@JovanW- Either send me a private message on Smackjeeves, or contact me on Discord - my handle is on my Smackjeeves profile. Or message me on the Middle Ground, that works too!

Before I do anything else- Here's Q&A Special #4! Hope you enjoy it.

Now that that's out of the way...

Holy Heck you guys, it's been a year. The WSE, Christmas Wish pages, and the fact that I've basically been working nonstop for the past year and a half took a lot out of me. I need to take some time to myself to recover and recharge, so that I can be back at full and making pages for all of you again sooner rather than later!

But then, why the 3/11/19 projected return date? That's actually pretty simple- I'm expecting company from out of town from mid-January to mid-February. I don't wanna start posting pages before that only to have to stop due to running out of buffer, and I don't know how much time I'm going to need to recharge after the fact. The second Monday of March seems like a good estimate for a time I'd be able to return, because it gives me both time to recover after the nonstop work marathon that has been my life lately and grants enough leeway for me to make some comics to build up a buffer again. And if I build up my buffer enough between now and then, I may even be able to start updating again sooner than I expected! I make no promises though, because Holy Heck do I need a gosh darn break.

I'll be posting the Christmas Wish pages on the Middle Ground come December 13th, so keep an eye on the site at around that time to follow along with the festivities! I think you guys will enjoy what I have in store for that. I'll be around and about if you need anything or have any questions for me; otherwise, see you when I get back!

The 4th and final Q&A Special for Aware! ( http://www.smackjeeves.com/comicprofile.php?id=132405 )

Here's the post referenced in Niv's last question.

And now I will sleep for 44 years.

HOPE YOU ENJOYED IT

@HarrisonButterGem- I'd say "someone draw that" but, it is me, I am the artist-
@JustCam- See you later alligator!

@JovanW- Only the very best of luck.
@RoninHunt0987- Well, she'd have to share her findings, right?

=END OF WORLD [19]=

This World took a surprisingly long time to get through. Partly because the World itself lasted for so long, but also partly because of what it meant for the series.

World [19] serves as a pretty effective warning - the cost of failure, and the price to pay if a solid effort is not put forwards. But it also serves as something a little more positive; that is, helping RP!Két get some closure and giving her a chance to get her feelings out into the air.

RP!Két is... complicated, to say the least. Her motivations as a character are difficult to grasp, because of just how many layers there are to her behavior at any given time. And it gets even more complicated when you take into account the meta layers of her motivations; that is, the inherent Fourth Wall elements behind them. Trying to figure out how to phrase them in a way that's both coherent for someone not in her situation, and also consistent with her character, is... difficult. Especially as someone who tends towards feeling what a character would do and say in a situation- sometimes it's hard to put those 'feelings' into 'words' that make sense without all of the information behind those feelings.

Things like this, I struggle with them because there's not much that I can compare it to. Everyone says "write what you know", because by drawing on things you've done and/or experienced leads to being able to write more convincing and believable things. But I'm not exactly religious, nor have I got any knowledge of any beings that brought me to life and control my actions, nor have I got any context on wondering if they're actually controlling me or just letting those feelings that dictate what someone would do take over and write my story that way. Writing RP!Két's grievances with her own story and her own plot is a difficult hurdle, because there's not really much I can work with from my own experiences- so in the end, I hope I was at least somewhat successful in granting some insight into why she is how she is, and why she wants what she wants.

As far as what's next... well... I have an announcement to make come Monday, and after that? It just depends how the future goes.
Have you ever just spontaneously realized you need to make art for 23 different characters

because that happened to me at the start of the week

<s>technically it's 24 if you count Gail and Gale as separate entities</s>

@Capejedi- I mean. Fair.
@JovanW- That meanie buttface!
@WiispNightmare- Yeah but the game can get pretty stressful...

@WiispNightmare- I mean, I think the 'breaking blocks' thing is stress-relieving, but as it gets harder it's... not exactly... stress-relieving.
@RoninHunt0987- Back to the ol' grindstone.
@JustCam- About time, am I right?

@WiispNightmare- Do that thing in which, you do a relaxing activity, to calm down, Tetris might not be relaxing though
@Capejedi- .....let's not
@Bringer_of_light- Is that incest, masturbation, or just narcissism?

It's important to be able to process things that happened to you. That can help you bring about a sense of closure in regards to them - and as has been established, Két does a lot better with handling things when she has a sense of closure about events she's been through.
@Hero of Comedy- The best kind of shadowing.
@TheJGamer- I mean, maybe?
@HarrisonButterGem- Sounds like a reasonable amount of time for her to be away for.
@1337F0X- [stares at the area covered in clouds] Seems spooky.
What even would a beach planet be? Like, there's surely got to be some classification for 'Beach' that would make a planet of beach no longer a beach. Why call it a Beach Planet? Can't we just go with Resort Planet, that makes more sense-
@RoninHunt0987- ;3
@JustCam- Indeed.
@WiispNightmare- Welcome To Heck
