Further updates on the school thing - I think I'm probably gonna hold off until spring to attend. Main reason is I'm just not ready to suddenly start going to school - I should build up a big pile of as much money as I can for emergencies, etc, so I can focus on school FULL time.

Other thing I found out is that they granted me highest merits because of my portfolio.. I did not see that coming. Effectively my tuition is almost halved. Crazy stuff. I'll let you guys in on more details as they arrive, but yeah, big changes on the horizon for me.

Chase and Clara are united! Man, there's some.. some things to talk about, huh? Heheh..

Kudos on your portfolio! You've been around long enough to know that waiting for a plan to come to fruition can be frustrating but having that plan is the surest way to achieve success.
I'm looking forward to the conversation between Clara and Chase. Chase is probably the only one who would accept that seeing Irwin was a real thing. I can see why MP might leave her out, as it doesn't advance the plot but in the twenties and even a late as the eighties there there would have been a house mother or matron who would be totally underfoot.

I just realized Chase is in his pajamas and slippers. He really did jump out of bed for Clara.

Thank you! Yeah, just figures after I have a mental breakdown about where this whole thing is getting me and why I'm still doing it, I get some form of validation, haha.

Yeah, I know there would be a matron that would be hovering around the whole situation but I didn't want to waste screen real-estate on a character just because it 'makes sense for them to be there', it would ultimately take too many panels to establish and I'm on a mission to get this story moving, heheh ;)

Yes, Chase literally got up and going as soon as he got the news!

Congratulations on the school news. One of the reasons that I like this web comic is that it is obviously a labor of love for you as you also seek to improve your talent. They could see that, too.

They did say the comic was not a small part in their determining factor to accept me or give me the grant :)

Thank you so much, Bob, I love having the support of great fans like you!

that's good to hear that they halved your tuition for having a really good portfolio. And it totally makes sense to wait a bit before actually going there!

Cannot say but chances are Irwin is nearby. This is probably the best chance in quite a while when all of them can finally meet and talk.
I must say I have been looking forward to Chase meeting Irwin for QUITE some time myself. Since Irwin came back to the town, really. Maybe not now, maybe yes but I doubt it is going to be anything heart warming. Probably would be best if Irwin remained "dead". Their worlds changed completely.

---

Cool! That is one reason why I tell students they should always have something prepared or slowly work on that when they can. Helps more than "just" having a school :D
Good luck!

Hard to say whether Irwin is near or not.. it would seem that Chase could somehow sense his absence before, in Dagon's Lady. Was that just a hunch? Hmm..

Yeah, Chase meeting Irwin would be quite a scene, wouldn't it? ;)

---

Oh totally. Things like this are one of the many reasons I started working on this comic, it's just great that it finally paid off :) Thank you!

Yay! More congrats on the nearly halved tuition :D

Piling up money beforehand is IMHO a good idea, but we have spring now, don't we, almost summer, do you mean spring next year? That's quite a wait.

Re: Comic page - great "flow" (<- it there a better word for it?), but I have to agree with MGNOSTIC about a house mother and even if she'd be out of the house, there are the other women, so Clara's room is probably the worst place for a talk right now. Maybe a quick one.

That aside, how did Chase learn about this incident so fast? Clara is maybe too excited to ask this question and for sure they have more important things to talk about, buuut... as reader, I wanna know :)

Their "Spring" semester starts in January, so it's more of a winter semester? Weird, I know. All the same, I don't want to keep waiting, but I HATE not having money..

Yeah, as I replied to Mgnostic, it's just too much page to designate for a character that basically wouldn't show up again. Sorry - I have to make some sacrifices to keep things moving :')

Clara has a phone! Access to one, anyway. One can presume that she called him, but perhaps today's page will have some more info there :D

Wow! That's some good fortune on the tuition. :D

This will indeed be a momentous conversation.

I can't believe it, I shalt - I need more! Found the comic, always been curious about Lovecraft but never read it. Your comic hooked me immediately. Your style and scenery cast an amazingly deep atmosphere, and everything is given just the right level of insight. A spectacular effort which I shall take great pleasure watching develop.

Aaah, another binge victim? Haha, it's the nature of webcomics, unfortunately..

But wow, this is quite flattering! I intended this for audiences that were only vaguely familiar with the lore of Lovecraft, so I'm glad it was easily adaptable, but to hear such a glowing review just warms my heart. Thank you, Kae, I hope you continue to enjoy :)
