WFB: Chapter 2

Chapter 2: Some People Take Forever in Character Creation The bed slides out excruciatingly slow and I bolt from it as soon as my head clears the scanner. “Ok, success!” The clerk gives an ‘ok’ gesture as he compiles the data on the scanner’s screen. “Great! Jun, let’s go back to the front and register your character. Mister, can we rent two VRMMO sets for 2 hours?” Hm? Why two sets? When I ask Masaki while we walk to the cubicles in the front he explains that in VRMMOs, since your consciousness goes into the game he can’t help me create a character without going into the game himself. Ok

WFB: Chapter 1

Chapter 1: Jun Imamiya, 16-Year-Old High School Boy The earliest memory of him I could remember was his broad back and the muscles that flexed underneath the thin jinbei. I was mesmerized by the sparks that flew every time he swung his hammer down. Even now I can’t forget the way the fire lit his face, the warm light casting cold shadows as dusk settled in. Even while Grandma scolded him to come in to dinner, he only had time for the bright steel that glinted in the limited light. When I was little I thought Grandfather was a wizard. ◇◇◇ Thwack “Hit!” I may have been close before, but only on the last arrow

I've just re-read one of my favorite webcomics in history, IoM, for like the fourth time, and realized I never even thought to ask you - why did you ever stop updating it? Is there a particular reason? I loved creative and well-researched plot arcs and especially the vast diversity of characters.
There were a lot of plot foibles that, while I was doing well to disguise how bad they were, i was getting to a point where I couldn't hide the bad plots. I haven't decided if I'm going to completely abandon it, but there's a lot of stories in there that weren't worth fixing.
EDIT: and also, time. there' was a lot of that missing too
That's a shame to hear, I too read IofM and loved it. Yes it was a bit hard to follow sometimes (mostly when I was exhausted but just had to keep reading lol) but I loved the story lines and would be delighted if you picked it back up sometime.  Seth's storyline is particularly interesting to me.
do you do requests, perchance?
hm... not really. My policy is that you can pitch me an idea, and I'll do it if I feel like it. No promises, but you can try ;)
