As I'm sure many of you know, the comic is now at the point where I can no longer see a complete list of all the fans, so I can no longer do what I did in the past and list everybody's usernames.

I've instead decided to take MoogleSam's suggestion and only thank specific people who've impacted the comic (my affiliates and first fan) as well as the people who commented recently (in this case, "recently" being the last 8 pages, because they show up on the front page), and specific comments that really stood out to me (GHOST COOKIES!). That's how this'll go from now on, but it doesn't mean I value any of the rest of you any less.

Thank you to everyone for your support and kindness. Without you, this comic would not exist!


In case any of you are wondering about the Popularity Poll in question, you can find it here:

I had to drastically lower quality to get it to reasonable size, so you can find the higher quality version here:

@JamestheTyphlosion: & @littlekirby61524: Haha, yeah they are quite adorable, arent they? :3

@Missalice3: Ah, yes, well it can't be all darkness all the time, can it? These fillers are my chance to lighten up a bit.

@Janobii: Hey of course! Ghost cookies were just too awesome an idea to pass up! ;D

@Luigi_96: Well, if there's anything in particular bothering you about this comic, feel free to say. I'm always looking for feedback and trying to improve. ("This sort?")

@wugfish: Ah, glad to hear you're liking it! Hopefully it won't disappoint ya!

@Ninja Kitten XP: Yeah, I've always wondered what they look like under those things. I mean, even the Pokedex says "No one has ever seen its true face!"

@MoogleSam: Well, you shouldn't have. It was a great suggestion! :D Thank you for making it!

@Mujaffa: Ha, well I never get tired of comment spam! I'm going to be honest, the only reason I draw anymore is to read people's comments (even when they're not positive of course), so I always appreciate the comments!

@Shadow-Charmeleon: Haha, in general I can't never ship anything either! I'm kind of a sucker for smaltzy-romancy stuff. And nope, nothing's gonna happen to me! That's a promise.

@Gigazyber: Well, I can't claim credit for it, go thank Janobii for that! And thanks! Hopefully we'll make it there! :)

@SoraIndigo: Yeah, there's a fan theory that cubones are actually Kangaskahns that've lost their mothers. After all, a species isn't sustainable if every time someone is born its mother dies, right? The population would be halved with every generation.

@Nekomata-chan: Hey, no problem. When this comic got started, I got no fans for like, the first ten pages. The only reason people paid attention is because a few much more popular artists like The Being, SilverLunarwing, Rym218, Pokemontrainergigi, and Banakin agreed to affliate, even though I was really unpopular. I've always been grateful for their early support, and now that this comic has a bit more support behind it, I'm more than happy to try and help out other people too, "not enough fans" be damned! ;3
And that's not an issue. I'm not usually really a commenter either! I always struggle to make meaningful comments even in comics that I absolutely love, so I can understand the sentiment! Thank you for everything!

@Pantherbrine: & @SilverLunarwing: Thanks! Hopefully things'll keep going well! Glad to have you guys on board! :)

I'm not a huge fan of shipping in general, much less this sort.
That being said, I'm probably one of the only ones who feel this way so I'm just gonna leave it at that and say thanks for the mention, and keep up the amazing art.

*shipping intensifies*

This was one of the first comics I picked up 3 years ago when I joined SJ at the insistent prodding of my college roommate. It has been an incredible ride, and I still cannot wait to see what happens next!

Its great to see you've reached this mile stone! Lol! Love the ghost cookies, and I like the way you perceive what a cubone looks like under it's mask!

Haha- congrats on 300+ fans!

Also, thank YOU for affiliating with my comic! I remember there was a time I sought at affiliates and some people declined because I didn't have enough fans or some other nonsense. So it really means a lot to me when people ask me to affiliate with them! Especially a comic as well done as yours is so far!


And sorry for not being an active commenter- I've always been a bit of a lurker, but I'll always drop in here and there! It's been a real pleasure watching this comic grow- you've improved quite a bit from the start of the comic (not that you weren't already awesome!)- or rather, from Ch. 1 before you decided to go back and add the prologue.

@SpeedBoostTorchic: "this sort" referring to gay shipping. I'm just not a fan of it is all.
