I made it! - It's finished! The Valentines arc that never ends finally ended!
It was, obviously, somewhat different to the other arcs so far, and not only because it concerned the present as opposed to the past.
I may have mentioned this previously, but although this arc had been in planning for about 3 years (and I had planned to start it as soon as marriage equality was achieved in Australia), it was never meant to be this long originally. Part of the reason it ended up so long was because the original draft was a sequel to a planned Christmas special that never got done. But then the whole thing took so long its kind of surreal to not have to work on it anymore.
My main regret is that I couldn't make it look as good as I wanted to due to time constraints, and it lacks the detail of the Two Cities arc.

What's next for Southern Cross? First of all, a break. But I'd like to do some more fun things before the end of the year. Maybe I'll do another request-a-thon for Christmas, or another character poll (I can't help it, I love character polls). What do you think? Comic content will probably go back to short jokes for a while, but there are also some -other- new characters I want to introduce - not butlers, either.

Thank you for reading until the end of this arc - whether you're new or someone who's been here for years already, I hope that you enjoyed it.

eheh no pressure, Can :p
I'm super glad that it ended happily for them! I've been cheering for Mel all this time (since '16, when I started reading) and for Syd since this arc too, so I am very happy.
Congrats on finishing the arc! I have enjoyed it a lot, the character development was excellent (and so were the pancakes :DD)

I'd like a requestathon! I also want to see the new characters.

PS I enjoy the Phar Lap easter egg on this page :D

what if they went on a year-long trip around Europe? or maybe just a month or two, regardless it'd solve the debate lol

Character poll you say? I declare Hobart the winner; despite how little screen time and how dialogue she features in this production, she invoked strong and real emotions from her audience.
^ my totally unbiased opinion

I can't see the strip itself.

@Tamfang: That's odd, I've tried it on different browsers, including on a brand new phone I'm not logged into Smackjeeves on, and I can still see it. What browser are you using?

@Torino: I use Firefox with NoScript, which selectively disables Javascript. Does the strip display depend on statcounter.com or google-analytics.com?

@Tamfang: I do have stat counter installed for analytics but i didn’t think the display depended on this. This is the first I’ve heard of it causing a viewing problem which is unfortunate. But I wouldn’t have expected it to affect the images/pages.
