(( I’ve been thinking and debating over rebooting this blog for a while, because I’ve been conflicted - I dislike the way I wrote a lot of older posts, and to be honest, I feel like my presence in this community on this blog is fizzling out and I need a fresh start.
Recently I started askvivillon (yeah, that’s me), and having a fresh start there I felt did me a lot of good - looking at the current state of this blog in comparison made me feel that desire to change something up even more.
However, I do already have a plan for the culmination of the plot I’m in the middle of, and while I’m dissatisfied with a lot of my past choices, I do still feel like my archive is a record of how far I’ve come and would like to keep it intact.
I’m leaning toward the conclusion that once this plot is finished, I’ll end the blog, perhaps take a break, and start a new one. One plot point I was considering for the future was that Maisie and the others had something of an interest in moving to Unova - I may or may not start a new blog there, perhaps after a time skip, with Maisie’s pokemon trying to get involved in movies or musicals.
All of the characters from this blog will still be there; however, Basil/Endive themselves may not be the central focus anymore, because there are characters that I haven’t really gotten the chance to use properly that I want to give their chance in the limelight- all of the human characters for one, and several of their other pokemon.
Everything relevant/important that happened on this blog, of course, will become backstory/history. It will be a “sequel blog’ of sorts, but one that can also stand on its own.
So yeah. With that in mind, I’m feeling a little bit better about the motivation to continue my plot, though updates will of course still be slow as I’m very limited on time by schoolwork and finals approaching sooner than I think. Just felt like giving a heads up.))
