Seems like I'm not the only one to get emotional over the end of the Pokémon LP series (which hopefully is just a temporary hiatus). The response I've had so far suggests some actual tears were dropped. I'd say it's overkill because I'm not worth it, but at the same time I really appreciate you guys getting into my work.
Something else that I feel the need to point out: as someone in the comments to the finale told me, Something Awful has a rule where no game under three months old may be LPed, which at first glance ruins my plans for starting Gray the moment I can get everything to work. When it comes to that, I would like to point out three things:
1. Gray will be nothing more than a revamped version of a game that will have been out for over two years by then.
2. Main series games' international releases happen about six months after the Japanese releases, so maybe that counts?
3. I'm a freelance LPer, with no link to Something Awful or any other group, and I intend to keep it that way. Proper etiquette can go screw itself. If someone wants to whine about me supposedly "jumping the gun", they'll find me ready.
