First, I want to personally thank everyone who reached out to me during my absence, and I would like to apologize for not responding. I'm honestly moved by the messages and support. I wanted to return when I had something to show for it, and I've released a new full one-off story, Cindy.
It's a 30 page monolith (had to use PDF file for it). I also went ahead and had a modest cover prepared for it.
I originally intended to create Holiday Cheer Epilogue, but as I started Cindy's scenario, I was drawn to fully fleshing out this story. Even if you haven't read any meta high, or holiday cheer stories, please give this story a read - it's meant to function as a standalone.

I also created a 'supporter's edition'. It's nothing much - just the story in PDF (which you can already download), docx, epub, and mobi. There's also some very rough/cut content and notes on creative process
