You write these characters so well and incorporate such distinct personalities and you have no idea how much
my heart has gone out to Marigold (and in such a short time; I started reading this Nuzlocke earlier in the day). I don't
know, maybe it's the fact that this Nuzlocke is told in the perspective of a young, timid girl, but Mari's experiences really
get to me--especially regarding her family.
In other words, the fact that I'm crying right now shows that you have exceptional skills and I adore your work.
Keep it up!
It all seems very familiar...a man I know from a seaside city...
And I understand poor Mari's predicament. While my parents are inseparable, I lost a friend to such things. He changed after that. We stopped talking because he started hanging out with people who bullied me frequently. Two branches of my family were also stricken with it, and my cousins wound up very estranged.
So I'll go by one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite movies.
"You know, some parents, when they're angry, they get along much better when they don't live together. They don't fight all the time, and they can become better people, and much better mummies and daddies for you. And sometimes they get back together. And sometimes they don't, dear. And if they don't, don't blame yourself. Just because they don't love each other anymore, doesn't mean that they don't love you. There are all sorts of different families, Katie. Some families have one mommy, some families have one daddy, or two families. And some children live with their uncle or aunt. Some live with their grandparents, and some children live with foster parents. And some live in separate homes, in separate neighborhoods, in different areas of the country - and they may not see each other for days, or weeks, months... even years at a time. But if there's love, dear... those are the ties that bind, and you'll have a family in your heart, forever. All my love to you, poppet, you're going to be all right... bye-bye."
the feels, poor mari ;w; she looks so pretty in that first panel though ;O;
also happy related birthday/christmas! hope you had an awesome day
With this much build up, are we actually heading to Kanto after the elite four? I don't believe I have ever seen a Nuzlocke do so.
This whole year for me has been a struggle to get through due to a personal reason that happened last year--the 23rd of December is the aniversary of said reason, in fact--and despite the pain and sadness I felt from this comic, it also was a nice read too.
Thank you. (:
Us: You should take a break from drawing stuff and hang out on the holidays!
You: *Draws something anyways*
Ahahaha... ha.... well, that was unexpected. XD
Years back I caught my dad with his bags packed as he was about to walk out the door. I didn't know what was going on, and somehow he didn't notice me, so I ended up saying nothing as he walked out the door. I went back to bed, no clue what I just saw, only to wake up hours later to come down stairs with my mother in tears.
My father had left us.
For years I tried to understand why my father had left, and even after they have gotten back together I still don't know why, but for a time I thought I was the reason why no matter how much my parents told me differently. I thought that maybe if I had stopped him, that maybe he would of changed his mind and stayed, that if I reminded him about how much he loved my mom and us that he wouldn't go. Years later I've realized that it wasn't my fault, but even to this day I wonder... What would of happened if I stopped him?
Awww... I was going to ask if she would go against her Mom at some point and leave on S.S. Anne, but then you said that she didn't know what he looked like...
Do you plan to go to Kanto in this comic?
