Return to Eden

by Miru
When you're the last angel remaining, being mistaken for Satan's lunch is *not* going to make things easier....

(may contain fun stuff like angels, demons, complete disregard for the bible, crazy people and bare butts, sometimes bare-butted crazy people. Add a hint of BL, and you've been warned)

Glad you kept it on as my first time reading it but definitely not the last, good stories are meant to be read and reread many times.

@Lain: and thank YOU for reading and enjoying the ride. It always makes me so happy to hear that people did not just read my story, but enjoyed it and felt with it, too. ♥

@emmatheemmu: Thank you for your very nice words, they mean the world to me. I am super happy to have contributed to something that people enjoyed reading. Thank you for telling me so.

@snigepippi: I now right, nine years, where did they go?? And thank you. I'm still working on the new story (it's still wonky, at best), but I will try real hard to make it another fun ride (for me and for the readers).

@sweetyaoilovergirlz: Thanks! That was one speedy read through, amazing!!! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

@Kimaysu: Omg Thank you so much for telling me, even if it's been a while since this comic finished (almost a year already oh wow). I'm super glad that you liked it, and also a little proud that you remembered it from years ago, not going to lie =D

9 years? Really
I'm feeling old. This was one of the first comics on the web I started following O_O And now it's finished.
You did a very good job! I hope you enjoyed it as much as your readers. Good luck with the theis !! And I'm looking foreward to see what you come up with next :D

This was an absolutely wonderful story from beginning to end, from the characters, the plot, and especially the lovely artwork. I feel privileged to have read a work that obviously had a ton of heart, effort, and thought put into it. As bittersweet as my feelings may be as this gem has come to an end, I'm grateful that you were able to convey such a great story on paper for all of us to read. I can't wait to read your next work.

Bitter sweet
Why is it when something you loved for so long ends is so sweet yet so sad? I felt honored to read this comic for so long and see the end. Thank you for your hard work! The last page literally brought a tear to my eye. Again, thank you!

This is a long update, go back two pages to read it all.

And this is it, folks.

I'm not good with big words and retrospectives, so I think I'll just leave it as is.
Though, once again, I want to thank each and every one of you, for reading this, for going through the first awful chapters and actually keep on reading until you reached this very point. This is very big for me, bigger than I ever thought it would be, and I am going to be honest here: I am really proud that got this far. I had doubts I'd reach
this one day, and here we are. And YOU are a big part of this, because if YOU weren't reading, then there would have
hardly been any point of putting this here. I know, I know, "draw for yourself" and all that, but to know that you're doing it for someone else, too, is just as big a drive. So thank you. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

Heh, speaking of drive: Did you know that this comic spanned over 9 and a half years? That's almost a decade, you guys.

So yeah, what about the future? Well, a lot of very nice people have shown interest in me starting with a new story and I will most probably do so because this whole thing is, all in all, very fun. I like telling stories, and I grow so very attached to my characters, that I just need to tell about them and their adventures.
However, that will have to wait for a little. I need to graduate first, or at the very least, hand in my thesis, which is due in march. Graduation should be somewhere around august/september. We will see. I can predict finger-tingling sensations coming up soon.

How will you find out if I start something new? Well, first, I'll update this page, with a link to it. I am probably going to
keep it on Smackjeeves, mostly because SJ has caused me less trouble than Comicgenesis (haha, when I began this thing, it was still called keenspace, does anyone still remember that?). Besides, I like the idea of having all my comics under the same account, visibly so. So that is a plus, too. So yeah, you might want to keep
an eye on me here. I have a doodle-tumblr as well, and I'll make an anouncement on there for sure, though be warned, there's a LOT of (gay) fan-art on there hahaahahaaaaa~ahem. I might need another one. (for now: )
I'm also always aviable under miru_at_tyo (at) yahoo (dot) com if you're interested. I'm a huge awkward potato, but I promise I'll do my very best to answer anything I get.

And... that's it! I hope you enjoyed your ride (I sure did), and thank you for sticking with me until the very end.
You are the best public I could ever have hoped to have.

Happy new year, folks. I hope it's a good one for everyone.

I just realized that next week's update will be the last update.
This gives me a lot of feelings and I'm not sure how to handle them.

A quick rundown, for people who wondered:
The trees don't grow the fruit by themselves, they just serve as 'collectors'. THerefore, Gabe-tree will most probably just bear one single fruit, and that would be Nats' once she dies.
Therefore, Nats' kids will not be linked to the trees either, as there are no fruits on them anymore. Worst case scenario: Nats can't actually have kids. But that's kind of sad, so let's leave that open.

Anyway, to all of you, have a smashing start into the new year! Lots of health and luck to you all
I love you tons.

@HaveCare: he died as the world crumbled and Ariel died, so yes, he had a fruit. A really fresh one, too.
Gabriel had a fruit?
December 24th, 2011
Dayumm, that is some enthousiastic gardening there...

I wish you all a happy end of year! Stay awesome, you guys are the best <3
and so begin's the rebirth of the ancient's...
Ariel's fruit?
Shrubbery? Shrubbery!

Those are some dangerous plants, thar.
December 10th, 2011
Gardening. Thing you need to properly learn first in this world if you don't want the shrubbery to explode right and left.

(yeah, yeah, I just wanted to say 'shrubbery' one last time)

@Ati: Oh man, that is... that's REALLY nice of you. Just, THANK YOU ;___;

I'll be honest here and say that one of the main reasons I kept on drawing (other than the whole `I want to tell this story damnit') was that it gave me a reason to draw at least once a week, which was sorely needed once I got into University. I didn't really try to constantly push myself to improve my art though, and honestly, the art on RtE is NOT the best I can do (or else a page would take more than the few hours it does now), but the fact that I cringe at things like my first chapters/the mugshots on that character page (ohgod) really puts my way into perspective for me, as well. As an artist, it's so hard to see your own progress, but here, I have 8 years of constant drawing laid out all in front of me and it's the best proof that yes, constantly doing something will make you better over time.

I learned a lot out of this, not only art wise, but about how I want and can tell a story, thanks to trial and error, but also thanks to people like you who were wonderful with their input and helped me grow, and came to be attached to these characters just as much as I was.

It means the world to me. So thank you.

Always on the edge with those sound effects. *always*

I just noticed today... For some reason, I totally forgot who Kiriko was. So I went looking for him on the cast page to refresh my memory.

You have improved so TREMENDOUSLY at art since the comic first started. :D You have an extremely lovely style that comes with practice and patience. The writing greatly improved as well. The characters developed more, more distinctive and memorable personalities... The dialogue is cute and funny and makes me nostalgic for the cartoons I watched as a kid. Not because they're goofy or cartoonish, but just because a lot of comics I read end up getting very mature and/or adult. I like reading something that's not funny because it's a vulgar joke, but funny because it's witty.

No, I'm not saying you're a perfect writer or artist, you can always improve. :P But take it to heart that your practice and patience with art has paid off these last few years and given me a thoroughly enjoyable comic to read. I really hope you begin another comic after this one as I will definitely read it (Although I know you've stated it won't be a seamless start-up. :) )! I can only look forward to seeing more improvements from you as both an artist and writer.

(( I'd love to see more angel stuff, but mostly because I have a thing for angels/demons if you haven't inferred that from my profile. Haha. ))
