So it's been a while.

I've been thinking of what to say here for quite a while, but first things first: I'm sorry. I used to get pretty peeved when webcomic artists just up and left projects without a word, and that's pretty much what I ended up doing. That wasn't the intention; several factors, both personal and busyness/work-related contributed to not updating, as well as a general sense of weariness towards the internet recently. Without droning on, I just wanted to sincerely apologize for that.

As for the status of the comic, I've been continuing drawing it on and off throughout the past year in different formats, nothing too serious (or good, oh man). I'm not going to promise anything at this point; there's an awful lot on the horizon and the last thing I can promise is a consistent update schedule. However, I do think I'd like to finish it eventually... after all, it was my first big project, and it originated from a pretty personal place. Having started it as a horribly embarrassing high school student, I can't read parts of it without cringing, but it's close to my heart, and I kind of don't want to leave it hanging! Like I said though, NO promises at this point (senior year is coming, pray 4 me).

Maybe I'm talking to myself at this point, but for those of y'all who are still around, thanks for reading this silly comic, I'm so grateful for everyone who has commented, asked questions, read silently, or has generally been pleasant towards this strange thing on the internet.

-Alli

*HAPPY SHRIEK* I'm just glad to see you're alive!!!

Heh, I just resurrected 2 of my "not sure if hiatus but oh man it's been a year (or 2)since this updated" comics myself, I definitely understand how that can happen. I'll be happy to see the story no matter what form it takes!

@AmyOf Darkness: Ahhhh, thank you for your words, friend! :') Stuff piles up and it's easy for webcomics to slide away in the chaos, as you know... thanks for your support though, I missed ya! <3

It's been a while
Hey, how're you doing? I can barely believe I started reading this comic in High School and now I'm going for my last college year... Time flies, man. I certainly hope you're doing fine, and would love to see this comic going again! Stay awesome, Alli!

@DragonFireflies: Oh my goodness, thank you so much for your comment, it made my night! You bet time flies though; I started it as a (painfully awkward) high schooler myself and actually just graduated college in June. I've learned SO much about making art, storytelling, and life in general since then which makes looking back on it pretty funny (and just a little bit embarrassing), but also sentimental and encouraging! While I'm working on some new projects these days, one of which tackles similar anxiety-related stuff, Moondance will always hold such a special place in my heart... I would love to give it a little revamp at some point, even if as something totally different from what it started as. (On that note, feel free to keep up with some recent stuff at www.alligildea.com!)

Anyway, I so appreciate you dropping in to comment; most likely due to the influx of time that follows graduation I've been thinking about MD a lot, and honestly the comments you and others left over time (including the one you just left) encouraged me SO much and breathed life into this bizarre concept of a comic. So you stay awesome too, DragonFireflies! <3
