Marge comes from "mar", one of many words meaning the sea in Icelandic. As a rule, I name my characters the first thing that pops into my head when I think of the character. Marge is the only one of the Gym leaders with an actual semi-subtle pun, with Flora and Sparky just there to parody the games' Gym leader names.
Of course it has a nostalgic tug, but that doesn't make it any good as a title and I acknowledge that.
Ahum. Sorry if all these HTML problems are annoying you, but it's stopped displaying the images with a top border, despite my addition of top:25;, which is what made it go just below the cursor before. Is there something obvious that I'm missing?
Ah, that is obvious now that I see it. I feel like an idiot now.
EDIT: I just reread the thread, and was thinking. Would using Splash as a fifth move be grounds for punishment in an official battle? Or would its useless nature mean you were allowed? …Well, granted, it's useful if you splash water on a Fire, Rock or Ground Type. So excluding that scenario.
…do you mean how as in "how did he manage to actually cut through the scythe material" or how as in "what does the cut look like"? Generally I'd assume the former, but the second sentence makes it sound like the latter.
The former, by slow "sawing" (though not quite, since the edges aren't serrated). The latter, they're quite a bit bigger than just that little notch - as The Fall of a Leader mentions, there ends up being very little left of his left scythe. I drew it a while ago to demonstrate.
