Book of Notes
I literally just made an account last night and decided to poke around in the forums on this fine Saturday morning, so here we are. I haven't even finished the site's tutorial yet, but a journal seems like a useful thing to have. I'm mostly going to use this for keeping track of stuff related to this site. On the off chance any of y'all want to see me talk about other things, you can follow me on Twitter (@EmeraldSands315) or Tumblr (respectful-ramblings). Editing to add: I also have a journal in the mature forums where I post the personal stuff. People seem to start these things off with info about themselves (based on a cursory look at some other journals), so we're going to do that. Name: Andrew/Drew Gender/pronouns: Transmasc; he/him Orientation: Gray-ace/biromantic Personality types: ISTJ-T, 6w5, melancholic (but let's be real here, the only personality test that really matters is the PMD one--I'm a Charmander.) Zodiac sign: Taurus-Gemini sun,
May 20thSagittarius moon, Aquarius rising Favorite animal: Cats and horses Favorite Pokemon: Roselia Favorite type: Grass Other interests: (Feel free to message me about these things--I love talking about my favorite things when I have the energy.) -Writing--I have accounts on AO3 (EmeraldSands) and FFNet (EmeraldSands315). Some of my works (and comment sections) contain swear words though, so be aware of that if you look them up. (Also, I take prompts sometimes.) -Whump/sickfic -Fullmetal Alchemist--I haven't had the chance to read the manga yet, but I've seen both anime series multiple times, both subbed and dubbed. -Musicals/theatre -Miraculous Ladybug--I'm all caught up, so no worries about spoilers! -Animal Crossing And as far as Pokemon-related stuff goes, I'm very much a fan of the games and the anime (though I haven't been caught up with the anime since DP and probably never will be), and I have so many feelings. And also ships--my favorite animeverse ship is RespectShipping (Drew/Ash) and my favorite gameverse ship is NamelessShipping (Red/Blue
the boy). I think that about covers it.

Okay, that should be enough. Anyway, I finished the tutorial and bought a new field. It's a Grass-type one and it's also very pretty. I put my newly hatched Budew in it. Also, there is so much going on here? It's going to take a while for me to figure everything out. This site is cool though. I don't have anywhere to be today (and can't really go anywhere because where I live, a lot of roads are currently flooded) so I guess I'll just be trying to figure this site out. There's a guide section, so that should be helpful. EDIT: I discovered upon looking at the Wiki that Budew's happiness won't go up in a Grass-type field, so I bought a Poison-type field for her to chill in instead. Also, my starter evolved! He's a big boy now!
I had forgotten that petsite culture involved being super kind and generous to newcomers. I was not emotionally prepared for any of this. If any of you are reading this, let me just say I cannot thank you enough. Also, 10k interactions over a single weekend for that event seemed really daunting, but I'm already done. My wrist is sore, but I'll live. I think I've made a lot of progress in the single day I've been here so far. I've hatched a fair amount of eggs and even evolved a few Pokemon. My boy Herb the Grovyle is already close to evolving a second time; they grow up so fast. I'm literally so moved by how nice some of the people on here have been. I hope I manage to stick around long enough to pay it forward.
And people being extremely nice to me continues. I appreciate y'all so much. Herb is now a Sceptile! I'm proud of him. I'm starting to get a little short on field space, so I'm going to buy some more fields and attempt to organize things better. I've looked at a lot of people's fields at this point, so I think I have an idea of how I want to organize mine. Also, my Budew evolved. So counting the Roselia I hatched a little while ago and the one a lovely person sent me, we're building up a nice little squad here. I've been sending my Pokemon on scour missions to the forest area (because it seems like that's the place to find big mushrooms and I want to see how far I can get into this event) and it turns out that's my Pelipper's preferred area. Maybe she'll have some luck. I've gotten two boxes from scouring, one of which contained 39 gold and the other of which contained a berry. Still having a great time here.
