Couldn't think of a title for this post. Brain must be near death (oh look! A tunnel with a light at the end!)

I'm going to have to slow down these updates as I need to get more real work done. Discipline, discipline...ah, who am I kidding, I am weak!
But there will be less pages. Na.
Looks like I'll be concentrating on part four instead of reworks of part 3. I'm so close to the end, sooooooo close!!

Many of you had guessed what had happened to that poor guard. Internet cookies for you all.
Felt like a bit too much exposition on this part, but I couldn't think of any other way to have Zhao spread his cards on the table (or Pai Sho tiles).
That's why I'm no writer :B

Next: You stay out of Azula's way and watch too.

And you should be scared of her. That's only proper.

woooo...this looks like a showdown.
well, at least the exposition is a bit too much, but it's still a good execution on Zhao's part if you ask me. ^_^

I haven't learned yet on how not to do too much exposition. Mea Culpa.

Oh my goodness. :D Azula looks so awesome in that final panel.

I was thinking of you today while I was driving on my way home from work, and this comic too. I want so badly to see Water Tribe published in some way or another, because if I can't hold a copy of this in my hands, while on my stomach on my bed, I shall be very sad indeed. There's just something awesome about having physical copies of things. =) Here's hoping, right?

More hoping: Perhaps we'll someday see more of the Alternate Timeline. It'll be continued when it's continued, I know, but it makes me tingly just thinking about it.

Gotta keep hoping. But publishing won't happen via normal channels that's for sure (unless the good folks at Nick suddenly go crazy, ha ha!).
Oct. 26th, 2008 06:22 am (UTC)
omg,omg,omg!!!! She's going to attack Water Tribe people or something???? Noooooo!!! She's so evil!!
Ok, ok, I'll try to calm myself , soo...
we're getting pretty close to THE end??? Wow!! that's so exciting, believe me, I checked this journal like 3 times expecting for your update, and finaly I had luck!! :D
Thanks for all the effort you put in this story,though you are not a writer, stills being a great work! ♥
I wish you are all okay, and I'll wait for the next new pages!! Bye-bye!!

Azula has business to finish, that's all...
I try to update once a week, but I may not be able to for a little while we'll see (not next weekend, it's the APE convention).
As long as people are amused, it's a start. You can come and bash my writing afterwards (with constructive criticism, of course).

Don'tkillthefish,don'tkillthefish,don'tkillthefish,don'tkillthe fish!

The next update could not come sooner. But do pace yourself?
Oct. 26th, 2008 05:33 pm (UTC)
Azula can see the result (Zhao) of killing fishies. She will try not to.
Oct. 26th, 2008 07:35 am (UTC)
Whee, new update! 8D

Ok, Zhao's plan makes sense now. But he's also absolutely right about Azula. Wtf does she want there if not fried fish?

Anyway, wish you lots of fun at APE next weekend! :3

When Zhao tries to have a subtle plan, it never works as well as the ones that have more brawn. As for Azula, her madness has methods (or does it...hard to tell with her now).

*chuckles* Well, this can't be intended to end well. At least, not for the Water Tribes. A signal flare...I wonder who's waiting outside for it, and what it's meant to give the go-ahead for?

I do wonder how Azula was planning to wring any information out of a fish, even a supernatural one. Something in me suspects, from her reaction to his snarking, that that particular little shard of logic might have slipped sideways through the somewhat open lattice of her sanity until Zhao brought it pointedly up.

(Fish torture--whoo. Puts me in mind of one of the higher-end sushi bars I ever went to. You haven't really considered vegetarianism until you've seen a struggling fish skewered by its bare bones to the plate that holds its own elegantly arranged filets. >.>)
Oct. 26th, 2008 05:39 pm (UTC)
Things are getting in a dark spiral, ha ha! Did I say I was having fun?
Oooh, never been to a high end sushi place...I'm not certain I want to now. There's fresh fish and then there's fresh fish!

D'oh! Typo!
Will fix, promise (good thing I have internet extra eyes for this).
Ha ha, knowing Azula's crazy, that's a good mental image to have. And possibly one that popped into Zhao's head too XD

Girlfriend is Ka-RAZY!

Is it just me, or is my hope that the appearance of the gAang will be coming soon?
Oct. 26th, 2008 11:55 am (UTC)
Darn! Butterfingers!


Is it just me, or is my hope that the appearance of the gAang will be coming soon a sure thing?

This is totally not looking good for Zhao! D:
Oct. 26th, 2008 05:41 pm (UTC)
That's not even an understatement, it's a fact.
Oct. 26th, 2008 02:36 pm (UTC)
More Water Tribe pages! What a nice treat for Sunday morning.

Am I the only one that enjoyed Zhao's speech? I like how he stood up to Azula. It reminded me of his speech in "The Blue Spirit" and when he called himself "moonslayer" in "Siege of the North".

Maybe I'm not looking at the drawing correctly, but I couldn't tell it was a person in the ice. Were you just trying to be nice and not show too much gore?
Oct. 26th, 2008 05:43 pm (UTC)
Zhao still has a bit of bravado (silly bravado) left in him.
I must admit, a few panel on page 314 are...iffy. I'll possibly rework them before they go on DA. But yeah, I was self-censoring myself by not showing too much. Trying to stay within the Avatarverse of not THAT dark.

Oh Snap son! Let's go! ><

XD Luv that part on the 4th page, Zhao is all "Wha' you goin do!? You can't get a fish to talk!"
Smug bastard XD
Oct. 26th, 2008 05:44 pm (UTC)
How could he resist rubbing Azula's nose in it. He loves to gloat!
Oct. 26th, 2008 04:29 pm (UTC)
Oh yikes. This just keeps getting darker... not that it's a bad thing story-wise.

I actually thought that the exposition was appropriate. It makes Zhao seem a little more desperate that he has to "come clean." Sort of.
Oct. 26th, 2008 05:46 pm (UTC)
Slightly darker than the usual avatar stuff, but there were plot things in season two that made me shiver in a nice way :)
Glad the exposition wasn't too heavy and made sense.
Oct. 26th, 2008 04:59 pm (UTC)
Ahh shit what's Azula got planned D: ? Lol I love her craziness.

And I don't know if you did this intentionally, but I thought that the one panel with Azula's silhouette... it greatly resembled Ozai's, especially with the fire around her. I thought that was very clever :)
Oct. 26th, 2008 05:47 pm (UTC)
It's crazy plans but they make sense to her).
Nope, not intentional at all, but I'm glad it worked that way!
Oct. 26th, 2008 06:47 pm (UTC)
Great stuff - the heat is on! Nice dramatic shots of Azula firebending - I've got no problem with the exposition - Blake and Mortimer has way more than that - maybe certain word balloons could be spread out to adjacent panels... one sugg. for p. 317, pn.1 - maybe a medium upshot of Azula with arm raised filling the entire panel?

Do you have an idea of the final page count?



Oct. 26th, 2008 07:42 pm (UTC)
Heh, Blake and Mortimer describes what's in the panels! It makes for continuous heavy reading.
Nice suggestion once again (filing this for later reference).
I don't know how long this will be. I don't work from a scripts, just notes, and sometimes I find myself spreading out events on more pages just to let it breathe a bit better, increasing page count. I say I'm close to the end, but it can stretch a bit more than intended.
