Silver's Comments:

SOON. I PROMISE. Oh, my god, guys, once again I'm so so sorry how long this is taking. I'll be home in CT in a couple weeks, then updates will kickstart back to their normal pace. MANY PROFUSE APOLOGIES I KNOW HOW AGONIZING OF A WAIT THIS MUST BE FOR YOU BUT THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE OH GOODNESS it will be worth it this is the part where (the rap breaks down) rising action is going to lead us to the climax of the second arc.

A reminder that the summer contest is ending soon! I'll repost the rules here:

Imagine what summer's like in Aezala. Depict a scene with at least one character in it that encompasses that idea. I highly encourage you to think in more world-building terms and go beyond what I've explicitly delineated in the plot-- maybe draw something in a town we haven't explored, or with a minor character you have a headcanon about.
- must have at least one STLE character
- can be drawn, written, or in some other medium. I'm more lenient with this one than previous contests because it's not a huge deal this time around.
- deadline is July 30
- please PM me a link to your entry, don't just throw it in the comments here
- there's only two prizes this time; first place gets a lined/shaded request and second place gets a shaded sketch.

You have exactly one week if you plan on entering; I've got three submissions already. C: I'll have a poll once things are consolidated.

Because things are slow in the summer humidity, how about another reader question?

What do you associate with each character/the story?

Can be anything: music, voices, colors, whatever. I'm curious since I have my own associations, how they differ from the fans'.

Replies from previous @Braxis (Guest): 100%

@MoogleSam: To be fair, Nick's been under a lot of stress in the past few days. He's only been at Auranova for three, four days? It's a completely new world for him full of fear and danger and violence. That reminds me, I should really put the timeline up somewhere on the site once I get back home (I have it down with dates even, but it's in one of my planner notebooks). Only about a week has passed in-universe, though.
haha, oh Phi, they have no concept of common language. They don't even know what gender is.

@Gaz (Guest): I just added that to the FAQ:

STLE's story is divided in such a way that it is broken into chapters and arcs, which are groups of chapters. Like other fictional works, this story follows a three-arc structure. Arc 1 encompassed chapters 1-13. Arc 2 is chapters 14-24. Arc 3 will be chapters 25-30. These three arcs define three narrative movements within the story, each with their own rising action and climax.

@caboose (Guest): No humans exist in the story. There have never been humans in Aezala, and there never will be.

@T-H-E GUY: People are just loud and whine a lot when they don't get what they want and think they can influence something beyond their control. Ha, "Silver Wing Fleet", that has a nice ring to it.

@wugfish: Nick, Josie, and Daniel make a great triple power team. Too bad they won't ever all be in the same space. C:

@gothaman1: To be explained in Chapter 22.

@spudwalt (Guest): Well, considering only a week or so has passed in-comic, Radon's already past his half-life point. C: Also, as far as TVTropes go, any revisions to the 5-man bands? Heel-Face turn?

@121GWJolt (Guest): Crowning Moment of Badass indeed!

@Randommanectric (Guest): Years of practice. I have most of it in my head but I write down plot points and chapter scripts in planner notebooks so I won't forget them.

@Grassy (Guest): Yo dawg, I heard you liked conspiracies, so I put a conspiracy within your conspiracy so you can scheme while you scheme.

@MasterPlan1300: Hey I know you're excited but please don't assume the tone where your predictions are the way the comic will go down. You make some good points with the Eclipse drawings but I'm not telling whether or not you're on the right track~

@silverumbreon (Guest): Aw, hello! Thanks for posting! I'm really glad you're enjoying the story. This summer is completely out of the norm for me; I'm out of state meaning I don't have access to my art supplies until I head back. But fear not! Updates will resume at 2 or 3 times a week come mid-August. As for the publishing thing, I just posted something in the FAQ about it.

I'm just so excited for the next pages, I can't wait to see what you have for us ^^.

And it's alright Silver, just do the best you can and don't stress yourself <3 ^^

Luigi_96, 23 Jul 2014 02:02 pm

Ooh, nice cover!

Also wow that summer contest is still going on? I thought that ended some time ago.

Nickvenom (Guest), 23 Jul 2014 04:23 pm

Character associations! Among other things. (aka wall of text) Ok, putting as many associations as I can:

Luna: I put her under a musical association with (what seems very random) Nickleback's Savin' Me.

Sol: seems more of like the elder (forgot his/her name) that's inside the ancient temple in Skyward Sword.

Krypton/Lionel: Relates to Demise from my perspective.

Aquaris: She seems to relate with Maylon (hoping her name's correct) from Ocarina of Time. Always hopeful.

Comet: She is.... a bit dramatic. Color associated would have to be a fire-orange.

Blitz: Angry. Too much red coming from him.

Shadow: Almost like Girahim. Almost. He seems to be the more intelligent side of Girahim.

Loup & Sparks: The twins from WW. Color-wise both are a light green to yellow.

Xenon: Girahim ticked off would suit him.

Eclipse: Song: Melodies of Memories Past by Monstercat. Character related: Water Dragon. Color: ???

Nick: He's not a Link in my books, thank goodness. Color would have to be a sea-green.

Syena: Hmmm... I'd have to go with Grandma from WW to an extent. She's kind yet she can hold her own (as proven in the fight against Krypton).

Daniel/Radon: Oh my gosh I can't describe how much of an awesome character he's become! How do you make him be so amazing Silver, how?
Color associated: Red to blue and everything in between.

Character: I... I can't. He's unique.

Song: Your My Best Friend by Queen

Reece: He's a purple-red for me. He just wants to make sure that those he cares for don't wind up injured, and doesn't heed his own safety, even though this wish to protect has him accidentally underestimate Syena.

Josie: Another one that I don't understand how you do it. She is amazing. Fearless in her quest to get Nick back from Auranova, and she eventually trusts Syena and Reece.
Color: White with a hint of yellow-orange.
Song: All Star by Smash Mouth.

Grace: Oh gosh, who can forget the spunky, nosy lass who wants to get into everything!
Color: seems to be green and red switching now and then.

That's all I can think of for now (phew).

I can wait however long you need, Silver. This is too good to be impatient about. More so than the HP books or Inheritance Cycle.

Zachire, 23 Jul 2014 05:37 pm

Wow The cover of this chapter is AMAZING! You have amazing artistic skills.

TwilightUmbreon, 23 Jul 2014 06:46 pm

I'm using some of Nickvenom's comparisons in this.
Reece- In that sense, he reminds me of Naruto
Syena- She reminds of Sakura. (From Shippuden)

silverumbreon (Guest), 23 Jul 2014 10:29 pm

I think it's really awesome that you respond to your comments. Most people don't bother to do that, so it makes me happy that you do. I would have started posting a while back, but I feel that you don't have the time for that. So, that being said, I will (try) to start commenting on every page from now on. (I am, however, relived that you don't usually take so long to update.

T-H-E GUY, 24 Jul 2014 12:15 am

Short + Silly Video Here's a quick video I whipped up because Nickvenom made a comment about Josie being correlated to "All Star" and I think I'm hilarious: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hwHOq8Tvcdo

Nickvenom (Guest), 25 Jul 2014 03:19 pm

And i forget that there was a cover great

Anonymous (Guest), 26 Jul 2014 09:14 pm

How I view some characters This is a tricky question in my opinion, or I'm just over thinking, but oh well.

The two main characters, Josie and Nick, I find them the too perfect Pokemon in this series. They both hardly have any flaws and they can stand up for themselves. They are intelligent and seem to be innocent and perfect compared to everyone else, making them stand out as leaders.

Nick is able to turn a truthfully loyal Pokemon against his best friend after so many years, how is that even possible?! One Pokemon suddenly appearing and the loyal Pokemon just does it because Nick says so, the fudge!!! Josie is suddenly able to fight back those whom bulled her so many years because of Nick...

What makes him so special ,he is nothing, just a foolish Pokemon that acts like a leaders when really, he's nothing. Some people call this heroic but I find it unrealistic. Nick and Josie are able to stand up to many other Pokemon all of a sudden, when they never dealt so this before, how are they able to do it and not others.

I find this a flaw since in the real world, many are bystanders so two characters being a able to do so really makes it seem as if they are mocking us as we can't do what fake people can't. The story seems to center two perfect Pokemon trying to live a normal life, only to get a whole load of an adventure only to be the leaders of something they never faced before.

They are too heroic, they have no flaws, they are leaders, they can cope, they have abilities that aren't even real so they can G-mod a few times, so the answer to your question, is this. I am alright with some characters, but not Nick or Josie. They are just too perfect to me.

Guest, 27 Jul 2014 11:54 pm

So wait... *reads FAQ about arcs* that means 10 more chapters and the story is over? Or is that just a generalization
