Author Notes:

In case you are wondering, yes, all of that is a memory. Originally it was just going to be Pudding sitting there TELLING the others about Mi, but when I realized this scene would be the 400th page, I knew it was time to break out DotX's first flashback!! :D

Here's the placeholder placemat I had up prior to this page, in case anyone still wants to do it down the line:

I'm exhausted! The next page of DotX will be up on Tuesday but after that I might jump back to the 'every 4 days' update schedule. We'll see! I'm so ready to sleep right now. We'll talk about that more with the next page! ^_^

Also James and I are streaming RPG Maker MV again tonight at 8pm EST, though this doesn't feel like an appropriate time to be plugging that.

THANK YOU ALL FOR THE PAST 400 pages!!! I wouldn't have done it without all of you! Here's to the next 400!

(...I'll have to do something HUGE for 500 now, huh.)

in the word search, there are several "Mi"s (one of which is part of "Denim"). which one are we looking for?

also, Hatchet, Loofy, and Dot are in the word search but not the word bank.

Ah, any 'Mi' will do. It being such a short name meant it just shows up a couple times by accident!

The characters listed in the word back are intentional! There are some secrets hidden in there, like the ones you've mentioned.

Lol this is great
But first the page hadn't even loaded yet, and I saw the title, a little part of me disappeared because of the anticipation. But I will solve these puzzles! I will find the words! I will get through the maze! And I will fill in those blanks!!
Thanks for doing your best Sky, I understand that a special, mega-page can take a little while to accomplish, and I will gladly complete these puzzles that you spent your good time on. Happy 400th Page!!!

@triforce fandom On Friday the ACTUAL 400th page will replace this page, and you'll never see this page ever again

so far, the only ones i'm missing for the crossword are 1 down, 14 across, 15 down, 30 across, 21 down, and 43 across. anyone got any of these?

I made an account just so I could show off my answers. Shameless, I know. Now gimme them arbitrary points ლ(༎ຶᴥ༎ຶლ)


By the way, searching for this "Em" character who is supposed to be Audrey's daughter (54 down in the crossword) gives results for the character introduced on page 309. However, further searching reveals her name is Ementine. She also couldn't be Audrey's daughter because she's "the OLDEST member of the DotX cast thus far! (Not including the Pirate.) (...Also not including the Demon, whose age is unknown.)"

Zyxl as far as I am aware you are the first to solve all the puzzles! Everything checks out- (You even circled some words in the word search that I didn't even realize were there!)

Actually, in regards to the word search, there ARE still some secrets hidden in there that you didn't circle, but as they're not in the word bank I'm not holding that against you! (Every character who will ever be in DotX is in that word search)

The character you're thinking of is 'Clementine', by the way, who I only now realize hasn't had her name stated in the comic yet. That's on me! Her pages come up when you search 'Em' because 'Em' is literally in the middle of her name! It's just a coincidence!

Anyway, please, enjoy these 50 arbitrary points! You've earned them!

(Also, @TriforceFandom/TheTyGuy, when I put up the 400th page on Friday, I'll post these puzzles in the comments here so anyone can still do them!)

thank you the n hugs hetreagod
Zyxl 19th Apr 2017, 11:17 AM edit delete reply
Thanks. Man, I feel stupid for not realising that was Clementine. I'm awful with names by the way; I only finished those puzzles because I had a lot of time to research (as a way of procrastinating). I had fun, anyway.

I also figured there'd be more in that word search I hadn't found. I'm still hoping for a character based on Big the cat, though. "Lemon" is also in there, so I'm guessing that's going to be a relative of Lime.

Btw, are you saying you know every character that's going to be in DotX (as in, you're definitely not going to create any brand new ones)?
Sky 19th Apr 2017, 11:41 AM edit delete reply
I was hoping it'd take some research! I tried to make it hard without being impossible, as it has to last until Friday ideally. I was starting to fear I had made it TOO hard though, so this is a big relief!

(I'm going to let you know right now there's no character based on Big, I don't want to get your hopes up!)

As of right now, yes, I do know every character who's going to be in DotX! Since these characters have all been created by me and my friends in elementary school, I already have a full cast to work with. (Most of the characters introduced after Zeda are based on only a name/design/loose description but they still technically existed back then!) Only two characters in DotX were created AFTER the comic started, that being someone introduced during the ball, and another character we've yet to meet, whom I might even save for a different series! They're special cases as they each serve a purpose that the pre-existing characters couldn't fill. It's not impossible that I'll add more characters down the line, but as of right now I'm fairly certain that I'm sticking with what I've got planned! We've already met the majority of the cast, anyway. Less than ten characters remain to be seen, not including Super Duper Hero X alter-egos!
Zyxl 19th Apr 2017, 4:28 PM edit delete reply
I think you got the difficulty just right. It was very hard but evidently not impossible.

P.S. I was just kidding about Big; obviously we should expect a character based on METAL Big the cat—he may know everything Big knows, but that won't help him since Big knows nothing. Strange, isn't it?

Page 400 is up!

I've updated my author comment with the puzzles image and more, so make sure to give it a read!! :D

Looks like Gell received her bow from Amanda. But forget about the odd way Pudding gives more information about her brother; I'm more concerned about the groceries!

I love the 400th page. Bravo!!!

It's not a phase Amanda, I'm going emo!

I don't know why, but when I'm not fully focusing at the page and just looking at it, Mi looks more feminine... I don't know why...
triforce fandom 21st Apr 2017, 12:48 PM edit delete reply
Mi and Amanda remind me of Yveltal with color of the outfits P.S. pokemon
zenpai 21st Apr 2017, 3:28 PM edit delete reply
now that i can form a proper response to this page, i love how Amanda looks in the newer, less Sonic-y style.
