I'm on no one's side when I say this, but... 

Persephone is coming off a little cruel here. I know she means well, and certainly she SAID the right things, but... her timing is terrible. Broly is still reeling from the initial rejection, and though Persephone has her (very valid, totally legit, and completely respectable) reasons for saying "no", she's KIND OF giving mixed signals. I don't think Broly is reading TOO much into it, but on a subconscious level, it's just a bit in poor taste for her to give him such a tinder hug after rejecting him. And yes, Broly has confidence problems, we all know that, but that kind of adds to the cruelty of Persephone's actions. She MEANS well, we all KNOW she means well, but sometimes... you need to give a person (or in this case, Pokemon) more time and space.

And yeah, Broly's been moping for a while now, but at this point, I think we can all agree that he's a natural worry-wart and it's part of his personality. Not to mention that the MAIN reason he even refused to tell Persephone his feelings for so long was because he BELIEVED he'd be rejected. Which happened. So now, any confidence he may have built up to this point is more or less shot. THIS situation is hardly helping, either.

Again, I'm on no one's side here. I DO honestly believe that Persephone had every right to say no and reject Broly. I love the fact that she can stand up for her interests and self, and not be a plot device to romance while still being able to recognize that Broly is a sweet guy whom she loves... as a friend. I just think that this wasn't the best handling for this particular situation, especially given Broly's personality. I know everyone's trying to help him, and I hope that he'll eventually get over the rejection (preferably without him or Persephone dying) and become a stronger Pokemon emotionally, but what with Poseidon and Silver's romance and Pallet's own romantic tragedy, it maaaaaay have been too soon on Persephone's part.

But, all in all, I appreciate that about this nuzlocke. You're covering a variety of different types of relationships and various stages. It's a good, healthy mix, and it keeps things interesting. Who knows? Maybe Persephone's right and someone WILL come into Browly's life who's more for him than Persephone. Or maybe not, but he'll get over it and come to love her as a friend in the same way she sees him. There's still possibilities for the both of them. It'll be interesting to see where they go from here.

I didn't think that the hug was out of place, but what you're saying makes a lot of sense and I'll keep it in mind while moving the story forward in the new format. Luckily with it being written I'll have more freedom(?) to delve deeper without having too much about pacing.

This was very helpful and insightful. Thank you.

I wouldn't say so much... "out of place" rather than just Persephone not reading Broly's emotions well. She's trying to be empathetic, sure, but based off of Broly's expression in the last panel, he seems uncomfortable and saddened by the contact rather than relieved or grateful in any sense. It makes sense for BOTH their characters, though. Perse is simply more forward and likes to resolve things NOW (just a few pages ago, she was urging Elon to talk to her brother) whereas Broly needs more time with his emotions (he's still reeling from the rejection that happened). It's cruelty through kindness, which can negatively effect a relationship going forward. Broly might feel like Persephone's not really SEEING his feelings, which can put a strain on their friendship. Of course, I'm making somewhat massive assumptions here, but I am trying to follow the patterns of behavior presented so far. I do hope that they repair their relationship, though. It'd be awful to see that they can't maintain a friendship due to different emotional wavelengths clashing. At the same time, though... at this point, it's a possibility. Of course, you're the writer, so I trust you have a solution in mind. ^^

I'm glad my comment was of help, though! You're welcome~

I don't mind the rest being told in Picturelocke style, as long as we get to know what happens. (Plus, I really love your old Picturelocke stories.)
