Chapter 57: The Mind Game, Part 2
Chapter 58: April 21st
Chapter 59: April 26th
Chapter 60: April 30th
Special Episode #6: Sometime later...


Well, that was a bit of a schedule slip there. Not only was the chapter harder to write than I thought, but real life just kept bugging me. The zoo trip turned out to only be the beginning of the curveballs.

By the way, in case you thought I was cuckoo with my previous journal, I was, of course, referring to the game Ingress. Ingress is currently the most successful "alternate reality" game in the world. An alternate reality game is a game that requires you to perform tasks in the real world. Generally they have been associated with viral marketing campaigns for video games and movies, but with the advent of GPS-enabled smartphones, they can do some quite interesting things, like pitting two factions against one another in a make-believe war over geographical locations.

Anyway, this chapter ends with a scene I've been wanting to write almost forever, one which makes fun of (and justifies) the strange "restrictions" sometimes placed on jobs in the PMD games. You'd see the perfect job, and it'd have something attached like: "Restrictions: with Vaporeon." Why...? Well, now you'll get to see my take on that.

A big part of this chapter was character development for Otto in the first scene. Otto is now about 75% complete as a character. There is one more event I have planned to complete him.

Other than that, there isn't really much to say about the chapter, except that I hope the cliffhanger at the end is enjoyable!

Hey Scytherider!
How have you been?  Did you have a good time with your "mission" at the zoo?
I'm really looking forward to the new chapter!

I'm currently working on a fanart pic but it's my first time drawing both charmander and Raichu, so it won't be perfect but I hope you like it.

Well. I have been given an AMV. I have truly hit the big leagues!

I am totally buying that song now. Thank you for the burst of inspiration! I needed it after all the stuff real life has thrown at me this week.

you know, I recently realized

The conversation in Eon Fable between Lotus and Ignatius- where they're talking about "why the forest burned" is literally the perfect metaphor for Twitch Plays Pokemon Red's view of Flareon.

Hey Scythe, I was wondering whether you had plans to continue the revision of the SR chapters, or not? I found them very insightful, and was curious since the last revision was last August, I believe.

I do have plans! They're just harder to do than it may seem. I always dread the formatting horror awaiting for me when trying to edit a revision chapter. But after I get the month's batch of new chapters up, I'll see if I can get any more revisions done.

Today's the day you mentioned in your journal. Well, assuming things went okay for you, I certainly hope you enjoy your new free time, Scythe.

Six more days.

Yeah, this week got longer somehow. I'm not quite sure how it happened. But I'm almost there. Again.
