I make a lot of art and I go by the name Yubria … but you’ve probably already figured out that much. I’m really into making fantasy comics, and if you’re into fantasy/horror you should maybe check out my webcomic, broken. It’s about fairies fighting eldritch abominations and fun stuff like that.

Other art that gets posted on my art tumblr may include things such as: another one of my stories, currently going by the name Whisper (subject to change at any given moment); doodles from our D&D campaign (check out Dice2CU on Twitter/Tumblr/iTunes), Guild Wars 2 fanart, Pokemon fanart, and occasionally other things that strike my fancy.

Alright, update on the next update: I'll spare you ugly details, but some unfortunate things happened and I've been exhausted and miserable for the last two weeks. I'm gonna have to take a longer break, maybe another 1-2 weeks? I'm not sure though, so I'll keep Twitter updated.

“Good at flying” is a bit of an understatement.

ALRIGHT so I didn’t want to do this right in the middle of getting the update schedule back on track, but turns out I suuuuper need a mid-chapter break. I’ve been having a rough time getting though the last few pages and I’m really stuck sketching the next one even though it’s a really easy page? Like, “it’s mostly headshots” easy but it feels impossible to figure out so ANYWAYS, time for a quick two week break to recharge, enjoy my birthday, and FINALLY get to play Breath of the Wild (my birthday gift to me. I’ve been dying to play it since it was announced). Updates will resume on the 5th. I’m going to try to do a few concept art streams for Patrons because I’m starting to poke at the next chapter and boy howdy is there a lot of concept art that needs to be done.

As always, I’m thankful for everyone’s support and patience, and I’m glad you’re enjoying the story so far. <3

Thanks for the 3 year congratulations, everyone! Not going to lie- knowing that a bunch of other people are invested in this story & these characters gives me a huge boost to motivation when working on it. I SUPER APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT whether it's through Patreon, commenting, sharing, etc. it's all a huge help and it means a lot to me. I will add that if you like broken, please consider supporting me on my Patreon - not only will you get to see more art, but we'll all get more frequent updates! We're sitting a little over halfway to the goal of +1 update per month and I think it would be really fun to start progressing the story a little faster.

ALSO speaking of story progression, I think I've mentioned that this next chunk is exposition? Which is kinda really important to understand moving forward. Please let me know if the dialogue doesn't make sense so I can fix it.

FINALLY is this the first time we've had a decent shot of Yin's wings? I think it is. His wings are my favorite.

Hey guess what broken turns 3 years old on Friday! I'm definitely going to do something special for it (especially since I may or may not have missed it last year). My current thought is to maybe do an art stream for everyone on Friday night (normally just for Patrons) doodling the characters, but I'm super open to suggestions.
June 17th, 2018
I'm glad you're all enjoying the change of scenery, because I know I am (although I'm already tired of drawing grass :P).

Also my husband started learning to flat pages for me with this update which is SUPER GREAT.

Thanks for your patience with that impromptu 2 week break- work's been a bit hectic lately, there were some last minute script things I had to work out, and this update ended up being waaaaay more work than I anticipated. But hopefully it was worth the wait.

I think it's funny that the three things I've been looking forward to the most so far- Yin being named, making that dumb "nice to meet you" joke, and the two of them coming here- ended up being in three consecutive updates. That's been pretty nice since, with webcomics, you usually have to wait FOREVER between the big fun parts. We're also gonna get a nice chunk of worldbuilding (...I feel like there's a joke there, since Yin literally built the "world" they're currently in) starting SUPER SOON so some of your questions will be answered shortly! Actually, if ya'll have specific questions about the world, feel free to post them and I'll keep them in mind for future stuff. I don't like talking about a lot of info outside the story because it's easier for me to keep track of what's been said in the comic itself, and I want to make sure you can understand everything just fine without needing anything outside the comic.

I'm glad ya'll are enjoying these two dorks because honestly, one of my biggest pet peeves is when stories (mostly movies come to mind, since I haven't had much time to read lately) throw two characters together and at the end it's like "THE POWER OF TRUE LOVE/MAGIC OF FRIENDSHIP BECAUSE THE PLOT SAID SO" and I'm like "YOU LITERALLY MET YESTERDAY AND YOU'VE BEEN YELLING AT EACH OTHER THE ENTIRE TIME." It's like it's a requirement that main characters who share screentime are required to be friends/lovers by the end, regardless of how much chemistry/time/development is actually there? IMO they need reasons to care about each other, or at least to want to be around each other. I have a lot of feelings about this, but apparently my body is continuing the trend of "let's be really tired on Sundays" so I can't think of words right now. What do ya'll think?
May 6th, 2018
Ya'll, I'm so very happy we're at this part and I feel like I have things to say, but TBH I'm not feeling well right now (I've been inexplicably sleeping horribly and my stomach is suddenly unhappy for no reason???) so...I dunno, I might post something on Patreon/Tumblr/Twitter later this week. I feel like I need to celebrate somehow now that we got to the part where Yin can kinda talk and has a name, but I don't know. Maybe I'll find and post some early art? If ya'll have any low-effort suggestions, I'd love to hear them.

Fun story: I've been on a creepypasta kick lately. It's weird listening to multiple stories describe how creepy a character with no eyes/etc is while this kid meets most of those descriptions and everyone (as far as I've seen in the comments) thinks he's adorable. XD
April 22nd, 2018
So the site wasn't displaying images last update, but it does that sometimes and then fixes itself. Thanks to JoKeR and Riverfox237 I realized that this time the entire host site just...disappeared? Or went down for over a week? IDK I haven't looked into what happened to it specifically. Point is, I moved things to a new image host, and I think it's working fine now (please let me know if it's not).

Also, guys, you've been leaving lovely comments lately and I just wanted to let you know that yes, I'm terrible at replying because IDK what to say but please know that I always see them and they make my heart very happy. <3

AND YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE MAKES MY HEART HAPPY? A couple days ago I glanced at the next page to see which one it is and holy crap you guys, next page officially starts a part I've been DYING TO GET TO FOR . . . IDK but it's probably been years at this point. And not only are we finally there, but I'm super happy with the layouts and pacing for the next chunk of pages so . . . yeah, I'm super excited.

In case you haven't seen it elsewhere already, I got a new job last week and I'm enjoying it so far, but it may or may not affect comic updates until I get used to a very different schedule. I will try to keep ya'll updated on Twitter at the very least.

Getting into this section reminds me of how much I love libraries. I spent sooooo much time in libraries and taking home tons of books to read when I was a kid- some of my favorites were comic books like TinTin and Calvin & Hobbes. Most of the time I didn't want to wait until we got home, so I'd read in the car on the way home...through winding mountain roads...often on hot summer days...unfortunately thanks to that I still get carsick easily if I try reading. XD It wasn't helped by my mom and sister always eating sour gummy worms (the smell still makes me feel nauseous). How about ya'll? Any fun/interesting library/book stories?
April 3rd, 2018 just occurred to me it's now canon that establishments named things like "Hair Helper," "Hardware World," and "Harold's Happy Hour" exist in this world and I'm not entirely sure how I feel about that.

ALSO I'm very glad ya'll are enjoying more hugs since there are definitely gonna be more of those in the future and maybe this chapter. I thumbnailed about half of Ch4 this weekend (instead of doing the page on time or doing one of the many good April Fool's jokes my husband & brother in law came up with (maybe one day I'll remember April Fools)) and I'm VERY EXCITED about things coming up in the very near future. Like "in a couple weeks" near future, not "webcomic time" near future. Like, "we're going to the library next update and that's where a lot of this stuff takes place" near future and it's weird but thrilling to think we made it this far in the story. Progress!

@The Rocktopus: Fun fact: Shotguns are used for both military and sporting purposes hunting birds, small game, and deer. They have an effective range of 50ish yards when using shot, 100+ yards when using a slug, and significantly more than that when using magic. What kind of range you get depends on your gun, your ammo, how good you are with the gun, and how powerful your magic is.

Hey, thanks for your wonderful comments at the end of Ch3, everyone! Not gonna lie, I was worried about how that part would work out, especially since Ch3 ended up changing DRAMATICALLY from the original script. But now that that's done, I'm super excited about pretty much everything happening in Ch4 (which hopefully won't change much since it's basically all stuff that was supposed to happen in the last one :P).

Two sort of announcement things:
1- We're over halfway to the next Patreon goal of +1 comic update per month! If you're enjoying the story, please consider supporting me on Patreon so I can justify spending more time on this dumb story.

2- The Tapas mirror is finally caught up! Or, will be once I throw the newest update there in a bit. It's right here if you'd rather read it that way. I'd super appreciate it if you share it (or this site/my tumblr/twitter) with someone who might like the story.

And thank you, as always, for your support whether it's on Patreon or in comments or wherever. It means a lot to me <3

Gosh these guys have had a rough day. This chapter ended up with a lot less plot and a lot more emotions than I originally expected, but I think I'm pretty okay with how it ended up. Next chapter is going to be fun, though (and I'm not being sarcastic about that- it's gonna have some legitimately fun stuff in it). Next week will most likely be filler (90% chance of it being more hug sketches) and then hopefully we'll start Chapter 4 the next weekend.

I feel like I have more to say but TBH I'm sick again somehow and I recently remembered I want to play Bioshock, so I'm gonna go do that.
February 19th, 2018
Thanks for the encouragement last update- I make this story because I feel like it's worth making, but knowing a bunch of people also love it dramatically helps motivation. Which I'm thankful for since editing this last chunk of the chapter has been a gigantic pain.

I feel like there's something else to add but I can't do words right now, so I guess I'm gonna go watch the Olympics. Because I love them and I think just the idea of the Olympics is amazing, not to mention how long it's been successfully running.
February 4th, 2018
Heeeeeyyyyyy guess who's finally no longer sick with a variety of things and has the energy to make comics again. It is so nice to feel (almost) normal again and get back to comic updates.

Anyways, early update today because I'm gonna go eat a lot of food and stare at a football game in a bit. How are ya'll doing? I feel like it's been ages since I've posted anything here.

@Random Reread: Thanks to this comment some part of me will always think of Effiom as a pretentious aesthetic blogger.

@Dragoonfliy: Just wanted to let you know that over a year later I still think of Lennis as Science Mom because of this comment.
