Yeah ... long time no see. It's really awkward too, since I said I'd try to update every second week. I should have said "every second month", that's a promise I might have been able to keep. Anyway, reasons for the delay are many, school, the usual mess, my computer sorta died (I finally got a new one), but mostly it's been because of the mess (I don't feel like going through it in detail though). I'm having a three week break at the moment and so I've been able to work a bit on the comic. Anyway .. I know these few pages don't bring much to the table. But still. Thanks for your patience.

Great job with all the background details. Really emphasizes the change in tone from the nature scenes of last chapter.

I just love your backgrounds! It truly adds to the change of scene! And don't worry, even if you had posted only a single page it would have been worth the wait!

I found this comic posted on Imgur recently and couldn't help but read it all the way through in one sitting, and then again the next day. I'm overjoyed to see new pages and to see you're still planning to finish it. This comic is brilliant. Others before me have told you how much and in what way, so I'll just add my voice to theirs. Keep up the fantastic work!

Everything looks clearer and more noticeable. I've always enjoyed little things like this where we get to see all the characters doing as they please. It allows for great development.

Please, take as much time as you need. We all know real life can be painful and catastrophic at times. As much as we delight in reading each update, we want the author to enjoy the story as much (if not more) than the readers. So we'll patiently wait until the bad stuff passes, so that you'll be having a great time along with us.

@Qlock: So, I have a... suggestion, I guess? A random idea. Hear me out.

My headcanon when I was playing the game as a kid was that Gary was part of Team Rocket. I figured maybe you could use that in the series. I mean, just look at the evidence:

Blue(game counterpart of Gary) appears leaving Nugget Bridge... where the Rocket member was recruiting.
He appears on the S.S. Anne... where the Captain has mysteriously become ill.
He appears in Lavender Town, supposedly burying Raticate... except Team Rocket is there, too.
He appears to battle you in the Silph building... possibly to slow you down before you reach Giovanni, giving the Rocket boss more time to try and get the Silph president to hand over the Masterball.
He takes over the Viridian Gym after he loses his championship to Red... the same gym Giovanni was running. Coincidence?

The way this series has been going, I think it would be a perfectly fitting turn of events.

Further evidence, outside of FR/LG, mixing game/anime/movie canon a tiny bit:

In Crystal, when you first find Blue, he's at Cinnabar, studying what little remains of the town after the volcanic eruption. Why?

Well, if you recall, there were journals throughout Cinnabar Mansion that detail the capture of Mew and the birth of Mewtwo. If Gary is a part of Team Rocket, he may be trying to find information leftover on Mewtwo's creation, since only he, Fuji, and Giovanni really remember anything about Mewtwo, and there wouldn't be anything left after Mewtwo destroyed the lab on New Island. If they could get enough data back, maybe they could once again attempt to recreate the most powerful pokemon in existence. So there's more evidence (speculative) that Blue may be involved.

We later learn that Fuji was involved in capturing Mew, when you read the sign on Faraway Island in Emerald. With the aforementioned connection between Fuji and Team Rocket, perhaps he was at Lavender Tower for slightly more suspicious reasons than just putting the troubled Marowak's soul to rest? Fuji was involved in the creation of Mewtwo as much as Team Rocket was. Team Rocket gave their island hideout to Fuji to use as a lab to try and clone Mew, and he also tried to clone his deceased daughter.

I think that, after you beat the Elite 4, you could add a bunch of that creepy grimdark stuff into your series somehow. A crazy "holy shit, Gary's been a Rocket this whole time?!" kind of moment, being part of the reason Oak is disappointed in him when you beat him. Maybe some background stuff or foreshadowing with Giovanni helping Gary, or supplying him with stolen Rare Candy or something, so he can level up his Pokemon really fast for the sole purpose of beating the Elite 4 first, since I assume somewhere along the line there will be a storyline development that makes everyone go "Robin, you should go for the Championship!" Just to really drive home the point that he's the biggest dickhead in Pokemon history.

Also, I just noticed, does that Haunter in the first panel have a Saiyan scouter? And a little right-angle moustache? IS THAT GHOST NAPPA?

@Random guy again: Yes, that is Ghost Nappa. xP (I'm amazed someone over here actually knows him! That's pretty cool!)

As for your ideas ... well. It's a really cool headcanon! The main plotpoints in this comic are already pretty much carved in stone though, but I won't say if they're along your lines of thought or not ... But thanks for sharing your ideas anyway. :)
