Long time no see, huh? So, I have some things to discuss with y'all that is important.

To make a long story short, I posted an update on Deviantart not too terribly long ago talking about how I didn't think I was gonna finish the comic/continue it any further from here...the comic was getting to be too much of a stress factor to deal with on top of school, and felt more like an obligation than a hobby.

Now with that being said, I've been feeling very nostalgic for pokemon lately, and for this comic, and wanted to work on it again out of nowhere a few days ago. Hence, this page.

I don't want to make any big promises, but I do really love the story, and coming back to it reminded me of how much I love working on the comic when I do it for ME, not for all of the fans. It's fun drawing pokemon, and I really do miss the comic isn't going anywhere as of right now. I'll say that much. But I don't know or think I'll be too terribly consistent with updates, because as it is I'm working on it for myself and not for you guys. It is MY project after all.

With that out of the way, I've been playing around with the idea of opening some cheap pokemon (or warrior cat) commissions here soon, because I'm broke and want money lol. Would anybody be interested in that? I don't know prices as it is now, but I'm thinking they'd probably be somewhere around the $5 - $25 range (depending on how detailed the pictures are of course.)

I want to open a low tier patreon (like, $1) so people can see some exclusives for the comic and stuff, but like I said, since updates aren't set in stone or anything right now, I don't wanna do that. It wouldn't be fair to have people paying me monthly (even if it was just $1) for almost NO content for a while, yaknow?

Either way. Enjoy the page, thank you for sticking around with me for so long, and I really do hope I can work on the comic consistently again. <3

Well eh,most authors draw their comics and stuff just for fun so there's no need to think badly about it plus it's good to see you're back.

Eh!(here I am embracing my inner Canadian) welcome back! Glad that the comic is continuing, I know life can get very stressful at times. I think that having random updates is good since this is something you enjoy, and you don’t need a schedule to add to the stress. Keep up the good work!

You should always do whats best for ya, mental health is more important than the comic you're making. I think that a patreon wouldn't be bad, I think that people donate to support ya more than getting special benefits, cause supporting others is always nice.

The page is nice, I wonder what that note on that plant is about.

It's great to see ya again. Anything I could say now would either come across as disingenuous, or super cheesy. So what I'ma do is just say, you do you. You probably don't care about my speals, but ya don't need to feel obligated to do this. No offence, but it'll be fine if you do stop; I'm sure that most would understand that you just didn't have the drive that you had before or you were super stressed. All that being said, I'm still glad to see ya and the comic... my previous points still stand.

Ayyyyy your back! i cant wait until the next one, if there is a next one, its OK if it isnt, but if you do want to end it end it with an actual ending please. please dont just say "IM DONE T-T" i would even just like it if it was simple and straightforward and was just "And they saved the world later on in their journey!". so Good luck, And just do you

"Hot snot we are back in business!"

(If you got the reference, congratulations! You win one nothing!)

I understand that when a "want to" becomes a "have to" it can become draining in very short order, so I've got no problem with inconsistent updates. Just ignore the ungratefuls who start screaming for MORE a week after each page. I'm still here after 10 months and a lot of others are too; mature fans will be happy with whatever you decide to do. In the end, it's a free-to-read project on a free-to-read website, so you have no duty to anyone as far as scheduling updates or updating at all.

Welcome Back I hope I did not make you think i was pressuring you to make a schedule or try to rush you for more consistent updates. I simply wished to know whether the comic was going to be continued at all. Now i have my answer so take your time. If you decide to completely abandon it well tough luck for me.

@evil-Umbreon: glad you're interested in this again... also i find that the comics one does for oneself often turn out better because of it. so cant wait for more.
