Presenting Poolside Chapter Four, my ongoing illustration of the great story of Mr. Louder.  I must say this has truly been a pleasure to work on.  I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed illustrating and editing it.

Some will surely notice the appearance of certain familiar characters, one of whom will incorporate very well in the final chapter as originally written.  There are 2 animations in the story!

No, she was a science teacher so she was approaching it scientifically.  The Mom didn't know she would forget Gretchen, but she wrote down her observations in case she did.  Like she said, the journal was the trigger to make her remember.  She does have a shitty side to her, however.  Glad you like it!  There's one more chapter coming.

When can we expect the conclusion to pool side. How much, if any, variation from the original?

I'm thinking about 1-2 weeks.  It follows the same basic theme as the original with a few twists.

Is there some way to see pages 61 and 64? For some reason the animation of page 128 works fine and I can see it in previews, but the other animations (I'm assuming) not only don't work, but are blank in the preview (if you are just looking at multiple pages the pages are displayed as solid black). Has anyone else had this problem?

Those are supposed to be black, not animations if you're talking about the Katie regression.  There are 2 animations:  Samantha regressing and Sara disguising herself.

Thanks- I was thinking I was going insane ^_^

Ha ha.  No.  The animations weren't going to look right in that scene, because the hairstyle was changing with each regression and that  is tough to do right.  It looked too choppy going from applying the oil to writing in the journal, so I broke it up with black screens.
