I'm just an artist who wants to share the story that had consumed her mind for well over a decade with you lucky people on the internets.

I hope you enjoy.

Wooooooooooooooooooow, I did not intend for this at all.

I'll just keep it short. Since last October, things have gotten really crazy and emotional for me. I don't exactly want to go into the details of what happened, but for the beginning of the year I was not in a good place. I was going through a lot of emotional strain and some therapy was involved.
I can assure you it was nothing that terrible, but it still left me all jumbled up and made me question my views as an artist and a person.
So I had to take a haitus from comic making, for mostly mental health purposes.

But for the first time since then I'm feeling genuinely happy and confident about things! A major improvement from where I was in January.

Sadly, however, I cannot say when the next page will be. I certainly don't want to quit when I've come so close to finishing the first chapter. I do hope to get at least one page done before I start up school again in the fall.

HOWEVER, I will still be comicking. This might be pleasing to some of some of my fans, but on my deviant art account, I am participating in an OCT called "Vanish" that one of my friends is hosting.

The character I am entering is from the same universe as the comic, and she's actually quite an important figure. So while it's probably not entirely canon, a lot of things are relevant to the future of the story.
So view it as sort of a "prequel" to Guardians. ;)

GRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHBLUH

So sorry for the longgggggggg wait even though I said I'd post more frequently.

But after new-years I had some emotional issues I needed to take care of first, so I sort of took a hiatus until I was feeling 100% again :c

But I really felt it was something I needed to take care of cause I was in NO place to really draw anything.

But thank you for all of you guys for bearing with me! It's been a rough couple months for me and I still want to finish this comic, even though I REAAAAAAAAAAALLY wanna go back and fix some things with this chapter (and this page >_____> in my defense I wasn't feeling too well.)


But anyways, thanks so much for reading!
HEY GUYS!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL MY READERS!

Since you guys have been so supportive and so patient and putting up with all of my BS lately, I give you a little sneak-peak at the OTHER three, that's right, there are more of these crazy kids, main characters that will be introduced in chapters 3-5 to keep you guys interested while I get things in order.

Those of you who follow my deviantART account probably know who these three fellows are already, but we have seen these three before in the comic >_>

Kind of a rush job here since I was working on it the night of Christmas Eve, but I hope you guys enjoy!

And another gift to you guys, VINNY HAS A FORMSPRING ACCOUNT NOW: http://www.formspring.me/VincentHamasaki


Anyways, I hope you guys have a rockin' Holiday season and REGULAR UPDATES WILL RETURN SOON!
IF NOT, THAN YOU MAY PESTER ME AND PUT LOTS OF COAL IN MY STOCKING.

Thanks guys!
OKAY, BACK FOR REALZ!

Auuugh! sorry again! I've been busy with classes and projects for friends and a minor art block all delayed the comic!

And I've panned out the last few pages, and there's officially only FIVE PAGES LEFT of this chapter!

So, yay! And thanks for the concern guys C:
IHAVE RETUREND!!!

I am so, so so sososossoooooo sorry for not updating in so long!

Man....the last few months have been very...eventful....for a long time, my lack of updates were because of school, and then they were because of some very unfortunate events that left me pretty devestated... but now I'm back and I've got lots of time to work on comics!

Though once this chapter is done, I'm most likely gonna go back and re-vamp a lot of chapter one. In addition to a lot of changes in my life, there have recently been a lot of changes to the story so far. Things I thought were solid in the story now feel kinda flimsy and don't work the way I wanted. Plus, it's just plain PAINFUL looking back on some of the older pages and there are so many things I could have shortened and made more clear.
However, that does not mean I will stop making comics! I just need some time to sort out all the ideas in my head and make them better.
@ Pinguicula
You'd be scared too if your friend screamed in pain and was glittering like a float in the electrical parade!
XD
......

...interesting...
@MetalEgo
Haha, these aren't the fully completed pages.
I did these "sketchy pages" so I could finish chapter 1 before college started!

I plan on going back and coloring and shading and making them look all pretty soon!
FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!

SOMETHING INTERESTING IS HAPPENING!!!

TTATT
Impatient, aren't you Vinny?




Gahh, sorry for the delay on this page!

I accidentally earased the original comic file which I had to re-do and it put me behind and all sorts of unpleasantness...

But Updates should go back to their normalish schedule soon!
@ Lobrien
Lol, close!! They're in Central California as opposed to Northern, but the two areas are very similar!

I should know...I live in California

And on a side note, I think this was my favorite page to draw...mostly because I got to draw all those lovely hills and forests.
:)
Vinny sums things up...
