and that's the end of chapter 8 lol

(pardon joseph's disappearing stripes i'll fix it eventually)

mitch talks forever time:

So this chapter started at the end of last February and I'm writing this comment April 18th, so I was able to do 46 pages in like 14 months which IMO is *really* not bad considering, you know, everything. i'm also glad this chapter didn't turn out to be 100 pages like i was originally expecting O-O

i have to say the timing is about as good as i could hope for because i really need a break from creative stuff right now, like a really good long break. I know i posted before about hoping to get a buffer going before the baby gets here but as i've also said before that just isn't going to happen lol, maybe if i had ended this chapter back in jan/feb like the original plan, but things just didn't go that way.

I usually have more to say at the end of a chapter but i'm so emotionally distanced from this work right now that I can't think of anything else to add.

I have legitimately *no* plan, like don't even want to try to estimate or give a general window, of when I'll pick up again. I can say for sure it won't be in the next few weeks lol. I think most of the people who read are subscribed on CF, which is the most surefire way to make sure you're notified when I update again, but i also occasinally tweet about updates and probably will do that when the next chapter starts. The script for ch 9 is mostly written except for a few arcs which are still on the vague side. I am looking forward to the events of chapter 9 yet also have no will or desire to make them come to life right now!!!!!!

Anyhow, huge thank yous to all of the folks who read and/or comment; even as shitty as I feel most of the time, it's really encouraging to get a comment or see that someone has read through a bunch of the archive or something, and I really appreciate you taking the time out of your day to read my story.

Great page and a nice way to wrap up for a hiatus.

(Darla is still getting far nicer treatment than she really deserves, IMHO)

Enjoy your break and we’ll be here when you return!

Well, that was a cute way to wrap this chapter up. Nothing like ringing in a new year to bring out the cheer in everyone.

As for future updates, I'll be waiting patiently. Whatever you do come up with, it'll be great.

*slow awkward clap turning to exuberant full house applause*

omg. wow... this comic..is a gem. Been binging this from start to finish the last few weeks.. this has officially become one of my all time favorite comics. Let me fangirl for a minute..UGH where do I begin?? XD The writing, the pacing, the setting/historical background/reference, the characters, the COMEDY. This story feels so well thought out, the characters all feel so real, like their own complete person with their own identities and paths, you have no idea where the story is going for each of them but you're glad to be there on that journey with them. And your comedic timing is GOWLD. I was laughing so hard at so many parts.. the play at the beginning, the haircut that killed a whole family, LEEE-ONNN...and especially..the camping trip *chef's kiss*

This story is really something special, i'm really glad i got to read it, and i'm super looking forward to seeing these guy's journeys continue whenever they do!
(๑˃ᴗ˂)ﻭ i tip my hat to you, MB! Superb stuff.

omg omg omg this comment gave me such a boost of inspiration ;o;

AAAAH I'm so flattered!!!! i'm so glad to hear you feel that way about the characters since that's like my one thing I like to think I can do kinda good so it means a lot that it comes across well to readers :o "the haircut that killed a whole family" HELP I LOVE THIS PHRASING LOL

waaah I'm so glad to have you along for the journey and seriously thanks so much for leaving this comment, I've been intending for days to get back to the drawing board even just to do some doodles (like for your thread) and it just never seems to coalesce in between all the baby-taking-care-of stuff but thanks to you today I did and it feels not so insurmountable anymore THANK U FOR HELPING ME BREAK THE POSTPARTUM SEAL
