Congratulations on the partial recovery Missveryvery! I can safely say that the other readers and I are ECSTATIC that you've recovered enough to draw again!

But as a fellow artist, I must implore you not to overtax your arm! Take it slow and don't be pressured to churn out weekly comics! I'd much rather see fewer updates than you never regaining full use of your arm.

While I can't express my feelings well in words, please know that my prayers are with for a speedy recovery, and also know no one can hold it against you if you need to slow or even stop updates again if your arm and mind need time to fully heal.

Thank you for all the work you do and I hope that your recovery continues!

Sincerely,

I'd just like to take a moment to say I am absolutely digging how Samekh is doing Naima's hair.

Also, I like how Naima at least had the foresight to know she needed help to reclaim the throne. That shows she knows her limits.
Well... There it is then...
In order to protect his cousin and give him freedom he'd never have... He took the mantle of "Monster", so Naima could take up the mantle of "Hero"...

Reminds me of the opening and closing numbers of "Wicked", "No One Mourns The Wicked" and "No One Mourns The Wicked, Reprise". The opening is celebratory as the the citizens gleeful proclaim the wickedness that terrorized them is dead. And the closing the tone is mournful, as the audience has learned that the "Wicked Witch" who - and very much like Zarkis - was not wicked through and through, but only wanted to help those she loved and who needed it.

Yep this ends in the tears we've already seen.
Yay! You're back! And it looks like Nilus was out shopping during the break!
That is good news! Good to hear you have such an accommodating boss!

And with that said, take your time and only work on V7 as you are able. V7 - while fun for everyone involved - probably doesn't make you a ton of money, so be sure to secure your primary sources of income so you can work on V7 without worry.

And don't worry about late updates, I'm sure most (if not all) of us can wait patiently for updates.

Also, loving the progression of the story. I'm betting Djordi actually overcomes the hurdles Django made for him and comes on that trip. I say that because the hilarity that could ensue would be awesome to see.

Three things...
One, Happy Holidays everyone! I'm going to SUPER busy this season, so I'm Saying this now in case I end up being unable to post until January.

Two, This entire scene from the visual innuendo with the hot dogs, to the discussion about the vacation has me feeling everything from being a bit hot in the face to warm fuzzies.

Three, for goodness sake Django, stop staying stuff like that *before* the fact! Haven't you learned by now that when ever you say stuff like that Mindscape shenanigans are guaranteed to happen?!

Back! Sorta...
After several weeks of dealing some rather nasty personal issues, I finally got some time to catch up on my stories.

Considering the last page I saw before Met Hats started hitting the fan was the one where Django clocked out in the Mindscape, I had quite a few pages to read!

First up, you've solidified my love for the "Real World" coloring style. It just works. And it does so well.

Next, I've gotta say I'm really liking how supportive Troy is being after hear about Django's issues. For being such a good boyfriend, I'm giving Troy an 11 because we needed to go one higher than 10.

As for the last couple of pages, I'm going to go ahead and triple that three strawberry macaroon bet I made back on update #236. Howard is just too close to Django for this not to be discovered by him. As for how Howard will respond to the relationship? I'm no where near that brave of a of gambler.
Do I control you? >.> <.<

Nope! Of course not! Why would think that I would use a combination of microtech and post hypnotic suggestion to control you? I definitely don't do anything like that!

...

Also, ignore that buzzing in your ear while I comment on today's updates. It's probably just your computer's fan anyway.

And Patient, please don't pick up the Idiot Ball. If Wife learns all your defenses, they're going to be useless if/when she double crosses you. Still, it IS time to get to a rest point. We don't want Django having ANOTHER traumatic wake up call next time he enters his mind right after this little outing ^_^;;
Took a haitus? No problem! Everyone needs a break every now and then.

-places elbows on the table and rests hand on my mouth while looking and thinking hard at the group's actions-

I don't trust Wife an inch - and I'm halfway expecting that she's actually using her guilt powers subtly to get the others to help her - but her being one of the Voices, I'd say her dying before things get fixed would be worse for Django if she died before hand.
Well. I''m impressed. Especially with Vile - but maybe that Mighty No. 9 and RED ASH talking ;)
Have fun!
Here's hoping that you have a good expo!

And I want to see photos (if you feel like it)!

And like Blackchick said, pace yourself so you don't burn out - and be sure to drink lots of fluids when in costume!
*SQUEEEEEE*
Hahaha! Oh - this is just too funny! The Angry chibis sell the anger and frustration perfectly. On that note, since Django has the hammer, is Troy going to get "nailed"?

-check the oneshots-

*oof*

-sticks tissue in my nose-

Those one shots were very good - and EXTREMELY hot.
Okay Tanks and DPS, remember to keep aggro off the Healers while they're doing there job on this escort mission.

But on the strip itself, it seems we have entered an area of Django's mind we haven't seen before, or Broken becoming active is causing stuff to look dead - because the trees and grass when they went into the Cathedral back in Chapter 9 were were extremely lush and well kept rather than the untamed grass and bare trees we're seeing here.
Since we generally see the boys in more relaxed and/or tranquil scenarios, I'm going to be slightly sadistic and say I'd love to see a domestic scenario (like having to assemble or repair something or figuring out how to do/use something with inadequate directions) that Django and Troy both find extremely frustrating.

EDIT: Plus the fact such frustrating moments can lead to anger and such anger leads to hot, sweaty, passionate make-up sex.
Aaaaand cue awkward silence!
But seriously, these kids need a hug.

Hopefully sharing their stories with each other will lighten their loads a bit.
Yeah... Like that injury totally isn't going to become a problem later.

But I will say that is rather a clever use of a candelabra. Apparently it doesn't always pay to be a nightmarish zombie-puppet-corpse thing that's missing most of its neck and head.
I'm surprised those flowers aren't wilting...
... Because of how hot this scene is.

*ahem* With that off my chest, I'm withholding my final judgement of Claude because, honestly, I'm rather not fond of ANYONE thinking of Sergio as "Demon-spawn" (as technically Sergio's parents were human - as far as I know) - be they the super-hot boyfriend/lover of a equally hot - albeit super awkward - main character.
@Guest I honestly don't know. I had assumed a father and son relationship (or at least a familial one) rather than a lovers' relationship since both Aedh and Julius refer to Cornelius and Sergio, respectively, as "darling". And Julius and Sergio being lovers is something I would NEVER consider (Seriously, Julius is literally Sergio's Great-great-great-great-great Grandfather - although I might be off a "great" or two.)
Nice bonus page. I love it when characters that aren't meta get extremely so in bonus drawings.

Also, might I suggest, as a way to help with your workload - and the fact that I love these sketchbook-style pages - is to do a slow paced, meta series in this sketchbook style that explains some of your non-spoilery ideas about the series that might not be apparent (like "Incubus' favorite kink" or "What each voice represents and if they have mundane uses of their [powers that aren't plot spoiling]"), or perhaps "Rules of the Universe" (e.g. "What are the limits of the voices individual powers - so long as it does spoil some plot point") that you have written down somewhere.
