So here we are! Our first step in our next 100 pages of Dot X. Where will we be in 99 pages? Only time will tell!

(Yes, by the way, we'll get back to Clone and the gang in just a moment!)

So! Let me pull the curtain back for a moment and let you all in on where I am regarding making these comic pages! As I'm typing this, at 11:41pm on Monday night right before this page goes live, I've not begun to work on page 402 yet. This is the first time since page 200 that I'm not ahead, and so I have a lot of anxiety regarding getting this done on time! I have no idea how or when I'll be able to pull ahead again, and so this'll be an interesting few weeks as I regain my footing. I literally don't know when I can find the time to work more, but I'll make it happen!

On a very related note, I'd like to apologize to the few of you who follow the Seamer Dex Community Project for being so silent this month! I needed to put something on hold and it ended up being the SDCP. I'm not happy about it either! Now that page 400 is behind me, I'm going to do my best to really kickstart it again, though I can't make any promises as to how soon! Rest assured I HAVE been working bit by bit on planning out the Evolution trees so that when I AM able to jump back into the SDCP full-time, It'll be with some sort of major update!
For those of you uninvolved with the SDCP, sorry for taking so much time to talk about it here on DotX!

as for Dot X and the SDCP, try not to stress yourself out too much. you're only one guy, after all.

@zenpi at the very least Fang did.

I can't decide whether to read this on or The latter would be more underground and edgy but the page select box is set to "And So We Begin" rather than "Stories Told".

Oh, you were expecting me to comment on the comic? Nah.

Okay, I've been reading this comic since page 200 was released, but I just saw your ad for it in the Mensa Bulletin. I had no idea that you were a Mensa member, Sky! THAT'S SO COOL!

Lol, so much could be said about this and I wish I could say it. Sadly the long comments I make sometimes don't usually just come to me, I have to think about them a lot. I'm kinda busy with some school stuff right now so I'm not getting the time I need to do that. This might be goodbye to the comments section for me for a while, but I'll still be on the DotX Voiceover server on Discord.

The non-Speedy one is named Dusk.

Screw it

First I want to call attention to Dusk (I typo'd so many times trying to type his name. I went all the way from Disk to Duck before I finally got it right.) already had grey hair dye on him before he met Speedy. Also, we never saw him sitting on the toilet while he was in the bathroom, yet he was still embarrassed that someone came in. A Mobian who already has grey- fur?- wouldn't have grey dye on them and a Mobian wouldn't be embarrassed to be walked in on in the bathroom if they were just standing around. "Where are you going with this, you loon?" would ask an impatient person. Well my best answer to that impatient person is that I think Dusk has a sibling complex or something AND ALSO I think Dusk's natural fur color is yellow or a bright orange.
(This next part is a bunch of theories and assumptions.)

My theory is that Dusk originally went by something else like Noon or Sunset or something weird like that because he wanted to be the opposite of Moonlight, which means that he probably didn't like being compared to his sister or didn't want Mobians to think they were similar just because they are twins. In other words Dusk wanted to be opposite from Moonlight to show that he was independent of her or that they were independent of each other. Later he realized that without anyone to take care of them he needs to stop worrying about how other people see him and focus on coexisting with his sister, which he now does, though not at first glance. To show his new mindset he changed his name to Dusk and dyed his orange or yellow fur grey, which he was about to reapply in private before Speedy walked in on him claiming to be Fade.

This is a VERY half-baked and incomplete theory which probably has a lost of holes and has a lot of assumptions, but I do firmly believe that grey isn't Dusk's natural fur (I'm just gonna keep using fur until Sky corrects me) color and that Dusk used to have a different name. I am now gonna chill on commenting for real this time.

Dusk was one of my favorite new ones before, but now he's really cool!

@Void; why do you post these theories on Youtube???

Thank you! If I absolutely need to take another break I will, but ideally I'll just keep going forever! :D (As for your question the green stuff is a visual effect for the readers, though I'd say Fang picked up on the spirit of it.)

@Patcat127 and TriforceFandom:
Don't worry, it's not permanent!

Pretty much kinda!

That's odd, for me both options are set to the same page!

Oh awesome!! :D I never really talk about it because it doesn't come up, but yeah! I'm in mensa too! It's great to see someone saw that ad! I wasn't sure if anyone'd pay it any mind. Even though you've already been reading it already, I still consider that ad a success now! ^_^

All I'll say is that some things you've brought up will be explained in the next few pages, and others will be delved into if I ever get around to a Dusk/Moonlight based chapter! ; )

Your new avatar confused me for so long until I realize it was an image, not text. I'VE BEEN FOOLED

I'm glad to hear it! :D Dusk didn't do fantastic during the last fan survey popularity-wise, but I'm thinking that's because we'd barely gotten to know him yet!
