can you make polaryu,thunderyu,volcaryu and chaletwo sprites?(that is if chaletwo has a spritable body)

Reply: There are already Thunderyu, Volcaryu and Polaryu sprites under Fic Art on the menu (the images decorating the styles on the minipage are basically blown-up versions of them), and Chaletwo looks exactly like Mewtwo, so I don't really see what the point of making a special sprite of him would be.

You made me cry… You're excellent at writing, and I look forward to any further works that you do in earnest. Thanks for giving me something to think about for a few hours.

I wonder, is Mark's artistically-inclined-ness going to be removed or toned down in any way in future rewrites because of its general irrelevance(at least from my point-of-view)?

Reply: I don't see any reason to. It doesn't exactly take up massive amounts of space or get in the way of the story, and characters having a sense that there's something they do and care about other than what's directly relevant to the plot of the story makes them feel a bit more whole, to me.

At first I was skeptical about reading this series, but this is probably one of the best things I have ever read, the best fanfic I have ever read, and T-1st for the best Pokémon story I have ever read. (Pokémon Adventures) Thank you for providing this great story, and I look forward to reading the rest of it! (the reason I left the comment on this chapter and not the others was that my favorite Pokémon, Dialga, was on the spam verification)

Chapter: Chapter 61: Mewtwo

Ja, hérna. Þetta var flókinn kafli.
Alan er aftur með þeim, ég var búin að gleyma því. Svo er tala um bræður Raudra og Puragon og Dragoreen. Voru þær þrjár systur? Svo kemur eitthvað fram um að líkami Mewtwos sem sá sami og líkami Chaletwos? Mew er ýmist karlkyns, kvenkyns eða hvorugkyns. Svo máttu rifja upp þetta með Destroyer og fyrra stríðið. Og svo er talað um að Chalenor hafi dáið í fyrra stríðinu, en samt gat hann farið fram í tímann? Og það er talað um að Chalenor muni koma til að ná í Mewtwo, og fara með hann aftur í tímann, og að þá deyi Mewtwo? Ég bara botna ekkert í þessu. Ertu til í að útskýra þetta allt fyrir mér?

Reply: Þetta eru allt mikilvægir hlutir sem hefur verið talað um mörgum sinnum í sögunni. Já, þær eru þrjár systur og eiga þrjá bræður; það var talað um það heillengi í þarsíðasta kafla (sem var líka þegar Alan kom aftur). Chaletwo lítur út nákvæmlega eins og Mewtwo, sem hann útskýrði upphaflega samkvæmt því sem Mew sagði honum: fyrir síðasta stríð (þegar Chalenor var enn á lífi) fór Chalenor fram í tímann og tók Mewtwo með til baka, þannig að Mewtwo dó í því stríði, og eftir að Mew vaknaði notaði hann líkama Mewtwo til að búa til Chaletwo (í þeirri von að endurlífga Chalenor). Þessi útskýring gengur hins vegar ekki alveg upp vegna þess að samkvæmt Chaletwo virka tímaferðalög þannig að það þarf orku til að halda einhverjum á tíma sem er ekki þeirra eigin, og þegar Chalenor missti krafta sína hefði Mewtwo átt að færast sjálfkrafa aftur á sinn eigin tíma. Kenning Chaletwo um hvernig það gat staðist var að einhver annar kraftur hefði haldið Mewtwo í fortíðinni.

Hér kemur Mark með aðra kenningu, sem er að Mewtwo sjálfur hafi aldrei farið aftur í tímann, heldur aðeins afrit af líkama hans. Ef það er hins vegar rangt, þá munu hlutirnir væntanlega gerast eins og Chaletwo skildi þá, þ.e. Chalenor (frá því fyrir fyrra stríðið) mun koma og fara með Mewtwo aftur í tímann, þar sem hann mun deyja (í fyrra stríðinu).

Mew er kynlaus. Sá sem talar getur valið hvaða persónufornöfn eru notuð fyrir hann; Chaletwo og Mark nota "hann", en May notar "það" og Mewtwo notar "hún". Þetta hefur komið fram áður. Ég skrifaði líka smápistil sem talar nánar um þetta og af hverju hver notar hvaða fornafn, ef þú hefur áhuga.

Ef þú ert búin að gleyma um hvað Destroyerinn snýst ertu búin að gleyma meginatriðum plottsins. Ég ráðlegg þér að lesa stríðshlutann á "Plot Recap" síðunni.

Chapter: Chapter 55: Unprepared

I love the way the three of them adress Raudra and Puragon differently; Mark as "The red one and the white one", which is an obvious, first-glance type of discription; May, as "the fire-type and the ice-type", which is the strategic, slightly ogjectifying way; and Alan as "the one on the left and the one on the right", which has nothing to do with the dragons themself and only about where they are, and is the least objectifying form. All in-character and well done.

Reply: You have no idea how much it delights me that someone notices these silly little things.

No. It can't be! I just figured out that the destroyer is Molzapart! He uses memory modification to prevent the other legendaries from suspecting him, and you must have posted "Molzapart and Raiticune" for a reason (LOL). Besides, why are you only replacing Molzapart and not Chalenor or someone else? I know you're just going to say that my hypothesis might not be correct or something, but this is my best hypothesis yet!

Reply: I'm replacing Molzapart and not Chalenor or someone else because Molzapart is a tantalizingly dumb mixture of other legendaries that I created when I was eleven and Chalenor etc. are not.

If I were you I'd be very surprised if Molzapart had any kind of a crucial role, both because the fact he's replaceable would seem to indicate he's not that important in himself, and because I've generally spent most of the fic pretending he doesn't exist. You should also be accounting for the fact that according to at least how Chaletwo understands the Destroyer, he wouldn't be able to drain power while in a Pokéball with no physical anchor outside of it, which Molzapart has been for most of the fic. And for the fact that Molzapart wasn't even born until quite recently, on a legendary timescale, and quite by accident at that.

Yeah, I don't exactly know who the destroyer is, but I know it has something to do with Chalenor/Mew. Really, there was a lot of evidence in Chapter 61. Can Mew time travel by itself, or does it have to be with the preserver? That would explain a lot.

Reply: The only Pokémon that can time-travel are the Preserver and Celebi.

Chapter: Chapter 61: Mewtwo

Hey, Butterfree, awesome fic. I think I'm getting pretty close to telling who the destroyer is! I pretty much just eliminated the ones I don't know, but still…

Mew: Uh, why would you make Mew the destroyer? Mew is probably asscotiated with him/her/it, but I don't think Mew's the destroyer.

Molzapart: Ah, interesting. Unless you're lying about Memenity, or Memenity (I probably spelled it wrong, I meant the 4th pixie) is the destroyer, too, Molzapart isn't the Destroyer. Personally, I love Molzapart, and would hate to see him leave. Although if he were the destroyer you'd want us to think that.

Chalenor/Chaletwo: If either of them were the destroyer, the other would have to be, too. I doubt that Chaletwo would be because: 1. You made him before TQFTL. 2. Past AND future Mew would be lying. 3. You really like him, so I doubt it. All in all, Chalenor maybe, Chaletwo probably not.

Entei/Suicune: Maybe, they aren't in Pokèballs, but unless Entei/Chaletwo are lying, they're helpless.

That's what I've come up with so far, but I might post another comment. I love TQFTL, don't give up on it yet!

Reply: Don't worry; I have no plans of giving up on it. :P

I'm not sure who you're suggesting is the Destroyer, because it sounds to me like you just said "probably not" to all of these suggestions. Not that it has to be any of them, or that your assumptions are necessarily correct.

Story: The Fall of a Leader
Chapter: Part VII: Downfall

Þetta er flott nóvembersaga, en ég hef samt spurningu og athugasemd. Hvernig vissu Stormblade og Nightmare um Stalker? Var ekki Stalker unglingur, varla meira en Descith þegar þau yfirgáfu hjörðina? Hvernig þekktu þau nafn hennar, var það ekki Shadowdart sem gaf henni nafn á meðan Stormblade og Nightmare voru fjarri?
Athugasemdin er um sjálfsmorð Shadowdarts, mér finnst þetta einhvern veginn dálítið ódýr "lausn", hefði ekki verið hægt að vinna betur úr þessu? Af hverju reyndi Stormblade ekki að koma í veg fyrir sjálfsmorð hans?

Reply: Shadowdart var búinn að segja Stormblade frá Stalker í 6. hluta, stuttu áður en hann fór (það er kafli XXXIII, og þeir tala aftur um hana seinna). Nightmare vissi ekki um hana, enda segir hún ekkert um hana nema það sem kom fram þegar þau töluðu við Shadowdart.

Stormblade gat ekki stöðvað hann; hann gerði það mjög skyndilega og Stormblade vissi ekki fyrr en hann var fallinn hvað hann ætlaðist fyrir.

Hvers konar úrvinnslu hefðir þú viljað sjá? Ég held að enginn annar endir hefði virkað; Shadowdart hefði ekki getað lifað og iðrast, það væri engin lausn til að byrja með ef hann lifði og iðraðist ekki, og það að láta einhvern annan drepa hann væri ákaflega ómerkilegt, eins og nú sé hann bara vondi karlinn sem hetjan þarf að sigra, ekki sjálfstæð persóna með sína eigin þróunarsögu. En það mætti eflaust bæta við hvað gerist á undan.

Það eru djúpar siðferðilegar spurningar sem þú kafar ofan í í þessum kafla. Ég kann ekki við hvernig þú lýsir því að kynhvötin taki yfir vilja Shadowdarts. En þetta er sagt frá sjónarhóli Shadowdarts, og það getur einmitt verið að þetta sé afsökunin sem nauðgarar nota til að réttlæta gjörðir sínar. Það er því mín niðurstaða að þetta sé afskaplega vel skrifaður og hugsaður kafli.

I was actually hoping it would be a regular Pokemon adventure. TBH I don't like the new plot.

Reply: Well, that's too bad, but this is the plot, and the prologue/Chaletwo/etc. should have hinted it wasn't going to be just a regular Pokémon adventure. If you want Pokémon adventuring, however, the Pokémon adventuring is going to continue for a while with a few intervening legendary battles and discussions regarding the plot. I don't know if I'd call it regular, but there will be gyms and the league. Also, you're at the exact point where the fic is about to stop being horribly embarrassing from my point of view.

But if you're not interested, no need to waste your time. Sorry this isn't the fic you wanted to read.
