August 15, 2014 - Hey guys, you probably know who this is at this point. How are you guys doing?
Kelly's Journey has been surprisingly swift recently, for whatever reason. I've felt at ease writing the episodes. I actually feel like I could finish one a week if I wanted to ignore the rest of life (or most of the rest of life), but that's not really that great of an idea, now is it?
Episodes 21 and 22 have been completely written and I'm a bit less than halfway done with episode 23. Obviously not a bad thing. I kind of wish I was writing more episodes right now.
I've temporarily put the earlier episode rewrites/edits on hold, only so I could catch up to the parts in Kelly's Journey where I WANT to be. That and I feel like if I did the rewrites, I would only focus on those, and not write the newer chapters. I still plan to work on those though when I'm more caught up to my target goal of 30 episodes (come on me, I can do it).
For those who are not keeping track, the episodes that are fully written, but not yet posted are:
Episode 17 (original storyline)
Episode 18 (Lt. Surge)
Episode 19 (S.S. Anne Part 1)
Episode 20 (S.S. Anne Part 2)
Episode 21 (Island of Giant Pokémon)
Episode 22 (Beauty and the Beach)
So, there are 6 episodes fully written. This is a GREAT thing (or at least, should be). If I post one episode a month, that means I have half a year's worth of episodes. An episode a month would be nice, right? I think so! I think an episode a month too is frequent enough to keep interest (although, thank you guys SO MUCH for keeping interest, even at the rate I post them at), but spaced enough to allow enough time between episodes. Unless you guys want to binge on them.
Just like my previous update (April 23rd, oh geez), is there anything you would like to see happen in Kelly's Journey? Any ideas for FUTURE episodes? Would you like game events inserted in places that the anime failed to feature? Or was there an idea that popped in your head for the series that made you think "I want to see this"? I'm curious to know! (As long as it's future episodes.)
Thank you guys for sticking around for so long. I hope to make you guys happy with a bit more frequent posting of the series!
April 23, 2014 - Hello everybody, TrainerKelly here again! How are you all doing today? I felt like giving you guys an update on Kelly's Journey. You probably would like one, since you're in this group, huh? Maybe? Maybe not.
I completed episode 20 a few weeks ago and just completed the rewrite/edit of episode 2 today. I hope to be starting episode 21 and episode 3's rewrite/edit soon! I'm pretty excited about both of those - one's the Island of Giant Pokémon and the other one is the episode that made want to rewrite the earlier episodes.
If you are not keeping track, the new episodes that are written (but not posted) are:
Episode 17 (Original Storyline)
Episode 18 (Lt. Surge)
Episode 19 (S.S. Anne Part 1)
Episode 20 (S.S. Anne Part 2)
For Episode Rewrites/Edits, I have completed:
Just out of curiosity, does anyone have something they would like to see done in Kelly's Journey? Any sort of ideas for it, for a future episode? Was there something in the games you wish the anime had done, but hadn't? Or was there just something you thought about while reading KJ that made you think "hey, I want to see this"? Any suggestions for episodes past S.S. Anne Part 3 (Giant Pokémon) and in Kanto would be appreciated! I'm just curious on what kind of things you guys want to see. I guess what you guys don't want to see can be included too...but mostly, I want what you guys would like to see.
I hope everything is going well for all of you! I hope to have another update for you guys soon!
February 14, 2014 - Hello everybody, TrainerKelly here! I haven't updated in a LONG while, so let me do that.
First off, WELCOME NEW MEMBERS! You guys making me happy!
I think everybody who reads KelJo probably already knows that episodes 15 and 16 have been out for a while. If you didn't:
Episodes 17, 18, and most recently (and by most recently, I mean yesterday), episode 19, have all been written. I'll be going back at some point and fixing them up to post, but not right now. I'm currently aiming to have a ton of episodes so I can start posting the series once a month.
KelJo is one of my majour goals this year. I haven't put as much effort into the series as I should and have wanted to, so I'm trying to make up for that now. You can read briefly about my goals for this year here and KelJo specific ones here. I'll admit I did fail for January, but February seems to be off to a decent start...ignoring that I got sick, which delayed me for about a week.
If you're not going to read those entries, that's perfectly fine. In short, I plan on writing as many KelJo episodes as possible this year and post them up once a month next year. I don't expect to put up any new episodes this year, but if I get up to episode 29 or 30 before the end of the year, I'll consider it.
For those of you celebrating Valentine's Day, Happy V-Day to you!
Otherwise, have a great day!
June 17, 2013 - There's nothing new on the Kelly's Journey front. Just wanted to announce that Hurricane360 is currently holding a poll for best KJ soundtrack piece - hurricane360.deviantart.com/jo… - so please have a listen and vote! Thank you~!
May 3, 2013 - OVER A YEAR SINCE THE LAST UPDATE. Oops. Sorry about that, folks! TrainerKelly here. KJ (or as I'm starting to call it, KelJo) isn't dead. I've been busy with a lot of other stuff, if you've been following me on my actual account and paying attention to my journals on there.
I must direct your attention to 's WONDERFUL song for Kelly's Journey that goes a bit ahead of where the story is, but that's okay. Check out "Kelly V.S. Koga" here and send some love! Either on his dA page or on YouTube. (He's also done some more as well, including a generic techno track that works well for playing in Kelly's headphones and a Kelly V.S. Misty song (which can be heard here.)
There's been quite a few new members! So I welcome:
Thanks for joining!
March 2, 2012 - Hello again! TrainerKelly here, if that wasn't obvious at this point. I have some potentially awesome news for you people!
First thing's first though - welcome new members! We have quite a few of them, and frankly, I'm quite pleased about this!
And now - THE AWESOME ANNOUNCEMENT, OH YEAH!
I have finally finished writing episode 15! YAY! *throws confetti* I'm honestly questioning why it took me so long to write, but hey, now it's done. I just need to edit it, which I'll probably do in a day or so.
Also, I have two KJ comics - one is in between episodes 14 and 15, the other one some side thing. Expect the former sooner than later.
That's all for now! I hope you're looking forward to the next chapter!
January 7, 2012 - Happy New Year, everyone! TrainerKelly here if it wasn't obviously at this point. I have to apologize for people who have been watching me on my account for KJ and got bombarded by a strange comic instead with no new KJ episodes. Hopefully, those will come this year~
I have to welcome our new members - we've had quite a few since last time:
Welcome all of you!
And the second thing I would like to announce is there is now an Onlyinadreamshipping group! If you like the pairing for one reason or another, you may wanna join:
You can check out the Onlyinadreamshipping Shrine too if you're bored and are looking for some exclusive artwork by me.
On the final note, I'm having quite a few KJ-related comics coming up. I hope you'll like them when they do come out! (Though, I know you guys would rather have the chapters - they're coming! They're coming!)
September 4, 2011 - TrainerKelly here! First, let's welcome the newest members:
And second...I probably should say what is going on with Kelly's Journey. Usually I get three episodes out per year, but this year I'm only going to have two. DON'T WORRY THOUGH. I'm not giving up on KJ. There will be no new episodes for this year, but if things go as planned (...which they probably won't knowing me), there will be tons of episodes next year. So please don't worry!
April 26, 2011 - TrainerKelly here~ Hopefully all of you know this, but Kelly's Journey episode 14 is finally up here on dA! YAY! So, if you have a chance, please go read it!
Also, I would like to thank everyone who has joined within the past few months:
April 25, 2011 - TrainerKelly here once again! I am here to inform you that Kelly's Journey episode 14 has been written! It is currently only on the KJ website. It'll be putting it up on dA ASAP though! (You can find the episode here).
Shout out to the-dragon-childe for writing up an episode transcript for me! It cut down the time it took to write the episode and possibly some of the work!
March 2, 2011 - Hello there everyone! Long time, no update. TrainerKelly here. There's not really any updates on the KJ side of things. I've been busy with a lot of things, but I am hoping to write a chapter this month. Let's see if that happens (I'm going to doubt it...)
A few notable things are though:
- The website has had a URL change. it is now kellysjourney.trainerkelly.net. (Alternate URL is here.)
- I added a Media Wiki to my website. There is a page dedicated to KJ, which is <a href-"trainerkelly.net/writtenworks/…">here. A lot of the pages aren't up yet and are still being worked on. If anyone wants to, feel free to add the summaries pages for the other KJ episodes on the episode lists! It would be helpful and highly appreciated!
That is all. Have a nice day!
January 1st, 2011 - TrainerKelly here! Happy New Years to everyone, even if it is already January 2nd for you. It's 10:54 AM on January 1st when I'm typing this here...so yeah.
Kelly's Journey episode 13 WAS finished yesterday, but was only posted up on the website for direct download. It WILL be posted on dA, hopefully sooner than later.
I would also like to say this group has had the honour of being listed on:
Under the Pokémon fanfiction! Let's hope we get a few more fans? That'd be really cool!
Anyway...that's all for now. Next update will be about the updated chapters and whatnot. Bye!
=O Oh, that's awesome! >w< I'm so happy it inspired you! Do you plan on posting it here on dA? I'd love to rewrite it!
It's so interesting to see alternate versions of the TV show.
Yes I do plan to write it here, as well as on Fanfiction.net. OwO
Indeed. :3 Though my series isn't entirely for "alternate versions" but rather combining side-stories or undeveloped pro/antagonists to major events.
=o Oh, very awesome! I'll have to check it out when you post it!
OOO. That's so awesome! =o A lot of side stories and pro/antagonists on the show really should have been more developed (I know I plan on developing some of the more "relevant" pro/antagonists in KJ who really should have had more back story that could impact the show). I'm looking forward to reading it!
hehe! ^^ At first, I thought Kelly WAS you, but after reading your description, I understood! But I still had a feeling she might've been a Self-insert in someway. I think Kelly's cute personally, I love her long hair! And I'd love to see her in animation. 8D
The title of it is "Conal's Journey" though I might change it if I find a better and fitting title for it. I'll link you the prologue when its done.
For protagonists, I think you should add in Jimmy (As a rival, but a friendly rival) and/or Marina also as a rival but a good friend at the same time to Kelly. Plus, maybe you should bring Brendan in the Hoenn Region (As he was seen in the beginning of the 9th movie) and give him a little bit of action, (That's what I'm gonna do for "Conal's Journey") And for antagonists, I think you should bring those BIG and BAD Team Rocket guys, Attila, Hun and Professor Sebastian! (From the Raikou special) And maybe instead of a rewrite to that special, maybe it could be rewritten as a parallel story! where they try to capture Suicune instead? or maybe all 3 beasts! If all 3, then I think it should take place in a "Movie" (You know, every Pokemon season includes a movie) during the Johto league!
Here's an idea for that movie! Taking place BEFORE that movie, it all happens in the show. There are some Team Rocket agents looking for a crystal or whatever that'll help capture the 3 beasts like that crystal for Raikou, though it controls ALL powers! (fire, water, electricity, etc and even psychic energy! all the natures of Pokemon) and so after Pr. Sebastian obtains that thingy, he adds electronic devices to support and sends his duos Hun & Attila on that mission to capture the 3 beasts! Plus, normal Pokémon that get tract down by it will try to attack it with their attack energy and it'll increase more power to it! But with the 3 beasts, Team Rocket will have all the powers in the universe! I'll just leave it at that! But if you're actually gonna take this idea, then note me so I can give you all these ideas! That was my all time favorite Pokemon saga! Next to the Meloetta trilogy, cause I love how they introduced entirely new protagonists and entirely new members of Team Rocket. (Especially the characters that only appeared in one episode without any character development)
Ooo! I'll think about all that. I wasn't planning on rewriting the side stories, unless one of my fan characters were involved (I was also thinking of adding side stories in to expand on my characters, like Mistico), unless I can find some way to retell it that would make a bit more interesting than the original (or simply "correct" things that the show forgot for continuity reasons). It'd be awesome to bring in an actually evil Team Rocket team for once into the main series though.
=o That sounds awesome! I'll have to let it sit in my mind for a while, considering I'm still only in early Kanto (I finished the first St. Anne episode a few days ago). If I decide to use your ideas or some of your ideas, I'll definitely note you and give you some credit. ;] (If you have any ideas for Kanto for KJ at all, I'd love to hear them! I'm beginning to find having people contribute ideas is SUPER helpful (Hurricane360 recently helped me with planning out the KJ versions of "Beauty & the Beach", "Tentacool & Tentacruel", and "The Ghost of Maiden's Peak")! Obviously you'll get credit too.)
