Glad we're ending this on a hopeful note. :)
And that's every chapter I've finished so far! I've made over 200 pages since 2020, but we're only about 1/3 of the way through the tale. (It's four separate stories, it'll be long!)
From now on, chapters will post here in real time, which means it'll be Novemberish before you see the next chapter here. I'll let you know when it's up via my newsletter.
If you'd like to keep reading Elephant Town pages on Mondays, you can read them on Patreon for $2/month! I post new pages every Monday, usually 2-4 pages at a time, whatever I can make that week. (This is code for "depending on how many backgrounds there are.")
Since it's the end of the month*, I'm making the next couple pages free posts on Patreon, so you can read them without even picking a tier. Updates won't be behind the $2 paywall until next Monday, Sept 5.
If you'd rather wait and read it here for free, you can just hit the bookmark button and come back here in late October/November when the next chapter goes up. It'll always be free here, you'll just see everything early (with behind-the-scenes stuff) if you're a Patreon member. :)
Thanks for following along so far! It feels so good to finally share this with an archive system and comments - it's been so rewarding to hear back from you guys. I hope you stick around. <3
*as far as I know Patreon still charges every first of the month, so if you sign up for a tier today, I *think* you'll also be charged on September 1st. I don't want anyone to get double-charged and feel tricked! So I'll send out a newsletter next week to remind you to join then. <-- that links to the newsletter signup if you're not already on it! Alternately, you can just pay for a year upfront and not worry about being double-charged (and you also get 5% off, haaaaay).
