Roman is "vacant" - born without magic. But when his neighbor gives him a strange stone and tells him it could fix his condition, he thinks his struggles are finally over. Unfortunately, things are rarely that easy.

This user sometimes disappears for weeks on end to finish a single update, then bursts with activity for 30 hours straight.
Glad to see you here snooze! God, I haven't looked at your first post in forever. You've won so much shit, what the fuck..

Regardless, glad to see Burn Away settled into the new forums! Maybe the move to the new forums will result in less dad death, less Grief.
DD... Hm. I'm not finishing that acronym.

regardless, enjoy your stay on the new forums! Hopefully you enjoy your stay!

She's like a sea urchin. Tough and prickly on the outside, but delicate and easily wounded if hit the wrong way. Please handle gently.
Welcome welcome, Snooze! :D Glad to see your awesome comic has joined us here already!

Ahhhhhhhh! It was so good to catch up to this amazing and wonderful comic! My god the last chapter and some has been a crazy roller coaster. Especially with such sad events ;; but you've handled the aftermath beautifully and that second gym battle with Abella, I was almost sobbing by the end. My god. Please kill me more. I can't wait for your next update.

I haven't commented on your last update but those lore drop and character moments between Cousteau and the gang??? Gorgeous. Also great job on making Route 10 look more eerie and challenging to go through with all those rocky terrains! I love Kalos so much and your take on it has elevate more of my love to it. Looking forward to more!

It’s also great to see how far you’ve come and how much you’ve improved since the start! Burn away never ceases to amaze me, you really have a way with developing characters, and you can tell how much care you put into each page

Welcome to the new forums, and i look forward to your future pages <3

Snooze!! Hey!!! I really love the way you've used the albums here!! Holy fuck!!!! I've never seen half of these bonus artworks before and I'm so excited to see them that Cousteau palette artwork knocked my ass clean off and I'm typing this completely fucking assless now, thank you so much.

The new banner is looking pretty great, too! I love the composition! You've still got your sweaty lad down pat, huh.

also why is Ulrich more embarrassed to be in a shirt showing two inches of chest than he is to run around stark fucking shirtless in Kalos? Does he have any idea what that goddamn does to people? Jesus.

That new cover is on fire! It's lit! It's hot! It burns my eyes with it's glory! Honestly though it's amazing that you could start with such good art and yet still somehow improve so much more from there. I love how you do fire effects, especially that subtle little mega evolution symbol you snuck in above the title.

Oh man, just powered through this entire comic, and it was worth it. The art is amazing, first off, with some of the coolest-looking gijinka I've seen, but more than that, everything else is just solid. The entire cast is amazing (Abella is def my favorite, what with not only her general design but also her backstory and sheer, raw, unending determination), and they play off each other amazingly. Even Cousteau, who I was certain was going to have trouble fitting in (given that he's technically indirectly the cause of Ulrich's death), is actually quite nice to have on the team, and I'm already liking how he works with Roman (their back-and-forth, Roman's uncertainty about trusting him combined with his willingness to actually cough up info when it sounds like it would help get him info...).

But hoo, I need to make a special mention of this last gym battle because oh my god, all of it was intense. First and foremost, there's the fact that I really kinda didn't want Sasha to die (at least, not yet), and with this run, literally anyone can. So the second he started dropping blood, it was anyone's game, and it was such a relief to see him get in those lucky shots with Scald.

But then. Then you have Abella's battle. That strategy. Those final pages. Having it go back and forth between her first meeting with Ulrich and the battle, culminating in having him stand next to her at the moment of her victory. I was just. Going to lose it right then and there. That was beautiful, and it made up for all of the internal screaming that went on when Ulrich died.

And now we come back to Elaine, which means we're gearing up for more funtiems, but the thing is, on the other hand, Roman and Sasha have a full team now. Sasha is evolved and a league battler hot off his first victory. And of course, Edie is an easily pissed-off grass-type with experience. Elaine doesn't stand an effing chance, and it's going to be a delight to watch her get Vine Whipped in the face.

Or in short, I'm really enjoying this run, and I'll def be keeping up with it. 8)

Okay so. I had been wanting to re-read this from the beginning for quite a while! I had honestly started to forget all the earliest context and characters, and it was sad not to understand everything as I kept following this wonderful comic. And so I finally did it!

First of all, the improvement, god! Keep going cause this run is absolutely gorgeous.

And. I fuckin swear. I knew what was coming, I knew it, and yet, I almost actually cried as I experienced Ulrich's death and Abella's gym battle all over again. Like wow. That surely doesn't happen often.

So I am certainly watching this thread because darn it, I love your work so freakin much! <3 <3 <3

h-hewwo......... took a few extra months but........ chapter 3 is done (` v ` ;; )

thank you all so much for the kind comments here (and oh my god Bug, i know i already screamed at you on discord but i ADORE this mini mix and i cant believe you directly called me out with the song choices ;___; )!! i'll be replying to everyone individually in a following comment, but i wanted to let you all know how much i appreciate you <3

- This fight is loosely based on an actual trainer battle along route 10 featuring a rollout-ing azumaril, so I thought it would be a perfect time to reintroduce Elaine. <:3c
- The title of this chapter refers to multiple things - Leader Atlas, the ancient king from cousteau's stories, and the mythological archetype of the same name. :>

Long ago, people imagined its eerie howls to be the call of the grim reaper.
Someone got knocked the heck out thanks to the help of super natural flashbacks. That looked like a rough fight but I think everyone should've survived... Roman just needs to not go out first for a bit.
