Welcome back to The Writer’s Locke, a Nuzlocke Reading Project!
In this episode, we’re excited to introduce two new storylockes onto the podcast: In the Sun’s Embrace by Thirteenth, read to us by glancesherlock; and Run Away, Survivors, by JavierE64, read to us by our very own host, Rainey! In addition, we’re returning to Eusine’s journey in Carousel, and we’ve brought on two brand-new special guests to talk about writing antagonists!

If you’ve got some thoughts to throw down about the discussion segment, have at it! As usual, we’ve prepared a couple of relevant questions to refer to if you’re not sure where to start:
- How would you define an antagonist?
- Where do you draw the line between general conflict and an antagonist?
- What is your favourite type of antagonist, to read, to write, or both?
Your interest and support has gotten us all this far, and we're incredibly grateful for it. If you have any feedback about the transcript or any other aspect of the podcast, we'd love to hear from you! Feel free to drop a post here, in the main Writer's Locke thread, or to send a message direct via forum PM or Discord DM to a member of our crew!
"Amongst all these foreign sensations, it's this feeling he never wants to forget. The feeling that he's defying reality in the most elegant way."
In the Sun’s Embrace
In Ecruteak, a city renowned for its connection to the spiritual, the role of a spirit medium is an important one. From a young age, Zoe has been able to see the spirits of the deceased. When the Burned Tower collapses and claims the life of a worker, Zoe is forced to reflect on the journey that has brought her to this point in her life. Because if there’s one thing Zoe’s learned from her travels, it’s that everyone has their ghosts.
Run Away, Survivors
In a world where humanity no longer exists, the entirety of the Hoenn region is inhabited by bands of Pokémon struggling for survival. Near what used to be known as Littleroot Town, a den of Poochyena sustains itself by hunting local prey. One night, one of the Poochyena--the smallest of her pack--flees for her life, only to encounter a strange, lost little Mudkip all alone in the wild. What follows is the tale of a journey across the continent in search of a better life.
