AHHHHHHH!!! NEW CHAPTER AFTER ALL THIS TIME!!!
I'm really happy seeing that you haven't lost interest in the story. Cause as a huge fan of both Monsters Inc. and University, I can say with full confidence that LaS is some of your best work ever.
I actually like the filler chapters since we get to see some insight on a lot of the characters. Plus, they also provide a nice change of pace from the more darker and tearjerking chapters.
Seeing Dot get her own chapter was a little unexpected, but it was a cute and fun read. I like that you confirmed Dot's ethnicity to be Mexican (or 'Hexican' I should say). A nice nod to the fact that her design was inspired by Mina from Jelly Jamm.
All-in-all, I'm super excited to see more from this story :D
I see lol
Try to be careful when doing that, though. You're more likely to run into problems with the Uncanny Valley.
