I caught up! I've been furiously binge reading. I was up at 4 AM doing homework and had a sudden flash of memory about this comic from wayyyy back then- it just stuck with me so, so well. I mowed down DA and ta-da! Found! I have to say, I haven't been this happy in a while. The simple fact that you've continued for so long is an inspiration to me, not to mention the incredible and nuanced worldbuilding, the endearing and constantly-developing characters, the careful gray morality, and the stunning artwork. I'm sure you yourself have artists that shaped your childhood before you became a trained artist; that is you for me, and many many others. Someone to look up to! So thank you for sharing your work with us, and even more so- thank you for sharing your hardships with us.
Going through something similar it's very strengthening to know that others out there are, or have gone through it and are still succeeding and still delivering amazing work. Thank you, and welcome back!
