After this weekend, I realized that part of what's antagonizing my depression is that I'm just running low on active juice and need some reactive time.
So I'm planning on taking a hiatus in December from both comics.
Tempted to take the whole month off but that's this week and I want to give more notice & December is like 5 weeks... which feels excessive.. o_O
Thinking ~2 weeks, the 12th being last update day and come back on the 1st of January. That way I can get through this Christmas season without feeling so overwhelmed.
(Still waiting on an update from my Great Aunt. We're just getting radio silence atm. I feel like no one knows what's going on.)
But yeh,. I feel like people are going to be like again? but I really need a break.
Eloise is a pretty good cook b/c she's had to care for her step family. So since it's regency times..
Drink: Tea primarily, but Eloise looves hot chocolate- mainly because she wouldn't often get to treat herself.
Food: Eloise likes savory things with a light sweet underlining flavor. Foods like White Soup.
Fearnot lol he'd try anything you offer him to eat. He grew up eating mostly bread and vegetables because meat was more of an upper class food.
(Royals back in the day didn't eat enough veggies and often suffered from gout D:)
But since traveling, he still eats more veggies than meat but he gets really excited about trying new desserts. He acts like a judge on one of those baking shows whenever he tries something new. xD
Just takes a tiny bite then starts going into depth about all the varying flavors, then either complements the chef or tells them how disappointed he is.
Terrestrial I'm not gonna surprise anyone when I mention alcohol so moving on xD I just mainly envision her eating this bowl that looks vaguely like ramen but instead of noodles it's (alien) tenticals with bits of (alien) crustacean meat and (alien) eggs. And a big, fat, fungis thing that looks like it's breathing. Purple, yellow, and green are the colors I think I'd use if I were to draw it.
Solaris I'm not sure- although it does come up. Food for him as far as I've taken it is just "fuel" so he chooses the most nutritional- flavor be damned. I'm pretty sure he only drinks water.
Miss Saigon w/ Lea Salonga & Will Chase (warning it is very sad and has lots of feelings)
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang - more lighthearted and fun
Thoroughly Modern Millie - Overall I like both the movie production w/ Julie Andrews & the Broadway production!
(Broadway was made more recently so they've edited/replaced the songs to be more with our times- so part of why I like Julie Andrews' version is that it's probably a bit more historically accurate)
& more but I don't want to overload you- I didn't even get into animated movies b/c probably most of them. xD... or even the muppet movies b/c like damn there's Muppet Treasure Island and Muppet Christmas Carol.. and I really loved the soundtrack for Muppets most wanted. (Together again, again makes my heart so happy xD)
^I'm told (as I do not live near the coast and I barely eat seafood) that fresh fish smell like the ocean. Soooooooooo since your fishy dudes are still alive... they'd smell like the ocean? :D?
(Aka they smell like salt and rock soup)
Giselle since it's already mentioned in the comic, smells of irises :)
Eloise would have kind of a sharp scent. A bit of soot but also of tea-leaves and flowers(roses most potently). (Apparently she would have used tea-leaves to help with the cleaning every day o_O)
Fearnot, I imagine, would smell of grass and sunshine
Terrestrial would smell kinda like that coat you've had for years but didn't wash that often. Bit of booze, something close enough to cigarette smoke.. thinking kind of like dead leaves in fall for some reason?
Solaris smells brand spanking new and kind of chemically(?). Like clothes straight from the store and maybe a lil potent cologne.
Zsavae faint frog smell and spices similar to orange/cinnamon. Occasionally metallic from the blood of her victims *lightening flashes*
Thanks- I'm feeling better today so whatever chemical potion my brain was concocting these past couple weeks is running dry- or at least I hope so. The right half of my face still hurts xD
I need to get a buffer for Spindleweb and finish editing the pages for Terrestrial so I can take a hiatus without disrupting people's experience.
Probably should let up on my commitment to these projects just a little but damn it's hard.
I've only just rebuilt Spindleweb's audience and Terrestrial is still in the "first impression" stage so I'm really anxious about giving it its best foot forward.
So I'm gonna see about redrawing one panel for Terrestrial b/c it's a lil poorly drawn and feels out of place tone-wise today and then
probably just play some video games coz I haven't turned on my ps4 since last summer o_O
24hourssleeping:Where does your site direct to, the first page of your comic, or the latest page?
I'm a little torn between the choices. For the latest page, it would theoretically be showing your best art first; however, I'm worried about spoiling plot points later in my comic so I link to the first page.
Which do you do and why?
My personal preference is first page first, however I have been convinced to do the opposite. Thanks, Lirvilas. :P
It's not just about showing your current abilities, it's also being mindful about creating a positive experience for returning viewers.

Been trying to get an update on my Great Aunt but it's been radio silent. Making me nervous.
Also my family's Thanksgiving got rescheduled to the same day & time as my friendsgiving and it's awful. Its my nephew's first Thanksgiving so I wanna be there but also my friend has been in and out of surgery and hasn't been her normal self so I was hoping on helping make the day good for her.
I feel sick to my stomach idk what to do. The two dinners are like an hour apart so it's not like I can easily drop by.
