Sorry about not saying anything before, guys. I never plan a hiatus, it just sort of snowballs between mounds of "I'll finish it this weekend for sure, just as soon as I'm done with this essay", and "I've been quiet for so long, I can't say anything unless I have something to upload!".
But yes. Read the above for a full explanation. And the next time this comic uploads, the comic will be finished. I'll probably not post the pages here, but they'll be available for download and full-reading.
Until then, any activity, if any, will be on my DA account, XoverLover. I'm really sorry if I've made any of you feel like you're not important to me: you guys are my inspiration, and I would've dropped the comic for simplicity's sake a long time ago if I didn't know you were still there.
THESE ARE SUCH GOOD NEWS
I'M SO HAPPY
I guess I'll have to admit I really thought this comic had been abandoned, but I always had a tiny bit of faith that you were gonna come back (I write, both fanfics and originals, so I kind of understand what it's like to being on either side, both the author and the reader). Now that I'm sure that this is not long forgotten I don't really mind how long it takes for you to upload.
Take your time. Relax.
Hope everything's going well with college :)
I totally understand!!! I found your comic monthss ago and totally fell in love with it! It was actually one of the very firs yaoi i've ever read, and since i've read many more, but yours has always been one of my favorites!! thank you for taking the time to explain this to us, and take all the time you need completing this comic!!it's worth it!!! we'll be excitedly (and as patiently as possible) waiting for your next upload!! :)
it's so great to hear from you! I'm so happy to hear that you want to finish this comic. that's only going to make it more exciting when you do begin to update again :DDD I hope school is going well for you, and I'm glad your not letting a project you aren't even being paid for consume your life ;)
Going through school, myself (as well as being a horrible procrastinator >_>) I can totally understand not having the time to make regular updates. As well as the desire to have it actually finished before doing any more. I have other comics that take long times to get pages up, and, really, I don't mind one bit. There are other things on the internet to entertain, and that long wait just makes the next update that much more exciting and special (for me, anyway. can't speak for others).
Your stuff is worth waiting for, imho :3 So take as long as you need ^_^
I know what it's like to go on hiatus. Some people just don't understand. Besides, I had faith that you'd come back to it, and I'll keep watching even if it takes an extra year or two! :) Glad to hear you're doing well, too. Good luck!
Please do not stress over us. Do what makes you happy and less stressed please! It's important and far more awesome that you are going through college then this and I don't want you worrying over our impatient tails! T^T
I understand sad to say I used to be one of those insensitive viewers wondering why artist haven't updated. I will say I was a dumb 13 year old back then but now that Im 20 in college and tried doing my own comic (with not nearly as much dedication, and work as you have) I am much more understanding. I love your work and though I would be sad if you can not continue or its not free anymore I will enjoy what you have given us. So thank you and continue with your studies and such I have you back!
I'm glad to say that i haven' given up on it. From how you've talked about it before it always seemed like you really wanted to finish it. I understand how life can get in the way of something like this so I'm willing to wait as long as necessary! It's good to hear from you and I'm glad you're continuing it! I do really enjoy this comic.
yay. I'm willing to wait for it however long it takes. I'm glad your not going to leave us hanging by posting every now and then. this way you can work on it when you can and not feel bad about making us wait at key parts of the comic. i love this comic & I'm so glad ur not discontinuing it. thanks for keeping us posted.
Oddly enough, I was thinking about this all day today. Glad to see you're still going on with it! :D
Also sorry that a lot of people have given you shit for it. :/ You've made it clear plenty of times that college is more important, and yet… *sigh* Some people can be really insensitive.
When the time comes for this to be uploaded in its entirety, I'll still be here. Best of luck, and don't stress out! <3
YES!!! I knew you were alive! Well... It was my secret hope anyway... This is my favorite comic and I can't wait to see it! I understand all the time constraints and such so I will wait patiently for you to bring the rest! And thank you for not taking the easy way out and abandoning all of us! <3
I know how you feel. My comic was on hiatus for TWO YEARS!! But I never once felt that my comic was dead or that I would never finish it. It was just a very unexpected break that happened. But eventually I was able to return and am working on it again. :) Of course, I hope to see more of this comic. I've had a lot of fun reading it!
As a comic writer/artist, I understand. I'll wait for this comic's finish, and, dude, your studies/life is very important. Live, and whatever happens happens. Thank you for taking the time you have on all your efforts for this glorious cominc, frand.
Well crap, people actually wrote that stupid shit? Sorry to here about that man. I've been your fan for a while and am happy to wait for as long as you need. Lord know I take forever to update my own stuff.
Glad to hear from you! I've never lost hope that you would come back to this. I love the story and your amazing art! I for one will be patiently waiting for you to update.
Good luck with school and everything!
I'm sorry that happened to you, dear. That really stinks, when people try to speak for you...no worries, I've never lost faith, and I know many others haven't. You said you will continue this comic no matter what, and I believe you. So I'll wait another year, if I have to. Thanks for taking the time to do this for your readers. <3
Ahhh it's marvelous to read that you'll continue this comic ^_^ t's the first one I've found here and I always enjoyed reading it ! :D People who don't understend how hard is it to draw a comic can go fuck themselves. Once again, glad you're with us! :D
I am very happy to hear from you ^^ But deep inside my heart, i always knew that this comic wasn't abandoned. I wrote to you once to hear. And you told me it would be done. I believed you all along, and i still do today ^^ i hope the best for you! And please do not stress yourself too much :)
I totally understand. I did not unfollow this comic because you did not state yourself that you have lost interest or were stopping the comic! ^_^ I am happy to hear from you and I am happy to hear that you plan to continue. I look forward to seeing where this story leads and I also look forward to being with you as it does so. :D
May we take this journey together!
Also- I am a college student so I totally understand how things just..pile up.
Dear author of this comic.
Thank you so much for writing this in the first place, it is truly genius and i love it a lot. Thank you again for keeping all of us posted on the developments of the comic. And lastly thank you for putting up with our angst and desire for more, You're one of the best ever.
I'm so glad to hear this comic isn't going to be canceled and don't pay attention to what those people were saying you just keep doing what your doing and take as long as you need to update even if it takes another year or so
Rock on. I know exactly how it is. I have a few fanfics that I've left hanging for a looooong time *cough*years*cough*, but not because I abandoned them, or discontinued them. But because I can't find anytime to sit down and hash out the next pages. So don't worry, I get itand II'm patient.
I understand. Don't worry, your webcomic is great, you're an author who know how to do a great story. I'm a fan, I'll be forever. Sorry if my english is strange, i'm french :)
Take care and good luck for your studies !
Honestly I wasn't expecting it to be updated again but I didn't care because I really enjoyed what was already here. I've been following it for .... I don't know how long so seeing this I got pretty excited XD Just the possibility of this story being finished is awesome, now knowing it will be finished at some point is even more awesome.
Anyway, good luck with college and life in general! :D
I actually had a very strong feeling that I shouldn't give up on this comic the entire time, weird enough. So maybe it takes a year, maybe it takes two. People have had longer hiatuses than that before. This shit takes time, after all, and anyone being rude to you about it, doesn't understand how comic making works and doesn't really deserve a comic as amazing as this one is! Because wow, it really is. And I get really excited thinking about seeing this completed, actually, because I can only imagine the growth you've had as an artist during the time you've been away! >w<
We can wait! Take all the time you need, and thank you so very much for sharing this lovely story with us! <3
To be honest... I kinda forgot about this comic ^^; I'M SORRY DON'T HATE ME Y^Y
But it is really good to hear from you again ^^ I loved the story and I'm really glad to hear that you are planning on finishing it! If it will take forever I don't care! I will continue to keep you in my favorite list and I will wait for the day of your return ^^ ... or forget about it again like the dumb slut I am and be really happy to see the update when it's finished ^^
Also, long story is good story!
I always had high hopes for this comic and never gaved up, I'm very happy that you had the effort to explain to us, readers, whats happenning. But the small percentage of us who encourage you to keep on working hard and do what you need to do will be here still encouraging and hopeful to see the next page even if it takes along time, we truely love this comic and we wont easly gaven up on it.
I understand how hard it is to keep comics running, even if this one was on a 2 year hiatus, it never once occured to me that this will never be continued because I see your passion, there is passion in this comic and all of your other works from DA, and you have inspired me to have motivation in comic making.
Even in those 2 years I've read all what there was about this comic, because it's wonderful, it's inspiring, and I know there will be a day where it will be continued, and when that happends, then bombs of happiness will get loose!!
Remember that you are a wonderful person, and you deserve a lot of love for this great comic you made! And I am excited already to wait another year or two to see it finnished!! KEEP IT UP! RAAH!!
i totally understan ur reason for this big hiatus , and i want u to know that thanks to this comic i get now smackjeeves page
i really glad to hear that ur goin' to continue this comic
i'll wait for see the end of this comic
Hey, I was just thinking about this comic earlier!
Heh, I made a Smackjeeves profile way back when JUST so I could favorite and keep up with this comic. It's still one of my favorites, and I'm planning to hang around to see it through to the end. :) Take all the time you need. We'll still be here!
OMG, this is the best way of saying it! I understand completely, making a comic by yourself is really hard! I completely understand all the feels is involved in making one too! I will wait for as long as it takes! Can't wait!
I'm so happy to hear that you're going to continue! Never give up...and please don't stress to much over this :) You're an amazing artist and I appreciate your work and all your efforts. You really are the best!
I'm glad to hear you're doing alright and giving life your all. I showed some friends this comic and theyed often ask me what happened! But now I can say you're doing well and haven't given up. Take your time and don't stress, thank you for informing us :>
I really appreciate you taking the time to put up this post! Also, I'm glad you're not discontinuing the comic, and look forward to reading again when you post once more! Keep up the good work!! I love this comic, and will never delete it from my faves, no matter how long it takes before you post!! xoxoxoxo
I'm so happy it isn't discontinued ^^ Take your time, it's your right! (I know how heavily time-consuming college is, and I'm sure others will understand it as well c: )
I'm looking forward to seeing the result in the end. Have a nice day!
I refused to take this out of my favorites.. I thought maybe if I kept it there it would update.. And man am I glad I kept it there. This has potential to be among like top 5 webcomics for me :3 Goodluck with studies and finishing the comic <3 Keep up the amazing work <3
This has made me so happy! (It's so much easier to wait when you know one day the wait will be over) I started reading this--gosh--years ago? Only a few pages were up when I first started reading. A little more waiting is well worth it for such an awesome story! Take all the time you need. Thanks so much! xoxoxox
No worries. I know what it is like when things get too hecktic to do any art let alone free stuff. Love your comic even unfinished but look forwards to a continuation if there is one in the future. Best of luck with all your stuff.
we love you just the way you are! and the little mermaid is one of my fav disney movies so to find an adorable yaoi version like this was amazing. i am always patient when good honest work is involved. always rooting for the devotion of heart.
This is wonderful news. It's nice to know what's happening, and I do understand the issues with real life getting in the way It's truly marvellous to know I'll one day be reading the rest of this wonderful comic. Best of luck with your studies and your comic. I look forward to what the future holds. :)
Life happens and there's no reason to apologize. Just ignore the rude people out there and concentrate on your loyal fans who are encouraging you to do what you do. I love this comic and will always reread it and wait patiently, no matter how long it takes, to update.
Just take your time, enjoy life, and create the comic as quickly or slowly as you want.
I just happened to check this comic out of the blue, and I am glad to see this message. Mostly because my main concern when an artist goes dark like that is "Are they ok?" So here are some words of encouragement, and I hope they help.
I'm glad to hear you haven't given up on something you love. However, I'm proud that you have your priorities. It's been so long since I myself have had time to work on art that, when I do, I have no idea where to start. I don't think I could commit to such a big project, and I really admire that you ARE committed. It's clear that you must be passionate to work so long and diligently on this.
I look forward to watching your improvement as much as I look forward to the story. So keep up the great work! And best of luck with your studies! ^_^
I've been following this comic since I was 15 years old. I'm 20 now, and it still makes me happy. I come back to it every few months hoping for a couple pages... I'm stoked you posted that you'll finish it, and that you won't give up. Al keep coming back eagerly anticipating the rest of it. GANBATTE! And thank you for making an awesome, colorful, extremely detailed comic. Take whatever time you need to enjoy finishing it instead of feeling forced or tired of it. We will try to wait patiently for it's return. ^_^ <3 <3 <3
I've waited for something far longer than the ammount of time his haiatus, and I'm still waiting for that thing. I'll continue to patiently wait for this comic as well. Please, take your time, and but as much love and care into it as you feel like you can.
I found out about this web comic in December of last year, and I would like to say that I'm glad I got to read the amount I did. True, it may not be finished, but I don't care, so long as there's something to read and enjoy, I'm happy. Also, I personally believe that this is better than the movie it's based off of. I just love the chemistry between Eric and Ariel, it just seems so believable, so real. I thoroughly enjoyed this comic, and I'm glad that you've put so much time and effort into something that you aren't even being paid to do, and I wouldn't have minded whether or not this comic was actually canceled because if it was, T would just be happy with what I've already been given. I'm also glad that this comic hasn't totally consumed your personal life, take your time on this, I certainly don't mind. Lastly, don't fret over those that have given up on this comic, it's their fault for not having enough faith in you.
Keep up the good work, and I look forward to the next update.
It's good to hear that you'll continue this webcomic. Good to hear you still love your creature.
That said, you have all the right to proceed at your own pace, but at the very least you had to tell us that you would be on a long hiatus: is true that people were unkind to you, but you were no more delicate with them.
Thank you for telling us :D
I'm always checking the comic if you have updated, I havent gave up on it. Its to good to gave up on it really hehehehe. I understand things in life happen and Im glad that you are back. I will be excitedly waiting for the updates coming, again thank you and welcome back~
I'm sorry all this happened to you! I kind of took a hiatus of my own from reading many web comics and cut it down to just , like, 5 big names in web comics. but i want to go back to reading all the friggin hundreds i used to read. yours was always pretty cute! I hope all the best for you, even if you go on to work on different projects or change the art style or what ever, ect! good luck!
That's okay and completely logical that you were just trying to sketch it all out before posting more pages. Besides, unlike those who have done so in your notice or given up, I still wait happily for your story since I'm wanting to read more of it and highly enjoy reading your version of this story. So I'm here to stay as long as the story doesn't get dismissed! :D
Normaly I didn't post comments. But your webcomic is very good - I love the idea of a male 'Arielle' - and I'm so glad to hear, that you don't dump it.
I'm looking forward to seeing a new site again. <3
i only found this comic yesterday and its just fantastic
i really love how you basically copied over little mermaid story but in a very new and unique way and it doesnt even feel like it has actually been based off little mermaid
the art is gorgeous and like wow some parts just hilarious and cute and emotion overload <3
i am really glad to hear that you will continue this as its just too awesome not to be continued
if it takes you a year ill be there to read it after a year all over again
two years? ill still be there to read it because this is a masterpiece!
I'm so glad to hear that the comic will reach its eventual fulfillment :D I think that when a comic goes on a super long hiatus the readers are actually concerned whether something has happened to the artist! It's always so good to have you keep us up to date, some just give up on the comic without letting the readers know. I look forward to the finished product, whenever that is completed :) Thank you for the wonderful art that you produce <3
I, personally, love this comic and I will wait as long as it takes for it to be updated. I don't know how other people feel about it, but I feel it's AWESOME to know we're not going to find it leaving off on another cliffhanger like: why is Ariel nervous? If Eric accepts the proposal, how will Sebastian explain it to the king? Will Ursule find his one and only? I can't wait! :)
I just found it today and was totally hooked by the plot and the comedy. I'm not aware of what kind of comments some people sent you but, at least from my part (and i'm very sure that it is something a lot of your readers share) there's nothing else to say about this comic that it is great. You made me laugh and scratch myself (something that I only do when I'm really excited and happy... no, no, I'm not insane or a cat, I just am... emotional ^^). Don't listen to anything negative, but pay attention to anything constructive, and get feedback from all the positive! Blessings and keep your work please, cause is really good.
PD: Im from Perú, so sory for any grammar mistake!
I completely understand why it's taken so long to update your web-comic. It's good to be able to interact with other people, like friends and family. I will continue to wait for it to be finished so that I may see how the rest of the story unfolds. I'm just sadden how others can type up rude comments and leave them.
It's great to hear that you're still finishing this comic! It's so good and you are so talented. It's been amazing seeing how much your art skills and style have developed from the first page to the most recent one. Don't feel pressured to finish them quickly though, take your time and don't stress out about it. No matter how long it takes, it'll be worth the wait for us!
p.s. just out of curiosity, do you think you are going to continue with the plans you'd made to do a red riding hood/cinderella comic after this? It'd be wonderful and I'd love it if you did, but I wouldn't want it to be more added pressure on you with college and work and everything.
w.o.W!! the whole thing from first page to last was just amazing! as in I'm speechless! Flabbergasted! Mind-blowing! I LOVE it!!! that was so so so so so so so so sos os so so so COOOL! Everything!
And i know how hard it is to dedicate yourself to something, especially because i tried writing comics and fanfics before ( only 1 22-chapter fanfic managed end, the rest either were dropped or didn't see the light to begin with) Thus i truly compliment you for your presistance! thank you so much for such an amazing read, and looking forward for more!
I'm going through the same thing more or less (sans the people posting that I gave up). I haven't been able to update for almost 2 years because of an accident involving my wrist. Crap happens, and that's not your fault (I keep trying to remind myself that) just take your time and do what you need to in order to make yourself happy.
Best of luck to ya and I'll keep popping my head in here when I see a new page up.
Thank you for writing that I was wondering when I'd ever get to continu reading your comic. Oh and your comic is briliant I apsalootly love it. I Started reading your comic over a year ago and fell in love with it. I have been recently been writing doujins and a book so I under stand that sometimes you take brakes and some breaks last longer than you'd like. But anyways i can't wait to see what you have instore for your readers. XD
Oh man! I am soooo happy! i nearly cried qwq as long as you finish this story, you may take time as much as you want! i am nor gonna complain if ou need another 2 years, if im going to get to read it in 2 years fine i'll be more than happy! i love youuu xD keep up the good work, i'll be chearing for you! bye bee ~
i honestly thought that the comic will not update but, im happy that you did not abandoned it thank you for your hard work....and sorry for some folks that...said those mean and rude/harsh things i know its hard to update...your just a one people person ..... so we could wait for the comic....thanks for the hard work! :3
I like people like you who don't give up, i enjoyed this comic very much, i don't see why people hate gay relationships are in everyday life, and the artwork is FANTASTIC and the story line is very interesting, take your time, and i wish you the best of luck.
I was so worryed those were true, thank you for telling us because I really love this story and was super sad when they said stuff like that but I still checked in normally just in case, now I'm glad I did, thank you and good luck on the story, I look forward to it o.ob
You could still spend 5 minutes to communicate that...oh I don't know TWO YEARS ago?! I mean come on trying to make peopel feel bad for saying you gave up when no word from you after 2 years but we shouldn't be mad because its free? FUCK YOu. So many people offered money to buy the comic to give you incentive to draw it but you could of said no I'll keep it free but I have to do it in a few years or yes I can do that. Quit bitching and moaning like we're making you suffer. Piss ass.
I just started reading this comic today but I can say I have fallen in love with the story and your dedacation to the story. Even if I have to wait for a long long time I will still be egerly awaiting the next page! Keep up the good work!
It's kinda sad that you had that comment. I'm sorry about that. First of all I really really do love your story. You made it seem like the original tale. I loved it. And I kept wishing to know what's going to happen next. And don't give up. No matter what you do I'll support you. I can't wait to see what you'll update next. I wish you best of lucks.
Hello, i'm very sorry you got some horrible comments it's completely uncalled for, as an Illustration student I feel your pain in drawing and perfecting pages it takes me days for a single page and that's my full time occupation. XD I'm glad to hear you're keeping it up, but don't feel pressured or anything, it's your baby and your spare time and care that goes in to this so screw anybody that complains take as much time as you need. You'll probably pick up tons of new readers when you finish the rest anyway and i'll happily wait :)
I just started, and finished, reading this comic today. It's very good. Not amateur at all. I think it's quite strange when good artists think like that because you all have unique art styles :) Keep up the good work!
I'm confused about some details that I'm hoping you could explain, for example at first Ariel saw Eric's brother propose in the bakery and it looked like a tried the same with a doughnut but then later he asks for his mothers ring proving that humans and mermaids are at least the same in that regard by proposing with a ring so why was he confused?
Another question is how do the mermaids wear rings you draw them with webbed fingers?
The last question is after Ariel proposes at dinner why does no one question where he got the ring, he washed up on shore naked, he didn't have it with him and he had to money to buy it so where did it come from?
Important questions you should think about.
Well, I just read this all now and just now noticed that this letter is the most recent submission of yours. And I just have to say, don't give up now. We all believe in you ;u;
I was just browsing deviantART when I discovered a link to this comic. I clicked the link, and right from the first five pages I was captivated. I love fairytale makeovers like this, and you're just one of the few who I believe were successful in retelling the story as you did. It's disappointing that some of your so-called "followers" decided to accuse you like that--I know the situation all too well...A lot of other comic artists I'm following are being accused similarly, and it's all because they don't understand what the artist is going through.
Don't worry about those guys. Just remember the ones who *do* understand you, and just know we're all grateful for you putting so much effort and care into every page you draw for us <3 You have us as supporters, so keep striding through life knowing we're all here for you ;u; Good luck in concluding your enchanting version of this story.
(I'm sorry for writing such a long comment, sometimes I get carried away. But I just felt this was necessary, so yeeeeah, just know that you have another supporter who's got your back. Take care of yourself ^ ^)
I'm sorry from the people who have been commented rude things to your comic. But I simply just love this comic, and I'm not giving up on waiting. So no worries, I've add this to my favorites, and I'll keep there too. But well, I'll wait for the continue :3
Omg, I found this comic yesterday, and I was having a horrible day. So I started to read, and, omg, I became so happy, smiling like a chid, with my eyes full of tears. This is so cute, so lovely, so Kind... I really love it so much.
Please continue this, I really need to view the final. I'm so glad to have found this. So happy.
Good luck with your studies, and I hope you'll soon bring more off this fantastic work.
Thank you so much for telling us how things were. But, and I think I speak for most of us smackjeeves fans of yours, it would be wonderful if we could have them here. However, just maybe post a notice here when you've completed everything that you have completed everything with a link to it? We would all be very grateful for that and we are already all grateful for you not discontinuing this story as most of us love it. It is we'll draw and well wrote and always makes me smile <3 thank you.
Don't worry about a thing, no matter what I WILL wait for this comic to be finished. That's because it's so good and I absolutely love it. So take your time and do the best you can we will wait. I know we will. So keep your head high and your chin up! Cause' YOU CAN DO IT. We believe in you. - Alice
I am personally responsible for the comment spoken above against the artist. It's easy to give false hope and say yeah I'll finish it eventually keep checking back for the next ten years but one day I'll finish it hahahaha! Bull shit. You're not going to finish it but you won't admit it. You like the attention and you're a dill weed for it. You can bitch and moan about it being free and that you're not obligated to finish it but you've wasted a lot of peoples time, not just your own. THIS COMIC WILL NEVER BE COMPLETED.
I, personally, love this webcomic and all it's intertwining plot lines. You are very talented and, clearly, have a good comprehension of what's truly important in life. Such as, schooling and time with real people. 'Brava', to all your hard work, and a hardy, 'Keep it up!', to you yourself :) As a FanFiction writer, I understand the need to balance your love for your characters and your audience as well as your life and your ambition. Please, finish this comic in your own time ^.^ I look forward to returning to it one day and seeing the finished product of all your hard work.
I completely understand and look forward to your return! I hope your studies have been going well! You're comic is amazing and I have enjoyed it thus far and look forward to more when you are ready :) This story is worth waiting for!
I know exactly how you feel with this! I never post my fanfics/comics because I'm afraid I stop writing/drawing and leave people who like my stories waiting.
But wow, this story is REALLY good! I'll keep this link to refresh the page sometimes, because I really want to continue reading. Hope you can finish soon!<3
I've been waiting patiently for an update that has yet appeared. I simply ask if you'll be posting the following pages soon to keep my hopes up. I really like your work and I wish you could keep up with it since I believe everything must have a clousure. I am saying this yet I am not pressuring you to do anything, this are my most sincere words and I hope to see some of your work soon.
- The Moonless Midnight of the Mind
Hey! I stumbled upon your comic a few hours ago and couldn't help but get sucked in, I truly love your take on the Disney classic of The Little Mermaid uvu. I also noticed your improvement throughout the comic, it's very noticeable and the growth is amazing. I know I'm pretty late in discovering this only now, almost 11 months after the latest update. But I just wanted to drop this in, tell you I love your work! You've successfully inspired me to try and start my own comic!
Every now and then I find myself rereading your story to the point that I have read it over 10 times. That is just how much I love it. I will continue to wait for the ending of this story until you finish it. I just wanted to remind you that there are fans that still support you and that we will patiently wait for the ending of your story for as long as it takes.
I really want to know when this is going to be completed. This might sound overly dramatic,but, until the I see the entire ending,I feel like I'm going to cry and die at the same time!!! Sorry i didn't realize I wrote two. Disregard whichever one you want.
It's been over a year since the notice was posted, I just found this comic and fell in love completely. I hope someday it really is finalized, I will keep an eye on going forward. Good job! (Sorry if I wrote something wrong, English isn't my first language.)
Hello every one out here
Am Mrs Morgana want to share a testimony of my life to every one. I was married to my husband james Mark, I love him so much we have been married for 5 years now with two kids. when he went for a vacation to France he meant a lady ;, he told me that he is no longer interested in the marriage any more and said we should go for divorce. I was so confused and seeking for help, I don't know what to do until I met my friend miss Edwina who told who gave me the solution to my problem. she told me not to worry about it that she had a similar problem earlier and introduce me to a man called Dr dodo who cast a spell on her ex and bring him back to her after 24hrs.I contacted him to help me bring back my husband and he ask me not to worry about it that the gods of his fore-fathers will fight for me. He told me by 24hrs he will re-unite me and my husband together. After two day my husband called and told me he is coming back to sought out things with me, I was surprise when I saw him and he started crying for forgiveness. Right now I am the happiest woman on earth for what this great spell caster did for me and my husband, his contact is:Dr dodo. He is the best spell caster on the internet so far email:firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you once again father, I will continue to share your good work as long as I live and I will advice everyone in similar situation to try and see. thanks email@example.com
Hello every body....
My name is Conrad Eve, my family and i live together live in USA. It was after seven years i got to discover that my Husband was unfaithful to me. I didn't know what was going on at first but as he got deep in the affair with his new lover, i felt that our marriage was on the rocks. I notice that he no longer light up when i touch him or kiss him in his neck and his chest cos he really liked it when i did that, he also usually get naked in front of me but when he started seeing that woman he stopped it. I remember asking him if i have done anything that makes him feel irritated when i am around him then he gives silly excuses that he has been feeling stressed up and that he need space for a while. I know when you are been asked for space its usually because there is something fishy going on. I hired a private investigator to help find out what was going on. And in a week time he brought me prove that my Husband that i have lived with for seven straight year is cheating on me with his high school lover. I had picture of him walking out a of a restaurant with her and many other photo of them kissing in public like he will never be caught by someone that knows he is my Husband. I asked myself, even when we had a daughter together he could do this to me. That same night i showed him the pictures that i got from my private investigator. He didn't look at it before saying, that he is seeing someone and he know that i just found out about it. Then he said that he is in love with her. At that moment, i didn't know if to kill myself or to kill him but the button line is that if i was going to kill anyone it was going to be me because i was so much in love with him to even think of thinking to hurt him. As time goes on he asked for a divorce and got it and i got custody of our daughter and i weep everyday seeing my daughter with out being around her daddy. I just couldn't get my mind off my Husband and all i could think about was getting him back and live as every family should. For a year i tried all i could to get him back with the help of my seven year old daughter. Even at that all effect was in vain, i used the help of his friend but turned out all bad. I know most people don't believe in spell casting but believe me this was my last option and the result i most say was impressive. And i know it difficult to believe but A SPELL CASTER Dr dodo really made my life much better because he gave me my family back. He didn't ask me to pay for what he did for me all i was to do, was to provide the materials for the spell and i should believe that he had the power to help me. Like he said, he was going to do something that will make him reset his love and affection for me just as it has always been. My Husband told me he woke up and realized that he should have never left me that i am all he needs.To make thing clear, his life with his high school lover was great before Dr dodo cast the spell, they had no disagreement on anything. My Husband said it himself that why he broke up with her is something he can not explain just that he woke up on the same bed with her after a very romantic night saying he is breaking up with her for no reason at all. Only Dr dodo can do such a thing, contact him to solve your problem with his email firstname.lastname@example.org
I was so shocked when I clicked next and was greeted with a message instead of story. I almost had a heart attack. But after reading through it I thought to myself, "here you find this amazing webcomic with kickass art and fantastic plot. let's stick with it" I may have just found your comic today but from here on out I'll be checking back cause I'm super excited to see how it'll end. Make sure to study hard. I wish you the best,
Hi, thank you so much for not stopping doing this! I just found this comic today and I've read all you've put on here and I absolutely love it. You say you probably wouldn't post them on here, so if you could would you tell me where you plan on uploading the rest of it? Thank you so much:)
Awwh, I was hoping that when I check in again it would have at least another page up, but I understand and I dont wanna be demanding over something thats free (totaly awesome, but free) and "amateur quailty" my ass, unless you're trying to make this some grand graphic novel then this comic is pretty high quality, especially for the high page numbers. if it were stick figures that'd be one thing, heck I'd still read it. the story keeps me reading and the adorable art (<3Scuttle x Sebastian<3) sets the mood further into place. its just so, gah! dont call it amateur! >~< now im gonna forget about it for another year or so and rereread it start to finish. so finish it Dx I was see how the rest of it turns out ya jerk, gettin me hooked on your amazing project and then taking long hiatuses (now to check out the other stories again <3)
I've stuck with your comic since 2009 when my best friend and I started reading it together. Whenever I think about it, I check back for updates. In the time since you started the comic, I've gone from middle school to college, and I understand how hard it is to find time for anything during the school year between work, studies and social interaction. Just know that I've been invested in it for this long and I seriously Can't. Wait. for the next update. Just be your lovely self; you'll always have at least one fan here, in my little corner of the world, excited to see what you come out with next!
I'll admit, I was never expecting this to update, really glad I kept that bookmark now. I know it'll be a while, but y'know, I'm okay with that. I really wanna see how this story goes, so I guess it's worth the wait.
I love your comic and just wanted to say that I can't wait for the next update! I love your characters and story line. I love your ambission for your studies first and comic second. And also just wanted to let you know I'll support you all the way! :D
I know exactly how you feel and I'm just happy to hear that your still going to continue the comic ^^
It's really good and I looks forward to see you update it again but PLEASE take YOUR time doing it! Doing comics like this is stressful I know ^^ which is why I want and need you to do all this in your own time ^^
I tots understand. I apparently have a story up on fanfiction.net that gets updated probably once or twice a year, and everytime that I do, its only because the support(reviews/comments on the story) has been building up. Everytime you get an email notification of people saying how they love your work and want to see more, its just like a boost of motivation!
And heres my little piece of that for you. Apparently I just discovered this comic today and have spent the past several hours reading it. Obvoously, I fell in love immediately. My first love here were the character designs and it grew with everytime Ariel is clingy/affectionate with Eric like that is so adorbsssss <3
I also fell in love with Ursule and the twins at the part where Ursule had a flasback on how he met the twins.
So anyway. I'll be checking in again hoping to see updates in a year from now. Mean time, keep up the awesome work. Can't wait to see this finished.
-insert kissy emoji with small heart here_
WHINNNEEEE I had really gotten into it and actually cried at some parts. I love the ships but I like the eels and the octopus the best. I mean mermaid and octopus would look nice but nah.. SO MANY SHIPS I have. Haha. And sorry I'm bad with names. I can't wait to read more. I'm so excited.
D: < Don't let anybody to tell mean comments about your own story, :3 after all it takes time and effort to draw all that etc. It doesn't matter even if it takes 10 years to finnish what you doing. The story is really amazing and i really do hope everything good for you ^^
I have just started reading this comic yesterday and I already love it. It's very easy to get sucked into the story in my opinion and I have friends who do stuff like this so I understand how it can take time to get things done. And I'm sorry about the people who are rude in their comments because as you said it is free, therefore I feel that people should not make rude comments because you are posting for your own joy and now for your viewers as you have said but that's just my opinion and may or may not be shared by others. But again I absolutely love your comic <3
I love you! Thanks for the notice and //please// do continue updates like this to inform us about your comic. It makes me all [asdfghjkl] inside and motivates me to check back every once in a while and I really love the reassurance. I am also very inspired by your work because I've been wanting to do something like this for quite some time. I can't wait for more updates!! [I'm already screaming in anticipation.]
I love this comic so very much. Your animation improves more and mare through out it and there is great character development. I especially love that it's so unique, it's not like every make Ariel and Eric story/comic. You truly make it into your own story and I love that. I hope that things are going well in your life and that you will eventually have enough time to finish this comic. C=
I rly love your comic... I love Ariel and Eric T=T Its much better than original! I look forward to the next pages. I can pay! xD All for this genius. I can not describe my reaction when I saw this post. I understand you but... Im sad 2 >__< Ok! I hope. I am waiting. Good luck! .__.
You don't understand the emotion I felt seeing how this was last updated a year ago...usually that means for a fan fiction writing account, they quit. I am disappointed and heart broken. If you would finish this I would be happy, but for now I have to walk away after reading this for an hour and never knowing what happens.....thank you.
Ok my last post was incredibly rude, I MISS you and I saw you said it could take an extra year, yes this is long but I understand you have to draw and create the comics. I hope all is going well and please remember all the fans who have fallen in LOVE with your work just like I did.
this is the best 'amature' comic ive ever read! like, better than a fair few manga ive read in general! it statred off kind of cracky with some good humour and now its developed and gotten seriouse, which i love! We understand u need to take your time and thankyou for not giving up on us! I hope you can update before the end of 2016, any longer and I may die. Just a heads up. If I'm left to ursuleXsam-sam twins deprived I may die! ;A; we wouldn't want that :P GOOD ON YOU AUTHOR FOR HAVING SUCH A BEAUTIFUL BABY AND MAKING TGE LITTLE MIRMAID OKAY TO WATCH (cause your so busy thinking of yaoi it doesnt matter whats really happening!!!) i heartily await your update and send all my love to such a dedicated, creative and talented artist/writer! >3<~<3
Been reading this since...sometime years ago. I can't recall. I have great hope that someday you'll have the inspiration (and time O_O) to finish it, but even if you don't...that's okay. Interests wax and wane, there's nothing wrong with that. I'm just happy to have had this much of your art and storytelling in my life. Thank you.
Seeing this makes a lot of readers who follow you probably relieved, I hope you are okay and actually hiatus aren't bad >.< but I see where you come from! can't wait to see the next chapter and your hard work flowing overwhelmingly onto me
It's been over a year since you posted the hiatus. I've been waiting patiently but all I want is to read your wonderful story. I understand your reasoning but I wouldn't mind if you didn't finish it yet.
I read your comic 5 months ago and I loved it, please, continue it. Your tale is so perfect, so cute, so beautiful, one of the best comics I have ever read... You are a great writer and drawer! (Please continue)
I can't take it anymore!!!! (Cries forever over lack of yaou); i miss these comics! How come it has been three years already!?!?!?? Please don't tell me you not quitting was a lie! Please!! Don't be that person who leaves people hanging and disappointed!
I'm glad you haven't discontinued this, it's really adorable, though I just started it last night.
I hope to see more from you, and since it's been two years since an update I can't wait to see how your art style has grown!
Hope you're in good health. ヾ( ´｡ •x• ｡` )ﾉ”
That the author and artist put was originally made by me. Sinsomniac. It may of been rude but it has now been over two years. I can safely say to you all I TOLD YOU SO!
I can tell when a project is at its end I've always been good at that. Nevertheless to give him a fighting chance to defend the claim I diligently checked DeviantArt for the completion and progress. Nothing so again I say....
ATTENTION FOLLOWERS OF THIS COMIC. IT HAS BEEN SEVER SEVERAL YEARS SINCE THE START OF THIS COMIC. MUCH LIKE THE PATHETIC END TO TEAHOUSECOMIC... THIS COMIC IS ALSO AT ITS END!!! THE ARTIST SIMPLY DOESNT HAVE THE TIME AND PATIENCE OR FUNDS NEEDED TO WARRANT COMPLETING IT. THANK YOU FOR YOUR DEVOTION OVER THE PAST YEARS. BUT ITS TIME TO MOVE ON.
Insomniac, FUCK YOU. You have no right to say such things about the author. Are you writing this? No. Do you know what's going on in their life? No. So BACK OFF
By the way, Autho. I MISS YOU WANT WANT YOU BACK. Still waiting! <3
if the author sees this comment then I want you to reply are you going to contue or leave it like this
and to the people who are reading this I just want to know befor I git my hopes up for this comic
i was reading this and tearing up at how it was going and i am so glad to know you are continuing and I'm so.... excited to see how ursule and the eels turn out, and how ariel and eric turn out, and if scuttle and sebastian become a couple and I'm blushing so bad as i read this, I'm super invested and, feel like i know these characters like my friends.... thank you for what you have allowed me to read and for what i will be able to read when it is finished
im so excited XD
We all get impatient. Don't worry about taking a while to finish a comic. I've seen some that take 3 years! And the reasons are always stuff that everyone has to deal with. Sometimes its college. Sometimes finances. Sometimes work. Just know that your artwork is great, and I've seen it improve vastly over the course of this webcomic. Regardless of when this one is done, I hope that your future art endeavors go well in accordance with all the effort you clearly put into it.
I'll be adding this to my favorites so that I can be completely confused and elated when it suddenly jumps to the front of my list of updated comics one day. XD
Hope you are doing well! The Little Mermaid is one of my favorite fairytales of all time, and I love how you've retold it so far. And as you have promised to finish it, I'm excited to see how you round out the story. I find myself torn between wanting the happy ending and wanting to bawl my eyes out as it ends more like the original fairytale. (Who am I kidding; I want lovey-dovey because they're so damn cute!)
Anyway, I love your art style, and the dynamics between the characters, and I'm excited to see the conclusion. Again, I hope you are well, and I hope that life is treating you well. Good luck in your endeavors!
Its been over 2 years since you last updated and I still remember when I first found this comic. You had just started off and I remember waiting to see when you would update and loving every minute of it. I wanted to remind you that we are still her waiting for you to post the rest of the comic. I personally read through your comic every few months just b/c I love it that much. Well keep drawing and we will all still be here waiting for you. even if it takes you another 2 years I will still wait for the rest of this comic.
- I just realized I have a post from each year on this page lol.
Hello. Two long years had been passed... You sure this comic isn't dead? Please, finish it! Let it have an end, for God's sake! If you loved this creature of yours you should at the very least give it a proper end!!
Hello! I haven't come to complain, but it's been two years my friend and you haven't updated, I've always checked, but are you sure this is not dead? I would have loved for you to continue, but were just cliff hanging now.
I just finished binge reading this for the first time and I have to say it's absolutely amazing!! The characters are wonderful and the story is addicting. I hope you finish it soon, but I don't mind waiting ðŸ’•
You go I started reading this like 4 hours ago but it's already caught me hook line and sinker (hehehehehe) it's been 2 years since the last page but I'm here to say if you have any pages at all even if there is another hiatus we will all be glad just to have them love you!!!!!
I read this some time ago, a year maybe. I just reread it and its still just as amazing as it was to read back then. I love the art style and the characters! Thank you for keeping this up, I enjoyed reading it once again ^^

please excuse my bad english.
I have a high rate of comprension but I am vary poor skilled in english writing.
However, some weeks ego I read your work for the first time. I loved it. And I thought of I would shere the comic with my user. I have a scan manga site. This is the address: http://eternalyaoilove.altervista.org/. If you perimit it I would translate your comic end share that in my site.
i check this webcomic every now and then every few months or when i remember and it's almost been 3 yrs but you know i still keep hoping it updates :O since u promise imma keep waiting i just wanted you to know im still cheering you on! (gah i had no idea how to word this) anyway thank you for this comic :3 i like rereading it for fun since im still fascinated even until now where u went with this story, thank you
Just stopping in to let you know we're still here. This beautiful comic will never be forgotten by the fans. I still love it and you! Can't wait until it's finished, I will wait gratefully and patiently. Best of luck!
There are still plenty of fans that love your comic. It has been years, but we hope you are doing well. Even if it's not a post of a new page, we would love to hear an update on how things are going with you. :)
I'm very confused in why this manga is discontinued even though it says it's not, you promised that you will continue updating this manga the next year, but you haven't,something tells me you call quits, It's 2017 and I can't wait any longer, I was so into this manga while reading it, the characters, the story, the atmosphere, the yaoi, I was so in love with it all and I'm sure a lot of people whom read this manga would agree, I'd love to see the rest even if it's the last chapter, I just want to know what will happen next, you can't just end it on a cliffhanger and expect us to hang on to it forever, please please PLEASE upload the rest of this manga PLEASE I BEG YOU I WOULD LITERALLY PAY TO READ MORE OF THIS SO PLEEEEEEEEEEEZ
Hey! It's been a year since I last commented and I haven't seen any updates anywhere do you think you could tell us how things are going? We all miss you and your characters and even just a three word note (I'm not dead per say) would be greatly appreciated! We love you!
OMG This has been amazing! Ah, I was so sad to be unable to finish it, but real life happiness comes first. I'll keep this saved in my 'unfinished' folder of my bookmarks with the hope that I'll come back, years later, and find it finished. <3
I just got started on this and I already love it so much. Im sad that it will take another year but for a comic this good Ill find my patience. Ill be there when you finally finish and I cant wait to see how it ends. And because I dont think you get enough gratitude Id like to say thanks for allowing us to veiw this for free and keep up the good work because your an amazing artist.
It's understandable to want to finish school and be social with whom you wish to spend your time with. I also understand any emotional purposes you may have to cause you any setbacks. I would just like to inform you on how well your comic is. Not just in its art style but also in its grammical structure and order. The storyline is a fantastic start and the minor silly parts make it even more enjoyable. I've read this nonstop until the point to where I read your note. I'd love to see it finished, on your own time of course. You've done an excellent job and I hope you're doing well. I can't wait to see what happens next. Also I would love it if you posted it on here when you update. I won't be able to find it if you don't.
I know i'm late, but this comic is really good. I've been reading it all morning, and though i'd like to see how it ends, what you've done so far is more than enough. I'm grateful that you sacrificed your time and energy to share your talent.
Three years and we're still here, and at least I'm gonna continue reading this again and again from time to time until I see an update or, in the worst case, something saying that you will no longer be doing the comic. 'Cuz believe me, it's sad having hope when you see this page and at the same time knowing that have been three years and the most reasonable thing to do is giving up.
BTW I love the comic.
My heart is wrapped around this comic tightly and won't let go. I understand your frustration with people assuming this comic is lost...but it's been a couple years and I don't want this comic to be discontinued. You have a beautiful talent and I adore your work. I hope to hear from you soon and see more of your work
Ahhhhh I'm so down about this, just found this comic and fell in love with it. Unfortunately it's been about... four years since an update from what I see. I hope it gets completed eventually. It's fantastic
I just read this comic for the first time. 2/19/2018 It is really special, and makes me feel happy and warm and fuzzy inside in ways that I will absolutely deny if asked about them by anyone who knows me. Please do finish this work my dear author. You have made something enchanting, and it fills an emptiness in other people's hearts that is sorely needed in this downtrodden negative world. It keeps my heart soft and warm when I read stories like yours.
You're probably not on this site anymore (it doesn't seem to get nearly the traffic it used to), but in case you see this I thought I'd post. This is a fantastic story, well worth waiting for, and I, for one, am still waiting. :)
Years ago I was the one who made the announcement that this Author was going to discontinue this comic. Never finish and never have the intention to do so. It sparked panic and illicited the artists to make THIS VERY ANNOUNCEMENT. The claim was that my announcement was unfounded and that it was rude and disrespectful to make such a claim on his behalf. Well I'm so sorry to say but...
I TOLD YOU SO.
I TOLD YOU SO.
I TOLD YOU SO.
I TOLD YOU SO.
I TOLD YOU SO.
I TOLD YOU SO.
I TOLD YOU SO!!!!!!!
The artist, if you still haven't figured it out will NEVER EVER finish this comic and will never be making strides toward new ones that were hinted at with fun art such as Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, or anything else. It was a good run and it had some interesting themes and side stories like that between the seagull and the crab as well but you guys will just have to face reality. You will never see this stories end nor anymore romance or sexual tension between characters.
Thank you so much for reading this comic but the artist has given up and given in. It happens. We all saw it happen with Tea House. But at least you have to give the artist credit for something. He didn't make a whole bunch of stickers, and other things to purchase, comics for you to purchase, for you to invest your time in money in like the bitch ass of Tea House did only to not finish the comic. This was free so be grateful. Perhaps write your own version of the fairytale in yaoi form. The story itself is in the domain so it's not like you can't.
Fairwell Yaoi Tales. It's okay you stopped but why give false hope? That was kind of rude don't you think? I suppose most fans forgot about it anyway.
