"My land is bare of chattering folk;
the clouds are low along the ridges,
and sweet's the air with curly smoke
from all my burning bridges."
-Dorothy Parker


BURNING BRIDGES
Being the eclectic misadventures of a misanthropic ex-policewoman and her best friend (who happens to be a Squirtle) as they discover the true value of family, responsibility, and friendship on a life-changing journey through scenic Ireland.

No, seriously, dude, that’s our premise.

Plot

Hey there, everyone! I'm Nicky!

I'm Ask Cheren on tumblr, and Wanlingnic on Deviantart (and you can read it on dA here). You can find even more art for the comic in my personal tumbr!

So... While I've done a Nuzlocke before, this is my first documented story, so I'm not too sure if I goof up or anything. :T Bear with me - I promise I'll tell you a good story. I also promise not to half-ass anything, and that means updates will be very, VERY slow.

Squirtle with Feraligatr designs? Said Squirtle sounding like a badass from the beginning?

The plot sounds fantastic already. And yes I like your art style and how good it looks.

You have my full attention.

Oh hey, I still remember this from dA! I'm happy to see you've finally started!

And I think this is the first run I've seen where Giovanni is a good and openly loving father to Silver :V

PFFFFT, You have no idea how glad I am to see you interested in my run. c: Your stuff's hilarious!

And, come to think of it, you're right. o3o Giovanni's a pretty bad fanon-dad.

Aww, thank you! Giovanni's relationship with Silver's a pretty important plot point (Moira's looking for her own father, who wasn't quite as loving). And, oh, wow, I really hope this lives up to your expectations! :D

Wait, how did people know that's Giovanni? I'd never have guessed if I looked at the page for an hour.

Then again, I probably would look at it for an hour, too. This is beautiful art, and the story starts off interestingly. I'll be keeping track of this.

Your guess is as good as mine. o3o I wasn't actually trying to make him look too stereotypical and, honestly, I wasn't expecting many people to actually recognise him - maybe it's because Silver called him 'dad'?

Thank you so much, by the way! It means a lot to me. c:

Really? Thank you so much! I really wanted this to read like a webcomic, so cleaning up the lineart and colouring every panel's a real chore - but it's all worth it when I hear something like that from you. c:

(Ugh, I'm double-posting again. I'm so sorry.)

But, hey, at least there's an update! Click here for page 2!

In which we finally get to see Moira - suffering 90's hair syndrome. (She also smiles just barely more often than Kristen Stewart does in the Twilight films.)

I'm sorry for the poor quality; I know I promised not to give you guys shoddy work, but I've been hard-pressed for time lately. The next page, I promise, will be better - and it'll have some ACTUAL Nuzlocking in it! Won't that be nice? *shot*

You remembered Falkner was a part of the police. I like his characterisation, who I assume to be surge and the other girl. But still, there's something off.... like where Donahue is!

Also, group hugs are never appreciated.

Moira be a killjoy :<

Falkner also looks like he could be a vocalist/rhythm guitar player in some semi-obscure boy pop band somewhere.

I only remember Falkner being part of the police in Pokemon Adventures...with Surge being a Rocket. Ah, well. Your art drew me in, and I was awfully curious about your run for quite some time-glad to see it's finally up, even if it did take me a few days to notice. Lookin' forward to seeing how this all unfolds.

How sweet. Group hug for the ex-officer of the law.

Say, a pokemon police game would make an excellent game!

Eheh, yes! I love it when some canon explains that Gym Leaders have another life that doesn't involve living in the gym 24/7/. xD Falkner having a job was so adorable, I kept it here.

Whoops, I'm sorry, I should've cleared it up! The blue-haired girl's a Jenny, and the boy with the pikachu's actually an original character - Surge is much older here, with kids of his own, and maybe just a little younger than Giovanni.

Oh, my! You just quoted my friend word-for-word! When I said Moira has 90's hair, she said Falkner had teen idol boyband hair syndrome.

Checking Bulbapedia, you're right! Falkner's job only appears in the manga. It's largely fanon-adopted, though - I didn't even realise it was Pokespe-exclusive! - there's a great ask blog on tumblr called Ask-Falkner, and he's answered several questions as a policeman. I just decided it'd be fun to roll with it, given Moira's job.

The plot more or less acts as an origin story for several GSC characters - you'll see it turn Falkner into a Gym Leader, as well as turn Silver into his usual grumpypants self. (Also, without giving too much away, some Gen 4 characters, like Volkner, are in here too.)

I won't be sticking purely to the manga canon, though - so Surge isn't a Rocket, but he's not a cop, either. xD The fellow with the Pikachu is actually an original character called Verne (as a joke, I based him on the blonde elf from UBOS, but later realised that character was called Gus. Verne's the redhead, apparently. *bricked*). The Pikachu's called Jules.

Oh, gosh, you're right! I'd love to play something like that. (The closest thing we have to it's Pokemon Ranger, right?)

Bounty-hunting? Seriously? D:

The last MD game I had was Red - I can't even imagine how awesome that series has become with the advent of something that mature! Was it fun?
