I can't imagine they're going to get incredibly far into the book, but I hope they can glean some amusement from it.

So that's it, the story of how these two initially met. For some reason I fucking *love* writing and drawing these types of scenes as flashbacks, so expect more "HOW DID THAY BACOME FRIENDS" scenes in future chapters. Not this one, though. This chapter stays strickli in 1918 from this point forward.

...Huh, up until this point the prom chapter was the longest one in the whole comic. The next update will push chapter 7 into that superlative. There's four more scenes in this chapter, and rounding up to 5 pages per scene (which isn't going to be the case but I'd rather overestimate the workload) leaves us with 20 pages or fewer until the end of the chapter. Um. Guys. I think I can finish chapter 7 in TYOOL 2019 *a tear forms and I swipe it away quickly*

By the end of the next scene, I'll have matched or outdone in 2019 the number of pages I made in 2016, 17, and 18 combined. It feels really good to be back to drawing and updating semi-regularly like this. I hope I can keep it up. I feel bad about the readers I've lost over the past few years because of how slowly I was updating, but I'm also a little bit grateful for the delay because I'm definitely a more decisive writer now and have really terrific plans for the cast that I think I was too uninspired to do a few years ago. Yeah my art sucks more than it did in 2014/15 but I think I'd rather be motivated and excited about my story while having shitty art than have good art I never feel like making.

By the time this post is up, I should be returning from my EXTREME FABULOUS TRIP ABROAD. Hopefully updates will resume within a few weeks, otherwise be mindful I may have died on the trip!! Thanks for reading!!!!!!!!!

The last panel made me crack up for too long! XD

And it's also so bittersweet. I love this kind of scenes too and I think something about them being flashbacks makes them even better than if they were chronological.

And heh, though all these years each of us had moments where we thought drawing wouldn't be possible but we're both still here. I'll take that with any pauses and derails. <3

I hope the trip was beyond fabulous and you saw all the cool places!!!1

@Oly-RRR: :D :D :D :D

I always felt that way too, like I know some folks argue that flashbacks are a crutch for lazy authors but I think sometimes scenes like this pack a better punch when you already know the characters a bit?? :/

*reaches over ocean for high five* yassss. The past week and a half with school starting up again have knocked me down temporarily but I'm hoping I get into a routine and can get back to the next scene !!! Fingers crossed for this year as I shouldn't need to do as much work outside of ... work as I was doing last year *wishy face*

@mitchellbravo: Yeah, we're a species that spends A LOT of time in the past, I think it makes sense that flashbacks are appealing to us. It's like getting to know someone when we couldn't be there yet.

And I feel you! I am being a parent to A DOG and I started to get back to my usual shape with Inktober but generally I'm all "waaait... how do people raise dogs with a full-time job??" XP Fingers crossed!!

@Oly-RRR: Exactly! I think it's fun to have kind of a reverse reveal in some sense...
