Finally, a GOOD moral in my comic! Don't run towards people talking about murders. No matter how curious you may be.

I was actually suprised on the last page how many people thought that I'd suddenly made Dragonthing talk... I'd honestly not expected that. My bad I guess. If the texts difficult to read in the top panel, it's meant to be because it's quiet. Atticus himself is struggling to hear it somewhat.

This chapter's turning out to be quite long D: Hope no one minds. But that's kinda because this one chapters it's own arc really.

See y'all on wednesday.

Atticus, you know that you are the only trainer that would recieve a charmander that has a tendency for insane actions. You're just that lucky. Unless Dragonthing has a different idea in mind, in which case, you now have a somewhat smarter charmander. But it's still asking for trouble. XD

Yeah, it's common enough to hear it. I've heard it plenty of times. :/

Atticus has great advice. You don't run towards the talk of murder. But how else are we to introduce the two criminal antagonists who witnessed Atticus "murder" the poor bug?

...When did Dragonthing make friends with those two? At least, if he is running toward them, and them being those two guys... Well, there wasn't any cussing in there, so maybe it's not those two.
Atty looks worried in the first panel. It's kind'a funny. He acts like some big shot, killing pokemon and all that, and he's worried about one word.

Annnnnd the criminals from before re-enter the scene within the next few chapters (after all, they were hiding in the bushes, and wandered off into the woods). It probably isn't DT talking, as H0ly gave us a great clue with the "Char" in the previous strip. Rather, it's probably one of the two screwing with him.

Besides, I've always imagined the first thing DT would say to Atty (if he could) would be: #@%~$ YOU!.

Edit: Just noticed how obvious it is in this strip. My baaaaaaad.

Of course DT's running off. Atticus isn't going to be brash, and we have to have ~some~ character that's stupidly heroic.

Actually I always find it rather fun to run towards people talking about murder. You generally get to meet a genuinely insane person, get into a rather fun fight, sometimes you even get to save a life. Granted you yourself have to be slightly nuts to do so... But I am... so that last line doesn't really count.

Murder I actually thought it was Atticus talking about how they ended up killing the Caterpie. However, I went back after reading this page and saw that the word bubble wasn't pointing to him. :/

Role reversal... That's a bit of a change in role. People who get Charmander as their first pokemon are usually the type to run towards the people talking about murder and drag their pokemon along.

Who says he cares? Option 1: Follow the fire-breather into possible danger. Option 2: Run away into forest full of angry Caterpie with crushed, burned Caterpie remains on his shoes and no fire-breather. At least one person who doesn't want to do anthing (too?) wrong, or potential encounter with Squishy's relatives. Difficult, but most people'd be with Atty on this one.

The "we" and "us" along with other elements of the conversation make me think that they might not be talking about Atticus and the Caterpie... My immediately resulting reaction is something to the effect of "OH GOD HAS SOMEONE MURDERED GEORGE NOOOOO."

Dragonthing, you fool! If you run towards the ethical discussion, the entire comic might get caught in a situational gravity well and never escape! The entire thing could fall into a grimdark hole!

...oh, and murder might happen. That'd suck too.

I disagree Atticus. How will adventure happen if you run away from the action?

If you see an Angel fighting a Succubus, do you run from the fight, or jump headlong into it?

If you run from the fight you may just yet live to see a long life, but you'll never know WHY that happened or which team won or who was in the right.

If you join the fray and take sides, not only will the above possibly be answered but you'll also be a part of a story in and of itself!

So which would you pick? Flee and live a normal life? Or take up arms in the realm of fantasy?

For a minute there... At first, I thought that Dragonthing was talking to Atty! That would have been a nice twist...Dragonthing used to be so obedient until Atticus let him do his own thing, so I find it comical that Atty suddenly thinks he can order DT around.

Though I like how Atticus now seems to care for him :3 It's cute how he calls him by his name so often now. Also, the "we" part makes it feel like they're a team now.
