See, right there? Complacency will get you every time. Get a little too comfortable and BAM! The secret, like all secrets, is trying to get noticed. It wants to be found. Although, honestly, I don’t think everyone finding out would really be much of a catastrophe. That said, there’s nothing wrong with playing it safe, and in a situation like this it only really seems silliest in hindsight. Of course even if you suspect a relationship is forming between friends, to the point of it nearly being blatant, the moment of actual confirmation is always sort of special. I have to say I particularly like Jo’s response to officially finding out.
I’ve been playing a little more Pokémon X. I was actually getting kind of sick of the start of the game at one point, and nearly put it aside again. I even considered the possibility that I might just be getting sick of Pokémon for good… but then I got an interesting monster over wonder trade and was back in. It’s a ghost sword. I really love ghost pokemon and a self swinging sword was the exact right thing to come to me at that moment. On top of that I had it in my party at a very low level when a trainer accosted me with her two Lucario. They didn’t have and moves that could damage ghost types. So, after wiping my team except for this sword ghost, the damn thing let me beat them into submission without ever taking damage to itself. Thank goodness the trainer didn’t have potions though. I had to wear them down with tackle for round upon round before they fainted. Still, it was totally epic and made me want to learn more about this steel/ghost type. Which is apparently weak to ground.
My team is, unfortunately, fighting heavy. I’m probably going to have to get rid of my panda thing and replace it with a psychic. Which sucks because Gollet are common in this game and I totally love them. Ideally I’d like to get a Ralts, preferably female, to fill the spot, but I haven’t encountered any so far. Guess we’ll see.
I only play 30 minutes or so at a time.
This morning I couldn’t sleep so I got up and sat on the floor, in the dark, for a bit. Eventually I decided to play the Wii until I had to get up. I settled on Mario Galaxy, since I never completed the Luigi stars. Having been away from it for so long I was reminded why I played it so obsessively, and its sequel. It’s just a fantastic game. The kind that just makes you happy to be experiencing. Mario Sunshine was like that for me too. (Although I could never get all the stars in that one.)
Animal Crossing is a total ghost world still. If any of you pick it up, or are still playing, I have a bunch of cool stuff to trade. Extra mush series things, exclusive carpets and wallpapers… Lets cross some animals here.
Thomas- 3rd row, panel 2— WANT :D
You’re an excellent artist- thank you!
You’re too kind. XD
you misspelled Carol when Jo popped out in the 5th panel
Haha! Ninjoed. Nice.
That’s basically my reaction to this page. I’m not paying attention to any of the feels. Just the word ‘ninjoed.’
Ah, glad I was able to catch up on this again. Hey, mate remember me? It’s Scythe Massakur. I gave you the ‘comment’ for Carol’s next 10 second test?
I might have missed that comment. I feel like I would remember that username.
It was on Drunk Duck
This is the best way for her to find out :D
I was wondering how long it would take her to figure it out…
All that’s left is Mike, John, Wes, Ed, Jess and Reggie.
You can find ralts back on route 4, on the way to lumiose city. They’re rare though, only in one of the colours of flowers there
I have a female raltz if u wanna email me ur friend code :) it’s lvl 1 though.
This is the first time I’ve commented here, A friend told me I reminded him of a character named Brooksie from a web comic he read. So i thought I’d see what it was about, and then I never stopped reading. I really like Brooksie, but I’m more tall like Nina.They are my two favorite characters, though I really love them all. Sorry for rambling.
Great story, I look forward to every update.
You’re better off than I am, Crave. I got stuck on the beach, and I’m not sure what to do. Then I started playing Shantae instead of Pokemon. I will come back to it later, but it’s a very busy game compared to what I remember. Especially with the Pokémon Amie thing.
I don’t like playing a new game, and having to run to a FAQ or the like so early on. I’ve quit several games because of this. It’s dubious that I’ll get back to Pokémon, especially since I’m playing Etrian Odyssey IV right now when I’m not playing ACNL. I beat Shantae recently. (Game Boy Color Virtual Console version.)
I’m so sorry about this post. It was past midnight. The comment gremlins definitely made a showing.
Also presuming u can see the email the comment thing asks for >//< I'll just post mine here, all add requests are welcome, happy to meet more Pokemon fans.
Added you. My friend code is 1177-7659-8265
3909-7997-3526 is my code. I added you both if you want to add me.
Mine is 3866-8808-2031
I’m going to jump on this add-wagon, too.
Oh for the love of cheese dip…
I’m way too quick with that “Post Comment” button these days. Restraint!
I have added all of you.
Love the comic as always! I especially enjoy the third panel.
Oh, noes! Now Brooksie knows and she’s gonna… keep it close to her heart and only threats of beatings and public speaking will get it out of her. I’m pretty confident Carol and Thomas’ secret is safe with Ninjo.
I don’t think even Big Mike would care much, and if he did, I doubt he would act on the information. The biggest threats are Reggie, with his Auntie a wheel at Corporate, and
WeaselWesley, just because he dislikes Carol.
Another concern is Dawnstance, who might spy on Thomas’ extra-curricular activities and use the information to spite him and smite him.
As someone who’s played through ALL of Pokemon Y, and now i’m starting down victory road on X…. that sword IS my team. although on Y that sword is now a sword and shield combo that stance changes to match if he’s attacking or defending. This after evolving to a dual blade sword (somewhere in the lv. 30ish range if i remember) which is where the sword on my X version is right now.
It takes a dusk stone to go from dual blade -> sword/shield, which you can find in Terminus Cave, which you will come across between gyms 7 and 8, the stone is on the bottom floor available at that time. You can also get another Dusk Stone after you beat the elite 4+champion, from the ex-team flare member in the town near the poke-ball factory. Once you evolve it to the sword/shield, make sure to go to the move-relearner, and have it re-learn King’s Shield (if it’s available to re-learn, otherwise it will learn it via level up eventually, once it is the sword/shield). King’s Shield allows the pokemon to form change back to defense form if it’s changed to attack form – it comes into battle in defense form automatically and then when you attack, it form changes to attack mode. It is, IMO, the best new pokemon, short of the MegaEvo Mewtwo, Y version.
I’ll happily exchange friend codes, if you’d like, but i’m not posting it here.
Sorry for double post, but forgot to mention, if you want another sword, you can catch wild ones outside Parfum Palace, in the tall grass you can get to on the way back (where you can go through on the way back, after getting the pokeflute to wake snorelax.
3909-7997-3526 you can mail me your code, message me on deviantart, or whatever works for you.
You Sir/Ma’am (I don’t have any idea) are one of the greatest writers/illustrators I’ve found on the web. I’ve been sticked to this story for four days now and I can’t wait to see more. Never thought I’d get so amazed like this. This is great, you’re great, and you surely must be a delight to have around. Fudging great piece of freaking art!
Well thanks for the kind words. I appreciate them and you taking the time to give it a try.
Been following the comic for a while and I have to say the art on these last few pages looks amazing. Especially this page, something about it looks so clean and the characters just pop. I’ve always loved your art style, I can’t quite put my finger on what it is but it makes your characters feel so real, and you draw their expressions so well. I always enjoy seeing artists evolve over time and just want to say thanks for the experience!
I’ve been reading for a while but this is my first time posting. I like where the story is going. :D
Also ralts are on Route 4 the are kinda rare though. my friend had a fit when i found him a female one. False swipe helps though. here is my friend code I’ll see if I can help 2921-9412-6000
Tsundere Carol. :)
Panel 3 Carol.
So cute the way Carol is embarrassed and playing with her hair! This whole page is adorable beyond adorable.
