HAPPY NEW CHAPTER! HAPPY NOVEMBER! Happy belated Hallowe’en! Happy first day of Christmas! I’m excited to roll right into the next chapter with you!

This chapter is going to be largely textless montage as we have a lot of ground to cover to get to the next (last!) chapter – so consider this my blessing to read it however feels enjoyable for you: feel free to check back weekly as normal, set a reminder to check back in thirteen weeks (January 31), or read the entire chapter at once by pledging to Patreon. Any way you do it, thank you as always for reading. <3


On a largely textless page with the caption ‘SEPTEMBER’, Alex convalesces in her princess-pink bedroom looking bored. She eyes Eiji’s book (‘Living with Purpose’) on the nightstand, sighs, and picks up her phone.
