Much appreciated. :)

You must be logged in to donate.
You're curious, aren't you? What kind of story takes these three things and throws them together? I'll tell you the answer. It's called Lucario and the 10 Ordeals. You can find it here:

It's a Pokemon story, with mysteries to solve and problems to fix like in Scooby-Doo, but also with the concept of exploring a new world, different from what you're accustomed to see, like in Narnia.

Pokemon are a new thing to the people on this "other" world, and the ones that you will see in the story are all able to talk. Magic is a thing and so are dangerous enemies that cannot be displayed in a Pokedex. Imagine trying to look up an entry on a skeleton that's chasing you around with a spiked mace, geared up in armor and everything. You might not be able to get your Pokeball out in time (which you will not be seeing too many of, btw).

I began this story back in 2009 and the readers it did attract have some very enthusiastic feedback to give after they read the first few chapters. It's unique, it's different, and it's unconventional, maybe even foreign to some people. But doesn't every big fandom need something totally different, once in a while?


Patreon btw, can be called an online "tip cup." It's like kickstarter and functions very similarly, but it's a lot easier to manage and a lot more friendly towards the little guy, the artist, the musician, the content maker, the minecraft modder (yes, you can earn money from the pledges that your fans give you by doing Minecraft mods), and all kinds of interesting hobbyists and public servants.

You can change the amount you pledge or even stop it at any time. And you get the goodies *before* your pledges are processed, making it safer for Patrons and the people who are getting the donations.


The prologue to Lucario and the 10 Ordeals is already out in a brand new, re-written manuscript. Go check it out on the link at the top of the journal page. If you're curious and you want to read the OLD version, go to my page @…

The story is 52k words and about 30 chapters long so far, I lost track of how many there are exactly, but between 30-32. In 2 months, 10 Ordeals will be celebrating its 5th Anniversary, so stay in touch! :)

Thank you for your time!

Hello and welcome!

I'm Ryan Smith. I run a variety of online projects, ranging from games to fiction works to sound design to freelancing.

You can see what I'm currently up to by heading over to my Patreon page, found in the Website box.

Patreon is like an online "tip cup" which people can use to support their favorite artists, writers, and content makers. You can even set your own page up if you have an idea and the determination to bring it about. :)


Pokemon: Twin Souls update - We've decided on a name for the girl. Mara Sessie. :)
