and after that's all sorted out

chapter one complete!

WE DID IT! After 3.5 months and 33 non-stop pages our first chapter is finally complete. Will Frisk make it back home, or will Chara succeed in taking their soul? And what the heck is Asriel doing there?

Now that chapter one is nicely buttoned up, we are taking a short  breather to get ahead on pages and sort out some blog business. However, we aren’t going dark! To accommodate our prep time while keeping the blog active, Caretaker-AU will undergo a temporary schedule change.


Ah! Wow! Woah! Here’s the next month:

Next week (Feb 20-26): One week of quiet. No major updates!

The following 3 weeks (Feb 27 - Mar 17): Weekly updates on Mondays. That’s one page per week for the 3-page Interlude.

After that we will resume the usual 2 pages per week schedule.


Why the schedule change?

Quite a few reasons actually! While the blog will be quieter, us mods will still be frantically working behind the scenes to prep the next section. We’ll be using this month to…

Get ahead! Despite tons of unforeseen obstacles, we’ve managed to never miss an update day… barely. These interruptions ate up our backlog and lately we’ve been working up until the last second every week. In order to spare ourselves, we’ll be using this time to work ahead so we don’t suffer deadline fatigue.

Fix the blog! We have a new theme in the works that should be easier to navigate and hopefully work around the mobile app issues.

Open commissions! We’ll draw what you want for the right price! Since we will be working around the main comic schedule, commission slots will be limited to just a few a month. Keep an eye out for the announcement!

Secret stuff! We’ve got some other blog stuff we need to finish up, but you’ll find out about that later… it’s a surprise!

Finally sleep? Nah, probably not.

And of course, we will continue to answer asks and post fanwork as usual! :D


“Interlude?” What’s that?

In our grand plan, we are using the space between main chapters to share mini-chapters we are calling “Interludes.” These short one-shots will provide insight and backstory related to Caretaker, and are a part of the overarching story.

Will you do this every time?

According to our script, Chapter 01 is the longest chapter in the story. Because of this, we may not need to change the schedule at every chapter break. It will all depend on our workload! Interlude segments will always be between main chapter breaks.


tl;dr:
Interlude starts on February 27
Chapter 02 starts on March 20

Have an awesome day!

Gavin first meets Michael as he’s being thrown out of a bar after being caught pick-pocketing. Gavin made the rather stupid mistake of trying to take the wallet of a guy three times his size, with no backup, no weapon on him, and only his drunken impulses to guide his actions. The huge guy felt his sloppy hands, grabbed Gavin’s wrist, and threatened to beat him to death. Gavin would insist later that he was already making a plan to get out of it, already spinning the starts of lies in his head, the start of a flashy smile. But if he’s being honest he was scared. He was young, he’s been in this trash of a city for all of three months, and he has no way out of this.

“Hey!” A voice calls besides Gavin and he looks to find a short curly-haired man who couldn’t be much older than himself, freckles spattering his scowl. “The dude is like eighty pounds, leave him alone.”

The man gripping Gavin’s wrist turns to the other, his snarl getting deeper. “Fuck off, this is between me and the twink.”

The strange savior insists again he find someone his own size to pick on. The giant again tells him to fuck off. At some point a punch is thrown, the police are called, and Gavin and the stranger get shoved out the back entrance being told to never come back.

“Thanks for that,” Gavin chirps to the stranger, holding out his hand to shake. “I would’ve been ok, but thanks for the help anyway. The smegpot looked outright mean.”

Aw man, frikkin’ Digimon, man! This show was everything to me when I was a kid. With Digimon Tri coming out and all, me and my roomie decided to rewatch Digimon Adventure a while back and lemme tell ya, the first season really holds up even after all these year. Zero Two… not so much, and I’m not crazy about Tri so far either, but at least I’ll always have that first magical season which is just sort of perfect. *single happy tear*

P.S. This is available as an A3 print for only $8. Order here!

Got Your Back

this is for @autistictobio and autistic tobio, set after kageyama and hinata make up (but no spoilers or anything)
it’s 1.3k so if it’s well-received ill put it on ao3! i cried writing it so thats ur only warning

“I made a child cry the other day,” Tobio said, the soft words bubbling out of his mouth and rising from his position on the floor. He looked almost surprised to feel his lips form the words, as if he had never intended to let them slip out. As if a private thought, in the silence, had escaped and been vocalized without his will playing a part in the decision.

Hinata barely raised his own head from the rug to look at him. He was too sore and too tired to put the extra strain on his neck, and just let his head roll to meet him halfway. He felt like a rag doll.

“What’re you doin’ going around and making kids cry?” He waited for an answer, but Kageyama neglected to provide one, so he wiggled his toes and used his words to fill the empty space. The silence was still just a little too uncomfortable, even with the weight of practice on their muscles and the threat of homework on the table. “When did that happen?”

“When we were…y'know.” Fighting seemed like a dirty word, one that would upset the healing balance of their partnership. Even in the relative safety of their fingertips being centimeters away and the tension washed away like a ruined sandcastle on the shore, it still felt dangerous to call too much attention to it.

This is one of my many OCs! A harpy like creature based on a barn owl (cutest owl hands down). His name is Thulit (which I ironically enough got from a type of rock/mineral. Yep he’s a bird named after a rock. Brilliant). He is simply the softest of bird boys out there. 

oh yeah I was thinking about Big Sis AU and Ma Pines getting another grandbaby.  I don’t think that she’s told when the McGuckets get told.  Angie assumes that Stan told Ma Pines and Stan just sort of…forgets to tell his mom.  to be fair, Stan was busy getting chewed out by all of Angie’s older siblings for knocking up their unmarried baby sister.  he’s got a bit on his mind.

but I can’t decide when Ma Pines finds out; before or after Emily’s born.  bc on the one hand, Ma Pines showing up for Molly’s birthday, the month before Emily is born, and finding out that way.  but on the other hand, Ma Pines calling to check in on her son and granddaughter and there’s a baby crying in the background.  like.  both are good options.

He sees her again on the subway.

The space is crowded with busy people, all talking at once and not saying anything at all.

They are all inconsequential when he sees her.

Hogwarts would be hell for Raven especially her first year right after the sorting bc if she was sorted into Ravenclaw everyone would be like “haha your name is Raven and you’re in Ravenclaw? That’s ironic” “Thank you for being the 6th person to tell me that today alone THATS NOT EVEN THE CORRECT DEFINITION OF IRONY” but if she was sorted anywhere else the kids would be like “oh you’re in Gryffindor? I would’ve thought you’d be a RAVENclaw. Get it? Get it?” “YES I get it and I got it the first 57 times someone made that joke!” can y'all see 11 year old Raven Reyes punching out an unfortunate third year for making a bad pun bc I can
