I’ll do my best to smile, like you taught me to... ~Senior Past

"I'm not paying money for your CRIMES" I such a powerful line, I love it :O
Remember kids, we learn about government overthrow on Mondays and Thursdays! :)
"Get yourself friends who are cool enough to follow you to the literal end of the earth, and will also make you a cool prosthetic when you injure yourself with your own stupidity." -- Cecil, probably.

Good, energetic boy, kinda dumb but in a sweet way, probably gonna get us all killed but we still love and support him. :)

Cecil Info:

- Cat / feline
- Very very energetic
- His actual occupation is 'explorer', somehow
- He does, in fact, discover 'new' lands of sorts, mostly hidden islands that had been lost in centuries of folklore. He charts them and reports his findings to the Explorer's Geographical Society.
- Hard not to like. So honestly excited about anything and everything.
- No magical 'powers' or such
- Delphina powered his prosthetic using her light abilities. It recharges itself automatically and stores quite a bit of energy.
- He really wants Delphina to come exploring with him because he wants to show her how awesome the world is!! :D
Meet Delphina! I never gave her a proper ref to start with, so this is more of a design than a redesign.

Delphina Info:

- Cat / feline
- Has weak light powers that she inherited from her mother. Her great-grandfather was a spirit of light.
- Also has very strong healing powers, of unknown origin. She hypothesizes that they are an aspect of her light powers, but can't explain why her light powers are so weak in comparison.
- She works as a healer / medic at the local temple of healing, mending more serious injuries.
- Her middle name is Mirabelle
- She spent much of her life training to become a healer, and is skilled in non-magical medicine as well
- Sometimes seems to change in shape and size when angry or upset
- Especially close friends with a cocky cat named Cecil, who is an explorer. Cecil often tries to convince her to come on an exploration with him, and every time he asks, she seems a bit more hesitant to stay behind.
- Someday she might give in completely and set off with him to explore the world...
Verdant. big dumb dragon boy. :)

Verdant Info:

- Was not always a dragon, but will not answer as to what he was before. (It was a human haha)
- About 400 years old but is mentally about 20
- Theoretically immortal
- Has shapeshifting powers! Loves just sneakily wandering around society and life and appreciating it
- Has connections literally everywhere due to his wandering, but almost none of them know his "true nature" (aka that he's actually some weird shapeshifter dragon and not a normal guy named joe)
- Has the ability to give the gift of magic to mortals at the cost of some of his own energy, but he doesn't use it often because he's worried he'll screw up somehow
- Very driven by his emotions. Logic and reasoning shall catch up later when he has to deal with the consequences
- Myra is his BEST FRIEND and he will protect her!!

How his shapeshifting works:

- Can turn into any living thing, including both plants and animals,
- He can't turn into inanimate objects or other nonliving things
- His normal form (dragon) is about as big as a large horse.
- His shapeshifting allows him to change his size, as well. (Just become a smaller version of yourself!)
- When he becomes something larger than his normal form, his energy drains more quickly. A form a bit bigger than his normal form would barely be noticeable, but turning into an enormous beast the size of a three story building would completely drain him in less than a minute. His energy continues to drain as he stays in the form.
- Likewise, turning into a form smaller than his normal form conserves his energy. He can run for miles as a mouse.
- If he completely runs out of energy in a large form, he will fall unconscious and "collapse" back to his normal form.
@Sky207: She loves you, too!! :)
Some friends of mine were in a production of the Wizard of Oz, and I've been thinking about the time that I was in a production of the Wizard of Oz... Verdant and Myra were created as characters around that time, so I've been thinking about them a lot, too.

I kinda want to write their story someday, if I ever figure out a way to draw the pages without burning out so quickly. They're both good children,,, In the meantime I'll stick to making their redesigns, haha.

Myra Info:

- Cat, feline
- Grandfather on her mother's side was a spirit of light, so she has light powers!
- ...Buuuut, she's not very good making her light powers work.
- Lives as a priest in the temple of light which is actually a pretty chill job
- She practices with her powers as often as possible but can't seem to make much progress on her own
- Her powers work better when in the presence of a light spirit, or in the presence of her friend, a cat named Verdant, for some reason
- She loved to hang out with Verdant, he doesn't seem to care about her ancestry or lack of ability to use powers
- The entire flicking temple staff ships them but neither has a clue

When you no longer fear death and forget that other people might
Stranger danger! Time to run away!
Place your bets is the Sky gonna be helpful or unhelpful :))
I can't believe this comic is dead... (yes I can)

At this point, I think it was evident that this comic wasn't really going anywhere. I've lost motivation, and I don't feel connected with the story anymore... This was one of my first attempts at a comic when I joined Smackjeeves, and my inexperience shows. I was making it up as I went along. I had only a vague idea of where I was going with the story. I changed the plan for the entire plot multiple times after starting.

Most problematic, I tried to merge multiple stories together, and the result was anything but coherent. Verdant the Dragon and Rose the Flareon shouldn't have coexisted together, doing so made both characters worse. They deserved to be their own entities.

Maybe someday I'll revive Rose and the pokemon crew with a better planned, better written story. Perhaps my hastily written snippets about the lives of Verdant and Myra will take on a life of their own. But Waiting for Sunrise is not the story that I want to create.

For now, I'll be working on my other webcomic, titled Perhaps. I feel much more confident about the direction that is taking, as I have the entire plot storyboarded / planned, and the ''lyrics'' of several chapters already written out. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! I'll likely be rather busy irl as well, as I am taking a questionable amount of AP / college classes this year (despite the protests of literally anyone who has happened to inquire about my course load). If push comes to shove, academics will take priority, no matter how much I love making comics.

I apologise that this comic had to end like this, but I hope that all of you wonderful people who stuck around through this chaos have a wonderful summer! May your schedule allow for free time and may your comics gain lots of followers. <3
What would they do with the rabbit as a human anyway?
the decreasing sanity of the panels is made infinitely better by the presence of panel 5
Shiningstream!! It's rude to possess other cats!! >:(
I want to make a story of them... but I already have a project in process..... hmm..........
Have fun! :)
Friends that can punch through walls sure are helpful! :D
@Hardychuckle: It's always rhyming time~ :))
