Yeah, I’ve lived in a few. And now Penelope’s stuck in one.
It took me two weeks to figure out what coa//005 would be. Originally I had this all planned out, a weird and intense story about a grocery store… but then I realized how it’d be far more appropriate for volume//002. (I’m doing it again, aren’t … committing to a myth arc of epic proportions. I hope you’re happy.)
That left me high and dry with no story idea. The obvious solution was to pull Penelope and Gregory back into play, since otherwise they’d go another 2-4 stories before getting a focus, but what to do with them? Eventually I figured out what to do with them, recycling an old idea I was going to jettison and rejiggering it to be a Penelope piece. (Gregory features heavily in the intro, but he’ll be departing the story after that. The results of his quest will be featured later.)
This is a very long way of saying “New story, Penelope’s in it, go read dammit.”
Not much up so far, but I’d love to hear your thoughts on it. More to come next week.
