Can I get you some cough drops or water somthing?

Is that the water or the hit? Probably both

Anyway, one can't say how sorry one's for Darkrai enough times

@The_Ender: I think water is the last thing he wants right now.

I hope Gengar didn't break any of Darkrais ribs.

I don't think that is from the attack, and I highly doubt that Darkrai has a skeletal structure or internal organs, but he definitely feels pain of some sort. As for whats happening, if I had to take a guess, its probably the same issue that Ghost types such as Litwick experience when they are unable to feed on fear in order to survive. Darkai needs to give others nightmares, otherwise he'll become weak and probably die too. It's like his life force is giving out or something.

I assume he could manually give Pokemon nightmares from afar as he did when kept prisoner by Victini. There was no one to give nightmares near him while captive and he seemed to be fine. Plus, he's eating actual food (like the apple and presumably the berries Gengar got earlier) so I think he's fine on the consumption front.

  I know how the constant coughing feels like

If we're talking about Darkrai's health, then maybe Gengar can smash some berries together to make a honey like concoction. If it's the nightmares/life force then maybe they could wake up Jen, then Darkrai can give nightmares to bad Pokemon from fa away.

I just want to say that I absolutely love this webcomic! This is honestly my most favorite webcomic I've ever read. I've got a proper constructive criticism in the works, but I'm a slow typer who writes too much, so until I finish that monster you're just going to have to make due with this. =)

I was actually around near the start of Victory Fire, from back before we even knew Jen's name in comic. I followed for a few years, even posted a couple comments over on deviantart back when I was known as Darkraigirl. Then shortly after Gengar learned focus blast IRL happened and I stopped. Anyways, the important bit is that I got back into reading this about a month ago, and I just- it's so good. So very very good, I reread this like 3 times now, haha. Everything is beautiful, the writing, the art. The characters are all fantastic, but I especially love Jen, Gengar, Darkrai, Lopunny and WES. I swear to god I all but screamed when I saw him the first time. So much Pokemon Colosseum nostalgia right there, and your portrayal of him is absolutely /amazing/! I love it so, so much <3.

I love this comic now, and I loved it when I was younger as well. Back then I was too shy to make a lot of comments, but I'm aiming to fix that this time around. I'm trying to keep this short, so I'm just going to end by saying this is great. The comic's great, you're great, please keep this up and thank you for such an enjoyable read!

I think I have officially read too much manga. The first time I read this I mistook Darkri's coughing for laughing and was all "oh, dang. Darkri must be suppressing that dark aura pretty strongly if its enough to cause chest pains and evil cackling" >_>

Dude, I've had bruised ribs before, you really need to have it checked out Darkri. At least make sure you didn't hit a lung or something.

Coughing is the worst.

dust -

Aw! I remember "darkraigirl" :D Boy, it has been a long time hasn't it? This is going to be VF's fifth year... ouch!

Glad you've enjoyed it (again?), and thanks for the kind comments.

You know, it just now struck me how very similar Gengar and Darkrai are. Both with dark pasts that they're trying to make up for...both with the problem of affecting people in their sleep.

Actually, now I really understand why Gengar was so determined to save Darkrai, to make friends with him. It was because he saw himself in him, a little.

I think. Anyway, that's what I'm seeing right here. Gosh this comic <3

And seriously Darkrai, you may wanna take a trip to Blissey or something.
