Nuzlocke White: Extra Comic 20 by ky-nim Nuzlocke White: Extra Comic 20 by ky-nim

EDIT: Alright you might be wondering why I re-submitted this again but hear me out

This is that one comic that I really wanted to fix for a while because this is a foreshadowing extra comic to Nina's backstory, which unfortunately will not be drawn out in detail until towards the end of the Iccirus City arc. 

I have been made aware that this comic has been the source of contention because Nina initially came off as being complaining about "oh poor me I'm so talented and good at everything" which was NOT the intention at all.

The main point of this comic was to show that the main reason for Nina's apprehension about her mother was due to the fact that she has many expectations thrown on her and as a result of this "pedestal treatment" she does get hurt (the details of this hurt I kept vague because that is going to be addressed). But the original version of this comic did make it seem like it so I had to edit out the details and text in the hopes that it doesn't come off that way. Yes, she does have talents that were inherited and it does make her a subject of jealousy (i.e. Extra Comic 17). But she isn't wangsting about that.

Hope that clears things up! FYI, you can still dislike and/or disagree with her character. I just want people to dislike/disagree a thing while knowing my intentions for the character, and not because you misinterpreted something idk

Based on some of those "Sue tests" Nina is a borderline Sue, a thing which won't be changing anytime soon but I MIGHT as well make her interesting to me :U

In case people didn't get this parent news: [link]

FYI: These are extra comics that did not make it onto my main White Nuzlocke comics but will be posted as some sort of omake/mini comic series. These will range from 1 panel to multiple, depending on my mood.

Protagonist - Nina
Rivals - Cheren and Bianca
Mystery Creeper - N

Actually, I really like Nina a lot because she seems to have a lot of the same problems that I do. Like her, a lot of things come easily for me, which makes other believe that I don't have to work for it at all, which simply isn't true. I work my butt off. But others don't seem to get that. This has even led my parents and grandparents to hold me up on a pedestal for my siblings and cousins, which damages our relationships. I've asked them to stop, and some of them have, but others have not. I hate the wedges driven between me and others and while I don't want to stop being good at the things I like, I don't want others, especially those I love, to resent me for it.
All that to say, I don't think that Nina is as flawed as it sounds like people are making her. I think she's believable and relatable, and I hope to see more of her in the future.

Believable and relatable is all I need. No need to add weird flaws that don't make sense to her lol

And thank you!

Sue tests are useless garbage. For somebody inexperienced, they might be helpful, but for somebody who really understands characterization, they can be useless, and even inhibit good ideas for the sake of conforming to an obnoxious standard.

So... yeah. I fail to see how it wasn't clear that she took issue with the expectations. I LIKE her character. I thought it was cleverly done. Who actually said otherwise?
I agree with you. That said, I think that there are those that disagree with you and that's fine as well...

"...and to ignore my own personal anxieties and fears because I should be grateful because my problems were trivial."

Sorry to be anal, but it kinda threw me off.  I didn't know if you noticed or wanted to fix it or not but I think it would read easier if you took that second 'because' out of there.  Great work anyway  c:
