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!

I thought you should know that in my current White 2 Nuzlocke, my strongest Pokemon is a Sandslash named Shander.

Little tribute, I suppose.

Yep, sorry I had something come up. It'll have to wait until 2 weeks from now.

Well, I am certainly not someone who can ridicule other people for missing self-imposed deadlines!

Take as long as you need!

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.
