/Hello to everyone old and new ♥/
Just wanted to say a few important things, since been a real while I uploaded anything. There’s been lotsa’going on, I’ve been working on Echotale stuff, though. Unfortunately, none of the pages I made (and those were over 50 pages of sketch and lineart) are something I can upload (for now…and some even ever, possibly?). Part of them them needs revision, others have bad timing or reveal information that I can’t make public yet, rest has been torturing my braincells for a while… I’ve been quite stuck with the story - not because of losing track of it (I had already planned it out till the end), but other, more personal things that I can hardly talk about openly. I enjoy writing the story really much and I have NEVER (I repeat..NEVER) had this kind of attention from so SO many people in my life. Even outside country! Reaching hearts of people as far as Asian continent has been something I dreamed about for a long time…now it happened…and I am a bit clumsy at how to handle it @///@;; I’m an introvert that likes to please people, I have lots of surpressed feelings and I’d be at my happiest if I could just make people happy with the little that I can give to the world. For this reason, I have gotten a bit tangled up with how I want to approach and end the story. DON’T GET ME WRONG, IT’S FAR FROM ENDING - it’s the opposite!! I still have so so many things I Want to tell/show. You all have seen just how close Frisk gets to G, but the most fun part of them growing from awkward friends/strangers to closely bonded people still hasn’t been shown, I’m very eager to work on it! ♥ But these upcomming pages are so crucial to how the ending plays out and I’ve had very little confidence whatsover about it all, that I couldn’t move on. I talked to only few people about it who were objective enough to judge it, including a friend who isn’t in the UNDERTALE fandom at all, she’s been a great help and support. The ending is written with best intentions and heart, I know I won’t ever be able to satisfy everyone but thankfully there were souls who reminded me that it’s important to stay true to your self as writer.
I also want to send a huge huge THANKS to the whole Korean/Filipino/Japanese/Asian community of artists and fans ♥ You all have touched my hearts deeply with all the beautiful fanarts that I had the pleasure seeing either here or on twitter! Thank you for the art and kind support in word ^___^// ♥ It really made me happy so many times! I still can’t process just how big Echotale got, I am very slow at understanding some things… I want to apologize to all the people I’ve hurt in the process, as well (you know who you are, if you’re reading this at all). And there’s also special thanks for individual people on tumblr who supported me when I felt real down, thank you so much, sending you all my grannylove <3! I may not be able to speak to you a lot, but I appreciate you all and think about you with best wishes in my grannyheart!
I want to apologize for things like closing up the inbox, not
replying to messages or being generally very very slow and unresponsive.
And lastly but not least important, thank you to two very special people I encountered in the past half year>> @nyublackneko for simply being awesome and the little island of peace in my stormy days <333. And @junkpilestuff - I can hardly word anything regarding you
(whyisthatsointenseomghelp), but you really helped me out with all your gutt-kicks swung with care about me and the story and G in general. I will do my best to make the ending good, thanks to your advice and insight.
I had a ton of different plans for the next update but after quite the bunch of long and short talks with @junkpilestuff I might change them a bit. Sorry for continuing my confusion streak!! I might have to postpone the SHIFT chapters for a bit more, same with the Prequel - because I need to change a few things about the writing. So next will probably be Travelers/Wanderlust chapters. These will be very random stories about traveling in various lengths (from just one page to several), working as stand alone chapters.
NOTE: TRAVELERS chapters all happened very short after G and Frisk met, so they might have a different tone to them, please, don’t let it surprise/confuse you! These are placed possibly before chapter DESPITE EVERYTHING.
WANDERLUST chapters will have the same tone, just happening after the DESPITE chapter, shortly before Flowerfield. Having G and Frisk share the closer bond.
I’m still no good with tight schedules, since I have to draw for money as well and do other things beside this, it can get a bit overwhelming for an introvert snail who needs to rest many times and spend time on their own to regain energy.
Thank you all for everything, I hope this continues to be a fun experinece for all of us ♥ Thank you for your support and take care! Till next update!
