3rd Interlude, page 1

February 10th, 2009

I didn’t realize that I had said Saturday (the 7th) would be the new page. For some reason I thought the 7th was a Sunday. At any rate, I didn’t manage to finish the page by Sunday either. But here it is now!

Way back at the start of the comic, I promised no blatant pop culture references. I broke that in the very first chapter with Perrault’s “these boots are made for walking” line. Now I’m breaking it again with the title of this Interlude, a line which has been a source of soul-searing anguish and frustration for so many children from my generation. I’ve been looking forward to doing this Interlude for a while; hope you enjoy it.

I still have a bunch of emails to answer; thank you for being patient! And if anyone is interested, I do actually have a Twitter; I’ve decided to start posting updates there as well.

And with that rather anticlimactic ending, I need to take a breather. Apart from needing to regroup before beginning a new chapter, things have been incredibly hectic with last-minute preparations for my brother getting married on Saturday. So on February 7, we start the third Interlude. I think you will enjoy it! Unless of course you don’t. I’ll do a site update between then and now, probably on the 31st.

EDIT: Um, February 9. 3rd Interlude starts on February 9.

Last page of Chapter 4 will be up tomorrow.  I’m really sorry.  It’s been an absolutely crazy week.

This scene is blatantly inspired by my cat Shawn. When you hold the door open for him, he will walk up to it very intently, then stop just a few steps short, suddenly remembering how extremely urgent it is that he sit down and groom himself right that very second. I tell him that I wasn’t put on this earth to stand around being doorman to a cat, but he seems to disagree.

This new year isn’t holding back so far. Shaded page will be up tomorrow! Finished! Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates it! To everyone else, Happy Holidays and have a nice day. :) Where I am, it’s actually 4 in the morning of the 26th, and a few hours from now I will be leaving forthe airport, to return on the 30th. So obviously I will have to miss an update. The next update will be on January 4, Sunday.

I’m sorry I don’t have a present or a holiday-themed picture for you this year. But you should definitely check out this excellent little music video, made by Kaol N. who runs the Japanese translation.

The gray shaded version will be up tomorrow. (Finished!) There are three more pages in this chapter, but unfortunately what with Christmas and going out of town from the 26th to the 30th, I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to finish the chapter before the year ends. :/

Toast is delicious, isn’t it?

Next update will be Sunday again.

Ack. Okay, the next page will be up on Tuesday night. Don’t think of it as “slow”, think of it as “dramatic tension”!

You might have noticed that the door is a rather modern-looking one. This doesn’t have any particular significance except that I decided to do it that way to make it look more obviously out of place.

Sorry for the slow going. It should be apparent by now why I had originally wanted to to have this entire scene ready before updating. Next week, I hope to have two pages.
