It is with great sadness that I must announce the end of Chasing the Sunset.
Chasing the Sunset was always something Alien and I did together and ... a few months ago Alien decided to break off our relationship of 15 years. I am not going to go into the reasons other than to say I understand them and that it isn't about me being trans.
I'm sorry for not letting you all sooner ... it's been an incredibly hard time for me as I'm sure you can imagine.
I'm sorry I, was rather short in my message because of the pain in me, so I forgot to say something:
I want to thank every single one of you who have read us througout the years, and especially everybody who has commented or otherwise interacted with us. It is you who have made this project one of the very few things in my life that I'm proud of.
Thank you so much everybody, and I'm so very sorry it is ending like this.
Like the past two years, Alien and I have made a little story for our kid's upcoming birthday. We print these out and hand them out to his classmates in lieu of the traditional candy.
Last year's could not be translated due to bad dutch puns, but I have managed to translate this year's. It's not my best work since I started work on it too late (and thus Alien did not get time to illustrate all of it), but I hope you enjoy this little interlude while waiting for comic to resume.
If you want more info about comic update and who this samantha person is who is signing this message, red the news item below this one.
It's been I don't know how long since I've said anything here and longer yet since an update. I think you deserve to know what's up.
For the past few years I've been suffering from (and getting treatment for) very severe depression.
This makes it hard to make comic: Leaf, Ayne, Feiht and Myhrad are all different parts of me, but the pixie has lost its magic, Ayne has seen too many friends suffer without being able to help, too many of Leaf's crazy plans have gone awry and Myhrad is very afraid.
Speaking of Myhrad, who does not know whether they are a boy or a girl dragon, I have personally started a journey that will one day end with me being "Samantha" (though I already am and have always been).
Chasing the Sunset is not dead, even though it may seem like it. It won't die until it's either finished, or I am. It's just ... really really hard to work on until I get better.
Excerpt from "The bestiary of The World That Is" by Wizard Ehm-Al.
When I created my lists of creatures to study, it was with some hesitation that I added Faerie Dragons, and who could blame me: if the stories were true, they were a cross between faeries and dragons (with all the obvious implications) and if they weren't, it would be a wild jabberwock chase. Personally, I believed the whole species a fabrication of somebody who misspelled “fiery dragon” and didn't think I'd ever encounter one.
Much could be said on the subject of the Hell's Pixies, although in truth if one removed all the curses the written material would be considerably shorter.
Note, please, that by curses I mean not merely vulgar language: so many malignant spells have been levelled at this group that should all of them have found their mark, the results would be, shall we say, unpleasant? Of course almost none of these curses worked, or at least worked for very long. The clue is in the name, after all: we are dealing with pixies.
