How are you going to make Charlie be able to re/de-evolve without Raintecune and Molzapart?
(If you still plan on taking them out of the story,that is.)
Molzapart's powers would be transferred onto Mementity, but even so I don't actually need Charlie to have that ability in the first place, so that's being ditched.

I'm actually kind of planning on reconsidering the legendary roster already in the IALCOTN. Molzapart will probably be replaced with a fourth counterpart to Uxie, Mesprit and Azelf, Mementity, which would basically serve the same purpose in the plot. Rainteicune will be taken out altogether. Odds are I'll at least cut down the numbers of the color dragons and the unicorns, leaving perhaps three or four color dragons and one unicorn with some sort of a special ability that lets it change types at will or something like that.

So, um, just reading through the Bios, and I'm wondering if I'm having an accurate view of your line of thought here:

"Oh, Molzapart really sucks. It's a childish creation with basis in shameful ideas of Pokémon hybrids and legendary-Pokémon-of-slightly-more-oomph. I guess I should get rid of him. …And replace him with this uncalled for bastard lovechild of Azelf and a Luxray! I'm so smart!"

…otherwise, I do love that fic you're running.
You seem to be implying that Mementity is not an improvement over Molzapart, which is simply false. Molzapart is bad because he is silly and out of nowhere, his existence does not make any sense, and he has powers there is absolutely no remotely logical reason he ought to have. Mementity, on the other hand, fits in with the other legendary Pokémon, has a natural reason to have memory modification abilities, and integrates sensibly into the general backstory of the fic.

As for being a bastard lovechild of Azelf and a Luxray, she simply looks how a fourth member of the lake trio might sensibly look. Of course she looks like Azelf; they all look like Azelf. Luxray does not come into it anywhere and merely happens to have a similar color scheme and a spiky head that looks vaguely similar from this perspective.

Guess what! Chapter 54 isn't on page one anymore!

So yeah, the beginning was annoying to do, but now I'm past that and I'm on a roll. It's not going to be a very long chapter, so I've set myself a deadline of sorts - I'm going to try to get this chapter up on the fic's eighth birthday, the nineteenth (next Saturday). No guarantees here, but hey, I'm going to try.


On another note, I just ran into a… most interesting problem.

You see, I'm starting to kind of like Molzapart.

The idea of cutting Molzapart out of the fic has always been kind of sentimentally hard, what with nostalgia and everything, but hey, I'd steeled myself up into deciding I'm going to cut him out in the IALCOTN despite that. Fair enough. I mean, Molzapart was never that much of a character anyway, so who cares about cutting him out, right?

However, now I was writing this scene in chapter 54, and I realized Molzapart was going to participate in it, and now he's all there raging at Chaletwo and I think I'm starting to love him a little bit as a character. D: I mean, I was planning to have lots of fun with Mementity, but she wouldn't chew Chaletwo out like this and now I'm having this awful, "Aww, but it won't be the saaaame" feeling. Because Mementity is already defined as a character in my head and she's different and I can't just make her like Molzapart suddenly and argh.

Now I'm really hoping the fifth generation introduces a memory-based legendary that I could feel right about transferring Molzapart's personality onto. Because now he's actually getting scenes and being a character and I have the feeling by the time I'm done with the ILCOE I'm going to love him way too much to just erase him from existence. D:

Yeah. That was me rambling about my silly sentimental foolishness. Ignore me.
