But do any of them really know what "Marvedyne" is?

Ok, that's it for now. At some point in the near future I'll post a cover image for chapter 14 and get the Gumroad package together. By the way, I'm thinking of making the Gumroads pay-what-you-want. It just seems to make more sense. I don't want anyone who already paid $2 for them to feel cheated, though. What do you think? Would you feel cheated?

Anyway, if you miss me while I'm working on Chapter 15, be sure to follow me on twitter @kitroebuck. I mostly just tweet when I have pictures to show, but there should be a few things coming down the line.

I had a long debate with myself whether or not she was going to do the de-aging thing here. I recognize that there are problems with this plot-line; I'm just hoping they'll even out in the end. Which is to say: I'm unpacking this stuff as I write it, you know?

You know, it occurred to me recently as I've been reading other webcomics to get myself back in touch for my return to regular updates, that maybe I should have found a different format for this project. Like release it bi-monthly on Comixology or something. Particularly if I'm going to take 5 months off in the middle of a chapter. Gets confusing for people who don't want to reread 300+ pages of comics to get back up to speed. Then when I try to be intentionally confusing it's doubly confusing and everybody's like "whaaaa?"

Too late now, though; let's power through.

I promise that Luke's first words here are not an example of this trope.

The next nine pages after this one are ready to go, so you can expect regular updates for five weeks. After that, there will be pause until chapter 15 is done, then 12 weeks, etc... I should have done it this way from the beginning, honestly.
