    Getting better.

    I have to say, the slightly longer episodes are well worth the 1 week wait.

    Is the lady figure in any way related to the Abominatrix?

    Agree, getting better.

    I don’t recall making an official announcement about it, but the pages of this story are going to be 1000 words. I figured I needed to stretch the writing muscles a bit. Hopefully I can get back up into the multiple thousands like I used to do in the old days.

    This story does have a connection to the Abominatrix. The mysterious female figure with the soldiers is a sign of that connection, although a more overt sign comes much later in the story. The Mother of Horrors gets mentioned explicitly at least once, but the events of COTA have nothing to do with the goings-on in this tale. Consider the two stories to be… neighbors. heh. Heh, heh…

    I’d love to see the stories return back to the days of 1 or 2 full chapters a month, but I don’t expect that’ll happen. You’re busy with life and your paying job, and I fully understand how that must occupy the majority of your time.

    These 1k word installments are a perfect length for the update schedule you’ve set for this story, and IMO are better than the 3×500 word installments that you’ve tried in the past.

    I am much more intrigued by this story so far than I ever was with COTA. I am going to re-read COTA at some point in time, now that I have it in entirety, but to be honest it never really hooked me when it was going on.

    This story has already set the hook.

    This story is giving me a wizard of oz/Through the looking glass vibe.

    Still rooting for the puppy.
