I apologize for the inactivity, guys. I have not been feeling well and haven't even been able to check my messages. Hope you're all doing well!
(TL;DR version is below in bolded text.)

I would like to get everyone's opinion on something. Usually, I would make a poll about this sort of question, but I am membership-less at the moment and a journal can give more information, truthfully.

As most of you know, finances and the earth we stand on both don't particularly favor me. I am always under some sort of financial duress (Lord willing, that will stop this year! :)) or pulled away from my tasks by life punching me hard in the solar plexus.

I understand this is a normal thing and I live under the philosophy that I must be happy and take care of what I have before I'm blessed with better. Let's take my laptop, for instance. I've had my massive, lovable paperweight for who knows how long-- probably 6 or 7 years now. The model of the laptop, however, is a decade old. The only reason it's still alive is because I have never connected it to the internet. Not even once. All it's good for is for drawing and typing... and for the past 6-7 years, I've been bringing AGENCY to you courtesy of that laptop, flash drives and a secondary computer with internet.  I have to travel outside my home to upload something, because we have no other computer to call our own.

I have been very happy and grateful for it. But the joyride is coming to an end. The poor thing is slowing down, crashing often due to old age and the inconveniences are growing larger and larger. I have no interest in getting a cheap, little replacement to get by and I am absolutely not wanting to "repair" this old thing. I will take advantage of every ounce of energy my old friend can provide, but what will happen when it's all said and done?

Well... I have been able to acquire a good scanner. And a wireless one, to boot.

I would really like to get your opinion. If worse comes to worse, how would you feel about AGENCY being traditionally inked and colored (either marker or watercolor) for a little [undetermined] while?

Believe me, I wouldn't like to lose the quality of my digital art, but I would rather choose this and for the show to go on instead of having another stupidly long hiatus. I do have commissions going on, odd jobs here and there trying to make money and prevent it from happening, but your outlook matters to me as well!

Please let me know and thank you for reading!

[Start reading from the beginning]

I'm like really milking this dumb dress for all it's worth in this chapter.
And reading expressions is going to be very important as well, guys.

Bravely Together
This game is a severely guilty pleasure. The most blah storyline, horrifyingly terrible gameplay by the final stretch of the game... but the most INCREDIBLY GORGEOUS MUSIC and great characters with SO MUCH POTENTIAL.

I don't care what ANYONE says about these protagonists. They may be cliché, but when you look past the glaring tropes, the character growth some of them experience (*COUGH*Ringabel*COUGH*) is absolutely beautiful. The priestess who loses her faith, the farm boy who loses everything, the mysterious stranger who loses his memory (OMG THIS GUY. I LOVE THIS GUY, HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE MAIN CHARACTER) and the noble who loses her dignity... I have the most complicated love/hate relationship with Bravely Default.

Can't sleep. Mind swimming with ideas. Fingers too slow to type them all. Wish to acquire caffeine but cannot at this hour. Woe.

I've devoted a lot of my free time to fanart until getting to the point that it's hard to stop. Professional artists will most likely see that as a fault in me. But it's been effective practice. AGENCY is the biggest fanfiction I've ever made and quite possibly the last before I move on to broader pastures. I love seeing that people are enjoying the story and I hope some are willing to stick around and watch me beyond that.

Your agency comic is amazing I remember reading it six years ago, and I just found it again today and was glad to read it again. You definitely deserve more views and recognition for your comic.

I just came across your comic for the first time, and I must say, I've never seen anything like it. I'm curious, when coming up with the idea, were you worried about the cast of characters being too random and extensive that people wouldn't be able to keep track of or know who they were?

The combination is really interesting, too. I would have never expected Shadow and Sandy to be able to work in character interaction such as this, but it does.

How long did it take you to build a following, and did you ever feel as if it wasn't worth continuing or you didn't have the skill to pursue it as you wished?

Do you have any tips for writing a crossover like this? Apologies for all the questions, but I am intrigued to see such things as I have my own ideas but am wondering whether I possess the talent and originality required for such an undertaking. You seem to be a good source, as you've already gotten somewhere with a similar project. Thank you for your time~
