Given how short this one turned out to be, I feel bad about it taking two months to get this out, but here's Chapter 9 of Tico3. The lull in the action will be coming to an end after this and we'll be sent screaming to the climax. In the meantime, look for the next chapter of TTWC1 next week. Stay tuned.

Mascot Monday is back in action with a sequel to the previous episode. Kick back and enjoy Volume 25: "Self-Storage II". Look forward to the next chapter of Tico3 later this week and we should have the next chapter of TTWC1 next week. If all goes well, we can be back on a regular update schedule. Stay tuned.

What better way to celebrate the sixth annual observation of International Ayame Jellybean Day than to show off a silly picture of the mascot? Surely, I can think of no better way. Hopefully I can get back into the swing of things with more regular Mascot Monday updates soon, to say nothing of actual story updates. One more week, ladies and gents. Stay tuned.

I wish I had a story update for you guys, but I'm swamped with end-of-the-semester insanity and though I have a couple chapters of Junker Jorg I completed during spring break, I don't think I should debut another story at this point. I've just got two more weeks and it'll all be over and I can focus on getting some writing done. In the meantime, enjoy this Lego animation of two doughty knights jousting in the lists. I'll have a story update for you in three weeks at the latest. Until then, stay tuned.

And now for a brief announcement.
Even though I'm going to be back at the grind in a matter of hours and with other stuff demanding my attention as well, I've still scrounged up the time to deliver a much-delayed new episode of Mascot Monday. In Volume 24: "Self-Storage", we see one of the mascot's many talents at work and have a cameo appearance by the dreaded orange rival. Enjoy!

It's been two months since the last chapter, but here's Xanthe's Chapter 4 of TTWC1. In several hours I'll be back with a Mascot Monday post.
While I haven't made the sort of headway I should've on the things I'm paid for and the things I'm paying for, I did do quite a bit of writing. In a surprise flurry of inspiration, I've already gotten 10K into the Cross Arc's Junker Jorg. If only I could do the same with some of the less high-profile stories in production at the moment. I haven't even started on the next chapter of Tico3, so I won't make any speculations on the next update at the moment. Maybe I'll go ahead and share some of this Junker Jorg. We'll see. Stay tuned.

I was able to get this out the door sooner than expected, so here's Chapter 8 of Tico3 for your viewing pleasure. You can catch up on how Miranda's doing. In other news, because next week is spring break, you can expect the much-delayed new ep of Mascot Monday at long last and if all goes well, the next chapter of TTWC1 as well. Stay tuned.

Well, I've finished updating KoG1, so maybe I'll get off my keister and get some querying done. I've also whipped up another teaser, the Tellus Arc story The Shadow of the Morning Star. This is actually one of my older stories, but I've only recently sorted out some issues that were keeping me from putting it up for display. I have this one in the Other Stories, but it actually ties together most of the cycles in the Tellus Arc. Enjoy.

When you think about it, this pile of fur the junior mascot has found is like a teaser for the mascot herself. If you can do those mental gymnastics and not pull a muscle, then I've got you in the mood for a veritable boatload of teasers. For the Tellus Arc, we have The Boy King's Madness and The Song of the Eight Stars. For the Earth Arc, we have It's a Sunny Day for a Bank Job. The Cross Arc gets Nagareboshi Ten'nyo and the If Arc welcomes The Ticonderoga Mutiny and "The Dragon Lady's Dark Secret". You may be asking, "How on earth do you expect to finish all these stories in your lifetime?" That depends entirely on how long I wind up living. Of course, so long as the inspiration keeps on coming, I'll always have a sizable backlog of titles in preproduction. Shoot, you should see my running list of ideas that haven't made it to the preproduction level. I've always got that to look to as well.
Anyway, I'm still slowly but surely making my way through KoG1. I'll let you know when I'm done because I'm updating the version of the story that's on the site as I go as well. Right now I have up to Chapter 4 and I'll probably wait until I get a few more chapters done before I update some more. This might cause a bit of a disconnect for new readers, but I don't think I have that much traffic to worry about. Anyway, enjoy the new teasers and hopefully I can have a new chapter up within the next three weeks. (Spring break starts the 11th and I've got some other projects that I should really be focusing on until then.) Stay tuned.

Well, a month and some change is still better turnaround than the last gap between chapters. The mascot is bound to wake up to something more pleasant than what you'll find in Chapter 7 of Tico3. Pretty heavy stuff.
There's a lot competing for my attention at the moment, so I'm not going to promise another chapter, either from Tico3 or TTWC1, anytime too soon. Maybe two or three weeks. I'm currently wanting to go back over KoG1 before I make some new queries. And that doesn't even touch on all the other stuff that's got me hopping. I'll try to get those teasers out next week at least and maybe an ep of Mascot Monday will come out tomorrow. Stay tuned.

I really should be asleep, but I figure I'm well past due for the latest Mascot Monday. Volume 23: "Playtime for Ayame" features the mascot having fun with an insect companion.
As for story updates, still no sign of a chapter being ready just yet, but I should be able to present the teasers for two new stories in development. Stay tuned.
