@Hero of Comedy- No, this is just me being an idiot. Tomorrow's summary actually has content.
Need a hug?
@Timeheart- He's basically considered a Pet, yeah! Though he's considered a slightly bigger threat given the 'dragon' bit, Shard's bounty winds up being higher than it should be given that she's considered as being the one who commands him.
What would be the odds that a creature like that Dragon-Rabbit thing gets confused as a pet of the crew? Much like Chopper.

@jameswolf100- Yeah, but I'd say give these a read first; to have an idea of the shenanigans they've gone through. Unless you wanna change things, but still.

@Shard: (in coming joke)

Don’t lie. We all know the real reason for the cancellation is that ComicKèt died!
Thanks for reading Red Bow Chronicles.

If you want to know what's next for me, I've gone over it here.

See you around.
Étude wasn't always going to join the crew, largely because he only joined my cast after I started the comic. It's kind of weird how I basically avoided using humans in any part of Red Bow - largely because I was confused about if they existed in the Hedgehog Piece universe - and then just went "screw it" when I decided that he was going to be involved in the story.
I had basically nothing for Corbelle Island. It's actually embarrassing how little I had! I think I assumed I'd have something by the time I got there, but clearly that didn't pan out!
I wasn't sure if Kumori would return as an enemy later on, or if she'd wind up joining the crew. However, I needed to make it clear that she wasn't as strong as she could have been for this fight- with her Devil Fruit covering the entire island, I could imply that she was strong enough to do that, but weakened by doing so, allowing the crew to beat her. Funnily enough, she wound up being stronger than her former crew in the process! I imagine the disagreement she had with the other Captain that got her kicked off the crew was a combination of 'how strong she is compared to them' and 'not liking the fact that they kidnapped a small child from her home'.
Shamsleet Isle shaped up to be the longest arc for the Red Bow Pirates in my notes. As such, it gets two pages of summary instead of one.
Dragon Rocks was a very different arc than what I originally had planned for this part of the comic (after Sirah joins). But I passed that idea on to someone else, and decided this was a better use of the Red Bow Pirates' time. It also net them a new crew member- the Shard/Daiki unit. For purposes of scripting and notes, I considered them as one cohesive unit, since neither were very effective on their own, but they made a very dangerous team.

Sirah is one of those characters I don't get to use for things that often, so I'm always happy when I have a chance to. Maybe I'll find a way to work her into one of my other comics.
The Freedom Ship arc was completely new- except for one major detail. When Garin is treating Két, he pauses at her back because she's been branded. A detail that would likely only come up in Két's flashback, which would happen very late in the series (or near the halfway point? I dunno, it's unclear), is that Két was a former slave of the Celestial Dragons. She'd been forced to eat her Devil Fruit, and nearly died when they detonated her collar after she failed to display the abilities it granted her. Her panic allowed her to activate it and escape, and the experience wound up shaping her and her beliefs. She strives for everyone to have freedom because she knows what it's like living without it.
This island is almost exactly the same as it was originally planned to be. Literally the only differences are that they're not there to drop Jasmine off and they don't fight Zanzabar. Everything else is basically the same.
I actually quite like that last 'panel'. I'll probably hate it in like, three weeks, but for now I think it looks nice.
The whole 'Silverado forms a pirate crew with Insomniac, Ark, and Grudge' thing was also going to happen in the original version of the comic. All that's changed was where, when, and who was loyal to who at the start.

Damaru's backstory also got an overhaul, if you hadn't noticed! His dad was probably going to be important, somewhere down the line, but it didn't come up in any of my notes.

All that needs to be said is in the above announcement.
The pages will go up daily at 7:30. There's about 10 of these to get through, and I hope you enjoy what could have been.
