Welcome to The Night Grows Pale: A Sun & Moon Dual Nuzlocke

Dual Protagonists, one from Alola and one from Johto, embark on the Island Challenge together. When long-time internet friends Makani and Azophi finally meet, it feels like life is taking a turn for the better. Along with Makani’s brother Hau and the mysterious runaway Lillie, the two begin on a journey full of Island Trials, personal trials, and ghosts both old and new. On the way they make friends, enemies, and frenemies with a variety of original and previously established characters. Action, humor, drama, shade, and good old-fashioned shenanigans ensue. The Night Grows Pale features a diverse cast, explores queer themes and identity, as well as the traditional nuzlocke themes of responsibility, loss and finding friends in unexpected places. Warning: This comic is not super dark and edgy or anything, but the protagonists are 17-21, so stuff will come up ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. The comic contains themes of abuse, self-loathing, violence, memes, drug references, sexual references, Nebby never getting in the bag, and colorful language. Updates: Saturdays

The Return!

us: *disappear for three months without any updates or announcements*

people: *think this comic is dead*


Hey, so, we are very sorry about disappearing for so long but happy to announce NGP will be returning on this Saturday, May 11!!

Why the big unplanned hiatus? Just was just a long series of events that kept the both of us busy and wouldn’t be super interesting to recount in detail, so I’ll skip over most of it. What matters is that almost everything besides the timely output of pages has turned out well.
- Everyone is in better health now than the last time we checked in.
- Our living space is much improved and we are enjoying it immensely.
- Tree now has a much better art workspace and a more comfortable job with steady hours.
- Beryl just finished the penultimate draft of the script for island one and sent it off for a final round of beta reading.
That’s pretty great!

So, what can you all expect from NGP’s return?
- Well, we would like to go back to a page a week but since Tree isn’t starting her new work schedule until Friday we aren’t sure how well that will actually shake out. BUT a page every other week at least.
- Our first silly little bonus comic is finished and will be going up on the 18th! We’re planning on making these dumb meme comics a somewhat regular thing so look forward to more stupid shenanigans I guess??
- Remember that Q&A? Probably not, but the answers are coming! They’re written up already and Tree just wants to do some more doodles to accompany them so they should be up on the 18th or 25th.

Lastly, I just wanted to assure y'all that even if we stall out or move on from the comic end of this project, the story of NGP isn’t going anywhere. We have a rough draft of the script all the way to the League, a very decent chunk of which is in the second draft or better. So even if somewhere down the line we decide to put the comic aside, we will put the rest of the story up for y’all as a scriptlocke or storylocke. It’s already there and we love it and we really want to share it with you.

Thanks for sticking with us so far!

Back from hiatus!

We’re back folks! Sorry about that unexpectedly long hiatus. Life just be like that sometimes. But our schedules should be a lot more open in the coming months so we will try to jump right back in to our once a week update schedule.

We’re still working on the answers to all the asks you sent in and those will hopefully be up next week!

And in case you didn’t know, we got nominated for Most Improved Comic Run in the Nuzforums Extravaganza this year! We’re so surprised and proud to be in the running. So thank you to everyone who nominated us and get over there and vote if you haven’t already!
(For those of you not on the Nuzlocke Forums, you do need an account to vote since it's a forum event.)

Short Hiatus

Hey all! First I want to thank everyone who sent in stuff for the Q&A. It was a lot of fun and Tree and I are drafting up answers now. But between me having to leave town for a week and Tree working 6 days a week, we've had no time whatsoever for the comic. But I'm back now and Tree's overtime shouldn't last into November, so we shouldn't be gone long. Anyway sorry for disappearing and we should be back soon!

Short Hiatus

Once again a lot of stuff came up this week and the page is not done. Next week is going to be super hectic for us and the week after we will both be away and pretty much totally unable to work on the comic, so we have decided to put NGP on hiatus until June. That should give us time to catch up and get back on schedule. In the meantime, please enjoy this painting of Lugia that Tree did. Why Lugia? It's Tree's favorite pokemon and she felt like it.

See you all June 2nd!
