[COMPLETED]Manic's Dark Stars; Update #41: Epilogue

There is much to do.


Is this thing on? Oh, I never know how to...does the light mean it's on or off?

It's on? Great! Oh, um, let's see.

Hi! I'm really hoping to get chosen for this season, so...here's me! Um...I've put in a whole lot of work, done a lot of studying - but not too much! - and I think I'd do a really good job.

Let's see, a little about myself. I live in Twinleaf with my mom, I'm going to be fourteen years old in about two weeks...just in time for the announcement! I get mostly A's and B's in class. I'm a really hard worker, and I've been in drama club since I was old enough to join! Also, I've been a huuuuuge fan since I was old enough to watch, and it would mean so much to me to be chosen to participate this year!

Also, my mom participated in some contest stuff a few years back. I don't know if that's useful to you, but every little bit helps, right?

Anyway, I guess that's it. Oh! Wait, one more thing! I have the best outfit ever already chosen to go, if you'll let me. I mean, I don't know if there's a uniform or anything, but it couldn't hurt to include a bit of my personal style, right? Check it out!

Anyway, my name is Sophie, and this has been my tape. Hope to hear my name soon!

Now, let's just turn this thing off, and-

Well that was fast! Guess it's Sinnoh this time, but what version? Probably not Diamond or Pearl but it's likely not plain Platinum again, so which hack?

The title and intro make me think that Contests might have a more major role than in other Nuzlocke runs. I agree that Manic might wind up the starter in this one, and I also bet that if so, he might wind up in a few contests himself. And it would be hilarious.

Also, dat Rule 7.

I call Manic being one of 3 things.
1) Either related to or best friends with Sophie.
2) Judge in the competition.
3) A PokeManic.

So I'd say people were right, and Manic will be the starter, wich will be pretty interesting...
Aaand if it is something else, I have no clue what it would be^^

Anyway, I can't wait for more!

Well Der Gnizalb was awesome but it sucks that it's over, I guess it's going to be a while till the next run... OH NO WAIT.

Oh my God yes to Manic being the starter, would definitely give new meaning to the starter death rule.

I think I'm going to go crazy speculating over rule 7.

Hey, that's fast. I'm guessing this is Obsidian, and if it is I look forward to it a lot! I do if it's another hack as well, of course. Good luck!

(also, if Manic is indeed the starter, I can't wait to see the contests)

That is one quick turnaround! I can't wait to see how Sophie will play out. Especially if Manic is (or isn't?) a Pokemon. Who knows?

Also, Rule 7. 5confuse10me. Knock 'em dead, Manic!

I didn't think you'd start a new run so soon, but I'm not complaining. Wonder what role Manic will take here? Being the starter sounds as plausible as any theory

Manic can be anything that is needed in a world, huh? Maybe he's really gonna be a block of cheese? :yay:
In all seriousness (okay, maybe 90% seriousness), for me it also seems he's gonna be a starter (hey, plot-enforced Persistent Starter and Starter Death rules. I feel like he had it planned since the very beginning and that's why all the runs had those two rules, so it wouldn't seem odd and unusual enough to deduce something... Yes, I'm overthinking it)... but it would be really funny for him to be just a random PokÚmon somewhere in the future.
...or maybe he'll be a voice in PokÚdex? No, he probably won't be Self-Aware in this world.
Damn, nothing seems more (or at least just as) plausible than Manic being a starter. And that's frustrating. Because that strengthens the feeling that it's gonna be something totally different.

...or maybe he's gonna be a random NPC who gives the protagonist one of the HMs and that's his role? That would be so twisted it actually seems to be a valid theory (at least to me. But I'm not a very sane person).

Wait, that means we have the first Manic that does not have Nuzlocke.

Rule 7? No idea. Maybe my randomness module will start working when we actually see Manic in the run. The rule is said to activate during an event that happens more than once. Maybe it's defeating a leader. Maybe catching a new member. Maybe entering a new town (...like in Spirit Electrum?).

Good thing lurking isn't that time consuming, I can follow without any trouble. Ability changed into Anticipation.

I'm jumping on the Manic Starter bandwagon, but Rule 7's name, 'Denied!' makes me think that some blocking on catching's going to happen.
