Heya folks, happy Friday! :D I hope you all had a lovely Easter.

I'm sorry for the spot of silence; I honestly kept thinking I'd have the page done each passing day. -v-a Here it is a week later than I promised, and I apologise for that.

The long drag in updates is caused by my motivational tank getting sucked dry by work. It's a seasonal issue, as my workload gets heaviest around this time. I believe it will simmer down again in a week or two, but to be safe, I'm going to go ahead and go on a hiatus until 20th May. I need a couple of weeks to focus on work, and then I'll focus again on building buffer. It's not ideal, but it's realistic, so I'll do what I can to make sure I build some solid buffer. What happens after this point in the flashback will absolutely not benefit from any breaks mid-scene, so I'm going to do my darnedest to at least round the flashback out without any more stops.

In the meantime, thanks again for all your incredible patience. I'll see you all in late May!

Sorry folks, I'd like to extend the hiatus by another week, until 27th May. I need a little more time! Thanks so much for your patience >-<* <3

At first I thought they were playing a board game, but then realized they were planning how to get Styles out of there. XD

Poor Naru...doesn't want their friend to go.

You know, they probably do have an old board game or two hanging around somewhere in that den :D

<3 ;v;* Thank you Wit, that is very kind of you. I am trying to be better at keeping readership in the know with my breaks because I have historically been real bad at it OTL

Take your time. It's always worth the wait.

I guess the success of this covert escape plan is sort of a foregone conclusion, isn't it?

People tend to call me mel for short, but I'm not picky about it.

Whoohoo, update!

I was thinking last week that "tomorrow" wouldn't be attainable and so best just put it back a week. If you don't have a decent buffer, how about you announce you'll post the page next week every time you have finished to post? That way you'll always make at least that promise, and so don't need to apologise. Which you don't really need to anyway, but still. And who knows, maybe you'll have the next one ready by then, so you can announce another one.

How's the job, though? Less soul-sucking than the previous one?

That's definitely an idea A. Moose! It can be a struggle sometimes, so I may employ that tactic next time I'm under strain to update regularly. Thanks for the idea!

The job is less soul-sucking but still a bit soul-sucking, so I have to be careful about layering more jobs on top of it - which is what happened the last few weeks. Getting work is better than not getting work, but I sure wish I could get it all in moderation sometimes lol

Well, I meant it! Serpamia Flare is worth it! Take your time to rest.

I did take some time to rest, as advised - I hope the next few weeks go smoothly for it <3
