Missveryvery's arm is still hecka broken, but she managed to do a bunch of pages despite me yelling at her to stop drawing with her hecka broken arm! So now she can keep going at a more leisurely pace that her poor, hecka broken arm can take! We're back to Wed updates!
Thanks so much for everyone's patience and thanks SO much to everyone who provided us art so we weren't totally dead for weeks and weeks!

Hey everyone, I thought I'd say a little something here given the circumstances.
So if you've been checking in on the site here you know I broke my arm.
If you didn't know and just now got in again, remember how the last time we posted a page we were going "come see us at Sakura-con!". Well, 2 days after Sakura-con I broke my right arm. You know, the thing I draw with. I won't uh, go into all the details because that's a bummer.
Mostly I don't have the stamina and control I once had so I'm building that back up again. Drawing for work and then drawing more afterwards hurts, sometimes a lot, but the more I draw the more my hand will relearn. So my arm isn't back up to par but if I don't start working on this comic again I'll lose my mind. I had to buy a Huion pen display or else I wouldn't be able to do this.
But more than that all the patience and support from my creative partner, interpunkt, my friend lazesummerstone, my co-workers, the VERY patient understanding fans and the other general internet people that know me for whatever reason has been amazing and I know that sounds cliche but I really mean it, I'm totes crying as I type this.
While I was laid up, a lot of different artists did art pieces for us to tide over the fans and they're all really great, please go page back and check them all out and check them all out.
I am very, VERY lucky to have a great creative partner and friends and the fans that MAOH has gotten, because many people don't have that kind of support and I didn't even have that support and caring until I was around 21. If this had happened to me before that, this would have ruined my life forever, I would have survived the accident but I wouldn't have survived as a person.
Ok, sort of still a bummer, I tricked you. But I tried to end it on a nice note. I just wanted to come in and say thank you to all of you myself.
Thank you for sharing your struggle and keeping on with your hard work for this comic. If other people couldn't convince you to keep resting, and you said you're losing your mind, then I'll simply appreciate a page that looks as perfect as the other ones. I'm so glad for all the guest artists to keep me here- and you guys should pat yourselves on the back for organizing that. I've seen comics go on complete hiatus (and they have mostly started up again) so it is really the extra mile to offer something on your break.
Triumphant music plays~
Congratulations on the partial recovery Missveryvery! I can safely say that the other readers and I are ECSTATIC that you've recovered enough to draw again!
But as a fellow artist, I must implore you not to overtax your arm! Take it slow and don't be pressured to churn out weekly comics! I'd much rather see fewer updates than you never regaining full use of your arm.
While I can't express my feelings well in words, please know that my prayers are with for a speedy recovery, and also know no one can hold it against you if you need to slow or even stop updates again if your arm and mind need time to fully heal.
Thank you for all the work you do and I hope that your recovery continues!
