You guys are so wonderful-- I was just going to re-update when the page was finished and delete the WIP... but my gosh your comments all touched my heart so much! I want to cherish them forever. Thank you for being so patient and understanding! It has been a REALLY rough patch for me.

Mom update: She'll most likely be coming home from the hospital today.. which I'm glad about. She's still in a lot of pain though


Guys, I'm sorry to once again be a disappointment to you all. I thought I could be finished last night but I couldn't make it..and I won't be home all day.

My mom is going to the hospital again today... Not to mention I'm supposed to work. I just don't know what to do.

The page will be finished and updated from this version tomorrow at some point. I didn't want to leave you empty handed TODAY though (I've been doing that too often). Look at it as a little glimpse behind the scenes? My hope is that the unfinished nature of this WIP doesn't take away from the seriousness of this scene. :(
Thanks again for your patience

It's been a while since we've last seen Merlock.
The first thing I thought when I saw him was 'Wow, is that a pregnant man?'

Oh geez!! D: I hope everything is OK! I'm sure they would be understanding at work if you couldn't make it, considering the circumstances! I know it's impossible to stay focused on work when something like that happens.. :((( I hope it's not serious and things get better soon! Sending the good vibes and well-wishes! (+_+))))))))))))))))

No worries about the update! This is really neat! I love seeing other people's processes, I feel privileged to see how the Serpy pages come to be! :D pleez don't worry about us, just take care! ♡

E: I still don't believe Merlock is Hizzy's real dad! There's no way. What a schmuck. If Merek runs fast enough, maybe he'll get there in time to invert Merlock's face. (ಥ_ಥ) yessss...that is what I want for Christmas. 〒▽〒is it too early to send a letter to the north pole? XP

Yess I'm blessed to have co-workers who are very understanding. It is SO hard to focus and try to put on a face for customers when this stuff is going on. But thank you so much for the well-wishes!!

I was so relieved the WIP was so well-received! I'm really glad to have it finished tho. I couldnt bring myself to get rid of all these comments so I just updated the file X'D

Lolol!! Shmuck XDD.. I don't know why I just find calling him that so hilarious. And its not too late!! *sends request to Santa with overnight shipping~*

Family is the most important thing. So don't worry about us or the comic right now. Your Mom comes first no matter what.

We'll be here.

It's still cool to see how the comic takes shape. I know I'm jealous of your work because what you show here is about as far as I get with my comic in terms of detail.

Thanks so much MST3K!! Family is reeeally important to me and its so nice to know that I have support that understands and backs me up!

And thank you so much! What you do with MS paint is absolutely amazing don't sell yourself short! I don't think I could make art look so nice with that program-- for truly <33

Take care of your mom, Serpy, that's priority 1!

I know this is a work in progress, but the sketched and uncolored background give this page a very dark surrealistic feel, which actually benefit what you are trying to convey here, in both cutscenes. Think about that before you finish it, because you may decide to leave it as stand alone. it still works very well!

Well.. not really T__T
She has MS and a pretty aggressive form of it. She is always suffering...and sometimes she suffers so much she has to be hospitalized. But I know she'll bounce back like she always does.
Thank you for your concern <3

Merlock is back at it. He's so funny to me (you know, to poke at and make fun of). His belly is so huge. :-D Poor Gwynnith, but she has some great jokes on him.

Please, do not worry about us! Take care of yourself and your family before anything. We'll be here. No one thinks of you as a 'disappointment'. This page is wonderful - even partially done it still looks great!!
Keep your head up.

Lololol ya know I never really designed Merlock to be a bad guy to be taken seriously (that's why he has such tight pants XDD). But he is indeed a jerk that causes a lot of misery

And thank you so much!! I felt so deeply encouraged by everyone this last week--that's why I just couldn't bare parting with all these lovely comments and I just updated the file. You guys are the best!

Hey Serpy, sounds like you're having it really rough :< *hugs super tight* it's totally okay, don't call yourself a disappointment or anything even close to that! I'm impressed you're still posting a WIP and working on the page despite what's going on. Please take your time and always remember, you are a lovely person and you are doing this webcomic for free for other people to enjoy, so take priority on your own mental and physical health and your family time and don't get fatigued, okay? ;3; *hugs again tighter*

It's okay, take the time you need to get back on your feet! Take care of those personal things, you're not disappointing anyone if you need a break after all the hard work you put in!

This page is a fascinating look into your page-making process! I actually didn't notice it wasn't complete right away, because I was so wrapped up in the story! But seriously, take a break if you need to!

It's true Merlock!!! Just go look over at her comic what she did to her very own main character >__>
She actually has probably maybe a little bit of love for HIM so I'd hate to think what will happen to you, Merlock O__O;;;
