Hwlajlksdajo I'm so sorry for the lack of proper update schedule these days! -___-;; Here it is!

Words can't express my gratitude for your patience and understanding during this silly downtime my motivation is having. The next update, I'd like to give it a week because work has been revving up as well and it's been harder to find energy. >_<;

Thank you so much for reading! ;v;*)/

Blaaaah sorry for dropping into radio silence last week, that is totally my bad.

I've been re-evaluating how to end this chapter appropriately. A part of me wants to just finish it without rounding off some things, and then start the next chapter with the round-off instead, just so I can get to a break faster. Another more stubborn part of me wants to ensure I actually close off this chapter properly and wrap up the loose ends so that I start the next arc with a relatively cleaner slate.

The latter part of me is winning though because I feel like in the long-run, this is the better option. It does unfortunately require more time but it probably is for the best.

In the meantime though it also means I need to pull up more resources from my emotional reserve and crank out more material with what little steam I have left.

Sorry that I've been doing so poorly on the motivational front, guys. u_u But also, thank you so much for your support.

Hey everyone, I'm so sorry for the super long pause there. It's been hard to get past my motivational block, but I've finally come around to picking things back up again. I am, however, wary of updating only to splutter to a stop again, so I'm going to actually do as much as I can in advance to ensure that the rest of this chapter gets updated without any hiccups.

Thanks for your kindness and patience in this long unannounced hiatus! >_<;; I'll still come by to drop an update or two in between to let you guys know how it's going.

Please expect the next update on the 28th of May!

Nemi is really between a rock and a hard place :(

rufiangel, I've seen worse update schedules, for less of a reason! It's all good!

Aw... Nemi... T_T

Whatever happens, I'm willing to bet her friends will somehow end up involved in whether she wants them to or not.

Oh Nemi. Introduce them to your companions and let Mr. Cain mention that they met you when you were about to be eaten by a group of snake-women, and tell them what a great help you've been to the party.

Easy solution then, Eeerybody goes to her destination. I don't Think anyone had any other pressing concerns at this time that involved other locals. Maybe meeting up with Seia again so Kylie can show off the new family member, but that can wait until she finds out where he actually Is.

There actually is another pressing matter, Crestlinger. Kylie has been tasked to investigate the first Original Lapia Oaks by the Elder of Erimia...

The entire party agreed to the quest, except for Nemi.

And of course, there is also the pesky little matter of Cain's curse, and the fact that it will kill him if it's not dealt with sooner rather than later, but... besides that, nothing pressing at all!

Whew! Thanks DLKmusic. For a minute there, I thought it was gonna be stressful. >_<

*pap pap* Take the time you need to find the energy, I know it's gonna be tough on the motivation if work's also jumping in for attention >3< donchu worry

As for page... I am still unsure of Nemi's exact role for this meeting if she's from a rough part of Fel BUT has two escorts. But she doesn't look like she's gonna stay tonight at all so... hopefully she at least lets everyone know the situation? If she's allowed to? *crosses fingers*

(Edit re: A/N) Getting through blocks is hard. Hang in there! *continues to send motivational vibes*

Re A/N 2: I am glad to see that you're leaning toward listening to "the latter part of you". It is the more difficult, and time consuming, but seems it will give you the best result, and in the end, do the most for your self-motivation. That's a win-win! :D You got this!

Just a quick comment or two here. If you're on the fence about two things make a decision and then once you've made the decision follow it don't worry about the other thing after you've made the decision that's just stressing yourself unnecessarily.

Worrying about choices you have already made is the Habit you need to break. Anytime you catch yourself thinking about the choice that you didn't make, pause and ask yourself if anything critical To the decision has changed. Trust yourself and move on. Thrashing about just wastes energy that you could be using to get to your destination.

Megados is correct I follow other Comics as well that have a worse update schedule. That's not to say that I wouldn't like a better one however that's not something that I stress over and neither should you. We all have our moments. I don't know about where you are but the weather has been absolutely crap for the last several months and that's definitely affected my mood. Take some time if it's sunny and sit in the Sun.

@Rufiangel, ...

Hugs and support. Sounds like you are going through a rough patch right now. Just ask yourself, "What would Nemi do?" ^_^

Do NOT ask "What would Nemi do?" and while we're on the subject, Nemi, gimme back my wallet!

Take your time Rufi, we're behind you! Just_IDD gave some very sage advice a little farther up, and I concur wholeheartedly!

ps. Love the doodle Kylie! She's larger than life!!!!
