i know i’ve basically been a complete shit as far as… pretty much walking away from this in its entirety.
i kept trying to come back here and at least type up “what was gonna happen” but i just. kept… not doing it haha.
i know i probably pissed a lot of you off, and for good reason because wow you guys were the literal best fans a guy could ask for when it comes to patience and consideration, and you so did not deserve me fizzling out and flaking off for months and months, giving you nothing.
ok i’m falling into an apology spiral again so i’m gonna cut myself off before this gets too long.
i didn’t really have much of a direction following the fight between ken and amadeus.
i left you with ken about to go berserk on deus, and he was gonna beat the hell out of him ‘til KO, while rhode called the fight off and called adam out on cheating and trying to kill his fighter. it would have been an excellent face-off between two incredibly shrewd smart guys, but ken was actually going to just go straight to adam and murder him because that’s how he functions. pepper would have been cowering behind rhode basically the entire time and when ken finally stopped running on raging bloodlust (“good JOB ken you killed him now what the hell are we supposed to do with the rest of his mob on us” “iunno”) he was gonna look at pepper and the abject fear in his little eyes would have turned a tiny knife in his emotionally wooden gut for reasons unknown
and i dunno the specifics from there but
i guess the point was pepper was going to take one more chance on a monster and ken was going to slowly learn to stop being one.
the whole story was a lot of fun to do while it was fresh
but looking back on it now it’s just. not something i can comfortably go back to. if i could do it over i’d do it much, much differently
which is not to say this is a thing i plan to do. no, this story ends here.
i’m truly sorry for leaving you all hanging, and terribly thankful for those who stuck around with that thin ray of hope.
i’m probably not going to come back to this comic blog at all anymore, but i won’t close it down or anything. it’ll stay up for those who still don’t hate me for abandoning it haha. y’all are free to check up and reread and shake your fist at me for what could have been.
anyway thank you again for existing, all of you. this is goodbye for sharkteethcomic! if you’re a tumblr resident and still wish to see things from me, and/or haven’t found me yet, i’ve got my own personal art tumblr here. (er, though if you hate homestuck i’d probably steer clear or employ tumblr savior if i were you)
