Do you ever intend to get back to the story, or are you going to continue to post trash and tripe?

@Dragonrider: The answer is quite simple, dragon. The story will continue when Ren is capable of making pages again. With her move, then followed by the holiday months, things have been hectic on her side. We are posting some fun side stuff that she's done so as not to make the drought of pages feel too empty. You're always welcome to help by producing some guest comics or something, though.

@Dragonrider: I know, it seems to take forever ^^'

Mostly due to fault on my side. I've moved to a different country a few months back, it took up a lot more time then I had in mind.
On that note, seeing as I've had a new start I'm also looking at how to produce the comic and what is a priority in my daily life. The comic is still being worked on, but on a different format in planning as before.
I am now trying to work in 'bulk' on pages, so once I've finished a set, there will be consistent updates again.

Short term this is not ideal, and I understand that. I am hoping that this will fix long term problems and we won't have to go with long no update stretches anymore.

TLDR; Life got in the way, we are working on it :)

@Dragonrider: We are sad to hear you will be giving up the comic due to the hiatus. Please take this bag of wonderful treats with you as you move on to read other comics. Of course, this comic is also produced entirely for free, so really, stay or leave and you're getting your money's worth. Of course, if more people donated over Patreon, this money could go to helping to pay for Ren to continue to focus on the comic, instead of needing a job and other such things for survival. Comic production would increase drastically even. Still, if you feel as though a product being given to you for free is not meeting your expectations, you have no obligations to stick around and continue to ingest it. Thank you for sticking through until now, and may your days be brighter in the future.

Ren and Em, would it be possible to switch the format to something easier to draw? Perhaps black and white, or just the line-art? I understand you both want to deliver a quality product and I respect that, but "quality" can also mean "timeliness in schedule". This is particularly important when trying to build the popularity of your comic over the Internet; irregular updates and short attention spans rarely jive.

Perhaps you could do it a bit like newspaper comics, where most of them, the ones with a lot of dialogue and exposition, and very little movement on the narrative or character development, are done with just line-art, or even smaller with fewer panels, but the more important ones (like the Sunday pages) can be done in full size and full colour. This might make things easier on the artist and allow for an easier to achieve schedule.

Just a thought. <3

@FallingStar: Thanks for thinking with us!
The things you mention are definitely worth considering.

At the moment new pages are being produced, and a new workflow I created seems to be a time saver. (where color is still an option)

We hope to at least start updating weekly again this month, and then try to keep that up.

If that fails, your suggestions are one of the things we are planning on trying :)
