver are still kids and their parents, well, Mom for Gold and Giovanni for Silver, are very inaccurate.
(I mean, Giovanni is based of a cracky Cullen and dresses like a pimp and he's really doin' Gold's mom.)
And later I think I'll get them in sims 3 once I get my laptop. (:

And, ohmygod. Now I'm afraid of reading that fic. What does it have that hateful? D:

(It's very nice to be welcomed so well, and it's wonderful to meet you too!)

Aww, I'm glad you think so highly of us. :D
If you have a dA, the preciousmetal club sends in some nice things, so be sure to head over there, too.

I would love to see these crazy sims, actually. xD Pimp!Giovanni is right up my alley, I wonder if Silver takes after his dad.

Well, the writing isn't BAD but it's what, 37 chapters of dancing around a plot it doesn't even have. You read until the late hours of the night hoping your dedication will pay off but it doesn't, because there is no POINT to the story. It's pages upon pages upon pages of you wanting to scratch your eyes out, in short.

But, if I do manage to get my hands on something nice, I'll be sure to send it your way.

I'll see if I can post some sims screenshots once I've meddled more with them, perhaps I will once the kids are close to growing into teenagers. (:
Pimp!Giovanni is not only a pimp, as he is also an amazing dancer. ♥
Aand, I don't know about Silver being a pimp, but it seems that Gold's mom almost loves him more than her own child. D:

Oh my. I HAVE to read that!
Always looking for laughing/crack material; at least I can laugh at it. How would the world be without things like those? (:

I actually haven't read this yet. '3'
*is off to pass judgment~*

Though the lack of good Gold/Silver fanfiction really disappoints me. ;A;
I may have to try my hand at writing up something. :|a
I have no idea what, but I'll figure it out. Something short, considering how long it takes me to write things in general. =A=;;
kaliona
Sep. 27th, 2010 08:23 pm (UTC)
Pass that judgment. BD

Agh, I know. ; A ; I wish there was more. I mean, I have a few unfinished ficlets laying around but... c: we should probably push ourselves to get something done, non?

Thirding pixiv! You'll find lots of good stuff there. As for fanfiction, god there is so little for these two. :( I would give you some if I had any.

I would love if you posted the sketches and especially the sims! Sims posts are so fun.

Sep. 27th, 2010 07:37 pm (UTC)
That's too bad, they do deserve the fanfiction love. D:

Aaaand, I will post them once I've scanned them, which might take a long time, considering how lazy I am but I will eventually get to it. :P
Sims posts are little boxes of win. (:

I know a bit of good Gold/Silver fic, but I'm pretty sure almost all of it contains smut since it's from the various Pokémon kink memes. OTL Is that okay?

Oh, it's fine! All good!fic is always welcome. ♥

Aand, thank you very much! I'll check fanfiction.net once I get the time!
