Alright. Thought I might share my thoughts about nuzlocking right now.

It feels like I don't really care about nuzlockes anymore. Whenever I see Nuzlocke-Challenge in my deviantWATCH, I try to pick randomly some nuzlockes there and read them. And I never really get into them because, well...they feel meaningless. It's like the authors's aren't even trying to make their nuzlocke shine in a way it would differ from few hundreds of other runs. And even if there's some cool idea, the author doesn't flesh out their idea enough well. Sure, there don't need to be any cool and epic stuff when you start your nuzlocke, but it's good to catch reader's interest early on so they'll surely follow you later. I think the nuzlocke community is kinda stuck: there's many nuzlockes to read, but there don't seem to be really any nuzlocke that would shake up the things. I, honestly, think :iconland-walker:'s Yellow nuzlocke would've been the one...if it hadn't been cancelled.
Nuzlocking doesn't really inspire me anymore as well. I've so far done the nuzlocke challenge on two games, and it really drains me. It's not fun. I don't wanna do it.
But I wanna remind you guys now about something: this doesn't mean I'm not going to the promised sequel someday. I WANT to do it. But now because it's a nuzlocke. I wanna do it because of the story and the characters. I want to share them with you. So no need to worry.

If any beginner nuzlocker is reading this, I suggest going through :iconyindragon:'s awesome nuzlocke guide RIGHT NOW. And use those hints she gives - there are many great hints that actually helps. I'm not saying this just because I did many things in my nuzlocke like she suggests - they're actually really helpful!

I only follow a handful of nuzlockes anymore - the amount of the nuzlockes I follow actively can be counted with the fingers I have in my right hand. And I don't even follow them because they're nuzlockes, but great comics overall. The amount of nuzlockes I'm following is decreased even more since some of them are cancelled (artists don't have enough time for nuzlockes etc). Right now my favorite nuzlocke is It's a hard life, and I think it's a prime example how to do an original nuzlocke. The art style - watercolors, which really stands out when there's so many nuzlockes done either digitally or with pencil. Characters - they all have different personalities, and they interact each other so well. Story - a young girl accidentally becomes a wanted outlaw. The whole thing is really well thought.

Ugh, I'm tired and my thought isn't flowing that well...but what I'm trying to say with this all: be innovative. Don't go the path maybe hundreds have went before you - create your own path, be imaginative! It's hard, but it really pays off in the end.

That's all I want to say.
