Have you ever wondered what happens to the characters that DON'T make it into the stories? There is a place where rejected, unfinished, and imperfect characters can go to study, play, and talk to each other. A place that an ordinary girl has stumbled upon...

Wait, this is still going on?
Ughhhh. Yeah, I know. Trying to get back into it. This was penciled and inked a few months ago, even partially colored. Just couldn't find the will to finish it until recently. Life is busy, and I just can't work on this in my free time as often as I used to, for my own sanity. But anyway, here we go, back to the story, if you're still reading. Maybe I should have done a little recap first. XD

Got fairly nitpicky with retracing the lines. Still can't get pressure sensitivity to work the way I want in Manga/Clip Studio, and the other program that does it well kills the page resolution automatically. The dialogue's kinda... eh. Not sure if it accomplishes what I wanted. I thought I had the next page thumbnailed out, but it might have to change again.

This was almost ready for awhile, just never had time to sit down and finish the editing. I hope I have the storyboard for the next page planned out, I forget. Now where did I put my sketchbook...

Hmm. Not sure if I have anything else to say about this page.

Delayed due to the holidays (and video games XD). It was almost done for awhile, just couldn't seem to find the will/time. On the plus side, I'm starting on the next one already. I even draw at work when I'm able to, but I can't when it's too busy/there's too many people around.

Anyway, normally Joe doesn't show this much emotion but I couldn't resist. Guess he was caught off guard. Made an error by including Med-kun in the class-he's supposed to be Pearl only. By the time I realized it, it was too late. Oh well. Maybe he snuck in and no one noticed, or it's a random char who happens to look just like him. For the bottom left panel, I cut up actual paper snowflakes to trace. They're pretty hard to do when they're that small, used nail scissors for it. Played around a little and had fun. Spent way too much time digitally editing, since it's a lot easier with my current laptop/tablet.

Yep, this chapter is going to jump around a little with different characters. We'll get back to the main cast in due time.

Hopefully you can read the really crazy panel. Let me know if you can't and I'll lower the opacity. Some moods are really hard to portray. This one works only for Harue. Looked up "confusing patterns" for reference and went from there. :)

Page was delayed due to losing the fancy pen I had just bought... It's found, just took awhile. Also the program I was using shrinks the resolution automatically, didn't realize it until just now. It's not too noticeable unless you zoom in REALLY close, but still I'm going to have to see if there's a fix for it. Another thing-the site has been loading slow on my new computer, on multiple browsers. The page will "finish" loading to a shell of the page, then a few seconds later it'll just pop up at once. Takes about 30 seconds total to pull up one page. Anyone else having this problem?

SoRe is back!
Well, that took longer than I thought. Can't believe it's been so long. I'm still unsure about the details, but if I don't get back into it, I never will. I've gone through about 3 drafts of part of this chapter already. I'm not sure how often I'll be updating, work and life are busy, but we'll see.

Finally got a new tablet/laptop, the pen is really nice and I can use Manga Studio/Clip Studio on the same device. Traced most of the outlines so it's clearer too (it would have taken too long on my old laptop, with just a mouse).
If anyone's still reading... SoRe will return before Halloween. I'd better get something up or I will slap myself silly.
Bwaarrrggggg. 4 months already? Geez... Still planning on coming back at some point. Need to decide which version to go with for the next chapter.
Still here
Whew, time sure flies. Sorry folks (if anyone even read these comments). I'm trying to come back soonish but things keep happening, and everything I come up with for the story or even gags just seems stupid. SoRe will be back eventually.

April Fools (16 days late)
In truth, I could've had this up on 4/1, if I hadn't gotten lazy about writing in the text by hand on my tablet, or scanning the page in and using my laptop. I'm still storyboarding the next chapter... just not sure about where I want it to go. I've been somewhat productive, I finished fixing the pages that are up on this site, and got a home project done that TMM & I have ben working on for ages. Still not sure when the comic will be back. I have a family thing coming up, then work is likely to get busier. Personally, we've had a pretty rough winter (and I don't just mean the weather). Things are looking up, but spring isn't quite here yet.

I still like this page, for the most part. The bed railing is meant to evoke the railing on SoRe's roof. Since it's a dream sequence, the bed is also getting taller and out of reach. I hope that was clear.

That's the toilet in the 4th small frame. I didn't get a chance to provide much detail on it. It's a seatless toilet with just a tiny bit of water in it, and a tank that's in the walls. The sink is pedal operated, and there is no plug for the sink. Basically, it's so that none of the captives will try to drown themselves.

Harue is referring to this event (forgot to link it)

blaaaah I need to make another one at some point. So many mistakes...

Hmm. I think I'm leaving the bad tone job on the first panel, and the different font for now. It doesn't bother me too much.

Note: This was done for a fundraiser to help out a friend. The info sketch had some personal info, so I took it down. Keeping this sketch up, b/c Sandy's so cute. XD

And yes, that's the same foot she sprained in chapter 13.

Have a super embarrassed EB from the RP universe he's in, and "Cindersaur". The first thing I thought of when I heard that name, since I'm not terribly familiar with Transformers. This is a bit of an older sketch. I drew something which I was going to use as a gag, but it's not very entertaining. It's been a rough winter, and not just weather wise. I'm currently fixing old pages: broken links, big mistakes, etc. Lost some of my original files, so it's taking awhile.

I fixed the spacing on this page, too. Finally figured out that I need to Rasterize both the text AND and speech bubbles before scaling the pic down, otherwise things shift around and look a bit off.

The spacing of the text was bothering me, so I fixed it. I lost the original high-rez file with layers, so I had to retype and align everything again... I hope the quality of the pic itself is still ok.

There's a small inconsistency here with what Rob said way back in chapter one, that the alarm hadn't gone off. Just pretend that he meant that it hadn't gone off a second time to alert that the stranger was at the school. In truth, I wasn't thinking THAT far ahead in chapter one. XD
