I know there will be no continue, but, why do you 'always' make an open end?
I wouldn't call the end of The Fall of a Leader particularly open, either, since both Stormblade and Shadowdart's storylines have been resolved; while we don't know what happens to the swarm, that's something that is to be found out in the future of The Quest for the Legends. The Quest for the Legends' end is very definitive and not open in the least, but of course it will be a while before we get there.

P.S. why, and how, did Stormblade bring nightmare, and HOW did he find her?
…didn't you read the chapter where he found her? o_O I think it's the second chapter in part VII.

Stormblade: It has been better, I suppose. They're all dueling to choose a new Leader now. Nightmare is still with the swarm, though she only really hangs out with me. I miss him a little, but I suppose I'm glad he escaped from what he had become.

Stormblade: What is there to tell that she doesn't already know? I already told her he followed her. Apparently she met him at that human tournament she told me about.

Nightmare: There is no pride in being a Scizor. I can tell that I repulse them; they still avert their eyes from my body, even though they've gotten used to my presence. I don't duel. I usually hunt with the one you call Stormblade and have been building up my own hunting skills anew, but it will never be like being a Scizor.

First after I'd evolved… I was horrified. I'd heard about Scizor, how Scyther would be caught by humans and evolved. I wanted to commit suicide to escape from it, but I couldn't do it without scythes. At first I just refused to fight for him, hoping the other Pokémon might kill me, but then the human sent me out to talk to me sometime, I explained about being a Scizor and he said he was sorry. That was when I began to accept it and regain some sense of purpose.

My trainer left Ouen for other regions for a while shortly after capturing me to compete in various leagues there, but then eventually returned to Ouen to make a second attempt at the Ouen League. We had a battle then which… well, didn't go too well, and after trying to go on for a while, he decided to give up training for good and release all of us. He asked where I'd want to be let go, but I said I didn't care. So he just let me go there.

Nightmare: …I don't remember anymore. It has been so long since then.

I participated, but it didn't go badly until after I was out. I only heard about it afterwards.

Charizard: Well, it was just battling - I couldn't exactly start holding a grudge for that.

Mark: Huh? Feelings? You mean… like romantic…? o_O I mean, I guess she's okay, but I'm not into romance and all that stuff. It's kind of weird and creepy.

Scyther to Shinyletal: Well, we don't give names to humans. Humans have their own names, so if a generic name like 'Trainer' doesn't suffice, we try to replicate the meaning of the name - I would just use the word 'mark' as a name, like I do for Rob.

Nightmare to SandStormBuisle: It was during the League.

As twiggylover pointed out, puredragon222's question was asked just a page or two ago.

Chaletwo to SilverLatios47: What do you mean? It has happened twice, although I think the time with the Manectric it was Alan who asked. That hardly sets a trend. I don't know what was up with Suicune, but the Manectric's body was just too damaged.

Resurrection is impossible more often than you'd think. Simple damage can be repaired by speeding up and helping the normal healing process along, but if you've got crushed bones or other irreversibly destroyed tissues, you can't repair it just like that, and recombining the soul with the body in that state would only lead to it dying painfully again.

Mark to hellfirehoundoom: Um, well, I'd still like a Vulpix. Do the Pokémon I actually have count? If so, I always wanted a Charizard as a kid. Growlithe too, really - I like a lot of Fire-types. Pidgeot too - I think they're beautiful and I like birds. And Taillow.

May to hellfirehoundoom: Well. I've got Skarmory and Tyranitar; that's two I really like. Flygon too, and Mutark though now that I've actually used her I'm a little disappointed. Outside of that, there's Garchomp, Salamence, Weavile, maybe Absol.

Ash to hellfirehoundoom: He's great. Been sort of bored since I stopped serious training, though; I try to take him on vacations so we can spend some time traveling together like the old days and fight a few battles.

Dragonite to hellfirehoundoom: Well, we were brought up in a sort of natural park with something of a population of Dratini, Dragonair and Dragonite. There were humans always sort of watching over us and checking on us regularly. When we were old enough they started to talk to us about whether we'd like to stay there or be released, and whether we'd like to be released near a human-populated area or not.

Tyranitar to hellfirehoundoom: …

Scyther to twiggylover: Annoyed, mostly. He decided to antagonize me for no good reason and then wouldn't leave me alone.

Stormblade to twiggylover: I have a new friend in Nightmare, but she's not quite the same. I miss Razor and Shadowdart sometimes, but mostly it's different. Really, things have changed many times - first when Razor left, then when I met Pearl, then when she died, then when Shadowdart died… This is just another change.

Nightmare to twiggylover: It was horrible. I had no idea how to use the pincers. I kept trying to use them the way I would use my scythes and failing miserably.

He was attacked a while ago, yes. It was some Sneasel, apparently.

Nightmare: Donphan and Flareon told me there was a Scyther, and the others said he was fine before that point. I know he is afraid of Scyther, but this seems extreme. I suspect something must have upset him particularly this time, but I don't know what.

You're not asking about anything; you're trying to make them participate in a joke so that they will ask a question. Either they play along, in which case the answer is predetermined and there is no need for me to waste my time typing it up, or they don't, in which case it would just be a reaction. You're not asking anything that allows them to properly answer it in character.

Michael's Flareon: I couldn't believe it… I'm still wondering why he did it. But it was impossible to change his mind. He really seemed to have come to hate being a trainer after the Ouen League.

Nightmare: How do you think it feels?

Stormblade was asked practically this exact same question a couple of pages back.

Nightmare: I don't know. Depends on how it would happen.

May is feeling too grumpy to respond to this, but as I said, you can't really dump water or whatever on the characters.

Razor: I would have enjoyed it, I suppose - that's why I did it. I wasn't thinking straight.

Nightmare: He was still a Scyther; he still had his speed and scythes. Losing to him as a Scizor meant nothing.

Sorry for the downtime. To make up for it, you get two new Scyther spin-off bios, Nightmare's and Stalker's. Of course, Nightmare's is half about Razor and Stalker's is half about Shadowdart, but shush.

Yes, I know I'm not doing it in the correct order, too. I've just been itching to write Stalker's bio for a while.

Chaletwo: Well, of course I'm not hanging around in Mark's head forever. I'll trust the kids to not go blabbing to everyone what we were doing.

Sparky: Oh, we're wonderful. :3 There's so much more business for both of us and more people to meet - townsfolk we used to know years ago have returned, too.

We haven't done anything about the name yet - it's been such a short time, after all - but a change is probably in order.

Nightmare: For now, I'm staying. The new Leader will be determined in a series of duels as traditional when the Leader dies outside of a duel.

Nightmare: Without scythes, how do you hunt? Do you clobber the poor Pokemon over the head with your pincers?

Also for Nightmare, with evolution many Pokemon find that their personality develops further, sometimes changing drastically, in the case of Ash's Charmeleon, and sometimes becoming wiser and more mature, in the case of Mark's Charizard. As Scizor is not a natural evolution, was their any sort of noticeable change in your personality/way of thinking? If so, what was it?
Nightmare: I'm still experimenting, but yes, that seems to work best out of what I've tried.

Radical changes with evolution happen mostly for Pokémon who evolve when they're young. I don't feel changed, save for the trauma of having turned into one of them.
