Anyone still reading this thing?
So, anyway, the first thing you might notice is that this page looks considerably smaller. The navigation bar on the left has fewer links, and the big ol' thumbnail right on the front page that spoiled every new chapter is gone. The reason for the latter is obvious, but I'll explain the former right now.
The LiveJournal feed is gone because nobody uses LiveJournal anymore. I may instead move the news feed to Dreamwidth, or better yet, start updating on an actual schedule so people can know when the hell a new comic's coming out without having to be notified on other sites.
As for the TV Tropes link... well, just having a link to the article from this site makes it obvious that I'm the only one who edits it in the first place. I'm sure any tropers who actually read Demon Blade can find the article themselves.
Last link to be deleted is the shop. Funny story about that. After my umpteenth computer crash and having to reinstall everything for the umpteenth time, I finally rolled something higher than a 1 on my perception check while unpacking my fonts and realized something: The fonts I've been using are for non-profit use only. So, a bunch of the products in my shop were illegal! That got me to close it up pretty quickly. I may open it again with just the products that don't have words on them, but I doubt it. Nobody buys anything anyway and I'm sure I look like a sellout in the process of making no money, so that's a double-fail right there.
As for chapter 25, it's coming. After several delays, I now have a chance to work on it without... well, delays. If it doesn't come out this month, you can expect it in early April for sure. And it's gonna be a big one, let me tell you. It's nearly twice as long as the average chapter!
