This is by far the longest chapter I have ever written of anything ever!
Wait, hold that thought.

Okay, that's weird. Apparently, Halloween RouteSaga is longer than this by another thousand words. Okay then.

Anyway, this is the single most important chapter in Legend of the Exile. As I said in Stream, it's not the last chapter, it's not even the climactic finale- that's coming up next chapter- but this is the crucial point for our heroes.

ALSO! I almost forgot. Special thanks to twiggycool and KiraNarcissism, as wel as Kira's tumblr friends, who took the time to proofread this, I can't thank you all enough!

Comments appreciated!

This story took me an entire day to read ;A; Mostly since I decided to start from the beginning. Arguably my favorite chapter, with so many things going on and revealed-- good job, love the work!

Glad you liked it! I know I say that a lot, but I'm partiularly glad because when I finished, I was afraid it would be too convoluted for anyone to make sense of. It seems to be going all right with everyone though ^^
Which character's struggle did you enjoy most?

Hmm, good question. I'm tied between Sparktail and Insyte; Sparktail mostly because he overcame his whole fears (and how Omega turned out to be a fake... jeez, didn't see that coming), and Insyte, I just love how Scar used simple colors and symbolism to deliver really strong messages (red pride, black lies), how it rang true, and how Insyte overcame those claims.

Ah yes, I figured that no one would guess Omega was a Zoroark since I had carefully avoided using any Pokemon after gen 4 so far. Part of the reason the hapter took so long was iguringout how to
Scar was, like Insyte himself, a random idea that worked amazingly well.

It took me an hour to read this (because im feeling sick and fatigued) but I loved every word of it!

Glad you loved it! I trust Insyte's solution was satisfying? :D //late response

This entire chapter was satisfying, right down to the core.
