It's a pretty awful song, probably composed out of spite.

Finally, Eliot is catching on.
How's it goin', folks? I tweaked the dialogue a bit on the last page, feel free to check it out!

Also, I've been redesigning the site! It's not yet finished, but lemme know what you think, please!!

[Eliot, confused and annoyed, continues his internal monologue.]

Eliot [Internally]: "Something unusual"? That makes no sense, you jerk!

This is why I can't stand Jesse! I'd run away, but he seems to know all sorts of strange things. Like how to find people, for example... This makes no sense!

[Jesse is seen wandering away on his own. Eliot barks out a simple 'Hey!' from surprise.]

Jesse: Stop pouting! Just look for anything that's out of place at a park! [He waves and leaves Eliot to his own devices so they can search separately.]

Eliot: "Something unusual"? Hmm [He partially covers his mouth in thought.]

[After another brief time skip, Eliot and Jesse are seen walking in a small community park. It has a jungle gym, a basketball court, a swing set, and several benches. It's not a very good park. There are trees and bushes in the surrounding area.]

Jesse: We're looking for something.

Eliot is clearly confused.

Eliot: At the park? What is it?

Jesse [matter-of-factly]: Something unusual.

[Eliot exclaims in Jesse's face, clearly indignant.]

Eliot: Wait! Where are we goin`!?

Jesse, still looking self satisfied, gives Eliot a thumbs up.

Jesse: Anywhere I say, part-timer.

[Still distraught, Eliot hangs his head and sighs.

[After a brief time skip, Eliot is seen changing his clothes.]

Eliot [Internally]: I work for Jesse. I don't want to, but I have to. The alternative is him turning in my attempt at suicide.

[Eliot turns to look at a person hefting a box. Their back is turned.]

Eliot [Internally]: This guy stopped me.

Jesse.

[Jesse appears more masculine than Eliot. He has obnoxiously spiky bedhead hair, and looks grumpy.]

Eliot [Internally]: Nice of him, right?

Jesse: Are you slacking off again?

Get ready, we're leaving soon.

[Eliot looks distraught at the command, and he lets his balloons float away. Jesse looks satisfied with himself.]

Eliot [Internally]: Wrong. He's a total slave driver!

Hey!
Look, it's a page! I had most of this page completed a while ago, but paid work makes slaves of us all.
Don't forget to follow me on twitter if that's the kinda thing you'd wanna do! @areyoshi

*I realize that it may be small on the web version; Eliot's saying, "Normally I'd be annoyed, but he's right."

Kicking off the new chapter!
Because it's been a while, I'd recommend going back and rereading chapters 8-10, at the least. Or, if you're feeling up to it, maybe it's time to reread the whole story!

If that's not what you're interested in today, why not check out my Patreon? More comics more quickly, every little bit helps! https://www.patreon.com/areyoshi

@Bloomer: Hey, thanks for the welcome back! Technically, we could argue that I am homeless right now, though, lol! Staying with a friend isn't what I consider having a home, per se, but it will do for now!

Sorry to gear about life but it's good to hear that it's kind of under control

Oh, nice! Welcome to the "I update sporadically because I have a job" club, once you join you never leave (because being paid is better than being homeless). :D

Also, welcome back!

It's been a while!
Hey, all! Please don't begrudge me the amount of time between updates this year. Life is hard, and such. I mostly take paid work at the moment (y'know, so I can live,) and it unfortunately takes away a lot of comic time.

ANYHOW, I have managed to make some progress on chapter 11, so I've decided to upload pages when I complete them. This means we won't be on a full hiatus; updates will be sporadic, but they WILL come.

Thanks for your patience! <3 Enjoy Illusion 11!

Eliot [internally]: You may be wondering what's going on here.

You see...

Four months ago...

[The panel concentrates on the balloons in Eliot's hand.]

Eliot [internally]: I tried to kill myself.

[Eliot appears in a bear suit, holding balloons in one bag and a shopping bag decorated with hearts in the other. There are alarmed looking pedestrians moving away from him.]

Eliot: Good morning, Shoppers!

[Eliot looks distraught again.]

Eliot [internally]: I lived... for this!?
