So I finished the thumbnails for Chapter 5 of my comic. That may not sound like much, but this is actually a first for me. For the previous chapters, I never had a complete script and never more than a few pages thumbnailed in advance. Also my thumbnails were tiny two-inch high doodle blobs with no dialogue. When drawing the actual pages I had a lot of delays where I would get stuck on a scene or piece of dialogue or a layout. Now for this chapter I drew each thumbnail the size of a half sheet of printer paper — big enough to write all the dialogue in. So this serves as the script as well. You can see a blurry photo on my my tumblr post, including the page that was partially eaten by my cat. :D

I had thought this was going to be an absolute monster of a chapter. There was a lot to fit in, and I wondered if I'd have to split it into two chapters to keep it from getting too ridiculously long. But after thumbnailing everything it came down to around 66 pages, more than 10 pages shorter than Chapter 3 (the longest chapter so far).

I have to say, I'm super excited for this chapter. My hope is that with the whole thing more or less laid out in advance I can be a bit more efficient when drawing the actual pages. My plan right now is to start updating before the end of February.

A lot of people have been commenting lately about the comic. I really appreciate it. I figured a status update was in order.

You have this scary-looking code in your website footer.

<script src="[link]"></script>

And it randomly redirects me to there, and to the google homepage, and it's odd. You should take a look at that.

I'm so glad you started updating again. I can hardly wait to jump into translation work again. I've been waiting so long.

Now that I use dA I'll remedy that lack of following now.
I am totally prepared for the upcoming chapter ~ !

I'm absolutely psyched! Great news!

Wow, so you weren't kidding when you said Tigger (?) tore up your thumbnails. O_o; but I'm glad they were saved. Can't wait to read the rest of the chapters. I'm not much of a webcomic reader- the only ones I look forward to aside from NRFTW are Gunnerkrig Court (even that I stopped years ago) and Directions of Destiny (which the artist stopped :( ). Glad to see this one has revived!

Right now, I think my favorite characters are Claire and Gareth. I'm hoping this installment gives them their happy ending, if that's what you have planned.

Hey, don't blame it on Tigger! It was Bella. She's basically a furry piranha. :D

I can't wait. I just love your webcomic to pieces and I've been dying to read what happens next. Great to hear that it'll be making a comeback soon!

NRFTW being updated again?! And by the end of the month?! Omigod I think I might pass out from the excitement!! :D I've long missed NRFTW!! <3

Will the forums be coming back to the site after you start updating again?
andrael's avatar
Yeah, sorry about the forums; I'm still puzzling out what to do about them. Hopefully I can fix them in a way that's less suceptible to spambots.
avland's avatar
What forums were you using? There's bound to be people around - like me for instance - who'd be up for helping out... =)
andrael's avatar
It's phpBB. The place was being bombarded with spambots to an unmanageable degree. Also, while updating the forum to the latest version, I may have ended up breaking the code. >_<

Coincidentally, I've spent all week working on a few PHP-based websites that one of my employers broke while upgrading stuff... seems like it always does make a mess.

I am very tempted to offer to help... but aah, I'm busy with school and work and my better judgment is telling me not to. =) Ah well. Let me know if you need any help. haha. I'll give you my email if you want.

Eee, 66 pages all scripted and thumbnailed? Awesome news! :squee:

It's great that you've taken the time to work out the entire chapter script in advance. That's sure to make the drawing a whole lot easier.

Man, I've been wanting to do something like that for years. I wonder if I should.

Cool! Maybe I should think about doing something like that. My current chapter (especially the stuff I haven't drawn yet) seems like a rambling maze of ramblingness to me and I am discouraged.
