Pokémon Fanfiction by Philippa Gissing

"Quiet in the library!" Just kidding; hope your music player of choice is blaring your favourite genre whilst you sink your teeth into these babies; like a glass of fine wine accompanying dinner.

The Phantom Child

A sequel to Mewtwo Returns in which Mewtwo struggles to find the truth about the last piece of the puzzle; his missing memories. This is my love letter to the character and his saga in both Japanese and English: a personal tribute in prose form spanning two languages and differing translations, inspired by a radio drama, Mewtwo Strikes Back, Mewtwo Returns and most importantly The Uncut Story of Mewtwo's Origin. Completed in 2013.

"Was everything before... just a dream?" "Who am I? What is my true reason for being?" "Your knowledge of Pokémon physiology proved useful to my plan." "You humans are a dangerous species." "Mew. So, finally we meet." "I sense others near me..." "But I remember something, someone..."

The Game of Time

A time-travelling tale following on from the events of The Phantom Child. If Phantom was my love letter to Mewtwo, this one is my love letter to a whole bundle of things: time travel stories, Celebi, legendaries in general, all the oddities and differences that crop up when the Pokémon games and anime are compared, Pokémon mythology, glitches... and of course clones. See if you can spot all the references to pre-existing material in amongst the timey-wimey brain-breaking tomfoolery! Completed in 2015.

Cedar's Journey

What happens when I try my hand at polishing a tu- ah, shall we say... when I take an ancient yet personally nostalgic badly written story about a Mary Sue Original Trainer (Do Not Steal) and see what happens when I rewrite the entirety of it? Likely to contain angst, awkward timecuts and people with Poképowers. Titles subject to change. Who is Cedar? I guess we're all going to find out eventually!
