I realized last night how much I'm grieving for the comic that I had realized so clearly in my head, that will now never exist. Cried about it for the first time. I've not talked about it much here, because I'm trying to be professional about it and because I've been hella busy, but - this has been fairly traumatic. I shied away from that word initially, but - it fits. This has *hurt*. And I've had to reframe so much in my head. And I need to allow myself space for the pain. This is kinda like breaking up with someone you've been dating for six years, y'know? This isn't easy.


haikujaguar has a rough of the map done. I met with excursively today to talk tech. And what I think we're going to be able to give you is interactive story-stuff, and I think we're going to start about fifty years before Our Story Begins - adding another layer of story every week or two weeks or however it works out until we get to the present day. (All previous stuff will be archived, or course.) So you guys will get things nice and chronologically. The main story will be the illuminated-manuscript thing, but I'll continue to have little storybits scattered through the map - stuff you don't need to read to keep up with the story, but is just there for people who want *more* story, who want to dig a little deeper or wander off on a tangent.

Anyone want to draw buildings? If you're good at that sort of thing, e-mail me at shadesong AT, and I'll give you a list to choose from.

This is not death. It is change. Going from the Red Queen's race to Kali's dance...
