The Shadow Shard Page 46 by dSana The Shadow Shard Page 46 by dSana


Calm Before the storm.


A couple of days ago The Shadow Shard had its first anniversary. It's been a year! :D (Big Grin) 

Feel free to laugh, but I'd planned to finish this story in 3 months. It wasn't a completely ungrounded schedule - I managed to draw page a day of To Look After after all. But since June 2017 I have been at home for 2 months in total - the rest of the time I spent travelling whilst working freelance. I'm in the constant motion and views change outside the windows rapidly: Lapland's pine forests, Andalusian fortresses, Baltic marinas, Californian vineyards, Scottish lochs, rooftops of Kyoto's temples; but this story - and by proxy this community -  has been an important  constant in my life. I am pretty confident I will be able to wrap this up before 2018 ends, especially since I plan to take a longer break from travels in October.  Thank you so much for reading this far! 

As usual, sneak peek and this page have been released earlier on Patreon. Huge Heart  for your generous support:

Proves it's insecurity more than anything else that makes one vulnerable. Starlight might be flustered and afraid but she knows exactly what she is afraid of and understands her position.

Of ourse. When we feel insecure, everything looks like a threat and confirmation.

You're welcome!  And thank you for your diligence in telling this story alongside your freelancing.  With the fact that you're constantly on the move, this is a lot to ask of a person.  And yet you still pull through, and you still continue this grand tale.  If you want to finish it up before the year is over, go for it.  However, if it takes longer than 2018 because life and all that, then that's 100% okay by me.  I'm very grateful and appreciative of your hard work.  And take that break if you can; everyone needs a period of rest at some point :D.

Cheers!

46 pages and yet every time I open a new, blank page I feel it's too difficult and cannot be done and those past pages were somehow different. Human mind a strange, strange thing... Thank you for reading, for all your comments & support, Wanderer Hug

The human mind is beautiful but indeed a strange thing; it often expects the worst and undermines the best, even when the best has happened.  I've done my fair share of that ;).

You're more than welcome! *Hugs back*

Hmm. I wonder if that broken promise actually involves spike calling Twilight mother. And what not what Sombra is making spike think. Does anyone else get that feeling?

It's a promise she made once, when Spike opened the Door!
