Part I: Apolo­gies

1. Sorry this post is up a little later than I’d hoped. I wanted to talk with John before putting it up, and the ear­li­est time we could talk was Sunday evening. Thus, the Monday post.

2. Sorry for the abrupt­ness of the ending of the Troy sto­ry­line.

Part II: An Expla­na­tion

For those of you who have pay reg­u­lar atten­tion to this blog­space, you may recall a post from March in which I dis­cussed our plan for Chronillogical’s nar­ra­tive moving for­ward. One of the com­po­nents of this plan was to wrap up the Troy sto­ry­line more quickly than pre­vi­ously intended. Per­haps our inten­tions were under­stated, and the extent of our stream­lin­ing caught people by sur­prise. But the essen­tial logic behind our task was simply this: we wanted to get on with telling other time travel sto­ries, so we cut away every­thing we felt was extra­ne­ous to the gang return­ing to the present.

That said, we’re not going to leave all these ques­tions dan­gling. More on that in just a moment.

Part III: Moving For­ward

We’re plan­ning to focus now on making larger, more self-​contained updates on a less fre­quent basis. These larger updates will vary in size and com­plex­ity, and as such I don’t think we’re going to be able to commit to a reg­u­lar update sched­ule for them.1

With a slower and more erratic update sched­ule, John and I feel oblig­ated to fill the inter­ven­ing peri­ods with some kind of con­tent to keep you engaged. We have a few ideas already: the one most press­ingly rel­e­vant is our plan to do “mini-​comics” in the gray-​scale style of our pre­vi­ous filler strips. The first batch of mini-​comics is going to focus on resolv­ing some of those lin­ger­ing issues from the Troy storyline’s con­clu­sion. Per­haps you could think of it as a kind of extended epi­logue? For exam­ple, we will be taking a look at how Cas­san­dra is adjust­ing to life in the 21st cen­tury.

We don’t have a plan as to the update sched­ule for the mini-​comics. One thought is to stick with the Tuesday-​Friday thing. We may simply try to do two a week and leave the exact days unspec­i­fied and vary­ing. We’re not sure now, but we’ll keep you posted.

We have some other con­tent ideas up our sleeves, but we’ll wait a bit before we promise any­thing on that front.

Part IV: Con­clu­sion

That’s it! If you have any ques­tions or con­cerns about the stuff I’ve men­tioned in this post (or else­where), ask away; feed­back is always appre­ci­ated 🙂
