Author Notes

22nd May 2021, 12:00 PM Kairo: That’s unhealthy

Evan: That’s just your opinion though

Also, I have an announcement/question. I recently updated the archive page to have chapter names instead of numbers so they feel more like episodes, and I included rough descriptions of the events of each chapter. I did this because I love reading episode synopsis when I'm researching a series, and this might be a good way for people to quickly recap the previous events, or (if you're like me) read ahead for a rough idea of what's to come. Of course, this also could mean potential spoilers for new readers and for future chapters if they look at the archive.

What do you think? there aren't much for major spoilers or anything so far since I don't consider any developments to be huge enough until chapter 5, so I may hold off on including summaries for future chapters until after they're released, but if people don't like this update, I can always remove it as well.

22nd May 2021, 12:40 PM Interesting how confident/talkative Evan appears in this scene. He's obviously nervous (maybe even terrified) but he "holds his own" pretty well.

The archive update is cool :D
It adds an extra touch making it look more organized, and it's a useful reminder of what happened when exactly.
22nd May 2021, 12:48 PM Yeah, I think you're right--Evan is probably always nervous, but he is also very sure of himself on a few things--one of those things being that he is NOT going to trust just anyone.

That's good feedback, thank you!
22nd May 2021, 1:51 PM I like the pacing of this page! The bit with Evan leaning back in his chair is a nice touch of personality.

I think your archive page looks fine. Since each description has several lines' worth of text, it's easy to tune it out if you don't want spoilers.
22nd May 2021, 2:22 PM Aw that makes me so happy!!

And thank you very much, that's good to hear (^^)
22nd May 2021, 5:00 PM I love to follow how your art style is progressing :D keep the good work!
22nd May 2021, 5:24 PM Hey there! Thank you so much <3
22nd May 2021, 6:41 PM So how old is Evan? I would guess early teens. He seems more mature and self-aware than most kids that age. He actually carried on an intelligent conversation, not just a "F off old man!".
22nd May 2021, 7:09 PM Evan is 14, and yeah, he is very intelligent and perceptive for his age I think. This is partially due to how he was raised and how his abilities grant him vast knowledge quickly, but also because he didn't have much of a childhood before he came to live with the Markus'.
The main area he's still immature in is I'd say dealing with trauma and grief.
22nd May 2021, 10:03 PM Seems like there could be people hunting Kat's dad.

Otherwise, I think having a synopsis would be fun to have for each chapter.
22nd May 2021, 11:20 PM Maybe, if they don't like the work that he's doing.

Thanks, me too!
22nd May 2021, 10:17 PM I like the mix of confidence in his not trusting people position and his nervousness, really unique little details for his personality. I like his leaning back pose too :)

I think the chapter + chapter summaries are great! Especially with webcomics it can be a good little refresher, like a synopsis for episodes of a tv show
22nd May 2021, 11:25 PM Thanks, it's gonna be great to delve a little deeper into Evan as a character!

And ohmigosh, that's exactly what I had in mind!! I love feeling like I'm working on a tv show 'cause that's my dream <3
22nd May 2021, 11:44 PM Wooh great minds :D. NICE SAME
23rd May 2021, 8:12 AM Cool! I hope our dreams come true! <3
26th May 2021, 6:57 AM Evan looks quite cheeky in that big panel imo...

I like chapter descriptions but I don't like when they tell the whole story. my archive has short blurbs, the kind of hook you'd find on a back cover to give people an idea of the premise.

but it's your site and I don't check archives very often, so do whatever you think is best. hope this helped!
26th May 2021, 10:12 AM Who knew Mr. Serious Evan could be so cheeky? XD

Hey thanks for the feedback, I appreciate your honesty. I'll probably leave it the way it is so people have that option if they like, unless more people dislike it or I feel differently about it later.
22nd Jun 2021, 3:34 AM Does your new archive update automatically whenever you post a new page? I'm quite interested in the format of it.
22nd Jun 2021, 7:22 AM Do you mean the new episode names/descriptions I added recently? Nah, those are there because I thought it’d be cool for people to get a quick recap or look ahead a little if they want. My archive is just normal as far as I know.
