Badda Bing!
And that's why Lena is my favorite character.
No muss, no fuss, no violence necessary. Just get the job done.
Missed you!
Welcome back, Charil! And congratulations on your beautiful new arrival!
Well, he is a baby, after all, and they take a lot of time. Never fear, we all love you and we'll be here whenever you post.
And, hoo-boy, this guy don't know what he's messing with.
@b : no apology needed! I wish I could produce more hahah. And thank you! :)
oh sorry take your time! congrats and thank you
@b: It is! It's just a bit rough at the moment, as I'm trying to find a balance between it and an active ~6 month old hah
hey, is this still updating?

I wonder if he'll throw himself at her. Although even if he did I think he would get his ass handed to him XD

@Huntik13: Yes it does! --> http://clockworkatrium.smackjeeves.com/comics/1801834/chapter-03-page-42 (agh, old art D8) (and no for some reason coding that link was not working wtf)
He was asking for it really hahah :D
Yay! New page! ^-^

I don't remember the rules, so does taking the pad means that jerk is out, right?

Everyone makes mistakes. Like, getting too cocky during your human chess game and not paying attention to your surroundings :V

Words are about to be eaten in 3... 2...

So hello! It isn't much of a reason for my absence anymore, but, my son was born two weeks earlier than he was expected! Long story short it was a very rough birth that ended with me having a blood transfusion, but now three months later we're all doing great :)

For a baby, he's really pretty independent, so (and here comes those words again) hopefully I'll be able to update a lot more this year than I did last year hahah.
@Charil: Just discovered this wonderful comic. Its a very enjoyable read (well that's not quite the right phrase with content matter... but you know what I mean). Hope everything is going better and tell your husband to give long massages... that's definite good bribery (have friends and family that have similar diagnosis, so I know it is super unfun to go through what you've been dealing with).

All that to say, you have another fan for when you are able to update again, but no pressure.
@Huntik13: Waaah, such a detailed comment, I'm too shy! Ahah. It's nice to meet you then, and hopefully I can live up to your expectations! :)

@Cave: It was actually a concern (well, "concern") of mine way back when I was first fleshing out the concept. I think it's kind of obvious that I'm a big Battle Royale fan and while it can get pretty goretastic (especially the comic) (and that damned movie), there's also a major focus on the characters and their psyche, how their circumstance alters them. That's what I wanted to do with Atrium. Throw a bunch of turbulent young adults into a lose-lose situation and see how they stand up to the pressure.
... the "killing each other" is just a bonus for me :D

@Theorah: Ahah, I've pretty much stopped using DA too, don't feel there's anything to it anymore OTL Though I always love your work, glad to see you're still around! :)
