Hey everyone! Thank you all so much for the birthday wishes! I usually don't make a fanfare or announce it in real life cuz I'm low key so to get such warm wishes online is always a lovely feeling.

I turn 26 this year... *YES I'M ACTUALLY REALLY OLD NOW LOL* But funnily enough, for some reason I thought I was turning 27. I told my doctor this when I visited her for a checkup and was worried because there's a certain series of vaccines you're supposed to get if you're a woman to prevent you from getting a type of cancer that I forgot the name of lolol. Anyways, insurances usually only cover it until you turn 27, after which you have to pay about $100+ per shot. I thought I was going to miss the cut off date and she was all confused and was like... "No, you turn 26 this year."

And it was like I had actually magically gotten a whole year younger instead of getting a year older!!! *A*

BUT ANYWAYS. Thank you everyone ^^


Now, for the news you've been waiting for. If you follow me on my tumblr account, you'll know that I've finally gotten around to working on Raindrops. I post snippets and little updates and pictures of sketches. But to summarize, I finally planned/thumnailed all of the pages based off of my script and it looks like the total number of pages you'll get for Chapter 8 will tentatively be.... (are you ready for this?) A whopping 85 pages! (cover art/extras not included). That's like a whole book by itself!!! I'm seriously considering splitting it up into 3 acts, but I guess part of the reason why I like doujinshi is that I can dictate how long a story is and when to break the flow.

Anyways, I will sometimes post sketches of the rough pages that I am starting to finally work on now that thumbnail planning is done. Here are a

LOL see those hideous nonsensical scribbles?! They’re all thumbnails of doujinshi layout page planning. I am capping it at a tentative 85 pages total for Raindrops 8. *thank god I never thought I’d reach the end of that script* Slowly but surely… Sketching will finally be able to get underway now! 
Don’t bother trying to decipher what you see they make no sense whatsoever to anybody but me.

Here, have some Sango and Kagome panels from tonight’s Raindrops rough page sketches. 
I’ll just post some of my WIP stuff for now to keep your anxiety at bay. Look I’m working!

The Inu-tachi from Page 5 of Chap 08 rough sketches.

If you want to get more updates on Raindrops progress follow me on tumblr! I most likely will not post any WIP stuff relating to Raindrops on DA.

And while it's good news that progress is finally underway, the bad news is well... IT'S 85 FRICKIN' PAGES. And I usually will not start posting up the doujinshi until I've sketched ALL OF THE PAGES. I don't know if I'll post them up as I clean them (meaning the old formula of once a week) or if I'll post them up once I've finished the entire thing (which means a page a day maybe?) 

Anyway, point is: You probably won't be seeing any actual pages anytime soon. But uhhhh have some WIP sketches to stave off your anxiety!



Also as a side note, if you're a SessKag fan and frequent Dokuga, you'll know that the site is once again in need of some fundraising to keep going! 
One of my oldest running fandoms that I’m still actively a part of since Single Spark was around. Even if I’m more of a creeping participant nowadays, lol. Don’t know what I’d do if Dokuga were to be gone. The site itself is really a testament to the dedication of it's fans, whom have continued to love and create content for this alternative crack couple in the Inuyasha world and it's really amazing! I'd say sesskag fans arguably keep the Inuyasha fandom itself continually alive. Please help if you can!

The site needs about $2574.00 per year to operate, so every little bit helps! Spreading the word would be just as helpful! >.<
