I've been involved with Pokémon for years, ever since the importation of Pokémon Red way back in ... '96? Something like that. Between myself and my sister, we have every GB/GBA game, plus Pokémon Stadium. (Need to get Emerald and Stadium II and Colosseum sometime.)
Based on the 100fanfic challenge over on LJ: the origins of Shayna, a Ho-oh-morph with a shaded past, a hunted present and an uncertain future. Challenge #2.
