Happy summer! AND the end of mercury retrograde-- it's been wild my guys. I'm starting to be more & more okay with taking breaks. And more & more okay with Not making promises.

I have one promise!!! One promise that matters. I'll always make this story for My heart first. Public second. It's too soon in the game to treat this like a job. i'm married to this story & a bitch gotta stay in the honeymoon period for a lil bit.

ASIDE FROM THAT--- NEW CHARACTER PROFILES!!! check out Maverick's parents. and his cats. I'm so excited to finally share these.

As always, thank you for your eyes & your hearts & your time.

I'll be back. Hopefully sooner than expected ; ,)

much much love,

mickey.
this PAGE..
..gave me a stroke. I'm not outrageously happy with the layout or the colors, but I don't wanna break my brain with it anymore. OPEN CRIT!!!! y'all are artists too!!! Can someone tell me why the colors seem /off/ compared to the last page?

Despite that, i'm very proud. There are a lot of personal easter eggs i hid in this page <3

thank you for reading, and I'll see you next week (even if the update is delayed a bit. I'm visiting my girlfriend for the week. She is highkey priority because I miss her)

as always, thank you for reading.

much much love,

mickey

@Sam: uwu https://tapas.io/series/we-stubborn-prideful-creatures !!!! The text is blurry as shit 'cuz I had to compress pages but! It's here! and hopefully more mobile friendly
@Xabel Mind: THANK YOUUUUUU!!!!! and thank you for sticking around. Always makes me smile when u leave kind words on my pages.
@Sam: <3 thank you so much for reading!!!! Very understandable about the navigation LOL. It annoys me too. I tried webtoon for a short while, but the upload requirements were too much of a hassle D: i had to save separate images and compress my files down waaaaayy low. It messed with image quality so much that I trashed it. Also I'm not crazy about the vertical format. TAPAS THO. YES. I have plans to publish on Tapastic very soon! I'll have to re-research controversy surrounding the site (I know a lot of creators ended up leaving for reasons). But I will let everyone know in a post when pages are available on a more mobile-friendly platform!
WOAH ok so
hiatus is DEFEATED!

look, this year was crazy. If you wanna catch up on the personal stuff, i'll be making a news post explaining some deetz.

otherwise, enjoy the update! my heart is so happy to be back, truly. I'm lucky to be healthier in love with everything. thank you all.

@Elaine P.: I LOVE YOU SO MUCH. And I'm so happy you found my little project!
This is all mine. From the storyboards to the pencils to the lines to the colors. And the site itself. It was definitely a feat, but it's my baby.
You have kindled so much of my creative energy. I'm so grateful. I haven't forgotten about that peacock you let me paint on my t-shirt. Those little things were monumental.
Can't wait to see you again soon. Thank you for seeking out my little corner of the universe. Much love
@samdad: LOL, maybe a lil biased. thank you <3 tell the cats I said hello
@Xabel Mind: THANK U LOL!!!! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

and thanks for the reference! I'll be sure to use it to triple-check my translations
SO MAYBE I HAVE FINALLY REALIZED.....
.
...that I can post little bonus comics in between updates to avoid overwhelming myself! AND satisfy my desire to post regularly on this page! wild.

Why haven’t I been doing this earlier? It’s a lovely way to get you all familiar with the cast without really spoiling anything. seeing as it will be a little while before we get into some serious character arcs.

In the bottom comic, Trace’s mom is asking where her earrings are, and he’s screaming back “UHHHHHH RIGHT HERE!” i think the visuals made that relatively easy to interpret, but it's always good to clarify. Also! I don’t speak Italian! I use a blend of ReversoContext and my friend Klaire (klairehumanoid on Youtube. she makes really amazing content guys!!!) for my educational Italian needs. Didn’t use her for this one ‘cause they were simpler phrases and seemed to repeat themselves verbatim when I google searched them in a sentence. Let’s hope I got it right.

Thanks for tuning in for this little intermission! did u like it?! what was your favorite of the three?

I’ll try to crank out an actual page for us next week <3

Until then, take care everyone.
@Xabel Mind: Right?! he didn't wear much color back then, so he compensated for it thru his accessories (he definitely had matching folder dividers) (and neon velvet fuzzy pencils) (and eraser toppers) (((don't forget the eraser toppers)))
@Baylee.k: i love that you love him omg<3 believe me, he'll have more smug lil shit moments.
OH!!!!SHIT!!!! OHHHHHSHIT!!!!!!
he smiles! and speaks! without being prompted!
Excited to move the story out of this godforsaken bus. can you tell i'm sick of drawing it? we're almost there tho! i'm kinda shocked, in the first drafts, this scene stretched out for 15+ pages. oof.

If you don't keep up with the news page, I mentioned my future upload schedule. It's pretty unlikely that I'll upload a page this upcoming sunday. School just started back up and I'm trying to avoid unnecessary stress and overworking. But hey! maybe I'll surprise myself. If anything changes, I'll let u know via news <3

thank you for reading! how did u all like this page?! let's hope the plot isn't too predictable. I know it's still early, but i think i'll manage to surprise some of you. at LEAST one of you. that's the goal! just one. then my mission will be complete.
ok ok i'm done. ńämåštæę xoxo
@seven: thank you for the warm welcome <3 Jada is a piece of work. i'm so eager to give her more dialogue!!
@Xabel Mind: THIS IS LATE BUT thank you so much!!!!!!! it gets harder to write the older I get, so i'm very happy it's still relatable LOL
GOTTA GO FAST
OKkAHHHHHHHH i don't have much time cuz ya girl's gotta pack and head back to school in a few. Hope u enjoy the update! i think this is my favorite page so far. i smiled so many times drawing it my cheeks hurt afterwards
