Latin translations by Shawn, with the help of Latin Discussion forum.

Whew. This episode was a pain to do, but I'm glad I decided to do it. I'm sorry for all the angst lately, though.

Also, because this episode is probably confusing or vague due to new characters and not much dialogue, any kind of comments/questions/interpretations/theories would be much appreciated!

A glasswork sitting in the palm of a small hand
If that jewel is celebrated as "happiness"...
What kind of mark did the atrocity of that night leave on the era--
What kind of scars were left on them?

Great art and great adaptation of the story ; w ; though an interpretation/theory would be great to see but it was kinda plot twisting that those kids from the past look like Pi and N ; A ;

Reply Lady Darkrina, May 8th, 2014, 4:51 am

Mmm by the looks of things, it seems like N and Pi used to be friends in the past.

I really love this plot twist you've made ^^

Reply eworm, May 8th, 2014, 4:53 am

Wow, that's different.

So if I got it right:

Neverending war, Zekrom and Reshiram have had enough;

The dragons try to forcibly end the humans' fight, killing many people in the process;

Not sure what the musketeers are doing, helping the dragons or saving the people... Probably the former, since they're said not to like humans very much.

One of the kings' daughter is killed, her brother receives the Light Stone after the dragons... seal themselves?

I thought they were sealed? You know, by people?

Anyway, the brother is Pi's ancestor, which is a nice twist, since usually it's N who's portrayed as related to the kings (though he might be too).

Am I close at all?

@eworm: I can say that it's certainly impossible for a Pokemon to be a descendant of a human king lol

(it's ok, I get it, the whole Pi and Pea thing is confusing I suppose)

@pipipipi: Oh wow, that's a stupid mistake ^^ I was typing in a hurry (and I'm still Hoenn High), sorry about that.

wth do I need comment title I am not really sure what is going on.
ON part one, I am guessing the tall guy is one of the two brothers that discovered Unova. The blonde kid and the brunette kid might be his children.
and then he lead hia army to war again, with his brother, maybe? but then Zekrom and Reshiram are fed up with the war and decide to start killing the humans. and then sword justice appear and kill the brunette kid and some soldier.
teh blonde one manage to survive and with his remaining army surround Rehiram and Zekrom. And then the two dragon retreats..... that is what I thought. poor Reshiram and Zekrom then... they are awakened only to be used in the same conflict as in the past...

Amazing great art, i'm constantly waiting for updates had this site bookmarked and checking everyday... i love the plot... looking forward to the next, and im definitely gonna see this through the end... :)

^_^ Well, I'm back and I'm so glad to see the updates. these pages are really good and I'm happy to see them. It's something to look forward too after a long day of work and even more since finals are coming. :)

Reply SkadiErendra, May 10th, 2014, 9:27 am

My theory:
The kids are siblings, children of the first Reshiram "trainer". Both Reshiram and Zekrom got tired of the war and they gone on a rampage, the humans felt betrayed by them so they tried to run away into the wild, but the three legendaries didn't let them in as they were protecting wild Pokemon from people. The humans then returned to the figting dragons, led by the son of the king. Reshiram and Zekrom saw that humanity finally stopped killing one another, like, they united to do something about the dragons? Anyway, they decided their role is over and they sealed themselves/fell into slumber in the forms of the Dark and Light Stones.
All that story was actually Reshiram's dream which Pi saw coz she kiiinda reminds him of the girl from the past? That's my wild guess :P

Reply Poke'slash, May 10th, 2014, 4:42 pm

Finally got to this point! Read all the pages so far. Can't wait for more.
The plot..oh my god, the plot. At first I thought this would be kinda like every other Black Nuzlocke comic, but you totally took it and made it your own while keeping the general plot of the game.

Reply Poke'slash, May 10th, 2014, 4:45 pm

@SkadiErendra: I interpreted the last bit as the king sealing away the dragons out of grief for his daughter, and Reshiram, realizing what he(?) and Zekrom did, allowed themselves to be sealed away.
But I like your theory.

Just sayin', Mea Culpa means sorry too.

Reply pipipipi, May 14th, 2014, 3:55 am

@Cheese: I'll need Shawn to confirm this, but I think "mea culpa" means closer to "it's my fault", and that's not very fitting.

To everyone, all your wild mass guessing has been super cool! It's interesting what you guys get from no text at all :'D I'm sorry if I don't confirm/deny much, to avoid spoilers. (but pls do not hesitate to send more theories, y'all are awesome) I'll just confirm for now those kids are brother and sister, not friends.

Reply Shadow Raikou, May 20th, 2014, 6:04 am

All I have for now is that Reshiram showed Pi all that.

Also, N and Pi might be related to each other, and both might be related to the past heroes.

The musketeers might be defending Unova as a reigon. Basically, from both Humans and the dragons.

Updates? I just read through this whole comic, and damn is it good. was wondering when you are going to be updating next? Or when you think your current hiatus will be over?

Reply Zazzy, August 2nd, 2014, 6:11 am

*furiously clicks the 'next' button*

Reply Shawn (Guest), August 14th, 2014, 9:56 pm

@pipipipi: You're correct. "Mea culpa" literally means "my fault." "Me paenitet" translates to "it displeases me" or "it causes me to repent." A rougher translation would be the English turn-of-phrase "it pains me." Hence in this context, "me paenitet" is the better phrase.

Reply Shawn (Guest), August 14th, 2014, 10:05 pm

To throw my hat in the ring... I already guessed that the two kids were brother and sister; the scenes made it unlikely that they were just friends. It seems that I'm going to have to agree with Velink and SkadiErendra in that the dragons, tired of the war, decided to go on a rampage--though I don't think that they deliberately targeted humans. The Swords of Justice stopped the fleeing humans from going into the forest, somehow leading to Past-Pi's death. Past-N was shocked at what he saw as Reshiram's betrayal, and the dragons fled. I still have a few questions (did Past-Pi really die? Why did the dragons turn into stones at THAT particular point in time?), but that's what I'm coming up with at this point.

Latecomer here! Well, not exactly, since I'd been lurking since sometime last year. And then I fell out of reading.

I came back today and binge-read from the beginning and have to say it's just as marvelous as I remembered. I really hope you're able to come off hiatus sometime soon, because this Nuzlocke is fantastic. I'm quite anxious to find out what happens next!
