Hey, heyyyy, loooook it’s a paaaaage. I’m not quite done with university yet, but things have chilled out enough that I have time to get back to work on updates again. My last assignment is due on Friday, and then I’m actually proper done. It’s going to be great. Also it means no more filler art, which I’m sure you’re all grateful for. Huge thanks to everyone for being very patient about this. Not a single person rocked on up and called me a lazy ass for missing updates, and considering this is the internet I feel like that’s nothing short of a miracle.

Also today’s page brought to you by Manga Studio, since it turns out drawing in Manga Studio is about twice as fluid as drawing in Photoshop. I pretty much chopped 4 or 5 hours off the time it takes me to finish a page by doing all the drawing in Manga Studio and switching back to Photoshop just for the colouring, so… good times! Probably would’ve had to put off this update til Monday otherwise, so I’m pretty pleased! Also just shocked by how much easier it’s going to make pages in the future. Ohhh yeaaaaahhh

Yay new page =) And good news all round. I’ll be going into my third year of uni in the fall, and I’m pretty much terrified of how much work I’m going to be doing. Why do they pile it on like that anyway? Surely we’re all less productive when we’re hovering on the brink of insanity and death brought on by lack of sleep. =/

Anyway … this page looks great =)

If you like, we can call you a lazy ass for missing updates now.

I don’t think it would be quite the same though.

Your artwork is worth waiting :] So being patient isn’t really that hard. Keep it up, we’ll wait for every update as usuall.
Good luck with your assignment! ;)

Hmm, it’d be Friday night in the UK. I guess that means Rose is off getting completely and utterly hammered, smashed, sauced, and such at a pub somewhere… Happy graduation!

I’m just happy to see new pages coming soon. Yay! The story has too much tension going on right now. I need to know what happens next!

Haha! Actually, I don’t drink alcohol at all… Instead I was hanging out with some friends, eating cake, drinking tea and watching one of them play Bioshock. Fairly low key, but much more my sort of thing. But regardless, very relieved to be finished uni now.

Plus it means more pages for everyone, and I can add some stuff to the site I’ve been wanting to do for months now. :) This was quite an unfortunate part of the story for life to get in the way of since I’ve been really looking forward to this whole chapter. No matter now, though. Full steam ahead!

O_o the things I discover on a re-read… a teetotaler? Rose, I’m not sure we can be friends any more. I’ve been halving my monthly scotch ration to cover the costs of helping to fund your work. To learn that you willfully abstain from the divine elixer yourself…

Nah, I kid, of course. Grog may be my medicine for the blight of depression, but I well respect anyone who can keep off the stuff. :-)
