Eight Down, Much, Much More to Go :D 09/10/2014

by Joe

Well, I think that wraps up Chapter 8! FINALLY!! :D

I decided to end the chapter here for a few reasons:

1) The major story streams (Philip’s family and Andrius on a boat, Greybane and crew to a new colony, the rest of the characters back at New Hammerston, and Joe) are all now at a point where they need a new chapter start.

2) I want to leave this super dragged out chapter behind and try harder for a fresh start myself :D

3) The more immediate and fun reason: an entire story recap! I usually do a chapter recap after every chapter but this time I’m going to revisit Chapter 1 to 8 and do the entire story. I hope new and old readers enjoy the summary but it’s really more to remind myself about the overall story to tie up loose ends and avoid more continuity issues as we move to Chapter 9 :D

Enjoy Scene 26 – “Hopeless Shadow”!

You can follow The Pocalypse on Facebook, Twitter for updates!

Oh, I just realized I haven’t announced this yet: I have two kids now! Girl this time :D Her name is Emiliana Rose, she was born about 6 weeks ago, and if she could, I’m sure she’d say hello!

Huzzah! Huzzah!

Glad to see another scene!

Somn that kinda surprises me, even though I’ve just realized it, is that even though a month or longer can come between scenes Joe still hasn’t lost his edge. They’re still awesome!

Which reminds me, I have some people I need to tell about the new scene.

BloodWolf7 on September 10, 2014 at 2:31 am

This scene was gold! And ideal as end of the chapter as well. I’m looking forward to see the story recap, I think we old readers need to refresh our memory as well :D (For example I can’t seem to remember who or what caused the fires we see in the last part of this scene in New Hammerstone… was it Victor when he faced the soldiers in Joe’s body perhaps?)

Also, congratulations for the baby! :D

holy %)§U”SJ

Robert on September 10, 2014 at 6:21 am

@francesco, yea, if i recall its Victor’s fight with the soldiers that caused majority of the damage to new hammerston D:

@Joe, Congratulations on the girl! :D

Khayne on September 10, 2014 at 8:55 am

noooooooooooo,too short,

Metallo on September 10, 2014 at 9:03 am

Welcome to hell Joe – boy and a girl is hard work,specially when it comes to toys!

WM28UK on September 10, 2014 at 11:21 am

Hmm, I’m so curious as to what happens next. Quite a sad chapter ending.
Also, I’m glad for the full story recap coming. Some of the details are getting fuzzy.

Otter on September 10, 2014 at 2:06 pm

A contextual change makes sense. Good luck, Joe, I hope it helps you get back into gear. :)

Good luck with your kids, too!

SkyeWint on September 10, 2014 at 2:21 pm

Great ending scene! Im super excited to see what happens to Rosa (Zombie-immune Vampire plant?) and what happens to all the rest of the characters! Keep it up and congrats on the girl!

Brenkie on September 10, 2014 at 4:28 pm

Congratulations Joe, on your new scene and your new baby girl.

shalidar13 on September 10, 2014 at 6:50 pm

Grats on the little one Joe hope shes healthy :D keep up the good work!

Nathan on September 11, 2014 at 4:15 am

Another great scene! :) by the way Joe, have you considered using patreon as a way to have some extra funds so we can have updates more frequently? :)

Firanai on September 11, 2014 at 7:49 am

@Khayne: I see, thank you!

@Firanai: a few scenes ago Joe was considering that option, so he might still be willing to do it in the future, but he said he wants to see if he manages to get back to a regular schedule with the updates first.

Francesco on September 11, 2014 at 8:34 am

Im sure i suggested a full story recap like Joe mentioned i’ve only just remembered,that mean he listened? Yay royalties that will be 1 billion dollars plz!

WM28UK on September 11, 2014 at 10:27 am

Why not have Scrufflebeck do the recap? We havent seen much of it this chapter.

anon on September 12, 2014 at 4:20 pm

@anon: I’m not sure, how many of us are fluent with dog language? (Dog plant technically, yeah)

Francesco on September 13, 2014 at 5:11 am

@francesco we could have scrufflebeck produce the subtitles with his plant(vines?)

Khayne on September 13, 2014 at 8:54 am

NOOOO I WAS OUT FOR TOO LONG NOOOOOO
Very beautiful scene, Author Joe.

Damian Dante on September 13, 2014 at 10:13 am

Thanks for the well-wishes, everyone! :D
Scrufflebeck doing the recap is a great idea haha I’ll think of something :D

Joe on September 13, 2014 at 6:32 pm

No! Raj the Turtle needs to do the recap! You promised us Raj and have yet to deliver.

Also, yaaay I’m back after buying a new computer and losing all my bookmarked sites.

Pseudonym_ on September 13, 2014 at 11:08 pm

@ Pseudonym – its horrible when you lose all your favourite porn sites init :P

WM28UK on September 14, 2014 at 12:58 pm

@Pseudonym_ Raj the turtle approves.

What if I told you my name IS Raj?

Damian Dante on September 15, 2014 at 1:07 am

Andy is coming, and can’t Annika Come back as a zombie?

Niko on September 19, 2014 at 8:30 pm

She comes back as Raj the turtle. And then Joe, back to his “normal” self, wears Raj as a helmet, not knowing it is actually his sister

Pseudonym_ on September 20, 2014 at 12:22 am

poor joe…somehow, i´m STILL hoping annika will come back somehow, though for the life of me i can´t say how…although….maybe the plants could do something? they surely seem to have quite a few aces up their leaves: first stopping that rocket which would have destroyed the entire colony, now they appear to do something to rosa that will make her imune to the sun, heck maybe even do photosynthesis so she won´t need blood anymore – thats my interpretation of that ‘sun is power’-statement – so who knows, maybe they can grow a leafy girl, using annika´s old body as fertilizer?

Peya Luna on September 22, 2014 at 11:53 pm

Great chapter!

All of her hope and all of her love lie with all others and with Earth. Joe must not give up.

Alke on September 25, 2014 at 7:08 pm

@peya those are good ideas, but i dont know how joe wld like the idea of his sister returning as a plant/vampire >.>

Khayne on September 28, 2014 at 6:54 am

@ Khayne – A vegetarian vampire i like it!

WM28UK on September 28, 2014 at 10:05 am

@WM28UK soooo… thats a vegepire? XD (though im pretty sure by definition a vampire cant be a vegetarian :x)

Khayne on September 28, 2014 at 10:41 pm

So, she’s been infected with dormant zombie virus, active vampire virus, received some power from blood of one of the most psionically advanced creature in the world and was fused with plants… It’s official. Annika is a reality-bending vambieplant.
@Khayne As far as I know, vegetarianism is not caused by fusing with a sentient plant, but if it is… We’re in bigger trouble than I thought. xD

Koraboras on September 29, 2014 at 8:36 am

WAIT… If she became vegetarian after fusing with a plant, wouldn’t that be cannibalism?
