h-hewwo..... may i offer you a.... comic page in these trying times?

artist notes:
- for those of you interested in what happened in-game, i was in a battle with a trainer's sigilyph, which dragged rho into battle with whirlwind, then OHKO'd him with a crit air cutter. u____u you can find a more detailed rundown of the battle [ here! ]
- since rho wasn't a legally licensed battler, the sigilyph will be facing legal consequences for his death.
- compared to ulrich's funeral, rho's was organized fairly quickly - in just a matter of 3 days. this was able to happen because there were no other people to contact/invite and they didn't need to allow time for travel.
- geosenge funerals take place on route 10, so that's where the latter part of this page happens!
- roman is 15 now! his birthday actually happened on pages 37/38.

also i just wanted to say thank you guys so much for all the comments and reactions to the last page and the comic overall <333 it really is overwhelming and im so grateful to all of you for reading and enjoying the comic!! ;;__;;

I love your comic sososososo much!!!! It’s adorable and heartbreaking; I shed real tears!! Real ones!!!!!! I’m actually doing a X nuzlocke as well! Fennekin was my starter too. I named him Firefox lol. But my current favorite is my, now Spewpa, Skytter. She’s my favorite bug type actually and maybe you could put a Spewpa or Scatterbug in as a bg character just walking abt? It’s super super okay if u don’t want to!!! But I just really love your art and want to see my girl in gijinka form... Don’t feel pressured or anything, I’m really okay I you don’t want to. But if you’d like that’d be nice... 👉🏻👈🏻

im so torn apart that they never found rho's family. ;-;

at least the team seems to be getting closer. they need each other ;^; <3

also, Edie with her hair down... she has always been very pretty but DAMN she's gorgeous with her hair down!

And Rho burns away...


The thing that really strikes me is that they couldn't find his family. It's difficult to remember exactly how Rho ended up on the team.. One day he was just kind of there. And in the time he was with us, we learned almost nothing about him. Who was he? Where did he come from? Who were his friends, his family? Did he have any at all? Is there anyone out there who's missing him?


We'll never know. That knowledge burned away, with him.

Beautiful imagery. I love that the last thing we see as Roman is invited to stay is fire. So fitting

im so happy to see this softer side of edie, and i cant wait to see how her relationship w/ rowan is gonna change & evolve through the next pages

also!! the emotional impact you convey through each panel, especially with that fire, is so fucking impressive. i think this might be my fave page so far

Lots of people say "well it beats a red hot poker in the eye" when they have overall shitty birthdays but i am not entirely convinced Roman would not prefer a red hot poker to the eye than fucking this.

I love this page? Oh my? Especially the team interactions, like Sasha comforting Abella in one of the top panels,the way Edie just,, leans into her, "You can stay with us" just,, oooh, it's so good. I'm sad Rho had to die to bring them back together, but they seem to be picking themselves back up and I'm glad about that. Kazz is starting to worry me though, I hope they'll be fine.

Also, I've said it before, and I'll say it again, the amount of work you put into this is STUNNING! I especially like the fire, it's so satisfying to look at 😍

Christ Snooze, your writing is fantastic. Edie is quickly becoming my favorite character (which is funny because the Bulbasaur is one of my favorite lines). I really hope Edie learns how to open up a little bit after this :sob:

So much to go over here! I love how much thought you've put into this world, and how the battle licensing works.


The EMOTION in this is so amazing, and your colour shifts really help to show that. How heartbreaking it must be for them to realize they were apparently the closest thing Rho had to a family... that nobody else cared to show. Damn.


That bouquet is so cool. So well thought out, so epic. And poor Roman, doesn't wanna get abandoned by his buddies, despite the (really entirely fair) declaration that only battlers are allowed.
