Twelve O'Clock Sweet

by manatiel_
When an exiled vampire and a reclusive herbalist become unlikely friends, they work together to complete their quests for revenge and redemption.

~~~

When Rowan is exiled from the underground vampire colony, it's a miracle that he finds someone still living in the abandoned settlement a few miles away. It's even more of a miracle when the tenant, a herbalist called Sage living on the outskirts of Sanctuary, agrees to take him in and help get him back to health.

You have provided us with lovely characters and an interesting world to mull over. More than that, you have done so often at your own expense. I adore your work but it makes me happy to know that you have made a firm decision in aid of your own health and happiness and prioritised them. I wish you well with whatever may come, whether we meet again or no. And if I see this story pop up on my notifications again one day then so much the better. Stay safe x

Hi again everyone.

Unfortunately I've had to make a really tough decision, and that decision is to stop this comic. I'm sorry to everyone for basically letting this "will she post a page?" debacle go on for the best part of a year, but this year has just been really hard.

This year has essentially been a year of mourning, something I've (luckily) never had to face until now. My Granddad passed away from Cancer at the end of August, and working on and thinking up this comic in the 2 months following that really helped me cope and not dwell on mourning 24/7. This year has just been full of firsts: first Christmas, first birthdays, first anniversaries without him. So all that has lead to my mood being lower and harder to deal with.

However this year has always sucked for me health wise, as every time I think something gets better, something will just ruin that. When I updated 2 weeks ago, I truly believed my health was improving and I would be able to start posting pages again, but after an appointment today that's unfortunately not likely any time soon. Don't worry! It's nothing extreme, but it's just a lot of stuff to go through, and a lot of information to take in.

So yeah. For now I am putting the comic on an indefinite hiatus. I am by no means drawing the curtain on this comic entirely. Just right now, I'm popping it in a box and keeping it in storage while I practice art, work on health, and just generally get shit done that needs to be done that will then allow me to give this comic my all.

Again, I'm so sorry for dragging this out. I really believed I could do it, I really wanted to do it. But I suppose now is just not the right time for me. 100+ fans, and 9.5k views in it's first year (almost) is more than I ever could've dreamed, and I genuinely can't thank you guys enough. I also can't expect you guys to wait for me forever, so if this is where we part ways, then I completely understand and I thank you for your support until now.

I hope I will see you guys soon, and I hope you will be well in the coming future. Thank you for everything.

Thank you for the update, glad to hear that the worst is behind you & a better outlook ahead.
Ps-- Your SSD disaster inspired me to get another one for back up. No point in tempting fate :)

Hi everyone!

A quick update to say my computer has been up and running a couple weeks now and everything is in order! ... I think.

My SSD died so along with reinstalling windows and a few programs, I lost all my art from the last 2 years!!!! I'm a fool with no backup!!!!!

I actually planned to back it up but was saving it for when I had plenty of time to go through and organise everything better... that was too late :(

I plan to start working on the comic again soon though!! I have to make another comic file and fiddle with all those settings again but I am excited to be back soon. For now please enjoy this fitting BRB teaser of a character coming in Chapter 2! I can't wait for you guys to meet them, and I'm sure Sage can't wait either :)

Once again, thank you for your continued support, and I will hopefully see you soon! <3

Thank you for all the support thus far. I didn't want to officially go on hiatus, because I really wanted to and believed I could get up to speed, but I guess it wasn't meant to be just yet. I hope you understand.

A little bit late but here are my characters Sage and Rowan celebrating Pride!! Hope everyone had a good Pride month and that the rest of the year is kind to you! 💚❤️

Fun fact: Sage's succulents in the first panel are actually based on my real life succulents!

The pink pot is an Echeveria of some sort, light blue pot is a Hawthoria, yellow pot is a oversized Crassula 'Buddha's Temple,' and the orange pot is my big ol cactus! I think it's a sand dollar cactus, but I'm not entirely sure. It sprouts really pretty flowers though, as does the Echeveria :)

Hi everyone!

I'm still not back fully even though I'm uploading 2 pages (sorry to get your hopes up!).

My plan was to post these when I finally had a buffer that I was happy with so I could have days off or whatever, and still have stuff ready to go up. BUT life threw me a curveball and that buffer hasn't happened. I AM sketching page 25, but it won't be done soon, so neither will a buffer, sorry! :(

I figured I might as well just upload these two while I work on that then, instead of them collecting virtual dust :P I'm kinda going back to my old colouring style from the first few pages, but some tweaks. And I also made my own font! The font in the speech bubbles was written by yours truly :D I hope you like it, I feel like it adds quite a nice touch to the whole thing haha.

I hope you enjoy the new pages, thank you for your patience and continued support! <3

@manatiel_: Well you certainly did a really good job there, with his character design. Hell, I know I'd let him into my flat if Rowan needed a place to stay in a heartbeat.

I was born with synesthesia, which basically means I see sounds as colors, but I can also see what their aura looks like as well. So with that being said, I bet Rowan would have a lovely and as well calming aura if I ever had the chance to meet him in reality. He's a keeper, no doubt about it.
