Oh hot damn that was a spectacular ending! It was really a beautiful story, so thank you for all the hard work, time and effort you've put into completing this comic. Like with most comics, I get inspired to do my own, but I'll have to fight that terrible battle of staying motivated. Again splendid job, I've enjoyed reading this very much!

Thank you so much!! It means a lot that you took the time to read it and that you enjoyed it so much :)

Good luck on your own stories!! Motivation was a battle for me too. Trust me, I understand the struggle. But you just gotta push through, and if it's a story you love enough, you will finish it :)

have i already commented on this? i don't think i've already commented on this.
omg, you're done, really done. what's it feel like? happy? sad? wow, that was quite an accomplishment :eager:
it was really awesome to see this comic grow and become what it is now. i've not had the pleasure of seeing a lot of nuzlockes being finished as a comic, and just let me tell you that i'm proud of you for finishing this. you do a lot of nuzlockers, and writers as a whole, honor with finishing what you started.
i really like how things turned out in the end. i love how gary and skye didn't get things sorted out completely, 'cause life's just like that, you know? you can't get every happy ending in one go, some things take longer to settle than others, some will never get resolved. both of them are still young, maybe they'll see each other again. you recognize a good character if you're able to imagining them having a future that continues after the comic is over. a story may be finished, but it's usually just a single part of a character's life that we get to witness for a short while, but his life is supposed to continue even if we're not around to see it. i can imagine skye having a future, with issues yet to resolve, and others that she'll eventually have to face. for now, i'm also proud of what she accomplished.
the pokemon were wonderful as well. how often do i see nuzlockes that for the sake of the plot completely toss aside their characters, especially the pokemon. they're the reason nuzlocke exist! they need to have screentime, they need to be fleshed out, that's what it's all about! i really can't stand comics that have entire strips without a single pokemon in it, i don't mind dialogue-heavy pages, but let there be pokemon! fortunatedly, you understood that, and it paid off, since your pokemon are not just a bunch of background fighters, but a family.
lastly, i love how you didn't put a period after the final word. as i said before, we're done witnessing these character's lives, but their stories aren't over. it's a very artistic choice.
all in all, this has been a very gratifying journey, and should you ever decide to write/draw a sequel, i can't wait to see how the story continues! :heart:

I humbly thank you for everything you've said here. It's touching that you took the time to write such an extensive and well-thought out comment. Thank you :)

I'm so glad you enjoyed Skyward as much as you did. It was a pleasure to create this comic for you guys, and it was so nice to see so many comments and so much support from you personally :hug:

I suppose a sequel is something I should address, so be looking for a journal about that :)

Thanks again, Laura! It means a lot.

you're welcome for everything <3
i also just saw your journal about this and want to tell you that i'm completely fine with not getting a sequel, there also always comes a point where a character needs to be put to rest if there's nothing left to say about him. be looking forward for some original stories though! :huggle:

I'm kind of sad this is over already (given that I started reading it recently), but I'm very satisfied with the conclusion!  I've said it before and I'll say it again:  I LOVE THESE CHARACTERS!!!  I'm so glad they all get a happy ending like this :D

and now I'm crying...
It was a very nice story... very emotional at some points but the characters left an imprint in my mind which is interesting ^^
the fact that the last line was brilliant was mentioned enough but I do have to mention it
great work ^^

That title usage... BRILLIANT Clap 

Let me tell you, I wasn't expecting to say this, but this page in general, and at last part "SKYWARD" is personally motivating me. Not just for my Nuzlocke, but for me as a person. 
It's like listening to High School Musical's "We're All in This Together" for the very first time. It's a rich, sunshiny feeling.

Can I dork just one more time? One more? Okay, thanks, I will. :meow:

Remember when I said that you sometimes drive the story forward with a bit of emotion? Well, here is another example.
The simplistic art style goes hand in hand with the emotional text here. It's almost like you're "continuing" the story of Skype and her crew of merry partners. 
You could have just stopped the Nuzlocke at "Whelp, Skype finally won the League. Story's over. That's it, let's drop the story like a anchor." But... you didn't. And for that, I am fully grateful.

I like the characters. They're not over the top amazing, neither are they boring and bland. They're just right, like Goldilocks eating Little Bear's porridge. ^^ And the fact that I remember what each character is like after taking a break from your Nuzlocke, and then coming back later to it means something. Probably something good...

One thing I admire about your Nuzlocke is how you use humor. Throughout the Nuzlocke, jokes that are used are not shoved RIGHT IN OUR FACES, like you're just begging us to laugh. They're more subtle, and given the dramatic pacing of your Nuzlocke, it works really well.

I just have one issue. Why Chip is able to come back in ghost form, yet Freedom (and other Pokemon I may have forgotten) just die with the battle and never appear again since. It plays well in the story, but why this happens without reason just bugs me.

Bug. Like Freedom. Cuz Freedom is a bug. 
flail plz 

Anyways, Good GOOD Nuzlocke. Congrats for the ending the Nuzlocke on such a high note!!

I am so happy to hear this. It's really touching that my story could move you personally :')

This whole comment just made me smile. Thank you so much for all this feedback and dorkage! :D It's so comforting to hear all this and know that I correctly executed what I was trying to do here.

Ok, as far as the ghost thing: The ghosts that linger are the ones who aren't at peace. Chip stayed because his spirit was going to remain troubled until he resolved things with Elle and Skye. Freedom, on the other hand, was at peace before he even passed away, so he moved on immediately :)

I apologize if that wasn't clear in the story. (I like the bug pun though XD)

Your support has been fantastic! Thank you, and I look forward to your Nuzlocke as well!! :hug:

No problem. "Skyward". Ending title... NICE.

I'm glad. Like I said before, It's not often a Nuzlocke impresses me so, and the fact that everything leads to another so nicely is really freaking awesome.

I KNEW it, I KNEW it!! That thought crossed my mind several times, but I just wasn't sure. That explains the monologue Freedom gave before he died.
Most likely I'll be reading your Nuzlocke again. ^^

No problem, and thanks for the support! :huggle:

I CAN'T FINISH A STORY WITHOUT DOING A TITLE DROP, SO MIGHT AS WELL END IT WITH ONE

Thanks so much for reading this, Em! It means a lot coming from a fellow cartooning Nuzlocker that I highly respect :D Thank you!!!
