this segment was meant to be the end of chapter 4. i feel like i should direct you back to this page right now...

i've actually had this page mostly done since january. i thought about redoing it, but i already spent so long tripping over 5.05, i'm just going to post it and be done so i can move on with the story.

another page! tentatively hoping that i can keep this up again, although this page did take me a good few days...mostly because i didn't leave myself enough space to do what i wanted in the bottom left panel >m< it'll do.

thank you for all your lovely comments last week everyone! you're all so patient with me (◡‿◡✿) i hope you'll be patient with this scene too, it's one of those that really needs to be read all in one go i'm afraid..

QUICK! take this page before i get swallowed by insecurity again!

no but really, hello again everyone. thank you so much everyone who's been sticking by hemlock waiting for a new page. i'm really sorry it's been so long, my brain has been in a difficult place for the last few months. i'm not sure what's up with me, but it's super irritating.

i can't promise that there will be pages every week or regular updates just yet, this could be a fluke, but please know that when there -is- a new page, it will go up. i'm not giving up on this webcomic! \(>m<)/

also, if you want updates about the status of things, the best place to look is my tumblr and twitter, not here - i'm mildtarantula on both those sites too.

thank you for all the lovely comments last week, you guys are all so nice *uvu*

@EmilyS: it was actually meant to be decoration on his boot rather than an anklet, but i guess it's sort of neat that it turned out looking like that! ^^

i'm sorry to have kept you all waiting for so long >m< thank you for being so patient! a lot happened since may - i finished my job at the v&a, i drew comics for regular show and adventure time, i split up with my boyfriend of two years, i'm considering doing a masters degree...but now that i've got these two pages up, i'm gonna try hard not to let it slip away from me again.
