(Dec 19 2020) In case anyone checks back here wondering "why the heck hasn't this thing updated in forever?" It's partly general real-life business (+buying a house! woot!) and also I'm stuck in another writing rut. I want to be in a good place having thumbnails drawn for the next chapter. I'm still bummed out with how Book 5 went and I don't want to make that mistake again, so I'm tinkering around to fix what I screwed up

But ARGH if I'm not getting a headache trying to force a scene to come out right when I'm just feeling low on inspiration! Sorry for the silence and inactivity :') These dry spells aren't new to me and used to happen with my old comic, too, and I'd work on side-projects then come back to my main comic months (or a year) later with new zeal. Hoping to get past this rut soon, cause my need to create is still aching.

Poor Tatsuma, can only see the negatives while Sikue tries to see the positives.

Her argument makes me think of kids worried about their Mom marrying a man they have to see as a Step-Dad that doesn't think highly of them.

I agree, there’s probably a few real-life situations that his could be seen as a metaphor for

Hey, I'm glad if it can resonate with different people in all kinds of different situations :)
(In response to both MST3KFan and ShaRose. I don't know if comicfury notifies both of you or just one)

Kilaun. There's something more to this guy. And I don't think it's good.

I wonder what he meant by 'his' secrets.

Well we do know of at least one secret she doesn't know about! :]

Alright then, caught up with the whole comic. Sneaking suspicion that Tatsuma's sneaking suspicions are going to be suspiciously grounded in reality. I also wonder whether she's named after the Tatsumaki bot. Pun intended?

I actually never heard of a Tatsumaki Bot until googling it. Believe it or not, I made up the name by sounding out syllables and it was years later that I found out that the name already existed (and was a boy name, lol) XD Thanks for reading, btw! We'll see about your sneaking suspicions!

Interesting thing is that the Tatsumaki bot is based on a female character from One Punch Man.

My main character (Cyril) would like to speak to Tatsuma regarding names now; writing on her behalf: "So your author accidentally gave you a boy's name while thinking it was something original and creative too?"

"You too!? Don't these people think before they pick our names?!"

Haha XD What a coincidence. An interesting factoid, though!

My female lead's boy name will have some in story significance in my story, but that's another conversation for the unforeseeable future. In the meantime, I just had a realization:
"Is this what the internet calls roleplay?"
Sikue's hypothetical logical response: What's roleplay?

Oi, well you're doing something with your character's male-name XD Haha

Sorry to hear about your writing rut, hopefully it passes by soon! Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year!

Thank you! I have a good feeling I'm on the latter end of the rut, but won't be too sure just yet! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, too!
