Fond of shipping, warm cups of tea, and magic.
@Oly-RRR: I'm glad you like the backgrounds(!!!) They're also pretty soothing to draw :3
@ILeninVelikyNamPutOzaril: I've been using a certain Very Common honda model as reference for their car because I used to have one. I don't any more so I'm relying a bit on memory and even more so on photos.
@CreepehCreep: Updates so slow right now I am Actually Living My Own Worst Fear uwu;;;;;
Important life update that's kinda messing with my drawing time right now: I got a new day job which... should actually help things here in the long run, but short term I still have a big freelance project I started while job hunting to wrap up '':| I delayed this page and I'm slightly ahead on the next one, but until I wrap things up I uhhh might be continuing to update kind of awkwardly off schedule just as I finish pages. Once I'm caught up I'm hoping to really focus my free time on keeping up a schedule. I'm hoping to maybe get a buffer going too, but I don't want to get ahead of myself there :u

I'm slow at responding to comments but seriously thanks for bearing with me. My life's been really exhausting and honestly kinda crummy the past couple months, but drawing pages every week has helped me keep something resembling a rhythm. I... probably would've had a lot of trouble keeping that up if I didn't know people were tuning in.
I'm trying very hard not to regret the plaid, it somehow takes like 5 years to add.
@JustCallMeJ: There definitely has to be something like that on amazon. Maybe 3? I couldn't find an actual audio book, but I could be looking the wrong place.
A rare happy boy.
A rare happy me because one: early, and two: ufo nessie.
@Oly-RRR: I would gladly take a nice jar and good dirt, together or separate. That's useful stuff :o
@Okami_117: I knew someone was gonna think of that '':V

I don't think there's a way to multitag folks, but there is a reason why I started out here instead of tapas. I really like and generally prefer it here :3
@RazorD9: I mean, I guess there's less atmosphere, but that's definitely not worth losing the internet.
@dracone: Oh man, thanks for catching that! Apostrophes are glitchy with the font I'm using so I need to draw them in manually... making them very easy to miss .-.;
My character's opinions do not reflect my own. I, for one, would love to belatedly go to wizard school despite being too old.
Happy new year, I didn't exactly plan for this to line up with new years but there's something nice and symbolic about it I think?

PSA: If you prefer it for any reason, we're now on Tapastic too, with... a ton more readers, too. I'm going to be updating at the exact same time on each, but if you like your pages high-res this is honestly still the best place to be reading.

Just going to make another reminder that we're on a bit of a break right now and the next chapter will start around the end of the month or the start of 2018.

I'm sure if you live in the US you've probably already heard about net neutrality ~a bunch~ but the FCC is voting on it in a couple of days. If you like using the net to look at independent content and art, losing it puts a lot of creators at risk. Net neutrality means treating all web traffic equally, and it's been the status quo for a long time for good reason. If you're able, please consider contacting your representatives and letting them know what you think. Even if the FCC votes to gut net neutrality, congress can block them from doing so.
Well, in spite of more delays than I wanted, there's the first chapter complete. I'm gonna have some filler up the next few weeks as I work on writing and planning, and hopefully chapter two will start either on 25th or the week after if the holiday season kicks my butt(!)
Backgrounds are time-consuming.

Fun fact and heads up: This chapter is almost done! There'll be a 2 week break afterwards while I get ready for the next one, but in the meantime there will some bonus content that... hopefully won't just be filler doodles.
@LemPem: Thanks! Hand is definitely fine now, but there were a few days where holding a pencil was tough '':o
Sorry for this [very] late update! I've had a really hectic and busy couple of weeks, complete with job interviews and burning my drawing hand while cooking '':/
On a brighter note, happy Halloween to everyone who celebrates and remember: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6089Z_NgPk
