Once upon a time, in a land of weather that could not make up its mind for very long, there lived an English major named Beth. She had a large problem with procrastination and yet somehow managed to get things done. Usually. Beth had all sorts of adventures with her imagination...

Uuuugh. Excuse me while I apologize profusely.

So yeah, this semester has been rocky at best, and it's once again taking a toll on the comic. Here's a rough of the page, just in case I can't have it finished for tomorrow. I want to get the finished one up sometime this week, though.

As much as I hate having to miss updates and take breaks from the comic, it'll probably be spotty for a while yet. I have a three-day weekend coming up, though, and if I can finish a bunch of assignments and still have time left over, I'm going to try and play catch-up.

If you want to keep an eye on the progress, I'll try making regular little updates at the Abaddon tumblr.

Thank you, everyone <3

Del: Haha! Where are vast quantities of water when you need them, eh? (:

Kaiyaweird: Hahaha, the clip is so worth the poor quality. Thank you! AND I AGREE, THE ACTION NEEDS TO START!

Lingus: I think that's what makes April Fools Day is my favorite holiday when it comes to webcomics :D

muddasatyr: Hahaha, I was wondering if that was you, but I wasn't sure.

The real deal
Okay, okay, so the jig is up. Here's the REAL page five. Sorry, Gilbert!

For those not in the know, yesterday's little gag was based on this notorious round of Hollywood squares. (The quality isn't that great, but it's SO worth it.) I actually miss this show. It was full of laughs, many of which were supplied by Mr. Gottfried (If you still don't know who he is, he provided the voice for Iago in Disney's Aladdin)

Glad you enjoyed (:

OH HEY ALSO, HAPPY NATIONAL POETRY MONTH!

OKAY RESPONSE TIME!

Kaiyaweird: Hahaha, hopefully today's explanation clears it up some <3

Lingus: Excellent! Feel free to chime in whenever, I love hearing from people heehee

Del: He'll bring them to the mercy of his stand-up! And I'm going to have to agree. I, too, would love to see them chased by the Stay-Puft Marshamllow Man!

Lucky-Raincloud: Muwahahahaha! You are very welcome!

Guest: Oh man, the bacon and cheese sounds sooooooooo worth the impending heart attack. Sandwich with cheese + bacon = everything is better.
Gottfried!
Oooh, so THAT'S what they look like up close. You four had better RUN.

Seeya next Wednesday!

Responses!

Kaiyaweird: Thanks! I had to look at a bunch of refs to get it right ahahaha

Del: You are so worthy! Cheese is good. Art museums are good! I have to go to two for two different classes this week YOWZA

RedNoseDog: She just gets herself into all sorts of trouble! And oo, I like the chapter covers idea. Thank you!

Claws
Nice reaction there, Raye.

In other news, I have various power metal songs stuck in my head. Yeah, I think that's about it.

RÉPONSES:

Kaiyaweird: I think if a giant square of ramen was chasing me, I would pee myself. And run, of course, run! And yeah. I don't think there have been any major announcements that I posted there instead of here, but I do not want to leave anybody out of the loop! I'll probably just try and make it so there's a sidebar or something throughout the site where little news things would go. And yes, this does help! Thank you! :D

RedNoseDog: Yeah, that's what I usually like that setup for, too. Though like Kaiyaweird mentioned, it can also potentially spoil things, so I am a bit torn hahaha. Thank you for the input!

da-kasha: Awww, now I'm blushing (:

Del: &#9835; Updaaaaaaates on my shouldeeers make me happyyyy! &#9835;

muddasatyr: WHOOOO! Hahaha, you must've had a fun St. Patty's day

Hoo-boy
OH, THE BUILD UP!

Okay, announcement time. I wasn't very productive on the comic front this week due to another project. That said, I'll only be able to post one page a week for a while. I'll be sloooowly making my way through more of chapter 4, and hopefully the one-a-week schedule will help me in my game of catch-up. Expect pages on Wednesdays.

Man, and I really need to catch up on my comic-reading, too.

There is also another thing I wanted to mention. I asked this in the comments on the home page, since it has to do with it, but Ti brought up some good points.

First off, fellow Smackjeevers: when checking on the comic, do you only come in through your favorites page, or do you stop by at the home page, too? I'm curious since I might have to make announcements there that wouldn't necessarily warrant a "filler" page, and when I (eventually) redesign this place, I want things to be accessible for everyone.

Second, and this is a question for Smackjeeves and non-Smackjeeves readers: would you like to see the latest page on the home page? Thoughts and suggestions are more than welcome.

Anyway, RÉPONSES:

Del: Wisdom teeth are the bane of human existence!

RedNoseDog: Thanks! I have so much fun with the glowy things

Kaiyaweird: RAmen!

Break on the horizon
Heeeeeello, folks. Sorry for missing on Friday. This semester has been insaaaaaaane and I just haven't been feeling it lately. (Remember that week I supposedly took off from the comic to catch up? Yeah, that went towards homework and the like.) Anyway, new page for today, but it is unlikely there will be one on Friday. The good news is, next week is spring break. Which means I'll actually have time to do some catching up for the comic. Hooray!

I think yesterday was Vince's birthday. Happy birthday, Vince! Now get back to being afraid of the dark.

RÉPONSES:

Stig: Aww, thank you!

Del: I imagine death by chocolate would be the most pleasant of deaths. Except for somebody that's allergic. Then it would kind of suck.

Kaiyaweird: And it's a game I love playing!

The path to somewhere!
Ladies and gents, this marks the return of colored pages! I was so excited while doing the clean-up and lettering for this. Coloring was a lot easier to do than I remembered, though it did mean an extra couple of hours of work. I do believe it is worth it, though. Even though...well...this is probably super late according to most time zones (though not mine!)

Gawd, I feel like I've been away from this forever. But I am super stoked to get this chapter started. It's a bit shorter than the last two, but IT MIGHT BE ACTION-PACKED?! I dunno. We'll see.

I really don't know where all my extra time goes. My vote is homework and the like.

RÉPONSES:

Del: I did enjoy the rhyme! And nothing beats those chocolate pies with the whipped cream topping...I can't even remember what they're called but they are amaaaaaaaaaaazing

Kaiyaweird: I bet they played a rousing game of pin the tail on the cranky jerk in the tuxedo t-shirt! (Poor Elijah gets no respect)

muddasatyr: Thank ya! I will toast to that!

One Year Old!
So yesterday, Abaddon officially turned one year old. Woohoo! That went by pretty fast. Here's a silly little picture to celebrate. I wanted to get it up yesterday, but I am slow.

Chapter 4 officially begins on Wednesday!

RÉPONSES:

Kaiyaweird: Thank you! I wanted to use a nice bright color for this one hahaha

Del: Pringles make the tastiest fake duck bills!

Ti: THEY'RE BREAKIN' THE BORDERS! Haha, and hey, no worries. I update like a snail, so there is no rush

This comic is beautiful! Poor Penelope, though D: Can't wait for the next story to start up

As for guilty pleasures...uh...probably watching Ghost Hunters haha
BANANA!!!

Oh man, I love the posters. Science teachers are great because they're always so enthusiastic
Chapter 4
Wait--what-WHAT?! I posted something ON TIME?! Wonder of wonders--oh, no wait, it's just a title page.

So hey, is everybody ready for Chapter 4? Oh...oh, really? Cos I'm kind of not. But hey, here we go getting it started anyway!

Did this one straight on the computer, so my "inking" is super lazy. Listened to Runrig and Bad Religion while working on it <3

RÉPONSES:

Del: Now see that? That is some smart thinking!

muddasatyr: Excellent! More for my army of destruc--I mean...thank you, welcome aboard!

Kaiyaweird: Oh man, that WOULD be awesome. But unfortunately, I did not ): Still, I can dream
Nice Office
Aaaaaaaaaaaand we have Uriel. This'll probably be the last one. I dunno. I need to get started on drawing the actual pages, so there might be one more o' these.

RÉPONSES:

Del: HUZZAH!
Pringles Man
Today's victim, as requested by Del, is Lars. Because he looks like the Pringles guy. GET IT?!

Yeah, this one's kind of recycled from an...older version of Beth Reports...yeah.

ANYWAY, RESPONSES TO PREVIOUS COMMENTSSSS:

Kaiyaweird: IT IS ADORABLE AND I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE MORE!

Del: HERE YA GO! Uriel'll probably be in the next one hahahaha
Perry SMASH puny patrolman!
(I...I'm sorry, I just couldn't resist!)

Anyway, I love all the dynamic angles in these pages
Ooooooh my god, that first panel. This totally made my day
Beth Reports...ROUND TWO!
OH GAWD, NOT THIS CRAP AGAIN!

This is what I do when I need to stall for time. I harass characters from the comic. Sometimes hilarity ensues. Usually...not so much. If there is anyone from the comic you would like to see...interviewed...request away! I'll probably be doing this all week (I'm so, so sorry).

PREPARE TO BE DISAPPOINTED!

ANYWHO, RESPONSES TO PREVIOUS COMMENTS:

RedNoseDog: Thank ya! I think I'm being subconsciously influenced by Order of Tales. His scenery is absolutely breathtaking.

Del: Haha, with my level of procrastination, that is something that need not be worried about! AND MY, THAT SUNBEAM LOOKS COZY!

Lucky-Raincloud: HE IS PROBABLY NAPPING IN HIS FAVORITE CHAIR
EATING A SANDWICH...WHILE NAPPING
OH, DAGWOOD

Kaiyaweird: Thank you! And I just love using cheesy pick-up lines for those things. They just suit Milo so well

End Chapter Three
Well, here you have it, folks. The last page of chapter 3. I'm really glad I took the extra time on this that I did, but I still wish it could have been in color. I'm going to need to work out some time where I can go back and color all the uncolored pages (and I've probably been saying that for like, a month now.)

I may end up posting a bit of filler next week (possibly more Beth Reports?) to give myself a chance to get started on the next chapter.

Also! In case you missed it, there was a little something silly posted yesterday!

Happy trails, my ducks.

MILOTINE '09
IS EVERYBODY ENJOYING THEIR VD GREAT WONDERFUL!

So this travesty is a tradition I've been doing for the past couple of years. If you'd like to see Milotines from previous years, you can take a look here!

The actual page will most likely go up sometime tomorrow morning, bringing the END OF CHAPTER THREE! Shock and horror!

RESPONSES TO PREVIOUS COMMENTS!!

Del: EXCELLENT! It's like the circle of life! ...kindasorta.

Kaiyaweird: I will avoid sneezing people like the plague! Which is probably why they are sneezing, oh gawd!

Lucky-Raincloud: YEAH, I HEAR HE'S PRETTY HANDY TO HAVE AROUND WHEN THE POWER GOES OUT

Almost there
Haaaaaaaa I totally just finished inking this maybe a half hour ago. I should probably get started on Friday's page, but schoolwork takes precedence ): I really, really miss being able to color these, though. I'll probably end up taking a break for about a week after the final page of Chapter 3 goes up (this Friday!), just as a heads up.

I also have something cooking that will probably go up on Saturday. If I don't run out of time first. I AM DETERMINED, I AM.

Responses to previous comments:

Kaiyaweird: I am glad too! Now to take precautions to make sure I do not fall ill again...

Del: AAAH! I AM FLATTENED! Momma always did say not to play in oncoming traffic.

Eurgh
Eurgh, I really dislike this page.

Anyway, hey! I made it! Still shaking off bits of sickness, but feeling a lot better now. Apparently I had a really bad cold (maybe possibly the flu?) and was coughing so hard...that I damaged my ribs. So it would hurt whenever I coughed. SO FUN! Health services at my school was of very little help, too.

BUT OKAY, BACK NOW. Maybe I can do some marathon coloring THIS weekend. Maybe. Still trying to work out some schedule things. There are only TWO pages left in this chapter, though! I still don't know yet if I'll need to take a little breather to work on chapter four, BUT I do have something fun in mind for a certain holiday next week. STAY TUNED!

Responses to previous comments:

Del: I SEE THE LIGHT and it is very bright!

Kaiyaweird: Thank you! I think with another day to recuperate, I will be ready TO TAKE ON THE WORLD AGAIN...or...you know, just...the day

Pomato Soup: Awww, thank you (: I'm glad you like the comic and welcome to the party!
