Awe, Pallet! Poor Beautifly. I was rooting for PalletxAeolus. With Pallet being one of your veterans, the character development from Wurmple to now is great. I understand that giving the other characters screen time is good and Pallet is still grieving so I hope things turn around for the better in your future updates.
Yeah, Liam was kinda dickish (pardon me) and stuff in the beginning but a lot has happened since then and looks like it had a pretty big impact on him and his behavior. And seeing him change a bit has made me like him a lot more.
I can't decide between Persephone and Liam. I really like Persephone, and she almost gets my choice, but Liam has had some really good character development, which I'm a fan of, and seems like he will be having a lot more. They are my two favorites, and I think they should be together.
