Okay, I've got the majority of the chapter summaries that I assigned people, but there's still a couple I'm missing. I'll give the stragglers until the end of this week, but after that I'll assume I'm not getting that one and just write it myself. Also, if any of you that have turned them in and have not claimed their sketch requests yet still want to, please let me know! If I haven't responded to anyone's message about any of that, my inbox probably ate it or something so please resend! And thank you guys so much for your help with these! <3
Yes, I am aware that it's been like 2 and a half weeks since I've updated. I have been busy and there have been a lot of shitty things going on that haven't exactly done wonders for my motivation to come home after an 8 hour office day and draw comics. That said, it looks like most of said shitty things have worked themselves out at this point (the universe just decided to trip me and then felt bad and helped me up, basically), so I'm on an upswing at the moment. If it could just, you know, stay this way for a couple weeks that'd be cool.
Question of the Update: So, how do you think they found Earth's gate?
Life happens... it is icky... that's why we invented gumboots and rubber gloves.
As for the Gate, is it possible that the stones weren't actually tied to any one gate and that they attuned to the first gate they used? Could they have been looking specifically for a world that had humans and Earth simply happened to be the world with humans that had the same geographical layout as Sanvolae? Maybe the stones act as a guide to their gate if you ask them to? So many possibilities.
Also, there's something screwy about the commenting feature here, the "close" button you get after replying to a comment doesn't close the window/tab. Also, it doesn't (automatically) open the "post your comment" page in a new window/tab (which is probably related).
As browser said life isn't all sunshine and rainbows so always keep a raincoat handy. As for the stones could be sheer luck they found the door in the first place or perhaps they all found a different door that lead to a different version of earth which would mean Maya wouldn't necessarily be from the south america that Riza knows. Hmmmm...
When a person opens their mind they can fell the dreamstone. It's kind of like a tugging, a feeling or thought to go this way or that. The stones consciousness, if it can be called that, is connected to the dream world. As such it "knows" where to take you based on the thoughts of your mind.
