Guess Who's Back... Back Again.... Why, hello there! Fancy seeing you in a place like this. It sure has been a while, hasn't it? What's it been, like, a whole year? We should really make a point of meeting more often....

So, a few things to address. First off is how incredibly sorry I am that this took so long. Things have been... well, a lot's happened since we last talked like this. I graduated college in June (yay!). I don't have a job anymore because I had a student-only position (boo!). I'm planning on moving out of my parents' house in September (yay!). My drawing tablet was effectively broken for a VERY long time and I bought a new one to replace it, only to learn that it wouldn't work for making this comic (boo!). But my dad fixed the old one, so everything's back to the way it should be and it's been performing better than ever (yay!).

As many excuses as I have, though, the truth is I just needed to move away from the comic for a while. Moreso than last time. So I set it aside and just accepted that it would be a very long time before I got back to work on it. And you know what? That's exactly what I needed. Because I'm having more fun working on this comic than I think I ever have. Both in terms of storytelling and improving my art, I'm having a ton of fun challenging myself and creating something that I can be proud of. And I know you guys are going to enjoy it. Or at least, I really hope so.

Second, in regards to the future, things are much more optimistic. At the time of writing this (in mid-July), I have enough pages to update well into September. This is a long chapter, guys. I meant to have it done before I started updating, but I realized three things. One: I did NOT want to go more than a year without updating. That's just cruel to y'all. Two: I know exactly where I'm going, and I have such a buffer that I can afford to race the clock a bit. Three: I've been averaging drawing a page a day for a couple weeks now, and I have no plans to slow down. So, I think we'll be good.

After that, the plan is to FINALLY stick to the original plan from like a year and a half ago: daily updates during chapters, with short (SHORT, MEASURED IN WEEKS AND NOT MONTHS) breaks between chapters. Not only do I WANT to get through this comic, I NEED to. I need to get through it, and prove that it's not just another of my many, MANY projects that I abandon halfway through. And I want to get through it before I'm married. That seems like a reasonable goal, right? I mean, I don't even have a girlfriend, so....

Finally, I'll also be working on the other pages around the site. With Gigi's help I've been doing maintenance on the characters page, and I plan on streamlining the FAQ and making it easier for questions to be asked and answered. I don't want to make any promises because one of the big reasons a lot of stuff in the past crashed and burned was because I was spreading myself too thin. That being said, I have some ideas for the other things as well, like the blog and extra images. And Hogwarts? Well, I always believe in second chances....

So, yeah. Thanks everyone for sticking around, and welcome to all new readers who found this comic during its very long hiatus! Please enjoy this chapter, which will be the longest chapter in the story by far.

Let's have some fun.

And this is an example of why i keep a list if the stories and comic i find over the internet, checking up on them every couple of months. The few people who keep making the stories I enjoy, and the even fewer who leave and come back. Glad to see this has been active for a while since I last gave a look. Probably in june. The longer they go without remarkable updated the rarer i check them. I may just have to re-read, the horror. To re-read a good story? It burns my soul(heavy sarcasm).
