Some time ago I had decided to illustrate one of my all time favorite stories, "Back in Time" by Hal. It's still posted on my page at ararchive.com. Although my take on the story had some good elements, there was much I wasn't satisfied with. First off, the illustrations were not as good as they could have been. I was still learning the process. More importantly, the story deviated from the original in a way that I couldn't resolve. I had my reasons for the deviation at the time, which again go back to my shortcomings as an illustrator. I left the story as a part 1, and had no idea how to resolve this deviation in the storyline and remain true to Hal's great tale.

I had received some positive feedback from Hal, which surprised me in that I didn't know he still frequented these forums. I eventually decided to redo the illustrated story and stay as close as possible to what Hal had written. I showed him what I had come up with and he liked it, and even had me incorporate some elements of my first version. I finished several months ago. I haven't heard from Hal in quite a while, but when last we corresponded he seemed ok with it so...here it is. I would encourage you all to read the original, still posted in the ararchive:

I have really tried not to deviate from the story with few exceptions. I hope you like it:

When you say, "similar to this," do you mean comics where no actual change in age occurs, it all happens because of changing clothes and sort of mentally?

No actual change occurring more or less a case of mistaken identity gone extreme

Lots of my stories (practically all of them) have actual age regression in them.

Great job with great source material!  The source story by Hal is very re-readable but you did an amazing job bringing it to life.  The idea of a tiny 22 year old who, in the right clothes and hairstyle, can pass of for 12 is great.  I really like the perspectives used and how the reader can see how immature/small Kimmie looks versus Clarice and the others. 

But when you think about it, poor Kimmie!  She got three big spankings in one day!

Ha ha.  She was a bad girl.  Hal always wrote in this same vein.  He must have 5-10 really similar stories involving a petite young woman who dresses as a child and then gets treating like a kid.

Where are the other stories?  The only one I found on ARArchive for Hal was this one!

Coincidence?
A school near where I live is called St Mary's for short, it's actually called St Mary's and St Patrick's (Clarice's daughters school)
I think not!

Woah! I found some clues that led me to believe that earlier when I was reading it last night and then forgot them by the morning but I just posted this as a joke... just... woah!

Well, it was written by Hal.  Maybe he lives near you!

Hm.  Kim initially looks up to Clarice, evidently.  Not a bad angle to play up, on top of her being in human resources.  

Also, if Kim goes back to school , say, I would be nice if her teacher were a former boyfriend of hers.

It would!  I don't have any plans on writing a sequel.  Hal seemed interested in it for a while, but I haven't heard from him in a long time.

That was one incredible story. I loved the humiliation she was going through. Thank you for creating this unique and captivating story.

You're welcome!  I didn't actually write the story, that was Hal.  I basically used that story, illustrated it and edited it.

why not add more to it where she turns into a baby just like in recession

Well ...the answer is 2-fold.  It's a mental regression, so turning into a baby won't happen.  When I was working on this I did have some back and forth with Hal, and he clearly wanted to keep it mental.  Also, I've never continued another author's story so I don't know if I could do it justice.  The editing I do is really embellishment.  It doesn't significantly add to the plot, just fleshes out some of the parts that aren't stated.

Well why not just use the same models as a new short? Just do your own story using this model because recession was one of your best...and would like to see more like it also better with tgar.

I don't rule it out, but I have quite a bit on my plate right now.
