Sorry

Hello everybody!
Ahah, I know you're all probably a bit upset about how I keep going on long pauses like this (this comic has been running how many years and were still not out of chapter one??) And I usually just blow it off as school or some other shit like that but there's a little more to it than that and I feel like y'all should know a little bit.

First off, the comic page I'm working on now has been scrapped a few times. I just don't know how I'm going to transition into the next part. I have a few ideas I'm going to try still but that may take a while. I usually know where the comics going but I've been brushing it off as I just can't figure it out yet.

Second, I've had depression (among other things) ever since I was little, and its often not a problem at all but sometimes it can just come round and kick you right in the ass. I feel like you guys should know why I've been doing nothing. Recently things have been going to hell too, with school (Yes even though its overused I still have issues with school) Mostly because as an art major I've been taking so many art classes that I kind of got sick of drawing things that I felt was forced to draw for a good grade (having to follow rules with drawing something can be more draining than you think) and I also kind of failed my last math course so I'm taking a summer class to make up for that >n>. Math really isn't my strong suit and it honestly makes me hate life that I have to take it again cause I really thought it was over and I didn't need to take that course again.

Third, like I had said before, I am an art major (Illustration specifically) and am hopefully going to move forward someday to make my own graphic novel saga. I have already an idea for what I want to do and am working on creating that along side other drawing things I need to do. I'm still gonna finish this comic I can assure you, I love the story and characters too much to give up, I just need to sort out a plan on how to finish it. I would like to inform you as well that this is kind of an 'experimental' comic, as you may have noticed by the often changing style. I'm using this comic to find out what I like doing in the sense of design and art style, and I can assure you its going to change allot more through the comic. It may be subtle or it may be drastic but it won't effect the story line.

And lastly, Some of my friends have been having rough times and I'm that person that if someone cries I cry too and I'm just tired of having second hand pain from trying to help my friends in what seems like hopeless situations. Not that I don't want to help them, I'd help them through thick and thin but recently the situations have been going from "we can make it out of this" to "Well shit there's nothing we can try anymore" and it's really draining.

So hopefully I can figure out what to do with this page cause I really have been wanting to draw this comic but can't get into the flow cause there's nothing to draw yet. I'll be trying a few new ideas and get back to you when I'll be updating again. And with the help from a thousand burning suns, may I actually be able to finish a chapter within a decent time frame.

My Giratinas that's quite a lot.
Hope it all works out for you.
Meanwhile, I will wait patiently for your next page, whenever it might be!
And, if you are having plot issues, I have been known to be somewhat helpful on that level!

Through thick and thin. The Red RPers will stick with you Andreya. Hope it all works out.

I guess I'll give my two cents. To begin, I'm sorry you're going through tough times. School is always a slog, but adding to that your other problems, I can see why you haven't been able to work on the comic, but you already know my stance on academics. As for your friends, while I don't know them, I wish them, from the bottom of my heart, the best of luck as well. I know that times are difficult. Odds stacked highly against you, like a paper plain trying to fly through a tornado, but I believe you have the heart of a ferocious lion. You CAN surpass that tornado, even if you don't think you can.

Tl;Dr
I believe in you, and hope you and your friends can get through your hardships.

Thanks everyone, I'm glad you all are willing to be patient with the comic and I'm happy to have you all as fans of my comic. Without you guys there would be no reason for me to continue to work on this comic. The fan base of this comic has actually been what kept me interested in comics as I never would have thought otherwise that anyone would read anything I made.

As an update, I think I finally have the next few pages planned pretty well, I just need to draw them.
