Fun Fact...waaay back in 2005 when I first conceptualized all this stuff.... Higo was Hellgiah's original name! (of course I spelled it differently back then)
His life and development has probably changed the MOST since those first beginnings x"D

----

Anyway! Here's the thing guys.... I need to figure out what I'm gonna do with my life. I need to make more money to pay off my student debt and finally get ahead. So production on page might slow down here and there because as much as I love SoO..it takes a LOT of time and is uh..well.. not lucrative. In fact sometimes it probably COSTS me money :P. Aand all I mean by "slow down" is the update window might vary from Friday-Sunday. You'll still get SOMEthing every week, don't worry!

Haha anyway! I'm not saying this as a "hint hint, wink wink" to any of you! I DO plan to come up with some incentives for supporting the project because I do have some big goals, buuut I have nothing prepared. You might notice a little "tip jar" on the bottom of my site guarded by Hizruk.... if you ever wanted to throw a few cents in there I'd appreciate it, And if not I appreciate that too!

If you scroll down you might also notice some commission listings! If you want, you can check them out...I'd be happy to accept your business!

Okay obnoxious artist reach out post over. THANKS FOR READING! <3

*catches up with comic*

"Do whatever you must to survive..." I wonder just how far he will go if push comes to shove. Hmm..

I feel you on the comic "cost of production" at times. If you ever set up a Patreon I'd be more than happy to support. Do your best, Serps. o7 *salute*

Hehe that's a good question D! I guess we'll havta wait and seeeee
WB btw!!! And thank u for catching up!

I've had an unfinished Patreon for like 2+ years LOL. But I feel like it takes a lot of work and commitment to go into the incentives and I guess I need to research it again. I heard they went through some changes X'D.

Thanks for the WB, it's been slow goings on CF as suspected so I'm already kinda eh about it.

I honestly think a lot of people over think the Patreon thing. It's worth some planning yes, but I say give it a go and adjust accordingly when you see what kind of numbers you have.

that's good advice actually! Okay I'll look into it again. Commiss.io has a support function buuut it's nowhere near as big as patreon haha

---

Aw don't give up on CF! Just update regular and people will come back around! maybe do a once or twice a week update so people like me get a chance to see the page LOL XD.

Hellgiah: Try to keep yourself from making anymore reckless decisions.
Hizruk: I promise nothing.

And no worries if you need to slow things down - it's no bad thing to want to be in a good place financially :)

It's a real shame the number of comics that have disappeared because of the need to support oneself (I'm NOT saying SoO will disappear). Curse food and shelter!

The idea of Patreon is a good one. I think it would help quite a bit.

First things first. Yes, you have to be on stable ground, life-wise. No one will find fault with you. I enjoy your work, and I'm grateful for your sharing it, but you have to also do what's best best for you. Don't stress over updates, for starters; we'll still be here. Even if you have to delay pages, don't let that keep you from saying "Hi" once in a while!

Now to the fun part! First, it's intriguing: Higo is his name, so why does he also go by Hellgiah? (Yes I know,all in good time!) :D Now I'm wondering if I should call him Higo, or Hellgiah!

I do hope Hizruk does get a few answers at least when Hellgiah gets back. His expression begs for answers!

Thanks so much I appreciate your support always <3.

Haha that is a very good question! It seems he has not been called by his real name ever since Alaya. He's kind of embraced his identity as "the Monster, Hellgiah". Hehe so I guess it's up to you to decide! Higo the name is loving adoptive mother gave him, or Hellgiah the name the Council gave him :o (I'm really curious actually to see who will start calling him Higo now and who will keep calling him Hellgiah x"D. I guess it depends on how much people sympathize with him :3)

Very interesting information there. When I think about it, we don't know Higo very well yet, at least not as well as some of the others. The Council doesn't like him, so he automatically gets points for that! His attitude seems to come from being wronged by the Council, so it's understandable. Not sure what he has in store, I don't have any reason not to like him. :D

I guess you can see what I decided to call him! ;)

I'm wondering if I'm reading something into this that isn't there, but to me it looks like that last question struck an emotional nerve. Since when did Hizzy suddenly become so insightful (or was it just dumb luck)?

Regarding the update schedule and your RL situation, you already know how I feel about that, so I won't keep playin the same old broken record...
unless you really like the song...

Heh... you're right about that! The last person to ever call him that name is Alaya and no one has ever bothered to ask if he even had one before. He's just... "the Monster, Hellgiah" to everyone. LOL Hizruk isn't the most insightful buuuut probably knowing his own loving mother...even HE can figure out that "Hellgiah" isn't a name a loving mother gives her adopted son X"D.

Haha I do like that song, but I know I always have you in my corner, Don! <33

Man... I love moments like this. Those expressions in Hellgiah. That pause. You know what's going through his mind without anyone saying it. You are so dang good at storytelling, Serpy! And I love how Hellgiah is a guy you can totally understand and sympathize with too! He's not exactly "bad" but he's definitely not a "good guy" either! BEST CHARACTERS EVER!

Aw man this comment makes my day! I'm so glad that you see all these looks and moments for what they are <33. He's definitely not one of those Disney Villain "want to rule the world just because" types LOL tho his appearances probably give that vibe X"D

UUuffff he definitely struck something there.
But aw, he so cute and considerate to ask that :D

Don't worry about your update schedule! Do whatever you gotta do :)
(And aww smol Hirzuk looks so cute down there by the tip jar. I don't like hugs and he probably doesn't either but I wanna hug him xD)
Best of luck! I'll try to tip when I can :D
