Bio

Hello everyone. I'm Dutch, a mother of a 6-year old boy and I love both rp-ing and writing. Since May 2020 I'm one of the contests mods.

I started with writing Dutch stories in 2002, I was already 19 at that time. I joined a writing competition and that got me started. Soon I started to write down all the stories my over-active imagination came up with. I had my first forum rp experience in 2003 on a Dutch fantasy forum. While I continued to write, I stopped rp-ing when the particular rp and forum slowly died. In 2011 my love for rp's rekindled when I joined a site with a forum and I started to RP solely in English since that is the language of the site. This is also when I wrote my first story in English.

I've got a few 1x1 rp's going on this site and a couple more an another site. I've always been a fan of writing competitions and I joined a lot several of the ones that were hosted on this website. Now I get to host them myself and really enjoy that too.

I have a bachelor degree in nutrition and dietetics and I have worked as a dietitian / kitchen administrator in a nursing home until I decided to quit to become a full-time mother + writer.

When you come here to check if I'm online, know that even when I show as online I might not be able to respond to RP's. I open this site so that when I have time I can spend some time here, but I don't always end up with the time to do so.

"He already replaced her," Michael said. He noticed Niccia's hand but he didn't like it she stood in front of him. Movement caught his eyes; Gavin rushed to the scene, and so did Frosiien and Andy. Other legendary Pokémon either shot curious glances in their direction, or hadn't noticed at all.
He looked back to Eros and Lytse, the latter actually standing in front of Eros.

Andy followed as Frosiien darted away, pulling him along. He didn't need long to assess the situation and he brought his fingers to his mouth. After a short whistle he gently pulled his arm free, because he didn't need Frosiien to hurry to his nephew at this point. If both Gavin and Frosiien foresaw trouble, he'd believe it.

When Andy whistled, both Bear and Benny looked up.
"Good fight, gotta go," Bear said and he jumped down the platform when Merlin passed it. The Noctowl grabbed his fur and assured a soft landing for the Primeape.
Kim also joined them and the four of them went to Andy to see what the problem was.

While Mindy saw Andy hurrying to Michael, she wasn't sure what was going on, nor did she feel she could make a difference there.
"When I ran into Michael and Niccia in Goldenrod," she said as she watched them, "I was actually on my way to the ferries in Vermillion city... I'm on my way home. I'd love to travel with them further, but I'll have to call my parents first." She smiled as she faced Manderva. "But I'll definitely visit your lakes when I can, I'd love to see them."

Lily did as her mother said and stayed quiet. With wide open eyes she looked around.
When Ra heard his wife he rose with Tarian in his arms and looked around to locate her. When he did, he walked towards her, making sure their son could resume his slumber.
As soon as he reached Luna and Lily his eyes went over both to see if everything was okay. "Problems?" he asked.
It looked like Sara was more relaxed now. Benjamin leaned back in his chair and stretched his arms and legs. "If you're done, let's go for a walk," he said as someone of the staff passed their table. It would probably be considered good he was socializing with someone other than Ray. Not that he would stop hanging out with her, but they had mentioned it was best for him to stop talking to her, so it was probably a good thing if he would pretend he was okay with Ray not being there.

But he was worried about her; she was back in isolation. And she seemed to believe something had happened to Ari and had blamed it on Dia. Hopefully Ray was okay; at the first opportunity he'd go to her.
Lytse examined Eros for a moment. Offspring of a legendary? Well, he wasn't the only one here of course. "It's nice to meet you," he squeaked. "Have you just arrived? I hadn't seen you around yet."

As his Pokémon was talking to Eros, Michael put his arm around Niccia when she rested her head against his shoulder. This was a pleasant place to be; it was filled with happiness as Pokémon who hadn't seen each other in a long time were able to get together. He noticed a large Bouffant came straight towards them; there was something about the gait that gave it a determined look. Michael turned a bit so he could face the large Bouffant directly.

Bear crossed his arms and dug his heels into the ground as Carrish readied the Shadow Ball, fully intending to block the attack. It would still do damage, of course, but he knew he was tough enough to handle it. And then he would show that Carrish an awesome move.
When it hit he got pushed back a little, but he managed to stop and grinned. Then he pulled back a fist that glowed purple, and he jumped forward to hit her with Punishment.

The KAbutops that watched over Sea approached the water and glanced at her Legendary first, but when she received a nod she entered the pool and was happy just to sit in it and watch the others swim around.

Him. Mindy was certain that was Darkrai, after having heard about how evil that legendary Pokémon was from Michael it had to be the one they were talking about, but she didn't want to say the name. At least she wouldn't have to face Darkrai, not here. But... if she'd stay with Michael and Niccia she might...
"I would love to see where you live one day," she stated.

Nathan nodded as he looked at the human accompanying Niccia; he had his arm around her and from what he had observed from a distance he seemed to be decent. He narrowed his eyes somewhat when he noticed Lecrero sent his guardian to Michael and Niccia. For what reason?

Andy grinned at the story. "I may need to get your guardians version of this story too," he said, but then he paused as he scanned the gathered human-shaped legendary Pokémon. "I'm not sure which one is Ho-oh, but Merlin reminded me that's one Pokémon I need to talk with before this party is over."

RPGC #32 – The voice within


Sometimes it's our conscience that speaks to us, letting us know it's better not to eat a second slice of that delicious cake, or that stealing is bad. Sometimes, our inner demons try to make us do something while our inner angels will remind us about what is right.
Sometimes we don't know where the voice comes from.

Write a story about someone who has an inner voice.

I was looking up moves for primeape on bulbapedia: "This Pokémon is unavailable within Generation VIII."

How can that game be good if it doesn't have the awesomeness of a primeape in it? :P

Edit:
Hahaha, Stomping Tantrum. That's a move for Bear XD
TDAC #4 - Purple







by @Stormflyx
That concludes this round of the art contest. With 7 votes the well-deserved winner is the purple jellyfish.

There were two entries who did the challenge, and because of the quality of the drawing and the subtle use of the challenge, the entry purple will also receive the staff pick this round.

Congratulations! The drawing will be added to our museum.
Yeah, I wouldn't feel quite like myself if that would happen to me as well XD
Lily nodded to the numbers; stags would be difficult, but she'd see what she could do about it. "Wouldn't want you to hunt these ladies," she said with a small smile. When Gaia looked at Steph, she looked as well and noticed the colour changes of Steph's horns, the blush and the looking away, then she glanced at Gaia for a moment. Interesting.
Did she have a rival now?

"Anyhow, I'll leave you three to yourself. There's a kid too, by the way." Admittedly, she had almost forgot about him herself, but he was just so uninteresting. "Be kind to him, okay? And make sure he's fed."

With that, she left the common area.




The vampires were dealt with easily and Ethan received praise from agent Morrison. The vampires had turned to dust, but why did he still feel like he was being watched? Ethan glanced around, trying to peer into the shadows.

Agant Morrison seemed to notice and took an infrared camera from the backpack. It couldn't be used to hunt the cold vampires, but it was perfect for detecting warm-blooded creatures lurking in the shadows. He gave it to Ethan.

With the camera, Ethan circled around to check the surroundings.




Blissfully unaware of being watched, Benjamin talked to Mike until the movie started and then sat in silence in the darkness to enjoy what was being shown on the screen. His mind travelled to Ethan and Steph a few times, worrying about their safety, but the movie was a decent diversion and kept him entertained well enough.
In June we'll have a new RPGC!
