This series, Gift of the Protector, is part of an ongoing Pokemon saga which I hope you enjoy. The following is the story of Edge, a Gardevoir by the name of Sana, and a mysterious girl from a researcher's convoluted memories.
Chronological Order (Main Sequence): Arc 1: Fractured Unity -- Arc 2: Pristine Embrace -- Arc 3: Radiant Heart
Side Stories: Blossoming Eloquence and Another Late Night are the background stories of the two main characters, recommendation is to read during Arc 2: Pristine Embrace
The other two side stories, Sometimes It Hurts and especially Snow Angels, come with a recommendation to read during and after Arc 3: Radiant Heart, respectively.
Snow Angels in particular is an important piece of the conclusion.
Related Fiction: Heaven's Slice:
The sequel to Gift of the Protector is Heaven's Slice, written under the pen name Solarune. It is a brand-new, original storyline, and actively being updated with recent chapters. You may find it on FFN or on AO3. Heaven's Slice is an independent tale, which may be enjoyed at any time. Reading Protector will expand upon the universe therein, yet if you wish to read my most contemporary work there are no disadvantages to starting with the sequel. Heaven's Slice assumes the fresh perspective of a type and species that naturally prey on psychics, such as the Ralts line.
