Ah... sorry about that. ^_^;;; I never got your message on this board, since my efforts to get some traffic here before failed. Everyone liked the other board better, but now that it's down I've rediscovered this one and your message.
About the character development... ah.. it's unfortunate. ;_; I mean.. I know the characters so well, but I still find it hard to get across everything I want to. Well.. this story arc is nearly over now, and I'm hoping that the next one will give some better insight into Ariel at least, though I'm still trying to get my writing talents onto par with the art... or closer to par.
Any help on what sort of things would be good for development would be appreciated though. I hope that doesn't sound like a cop out, but sometimes I'm not really sure where to begin. I was considering writing some companion stories to give some back info on Ariel and Scrue at least (I've done too much planning on their earlier lives, and want to share some of that). If they go over well, I would make them comics at a later time. If you check this board again, I'd love to hear what you think of that idea.
Again, sorry for not seeing your post months ago. X_x This board doesn't auto-mail letters to me like the old one did.
