Aaaand it’s back! Welcome back, y’all! If you’re a new reader, you can catch up starting here.

As you can see, chapter two is a bit more ambitious than chapter one. I’m excited to get into more world-building and lore, and introduce some new characters. I’m also going to tinker with the pacing a bit after the first couple of scenes (which were already drawn and laid out months ago) — originally, I was pretty cautious about how much dialogue I could fit into one page, but I’ve discovered I have more room than I reckoned on. I’d like to try covering a little bit more ground with each page in chapter two, if only because this is a gigantic story.

I’m going to try to stick to my six pages a month schedule, but I do want to warn you: I have a pretty gnarly episode coming down the pike at work in about a month or so, so I’ll do my best but that may wipe me out. Luckily, right now I have over a month worth of buffer built up, so hopefully I can keep moving forward and stay ahead of the game.

(Thanks again to Olga for your help with this scene! <3)

The next update will be Monday, March 27.
