A FEW DAYS LATER : ... OMG so many of you have been so incredibly generous. I am verklempt and pleased as punch and eying a lightboard for purchase and so very grateful and ... well, I just tried to hurry up and get you the next page, kay?
OK, so. I am tackling a long list of proactive, arse-shifting To Do things, and this was one of 'em.
After looking around a bit, Patreon felt like a daunting amount of *commitment* and I am currently about to be freaking-out busy and stressed trying to pitch a new BD project to a publisher after 2017 was a year of Things Falling Through, professionally - bah humbug.
But even though my GND page updates have slowed down something fierce I still get the loveliest, touching, just-only-a-tad guilting, messages from people who care about this 'verse, and first-time-reader comment-sprees and some who are looking for ways to show their appreciation and.... well, finally getting into the 21st century content creator mindset and all that - I've set up what seemed like the most hassle-free version of a digital tip jar in the form of a Ko-Fi page. Works with Paypal - you can "buy me a coffee" for a few bucks, as a one-off, no subscription or pledging or suchwhat.
Disclaimer and general British not-wanting-to-make-a-fuss and all..... I'm not in a financially sticky place.... there are far more needy and productive (fan)artists out there deserving of your paypal pennies. But eh. It has been 10 years of pages, and producing tiptoeing-around-copyrighted-characters merch on Society6 is a whole other affair, kinda. Let no-one here feel in any way guilted or tripped up or obligated (and hey, comments is always nice too ). And I make no promises of faster updates nor nuthin' neither!
(Really, I had more hopes to monetize GND readership on the day I finally get something published in English, but that seems a pretty fuzzy horizon rn.)
As a repeat of my anniversary post, thanks again, and always, to everyone who's ever commented, those who keep doing so, and all of you who have made telling this story this so much interactive fun.
So, insert Labyrinth-y pun about being generous and whatnot, and cheers all.
PS. BTW, that facebook group linked to last post - I've seen several other dA-familiar pieces there since, they are a nasty lot of print-selling art-yoinkers...
