Important News - Please Read!

Just in case you missed it in my latest comment, I have some news about the future of this comic.

I've been thinking about various things in the past little while, and about what direction I want to go in with my art and writing, and as a result of that I've decided to put this comic aside for a while. Updates will continue as normal for a little while, since I have several pages in my buffer, but after that, it's all up in the air. I've been doing this comic for four years now, and so while I feel bad about having to do this, for the past for years doing this comic has taken up all the time I have available to do art of any kind. I've stagnated quite a bit over that time, and it's taken away most of the joy of art for me. I've been less and less motivated, especially with how busy real life has gotten lately, and comics have become more of a chore for me than anything. I still adore this story and its characters, so I have no plan of abandoning it. I don't know how long it'll be before I come back, or in what format this story will be in at that time. I've been focusing more on my writing lately, so I may just decide to do it in novel format (to be honest -- as a writer, the pacing of doing comics has been extremely frustrating for me). A webcomic artist I follow switched to doing a kind of illustrated story format a while ago, which is something I might also be interested in. I really want to get back into doing digital art, experimenting with style and color, etc. -- in short, I just feel like I need the creative room to breath again.

Sorry to just suddenly dump this on all of you. I hope you understand! Thank you so much for all the kind support over the years. It's been a hell of a learning experience for me and I'm super grateful for that, and for everyone who's read and enjoyed this comic.
