Hey there everyone, Addis here with a note about GDC.
So, as most of you noticed, we only released one chapter last weekend instead of the two we’ve been doing for several weeks. While most of you have been appreciative for our hard work, there has been around a 20% backlash on us from fans. In a normal chapter, we get around 120 comments from readers. With only one release this week, we had another 35 comments (that have since been deleted) as well as emails to us complaining and criticizing us for not releasing a second chapter.
I was just not going to say anything, but it was becoming such a common comment an email over the last 4 days (yes, 4, because people started complaining even before we released chapter 99), that I wanted to clarify something to all of our readers.
With the influx of readers due to GDC, we have gotten more rude comments. Most of you do not deign to comprehend that we are real people behind the scenes. We all go to school, have jobs, have families and real life issues just the same as you do. When we get an email that says, “Why didn’t you do two chapters?” “Where’s the other chapter?!! >:(“ “Waiting for that next chapter!” “Why are you not releasing another chapter!!??” “If you’re not releasing the next chapter, I might as well MTL.” “I am so disappointed you guys didnt do 2 chapters!” It may seem like an innocent question in your eyes, but when you receive 20ish of those questions daily, it becomes a very rude thing to ask.
One of the things I have always said is that we will never drop a project. We will always finish it, even if we have to go through 10 translators before we see the last chapter. Please do not try to rush us, we will finish the novel. Most of you didn’t even realize that chapter 99 was the same length of 97 and 98 combined. It’s these little things readers fail to notice in their excitement to read the next chapter.
So, as a reminder, please be courteous, respectful, do not post spoilers and do not ask for us to hurry up or why we didn’t do more than one release.
We will get the novel finished before June. Please be patient.
