Reese is your average nineteen year old guy, working at his job and harboring a crush on the girl next door. A fairly empty life, by his own definition.

But one night, at a stop sign in the pouring rain, he's about to meet a dimensionally-displaced prince who will blow his world wide open.

--to say nothing of making it much more complicated.

And that secret crush on the girl next door?

Yeah. Things could get interesting.

No BL. Updates MWF.

Did I really never comment on this? Wow! I miss this comic - it introduced me to the world of webcomics I guess. Lol.

Thank you for the wonderful comic, whitechocolate.
And that is the end of chapter four and, essentially, the end of the webcomic portion for the foreseeable future.

Again, THANK YOU to everyone who read this and stuck around for the long absentee periods, and I sincerely apologize.

More on Monarchy can be found at, under the "Monarchy" tab.

Sorry for leaving it this way, and after so long, but updates would only be more erratic.

Thank you, again, for reading, and I hope you have got some enjoyment out of it. Heaven knows I liked writing and (usually) drawing it.

<3 all.

To everyone who stuck with it for this long: Thanks for sticking around.

@Galinda: Never mind, "bi yearly" is a far more accurate phrase. Hope you are doing well! :)
I came back to check on the comic today and I'm so excited to see so many updates. What's funny is I was just telling my hubby last night about your comic. Not sure how it came up but something must have brought it to mind. I'm sure you've been busy with college and life and all. nice to see you still do the comic from time to time though

Tern's being traditionally Tern-ish.
Change! I switched the text for Tern because I checked it and, as someone noted forever ago, it is pretty hard to read. I've got nostalgic attachments to it, but clarity is nice too, ne?

@Galinda: Bi-yearly? No, like... tri...monthly... ish? Heh, I have been failing lately. :) I missed you too.
@ninjakitties: Hello! Thanks for sticking around.

Ah, another one of your bi-yearly updates! Lol. (hug) Seriously though, we all missed you.

Yeah, Tern's a jerk. What else is new? :P
Good to see you back! Looks like I might have to re-read the archive to remember what's going on, though...
hi... :D?

If you ever get, um, tired of waiting for me to reappear, there are prequel short stories here:
They may be slightly spoilerific, but if you like putting pieces together in timely fashion.

The reason Monarchy is taking so long is I want to do right by Tern, and unfortunately, that means I do it when I want to. And... that can take a while. Sorry.

But thanks so much for sticking around and checking, if you do. Cause I'm glad if the comic makes anybody else happy. :)

In other news, Tern's a jerk. :D

In other other news, hi Galinda and 4thWarmasterKais. ^__^

Ahaha, you're mean, Reese. But technically, he doesn't . . . :3
Of hurry
Thanks for the welcome back. =) Can't make any promises on the update schedule.
*Thumbs up* T'is cool, can't wait for more :D

You're back! Oh my gosh, I missed you! <hugs> I thought you had abandoned us forever!

Eep! I want more!
I've got excuses, but no one wants to hear them, I'm sure. Thanks for sticking around, if you did, and sorry it takes... so long. =(

I've been reading through the archives over the last couple of days. The storyline entertains and the characters are strong.
Hurrah for Chocolate of White!
Also: I hope the poor staggery-man isn't too badly injured.
This is hopelessly late, but aren't cleaning supplies flammable/explosive?
Hi there, great comic and great plotline. I really like the way Tern talks :D
Good to see you back :D
He's been staggering up that hill for almost SIX BLOODY MONTHS.
Poor guy. I feel bad. No cliffhanger should last that long. <_<;
A major apology to all readers of Monarchy for dropping off the face of the planet. No promises of updates this time, since I'm mad at myself for not keeping them before.
Thanks for sticking around. <3
Who is coming?! OMG the suspense O.O
dun Dun DUN!
Gak! The cliffhanger must needs be un-cliffhanger-ized. I must know who is coming.

And Tern is amazing. As always.
