And with that, chapter one comes to a close! Thanks so much to everyone who's joined me on this wonderful journey so far. We couldn't have gotten out of Littleroot without your amazing support!

A couple of announcements! First off, chapter two of Finding Your Roots will be beginning on Tuesday. Since the entire next chapter is already drawn, there's no need for a short hiatus. Yaaaay! Same time, same place!

Secondly, I'm sure a few of you have noticed that there's a new tab at the top menu, World Map, that's under construction. I've been debating for a while about what I wanted to do with this tab. At first, I thought about having a worldbuilding update in between each chapter where I would give more details about the world that haven't made it into the story. But I realized that if something doesn't show up in the story, it's really not important or relevant to the audience, and I don't want something like that to ever become required reading. But I did want to at least have a little bit of information about the world, since FYR's verse is very different from canon Hoenn and standard PMD regions. So I decided that in that tab, you'll be able to view a map of the world! It'll be a full map of Hoenn with little tidbits of information for every city, village, and landmark. So it won't be an overwhelming amount of information, but it'll be a nice resource for you all to have, and you'll be able to keep track of where Cedar and the gang is in the world as the story goes on. I should note that the map won't be finalized for a long time and will be subject to changes in canon; nothing will ever be set in stone until it's stated in a comic page. But it should be fun to build! That will release within the next few weeks. I'll make a comment when it's out, so stay tuned!

That's enough rambling, I think. If you made it to the end of chapter one, thanks so much for reading. The adventure is just beginning, so I hope you'll all strap in, grab some popcorn, and enjoy the ride!

@MouseWithADinosaurTail: As much as I appreciate you continuing regular updates, I could understand if you want(ed) to take a break. Secondly, It's your map so you should be able to add whatever you want. Not everyone is afraid of reading (like me). However, it is nice that you took our attitude into consideration. Overall, it is really nice.

@silversalandit110: Don't worry, I would take a break if I need to. But chapter 2 is already entirely drawn, so there's no need at all.

It's not actually solely my map. :0 It belongs to me and every single reader of FYR who wants to use it and learn more about the world. This story and its content would only be solely mine if I drew it but just kept it stowed away on my computer. But I'm sharing it with you all, and to ignore that all my readers are equally part of the journey would honestly be pretty foolish and disrespectful. You all and your opinions matter, too!

(And honestly, authors, artists, and storytellers who hold the attitude of "my story, I'll do what I want, I don't care what you audience thinks" tend to make some of the worst stories. Nyeheh.)

@MouseWithADinosaurTail: It's still a really nice conclusion.

Not on the computer but I found a loophole

Reply That1Geek, November 16th, 2018, 6:54 pm

@MouseWithADinosaurTail: Is this based off an actual nuzlocke you ran? I'm curious to know what could've happened if Cedar died in the run.

Reply MouseWithADinosaurTail, November 16th, 2018, 6:59 pm

@That1Geek: Yup, this is based off an actual nuzlocke I ran! Cedar was my starter. And Cedar dying at some point during the run is very much a real possibility. :)

Reply TerrytheTeryx, November 16th, 2018, 7:34 pm

Why would you say something like that.
Why would you break my heart like that.

Reply MouseWithADinosaurTail, November 16th, 2018, 7:39 pm

@TerrytheTeryx: Heheh, sorry. ;u; It's just the reality of the nuzlocke. If it makes you feel better, I did my absolute best to take care of her and her friends throughout the run. :3

Reply TerrytheTeryx, November 16th, 2018, 7:50 pm

@MouseWithADinosaurTail: Lol I hope so.
How would Basil react knowing his dear friend wouldn't be coming back?

Reply MouseWithADinosaurTail, November 16th, 2018, 8:56 pm

@TerrytheTeryx: Probably not terribly poorly, considering they aren't friends. :0

Reply Truefan108, November 16th, 2018, 7:57 pm

Yeah!! I am ready to get this started

@Truefan108: Glad to hear it! :D

And so, it begins.

Okay- caught up!

This story is so pure and wholesome it makes a cinnamon roll look bad. <3 Your art style and the way you draw characters is just so precious and nice! The narration works very well in giving it a story-book feel. I'm excited to see where this goes!

... It's a nuzlocke though so I should probably go grab some tissues. Just in case.

Keep doing amazing work! =D
