Hi again everyone.

Unfortunately I've had to make a really tough decision, and that decision is to stop this comic. I'm sorry to everyone for basically letting this "will she post a page?" debacle go on for the best part of a year, but this year has just been really hard.

This year has essentially been a year of mourning, something I've (luckily) never had to face until now. My Granddad passed away from Cancer at the end of August, and working on and thinking up this comic in the 2 months following that really helped me cope and not dwell on mourning 24/7. This year has just been full of firsts: first Christmas, first birthdays, first anniversaries without him. So all that has lead to my mood being lower and harder to deal with.

However this year has always sucked for me health wise, as every time I think something gets better, something will just ruin that. When I updated 2 weeks ago, I truly believed my health was improving and I would be able to start posting pages again, but after an appointment today that's unfortunately not likely any time soon. Don't worry! It's nothing extreme, but it's just a lot of stuff to go through, and a lot of information to take in.

So yeah. For now I am putting the comic on an indefinite hiatus. I am by no means drawing the curtain on this comic entirely. Just right now, I'm popping it in a box and keeping it in storage while I practice art, work on health, and just generally get shit done that needs to be done that will then allow me to give this comic my all.

Again, I'm so sorry for dragging this out. I really believed I could do it, I really wanted to do it. But I suppose now is just not the right time for me. 100+ fans, and 9.5k views in it's first year (almost) is more than I ever could've dreamed, and I genuinely can't thank you guys enough. I also can't expect you guys to wait for me forever, so if this is where we part ways, then I completely understand and I thank you for your support until now.

I hope I will see you guys soon, and I hope you will be well in the coming future. Thank you for everything.

You have provided us with lovely characters and an interesting world to mull over. More than that, you have done so often at your own expense. I adore your work but it makes me happy to know that you have made a firm decision in aid of your own health and happiness and prioritised them. I wish you well with whatever may come, whether we meet again or no. And if I see this story pop up on my notifications again one day then so much the better. Stay safe x
