Surskit walked along a pond. “Oh no! Danger! I sense danger!” She secreted a thick, sugary syrup from her head.
“I’m a bird, I’m a bird!” A Swellow landed near the pond. “Whoa, wait, what’s all this gross syrup? This stuff is gross. You’re gross. Stop being gross!” Swellow left.
“Phew I’m safe–”
An Ursaring ate Surskit. “Delicious!”

Drink plenty of water!
Eat plenty of iron!
Grow a strong body!
That’s the way of Lairon!
LA Iron! Los Angeles Iron!

“Woo! Woo! Woo woo!”
The other Woobat stared at the first one. “This isn’t how you woo somebody.”
“It’s all I know. Woo woo! Woo!”

Update

I’ve gone back and undone the Corbel font recently. It makes more sense to just remove the formatting when I post chapters, I guess. Someday if I upgrade my WordPress plan I might CSS up the site to be all in Corbel but not today.

This also means sometimes chapters might have weird formatting issues. Whaddya gonna do, it’s WordPress, I guess.

Also I’ve changed a bit of stuff, removed the quotes section of the menu (I might bring it back under the About heading someday) and changed the Blaargablog to just an Update section, since all I really use this for is updates on stuff like Odemon or novels. I rarely have premedicated non-fiction posts; the last one was some sort of essay-like thing on Waluigi back in July. I only ever come up with stuff on the fly and post it on Mastodon or Twitter, and on occasion that ends up being long enough that it would have worked as a blog post but I’d already put it all up on social media instead. I mean, I guess I could go ahead and embed all the posts in here, but I’d rather just let this website focus on the CCC instead of my inane ramblings. So that’s all you’ll really see here now, Odemon, new chapters or other updates, and maybe even that Pokemon comic I started doing a couple years ago and slowed down tremendously. Just been too busy for it, really.

Oh, and updates about the website itself, like this.

I says, Hey, you, get off of my gas!
Hey, you, get off of my gas!
Hey, you, get off of my gas!
Don’t wheeze around ’cause three’s a crowd.

A Roserade by any other name doesn’t exist, it’s called Roserade in every language. Well, except Korean and Chinese, but those are still just transliterations of Roserade.

“Oh geeze, oh geeze.” Yanma repeatedly hit the refresh button on his computer. “I don’t like these results. No, wait they’re good! No, wait, it’s getting worse! I can’t handle this election!”
He looked at Slowbro, who stood staring at the computer the same way he would stare at a brick wall.
“How are you so calm all the time?” Yanma asked.
“Huh? Oh. The drugs help.”
Yanma shook his head. “Drugs? Wait, what drugs?”
The Shellder on Slowbro’s tail bit down.
“Ah yeah, that’s the stuff,” Slowbro said.

Ultima Moon held up the Pokeball. “All right! I caught a Crawdaunt!”
“Who are you talking to?” Rotomdex asked.
“You.” She called out Crawdaunt. “Start recording its information.”
“Crawdaunt! The Rogue Pokemon. Its pincers often fall off. Unlike with Crawbrawler or Clauncher, the meat in its claws is utterly nasty and stinking.”
“Wait, how do you know that?” Ultima asked.
Rotomdex floated behind a bush and spat something out. “I dunno. Just do.”
“Wait, did you–” Ultima looked at Crawdaunt, who had one claw missing. It proceeded to smash Rotomdex with its remaining claw.

New Short Story! Liquid Melancholy

It’s time for a scaaaary story and–what? Halloween is over? Oh, so it is. Well, it’s not actually scary. Unless you count depression and loneliness to be scary. So… it’s scary.

Liquid Melancholy is a return to some old frenemies and wait that’s how you spell frenemy? I mean, it’s in spellchecker and that’s how you spell it?? But friend has an I before E except after C and oh never mind.

Liquid Melancholy heads back to Mintop to see how Conrad the Conqueror is doing. He has plans, but who cares about him we’re focusing on the magma monster here! Nobody ever visits the magma monster, and that has made Cagnorm lonely. They want a friend. Will they find it? To what lengths will they go to find one? That’s what this story looks at. Hope you like it!
