Hello everyone, sorry I haven't had much to write about since chapter 15 began. Having finished all the page work for chapter 15 in early February, I'd hoped to use this time to work on assets and pre-planning for the upcoming arc. Unfortunately, my father fell very ill at that time, was hospitalized, and after weeks of struggle he has passed away.
I'd intended to write more, make this a proper formal announcement, but there's no good way to say "my father is dead so the schedule is up in the air". It is what it is. I'm fine, I'm calm, other family members are coping with varying degrees of success. Witnessing other people's grief is the hardest part so far. I expect things will settle into a new normal, but I can't even fathom what that normal will look or feel like when that happens. I also haven't had the heart to ask mom about what the financial landscape will look like without dad, but I expect things will be tight for a while. I don't want to shill my patreon when updates are so uncertain, but I do have a Kofi I made and then never used, so if anyone wants to send a little tip, it'll be a big help. Thanks for the support as always, and for following this little tale of mine.

Alright, I'm back! Good thing I made no promises, because the delay was crazier than expected. Among several other things that happened, work decided to go back to on-site, and then I proceeded to catch the new strain of covid two days before they figured out it was a bad idea and had us go back to remote working. So that's where January went, basically.
But!! We're starting the new chapter today! I hope you guys enjoy it, it's certainly been a lot of work!

Due to a variety of personal issues, I will refrain from giving a schedule for the beginning of chapter 15. Nothing serious is going on-- it's just a whole lot of small things that are happening at once, and which have eaten into my script-writing time. This end-of-year is promising to be particularly eventful in my house!
