Erica is awesome!

Originally when I started this comment I was more sided with Annie's original perspective but the more I think about it, the more Erica is right about pride. Though I think it's a bit more complicated than that. Given all Annie has been through, both with the hospital and other people finding out and hurting her, it's not unreasonable for her to have that fear. I think it's more of a combination of pride that she's' come this far (which she very much deserves to have) and fear if anyone found out.

She really does need to continue to work on letting her friends and loved ones help more though.
Maybe one day that will be possible again, without it being exhausting.
The End of the Hiatus! ...Kinda
Yay a new chapter! So there's good news, and bad news. The good news is that I'll be posting stuff again and this comic will resume (although given how bad my drawing is some may consider this bad news). The bad news is that I don't know how frequent I'll be posting (at least for now). The goal is to post once a week until I rebuild my buffer, then realistically I should be able to get it to three pages a week (I'd like to be up to posting five days a week). The story is a bit different too, I know where I want it to go but I've been running into writer's block on and off, so that may cause delays too, plus you know... life and all that.

About the story! Title page looks a little unfinished doesn't it? Where's the wall color? Where are the character colors?! It's supposed to look like that, the story is darker. Remember, they just landed in some world they don't know and have no clue how they even got there. So yes... a REAL story is beginning to unfold, I hope you all like it. I apologize now in advance for the very, very bad drawing. It looks horrible, I hope that improves but let's face it, I'm bad at drawing.

Last thing, I periodically checked the stats while it wasn't updating and I'm surprised that there are still numbers. So thank you to all of you who kept coming back to check and those who started reading after it went on hiatus. I hope you all enjoy the story.
Preview!
A preview of what to expect when the comic comes back! Is that a new character? Or is that the return of an old character? You'll have to wait and see!

Thank you to everyone for reading this dopey little comic. I'm amazed at how many readers this comic has, especially since I figured maybe one or two, not where it's currently at.

So thank you again for taking the time to read this comic twice a week. I hope you continue to read my work with the other comic.

UPDATE: A chapter three WILL be happening. I don't know if there will be a hiatus anymore, it may just go straight into Chapter Three, really depends on how quickly I'm able to get the next set of pages done. It's likely going to stay with characters that look like characters.

However...

The next chapter will be very different. In addition to a slightly different style (not by too much though) it will be darker. Also, I'm switching for strips to a full panel page, 6 panels instead of three.

Honestly, it's a whole new comic! But I don't see a point in setting up a new comic thing, since it's the same characters and a continuation of this story.

So yeah, comic will continue!

UPDATE 2: I've been dealing with a lot of stuff lately, both on a personal level and a professional level. So as much as I want to continue the comic, I haven't had a chance to write anymore, let alone draw. The comic will be taking an indefinite hiatus. I'm not sure when it will come back, maybe one day, but for now this is the end.

I do have a Deviant Art account that I post on, so I will try to post on there when I feel up to drawing. You can find it here: http://downpourofrain.deviantart.com/
Hiatus Time!
So yeah, the strip pretty much says it all. As much as I'd love to keep doing this comic as well, the other comic does take up most of my free time so it's unreasonable to keep doing two.

As soon as I have the link, I'll post it for the other comic! In the meantime, I will leave you with one more page next Tuesday, a preview if you will. Then it will officially be hiatus time.

I hope you enjoy it!

Poor Bird
That house vanished fast! Apparently all it wanted was to devour the house and everything in it. That residual wormhole energy can be fatal to small creatures though.

Just Slip Away
When the walls start breaking apart it's probably time to make a decision. Would you jump in? They could have tried to jump through the wall where it's broken. Odds are they never would have escaped anyways, but you never know.

Oh Look a Wormhole!
Or a blackhole... death on a stand! But then there goes the music, noooooo! Yeah, I might instinctively dive for it too.

In the third panel, the characters are still there, just the focus is on the stereo and ghost.

Well Then
I guess a big wish does come with consequences after all. The ghost is still my favorite character. She's funny, just watching this bad thing happen from upside down. The fact that the character looks a bit different is actually on purpose. He looked a little too much like another character from another comic. This is what happens when I don't think about the look before hand and just draw.

The hair really needs work. But that's okay. This was meant to see what I need to work on. Chances are, the hair on the characters on the other comic look a LOT better.

Is That?
It IS! It's a character that looks like a character! It took 21 strips to get there but it's finally there! I imagine there might be some jealousy though since one character looks better than the other. But after being tossed around so much (haaah), he deserves it!

I wonder if such a big wish has any consequences...

UPDATE 2: I've been going through some stuff, depression, etc. In short, I've barely written an outline for any pages. I have a few other projects that need attention as well, so what little energy I can find to put into personal projects has been going into that. I don't know when Chapter Three will be happening, but my buffer is almost out as we bring this chapter to a close soon.

I'm sorry if it takes a break for a bit
Pllllleeeeeaaase?
Yeah if my friend (or co-adventurer) was turned into a tennis ball, I'd be pretty tempted to use them for a quick game too, especially if they were just about to get their body back anyways.

"Please? Just give me this one thing!"

Oh oh! New change coming next strip! I'm still not sure if I like how it turned out but... you'll see next update!

The Glowing Orb of DOOOM
It's SO doomful that it has 3 "o"s, yup that's pretty doomful! Doesn't seem that bad right? Maybe things will work out?

I like to include songs I'm listening to as I'm writing the script (just because I plan it out twenty minutes before I'm about to draw it doesn't make it any less a script! Sometimes I even write it a whole day or two before). So that song is "Off With Her Head" By Icon for Hire. I wonder if I can embed a video in my comments?


Also yes... that stereo totally has a tape deck. Oh cassettes...

Upside Down and All Around
That would be so much fun! Just chilling upside down, not a care in the world.

So yeah... once that new comic starts, comments may not be as playful, you have something like a month left to enjoy these. But the comments of the other comic will likely be more enlightening and relevant to the comic, perks of having an actual story that's thought out well and all.

Look! Transparent speech bubbles! See? I am getting kind of okay at this whole making a comic thing!

Pfft let's not kid ourselves, it still looks... bad. But at least the text is readable, so that's something? Right?
_______

UPDATE: That new comic... "Scars"... it won't be happening. It's... taking another form instead. So it won't see the light of day for a little bit still but it WILL come into existence.

As for the fate of this comic? I have no idea. If I did bring it back for a third chapter... I have an idea but it wouldn't take on the playful tone it has now, it would be darker. I don't know if I have the time though and if it would be worth it given how dramatically my readership has decreased as of lately.

So in short, no other comic and this one might come back for a third, darker, chapter... if the interest appears to be there.
Ok So I Didn't Deliver
I thought I would save that for... well, you'll see in about another 4 strips I think. If I was suddenly a ghost, I'd totally take advantage of the floaty thing too! One of the few perks.

Soooo new comic should have started up by now... maybe? If not it means I'm working on creating my buffer, so November it'll be up if that's the case. This comic should keep you company until then, after all it's actually getting better now!
Just a Reminder: Hiatus Soon
We're getting closer, almost at the halfwayish point for this chapter.

This is my favourite strip so far in the comic, it still makes me laugh. I've been listening to a lot of Pink Floyd lately and as soon as I wrote the line "Anybody out there" I knew this strip only had one direction to go (even though it's not quite that line but whatever). They look really confused don't they?

Next time: More expressive characters! (I hope)
Not Just a Comic
Yeah, so never say that to someone who creates things, no matter how bad it is. No matter what it is, art is a part of the creator (whether they want it to be or not). She's really freaking out though isn't she? My favorite panel so far in this whole comic is the first one on this strip. I LOVE her expression, it turned out exactly how I wanted it to. I can't same the same for the last panel, I couldn't get her mouth just right so I left it off, and that made me sad.
Obsession
So yeah, I kind of obsess over this comic. I wasn't SUPPOSED to care about this comic, it was meant as a sandbox to get my drawing skills where I want them to begin the other comic. Somewhere along the way I started to give a damn about this one and now I kind of obsess. If I was actually trapped inside the comic and realized someone else took control of it, I think I'd be freaking out.
Old Joke is Old
But I couldn't resist. It had to be done. But what of this development? What the O.o what do you mean there's an ACTUAL story? Yeah I write now... apparently that's a thing.
Stupid Characters
Trying to boss me around... yup, even my own characters are trying to tell me what to do. Well SCREW YOU I'm just going to make things worse! Then the damn tennis ball has to go break the vase with the pretty flowers, I told you to LOOK not touch >_<

Kids these days...
What If...
...Body paint was actually radioactive human blood dyed different colours? That would be so gross... it's not (as far as I know) but still, ugh.

Situation is not looking good for them though. Then again LOOK AT THE PRETTY FLOWERS!
