If you're scared, I'm on my way
After about a year and a half of saying I wanted to do an Alpha Sapphire run, it's finally time. Welcome to my fourth run, and I hope you enjoy it!

To begin, there are a few things I'd like to explain about how I plan to write this run. These will be covered in the "run notes" tab below, and I recommend you read it before the rules or prologue.

Hey, cool. I have been a preety much silent reader of thee (even when the runs were finished) and I have decided to stop by. So, preety cool. Huh.
We've walked a long way from home.
Am I still another one?

May the legend live on.

Been so excited for this run wahoo!

Apollo sounds like a hoot. The switch to dramatic narration definitely suits him and I can imagine will make some fun situations in the future. Suddenly, dramatic fabulous battle against Archie.

Also, I love the song you picked. Definitely sets the tone for the run. As I've mentioned in Discord, I totally suggest this song. Or this one apparently.

Good luck!

Huh. I'm intrigued to see where this is going. Apollo's a bit of a space case, eh?

To be completely honest, I'm not much into the musical interludes, myself. I mean, I'm not really a fan of lyrical songs in general so it's just... a bit awkward for me I guess. BUT I WILL TOLERATE THIS FOR YOU GOGOAT-KUN. That being said, if you happen to need any instrumentals at any point, I'm your gal. :v:

I was genuinely sitting in my chair grinning when I was reading the intro as the music was playing - You are starting on a high note, good sir!

A protagonist with an actual functioning family? That's actually pretty darn refreshing!


Not quite sure about what kind of music you want for these chapters, but this one is a personal favorite for emotional moments.
I'm a sucker for this one for a feelgood-segment.

Aaaaand leaving this right here because that one always makes me grin :v:

Do you hear the toll of the bell?

Ohhhh I really enjoyed this prologue piece. The rules seem really interesting and I'm all for the incorporation of music in runs, because music is an important part of life for me and I love seeing and hearing the music that's important for other people!

Apollo is an interesting character. I love the switch into narrator voice, it really makes him feel imaginative and bright. The atmosphere of this run feels so nice. Maybe when I stop being shy and brain dead I'll send some music I enjoy your way!

I'm super excited to see how contests come into play. When The Hoenn segment of the show came out and May got into contests I'll admit that I was always really excited to watch those, so I'm excited to see how these get portrayed in the context of a run. :D

I'm excited to read this run and to see what songs you'll use in your run. Speaking about songs:
'Everybode Wants to Rule The World' by Tears For Fears, it's about wanting to rule over the world, it could fit with Team Aqua.

Sadly, I only have one more (clichÚ) song idea.
'Eye Of The Tiger', because Brawly.

I will post ideas when inspiration strikes me.

Slowly, but surely, replacing picture links.
Cool to see another run from you. This already seems like a much more lighthearted run.

The focus of music and contests. Interesting.
Photobucket has stopped hosting pictures for free. I'm slowly, but surely, replacing picture links. This includes runs I've already completed so please bare with me. I think I have found a bypass for Photobucket. Sort of... EDIT: There seems to be a Add-on for Chrome to view Photobucket pictures. Seems to work fine for me, but you choose whether it's worth it.

AAAAAAAAA!~!!!!1!!!!!!!!!111 8DDDDDDDD

I'm so stoked for this run- I'm already loving Apollo and the characters so far!

I've only read Mack's live reaction black 2 nuzlocke and I was torn between being upset he didn't like one of my favorite games, amazed at his editing skills and loving his narrative and Pokemon characters.

Some music suggestions? Um, Human by Christina Perri, Safe and Sound by Taylor Swift, Try Everything by Shakira, This is War by Thirty Seconds To Mars, This Will Be The Day/ I May Fall/ I Burn/ From Shadows/ Time To Say Good-bye Caffine by Cassandra Lee and Lamar Hall of RWBY Rooster Teeth and I can't remember any other good ones ^^;

Also, I vote Treecko as Apollo's starter if that means anything :)

Yay I caught a run from the beginning!

I can't wait to see how the contests play out. I seriously suck at them so seeing a master at work will be nice :)

Oh, wow! You're starting this already, that's fantastic! I love what you're doing with Contests, especially just being in them.

Life's always going to be a struggle. Sometimes the world is too much, and especially in Hoenn, you'll find yourself swallowed in the sea (Parade of Lights reminds me strongly of Coldplay)

If you want something a little fun, there's Weapon of Choice.

Ohhh I am definitely looking forward to this. I loved Luminary but it's going to be fun reading something a bit lighter (I assume).

I've never really done any contests and most runs seem to ignore them so I'm really interested to see you do them.

As for song suggestions... oh boy. I have an absolute TON (and that's just the one's I've come up with in a few minutes). I'll try and keep it to just 3 suggestions per comment but tell me if it's getting excessive.

alright, how many internal organs did you have to sell to get that capture system

This looks awesome! I love thinking of music that might go along with my runs, so this is right up my alley.

Uh, a song I like is Two Birds by Regina Spektor. It might be good if you have one cautious character and one adventurous character.

This looks awesome! I love contest and the remakes gave people a chance to love them all over again.
And, while Huntress Wizard kinda took my inital recommendation, how about Fine on the Outside by Priscilla Ahn . It kind of reminds me of Wally, yeah know? Also, anything by Queen. I love Queen and they have a song for everything. I can't wait to read it all!

Woohoo! Finally, a Gogoat run that I can read from the start! :)

Apollo seems (is already) a tremendous character especially his narrations. It's really fun to read.

The importance of music in this run is well, awesome! Won't suggest any music for now, but I'm really looking forward to this.
