I'm not crying. I'm not crying.

I don't think I have anything left to say, except thank you, for everything. And I'll be looking forward to anything you write in the future, whether it's the commentary for TQftL or far beyond that. Just thank you for this story you've told, and for all the many years we've spent with these characters.

Don't think I've ever commented before, but I've been following this fic for probably like a decade. Thank you for persevering. I can't imagine what it feels like to finally finish it. Seriously, great job. It was an amazing ride.

Reply: Thanks for reading!

Is this the end? NOOOOO!

Reply: Yup, this is the end! The story is over, so sadly there's nothing more to write here. But feel free to follow the commentary if you want to relive some of the earlier bits with me!

What a wonderful ending :D Congrats on finally seeing this story to a close, at long last. I loved getting to see how all the different characters ended up; it was very satisfying.

I particularly liked May's ending - her arc has long been the most interesting to me, and this is a really great way to wrap it up. I haven't reread the previous chapters in a while and can't remember if the stuff about her dad was mentioned sooner, but that would be a nice thing to work in earlier if you end up making any future revisions.

Also, speaking of rereading: now that it's all done, ebook versions would be super handy, if you ever get the chance ;)

For real though, congrats again on finishing. You should be very, very proud of yourself.

Reply: Maaan, I had no idea you were still reading the fic; it was a real gutpunch to see your name on that e-card. Thanks so much for following it! I'm glad you found the resolution for the characters satisfying; that's the biggest thing I wanted to accomplish here, and I'm particularly pleased you liked how May's arc ended.

May's dad has not been mentioned in the fic proper, but it was in the spin-off one-shot Spirit. I didn't expect to end up bringing it up in the fic at all, so that's why it never came up before, but then it just sort of happened here as I was editing! There was a hint in chapter 74 where Mark noticed May didn't want to call anyone, and I thought it was nice that this scene followed up on that a little, but yeah, if I'd known I was going to make a point of it, I'd have built it up more, and will do so whenever I next revise this.

I'll look into putting together an e-book version before I start the commentary!

I've been reading this story for more than a decade now, and it's hard to believe that it's finally at an end.

You've come a super long way as a writer, and I found this a satisfying end. I look forward to reading the next version.

Wow. What an amazing end to this story. I have followed it since I was in middle school, and wow. Despite all the negativity you say about this, you did an amazing job!

Reply: Thanks for reading!

Please stop me if you think I'm getting uncomfortably self-deprecating; I think my assessment that there's a lot of ridiculousness early on is pretty realistic, but I've also experienced enjoying a story only to see the author hate on it to the point of making me feel kind of crappy about it, and that's definitely not what I want. I'm still extremely fond of this fic and always will be, and I'm thrilled you enjoy it!

hi i just wanted to say that i genuinely truly appreciate that you've kept up with writing this for so long; this fic has been a huge part of my life since i was about nine years old and it inspired me to start writing my own fanfic and honestly just as a story has stuck with me in a really serious way for so long - it feels kind of weird to imagine it being over? but at the same time this conclusion absolutely feels earned and as bittersweet as it may be i'm excited to have seen it this close to the end as a now 20 year old, and i can't wait for the final chapter. thank you so much

Reply: Thanks for reading and all your kind words! I'm glad to have managed to entertain you for so long. I hope you enjoy the finale (and perhaps come back for the commentary)!

These two chapters made me cry so much and I love them. I can't even articulate my feelings right now, I'm just so happy and so emotional! Thank you, Butterfree, this was worth the wait and I'm so glad I got to read it. Mewtwo2 is now my fave character oh my GOD (Chalenor is also fantastic, what a brilliant plot twist!!). I love all these wonderfully flawed individuals!

Mew is inconsistently referred to as "he" and "she" here. Is it more than one Mew?

"Mew bounded across the grassy landscape," Doesn't Mew only move by floating?

Reply: Mew has no gender preference. Throughout the story, it's been referred to as "he", "she" and "it" by different characters - "he" has been most prominent because it's what Chaletwo uses and what Mark took up after him, but e.g. Entei and Mewtwo called it "her". Here, from Mew's point of view, the pronoun used alternates consistently between scenes.

I didn't think of "bounding" as a verb that necessarily precludes that Mew is floating - just doing so in bounds and leaps. But I could be entirely wrong about the connotations of the word; not a native speaker.

*Tears, After The Cloudy Weather plays in the background* Sure Butterfree, just throw every curveball you can think of at me and then break my heart to finish it off. I'm gonna need a day to process all this and 3 months of therapy to get over my tragic friendshipping feels…

lads good thing I started reading this fic as a fan of pokemon & happened to end it 10 years later as a fan of existential horror bc that was a PAYOFF

Congratulations, butterfree - hope you're throwing your dang hands in the air :) Can't wait til the day you can finally say you've posted the final chapter - for this version, anyway ;)

Chapter: The Final Stretch – Chapter 74: Unraveling

Kaflinn er mjög góður framan af. Vitnað í margt sem áður skeði og útskýrt. En ég botna ekkert í restinni og alls ekkert í endinum. Í fyrsta lagi, af hverju safna þau ekki restinni af hópnum saman, þegar Chaletwo segir þeim að Mew muni birtast í þessum skógi? Í öðru lagi, af hverju var Mark ekki búinn að ná í þennan bolta og endurræsa hann til að geta lokað Mew inni í honum? Í þriðja lagi, af hverju kemur þeim allt í einu á óvart að Mewtwo2 sé laus, þe. að Rick noti hann til að efla kraft sinn eða ógna, ögra, ná valdi? Í fjórða lagi, hver er Razor og hvaðan kemur hann og hvað er hann að gera þarna…

Reply: Chaletwo veit ekki að Mew muni birtast í þessum skógi, hann er bara búinn að sannfæra sjálfan sig um það (rétt nægilega mikið til að segja þeim að halda áfram og að þetta takist örugglega, en ekki nóg til að kalla allt liðið þangað). Fyrr í kaflanum sagði hann sjálfur að það væri ekkert víst að Mew kæmi aftur í skóginn; það var Mark sem datt það í hug. En Chaletwo grípur þetta svo á lofti undir lokin af því að hann er hræddur og taugaóstyrkur og þarf að sannfæra sig um að þetta takist. Endilega ekki ímynda þér hann sem rödd skynseminnar, hann er alls ekki sérklega skynsamur. :)

Venjulega eru óvirkir boltar bara óvirkir; þess vegna sagði Mark í byrjun kaflans að boltinn hjálpi þeim ekki neitt af því að hann er óvirkur. Mew Hunter er hins vegar með sérfræðiþekkingu; hann eyddi löngum tíma í að lesa sér til um pokébolta og tæknina á bakvið til að geta breytt þeim. Þetta kemur líka fram: "Don't you remember? I studied Pokéballs."

Oftast eru pokémonar inni í kúlunum sínum; þess vegna gerðu þau ráð fyrir fyrir löngu síðan að klónin sem Rick á yrðu líklega ekki vandamál. Þau vita að Rick er að leita að þeim, en gera ráð fyrir að hann sé þá gangandi um með Mewtwo^2 í kúlu og sendi hann bara út ef hann finnur þau. Þau hafa hins vegar ekki pælt sérstaklega í því þannig, Rick undanfarna kafla hefur verið allt önnur ógn, á sér plani, og þau tengdu þessa hluti aldrei saman á þann hátt að byrja að velta meðvitað fyrir sér hvort hann sendi Mewtwo^2 oft út nú þegar hann er að leita að þeim. Þau eru búin að vera að einblína á Mew, og ég hef reynt að skrifa söguna þannig að lesandanum detti það ekki heldur í hug fyrr en það gerist.

Spennandi kafli og einlægur. May er hrædd við eigin hugsanir og tilfinningar, sem getur auðveldlega orðið að þráhyggju. Það er áhugavert. Hlakka til framhaldsins

Wow, seems I made a lot of similar remarks in the last comment I made at the end of last year, and that would be because I reread the previous few chapters to get back into things, so sorry about the repetition.

Reply: Don't worry about it, haha! I really appreciate all your comments and look forward to them.
