Chapter 1
Green Hill Zone hadn’t always been known for its peaceful weather, and lush vegetation. It hadn’t been known for its friendly inhabitants or the wondrous views out to the brilliant blue ocean. It hadn’t been known for much at all.
Not to say that none of these facts were true. Green Hill was indeed a peaceful place. But in this particular time, it suffered immensely from storms, floods, and all other kinds of natural disasters. None of the inhabitants really knew the cause. And they weren’t prepared for any of it, either. Hence, it was a dark year for the Zone, as many of these Mobians were swept away or even drowned by each flood that struck them, week after week.
Due to constant destruction, it seemed that the Green Hill Zone would be forever wiped off the map, and unable to recover. Nobody could really grasp how all this damage could be undone. Or why it had all happened. The civilians of the area had begun to manage their unfortunate state,

As some might have been able to tell, updating the commission prices has been delayed somewhat. We moved over the summer and things have just been nuts, so I haven't really been on DA much for the past half-year or so. I've currently got a lot on my plate so the update will be happening later, but commissions are CLOSED at the moment (among other things, I'm expecting a baby in just under two months, which is a huge monkey wrench). I'll be updating the commission prices sometime down the road, in addition to uploading a bunch of backlogged art. Hang on till then, and happy 2016!

Current Major Project: Going crazy
Commission Status: :bulletred: Closed while I continue to get things squared away from our semi-recent move and for our baby-on-the-way :bulletred:

It's been about a week since I sent you payment for the commissions and I haven't heard from you since then. Everything ok?
