so. a strange journey has reached it's...first big stop.

older readers among you knew this for a while but sunstone was , a long time ago conceptualized as a four arc story.
each arc named after the central couple's safeword

sunstone- ally and lisa

mercy- alan and anne

jasper- marion and james

and still unnamed for structural reasons fourth arc

when i say sunstone is over i don't mean that ally and lisa's story is over, just the sunstone arc. now, here is how things go from here on

anne and alan's storyarc mercy is next. this storyarc will provide us with it's own unique narrative. anne a bi girl who gets interested into this whole bdsm business through influence of her friends, and alan a dumbass 

through the course of mercy, we will in depth explore also the friendship alan and ally formed, their college years, the works

on the flipside we get to see anne and cassie become friends , expanding on the whole relationship with tom, and anne becoming a tattoo artist

another unique thing about their story arc comes from alan's involvement with harper and the opening and involvement with the crimson bdsm club. unlike ally, alan spends a lot of time interacting with other practitioners which will enable me to remove an aura of no true scotsman from the depiction of bdsm shown so far. 

truth is there are different approaches to it, we have seen our core group's idea of what it is, but it would be disingenuous to show only one side of the 20-sided die

as mercy progresses on it will catch up and move forward events of sunstone and subsequently jasper

as for ally and lisa... well, the fourth arc comes back to them as there is a wedding that i have...subtly hinted at XD

now, i plan on taking a month break from strips, there will be silly stuff posted here, a few illustrations, stuff like that but generally mercy will kick off early december

i promise you laughs, tears, and missed self imposed deadlines!

so, you as usual

in the meanwhile i'm off to wrap up reformatting of chapter 5 for print as that goes out in december....oddly fitting

i will wrap this up with a bit of a celebration of fan creativity :) feel free to link me stuff that i missed and i'll add them to this journal. (i'm trying to have one per deviantartist)

thank you everyone for these four amazing years, let's see what shennanigans we can pull off in the next four XD

ghhh I don't know if I can read the next 2 arcs T^T, I only read Lesbian Romance soooooo T^T I really wanna see more of Ally and Lisa
shiniez's avatar
then don't? there will be more of them but if you don't wanna read about other characters, just leave it as is :)
XadarxBlack's avatar
how to say this, is just that I can't read Straight Romance
also I had try, the plot was soo interesting that I had to take the leap of faith.....sadly I couldn't stomach the intimate moments and when it came to sex......*sigh*
shiniez's avatar
all good. you still got a story out of it :)

I recently finished Volume 5 of Sunstone this week and wow, I was so blown away by the emotions, detailed artwork, heartfelt/funny/witty dialogue, and the lovable characters! Also, I haven't felt so much WAFF (warm and fuzzy feelings) from a story of any medium in so long!

So happy to hear you'll bring back Ally and Lisa in the 4th arc :)

Thank you SO much for writing and creating this beautiful story!

Oh gosh, and I still haven't read through all of sunstone xD

I look away for five years, you've got your comic in print at comic shops in Austin (I bought one btw) and then the thing is over and I find out it's just part one of a larger story? I like it xD

I have a lot of catching up to do, but I'm super glad to see that you've grown to have so many supporters and such a big following :D

Basically my favourite artist of all time mentioned something I did. In one of his posts. 
Been having some struggles in my artistic path, but man, does this help.

Thank you Stjepan, for everything.

AS a late comer to the series(I found and lost the way to this series awhile back), I admit I inhaled the whole series overnight(Thank god for coffee!) And was sad to see it had finished what felt like 'already'

But this made me so happy to read, that this universe you've created will continue and we'll get to explore other's narratives <3 I'm excited to see how Mercy will bloom so thank you so much!

My girlfriend and I love reading Sunstone and it was one of the first things that got her into bdsm. We've been brought closer together over it and cannot wait for new material in a new story. Great work as always! One question, what is your name for the thing as a whole? All 4 parts together?

How about "Life Guide" because there is so much truth and wisdom in it :)
Soo many Spoiler..... Aaaargh can´t wait

Will Mercy be sold on amazon as well, like Sunstone has been? If so, I may very well wait until that happens to read. I want to keep supporting you... and growing a collection of your beautiful books. :)
Firebird-Glory's avatar
Are you going to post Mercy on this group/artist page?  Or a whole different one?
