Gah! What? What, Jeff?! Surely you saw there was only six panels on this page—spit it out!
Phew… All right… Deep breaths… Back to my regularly scheduled page notes… Let’s see here…
Hey, we’re at $181 towards the next bonus page!
Special thanks go out to long-time supporters Bernard S. (who just made their 3rd donation to Artifice!) & Mark L. (who just made their 5th donation to Artifice!) and a warm welcome and grateful bow go out to new supporters Paul E., Egor S., Desiree E., Hailie F. & Ammon T. for their generous donations over the last few days!
Big hugs go out to new friend of Artifice Rebecca K. and also to long-time friends of Artifice Jenny K. (who has just made their 2nd super-generous donation!) and Larisa V. (who has just made their 8th super-generous donation!) for their super-generous $25 donations!
Thank you all so, so much! (This continues to be a rough month for me and your generosity and support helps me more than you can even know. )
And OMG—I did it again! I dropped another page-break while Jeff was mid-sentence! You know, when I was wrote this scene, picturing it to be read all at one time, the pacing (to me anyway) felt suspenseful, but not crazy. But releasing this as a webcomic, this update makes me feel just a little too much like Dr. Frank-N-Furter:
(I love that eye thing that Tim Curry does right before that first cutaway to Susan Sarandon. Genius…)
Well, I promise, on the next page, Jeff will get to finish his sentence!
(But I suppose we should be at least a little patient with him, considering the circumstances. I mean, what would you say to your android-lover with his finger on the button that will kill you?)
Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Kristi & Fabiana and pre-HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Alis! I hope you all have wonderful, fun-filled days and nights!
