Chapter: Chapter 59: December

I'm excited to see where this both sides of the story goes. For one thing, now that they know the type status of the dragons, they might have attack advantage, but if having to fight all 3 the level difference must be crazy. Also wondering what will become of Scyther and I hope he doesn't leave for good. I like him with Mark.. but we shall see!
Also, I enjoyed Stantler chewing out Alan. It's time for him to let things go and see the bigger issues. Still wondering if a vengeful crazed gym brother is lingering around the corner somewhere… :)

"I shouldn’t comporomise that just because I feel weird about it, no matter how justified." Spelling error.

Reply: Fixed. Well, technically I fixed it yesterday, but I forgot to respond.

Can't wait for the next chapter. I loved the spin-offs, can't wait to see how Scyther's gonna react to the Shadowdart fiasco. (Wait, did I spoil the story for people? Nuts)

"The suicide was breeding to begin with."
So they kill themselves to make young?
…or that could be a mistake, and the sentence should be: "The breeding was suicide to begin with."

Reply: You're semantically misinterpreting it; the wording is as intended. Chaletwo is saying she committed suicide by breeding to begin with, not as a result of what her children did. It is written that way around to make the suicide the subject of the sentence: he's not discussing the fact that breeding was suicidal (he's already established that), but the fact that the actual suicidal act happened before the modern Color Dragons were even born. Basically, the sentence breaks down as "[The suicide was] [breeding to begin with]", not as "[The suicide was breeding] [to begin with]".

Or, if that's incomprehensible, basically it amounts to this:

"She committed suicide by throwing herself off a cliff because her children were fighting."

"Actually, the suicide was when she screwed their father."

Is it that hard to take that meaning away from it? I can't really read that sentence your way; the "to begin with" doesn't quite seem to fit.

Oh my. (That's about all I can say, since I haven't read the story in FOREVER).

Very dramatic, as usual. I like the twist of neither of them guessing the Color Dragons' types correctly. Is there any way to tell by looking at them, or do you have to see what moves they use?

Also, I'm half-heartedly coming up with my own region. Could you share some insights as to how you got the idea for Ouen and what direction you took it in? Thank you.

Again, very nice work. =D

Reply: The Color Dragons both look and use moves as if they were Fire/Water/Ice/Poison-types, hence why Mark and May simply assumed that was what they were. Game-wise, they'd even have abilities that give them a STAB-equivalent boost for those types of moves. But in reality, defensively, they all work simply as Dragon/Flying-types, double weakness to Ice and all.

I didn't exactly "get the idea" for Ouen so much as just… start writing, make up random town names and gym leaders, and eventually make a map around those. There isn't really a central concept of any kind behind it; I just wanted to make up a region, so I made up places that sounded cool and stuffed them into a haphazardly strung-together region which then got development as I wrote.

Oh, my. Another one of those informationy/calm/transition chapters that segue(sp?) into a really, really eventful one. I see a lot of character development that encourages a lot of hope for the relationship between May and everyone and her soul-searchingness.
I'm even more pumped for what happens next now. Scyther is one of my very favorite characters and though given the current state of the swarm, I'm not worried for his life, but there's just so many ways that could turn out. This chapter is one of those that adds to the characters' likeability, and makes it very easy to cheer for and want the best for them.
We're all on our toes for the coming developments, I'm sure.

Fallegur kafli, yndislegur. Þú skrifar af mikilli dýpt og næmni. Ég get ekki gagnrýnt neitt í þessum kafla, hvet þig bara til að halda áfram á þessari braut.

Chapter: Chapter 26: Dead or Alive

I feel like May should have reacted more to somebody's coming back to life, or at least said, "I miss you" or something along those lines. I don't know, but she acted as if this happened to her everyday. If they're good enough friends to travel around the world together, May should have missed him or felt something. Otherwise, this was a great chapter!

Reply: This is an old chapter and I don't know what the hell I was thinking when I wrote it.

Chapter: Chapter 10: The Mew Hunter

"An abandoned Charmeleon, a baby Eevee who didn’t know what Pokémon training was, a Sandshrew who had just gained his very first bit of confidence, a starved, weird Gyarados, and a depressed Scyther."

This part just made me crack up. I know it's not necessarily funny, but the exact wording you used for Gyrados was just too much.

Also, you forgot to mention Dratini.

And finally, the Pokemon Mark catches all seem too obvious. Honestly, it actually surprised me when Scyther leaped out the window rather than just join Mark right away. And I've noticed that while half of Mark's team can talk as well as a few other occuring Pokemon, the only one that surprised people was Gyrados. They all reacted when Gyrados spoke, but when Charmeleon, or Scyther, or Kabutops spoke, they just acted as though it were normal.

Reply: Dratini wasn't mentioned because there wasn't anything off about him to Mark's knowledge that could have been listed in that sentence.

Gyarados is the only Pokémon that actually, physically speaks human. The other Pokémon aren't speaking human; they're speaking Pokémon speech, which is translated in the narration because Mark understands it (as established in the first chapter).

Oddly enough, the Pokemon that it asked me to type in the name for was Larvitar…..

Anyways, that was super-duper sad, I almost cried when you described poor Mew.

I have always thought about what your average Mewthree would look like, and I guess this is a pretty good idea. Scary, wish I could've known what the one it's tied with is. You probably did that for suspense, right?

Þetta var frábær kafli, Hlín. Samtölin algjörlega frábær. Og líka flott að byrja kaflann í miðjum bardaga. Breytingin á May dýpkar, án þess að verða óraunveruleg. Þetta er mjög trúverðug persóna sem þú hefur skapað, og hennar þroskaferli mjög trúverðugt.

Enskan í fyrri hluta kaflans fannst mér sums staðar ekki nógu vönduð. Orðalagið, orðaröðin á setningunum var ruglingsleg eða illskiljanleg, kannski voru smáorð sem hefði mátt sleppa.

I like what you are doing, Butterfree. I could have my little words here, but what would they be next to yours?

Wait, what? When did Scyther die? I forgot.

Reply: In chapter 10, before he joined Mark. The Mew Hunter's Fangcat fought him and killed him, but Mew resurrected him.

Stuttur kafli. Þú lýsir því vel hvernig May er að þroskast og breytast. Hún er bæði meðvitað að reyna að gæta orða sinna gagnvart pokemonunum, og svo ómeðvitað er hún meira hugsi og alvarlegri, einhvern veginn.

Ég skil ekki af hverju er allt í einu talað um Chaletwo í pokebolta, er hann ekki inni í hausnum á Mark?

Reply: Hann er á báðum stöðum. Líkamlega er hann í pokébolta sem er inni á tölvukerfinu, en hann er búinn að tengja sig hugrænt við Mark til að geta talað við hann. Þarna er talað um að Chaletwo hafi samþykkt að vera sendur út í líkamlegu formi, þ.e. pokéboltinn hans tekinn út af tölvukerfinu og hann síðan sendur út með venjulegum hætti.
