How to ask questions:
PM me on SmackJeeves! | Tweet me! | Email me: Tytonnuzlocke@hotmail.com! (Probably won't check this often.)

Notes:
Make sure you address either me or one of the characters so the answer can be appropriately given.
Questions will be answered in the order they were asked, unless a question is time-sensitive or there is an overload of questions from one person.
Questions addressed to "all" will only be applied to Tyton and the current team.
Beginning 8/1/15, I reserve the right to answer questions without character illustrations as a way to save time and space.
