@SoulRaider116: Thanks!

As for my username, it's the latter. I think cephalopods are awesome. :)
@wedward45: I can totally see it.
@Mystic Fire: Not doing that will come back to haunt them, yes.
@Mystic Fire: Nope, the PC in this comic is really a girl. :) Thought I'd mix things up a little.
@JollySyko: Aww, thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed it! :)
@WiispNightmare: Thanks! I'm glad I provided you with a quality all-ages comic! (Hopefully Oak doesn't give too many kids nightmares...)

Thank you so much for your support!
@Sanji: You're welcome! It's been fun!
@Sanji: Thanks. :) Better to end on a high note, I think. At least then, we'll always have positive memories of the project and not "it was great at first and then went downhill".
@Nashew: Thank you so much for the kind words! I hope you enjoy my tumblr ramblings!
@Shard: I tried to keep to a maximum of six like in the last game, but I needed a Pokemon that could learn Waterfall and Dratini sounded like a good idea. And then I stumbled upon Suicune while I was traversing Johto and couldn't think of anything better to use my Master Ball on.
@Torkie: Wow, that does sound like a ton of work! And then to restart it... phew, you've certainly got something to keep you busy for quite a while, it sounds like!

If you want to take the idea behind TWTF and turn it into your own project (under a different name, of course), I say go for it! Part of the fun of this comic was showing in what other ways the Pokemon games can be comic-fied besides Nuzlocke runs.
@Alienoid: Thank you! I'm so glad you've enjoyed it! It's nice to know I've made such a contribution.

And it made TVTropes, which is... incredible.

On to more fun stuff!
@Torkie: Thanks for your understanding. :) Yes, webcomics are definitely an immense amount of work, even if it's only twice weekly and the art is as simple as this. It does pile up.

I'm glad you've enjoyed the comic over the years, and I wish you the best with your stories! I think you'll be able to finish them someday as long as you don't give up. ^^
@Ultizeta: That's true. Just thinking about all of the towns, routes, NPCs, and trainers in the later games is overwhelming, haha. The first two gens were simpler times.
@Golb989: That's true. I couldn't really find anything in his dialogue in the game that inspired me. As much as I love GSC, I feel like its script just wasn't as odd as RBY's, and it gave me less to work with.
@Golb989: I'm honestly really sorry to disappoint everybody like this. But I feel that this is the best course of action considering everything else I have going on nowadays. I had an idea for a webcomic, I went with it for two books, and I feel satisfied with what I've done. :)
@Golb989: I had such a hard time trying to come up with anything funny for the rival in this game. For some reason his personality was just not as easy to work with (or warp) as Blue's. Rather than try to force a joke (which never works), I decided to just downplay his presence.

Except for when Kris beans him with a Poke Ball in the Rocket Hideout, which is hilarious.
@HaikenEdge: Sorry about that. I gave this decision a lot of thought and I just feel like it's time to move on. I'd rather end on a strong note than try to stretch it out, get burnt out on it, and have the comic's quality suffer.

But hey, maybe someone will pick up where I've left off. :)
