“The Archer and the Squirrel” is an unorthodox fairytale about Lark, a young woman in pursuit of a better life. When the king offers a handsome reward for an unusual bounty, Lark confidently jumps at the opportunity. However, things are not always what they seem in the woods, and the closer Lark gets to her prize, the less she’s sure she wants it. Torn between a long-held dream and newly found truths, Lark must decide where her values and loyalties lie.

"Sometimes, ridiculous things are true." Wink wink, nudge nudge.

I think I get a Hufflepuff vibe off you. As for me, no-one can decide whether I'm Ravenclaw or Slytherin.

On a random note, I’ve been on a Harry Potter kick as of late. And I’ve decided to dress up as non-specific Hogwarts’ student for Halloween. Naturally, I’ve taken the Pottermore Sorting Quiz, and I will proudly wear my house colors on Halloween. If anyone else has been sorted, I’d love to hear what house you’re in. As for my house, I’ll let you guess for now…

The next update will be Tuesday, October 31st.

this makes me think there is something between the squirrel and the king or prince. Hmm, I wonder.

Thank you. And I'm glad you picked up on the slight transparency of the mystery girl's dress, because that is what I was going for. ;

This page is lovely as always. I especially love the effect you have on the mystery girl's dress - how you can just see her body through it, but not enough that the fabric looks completely see-through. It's very well done.

I wish you the best of luck on your tests!

Hello Lovelies,

Back in May, I proposed that if Patreon support reached $30 a month, this comic would switch from updating every other week to weekly. Since then, Patreon pledges have grown. And although we haven’t hit the $30 mark, I’m still very grateful! Thank you to all my wonderful Patreons!

This is why, it has been very difficult for me to make the following decision. I need to postpone my $30 Patreon challenge. I can still update every other week, like I’ve been doing. But for the foreseeable future, I cannot update every week. It’s not something I want to do, but it is something I must do, so I can meet the obligations of my day job.

My job requires me to acquire two certifications within a limited time frame. To get these certifications I need to pass two very difficult tests. However, between working full time and making this comic, I haven’t had much time to study. Initially, I didn’t see this as a problem, because I was getting continuously faster at making pages. However the deeper I dove into this comic creating journey, unexpected tasks kept popping up. Like realizing the original plot wasn’t that great, and then quickly studying story structure, character design, and plot, so I could rewrite a better story. Or looking back at old pages, and realizing that I REALLY needed an editor.

So even though I’ve gotten faster at certain aspects of the comic creating process, it’s still my first comic, and I’m learning. I want to make this the best story I can, and I want it to be entertaining, fun and inspiring to readers. To do this, and still keep my day job, I need to stick with updating every other week for now.

If any of you decide to lower or end your pledges, I completely understand. However, I would be extremely grateful for your continued support. Because even as a comic that updates every other week, it still takes a lot of time, thought, heart, and money to keep it going. You patronage is both an emotional and financial lifeline for me.

Thank you for your time.

This is such a beautiful comic! I'm so glad I found this. The watercolour work is just divine.

I wonder if the mysterious girl would want to go into town... I doubt it, somehow.

I’ve replaced all previously uploaded pages with proofread/edited versions.I strongly encourage all readers to go back, and read through the updated pages. I’ve cleaned up the pages ascetically, corrected spelling and punctuation mistakes, and I’ve also gone with different wording choices on several pages. For instance, the Eastern and Western kingdoms now have proper names. Go back and read through to find out what the kingdom’s are called.
