Hi!! Your Genyatta story is awesome! I love your design for Zen it's perfect for him. Though I do have a question, in the last panel of the comic you put up recently what does it say on the building?

Hello! 
Thank you so much! I’m glad it is to your liking!   ♡   ♡
OH! I should probably put a caption for it. The sign is supposed to say “Hotel”, the other sign that’s on the far right it’s “Welcome” :)

Pain is a part of life. Sometimes it’s a big part, and sometimes it isn’t, but either way, it’s a part of the big puzzle, the deep music, the great game. Pain does two things: It teaches you, tells you that you’re alive. Then it passes away and leaves you changed. It leaves you wiser, sometimes. Sometimes it leaves you stronger. Either way, pain leaves its mark, and everything important that will ever happen to you in life is going to involve it in one degree or another.

See, that’s the tragedy of the human condition. No one wants to be corrupted by power when they set out to get it. They have good, even noble reasons for doing whatever it is they do. They don’t want to misuse it, they don’t want to abuse it, and they don’t want to become vicious monsters. Good people, decent people, set out to take the high road, to pick up power without letting it change them or push them away from their ideals.


But it keeps happening anyway.


History is full of it. As a rule, people aren’t good at handling power. And the second you start to think you’re better at controlling your power than anyone else, you’ve already taken the first step.
