A majority of readers thought I was going to kill someone: More specifically Arth. I'm sure everyone is glad to be wrong on that, right? Grandpa bug lives to see another chapter! Consider it a Christmas present from me.
PRS will be going on hiatus while I get Chapter 14 rolling. ETA for that to start will be in early March. I know that seems very far off but I think I've figured out a sort of production schedule that works for me. It'll let me do about 2 chapters a year by working at a steady but manageable pace. Until then, asks will once again open up to help pass the time.
If you are interested in getting this chapter's pages in their full 2000x3000px resolution with notes, annotations, scripts, thumbnails, and concept sketches included: Keep an eye on my patreon. A PDF containing all of this will be available to patrons in the very near future! Of course, you could also choose to wait for the Arc 2 PDF which will be available in the summer after Ch14 is done...
Speaking of, yes: There is one chapter left for this arc. Much like Chapter 8, it'll be a sort of aftermath type chapter... there may not be a lot of action but I think you'll like what I've got planned. =) Oh how fun it'll be to have another character interacting with Echo. I'm sure they'll be the best of friends.
Anyway, thanks for all of the support and love this chapter. It's been a blast seeing everyone's comments and predictions! Enjoy the holidays~!
