HI!! 
 
I have a LOT of stuff in the works regarding this comic, but in the meantime, have this - it's a conversation I've had written down for a long time, as an afterthought, but I feel like this was a perfect moment to actually include it. I've been itching to get more into Rosa's background for a while.

Expect a new page in early February, along with some other good stuff!! <3

Oh boyyyy TVTropes has divined that this extra comic is the worst thing that could have happened for these characters' lifespans

I only got around to reading this nuzlocke recently and oh my gosh I regret not starting it sooner!!!
This nuzlocke is just a concoction of all the right things so wonderfully packaged with a colourful and beautiful art style :’0 even though the comic sometimes shifts between black and white pages with one coloured panel to full colour pages, it’s honestly genius the way it’s set out and it flows really well! Not to mention it’s so satisfying to enjoy the little details you add into the pages!
and GOSH I LOVE YOUR CHARACTERS SO MUCH??? LIKE I WOULD DIE FOR ALL OF THEM and I love the lgbt+ representation you put into your characters and they just synergise so well with each other! I can’t wait to see more of this series and it’s just such a gorgeous nuzlocke, youre doing an amazing job and keep it up!!

Ohhhh thank you so much!! ;o; I used to do b/w to save time but ended up deciding that I'd rather put a little extra time in to really capture the vision I have in my head of the world and atmosphere, so that ended up changing ;;
I'm super happy you like the characters! They're ultimately the main focus of my comic and what I really work most on, so it means a lot <3 thank you, you will be seeing more hopefully very soon!

Oooh I like this bit of worldbuilding! So does the bulbasaur line reproduce asexually then? And if so, do all grass types reproduce like that or only some?

:iconeffsnares:
Effsnares Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2019
yeah, that was my thought process! I think many of the plant or flower-based Pokémon would have that quality, like Budew and Oddish and Foongus etc.

Wait, I'm confused. First Rosa says she has thirteen saplings, but they says they stay with their mother? Is Rosa a guy?
Reply
:iconeffsnares:
Effsnares Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2019
No, she's female and so is her mate, I'm thinking they reproduce asexually :3

Or maybe the whole "eggs are cradles that hold pokemon given to them by Arceus"?

Sorry bout the confusion, I usually fall back to game logic since the games have binary reproduction... with certain exceptions of course.

Yes, it's back!! I really missed your comic, it's so heartwarming and beautiful. Glad to see my favourite character (the respectable Rosa!) getting more backstory. I also like the idea that the Bulbasaur line reproduces asexually, just like many actual plants. I'm asexual and my Pokésona is a Bulbasaur ( Rescue Team Draconia by empyrean-dreamer ), so I approve on a personal level. x3

Thanks a lot! I tried to give her a bit of the gothic / rocker style I have in real life. And of course she adores dragons just like me. :3

This was such a beautiful page. And I cant ever get over how gorgeous your lines are. I tried something similar with a "pencil like" brush for my lines in a discontinued nuzlocke I did, but your linework is seriously something else. Great work! Can't wait to see what you have in store for us next time!

Thank you so much! In early pages I've sworn by Kyle Webster's pencil brushes, but recently I've been using this awesome brushset, mainly the mechanical pencil for lining, if you want to try that out!

This is so cute??? Oml?? It's such a nice show of personality and emotion between Rosa and Shima, it's really nice to see little extra interactions like this.
Also I always love seeing some cute moms <3

Asexual reproduction I'm guessing? I like it, makes it easier for same sex couples to make babies, I mean if they wanted to anyways.

I was intrigued by the idea of Bulbasaur reproducing asexually! and furthermore, picking the gender they want to be referred to as at some point in their lives if they feel like it...!

... Im gonna think the venasaur is a bio female that likes to be called a male but Rosa is the only one allowed to call him a "she" because its fun to be gay parents 8Dc

I approve lesbeans parents :heart:

My train of thought was that all Bulbasaur reproduce asexually and just pick their gender when or if they feel like it! but I welcome all headcanons.
