WOOBOI ALRIGHT FINALLY AFTER SHIT INTERNET CAUSING ALL UPLOADS TO HANG

So, right off the bat, AM and I wanna say how guilty we feel that Salt didn't show up often in this round. To be perfectly honest, we had a plot we already wanted to have happen in this round, but we also wanted to keep Salt as in-character as possible. Unfortunately, our plot didn't lend well to having Salt stick around very long (we even toyed with the idea of Salt making a big comeback during the fight with Pollux to help Talib and Katie, but we ultimately scrapped it because it wasn't in character for her, as we understood the character). We DID do whatever we could to make it so Salt was the inciting catalyst for the battle though, throwing Talib back down the incline into some of Pollux's flowers, after misconstruing Talib's instinct to help as an opportunistic attack. 

That being said: We also wanted to leave Salt's fate as 100% open-ended, while also being, ya know, possibly creepy. If you want my head-canon, Salt is gonna come outta that weirdass door even more of a badass, possibly cyborg-- just to say, "Hey thanks for returning my hat, dude. Appreciate it. Bai." BUT, that's up to saikopomp on what they'd ultimately choose for Salt behind that door! 

As for the vast dichotomy of quality in pages, we decided to work on pages in order of importance/impact this time. While we still ran out of time because I'm a dipshit, we think this is possibly a good way to work??? AM says it keeps the reader on their toes; "IS THE NEXT PAGE GONNA BE AMAZING OR PURE SHIT??? GOTTA READ TO FIND OUT!!"

Oh, and as for the reference to a "Mechanic" way back in the 1st page of this round + the quote that came up midway thru and at the end that Talib quoted-- there are 4 pages from the Audition that we haven't released yet (but we gave saikopomp our script so that they could work with the story as it were, so that it was fair), but we will be releasing those within the next day or two and then I'll edit out this comment-- hey, that's right, I'm talking to you Future-self, fucking remember to edit this shit. Coo thanks, self. Love, Past-self.

IGHT YEAH THAT'S ENOUGH FROM ME. GO GIVE saikopomp SOME LOVE TOO RIGHT NOW GO GO GO

As for me, ain't no rest for the wicked. Time to bust out the in-between comic, just in case we continue forward!

YO IVE BEEN SO EXCITED FOR THOS ROUND AND IT WAS SO GOOD! Y’all seriously have such a talent for this, the action, story, and pacing are all on point!

also I️ think it totally works to color the most important pages first.it keeps the big intense moments exciting and clear, it kinda shows which parts are the most important.

really amazing round! Can’t wait to see more of this :D

THANK YOU SDJSJHDSD I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW MUCH THAT MEANS TO KNOW ;__;

Yeah! We think this is a good system for us to follow henceforth-- and if I'm not a dipshit anymore and actually get stuff done FASTER, we can have even more polish!

THANK YOU AGAIN sdkjsdkjf <3

Goddamn. You guys are amazing! I know it was not intentional, but the pages AM was able to color, kind of served to transition scenes really REALLY well. Especially in the struggle against Pollux.

I also have to say that Talib's side of this story has a lot of weight to it, but his dynamic with Katie really hammers it home. Naturally wise due to her apparent age of 299, Katie serves to act as the bright side of Talib. And maybe, at the end of it, Talib will take some of that light with him during his dark journey through the Canis.

Great job guys!

AHH THANK YOU DUDE!! I'm hella thrilled that you liked it! ;__; I never even noticed that, that it helps the transitions! : D

Oh man dude, that is such a fantastic take on it! Yeah we are def trying to have these two ebb and flow a lot throughout this long journey of their's! Katie hardly remembers what happened in the Afterlife (due to reasons soon to be explained), but poor Talib remembers everything. To him, his chances of getting back to Issac are seeming to become more and more slim-- which means his reason for even bothering to live is becoming more and more slim too. THANKFULLY, Katie refuses to let him dwell in that too much!

Thank you again! ;__; <3
