I guess I should also say this again, because readers here seem to be angry (Oh no I've betrayed you with this sudden change!) confused as all heck (is this the same comic??? What is going o-o-ooonnn?!) or silent (waiting to hurl righteous thunderbolts of Audience Judgement on this here humble comic): yes, this is the same comic. No I have not lost my mind. Yes, that is a construction site. Yes, those were indeed cars and not hallucinations in the previous page.
Here is a list of some of my favorite stories:
Wheel of Time, Robert Jordan
Dresden Files, Jim Butcher
Stargate, movie and series (Except SG:U which sucked hairy goat balls)
The Magician, Raymond Feist
Dragonriders, Anne McCaffery
I could go on. But you know what all these stories have in common? Journeys. To other worlds. What makes fantasy stories awesome to me is that tiny connection to our world, the real world; that fantasy has the potential to be reality. Well, here's my twist on it. This story has been written for years, and I'm not going to change it. So all you readers who aren't just going to give up on me after 7 years of making this comic, just hunker down and be patient. <3 And if you want to be critic, you can just read this first.
Also, again, if you want to know who this character is and a little more about HER, you can check out the cast page. Mild spoiler warning.
In other news, one week from today, I start med school classes. The next 10 months of my life are now scheduled. Every exam date is up on my calendar. I'm noting a disproportionate amount of school to vacation. Wow, undergrads, and even master's students are totally spoiled when it comes to breaks. But when I start to grumble, the following quote enters my mind:
"You want the end result but you don't want the hard work in-between."
This was spoken by an accomplished martial artist in China, specifically referencing lazy Western cultures. Those words echo in my head sometimes. People today are asked, "where do you envision yourself 10 years?" What they are not asked is to envision the time in-between. The next few years of my life are gonna be rough, but I know I've got it in me to succeed, and to do that in Kez-style, so I'm not worried. Just annoyed this is very much going to take a huge chunk out of my art-time. How pathetic is that?! Hahaha.
Catch ya next week, folks. Trying to work ahead to lessen chances of missed updates. More larger size pages await.
