INTRODUCTION and RULES
FIRST PAGE

Previous page: [PAGE 13]
Next page: 

--

You *might* notice a little style inconsistency in this comic because - surprise surprise - I was working on this since April 2013. I never went on hiatus, not really, but school work and exams have gotten in the way of me releasing this page.

Part of this was done in my older computer before I switched to Mangastudio. If you see thinner and less-clean lines, those are from 2013. ;p

And yes I can FINALLY say it: MOIRA HAS POWERS!

I've been teasing this since the very beginning, but here is your big reveal! As mentioned before in Page 13, some humans in Burning Bridges retain pokemon-like qualities from when Humans and Pokemon were one and the same. Moira's definitely one of them. 


...Moira used Fire Punch! It's super effective. Just. Not in the way that she wanted.

We're finally focusing back to Moira and Donahue... and finally, Donahue's bad habit of theatrically being cheerful stops working. There are repercussions in forcing happiness on others, and Donahue has to learn them if he wants to work with Moira.

Tune in next month to find out what Moira's going to do next: climb on top of a mountain, sing a broadway song, and build a palace out of fire? Maybe? 

Burning Bridges updates next on December 31!

"Those two are a 2 AM domestic disturbance just waiting to happen."

LOL. The expression makes the delivery even funnier.

awwwwyessssss

A) title drop! always excite
B) i really  like the idea of burning bridges as a positive thing.  Yes, in choosing a path and moving forward you (by definition) exclude some choices forevermore.  But, these 'lost' choices can still help teach and define us even as we keep moving foward

Im glad you came back, and from the other comments i've read i think everyone is excited too.

Finally i see the connection from hint in the files of People/Pokemon to Moira. It's awesome, and i really like the meaning you bring up with burning bridges. I can tell it will be an awesome Nuzlocke and i just want to show you the support of the community to make sure you keep posting art :) We love it

Haha thank you so much!

And yes you got it! I wanted to foreshadow why Moira has powers, and why they're sort of 'normal-ish' in the universe she lives in. :D It means a lot to me to know that you're supporting the comic! THank you!

Soo...! This is what all the "bunring bridges thingy" was all about!

On a side note, I love your style! It reminds me of the 2000's old good Disney cartoon films!

That last panel! LMAO.

And I see that you're going with a more anime-influenced depiction of Brock, down to the heart background and hand-clutching. Perfect.

"May the bridges I burn light the way." Huh. I wasn't expecting the title to have a more optimistic dual meaning. This journey will be full of suffering, I'm sure, but I hope that this meaning will stick around too.

Yes thats it exactly! No one can escape the clutches of the Anime Brock double hand-hold!

Thats very astute of you! Burning Bridges is a story about letting go of things - Moira is trying to reconnect with a past that cant be a part of her life anymore - but it's also about how moving on can be very illuminating in its own way. :,D

Just as something different to say, I'm really enjoying how faithful you're being to keeping eveyone's sizes relative. Punzie is such an adorable small thing, haha.

Suppose this is also a great way to show just how far you've come since 2013 ahahaha... keep letting those bridges light your way, I suppose. c;

"Killed William Silph" ... welp, in addition to Moira of Overwatch, we can add The Bride from Kill Bill to Halloween costume ideas.

"I haven't dated a redhead since February"  - Apparently your Brock is a lot more successful than Anime Brock in their greatest passions.

ALL of Rapunzel's faces are wonderful, such an expressive birdie.

oh, and there's the title and a presentation of one of the themes that we can probably expect to see a lot more of.

It took me a bit to figure out what you meant by not really being on hiatus. You never stopped working on it, it just took... four years because of crazy life stuff. That's some hardcore dedication, and I am so very glad you did.

Ohmigod. "Kill Bill" I just got it! :,D

Have you seen brock without his shirt on? It's abs all the way down! 

And yes yes thats it exactly! I did this actually very shortly after update 10, expecting to continue it. But with exams, and graduation, and immigration woes, and then even more exams, it was only until now I could release it! Even worse in 2014 I had the bright idea of putting the team rocket things before this page, which delayed the release even further! :D I'm just glad you can appreciate it now!

Aww, poor Donahue is trying so hard. Moira is awesome.

And so are Rosie and Punzie, being the sane ones in the group.

I haven't seen anyone portray Brock as the hardcore flirt he is in the anime before. Awesome.

Writing it tho. Writing it out and drawing it is hard. :,D

First off: I love all the lore/ worldbuilding here. Traveling is what pokemon want to do; traveling is a HUGE deal to them, while to humans, not so much. And, that title drop!! That it connects to a pokemon saying, not a human, says so much about the team dynamics. It's Donahue pushing the team forward.

Secondly: I love how Brock is leaning towards anime canon. And I love how Moria punches him. WITH FIRE. I can feel the character introductions wrapping up before they set off on their journey . . .

And, of course: welcome back!
