Hello everyone! Happy Easter :)

If you missed the April's Fool Day update, you can see it here :P

My dear pal and LP-er Myl has just started putting up our playthrough of It Takes Two together here, please feel free to watch if you're interested in watching me be bad at games XD

I hope everyone has a pleasant Easter~ thank you so much for reading SF >3<**)/ I'll aim to update in two weeks again!

Sorry guys, I've missed this update by an ile ^-^;;; it's going to take me a bit to work on it due to new settings I need to illustrate. I'll aim for this weekend!

Hey guys, it's with a fairly heavy heart that I am announcing a temporary hiatus until the end of May. I am struggling once again with the exact same issues that plagued me in 2019, and it's not a comfortable sense of déjà vu. I'm stuck between a motivational drain that pays my bills, or a freer and happier schedule that results in debt. I want to find some kind of compromise but I don't know what to do, and it's making me kinda sorta miserable >->;;; so I'm taking a break to try and sort myself out. Sorry guys to keep doing this! orz

Ho boy, where do I begin? Uhmmm, life threw a huge curveball at me, folks, and I'm now out of town after an extremely rushed set of arrangements. Not for fun, I assure you; with test results, quarantine measures, not-my-usual-computer at hand and all that comes with international travel in this day and age, this whole experience has so far been a big ol' pain. I'm not sure where to even begin but at any rate, the hiatus will see an extension into June - but this could be a good thing for SF in the long-run, because this curveball will solve a few issues that were hanging over my head in all uncertainty. That said, I'm still reluctant about work, and I'm still not 100% how I'll get things to work out in a decent compromise, but quarantine seems like a good time to get my head in the thinking game about all that.

So! Kindly accept my deepest apologies for the continued hiatus but please know that I'm always thinking about how to get back in the saddle properly. I'm still here! >.<*)9

Hope you have a Happy Easter as well, Rufi!

Mikey is sooo tired. :( Re: Alt text, I've been there, firing on only one or two brain cells. LOL

I swear Michael gets more and more exhausted with each panel, especially in that April Fools page :,D

A weapons cache... that dude they saved before wouldn't have happened to be... smuggling weapons, now, was he? Because oh man... weapons only make things worse in a conflict, this really isn't great news.

little edit: Just finished watching the two parts for you guys' playthrough and it was wonderfully hilarious XD <3 I love it!

So, it is about a weapons cache - not about Nemi helping that Danrir...

Very perceptive there, Lyn...

@alt text: poor Michael...

@R/N: Happpy holidays

...and happy birthday, Rufi 💗

(PS: I think the Party-page needs updating (Lyn is missing...)... - pressure just a reminder)

Are Nines and Fel in open conflict (ie: war), or is it a period of cease-fire, or is it a "Cold War" situation?

Someone get Mikey some strong caffeine here before things get truly underway!

Love how when reporter doggo asks if the gang has any news, Kylie is all in "negotiation mode".

"What do you got to trade?"

I kinda like this dude. I know he's probably just there to deliver some exposition and worldbuilding, but I find him pretty likeable and I kinda hope he sticks around for a while.

Huh. Comic Fury didn't notify me you had updated on the 1st. Cute comic.

The author's note about Mikey's braincell's sounded like me when I was have sleeping trouble recently.

Well, my Easter isn't until a month later, but to everyone celebrating: Happy Easter!

@alt text: Hoooooly carp on a stick, don't I know how that feels. Only I've been translating something massive instead of having a conversation, but still. Nearly missed the flippin' deadline because I couldn't continue through the fatigue. Turned out well in the end, but still.

Sooooooooooooo...why can't Cain just "heal" Mike? I mean, if he can revive an almost wouded-to-dead person, why can't he just revive an almost sleepy-to-dead Mike?

All caught up. <333
It's nice to read this again. :D :D

And so Kylie, and the rest of the party, learn the dark secrets of how to tame a Kijini.
Weapons cache: catnip, laser pointer, frisbee, and tennis balls.

@R/N2: *hugs Rufi*

Thank you for keeping us posted 💗
megados 22nd Apr 2021, 8:08 PM edit delete reply
It's fine as long as you, yourself, are well, Rufi!
A. Moose 5th May 2021, 1:02 AM edit delete reply
Better get with the sorting, rather than putting it off and paying extra for letting things heap up. You'll find something that pays the bills but doesn't drain you eventually.

And yes, I still say this is progress. You're still talking to us, you're watching out for yourself better than before.
mjkj 6th May 2021, 2:18 PM edit delete reply
@R/N3: *hugs Rufi* 💗

Please take care of yourself and especially your mental and physical health and do not force yourself too much - a burnt out Rufi is not a happy Rufi - and not desirable for you and us readers

...wishes you the best *many huggus* 💗

PS: if we can help somehow, please let us know...
megados 6th May 2021, 8:06 PM edit delete reply
Please know that we, here, are more concerned with your wellbeing, than rigid page schedules. You, yourself are much more important. Keep that in mind when you stress over not having a page ready. *hugs*

Please take your time, Rufi. Life can be hard and full of stress, and I'm glad you're taking time to find the balance.
Good luck to you, and stay well!
Crestlinger 14th May 2021, 12:21 PM edit delete reply
Just Keep Doodling. Comic will come when comic will come, but don't drain yourself to forgetting drawing, or the enjoyment you get from it.

Hi, Rufi
I'm sorry to hear things aren't lining up properly for you. Thanks for popping in and letting us know. If it means anything, it helps to know you're OK, even if you have less-than-ideal conditions at the moment. Thanks for that.

I want to say here, that you have nothing to apologize for. IN the mean time, stay safe! We'll be here.
mjkj 28th May 2021, 12:34 AM edit delete reply
@R/N4: great to see, that you are still here and seemingly well...

...yeah, travelling is challenging now - hope you stay healthy and survive the quarantine without being bored to death ;)

*many huggus* 💗

Sending well-wishes, many hugs (if wanted), and all the best vibes. Good luck with everything that's going on. And take care, Rufi!

(I..still need to reply to old comment replies, I think. I overthink what I want to say, get distracted, and end up never posting. ^^;; )
Eren 12th Jun 2021, 8:12 AM edit delete reply
Oh, and my comic is (FINALLY) updating again, if you didn't know and would like something to read. Only one page per week, but it's working for now.

And if it's any consolation, I think my four-year hiatus beats yours >.>
