Comic Status:

Night Fall will resume in December- I've been dying to draw some of my OCs lately- so I'm really excited to get working on it again. xD

Pokemon: Rising Shadows might go on hiatus again during that time- I love my Pokemon characters- but my original characters are much more important to me at heart. I feel bad for neglecting them so much.

We'll see...

NaNoWriMo Progress: Getting there. Slowly. Eventually. Maybe.

@WriterRaven: It's not like he could potentially be the main villain or anything. =)
HOO BOY. This page took a freaking... uh... at least 6-8 hours. That's more than usual by a long run. Lots of cameos and randoms in here! ENJOY!

I may have to skip the Tuesday patreon update since I'm behind on everything and probably won't be able to start and finish the next page over the weekend. It should be ready by Friday though! (I'll see if I can make up that Tuesday update in December.)

IT'S GONNA BE A FUN CHAPTER, GUYS.
@Thelinkmaster001: No problem!
@Thelinkmaster001: Try this link- it's taken from the home/news page of the site.

@TheJGamer: YEE! I'm thrilled too. =D

@Nashew: He is awesome. Also a very good business dog. =D And the stickers are officially up and still up somehow.

@NeonUmbreon: All the doggos

@wifijoe: Always a stressful hiatus, but I'll manage! xD I call it a hiatus, but I'm busy working on PRS in the background.

@Thelinkmaster001: Does it?

@buscuit: Pfft. Maybe. Not sure it'd be fitting for the next chapter. xD

@PossumeFlavored: No problem! I'm glad people are enjoying the comic thus far!
@NeonUmbreon: It's the most important part.

@somerandomguynumber1: YES.

@ArionArts: Naya is precious and too pure for this kind of fighting.

@TalkingEevee: She's terrified and shaken up.

@ShadowStalker1128: Ahahahaha

@Nashew: Main character advantage does not have any effect in this comic.

@Aura flame: Moltres broke the barrier- with a fully charged solar beam. I'd venture she's got more power than anyone else being a legendary and whatnot. Everyone's too focused on other things to worry about the flame. And yes, they've been playing the card game for a few pages now.

@Vortex_: Will it really though?

@TheJGamer: Naya has no concept of friendly fire.

@Zirilon: She should have.

@NikuComics: Yes. Yes they are. They've been playing for a few pages now, I think.

@buscuit: Naya is scared of everything.
@Nashew: -freaks out-

@TheJGamer: We all knew it was coming

@NeonUmbreon: That she is.

@Zirilon: PFFT.

@Shaede The Black Eevee: It just did.

@Pichu90: One way to find out.

@wifijoe: Yup! ... But was it the right one?

@TalkingEevee: Can she? I guess we'll have to find out...

@buscuit: SHUSH. THE SECRET CANNOT GET OUT.
Page made by the ever-so-talented Neo-Emolga!
AND IT'S DONE!

I was looking forward to this page. Cero was a toughie to draw- but definitely worth it. And upon popular demand during the livestream, he will be made available on Redbubble as a sticker- Both his serious epic pose and his slightly more derpy panel at the end there! Enjoy!

For now. Starting today, PRS is on an indefinite hiatus. This is to allow me time to prepare the next chapter. I've already got an outline ready- I just need to script, create thumbnails, and maybe get a few buffer pages done. I can't give an estimate on how long we'll be on break- but let's just say at least 1 month, at most... Christmas at the latest.

Anyway, some notes on this chapter...

I originally planned for this arc to have more in it. However, I realized how slow the story was going- trust me, it's taken 4 years to get this far- and decided to cut and condense some things so we can move onto the next phase of the story sooner! This is why the end of this chapter may seem a bit rushed- because it is. No worries though- nothing essential to the story was cut. The battle was just shortened a bit. There was gonna be a -lot- more for this. In the end, it was just filler. We've still got ONE more chapter in the Spring Flame story arc... and then it's a much needed change of scenery and a new arc!

For Patrons, I'll be posting some of the behind-the-scenes goodies such as layouts, scripts, the high-res Ch7 pdf/flash files, etc. etc. in the mean time. Once I run out of these Ch7 goodies, I'll probably start posting some concepts, layout sneakpeaks, etc. from Chapter 8... within spoiler limits, anyway.

For more frequent updates and news on PRS, be sure to check my Patreon, DeviantArt, etc. pages.
Naya's epic moment is over. Poor Naya just wants this done.
IT'S YOU!

MY NAME ISN'T 'YOU!'
Reading order looks just fine! ^_^ Poor Rodney sounds like he needs a nice long nap.

And thanks for hosting the stream last night- it was fun! =D
@ArionArts: It's fine. I get a little annoyed by it after a while. By the time someone posts 'YOU MADE A TYPO' type posts, I already know about it. And when the typo is the ONLY thing mentioned in the post, it's just a bit unnecessary and doesn't tell me anything new. It gets really frustrating really fast cause I look forward to comments.

Comments focusing on the page, story, characters, how people feel about events, etc. tell me more than you think- which is why I love them. For example, the number of comments concerned for Lucy during the Rock Slide was unexpected- people liked her more than I thought! If people predict things I had meant to be hard to guess, then it means I'm being a little too loose with info- or the opposite can be true- if people are surprised over things I didn't mean to be surprised! There's a lot to get from people's posts. But Typo posts? Not so much.
@ArionArts: I'm well aware of the many many MANY typos in the comic. I hate it when people point them out as much as you hate being 'that one person'.

The thing is, I don't have time to go back and fix every typo I posts. If I don't fix it before I upload it, too bad. It's staying (unless the typo is bad enough to effect the intended plot). You see, I upload the comic to several sites. To fix one typo, I go into the file, edit it, save it in two different formats, then re-upload to each individual site- each of which has it's own upload/edit process. It's just not worth it in my mind for a silly typo.

I tire of posts that consist of nothing except 'You made a typo!' very quickly. I get e-mail notifications about comments and am quick to check them when I have a break. It's always disappointing to see someone stating what I already know is there instead of stuff like predictions, opinions, thoughts, etc. on what's going on (which are actually helpful and effect how I approach future pages.)

TL;DR - I dislike comments that consist of nothing but a typo correction. Also, I'm unlikely to go back and fix typos unless they're bad enough cause it takes too much time to edit and re-upload to 5 sites.
Naya finally spontaneously combusted! I was building up to this for FIVE chapters. In fact, it's the exact same page number in Chapter 2 that Echo promised this. Page 18 of Chapter two he teased her about it. Page 18 of Chapter 7 it happens.

Poor Naya! She only has to survive two more pages of this. For now.

On another note, some people asked me to make a PRS poster available on Redbubble: So assuming it doesn't get taken down by the time people see this, here's the link! Two dollars of every poster sold goes to <s>my sticker obsession</s> helping support the comic.

@wifijoe: I wouldn't say less chaotic exactly, but a bit less stressful. Classes have begun and a hurricane hit- so things are crazy.

@X man: That really means a lot to hear me! When I was little, I hit a hard time in my life that I struggled to overcome. I found that movies, books, etc. - just stories in general helped me get out of that rut- so I've always wanted to help spread more to give people something to look forward to and inspire people to keep going! I know it isn't the best story in the world, but for as long as people enjoy it, I'll keep it going til it ends!

@NeonUmbreon: STICKERS!

@Skylar101: Thank you! Class has started, so it's been a bit crazy, but in a good way, I suppose!

@EternalEclipse03: You want have to wait much longer! There's a page in the queue right now! Gotta wait another day to see it though!

@JollySyko: That Misdreavus is none other than Mist when she was younger!

@PlantNinja1: Thank you! =D
@LightEclipse: Thank you!

@TheJGamer: How so? xD

@Shaede The Black Eevee: He's precious and very unlucky!

@JollySyko: Yes they are!

@Nashew: Yup! Many had already guessed!

@42Meep: Thank you!

@JollySyko: Lots of spinning! Poor Reggie!

@wifijoe: Thank you!

@buscuit: Clearly!

@Eeveelutionlover: I'd respectfully ask not to be told how to write my own story. I've got plans for many of the baddies shown here.

@Huaqas: Thank you! It's been a really nice change of pace from the labyrinth scenes- that's for sure!

@ShadowStalker1128: The Yamask is winning.

@Guest: I have not stopped working on PRS. It takes a lot of time to work on this comic andas a result, it sometimes has to be pushed aside to allow me to focus on more important things in life.
Even Mist knows better than to trust Amber's teleportation at such an important time... It's okay though- we've got Naya to the rescue!
Pardon the delayed page. This is the beginning of round two for the artists!

Enjoy!
Heya, everyone!

Sorry for being away for so long. Life got busy with family illness, stress, trips, and getting sick myself. Things are improving though, so hopefully I'll be back into normal routine soon!

First off, I plan on resuming updates next week. We'll see if that actually happens.

Second, I've updated the Patreon with a new queue of posts to last for quite a while! =D YAY.

Third, Etsy shop has been restocked with postcards.

Fourth- STICKERS. I now have some stickers up on Redbubble for anyone interested. ^_^

Lastly, the raffle results! There were lots of entries for June, so I picked 6 SJ winners. 5 of them have already been contacted via the discord channel. The last one is: Skylar101

That's it for now! If you want more in depth update on what's been going on, check Deviantart!
