Couple things of note based on some comments on the last page: technically, yes, in the original Battletoads, there are ways to cheese your way around the glitch and still beat the game with two players. Likewise, I think it's only the American version of Battletoads with the problematic glitch. I think the European and Japanese versions might not have this problem. Or that, by 2013, there's probably a romhack out there fixing this bug too.

So yes, y'all are right. It's perhaps not technically impossible for Rain and Gavin to beat Fighter Frogs if they explore their options, per se, but it was not going to happen using the methods they are currently aware of (they did only learn about this within the last few seconds, after all). I just didn't want to overcomplicate things by adding a bunch of disclaimers to a relatively minor point.

Also, in Battletoads, the glitch is that the second player's vehicle doesn't work in a late game stage. In Fighter Frogs, Ryan describes it as instant death upon encountering the boss. So, it all plays by different rules anyway. ;P

That said, leave it to non-gamer, Emily, to propose the best option for them if they want to keep playing right now. Also, Rudy having a grand ol' time in the background with this revelation is just a delight. XD

Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.

My next round of dental work is currently slated for November, but as I've discussed, I've still got a lot to save. If you can help, I will be very grateful. If not, no hard feelings. Thank you, either way.

Rydy/Ryby is a better ship name.

Holding hands? Gasp! How scandalous!

But in all seriousness, this whole storyline has been so sweet and touching to me!

I know you did it on purpose to pay homage to Battlegrounds but I was *so* looking forward to the success page where they beat the game two-player, years later. :P

Has Ryan's sexually ever been discussed I can't remember

Like could we get excited for Rudy X Ryan? Ruyan?

Ryan has said he used to like aiden, so i think their orientations are compatible

OMG wow i never thought the story would come back to this!!!!!!!!!! im not even really into games but remember the first of many times i ever cryed reading this comic was when after that one night gavin says "Hey Rain- well beat it next time!" and she just smiles this happy smile and i teared up because it was so sweet and showed that rain and gavin could still be friends. now we might finally see them win it i hope??? OMG this is the best i just hope that doesnt mean the comic is ending soon but i cant wait to see them win it even if its one at a time

I believe Jocelyn stated it was in the last quarter or something but not ending too soon. Considering how long it takes to finish a few chapters, Rain should be around for a while.

Your comics are very very awesomes.
Funny and interesting in the same time, and it is give a very big charge for the readers' daily life. Reading this comic is really fill up the people with courage to be themselves.
I bless the day when i found this masterpiece, before that day my life feeling what something like "Ahhh... My whole life is built from lies, then i am a realbeing or just a sideactor in the world's worse movie..?" but this comic (maybe i say too much time this word in the comment...) was gave a big boost of hope and disappeared the bad feelings. And now i feel i can be thet woman who i really am without ani regret.

So in nutshell, Your comic are awesome and very helpful and i hope it is some day will be translated to more languages for those who are not good from english but have need for a help like this. And maybe this whole thing was sounds like a the most worse "crazy fanletter' or something...

Then, maybe the congratulation is not enough great word for what you deserved to get. :) And sorry for the long comment with cracked english.
