Okay, so... this is the last 'complete' page in the buffer.

I've been thinking about the cancellation of the comic. I know I'm not in the best state of mind as of late (stressed/depressed) and perhaps I need to stop and think about this a little more. Honestly, I really don't know what to do anymore.

I want to continue PRS, but at the same time, I'm not sure I've got the energy, time, or motivation for it. For those who didn't read the April News post, I've been having some health issues that have been making things a bit more difficult.

I'll spend a little time to think more on the future of PRS for now. Sorry for all of this. I know better than to make decisions when I'm in this state. v-v

At the very least, until I decide what I will be doing with PRS, I will continue to work on the buffer pages that I had already started.

On that note- this Tuesday update was meant to be a bonus update reward.

Well... whatever you decide to do, I will personally do my best to understand and continue to support your work. Your art is fantastic no matter what you're drawing, from pokemon to dragons. :3

If you want my two cents; don't cancel the comic. If you've gone to a doctor (and gotten help) and confirmed that you have depression,then don't make the decision of discontinuing the comic. If there was ever a time to make that decision, it would be AFTER you get your issues sorted out.

It seems though that you're not really enjoying working on this though, and so while it's ultimately up to you to decide what you want to do, I would go on a hiatus until you've gotten your depression sorted out. It's not something that's going to magically go away by ignoring it, and won't go away until you do something about it. It's a big deal to have depression, and the longer you wait to deal with it, the worse it'll get.

Please, just worry about yourself first before the comic. No one with half a brain is going to be angry at you for putting yourself before free entertainment.

If you want to talk about this some more, feel free to PM me. If not, I hope you're AT LEAST talking to someone about this, because this is something where you need the help of others to get through.

@XlvMckaydvlX: Thanks for the concern! I have gone to a doctor, but I wouldn't go as far to say I have full-out depression of any sort... One of the symptoms of what I've been diagnosed with IS depression, but it doesn't mean I have it... it is however, effecting my mood to some extent as well as my overall energy.

I think the main problem is that I'm just letting all of the recent stress and such weigh down on me again. I've a bad habit of bottling things up until they blow up in my face- PRS got the brunt of that blow in the aftermath.

No worries, I'll be fine. I just need to relax a bit and stop freaking out over silly thinks.

@Luigi_96: Thanks!

@Koren: They are. It's weird drawing only one of them in a panel though... xD So usually I end up drawing both.

@MoogleSam: Yup. GOGO.

@Nekomata-chan: Well as I mentioned before, I hope you're getting everything sorted while you're being put through all of this stress. As one stranger to another, I'll be convinced that you'll be fine once everything is done and over with.

I hope you don't look too deeply into the lack of feedback as a bad thing. I think it all just depends on where the comic is at certain points in time that dictate how much people comment. As someone who only comments on stuff I enjoy once in a blue moon just understand that we can't always come up with something actually meaningful to say. Just know that as long as you continue to get any number of viewers, that your efforts are appreciated by some.

I'm sorry if I'm overreacting a bit in a semi-public setting. Depression is a bit of a touchy subject having been personally affected by it, as well as having it affected those around me.

@Nekomata-chan: Well Nekky, as I said before in my previous post to this issue, whatever you decide, you'll always have my support ^^

Again, I honestly hope you get well and recover in due time. My advice is, just take things slow and steady, don't stress yourself out too much because it's not good. And try not to worry too much as well.

And XlvMckaydvlX is right, no one's gonna be mad at you for putting yourself before the comic. What's most important to most of here is that you recover and get better from your depression. *snuggles you close*

And hey, if you need someone to talk to, you can always just PM me and I'll try to do my best to help you too.
