It's been a while since I've written or said much, but with graduate school approaching quickly, it's time to get some things in gear.  And one of those things...

Is publishing.

I've talked about this subject in the past, but I have not had the time to really tackle it yet.  But now I am running out of time, and the only way this is going to get done is if I try and do it right now.  Unfortunately, this has proven to be a problem, as in my research I have learned that copyright laws are pretty strict...and getting permission from a company like GAME FREAK inc. to use their copyrighted material is proving to be less than possible...

Right at the moment, I still have some things to take care of, namely the fact that I will be taking part in a Japanese documentary this next week involving the paleontology work I conducted for my senior thesis.  Now, I'm not thinking that my work here will ever come up, but...well, at this point, stranger things have happened to me.

I have, however, nonetheless begun the process of putting everything together, and I have just submitted what I am listing as my 'disclaimer' page.  This is simply a list of the baseline rules of what I do and do not consider "canon" material as well as a few other notes to help ease any confusion that first-time readers might have.  It's still very much in the works, and I would be grateful for any feedback that you all might have for it.  This list will likely be key in the ultimate choice of GAME FRAK inc. to allow me to publish with their permission or not.  I would just go ahead and publish right now if I could...I already have an idea of the process I have to go through...but with a project this big, I simply can't risk the chance of being cited for copyright infringement.  That, and I really don't want to ultimately publish until my material is updated to account for the generation three remakes coming out at the end of this year.

I apologize for breaking character on this one, but I think you all understand where I'm coming from.  I will have more details soon, hopefully.  I've put this off for far too long, and I will not have my work doomed to spend its life here alone.  With all of the work I have done, I deserve better than that...and with all of the help you, my fellow deviants, have provided over the years, you deserve better than this.  I will get this done, for all of us. :)

That's it for now; I hope you all have a pleasant day. :)

Mutitus
Patrick R. Nolan
Artist | Professional | Literature

Hello; my name is Professor Wormwood, otherwise known as Mutitus.

My tale is both short and long, but I won't bore you with all the details. I originally became interested in deviantART through a chance encounter with some art that I found quite pleasing. From there, I began my journey through this marvelous place, taking on various guises and images until I finally came upon my current position, the Official Professor of Pokemon for the U.S. State of Pennsylvania.

Here, I dedicate my life to showing the world just how real Pokemon are and how fundamental they are to understanding both how the real world works and how thin the boundary between fantasy and reality truly is. I have been an active part of the Pokémon universe ever since I was a child, and it has opened my eyes to the greater laws that govern the universe and in turn where I stand as an individual in the sea of life that exists on this tiny little planet in an otherwise unexciting corner of space. I owe my incredible writing abilities and imagination to this world, and the best way I can repay my debt, as far as I figure, is to bring reality to a world where it is commonly rejected and in turn help even casual players of the series interact with their games in a way that is otherwise beyond what the creators of the series are willing to go.

Outside of here, I am a promising senior at Mercyhurst University, preparing to graduate and attend Graduate School at SUNY UB. I am a geology major with an exceptional interest in paleontology, particularly in regards to Late Silurian plants, algae and fungi. I am exceptionally skilled at mathematics and all sciences in general, though I am particularly knowledgeable in the fields of geology (hence my major), paleontology, astronomy and theoretical physics. I do not know if there is more to life than what we live through on the Earth we know and love, but knowing that ghosts are real, I can only hope that there is at least some sort of existence beyond life.

For now, this is all that needs to be said; if I feel like opening up, though, perhaps I will reveal more of my secrets to the world. Regardless, I will continue to serve my friends and colleagues as a vigilant nobleman and protector of the truth...now, and for all eternity.

Maybe you can do the factions from Metro 2033

Maybe...though that is honestly a bit outside of my specialty...

But who knows...maybe some day when I have nothing else on my agenda to do...

Aqua: Hello. I wanted to ask a question....how long do you think that chimera Pokémon live for?

Hello; it's been a while since I last heard from you. :)

If you are referring to Pokemon like Hydreigon, then you are looking at a lifespan of a couple centuries or so, maybe up to a  millennia in rare cases.  If you are thinking of a different group of Pokemon, though, you'll have to be more specific, I'm afraid.

A chimera that is made from a laboratory.

I see...well, if they are just bizarre biological experiments, I really couldn't say...but given how crude current technology is in regards to such creations, I do not see a high chance of a creature surviving for very long biologically.

Thanks for the watch. ^^
On a random side note, five dollars pays for a whole year of pokebank. It still costs money, but at least the initial download is free. ^^ (But where am I going to find a copy of black or white to "catch up" before the new game comes? )
