All right, we're back on track.

I want to thank everyone who read and/or responded to my blog. It was a very trying time. This whole year for us personally has been even worse than last year. I have high hopes things are going to improve (I have no gauge, but I irrationally feel it will improve). I try not to babble too much about it, because we all got our woes and it's not really pertinent to the comic. But I figured if I was going to miss a week, I owed you all an explanation.

Next week starts another series of Web Shorts as I work on thumbnailing the next act. As mentioned above, the working title is "Back to the Present," but I'm not sure if I like that. I'm leaning towards re-titling it to "Time Warp," or something along those lines. I ended up rewriting and reworking quite a bit of the old script and created a new act from that (also, my scripts had much longer chapters than I do now).

The old script was from around 2010/2011 and wasn't very well written! But that's okay, because it's still guiding me in the direction we need to get the story. I've been cutting things that aren't necessary, adding things to help make more sense, stringing scenes together, and working on making sure each character has their own voice. You know, making sure the dialog isn't just a bunch of quips with everyone talking in the exact same voice, because smart asses XD

Oh boy, my writing was pretty damn awful (not that it's great now, but at least I can say I have improved a little bit).

Thank you all for your patience and understanding, and for sticking around! It really meant a lot to see so many people showing their support. You are truly awesome! I don't feel I show my appreciation very well, but seriously...you have all kept me going through all these years, and words can't accurately express what that means to me.

So thank you. Thank you so much!

Last week's video (for those interested) was trying physical screentones (similarly known as zipatone in the US).

This was actually a lot more fun than I thought it was going to be. It's very fiddley work, but, I mean, I like to work with my hands, so I found it enjoyable! If it wasn't more expensive (and I wasn't insane about my plastic use), I would maybe try to switch over. Buuuut....as it is, I think I need to work on my digital screentoning since I already have a computer XD But! It's good to have more than one tool in your box, in case things happen, right?



This week's video was slapped together last minute D: And the influence of Irish (and Celtic in general) mythological creatures and stories are a MAJOR part of Dark Horse...so I decided to make this a two part series. Next week will be Part Two and will focus less on St. Patrick's Day, the Irish, Irish Americans, and me, and much more on Dark Horse and Irish mythological influence.

Thanks! I needed that! Partly to understand what's going on with your comic, and partly to know that things are getting better with you two.

:) Thank you! I honestly do appreciate it. Today marks a full week at home with no issues, so we've been getting back to work, which shows to me he's getting better :3

I actually got to finished thumbnailing the next Act, too! So I can start working on it soon :D

They are not far from problems happening in 2000 (the year 2000 was always a good year to cause apocalypse or summon Satan it seems) but I guess 2004 is more important to them personally. I guess they cannot just prevent the events in 2000 by getting rid of the people right now.

Nerp :*( Even if they stopped the events of the plague, which I'm gonna say they couldn't, but even if they did, the earthquake that created the fissure revealing Kei's prison/castle would still happen. While the stressors making Kanna a target for Keisuma would be gone (no plague, family still alive, no war), Kei would still pose a problem and find someone else to possess and still bring down the veil.

Then we'd end up with Magic versus Technology o_O

That's an alternate universe I can play with if I ever finish this story and desperately need a franchise XD

(No. I won't have to worry about it, 'cause this will never take off, but I do not want to franchise. I am a firm believer in loving an original story for what it is, and moving on. I can't tell you how tired of Star Wars I am -_-)
