This page is slated to be colored by Andy Goth.

A very quick life update: After 2 miscarriages, I finally gave birth to a beautiful baby daughter on October 5th. That is what has, and continues, to keep me away from regular comic updating. I haven't ended the comic, though, and do hope to finish it someday, if not with the speed with which I previously used to post. Thank you for reading!

Hello everyone,

I apologize for not updating the comic in a while, but I'm afraid it will not update for a while longer. I'm about a month away from giving birth at the moment - those of you who have followed author comments know this is our third and to date only successful attempt. I do plan to finish the comic sometime when I have more time, but right now that is not possible due to real life. Thank you for all your kind comments and I wish the best to all of you!
Haha, go androgynous Vincent. It's him both times. :)

This page was corrected, inked and coloured by Francesca, who did a wonderful job as usual! Wow, that colouring makes me actually *like* the Conformer weapon. :D Thanks again, and enjoy the page!
This page was coloured by Andy Goth. It looks fantastic, I love it! Thank you, Andy! :D

This page was corrected, inked and coloured by Francesca. I'm so amazed by how much better my lineart always looks when someone who knows what they're doing with a computer finishes it. Yuffie is so cute! And Vincent's poor nose probably has a bend in it now. Thank you Francesca, for helping me put out this page in a timely manner and making it worth waiting for! :D

Thanks. Real life keeps me very busy at the moment, but Francesca is graciously colouring the last page of this chapter so hopefully it won't be quite as long as the last wait.

very busy in RL right now

I emphasize with Yuffie's state of mind at the moment
Page 042 coloured!

Click that link! Andy did a mind-blowing job of colouring an earlier BW page, 42 - so if you want to see the Death Penalty in its full glory, take a look! Thank you, Andy. :D
This page was coloured by Andy Goth! My god, doesn't it look smoking now? So much better than the original! Thank you, Andy! *bows in supplication* :D

Neither am I, but it's like choosing between the two evils for me. Fortunately at this point in time the hosting question has degraded to the status of "I don't give a damn as long as people can read it"
Important request
For readers of this comic, I know I've said differently in the past. But please don't donate money to SmackJeeves for the sake of a donator code, even if you like this comic. I can't in good faith ask my readers to monetarily contribute to the SmackJeeves site anymore. Thanks, and my apologies.
Pre-pre-pre warning.
I'm thinking about moving "Growth" off of SmackJeeves. Don't worry, however, you'll all be copiously forewarned before any sudden URL switch is made.

Also, the grammar "error" was intentional so to speak, but thanks for the input. :)
To answer a question: my dog is a Schipperke puppy. Her name is "Maxi" which is short for the breeder-given name of "Celina Maxima" and she's just about 6 months old now. :)
My dog officialy hates this comic. She drools on the lineart, tries to eat my supplies when I'm not looking and gets upset if I spend more than 5 minutes at a time working on an image! XD
I was sicker than I thought. I'm mostly over the hump but still a little bit down with this persistent cough. Thanks for being patient!
Bleh, Borah
Sick like a dog, already on antibiotics, should be better in a week. Pages might be a bit slower forthcoming for a few days.

Is Borah really all bad? Is Bashiya really a nice old lady? Sure, Borah's got a Nanaki-sized chip on his shoulder, but his own mom did try to depose him. If we assume everyone in the tribe thinks about honor and duty the way Borah does, that could mean she *did* ask Nanaki to kill him.

Hey, I'd be mad too! But does that justify his behavior, especially to Nanaki? I'd like to hear what you guys think. :)
