omg this chapter was certainly full of action! Everything turned really not like I was expecting everything to happen. I feel bad for the poor rocket guy who got beat up. I feel bad for May who really got injured, for Leaf who is almost dead, for Trip who in the end wouldn't even be in this situation if he stayed in Unova, for Silver who everyone hates even though he didn't knew about the news . And Ash...who hates himself so much right now, that poor guy. Everything ended up in a mess, and I just am speechless. I wasn't expecting all of this and I must say bravo! You certainly wrote everything so well!

I had a feeling something bad would happen to Iris. Though, I am glad that they found a solution and that they all found a place to stay for a while. omg the reunion between Zoey and Candice was so touching! And I laughed because it is exactly how Zoey predicted the scene to happen chapters earlier lmao. I like that Drew is the one who makes the other laughs with his remarks. It's just a nice inclusion to the group and I find it touching that everyone seems to appreciate it. And after learning about his backstory, It is sad to think that all this is related to Team Rocket...

I loved what Juan said to Wallace. It was true and he said it without sounding mean or condescending. It really felt like it came from his heart and for the good of Wallace. I also loved to see Steven interact with his old friends. I was so sweet and touching. Really felt like a meeting with old friends you haven't seen in a long time. And finally, Brock got a number from a lady! Glad it was Lucy too! I was speechless to learn what Archer did at the end...that was unexpected.

I gotta say love the little detail that Ash, without a second thought, give his hoodie to Dawn. I always sort of imagined their friendship being like a brother sister of some sort. And I just thought it was really cute. I know Ash would probably do this for anyone who asked, this is why he is such a sweet guy! I can't believe Ursula is actually helping! I am glad to see her included in the fic, but from all the characters I imagined helping them, I had to admit Ursula was probably the last one in my mind lmao. Glad she didn't turn to be awful like I thought she would! And she pulled such a good acting performance. Ursula, I am proud of you! However, as much as the trip to Sinnoh interests me, I am worried about Iris! If she is handling the cold that badly in Johto, It sounds worse in Sinnoh. Hope things won't go bad for her.(though, 15 F is really not that cold of a temperature yet.)

yikes, Lance really put himself in big trouble and drama. I totally understand Reggie and Solidad's and all the other's reaction to this. It sounds like he is hiding so many stuff from everyone. And it just makes me wonder about Lance's and Leaf's relationship and past. Drama started again in the group and I can't help but to smile at how Paul tried to avoid the situation by making it painfully worse and awkward on him and everyone lmao (not that I am that surprised). In some way, I am interested that Trip knows about the Ikari (not so secret) kiss. I feel like Trip hasn't really bonded with anyone, and I am wondering if it's going to start some kind of bond with Paul (or conflict lmao it could easily go this way). Finally, I am super happy that Looker gets involved in the case!

That last line was absolutely funny. Perhaps the best way to end the chapter and situation hahaha. I am glad that Paul is getting that much development. And I have to admit the Ikari moments made me smile. You wrote it so naturally!

That means ASH HAS A BRO OMG! I am curious to know where all this will lead to! Part of me really hopes that they can get along! It would be the most interesting. Also, I have to say my favourite part was the part where Paul walked the gang in town. It was nerve-wrecking for them and Leaf being so angry was such an intense moment. I feel bad for Paul to take all the blame, I wonder if this going to stain Leaf's trust in him in the future.

I am happy that Drayden is there, caring for Iris so much and he that he knew or had a suspicion over the conspiracy that is going on. I am surprised that he is Lance's father though, but intrigued in what this will bring to the table. When I was reading a few chapters earlier all the families mourning the death of the gang, I was surprised to not see anyone for Iris. But now I am reassured that Drayden is smart and cares for Iris. I was absolutely shocked by Paul standing up for Ash. Though when I read the chapter title, I was in disbelieve lmao I thought it would be a fight/conflict between maybe Paul and Drew since the tension between them grew quite rapidly. I am happy to read that he actually argued/fight against Leaf, that everyone agreed with him and I was super shocked to read that he lost. I had to admit I underestimated Leaf, but nonetheless, they are still going to Mt. Silver?! That was almost as shocking as learning that Paul stood up for Ashy-boy.

These are really touching moments and it is nice (yet sad at the same time) to read how everyone is reacting to the New Years. I loved the petalburg family, it was one of my faves. Just Max thinking about starting his journey in Johto to beat Clair and see his sister was such a nice detail. I for one always liked the boy, and I found this to be so touching and sweet. I also loved how Oak ended up visiting Delia. I always liked their relationship in the anime (no matter if it's romantic or platonic. Just their interaction is really touching). And always thought that both of them bonded over missing Ash and Gary or feeling alone in the quiet town of Pallet, and I was happy to see that this detail is shown in the fic.

I was worried so much about Trips' mother and I am glad that she is alive at least...but I got a sad feeling that what Cynthia revealed to her will end up so badly...I hope that I am wrong, because I feel so bad for Cynthia who just wanted to help her and I still feel bad for Trip's mother (though, what Steven said is true sometimes "you can't help those who are unwilling to help themselves". I have seen people in such situations reacting this way before). This fic just makes me care so much about everyone I wouldn't normally care really about in the anime lmao

Gotta say, love the bickering between Gary and Leaf. Hope it continues!
Aww, Brock feels so guilty about not coming with Ash. I wonder what will happen with him and I hope he will be able to go back to his family soon.
OMG! What Alder is saying makes me feel so bad for Trip's mother. I am worrying about her so much more than how I probably should, but I can't help it. I hope things will be okay for her.
Seeing all these characters mourn their loved ones is so heartbreaking! I thought Candice was sad, but Chili was much sadder for me to read.
But I love how soon everyone in the Ash Connection is arguing. Even Cilan agrees with the silent game and I laughing so much! And then Barry talks and I couldn't help to smile. It is such a typical thing he would do.
| Guest chapter 10 . 11/10/2017
The scene between Reggie and Paul made me aww so much! Paul and Reggie definitely need more moments like that and I am absolutely happy that they leave in such terms.
Lance thinks of Leaf a his protégé/kid? Interesting. I am wondering about Leaf's past and how she meet Lance. Once again, I love Gary's speech to Leaf. I just really like that he is so smart and can easily see what is happening. I am suspicious of Adalet (but I am thinking that you probably planned us to be suspicious of him lmao) and I hope for the sake of Ash and gang that politics will not come to bite Lance.

The conversation between Zoey and Candice was really sad. it is something to see Zoey being so sad in the situation but having to keep a smile and not say anything even though she absolutely wants to. Getting news right after the holidays that a beloved one died is so heartbreaking, and it isn't hard to understand how all these poor kids are feeling about the situation. However, the thing I adored about this chapter is Gary speech to Ash and Misty about the G-men never finding Giovanni. Gary is so clever and smug, he revealed the true about the G-Men. They are powerful and clever and good people, but they are not as proactive as they probably should be. And Gary noting that this way, made it so obvious to me that everything isn't 100% secure and anything can happen and go bad, no matter how much they try. Misty not commenting and knowing about it, makes me wonder how many other kids realized this as well. The last sentence about Iris, Cilan and Dawn not commenting, kinda makes me think that they are also having some doubts. It is courageous that they are going with the plan anyway. The second thing I love about this chapter was the part with Cilan climbing the tree and Iris. There is something about that scene that depicts their friendship/relationship so perfectly.

Delia is such a sweet mother and nice person, seeing her depressed and in tears like that is so heartbreaking. I hope she is finding comfort and friendship in the other parents and adults there. I could see her bound with Johanna since they seem to have some similar part of their past. I just want her to have friends so she wouldn't be so lonely lmao I also adore how everyone know that Drew is head over heals for May...except for May herself. Even Paul -who doesn't give a damn about anyone ever- trying to explain it to her made me laugh. The scene between Misty and Ash was heartwarming as well. The end with the plan of the bus crash shocked me. I wasn't thinking they were going to get to a plan THAT serious.

Aww Delia considering Brock like a son of hers is just so sweet and cute! It definitely warmed my heart! I kinda see Delia as everyone's mom here. She is definitely motherly and so nice with everyone. The reveal of this chapter quite shocked me, I didn't think it was going this way, I am so interested in what is going to happen.
