Bio

(Awesome Gible avatar made by Ridlins)

To-do List:
1. Write a bio
2. Celebrate for finally having written a bio

Hey, my name's Gavin. If you've seen the RP(s) I'm in, you'll know that I name most of my characters that, too. I'd like to say I do it to keep track of them easier or something, but it's really because I'm so bad at coming up with names that I just use my own. I tend to RP with a specific group of people, but if I find the time I'm not opposed to joining other RPs.

I got into roleplaying a while back from a stray Google search. It lead me to a website with a fanfiction written by multiple authors. (Don't judge me too harshly; that's really what I thought it was.) Eventually, I figured out what this "roleplay" concept was. It seemed like a fun idea, so I decided to track down the people who wrote what I had just read and join their current RP. Looking back on it, I'm amazed that my app was (eventually) accepted. I'm not exaggerating when I say that my roleplay/writing skills were absolutely horrible - I was lucky to be able to write a couple sentences per post. If any of you are reading this: thanks for putting up with it back then.

After that RP and its prequel ended, the group I was with moved to this website. I joined (or tried to join) a few of their RPs, but I kept losing interest along the way. There were times where I would get an idea and decide to work on an app, but those never lasted long enough for me to get back into RPing. I stopped making apps, and started checking in on people from time to time because I wanted to keep in contact with them. I eventually realized that it was kind of rude to keep posting on an RP I wasn't in, so I decided not to keep doing that. I checked back here less and less, until I eventually forgot about it.

Until earlier this year last year. A while ago, I remembered the old RPs I had been in and decided to write one of them into a book for myself. I pulled up the old website and started stitching the posts together in my own words into a continuous story, structured more like a book than an RP. I got about a hundred posts in, and that's when I realized that I wanted to RP again. I could tell it was different now; this time I wouldn't get bored halfway through making an app and give up. So, now I'm back. And I don't plan on leaving anytime soon, so you're all stuck with me.

Yeah I think maybe is accurate. I just have a lot of schoolwork and stuff, especially with pandemic-related schedule changes happening. If I don't post by the time you're ready to post, you don't need to wait for me, I'm going to get a post in as soon as I get some time. In the meantime you can assume Shaula is still with everyone doing Shaula stuff.
Shaula




Shaula shook her head. Everything was blurry and wavy, like looking through a river. Something had hit her. Something heavy. Jason? No, not Jason. It was probably his fault, though. He swung something - Trevor! Jason had swung Trevor around straight into her, knocking her to the ground and slamming her head into the rocks. And yet, she felt fine. She could've sworn, it was like her head splashed into a million pieces and then reformed, just like that. Was that possible? Lord, today anything was possible. But that had really happened. Today, she was invincible.

Everyone else was fighting Celina, and Trevor was helping. The ghost had left Trevor. It wasn't lying - this really was just a test. Hell of a test, though, but still. Shaula left her backpack and ran to the group. The emitters hadn't worked on this ghost, so what else did she have? She could shoot water, she could throw things - Lord knows she could throw a good punch. For knocking someone out, that was probably her best bet.

After Jason attacked, Shaula ran towards Celina. It's easy. Just imagine this isn't your neighbor, and you're good. Just a big, green, slimy dragon. Nothing weird about that. Shaula stopped in front of Celina and swung her fist, aiming straight for Celina's jaw.
"...and then he just took it from me! I mean, oh my gosh! Can you believe the nerve of him?" Sally said. She glared at the Loudred.

"Uh-huh." I said. I rubbed my eyes. It was too early for this. Everyone stood outside the guildmaster's office for morning assembly, and I hadn't even had breakfast yet. I leaned over to Sally. "Who's actually in charge here?"

"Guildmaster Wally," she said. "And that's his assistant, Charlie." She pointed to a Chatot by the guildmaster's door, flapping his wings all huffed up trying to quiet everyone.

"Who's Breen, then?" I asked.

"Breen who?"

DUN DUN DUN DUNNNNN

The room went silent. Everyone looked around. And then, the guildmaster's door opened. Out strode Breen, 3-D specs sitting on his nose and a long, metal device hanging across his body by a strap around his shoulder.

DUN DUN dun dunnnnnnnnn....

He raised his arms. "Goooooooooood moooorning, Wigglytuff Guild! Are you ready to ROCK!"

Nobody said a word. Charlie looked as though Breen had just spat at Arceus himself.

"Right! Okay! Cool! Probably too early for any of this, really..." Breen said. He launched into an explanation. Guildmaster Wally was not Guildmaster Wally - Guildmaster Wally was invisible - someone was stuck in another universe - The Oncoming Storm was actually Breen Torrents - Breen had assumed control of this guild and now needed an expedition team.

Wait - what if that's why he called us to his office? I was too busy having a late dinner, and some of the others were already asleep, anyway. I just wanted to ignore it. What if he chose us because we were new and expendable?

"Right where?" Donovan whispered when Breen mentioned Guildmaster Wally was here. "I don't see him."

"I don't either," I said. I leaned over to see past a Chimecho blocking my view. "What's he leaning on?"

"Any questions?" Breen said. I raised my hand, as did everyone else in the room.
So I'm just going to time skip straight to the morning in my post, and I'll assume that for whatever reason we didn't go to Breen's office the night before. Can I assume that everyone else is there with my character at rollcall?
Lol, that's good then. Next time it seems like I'm not going to be able to post for a while, I'm going to try and give some warning beforehand.
Hey, sorry for the radio silence. Life's been really busy recently, but I'm going to try and get a post up soon.
I'm way too busy to write a post right now, so feel free to skip me this time if I don't post before you're ready.
Now that the day's almost over, I think now would be a good time for me to try and write an overview of what's happened the past few days in the rp. First I'll have to find where the day started and organize it into the characters' groups, so we'll see how far I get.
I nodded in agreement with Gren. "That's what I was thinking. This doesn't seem like a regular guild," I said. "A guild is supposed to teach you about exploring and help you along. This isn't really what I thought it'd be like."

Magma clearly still wanted to join, though. I don't know about him, but what I needed was organization and direction, and this place had neither. The entire guild went insane just a few hours ago, and I still didn't know if that was normal or not.

Yet somehow they had been organized enough to set up a room for us. On my bed, there was a bag with an explorers' badge pinned proudly to its side. This wasn't the great Scale City Explorer's Guild I'd always wanted to join, but it was something. There was an explorer's badge there for me if I wanted it. Even a map. I carefully took the map and unrolled it, feeling the rough paper in my hands and examining every little detail of its markings - this was what real explorers used. I put it back. It all looked so perfect I didn't want to touch anything else.

If I went back to Scale City, what were the chances I would actually join the guild? Maybe this is what I'd been waiting for. Nobody would notice if I was gone for a couple days - certainly not my parents. They were probably still upset with me.

"I'll try it," I said to Magma. "I'll see where it goes. Maybe I'll stay. I don't know. But I'm not making any promises, okay?"
Don't worry, my post is almost finished! Well, it pretty much is finished, I'm just giving myself some time before reading and editing so I don't go and make ten different edits after I post.

The rare quality thing sounds interesting, though. I'm gonna play the demo once I get a chance (and once I find a switch to play it on... Hmmm...) But to be honest I don't actually remember much about Gates to Infinity's story, I might have to go back and replay it sometime.
